Single Essential Oils: Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum)

helichrysum

Did you know that there are 500 different species of Helichrysum, but only one…Helichrysum italicum…may be used therapeutically in medical aromatherapy?

Young Living carefully farms Helichrysum italicum in Split, Croatia.

💲🌼💲Helichrysum italicum has one short growing season each year which means the supply of pure, therapeutic-grade Helichrysum can be somewhat erratic making it’s essential oil a precious commodity indeed!!!

Helichrysum

You may have also heard of Helichrysum by its common names; EVERLASTING or IMMORTELLE. 🌼🌼🌼

🕵️‍♀️ Helichrysum has been studied in Europe for its enormous ability to promote healthy cell regeneration and normalize inflammation…Helichrysum is a key ingredient in expensive French beauty preparations 💄💄💄 such as L’Occitane en Provence‘s”Crème Divine” and “Skin Renewal System“, due to it’s chemical composition which supports daily rejuvenation and nourishment of cellular activity.

💙 PanAway® essential oil blend in your Premium Starter Kit from Young Living, contains Helichrysum italicum, as well as wintergreen, clove, and peppermint, all essential oils with unique pain relieving properties. More on PanAway@ here: https://ouncesofprevention.me/…/essential-oil-blends-panaw…/

“For those familiar with herbal medicine, Helichrysum is to Aromatherapy as Arnica is to Herbalism. Put simply, Helichrysum is a must have for traumas and first aid, swelling and scars.” [Veriditas Botanicals]

Helichrysum may also be found in the Young Living Essential Oils blends ‘Aroma Life™’, ‘Awaken™’, ‘Brain Power™’, ‘DEEP RELIEF™’, ‘M-Grain™’, and ‘Trauma Life™’.

“Helichrysum is a powerful anesthetic and analgesic and reduces pain from inflammation and muscle spasms.” [Essential Oils Desk Reference, 6th Edition, ©2014]

🌱 Helichrysum contains Neryl Acetate (over 40%) and di-ketones. These compounds are highly regarded for their exceptional regenerative and soothing properties, increasing blood flow and circulation to the region of application.

🌼 Helichrysum contains Alpha-, beta-, and gamma-curcumenes, which normalize inflammation.

💚 “Helichrysum also contains Di-ketones, which possess superb ability to promote healthy regeneration of new cells and tissue.” [Veriditas Botanicals]

Golden Dewdrop FACE SERUM

IMG_4786

THE BASE:  Visit your local health store or pharmacy for quality Apricot Kernel Oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E skin oil, and pure vegetable glycerine.

In a 25 to 50 ML glass serum bottle or dropper bottle, add the following (see links above):

1 ounce Apricot Kernel oil

1/2 teaspoon Jojoba oil

1/4 teaspoon pure Vitamin E skin oil

1 drop pure food grade Vegetable Glycerine

ADD THE FOLLOWING PRECIOUS Young Living Essential Oils TO THE ABOVE D.I.Y. BASE:  (Note: You can start at the top of this list of anti-aging and protective essential oils – add the ones you have, and skip the ones you don’t until you acquire them…they may always be added later, and your bottle topped up with the D.I.Y. base.)

20 drops Young Living Therapeutic Grade Myrrh essential oil

10 drops YLTG Frankincense essential oil

10 drops YLTG Palmarosa essential oil

10 drops YLTG Carrot Seed essential oil (How to tell the difference between ‘Carrot Oil’ and ‘Carrot Seed Essential Oil’…The essential oil is generally sold in 5 ml bottles.)

5 drops each YLTG Balsam Fir EO, Cypress EO, Lavender EO, Geranium EO, Ocotea EO, and Roman Chamomile EO.

Exceptional Skin Care graphic

You can totally customize* which YLTG essential oils you choose to add to a glorious D.I.Y. Skin Serum such as this!
…And once you have ingredients for a beautiful base, you will be able to make many many batches. Some people use sweet almond oil and apricot kernel oil. I personally prefer apricot kernel oil over sweet almond as it seems to last longer if i don’t use it all up right away…

The first time I made the serum it contained less than half of the essential oils listed. It has evolved over time into the ‘Golden Dewdrop Serum’, and become a favourite part of morning & evening routine 

* Problem skin or Acne? Add or substitute a few drops of Cedarwood, Tea Tree, Rosemary, Elemi, or Juniper.
* Dry Skin? Add or substitute a few drops of Sandalwood.
* Sensitive Skin? Try Jasmine, Neroli, Rose, or Ylang Ylang.

CLARITY™ Essential Oil Blend

CLARITY graphic

We still regularly use all of the single oils and blends which came in our Young Living Premium Starter Kit of essential oils. That box of 11 oils and accessories has been our go-to for many common everyday wellness applications. We have also discovered our favourites “outside of the box” and would like to share one of them with you here…

My husband and I use Clarity™ essential oil blend, formulated by D. Gary Young of Young Living Essential Oils, while working in the office, studying, and preparing for a meeting or to teach a class or group training.

We find that this particular blend alleviates mental fatigue, and really helps to promote a clear mind, mental focus, greater concentration and alertness. Greater perceptiveness, memory retention and recall are what we’re personally experiencing whenever we use this blend. Modern research indicates that specific oils within this blend may assist in the decalcification of the pineal gland and in offloading heavy metal accumulation in the brain – improving what is commonly referred to today as “brain fog”.

The stimulating essential oils in Clarity™ blend include Peppermint and Rosemary, both traditionally used to promote mental sharpness and to renew energy levels.

Other pure essential oils found in this blend include Lemon, Basil, Roman Chamomile, Coriander, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Jasmine, Palmarosa, and Cardamon.

Looking for a naturally balancing way to enjoy greater mental alertness? Try Clarity™ essential oil blend from Young Living Essential Oils – the world leader today in genuine therapeutic grade essential oils.

APPLICATION:

This blend may be diffused into the atmosphere of your home or workplace using a cool mist ultrasonic diffuser [comes with your Young Living Starter Kit], or diluted in equal parts in a carrier oil such as V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex and applied topically to ears, wrists, forehead, on the back of the neck, on the temples, or to the bottoms of the feet (especially to the large toe). A few drops of Clarity™ essential oil blend may also be added to a handful of Epsom Salt and tossed into bathwater. Many of the single oils in this blend are beautifully soothing and relieving when added to the bath.

Greening Our Cleaning: D.I.Y. Fabric Softener

 D.I.Y. NATURAL NON-TOXIC FABRIC SOFTENER RECIPE

img_3481

CLOTHES DRYING / ANTI-STATIC / SOFTENING: Start by using silicone or other dryer balls such as those made from pure wool, in an electric or gas clothes dryer, to prevent static electricity. You can place a drop or two of a pure essential oil of your choosing onto or inside of one of these dryer balls for scent and to kill microbes.

“I remember ditching dryer sheets around about 1987, and didn’t use anything at all in the dryer until someone invented the little silicone “hedgehogs” as i like to call them. Now there are 100% wool dryer balls to which you can add a drop or two of your favourite essential oil or blend. The box says they reduce static, reduce drying time by 25%, eliminate wrinkles, are safe for sensitive skin, and soften clothes naturally.”

“This week I added a drop of Young Living’s ‘Purification’ essential oil blend to wool dryer balls and really loved the way the clothes DIDN’T smell when I was putting them away!”

“Some people use a rolled up ball of tinfoil to eliminate static electricity.”

You can also easily and economically make your own liquid fabric ‘softener’ using the recipe above, that works, and will not harm you body or the environment. It is especially nice to use when washing flannelette sheets!

Dishwasher Tabs: D.I.Y. with essential oils

IMG_1174
by Diana E. Natalie Johnson
PHOTO CREDITS: Michelle Anderson. RECIPE PROVIDED BY: Michelle Anderson of ‘The Glow Drops’.

So you open the dishwasher to put away the “clean” dishes and are hit with a cloud of synthetic chemical scent – enough to give some people a headache. Your forks taste like cheap perfume, and your drinking glass smells like a dryer sheet. First world problem, yes, but one we would chose to avoid. Especially as we become more diligent in kicking harsh chemicals out of our lives and inviting nature’s remedies, healers and detoxifiers in…

These D.I.Y. dish tabs WORK and are EASY to make, providing a safe, cost-effective alternative to those heavily perfumed and potentially toxic commercial dish tabs or pods

IMG_1170

A shout out to my dear friend Michelle, of The Glow Drops, a vibrant Young Living essential oils group, for providing us with this D.I.Y. and the lovely visuals to go with it.

D.I.Y. DISH TABS Ingredients:

For one batch you will need…

Glass or stainless steel mixing bowl, measuring cup, a half teaspoon measure, an ice cube tray to use as a mould, and a storage container.

1 cup baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)

1/2 cup fine sea salt

1/4 cup citric acid

1/2 to 1 Tablespoon  Thieves™ Household Cleaner (a truly all-aurpose ‘Essential Oil Infused’ concentrate). NOTE: Keep adding Thieves concentrate in 1/2 teaspoon increments until the mixture holds together loosely when squeezed in your hand. SEE PHOTO BELOW…

(Note: Citric acid occurs naturally in citrus fruits. As an isolated compound it is sold as a white crystalline powder, available at your local bulk foods store. Citric acid is used as a food additive/preservative, and as a powerful cleaning agent. A natural chemical, Citric acid is a weak organic tricarboxylic acid having the chemical formula C₆H₈O₇.

METHOD & USAGE:

In a glass or stainless steel mixing bowl, measure and mix all ingredients JUST UNTIL moistened.

IMG_1162

SUCCESS HINT: START WITH THE 1/2 teaspoon of Thieves™ Cleaning Concentrate and only add the additional half teaspoon if needed for the mixture to loosely hold its form.

Press into an ice cube tray. Let sit to dry overnight.

Carefully pop your dish tabs out of the ice cube tray and store in a container.

Use as you would commercial dishwasher tabs – add to machine for any cycle.

USAGE TIP: Your D.I.Y. Dish tabs also make great ‘toilet bombs’. Toss one in the bowl and watch it fizz and bubble! Swish with a cleaning brush and flush! Safe for septic systems and not harmful to municipal water supplies.

Citrus Fresh™ Essential Oil Blend

IMG_4221

Young Living’s Citrus Fresh Essential Oil blend offers the benefits of several Cold-Pressed Citrus Essential Oils.

Citrus Fresh

Citrus Fresh, a favourite blend for Cool Mist Diffusing, contains pure essential oils cold pressed from the peel of Orange, Tangerine, Mandarin Grapefruit, and Lemon. These oils are strong natural antiseptics which may work well for killing airborne bacteria. Citrus oils are also known for their relaxing and calming effect, and for enhancing the feeling of well-being in children.

Pure Spearmint essential oil is added to the blend providing additional anti fungal and antiseptic properties and acting as an antidepressant by relieving mental fatigue. Both the citrus oils and the spearmint in Citrus Fresh are known in aromatherapy to lift one’s spirits and bring emotional balance. This is part of the joy of peeling and eating oranges. It’s an aromatherapy experience!

Flavouring drinking water with this blend not only helps to purify the water but may benefit the lymphatic and immune systems as well.

CHEMISTRY OF CITRUS OILS:

Citrus trees produce and store their essential oil in their fruits in “Endodermal Secretory Sacs” ~ spherical sacs located in the peel just below the surface of their skins. The secretory sacs fill up with essential oil molecules as the fruit ripens.

“The one component that citrus trees produce in abundance in their fruit peels is a molecule called Limonene”, writes Dr. Cole Woolley, PhD.  “You also know it as D-Limonene. Limonene is detected by your nose as a ‘citrus, orange, sweet, and fresh’ aroma….Orange oil is nearly exclusively composed of LIMONENE (95%), with only 5% being composed of about 100 other molecules. Lemon oil contains about 65% Limonene”.

Limonene is a potent antioxidant photochemical that prevents DNA damage linked to cancer and accelerated aging, and has been extensively studied in over 50 clinical studies for its ability to combat tumor growth.

The essential oils in Citrus Fresh™ blend may aid digestion, balance and increase metabolism, benefit the cardiovascular system. Lemon oil, for example, has been investigated for its potential to reduce LDL cholesterol levels and stimulate normal peristalsis (the rhythmic contraction of the bowel which aids proper elimination). 100.00% pure and unadulterated cold pressed Lemon essential oil creates alkalinity in the body, and improves the function of the pancreas, gallbladder and liver.

Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend: APPLICATION:

AROMATIC USE: You may wish to diffuse Citrus Fresh™ to lift mood, and/or combat depression, anxiety, insomnia, or nervousness.

TOPICAL USE: Did you know that D-Limonene in citrus oils can support lymphatic drainage and help you overcome a cold fast!?  Mix Citrus Fresh™ with coconut oil or V-6 carrier oil and rub it on your neck, or apply 2 to 4 drops on Vita Flex points on feet or hands.

HOUSEHOLD CLEANING: A few drops of Citrus Fresh EO blend may be added to your natural ‘truly green’ D.I.Y. household cleaning and laundering products for added anti-microbial and aromatic benefits! SEE THE ‘Essential D.I.Y.’s’ section of this ‘Ounces Of Prevention’ blog for ideas and ‘recipes’.

DIETARY USE: The citrus oils in this blend as well as the spearmint are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) for human consumption by the FDA. A drop may be diluted in a teaspoon of honey or in four ounces of a beverage such as almond milk. One or two drops may be ingested mixed with olive oil in a cellulose or gelatin capsule.

CAUTIONS: Use of citrus oils as a dietary supplement not recommended for children under 6 years of age. Use in greater dilution for children over 6 years of age.

ALL CITRUS OILS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE ‘PHOTOSENSITIZING’ TO SKIN WHEN APPLIED TOPICALLY…Simply avoid direct sunlight (i.e. UV rays) for up to 12 hours following topical application use of citrus essential oils.

Essential Oils & Pregnancy

EOs & Pregnancy Graphic

Millions of women throughout history have used herbs and aromatic plants for various reasons during pregnancy and childbirth.

Which pure plant essences (a.k.a. essential oils) and herbal preparations available to us today, are helpful and safe to use during pregnancy?

Helpful Articles & Reference Guides:

We’re linking you to some excellent articles and reference guides we have found which will help you to answer these important questions…

The first is by pharmacist Dr. Lindsay Elmore: CLICK HERE.

The oils and dietary supplements mentioned in Dr. Elmore’s article, are from our trusted purveyor and world leader in 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils, non-toxic oil-infused personal care products, and natural food supplements with both FDA GRAS certification and Health Canada NHP (natural health product) approval. (See link below).

A second excellent article highlighting oils use and nutritional tips for each week within each trimester of pregnancy…

…may be found here: Essential Oils by Trimester: a Pregnant Woman’s Guide. Please read this second article in its entirety as it pertains to the infographic below.

 Thirdly, here is a link to a PDF on Aromatherapy in Pregnancy

…written by Vicki Hobbs of the Phoenix Therapies Pregnancy Centre listing essential oils safe to use during pregnancy, and those recommended by midwives and aromatherapists to use during labour and birth. The article also lists essential oils to not use during pregnancy.

 And an article by doctor, midwife, and herbalist Aviva Romm…

…entitled Herbal Medicines in Pregnancy: What’s Safe & What’s Not.

Aviva writes, “Most of what is currently known about botanical use during pregnancy is based on a significant body of historical, empirical, and observational evidence, with some pharmacologic and animal studies. Overall, most herbs have a high safety profile with little evidence of harm. Pregnant mommas commonly experience minor symptoms and discomforts for which the use of natural remedies may be gentler and safer than over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription pharmaceuticals.

Few reported adverse events have occurred, and those that have typically involved the consumption of known toxic herbs, adulterations, or inappropriate use or dosage of botanical therapies.  However, lack of proof of harm is not synonymous with proof of safety. Some of the harmful effects of herbs may not be readily apparent until after use has been discontinued, or may only occur with cumulative use, so it’s important to be smart and safe and use only those herbs in pregnancy with a proven track record and a good safety profile.”

Dr. Romm has included two helpful charts – one listing herbs considered safe in pregnancy, and another with herb categories to avoid during pregnancy. Again, this comprehensive article may be found HERE.

♥ Lastly, for a detailed chart from aromatools.com specifically on the use of Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth, and Baby, CLICK HERE.

The following chart has been provided by Young Living Essential Oils and is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent illness. If you plan on using essential oils from any purveyor during your pregnancy, be sure to consult your health care practitioner and consult with your physician immediately if any health concerns should arise.

DJ’s Natural Anti-Frizz Hair Spritz

IMG_3768

Tame your hair naturally. Mist a bit of this D.I.Y. Hair Spritz onto damp hair before drying. You’ll be amazed at how shiny and smooth your hair becomes almost immediately, with lasting styling power, and you’ll be enthralled with how heavenly it smells!

The base for this beautifully natural anti-frizz hair spritz is witch hazel and pure distilled water. To this we simply add a wee bit of Himalayan pink salt*, real vanilla extract (made from vanilla beans & alcohol / no propylene glycol), and pure therapeutic grade essential oils known to be excellent for the health of the hair and scalp.

Witch hazel is a distilled oil, sometimes called a topical astringent, derived from the bark and leaves of the North American Hamamelis virginiana shrub. Witch hazel’s medicinal properties reduce irritation (to hair follicles) that may inhibit new growth. It is gentle, cleansing, and moisturizing.

The same properties that make witch hazel beneficial to the skin make it good for the hair and scalp. Using witch hazel on your hair balances out its hydration level freeing it from frizz and giving lots of shine!

INGREDIENTS: For a 4 ounce (or larger) bottle with a spray pump or trigger sprayer…

METHOD: Combine all of the ingredients in a 4 ounce or larger spray bottle (pump sprayer or trigger sprayer). Shake well until the pink salt is dissolved.

USE & APPLICATON: Shake well before each use. Spray on damp hair before blow drying or styling.

*About the Pink Salt: Himalayan Pink Salt naturally contains 80+ minerals and elements. Himalayan salt crystals form naturally within the earth and are made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride (in descending order of quantity).

Because of these minerals Himalayan pink salt can increase hydration, balance pH, and help regulate water content inside and outside of cells.

True Healing Oils

northern-lights-finland

“It takes a life process to produce a living substance. Only God can do that. Chemistry is not all there is to the components of an essential oil. There is also electromagnetic frequency, or life force.”

norther-lights-black-spruce

“If frequency is measured,” writes David Stewart, Ph.D., D.N.M., you find that synthetically produced [man-made] substances are motionless and inert. Zero frequency. At the same time, a naturally grown component in an intact oil gently coaxed from the plant with all of its companion components is vibrant and full of vigor, eager to heal and administer therapy… In fact, there is intelligence in essential oils that have been properly grown and extracted without adulteration. Oils produced by living processes are living. Oils produced by mechanical man-made processes are lifeless.”(1)

Today we find synthetic essential oil ingredients in soaps, cleaning agents, skin care, food, and flavourings, as well as, sadly in the industry of health and wellness. When the oils are extended and adultered for commercial use, their therapeutic biochemical structure is destroyed, making them useful only as perfume for scenting all types of products and as flavouring compounds…

…On the other hand, the chemical structure of a pure essential oil can rapidly penetrate cell membranes, travel throughout the body, and enhance cellular function. For health professionals who have used pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils on patients, it is very clear that there is a powerful life force inherent in these substances, which gives them unmatched ability to interact with cells in the human body.(3)

d-gary-young-northern-lights

OBTAINING OILS THAT HEAL:

“There are a few growers and distilleries in North America that produce high quality oils fulfilling all the criteria for “therapeutic grade.” Young Living is the largest and best know of these…

yl-lavender-field

…Young Living brand oils meet AFNOR/ISO standards [of the European Standardization regulatory organizations] and much more! In addition to meeting AFNOR standards, therapeutic grade oils must also be organically grown, unadulterated, properly distilled, and meet other criteria which few brands other than Young Living oils actually meet…

Therapeutic grade oils are almost never sold in retail stores. Do not expect healing from non-therapeutic grade oils. Over 90% of the oils sold as “essential” in America are food or fragrance grades and unsuitable for healing applications.”(2)

D. Gary Young (Young Living founder) on YL Therapeutic Grade Lavender essential oil…

“One of Lavender’s most important constituents is linalool – responsible for all of the things Lavender can do. A relatively good quality Lavender oil has a linalool acetate level of 4.41.  Young Living’s Lavender has a linalool acetate level of 67.0 ~ the highest produced in the world.”           

From the seeds Young Living plants in the ground to the seals placed on their bottles, the focus is on naturally occurring and high-quality components providing a pristine final product without compromise. This is their “SEED to SEAL” promise of quality and purity.

Lavender“To say Lavender essential oil is just Lavender would be a mistake. Not only are there many different types of Lavender, there are also different methods of seed selection, farming, extracting, and testing methods to ensure the right constituents are contained within the final product. A baking instructor could give 12 students in their classroom the exact same recipe to bake at home and all would come back with interestingly different outcomes.
The same is true with essential oil production. Just because the same Genus and species of plant may have been used, does not mean the same oil will be in the bottle of two different companies. Essential oil production is a delicate science that requires a tremendous amount of knowledge and understanding of proper full production from the beginning to the end. Not all oils are created equal”. ~ Karlie Holtby, Holistic Nutritionist, Lettuce Change

Many people believe that essential oils are God’s medicine for mankind and will provide critical medical solutions in the future. Essential oils could very well be the MISSING LINK of modern health care, brining allopathic and holistic medical practices together for optimal health in the 21st century.(4)
