Today’s post will also focus on an essential oil you should not be without, Young Living’s Panaway.
The main ingredients in Panaway are wintergreen, helichrysum, clove, and peppermint.
If you enjoy sports or outdoor activities, don’t leave home without this essential oil blend. Its aspirin-like properties work well for muscle and joint pain.
My mother told me that when she was a kid, she had a lot of knee pain, so my grandmother would rub wintergeen oil into the affected area to soothe the pain. It works because wintergeen contains a powerful natural substance called Methyl Salicylate. Commercial products will use a synthetic form of methyl salicylate in its products. They are based on the natural remedy; but the natural oils are lost, or the product contains very low amounts of the active ingredient.
Panaway contains Helichrysum oil, a natural anti-inflammatory, along with Clove oil known for relieving the pain of arthritis. Anti-inflammatory agents help remove excess fluid away from the site so the body can begin to heal.
Peppermint oil is another anti-inflammatory oil. It, too, acts to remove fluids. But rather than add chemicals or capsaicin, a chili pepper ingredient that adversely affects some users, Young Living uses the menthol of peppermint to provide the warming and cooling effects in this essential oil blend. The combination allows for direct application without a carrier oil. It will not burn the skin.
The next time you find you have over-done your routine and need the aid of a quality essential oil blend, grab the panaway from your Premium Starter kit. Its powerful ingredients will keep you invigorated instead of sitting on the sidelines.
Hello all, I decided to start a new series of ‘how to’ blogs based on essential oils and their everyday uses. Today I want to share how to make good use of the oils in the Premium Starter kit by Young Living. This kit comes with ten oils, plus a bonus oil and roller ball top.
This weekend starts spring break for many of us. I was packing the usual items yesterday in excitement of having some mental sanity for the next few days where I might actually forget what the calendar says. I like living without a watch or calendar. I knew this week would go as planned.
Last night, I discovered that I had forgotten my Young Living Thieves Aroma Brite toothpaste. Geez.
Rather than panic and run to the nearest drug store for a fluoride toothpaste off the shelf, I reached into my kit and pulled out the saving bottle of Thieves.
Two drops on my toothbrush was all I needed for clean teeth and fresh breath after driving for 4 hours to reach my destination. Thieves contains a combination of a few oils that benefit the immune system. Lemon, rosemary, and cinnamon are a few. Used daily on the skin or internally, one might stave off illnesses. When I begin to feel under the weather, I either put a drop or two in a capsule and ingest it, or rub it into my feet for relief.
I have often used Orange oil from YL on my teeth and added to my toothpaste. The flavor is amazing; and I have often said that working with orange oil is like the commercial product ‘GooGone’ – Orange oil takes off the sticky gooey stuff of old stickers or crayons on walls. YL orange oil contains only the oil from the peel. It works wonders on my teeth too. It’s a natural, non-toxic accompaniment to any healthy regime.
