Idaho Balsam Fir

Hello! I am Irene! With knowledge, there is empowerment, so here I am to share with you my oily experiences! For more of my posts, please check out my Facebook page!

It is like bringing the whole forest of fir trees to your little bottle. Though I am clueless as to how an actual fir tree smell like, taking a whiff of Balsam Fir gives me that feeling that I have always known the alpine forest.

With many oils out there, why do we need Balsam Fir?

Because it improves the efficiency of a healthy lung. We know the importance of deep breathing – to increase oxygen in our body for optimal wellness. My mom works in the library and she pushes trolleys of books and rushes around to arrange the books in order. The weight and the mountain of books to arrange leaves her exhausted and breathless at the end of every working day. Her TCM physician said she is just stressed. When we are rushing day to day, we do not breathe as deeply. After giving my mom Balsam Fir, it helps her to relax as well as supports her lungs to function more efficiently when she is burnt out at work.

When my boys recover from coughs, I will apply Balsam Fir to maintain their well-being by improving the breathing. On top of supporting the respiratory system, it soothes my over-worked muscles from dancing and chores. It has also eased my lower back ache due to Aunt Flow.

The refreshing woody scent is the reason why I always feel calm and grounded whenever I use on the boys or myself, just like being in nature.

Its scent is also the reason why it can uplift my spirits on a moody day.

As I inhale and write this, I am compelled to do deep breathing exercises just before I retire for the night. Goodnight!

I’m Out Of RC!!

Hello! I am Irene! With knowledge, there is empowerment, so here I am to share with you my oily experiences! For more of my posts, please check out my Facebook page!

What was the first oil that you were recommended for respiratory support? … RC, most likely! Every Young Living user loves it, I am sure. I love it! But, hey, believe it or not, in my 21 months of usage, I have only used 1 bottle of RC and a second bottle is hardly touched. And I am a heavy oil user when it relates to respiratory function.

It is common to hear “RC is the only one that helps”. When RC went out of of stock, there was disappointment and a mad rush to stock up or to get from any available source. RC becomes a coveted oil. Today, it is not uncommon to get a few bottles on standby.

RC is a great blend and so is every single and blend that Young Living has to offer. In my humble opinion, keep calm and choose alternatives for respiratory function.

Here are some oils I have used in place of RC very regularly on my boys which in turn, double up as oils for my self-care routine:

Basil

  • For boys: It supports immune and respiratory functions
  • For me: It helps me to detox.

Copaiba

  • For boys: It magnifies other oils and supports the throat function.
  • For me: I consume it daily in my water or Ningxia Red as a dietary supplement.

Cypress

  • For boys: It improves lung efficiency
  • For me: It promotes circulation and I use it nightly for dark eye circles.

Dorado Azul

  • For boys: It opens airways to support normal breathing.
  • For me: It heightens my spiritual awareness together with Hyssop for meditation.

Goldenrod

  • For boys: It supports throat function.
  • For me: It spice up the bedroom when needed. Ahem. 😉

Idaho Balsam Fir

  • For boys: It supports lung capacity.
  • For me: It soothes backache due to monthly women issues.

Ocotea

  • For boys: It is similar to Copaiba.
  • For me: It supports my digestive system and regulates normal blood sugar levels.

I am sure you know of many more oils that you can use to replace RC and for yourself too! Have a great evening!
