HINOKI ESSENTIAL OIL

Hinoki oil, or Japanese cypress, is derived from the wood of the Japanese hinoki tree—wood often used as a building material for temples, shrines, and palaces in Japan as well as in the plant art of bonsai. This special essential oil is known for its unique balsamic scent akin to bitter wood. It is a common household candle because of its soothing qualities and fresh aroma. However, Hinoki oil has a myriad of benefits far outranging the use of Hinoki candles and wood. Let’s take a look!

Hinoki Essential Oil on Autonomic Nervous System Activity and Mood States

 Hinoki essential oil is comprised of two primary chemical constituents known as a-pinene and delta-cadinene. Alpha-pinene is an aromatic compound found in many species of coniferous trees, notably the pine, and is one of the most naturally occurring terpenes in the world. It contains cerebral properties that may increase alertness and focus while also mitigating the adverse effects of stress. Hence, it lends Hinoki its relaxing characteristics.

Cadinene is the chemical name of a number of isomeric hydrocarbons that occur in a wide variety of essential oil producing plants. Delta-cadinene in particular can be found in essential oils like Ylang Ylang and Citronella. It is known to be soothing to the nervous system and thus adds to Hinoki’s sedative properties.

A study conducted by Natural Product Communications found that “…after inhaling Hinoki essential oil, systolic blood pressure, heart rate and [parasympathetic activity] decreased, whereas [sympathetic nervous activity] increased…” Furthermore, Hinoki essential oil “…stimulated a pleasant mood status.” NPC concluded that Hinoki essential oil could be a suitable agent for the development of regulators of sympathetic nervous system dysfunctions.

The Physiological Effects of Simply Touching Hinoki

Hinoki wood is so valued in Japan that, by law, the essential oil can only be extracted from trees that have fallen. Dwarf Hinoki trees are often used by bonsai artists. DoTERRA utilizes byproducts from the timber industry, overseen by Japan’s forest management programs, ensuring that no part of these prized trees go to waste.

And thank the Lord for that!

Studies show that simply walking on Hinoki makes people feel relaxed. One study recorded by the International Journal of Environmental Resource and Public Health found that upon contact with the soles of the feet, Hinoki wood decreased prefrontal cortex activity, increased parasympathetic nervous activity, and decreased sympathetic nervous activity. Participants also noted that they felt “comfortable”, “relaxed”, “natural”, “warm”, “uneven”, “dry”, and “soft” after touching Hinoki. The study concluded that “touching Hinoki with the soles of the feet induces physiological relaxation.”

How to Use Hinoki Essential Oil

  • Diffuse or apply topically onto feet, back, and/or chest before bedtime
  • Add two to three drops in your bathwater
  • Add four to five drops to your hardwood floor cleaner
  • Rub two drops into your palms and inhale deeply
  • Add to your skincare routine

Hinoki is January’s product of the month! Place a 125 PV loyalty order by January 15th and you’ll receive a 5 mL bottle of Hinoki for FREE! Don’t miss this special offer! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Clove: A DROP A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY

Did you know that Clove has the highest antioxidant capacity than any other oil? In fact, with its ORAC score of 1,078,700, it has a higher antioxidant rate than any fruit or vegetable! You can find this powerful essential oil in dental preparations, gum and candy, and even in DoTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Line as an important ingredient of xEO Mega®.

WHAT IS CLOVE AND HOW DO I USE IT?

Clove essential oil is steam distilled from the dried flower buds of the plant. It ranges from colorless to light yellow and has a strong, spicy aroma. The essential oil is most popular in dentistry because of its numbing effect—derived from the warm sensation—and its potent antioxidant properties that prevent infection. However, Clove can provide a myriad of other benefits as well.

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Researchers investigated the effect of Clove essential oil on fatty liver and dyslipidemia. The study concluded that Clove essential oil had a significant improvement in fatty liver and dyslipidemia with consequent expected protection from cardiovascular diseases and other complications of fatty liver. Add Clove to your daily supplement or take a daily dose of xEO Mega® to help promote cardiovascular wellness.

HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants are compounds that reduce oxidative stress which can contribute to the development of chronic diseases. Clove contains a chemical compound called eugenol that is known to lend Clove its antioxidant capacity and antiseptic properties. A test-tube study performed in 2010 by the Molecular Dynamics Section of the National Institutes of Health found that eugenol stopped oxidative damage caused by free radicals five times more effectively than vitamin E. Add to your daily supplement regimen to reduce oxidative damage either by adding four drops of Clove to a veggie capsule or take xEO Mega® in DoTERRA’s LLV line.

KEEPS YOU HEALTHY

Clove has antimicrobial properties that help stop the growth of microorganisms like bacteria. Another test-tube study performed in 2012 by the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, found that Clove can be effective at killing off three common types of bacteria. One of the three was E. Coli. Take Clove internally or indulge in DoTERRA’s OnGuard softgels (which contain Clove) to boost immune health and fight against nasty bacteria.

AND GUESS WHAT?

If you place a 125 PV Loyalty order by December 15th, you will receive a 15 mL of Clove for FREE! And while you’re at it, why don’t you purchase DoTERRA’s best-selling LLV line to get your daily dose of Clove and more? Don’t miss it! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

FRANKINCENSE: KING OF THE OILS

  1. Isaiah prophesied the coming of the Wise Men; “6 Vast caravans of camels will converge on you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. The people of Sheba will bring gold and frankincense and will come worshiping the LORD.” (Isaiah 60:6).
  2. The gifts to baby Jesus in Matthew 2:11; “11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.”
  3. It is the required incense on a grain offering: “15 The priest on duty will take from the grain offering a handful of the choice flour moistened with olive oil, together with all the frankincense. He will burn this representative portion on the altar as a pleasing aroma to the LORD.”

No wonder Frankincense is called King of the Oils! Not only is the oil considered to be a pleasing aroma to the Lord and a gift to the baby Jesus, but it was used to anoint the newborn sons of kings! Its renowned nickname seems ironic now, doesn’t it? However, Frankincense is more than an oil used for grain offerings and anointing. Let’s take a look.

FRANKINCENSE USES AND BENEFITS

IT’S AN ASTRINGENT – Frankincense is an astringent property that can strengthen and maintain the health of gums, hair roots, skin tone, muscles, intestines, and blood vessels. This property alone can protect from premature loss of teeth and hair. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and combat the loss of firmness in limbs associated with age. Apply to desired areas or take four drops via veggie capsule to optimize the benefits of this oil.

PROMOTES APOPTOSIS – According to a study conducted in 2016, Frankincense can promote healthy cell death—also known as apoptosis. This may reduce the risks of malignant growths or other unexpected mutations. Apply to affected areas and take four drops via veggie capsule to utilize Frankincense’s pro-apoptotic effects against cells.

KEEPS UTERUS HEALTHY – Another study conducted by Jane Buckle, ex-faculty at the University of Minnesota and author of Clinical Aromatherapy in Nursing, concluded that Frankincense is good for uterine health. Frankincense can regulate the production of the estrogen hormone, proper menstrual cycles, and other gynecologic conditions. Apply to affected areas and take four drops via veggie capsule to keep your reproductive and endocrine system healthy

DoTERRA’s Gift of Kings promotion is back! Place a 200 PV Loyalty order this December and receive a 15 mL of Frankincense for FREE! Don’t miss it! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Yellow Mandarin Essential Oil

Welcome the newest addition of the Mandarin family: Yellow Mandarin! Yellow Mandarin is cold pressed from the rind of a partially ripened Mandarin. It’s sisters, on the other hand, are derived from the ripe (red) and unripe (green) fruit. The aroma of Yellow Mandarin can be described as bright, zesty, and refreshing with a taste similar to lemon but with tangy-sweet top notes. Mandarins were introduced to Europe in the 1800s and brought from Italy to the United States in the 1840s.

WHAT CAN YELLOW MANDARIN DO?

First and foremost, Yellow Mandarin is an excellent candidate for helping prevent infections. It can protect wounds from contamination only because of its powerful antibacterial properties. Furthermore, Yellow Mandarin forms a protective covering on the wound and can promote the collection of blood platelets and leucocytes on the perturbed site, therefore blocking the intrusion of certain microbes. In a 2018 study recorded in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, the results concluded the oil itself has such potent bacterial and fungal properties that it proves to be an effective protection against infection.

To use Yellow Mandarin for wound protection and infection, apply two-to-three drops to site with a small amount of dilution or blend with other proactive essential oils like OnGuard, Oregano, or Melaleuca in a rollerball topped-off with a carrier oil.

Like it’s sibling, Lemon, Yellow Mandarin (and most citrus oils) can detoxify the body to a certain extent. These oils can purify the blood by helping to remove toxic substances from the body by means of excretion. That includes urine, fecal matter, and sweat. Also similar to its citrus brethren, Yellow Mandarin can improve digestion by stimulating the discharge of digestive juices and bile in the stomach. It also may increase the appetite.

Yellow Mandarin for digestive health is most useful when taken internally with a veggie capsule or in water. Keep in mind: if want to add citrus oil to water, be sure to use glass or stainless steel. You may also add two-to-three drops to the belly.

Lastly, I shouldn’t neglect to mention Yellow Mandarin’s relaxant properties. Its sedating effect works to relax and calm nervous afflictions and disturbances. In fact, the oil was used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for calming the mind, relaxing the body, and inducing sleepiness. A study conducted on the effectiveness of Mandarin essential oil on rodents concluded a significant decrease in expressions of anxiety.

 You may apply yellow Mandarin for emotional instances topically or aromatically. Use one-to-two drops of the oil on the back of your neck and over your heart. You can also diffuse three-to-four drops in a diffuser of your choice.

CAUTIONS

Like all citrus oils, Yellow Mandarin is photo-toxic. Avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying the product.

This is your last chance to get Yellow Mandarin! Place a 200 PV order this month and get Yellow Mandarin for FREE! Don’t miss it! We’d love to hear your testimonies.

Clementine Essential Oil

You participated in the Product of the Month promotion; you got a free Clementine. Now what the heck do you do with it? Great question! Let’s discuss.

WHAT IS CLEMENTINE?

Clementine is a special citrus oil because it’s a hybrid of mandarin orange and sweet orange. The oil derives from the rind of the fruit, citrus clementina, and is more tolerant of temperature variations than its siblings. Its aroma is similar to that of Wild Orange but with subtle Lemon notes. Like most citrus oils, Clementine has limonene and is renowned for its uplifting properties on the mood.

Clementine is a source of natural folate and may help brain function. This includes reducing feelings of stress and depression. Furthermore, folate content can protect unborn babies against neural tube defects. Also known as folic acid or vitamin B-9, folate helps synthesize DNA and aids in normal growth cells, especially in infants and children. A deficiency of folic acid in infants and toddlers is highly detrimental. However, Clementine can be used to normalize folic acid levels.

Being rich in folic acid, which is also an antioxidant, helps keep skin firm and healthy. Clementine oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that may also be helpful for skin care.

Citric acids like Clementine aids in the battle against acne-causing bacteria to keep skin clear of imperfections.

Lastly, Clementine has anti-mutagenic properties such as vitamin C and powerful bio-active molecules such as limonoids and quercetin. These compounds fight free radicals in our body, stabilize them and prevent them from causing oxidative damage to our cells. By fighting free radicals, these compounds can then eliminate toxins and reduce the burden from our vital organs.

HOW DO I USE IT?

You can add one-to-two drops of Clementine to your water in a stainless steel or glass cup. Also, you can apply Clementine directly depending on your desired use. However, for emotional health, I recommend diffusing three-to-four drops and applying over heart and on bottoms of feet.

CAUTIONS

Like all citrus oils, Clementine is photosensitive. Do not indulge in direct sunlight for twenty-four hours after applying.

Clementine is no longer available for this month. However, for those who participated in this month’s promotions, we’d love to hear you testimonies on Clementine!
