Blue Tansy Essential Oil

Blue Tansy essential oil

(Tanacetum annuum)

topical aromatic

Valor and Peace & Calming are 2 of Young Living’s more popular blends but they are also blends that had frequently gone out of stock.  This is because there has been a worldwide shortage of Blue Tansy due to over harvesting.  After many years, Young Living has found a way to harvest this highly sought after plant without harming the environment or depleting natural resources.   It is Young Living’s dedication to sustainable, responsible farming that allows them to source rare plants like this and provide members access to this exclusive oil.

Bottom line, if you love Valor and Peace & Calming,  you are going to LOVE Blue Tansy!

Blue Tansy

Native to Morocco, Blue Tansy is a rare botanical in the chamomile family, and it has become celebrated for its use in high-end, luxury beauty products.   Blue Tansy’s sweet, floral fragrance creates a welcoming, pleasant environment when diffused.  The naturally occurring constituent chamazulene turns the powerfully pure essential oil a beautifully rich blue color during the steam distillation process.

Features and Benefits:

  • Possesses skin-cleansing properties
  • Helps reduce the appearance of blemishes*
  • Creates an uplifting environment when diffused
  • Can moisturize and help beautify the skin when added to a moisturizer
  • Has skin-soothing properties
  • Soothes fatigued muscles when combined with Cool AzulTM essential oil blend

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 Blue Tansy’s sweet, floral fragrance throughout your home to create an inviting, uplifting environment.*
  2. Enhance your favorite moisturizer by adding Blue Tansy and applying it topically to help soothe and moisturize the skin.
  3. Combine Blue Tansy with Cool Azul essential oil blend and apply it topically to fatigued muscles for a soothing massage after exercise.
  4. Add Blue Tansy to your Gentle Mist Personal Diffuser and diffuse it around your face to help hydrate and beautify your skin.
  5. Enjoy Blue Tansy’s skin-cleansing benefits by adding it to Epsom salt and V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex for a relaxing bath.
*The deep sapphire shade that makes Blue Tansy so unique also may stain some surfaces, skin, and clothing.  It may also stain diffusers.  Areas on your body with dry skin tend to stay blue longer than moisturized areas of the body. Diluting the oil will significantly help the color evenly disperse. When applying to your face, I recommend mixing only ONE drop of oil with your favorite moisturizer or diluting.

Peace & Calming II™ from Young Living

Peace & Calming II™

topical aromatic

Although not designed as a replacement for Peace & Calming® essential oil blend, this new formulation will have increased availability.   Peace & Calming contains an oil, Blue Tansy, that has always been difficult to source.  Young Living has grown so much that demand for Peace & Calming surpassed the Blue Tansy supply.

Given Young Living’s commitment to purity,  and that the oils are subject to the cycles of nature, Peace & Calming II was formulated to give us another option.

D. Gary Young specially formulated Peace & Calming II™ essential oil blend as his recommended option and alternate to Peace & Calming. Gary handpicked this new formulation to stay true to the original constituent character of its predecessor and offer the same great experience. The gentle aroma of Peace & Calming II includes:

  • Tangerine
  • Orange
  • Ylang Ylang
  • Patchouli
  • German Chamomile
  • Vetiver
  • Cistus
  • Bergamot
  • Cassia
  • Davana, and Young Living’s exclusive
  • Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oils.

This proprietary blend creates a relaxing and pleasant aroma when inhaled or diffused. Dilute and apply topically to moisturize and beautify the appearance of skin. Peace & Calming II includes the naturally occurring constituents germacrene D, linalol, alpha-pinene, and bisabolol. Along with Peace & Calming, you’ll now have two unique and powerful options that can be used individually or together for a complementary experience!

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.

How cool is this.  Mayim Bialik is a wonderful role model for all women –  not just Jewish women, or women in science, or women who try to live a natural life, or all of those who also happen to be mothers.   Here’s a excerpt from her biography posted on MayimBialik.net

Bialik earned a BS from UCLA in 2000 in Neuroscience and Hebrew & Jewish Studies, and went on to the Ph.D. program in Neuroscience, also at UCLA. She completed her doctorate in the Fall of 2007, which examined the role of oxytocin and vasopressin in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in adolescents with Prader-Willi syndrome. Bialik was a dedicated student leader at UCLA Hillel, leading and starting a Women’s Rosh Chodesh group, chanting and blowing shofar for High Holiday services, and conducting and writing music for UCLA’s Jewish a cappella group……Bialik proudly breastfed her sons for a combined 6 1/2 years and is a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor, offering free counseling and lactation support to any woman who is referred to her. Her book about Attachment Parenting, Beyond the Sling, was published in March 2012 (Simon and Schuster). Her second book of vegan family-friendly recipes, Mayim’s Vegan Table, was published by Da Capo Press in February 2014.

So when I came across this photo of What’s in Mayim Bialik’s purse posted on US Weekly I was so happy to see that out spilled 2 oils from Young Living.  When you are Mayim Bialik you need a little bit of Peace and Calming and Lavender.

I admire her so much that whatever reservations I had about aligning myself with Young Living have disappeared.  And I know that If I ever get to meet Mayim that we’d be best buds, but until then, we’ll have to share our love for Young Living essential oils from afar 😀

Young Living Combinations to Diffuse

Just received your Premium Starter Kit and aren’t sure what to do with all those great smelling oils?

On the fence about purchasing the kit because you just aren’t sure you’d use them?

Love your candles but worried about the safety of leaving them unattended?

…or worse, discharging potential dangerous chemicals as they burn?

Either way DIFFUSING oils is an easy and aromatic way to introduce yourself to essential oils.  You can diffuse single oils, blends, or make your own combo to suit your mood and your preferences.   It’s really that easy!

Diffusing essential oils is more than just making the room smell nice, however.  When  you diffuse therapeutic grade essential oils, such as Young Living Essential Oils, molecules are broken up into micro-fine mist particles. These mist particles stay suspended in the air for long periods of time. Not only does this help reduce odors in the air, but these micro-mist particles promote a healthy, natural, and pure living environment.

Candles can’t do that!

Diffusing essential oils without heat can also help:

  • Reduce unpleasant odors.
  • Relax the mind and body.
  • May enhance mood and uplift spirits.
  • Promote concentration, alertness, and mental clarity.
  • Promotes general sense of well-being.

Lots of good reasons to start diffusing.  How many drops you use is largely a matter of preference.  Essential Oils are incredibly potent and therefore I would recommend you start small as you can always add more if you feel you need to.  I like to start with 6 drops total and will increase that to no more than 9 if I really feel like I need more of a boost.

Here are a few combinations using the aromatic oils in your Premium Starter Kit!

diffuser blends

Once you start your journey you’ll be acquiring all sorts of new oils along the way.  Here are some more wonderful blends to enjoy with Young Livings aromatic oils:

10 uses for Peace and Calming® Essential Oil Blend

PEACE & CALMING®

topical aromatic

Peace & Calming® is a pretty transparent oil.  Transparent in that it means what it says and says what it does.

Peace and Calming® is a gentle, fragrant blend of Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Tangerine and Blue Tansy essential oils with an aroma that’s comforting and freshens the air. Diffuse to create a calming and peaceful atmosphere throughout the home. Peace & Calming is a must have for every household, especially those with young children.

peace and calming YL micro

I find that it smells mostly of Patchouli and  is a deeply relaxing and serene oil to diffuse.  Have you ever been to a hypnotist show? Or done one of those relaxation/mediation exercises? In both of these situations you mentally imagine each part of your body, relaxing first your head, then your neck, then your shoulders etc, each body part getting heavier and heavier,  you melt into the bed and couldn’t move if you wanted to.  This the reaction I get from Peace & Calming® but with much less effort.

Here are some other uses for  Peace & Calming® essential oil blend.

  1. Calm: Helps create a calming and relaxing environment when diffused or used topically
  2. Children: Diffuse to promote a calming environment for children or in my case, grumpy husbands.
  3. Bath: Add a few drops to Epsom salt before adding to a bath for a relaxing soak. Have someone come check on you after a while – you don’t want to turn into a prune!
  4. Meditation: Offers a peaceful aroma for yoga and meditation when diffused.PC
  5. Massage: Massage Peace & Calming essential oil blend on the reflex points of the feet and back of the neck for a soothing and relaxing effect.
  6. Holidays: Visiting in-laws?  Peace and calming will be your best friend 🙂
  7. Mind: Calm an overactive mind with 2-3 drops rubbed onto legs or arms. Pair with lavender for a great smelling and effective nighttime routine
  8. Perfume: Use as perfume behind ears and on wrists. Alternately, add to a diffuser necklace or a silk scarf to have the scent with you all day long!
  9. Pets: Rub Peace & Calming essential oil blend behind overactive pets’ ears after an afternoon of playing with the kids.
  10. Relaxation and rest: Rub Peace & Calming essential oil blend on feet to release tension and promote a good night’s rest.
  11. Diffuse: Diffuse Peace & Calming to freshen the air.

Cruising the web I found my favorite testimonial EVER at Essential Wellness

Mary E. Hoose submitted the following tip:
“I have a work associate who was getting married and was very nervous. I gave her a bottle of Peace and Calming® and she used it for about three months …. The big day arrived and she even put Peace and Calming® on a cotton ball and placed it in the center of her bouquet. Every time she [wanted a peaceful and relaxing environment] she would smell her bouquet. Thanks to Peace and Calming® the day went very smoothly.”

How great is that?
