Welcome to the eighth installment of 99 Bottles of Oils on the Wall! This week’s featured 5 includes some heavy hitters. If you’re a bit detail obsessed like me, you may have noticed this week’s group isn’t in alphabetical order, which is the way I organize my oils, in order to find them quickly. There are two reasons for this: 1) My oils were out of order in my cabinet. I place certain favorites in front as a reminder. It’s not that I have all the oils, but you know I at least have 32 bottles of oils, right?! 2) I received Abundance and Aroma Ease at no cost (not a typo) last month as part of Young Living Essential Oils June promotions (free stuff). So, I thought I would circle back and introduce them to you.

This week’s Featured 5: 

Abundance:  Abundance is a Young Living Essential Oils  proprietary blend of Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Frankincense, Ginger, Black Spruce, Patchouli and Myrrh. This combination was used by ancient cultures to attract prosperity and magnify joy and peace. Abundance can be diffused, directly inhaled, applied topically diluted 1:1 (1 part Abundance to 1 part carrier oil). Caution: May stain white fabrics.

Aroma Ease:  Aroma Ease is a Young Living Essential Oils proprietary blend of Peppermint, Spearmint, Ginger, Cardamom and Fennel. This blend has a cool, minty, calming aroma. Aroma Ease can be diffused, directly inhaled or applied topically diluted 1:1.

Grounding:  Grounding is a Young Living Essential Oils proprietary blend of White Fir, Pine, Angelica, Black Spruce, Cedarwood, Juniper and Ylang Ylang. This balancing blend is used for feelings of clarity and to stabilize and ground, in order to cope constructively with reality. Who doesn’t need help coping with reality from time to time? Grounding can be diffused, directly inhaled or applied topically 1:1.

Helichrysum:  Helichrysum is a little pricey and was on my Christmas wish list last year. Hello, my name is Kim, and I’m an oilaholic. I ask for gift money so I can buy more oils. Helichrysum has a stimulating aroma and is great to diffuse when studying or doing homework and is a powerhouse for skin conditions and liver and circulatory systems. When diffused, Helichrysum is uplifting. Helichrysum can also be directly inhaled or applied topically neat (no carrier oil) or diluted (with carrier oil). Helichrysum can be found in the following Young Living Essential Oils products: Aroma Life, Awaken, Brain Power, ClaraDerm, Deep Relief Roll-On, Forgiveness, GLF, JuvaCleanse, Juva Flex, Live with Passion (the new blend released at the 2016 convention by the same name), M-Grain, Panaway and Trauma Life.

Jade Lemon: Jade Lemon is part of Young Living Essential Oils Vitality New Dietary Essential Oil Line, which means it can be used a dietary supplement and in dishes. Jade Lemon is also great in water or seltzer water. When diffused , Jade Lemon is pleasing and uplifting. Jade Lemon can be diffused, directly inhaled or applied topically.

This week’s featured oil is Aroma Ease. I’m paying it forward. The 5 ml bottle retails for $45.72 for a 5 ml bottle and is $34.75 wholesale. See below for how to get Aroma Life and other essential Oils at 24 percent off retail.

Until next week, or maybe sooner, you got me feeling hellu chrysum.
