Myrtle- Young Living

🌳 FUN FACTS 🌳

Myrtle has been widely used as folk medicine for the treatment of digestive, pulmonary and skin problems in many parts of the world. The myrtle plant was associated with the ancient Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. Born from the sea foam, she sought the comfort of a myrtle bush to cover her nakedness, which is why myrtle also represents purity. Greek tradition has it that myrtle was offered to certain men and women as a symbol of honor. The Greeks also valued the plant because of its incredible healing qualities

🌳 WHAT IT DOES 🌳

Greek physicians used the plant oil for lung and bladder conditions, while in Italy, the oil was prescribed to children for coughing. The oil found in myrtle leaves was also used in skincare and as a remedy to regulate menstrual cycle. Today, myrtle oil has been extensively researched for its ability to help balance hormones, specifically the thyroid and ovaries. Myrtle possesses a particularly desirable property; it is an adaptogen, means it  may help regulate a gland depending on the needs of the person.

Myrtle is highly valued for skincare as it helps to minimize oil, open pores and tighten elasticity.  It can also be effective applied topically on location to speed the healing of blemishes

Myrtle is an excellent choice for respiratory support, and is gentle enough for children and elderly alike. It helps to promote healthy mucus levels in your respiratory tract. It encourages easy breathing by helping to open the sinuses

Myrtle makes an excellent deodorizer, helps promote sleep and is used in the aromatherapy world to soothe the nerves and reduce stress.

Clary Sage

Clary Sage essential oil by Young Living

 

Clary Sage- Young Living

💐 FUN FACTS 💐

Originating from the mint family, clary sage was famous during the Middle Ages for its ability to help clear eye problems, This earned it the name “Clear Eyes.” A perennial in the genus Salvi, and its scientific name is salvia sclarea, it is considered to be one of the top essential oils for hormones.

💐 WHAT IT DOES 💐

Widely used for female issues, kidney support, digestive aid and skin enhancers, clary sage affects the hormones, or endocrine system. Clary sage affects the hormones of the body because it contains natural phytoestrogens, which are referred to as “dietary estrogens” that are derived from plants and not within the endocrine system. These phytoestrogens give clary sage the ability to cause estrogenic effects. It regulates estrogen levels and ensures the long-term health of the uterus — reducing the chances of uterine and ovarian cancer.

A lot of health issues today, even things like infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome and estrogen-based cancers, are caused from excess estrogen in the body — in part because of our consumption of high-estrogen foods. Because clary sage helps balance out those estrogen levels, it’s an incredibly effective essential oil.

Clary sage works to regulate the menstrual cycle by balancing hormone levels naturally and helps to alleviate typical pre-menstrual conditions. It has been used effectively in balancing mood as it has been shown to reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels upon to 36%. It also helps with sleep, supports healthy circulation and blood pressure levels,

A study was done of over 8,000 women in labor, and the aromatic benefits of clary sage demonstrated significant effectiveness at lowering maternal anxiety, fear and even pain during labor.  Another study showed clary sage’s remarkable power to soothe menstrual conditions in women
