Frankincense


A VERY valuable and sought after oil. Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. It is mentioned in one of the oldest known medical records called the Ebers Papyrus (dating from sixteenth century B.C.) with an ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes. The distillation process takes 2 weeks and a frankincense tree cannot be tapped into unless it is at least 40 years old. Young Living has a frankincense and myrrh tree farm in Oman.

Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research.

• Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks.

• Why is Frankincense so helpful for emotions? Frankincense is high in sesquiterpenes. They act on the pineal gland, which is the gland considered the seat of emotions. Remember, research shows that when inhaling the pure constituents in these oils, can stimulate the olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind.

• Frankincense has a visual tightening effect on the skin and may benefit older, more mature skin.

• Slows signs of aging on the skin, such as liver spots

• When used on a regular basis topically and internally, can aid in maintaining normal cellular regeneration.

• Frankincense trees grow out of polished marble rocks, without soil.

• Frankincense is as versatile as Lavender

Copaiba


This powerful essential oil with the funny name (pronounced “Ko-pah-ee-bah”) from South America has traditionally been used to support the body’s natural response to injury or irritation.

Copaiba contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene of any known essential oil. Why is that a big deal? Beta-caryophyllene has been extensively studied for its ability to modulate the the body’s response to irritation. It is an amazing natural substance.

Copaiba is known as a magnifier (driver). Any time you use Copaiba with another essential oil, it will have the effect of magnifying the properties of that oil. Isn’t that incredible? This can enable you to use less of another more expensive oil or get larger benefits from a different oil that you are using.  Diffuse for a sense of grounding and security.

Lemon


Young Living’s Lemon oil is cold pressed from the rind of the lemon, not from the pulpy acidic juice. As you know, the vitamins and nutrients are in the rind itself. It is full of antioxidants that has been linked to healthy immune system function. Remember, antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals that our bodies are in contact with daily.

• University researchers in Japan found when aromas were diffused during test taking, scores increased by as much as 50 percent.

• Since Lemon oil is cold pressed from the rind, it does not have the acidic effect, which is hard on our teeth enamel.

• Lemon is also an important ingredient in natural cosmetics that may be useful for cleansing the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.*

• In his book, The Practice of Aromatherapy, Dr. Jean Valnet, M.D. wrote that lemon is a tonic for supporting the nervous and sympathetic nervous system. He also stated that the essential oil of lemon acts as a liver decongestant and diuretic and is a powerful body cleanser.*

• It takes 43 lemon rinds to cold press 1 bottle of lemon oil.*

**Caution** Avoid applying to skin that will be exposed to prolonged sunlight or UV light within 24 hours. Use a nontoxic sunscreen as citrus oils make the skin more photosensitive. **

– Lemon oil will eat up petrochemicals in our body. If you ever drank from a plastic water bottle, you’ve been exposed. Use in glass, stainless steel, and ceramic only because it will eat through the petrochemicals in plastic or styrofoam.

Lavender


Is called the “Swiss Army knife” of oils. Lavender is one of history’s most celebrated and versatile essential oils. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Young Living’s Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion.

The many plant constituents in lavender essential oil contribute to a vast range of usage. Today, we use lavender to cleanse, support normal sleep, ease occasional depressed moods, soothe sun-exposed skin, as a tea, and to reduce stress.

• Lavender oil is one of the safest essential oils and can be applied undiluted to the skin. The benefits of lavender essential oil are limitless, and modern research will continue to yield new and exciting uses for this amazing plant.

• It takes 170-250 lbs. of lavender plant material to make just 1 lb. of Lavender oil.

• Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.
