If you’ve had a cup of chamomile or peppermint tea, you’ve used essential oils. It’s the chemical constituents in the chamomile flower that helps you relax and in the peppermint leaf that soothes the stomach. Simply, essential oils are the fragrant, highly concentrated fluid that results from distilling plant material (leaves, stems, flowers, rinds, etc.). About 30 times more concentrated than herbs, essential oils have been traditional remedies for millennia. Today, those who want a natural, chemical-free approach to feeling better and living healthier lives are rediscovering them.
Not all essential oils are created equal
Sarina recommends essential oils from Young Living®, the company that has set and met the very highest standards of quality in every step of the process…literally from the planting of the seed to the sealing of the essential oil in the bottle. Young Living has proven their commitment over 20 years so you can depend on their essential oils and supplements to support and enhance your health safely.
1. Therapeutic-grade – Please use only essential oils that have been distilled at low temperatures for precise periods of time, as that is the way to retain the delicate therapeutic constituents of the source plant.
2. Unadulterated - Be certain that the essential oils you use contain no synthetic ingredients or fillers. Young Living’s essential oil blends are combinations of therapeutic-grade essential oils—some are diluted with a carrier oil—which enhance the benefits of the oil.
Sarina never travels without her bottle of Thieves® essential oil blend. (Thousands agree, as Thieves is Young Living’s #1 selling essential oil.)
“I started using Thieves years ago for my sensitive gums and teeth - it works. I use it along with my morning health meditations, as Thieves supports the immune system and protects the body.”
Research at Weber State University founds that when diffused, Thieves had a 99.96% kill rate against airborne bacteria, including staphylococcus aureus. Thieves is a robust, spicy blend of lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils.
Sarina keeps a bottle of Lavender essential oil in her kitchen and in her bathroom.
“When I burn myself, I immediately apply several drops Lavender directly on it to soothe the skin, and every 15 minutes for the next hour. Lavender has been soothing burned skin for millennia.
Also, if I see evidence of a pimple breakout, I put one drop of Lavender essential oil on the spot twice a day. It works beautifully!”
Sarina uses Lemongrass essential oil (diluted with organic coconut oil) for massage.
“Many of my clients find muscle ache relief almost immediately. The aroma of Lemongrass is citrusy, fresh and uplifting, so there is a mind/body experience of lightness when Lemongrass is needed.”
Lemongrass supports the circulatory system, which may be why her clients feel relief after she applies it. Research was published in the Phytotherapy Research Journal regarding the powerful properties of topically-applied Lemongrass. It also has a score of 17,765 on the antioxidant ORAC scale.
Q. Why does Sarina drink a little Ningxia Red (ning-sha) juice almost every day?
A. Because Ningxia Red is made from the Ningxia wolfberry, which has unsurpassed levels of antioxidants. Those antioxidants protect the body by absorbing the bad free radicals that promote abnormal cellular activity and accelerate aging.
“I don’t know how they fit all those antioxidants into one little shot, but that’s what I do each morning to protect my body from the effects of tobacco smoke, toxins and pollutants. Do this with a gentle smile for a great start to your day.”
