Learning to Use Your Starter Kit (Part 4)

Welcome back! Let’s dive into the last three oils in the kit: DiGize, PanAway, and Stress Away.

DiGize

Digize

Enjoy your favorite meals and find additional comfort after one bite too many. DiGize® Vitality is formulated with oils to help support and cleanse your digestive system and supplement your daily wellness routine.* This proprietary combination of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Anise, Patchouli, and Lemongrass is popular for its powerful and effective properties. The Topical/Aromatic labeled DiGize is the perfect aromatic accompaniment to a large meal, the blend helps create a post-dinner calm when diffused. You can also apply it topically to add a degree of restorative comfort.

Below are some of our favorite ways to use this oil in your everyday life.

  • Support your digestive system! Use DiGize Vitality daily as a dietary supplement by adding 1–2 drops to a vegetarian gel capsule.
  • Make a soothing tea with powerful antioxidant properties by adding honey and DiGize Vitality to a steamy mug of water.*
  • Add 2 drops of DiGize Vitality and 1 drop of Peppermint Vitality to water for a stimulating beverage that also benefits your digestive system!
  • Take DiGize Vitality and Essentialzymes-4 before your meals to support wellness.*
  • Add a drop of DiGize Vitality under your tongue before or after a large heavy meal.
  • Add a drop of DiGize Vitality to your morning NingXia Red routine, to help support a healthy digestive system.
  • After a heavy meal, you can use DiGize for its comforting aroma by adding a drop straight into your belly button and rubbing the excess oil around your tummy.
  • The smell of DiGize is very distinct, so for those of you who may not enjoy the scent, applying it on the bottoms of your feet is another great and effective option.
  • It is uncommon to diffuse DiGize, but Digize does provide a calming scent. If you enjoy the scent, try combining a few drops of Digize with Peppermint in your diffuser. Play with different diffuser recipes to find one that you enjoy!

DiGize is a conversion oil for many people!

PanAway

PanAway

Turn your post-workout moans and groans into oohs and aahs with the cooling sensation of PanAway®.** This powerful blend synergistically combines Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint essential oils. Many sports creams try to synthetically mimic the same powerful constituents that are naturally found in PanAway essential oil blend—menthol and methyl salicylate—from pure Peppermint and Wintergreen. Why not get benefits directly from the source?!?

How can you use PanAway?

  • Treat tired muscles to a cool, tingling sensation after a long race or a day working in the yard by combining PanAway with carrier oil in a massage.
  • Give feet a break by applying diluted PanAway in a relaxing massage.
  • Fight stress and let PanAway’s cool, refreshing aroma lend a little support by applying a single drop to your temple.
  • Make your own post-workout cream by adding PanAway to your favorite DIY recipe, non-scented lotion, or coconut oil.
  • Apply it to your neck, scalp, and shoulders in the morning with V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex for an uplifting, refreshing aroma.
  • Dilute and apply to ankles, knees, shoulders, and joints as needed.

Remember, the oils in PanAway are very powerful, especially Wintergreen. This oil has a childproof cap because of the high amount of Methyl Salicylate from Wintergreen. Make sure to dilute with a carrier oil before application if you are new to essential oils or have sensitive skin, and use dilute heavily and use caution with small children.

Learning to Use Your Starter Kit (Part 3)

Welcome back! Let’s dive into four more of the oils: Frankincense, Thieves Vitality, Citrus Fresh, and Raven.

Frankincense

Frankincense

From enhancing spiritual and meditative practice to use in beauty routines, Frankincense essential oil is one of the most powerful essential oils and has a broad range of uses. The earthy, uplifting aroma is perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, Frankincense can help you maintain the appearance of radiant skin. Its ability to smooth the appearance of healthy skin explains why this oil is a key ingredient in our Boswellia Wrinkle Cream™.

Frankincense has been traded around the Middle East and Africa for more than 5,000 years. In many parts of the world it is considered a holy anointing oil and has been used for thousands of years in religious ceremonies. During ancient times, it was valued more than gold and only those with great wealth and abundance had access to it. Frankincense is mentioned in one of the oldest known scientific records, the Ebers Papyrus, dating from the 16th century B.C.

Frankincense contains the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene, limonene, sabinene, and beta caryophyllene. These constituents play a major role in blends like Brain Power, Awaken, Highest Potential, Forgiveness, and a popular personal care products.

Young Living also offers Frankincense Vitality essential oil. It is the same pure essential oil, but is labeled specifically for internal use. This immune-supporting superstar can help bolster your oral health and hygiene and supports your overall health and well-being.*

11 Ways to use Frankincense & Frankincense Vitality essential oil:

  • Elevate your beauty routine by adding Frankincense to your daily facial moisturizer for a radiant glow and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Turn a boring nighttime routine into a luxurious getaway with Frankincense essential oil. Play some soft music and take a momentary escape to soothe your skin and balance your spirit.
  • Pamper yourself—help reduce the appearance of uneven skin and blemishes by gently massaging anywhere skin needs a boost, aided by the lotion or carrier oil your skin loves most.
  • Create a safe and comforting environment by diffusing this oil’s empowering aroma, particularly when you are seeking purpose or engaged in prayer or meditation.
  • Add Frankincense to the back of your neck during yoga and meditation for calming aromatic properties that can support spirituality and inner strength.
  • Promote feelings of relaxation by diffusing during your nightly routine. Frankincense blends well with Cedarwood, Lavender, and Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood.
  • Add it to V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex and massage into muscles after a workout or prolonged activity.
  • Add a few drops to a Young Living Lavender Bath bomb and drop in a warm back for a spa-like experience.
  • Apply Frankincense to the back of your neck and temples while studying to create an uplifting and focused atmosphere.
  • Add 1-2 drop of Frankincense Vitality to your daily dose of Ningxia Red to enjoy the smooth flavor and support healthy immune function.
  • Add 1-2 drops of Frankincense Vitality to a vegetarian capsule daily to support your overall health. Try it combined with a drop of Copaiba Vitality and Lemon Vitality!

My favorite way to use Frankincense is to diffuse it when studying my Bible, meditating, journaling, or praying. I also add two drops to Vitamin E oil and massage that into my face before going to sleep. If I am short on funds, I will purchase Elemi, which some people call “The Poor Man’s Frankincense”.

Watch this video to learn more about this powerful oil.

 

Thieves Vitality
