Every year about this time people start feeling like doing a little spring cleaning. Do you find yourself feeling motivated to freshen things up a bit after a long winter with the house closed up and the furnace or a wood burner running? There is something motivating about the spring. It makes you feel like getting out and doing things. I find myself wanting to give the house a good cleaning.

Most of the cleaning products on the market these days are full of toxic chemicals that are not at all good for your health. That is one thing I love about essential oils. They make such good cleaning solutions.

The Thieves oil blend and Thieves Household Cleaner are a good starting place for cleaning supplies. Thieves is wonderful for cleaning. It also makes everything smell great.

Citrus Fresh has several citrus oils in thieves-citrus-freshit and is a good one to add to cleaning. It is a good one for diffusing.

Citrus oils are very mood uplifting. Spring cleaning and mood uplifting at the same time.
How can you go wrong?

Make a spray bottle of water with 15-25 drops of Citrus Fresh oil to freshen bathroom or on kitchen surfaces.

Use 1-2 drops of Citrus Fresh oil to remove gum, oil, grease spots or crayon.

Laundry smells fantastic when Citrus Fresh is added to the wash water.

Cleaning Floors
To clean hard floors, add l/4 cup of white vinegar to a bucket of water. Then add 5- 10 drops of Citrus Fresh oil or Purification oil. If the floor is especially dirty, add several drops of dishwashing soap or Thieves Household Cleaner. This will clean even the dirtiest floor.

Furniture Polish
16 ounce spray bottle
Two teaspoons olive oil ( preferably the light kind)
15 drops of essential Citrus Fresh oil
1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water
How to use:
Spray formula on your rag or directly onto the furniture.
Wipe it dry immediately. The olive oil conditions and the vinegar cleans. You can also squirt some on your dust mop for your hardwood floors

Window Cleaner
1 quart spray bottle
White Vinegar
10-15 drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil
Fill bottle half way with vinegar
Fill balance of bottle with water and essential oil.
Shake & Use

Once you finish your spring cleaning, why not have a cup of tea with a couple drops of Citrus Fresh in it. It’s Oh So Tasty. ; )

Commitment to Quality, Purity Potency

More than two decades ago, Gary Young traveled throughout North America, Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East to find optimal conditions for distilling the world’s finest essential oils. Today, Young Living owns and operates three farms in Idaho, Utah, and France. The Young Living Lavender Farm in Utah is one of the largest essential oil distilleries in North America and our essential oils are purchased by customers in over twenty-five different countries.

Young Living’s line of genuine authentic grade essential oils and unique essential oil blends are sourced from the world’s finest plants.

A low-pressure and low-temperature steam distillation process is the only way to preserve the beneficial properties of the oils. This process is far superior to the inexpensive, high-pressure, high-temperature practice commonly used to distill essential oils in other companies.

Customizing the distillation of each plant species maximizes the benefits of the essential oil. Proper placement and compression of the herbs in the cooking chambers, as well as the correct application of steam to plant material, helps safeguard essential oil purity; high-grade, non-ferrous stainless steel chambers are used to prevent chemical reactions of the oils and metal.

Young Living farms grow over fifteen different types of herbs and source a variety of other oils from reputable essential oil suppliers. Young Living is committed to sourcing oils from other companies that adhere to strict quality specifications and personally inspect the facilities and use state-of-the-art chemical analyses to examine each batch of essential oil. Essential oils can go through as many as five different levels of analyses before they are released.

Did you know it takes 12,500 liters of lavender stems and flowers to produce 4 to 5 gallons of essential oil, and as many as 5,000 rose petals to make a 5 ml bottle of rose essential oil? Essential oils are the most easily and widely adulterated of all natural products, and when consumers use synthetic oils, they may experience a number of unpleasant side effects. Less expensive, similarly scented oils are often substituted, mislabeled, and sold by, competing brands. While the aromas of these substitutes closely match, their chemistry and properties are very different.

James Kababick, director of one of the largest independent labs for chemical analyses of essential oils, collected samples from Young Living’s Utah distillery and concluded: “Young Living has united modern steel technology with Old World gentle distilling techniques to create fill- bodied essential oils that are far different from what we normally see.

Young Living essential oils are not diluted with chemical and synthetic additives and are carefully prepared to maintain plant integrity. This commitment to purity makes Young Living’s essential oils the world’s premium essential oil line.

    PRISTINE LAND Untilled land far from pollution of urban centers.

    VIRGIN SOIL Fortified soi1 with organic biosolids, enzymes and minerals.

    SELECT SEEDS + CAREFUL PLANTING Non-genetically modified (GMO) herb vane ties are nurtured in Young Living’s greenhouse. Once they reach a height of 2″‘ the plants are moved to a “hardening house” so they can better adjust to the outdoor climate, which increases their chance of survival.

    ORGANIC WEED + PEST CONTROL No synthetic chemicals, herbicides, or fungicides are used. Instead, Young Living relies on Mother Nature to control insects and a natural blend of essential oils, including pine and cinnamon, for weed control.

    MOUNTAIN WATER IRRIGATION All crops are irrigated using pure mountain water generated from snow melt. Water is rich with minerals that provide essential
    nutrients to maximize Grit-growth.

    PRECISION HARVESTING Fields are harvested at the correct time of year and even the proper time of day to optimize oil quality. The percentage of the plant in bloom, the amount of dew on the leaves, and even the amount of rainfall immediately before the harvest can have a direct impact on oil quality.

Does your Essential Oil Supplier use any of These 9 Dirty Tricks and Adulterations to Extend Profits?

Unfortunately not all essential oils are created equal. In fact many, if not all the oils on the market are what is called “perfume quality” or “4th & 5th quality oils.

These are over-processed, chemical laden, highly adulterated and de-natured products that, in reality, are little more than cheap perfume made from various odorous plants. This includes oils found in health food stores. Many people think that when they buy an oil that is labeled as “100% pure” they are getting good oils. This is far from true.

Pure unadulterated essential oil is very hard to come by & can be very expensive. One reason for this is because it can take as many as 500 to 2,000 pounds or more of raw plant material to produce
just a pound of pure essential oil

Fact: The words “Pure” or “100% Pure” on the label can mean nothing more than the oil has not been diluted with a carrier oil or another cheaper essential oil.

Fact: In the U.S., a company can have the word Pure on the label with as little as 5% essential oil in the bottle. This just means that they have some of the real oil in the bottle.

Fact: Chemical additives can be included in some so called Pure Essential Oils.

Fact: Chemical additives fracture the molecular structure of essential oils, altering their chemical constituents, thus destroying their beneficial properties. And, of course, the chemicals themselves may present a health risk.

Some ways Essential Oils can be ADULTERATED

  • A common way to extend the volume of an oil is to simply add alcohol, propylene glycol, or acetate to the distilled essential oil.
  • Some oil producers add synthetic oils to the so called “Pure” oil.
  • Some oil producers do not actually add chemicals to their oils. Instead, they inject chemical solvents into the water in their boilers during the distillation process, increasing output by about 18%.

    Imagine what happens to essential oils when chemicals are added to water, which is boiled into steam and then forced into plants to extract their oil. It IS impossible for an essential oil extracted through this method to avoid containing at least SOME of these chemical additives.

  • Many essential oils are produced by solvent extraction and can wear the label “pure” essential oils.

    With the solvent extraction process essential oils are extracted by immersing plants in chemical solvents, such as hexane, petroleum benzine, ether, or carbon tetrachloride. These solvents are later removed by vacuum distillation. But . . . like the solvent injection steam distillation process, do you think it is possible to completely eliminate all toxic residue from oils extracted by immersing plants in toxic chemicals?

These extraction processes both destroy essential oil’s beneficial properties and bring their own health risks from the residual chemical additives which remain in the essential oils they produce.

Depending on the plant, it takes from 250 pounds to several tons of plants to produce a SINGLE pound of essential oil. It takes about 250 pounds of lavender to produce a pound of pure lavender oil, and several TONS of rose petals to produce a pound of pure rose oil.

As you might imagine, producers can dramatically extend their profit margin by extending the oils. The volume of lavender oil shipped from France is 100 TIMES the volume grown and distilled there! This suggests that 99% of all lavender oil coming from France has been extended, adulterated with chemical additives.

Other Dirty Tricks that will DESTROY oils:

  • Redistilling Plant Material: Essential oil producers often increase profits by redistilling plant material in as many as 5 or 6 distillations. They save the first distillation for genuine authentic grade essential oils, then selling the second, third and so on to the unsuspecting public.

    Imagine if you are using a teabag over and over. The first cup of tea tastes good but the second is not nearly as good, let alone 3rd, 4th 5th . . .

  • High Pressure, Heat Distilling: Distillation at lower temperatures and low pressure is the preferred method for producing high quality, pure essential oils.

    Imagine pressure cooking a salad: Nutritionists tell us not to boil our vegetables because the hot water removes the vitamins and nutrients. Similarly, “boiling” plants to extract their essence destroys many of a plant’s fragile constituents.

    Keeping the distiller’s temperature low is a must.

    • Essential oils MUST be distilled for the proper length of time to release all their active constituents.

      For example, cypress must be distilled for 24 hours to release all the chemical
      constituents. Most distilling operations, throughout the world, only distill
      cypress one hour and 15 minutes.

      Similarly, lavender does not produce all its beneficial constituents
      unless it is distilled for one hour and 30 minutes; but most lavender is distilled
      for only 15 minutes! Three-quarters of the volume is extracted during the first
      quarter of the distillation process.
      Many producers end the process there because the increased time does not
      significantly increase the volume. Time is “only” a crucial factor to extracting
      the plant’s beneficial properties.

  • Soil Quality/ Pesticides: Another factor in the purity of the oils is the land on which the plants are grown. Inexpensive essential oils are usually produced by large farm operations that use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Pesticides are oil-soluble and their residue remains in
    essential oils extracted from pesticide-treated plants.

    Some of the lavendin grown in Russia and China (used to make much of the so-called lavender oil sold around the world) actually contains radioactive isotopes because of the nuclear fallout from Chernobyl. Imagine using an essential oil extracted from plants containing radioactive isotopes
    AND to which chemicals have been added to extend the oil — synthetic linolol acetate to improve the fragrance, and propylene glycol to increase the volume!

  • Passing Off Hybrids as Pure: Some unscrupulous brokers market an engineered hybrid “lavendin” as true Lavandula officinalis. Lavendin can be adulterated by flash­ing off (burning off) the camphor and adding synthetic linalyl acetate. These brokers hope to represent lavendin as true lavender to increase profits.
  • In addition, some bottles do not contain the oil stated on the label. Oils marked as “clove” may be distilled from the leaf instead of the bud. Clove leaf oil is less expensive but does not have the same chemistry or properties as clove bud oil. Many times, essential oils marked “cinnamon” are actually “cassia.”

Fact: According to an independent laboratory in California, Flora Research,
MOST essential oils sold are either synthetic or adulterated with chemical additives.

Fact: Young Living is the largest grower of essential oil plants in the world.

We all have days when we are not motivated and we can’t seem to keep focused on the things we want to accomplish. Sometimes our lack of motivation ends up in procrastination. This is especially a problem when we feel fear or discomfort about something that may be involved with a task or a new direction we are taking in our life or business.

Motivation essential oil is a wonderful oil from Young Living Essential Oils. Motivation oil was created to help overcome fear and procrastination.  It also promotes feelings of action and accomplishment. Motivation is one oil I am using a lot these days. I especially love this oil on those days when I feel a little depressed. Those are the days I really have trouble with motivation. Is that the same with you? Don’t you have trouble on those days?

The Law of Attraction is an amazing energy. It is always at work. We attract whatever matches the energy or vibrations we are sending out or radiating. If we have a fearful energy because we are listening to the news and hearing about how bad the economy is, we will attract negative things. It becomes more difficult to attract the abundance we want in our life.

I have been using Abundance oil for over 15 years. It was the first Young Living oil I used and it is the reason I am with Young Living Essential Oils today.

Abundance Essential Oil BlendAbundance oil raises your energy to a more attracting energy. It also is very mood uplifting. Abundance is a wonderful oil to enhance the Law of Attraction. EFT is also a powerful tool to use along with the law of attraction. Put EFT and Abundance oil together and you have a really powerful tool to attract abundance.

Daily EFT can really set the tone for your abundance energy as you set about to do the daily tasks in your business. Not only does EFT help remove fears but it also enhances the law of attraction.

If you are in any kind of business, you need to have a good energy that attracts business. This good energy is needed in all aspects of our life, not just business. We can be abundant in all kinds of ways. When we have a good positive energy, we have a better mood and things just seem to work better. We have more fun in our life. Abundance overflows into all areas of our life.

The EFT tapping session in the video below is full of positive affirmations around attracting abundance. Put a couple drops of Abundance oil blend on your fingertips and begin tapping.
