DIY Health & Beauty Treatments: Baths & Body Scrubs- Part One

Making your own DIY health & beauty treatments is easier to do than you might think. Fortunately, many of us already have the ingredients readily available to detox, scrub, exfoliate and soften at our fingertips!

SAFETY ISSUES FAQ’s- Topical & Oral Applications of Essential Oils?

There are many reasons why I believe that Young Living’s essential oils are THE BEST oils on the market and try to document and explain these reasons whenever possible. I’ve added a must read article for those wanting to educate themselves and expand their knowledge base on the safe use of our oils and just updated my page ADULTERATED OILS & THEIR DANGERS with an article that was published in the July 2013 edition of Aromatopia (A Japanese journal) about the safety of neat, topical, and oral administration of essential oils entitled TOPICAL AND ORAL ADMINISTRATION OF ESSENTIAL OILS—SAFETY ISSUES by Johnson S, Boren K. Abstract. Multiple aromatherapy models exist, both advocating and discouraging neat topical and oral administration of essential oils. Recently, attention to these safety issues has expanded as a growing number of health care professionals and individuals adopt aromatherapy as an adjunct therapeutic practice.

Man’s First Use of Essential Oils?

Ancient writings, traditions, and historical records dating back to 4500 B.C. confirm man’s first use of essential oils and aromatics. Early historical records and writings record the use of aromatics as the evidence clearly suggests that the use of aromatic substances made from barks, resins, spices, and aromatic vinegars, wines, and beers were common place. It appears that the people from our ancient past had a greater understanding of the effectiveness and power of essential oils than we have today although the tide is turning as more and more research is being conducted on essential oils. According to my main resource reference book on essential oils… “The Eygptians were masters in using essential oils and other aromatics in the embalming process. Historical records describe how one of the founders of “pharonic” medicine was the architect Imhotep, who was the Grand Vizler of King Djoser (2780 – 2720 BC). Imhotep is … Continue reading

Young Living vs Other Brands of Oils

Prior to Young Living I used to think that essential oils were really nothing more than nice smelling scents. My initial experience with Young Living’s essential oils started back in 2007 and it didn’t take long to change that line of thinking. Gary Young’s initial experience with essential oils was very similar. He had used essential oils before but pushed them aside rather quickly as they never produced consistent, reliable results. Then someone introduced him to what Gary came to term as “therapeutic-grade” essential oils… and it was a game changer. I stumbled across an article in which the author was talking about trying other oils, saying that they would work just as well but save money. I had to laugh when reading it as it mirrors my initial experience with essential oils. I too thought I could purchase other oils that would be just as effective but at lower … Continue reading

Young Living, Urban Zen and Kent State in First-ever Nursing Program

Young Living, Urban Zen and Kent State in First-ever Nursing Program SALT LAKE CITY—October 25, 2010 Nurses have always played a critical role in helping others, but that help often comes at the expense of their own personal health and well-being. That was the primary message shared with 30 nursing students last month at Kent State’s College of Nursing. The students were the first to participate in a special curriculum of self-care for nurses, developed to help practitioners avoid being burned out in their demanding line of work. The curriculum is part of the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) program, which focuses on combining Eastern modalities and techniques (yoga therapy, essential oil therapy and Reiki) with Western medicine. Young Living partnered with Urban Zen to provide an Everyday Oils kit for each participant, and Young Living Gold Member Tracy Griffiths taught the students about the science behind, and benefits of, … Continue reading
