Jade Lemon Essential Oil

I have to say I am so pumped about this month’s promotion of Jade Lemon Essential Oil.  It is one that I have been wanting to try for a while!  I have read and talked to many people who LOVE it!  Let me tell you a bit about it courtesy of Dr. Woolley from Young Living.

Jade Lemon Essential Oil

So let me give you a brief overview of Jade Lemon Essential Oil in case you had trouble with the YouTube clip:

  • It’s grown in Taiwan, which is a warm and humid climate.
  • While other lemons begin to release some of their oils aromatically as they turn yellow, the jade lemon fruit remains green even in maturity, allowing the concentration of oil to continue within the fruit.
  • Jade Lemon contains high levels of d-limonene, which helps invigorate, uplift, and energize
  • Jade Lemon contains high levels of d-limonene supports clarity of thought and purpose.
  • Jade Lemon supports skin health but be careful in the sun with photosensitivity & UV rays
  • Jade Lemon helps open and release emotional blocks
  • Jade Lemon is useful to clean, detox, and purify.
  • A 1995 Mie University study also found that citrus fragrances induce relaxation and invoke feelings of happiness.

Essential Oils To Take When Traveling

Essential Oils To Take When Traveling

After the long & cold winter we decided to take advantage of our kids school Spring Break  & go on vacation.   Along with our summer clothes,  flip-flops, & sunscreen I always bring a few key Essential Oils to take when traveling.  Not only will they help protect us from “the different germs”  found in a public places and hotel rooms but other things that might make our trip “less than desirable” such as too much sun, stomach aches, as well as the general stress and anxiety of traveling. My Essential Oils bring a bit of peace of mind  which is so important to help me enjoy our vacation.

I bring a “Travel Essential Oil Bag” & put it in my carry-on where it is extremely accessible.  We all get a little queasy when flying or driving, so being able to grab my oils within a few seconds is imperative!   To be honest, my “Travel Essential Oil Bag”  is my bag of Essential Oils that I carry everyday in my pocketbook with an additional oil or 2!   The easiest way I have found to pack them to get through TSA security is to put them in a quart size TSA approved zip bag.  An added bonus:  most of my Favorite Essential Oils for Traveling are found in the Premium Starter Kit!

My Favorite Essential Oils To Take When Traveling

Favorite Essential Oils for Travel(1)

Thieves

  • Immuno-protective qualities A few drops in our juice every morning to help keep us healthy.
  • Thieves Hand Sanitizer or a couple drops of Thieves rubbed in the hands.  Use in the airplane, at the airport, or any public place. There is nothing worse in my mind then getting sick while on vacation!

Peppermint

  • Stomach Discomfort From Motion- A quick sniff or two helps settle our stomach down in a jiff.
  • Head Tension- a drop on my temples & I’m good to go within a few minutes.
  • Soreness- Mixed with  a few drops of carrier oil & rubbed on my legs or feet if I am feeling the effects of a long day of walking.  Can you say… “Ahhhh!”

Lavender

  • Sun Relief- If we’ve been in the sun a tad too long I rub a few drops of Lavender on the affected area.  It can be either “neat” or mixed with a carrier oil. It is soooo soothing to the skin!
  • Sleep Aid- If we are a little “wound” & can’t quite settle down to sleep, a few drops on the pillow & it is “Nighty-Night” time.

Citrus Essential Oils– (Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Orange, Citrus Fresh)

  • Hydration- I bring a bottle or 2 of citrus essential oils & add a few drops to  our water throughout the day. (Lemon & Lime are 2 of my favorites!)  It helps maintain our hydration when we are being active outside.  Hydration also helps to prevent jet lag!

DiGize-

  • Digestive Discomfort- If we’ve over-indulged a bit from dinner or eaten something that we normally don’t & feel a bit of discomfort in the tummy, I rub a few drops of DiGize rubbed around the navel.  It is a sure bet to help make our tummy feel better.

Peace & Calming

  • Relaxation- When flying, I  take a sniff or two from the bottle before taking off.
  • Stress- It gets a tad crazy trying to get all 5 of us ready, the pets settled & the house in order before we leave the house on vacation.  I will admit to a secret- I am one of “those people” who changes the sheets & mop the floors before leaving on vacation. My husband thinks I’m neurotic my response… We all have “our things” & that is one of mine!  In order to help with my stress, I diffuse Peace & Calming while I’m changing sheets & mopping the floor.  It really does help alleviate some of my stress.
  • Sleep Aid- We will take a sniff or two of Peace & Calming to help “wind” down after a busy day of sight-seeing or “fun in the sun” & to help us get to sleep.

V6- carrier oil.

  • I put it in a TSA approved plastic bottle to use as needed with my Essential Oils

Oregano Essential Oil

So, we all know that Oregano  is used in many recipes when cooking.  But, did you know that Oregano Essential Oil can be used in cooking & also has health benefits – I’m talking MAJOR health benefits!  My family & I take it daily during the fall & winter months to help support our immune system.  I add a few drops to a capsule with a few drops of Thieves Essential Oil Blend and Olive Oil and take it with breakfast.  We have not had a sniffle or a cold so far this year, so I feel that it has truly helped us!

Oregano Oil

Research

Oregano Oil is distilled from the flowers and leaves of the oregano plant. The main compounds, Carvacrol & Thymol have significant effects on bacteria & micro-organisms.  Carvacrol has been shown to break through the cell membranes of bacteria allowing the immune system to “do its job.”  Thymol is a natural fungicide with antiseptic properties.   Numerous studies have shown that Oregano Essential Oil has many health benefits. To read some of these studies on Oregano Oil which are published on PubMed.gov click here.

ImmuPower

ImmuPower is my “Go To” power hitter for keeping my family healthy. With the Influenza & Upper Respiratory Virus’ being widespread  throughout the area, it brings me peace of mind knowing I am doing the best I can do to keep my family healthy.  I have to admit that ImmuPower is not my favorite smelling oil (or my family’s for that matter!) so I apply it to their feet at night before they go to bed.  As an added boost, I also diffuse or apply diluted Thieves to their spine.
