Young Living with Lavender

I cannot believe that I have not boasted about the amazingness that is Lavender Oil yet!!
Lavender is known for its relaxing properties–most people think of the lovely scent of lavender when relaxation is in order. However, did you know that lavender can be good for:
  • Dry skin
  • Oily skin
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Rashes
  • Blisters
  • Reduce scarring
  • Cuts / scrapes
  • Bruises
  • Soreness / aches
  • Muscle cramps
  • Burns / sunburns
  • Mood stabilizing
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Respiratory infections
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Menstrual problems
  • Hair loss
  • Insomnia
  • Tension
  • Reduce nervousness
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Reduce mental stress (according to a study)
  • … the list goes on ….
Lavender is a must-have in any essential oil tool box! If you can only get one oil, get this one. Among these many reasons for always having lavender on hand, it smells so nice. Because of its powerful yet mild nature, most people can apply it directly to their skin without a carrier oil, although I always suggest having one on hand. Diffuse it, add it to your bath, or place it on your wrists to reap these benefits all day long.
Currently, we have a special going on for you to try lavender:
Regular Price $30.92 (plus tax)
Discounted to $24.75 plus tax until September 30, 2016

Young Living with some Basics

I just want to talk about some of the oils that I use in my everyday life, and why.
Stress Away. Who doesn’t have stress? This calming blend uplifts as well as calms. It’s a mix of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender, and it really invites peace and tranquility. I put it on my shoulders, as I often feel stress there before anywhere else.
Patchouli relaxes and decreases inflammation. It can clarify thoughts and help you discard insecurities. It can also be used as a dietary aid. I put it on my collar bones, just a little bit.
Valor is one of my all-time favorites! The blend empowers and encourages while keeping you feeling grounded. I put it on my feet to keep me grounded, or on my throat when I feel like I need extra help communicating.
Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint are my bread an butter. If I had to choose only 3 oils, these 3 would be it! Lavender is calming and helps with cuts, scrapes, and bruises; lemon is super detoxifying; peppermint helps with soreness, headaches, and more. I’ll put a drop of lemon and peppermint in hot water if I’m having a stomach ache. I’ll put a drop of lavender on my joints when they are achy or over my heart if I’m getting anxious.
If you had to only choose one oil, it would be Thieves. This combination of oils got its name because during the dreaded plague, spice traders would dip their bandanas in a combination similar to this and wrap their faces with it to prevent getting the plague while they broke into houses that had been boarded up because of infected people and steal their valuables. These thieves would not get sick! Young Living has a whole line of Thieves products. I use the oil as a dietary supplement if I’m getting sick or the spray in my throat if I’m getting sick. I use the toothpaste and the mouthwash. I also have the household cleaner you can use for stoves, countertops, and my husband has even used it to clean his car tires! The possibilities are endless.
Young Living also has a line of supplements, products, and recently launched a line called Vitality, which is specifically designed for dietary and cooking use.

Young Living with R.C.

One thing about stress we don’t usually think much about is how we lose control of our breath. For some reason, we think it’s a great idea to hold our breath–that it will make everything better. But that’s not the case. Breathing helps
R.C. is a blend that combines Myrtle, Eucalyptus Globulus, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Lavender, Cypress, Eucalyptus Radiata, Spruce, and Peppermint to open up your lungs and melt away any congestion. It also combats lung infections and relieves allergy symptoms.
Dilute this oil one part to one part, as the amount of eucalyptus (3 different kinds) and mints can be overpowering and can cause skin sensitivity. Diffuse in your home or office. You can also put a few drops on cotton balls and put in or on your air vents.
For more breathing aids, also look at Raven or Breath Again Roll-On.

Young Living with Harmony

Seeking harmony and peace is something I do regularly. This blend from Young Living Essential Oils promotes physical and emotional healing through the aromas. The blend of sandalwood, lavender, ylang ylang, frankincense, orange, angelica, geranium, hyssop, spanish sage, spruce, coriander, bergamot, lemon, jasmine, roman chamomile, palmarosa, and rose oil calms the nerves and keeps anxiety at bay.

  • Sandalwood simulates the pineal gland and helps remove negativity.
  • Lavender relaxes and calms the body and helps combat insomnia and headaches.
  • Ylang Ylang promtes relaxation and restores equilibrium.
  • Frankincense elevates the mind and helps to overcome stress and despair.

Stimulating feelings of achievement and action, Motivation increases strength to overcome fear and procrastination. With the summer coming, it can be a little difficult to stay motivated to do things you need to do. Unfortunately, you have to do them to do the things you want to do.

The mix of Roman Chamomile, Spruce, Ylang Ylang, and Lavender mix to combat insomnia, tension, an restlessness; purge toxins from the liver; release emotional blocks; restore confidence; and improve concentration.

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.

Young Living with… Aroma Siez

I find myself using Aroma Siez a lot lately. It is amazing for muscle cramps and soreness! The mixture of basil, marjoram, cypress, lavender, and peppermint combines to create a nice almost sweet smell.
Basil is an anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, which is great for muscle tension or head aches. Marjoram is another antispasmodic and it’s amazing for sore muscles, sprains, or headaches. Cypress relieves muscle cramps and improves overall circulation and may improve respiratory problems. Peppermint is the most commonly know topical analgesic, which helps alleviate pain and is amazing for headaches. Lavender is the balancing oil that brings this blend to a comforting, muscle balancing blend.
This combination helps to eliminate muscle spasms and tension. I’ve used it on acute injuries, chronic tension, and muscle soreness. It’s good for just after a work out in a bath or applying directly to your most sore muscles. It can also help with arthritis pain and most headaches.
