Norce, Deny, Winnie and I were talking in this group chat, and Norce asked, “If you could only have 3 oils for the rest of your life, which 3 oils would it be?” Boy, it got me really stuck for a while, I kept thinking about what were my favourite, and what do I bring out everyday with me. So here are my 3 oils!
The first one is Peppermint! I’m a very hot person, hot as in temperature, especially with the heat right now, urgh I wanna die. So Peppermint is great at cooling me down. Also, if I take a heavy lunch outside and I feel very lethargic and sleepy, Peppermint! And if I eat something wrong and I need the toilet, Peppermint! This is really my go-to oil, it has to be in my pouch ALL the time!
My second oil is Tranquil, I just love the smell. I like it for many many reasons. There’s Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Cedarwood in this blend and it’s my weapon when my kids don’t sleep. I just take it out, chase after them and roll wherever. If I roll it on their forehead, cool. If I roll it on their chest, cool. Everywhere is good. So when I appear with this oil, my kids will start running away from me. Hahah that’s why it’s wrapped up in masking tape, because my son, Sol, threw it across the room and the bottom shattered. The oil didn’t leak, so I just sealed it with masking tape for safety and continued to use.
Lavender and Roman Chamomile are also very supportive of skin health, so with little kids who are learning how to walk and running around, this is a very handy oil. Cedarwood is very supportive of brain health, it increases oxygen levels in the brain and also helps to keep me awake. If you want to be relaxed and yet focused, you can try Tranquil and even layer on more Lavender for added effect.
The last oil is actually Gratitude. If you know me, I talk about gratitude often, because I realised that when I’m grateful, I start to appreciate what I truly have, without taking them for granted. It also gets me to experience more of the same. So if I’m grateful for my income, I get to experience more of that, more abundance, more finances. If I’m grateful for my family, I notice that they are really healthy, my parents, my kids and my husband are all good, and I’m so grateful for that.
If you look at what’s inside Gratitude, all the oils are so powerful. There are oils that are supportive of respiratory health, like Balsam Fir, Frankincense and Myrrh. There is also Ylang Ylang, which is an oil that I didn’t like in the past, I thought it has a terrible smell, but I noticed that when I apply it over my heart, it helped to balance my emotions. I feel better, not as grumpy, and this is a bit TMI but Ylang Ylang also helps to increase sex drive! I’m not saying that I’m trying to increase your sex drive, but just letting you know!
Also, there’s this oil called Galbanum, that has a very low frequency of this oil, but once you combine it with Frankincense, the frequency changes dramatically. If you’re very scattered, you get tugged in different directions and you don’t know what to focus on, Galbanum is great for that, that’s why it’s in Gathering as well. It helps people to ground themselves and focus. So if you see a child that keeps scratching herself because she is very grumpy, you can try Gratitude.
The last thing I will say about Gratitude is that, there is an oil that Young Living does not produce anymore. That is Rosewood oil. Rosewood was actually going into extinction and knowing that it’s in Gratitude makes the blend even more precious to me.
So that’s it! My top 3 oils are Peppermint, Tranquil and Gratitude! What are yours?
