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!

Hope™ essential oil blend

Hope™ essential oil blend

topical aromatic

This has been an especially troubling time for me and for our country.  This is the month of the tragic and deadly Las Vegas shooting perpetrated by a man who seemingly had no motive (as of the time of this post).  There are wildfires out of control in California destroying wine country.  There is a humanity disaster in Puerto Rico as they try to recover from Hurricane Maria.  Texas and Florida are also still trying to recover from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  There has been a severe drought in the Dakotas and severe weather all throughout the Midwest.  All in all, 2017 is on track to becoming one of the more deadly (and expensive!) years on record.  It is easy to see how one could lose hope in the presence of all these disasters.

Instead of giving in to despair and losing hope for what is to come, I reached for my bottle of Hope and thought this was the perfect time to revisit this particular blend.

The blend of essential oils found in Hope brings an aroma that invites you to restore your faith by reconnecting with feelings of strength and stability.  The oils in Hope are:

  • Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet almond) oil,
  • Melissa officinalis† (Melissa) leaf oil
  • Juniperus osteosperma† (Juniper) oil
  • Commiphora myrrha† (Myrrh) oil
  • Picea mariana† (Black spruce) leaf oil

Whether you want to reconnect on a spiritual, emotional or mental level, Hope essential oil blend can help you get there.  This oil works especially well if you are going through stressful moments that may make looking forward difficult to envision.

Hope microcompliant

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.

  • Apply to wrists, neck or pulse points for a personalized fragrance
  • Diffuse when you feel “stuck” to help you envision a more positive future
  • Fretting does nothing but cause wrinkles!   Diffuse Hope and look forward to a better tomorrow.

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.
