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.
  3. Combine Blue Tansy with Cool Azul essential oil blend and apply it topically to fatigued muscles for a soothing massage after exercise.

  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.

Spearmint essential oil

Spearmint essential oil

(mentha spicata)

topical aromatic

Spearmint essential oil is used aromatically and topically while Spearmint Vitality is a dietary oil and therefore can be ingested.

Spearmint has less menthol and is milder than it’s Peppermint cousin and therefore is a great alternative for children, the elderly or those with sensitive skin.  It is characterized by a sweet, invigorating fragrance that is uplifting and calming.

Spearmint is most often found in gum and candies, but is also wonderful when diffused or used topically.  Some of the chemical constituents of Spearmint Essential Oil are Carvone and Limonene.  Google these constituents to learn of their great benefits!

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!
