The Essential 7™ is a collection of seven of Young Living’s premiere single oils and oil blends. YL’s Doug Corrigan and Karen Boren are guest bloggers for a series sharing information that will teach you the many ways the Essential 7 kit can enrich your life.
DOUG: Over the past few weeks, we have meshed a list of wellness demands with essential oils that really perform well. A lot of people were probably surprised to find out that the area where oils excel the most, where there’s the most scientific literature, is in the area of emotional support and that these oils profoundly affect our mood, help us to manage stress, and help us to manage other things like anxiety.
KAREN: One aspect of essential oils that is amazing to me is that many oils are calming and uplifting at the same time.
DOUG: You’ve mentioned that before, and it is one of the great things about essential oils. They can calm or lift up because they really have, as you termed it, an inner intelligence that seems to know what it is that your body needs and then provides it.
KAREN: Essential oils do work with the body and with problems of discomfort; they seem to calm the body and make the muscles more relaxed so that discomfort is alleviated.
DOUG: A really interesting tool that is circulating on distributor websites is called “101 Uses for Young Living’s Essential 7 Kit.” You’ll want to get your hands on this, so look for it on the Internet.
KAREN: Speaking of how to use essential oils, I was reading a book last night that has nothing to do with essential oils but discussed the fact that the bottoms of the feet have this incredible number of nerve endings. You may have wondered about putting essential oils on the bottoms of your feet, but that is a place where they just shoot right into the body and go to work.
DOUG: It’s important to realize that essential oils are a triple play. As you inhale their scent, there is an emotional response through the limbic system. Then as we apply them topically, they have a physical response, often a cooling or a warming sensation. And then there is a whole-body response that profoundly influences how our bodies work. The Essential 7—you can’t go wrong with them!
