April 2014 Featured Oil – Purification

purificationPurification Essential Oil is a proprietary blend of essential oils made exclusively by Young Living Essential Oils. This is an antiseptic blend of Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus), lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis), melaleuca (Melaleuca alternifolia), lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida) and myrtle (Myrtus communis) formulated for diffusing to purify and cleanse the air and neutralize mildew, cigarette smoke and disagreeable odors.

Purification is amazing on ant and mosquito bites. When Reese and I get bitten, the bites tend to swell almost immediately. When we apply Purification oil – as soon as possible after being bitten – the bites do not swell. We were able to test this out several times this summer, and if we got to it quickly, there was no swelling and very minimal – if any – itching. It was awesome! You can also deter bugs from the beginning with Myra’s homemade bug repellant, made with YL’s Purification and Peppermint oils.

Another great way to freshen your home with Purification is by diffusing it. This will cleanse the air and help eliminate germs*. In addition to Thieves, Purification is a great germ-fighter. If you don’t have a diffuser, get a similar effect with a homemade air freshener.

Purification essential oil is a blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Melaleuca, and Myrtle essential oils. This blend has been found to be especially helpful in neutralizing odors, as well as, being effective on mold and mildew.* It is fantastic for cleansing and disinfecting the air.
