Autism? Reconnect With Young Living

Young Living recently released the Reconnect Collection of oils that were specially formulated to help those on the Autism Spectrum reconnect with their surroundings. 

Though this kit was formulated to ease symptoms of autism, it can also be used for many other conditions such as ADHD, sensory issues, anxiety, low sense of self-worth, depression, sleep issues and more. Since essential oils bring balance to the body, they will will work where and how they are needed.

The Reconnect Kit contains 4 essential oil blends:

Reconnect - allows the mind to react positively and reconnect to surroundings
InTouch - calming, grounding, helps body integrate with environment
SleepIze - relaxes and calms the body and mind
GeneYus - helps with focus and ability to stay on task

Listen to this great interview of a mother of two children on the autism spectrum who has experienced “miraculous” results for her children after using Young Living essential oils!

Here’s another testimonial from someone who has just started using the oils in the Reconnect Kit:

Tera Ewing writes:

“This is my amazing 3 1/2 year old daughter Kylie! Kylie has Optic Nerve Hypoplasia/Septo-Optic Dysplasia, Autism, Global Developmental Delay, Diabetes Insipidus, Chronic Constipation, ADHD and extreme feeding issues.

Our Young Living journey began just three short months ago and yet our lives have changed dramatically forever. Although the oils we have tried so far have shown to be amazingly successful, NOTHING has come close to the effects from the Reconnect Kit.

I am extremely excited to announce that today July 10th, 2014 my beautiful daughter told me she loved me for the very first time (excluding when she repeats when I say I love you). She also surprise kissed me twice as well as her dad once only after two, yes, ONLY two days using the kit’s protocol.

As many parents of Autistic children know, it makes the person communicate emotions and perceive your expressions in different ways. I had lost belief that my child would ever spontaneously tell me “Mommy I love you!” Today that was made possible thanks to some truly amazing oil blends from Young Living. I can not put a price on these oils and their results. Even her father (who is quite the skeptic) asked me what I had done to our child!!! I can not wait to see all the wonderful other things this kit has in store for us! Words can not express how thankful I am to our founder/CEO D. Gary Young and his commitment to essential oil science. Because of his philosophy and guarantee that Young Living will only sell 100% pure, natural, uncut oils that maintain their vital therapeutic potency, parents like me are able to witness absolutely unthinkable results. I 100% recommend the Reconnect Kit to anyone on the spectrum. — feeling blessed.”

Why Use Essential Oils?

5589328582_1f2d3f7e59_zOne of the reasons I love using essential oils is they are so amazingly versatile!  One essential oil can have many different uses.

Their unique features are that they:

• Pass easily through our skin and cells membrane
• Diffuse through the entire body within half an hour
• Go directly to the brain through the olfactory bulb
• Affect our feelings and thoughts because smell is our most emotional sense
• Perform multiple functions because of their structural complexity

This is why one essential oil can do so many different things for you all at once–physically, emotionally, and mentally–with just a few drops in the air or on your skin.

Ways to Use Basil Essential Oil

Put several drops on location to relieve tired aching muscles or to relieve a muscle spasm.

To relieve tension and pain along the spine, use several drops on the muscles on each side of the spine and along the Vitaflex spinal points on the feet.

To relieve neck pain, blend 2 drops helichrysum, 10 drops wintergreen, 8 drops cypress, 15 drops basil, 4 drops peppermint, in 1 tsp V6 mixing oil. Apply several drops to neck area several times a day. Vitaflex at the base of the big toe.

Put several drops in the palm of the hand, rub hand together and breathe deeply to relieve nervous tension.

When diffused it helps to overcome anxiety.

Basil is the number one oil to stimulate, sharpen and aid in the restoration of the sense of smell.

Diffuse to increase mental clarity.

To help heal varicose veins and spider veins use 3-4 drops basil, 1 drop wintergreen, 1 drop cypress, 1 drop helichrysum – apply on vein and stoke gently towards the heart until oil is absorbed.

3 drops each of basil and Aroma Siez is helpful for varicose veins to gently rub above the vein towards the heart.

To improve circulation use one of the following blends, diluted in 1 tsp V6 oil and massaged on location 1-3 times a day:

  • Blend #1: 5 drops basil, 8 drops marjoram, 10 drops cypress, 3 drops peppermint
  • Blend #2: 3 drops basil, 4 drops cypress, 8 drops marjoram, 10 drops wintergreen

Place 1 or 2 drops of basil in the palm of the hand, rub hands together, apply to the brain stem and inhale deeply to relieve symptoms of mental fatigue.

Basil is especially relaxing to smooth muscles, those not subject to voluntary control, such as the heart and digestive system. Apply several drops topically on location.

For stress relief and relaxation, place a couple drops of basil & lavender between hands, cup over nose & mouth, breathe deeply.

Cold or Flu vs. Inner Defense & Thieves

It’s mid-January and throughout the States we are in the middle of a widespread influenza outbreak. At times like this, I am very grateful that I have access to therapeutic grade essential oils that are available through Young Living.  It is good to know that in case the flu strikes near home, I have resources that will, at the very least, shorten its duration, if not prevent it altogether.

Here are a few Young Living products I always have on hand, just in case. It is best to start taking these items as soon as possible after noticing the first symptoms of a cold or flu. Take them often and liberally. It beats the alternative.

INNER DEFENSE: Easy to use gel caps filled with Thieves oil blend, oregano, thyme, and lemongrass. I take 2 capsules at least twice a day for the first day or two of any symptoms. Usually that nips any illness in the bud. After that I will take 1 capsule 2 or 3 times a day.

THIEVES Oil Blend: Thieves is a “must have” for everyone, especially during the cold and flu season. It is a proprietary blend of pure essential oils tested at Weber State University for its potent germ killing properties. It’s very important, not only to rub oils on your body, because it increases the oxygen and increases the immune defense system, but to diffuse the oils in your home so the oils will kill airborne viruses and bacteria. Researchers at Weber State University found Thieves to have a 99.96 percent kill rate against airborne bacteria. Since the oils that comprise Thieves also have ANTIVIRAL properties, diffusing this oil blend is always on the agenda during cold & flu season, at least in MY home.

Be sure to use Thieves for prevention! It is absolutely essential that people who are in contact with the public use Thieves on the bottom of their feet daily. Doctors, teachers, clerks, children in day care or attending school need this protection.

Reminder: Most people have discovered that they can use Thieves, undiluted on their feet because the skin is thicker and less sensitive. It would be wise to dilute this blend with a good quality carrier oil if you are going to apply Thieves elsewhere, at least until you know how your skin reacts to “hot” oils. Any time an essential oil gets too “hot”, simply rub on a good quality vegetable or carrier oil to slow down the absorption of the essential oils.

Other essential oils I always keep on hand are RC, Raven, Exodus II, ImmuPower, oregano, eucalyptus radiata, peppermint, and clove.

NingXia Red is a great immune system booster and assists in liver detoxification. I make it a practice to drink 3 or 4 ounces a couple times a week all year long. If I am starting to feel bad, I drink it more often.

If you do not have any of these oils on hand, order some today! The cost to you will be less than missed wages and time wasted feeling bad.

Here’s a chart I found floating around in my files. Many thanks to whoever put this information together!

Genuine, Therapeutic-Grade

One thing that has changed my life for the BETTER is using genuine, therapeutic-grade essential oils. I use the word “genuine” because the term “therapeutic-grade” essential oils is thrown about loosely.

Many companies market their essential oils as therapeutic-grade, but the reality is they do not have a clue what quality their oils are or the conditions the plant material was grown in and distilled under. It is rare occasion when representatives of an oil company actually travel to where the oil is actually being distilled.

Oil brokers have gone so far as to inquire about the specific levels of oil constituents Young Living standards require. They are willing to supply oils with whatever levels of the constituents Young Living wants.  Hmm. Seems like they are mixing up a batch of perfume in a lab, doesn’t it?  When Young Living purchases essential oils from outside sources, they make sure the plants were grown in optimal conditions, distilled to Young Living’s high standards, and then held in quarantine until it is thoroughly tested to ensure its therapeutic quality.

Gary Young, the founder of Young Living Essential Oils, coined the term therapeutic-grade over 20 years ago. Since then, many essential oil companies have started to use the term to describe their essential oils, attempting to put their oils in the same class as Young Living’s.

From Seed to Seal, Young Living is directly involved with the whole process of creating essential oils. From choosing healthy seedlings and using organic growing practices, to harvesting at just the right time and distilling at the optimum temperatures, Young Living knows what they are doing when it comes to producing truly therapeutic quality essential oils.

As with any successful company, Young Living’s 20 year success story is founded on unswerving commitment to providing the highest grade essential oils on the market today.
