Here’s a tip just for men. Cedarwood oil gives skin and hair a fresh look without a feminine scent and leaves a clean, rich aroma. Add this versatile oil to an unscented facial balm or moisturizer for smoother-looking skin. Mix 3-4 drops with jojoba, or coconut oil and apply it to your scalp for extra moisturizer and shine. You’ll see healthy-looking hair and skin while using Cedarwood, and no need to worry about any harmful ingredients.
 
To end the day, simply apply a few drops of Cedarwood oil to the bottoms of your feet and big toes and feel free to diffuse this oil at bedtime for a pleasant night’s rest.

Day 7 – Purification

I apologize for sharing this later in the day, I was “on the road” yesterday and today.

Day 7 sees us reviewing Purification, a blend of several essential oils (see picture.) In addition to the suggestions on the picture, I have also used it on my skin with Coconut Oil, helps make my skin feel vibrant and happy.

Day 5 – Copaiba, An “Older” Oil

Here we are at day 5 of our “getting to know your starter kit challenge,” and so we take a look at Copaiba. It has been said that the Copaiba Tree has to be at least 30 years old to produce therapeutic grade oil? And the optimal years are between 30 and 50.

Copaiba supports the body’s natural response to irritation and I have also mixed it with a base oil to help with occasional muscle discomfort after exercise.

Historical Oil – Frankincense

It appears that people have been using certain essential oils for thousands of years, and today’s featured oil in our “getting to know your starter kit challenge” is none other than Frankincense.

Do you use Frankincense, and if so, how? I spent many years living under the hot and unforgiving Australian sun, and so I find it useful in helping deal with the results of that. One drop morning and night onto my “affected area” on my arm, it’s working wonders.

And know this, if you have not yet acquired a Young Living starter kit, let us know and we’ll be more than happy to hook you up.

Lavender Essential Oil

And as we move onto day 2 of this “getting to know your starter kit challenge,” we come across Lavender. We often refer to this versatile essential oil as our “Swiss Army Knife of essential oils, lots of different uses without all the attachments! Here are just a few uses, there are dozens more!

The Swiss Army Knife

As many people already know, a Swiss Army knife has many attachments and many uses.

We view our Young Living Lavender essential oil as the “Swiss Army Knife” of all essential oils, without the attachments! It can be used for a variety of purposes but I think my favorite use is to put a couple of drops on each wrist at bedtime, I always seem to sleep better.
Another favorite is to add to the bath just before bedtime, inhale the Lavender aroma and let it work its magic on your skin.
