"Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn."
Indeed the world is awakening from its long Winter's nap. Personally, when I wake from a deep slumber, I'd rather not rush around and think of complicated matters. As I peruse this month’s offerings from Young Living, it seems as though they knew this and gave us gifts that are quite simple to use.
Simple, yet profoundly powerful. Walk with me as I share these pure and simple healing tools.
At the 100PV tier, we receive Free Shipping, up to 70lbs. That is a lot of Ningxia Red, just thinking out loud here. I rather ship my Ningxia for free that pay an exorbitant amount on just shipping!
At the 190PV tier, we receive COPAIBA, 5ml and, LAVENDER, 15ml, ER (auto ship) only and CLARY SAGE, 5ml, ER Only.
At the 250PV tier, we receive RUTAVALA, 5ml
At the 300PV tier, we receive BLUE CYPRESS, 5ml
and IDAHO GRAND FIR, 5ml.
Finally, at the 400PV tier, we receive a stunning Roller Bottle with gorgeous Amethyst crystals nestled inside to increase your oil's frequency and potential.
We know Clary Sage is absolutely magical for female hormone support, no matter the age. And knowing this, men tend to shy away from it deeming it unnecessary. However, statistics show that men are challenged with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. What's this got to do with Clary Sage?
DID YOU KNOW
Improves Cardiovascular Health & Increases Circulation
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of clary sage oil are cardio-protective and lowers cholesterol naturally. The oil also decreases emotional stress and improves circulation — two very important factors for reducing cholesterol and supporting your cardiovascular system.
Clary sage opens the blood vessels and allows for increased blood circulation; it also naturally lowers blood pressure by relaxing the brain and arteries. This boosts the performance of the metabolic system by increasing the amount of oxygen that gets into the muscles and supporting organ function.
Fellas, and ladies with fellas, this oil rubbed alongside the arteries on the neck and over the adrenal glands will do wonders for your overall health.
Also, Clary sage curbs the growth and spread of bacterial and fungal infections; it can also stop the dangerous behavior of bacteria entering our body through water or food. These antibacterial properties protect the colon, intestines, urinary tract and excretory system.
This powerful oil is also antiseptic, so wounds will not become infected with germs when you apply this essential oil to them. This beneficial property will protect wounds and heal cuts, and it will help your body to heal quickly.
Seems this is a simple add to any and everyone's oil regime.

Speaking of Lavender
Bring a soothing supportive and serene feel to any and every situation.
Everyone knows the power of Lavender essential oil, the Swiss Army knife of oils that it is. Literally over 1000 uses, Lavender is a staple in many homes and offices. According to a study found on PubMed- “Lavender is traditionally alleged to have a variety of therapeutic and curative properties, ranging from inducing relaxation to treating parasitic infections, burns, insect bites, and spasm. There is growing evidence suggesting that lavender oil may be an effective medicament in treatment of several neurological disorders. Several animal and human investigations suggest anxiolytic, mood stabilizer, sedative, analgesic, and anticonvulsive and neuroprotective properties for lavender. These studies raised the possibility of revival of lavender therapeutic efficacy in neurological disorders.”
Well, I suppose that about covers it- soothing for the mind, body and soul.
Paired with Lemon and Peppermint in your diffuser, Lavender creates a sneeze free environment during the Spring and Fall months.
Next we have Copaiba, also at the 190PV tier.
Traditionally been used to support the body's natural response to irritation and support healthy digestion. In plainer terms, it's fabulous for inflammation. Using Copaiba will greatly reduce any inflammation in the body. Why? Because it assists the body in what it’s already designed to do- heal itself. Copaiba simply gives it a just start.
Copaiba is also a magnifier, meaning that when it is combined with any other essential oil it will magnify the benefits of that oil. It's a powerful way to increase the effectiveness of your essential oils. Also another beautiful oil for those sniffling months.
Emotional and Spiritual Side of Copaiba
If we are holding onto emotional wounds that no longer serve us, then we are projecting a victim consciousness into the future. This creates inner conflict for the soul and takes us away from our true purpose and our connection to our Creator.
Copaiba allows us to see our emotional wounds and offers assistance with emotional clearing while providing spiritual protection. For those who combat stress at work or home, copaiba offers security and grounding. It assists us with staying in the moment rather than projecting backwards or forward.
RUTAVALA- this gift doesn't come around very often, relish in it while you're able.
Rutavala offers a deep relaxation to the mind and body. It eases tension and relieves stress and best used just before bedtime. The aroma is slightly bitter with a hint of sweet Lavender. Again, simplicity is the theme for this month.
Emotional component- This oil can rebalance the energies of the body that have been held in deep tension. Especially where the energies have become very depleted because of extreme stress, or emotional upheaval or conflict. For those who are carrying grief, sorrow and regret, RutaVaLa can help release those emotions, balance the emotional bodies and help us become more fully present. Diffuse through the night in order to emotionally release as you sleep.
The official description of Blue Blue Cypress essential oil is that is supports healthy skin. Traditionally it has been used to be supportive of the body’s natural response to irritation, In other words- if you get hurt, you want this one in your corner! And yes, it is the perfect oil to create soft supple skin. Surprisingly, many people are not aware of this azure gem, or how versatile it is.
A few uses:
Add 2-3 drops of Blue Cypress along with Copaiba then dilute with V-6 or to soothe sore muscles or aches.
Add to your moisturizer or lotion for more hydrating benefits.
Soothe your skin while shaving by adding two drops of Blue Cypress to shaving cream, soap, or aftershave to help prevent razor burn.
