6 Additional Ways to Use Melrose Essential Oil Blend

  1. Melrose essential oil blend is excellent for foot and nail fungus. If you’ve not had success with Tea Tree (Melaleuca) you will be quite pleased with the results of Melrose.
  2. Apply a drop or two to broken skin or cuts to help disinfect, cleanse and heal skin.
  3. Apply a drop or two to a burn. For added benefit, spray skin with LavaDerm Cooling Mist spray to promote faster skin healing.
  4. Use a drop or two on skin rashes.
  5. Diffuse to help eliminate bad odors and remove germs from the air! Diffuse 15 minutes in a cold-air diffuser, such as the TheraPro Diffuser, 2-4 times a day.

Melrose contains these theapeutic-grade essential oils: Melaleuca (Melaleuca alternifolia), naouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), and clove (Syzygium aromaticum). The combination of essential oils in this blend are well-known for assisting in the healing of foot and nail fungus’, perhaps it is the synergistic effect of this blend of oils which explains why foot and nail fungus is cleared up quite quickly and why it is found to be more effective than Tea Tree alone.

Wrinkles and Skin Care

According to industry estimates, on any given day an average consumer may use as many as 25 different cosmetic and personal care products, including shampoo, nail polish, aftershave and lotion, containing more than 200 different chemical compounds.

A common assumption within the cosmetics industry is that 70% of what is applied to the skin is absorbed into the body. It is not surprising, then, that many dangerous chemicals have gotten into our bodies, our breast milk and our children. Some of these chemicals are linked to cancer, birth defects and other health problems that are on the rise in the human population. Continue reading

De-Stress the Stressful Home

Very few consider their homes to be a real source of stress. After all, the home is seen as a place of safety – a sanctuary and retreat. Our homes continue to be important places of retreat from the greater pressures of our work environment. Now more than ever, our homes need to be healthy centers of calm to support and regenerate us, so the idea that they may cause us stress may be a revelation.

The modern lifestyle of luxury, excess, and technological reliance that we have created and adapted to is beginning to be more widely linked to health issues. Many of today’s health issues are directly related to the toxins in cleaning products and personal care products we use daily. These are not only a source of ill health for us but for our kids, pets and the environment too. Now more than ever it’s important to consider what we can do daily to restore, preserve, and maintain good health and wellness.

Flowers and candles relax senses.

Flowers and candles relax senses.

Good health is not just the absence of disease, it’s about having vitality and feeling joyful. This can become a very real possibility when we rethink what we use, what we bring into our homes, and our diet, and make changes to home our environment.

Our ability to cope with everyday events is a reliable indicator of our physical, mental, and emotional health. Each of the 7 stressors below has a major impact on our health health and well-being. Although a single stressor may be handled individually without unbalancing the body too much, the cumulative effect of a few can be extremely harmful to our physical and mental well-being.

7 Stressors in Our Homes:

• Clutter and disorder

• Electromagnetic radiation

• Chemical pollution

• Environmental stress

• Geopathic stress

• Lifestyle stress

• Unhealthy diet

With the exception of “clutter and disorder” Young Living essential oils and Thieves Household Cleaner these can play a beneficial role in helping each of us to have happier, healthier lives.

I know I personally can see how switching changed and enhanced the quality of my life. There is just no way I would ever even think of going back to using the same kinds of products I used many years ago.

When we consider the positive effect essential oils and other Young Living products could have on our well-being we might find the quality of our life changing.

Easy Steps to De-Stress Your Home

1. Diffusing Young Living Essential Oils.

This is perhaps one of the easiest ways to change the vibe happening in a home. If there are kids running around screaming and tense adults on the verge of biting off someone’s head the simple act of smelling therapeutic-grade essential oils from a nebulizer diffuser can make a huge difference.

Young Living Oils I Recommend for Diffusing for a Relaxing Home

• Peace & Calming

• Joy

• Citrus Fresh

• Gentle Baby (great for kids and mom’s to be)

Tip: it is healthier to buy bees wax candles unscented and get your ‘scent’ from a cold-air nebulizer diffuser as you will get the healthy benefits of both this way. Candle makers NEVER use high quality essential oils because it would make their candles extremely expensive. Thus, always assume – all candles contain either the lowest quality essential oils that have been adulterated, or they are using perfume oils that are entirely from chemicals.

Meditation helps to calm.

Meditation: calming to body, mind & soul.

2. Rubbing Young Living Essential Oils on the Soles of the Feet.

Yup, it’s true… simply rubbing a couple of drops of Young Living oils on the soles of your feet is another excellent way to help de-stress and calm things down. It’s also a good way to help protect yourself from colds and flu, and get a restful nights sleep. Don’t under estimate the power of rubbing a couple drops of therapeutic-grade essential oils on the soles of your feet!

Young Living Oils I Recommend for Calming the Body, Mind and Soul

• Lavender and Orange (combine them, they’re excellent for stress and anxiety as demonstrated in this study)

• RutaVaLa (on the back of the neck and/or soles of the feet)

• Live with Passion

• Peace & Calming

• Tranquil Roll-On

3. Shifting the Negative Energy in Your Home.

As a Traditional Feng Shui practitioner and trained in Space Clearing, I love knowing that we each have the power to clean up any negative energy in our homes that are lingering from a tense debate or rotten luck. Here are two links to previous articles I wrote on how you can change that nasty energy and create an home atmosphere that will help make everyone in your home: My Feng Shui Tips for 2009, and Shifting the Energy in the Home – Space Clearing

There are many things that can be done to create a much better diet and I’ll just cover a few basics which include avoiding all processed foods and sugar substitutes. Replace those with locally grown fresh produce and grass-fed meats. Bringing the body into an alkaline state can be very helpful in alleviating many undesirable health conditions.

Cinnamon Oil Needs to Bark so it Can Heal Your Feet and Preserve Your Food

When most think of cinnamon they think of the cinnamon sticks in mugs of warm apple cider, or the sweet, fragrant, spicy aroma coming from the kitchen oven. Even though the scent of cinnamon may make your home smell amazing when prospective buyers come to your Open House and conger comfy feelings that may very well help you to make the sale – cinnamon has a very long history dating back to 2700 B.C. Cinnamon was not only used for centuries to flavor food but it also played the role as medicine, a perfume ingredient, burned as an aromatic incense, used for anointing, for embalming (it has powerful preservative qualities as you’ll discover), in the bath, and rubbed on beds with aromatic Myrrh and Sandalwood essential oils for it’s aphrodisiac qualities.


Even though we all are quite familiar with powdered cinnamon and cinnamon sticks, not many are aware that it is also an essential oil – it was the essential oil the ancient Egyptians used in embalming and in their daily lives. And cinnamon essential oil was a key ingredient in the “4 Thieves Vinegar” preventing the thieves from contracting the plague during the 15th century while they robbed the homes and bodies of the dead and dying. 


We grow up smelling, drinking and eating certain foods and rarely do we know the stories that our ancestors could share with us about how ‘they’ grew, harvested, processed and used a particular food, herb or spice. This article is just a small sampling of the lovely aromatic tree bark we might not know and may have taken for granted, not realizing just how powerful and useful this scented bark from a tree can be in our lives.  


Please note: Cinnamon Bark essential oil from Young Living Essential Oils is hundreds of times more potent than the dried cinnamon spice and one must use it properly for the best results. Why is it more potent… because you know how a herb drying room smells so wonderful, well… that’s the essential oil (a volatile oil, not a fatty, greasy oil) going into the air. It’s estimated that a dried herb only retains about 5-10% of its essential oil – which explains ‘why’ a dried herb/spice used for healing purposes can take months before you see any improvement. That’s not the case with a properly distilled therapeutic-grade essential oil. That means you only use a drop or two of a high quality essential oil at a time. For instance, one drop of Peppermint essential oil equals 28 cups of peppermint tea!


Even after 20 years of using essential oils, I am still amazed by how effectively and quickly (sometimes within 30 seconds depending on the problem) therapeutic-grade essential oils work – and I’m an herb lover and have used herbs for cooking, nutrition, and home remedies for 35 years. I’m impressed and will continue using my Young Living oils for the rest of my life, yes they are that  good. I still use, honor and love dried herbs, but when I need relief or healing I always turn to my Young Living oils – the differences are remarkable.


First… Your Cinnamon Oil MUST “Bark”


It’s important here to note that there is a vast difference between Cinnamon Bark and Cinnamon Leaf essential oils.


Cinnamon Leaf oil, although it does smell like Cinnamon Bark oil, does NOT contain any of the healing and beneficial properties. Easy to remember – your Cinnamon should always bark… “woof!”   Continue reading

Historical Use of Essential Oils

Essential oils are considered mankind’s first medicine and have been used around the world for centuries. Essential oils and other aromatics have been used in religious rituals, to treat various illnesses, and for other physical and spiritual needs.


Research dates the use of essential oils back to 4500 BC. Ancient Egyptians were the first to discover the potential of fragrance, and records demonstrate that oils and aromatics were used for treating illness and performing rituals and religious ceremonies in temples and pyramids. In fact, three oils that are still commonly used today—cedarwood, myrrh, and frankincense—were used in the embalming process.[1]

Young Living Essential Oils

Young Living Essential Oils: todays modern remedies from ancient times.

 According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics (the image to the right depicts essential oils being poured from an alabaster urn) and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians used oils thousand of years before the time of Christ. There are more than 188 references to oils in the Bible, and some precious oils like frankincense, myrrh, clove, rosemary, cassia, and cinnamon were used for the anointing and healing of the sick. Additionally, biblical prophets recognized the use of essential oils as protection against disease.[2]

The reintroduction of essential oils into modern medicine first began during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since that time essential oils have been used traditionally to kill harmful germs, as well as spiritually to balance mood, lift spirits, and dispel negative emotions. Get an idea of the variety of ways we can use Young Living oils in A to Z of Aromatherapy Essential Oils, ways that you cannot apply other brands of essential oils.


Fortunately, today we have Young Living Essential Oils that provide us with the best quality essential oils for a number of applications such as: aromatherapy, topical, inhalation, diffusing and as dietary supplements (ingesting and cooking). So whether you’re looking for relief from muscle discomfort, wound healing/First Aid, fighting germs and viruses, air freshening (not masking odors!), nutritional supplementation or flavoring in cooking, to use instead of toxic dryer sheets, as an aromatic bath or foot soak, to get rid of those pesky tiny ants, or to use as an all natural perfume – you have access to the purest essential oils available to date. Natural plant remedies that our bodies have evolved with over thousands of years. Why choose Young Living Essential Oils?

Using Essential Oils for Emotional Health and Wellness

The natural properties found in essential oils produce a soothing, uplifting effect on the mind and emotions. When an essential oil containing the optimum level of therapeutic constituents, such as Young Living Essential Oils, is diffused or applied topically, the result fosters a sense of emotional balance and well-being.


When the aroma of essential oils is inhaled, the scent travels to the reticular system of the brain stem where emotions and memories are connected. This enables essential oils to improve emotional wellness in many ways. Those haunted by negative memories can use a cleansing blend, and in times of stress or mental fatigue a rejuvenating oil can remove emotional stressors and leave you feeing mentally invigorated. Other essential oils increase feelings of courage and determination when faced with life’s many challenges.

Essential Oils for Improved Emotional Wellness 

Regardless of your emotional health, the therapeutic properties harnessed in Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ (YLTG) oils can help you improve or regain an optimal state of emotional wellness.


When we encounter an emotionally charged situation, instead of being overwhelmed by it, we can diffuse essential oils, put them in our bath, or wear them as cologne. The aromatic molecules will absorb into the bloodstream from the nasal cavity to the limbic system. They will activate the amygdala (the memory center for fear and trauma) and sedate and relax the sympathetic/para-sympathetic system. The oils help support the body in minimizing the acid that is created so that it does not initiate a reaction with the transcript enzyme.

Because essential oils affect the amygdala and pineal gland in the brain, they can help the mind and body by releasing emotional trauma and sharpening focus. People have many distractions in today’s fast-paced world. Essential oils may assist people to stay centered in their goals. Those who are struggling to retain or remember information can breathe the essential oils of peppermint, cardamom, or rosemary to stimulate the brain and memory functions for better concentration.

Young Living Essential Oils
Young Living Essential Oils

1. On the soles of your feet. Our first recommendation for using essential oils is to put them on the bottoms of your feet! If this sounds surprising, just consider that for thousands of years, Chinese healers have used acupuncture and acupressure on the bottoms of their clients’ feet to achieve healthy changes throughout the whole body. (These ancient sciences have been adopted by Western medicine and are even taught in several medical schools in the U.S.

Because of their unique molecular structure, Young Living essential oils will travel throughout the body, to wherever they are needed, in less than half an hour. 67 Ways to Use Young Living Essential Oils for the Beginner


If you are doubtful about the power of diffusion through the whole body, try rubbing a clove of garlic on the soles of your feet, or put it between your toes, and see how long it takes until you taste it! Recipe for Dry Cracked Feet


2. Diffuse your essential oils in the air. This is the traditional way that most people think of to use essential oils. It is an ancient way, and very effective. Most important is that you do not use a diffuser that works with heat of any kind as heat fractures the beneficial molecules in the essential oil. Instead, use one of the Young Living Diffusers.

2. Keep bottles of essential oils tightly closed and store them in a cool location away from light. If stored properly, essential oils will maintain their potency for many years.

3. Keep essential oils out of reach of children. Treat them as you would any product for therapeutic use.

4. Do not use essential oils rich in menthol (such as peppermint) on the throat or neck area of children under 30 months of age or undilted.

5. Direct sunlight and essential oils. Lemon, bergamot, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, White Angelica and other citrus oils may cause a rash or darker pigmentation if applied to skin exposed to direct sunlight or UV rays with 3 to 4 days of use.

6. Keep essential oils away from eye area and do not put into ears. Do not handle contact lenses or rub eyes with essential oils on fingers. Oils with high phenol content such as oregano, helichrysum, cinnamon, thyme, clove. Lemongrass, bergamot, Thieves and ImmuPower may damage contacts and irritate eyes.

7. Pregnant women should consult their health care professional before using essential oils containing constituents with hormone-like activity, such as clary sage, sage, Idaho tansy, juniper and fennel.

8. Epileptics and those with high blood pressure should consult their health care professional before using essential oils. Avoid using hyssop, fennel and Idaho tansy oils.

9. People with allergies should test a small amount of oil on a small area of sensitive skin, such as the inside of the arm, before applying the oil on other areas. The bottom of the feet is one of the safest, most effective places to use essential oils.

10. Before taking GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) essential oils internally, always dilute with an oil-soluble liquid like honey, olive oil or full fat milk.

11. Do not add undiluted essential oils directly to bath water. Use Young Living’s Bath Gel Base as a dispersing agent for oils in the bath.

First Aid: Using Your Young Living Essential Oils and Rose Ointment 

Antiseptics prevent the growth of pathogenic microorganisms. Many essential oils have powerful antiseptic properties. Clove and thyme essential oils have been documented to kill over 50 types of bacteria and 10 types of fungi.

Other potent antiseptic singles include, cinnamon/cassia oil, tea tree, oregano, and mountain savory.

Good Young Living Oils with Antiseptic Properties

Purification, Melrose, Christmas Spirit, Thieves, ImmuPower, Raven, R.C.

Note: Clove, Thyme and Cinnamon are ‘hot’ feeling to the skin so be sure to use a little carrier oil, such as Young Living’s V-6.

Young Living Essential Oil Choices for Antiseptic Skin Care

Thieves Bar Soap, Melaleuca-Rosewood Bar Soap, Melrose essential oil, Thieves Antiseptic Spray, Thieves Wipes, Rose Ointment would be used following the application of your essential oil.

First Aid for Wounds (not for new burns!)

Melrose is a strong topical antiseptic that cleans and disinfects cuts, scrapes, burns, rashes, and bruised tissue. It helps regenerate damaged tissue and reduces inflammation.

Dilute 1 part Melrose essential oil to 1 part carrier oil, V-6. Apply to broken skin, cuts, scrapes, burns, rashes, and infection. Follow with rose ointment to keep wound clean and protected, and the Melrose oil sealed in.

It’s been my personal experience this is a far superior treatment than the over-the-counter Neosporin.

Vitality Through Foot Reflex Points Using Vita Flex and Young Living Essential Oils

Vita Flex Technique means “vitality through the reflexes.” It is a specialized form of hand and foot massage movements that is exceptionally effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body – I recommend using Young Living Essential Oils. Vita Flex is said to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago, and was perfected in the 1960s by Stanley Burroughs long before acupuncture was popular in Western medicine.

It is based on a complete network of reflex points that stimulate all the internal body systems. The YL essential oils are applied to contact points, and energy is released through electrical impulses which are created the fingertips and the reflex points (in a fingertip/hand movement). This charge follows the nerve pathways to a break or clog, usually caused by toxins, damaged tissues, or loss of oxygen. 

As with acupressure there are hundreds of Vita Flex points throughout the human body, encompassing the entire realm of body and mind – that are capable of releasing many kinds of tension, congestion, and imbalances.

In contrast to the steady stimulation of reflexology, Vita Flex uses a rolling and releasing motion, this movement involves placing the fingertips flat on the skin, then rolling up onto the fingertips, and continuing over onto the fingernail using a medium pressure. Then, moving forward (as in inch-by-inch) about half the width of the finger, continuing the rolling and releasing motion of the fingertips repeatedly until the Vita Flex point, or area, is covered. This movement is repeated over the area three times.

You would want to enhance the Vita Flex Technique with your Young Living essential oils which can be orders at You can either apply your essential oil to the Vita Flex area (1-3 drops), or put 1-3 drops of the essential oil in you non-dominant palm and with your fingertips dipped  into the drops of essential oil using a circular motion (3x) , then proceed with the rolling and releasing movements stated above.

When properly applied through specific application of hand rotation movements and control points, vibrational healing energy is released along the neuro-electrical pathways to an exact point.  This healing energy is created by the contact between the fingertips and the reflex points.  The result in spark of energy follows the neuro pathways to the nervous system to where there is a break in the electrical circuit.  Upon reaching the break, any necessary changes are made automatically.

The fingertip movements is very easy to learn and apply. Details and sequence of this technique on a 74 minute DVD Vita Flex Instruction with Tom Woloshyn

This foot chart gives you an idea of which YL oils might be good for specific points for Vita Flex. Some of these essential oils you may already have on hand and by following the steps above you can give it a try right away and see how it feels – it feels really cool.

How to Use Young Living Essential Oils in Vita Flex

Place 1-3 drops of the chosen essential oil in the palm of your hand and use the dominant hand to stir the oils clockwise three times before applying them on location. The same thing applies for those who practice reflexology, acupressure, spinal touch, zone therapy, etc. All types of different therapies will result in a significant improvement when combined with the oxygen and high electrical frequency of the oils.

When using the Vita Flex Technique with essential oils, it is best to start on the bottom of the feet.

This foot chart may seem a little different from the standard reflexology charts. Gary Young found that while testing the electrical currents with the frequency monitor that the contact points were a little different than those shown on standard foot charts.

The Vita Flex charts are based on electrical frequency tracing, which is more accurate.

Earn Free Idaho Balsam Fir Essential Oil and a Deep Relief Roll-On

Two very useful and special Young Living Essential Oils are free until April 15, 2009. Both of these essential oils are some of my favorite oils for not only aromatherapy purposes but for my body aches and pains. They are the best. See how to get them for free at the bottom of this post. Right now I want to share with you the ways I use both… 

About Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea)

The fir tree – commonly used as a christmas tree today – has been prized through the ages for its medicinal effects and ability to heal respiratory conditions and muscular and rheumatic pain, sprains, to elevate mood. 

Balsam fir essential oil is renowned for its benefits to the respiratory system, as well as its ability to soothe over-worked muscles and joints. The oil was recently harvested on Young Living’s own Balsam Fir Farm and contains optimal levels of four important constituents: alpha pineane, beta pineane, camphene, and limonene, which gives it many of its soothing characteristics.

Balsam fir lends its qualities to a variety of Young Living products including Young Living’s specially formulated Deep Relief™ Essential Oil Roll-On (which is also part of the free offer through April 15, 2009, learn more below).

The fragrant influence of Balsam fir is grounding, stimulating to the mind, and relaxing to the body. I find it particularly uplifting when my mood is down and I just love the smell.

The best part about my Young Living oils is the amazing care and perfection that goes into producing every single batch. There is nothing that I’ve ever seen that comes close to the quality of YL oils, they are by far the best essential oils – and I would say that even if I wasn’t a distributor. Here’s an article I wrote on the harvest

Many Ways I like to Use Therapeutic-grade YL Balsam Fir Oil

• Dilute 1 part Idaho Balsam Fir with 1 part V-6 Massage Oil or vegetable oil.

• Mix 5-7 drops Balsam fir with 1/4 cup Sea Salt, add mixture to hot bath water for a nice warming and uplifting soak.

• Applied topically, 2-4 drops on location or used in Raindrop Technique. 

• Chakras or Vita Flex points (on feet). 

• Directly inhale, place a single drop in palm, rub palms together and cup over nose without touching face (keep away from eyes). 

• Diffuse Balsam fir in one of my 3 Young Living Diffusers.  

• As dietary supplement 1-2 drops in 1 teaspoon Agave or honey. Or, a single drop in a cup of hot water as a wintertime tea.

• As a bathroom air freshener – 6-10 drops in a 2 oz. spray bottled filled with water, spritz into air as needed. 

Using Balsam Fir for Congestion and Colds and Flu

Diluted 50-50 with carrier oil (V-6), then massage 1-2 drops on each of the following areas: forehead, nose, cheeks [KEEP AWAY FROM EYES], lower throat, chest and upper back, 1-3 times daily. 

Vita Flex Foot Point Massage

Massage 1-3 drops Balsam fir on Vita Flex points on the feet, 1-2 times daily. 

About Deep Relief Roll-On

Some of the ways I enjoy using Deep Relief: rolled generously on temples and back of neck and shoulders, on my feet, the aching elbow I was having last week (I also used Balsam fir too – they’re excellent together!)

• On the back of my neck for tension headaches.

• Rolled generously on sore, stiff muscles (before bedtime is very nice, I wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed.)

Even my dog Bandit loves this blend! When his back is feeling stiff, I move his long silky hair away to expose his skin and apply a couple of rolling dabs – he loves it! But I would expect that as Deep Relief contains one of his most favorite essential oils, Palo Santo. Read Bandit’s Palo Santo story and here’s a fact sheet on Deep Relief.

Now through April 15, 2009, you can earn a FREE 5 ml Balsam fir essential oil and a FREE 10 ml Deep Relief™ Roll-On with any single order of 165 PV or more!

These products combined have a wholesale value of $44.50, and they will automatically be added to your order absolutely free!
