back to school essential oilsIt’s that time of year again. The kids are heading off to school. With that comes more exposure to whatever will be going around this season. That is one reason I always have Thieves essential oil blend with me as well as all the Thieves products.


Thieves Oil Blend was created from research about four thieves during the 15th-century covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing the dead and dying. Thieves is one oil that is wonderful for diffusing.


NingXia Red is a powerful antioxidant drink that contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree and a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. Its health benefits include support from head to toe, via a whole body nutrient infusion.


There is often anxiety on returning to school at the beginning of a new year. There are always many changes: New teachers, new classes, peer pressure, worries about fitting in, bullies, studying for tests, and the list goes on.


The next three oils may be helpful to ease the stress of going back to school.


Stress Away Roll-On – This unique blend of vanilla, lime, copaiba, and other pure essential oils relieves daily stress, encourages relaxation, and reduces nervous tension. This oil can be used in the morning before heading off to school or after school to unwind from a stressful day. Apply generously to wrists, temples, neck, or any desired area as needed.


Peace & Calming is a gentle, fragrant blend specially designed for diffusing. It promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace, helping to calm tensions and uplift spirits. When massaged on the bottoms of the feet, it can be a wonderful prelude to a peaceful night’s rest. This is important for kids in school.


Brain Power is especially designed essential oil blend rich in sesquiterpenes. Use it to clarify thought and support concentration. Apply over the back of the neck, on the temples, on the soles of the feet, and under the tongue.


Valor helps balance electrical energies within the body, giving you courage, confidence, and self-esteem. It has also been found to help the body self-correct its balance and alignment.
How to use: Apply on bottoms of feet and to throat, wrists, chest, and the base of the neck. When using a series of oils, such as in Raindrop Technique, apply Valor first and let it work for five to ten minutes before applying other oils.


Clarity promotes a clear mind and alertness. The rosemary and peppermint found in this blend have been used for years for mental activity and vitality. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati discovered in a research study that inhaling peppermint oil increased the mental accuracy of the students he tested by 28 percent.
Clarity is one oil I like to use when I am writing. It helps me think clearly so


Cedarwood – contains the highest level of sesquiterpines. When inhaled, sesquiterpines have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, after which they can provide more oxygen to the brain! Place Cedarwood on your thumb and the roof of your mouth to release blocks to learning!


Peppermint – Diffuse Peppermint oil in the room while studying to improve concentration and accuracy. Inhale Peppermint oil while taking a test to improve recall.


Joy – This oil is very mood uplifting. If the children are feeling bummed out because the summer is over and they have to get back into the grind of the school schedule, Joy oil may be helpful in lifting their spirits.


Motivation may enable a person to surmount fear and procrastination and stimulate feelings of moving forward to accomplish new things. This is always a good one when starting a new school year or any other project.

This year two new products made with Einkorn were released at Young Living Convention. Einkorn is the original “staff of life” grain. It is the oldest variety of wheat.


Most of the wheat that is used today is a hybrid. Hybridization is a modern way of combining two kinds of seed species to engineer a new plant. It is man’s way of changing what God created into something bigger and better, or so they think.  Hybridization can happen naturally when plants are near each other and the wind blows and cross pollinates. That is not what we are talking about with the modern hybrid wheat. Modern wheat was engineered to have shorter stalks to create less waste and fuller heads of grain to produce more product, thus more profits.  Doesn’t it always come down to the almighty dollar?


The problem with the hybrid wheat is that it has been engineered to contain 3 genomes and 42 chromosomes while einkorn wheat has 14 chromosomes. Those extra chromosomes create new proteins that man was never intended to consume. They are foreign to the body and cause confusion in the digestive system.  This wheat is a major contributor to obesity and other modern ailments.

    1. It contains a Super Starch – amylopectin A that is super fattening.

    2. It contains a form of Super Gluten that is super inflammatory.

    3. It contains a Super Drug that is highly addictive and makes you crave and eat more.


In Wheat Belly, Dr. Davis explains that 5 percent of wheat proteins of a hybrid from two parent species are unique, not found in either parent.


Dr. Davis told CBS This Morning: “There’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten. I’m not talking about people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I am talking about everyone else. This thing, gliadin, binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite such that we consume 440 more calories, 365 days per year.” ref 1


It actually makes us more hungry for starches and carby foods.


At the time of this writing we have two new products from Young Living made with Einkorn. I’m sure others will be coming soon.

We have all the felt the effects of sleep deprivation: that zombie-like feeling that consumes us the moment we roll out of bed. Our eyes are heavy, we can’t think straight, everything in a blur. Like mechanical robots, we go about our day not fully comprehending what is going on around us.


The negative effects of sleep deprivation are quickly becoming an alarming issue. According to a recent poll, 58 percent of adults in the US experience symptoms of insomnia several nights a week.


Sleep-deprived individuals find it hard to concentrate or feel productive during the day. Perhaps worst of all, more and more are driving drowsy. In fact, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 100,000 of reported crashes occur as a result of drowsiness.


Getting a good night’s sleep is important for mental health and normal functioning, but it’s pertinent for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Single essential oils such as valerian, spikenard, and lavender are known for their ability to relax, calm, and emotionally ground a person. RutaVaLa, Peace & Calming and Gentle Baby are soothing essential oil blends that have similar effects. These oils can be diffused, inhaled, massaged into the feet prior to retiring to help ease tension and settle the mind.


DURING THE DAY:

  • Consume less or no caffeine, particularly late in the day.
  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine, especially close to bedtime.
  • Exercise, but not within three hours of going to bed.
  • Avoid naps, especially in the late afternoon or evening.
  • Establish a regular sleep schedule; don’t try to make up for lost sleep.

BEFORE BEDTIME:

  • Take a warm bath using a few drops of lavender in the water to soothe away stress and tension before retiring at night.
  • Rub a drop of essential oil such as lavender on your palm and smooth over pillow to aid with sleep.
  • Apply Peace & Calming or another soothing oil to the feet before bedtime to promote relaxation.


Young Living’s SleepEssence contains four relaxing essential oils in a softgel vegetarian capsule for easy ingestion. Combining lavender, vetiver, valerian, and Ruta graveolens essential oils with the hormone melatonin.

With summer coming up we tend to get out and be more active with gardening, yard work, hiking, sports and other activities. There are so many fun things to do we often find ourselves having a little too much fun. It’s times like that I am really appreciating the use of essential oils.
