Valor essential oil features Frankincense, Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Camphor Wood, and Geranium and was formulated based on historical writings about Roman soldiers who were said to apply plant extracts and botanicals to instill feelings of courage and confidence before going into battle. It is an incredible blend and one of Young Living's most popular oils!! If I had to sum up Valor's benefits in one word, it would be: Balance.
Using Valor for support can be as simple as applying some to your shoulders, the bottoms of your feet, the back of your neck, or anywhere that you're experiencing tension or a stressful tightness in your body. It's the ultimate diffuser oil with its deep, grounding fragrance.
One great technique is to place a drop or two of Valor between your wrists (palm-up side), and then hold them together for a few minutes. If you're taking time to relax, meditate, or work on your spiritual and emotional health, you can just hold your wrists together while you're sitting quietly. I do this on airplanes, before I go to large social events, and any time that I'm feeling scattered or worried instead of grounded and at peace.
When you're using Valor for balance, you can focus on instilling these new thoughts:
Peace. Respect. Growth.
Give your body permission to be at peace. Respect that people are powerful to make their own choices, and let go. Give your good habits a chance to grow instead of letting the seeds you plant be uprooted by stress.
VALOR AT A GLANCE
BACKGROUND Each essential oil in Valor was carefully selected for its unique benefits:
KEY CONSTITUENTS Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them sprecic health-supporting properties
VALOR & EMOTIONS Valor essential oil blend contains blue tansy essential oil, an oil that specifically helps to calm the Central Nervous System. Valor essential oil blend releases the emotions of:
This list practically spells out “Fight or Flight.” These are the core issues of chronic stress: needing to protect ourselves, or face conflict head on. These extremes of trying to stay alive cause our body to tell certain organs or processes, “Wait - we don't have time - we just have to run. There's no time to digest, reproduce, or sleep.”
That's really not a program to have switched on 24/7.
When your body receives the message for years on end that there isn't time to process your own thoughts and emotions, you slowly lose connection with yourself. You can begin to feel like you're not quite sure that you know who you are anymore outside of what you “get done” in your various roles or titles.
The passion in your life begins to dim because of being starved during this survival process. Emotions like happiness, joy, laughter, curiosity, passion, and compassion are essential to a healthy, balanced life. Fight or Flight doesn't shut down the bad emotions, it begins to block them all - except for fear and anger. And whatever triggers we haven't dealt with become survival instincts.
Valor has properties that get to the core control centers of these programs. When we're ready to make a change, to start challenging that survival mode with a better way of thinking and living, this is the perfect oil.
