Spice Oils Enhance Flavor and Health

We are right in the middle of winter and with all this cold weather I just love to cook soup, how about you?  My favorite is vegetable soup with a bunch of fresh, organic vegetables; sometimes I’ll add some chicken.  Now that I’m using Young Living Essential Oils I like to use their wonderful selection of spice oils, as well as fresh or dried herbs, whatever I have available when the soup mood hits me.  The spice oils enhance the flavor of food and benefit our health.

vegetable soup

One of my favorite Young Living spice oils is Thyme.  It has so many health benefits that I wanted to share some of those benefits in a post.  When you cook with therapeutic grade essential oils you don’t want to add them during the cooking/heating process, you want to wait until you are finished and then add them, wait a few minutes to let the essential oils penetrate throughout, and then serve.  If you add them during the cooking/heating process you will lose the therapeutic qualities of the essential oils; they will retain their aroma and taste, but you will miss out on the many health benefits that were in each drop.

Thyme Essential Oil

Thyme Essential Oil

Young Living’s Thyme is grown in Utah, and France, and because of the climate, rainfall, cooler temperatures, etc., the plants contain a great family of natural chemical constituents.  Young Living takes great care in how they distill their oils to ensure that these naturally occurring healing properties remain intact so they can truly be called Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.  Learn more about our process here at SeedtoSeal.com.

Thymol is one of the natural key constituents in Thyme and ranges from 37-55%.  Thymol is important as it is great for nerves; and it restores the integrity of the tissue of organs that are made of fat.  Just to note, our brain and liver are made of fat, so taking it internally, either with our food, or in capsules, or also applied topically will benefit our brain and liver,

so adding Thyme spice oil to enhance your food is a “no-brainer”.

I’ve heard it said that Thyme, Basil and Oregano are like the Three Musketeers when it comes to dealing with bugs – knocking out types of bugs, so add them to your food whenever you can to keep your family healthy (more about Basil and Oregano in my next post).

Thyme is powerful for the cardiovascular system and circulatory system.  It’s also great for both male and female organs – the prostate and uterus – as it helps restore and maintain healthy normal function of those organs.

Thyme is also great for the respiratory system and so it’s a great spice oil to add to soup when your respiratory system needs help.

Did you know Thyme essential oil is also great for snoring?  Rub on back of neck and on bottom of big toe before going to bed.  Try it out and let me know how it works for you.

And you thought you were just making a pot of soup!  Use Young Living’s spice oils to enhance the flavor of your food and your health, and this month (February 2015) you can get a 5ml bottle of Thyme for free with any order of 190 PV or more.

Understanding the Grades of Oils

Understanding Grades of Oils

Something that was not clear to me at first is that there is a BIG difference between the types of Essential Oils. For all I knew, oils were oils, and even though I knew about lavender scented products in my local health food stores, I had no idea about the possibilities of supporting my health, naturally, with Essential Oils. Let me explain, all Young Living Essentials Oils are pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. That means care has been given to every single drop, to ensure that the medicinal properties have been retained.

Lavender Feature

Young Living’s Lavender Essential Oil

 

Young Living’s vast collection of essential oils, singles and blends, are derived from plants, and essential oils have been revered for centuries for their restorative properties to body, mind, and spirit.  Essential oils are highly concentrated, volatile, aromatic essences of plants, also called the “life-blood” of the plant. Essential oils contain hundreds of organic constituents, including hormones, vitamins and other natural elements that work on many levels. One drop can be 50 to 100 times more concentrated than the oils in dried herbs.

There are 4 Grades of Essential Oils:

  • Grade A oils are pure therapeutic quality and are usually made from organically grown plants distilled at the proper temperatures using steam distillation (“cool steam distillation”).
  • Grade B oils are food grade; they may contain synthetics, pesticides, fertilizers, extenders, or carrier oils.
  • Grade C oils are perfume grade and may contain the same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils. They usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil per harvest. Solvents are normally cancerous.
  • Floral Water is a byproduct of the distillation process; it can be a very high quality IF it comes from a Grade A distillation process. Accordingly, it is of low quality if it comes from poor quality raw materials and/or poor (high temperature) distillation processes. It is usually found in skin and hair products.
Know the difference.

Know the difference between the different grades of essential oils.

“I learned of the oils during a yoga class, at a time when I was spending good money to supplement my nutrition with herbs. I now know that essential oils greatly enhance the body’s absorption of nutrients, and add exponentially more concentrated effectiveness, not to mention the almost intangible “feel good” benefits I am still discovering. I call it Feeling Fitness as I believe the oils most profoundly heal at the level of feelings and attitudes. I have always enjoyed the smell of some oils, but it has taken me years to appreciate the inherent wisdom of how they work, within me and the people I have had opportunity to share them with. Young Living Essential Oils have brought me some very miraculous moments, and I’m certain that they will bring you some too.” Tim Owen

A WORD ABOUT PURITY

Don’t be fooled! Young Livings oils are therapeutic grade. They are derived directly from the plant, as intended by our Creator, not in a laboratory (check out Ezekiel 47:12, the verse I got my business name from – Ezekiel’s Tree). They are never extended/adulterated with chemicals. Don’t think that you can purchase less expensive essential oils and get the same results.

Case in point – here is an excerpt from Young Living’s blog where D. Gary Young is giving an update on Winter Harvest and our new Northern Lights Aromatic Farm in Canada:

“Because of Canada’s regulations, we are still waiting to start the new distillery’s boiler and have had to put in equipment that we’ve never had to install before to meet specific requirements. We even brought in an X‑ray machine and X-rayed every weld on every pipe in the distillery!  We have also put in specialized water treatment systems because the water has to be at a specific pH for the boiler specifications. 

“Because I won’t use chemicals to get the water’s pH where it needs to be, we had to actually have a water treatment system built. If I had compromised and gone with chemicals, we would probably be in operation already.”

Gary Young is not willing to compromise the quality and purity of the essential oils that bear his name.  I have heard him say he would rather do without (an oil) than compromise (the quality and purity).

ADULTERATED OILS AND THEIR DANGERS

Today much of the lavender oil sold in America is the hybrid called lavandin, which is cut with chemicals to improve the fragrance. Then solvents are added and it is sold in the United States as lavender oil. Most consumers don’t know the difference, and are happy to buy it for $3 to $10 per half ounce in health food stores, beauty salons, grocery and department stores, and through mail order.

Some people wonder why they do not get the benefit they expected and conclude that essential oils do not have much value. Most likely, they purchased either a synthetic or adulterated oils. Adulterated and mislabeled essential oils present dangers for consumers. One woman who had heard of the ability of lavender oil to heal burns used “lavender oil” purchased from a local health food store when she spilled boiling water on her arm. But the pain intensified and the burn worsened, so she later complained that lavender oil was worthless for healing burns. When her “lavender” oil was analyzed, it was found to be lavandin, the hybrid lavender that is chemically very different from pure Lavandula angustifolia. Lavandin contains high levels of camphor (12-18 percent) and can itself burn the skin. In contrast, true lavender contains virtually no camphor and has burn healing agents not found in lavandin.

Adulterated oils that are cut with synthetic extenders can cause rashes, burning, and skin irritations. Solvents can all cause allergic reactions, besides being devoid of any therapeutic effects. Even so-called “nature identical” essential oils (structured essential oils that have been chemically duplicated using 5 to 15 of the essential oil’s primary chemical compounds in synthetic form) can produce unwanted side effects or toxicities. Isolated compounds may be toxic; however pure essential oils, in most cases, are not. This is because natural essential oils contain hundreds of different compounds, some of which balance and counteract each other’s effects.

Quality does matter — and your health is worth it. I’m available to speak with you about your Young Living products, and to answer questions that you may have.

9 Things To Do With Thieves

What should you do with Thieves?  That depends on what kind of Thieves we are talking about!

Young Living’s Thieves Essential Oil Blend is one that I always make sure I have on hand at home and in my purse, because you never know when you need to kill some germs :)

THIEVES BLEND

Young Living’s Thieves Essential Oil Blend has a very unique origin – there is a legend that 15th century French thieves, who were robbing the homes and bodies of dead and dying people affected by the plague in France, were not infected with the plague themselves.  When they were caught, they were given the option of receiving a more lenient sentence if they revealed their formula of oils, herbs and spices.  Research was conducted on this legend and Young Living’s Thieves Blend is the result.  The five ingredients in this amazing blend are powerful all by themselves, but in this combination offer even greater impact.

Never use water.  Repeated use can result in contact sensitization.

Some common ways to use Thieves Essential Oil Blend:

  1. As an air purifier, either in one Young Living’s diffusers, or from a glass spray bottle with 8-10 drops per 5-6 ounces of water.  Shake spray bottle before spraying each time.
  2. To prevent colds and flu, diffuse throughout home or office.
  3. To help with household germs, add Thieves to a glass spray bottle, about 8-10 drops per 5-6 ounces of water.  Shake spray bottle before each use.
  4. To help with headache, put one drop on tongue and hold to roof of mouth, or put 1 drop on thumb and rub on roof of mouth, whichever you prefer.
  5. To sanitize counter tops – apply a few drops to a clean, damp cloth and wipe countertops.
  6. To freshen up the laundry, add a few drops to a wet cloth and put in dryer with clothes.
  7. To help with public bathroom smells – add a drop to toilet bowl or in sink to freshen entire room.
  8. Add a few drops to a cotton ball and place in air vents – this is especially useful in hotel rooms when traveling.
  9. To help with gum issues, apply a few drops to a dry toothbrush and rub on gums daily.

COMPANION OILS: ImmuPower and Exodus II.

Weber State University out of Ogden, Utah, conducted studies in 1997 which showed the effectiveness of this Thieves Blend against airborne microorganisms.  One study revealing a 90% reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organism after diffusing Thieves for just 12 minutes; and a 99.3% reduction after diffusing Thieves for 20 minutes total.  Another study showed a 99.96% kill rate against the gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa after diffusing Thieves for just 12 minutes.

Da Lemons Solve Dilemmas

I’m sure we can all think of several dilemmas we face daily involving odors, skin issues, health, and household cleaning, but did you know there is one essential oil that can solve them all?

This article lists only 9 of the hundreds of uses of Young Living’s Lemon Essential Oil.  Let me tell you just a little bit about our lemon.

LEMON – Citrus Limon

Lemon essential oil has a pleasant, purifying citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon is great for removing household stains, disinfecting countertops, and even refreshing your laundry. It’s powerful germ fighting constituents match lemon’s pleasant aroma. Diffuse Lemon Oil to protect your home form airborne bacteria and put a drop in your drinking water for extra vitamin C, to keep your liver clean and boost your immune system – with just one drop!

I add a few drops to my water every day.  Make sure to only use glass or stainless steel when adding essential oils to any liquid or food you consume.  All of Young Living’s therapeutic grade essential oils will breakdown the petrochemicals in plastics, and then you will be consuming harmful chemicals from the plastic, so only use glass or stainless steel when adding oils for consumption.

Lemon Oil by Young Living

Lemon Oil by Young Living

Some interesting information about Young Living’s Lemon Essential Oil:

BOTANICAL FAMILY: Rutaceae (citrus)

PLANT ORIGIN: California, Italy

EXTRACTION METHOD: Cold pressed from rind.  It takes 3,000 lemons to produce 1 kilo of oil.

CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS: Limonene (59-73%); Gamma-Terpinene (6-12%); Beta-Pinene (7-16%); Alpha-Pinene (1.5-3%); Sabinene (1.5-3%)

ORAC: 660 μTE/100g (Oxygen radical absorbance capacity)

HISTORICAL DATA: Lemon has been used to fight food poisoning, malaria and typhoid epidemics, and scurvy (in fact, sources say that Christopher Columbus carried lemon seeds to America – probably just the leftovers from the fruit that was eaten during the trip).  Lemon has also been used to lower blood pressure and to help with liver problems, joint stiffness, and muscular aches and pains.

Research by Jean Valner, MD, showed that vaporized lemon oil can kill meningococcus bacteria in 15 minutes, typhoid bacilli in one hour, Staphylococcus aurrus in two hours, and Pneumococcus bacteria within three hours.  Even a 0.2% solution of lemon oil can kill diphtheria bacteria in 20 minutes and inactivate tuberculosis bacteria.  Lemon oil has been widely used in skin care to cleanse skin and reduce wrinkles and combat acne.  Lemon has shown to have antidepressant effects in research done by Komori, et al., 1995.

USES: Circulatory problems, vascular issues, weight balancing issues, urinary issues, anxiety, digestive issues and skin issues will all experience relief with the use of lemon.

SAFETY DATA: If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician prior to use. May be irritating to those with sensitive skin. Avoid eye contact. In case of accidental contact, put a few drops of any pure vegetable oil in the eye and call your doctor if necessary. Never use water.

APPLICATIONS: Dilute 1 part essential oil with 1 part Young Living’s V-6 Carrier Oil or other pure, organic, cold-pressed olive or coconut oil; (1) apply 2-4 drops on location, (2) apply on Vita Flex points, (3) inhale directly, (4) diffuse, or (5) take as dietary supplement as directed on label.

CAUTION: Avoid applying to skin that will be exposed to sunlight or UV light within 24 hours.

Some common ways to use Lemon oil:

  1. As an air freshener – put 4-6 drops per 5 oz water in a glass spray bottle
  2. To remove gum, oil, grease spots and crayon
  3. To help with vascular issues in legs – apply a few drops on veins and gentle spread lemon essential oil up legs
  4. To make fresh lemonade – add to water and add desired amount of sweetener
  5. To help with calluses, bunions, warts – apply directly on area of concern
  6. To prolong life of fresh fruit – add a few drops to a bowl full of water and let fruit soak for a few minutes
  7. To sanitize counter tops – apply a few drops to a clean, damp cloth and wipe countertops
  8. To help with acne and oily skin
  9. To help with public bathroom smells – add a drop to toilet bowl or in sink to freshen entire room

COMPANION OILS: Chamomile, eucalyptus, fennel, frankincense, geranium, juniper, peppermint, sandalwood, and ylang ylang.

FRAGRANCE INFLUENCE: It promotes clarity of thoughts and purpose with a fragrance that is invigorating, enhancing, and warming.  University researchers in Japan found that diffusing certain aromas in an office environment dramatically improved mental accuracy and concentration.  Diffused lemon resulted in 54 percent fewer errors, jasmine 33 percent fewer errors, and lavender 20 percent fewer errors; when aromas were diffused during test taking, scores increased by as much as 50 percent.  Many major hospital emergency rooms in the USA are diffusing lemon and other citrus oils because of its effect on mental accuracy and concentration.

A 1995 Mie University study found that citrus fragrances boosted immunity, induced relaxation and reduced depression.

I hope you have learned a bit more about lemon oil and will plan on trying some of these ways to use it in your home.  Order yours today.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

12 Ways to Use Frankincense Essential Oil

I am excited about Frankincense essential oil and all the health benefits it provides.  I’ve included a list of 12 ways that you can use it, but there are many more benefits that pure Frankincense essential oil can bring.

Frankincense Reduces Inflammation

Thanks to Young Living Essential Oils, Frankincense is now available in the West where the need for it has never been greater: Frankincense fights chronic inflammation, which an increasing number of medical researchers believe is the root cause of many diseases (i.e. heart disease, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer’s.

And the #1 cause of chronic inflammation? Stress….. Whether it’s mental, physical or emotional, intense chronic stress causes the adrenal glands to work overtime, leading to chronic inflammation.

Frankincense

D. Gary Young believes Frankincense has the potential to be the #1 antidote for chronic inflammation. At Young Living’s 2010 International Grand Convention, he stated that Frankincense’s chemical compounds have as much anti-inflammatory properties as steroids – without the side effects. In addition to its action on the physical body, Frankincense also calms the mind and emotions, reducing all sources of stress. Dr. Joseph Mercola, author of the #1 natural health website writes, “I have seen Boswella (frankincense) work well with my rheumatoid arthritis patients. In one study of 176 patients with rheumatic disorders, 122 participants had reduced stiffness and inflammation just two to four weeks after starting on the frankincense.

Mankind’s First Medicine
Essential Oils are often referred to as “Mankind’s First Medicine”. In fact, there are more than 200 references to aromatics, incense, and ointments throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Bible (36 of the 39 books of the Old Testament and 10 of the 27 books of the New Testament mention essential oils or the plants that produce them.) Frankincense is the most often essential oil mentioned in the bible. To listen to an interview about these Oils of the Ancient Scriptures, Click Here to Listen!

A note to readers: for best results, use only pure and natural products; referred to as therapeutic grade, like Young Living Essential Oils.  Most other essential oil brands contain synthetic ingredients and therefore their labels clearly state “For topical use only,” and sometimes they say “Do not apply topically”, whereas Young Living’s Essential Oils will state on the label “Dietary Supplement” if they can be taken internally.

There are several different species of Frankincense – Boswellia carterii (which Young Living calls Frankincense) and Boswellia sacra (which Young Living calls Sacred Frankincense).

SAFETY DATA: If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician prior to use. May be irritating to those with sensitive skin. Avoid eye contact. In case of accidental contact, put a few drops of any pure vegetable oil in the eye and call your doctor if necessary. Never use water.
