If you’re new to Young Living, you may not know why there is so much hype behind Valor® essential oil and why it is one of the most loved blends of all time. Founder D. Gary Young was inspired to create Valor after he read texts about Roman soldiers that stated they would bathe in essential oils as part of a three-day ceremony to prepare for war. Valor was designed to to inspire feelings of courage, a life of full adventure, and an attitude to never stop growing!
This perfectly balanced blend brings 5 powerful oils together in harmony to create an uplifting, invigorating, and empowering experience. Let’s take a closer look at these 5 oils and their key benefits for a deeper understanding of why this blend is a favorite for so many.
Black Spruce- Black Spruce essential oil comes from Young Living’s pristine Northern Lights Farm in British Columbia, Canada. This oil has a woodsy and invigorating scent that is popular to use during meditation to create a fresh aromatic atmosphere. Black spruce trees have amazing resilience. They can withstand and even thrive in extremely harsh and cold environments.
Camphor Wood- The original Valor formulation contained Rosewood oil, but when it was discovered that Rosewood was being over harvested in some parts of the world, Gary chose to be an industry leader in sustainability practices by reformulating with a more abundant species that offered the same benefits. Camphor trees are part of the evergreen family and can reach up to 40 meters in height and live to be more than 1,000 years old.
Geranium- This beautifully fragrant flower is native to south Africa and is famous for its comforting aroma that promotes feelings of inner peace and spiritual wellness. It includes the natural occurring constituents citronellol and geraniol and adds a hint of sweetness to the Valor blend. Geranium is often used to support the appearance of healthy-looking skin.
Blue Tansy- With over 300 constituents, this is a very powerful and complex oil. Blue Tansy’s primary constituents are Sabinene, Camphor, Chamazulene and Pinene. Chamazulene is what gives Blue Tansy is dark, ink-like color and is also why Valor has a distinct blue color. Blue Tansy is a luxurious oil for the skin has a been used for thousands of years.
Frankincense- In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, the benefits of Frankincense essential oil include maintaining radiant skin, connecting with your highest self, and promoting feelings of grounding and spiritual connectedness. Frankincense is often used to create a safe and comforting environment when diffused or inhaled. For this reason, the empowering presence of Frankincense is a popular addition to meditation and prayer practices. Frankincense has played an integral role in religious ceremonies for thousands of years.
The synergy of these power houses together is undeniable. There’s nothing else like Valor and for that reason, we think it’s one that you need to try for yourself.
