Young Living with Citrus Fresh

Citrus Fresh is just as it sounds: A very fresh, citrus scent. It combines Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, and Spearmint to create this uplifting oil blend. Spearmint is the odd one out, but it keeps these citrus oils uplifted and more refreshing smelling.
  • Orange is elevating to the mind and body and has anticoagulant properties
  • Tangerine sedates and combats anxiety and nervousness
  • Grapefruit is very decongesting and fat dissolving
  • Lemon is purifying and uplifting
  • Mandarin has sedative and slightly hypnotic properties
  • Spearmint supports the respiratory and nervous systems
This combination stimulates the right brain and amplifies creativity. It can help put anxiety on the shelf. It purifies the air.
Diffuse this oil, or put a drop in your water. Taking a drop in your water can increase the uplifting affects and can cleanse your systems.
 There is a possible sun and skin sensitivity, since it’s so citrus-filled.

Young Living with…. M-Grain

Headaches: no one likes them. I can honestly say that I’ve never heard anyone say something like “You know, I could really use a headache right now,” and not be sarcastic about it.
At Under Pressure Therapeutics, we deal with headaches every day. We know what to do for most headaches, and have helped many clients overcome their daily or weekly headaches. We believe that there’s no such thing as a “regular” or “normal” headache. We even have a whole page dedicated to headaches.
Aromatherapy can help immensely when dealing with headaches, and Young Living has an amazing blend especially for headaches. M-Grain combines basil, marjoram, lavender, roman chamomile, peppermint, and helichrysum to soothe headaches and migraines. Basil combats muscle spasms, marjoram is anti-inflammatory, lavender combats insomnia and stress, roman chamomile beats tension and restlessness, peppermint is a powerful pain blocker, and helichrysum has analgesic and anesthetic properties. This combination fights almost any headache.
When using M-Grain, you can dilute it 1:1 ratio of the blend and a carrier oil, diffuse it and directly inhale it, or add a few drops to a bath. You can apply it directly to your forehead, temples, and the back of your neck.

Pain in the jaw

The saying is usually “Pain in the neck, back, or butt.” But you never hear pain in the jaw. Unless you’re a dentist. Jaw pain can be debilitating. It can cause headaches  or migraines, neck pain, ear pain, and make you not want to chew gum. It can make it difficult to focus on anything other than your jaw.
The jaw joint is the only hinge joint in the body that can also move side to side. It is also the only hinge joint that has joints on both sides of the body, necessitating the same motion to be performed on both sides at the same time with the same force. This construction makes the jaw a rather delicate construction and easy to damage.
If you suffer, or have suffered, from jaw pain, you might have talked to a dentist about it, but probably haven’t received much treatment. The issue with TMJ or TMD pain is that treatment still varies drastically from person to person. We have listed on our website some of the symptoms of TMJ.
The cause of these issues varies widely, and in some cases is not known. Causes can range from trauma to repetitive motions to a crown that doesn’t fit right.
Most health care providers, orthodontists, dentists, and such, will suggest every other option prior to surgery, as there have been no long term clinical trials to study the safety and effectiveness of surgical treatments. Because of this, not even exhausting all other options prior to surgery means that the doctor will suggest surgery. Surgery can be very unsafe and damage your ability to eat and talk the rest of your life.
There are some easy ways to deal with pain in your jaw, and sometimes symptoms will subside easily.
  • Exercise several times a week
  • Don’t hold the phone between shoulder and ear
  • Don’t rest chin on your hand
  • Avoid chewing sticky, hard, crunchy, or chewy foods
  • Relax facial muscles
  • Meditate
  • Use hand to support chin during yawning
  • Receive massage and self massage
Relieving the tension in the jaw muscles can help to prevent pain, decrease clicking or locking, and help with headaches and earaches. While massage is among the least invasive treatments, it can be slightly uncomfortable. There are muscles that are inside the mouth that should be worked as well as on the jaw floor. Consistency is key for any goal, especially with these thin, more delicate facial muscles.
Receiving massage shortly after a dental appointment of any kind can help reduce the amount of pain or stiffness that might be caused by the treatment. Receiving massage after any kind of head trauma is also important, as most head trauma results in some amount of jaw dysfunction because of the fragile construction of the jaw joint.
Aromatherapy can help as well as acupuncture and other treatments.
