10 uses for Abundance™ essential oil blend

Abundance™

topical aromatic

Abundance™ is created to enhance the frequency of the harmonic magnetic energy field that surrounds us. This higher frequency creates what is called “the law of attraction,” which refers to the things we attract to ourselves. Abundance opens us to a wealth of possibilities.

Abundance YL compliant

Abundance has a rich and spicy aroma.  They say when you use Abundance, good things happen.  I don’t believe that Abundance increases your luck, but rather opens you up to possibilities which therefore gives you that extra push to MAKE things happen.   Here’s a video of Gary Young talking about Abundance.  It’s a very poor quality video and I apologize for that but it IS interesting.

Use this oil whenever you seek abundance.  Abundance doesn’t just mean money – it can be love, success, happiness or health.

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. Resume:  Put a drop of Abundance on your resume before sending them to potential employers.
  2. Work:  Diffuse Abundance at work to increase business.
  3. Advancement: Use abundance as a perfume before your annual review with the boss to better your chances of negotiating a raise or more vacation time.
  4. Dating: Use on your wrists or over your heart when going on a date to attract abundance in love!
  5. Career change: diffuse when contemplating a career change to open yourself up to possibilities
  6. Meditation:  Abundance is a wonderful oil to use when meditating to open your mind and release your limitations.
  7. Pray: If you are religious and pray, diffusing this oil while praying opens yourself up the abundance of your God’s love.
  8. Sales: If you have a business or are an Independent Distributor for Young Living, diffuse or wear Abundance when doing a class to increase sales!
  9. Wallet: A drop on the wallet to attract money!  Hey – you’ve done crazier things to make a buck…
  10. Business Cards: place a drop of Abundance on your business cards and open the minds of your potential customers to do business with you!

brain power compliant micro

Brain Power™ gives your brain a boost with essential oils that are high in sesquiterpenes. Use it to clarify thought and develop greater focus.

“these essential oils all contain sesquiterpenes. Sesquiterpenes are C15 carbon chains that do not contain oxygen molecules, but mysteriously pull oxygen in. So wherever sesquiterpenes are found, oxygen will always come and attach to it.

When we have an oxygen deficiency in the brain, we will have problems in dealing with day-to-day stresses, making correct decisions and feeling self-motivated. In studies that were conducted at Berlin and Vienna universities, it was de

termined that breathing sesquiterpene oils increases blood brain oxygen.” ~Gary Young Blog Post

  2. Motivation/goal setting:  Whether it be work, home, or play, setting goals motivates us to succeed.  Use Brain Power to give clarity to what you want your future to hold.

  4. Concentration:  You or your child easily distracted by the world around you?  use Brain Power to help focus your attention and keep your brain from wandering.

Gifts of the Magi using essential oils

With my newfound love of essential oils, I decided to get creative this year.  That’s usually a bad idea, since I’m not the creative type.  So I have to resort to stealing/modifying someone else’s idea.   And this is what I found at http://www.theidearoom.net

gifts of christmas infographic

If you’d like to start with some basics, first read my post about Bath Salts using your premium starter kit.

gift of christmas pics

Supplies:

Airtight glass containers:  I got mine at Hobby Lobby.  My containers are small because I was making 10 of these for my family members.  But Hobby Lobby, or any crafting store, should have a wide variety of jars.

Gift Boxes:  These i picked up at Michael’s and are the perfect size for these little jars

“Hay”: brown crinkle paper, again at Michael’s, acted as my poor man’s hay.  Plus, since I was shipping these boxes, the paper worked well as padding.

Chocolate Gold coins: Available most everywhere candy is sold this time of year.

Twine: I used twine to tie the labels onto the packages.  To make the labels, I used picmonkey.com which is a free and easy infographic making program.

Myrrh Bath Salts

What you’ll need

Salt:  For these bath salts I used a 3 different types of salt.  Epsom salt for therapeutic benefit, Kosher salt for texture and then Himalayan Salt for just a pop of color.  But any combination of salts will work for this recipe

Olive Oil: Just a hint of Extra Virgin Olive oil or any other carrier oil will help keep this mix from drying out.

Myrrh essential oil:  Young Living carries a wide variety of oils.  Buy your Myrrh essential oil HERE.

Lavender essential oil (optional):  Myrrh, by itself, isn’t very fragrant.  I did not add anything to my mix because I wanted to stay true to the religious significance of the oils and the gift, but adding a few drops of lavender will enhance the aroma of this bath salt recipe.  I decided instead to just include a sample packet of lavender with instructions to add it for a more fragrant experience.

Myrrh bath salts

  • 1/2 cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1/4 cup of Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup of Kosher salt
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 8-10 drops of Myrrh essential oil
  • 5 drops of lavender (optional)

Mix salts and oil together.  Add essential oils of choice and blend.  Keep in an airtight container.  Use 1/2 cup of salts for an average sized bathtub.

Frankincense Sugar Scrub:

What you’ll need:

Raw Sugar: Raw sugar is a minimally processed version of cane sugar.  The larger crystals make it desirable for a sugar scrub

White Sugar: The smaller granules of white sugar make a nice contrast against the larger crystals of the raw sugar

Olive Oil: Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or any other carrier oil) helps to keep this recipe from drying out.  Also, using a sugar scrub with olive oil leaves your  skin feeling silky smooth! The recipe calls for 1/8 of a cup of oil but I found that to be a bit much for my liking – feel free to add more.

Frankincense essential oil: Young Living carries a wide variety of essential oils.  Buy your Frankincense essential oil HERE

frankincense sugar scrub

  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (or other carrier oil)
  • 8-10 drops of Frankincense essential oil
  • 5 drops orange essential oil (optional)

Mix all ingredients and seal in an air tight container.  Use as needed to exfoliate and soften skin.

Add the Myrrh Bath Salts, Frankincense Sugar Scrub and gold coin to a box and you’ve got yourself a wonderfully smelling and symbolic gift that embraces the spirituality of Christmas!

BATH SALTS using essential oils

BATH SALTS

What kind of salt do I use?

Sea Salt, Epsom salt, Dead Sea Salt, Kosher salt or a combination of salts. Salts can come in several grain sizes and combining them can make a visually appealing mix. Keep in mind larger salts take longer to dissolve and can be painful on sensitive tushies.

What else can I add?

Some people use 1/4 cup baking soda per 1 cup salt to add a bit of fizz to their bath.  Others add carrier oils such as Jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil for added moisturization.  To be super fancy you can add small bits of dried herbs or flowers for accents (lavender, rose petals, rosemary). Also, these salts make great gifts and adding 1-2 drops of food or soap coloring adds a wonderfully flair!  Note: Be VERY careful about adding coloring to your bath salts as using too much food coloring may stain the skin or your tub.  Find soap colorants on amazon HERE

How many drops of essential oil do I add?

Again, this is mostly personal taste. 5-10 drops of essential oil per cup of salt is a good place to start.   Use approximately 1/2 cup of salt per bath.

How do I mix them?

Add your salts into a stainless steel bowl and add your coloring, baking soda, oil or flower bits first.  Mix well.  Then add your essential oils.  Let oils dry for a couple hours before putting in an air tight glass jar.

How do I  use them?

Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bath salt mix in a regular sized tub.  Pour salt in a warm bath and wait for the salt to dissolve.  Did you know you can also use bath salts in the shower?  Just grab a handful and add a little bit of shower gel and gently massage on your skin to exfoliate dead skin cells.

Ready to get started? 

relaxing bath salts

In addition to using single oils by themselves, here are a few other ideas below:

Try these other combinations once you expand your collection:

Relax: Melaleuca (Tea Tree) and Lavender

Bad Day Buster: Eucalyptus and Citrus Fresh

Confidence: Citrus Fresh and Idaho Blue Spruce

Uplifting: Bergamot and Pine

Happy Happy Joy Joy: Frankincense and Geranium

Romance: Ylang Ylang and Jasmine

Energizer: Eucalyptus, wintergreen
