Thieves essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, this blend is a main ingredient in all the Thieves products.

All of the Thieves Products are essential to have on hand all year but especially when you have a bunch of kids in close contact. Diffusing Thieves oil and rubbing it on the feet in the morning before going to school and at night before bed is a great way to support healthy immune systems.

Young Living Lavender Oil It’s lavender harvest time at Young Living Essential Oils and we are celebrating with an awesome lavender promotion. Check out more details on that in the lower portion of this newsletter.

Lavender is often called the “Swiss Army Knife of Oils.” I need to be clear, I am talking about Lavandula angustifolia, sometimes called Lavandula officinalis.

Lavender is one of those oils that everyone should have on hand. If you have some issue that you wonder what oil to use, it’s a good bet lavender will be helpful.

Lavender is very soothing to the skin. It is wonderful added to aloe vera on those days when you are getting a little too much fun in the sun.

Make sure you are using true Lavandula angustifolia and not one that has been extended with a hybrid lavender like lavandin or a synthetic linalool and linalyl acetate. Many companies use things to extend the oil and thus make more profit. For example: Lavandin is commonly used to extend lavender. Lavandin is a hybrid that has 5-12% camphor as one of its constituents. Camphor is irritating to the skin.

Note: France is the number one producer of lavender oil. They export more than 100 times more lavender essential oil than they distill. Think about that. That means that there is a whole LOT of adulterated lavender oil being exported.

It is very important that you know where your lavender came from and that it is pure Lavandula angustifolia. I only use lavender oil from Young Living Essential Oils. I know how much attention to the highest quality pure oils they have. I have also visited Young Living Farms on many occasions, seen the lavender fields and the oils being distilled.

Lavender is one of the mildest oils and can be used for children and the elderly. It is one of the oils that can be used undiluted, that is, if you are using pure unadulterated lavender oil.

Lavender is very relaxing and is wonderful to wind down in the evening before bed time. I love to use lavender along with cedarwood at bed time. Layer a few drops of each, lavender and cedarwood essential oil, on the bottom of your
feet then inhale the oil from your hands cupped over your nose. You will love how relaxing it is.

Whenever I travel I use Young Living Lavender Vitality Essential Oil in chamomile tea before bed time. I make a cup of chamomile tea then add 2 or 3 drops lavender to the tea. Sometimes I take several drops of lavender in a capsule. I usually don’t sleep very well in hotel rooms. I guess I’m just used to my own bed. The tea helps me wind down and relax before bed time.

Diffuse lavender essential oil for a comforting and calming scent. Unwind by adding a few drops to a nighttime bath.
Diffuse for a fresh, clean scent and to eliminate odors. Lavender oil may complement some of your favorite shampoos, lotions, or skin care products. Just add a few drops for a wonderful lavender scent.

road-trip
Well, it’s that time of year again. there is always a lot of travel in the summer. Essential oils are always with me whenever I travel. There are lots of oils that can be helpful when you are on the road.


Thieves and Melrose are two oils I like to have for rubbing on my feet. I always hate walking barefoot on hotel bathroom floors. Sometimes you just want to take your shoes off but who knows how clean the floors really are. I guess I am a little OCD about it because I also like to bring a spray bottle filled with Thieves Household Cleaner so I can spray down the floor, tub and toilet. Just to make sure. 😉


Other oils I carry when I travel:


DiGize – Add to a gel capsule. Add 2 drops DiGize and 1 drop Peppermint to water for a stimulating beverage. Use as a dietary supplement in water when traveling abroad.


Peppermint – Supports gastrointestinal system comfort. Promotes healthy bowel function. Maintains efficiency of the digestive tract. Supports normal digestion.


NingXia Nitro – Contains naturally occurring caffeine and Bioenergy’s D­-Ribose to increase athletic performance and endurance.
Boosts energy and provides a daily pick-­me-­up. Bioenergy D-Ribose supports physical performance and recovery and increases overall energy reserves.


Deep Relief – Formulated with Peppermint, Wintergreen, Copaiba, and Helichrysum. Use for massage after activity. Inhale for an invigorating and energizing scent. Keep on hand for use at the gym to apply during workout. Blended with Peppermint, Deep Relief has a cooling sensation when applied to the skin.
The relaxing scent and fresh, cooling sensation of Wintergreen essential oil found in Deep Relief makes it a great choice for applying to feet after a long day.

To relax in the evening I like to drink my Travel Relaxation Tea but I also make up a relaxation blend:


Sleepy Time Oils Blend
30 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
30 drops Young Living Cedarwood Essential Oil

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.
