I hope you enjoyed the introduction to the Golden Touch I Kit and Thieves essential oil blend! I also hope that you had a great week and aren’t quite in need of any of these essential oils quite yet! Today I’ll share with you two more oils from the kit and how we like to use them in our home!
Oh and before I forget! Congratulations to my brother and his fianceé! Today is their wedding day and I’m honored to welcome her in as my sister and be a part of their special day! Pictures coming soon!
First off, RC!
R.C. is the next oil in this amazing kit! It is a blend of three species of Eucaplyptus (E. Globulus, E. Radiata, E. Citriodora) Cypress, Spruce, Myrtle, Marjoram, Pine and Lavender. It has a woodsy, refreshing aroma that is great for a homemade vapor-type rub. There are many ways to use this oil! You can diffuse it for a refreshing scent, mix a few drops with a carrier oil (like coconut, olive or V-6) and rub it on your chest. You can pre-dilute it in coconut oil to make a DIY vapor rub that is always available when you need it. You can use RC in a steam tent by adding a few drops and boiling water to a bowl, then placing your head over the bowl and covering your head with a towel in order to breathe in the steam. Did you know that Myrtle (one of the oils in this blend) is referenced in the Bible?! (Check out this reference!) When you get a chance, look up the health benefits of Eucalyptus for wintertime discomforts, I think you’ll be encouraged! RC is also great and invigorating to be used before a workout!
Raven is the next oil we’ll take a look at today. Raven is a great oil to combine with R.C. in your vapor rub! Let’s take a look at the individual oils that are used to make up this great blend! Ravintsara has a spicy, uplifting, camphorous scent, similar to that of Eucalyptus, but softer. It is held in high regard in Madagascan folk medicine, and can be used to support an overall sense of well-being, especially in the winter months. Wintergreen essential oil offers a subtle minty aroma that uplifts and refreshes. As an important ingredient in Ortho Ease and OrthoSprt massage oils, it is great when applied after a workout. Eucalyptus Radiata is useful for massage after activity and can be diffused for a stimulating and rejuvenating environment. This oil has a mildly pungent, sweet and fruity aroma and includes the naturally occurring constituents 1,8 cineole and eucalyptol. Lemon is one of the most classic and versatile flavors that you can keep in your culinary essential oils kit. It adds wonderful flavor and invigorates all the senses. Peppermint is famous for it’s fresh flavor. It promotes and enhances healthy intestinal function. It may also support your performance during exercise. As you can see from the uses of the single oils in this blend, Raven is a powerhouse essential oil blend that I definitely love to have around my home!
Hope you enjoy! Stay tuned next week for two more oils in the Golden Touch Kit: DiGize and Melrose!
