Imagine that every time you come home it feels like this, so you would go on holiday: you feel completely well, you breathe deeply, the tension and stress of the day falls away from you, a wonderful feeling of well-being is created in your whole body…
“Your home – your safe haven”
For many people it is the place where they spend most of their time. This is the place where you work, sleep, play, eat, relax and live. That is why it is so important that your home is also a healthy, fragrant, inspiring place.
I personally can no longer imagine a home without essential oils. How is that possible – a “home” where the atmosphere isn’t fragrant? I wouldn’t want that anymore. How about you?
In the last post here I told you about the big international convention that takes place every year in June in Salt Lake City, where thousands of people from all over the world come every year to network and exchange ideas. Just now the invitation for the European convention arrived – this year it is also online. So you can be there from the comfort of your own home.
Why do you need to be there too?
Well, first of all it is very inspiring to hear the many lectures and workshops about a free, self-determined, healthy life with essential oils. Then you have the opportunity to hear Mary speak. And you can only order the special “Convention Oils” if you are registered for the convention! And these are very special ones again this year, and here I would like to tell you about them…
Gary had his own little laboratory in the attic of his house. There he had all kinds of essential oils that he mixed, tried, tested… Mary still has many small bottles with his handwritten notes on them. He had hardly ever named them – but he had written a few words on the handmade label indicating his intentions for the particular blend.
When Gary showed us one of his new oil mixtures he always opened the bottle first and inhaled the scent. It was as if the oil molecules were talking to him and telling him what to tell us now…
Have you ever tried this? Sit down for this in peace. Take one of your essential oils, open the lid and just smell it. Close your eyes and inhale the scent. Observe what is rising within you: are there sensations? Thoughts? Words? Images?
Mary told us at one of her talks at the convention now that since Gary passed away, she has a lot of different feelings, ideas and thoughts coming up. She and Gary were so closely connected, often had so similar thoughts that she often does not know if these are her own thoughts, feelings and ideas or those of Gary:
“I often feel so inspired, and I know that sometimes the words that leave my mouth are actually his words.” – Mary Young
And so this new essential oil mixture was created. Mary saw the many little bottles of oil with Gary’s notes in them. And that’s when she got the idea for Gary’s Light.
“I was fascinated by the oils that came to my mind, especially when I noticed that most of them have a long history of traditional applications. It is fascinating how the different oils in this blend have such a large rainbow of different active ingredients together, which satisfy physical and emotional needs”. – Mary Young
The aroma of “Garys Light” is soft, smooth and elegant. This magical fragrance illuminates our mind for a deeper perception of truth and insight. Definitely something that can serve us all well in this day and age. Gary’s Light gives a soothing feeling of inner strength, which gives you the feeling of being grounded and protected. This fragrance will lift you up and your heart will fill with joy and peace.
Gary’s Light brings light, inspiration and hope to those people who desperately need it. It helps you to see how you can take care of yourself so that you are well, so that you can come into your power from which you can live and manifest your life mission.
Gary’s Light consists of:
Garys Light combines the sweet aroma of cinnamon and cistus with the balsamic scent of myrrh and the spicy freshness of lemongrass. Frankincense, Eucalyptus Radiata, Hyssop and Dorado Azul add a subtle – refreshing and uplifting note.
Gary’s Light is a blend of: cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), lemon grass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), myrrh (Commiphora myrrha), eucalyptus radiata (Eucalyptus radiata), sacred frankincense (Boswellia sacra), cistus (Cistus ladaniferus), dorado azul (Hyptis suaveolens), hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) and petitgrain (Citrus aurantium amara).
Gary’s Light purifies and elevates the atmosphere of the room. The naturally contained molecules Cinema-aldehydes, Alpha-pinenes, Eucalyptol and Geraniol help you to take your lifestyle to the next level, inspired by light and love for yourself, life and humanity.
Wear Garys Light as your personal perfume by applying it to your neck, behind your ears and on your wrists. Inhale the fragrance to clear your emotions, purify your energy, calm your mind and lead you into silence and harmonize your body.
You can combine a few drops with some V6 for an uplifting, rejuvenating massage. You can enjoy a few drops in a magical uplifting bath and simply create a light atmosphere in your home by adding a few drops to your diffuser.
A great addition to Gary’s Light are Thieves, Purification, R.C. and ImmuPower. And of course it’s the perfect complement to the official Convention Oil 2020, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
This essential oil blend was created to celebrate the global connection among us oil loving people from around the world. As the name suggests – one heart: we are all in contact and connected with each other in the heart, opening our hearts and dedicating ourselves to the higher good, the health of people.
Gary Young had a big heart for people who live in less fortunate circumstances than he did. It was also important to him to contribute to a strong, free and uplifting new generation that is the future of all of us.
The One Heart label was designed by Anita Perlaza, a young woman who was among the first graduates of the Young Living Academy in Ecuador and is now studying graphic design, because she firmly believes that “if we all connect, if we all work together and stick together, we can make a big difference.
Gary created the Young Living Academy several years ago to serve those who need help. One example is the Academy in Ecuador, right next to the Young Living Farm. There, the children of farm workers and local children receive a good education, regular hot meals, and medical care. One Heart is symbolic of just that: wherever you are, get involved and make each place a little better by being there.
One Heart has a wonderful, enchanting aroma, it smells invitingly sweet and refreshingly spicy.
The basis of One Heart is Valor, which brings forth feelings of self-confidence and harmony. The seductive sweetness of the Ecuadorian Ylang Ylang and the gently spicy Ocotea is mixed with it. The uplifting properties of lemon and lime, the inspiration of Northern Lights black spruce and the fresh energy of green mint round off the flavour.
The One Heart helps you to see the positive in life. It brings you into your center and helps you to connect with your inner spirituality. You will connect confidently with other people with an attitude of compassion, gentleness and service.
The One Heart unites your three centres brain, belly and heart in your heart. This mixture protects you from negativity and connects you to your higher self.
One Heart consists of: Lemon (Citrus limon), Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata), Northern Lights Black Spruce (Picea mariana), Lime (Citrus aurantifolia), Roman Chamomile, Jasmine (Jasminum officinale), Ocotea (Ocotea quixos), Green mint (Mentha spicata), black spruce (Picea marina), blue tansy (Tanacetum annum), camphor (Cinnamomum camphora), geranium (Pelargonium graveolens), frankincense (Boswellia carterii) and coconut oil (Caprylic/capric triglycerides) as carrier oil.
Cassia has a sweet, cinnamon aroma. Cassia is one of those essential oils which is already described in the Bible as a holy anointing oil and was a main ingredient in many temple mixtures:
(…) therefore God, your God, has anointed you with oil of joy like none of your companions. 9 Of myrrh, aloe and cassia thy garments are fragrant; (…) (Psalm 45:8)
Cassia was also a very important essential oil in ancient China and Egypt, and in Chinese tradition it is listed as one of the 50 fundamental medicinal plants.
The essential oil of Cassia is steam distilled from the bark of the Cinnamomum Cassia tree, and has very powerful cleansing properties. The scent of Cassia will chase away your worries and create a feeling of peace and tranquility within you. It has a grounding effect and inspires you to let go of old ballast.
Cassia also belongs to the cinnamon family, but has a very sweet scent compared to cinnamon bark and a much higher content of coumarin and trans-cinnamaldehyde.
In times of self-doubt you can wonderfully re-center yourself with Cassia, strengthen your inner connection with yourself and develop a positive self-perception.
Application: Cassia is one of the hottest essential oils, so it is important to dilute it well with a vegetable oil such as V6 or coconut oil, olive oil, wheat germ oil, etc. because otherwise it can burn the skin! I like to use Cassia on my skin and imagine how everything that blocks me or hurts me inside simply burns away.
In the room it evaporates, it cleans the room atmosphere, creates a sphere of peace and quiet and in your household cleaner it brings an extra freshness and purity kick to surfaces.
Did you know that Ecuadorian oregano is not an oregano in the classical sense, although it has many similarities to oregano in its fragrance and effects?
Ecuadorian oregano grows and is distilled at Young Living’s Finca Botanica Farm in Chongon, Ecuador. It’s a very powerful herb that can be found not only in homes across South America, where grandmothers and herbalists have been using it for centuries.
I remember when Gary Young first distilled this plant and then told us about it with bright, sparkling eyes: he was so excited!
At that time Gary found this bold, frugal herb that produces an amazing amount of essential oil rather by accident. Its scent immediately reminded Gary of oregano, but he found an unusually high amount of carvacrol, gamma terpinene and para-cymene.
Because Ecuadorian oregano is not actually oregano. It is only called so because its scent reminds of oregano. Its essential oil has cleansing properties and is ideal for massage and warm baths (for example, also in combination with Ortho Ease, Ortho Sport or Aroma Sieze). If you love the spicy scent of oregano, and the properties of peppermint, R.C. or Cool Azul, then Ecuadorian oregano is exactly your oil!
Applications: In the Raindrop application oregano can be replaced with the Ecuadorian oregano. It cleans the air of strong odors and musty energies when diffused. Especially in combination with R.C. or eucalyptus it helps you to a purifying, invigorating and energetic attitude to life.
The Ecuadorian oregano is also known under the names: Mexican Mint, Spanish Thyme, Indian Mint, French Thyme, Mexican Thyme, Cuban Oregano, and as 3-in-1 herb. Other Latin names for the same plant are Coleus amboinicus, Coleus aromaticus and Plectranthus aromaticus.
As you can see, a very mysterious herb with many faces…
“The magic and mysteries of essential oils
can’t be bought,
They belong to whoever discovers them,
who understands them and who knows how to enjoy them”.
On that note, I wish you a wonderful July. Be like a child, discover the wonders of life every day anew and keep them as a souvenir in your loving heart,
Eila Büche for Team ENJOY
