Spikenard and Petitgrain

I am so excited to share doTERRA's two new oils just announced at Convention! Wow I am tired, it has been a long three days of learning. BUT so much great information and I get to share with all of you! The theme at convention was ONE, One drop, One person, One community at a time. The oils are a gift and I am your gift, to help educate you on essential oils and their uses. I have an amazing team and we are all working hard to spread the word. doTERRA is an Amazing company and I am so blessed to be a part and I love the oils, the products, the company.

My life has changed and I am so grateful. My life is hard and I am sure yours is too! We all have our difficulties and hardships! But with faith, love and each other we can preserver with hope and have Joy, love and peace! We need to love one another, love heals everything. So be kind to people and send love to those who are hurting and if that is you, have faith and believe everything will work out.

Okay now lets get to the two new oils.

Spikenard

I know a lot of you have heard about this oil, but I never have and oh what a name, but the benefits are amazing. This blend comes from Nepal (the co-impacting doterra does is amazing). We have heard for years, when in doubt use Frankincense, now it is when in doubt use Frankincense or Spikenard. Both oils are diverse and are great to seal the deal with other oils and you can blend with all other essential oils.

Primary Benefits

  • Uplifting aroma
  • Promotes feelings of calmness and relaxation
  • Frequently used in aromatherapy and meditation for its grounding properties
  • Purifying to the skin

Aromatic Description

Woody, spicy, musty

Collection Method

Steam distillation

Plant Part

Roots

Main Constituents

Jatamansone

Description

Spikenard, a flowering plant of the Valerian family, is native to high altitudes in the sub-alpine and alpine regions of the Himalayan mountains. Spikenard essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of the plant and has been valued for centuries, traditionally used to anoint people of high honor and in the Ayurvedic health practices of India. Historically, Spikenard was used to uplift mood and promote relaxation. Spikenard promotes clean, healthy skin. Today, the oil is commonly used in perfumes and relaxing massage oils for its woody, musty scent. By sourcing Spikenard oil from Nepal, doTERRA is able to support much needed income streams for harvesters and partner distillers, particularly in the remote areas where it is harvested, as well as support needed rural community development projects through our Co-Impact Sourcing® initiatives.

Uses

  • Diffuse or apply one to two drops to back of neck or to temples to promote feeling of calmness and relaxation.
  • Create a personalized fragrance by combining Spikenard with Clove, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Myrrh, Wild Orange, Rose, and Vetiver.
  • Combine with a hydrating cream to soften and smooth skin.
  • Add one to two drops to your favorite cleanser or anti-aging product to promote healthy, glowing skin.

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.

Cautions

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.

And for all of you who don't like lavender, this oil is for you...
Petitgrain
This oil is very similar to Lavender, but it comes from the bitter orange tree. For all who don't like the smell of Lavender and would like to benefits, this oils is for you.
It is strong and I didn't think I liked it but then I diffused it and I really like it.

Primary Benefits

  • May help support healthy cardiovascular function*
  • May provide antioxidant support*
  • May support healthy immune function*
  • May help promote a restful sleep*

Aromatic Description

Fresh, floral, slightly herbaceous

Collection Method

Steam distillation

Plant Part

Leaf, twig

Main Constituents

Linalyl acetate, linalool, alpha-terpineol

Description

Petitgrain essential oil is derived from the bitter orange tree, which has a long history of use in traditional health practices. Historically, Petitgrain essential oil has been used for cleaning purposes and it has been used internally to support healthy immune system and nervous system function.* Emerging scientific evidence provides support for these traditional and other uses.
There are three essential oils derived from the bitter orange tree. Petitgrain is distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tree, Neroli essential oil is distilled from the blossoms, and Bitter Orange oil is produced by cold pressing the rinds of the fruits. Petitgrain is widely used in the perfume industry, giving body sprays, fragrances, lotions, and colognes a fresh, herbaceous note that is popular among both women and men.

By sourcing Petitgrain from Paraguay through our Co-Impact Sourcing®initiative, doTERRA is able to support needed rural community development projects and provide diversified income for small-scale farmers. This approach provides an economically viable alternative to clear-cutting land, dramatically helping to protect the remaining patches of the Atlantic Rainforest in eastern Paraguay.

Uses

  • Diffuse for a calming and relaxing aroma. Blends well with other citrus oils, Cassia, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Geranium, and Lemongrass.
  • Take internally to help ease feelings of tension, help calm the nervous system, and promote restful sleep.*
  • Before going to bed, add a few drops of Petitgrain along with Lavender or Bergamot to pillows and bedding for its aromatic benefits.
  • Add one to two drops to water or juice and drink to help support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and digestive systems.*

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.

Cautions

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
