Plant Allies & Young Living Oils

Bringing Nature into my Daily Life with Young Living Essential Oils

Plants have been our allies, our protectors, our food and medicine as long as there has been life on earth. The physical and spiritual presence of plants is deeply interconnected with our earthly existence throughout our lives.

Photosynthesis helps create a breathable atmosphere. Plant life nourishes all animal existence. Plant mysteries and histories are interwoveninto our psyches and our mythology, present in our relations with one another, with all spiritual beings, and with our dear home, Mother Earth.

Flowers and seeds, stems and leaves, roots and fruits feed us and clothe us, house and protect us, soothe our fevers and our fears and form the basis of our rituals and celebrations. Plant medicine has helped women and men to conceive life, to nurture life, and to die with grace and dignity.

Plants, like the myriad varieties of people on earth, have special qualities & abilities. Each of us resonates most harmoniously with specific plants and plant medicines. These plants are our allies, our spiritual guides and helpers. Our plant alliances nurture our physical and emotional bodies and assist us in our earthly and cosmic journeys.

I have been an avid user of Young Living Essential Oils since 1993 and have found them to be a powerful  healing tool in my life and in the lives of my clients, students, family and friends.

Here are some of the essential oils I use on a regular basis:

  • Lemon Essential Oil in my rinse cycle when I’m doing laundry.  I also like Purification when I’ve been in some “heavy” energy or smelly situation and Lavender reminds me of “going” home
  • I carry Peppermint Oil everywhere I go.  Personally, I use it to help my digestive system system and keep my breath fresh by putting a drop on my finger than applying it to my tongue.  A word of advice: start slow when using peppermint in your mouth – this is a powerful oil. If you were to apply several drops directly from the bottle this could easily send you out into orbit.  You get the idea…….moderation.
    Headaches are another important use for peppermint.  Again, apply a drop to your finger than apply to area where the ache occurs
  • Lavender sits by my bedside for the times that I find sleep evasive or when I have restless leg syndrome. Many call this oil the “Universal Oil” because it has so many uses.
  • When I have joint or muscle pain, I often use PanAway. My dad had a knee that needed replacement surgery and used PanAway daily instead.  I also like Deep Relief blend for muscles.
  • Stress or tension in your life?  Try Peace & Calming.  It’s name says it all.  All my children have used this when their children (my precious grandchildren) become hyper.

The Everyday Oils Collection includes: Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Joy, PanAway, Peace & Calming, and Purification.  Its a great way to begin your essential oils collection with some great “basics”. You can purchase it Retail or Wholesale (Distributor price is a savings of approx. 24%).  If this sounds like a good addition to your home, health toolkit – sign up here now
