It seems lately that DIY beauty recipes are popping up everywhere. I even have a natural beauty category on my blog… but I think it’s a really great thing. More and more people are learning that 1. it’s cheaper to make your own products, and 2. it’s much healthier. If you have jumped on this bandwagon, like myself, of natural beauty you may have discovered that essential oils play a huge part in making your own products. Even in homemade home cleaning supplies you will find that essential oils are used.

So why are these oils so great? How can they possibly be so good for you? I’ve complied a few facts to help shed some light on the essential oil world.

Have you read the Essential Oils Safety Guide? You might want to start there first.

Did you read it? OK… let’s get to the fun stuff…

A Natural Alternative
They’re natural, chemical-free alternatives to everything from traditional cosmetics to potentially toxic fragrances. So stop buying the synthetic crap. Nature knows what’s up!

Germ Killers
Essential oils are anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-macrobial, anti-parasitic, anti-infectious, and antiseptic. They may combat infectious disease by killing off viruses, bacteria or other pathogens. Some oils have been shown to destroy all tested viruses and bacteria. That’s why they are so great to use in homemade cleaning supply. You get all the kick ass germ killing without all the toxic chemicals.

They Absorb Quickly
Essential oils are capable of penetrating the cell membranes since they are lipid-soluble. It has been researched that essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes, and are then metabolized like other nutrients. Making them a quick, natural, non-toxic remedy for all sorts of aches, pains and mood enhancment.

Eases Pain
The aroma of an oil can be stimulating both psychologically and physically. Inhaling the scent of an essential oil/oils causes the release of neurotransmitters, including pain-reducing encephalin, pleasure-producing endorphins, relaxing serotonin, and stimulating noradrenaline. Step aside Advil… hellloooo essential oils.

Oils that Help Decreases Stress
Frankincense, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Lavender, Patchouli, Rose, Sandlewood, Roman Chamomile and Ylang Ylang.

Oils that Decreases the feelings of Depression
Lemon, Palo Santo, Orange, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Lavender, Patchouli, Rose, Sandlewood, Roman Chamomile and Ylang Ylang.

Oils that Help with Memory and Concentration
Basil, Cypress, Rosemary, Lemon, and Peppermint.

Oils that Stimulate Happiness and Peace
Bergamot, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Geranium, Lemon, Orange, Palo Santo, Rose, Sandlewood and Ylang Ylang.

We hope you can make it, and look forward to seeing you there!!!! If these dates don’t suit, please contact us so we can advise you of future dates, or organize a class especially for you.

Joy is an uplifting blend of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Jasmine, Rose, Roman Chamomile and more. It brings Joy to the heart, inspires romance and heart-connection, and helps release feelings of grief and negativity.

But first…..Why learn about Vibrational Essential Oils?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could capture the living essence of a plant into a bottle? This is what naturopath Gary Young, N.D., the founder of Young Living Essential Oils, has been able to achieve. This is why Young Living oils often “feel” different to other brands, and why we call them Vibrational Essential Oils. They have retained their life force because of the way that they have been produced. Unlike many other brands of essential oils, Gary sources many of his oils from his 5 organic herb farms worldwide, and he has studied with masters around the world to learn the fine art of distillation and analysis of essential oils. His quality control is unmatched, no chemicals are used anywhere on the farms or in the production process, and he uses low temperature, low pressure steam distillation to ensure that the complete, complex “fingerprint” of the oil is retained.

Gary’s oils have been used in research experiments into cancer, inflammation, ADD/ADHD, super-bugs, pre-and-post operative care, gall stones, and much more. There is even a clinic in Ecuador that uses the Young Living essential oils as their primary approach to all disease. If you are thinking essential oils are just a pretty smell – something you can use in an oil burner or in a relaxing massage – think again! Essential oils are the way of the future, able to impact in a profoundly “intelligent” way on body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Could Being Touched Unlock Your Money Limitations?
Is it possible that being touched is a missing link to changing your money situation?

One of the newest Access Consciousness® Body Processes could have a big effect on your money flows, says founder and best-selling author Gary Douglas.

The process is called “Holding Patterns.”  It pertains to “the many places where we hold patterns in our bodies against having the joy of our bodies.” These holding patterns include, among many other things, the rigidity around money that is stored in our bodies.  For some, it may even be impossible to change these without receiving the Holding Patterns process and related Access Consciousness® body work.

One of the main functions of money, Douglas discovered a few years ago, is to nurture and care for our bodies.  It’s our bodies that require and desire food, shelter, clothing, as well as the more decadent things like orgasmic food, awesome accommodations, and luxurious duds.  If we were not in bodies, would we require any of those things?  Would it even be possible to enjoy them?

“When you take these holding patterns out of your body, it changes your money situation,” continues Douglas.  “It might have something to do with the fact that if you’re holding onto things, you’re keeping rigidity in some point of view.  When that shifts and changes, a new point of view becomes available to you and a new possibility becomes available.”

With holding patterns in place, there are areas in your body where you can’t receive.  To have the abundance that is truly possible, “You’ve got to be able to receive everywhere.”

Douglas himself has noticed huge changes in his own body since he’s been receiving this hands-on process.  “There’s been a huge shift in the way my body can receive.  Feedback from radio shows (that he does weekly on Voiceamerica Radio, World Puja Network, and elsewhere) shows that people are getting Access Consciousness® in a different way now,” which he attributes to the clearing in his being that’s been achieved through receiving this hands-on body process on his body.

Douglas has also noticed his business partner and co-author, Dr. Dain Heer, having changes in his body. “He’s thinner and he’s willing to have even more fun, like getting up at 7 a.m. to jet ski in the rain.”

Like all Access Consciousness® body processes, the Holding Patterns process is non-invasive and extremely gentle.  No pressure or manipulation is used, and no prior medical or massage training is required to perform it.  In fact, many children can and do learn these processes and can perform them better than adults in many cases because they haven’t bought as many pre-conceptions and limitations about what can be changed.

The Holding Patterns Body Process is taught as an introductory class by more than 200 Body Process Facilitators worldwide.  It’s also included in the 3-day Body Class, to which everyone who’s completed through Foundation and Level 1 is invited.  Individual facilitators worldwide can also perform this for you as a session.  You can find facilitators near you by searching on the website for “Find a facilitator” in your country or state.
