Pine essential Oil

Pine Essential Oil

(Pinus sylvestris)

topical aromatic

Pine essential oil is steam distilled from the needles of the Pinus sylvestris tree, which originates in Austria, the United States, and Canada.

For those that celebrate Christmas, there is nothing quite like the sounds, the visions and the SMELLS of the holiday season.  Fresh wassail simmering on the stove, Peppermint treats tempting your sweet tooth, and of course the wonderfully festive scent of the Christmas Tree.

I don’t know about you, but the scent of pine is like a time machine for me. It puts me right back into my living room, sitting around a live tree with twinkling lights and more wrapped presents than any child should ever have a right to.   Of course now we are older and some may still get a live tree with others have opted for the convenience of an artificial tree.  But instead of those harsh, chemical laden “pine scent in a bottle” sprays, why not get the next best thing to a real tree – OIL from a REAL TREE!!

But be careful…according to wikipedia, synthetic pine oils accounted for 90% of sales as of 2000.  Young Living oils are 100% pure, authentic oils that you and your family can use with full peace of mind.

christmas forest blend

Not only does this oil remind me of the holidays, Pine essential oil has a refreshing and empowering aroma. When diffused, this oil has a calming scent.

It is also an important ingredient in Young Living’s RC blend which I love to use in the shower.   When the steam interacts with RC (or Pine) is it invigorating and energetic.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Diffuse alone or with Idaho Balsam Fir and Cedarwood to transform your home into a virtual forest!
  2. Collect pine cones, clean and bake for 30 minutes at 200°.  Generously add pine essential oil to pine cones.  Seal in a ziploc bag for 2-3 weeks.  Remove from bag and place in tree to infuse your living area with the power of pine.
  3. No pine cones?  Use rattan sticks!  Add pine essential oil and place strategically throughout the tree.
  4. There is a reason why Pine-Sol has been a traditional popular cleaner – the scent of pine is crisp and clean.  Add to your favorite cleaner to enjoy the scent all year round.
  5. Diffuse in the car while driving around looking at holiday lights.
  6. Add to your shower or bath and inhale deeply for a rewarding experience.
  7. Make Terra Cotta ornaments with the kids and infuse them with the power of pine!

Rose essential oil

topical aromatic

Rose essential oil is a precious oil that is one of the most recognizable scents in the world.  Rose oil is distilled to gently release the delicate flower’s oil through steam. Because each 5-ml bottle requires 22 pounds of rose petals, Rose oil is one of the most valuable (and expensive) essential oils you can acquire.  22 pounds of rose petals? Seriously??

Jade Lemon Essential Oil

Jade Lemon

(Citrus limon eureka var. formosensis)

topical aromatic

Jade Lemon essential oil is distilled from fruit grown in the warm, humid climate of southeast China and is cold pressed from the rind.  These fruits are bright green in color, contrary to the lemon we are all accustomed to, which is yellow.  Jade Lemon has high levels of D Limonene and Carvone. Both of these constituents have been heavily studied for their many benefits – google them to find out more!

While other lemons begin to release some of their oils aromatically as they turn yellow, the jade lemon fruit remains green even in maturity, allowing the concentration of oil to continue within the fruit. The oil is released only after the fruit is picked, giving it a richer and more fragrant aroma.

Jasmine Essential Oil

Jasmine Essential Oil

(Jasminum officinale*)

**Jasmine is an absolute or essence, rather than an essential oil.

topical aromatic

Considered to be exotic and romantic, Jasmine supports the skin’s appearance and is used in several Young Living personal care products. The sweet, floral aroma of Jasmine relaxes the mind and boosts self-confidence.

Jasmine absolute is known as the ‘King of Oils’, and its heavy, sweet scent is loved by most people. The flowers release their perfume at dusk, so flowers are picked at night before sunrise.  It takes over 10 lbs of Jasmine flowers to make one 5 ml bottle of oil!  That makes Jasmine an expensive oil, but it doesn’t take much to enjoy this lovely scent and I think you’ll find it’s well worth the extra expense.

jasmine

Jasmine has been used throughout history for attraction and balancing the feminine energy of the body. It is a middle note in perfumery, and is a perfect addition to your feminine arsenal.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Make your own perfume and create a signature scent!
  2. Apply to cotton balls and place in air vents in  your home or car.
