40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils
40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils

Hey friends and aromatherapy enthusiasts! It’s Day 5 of the series 40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils.  If you’re just hopping on board, have a look at the prior posts at www.yogabirds.com. I admit it, I DID skip yesterday, but it was Sunday and I rested. And technically there are 47 days in Lent, so I have a few ‘off days’ for keeping my Lenten commitment.

Anywhoo… today I am highlighting Young Living’s Eucalyptus radiata oil.

Steam Room Bliss

Mondays are my day to workout. I teach yoga, indoor cycling (and starting this week, Pilates—YAY—another blog post on that soon to come) almost every day of the week. I cherish my personal workout times. Part of my ritual is going into the steam room afterwards. I love the high level of sweating and detoxifying the steam gives as well as the head clearing effects of breathing in the steam. Adding the therapeutic grade eucalyptus oil to the experience enhances it and takes it to a whole new level of physical head and nasal clarity and transformation. I can not believe how cleansed I feel and how well I can breathe afterwards! If you don’t have access to a steam room, you can also get the same effects of using the oil in a very steamy shower.

Several folks contacted me over the weekend inquiring where to purchase the oils. If you’re interested in buying oils please see the post from Day 4: How To Purchase Young Living Essential Oils. You can also reach out to me via email at melanie@yogabirds.com.

10 Ways To Use Purification Oil

Day 3: Purification Oil
Day 3: Purification Oil

Well it’s Friday and Day 3 of my Lenten blog series 40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils. If this is your first day tuning in please read the intro to the series.

Today I am highlighting one of my favorites, Purification Oil. Two years ago when I went to India, a friend gave me a small sample bottle of Purification Oil to take with me. We slept  in different and very foreign places every night for a month. I applied the oil on my temples before bed at night which gave me emotional balance in the midst of the intense (and wonderful) travel experience. It’s been a staple in my daily wellness regime ever since. Purification Oil is a blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Melaleuca, and Myrtle essential oils. This blend has been found to be especially helpful in neutralizing odors, as well as, being effective on mold and mildew. It is fantastic for cleansing and disinfecting the air. And for many other uses.

10 Ways I Use Purification Oil

  • As a deodorizing, and germ-fighting spritzer at the fitness center where I teach classes
  • On mosquito bites
  • To freshen up stinky sneakers, place a drop of Purification on a cotton ball and place inside of shoes
  • In a diffuser to freshen up at home
  • A few drops in the washing machine for super fresh laundry
  • In a spritzer to freshen up the dog beds
  • In a car diffuser to make my car rides extra pleasant
  • Inhale straight out of the bottle in the steam room at the gym
  • A few drops in a hot bath of a refreshing and detoxifying soak
  • To stay emotionally and physically balanced when traveling

Are you using Purification Oil in your daily home/health regime? Please share in the comments section below. Also, please ‘Like’ the Yoga Birds Facebook Page and Follow Yoga Birds on Twitter. I love being in touch with you all!

Until tomorrow….

Peace, Health, and Scented Bliss,

40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils

Peace, Health, and Scented Bliss

Today is Ash Wednesday and the start of the Lenten Season. This year I am attempting to write more consistently, actually daily.  If you follow my Yoga Birds blog you know that it’s pretty sporadic at best and varies in subjects that span mindful movement, travel, healthy eating, sewing and crafting, conscious living, and most recently my new fave, aromatherapy.

In my Lenten practice of daily writing I have decided to highlight aromatherapy, specifically talking about Young Living Essential Oils. I figure, since I use the oils daily in  hundreds of different ways, finding 4o things to ‘say’ or write about them should be …. easy? We shall see.

I mentioned in my last blog post about Thieves Oil eradicating a vicious invasion of the flu which was the impetus for my becoming a Young Living distributor last year. Since becoming a wholesale member and distributor I have had the pleasure of exploring many more of the oils and blends in the diffuser, spritzers, bath, laundry, vacuuming, dusting, and even cooking.

It is fascinating to me how just by awakening the sense of smell with certain fragrances correspondingly opens and enhances all of the other senses. I also feel better (like wayyyyyy better) about using non-toxic products to clean my home. I feel more awake and aware and ALIVE incorporating the oils into my life and my home. And my husband likes them too!

What these next 40 Days will look like on the blog (or at least this is the plan):

I will post several tips, ideas, and resources for using  oils, as well as, how to become a distributor and the benefits of being a distributor.  I am also going to share some of my must-have oils! It’s going to be a wonderful, consciously uplifing forty days. I hope you will join me! Please join in the conversation by leaving comments. Also, please ‘Like’ the Yoga Birds Facebook Page and Follow Yoga Birds on Twitter. I love being in touch with you all!
