Essential Oil use dates back to ancient civilizations. They were used in Ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, Greece and Rome. Essential oils were considered medicines of the earth. Many of the perfumes and products we use today are made to imitate the fragrances and cleansing properties that are naturally found in essential oils.
It is believed that Essential Oils help promote a healthy lifestyle.
They are stimulating to the circulatory system and digestive system.
In other words, essential oils work to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The increase in blood flow that can be caused by Essential Oils leads to the immune system working more efficiently.
The fresh aroma given off by essential oils can also improve mood and emotion.
There are around 300 different essential oils in existence and each one has several uses. You only need 10-20 to have an effective kit….but lets be real, who doesn’t want all of them?!
The Young Living Premium Starter Kit comes with eleven 5mL bottles of Essential Oils (listed below). I have tried them all.
I am going to begin this blog by addressing how I have been using each of the oils included in the starter kit.
Peppermint Vitality™ 5-ml
Lemon Vitality™ 5-ml
Copaiba Vitality™ 5-ml
Thieves® Vitality™ 5-ml
DiGize™ Vitality™ 5-ml
Stress Away™ 5-ml
This week the spotlight is on my MOST USED: LEMON Vitality.
The Vitality line is edible, yum!! I have been cooking with it, cleaning with it, diffusing it and absolutely loving it. A tiny bit goes a long way in recipes. My sink looks great. It smells refreshing and is totally deodorizing that diaper filled garbage that should have been taken out last night.
Stay tuned for details on why I love Lemon Essential Oil and how I’ve been using it.
