Anxiety during labor

Neroli

I love to see scientific evidence demonstrating how essential oils can be helpful in various ways. This study caught my attention, mainly because my granddaughter will deliver my first great grandchild soon!

The study was done by the Department of Midwifery of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Iran. The results of this randomized clinical trial confirmed that aromatherapy using Neroli Oil is an effective way of reducing anxiety during labor.

If you are interested in trying Neroli during labor, here is some useful information for you…

How to Use
  • Dietary: Dilute one drop with V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex or olive oil. Put in a capsule and take up to three times daily or as needed.
  • Topical: Apply 2–4 drops directly to desired area. Dilution not required except for the most sensitive skin.
  • Aromatic: Diffuse up to one hour three times daily.
  • Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health-care practitioner prior to use.

I remember the anxiety I had during labor and wish I would have known this information then! On the other hand, if Neroli does help reduce anxiety, I am guessing it would work anytime, not just during labor! I know I sure enjoy smelling orange blossoms on the trees in my sister’s yard.

Perhaps you will find this helpful.

Melt away the Stress!

Stress Away magic

 

I just have to tell you about one of my favorite essential oils. Stress Away!

OK, I know I just wrote about stress recently, but it seems like everyone is stressed out these days. There is so much to do and so little time to get it all done, right?

Pile relationships on top of responsibilities, and mix in a smidge of junk food and a dash of guilt and you have a powerful cocktail that is a recipe for disaster.

Young Living’s Stress Away™ essential oil blend is a natural solution created to combat normal stresses that creep into everyday life. Stress Away is the first product to contain the unique stress-relieving combination of lime and vanilla pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Stress Away also includes copaiba and lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium. Featuring powerful plant constituents, such as the cedrol found in cedarwood and the eugenol that occurs naturally in vanilla, Stress Away can help induce relaxation and reduce occasional nervous tension.

OK, that is how Young Living describes this powerful blend. I just say aaaahhhhh! Oh what a relief it is!

Slim down

Trim Down

 

Would you like to slim down a bit before the holidays? Now is a great time to start!

Here are three essential oils that may support you in this journey:

  • Lemon supports the liver and can boost energy.
  • Peppermint can help tone down your appetite.
  • Grapefruit – a natural weight loss appetite suppressant and through a process called lipolysis dissolves fat.
  • Bergamot – stimulates your endocrine system and produces a sense of calm and well being and alleviates stress. Lavender can be combined with bergamot to enhance this calming effect. Bergamot mixes well with many others for a “perfume”.
  • Tangerine – A diuretic and is also used to calm the nervous system.
  • Orange oil – helps overcome feelings of depression and gives emotional support.
  • Ylang ylang – used to clarify thoughts and assist in a feeling of wellness and calm.
  • Patchouli – used as a sedative and relaxation aid.

Two other products that I love for weight management are Slique Essence and Slique Tea. These two products were a big part of my personal weight loss journey a few years ago.

 

What Young Living products have you found useful in trimming down? I would love to know what you have used and how it worked.
