Aromatherapy Suggested Uses 

Cold and Flu Season

It’s cold and flu season time so I thought discussing Young Living's  “Golden Touch 1” kit would be appropriate.  This kit contains 7 essential oil blends that can benefit respiratory, digestive and endocrine function.  With the holiday season right around the corner where we have a tendency to “indulge”, and “stress” levels seem to rise, our body becomes very taxed.  Here’s a great kit to help us through the season!

The following oils discussed and recommended for use here are from the Young Living Essential Oil product line.  Young Living Essential Oils is the only essential oil product line that I endorse.  They are one of the world's leaders in the cultivation, distillation, and production of organically grown, guaranteed-pure essential oils.  Founded by Dr. Gary Young in 1993, Young Living Essential Oils is world renowned for exceptionally high-quality essential oils, dietary supplements, personal care products, and other unique solutions for healthy lifestyles.

Endoflex is an oil blend that can help with thyroid, endocrine and hormonal balance improving metabolism.  Apply on chest, abdomen, wrists, throat, lower back, base of big toe (thyroid point).

Di-Tone assists in digestive irregularities and disturbances, excess gas and bloating.  Has been found to rid animals of parasites by applying to their feet.  Massage 1-2 drops behind the ear for morning sickness.  Apply to bottom of feet, abdomen, add 1-2 drops to a glass of water, or place 1 drop on tongue.

Melrose includes 2 melaleucas that are renowned for their antiseptic properties.  Used for burns, cuts, scrapes, rashes, bruised tissue.  Very beneficial for animals.  Has antibacterial, antifungal and anti-infectious qualities. Diffuse or create spray bottle to dispel unpleasant odors, apply topically to skin, place 1-2 drops on a cotton ball and place in ear for earaches.

Thieves is one of my favorites, a must for the cold/flu season.  Highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious.  Was found to have a 99.96 % kill rate against airborne bacteria.  Apply to chest, bottom of feet, throat, diffuse in home/work environment.  Mix with a carrier oil before applying to chest/throat if skin is sensitive.

Raven is a soothing blend to support the respiratory system, lungs, and bronchial tubes.  It contains an oil called “Ravensara”, from Madagascar.  May help alleviate symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis.  Apply to chest, throat, feet, place a drop on pillow at night.

Juvaflex is designed to help support the liver and lymphatic cleansing and detoxification.  Anger and hate are stored in the liver.  Juvaflex supports breaking addictions.  Apply to wrists, over liver or Vitaflex points on the feet.

RC gives relief to respiratory congestion, colds, sore throats.  Apply to feet/toes, chest, neck, add to humidifier, diffuse home, make a spray bottle.  Contains 4 different eucalyptus oils including myrtle, pine, spruce, marjoram, lavender, cypress and peppermint.

Last but not least, ImmuPower, an oil blend that is not in this kit, but I wouldn’t be without.  A powerful blend that helps support and strengthen the immune system. Contains frankincense, cistus, oregano, Idaho tansy, black cumin, clove, hyssop, ravensara, mountain savory.  Massage to bottom of feet, chest, 4 drops along spine.  Place 1-2 drops on cotton ball and place in ear for earaches.

Avoid  eye contact with the oils.  In case of accidental eye contact, put 1-2 drops of any pure vegetable oil in the eye, call your Doctor if necessary.  Never use water, and never drop oil directly into ear canal.

If skin is sensitive, add any pure carrier oil to the essential oils or to the skin (apricot, almond, grapeseed, vegetable oil).

Weight Loss
Olfactory Stimulation and Inhalation of Essential Oils: When we breathe essential oils, the olfactory system sends a signal to the limbic region of the brain (which houses the emotions), stimulating and cleaning off receptor sites around the cell membrane. Thus stimulating the master glands (hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal glands) to release chemical messengers effecting every thing from sex drive to energy, stimulating human growth hormone, serotonin, neurotransmitters, and thyroid hormones. This produces a profound effect on the body and mind. Can be used to reduce appetite and cravings.  Smelling and licking peppermint oil, or adding a drop to one's water can stimulate the hypothalamus to trigger a feeling of satiety or fullness. <  

Endoflex: essential oil blend associated with hormonal balance, helps stimulate thyroid function, improving and balancing metabolism and weight control.  Apply to lower back, thyroid, kidneys, liver, feet.

Body Balance: a milk and soy protein supplement fortified with vitamins, minerals, and essential oils. Helps balance the body at its ideal weight and promotes muscle formation.  *For optimum results, take with Master Formula His or Hers.

Power Meal: a complete vegetarian protein drink mix powder containing MSM, Chinese Wolfberry and rice protein, with a large spectrum of antioxidant herbs, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. Can serve as an excellent weight management tool. Free of fats and synthetic ingredients, providing most of the building blocks the body requires for regeneration and maintenance. Muscle burns 22 times as many calories as fat, the addition of muscle tissue can accelerate metabolism and contribute to a more slender body.

ThermaBurn: a powerful herbal formula for enhanced carbohydrate burning. Helps curb appetite for enhanced weight management.

ThermaMist: An oral spray containing herbs, vitamins, and thermogenic nutrients. It has an appetite and metabolism control.

Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder of soft tissues.  Symptoms include general body pain, in some parts worse than others.  It interrupts sleep patterns so the fourth stage is never attained and thus the body has difficulty rejuvenating and healing.   Fibromyalgia is an acid condition in which the liver is toxic.  It may be linked to a deficiency of minerals and trace minerals, including organic sulfur, which naturally occurs in MSM.  According to UCLA researcher, Ronald Lawrence, M.D. PhD., supplementation with MSM offers a breakthrough in the treatment of fibromyalgia.

Smoking Cessation/Addictions

Many food and chemical dependencies, such as addictions to tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, drugs, and sugar may originate in the liver. Cleansing and detoxifying the liver is a crucial first step towards breaking the addiction cycle. A colon and tissue cleanse is also an important step in the cleansing regimen.

Using stevia, stevioside, or FOS can help reduce sugar cravings. Stevia is a natural,
non-caloric sweetener extract derived from an ancient South American herb. FOS is a sweet-tasting natural sugar derived from chicory roots and Jerusalem artichokes that has no calories and important health benefits.

Trace minerals and mineral deficiencies can also play a part in some addictions. Magnesium, potassium, calcium, and zinc should all be included in the diet.

Single Oils: Peppermint, Lemon

Oil Blends: Harmony, Juvaflex (for liver detox), Peace & Calming, Exodus 2

Supplements: Cleansing Trio (for colon cleanse), Rehemogen (for blood cleanse), Juvatone (detoxes liver and reduces cravings), Stevia Select and Stevia Extract (both
may decrease cravings)
