A roll-on proprietary blend made by Young Living, Deep Relief does exactly what the name says – it provides support for head and muscle tension. I use it when I get those excruciatingly horrible cramps in my legs. It stops them almost straight away. And a bonus is that I am left with no post-cramp tension. LOVE it! Don’t go anywhere without it.
What’s in the blend? Peppermint, Idaho Balsam Fir, Clove, Vetiver, Wintergreen, Lemon, Helichrysum, Copaiba, Palo Santo.
How to use it? It comes in a handy 10ml roll-on bottle. Simply roll once or twice on to the affected area and wait for it to work its magic. You won’t be waiting long!
Or you can roll it onto the palm of your hand and breathe it in. Just be careful to not get it into your eyes. If you do, wash it off with VEGETABLE OIL not water.
Here’s a few interesting facts about the concentration of Young Living’s essential oils –
1 x 15 ml bottle of lemon oil take 75 lemons.
There are 300 drops in a 15 ml bottle, so 1 drop of lemon oil is equal to 1/4 of a lemon.
1x 15ml bottle of Lavender takes 27 square feet of lavender plants
There are 300 drops in a 15 ml bottle so 1 drop of lavender oil is equal to .09ft² or 83cm² of plant material.
1 x 15ml Peppermint takes 1 pound (453 gm) of peppermint plant material. There are 300 drops in a 15 ml bottle so 1 drop of peppermint oil is equal to 0.05 oz or 1.5 gm of peppermint plant.
1 drop of peppermint oil is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea!
Takes 5000 tons of rose petals to get 1 gallon (3.7 kg) of rose oil. That only makes 757 x 5ml bottles.
Blue Lotus – (only found in Young Living Build your Dream blend). Takes 850,000 flowers to make 2,200lb (1kg of oil). This makes 200 x 5ml bottles
(** Note: that’s if we could buy Blue Lotus on its own, but there is not enough supply right now.)
Essential oils really are a powerhouse. They are super concentrated and hold all the memory and immune system of the plant. The best part is we get to benefit from this every time we use them.
So do keep that in mind when you are slathering yourself with oils. 1 drop goes a very long way!!
Do yourself a favour and only use 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil. Personally I prefer to use Young Living oils as I know I can trust the quality.
