It’s Giving Tuesday and the Young Living Foundation is hosting a Change-a-thon starting at 10 am PT.
Their goal is to raise $100,000 in one day that will go to all of the amazing organizations that the Foundation supports.
Did you know that 100% of the money donated goes to the people that need it? Young Living covers all of the administrative and operating costs of the Foundation so every.single.penny goes to the people that really need it.
These words give you a feeling, right? Words are important, and so are intentions. Combine intention with mixing an oil blend for a specific purpose, and you truly have something powerful.
I love this month’s freebies because often people go for the necessities–Thieves, lavender, DiGize, peppermint, etc., and miss out on oil blends they may not be sure how to use. I know for me I overlooked the “emotional” oils for a couple of years before really giving them any credit. After the birth of my second daughter I got a Zyto scan at 2 weeks postpartum. I had found my temper quite short, and my feelings were frustrated all the time. Nursing a baby around the clock while juggling a toddler had left me frayed…I scanned for NingXia Red, Master Formula (multi-vitamins with digestive support), and JOY. Basically my body was nutritionally and emotionally depleted.
I’d been using Joy when I felt I was at my breaking point–frustrated and about to blow. After that scan I upped drinking my NingXia Red and started using Joy every morning, afternoon, and evening. Within two weeks I felt a noticeable shift in my emotions. I hadn’t been diagnosed with anything but I was amazed at how differently I felt and how my tolerance was lengthened and spirit relieved.
After that I paid much more attention to those emotional oils! I can say with absolute sincerity each and every emotional oil you can get for free with purchase this month has helped me on a deeply emotional level. Two of my favorite health books are “Switch On Your Brain” by Dr. Caroline Leaf, and “Heal Your Body” by Louise Hay. Both talk about the profound influence your mind has on your body, and when you combine that with the power of essential oils? You truly have something that can bring significant change. I’ve included which emotions these oils can help release as listed in the book, “Releasing Emotional Patterns With Essential Oils” by Caroline Mein–and I highly recommend grabbing a copy of her book as well!
Before we dive into the oily freebies this month and how to use them, let me remind you that this month and EVERY month you get free shipping with an order of 100 PV or more! Every month I see orders at 96 or 97 PV and wish they would have added a lip balm or lime or lemon vitality since they would have spent less!
What’s on your Walmart/Target list this month? Shampoo? Cleaner? Laundry soap? Face or Skin Care? Try swapping it out for something maybe not as toxic (I check everything on the Think Dirty app or EWG or the Good Guide and really read the info on why ingredients are listed as such).
At 190 PV you get the next level of freebies!
Gratitude: This blend was specifically formulated to elevate, soothe, and appease the mind while bringing relief and relaxation to the body. While the body is relaxing, the heart and mind can be opened to receive the gifts that are given each day.
The Desk Reference says that in Luke 17 Jesus healed the 10 lepers, but only one returned to thank him. This blend was formulated with that spirit of a grateful heart. This blend contains Balsam Canada, Frankincense, Myrrh, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Coriander, Northern Lights Black spruce Vetiver, and Geranium. Soothing for sure!
This oil helps release the emotions of Not Safe To…(be me, be in my body, live in this world, etc.)
Gathering: The perfect blend to bring loved ones together, this blend raises your attraction rate friends – if you’re doing a Young Living Business (or any business!), this oil is a must. Want to bring more people to your events? This oil! Also, this oil is great for anyone who needs to focus on their highest potential. I like to call this the self-improvement oil.
It’s gives us clarity and helps us stay grounded. The oils in this blend increases the oxygen around the pineal gland and pituitary gland, bringing greater harmonic frequency to receive the communication we desire.
This oil helps to release the emotions of Bad Feelings and Enslaved.
Admittedly these are just fun! Car Fresheners! Add a few drops of your fave oils, pop these in your car, in your drawers, a bag, or closet that needs freshening up!
When you reach 250 PV that qualifies you for even more!
Myrrh promotes spiritual awareness and is uplifting. It contains sesquiterpenes which stimulate the limbic system of the brain (the center of memory and emotions), and the hypothalamus, pineal, and pituitary glands. The hypothalamus is the master gland of the human body producing vital hormones including thyroid and growth hormone. So if you want to love on your hormones and thyroid, use your Myrrh.
I love dabbing myrrh around my sinuses too! This is also a wonderful oil for your skin. Add to your moisturizer or even just apply topically to your skin. It is hydrating and gentle. Myrrh can also help hold the aroma in your DIY roller blends. Add a drop of Myrrh and you will notice have the aroma holds and is more powerful to the nose. If you have a newborn, a drop of myrrh mixed into a 2ml of coconut oil and then dropped on the cord will make magic happen!
This oil helps to release the emotions of Fear of Facing the World, and Difficulty.
The 300 PV Level gets you two more amazing oils.
Believe : (this is one of my FAVORITE smells!) Believe was formulated with us in mind, to help each person release their unlimited potential. So many things can hold us back if we allow them to. That’s why I use Believe, to help me believe in the MORE that is within me, because I was created for so much more, AND SO WERE YOU! Believe helps to restore feelings of hope. If you are in a season of waiting, I hope you use this oil.
Put a drop in your hands, cup your hands over your nose and mouth and take a few deep breaths. Relaaaax. Put it in the diffuser! Add a couple drops in epsom salt in your bath. Drop on your hair then brush or put on the crown of your head! Let’s talk about what’s in it!
1. Idaho Balsam Fir: opens emotional blocks (the things that hold us back) and recharges energy. Gives feelings of strength and inner peace.
2. Coriander: awesome for stomach and health support.
3. Bergamot: both uplifting and calming, and does a great job relieving stress and tension.
4. Frankincense: considered a holy anointing oil. It stimulates the limbic system of the brain (where we process emotions), helps us to overcome stress and feelings of despair. Frank is incredibly uplifting, which is why we love it for keeping the hope.
5. Idaho Blue Spruce: grounding, stimulating to the mind, relaxing to the body.
6. Ylang Ylang: It promotes relaxation, inspires feelings of romance, restores balance and equilibrium, helps to calm the mind, and is a great balancer of male and female energy. And it smells wonderful.
7. Geranium: I love this one to balance my moods, especially hormone-related ones.
Believe helps to release the emotion of Dishonesty.
Hope: This blend contains Melissa, Juniper, Myrrh, and Spruce. This blend helps you connect with a feeling of strength and grounding, restoring hope for tomorrow.
For extreme sadness, rub on the outer area of your ears daily.
Hope is essential for moving forward in life. Hopelessness can cause loss of vision, goals, and dreams. This blend will help you to reconnect with a feeling of strength and grounding, restoring hope for tomorrow.
The blend contains Melissa, Juniper, Myrrh, and Spruce. It is also linked with the emotion of “blindness”- when we close our eyes to things and ignore them as well as lack of respect. Who could use some Hope this month and everyday? Here is a challenge for you – when you get your Hope oil this month, place a drop on your forehead daily and repeat a scripture or positive affirmation to yourself. See what starts to happen!!! And PLEASE go open your reference guide and look up the benefits of Melissa and Myrrh especially! Melissa is a POWERFUL (and very costly) oil. Use those reference guides!
Hope helps to release the emotions of Blindness, Lack of Respect, and Useless.
Well there you have it folks, I hope you get your hands on these oils (or maybe break one out you weren’t sure what to do with) and start using it. When in doubt, put it over your heart. There may be better ways to oil (raindrop massage technique on the spine, RC on the chest, etc.), but there is no wrong way to oil. However you use an oil, it’s going to do you some good.
