Insect Repellent by Young Living

Insect Repellent

Young Living’s Insect Repellent is tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.

Here in Florida we joke that the state bird is the mosquito.  As you can imagine, insect repellent is a MUST and is used liberally during all of our summer activities.  Sporting events, outdoor concerts, BBQs, picnics, hiking, camping, kayaking…if it takes place outdoors, you’ll want insect repellent.  Since I need to use it so often, I was really looking for a more natural, toxin free solution without DEET or synthetic chemicals.  As always, I first look to Young Living and as usual, they have the perfect solution.

Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-greasy, non-sticky application.

So whether you’re spending time in the backyard or the backwoods, you can feel great knowing you have a pure, plant-based way to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Due to state regulations, this product is not available for purchase in every state.

Key Ingredients:

  • Citronella essential oil

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!

ComforTone® Capsules

ComforTone® (capsules)

Essential Oil supplement

 

These capsules use both essential oils and natural herbs to eliminate residue in the colon and optimize its proper activity.* Since ComforTone® supports normal wave-like contractions that move food through the intestines (Peristalsis), it can help keep your colon in tip-top shape by maintaining your entire intestinal system.

ComforTone is ideal for strengthening the system that delivers nutrients to the rest of the body.* It also contains ingredients that are beneficial to liver, gall bladder, and stomach health.*

Real talk: ComforTone helps you poop.  It’s not a pretty subject but we all have that feeling from time to time.  This is especially true when you travel and eat foods that you wouldn’t normally eat.  It’s important that you do not use ComforTone ALL the time and I personally limit use to 2 weeks at a time.  Only use it when you need it and start slow.  So, instead of starting with 1 capsule 3x a day I would start with just one capsule before bedtime and see how your body reacts.

Also noteworthy is that this supplement contains Cascara Sagrada bark, a dark extract.  Because of this, there is a good chance your stool will be black or at least very dark.  But that’s OK – what happens in the bathroom STAYS in the bathroom.  Honestly, it’s better that way.
