Four (4) months, 16 weeks, 16 blogs, 15 bottles of essential oils or blends given away, 65 oils or blends discussed, all as part of the 99 Bottles of Oils on the Wall series. Really need to see what the record is for Longest Running Blog Series. Thank you for tuning in each week. I hope you’re having at least as much fun as I am with this series. I’ve been humbled and inspired by the feedback.
So, can I say that 2 of this week’s 5 featured oils and blends are Sacred? The other 3? One is a Sage, one will make you Slique, and one is Sensation-al.
This Week’s Featured 5: 2 Essential Young Living Essential Oils Singles and 3 Blends:
Sacred Frankincense: Young Living has a distillery in Oman, where the gum/resin from Burseraceae trees is steam distilled to produce Sacred Frankincense. It’s believed that the Frankincense given to the Christ child came from the resin of Burseraceae trees. Young Living is the first Western Country to be allowed to build and operate a distillery and to export the oil outside of Oman. Sacred Frankincense is known for its healing properties and supports skin health, stomach issues, and sore joints and bones. When diffused, Sacred Frankincense is calming, relaxing and great for meditation. Sacred Frankincense can also be directly inhaled and applied topically, neat (with no carrier oil). Sacred Frankincense is found in the following Young Living Essential Oils products: Oola Balance, The Gift, Progessence Plus and Tranformation. So, what’s the difference between Frankincense and Sacred Frankincense? I like to say Sacred Frankincense is like Frankincense on steroids.
Sacred Mountain: Sacred Mountain is a proprietary blend of Spruce, Ylang Ylang, Idaho Balsam Fir and Cedarwood. When diffused, Sacred Mountain promotes feelings of strength, empowerment, grounding (why I have this oil), and protection. Sacred Mountain can also be directly inhaled and applied topically, 1:1 (1 part essential oil to 1 part carrier oil).
Sage: Sage is distilled from the plant’s leaves, and was known as sacred herb by the Romans. Sage supports metabolism, hormone regulation and the circulatory system, in addition to being used for skin conditions. When diffused, Sage is clarifying and uplifting, with a spicy aroma. Sage can also be directly inhaled or applied topically, diluted 1:1. Caution: Avoid if epileptic or have high blood pressure. Sage is found in the following Young Living Essential Oils products: Dragon Time Bath & Body Gel, Dragon Time Massage Oil, EndoFlex, Envision, FemiGen, K&B, Magnify Your Purpose, Mister, Prenolone Plus Body Cream, and Protec.
Slique Essence: Slique Essence is a proprietary blend of Stevia extract and Grapefruit (fat-dissolving), Tangerine (calming), Spearmint (digestion), Lemon (purifying), and Ocotea (balance) essential oils. Slique Essence helps to support healthy weight management. Add 2-4 drops of Slique Essence to 4-6 ounces of water or Slique Tea, take internally as a dietary supplement, inhale directly or apply topically, diluted. Slique Essence is not recommended for diffusing, as Stevia may negatively impact a diffuser’s performance. Does Slique Essence work? Yes, if taken consistently. Sounds easy, but I must admit that I struggle with the consistently part. For the past 4 days, I have successfully taken one vegetable capsule (veggie cap) containing a couple drops each of Grapefruit, Lemon and Peppermint, topped with grapeseed oil, for weight management. Goal is to do 2 capsules a day, and I will get there. I make 15 capsules at a time and put them in the freezer to prevent the citrus oils from eating through the veggie caps and leaking. The oils don’t freeze, which is one way to test whether an essential oil is a good, quality essential oil. Somehow, the cold temperature keeps the veggie caps intact. I plan to use Slique Essence when on the road for work for the convenience. I’ll keep you posted on my progress with the Grapefruit, Lemon and Lavender combo and Slique.
Sensation: Sensation is a proprietary blend of Coriander, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Jasmine and Geranium. So much good stuff in this blend. Sensation smells mostly like Jasmine to me, which is divine. As the name implies, Sensation’s aroma is, um, romantic. Many of the oils in this blend are also used in skin moisturizers and to diminish fine lines. Sensation can be diffused, directly inhaled and applied topically, neat or diluted. Caution: Possible skin sensitivity.
