WHY YOUNG LIVING BRAND?:

Michele has researched and tried numerous brands since 1989 and found Young Living to be the highest, strongest, purest, and most consistent quality of essential oils out there. 

Everything from land and seed selection, owning their own farms worldwide, to hand weeding, to essential oil used as pest control, to peak harvest times and methods, (and more), sets Young Living's superior standards and controls apart from all others. Numerous hospitals in the U.S. use and rely on the Young Living brand. (Including St John Hospital & Medical Center in Detroit who used calming lavender on Michele's Grandfather prior to his severe cardiac surgery and ginger after surgery to reduce his nausea.)  Young Living essential oils are FDA approved safe for ingestion and their bottles are labeled for internal use.



 

I look forward to teaching you how to reduce your exposure to toxins and hormone disrupting chemicals in nearly everything your family uses on a daily basis.

Grapefruit essential oil and weight loss

Preclinical research demonstrates that inhalation of grapefruit essential oil stimulates lipolysis (breakdown of fats), thermogenesis (use of calories to produce body heat), and decreases food intake.

Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) essential oil as a potent anti-inflammatory and antifungal drug

Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) essential oil as a potent anti-inflammatory and antifungal drugs.

Author information

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Volatile oils obtained from lemon grass [Cymbopogon citratus (DC.) Stapf, Poaceae family] are used in traditional medicine as remedies for the treatment of various diseases.

AIMS:

In the present study, lemon grass essential oil (LGEO) was evaluated for its in vivo topical and oral anti-inflammatory effects, and for its in vitro antifungal activity using both liquid and vapor phases.

METHODS:

The chemical profile of LGEO as determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis revealed two major components: geranial (42.2%), and neral (31.5%). The antifungal activity of LGEO was evaluated against several pathogenic yeasts and filamentous fungi using disc diffusion and vapor diffusion methods.

RESULTS:

LGEO exhibited promising antifungal effect against Candida albicans, C. tropicalis, and Aspergillus niger, with different inhibition zone diameters (IZDs) (35-90 mm). IZD increased with increasing oil volume. Significantly, higher anti-Candida activity was observed in the vapor phase. For the evaluation of the anti-inflammatory effect, LGEO (10 mg/kg, administered orally) significantly reduced carrageenan-induced paw edema with a similar effect to that observed for oral diclofenac (50 mg/kg), which was used as the positive control. Oral administration of LGEO showed dose-dependent anti-inflammatory activity. In addition, topical application of LGEO in vivo resulted in a potent anti-inflammatory effect, as demonstrated by using the mouse model of croton oil-induced ear edema. To our knowledge, this is the first such report to be published. The topical application of LGEO at doses of 5 and 10 µL/ear significantly reduced acute ear edema induced by croton oil in 62.5 and 75% of the mice, respectively. In addition, histological analysis clearly confirmed that LGEO inhibits the skin inflammatory response in animal models.

CONCLUSION:

RESULTS of the present study indicate that LGEO has a noteworthy potential for the development of drugs for the treatment of fungal infections and skin inflammation that should be explored in future studies.
