Learn about Citrus oils.
Young Living Citrus essential oils such as Lemon, Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit and Lime and the Citrus Fresh blend make wonderful additions to your diet and health. Did you know that citrus oils can help with liver detoxification, digestion, cleansing, act as room disinfectants, elevate your mood, help with weight loss, increase clarity of thought, help lower blood pressure and so much more.
“Uplift and Comfort with Citrus Fresh and Aroma Siez.”
As a massage therapist, I am always looking for the best essential oils to help with muscles in spasm. I personally have found a blend of oils called Aroma Siez to be very helpful. There was one day that I had a pain level of about 8 in my right shoulder. I had tried numerous essential oils to help calm this particular pain to no avail. I had sent my husband out to fill a prescription pain reliever that the doctor had ordered and while he was out, I remembered Aroma Siez. I applied this blend and within moments my pain was gone. Thank goodness because I did not have to take the pain relievers.
Aroma Siez – for Spasms and Torn Muscles
Gary D Young talks about Aroma Siez in the Young Living Training CD # 66 – Essential Oil Blends for Emotional health.
“…Aroma Seiz – a beautiful blend for spastic muscle, torn muscle, torn ligament, golfer’s arm, gym work-outs. Basil – methyl chavicol is the primary compound here equaling 38% over all in the total blend. Methyl chavicol is an antispasmodic agent, meaning that this will relax the muscle. Many of you have taken Basil oil or you have taken Aroma Siez and you have put it on a knot in a muscle and rubbed it in and worked it a little bit and felt it dissolve. Basil oil is the primary com-pound; it’s also high in linalol as well. Ocimum basilcum, your Basil sesquiterpenes again. Your oil is high in sesquiterpenes naturally, and remember, they are the ones that are going to be the oxygen transport mechanism for the body.
Phenols..methyl esters, 75% and 85%..there’s your methyl chavicol right there. Also, Basil contains some eugenol. Remember, you have Basil Linalol; you have Basil Chavicol; you have Basil Eugenol. There are four different Basils that are available on the market and we primarily use Basil Methyl Chavicol for that purpose right there. It’s very powerful as an anti-infectious agent as well as its primary compounds as an antispasmodic. This is for all types of muscle and tissue and is very effective there.
I wanted to share the following testimonial about Sweetie, from Janis McGrath.
I hope this email finds you all warm and healthy. I didn’t get a chance to send an email in February because I was dealing with an ongoing health issue with my cat, Sweetie. I want to share her story so your pets can benefit from Sweetie’s experience. Please pass this along to anyone you know with pets. Many of the ideas I discuss also apply to humans, especially the use of essential oils to combat infections.
I brought Sweetie and her two brothers home from a shelter in February 2006. My cat, at age 17, had died so I went to the shelter intending to come home with a new cat to love and share my life. The kittens were too young to be separated so I came home with three kittens to foster. After they received all their vaccinations and were spayed/neutered, the kittens could be formally adopted. They asked me which one I wanted to keep so, of course, I came home with all three. My previous two cats were spayed at six months, the standard recommendation 20 years ago. These current kittens were spayed/neutered at four months. I have heard of cats being spayed or neutered as early as eight weeks old. The shelters’ aim is to not have unplanned pregnancies that contribute to the ever growing population of homeless pets. The problem is that cats who are not sexually mature when they are spayed or neutered have a great chance of developing urinary tract infections as they mature. Fortunately, my two male cats have not had any issues, but Sweetie has been plagued with urinary tract infections from about age two and the infections occur more frequently and with greater severity as she grows older.
The first few times, her urinary tract infections (UTIs) responded to antibiotics or perhaps her body was able to fight the infection on its own. When she was five, her next UTI wouldn’t respond to three rounds of antibiotics. Each time, the infection would return within 8 hours of the last dose. The third round of antibiotics was a combination of two drugs – one to kill gram positive bacteria and the other to kill gram negative bacteria. (Thieves oil blend kills both gram positive and gram negative bacteria.) As the infection became apparent to me, Sweetie’s urinary tract would close up, she would start to bleed and look for places other than the litter box to urinate because she associated the pain with the litter box. After starting a course of antibiotics, it would take about 36 hours for the pain to lessen enough for her to lie down and sleep. Until then, Sweetie would wander the house, looking for pain relief.
Rose Essential Oil (Rosa damascena) is such a powerful aroma! One drop fills a room with its fragrance. Did you know that the frequency of Rose Oil has one of the highest frequencies?
One of my fondest memories was working with a client that had just lost her husband. Her daughter sent her to me for a Raindrop session. I had her blindly pick a few extra essential oils to be used during her session. She picked Rose Oil and a blend called Joy which has Rose oil in the blend. I knew that Rose oil helps heal emotional wounds and this was what she was experiencing with the loss of her mate. When she emerged from the room after the treatment, she looked at me and said “that was unlike any massage I have ever experienced. I feel so tranquil and peaceful.” I smiled because as always the essential oils had done an amazing job.
I read in one of my books that Rose oil helps the heart chakra to open when grief has caused it to close down.
Mailhebiau talked about Rose oil as a miracle of nature. He says it helps disperse worry, anxieties, sorrow and helps us experience all kinds of love: Human, Spiritual and Divine Love. (Battaglia, 2003, p. 256)
I love how Robbi Zeck describes Rose Oil. She says it takes us from being isolated to being loved. “…Since ancient times, the mystical Rose has been used as a symbol of the soul, evoking the essence of spiritual renaissance. This queen amongst flowers contains the most precious of all heavenly scents. The glorious Rose enfolds the soul within its own fragrant song, aligning it with the higher angelic realms…”
Robbi Zeck goes on to say that Rose oil helps to awaken the heart energy and causes you to seek a deeper meaning in your life. “…During the times when you feel unloved and isolated, contemplate if you are not being loving enough in your world. Often unhappy moments are really a mirror for us to learn a new way of being and invite a call to action to attract greater love into our lives…” (Zeck, 2008, p. 110)

The following is an email from one of my distributors that I wanted to share with you.
Janis McGrath writes “As one year draws to a close, a new year of endless possibilities, the promise of transformation, and the hope for change, big or small, begins. I guess this is the core of New Year’s resolutions. We look back and perhaps wish that something or everything will be different; will be better. Transformation was the theme for Young Living’s convention. Transformation doesn’t necessarily mean that your whole life has to or needs to change. The smallest of changes is a step towards the positive and one step leads to another. The recognition that change in your life is necessary and the desire to seek knowledge or take action to make that change a concrete reality is the first step.
Young Living’s January promotion allows you to get a Free Transformation Kit (1 $153.94 value) with a 239 PV order. The Transformation Kit contains 5ml bottles of Idaho Balsam Fir, Motivation, Transformation, Abundance, and Peppermint oil.
I wanted to share my story with you so you will understand that positive change is always possible even when others assure you that it is not. About ten years ago, I started feeling lower back pain that was keeping me from working as a test engineer on construction and mining equipment; that kept me from doing yard work; that kept me from exercising.

The number of cases of West Nile Virus is at the highest level since 1999. The pesticides used for mosquito control can be toxic to the environment and to people and their pets. Ironically, the symptoms of pesticide exposure are very much like the symptoms of West Nile Virus – compromised brain function and peripheral neuropathy. Thank goodness there are natural alternatives. Apply Young Living’s single essential oils like Citronella, Lemongrass (be sure to dilute), Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Lavender, or Cedarwood or oil blends like Purification or Thieves. You can use them on your pets too. Just put a drop or two in your hands, rub together and then run your hands over your pet. These same oils will repel fleas and ticks. You can make a natural flea collar by applying a few drops to a bandana and putting it around your pet’s neck or applying a couple drops to the nape of their neck. Written by Janice McGrath.

The following video is an interview of Dr. Len Horowitz by George Noory on Coast to Coast. Dr Horowitz’s advices not using toxic sprays but natural methods like lemongrass, Citronella, and Eucalyptus such as Janis McGrath talked about above.
Good news in the weight loss arena!
The conclusions of a study [Effects of citral, a naturally occurring antiadipogenic molecule, on an energy-intense diet model of obesity] conducted with Lemongrass show that citral leads to suppressed accumulation of abdominal fat. Citral is an aldehyde found in high levels in Lemongrass and Lemon Myrtle essential oils.
The study demonstrated that Lemongrass lowered body weight gain and abdominal fat significantly.
“…that the administration of citral leads to suppressed accumulation of abdominal fat, weight gain to a high-energy diet, hyperinsulinemia [excess levels of insulin circulating in the blood], and also improved glucose tolerance. Metabolic studies further suggest these are a result of increased energy production, although decreased lipid accumulation could also have a role. Considering that the consumption of high-fat and energy-intense diets have been implicated as reasons behind the current epidemic of diabetes and obesity, our findings suggest the possibility that citral could ameliorate these lifestyle diseases…” (Modak T, 2011 | Volume : 43 | Issue : 3 | Page : 300-305) Read More→
Should Obesity be considered an Epidemic?
I have been reading about the Obesity trend. It is rising at an alarming rate. Did you realize that more than 1/3 of the people in the United States are obese. Obesity is anyone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) over 30. The number of obese people is predicted to rise to almost half of the population in America by the year 2030. The numbers are rising for children also – 17% of children are considered obese.
What are some of the consequences of obesity? Read More→
