By on November 8, 2017

Do you know what is great about the 11 Essential Oils must-haves? They are great because they SOLVE your daily discomforts and provide a natural environment to combat illnesses and fight off infections as well as keeping you and your family refreshed and calm throughout the day. You need them on daily basis and they are the recommended oils for great living. These are the compulsory oils in the Premium Essential Oils Starter Kit!! I am going to elaborate in detail here so that you know what you are getting exactly from the starter kit.

Here are the list of oils you will be getting: Lemongrass, Lemon, Purification, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Frankincense, R.C., Peppermint, Lavender, PanAway, Stress Away.

Let’s take a look at Figure 1

Lemongrass is the Serai, you know Pokok Serai the one that looks like tall grass but not grass. The aromatic stalk we used most commonly in rendang and tomyam. Extracted as essential oil, it invokes the calming and relaxing effect because of its sophisticated scent. A famous fashion designer, Anna Sui used this oil in one of her perfume collection. Imagine having this in your regime, natural, sophisticated scent that calms, cleans things and repels insects and more. Just a tiny dab on your skin, massage it and you will feel immediately invigorated. A drop in your floor cleaning water will make the house smelled heavenly.

Purification is your best bet to beat bad stench.  With a blend of Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Myrtle and Tea Tree, this concoction smells so fresh and bright. It is great for diffusing, freshens and refines, neutralizes mildew and disagreeable odors. Place few drops on cotton ball to deodorize closets, drawers and stinky shoes. It is also the perfect choice for insect bites. I would keep one on the go for me and kids.

Thieves is a super blend of Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon and Eucalyptus Radiata essential oils. This mix is called Thieves not because the oils steal stuffs or a “steal”. They are named after the infamous legendary 15th-century French thieves, a sneaky bunch, who wore those oils to protect themselves while they robbed the dead or the dying due to the Black Plague. Thieves Oil is a spicy mix and great for preventing infections and repelling bugs. You can use it to diffuse spicy aroma into your home while simultaneously cleaning the air.

Frankincense essential oil has a strong earthy and uplifting aroma. It is known to be used in meditation and spiritual engagement. However, don’t let this stigma fool you. Frankincense essential oil is great for your beauty regime. I have been using it for my eye and youthful skin. In fact, it has been used in many creams and lotions. It is also great for increasing focus and concentration during studies, yoga practice and praying.

Melaleuca alternifolia essential oil was a very popular essential oil once. Everything was about Melaleuca a.k.a Tea Tree Oil. The market was hyped about this refreshing scent and it was included in almost all cleansers, facial and body shampoo. Now, this special oil is available as pure therapeutic grade for your D.I.Y. home remedies, home cleaners and home skin care products. This is great because if you like the smell like I do, I want to dab it everywhere in my home and in my homemade perfume.

R.C. essential oil is especially minty, cooling and strong. It is a blend of Spruce, Cypress and three types of Eucalyptus Oils. Because of its minty and cool feel, it is great to keep away me and my kids’ morning sniffles. I also use it when I am going to grind during my workout. It is also great for an uplifting massage and when you are super exhausted. If you wake up feeling dazed and sleepy, take a tiny drop of this to get those eyes open wide.

Now, let’s observe Figure 2.

PanAway is a popular blend for tired and sore muscles. D. Gary Young, Young Living Founder, recommend this himself. Its marvelous effect is the speak of the town. When you exercise or lift heavy, and your body is sore the next day, look no further than this super essential oil blend. It is a unique combo of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint essential oils. Use it when your body feels a little sore on the neck or the back. You can feel the cooling sensation and the invigorating cooling aroma immediately and resolve those tired bones away. Yup, a definite must have for those who walks and runs up and down all day.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is the ultimate Swiss Army Knife of all essential oils. Its function is what gives  this essential oil this label. It is great for almost everything such as homemade perfumes, soaps, fresheners and beauty products. It is also a wonderful beginner oil. Whenever the whole family feel exhausted, I would infuse this scent to calms and invigorate the whole family. It is also great for bruise and cuts. When my kids bumped, slipped and fall during their sports practice, this oil comes in really handy.

Lemon Oil is a fantastic vibrant aromatic oil just like the color yellow of the lemon, all bright and happy. You guessed it, the oil is extracted, cold-pressed, from the skin of lemons. It can eliminate odors and freshens surfaces even your skin and hair. It will reduce the appearance of blemishes and give shine to your hair. Not only it is great for looking good, it is also great for feeling good. If you or your kids are feeling a bit under the weather, dab a tiny drop and run it up and down the spine and apply on sole.

Peppermint essential oil, cooling and leave a tingling sensation on the skin. Its explosive minty cooling scent goes all the way from your nose to your brain. Drop it on cotton ball and stuff in the car air vent on drives to school. Try a drop on your palm and inhale deeply, clears brain fog as well as stuffy nose. A perfect wake me up for afternoon slump too. And on a hot hot day, definitely helps to cool you down, a tingling sensation on your skin.

Stress Away is the first essential oil blend to contain the Lime essential oil and Vanilla extract. The unique mix gives a strong, tropical with citrus notes, and gentle aroma to de-stress. Stress Away oil also contains Copaiba, Lavender, Ocotea and Cedarwood. This is my perfect oil to unwind. If I feel a little anxious, this is also the remedy to keep me positive and move ahead.

Lavender essential oil – My Swiss Army Knife

By on March 15, 2016

I had a phase where I collected Swiss Army knife. Had it in various colors and sizes. Would always have one with me at all time. I still have it with my carkeys now. But now have my very own version of “Swiss Army Knife”, even my elder 2 bring it to school . No one should be without it!

Lavender essential oil is my new ‘ Swiss Army Knife’ because there are a multitude of uses for it. Lavender is universally regarded as the most versatile essential oil.Known for its antiseptic, antifungal, analgesic, antitumoral, anticonvulsant, sedative,anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties.

It has come in handy in various situation for me. I used it when Uzair fried chicken and had cooking oil merecik to his face, on Uwais who had leaf-cut (ya people usually get paper cut but he had leaf-cut… he was pulling some leaves from the ground to feed the goats), on harith’s hand who touched the motor exhaust (managed to avoid from any burnt blister to happen on all occasion that involve burnt, mashaa Allah), on the kids who often have falls, bruise, cuts and bumps (yup, somehow those 4 are just too common in my household ) . It helps stop bleeding of the cut and has healing properties (my kids often help prepare meals, cuts do happen). Few months ago, i had some guests over…was in the kitchen do prepare some drinks, and my friend confusedly said “munirah…your son is crying in the room..and screaming ‘ lavender, lavender, lavender’ “. I was like “ohh..die jatuh lah tu. asking for lavender nak apply” . Went to the room to check on him…true enough…uwais jatuh tegolek.

Useful for bedtime too. Recently, I helped put 3 babies to sleep at a wedding. After finish eating, helped to carry a baby so the mom can have her dinner, applied some lavender on the baby…and off to lalaland in 15 mins. Helped carry the next baby to allow another mom have her hands free to enjoy dinner…and again another baby fall asleep in 15 mins. And next thing I know, another mom passed me her baby, hihi. Third baby..took me less than 10mins J. It has a calming effect on the central nervous system , a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime. Oh, not to forget how useful it is for allergies. Also a great after sun relief. I also use it for my laundry.

Oh, and for the most common thingy among babies n kids, cold n flu.

Lots of other uses.

Lavender is so versatile…whenever it doubt, we use lavender!
