I am SUPER excited about the August Promotion with Young Living Essential Oils. It’s a FREE Essential 7 Kit.
I know, you have heard me say it many times, but the Essential 7 Kit is a great group of oils to have in your first aid kit. I can’t express enough how important a well-stocked first aid kit can be. Medicinal grade essential oils are powerful weapons in all kinds of emergencies.
Let me tell you an experience I had a couple years ago that emphasized this for me.
One day I was washing windows while I was home alone. Yea, I know. Probably not the best idea to be working with glass when I am alone in the house, especially when I live out in the sticks.
Anyway, the windows were the kind of storm windows that tip down and can be lifted off the track. For some reason I got careless and let go of the windowpane as it slid off the track. The whole thing broke over my head. Glass shattered everywhere. When I looked down at my arm, I saw a piece of glass sticking out of my arm. It was only about a quarter of an inch sticking out so I didn’t think anything of it so I pulled it out. Well, that shard of glass turned out to be over 2 inches long. When I pulled out the glass, the blood started spraying everywhere. It wasn’t long before it looked like a crime scene where someone had been slaughtered.
I panicked and ran to my oil shelf. I was so SCARED! My heart was pounding which was causing me to bleed more profusely. I knew I had to get myself calmed down if I was to stop the blood flow. I grabbed the Peace & Calming and with one hand trying to add pressure to the wound and the other I opened the bottle. I dumped too much on my chest, just to get some on and be able to smell it. Within seconds I could feel myself calming down.
Once I got the Peace & Calming on my body, I needed an oil that would help stop the blood flow. I knew helichrysum oil was the best oil for stopping bleeding but I was out of that one so reached for AromaLife, an oil blend with helichrysum in it. I had to remove the pressure from the wound to get the AromaLife on it. When removed the pressure, the blood was still gushing. I must have nicked a small vein. I opened the bottle of AromaLife and dropped several drops on the wound and on a cloth I was trying to use to add pressure.
By this time I tried to call my husband but he was fishing and had no cell signal so I called my brother Brian. Brian is a fireman and is trained in emergency medical services. He came to help and assess the situation but by the time he got to my house I had the bleeding stopped, thanks to Peace & Calming and AromaLife. Brian insisted I come with him and stay at his house that afternoon so he could monitor me since I had lost so much blood and I refused to go to the hospital. I mean, what is the point? I got the bleeding stopped and Brian dressed the wound for me.
I am so very grateful I had oils in my first aid kit. I hate to think what would have happened if I didn’t have my oil first aid kit. I was alone in the house and we live in a very rural area. With the rate of bleeding was doing, I knew I was on my own to get things under control. It would take too long to get help. I couldn’t drive myself to the hospital and keep pressure on the wound at the same time.
In the Essential 7 Kit, there are 2 oils that I would reach for to stop bleeding. PanAway would be my first choice because it has helichrysum in it. The other oil that is helpful to stop bleeding is lemon. Peace & Calming is also one of the oils in the Essential 7 Kit. Peace & Calming is a MUST in most any emergency. It helps you calm down so you can deal with whatever trauma is going on.
I have had MANY experiences with my essential oil first aid kit. I also carry a mini first aid kit in my purse. It is always with me wherever I go.
The oils of the Essential 7 Kit are great for first aid but there are also lots of other oils you can use.

I am SUPER excited about the August Promotion with Young Living Essential Oils. It’s a FREE Essential 7 Kit.
Now From Young Living Distillery in Oman
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia sacra) comes from the Boswellia sacra frankincense tree and is distilled at the Young Living distillery in Oman.
Item No: 3550 ~ 5 ml
Boswellia carteri is also very therapeutic. Boswellia frereana is highly fragrant and is usually used for burning and fragrances and has little or no therapeutic value. Boswellia frereana belongs in the perfume industry.
Gary Young has spent 25 years learning and traveling to the countries where frankincense is harvested. He has spent this time learning from the very best so he can know which species of frankincense and other oils are of the highest therapeutic quality.
You must know which # of quality frankincense resin is being used. Number 1 is fresh and is the highest quality. Numbers 2-4 is older and are NOT good for medical or therapeutic use.
Most essential oil companies are selling Boswellia frereana. This species is very fragrant but very low in therapeutic qualities.
The first cut of the Frankincense tree produces the white resin called “hojari” and was selected just for the kings and queens because it was the purest of the frankincense.
The lower grades of resin are a brownish color and have a lot of particles in them because of being on the tree and not harvested quickly. This lower grade of resin is what most companies use since is more available.
Notice the pictures above. The Boswellia frereana has dark spots in it. That is because it has sat for a long time in the elements and things get caught in the resin. It also is exposed to extreme heat conditions and loses its therapeutic potency.
The process of collecting frankincense happens two times a year – once in the spring (March to May) and then in the fall (September to October). To harvest the resin, you have to take a little axe and chop the hardened resin crystals off the branches – but there’s a process that comes in the week before that. To begin the process, you cut the bark of the frankincense tree and then it allows the liquid resin to ooze out onto the external part. Then, when it hits the oxygen, it starts to crystallize and harden. Naturally, the longer it is left on the tree, the longer it is present in the oxygen and the harder it gets. It takes about a week before you can actually come back and cut it off as a hardened resin crystal. So this is a week to two-week process from when you go in and you cut the tree to when you come back and collect the crystal resin. Then the crystal resin goes into the distillery where it is crushed into powder, put into an oil bath, and steam distilled to extract the oil from the crystal resin.
The longer the frankincense is left before harvesting, the lower quality it becomes. Most frankincense resin sold today is as much as 4 years old. The boswellic acid, polysaccharides and incensol have been flashed off with extreme heat, then followed by monsoon conditions.
Side Note: Frankincense needs to be distilled for 15 hours to get the incensol out. This constituent has a heavier molecule and it takes longer to get the incensol out. Most distillers cut off the distillation process too soon and don’t get all the healing properties out.
Young Living does not buy frankincense resin on the open market. They purchase from reputable suppliers that they have long term relationships with. Young Living has trusted partner distilleries for frankincense that are located in Spain (15 years – George Fernando), Nairobi, Kenya (Satqa Haq) and recently a distilling operation was established in Oman.
Gary recently built a Young Living distillery in Oman. Having a Young Living distillery in Oman guarantees no shortcuts are being taken on the quality of the frankincense resin received through the distilling process. In fact, Gary even hand picked the specific frankincense trees to source from!
Whenever any oils are not produced by Young Living’s own farms and distillers, Gary and a team trained by him travel to these distilleries to make sure that every step of the process, from growing, harvesting, distilling, meets Young Living standards. Companies who want to sell their oils to Young Living are surprised when company representatives show up because other companies take the vendor’s word for it instead of personally inspecting their operation.
Gary says, “If you don’t travel to the distillery yourself, you have no way of knowing if they are doing it right.”
No other company in the world can claim to be so intimately involved in their frankincense product. From “Seed to Seal,” you know that Young Living’s expertise begins at the source and extends to the final product.
No company in the world has better testing than Young Living. ”We don’t tell you it is a good oil, we prove it.” D. Gary Young.
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil – Gary Young has spent years researching the therapeutic and spiritual applications of frankincense essential oil. Sacred Frankincense is distilled from wild growth frankincense trees (Boswellia sacra) at the new Young Living distillery in Oman.
Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia sacra)
Item No: 3550 ~ 5 ml
You might call your office desk your “home away from home.” You spend hours at your computer. You make telephone calls, plan meetings, and sometimes even eat your lunch there when work piles up. Guess what else can be found at your desk? Germs. Lots of germs!
University of Arizona microbiologist Dr. Charles Gerba collected 328 samples in office buildings across America from cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, Tucson and San Francisco. He tested areas like the mouthpiece on phones, door handles, computer keyboards, desktops, and light switches. It is well known that cold and flu germs can survive on a surface for up to three days. What was surprising was where the most germs were found.
Dr. Gerba’s study showed that the average desk harbors 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat! The researchers found that bacteria levels continued to climb unless desks were wiped clean with a disinfectant.
The study was Funded by a grant from the Clorox Company and concluded that germs were higher in personal work areas than surfaces in common areas.
With the average workweek now 47.1 hours (according to the Families and Work Institute), employees need to get up to speed on office hygiene. The university-tested essential oil blend Thieves is the perfect weapon to use. Thieves Wipes and Spray are the “pollution solution” that can keep your desk, phone, and computer keyboard fresh and clean.
Wolfberries and NingXia Red are shown to support immune function. Studies show that wolfberries are effective at inhibiting inflammation and may induce an immune response. A landmark study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association concluded, “Wolfberry juice and its mixtures were shown to have immunomodulatory effects… by increasing splenic (spleen) microphages and splenic weight.” And:
NingXia Red is the only drink available that contains lemon and orange essential oils, which include the powerful antioxidant d-limonene. These oils alone have remarkable health-promoting benefits.
1 oz. of NingXia Red has the same amount of
antioxidant power as:
34 large onions
22 medium carrots
10.85 pounds of spinach
55.33 pounds of almonds
59 broccoli florets
73 medium strawberries
or 130 tomatoes
If you turn on the TV, listen to the news or surf the Internet, it is hard not to hear about the latest health scare: H1N1 virus, otherwise known as “Swine Flu”.
We really don’t need to be in a panic about Swine Flu but, let’s face it, there are always bacteria viruses and flu germs around. It is wise to know and use natural and safer ways to protect ourselves and our families. What a powerful tool for protecting ourselves from germs we have with therapeutic grade essential oils. Many essential oils repel bacteria, virus, microbes, infection, fungus, are antiseptic, and a host of other things.
Dr. Valnet points out that pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria do not become resistant to essential oils as they do to modern-day synthetic antibiotic drugs. He states, “Infectious microbes do not appear to become accustomed to the essential oils as they do to the many forms of treatment using antibiotics.” One reason virus and bacteria cannot mutate with the essential oils is because of the chemical constituents that make up essential oils. One essential oil can have anywhere from 200- 800 chemical constituents. It is impossible for a virus to mutate and adapt to that many chemical constituents. Drugs are made by isolating one or two constituents. A virus can easily mutate and adapt to the drug, making it useless.
Blends like Thieves and Exodus II (and the accompanying supplement Exodus) I always have on hand, along with other single oils – such as peppermint, clove, lemon,oregano, lavender, only to name a few. When illness strikes, you need to have them already on hand.
Bacteria are everywhere & some of it could be deadly. Common places that are thriving with bacteria: door knobs, elevator buttons, bathroom faucets, table tops, counter tops and the list goes on. This bacteria is spread in many ways. You pick it up whenever you touch anything.
During cold & flu season and we are exposed all kinds of flu viruses. Colds can be caused by over 100 different types of viral pathogens, and flu viruses continually mutate from year to year. This makes it difficult for you to develop immunity to these ailments.
Although many oils will protect, my number one favorite oil blend for protecting myself and my family . . .
THIEVES OIL BLEND (Order Code #3423)Thieves is a “must have” for everyone, especially during the cold and flu season. It was created from research about the thieves during the 16th century plague in England who rubbed oils all over their bodies to protect themselves while they were robbing the dead and dying. It is a proprietary blend of pure essential oils tested at Weber State University for its potent germ killing properties. Thieves was found to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria.
It’s very important, not only to rub oils on your body, because it increases the oxygen and increases the immune defense system, but to diffuse the oils in your home so the oils will kill aerosols, virus and bacteria. That’s where I really like to encourage people to look at how they can diffuse the oils in their homes and clear up the aerosolproblems that we deal with.”
During flu season, it is important to wash your hands often and refrain from touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Many of our colds and flus can be prevented if we just do the simple task of washing your hands. I don’t mean rinsing them with water either. This means scrubbing your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds. Add one of the Thieves products to this and you have powerful tools for preventing illness.
I also recommend a drop Thieves oil on the hands and rubbing your hands together.
Drink plenty of water – Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transport nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water.
Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink.
Healthy Diet – Of course maintaining a good healthy diet comprised of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and organic meats is another way to keep your body clean and in good working order!
