Carrot Seed Essential oil

Carrot Seed Essential oil

(Daucus carota sativa)

topical aromatic

Carrot Seed essential oil is for use aromatically and topically while Carrot Seed Vitality essential oil is dietary and therefore can be ingested.  Both bottles contain the same essential oil and differ only in the way they are labeled.  The designation of the two products allows you to share all the ways to use essential oils in the correct and FDA approved way.

Produced from distillation of the seeds of the wild carrot plant, Carrot Seed has a mildly sweet aroma with earthy, herbaceous notes.  This white, flowering plant is also known by the names Wild Carrot and Queen Anne’s Lace. This oil also has a musky scent that is not very pleasant to some.  I don’t hate the aroma, but I don’t love it either.  That being said, carrot seed oil is rejuvenating to the skin and can be found in many skin care products.

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. Create a salt scrub by mixing 1 cup Himalayan Salt, 1/2 cup fractionated coconut oil, and 5-7 drops Carrot Seed oil.  (Hint, use whatever combination of oils you have on hand!  See below for a list of some of the common carrier oils and their properties).  If you have sensitive skin you may want to swap the salt for sugar which may be gentler on your skin.
  2. Add to your favorite nightly face cream to nourish, rejuvenate and support the appearance of healthy looking and smooth skin.
  3. After spending too much time in the sun add Carrot Seed oil to your aloe vera gel for an extra soothing effect.

Kunzea essential oil from Young Living

Kunzea essential oil

(Kunzea ambigua)

topical aromatic

New for 2018!!!  Young Living’s newest oil is Kunzea essential oil and was released at the 2018 convention.  Native to the southern coast of Australia and Tansmania, the kunzea plant is often called the  “white cloud” because of the fluffy, airy white and pink flowers that top it.  Native cultures have used the many benefits of the kunzea plant for centuries. Animals will sleep under the plant when they want a more peaceful outdoor experience.

Kunzea essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and green branches of the plant, and it has a scent that is refreshing, spicy, and woodsy.

Kunzea is often compared to Tea Tree essential oil because of the similar uses and properties; however, it has a much more pleasant aroma when applied topically or diffused.   Some love the smell of Tea Tree, but to me Tea Tree oil smells like motor oil so this is a MUCH preferred scent.  Also, it’s great to use alongside Purification® to help purify the air.

Kunzea contains high levels of alpha-pinene and eucalyptol that help to soothe muscles and reduce the appearance of blemishes. It also has overlapping chemical constituents with oregano, tea tree, frankincense, hyssop, and lilac.

  • Offers a clean, spicy, and woodsy aroma
  • Has comparable properties to Tea Tree oil
  • Contains high levels of alpha-pinene and eucalyptol—helps to soothe fatigued muscles and reduce the appearance of blemishes

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 Kunzea helps create a relaxing atmosphere and a refreshing respiratory experience with it’s woodsy aroma.
  2. You can also diffuse Kunzea to purify the air from unwanted odors with it’s clean, crisp smell.  Try adding to a cotton ball and placing in your stinky shoes overnight!
  3. Apply to fatigued muscles. Kunzea is high in the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene and eucalyptol, which makes it great for a soothing massage.  Add to V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex to use as a massage or after workout to help soothe
    fatigued muscles

Fennel essential oil

Fennel essential oil

(Foeniculum vulgare)

topical aromatic

Fennel essential oil is for use aromatically and topically while Fennel Vitality essential oil is dietary and therefore can be ingested.  Both bottles contain the same essential oil and differ only in the way they are labeled.  The designation of the two products allows you to share all the ways to use essential oils in the correct and FDA approved way.

Fennel essential oil is steam distilled from the crushed seeds of the fennel plant. The leafy herb is native to regions of southern Europe and Asia Minor, but it has since naturalized in locations around the world. Fennel has a rich aroma reminiscent of anise, which gives Fennel oil its licorice-like scent. Although the seeds and oil are used in flavoring, fennel’s complex aroma has also made it popular in soaps, candles, and perfumes.

Fennel is a tall, beautiful perennial herb with feather-like leaves that look a lot like dill. Dig below the stalk and you’ll find a large white bulb at the root. Although it looks like garlic or something from the onion tribe, fennel is actually related more closely to carrots. You can see the family resemblance in their crispy texture and sweetness. The bulb, stalk, and leaves are all edible, but the most potent flavor comes from the seeds.

Young Living grinds the seeds into a powder and steam distills that powder.

Fennel

There are many Fennel essential oil uses, but the oil is popularly used for aromatic applications. Its sweet, spicy aroma has a long history of encouraging grounding feelings, making it an important part of Young Living’s Dragon Time™ Massage Oil and Prenolone® Plus Body Cream.

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 at work or while studying to create a grounded environment.
  2. Reduce the appearance of pores by applying a neutral facial toner and 1–2 drops Fennel on freshly washed skin.
  3. Use Fennel’s cleansing benefits by adding a few drops to a gentle facial cleanser.
  4. Put a few drops in your palm and inhale directly to promote feelings of balance, calm, and grounding.
  5. In ancient Rome, warriors were said to consume fennel prepare them for battle and make them strong.  To give you courage and confidence of a Roman soldier, put a few drops in your palm, cup your hands to your nose, and inhale!

Blue Tansy Essential Oil

Blue Tansy essential oil

(Tanacetum annuum)

topical aromatic

Valor and Peace & Calming are 2 of Young Living’s more popular blends but they are also blends that had frequently gone out of stock.  This is because there has been a worldwide shortage of Blue Tansy due to over harvesting.  After many years, Young Living has found a way to harvest this highly sought after plant without harming the environment or depleting natural resources.   It is Young Living’s dedication to sustainable, responsible farming that allows them to source rare plants like this and provide members access to this exclusive oil.

Bottom line, if you love Valor and Peace & Calming,  you are going to LOVE Blue Tansy!

Blue Tansy

Native to Morocco, Blue Tansy is a rare botanical in the chamomile family, and it has become celebrated for its use in high-end, luxury beauty products.   Blue Tansy’s sweet, floral fragrance creates a welcoming, pleasant environment when diffused.  The naturally occurring constituent chamazulene turns the powerfully pure essential oil a beautifully rich blue color during the steam distillation process.

Features and Benefits:

  • Possesses skin-cleansing properties
  • Helps reduce the appearance of blemishes*
  • Creates an uplifting environment when diffused
  • Can moisturize and help beautify the skin when added to a moisturizer
  • Has skin-soothing properties
  • Soothes fatigued muscles when combined with Cool AzulTM essential oil blend

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 Blue Tansy’s sweet, floral fragrance throughout your home to create an inviting, uplifting environment.*
  2. Enhance your favorite moisturizer by adding Blue Tansy and applying it topically to help soothe and moisturize the skin.

  5. Enjoy Blue Tansy’s skin-cleansing benefits by adding it to Epsom salt and V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex for a relaxing bath.
*The deep sapphire shade that makes Blue Tansy so unique also may stain some surfaces, skin, and clothing.  It may also stain diffusers.  Areas on your body with dry skin tend to stay blue longer than moisturized areas of the body. Diluting the oil will significantly help the color evenly disperse. When applying to your face, I recommend mixing only ONE drop of oil with your favorite moisturizer or diluting.
