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.

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.

D.I.Y. Pain Relief Roll-On

img_3529

With two immediate family members in need of ongoing pain relief, one elderly with osteoporosis pain in the low back and hip area, and another with pain related to incapacitation during medical treatment, we have found essential oil therapy to be tremendously effective in delivering immediate pain relief.

When we aren’t available to assist with application of the oils, namely using the Vita Flex technique or Raindrop™ Technique, we encourage self-application using either a convenient roller-ball bottle with appropriate oils diluted in a carrier oil, or a spray bottle with essential oils diluted in a combination of distilled water and witch hazel.

[See Vita Flex Technique feet application chart below]

Recently we gifted each of these family members with a clean ‘upcycled’ 15 ml amber glass bottle, fitted with an AromaGlide stainless steel roller ball top, and filled with the following, including an amazing oil blend which has recently become available in Canada:

‘Recipe’ for a 15ML GLASS BOTTLE BLEND / fitted w stainless steel ROLLER BALL & LID:

~~~ 30 drops Deep Relief™ essential oil blend from Young Living (World Leader in Essential Oils) which contains the following therapeutic grade 100.00% genuine and properly distilled essential oils:

[Peppermint (anti-inflammatory and analgesic), Lemon (invigorating and warming / muscle soreness), Balsam Fir (traditionally used for relief of overworked tired muscles and joints), Brazilian Copal (Copaiba is extremely high in Beta-caryophyllene, a well documented anti-inflammatory traditionally used for muscle aches and pains, stiffness, and nervous exhaustion), Clove (anti-inflammatory and a topical analgesic), Wintergreen (99% methyl salicylate which gives Wintergreen its cortisone-like properties – may benefit arthritis, rheumatism, tendinitis, and other discomfort related to inflammation of  muscles, joints, and bones),  Helichrysum (a powerful anti-inflammatory), Vetiver (antispasmodic and locally warming), and Palo Santo (historically known to relieve muscle pain and promote healing).  Find out more about Deep Relief™ essential oil blend HERE.]

~~~ finish filling bottle with Ortho Ease® carrier oil (massage oil).

[Ortho Ease® is designed to also provide a relaxing, calming blend of vegetable oils and 100% pure essential oils including wintergreen (excellent topically applied for bones), peppermint (analgesic and anti-inflammatory), juniper (antispasmodic, nerve support), marjoram (traditionally used as an antispasmodic, for muscle spasms, arthritic symptoms, rheumatism, stiff joints, sprains, cramps, and headaches), eucalyptus (analgesic, anti-inflammatory), vetiver (rubefacient – locally warming, antispasmodic, and sedative to nervous system), thyme (a warming general tonic to the nervous and circulatory system), and lemongrass (anti-inflammatory, revitalizing, regenerating and strengthening to connective tissue and vascular walls].

deep-relief

At first use, and each application therafter, immediate relief was noted. Those who are using this powerfully effective combo of therapeutic essential oils are giving consistently positive feedback with regard to how much it is benefiting their level of comfort and ability to cope.

For external use only. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use.

Essential Oil Blend: R.C.™

breath-easier-winter-400x400

One of our favourite Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oil blends, R.C.™ (for “Respiratory Care”) is the go-to blend when congested due to the common cold & flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, and allergies, or when combating a sore throat and excess mucous.

Here at Ounces Of Prevention we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about about R.C.™ – as we have put this formula to the test many times ourselves, with younger children, and with our seniors in their eighties.

Each one found relief right away and began to show marked improvement, with mucous breaking up and leaving after one or two days diffusing / inhaling, applying a dilution of the blend topically, and placing a few drops onto a hot compress and applying to the chest area or over the back. The hot compress is an especially practical and effective way to apply R.C.™ with children and seniors.

r-c-blend

Application:

R.C.™ essential oil blend may also be diluted in a carrier oil and applied on the chest, neck and throat, over the sinus area, and even on the Vita Flex* points of the feet. We recommend putting socks on afterwards. For chest congestion, make a ‘poultice’ with a washcloth soaked with very warm water and wrung out ~ place 5 or 6 drops of R.C.™ blend onto one side of the washcloth and place it oil-side-down onto the chest. Cover with a warm towel and leave for 20 minutes.

*Vitaflex* points:

reflexologydiagram

With three different types of Eucalyptus, and a total of ten essential oils in the blend, R.C.™ may have a significant antiviral effect on the respiratory system, and works to reduce lung infection, and decongest the lungs and airways.

Did you know that the first commercial surgical antiseptic solution, formulated in 1879 by Dr. Joseph Lawrence, and later named “Listerine®” after British surgeon Joseph Lister, contained components of the essential oils Eucalyptus, and Peppermint?

Dr. Jean Valnet, MD, World War II army physician and surgeon, was noted to have said, “The administration of diffused aerosol aromatic oils should be common practice in sick rooms, operating theaters, and clinics.”

eucalyptus-globulus

There are many different varieties of Eucalyptus, each having slightly different healing properties…

Eucalyptus (E. globulus) – a powerful germ killer / anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-viral.
Eucalyptus (E. radiata) – anti-infectious, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and a strong anti-inflammatory against sinusitis and bronchitis. Also an expectorant.
Eucalyptus (E. citrioodora) – anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic. Decongests and disinfects the lungs and sinuses.
Myrtle (Myrtus communis)supports and decongests the respiratory system. Used to treat chronic coughs and tuberculosis, Myrtle is an airborne anti-microbial agent, and may also improve oxygenation and work as an expectorant to help discharge mucous. Myrtle is a sinus decongestant and is soothing to throat infections.
Marjoram (Origanum majorana)antispasmodic, anti-infectious, antibacterial, and antiseptic. Relaxing and calming to constricted muscles, Marjoram may relieve spasms in the respiratory system.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, Lavender is a hypotensive, and is balancing and relaxing.
Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) – antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, anti-infectious, mucolytic, decongests, relaxes, and promotes blood circulation and flow of lymphatic fluid.
Pine (Pinus sylvestris) – opens and dilates the respiratory system, particularly the bronchial tract, for better oxygen exchange.
Spruce (Picea mariana) – anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, supports respiratory and nervous system.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) – powerfully soothing to nasal passages and lungs, therapeutic grade Peppermint essential oil is anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and antiseptic, killing airborne bacteria. Peppermint opens nasal passages, reduces cough, and improves airflow to the lungs.

R.C.™ is one of the blends found in Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit of 100 % pure therapeutic grade essential oils, which also COMES WITH AN ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER.

Essential Oil Blends: THIEVES®

thieves

Young Living’s Thieves® blend of highly antiseptic and antiviral essential oils helps protect against viral and bacterial infection and stimulate the immune system helping the body to protect itself against the onset of the common cold and flu.

Ounces Of Prevention respectfully requests that you DO NOT COPY & PASTE FROM THIS ARTICLE: Please do share the weblink.

Thieves® essential oil blend may also help with sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, coughs, strep throat, sore throats, and candida yeast infection. It is also useful in treating gum disease, toothache, cold sores, and canker sores. Thieves® blend may be used externally for bruises, cuts, slivers, and infections. SEE APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.

black plague

THIEVES® therapeutic grade essential oil blend was created by D. Gary Young from research based on one of the more dramatic history lessons regarding essential oils:

During the bubonic “Black Plague” of the 15th century, which in five years wiped out over 25 million people (one third of the population of the region), a band of thieves were caught in the act of robbing the dead and dying. Though the plague was extremely contagious, not one of this band of thieves ever contracted the dreaded plague. They were brought before the King, who forced them to divulge a most curious secret. The thieves had been rubbing oils on themselves to avoid contracting the plague.

The King, eager to protect himself and the royal family, demanded they disclose the formula of herbs, spices and oils they were using to protect themselves.

Soon enough the truth came out. The thieves were all members of the same family – a long lineage of Apothecaries. They say it only takes one generation to lose important knowledge if it is not passed on…We can take a lesson from those who preserved a working knowledge of healing and medicinal aromatic plants, herbs, and spices, and of the powerful volatile oils distilled from them.

M0001669 An apothecary (a man using pestle and mortar). Oil painting

Because of their intimate knowledge of the healing arts, passed down from generation to generation, they were familiar with a combination of specific plant oils that, when rubbed over the human body, would protect the body from contracting this most feared and deadly disease. The King forced the thieves to divulge the specific plant oils used, and the formula for extracting them from the plants. With that vital information in hand, he was thereby able to protect himself and his family from the deadly plague.

The recipe for the “thieves oils” can still be found in the Royal English Archives to this day. In fact, it is widely known that many perfume distillers and tanners in 15th century England were also able to escape the Black Plague because they were exposed in their daily work to the powerful plant oils used in the making of various perfumes and in the scenting of their leather goods. The plant oils they used exhibited phenomenal antimicrobial properties, and they were protected by these antimicrobial actions.

Today, “Thieves” oil is a proprietary blend of pure essential oils tested at
Weber State University, Ogden, UT, during 1997, demonstrated to have a
99.96 percent effective kill rate against airborne bacteria (Gram-negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa) after just 12 minutes of Thieves® diffusion.

The Blend ~ Ingredients:

Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) ~ one of the most antimicrobial, antiseptic anti-infectious of all the essential oils! Clove is also antiviral, and antifungal. Additional benefits: Clove is immune-stimulating, analgesic (stops pain), and aromatically helps create a feeling of protection and courage.

Lemon (Citrus limon) ~ has antiseptic properties and contains immune-boosting properties. It is great for the respiratory system. Lemon promotes circulation, formation of white blood cells, and supports lymphatic function. Additional benefits: Aromatically, Lemon is enhancing to other oils, invigorating, and warming.

Cinnamon Bark (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) ~ part of the anti-plague formula given to Moses (Exodus 30:22-27), cinnamon is one of the most powerful antiseptics known. (I’ve been putting cinnamon in my morning coffee throughout cold and flu season for years!) Cinnamon purifies, oxygenates, and enhances the activity of the other oils in the blend. It is strongly antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Additional benefits: Cinnamon is warming and has a stimulating / toning effect on the circulatory system.

Eucalyptus Radiata (E. radiata) ~ this variety of eucalyptus is anti-infectious, antibacterial, and antiviral, as well as anti-inflammatory. Has a profound antiviral effect upon the respiratory system.

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis CT cineol) ~ is antiseptic and antimicrobial – high in cineole – a key ingredient in antiseptic drugs. Additional benefits: Rosemary may also help to balance heart function, energize the solar plexus, and reduce mental fatigue, even significantly improving memory!

Essential Oil Blends: Joy™

Containing several uplifting oils in use since Biblical times, as well as others known for their mood enhancing properties or “rejoicing the heart” as the writer of Proverbs so aptly put it, this beautiful and intoxicating blend of therapeutic grade essential oils known as Joy™, is available today from Young Living ~ Pioneer and world leader in essential oils.

Joy Blend

“The Biblical writers may not have understood how aromas feed directly to the emotional brain, but they knew by experience, led by God, that certain perfumes, ointments, and incenses brought joy to their hearts, relieved their stresses, brought them peace and calmness, clarified their thinking, uplifted their spiritual awareness, and assisted them in their prayers, worship, and daily living.”(1)

Four Bible passages from both the Old and New Testaments (Psalms 45:7, Proverbs 27:9, Isaiah 61:1,3, and Hebrews 1:9) all have one thing in common. They each refer to aromatic anointing oils as vehicles of joy, gladness, and rejoicing.

“Why would the Bible suggest that a physical substance like an oil be associated with an emotional state?”

This is an important questions answered by Dr. David Stewart, author of Healing Oils of the Bible.

“There is a scientific answer to that question”, writes Dr. Stewart, “The oils of joy or gladness referenced in the scriptures above were all essential oils or vegetable oils containing essential oils. How do we know this? Only essential oils have mood altering properties. Vegetable oils do not. The anointing oils of the Bible always contained aromatic essential oils…all essential oils have emotional impacts. This is why…”

“…It all has to do with the way our noses are wired into the brain.”(2)

Our nose is different from our other four senses (touch, taste, sight, and hearing). Rather than being connected with the rational part of our cerebral cortex, our nose is wired to the brain backwards. The olfactory nerves connect directly to the “diencephalon” or the “amygdala” otherwise referred to as the limbic system or “emotional / central brain”. This system includes neural cortex and endocrine glands, so it functions both electrically and chemically via hormones.

olfactory-illustration-how-essential-oils-work

The emotional brain does not respond to words, whether read, spoken, heard, or felt by braille. The emotional brain only responds to smell.

Your central brain stores your emotional memories somewhere in and throughout your body. The brain-body connection is very interesting and many researchers believe the roots of many illnesses and physical conditions stem from buried, stored, repressed emotions that we have not faced.

Essential oils are known to be extremely valuable in releasing emotional patterns that trouble us on any and/or all levels – physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual.

Through our olfactory system connected to the limbic region of our brain, essential oils touch our emotions in ways that cannot be reached by any other means.

“When the roots of our illnesses or conditions stem from buried emotions, essential oils can assist in releasing such blocks to our health and happiness…The peoples of the Bible seemed to understand this and diffused the fragrances of a variety of essential oils in their homes and synagogues and rubbed them on their bodies as well.”(3)

A state of cheerfulness is elevating to the immune system, helping to protect one from illness. Our emotional state IS a key element to our state of health and our bodies ability to remain free of dis-ease.

Dr. Stewart notes that “a positive mental attitude must be accompanied by right habits of healthful living…but a little oil of joy can go a long way in keeping us well.”(4)

“The Biblical writers may not have understood how aromas feed directly to the emotional brain, but they knew by experience, led by God, that certain perfumes, ointments, and incenses brought joy to their hearts, relieved their stresses, brought them peace and calmness, clarified their thinking, uplifted their spiritual awareness, and assisted them in their prayers, worship, and daily living.”(5)

Essential Oil Blends: DiGize™

DiGize Blend

DiGize™ is a potent blend of eight pure essential oils from Young Living, world leader in essential oils; Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus), Ginger (Zingiber official), Peppermint (Mentha piperita), Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma and J. scopulorum), Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), Anise (Pimpinella anisum), Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin), and Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus).

As you can imagine, with such an herbaceous blend of essential oils one will either love the scent or dislike it altogether. However you feel about it’s strong earthy aroma, DiGize™ is a wonderful blend to have on hand in your ‘natural medicine cabinet’, and you will appreciate the quick relief it brings from digestive complaints!

DiGize™ blend provides support for the digestive system, relieving digestive problems, including bloating, heartburn, gas, and indigestion. It is a blend to carry with you as you travel, as it soothes and calms an anxious tummy, nausea, helps relieve diarrhea or symptoms of food poisoning, fights parasites, and flu.

The essential oils in this blend are distilled from herbs known as “bitters”, which aid in increasing bile flow and digestive enzymes which help us to break down the food we eat.

The essential oils in DiGize™ fall into several categories of natural properties, including “anti-inflammatory”, “antispasmodic” (prevents or relieves cramps or spasms in the intestines), “anti-infectious”, “antiseptic”, and “anti-microbial”.

The blend should be diluted 20-80 in a carrier oil [1 part essential oil blend to 4 parts carrier oil] such as V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex, Sweet almond oil, or Coconut oil. It can be used as such, in a convenient sized glass bottle with a stainless steel roller ball top, for external application on stomach or intestinal area, and to the VitaFlex points on the feet and ankles for stomach and intestinal relief. Once applied to location, gently massage in the blend, and cover with clothing (e.g. a shirt and or socks), especially when applying on children.

Digize™ essential oil blend is wonderful to have on hand for tummy upsets and to was digestive complaints for the whole family. Some adults in need of quick relief will apply DiGize™ blend on their stomach as well as put a drop under their tongue.

For very young children, or the elderly, use only a drop of DiGize™ blend in 8 to 10 drops carrier oil applied on the bottoms of the feet and follow up by covering the feet with socks.
