Well-Scent Essential Oils Review

 

Well-Scent is one of my favorite brands of essential oils. Why? They are organic, wild-crafted and are often recommend by physicians for complex illnesses like Lyme Disease. Their blends are really unique and some are extremely targeted. You won't find anything quite like these unique blends elsewhere! 

 

In addition to having blends for physical ailments like Lyme Disease, pain, sinus congestion and detoxification they also have blends specifically for emotional support and a line of skin care and holistic dental care. 

 

I have four of their blends to share with you. I am proud to be an ambassador for Well-Scent. Some of these oils I purchased on my own and some were sent to me as PR samples. I love each one of them and highly recommend them.

 

Relieve. This blend is formulated for pain, arthritis and inflammation. It's a blend of Wintergreen, Thyme, Roman Chamomile, German Chamomile, Marjoram, Laurel, Clove and Jojoba oils. 

 

This blend can be used topically for really any type of pain of inflammation. I use it for headaches and migraines. I've only had to use it a few times, but each time I've used it I get nearly instant relief. Much more so than with only using peppermint oil. It smells predominately of wintergreen with a little extra sweetness. 

 

Balance.  This blend is a heavy hitter! It is formulated for Lyme disease, immune support, lymphatic support, can combat bio-films and support many internal organs. It is anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic. 

 

This blend can be used to help support any chronic or acute illness to boost immunity. It can also be used topically for skin rashes. I use this one topically when I'm having a rough day with vertigo, although I know many people who use this daily to combat chronic illness. 

 

It is a blend of Myrhh, Blod Orange, Cedarwood, Rosemary, Oregano, Frankincense, Vetiver and Jojoba Oil. It smells a bit woodsy, but not too strong and not offensive. 

 

Rejuvenate. This blend is one of my favorites! It supports liver detoxification and digestion. it is a blend of Fennel, Geranium, Carrot Seed Oil, Rosemary, Roman Chamomile, Blue Tansy, Helichrysum and Jojoba Oil. 

 

The scent of this blend is really hard to describe. I'd say I mainly detect an herbal, blue tansy vibe. 

 

This blend can be used to aid in liver detoxification and also digestion. It is really great to use before a colonic or sauna to increase the benefits of those detox methods. The reason I love this one is when I apply it topically over my liver I swear I can feel my liver wake up and start working better! It's like a double shot espresso to detox. 

 

Release. This blend is for circulation, lymphatics and detox. It is a blend of Laurel, Cypress, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. 

 

This one is great for deep lymphatic detoxification and sinus support. It can be used to help support lymphatic detox with chronic conditions like Lyme Disease and Mold Illness or even for acute illnesses like colds. I often use this in a detox bath or directly over lymph nodes. It smells a mostly like cypress and eucalyptus to me.

Young Living Essential Oil Collection

My Young Living Essential Oil Collection In A Nutshell....

1. The Raindrop Technique Kit which includes Cypress, Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Valor, Wintergreen AromaSeiz, Thyme. This kit is supposed to help draw out viruses, and other microbes hiding along the spine.

2. Endoflex. Unfortunately, this oil gives me a headache, but it is great for hormone balance.

3. Lime & Grapefruit. My must haves for diffusing! These two oils make my home smell like vacation.

4. Frankincense. My love for frankincense has been well documented. It is the kind of oils, the original medicine and it was good enough for Baby Jesus. Mixed with other oils, it intensifies the effect of the other oils. I especially like to use this for vertigo and grounding.

5. Lemon. Another favorite to diffuse. Fantastic for cleaning. Delicious in water.

6. Peppermint. I never want to run out of peppermint! It has increased my quality of life by decreasing my pain so effectively.

7. Lavender. While I don't love floral scents, I find lavender an essential part of my night time routine.

8. Thieves. If you're going to start a Young Living Collection, thieves is essential. Known to be so powerful for the immune system, legend has it that thieves would rob the graves of those who died from the Bubonic plague and didn't get sick when wearing this blend.

Non-Beauty Favorites

My all-natural, non-beauty favorites in a nutshell...

1. Young Living Essential Oils. I was such a skeptic when it came to essential oils, until I tried them. I have truly adopted these into my every day living. A few of my favorites include Peppermint, Thieves, Lemon, and Lavender.
2. Hydrogen Peroxide. I use this to disinfect my retainers and toothbrush each night (a sexy image, I know). It's also fantastic to use as a mouthwash and great for cleaning out window sills. So diverse!
3. Epsom Salt. What is a detox bath without Epsom Salt? Just a bath. Many of us are deficient in magnesium, so taking a relaxing detox bath with Epsom Salt can be a great way to relieve stress, sooth muscles and increase magnesium levels.
4. Baking Soda & Vinegar. The ultimate in all-natural cleaning products!
5. Healthy Beverages like LaCroix and Zevia. I love drinking water (especially lemon water), but sometimes I want a healthy sparkling beverage with a little more flavor.
