Essential oils Safety

Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible.

Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature’s pure essence.

Essential oils are potent gifts from nature that can often be more powerful than expected. In order to prevent misuse of these precious oils and to ensure that you enjoy their maximum benefit, Young Living Founder D. Gary Young, working with Director of Global Education and Health Sciences Dr. Lindsey Elmore and other product experts on her team, has created this helpful safety guide. Refer to it to learn the basics of essential oil use, how to handle skin sensitivity, and other valuable information.

I’M NEW TO ESSENTIAL OILS. HOW ARE THEY USED?

Young Living labels each bottle of Young Living essential oil with directions for how to use it; these directions vary based on your region. Please consult the product label for appropriate usage directions.

I SEE THE TERM “CARRIER OIL” USED IN SEVERAL PLACES. WHAT IS A CARRIER OIL, WHAT DOES IT DO, AND WHY SHOULD I USE IT?

A carrier oil is a vegetable oil—such as coconut oil, olive oil, or grapeseed oil—that can be used to dilute essential oils. Young Living’s V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex is an excellent carrier oil for all applications.

Carrier oils ensure that essential oils applied topically are comfortable to the skin. Dilution with a carrier oil does not dilute the effect of the essential oil. In fact, it prevents waste due to excessive application. Look for dilution ratios on Young Living essential oil bottles.

Vegetable shortening, butter, margarine, or petroleum derivatives (such as mineral oil, baby oil, and petroleum jelly) should never be used as carrier oils.

WHAT IS A HOT OIL?

“Hot oils” are oils that can cause a hot or warming sensation when applied to the skin. Examples of hot oils and blends include Cinnamon, Clove, Lemongrass, Oregano, Thyme, Exodus II™, and Thieves®. For some people, Peppermint’s cooling sensation can be too intense.

Young Living recommends using a patch test procedure prior to first use. To perform a patch test, apply 1–2 drops of essential oil to a patch of skin such as the forearm. Observe that area of skin over the course of 1–2 hours for any noticeable reaction; however, reactions occur usually within 5–10 minutes. If you experience a hot or burning sensation or develop a rash, add V-6 or another carrier oil to the affected area as often as needed.

WHAT IF I EXPERIENCE SKIN DISCOMFORT OR IRRITATION?

If discomfort or irritation occurs, stop using the essential oil and apply V-6 or another carrier oil to the affected area. If a rash occurs, this may be a sign of detoxification. Drink adequate water to encourage the release and removal of toxins in your body. Toxins present in petrochemical-based soaps and skin care products, detergents, and perfumes may trigger some of the detoxification reactions. Consider discontinuing these agents if a reaction occurs. Before using the essential oil again, perform a patch test (see above under “What is a “hot oil?”) and dilute with a carrier oil as needed.

Be aware that some documents suggest diluting the oil with water, but water actually drives oil into the skin and eyes. Never use water in an attempt to flush the oil off of the skin, as this may increase discomfort. If essential oil gets in your eye, flush with V-6 or another carrier oil as quickly as possible to alleviate any discomfort. If eye discomfort does not subside within 5 minutes, seek medical attention.

CAN ESSENTIAL OILS BE APPLIED TO SENSITIVE AREAS?

Avoid contacting sensitive areas such as eyes, ears, genitals, and mucous membranes with essential oils. If you choose to use the oil in any sensitive area, dilute 1 drop of the essential oil with 5–10 drops of V-6 or another carrier oil.

HOW OFTEN CAN ESSENTIAL OILS BE APPLIED? HOW MUCH DO I USE?

Follow the proper usage instructions printed on each essential oil label. Essential oils are very powerful, so start low and go slow. Excessive use of essential oils may increase the risk for adverse reactions. In most cases, 1–2 drops are adequate, and using more may waste product. Depending on the essential oil, you can gradually build up to 3–4 uses per day, if desired.

CAN ESSENTIAL OILS BE USED DURING PREGNANCY OR WHILE NURSING?

As with any medical condition, we strongly recommended that prior to using essential oils, you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained health care advisor who is experienced in essential oil usage. Some people choose to avoid overuse and excessive use of Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Sage (Salvia officinalis), Idaho Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare), Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis), Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), and Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), as well as the blends and supplements that contain these oils.

CAN ESSENTIAL OILS BE USED ON CHILDREN?

Many essential oils are appropriate for use on children but should be diluted with a carrier oil prior to use. Some Young Living products come prediluted with carrier oil, as indicated on product labels, and are intended for direct application on children. You can dilute 1–2 drops of essential oil such as SleepyIze™, RutaVaLa™, Gentle Baby™, and Peace & Calming® with a carrier oil and apply to the bottoms of the feet.

HOW DOES EXPOSURE TO SUN AFFECT ESSENTIAL OIL USE?

Some essential oils, especially citrus oils, contain natural molecules that react with sunlight (UV light) and cause a sensitivity reaction. Young Living labels the essential oils and oil blends that contain these compounds with a warning to avoid sun/UV light for 12–48 hours after applying. Always use caution when starting to use a new oil. To reduce the risk of sensitivity, use patch testing (see above under “What is a “hot oil?”), dilute, and apply the oil to skin that will not be exposed to sun/UV light. Young Living formulates its beauty and cosmetic products to remove sun-sensitizing agents to reduce the risk of sun sensitivity.

WHAT ABOUT THE USE OF ESSENTIAL OILS IF I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION? CAN ESSENTIAL OILS INTERACT WITH PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS?

If you have a disease or medical condition or are using a prescription medication, it is recommended that prior to using an essential oil, you consult with a health care advisor who has experience with essential oils. Seek the advice of the prescribing physician and a pharmacist about potential interactions between any medication and essential oils.

About me

ABOUT ME AND MY STORY IF YOUR NEW TO MY PROFILE PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ❤️ GRAB A COFFEE BECAUSE I WRITE ESSAYS LOL

My name is Luciana but most can’t pronounce it so I get called Lucy. I am Italian/Australian Buy was brought up the Italian way. I am 32 years old turning 33 this year yeah people think I’m 21 for some reason lol…I have 3 kids who are 3/10/12, the youngest is a girl and the other two are boys. I don’t have a job in the outside world meaning I don’t work out of home because I have a disability. I was born with Hydrocephalus which simply means water on the brain this requires me to have a tube in my head that goes to my stomach called a shunt. I have had it my entire life and my first brain surgery was at just 6 weeks old. I lived a semi normal life but found some difficultly with the learning aspect of things and still passed school and passed year 11 in high school. I have for some reason always been a over ambitious person where I feel I must complete something even if it’s hard and can’t do it I do my best to make it work. Over the years I went through a lot with domestic violence and other bad things this caused me to have diagnosed anxiety,depression,ptsd,borderline personality disorder. My life is literally a daily struggle and I find it hard to communicate with people and I’m hopeless Ar talking to people and making new friends. I heavily relie on my social media accounts for work and for making social media friends. I have been in the network marketing industry for over 7 years been with many companies over the years almost all of them but the longest has been Herbalife. I managed to get director Status with dōTERRA just by simply using only social media and advertising and worked hard to get to that status and gained over 17 people in my team. I have over 20 people in my nuskin team also. I didn’t get that way by cold messaging people I didn’t get that way by tagging people or lying in my posts. I got this way through pure honesty even if I was knocked back a lot I still mamnged to get that far. Along side of network marketing I run my own personal website business that is mainly full time, I offer zippay that is a buy now pay later system here in Australia and is very popular. I selling clothing,jewellery,makeup etc on my business website. Most nights I go to bed at 3-30 or 4am because I’m constantly working on my website I did not hire anyone to do it I did it all completely myself. On January 29th my shunt malfunctioned for the first since I had it put in 1985 and I needed emergency brain surgery unfortunately I’m still recovering but extremely lucky to be alive as I went to hospital very late and was already dying when I got there. I am thankful I’m here today 2 Braun surgeries a mum and business owner. I have had people tease me put me down my entire life even just last year too from adults but I keep moving and I keep succeeding in what I do to show people it can be done no matter how sick you are. I’m a living medical journal but I don’t let that stop me from trying to me successful in life. I’m determined and I’m a good person with. A good kind heart and I wouldn’t even hurt a fly. I want to prove to people that network marketing or your own business is very possible if you research and are dedicated and motivated. Thanks for reading my story I hope I have inspired some of you and that you now know me a bit better.

Cashew Nut Milk

Nut milk is an excellent dairy-free alternative to milk. Almost any nut can be made into milk, but cashew is possibly the easiest to make because there is no need to blanch them beforehand, and the nut has little-to-no pulp.

Make this recipe with a variety of essential oil flavours to provide different internal benefits. Some oils to try include Cardamom, Ginger, and Cassia.

Ingredients

• 1 cup raw cashews

• 4 cups filtered water

• 2 pitted dates (optional for added sweetness)

• Pinch of salt

• 1 drop Cinnamon Bark oil

Method

• Place nuts in a jar or container and cover with water.

• Cover container and refrigerate overnight.

• Drain and rinse nuts. Place in a blender along with 1 cup filtered water, a pinch of salt, and 1 drop of Cinnamon Bark oil. Blend on high speed for 2–3 minutes or until smooth.

• Add the remaining 3 cups of water and blend. If you want a thinner nut milk, add more water as desired. If you prefer a smoother, less gritty milk, you can strain it in a nut milk bag, letting the liquid drain through slowly, without squeezing, to strain out grit.

• Taste and add more Cinnamon Bark oil to taste, a toothpick at a time, if desired.

• Pour into jars and refrigerate for up to 1 week. Shake well before consuming as the mixture will naturally separate.

Tips: Soaking the cashews in water overnight makes for a creamier milk. If you want to speed up this recipe, you can also boil the cashews for 10 minutes instead and then follow the directions as written.

Blackberry Lavender Scones

These blackberry lavender scones are the perfect sweet treat for any occasion. Enjoy the taste and scent of the lavender glaze, infused with Lavender oil.

Ingredients

Scones

2½ cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, grated

1 egg

¾ cup buttermilk, plus extra for brushing

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 cup frozen blackberries

¾ cup white chocolate chips

Lavender Glaze

⅓ cup milk

2 tablespoons butter

1–2 drops Lavender essential oil

1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

1 Line baking sheets with baking paper and preheat oven to 200° C.

2 Combine flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add flour and grated butter.

3 Add the egg and buttermilk and mix—be careful not to overmix. Once all the ingredients have been combined, carefully fold in the blackberries and white chocolate chips.

4 Pat your dough into a 2.5cm thick square on a floured surface, then cut 5cm squares. Place these squares on your baking sheets about 5cm apart, and brush the tops with buttermilk.

5 Bake 15–18 minutes or until golden brown, rotating baking sheets halfway through.

6 To make the Lavender Glaze, add milk and butter to a small saucepan on medium heat. Cook until milk is steaming, not boiling, then remove from heat and stir in Lavender oil. Add powdered sugar until mixture is thin but not watery.

7 Allow scones to cool slightly, then drizzle with lavender glaze.

Tips: The floral taste of Lavender and blackberries is very appealing. Another yummy flavour to try with blackberry scones is Wild Orange, made by substituting Wild Orange oil for the Lavender in this recipe.

My herbalife story

MY REAL HERBALIFE STORY

First off I started herbalife in 2010 I joined as a distributor so I could get discounts on the products at this time I actually didn’t know much about network marketing and I was not intending to sell the products. I was always a small girl I’m short only 5 foot and my body gram has always been very small like size 6 to 8 and I was like this pretty much up until I had my second child Joshua. I never gained any weight after I had Lucas and the day I gave birth I could fit into my size 8 jeans without problems. When I had Joshua I thought the weight would go down after birth like Lucas but unfortunately I couldn’t fit into my jeans. This for me was a big deal as I have never in my life once been over weight or classed as big or fat. It was here where I knew I was going to have to do something about my weight because for one I just had my second child and the weight wouldn’t drop off. I looked into weight loss products and cane across herbalife somehow anyway I joined as a distributor for extra discounts only ever used the meal replacement shakes and I was having 3 shakes a day no food it was extremely hard the first 2 weeks I felt soooo hungry but I some how pushed through that hunger and looked forward to my shake. It was around the 2 or 3 week mark where my body was already used to having shakes that I could only have half a shake because a full shake would fil me up. I had no food or snacks in between but I did 30mins on the treadmill every single night. At this time I had weight to lose but not a large amount maybe only about 10kg that was it I was losing about 2 kegs a week from simply doing just all that. Herbalife saves my weight problem for sure but also my hunger issues too. It’s now been nearly 5 years since I actually stuck to the herbalife program but now 2018 iv put on more weight since Hayley my last child plus being on anti depressants that a side affect is weight gain plus thyroid issues that iv never had plus more on going medical issues. My anxiety depression definitely has got to me over the past 2 years from sudden deaths in the family to my brain surgery and other things. I developed a eating disorder by binge eating caused by my depression and now I’m slowly recovering from that and I no longer do this I also stopped my coke and Pepsi addiction which I had for several years and it vanished after surgery. I’m on a lot of pain killers now but I’m at that stage now where I’m ready to lose weight again I already lost weight since surgery and now that 6 kts dropped off it’s stuck so I’ll be starting my herbalife journey again unfortunately I have a lot more weight to lose this but iv stopped drinking Sosa on a regular basis started drinking tea just normal not green or anything and I think it will help herbalife helped me last time so I’ll be doing it again. Below

are photos from when I first started the herbalife program.
