31 Essential Oils in 31 Days Series: Day 30 Ylang Ylang



Day 30--Ylang Ylang!

Ylang Ylang is a sweet, rich and deep floral with a tinge of a spicy overtone. We love it but do we say it? Pronounced EE-Lang EE-Lang and originally from the Philippines, cananga odorata, is derived from flowers and used aromatically.

Considered an aphrodisiac, Ylang Ylang is spread over the beds of newlywed couples in Indonesia. It is known for its ability to uplift mood yet at the same time for its calming properties. I love to diffuse it with Bergamot essential oil at bedtime. Sweet dreams for everyone and my room smells heavenly!

Ylang Ylang is used to reduce tension and anxiety as well as helpful for impotence and increasing sexual desire.



Additionally Ylang Ylang commonly helps with the following:

-Arrythmia
-Colic
-Crying
-Digestive Issues
-Supports healthy insulin levels
-Exhaustion
-Fear
-Insect bites
-Hair loss
-High blood pressure
-Hormonal Imbalance
-Libido (Low)
-Palpitations
-Relaxation
-Sedative
-Stress
-Tension

Ylang Ylang can be applied directly on the area of concern or to reflex points. It can be helpful when applied over the thymus to stimulate the immune system. It can also be diffused or inhaled as well as taken in capsules.

Caution: Not for children under 6 years of age.

31 Essential Oils in 31 Days Series: Day 29 Black Pepper!



Day 29--Black Pepper!

My first experience with Black Pepper essential oil was taking a few drops in an empty veggie capsule to strengthen my immune system during a time when I was fighting a virus. I could feel myself about to get sick--on the verge of a cough, a high temperature, you name it. I had just received Black Pepper essential oil and something just pushed me to use this oil over the others in my essential oil cabinet. I'm glad I listened to my body, because this oil is potent and effective! After the first time using it, I knew I had already licked the virus. I continued to use it twice daily for several days and never got sick. I was amazed.

Black Pepper is best known as a common cooking spice that enhances the flavor of foods, but its internal and topical benefits are equally noteworthy. Black Pepper has a similar chemical structure to that of Melissa essential oil, contributing to its reputation as an oil that can promote a sense of calmness by soothing the nerves. This essential oil is high in monoterpenes and sequiterpenes, known for their antioxidant activity and ability to ward off viruses and bacteria.

Black Pepper promotes healthy circulation both externally and internally, but should be used with caution when applied topically due to its strong warming sensation. It can also help support a healthy digestion or get things moving when that is needed. This oil is suggested in my Constipation Essential Oil Blend here.

When taken internally, Black Pepper provides an en excellent source of antioxidants. You can take a few drops in a veggie capsule.

It is delicious for flavoring food and I love it in my homemade salsa, salads or roasted meat dishes. All you need is a toothpick dipped in it--it lasts a long time!

This oil can be diffused to reduce anxiety and stress. I love to diffuse it with a citrus essential oil such as Wild Orange or Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend. Topically diluted with a carrier oil, it can help reduce muscle tension and decrease joint pain.

Some people use Black Pepper essential oil when experiencing Back Labor.

One of the top things I recommend Black Pepper for to others is for helping to quit smoking naturally. Check out the post to stop smoking using essential oils.

I am happy to send a sample of Black Pepper essential oil to the first 5 people who email me at GreenLivingLadies@gmail.com. I ask that you not already be purchasing essential oils a Wellness Advocate/wholesale account and interested in receiving information along with your sample.

You can also purchase it here.

31 Essential Oils in 31 Days Series: Day 28 Spotlight Serenity!




Day 28--Serenity Calming Blend

Love at first... Serenity!!! One of the first oils I fell in love with and the one I still use the most to help myself and my family sleep (among other things).  Since using Serenity, my 7 year old daughter consistently sleeps through the night. Husband and I both use it for sleep and in fact, even our Black Lab and Pug get Serenity treatment to calm down.


I usually have a sample size of both Serenity and Balance that I carry around with me everywhere.  It’s one of the those oils that can help me in the midst of panic or frustration, elevated thought process (ie. ADHD moments) and when I am in need of  increased focus.  Serenity is a blend of Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood and Vanilla Bean Extract.

According to Modern Essentials Serenity is primarily used for focus, attention and hyperactivity as well as the following:

·         Addictions
·         Anger
·         Anxiety
·         Calming
·         Hyperactivity
·         Insomnia
·         Itching
·         Mental fatigue
·         Mood swings
·         Sedative
·         Sleep
·         Stress
·         Teeth grinding
·         Tension
·         Confidence
·         Emotional balance

The best way to apply Serenity is under the nose and to the back, feet, and back of neck.  You can also put in bathwater and apply to the navel, feet or back of neck for insomnia.  For your canine friends:  apply Serenity to the paws and in between the toes. 

Brenda is happy to send a sample of Serenity oil blend to the first 5 people to send her an email at Mindfullymadeoils@gmail.com.  We ask only that you are not already purchasing doTERRA wholesale and that you are interested in receiving information along with your sample.

31 Essential Oils in 31 Days Series: Day 27 Spotlight Basil!



Day 27--Basil!


My first experience using Basil essential oil was when I had pain in my ear and knew an ear infection would be coming on soon. I applied a few drops to the outside of the ear and back of ear and literally the pain subsided in seconds. 

As a mother of two young children, I am never without Basil essential oil. In addition to helping reduce ear pain and infections, it is wonderful for helping to naturally bring down body temperature in cases of a fever and too much sun exposure.

Basil essential oil has many versatile uses, including:

-Stimulates the brain to help focus
-Energizing, 
-Anti bacterial
-Headaches and muscle aches
-Flu and exhaustion
-Insect bites
-Stimulates hair follicles and skin cells when blended with rosemary oils and applied topically
-Minimizes uric acid in the blood helping to relieve pain and improve skin conditions





According to Modern Essentials: A Contemporary Guide to the Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils Basil has the following properties: Antibacterial, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antispasmodic, antiviral, decongestant, diuretic, disinfectant (urinary/pulmonary), stimulant (nerves, adrenal cortex), and uplifting.

Historically, Basil has a rich history and has been used for respiratory issues as well as digestive and kidney ailments, epilepsy, insect and snake bites, fevers, and epidemics.  The actual basil plant has been thought of an herb of blessings and protection.  In the Orthodox Christian tradition, basil remains sacred.  It is claimed that the basil plant sprung up from the foot of the cross during the Crucifixion.  Basil was originally domesticated in India.  Basil is also typically planted in houses and temples in India to bring protection and ward off evil.  The herb is sacred to both Visnu and Krsna.

Basil also has roots in some of the central regions of Mexico as it is used to draw fortune by hanging a large sprig or bunch in the door or window of a shop.  The plants growth symbolizes the wealth of the business and reflecting on how well the owner cares for the shop and herb.

Fun Fact:  Extracts from the basil plant are considered very toxic to mosquitoes.

Basil has many uses in addition to smelling amazing and increasing alertness. 

·         Bee stings
·         Bites/stings
·         Chronic fatigue
·         Cramps
·         Ear pain
·         Greasy/oily hair
·         Healing and promotes healthy cells in the body
·         Known to help balance hormones 
·         Mental fatigue
·         Migraines
·         Mouth ulcers
·         Muscle spasms
·         Anxiety
·         Concentration
·         Poor memory
·         Vomiting

Basil can without dilution when used topically.  For sensitive skin use a carrier oil.  Basil can be applied to the temples, tip of nose, reflex points, and/or directly on area of concern.

I am happy to send a sample to the first 5 who email me at Greenlivingladies@gmail.com.  I ask that you are not already purchasing oils as a wholesale consultant and be interesting in receiving information along with your samples.

 Day 26--Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend!
Who doesn’t dream of taking on the beauty and immortality of Cleopatra or the Greek goddesses? Well, now you can aspire to the first, if not the second, with dōTERRA's Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend.
Designed to nourish, anoint and protect your skin, Immortelle is a unique proprietary formula of doTerra certified-pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Together they deliver remarkable benefits for maintaining the beauty and health of your skin. I absolutely love the way this product makes my skin look and feel.




What makes this skin formula so special?

Immortelle’s uniqueness lies in its proprietary blend of six high-quality essential oils:
Frankincense, revered since ancient times for its healing properties, has been found to prevent the expression and activity of several proteins involved in the inflammatory response (a major contributor to skin again).
Helichrysum contains up to 10% diketoes, known for their renewing effects, and up to 30% sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, known as calming agents, as well as 50% esters, an antioxidant.
Rose is known for its excellent hydrating properties, as well as its support of the skin's elasticity
Sandalwood is anti-inflammatory and astringent.
Lavender promotes tissue renewal. 
Myrrh contributes to balanced hydration and supports tissue repair.

What results have been reported?
  • Helps restore sun-damaged skin.
  • Promotes cell matrix mending and tissue renewal.
  • Supports the reduction of inflammation.
  • Helps heal scars, including possible diminishment of size and color.
  • Helps your skin balance and retain natural moisture levels.
  • Soothes, calms, and brightens your skin.
Immortelle is easily absorbed and leaves your skin feeling and looking soft and smooth—not oily.

Who should use IMMORTELLE?

Anyone who desires more youthful and radiant skin. Getting older doesn’t mean you can’t still be beautiful!  Along with using Immortelle, drink plenty of water every day, exercise, eat right, take good supplements and you have a prescription for good health and natural beauty.

 Directions for Use: IMMORTELLE’S roller bottle makes it easy to apply to your face and neck and any dry or problem areas like fine lines or age spots. Use after cleansing, prior to any moisturizer.  Dilute with fractionated coconut oil or other pure vegetable oil if your skin is sensitive.

Cautions: Avoid contact with the eyes.

31 Oils in 31 Days Series - Day 25 The spotlight is on Vetiver



Day 25:Vetiver - Written by our friend Julia

Vetiver helps me focus and remain calm and balanced.  One of the common uses for Vetiver is ADD/ADHD.   Being diagnosed with ADD at 39, I have had to adjust to this new and quite liberating knowledge.  It’s helped me make sense of why I am the way I am.

I use Vetiver (in addition to InTune) to help me with the day to day challenges of having ADD/ADHD.  It has helped keep the chattering in my brain to a minimum as well as help me get a restful nights sleep.  I apply Vetiver to my big toes before I go to bed and now sleep better than I have in years. 

In addition to helping with ADD/ADHD, Vetiver helps with the following:
·         Balance
·         Termite Repellent
·         Vitiligo (discoloring of skin)
·         Blemishes
·         Trauma/shock
·         Night Terrors
·         Anxiety
·         Ance
·         Cute/scrapes
·         Depression
·         Insomnia
·         Dandruff

Vetiver can be applied topically directly to the area of concern or to reflex points.  It can be inhaled and diffused as well as taken in capsules orally.  As a perfume, Vetiver’s heavy, smokey earthy fragrance can be blended with Clary Sage, Rose, Lavender, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang.

If you would like to try a sample of Vetiver, I am happy to give a sample to the first 5 people who email me at js.balanceki@gmail.com.   I ask that you are not already purchasing these products at wholesale and be interested in receiving information along with your sample.
