So as you can see these are so powerful and really can change your home to a toxic free home while also enjoying the aroma and other benefits of Essential Oils. I have talked about the everyday oils and now this week I want to feature another one, the oil called Valor

This is an oil blend made up of Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frakincense, and Spruce. Valor is known as an energy balancing blend and it works with the body’s electrical and nervous system bringing alignment and balance throughout the whole body system. When applied to the feet, spine and neck, this blend of spruce, blue tansy, rosewood and frankincense supports the muscular skeletal system of the body. Valor has gained respect from chiropractors, who find it beneficial when applied on a client before and after an adjustment. Valor has been known to help those who suffer from stage fright, anxiety, and extreme tension, by rubbing few drops onto the hands and breathing deeply. To create a deeper sleep, rub on the bottoms of your feet before bed. Some other uses of Valor are as follows:

Emotional Strength: Rub a few drops of Valor over the heart neck wrists and on the bottom of each foot to relieve feelings of fear and anxiety

Back Pain/Injury: Apply Valor to the bottoms of feet and spine to help with alignment

Joint Pain/Injury: Add a few drops of valor to V-6 mixing oil and apply to the joints

TMJ: Rub Valor on the jaw before bad and in the morning until the pain is relieved

Sciatica: apply 2 drops of valor to the heels of feet using pressure

Anxiety: Rub a few drops on feet, neck, chest. Breathe deeply

Sleep Apnea: Apply Valor to the bottoms of feet before bed

Stiff Neck: Use 2 drops of Valor on neck and massage

Spinal Adjustment: Rub a few drops of valor up and down the spine and the bottom arches of feet

 

This is just one oil! Look at all the uses with one oil blend 🙂 With this oil and other Essential they have to be used daily to really reap the benefits. Mixing it with V-6 mixing oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil or olive oil is good when you are first using the oils. Just in case of skin sensitivity or if they are being used in massage the mixing oil is a good idea with these potent Essential oils.
