Australian Blue™ was originally formulated with only 5 oils in it. It was re-formulated a few years ago and is now a formula containing 16 essential oils. The most important ingredient is Blue Cypress. The Aboriginal Tiwi people in Northern Australia used this thick oil to help with multiple physical problems. It was a sort of “go-to” oil for these people. Next we have the strong floral note of Ylang Ylang that promotes relaxation and balances male and female energies and restores confidence and equilibrium. Next we have Cedarwood, an oil high in sesquiterpenes which stimulate the limbic part of the brain, the center of emotions and memory. White fir supports the body and creates a feeling of grounding, anchoring, and empowering. Geranium is an oil to release negative memories and ease nervous tension. It is balancing for the emotions, lifts the spirit, and fosters peace and well-being.
Grapefruit oil lends its ability to refresh and uplift as well as boost immunity, relax and lift one’s spirits. Tangerine is another citrus oil that promotes happiness, is calming, and helps with boosting immunity and inducing relaxation. Spearmint gives a completely different note--a minty one to this blend. It too helps to open and release emotional blocks and bring about a feeling of balance and a lasting sense of well-being. Davana is another relaxing oil, this one grows in India. Citrus Hystrix, also known as Kaffir lime, is another citrus oil with similar properties. Lemon promotes clarity of thought and purpose with a fragrance that is invigorating, enhancing, and warming. Ocotea is another Ecuadorian oil that is finding its way into lots of Young Living blends and products. It lends its sweet cinnamon-l ike fragrance to the blend. Jasmine is the next oil and it too is uplifting and stimulating. German Chamomile contributes to the blue color of this blend and is a stabilizing oil for the emotions, and helps release emotions linked to the past. Blue Tansy also contributes to the blueness of the blend. It combats anger and negative emotions, promoting a feeling of self-control. Last but not least, Australian Blue™ has Rose oil in it. This oil helps bring balance and harmony, allowing one to overcome insecurities. It has calming qualities and a lightness of spirit.
You can diffuse Australian Blue™, add it to the bath with a dispersing agent, apply a few drops undiluted on your wrists, neck, temples or the foot vita flex points. You can also use this one diluted for a full body massage.
