Nutmeg Essential oil

Nutmeg essential oil

(Myristica fragrans)

topical aromatic

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

Nutmeg oil has a warm and inviting fragrance and blends especially well with orange, clary sage, eucaluptus and ginger.  Nutmeg comes from an evergreen tree that’s indigenous to Indonesia. The oil is obtained by steam-distilling the dried kernels of the ripe seeds of the nutmeg.

Who says fall scents have to be reserved for Autumn.  These blends smell great ALL year round!

Fall Diffuser Blends

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. Keep winter boots smelling fresh all season long by spritzing them with water infused with a drop each of Nutmeg and Peppermint.
  2. Diffuse Nutmeg by itself or with Orange essential oil to invite a sense of peace and togetherness in your home.

Young Living Plant based shampoo and conditioner

We love our essential oils not only for the benefits they provide, but because they come from the earth.  They are natural, organic and free from potentially harmful toxic chemicals.  Young Living has given us not only essential oils, but personal care products that help us live that toxic and chemical-free life.  They produce soap, deodorant, oral care products and so much more, including…..shampoo and conditioner!

Using a natural shampoo doesn’t mean it doesn’t have chemicals.  It means that it is free from potentially TOXIC chemicals.  Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a common chemical in shampoo that gives it lots of lather, but doesn’t really contribute to cleaning your hair.  Do you shampoo your hair to get it clean? or to see it lather.. Other chemicals I like to avoid are Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Mureth Sulfate, Siloxanes, Propylene Glycol, Olefin Sulfonate, and parabens.

  • Infuses essential oils into your scalp and hair follicles
  • Contains Glycerin which is a fatty liquid that helps to moisturize your hair
  • Contains all natural base formulations which are more suitable for most skin types (those with very sensitive skin should always test out products on small area first, even if it’s organic)
  • Enjoy a  wonderfully natural aroma as you wash your hair – no artificial fragrance
  • Environmentally friendly
  • No Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates or Toxins

Young Living shampoos and conditioners are not only natural and effective, but are also 100-percent biodegradable. These products are great to take with you to the beach, to the campsite, or anywhere your travels take you. You can keep your hair healthy and treat the environment well, too!

Lavender Mint Daily Shampoo and Conditioner

JuvaPower® Supplement

JuvaPower® supplement

JuvaPower® is a high antioxidant vegetable powder complex and is one of the richest sources of acid-binding foods. JuvaPower is rich in liver-supporting nutrients and has intestinal cleansing benefits.*

The liver is an organ that often takes the brunt of a busy lifestyle. It is one of the most important organs in the body, as its main job is to filter and purify the blood coming from the digestive tract before circulating it to the rest of the body. It also detoxifies chemicals and converts carbohydrates to energy, storing that energy in the form of glycogen and fats. As it does, the liver secretes bile that ends up in the intestines.

JuvaPower helps combat the negative effects of a modern lifestyle by providing many of the world’s best liver-supporting, nutrient-rich foods: rice seed bran, spinach leaf, tomato fruit, beet root, flax seed bran, oat seed bran, broccoli floret/stalk, cucumber fruit, dill seed, barley sprouted seed, and many other natural ingredients, as well as Young Living’s essential oils anise (Pimpinella anisum) seed and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) seed.

When these whole-food fibers are consumed, the body generates this food power to optimize normal liver function and to promote healthy intestinal cleansing. Essentially, your body not only gently cleanses, it also replenishes and fortifies with these amazing nutrients.

The most prevalent ingredients in JuvaPower, rice seed bran and spinach powder, offer great benefits in and of themselves. Rice seed bran has been known to have tocotrienol rich fraction (TRF) that can boost the activity of liver enzymes that clear toxic substance from the liver. In addition, spinach is one of the highest known antioxidant foods. In each serving, you receive a hearty 2.7 grams of rice seed bran and 0.81 mg of spinach powder.

juvapower

How to use: Sprinkle 7.5 grams (1 tablespoon) on food (i.e., baked potato, salad, rice, eggs, etc.) or add to 4-8 oz. purified water or rice/almond milk and drink. Use JuvaPower three times daily for maximum benefits.

Try this tip: Take the majority of your JuvaPower dosage in the evening and let these nutrients go to work for you overnight. You’ll discover just how beneficial a happy, healthy liver can be in your life.

Also try JuvaSpice®: With the addition of Real Salt, Potassium Choloride, and Cayenjuvaspice_usa_pngne Pepper, JuvaSpice gives your food a bit more personality while providing the same nutrient rich, liver supporting ingredients as JuvaPower!  Just sprinkle 1 gram (approximately 1/3-1/2 teaspoon) on food (i.e., baked potato, salad, rice, eggs, etc.) or add to 4-8 oz. purified water or rice/almond milk and drink.

Forgiveness™ essential oil blend

Forgiveness™ essential oil blend

topical aromatic

Forgiveness™ contains an aroma that supports the ability to forgive yourself and others while letting go of negative emotions, an important part of personal growth.  Forgiveness is a blend of:

  • Sesame (Sesamum indicum) seed oil
  • Melissa (Melissa officinalis) leaf oil
  • Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) flower oil
  • Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) resin oil
  • Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood oil (Santalum paniculatum)
  • Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) seed oil
  • Angelica (Angelica archangelica) root oil
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) oil
  • Furanocoumarin-free Bergamot (Citrus aurantium bergamia)
  • Lemon (Citrus limon) peel oil
  • Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) flower oil
  • Jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum) flower extract
  • Helichrysum italicum oil
  • Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) flower oil
  • Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martini) oil
  • Rose (Rosa damascena) flower oil

When we have been wronged we have 2 choices:  We can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge, or we can forgive and move forward.  By embracing forgiveness, we can also experience peace, happiness, gratitude and joy.

forgiveness

Forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting or excuse the act that hurt you, but it does lessen the grip it has on you allowing you to focus on the more positive aspects of life.  Forgiveness can also foster feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion.  According to Mayo Clinic, here are some of the many benefit of practicing forgiveness.

  • Healthier relationships
  • Less anxiety and stress
  • Healthier blood pressure
  • Higher self esteem
  • Stronger immune system
  • Greater spiritual and psychological well being

Or maybe it’s yourself you need to forgive.  When we unintentionally do something to hurt the ones we love we can experience intense guilt and regret which can lead to negative self talk.   Negative self talk are things like “I’m always saying the wrong thing” or “why do I always screw things up”.  These types of defeating thoughts perpetuate a negative downward spiral that is very difficult to break out of.

In order to forgive ourselves we have to give ourselves permission to make a mistake.  We are not perfect and mistakes are inevitable.  Learn from your behavior, admit the mistake and start the road to forgiveness. We are so much harder than ourselves than we are with the ones we love.  We give others the benefit of the doubt but don’t give ourselves any slack at all.  Forgiving yourself is about self acceptance and self love. Use Forgiveness essential oil to help you get there.

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 to help release feelings of anger or guilt
  2. Apply to pulse points to help feel grounded and content throughout the day
  3. Combine with Epsom salts and add to a bath after a long day to promote feelings of contentment.
  4. Due to it’s calming scent, this is a great oil to diffuse in the evening to promote a healthy night’s sleep.
