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.

10 uses for Grounding™ essential oil

 Grounding™

topical aromatic

 

Grounding™ is a relaxing and balancing blend of essential oils that provides a stabilizing influence. Emotional chaos can lead to poor decisions. Grounding helps you cope with reality in a positive manner.

Grounding micro compliant

Removing an excess electrical charge from an object is called grounding.  Removing an excess emotional groundedcharge can also be a form of grounding.  Tree and root oils are wonderful to help you get reconnected.  If you picture the root system of a tree as an extension of your feet you’ll get a visual feel for what it means to be grounded as that root system anchors you to the earth.  Picture emotional energy/electricity coming from the earth up one leg and exiting out the other.  For me, being grounded does not mean “control”.  Instead, being grounded is letting things take it’s natural course.

Here are some situations where I find Grounding to be beneficial.  I put a drop or 2 in my hands, tent my hands over my nose and mouth and inhale.  Also, applying Grounding topically to heart or root chakra (base of tailbone) is helpful as well.

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. Mental clarity:  When there are so many thoughts in my head I have a hard time focusing.
    2. Calming:  Work, family, relationships can be the cause of distractions and leave you feeling unbalanced.  Diffuse grounding to get back in focus.
    3. Emotional Balance:  Ever feel torn and pulled in multiple directions at once?
    4. Personal loss:  Everyone handles personal loss a bit differently.  Grounding can help you find an outlet for that grief.
    5. In a rut:  When I feel like I’m in a rut and lack the motivation to move forward.
    6. Renew Focus:  When I forget what’s really important in life.
    7. Chaos:  When I feel control slipping.  Again, for me grounding isn’t giving me control but letting me see that my perceived control is an illusion.  Just like a mighty river, there are things I can’t control.
    8. Family obligations:  Family gatherings, dinners, in-laws can be sources of increased tension.
    9. The to-do list that won’t quit:  When I have so much on my plate that I feel that it will never get done.
    10. Impending big decisions:  When I feel frozen by indecision because I don’t know the “right” decision to make. Grounding helps me be at peace with the decision that I make.
Couldn’t we all use more Grounding in our lives??
