What you need to know
Stress Away™ is the first product to contain the unique stress-relieving combination of Lime and Cedarwood, YLTG essential oils. With an aroma that is the perfect blend of tropical and citrus, Stress Away is uniquely relaxing and comforting. This natural solution was created to combat normal stresses that creep into everyday life, making it the perfect addition to your purse, car, or office.
Here’s a little about the oils in the blend:
Copaiba essential oil is an oleoresin just like frankincense and myrrh. This to me signifies that copaiba has properties reminiscent of the trees it came from in the sense that resins make up its life’s blood. Just like physical wounds, resin-based essential oils are known for their abilities to protect, seal, and heal both within and without.
Copaiba is also added to blends in order to ramp up the effectiveness of other essential oils in the blend.
Lime essential oil seems like an unassuming oil but don’t be fooled!
Vanilla absolute is another amazing oil for relaxing the body and mind.
Vanilla’s sedating properties also have a calming effect on the brain and nervous system which helps reduce stress.
Lavender essential oil is the classic stress relieving oil and for good reason! It has been found that when inhaled, lavender essential oil increases beta waves in the brain, thus indicating heightened relaxation.
The high amounts of sesquiterpenes found in cedarwood essential oil are known to stimulate the limbic part of the brain where we house our emotions and memory. It also stimulates the pineal gland which helps regulate melatonin levels and improves cognitive function.
Cedarwood is one of the best essential oils to use for stabilizing emotions and grounding one’s feelings.
Ocotea is a Young Living exclusive oil from our Ecuador farm. It’s an interesting essential oil with a spicy, somewhat cinnamon-like aroma that instills a sense of completeness, peace, and tranquility. In fact, in the Amazon, ocotea is known as “false-cinnamon” and was used to flavor sweets.
