What is Raindrop Technique?

Have you heard of Raindrop Technique?

I first learned about this amazing techique in 2004. I heard it was very special and I was curious. I searched for several months to find anyone who knew how to do it. I was a bit concerned and had a lot of questions, but decided to give it a try.

I scheduled the suggested three sessions spaced apart by two weeks between each session. After the first session, I felt the best I had felt in over 15 years, and each time I saw more improvement.

This led me seek out training in how to do the Raindrop Technique. I wanted to share this amazing new information with everyone, so I enrolled in an intensive training course. Since that time, I have shared Raindrop with many friends and family members.

What is the Raindrop Technique? Well in one short sentence, it is a method of applying Young Living Essential Oils to the feet and back in a specific sequence utilizing several techniques from Native cultures. The result is both relaxing and invigorating. It is very supportive to the muscles and joints as well as the immune system.

Ways to use essential oils

When you think of essential oils does the term aromatherapy come to mind?

It is true that smelling essential oils is one of the more common ways people make use of them. In fact, in light of recent weather disasters in our country and around the world, I think aromatherapy is an excellent way to help with emotional trauma, and I wish more people would become aware of the benefits of aromatherapy.

Have you ever considered the power of our sense of smell? It is a unique sense, in that the molecules we smell through our nose travel directly into the emotional part of the brain called the Limbic area. From there chemical messages are sent out to the rest of the body, by-passing the areas of the brain where thoughts happen. So aromatherapy is one of the fastest ways to benefit the body.

Another way to use essential oils is topically. We often think about massage when talking about topical use. But I also have applied essential oils to an area of my body that is asking for some comfort. Many oils are soothing to the skin and even can be nourishing. Two that come to mind right are Lavender and Frankincense.

A lesser known way to use essential oils is by ingesting them. This is probably one of the more controversial methods of using oils. But let’s think logically for a moment. Do you eat lemons? Do you use spices in your food? Do you like peppermint flavored foods? So if you answered yes to any of these questions, then why would you object to using essential oils that come from those plants internally?

Here’s the thing that is imperative to remember for all these ways of using essential oils: They are VERY POTENT. Less is more. For example, did you know that one drop of pure peppermint essential oil is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea? So if you want to add peppermint oil to your water to make a refreshing beverage, you might want to only dip a toothpick into your oil and then swirl it in your glass or stainless water bottle. Or perhaps add only one drop to a one-gallon glass pitcher.

In our last article, we mentioned that not all oils are created equal, so it is extremely important to read your bottle labels to be sure they are safe to use internally. Young Living has an entire line of oils called “Vitality Oils” that are labeled and safe for internal consumption. Have some fun exploring the many choices and if you want more information about ways to use oils in your cooking, please contact me at Joyce@ShareScents.com.

Stress reduction after surgery

I ran across a study that was actually done several years ago, but it caught my attention, so I decided to share it with you.

This study suggests that intraoperative music may decrease postoperative pain, and that postoperative music therapy may reduce anxiety, pain and morphine consumption. Click here for the abstract. The music that was used in the study was calming, soothing music, and the result was that there was a significantly greater decrease in the level of cortisol in the postoperative music group vs. the control group. Participants reported less pain and a lower need for morphine.

I got to thinking that if music alone had this much benefit, what would happen if soothing music was combined with the use of essential oils?

I remember when I had an MRI, I took along my own CD with some of my favorite soothing music. And I applied some essential oil to my neck area, temples, and over my heart. I was very peaceful throughout the time it took for the MRI.

What oils would be good ones to try? Well, everyone has their favorites in oils that calm them, just like everyone has their favorite genre of music. But I am thinking that stimulating music would be counterproductive to the relaxation objective in most cases. The same would be true for essential oils. For that reason, I would personally select from a list that could include Stress Away, Peace and Calming, Lavender, German Chamomile, Tranquil, Cedarwood, Valor, etc. The list will vary depending on your individual personality, what you might have available to you, etc.

So if you find yourself facing surgery, you might want to pack some tunes and some oils in your hospital bag! And I wish you a speedy recovery.

Home Spa Treatment

Spa Treatment Lavender

One of my favorite things to do when I am stressed or not feeling well is to take a nice hot, relaxing bath. In the past I would use Baking Soda and Epsom Salts, but when I learned about how helpful essential oils are, I started adding them to my bath. My, what a difference it made!

My special home spa bath always includes lavender essential oil because it is so relaxing, but sometimes I also add other oils that just seem to fit the occasion. Maybe some eucalyptus, or Stress Away  or Release essential oil blend from Young Living, There are so many wonderful oils to choose, the possibilities are endless!

What oils have you used in your bath? How do you feel afterward? Please share!

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!

Diabetes, Essential Oils, Stress

Work-related stress

Stress is known to cause many health problems. Headaches, insomnia, cardiovascular challenges of many kinds. But recently a link has been found to Type II Diabetes.

“Researchers have now discovered that individuals who are under a high level of pressure at work face an about 45 percent higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who are subjected to less stress at their workplace.” — Science Daily August 8, 2014

This is significant and something that few people might associate with their increasing list of health concerns. Many people feel trapped between their need to provide financially for themselves and/or their family, and their increased levels of stress and how this is affecting their health.

If work-place stress is a concern you have, you may want to consider some of my favorite stress relievers: Lavender, Chamomile and Stress Away. You would be amazed at the difference they can make!

I also would love to share with you how changing my career has brought amazing fulfillment and relief from stress to my life! I love being my own boss and helping people find wellness, purpose and abundance for themselves. Send me a note and let’s talk soon! There really is a better way!
