I'm not talking about birds, but a blend from Young Living! Raven is a blend of Camphor (Ravintsara), Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata. The aroma of this blend is very spa-like and is soothing to the senses. I love the very mild scent this blend has, it's like a comforting embrace..... ahhhhh
Interesting fact about Ravintsara, one of the singles in this blend, it is referred by the people of Madagascar as the "oil that heals", supports the nerves and respiratory system. It is said to be clarifying to the mind, stimulating and purifying, helping to clear brain fog and strengthen motivation.
Like many other essential oil singles, or blends, from Young Living it has multiple uses.
10 Ways to Use Raven:
1.) I like to diffuse it with Peppermint and Lavender to support clear and easy breathing.
2.) Apply to sore muscles, backs and bruised areas along with Panaway, Lavender and Peppermint to soothe and comfort.
3.) Combine with Peppermint and Lemon then mix with my base ointment of shea butter and beeswax to make a chest rub to soothe temporary stuffiness, coughing and congestion.
4.) Diffuse it to create that relaxing spa-like environment; It has a very soothing aroma while also refreshing the mind and spirit.
5.) I love to add it to my diffuser with Lemon and Frankincense to support my overall wellness and health of my respiratory system.
6.) Apply to chest area and diffuse with Lemon and Peppermint during workouts, before and after too!
7.) Going for a run? Apply a couple of drops to your chest to help you breath deeply during your run. (This suggestion came from a friend... I don't run, unless someone is chasing me! lol)
8.) Add a few drops to 1/2-1 cup of Epsom salts, then pour into very warm water. Soak in the warmth while you soothe those aches from exercise, workouts, yard work or just ease the stress of the day.
9.) Very beneficial to diffuse at night because of it's cleansing abilities. Help to clear away the junk from the day before and start the next day fresh!
10.) Apply to toenails and feet to support overall wellness and health of nails. It's a boost to the immune system!
