Blue Cypress- Young Living

💙 FUN FACTS 💙

The word “cypress” is a common name given to several genera of evergreen, aromatic trees and shrubs which belong to the Cupressaceae family, and many of them yield essential oil. This particular cypress oil, callitris intratropica, comes from Australia. The oil’s most striking characteristic is surely its bluish coloring. Derived from the Northern Territory Cypress Pine, this oil is distilled from the barks and heart woods and requires extremely long distillation times of up to 48 hours. Most oil companies do NOT distill their oils properly (so they lack the vital constituents for wellness), so beware of who you purchase from! Historically, blue cypress has many medicinal uses for the Blue Cypress has been used historically for incense, perfume and embalming

💙 WHAT IT DOES 💙

Widely used in cosmetics as an anti-aging agent, it is beneficial to all areas of the skin, everything from the face and beauty routines to delicate baby bottoms when their diapers have rubbed them raw.

Cypress essential oil can help strengthen the gums and tighten muscles throughout the body. The main function is contraction, so cypress oil makes your gums, skin, muscles, and hair follicles contract and strengthens the cavities that hold hair and teeth, etc. It also tightens up loose skin and muscles.

Cypress oil is helpful in promoting calm muscles in the face of spasms, from  the respiratory system and intestines to the muscles in the limbs, making it a wonderful oil for the musculoskeletal system.

Cypress oil stimulates  frequency and quantity of urination, which is beneficial because urine removes excess water and toxins from the body, helps to reduce blood pressure and cleans out the kidneys. Many of the mainstream medications for lowering blood pressure are based on this aspect of detoxing through increased urination.

Other properties of cypress oil make it a good choice for treating wounds- it is a common ingredient in first aid lotions and creams, namely, Cypress oil behaves as a hemostatic and a styptic agent. Hemostatic means that it can help stop blood flow and promote clotting. Styptic primarily means it helps to prevent excessive loss of blood through contraction of the blood vessels. If someone is bleeding profusely, they need a hemostatic agent to speed up the clotting of blood and stop its flow to save their life. Similarly, a styptic agent promotes the contraction of gums, hair follicles, muscles, skin, and blood vessels, thereby stimulating the flow of blood through the blood vessels. Both of these properties can be life-saving.

Cypress oil boosts the respiratory system and increases lung  efficiency. It helps clear any buildup in the respiratory tracts and lungs to make breathing easier during times of seasonal sniffles or the common crud.

Cypress oil is considered to be a very powerful sudorific agent, which means it can cause sweating or perspiration. Periodic sweating helps remove toxins, excess salt, and water from the body, clearing out the pores. Clean pores helps to  keep away bacteria and disease.

Cypress oil endures optimal liver health by regulating a proper discharge of bile- a crucial part of a healthy the digestive process. Because Cypress also soothes muscle tension, it can bring abdominal comfort, for the digestive process or menstrual cycle.

💙 IDEAS FOR USE- TOPICAL/ AROMATIC 💙

  • Apply a few drops with carrier oil topically over abdomen to soothe menstruation flow
  • Apply a few drops over the bladder to increase urinary flow
  • Apply to the underarms to increase sweating and the release of toxins from the body- great to apply before a workout
  • Massage over areas where muscles are continually contracting to promote calmness
  • Apply daily over liver and kidneys (in a rollerball)

Northern Lights Black Spruce- Young Living

🌲 FUN FACTS 🌲

This amazingly GORGEOUS  and incredibly SUSTAINABLE oil is exclusive to Young Living, it comes from Ft Nelson, BC Canada. There, Black Spruce trees are considered weeds and the Canadian government wanted them removed, so YL  sustainably removes and distills them!!! YL helps people clear their land and instead plants aromatics- Einkorn, chamomile, yarrow & fleabane. The self- powered farm Northern Lights farm is completely off the grid; 253 acres run on propane and a water mill. This oil is unique because it is distilled from the entire tree, not just the branches and needles. This ensures that we capture its complete essence during the distillation process!

60% of the richest oil comes from the tops of trees, and this oil contains the same energy as the northern lights- The Lakota Indians often crossed the border to receive healing energy from these lights. The frequency of the Black Spruce oil is incredibly high du to the frequency of the Aurora Borealis

Sacred Frankincense

Sacred Frankincense – Young Living

🎁 FUN FACTS 🎁

What’s the difference between Frankincense (Boswelia Carteri) and Sacred Frankincense (Boswelia Sacra)?

Boswelia Sacra is a smaller molecule, so it more easily passes into your sinuses, while Boswelia Carteri is a much heavier molecule

Sacred Frankincense™ essential oil comes from the distillation of the resin of the Boswellia Sacra frankincense tree. This oil originates in Oman and is the first Omani frankincense to be available to those outside of Saudi Royals or wealthy individuals. Gary Young spent many years traveling to Oman to work with Omani officials to obtain a permit to export Sacred Frankincense for Young Living and also received permission to build and operate a Young Living distillery in the country. The Sultan himself had a DECADES-long relationship with Gary Young, and his Frankincense is the ONLY Omani Frankincense exported in the world- exclusively for Young Living. If any other company claims their oil is from Oman it’s simply NOT TRUE!!

Frankincense farms are family-owned businesses for generations. They are VERY careful with these trees- it is their livelihood for thousands of years and they need the trees for future generations. The trees grow in rocks & sand, which makes very poor soil. Gary Young tried to grow them in the US and they would not grow!

Frankincense resin is acquired by thinly slicing the tree bark and allowing the resin to drip out. Then the resin must “cure” in a cave for 3-6 months until it dries and is ground into a powder (powder in Slique tea) Israel (partner farm) by Dead Sea also has Sacred Frankincense. This is the first time ever these trees have been domesticated in Israel.

But as you know, the Middle East is UNSTABLE! So be sure to stock up on FRANK because you never know when it might not be available!!!

🎁 WHAT IT DOES 🎁

Sacred Frankincense is ideal for those who wish to take their spiritual journey and meditation experiences to a higher level. It has been shown to reduce brain “noise” while enhancing calmness, allowing the brain to better use its own abilities for learning and decision making. This oils is also said to help with aging, skin, respiratory support, mental fatigue, mood elevation, healthy blood pressure, healthy inflammatory responses, stress relief, and soothing the nerves.

Constituents to research:

  • alpha-pinene
  • limonene
  • para-cymene
  • sabinene
  • camphene.

🎁 IDEAS FOR USE – Topical/ Aromatic 🎁

  • Diffuse this grounding, uplifting, and inspiring aroma around your home or office.
  • Add several drops to your homemade moisturizers and creams
  • Incorporate it into your beauty routine by applying it neat.
  • Apply it topically on temples, wrists, or base of neck to enhance meditation practices.
  • Apply topically to bites, scratches, or broken skin
