R.C. Essential Oil

 

When I started using Young Living’s essential oils, I knew there had to be something that could encourage proper nasal function.

R.C. Essential Oil.

I live in Florida. With the tan people. You would think I would be tan too. After all, I’m Italian. But, no. I go from white to dark white. But wait, that’s not where I was going with this.

In Florida, we have, how should I put it, weather with an attitude. Oh, sure, we have wonderful sunny days. In the winter. Or what we call winter. But in the summer, we get gobs and gobs of rain. But not all day. A typical summer day here can literally go from bright sunshine to pouring rain, back to bright sunshine within about 15 minutes. Not kidding. If you don’t believe me, come visit us some time. Oh, wait, that’s right, you and about a billion of your friends visit us every year. But you usually come during the dry winter days, and then leave during the rainy summer. Not that we Floridians feel used or anything. *sniff*

Speaking of the dry winter, the temperature can range from 40 degrees to 85 degrees….from one day to the next. And just so you know, 85 is a nice cool winter, and 40? 40 is just too upsetting to talk about.

So it’s nice to know that R.C. can help keep my normal nasal functions working properly.

R.C. can be used in different ways. It can be taken internally in a capsule, it can be diffused, and it can be inhaled. But I mostly use it topically. I apply about 2-4 drops on my forehead and cheekbone area to promote proper nasal function. 

So, what’s in R.C.? Get this – TEN different oils. It is PACKED with essential oil power. It contains 3 different kinds of eucalyptus oils, which promote proper respiratory function. It also contains myrtle, spruce, peppermint, pine, lavender, marjoram, and cypress oils. Those are all great for maintaining proper circulatory and respiratory function.

So feel free to ask me about R.C. (or any other oil) if you have questions.

Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit

18653506939_c296beffd2_k

 

So, by now, if you’ve been following this blog, you’ve seen a bunch of really cool oils showcased. And you’re probably thinking that you want all of them! The good news is that you can have them all – and you DON’T have to pay full price for them.

If you’re like me, your ears just perked up. Because I know that I don’t like paying full price for anything. I am all about  the bargains.

So, here’s the deal. Young Living took the ten most popular, most commonly used, and most LOVED essential oils, and decided to offer them as a package deal – at a deep discount, so that they would be affordable. Not only that, they threw in a home diffuser, some samples, a roller ball fitment (to replace the regular cap on the oils), AND a bottle of Stress Away oilThey call it the Premium Starter Kit.

Now, if you were to purchase all that goodness at the regular prices, you would be spending over three hundred dollars. Would it be worth it? Absolutely. But thanks to Young Living, you don’t have to. They offer all of these items to you for only $160. That’s less than half of the regular price!!

And here’s the icing on the cake. Young Living knew that once a person bought the Premium Starter Kit, that person would be so impressed with how great the oils work that they would want to buy more. So Young Living decided to offer all future orders at a discount as well! It’s true, after you purchase a Premium Starter Kit, all of your future orders are 24% off!

You know me by now. You know that I like to joke, to make fun of oil names, to make fun of myself (it’s easy to do). But I would not joke about this. This is the REAL DEAL. This kit is the absolute BEST VALUE for anyone looking to start using essential oils.

If you want a recap of all the awesome oils in this kit, here they are (in no particular order):

Stress Away Essential Oil

www.keepingitrealoily.com(4)

Stress Away. Love the name. Don’t you? I mean, picture yourself just pushing stress away from your body. Lovely thought. Well, Young Living’s Stress Away essential oil can’t keep all the stress from your life….but it can help give you a little peace, and maybe even a more relaxed perspective.

Just like the past few oils that we have discussed, Stress Away is a blended oil. It is made up of several different oils. Let’s take a look at those oils.

Copaiba

Copaiba, pronounced, “co-pie-buh”, is a very popular oil because it is very effective at supporting healthy digestion.

Lime

Yes, there really is a lime essential oil. And you can use lime essential oil to flavor your food, much like you would with an actual piece of lime.

Cedarwood

Cedarwood essential oil is great for promoting relaxation. It is often used in massage because of its soothing quality.

 Vanilla

I’m not making it up. There actually is a vanilla oil. Sounds yummy. The kind of vanilla oil that Young Living uses comes from Mexico (the place of more yummy things! – says the girl with a salsa addiction). It used mainly for…well, flavoring. I think it has a great smell too.

 Ocotea

Ocotea essential oil has natural cleansing properties. And it is used in some of Young Living’s natural appetite suppressant products, because it can give you the feeling of fullness.

 Lavender

You may remember the post I did on Lavender essential oil. You’ll probably remember that I gushed about it because it’s my very favorite essential oil. Why? Because it’s pretty much great for, you know, EVERYTHING. Seriously, it’s awesome. It’s used for occasional nervous tension, calming, rest, etc etc.  You get the picture.

So those are the oils that make up Stress Away. I bet now you can probably tell that Stress Away is pretty special. Look at all of those cool oils that are in it!! Stress Away is extremely popular among oily people (as in those who use essential oils, NOT people who look oily. Eww.) So what are some of the uses for Stress Away?

Well, it can help reduce everyday stress. Duh. Pretty obvious. But so important. Are there any of you out there who don’t have stress in your life?  *crickets*

Yeah, exactly. Stress Away can promote a sense of calm and peacefulness in you. It can be applied to your wrists or the back of your neck when you want to relax. 

Because of its soothing and calming properties, Stress Away promotes proper sleep and rest. Others have claimed it works well for occasional mood changes associated with the menstrual cycle. Once again, I claim ignorance, as I am a shiny happy person at all times, and have no clue as to what that is.

Ok, the truth is….Stress Away….I want to just bathe in it. Because some days…oh you know those days. Sigh. 

So anyway, on those days, Stress Away is a comfort to have around. I like to give stress a double whammy. Stress Away and prayer. After all, Jesus is the best stress reliever there is. He’s free, He doesn’t run out, and He’s very effective.

And because Young Living knows how much people love Stress Away, they throw it right in that Premium Starter Kit. Just to make it that more enticing. And awesome.

If you have any questions about Stress Away, or any of the other oils or Young Living products, please just ask!

Valor Essential Oil

Valor

Young Living’s Valor essential oil is a blended oil. There are 4 oils that are combined to make Valor.

 Spruce

Spruce oil, also called Black Spruce, is used to support the immune system. It is also used to support proper joint function, and help with occasional muscle pain after exercise.

Blue Tansy

We spoke about Blue Tansy last time when we discussed Peace and Calming essential oil. You will remember that Blue Tansy is good for soothing the skin.

Rosewood

Ok, first let me say this – Rosewood oil rocks. When I first read about all of the benefits of Rosewood essential oil, I was impressed. I had no idea that so much goodness existed in this oil that I really was not too familiar with. Ready? Rosewood oil is good for promoting relaxation. Ok, stop right there. I love it already. It has a rejuvenating effect on the body, lifting your spirits when you occasionally feel blue. And it can help relieve occasional nervous tension too. It is also used to help with those mild mood swings we get during that time of the month. I mean, hypothetically of course. I happen to be very well-balanced and good-natured at all times, and I really think my husband is kidding when he hides from me for a few days every month. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it.

Moving right along, rosewood essential oil is also great for your skin. It will cleanse the skin, no matter your age or skin type. I hear it’s great for wrinkles too!

Frankincense

You can see my earlier post on Frankincense to get a more detailed explanation of its benefits, such as supporting proper joint function and it’s also beneficial for the skin.

So now that you know what oils make up Valor, you should definitely be asking what Valor can do as a whole. You can rub a couple of drops of Valor on to your joints to promote proper joint function. And for occasional muscle pain after exercise, massage a couple of drops to the heels of your feet.

Valor is also said to promote restful sleep. It is recommended to apply Valor to the bottoms of your feet before bed.

If you’d like to give Valor a try, just visit the Order Oils page where you can place an order or view Young Living’s product catalog.  And remember, you can always ask me any question you may have about the oils, or how to set up an account with Young Living, or even how the weather in Florida is.

Peace and Calming Essential Oil

www.keepingitrealoily.com(3)

Ahhh, Peace and Calming. I love the name. Such great words to hear in the midst of our busy lives. Maybe one day Young Living will make a Peace and Calming drink. Then I can chug it all day long. But, for now, we have the oil. Which is pretty awesome all by itself.

Young Living’s Peace and Calming essential oil is a blended oil. Which, as you know from earlier posts, means that it is a combination of several oils. Those oils are:

Tangerine

As you may remember from my previous post on Joy essential oil, Tangerine oil is great for supporting proper digestion and supporting a healthy immune system.

Ylang Ylang

Again – we talked about the uses of Ylang Ylang in my last post on Joy essential oil. You will recall that Ylang Ylang oil is great for relaxation and for soothing occasional nervous tension.

Blue Tansy

This oil is beneficial for your skin.

Orange

Orange essential oil is great for promoting relaxation. And it smells like oranges. Win-win.

Patchouli

I went to Word Hippo again to find the pronunciation of this word.  Here’s how they say to pronounce it. Then I found a different pronunciation here. Which is how I say it. So I guess you can say it any way you want. Nothing on the internet is wrong. Uh, yeah, so….anyway, Patchouli oil is very good for soothing occasional nervous tension and for the prevention of nausea associated with motion.

So, when all those oils are formulated by Young Living’s oil gurus to make a perfect combination, you get the blend called Peace and Calming. And what is that used for? Well, uh, I think the name kinda gives that away. But to be more specific, here are a few things you can use it for. First, to promote restful sleep. My hubby uses this oil almost every night. Besides the fact that he is a very light sleeper, his mind seems to go into overdrive during the sleeping hours.  I just rub a drop or two on the back of his neck, but you can also apply it to the bottoms of your feet.

Another good use of Peace and Calming is to promote relaxation for your children. Diffusing this oil in a room where your children are can actually help them take it down a notch, as I like to say.

Lastly, Peace and Calming is good for gently soothing away tension. You can use it with massage oil in a massage, or add a few drops to epsom salts in a bath.

Hard to resist, isn’t it?
