Visit the Ylang Ylang Farm in Ecuador

Today is Valentines Day, Happy Valentines Day to you!!! Being the day of love, I thought it would be fun to show you why I love Young Living. It’s a simple, but important reason, their dedication to providing us with the highest quality essential oils! The amount of thought and care that goes into each bottle we receive is amazing. It may seem a little nuts to be talking about love in regards to a company on Valentines Day. But the truth is, I LOVE YOUNG LIVING!!!! I love the freedom their products have given me to take control of our health and swap out all the everyday toxic products we had been using. If you’ve ever tried replacing toxic for natural products, while not spending a fortune. You will understand my great admiration for this company!

The truth is, the essential oil industry has very loose regulations, little to none to be exact. Therefore, knowing where your essential oils come from, and how the company is producing these oils from the seed that is planted all the way till it is bottled is worth knowing. Just like anything else you’re putting on or in your body you want to know exactly what you’re getting, right?! Young Living is completely transparent, anyone can visit their farms and take part in the harvesting.  But, that’s not quite realistic for all of us with our busy lives to just pick up and visit the farms before we decide on an essential oil company to trust.

So I thought it would be fun to take a behind the scenes tour. February is when the harvesting of Ylang Ylang begins. If you haven’t tried Ylang Ylang yet, its intoxicating, a truly floral aroma. I love to wear this as a perfume. It helps to elevate my mood and my husband always seems to take notice and finds me a little more attractive when I do. In this video you will get to see where the Ylang Ylang that ends up in your bottle of essential oil starts out, at the farm in Ecuador. How each flower to be distilled is chosen and more. Not all essential oil companies have controls set in place to ensure the standards that Young Living guarantees. OK, enough of me… just watch the video, before I give it all away! 🙂

Essential Oils For Romance

Click image to save to Pinterest!

I think we can all agree that scents play a strong role in attraction.  But did you know why? When inhaled essential oils travel to the olfactory system. The olfactory lobe of the brain is part of the limbic system, the same area that produces sexual desires. So while chocolates and flowers are great, essential oils are the gift that keep giving!

Here are my top picks.

For him:

Hong Kuai has a pleasing, woody fragrance that supports a deep sense of relaxation. It can be worn as a cologne or applied topically to the insides of forearms, thighs, or feet daily along with Idaho Blue Spruce to inspire romance.

Shutran is an empowering essential oil blend that is specially designed for men to boost feelings of masculinity and confidence. Its inspiring aroma appeals to both men and women, and although used like a cologne, Shutran does not contain any synthetic ingredients. Instead, it is formulated with pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils, including the exclusive-to-Young-Living Idaho Blue Spruce, a refreshing, invigorating essential oil to both body and mind.

Top Picks for Her:

Ylang Ylang  has a sweet, soft, flowery fragrance that has made it a romantic favorite. In Indonesia, the petals are often strewn across a marriage bed. Ylang Ylang is extremely effective in calming and bringing about a sense of relaxation, and it may help with releasing feelings of anger, tension, and nervous irritability. It has a long history in skin and hair care products, particularly in Asia, where it is used to promote luxuriant hair. You can wear it as a perfume, add it to your diffuser, or use as shown above with Idaho Blue Spruce.

Sensation™ essential oil is a wonderfully fragrant, powerfully romantic blend that is extremely uplifting and refreshing. It was formulated to enhance the enjoyment of special moments. 😉 This blend contains Coriander, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Jasmine, and Geranium. Trade in your chemical filled perfume for this alluring blend and let the good times roll!

For both of you!

Idaho Blue Spruce is an exclusive oil that is distilled directly from Young Living’s St. Maries farm in Idaho. This incredible oil contains high percentages of alpha-pinene and limonene, with a pleasing evergreen aroma that relaxes both mind and body. Beneficial to both men and women when applied as the graphic above states.

Valentines Day is right around the corner. Are you looking for an inexpensive, yet thoughtful gift for your lover? What about a massage? Who doesn’t love a massage!

Sensation Massage Oil leaves skin feeling smooth, silky, and youthful. The beautiful fragrance of Sensation may stimulate feelings of romance. You could also make your own massage oil using the essential oils of your choice combined with grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, or the carrier oil you prefer. I wouldn’t recommend using olive oil though, it has too strong of an aroma.

Light some candles, play soft music, dim the lights…you get the idea!

Happy Oiling,
