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.

Ravintsara

Ravintsara- Young Living

🌺 FUN FACTS 🌺

Ravintsara (Ravensara), sometimes called clove nutmeg, is a member of the laurel family. It originated in Madagascar but has a camphorous aroma and qualities similar to eucalyptus. The people of Madagascar refer to Ravintsara essential oil as The Oil That Heals  because Ravintsara is considered another universal oil like Lavender.

🌺 WHAT IT DOES 🌺

It is known to be highly supportive of the adrenal glands as well as respiratory function, healthy bladder function, promotes skin healing, and supports the nerves and the liver. Ravintsara is an overall oil, useful for almost anything, particularly in supporting the immune and respiratory system.

Emotionally, Ravintsara has a mood elevating and stimulating effect, like Rosemary

🌺 IDEAS FOR USE – TOPICAL/ AROMATIC 🌺

• Use at the first sign of immune system compromise to boost immune support

• Add a few drops to a foot bath when you start feeling under the weather

• Use Ravintsara alone or blend with Eucalyptus, Lavender, Tea Tree or Thyme

• Deep inhale from the bottle or put a drop in the palm of hands and cup your hands over your nose

• Diffuse for respiratory support, daytime or night

• Mix with V-6 or another carrier oil and apply topically on location for skin healing support

• Mix into a massage blend to soothe muscles and joints

• Add a few drops to your bath

• Combine ravintsara essential oil with rosemary, rosewood, or tangerine essential oil to combat feelings of apathy. These “pick-me-up” essential oils will help increase energy and mental concentration.

• Use ravintsara in combination with frankincense, ginger or grapefruit essential oils to help your mood. Ravintsara essential oil can sweeten or enhance the other oils it is mixed with, so try using more than one oil if you want to try something new.
