My Essential Oil Journey

 

Several years ago, I decided to actively improve my health and wellness.  It began with removing my chemical exposure, and improving my diet and habits.

Then I discovered Essential Oils.  They were in perfect alignment with the journey I had undertaken to improve my wellness and that of my family.

I chose Young Living, because they are the only company that has a Seed to Seal Guarantee.  They guarantee that their product, from the heirloom non GMO seed they plant, to the bottle you receive, is not adulterated or chemically treated.... they are the ONLY company that GUARANTEES that.  They control the whole process, and many of the farms their plants are grown on.

I love learning all about Essential Oils... their history, their properties, their uses.... and I love sharing everything I know!

Check out the Event Tab, and join me at one of my events, to share your story with me!

I hope you enjoy discovering this website, and reading all about the best oils on the planet.  Contact me if you have any questions, or if you need any help navigating your "oil" journey.

 Carrier Oils

Carrier Oils

What are carrier oils? Carrier oils are naturally derived from vegetarian sources and have a neutral smell. They aren’t volatile like essential oils, which makes them an excellent medium for dilution and application.
What aren’t carrier oils? Vegetable shortening, butter, and margarine are best left in the kitchen—they’re not intended for topical use. Mineral oil and other petroleum derivatives like petroleum jelly should also not be used as carrier oils.
How are carrier oils used? Essential oils are volatile, which means they evaporate rapidly and contain the natural smell and characteristics of the plant. This can make them too strong to apply undiluted. Carrier oils do not evaporate or have a strong aroma, making them the perfect pair for diluting especially strong essential oils—reducing the concentration of the essential oil without altering its therapeutic qualities. When you dilute an essential oil with a carrier oil, you can also control its concentration before applying.
Grapeseed Oil Light and thin consistency… Well suited for massages; leaves a light glossy film over the skin… Moisturizing… High in linoleic acid… Relatively short shelf life
Sweet Almond Oil Slightly sweet, nutty aroma… Medium consistency… Absorbs relatively quickly; leaves a slight hint of oil on the skin… Rich in vitamin E and oleic acid… Moisturizing… Good all-purpose carrier oil
V-6 A proprietary Young Living formula combining fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, wheat germ oil (contains a lot of vitamin E and acts as a natural preservative), sunflower oil, and olive oil… Moisturizes and nourishes the skin… An excellent carrier oil for all essential oils and applications
Jojoba Oil Slightly nutty aroma… Medium consistency… Superior, non-greasy absorption, similar to the skin’s natural oils… Moisturizing for skin and hair… Long shelf life
Olive Oil Popular, easy-to-find oil used in both topical and culinary applications… Thicker consistency; leaves an oily feel on the skin… Stronger aroma… Good source of oleic acid (omega fatty acid)… Relatively short shelf life
Fractionated Coconut Oil Unlike coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil is liquid at room temperature…No noticeable aroma…Absorbs well; leaves skin feeling silky and moisturized; non-greasy…High in essential fatty acids…Long shelf life
Coconut Oil Solid at room temperature… Distinct coconut aroma… Solid white color… Leaves a moisturizing, oily feeling layer on top of the skin… Long shelf life
Cocoa Butter Solid and difficult to work with at room temperature…Best used when melted and blended with other carrier oils…Sweet, chocolate aroma
Shea Butter Solid at room temperature….Nutty aroma….Cream colored…Moisturizing to skin and hair; leaves behind a moisturizing, waxy-feeling layer
 Adaptogenic Oils

Adaptogenic Oils

Several essential oils act as natural balancers. These are called “Adaptogens”, 
and they create a reaction in the body that helps t achieve a state of balance.
Some essential oils can be both “relaxant” & “stimulant”.
Adaptogenic oils create a normalizing influence on the body, 
by not over-stimulating nor inhibiting normal body functions, 
but by creating a exerting a balance.
An adaptogen has the ability to help the body cope more 
effectively with stress.
Adaptogen essential oils are derived from herbs that posses 
the power to both sedate & stimulate depending on the actions needed.
Adaptogens recharge the adrenal glands, which control 
stress hormones emotional changes.
The adrenals store dopamine, norepinephrine & epinephrine. 
These are responsible for the fight-or-flight response.
Since adaptogens normalize the body, they let it work productively 
when stressors are not physical threats.
 This can improve general health and performance!
Lemon s an adaptogenic oil. It works on the nervous system, 
acting as a relaxant when needed, or supporting your body’s 
adrenals when necessary.
Peppermint & Spearmint are also essential oils that are both
 “relaxant” & “stimulant”.
Lavender is another oil that posses both sedative and stimulant actions.
 The sedative actions can alleviate palpitations and nervous tension, 
while it can have a stimulating effect for someone with depression.
An adaptogen such as the Stress Away blend, can help your 
body naturally help its Melatonin production at the end of the day, 
when your body needs to rest. Then it can support the proper 
functioning of your adrenal gland’s release of Cortisol in the morning, 
so that your day is balanced and you are not overwhelmed with nervous energy.
