“Beyond the Premium Starter Kit” Series Blog Post #2
Last week I started a series of blog posts called “Beyond the Premium Starter Kit”. I would like to continue with another one of my FAVORITE oils-VALOR! Again, these oils are not in any particular order because that would have been too difficult!
I was introduced to the Valor essential oil by Young Living when my oily friend, Erica Cain from Life is Better Oiled, sent me a sample to use as a confidence booster for the Make & Take party I was hosting.
Let me tell you….I was hooked IMMEDIATELY! Honestly, as soon as I rolled it on my wrist and took my first whiff I couldn’t get enough! I even went as far as buying a bottle from someone since it was out of stock when I first discovered this amazing oil!
Valor has a sweet, yet earthy smell that is addicting! If you are not a fan of spruce or frankincense, this oil may not be for you, but I would at least give it a chance! The sweetness gives it just the right amount of femininity, yet does not overpower.
Valor is also amazing for yoga and meditation. Diffuse or apply topically. It is calming and brings a sense of spirituality, strength, and confidence.
I wear it as a perfume daily and LOVE to diffuse it as well! During the times it is out of stock, I try to use it sparingly and dilute it further when I create my perfume rollers.
The reason this oil goes out of stock so often is because of the blue tansy essential oil, which is only available at certain times of year. Because of Valor’s popularity, Young Living created Valor II. Now, I’m not saying I do not like Valor II, but there is just no comparing to the original! I would definitely give it a try if you cannot get your hands on a bottle of Valor though.
Here is what Young Living has to say about their Valor oil:
Valor® essential oil blend is one of our most popular products and a favorite of founder D. Gary Young. Its woodsy, positive scent comes from a blend of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Rosewood, and Frankincense. As an important oil in the Raindrop Technique®, Young Living Valor oil is great for massages, in addition to other topical and aromatic uses.
Use it to greet each morning with a positive attitude or to unwind at the end of the day. Its powerful yet calming scent is versatile enough that you can integrate it into your morning and bedtime routines and anywhere in between.
What is in Valor?
Spruce may help to open and release emotional blocks and bring about a sense of grounding and balance
Frankincense helps with mind focus and overcoming stress. Helps promote and support healthy joint and cartilage function. Helps support a healthy immune system.
Rosewood is empowering and emotionally stabilizing and also helps support a healthy immune system with a soothing and comforting aroma.
Blue Tansyto help support the immune system.
Valor® is a prized essential oil blend by Young Living that contains Rosewood, Spruce, Blue Tansy and Frankincense in a base of coconut oil. Valor® can help balance both the spiritual and physical components of the body to increase feelings of confidence, strength and self-esteem where courage is needed. Valor® is known for its protective qualities, and may enhance an individual’s internal resources. Valor® has been nicknamed the “chiropractor in a bottle.” It has also been found to help the body self-correct its balance and alignment. I like to apply Valor® to my spine before and/or after my chiropractic adjustments. Valor® is also an integral part of the Raindrop Technique which is a safe, non-invasive technique for spinal health.
Other ways to use Valor:
- Diffuse Valor in the morning to jump-start a busy day with its uplifting, affirming scent.
- Combine with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex to unwind before bed with a relaxing foot or back massage.
- Refresh throughout the day by directly inhaling or massaging onto your neck, chest, or hands and wrists.
- Wear as a subtle cologne or use as a base for personalized scents.
- Add to Young Living’s Bath & Shower Gel Base or to a hot bath to invigorate your bath and shower routine.
