Dragon Time Essential Oil Blend: Before and After

Yup, it’s that good.

Dragon Time essential oil blend is PERFECT for PMS and/or “that time of the month.”  (Or “shark week” as we call it in our house.)  It combines fennel, clary sage, marjoram, lavender, blue yarrow and jasmine essential oils to help ease PMS symptoms and many discomforts of your period including cramps and even irregularity. It also helps balance emotions, alleviate mood swings and ease head tension associated with hormonal imbalance.

Let’s break down the oils that make up Dragon Time essential oil blend, shall we?

Clary sage supports the body’s production of scleral, which is important for balancing your hormones. Clary sage contains a natural form of sclareol, a phytoestrogen that mimics the function of estrogen. It can help with cramps, PMS, circulatory problems and hormone balancing.

Lavender is a natural relaxant which can calm anxious feelings, headaches and other PMS symptoms.

Jasmine can support you when you’re encountering muscle spasms, when you’re feeling blue, when you feel simultaneously nervous and exhausted, and it helps bring out the feminine attributes.

Fennel is cleansing and can also help with spasms/cramps.  It also has estrogen like activity.

Marjoram is calming to the nerves and can also relieve muscle spasms.  It not only helps with painful periods, but it can also help women during menopause.

Yarrow balances the hormones and supports the body’s natural ability to reduce inflammation.

This blend can be used topically (on the skin) or aromatically (such as in a diffuser.) I like to apply it on my lower abdomen with a bit of carrier oil (like coconut or almond oil) to help spread it around.  When cramping is especially intense it is great when combined with a warm compress over the abdomen or lower back.  Many of my friends like to use it on their inner and outer ankles or on the feet.

This is SUCH a great oil for people with uteruses. You can order yours directly from Young Living if you have an account. Wholesale accounts are best because you get them at 24% off the retail price, and you don’t have to order every month or have an autoship if you don’t want to.  (Important: Please do NOT order from a third party such as Ebay or Amazon as they are often times counterfeit oils!) The best way to become a member and get that wholesale price is to grab yourself a Premium Starter Kit, which you can do here: https://www.youngliving.com/vo/#/signup/start?sponsorid=3471989&enrollerid=3471989 To hear more about essential oils and why you’d want a kit, you can listen to an Essential Oils 101 Class on our website here.

If another Joyful Oiler sent you to this blog and you want them to be your sponsor/enroller, you can click on their photo on our Joyful Oiler Meet The Team page and find their sign up link that way.  Happy oiling!

 

Dragon Time: How to deal with “that time of the month” naturally

dragon-time-for-shark-week

Hello, friends!  Let’s talk about hormones and “that time of the month”, or “shark week” as we used to call it around here. 😉 We’re busy ladies and we don’t have time to deal with cramps or mood swings, right?  Dragon Time is my go to essential oil for a happy period.  It’s a great for PMS and when you’re surfing the crimson wave.

It helps me with cramping and it also helps to balance out my emotions so I don’t feel like biting peoples’ heads off.  It alleviates mood swings, and some of my girlfriends report that it also helps them with headaches caused by hormonal imbalance.  This blend combines clary sage, lavender, jasmine, fennel, marjoram and yarrow. My favorite way to use it is to put a little coconut oil into the palm of my hand (or whichever carrier oil I have handy), add just a drop of Dragon Time and then massage on to my lower abdomen as needed.  If you feel your cramps in your lower back, you can massage it there too, and if you really need a special treat you can add 2-4 drops into your bath water, or into some Epsom salt and then into your bath water.  Soooo good.

Clary sage support’s the body’s production of scleral, important for balancing hormones. It contains natural sclareol, a phytoestrogen that mimics estrogen function, helping with menstrual cramps, PMS, circulatory issues and hormone balancing.  The lavender helps you relax and the jasmine can help with muscle spasms, sad feelings, nervous exhaustion and bringing out your inner goddess. Fennel is also antispasmodic and provides great support to thr hormones.  Marjoram calms nerves and muscle spasms, and is also great for menopausal women and those with painful periods.  Yarrow is excellent for balancing the hormones.

Are you already using essential oils?  Which oils do you use to love yourself during that time of the month?  If you’re not already a Young Living member, you can use this link to sign up for a wholesale membership so you can pay 24% less for your Dragon Time.  As always, if you have any questions, just connect with me through any of my social media accounts below, and remember, periods don’t have to suck (as much.)  Happy Friday!

Me, super happy in the clary sage at the Young Living farm in Mona, Utah.

Young Living Essential Oil Promos September 2016

young-living-september-2016-promo

Hey friends!  I realize that there are only two days left in the month and that perhaps I should have written this post like 4 weeks ago, but here it is nonetheless.  I want to share Young Living’s promos for September 2016!

So for those of you who aren’t familiar with Young Living’s promos, each month Young Living generously gives away free essential oils and oil infused products as a thank you for hitting certain PV amounts. “PV” in this context just means “point value”, and in most cases $1=1 PV.  There are usually 3 tiers for the promo, 190 PV, 250 PV and 300 PV, so the more you buy, the more free product you get.

This month’s freebies are geared towards the active life.  Let’s break down the promos by PV amount, shall we?

When you order 190PV, you also get…  (freebie retail value = $106.25)

15mL Wintergreen
This oil is the key ingredient in the Cool Azul Pain Cream, Deep Relief and PanAway and is known for its cool, tingling sensation.  It’s great for the muscles after you’ve been lifting weights or lugging around heavy children.

5mL PanAway
Panaway is one of my favorites and one that I have to reorder often, since my husband and I use it nightly in coconut oil for massages. It also helps with occasional head pressure, everyday joint and muscle discomfort, and for cramps during “that time-of-the-month.”  (Ladies, you know what I’m talkin about.)  This is a must-have, which is why it comes standard in the Premium Starter Kit, but that little 5 ml won’t last you forever and it is one of the pricier oils, so the fact that it’s free this month is kind of amazing.

15mL Oregano (ER orders only)
Oregano is a fantastic support for the immune system.  I like to put Oregano Vitality in veggie capsules when I am feeling a little under the weather, and it is a must for my immune boosting roll-on blend.  Note: This one is only free if the order is done on your Essential Rewards (ER) order.  (Essential Rewards is a subscription service in which you earn points back on your orders which you can exchange for even more free product.)
When you order 250PV, you also get… (freebie retail value $137.50)

the 190PV promos, plus…
5mL Northern Lights Black Spruce
Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil comes from Young Living’s new Northern Lights farm in British Columbia, Canada. It has an amazingly rich, woodsy aroma that is invigorating but also grounding.  My kids think it smells like Christmas trees, and I would say that’s a fair assessment. So if you have a fake tree in your house and you miss that glorious smell, put this in your diffuser! It’s the best thing ever!
300PV (freebie retail value = $183.22)

You get the 250PV promos, plus…
Ortho Sport Massage Oil
I actually just tried this product for the first time a couple weeks ago.  My husband and I make our own massage oil from coconut oil and PanAway, which we’ve been fine with, and the only reason I ended up trying this was because I got it for free in this month’s promo.  Anyway, GUYS, this stuff is AMAZING.  This massage oil is packed with powerful oils including Wintergreen, Peppermint, Thyme, and Oregano to relieve muscles from a tough workout or even a sore back from sitting at a desk all day.  As well as our DIY PanAway coconut oil concoction works, I think we’ve just found a replacement.  The pump bottle is really convenient for massages, and it doesn’t feel terribly greasy on the skin.  Plus, a little goes a long way, so we’ve barely put it a dent in it even though we’ve been using it a ton!

So those are the September 2016 promos!  Additionally, if you are brand spankin new and haven’t ordered a Premium Starter Kit yet, this would be an excellent time to hop on the train because brand new wholesale members signing up this month will also receive a free bottle of Thieves laundry detergent with their kits.  That’s pretty awesome, right?!  Young Living isn’t just essential oils.  Young Living has tons of essential oil infused products that can replace the toxic things that may be lurking in your home currently.

september-2016-premium-starter-kit-bonus

Now, if you are brand new and wanting to grab your kit, you can still qualify for the above promos in addition to your free laundry detergent if you want by adding an additional 90, 150 or 200 PV to your Premium Starter Kit (PSK) order.  PSKs are worth 100 PV, and hitting those promos by replacing what you’re currently using with YL products is easy to do.  I get all of my toothpaste, face wash, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, body wash, hand soap, even my dietary supplements through Young Living.  It’s amazing stuff.  Do you have questions for me?  Please feel free to connect with me through any of my social media accounts, listed below, or give me a call if you want.  I could talk oils all day.  Thanks for reading, friends! Until next time…

Love, Crystal
