Benefits of Ocotea Essential Oil
Helps with weight management.
Reduces cravings in the evening-1 drop in evening.
Stress beater, helps mental relaxation
The Ocotea tree lives deep in the amazon basin of Ecuador and is related to the cinnamon species. Itâ€™s not like any common cinnamon tree though and as for itâ€™s chemistry, has only about 5% cinnamaldehyde as compared to 50% or higher in cinnamon bark oil.Â That means Ocotea will produce much less skin sensitivity than cinnamon bark or cassia essential oils.
What do you do with it?
- Dilute half essential oil 1 — 4 drops vegetable oil (olive or almond, not the Crisco stuff :P)
- Put it on your skin
- Inhale it (smell it) directly out of the bottle.
- Diffuse it: Only cold-diffusers, please. Heat messes up essential oils. Young Living has several great diffusers available:
- Aria Ultrasonic Diffuser Item No. 4524 makes a mist with a couple drops of any essential oil and water. Plus, it looks really cool with colored lights & you can hook it up to your tunes. Comes with two 5 ml bottles of oil: peppermint & tangerine.
- Dewdrop Diffuser Item No. 5330 Custom designed with up to four hours of continuous run diffusion, automatic shut-off, and ambient light control, Young Livingâ€™s Dewdrop Diffuser can transform any space into a spa-like atmosphere. This one comes in the starter kit too!
- Home Diffuser Item No. 4468 This diffuser is the most affordable, it uses ultrasonic stuff to make a mist from a few drops of essential oils and distilled water. As an extra bonus, when you buy this diffuser you also get 2 essential oils, Lavender and Citrus Fresh, in 4 ml bottles
