Live the Dream

20140625_Pod_0187

Last month I attended the 20th Anniversary Celebration for Young Living Essential Oils. What an experience to celebrate, along with over 9,000 other people, the success of this amazing company!

One of the new products that was introduced to us was a new blend called Build Your Dream. This oil blend contains several oils commemorating the 20 year history of Young Living Essential Oils.

These oils are: Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia†), Sacred Frankincense (Boswellia sacra†), Melissa (Melissa officinalis†), Blue Cypress (Callitris intratropica†), Hong Kuai (Chamaecyparis formosensis†), Idaho blue Spruce (Picea pungens†), Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata†), Dream Catcher™ (Sandalwood, Black Pepper, Anise, Tangerine, Bergamot, Blue Tansy, Ylang Ylang, Juniper), Believe (Idaho Blue Spruce, Idaho Balsam Fir, Frankincense, Coriander, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium), Blue Lotus (Nymphaea caerulea†)

I have to say that I am pretty good at identifying quite a few of the essential oil scents, but not as good as a woman I met recently at an antique shop. When she walked up to me and said she smelled lotus, it nearly blew me away!

Blue lotus is an extremely rare and expensive essential oil. Gary Young searched for many years for this exquisite flower. Here are some interesting facts about the oil that comes from this flower:

  • It takes 850,000 pounds for 1 kilo of oil
  • It takes 3 days to gather the flowers for 1 kilo of oil
  • Blue Lotus is the most expensive oil
  • Young Living’s Blue Lotus oil comes from Shrilanka

Now I will tell you that Build Your Dream is my new favorite perfume. It is the most amazing and uplifting scent you can imagine!

There are still bottles of this special oil available for sale in a special commemorative kit that comes with the oil, a lapel pin, a booklet explaining the kit, and a special box for storing up to 16 bottles of essential oils. This is a limited edition collection, so I highly recommend you order it now while supplies last.

Discover the power of Essential Oils

Essential Oils are the ideal vehicle for achieving balance and harmony in each of the body’s systems.

Over the past few weeks I have been posting excerpts from my notes taken at the 2013 Young Living Essential Oils Convention. I realize the notes cannot do justice to the context and massive content conveyed, but I hope you have at least received a glimpse into the vast knowledge and inspiration that was shared.

If you would like to learn more about the power of therapeutic grade essential oils, please contact me via my website at http://www.sharescents.com and I will be happy to dialog with you privately.

Going forward, I may post less frequently, but thanks for following my blog and stay tuned for more great information about natural health and essential oils.  Blessings, Joyce

Choices

The following quotes were part of Darren Hardy’s (Success Magazine) presentation at the Young Living Essential Oils Convention in June.

  • Pick a frustration and keep a Thanksgiving Journal for 21 days – When you change how you look at a situation, the situation changes.
  • When in doubt… Just DO the thing you DON’T want to do. That’s usually exactly what you SHOULD do.
  • Small seemingly insignificant moment-to-moment CHOICES are what bring success.
  • You cannot own success… Rent is due everyday. Success is earned by hard work.
  • Immediate gratification is a trap on the road to success.
  • When working to achieve a goal, list what are the things to achieving this goal you don’t want to do (hard, difficult, scary)? Then, spend 80% of your time doing those things.
  • You are 100% responsible – what you DO, DON’T DO and how you RESPOND to what’s done to you.
  • Pick a frustration and keep a Thanksgiving Journal for 21 days – When you change how you look at a situation, the situation changes.
  • Hard reality – GOOD HABITS: Hard to create, easy to lose.

  • Hard reality – BAD HABITS: Easy to create, hard to change

Do something every day that scares you. – Eleanor Roosevelt

The Role of Sleep in Cognitive Fitness

Adequate REM sleep is critical to cognitive fitness — Here are more notes from a presentation at the Young Living Essential Oils Convention in June. 

LINALOOL and sleep– Sedative effect on humans of inhalation of essential oil of linalool: Sensory evaluation and physiological measurements using optically active linalool. “These sedative effects of linalool can be achieved even in low concentrations and may thus explain the efficacy of pure fragrance compounds and essential oils used as mild sedatives in folk medicine since ancient times.” – Heroshima University School of Medicine, Japan

Linalool in Essential Oils

  • Rosewood 87% (r)
  • Coriander 70% (s)
  • Melaleuca Ericifolia 45% (r)
  • Neroli 40% (r)
  • Lavender 32% (r)
  • Petigrain 25% (r)
  • Clary Sage 22%
  • Basil 19%
  • Ylang Ylang 13%
  • Bergamot 10%
  • Jasmine 7%

 

ROSEWOOD oil induces sedation and inhibits compound action potential in rodents “Rosewood at doses of 200 and 300 mg/kg could significantly prolong sleeping time and reduced sleep latency. Pentobarbital provoked similar latency at 100mg/kg. Both together caused a significant potentiation.” – Journal of Ethopharmacology – Paraiba Federal University, Brazil

OTHER ESSENTIAL OILS THAT AID SLEEP — Reduction of Benzodiazepine Requirements during mechanical ventilation in a child by topical application of essential oils (by Kamyar M Hedayat, MD) “A massage oil containing 7.5% Roman chamomile, sandalwood, and galbanum in a base of johoba oil was applied every six to eight hours. Significant relaxation was achieved within two hours.” – Lutheran Children’s Hospital, Chicago, USA.

It’s easy to oil

  1. Warm a cup, mug or glass (no plastic)
  2. Add 1-3 drops of essential oil to the bottom
  3. Remove any eyewear and close eyes
  4. Put face close to the mouth of mug; distance can vary depending on intensity of aroma experience
  5. Inhale through the mouth and nose for 1 to 2 minutes

NIGHTCAP

  1. Add a small amount of warm milk to a glass or mug
  2. Add 1-3 drops of essential oil and stir
  3. Add additional warm or hot water as needed
  4. Sip as a tea

Cognitive Decline

Here are some thoughts gleaned during a workshop on Aging at the Young Living Convention in June:

  • “Aging is associated with a chronic increase in the level of systemic inflammation that is relatively stable over extended periods, and predicts risk for general functional decline.” – Catarina Rosano, PhD, University of Pittsburgh
  • Nutrition is a key factor in reducing inflammation – Greens are a vital part of good nutrition. Consider replacing grains with greens!

Magnesium – the “spark of life”

  • Up to 80% of the US population is suffering from a magnesium deficiency – Carolyn Dean, MD, ND
  • The average American diet provides only 40% of the magnesium that we need in a day – Sherry A Rogers, MD, author of Wellness Against All Odds
  • Magnesium Supplement helps boost brainpower – Science News Feb. 2, 2010
  • Magnesium improves memory formation and aids normal thought processing – Natural News.com
  • Elevation of brain magnesium prevents and reverses cognitive deficits and synaptic loss in Alzheimer’s Disease mouse model – The Journal of Neuroscience “Our results suggest that elevation of brain magnesium exerts substantial synaptoprotective effects.” University of Texas, Austin, USA

Cocoa and human health

  • “Cocoa contains biologically active substances that may affect human health: flavanoids, theobromine, and magnesium.” University of Leeds, UK. – PubMed April 2013
  • Phenylethylamine (PEA) that occurs in raw chocolate is created in the brain and released when we are in love. PEA plays a role in increasing focus and alertness.
  • Anandamide nicknamed the “Bliss Chemical” is a neurotransmitter isolated in raw cacao produced in the brain and released while feelings of happiness and excitement are dominant.
  • Cacao also contains inhibitors that decrease the breakdown of anandamide so that the effect of raw cocoa anandamide is more long-lasting.

Core wellness

In today’s post I will continue sharing notes taken during the Young Living Essential Oils convention last month. There is no way to capture everything or do justice to the full content of the presentations, but my goal is to share a some random thoughts each day.

Following are just a few selections from Dr. Oliver Wenker’s presentation entitled “Core Wellness and Essential Oils for Exercise and Sport”:

  • Essential oils can be beneficial to both energize and relax the body. — For example: Peppermint can stimulate and also can improve absorption of other oils; wintergreen can soothe tension and muscles; copaiba can reduce inflammation. Essential oils can calm, reduce muscle spasms, and improve recovery after exercise.
  • An obese person who exercises can live longer than a person of normal weight who does not exercise.
  • Exercising for 30 minutes per day three times a week is only 2% of your time.
  • Exercise changes genes and helps your body become a disease fighting machine.

Exercise and the heart:

  • Decreases high blood pressure
  • Decreases triglycerides  and LDL cholesterol, and therefore less narrowing of blood vessels
  • Less heart attacks
  • Less strokes
  • Better oxygenation and less shortness of breath
