~ Happy 2013 ~
Many of us love the New Year as it gives a
fresh start; but I am reminded that we
have an opportunity to start fresh everyday
and anytime we want. And essential oils
help us do that by gently encouraging us
to let go of our old “stuff” and visualize
and step into our new goals for the year to
I said this last year, but it bears
repeating…...My wish for you this coming
year is for it to be better than all of the
other years. I hope you will vow to do
some of the things you've always wanted
to do but couldn't find the time or thought
you could not afford to do.
Call a forgotten friend. Drop an old
grudge, and replace it with some pleasant
memories. Vow not to make a promise you
don't think you can keep. Learn to say
NO. Green your home, you will not be
sorry. Take a trip that you have always
wanted to take. Buy that one thing that
you have wanted for years. Learn
something new. Walk tall and smile more,
you'll look ten years younger. Get enough
sleep. Don't be afraid to say, 'I love you'.
They are the sweetest words in the
I hope that this month’s newsletter will
help you jump start 2013. On Page 2 we
will look at which oils will help you get
a fresh start for the new year.

we have the opportunity to start afresh.

setting goals and keeping them intact

January - A Time for Rebirthing
The month of January represents rebirthing. It is filled
with activities that ask us to clean up, let go and
embrace the new. January asks us to look at deeper
issues such as looking at what situations, people and
relationships are not working in our lives and need to
be eliminated or changed for the New Year and
beyond. Many of us choose to deepen our spirituality
by “going deeper” to explore our spiritual gifts that we
can share with others. Even the “physical things” such
as throwing out another year of tax receipts, setting
up new files for the year and setting goals helps us to
move into a new space.
As we head into the new energies and frequencies of
2013, we are being pressed to look at our issues
straight in the eye, stand in our truth and become the
person we need to be to match the new energies. And
this truly is a rebirthing process. This rebirthing
energy will be with us for most of the year.
While this can be challenging process, we are blessed
with essential oils that can support us as we make
important changes that are required for our evolution
and the planets.
The first blend that comes to mind is Transformation
Blend. Transformation essential oil releases the
emotions of can’t do it, stagnation and limitation. It
helps us move forward into a place of love,
compassion and accountability. Transformation
contains: Clary sage and frankincense oils as
described in Into the Future. Lemon essential oil
brings “spirit into action” by cleansing on all levels;
changing pessimism to optimism and helping us focus
on what we want. Cardamon essential oil opens the
heart chakra and helps us accept new paradigms or
beliefs that will need to be changed. Sandalwood and
frankincense oils oxygenate the pineal gland which
helps us become more receptive to intuition and
connect with Source. Finally, rosemary essential oil is
comforting and supporting; and shows us that we
must be loyal to ourselves! Wear Transformation as a
perfume or cologne, diffuse it and place on the crown
of your head.
Rebirthing is a custom blend that a friend of mine made
to help her work with her horses, but this blend works
great for people also. Here are the details so you can
make it at home.
Rebirthing Essential Oil Blend:
Rebirthing is an amazing blend that helps one feel
connected, respected and supported through
challenging life situations. No matter where we are in
our life sometimes life can feel difficult
and we can use some extra assistance.
This oil reminds us that for each
challenge there is an opportunity, as
this is how spirit encourages us to
learn, move forward and let go of the
things that no longer work for us.
Remember that it is our choice to flow with the punches
and understand the purpose; or resist and create
physical, emotional and spiritual disharmony in our
lives. The emotions or action associated with each oil is
listed below for reference.
8 drops of Spruce Essential Oil – Offers protection;
enhanced communication with Divine; self-respect;
creates emotional balance necessary to receive and
give. Promotes release of emotional blocks.
4 drops of Lemon Essential Oil – Releases fear of
detachment; stuck; sadness; life being unreliable;
frustration; being left behind. Promotes “spirit in
action”, cleansing and optimism.
3 drops of Cypress Essential Oil – Releases
disrespect; addiction to drama. Promotes
acceptance of choice and understanding lessons;
discernment; moving forward with life changing
3 drops of Sacred Frankincense Essential Oil –
Releases worthlessness; denial; spiritual emptiness.
Promotes connection with Divine; spiritual purpose
and growth; and rebirthing.
3 drops of Palo Santo Essential Oil – Releases
obliteration; spiritual emptiness. Promotes
connection with Divine; euphoria. Supports and
grounds the body and mind during times of
transition and evolution.
If you use this blend and have any testimonials, please pass
them on to me so I can continue to learn and document.
Scents - Goal Setting
Many of us start the New Year by revisiting our
goals from last year and re-establishing goals for
the New Year. There are many essential oils that
can help us reach and visualize our goals/
Some of my suggestions for goal setting are: Into
the Future, Envision and Highest Potential
blends. Remember to wear them as perfume or
cologne, and diffuse them in your work space and
home to help you manifest your goals. My
personal favorite is Into the Future!
Into the Future contains
clary sage, ylang ylang,
Idaho tansy, white fir,
jasmine, orange and
cedarwood. Juniper is an
emotional and physical
detoxifier which allows us to cleanse and let go of
the old so we can make room for the new. Clary
sage quiets the mind and brings clarity by
cleansing and energizing one’s mental state. Use
Idaho Tansy to repel negative thoughts.
Frankincense and Cedarwood help us connect
with our creator and oxygenate the pineal gland.
Jasmine, orange and ylang ylang bring joy to our
heart and allow us to let go of emotional stress
by instilling self love. White Fir is placed in the
blend to empower, support and anchor our goals.
All these oils blend perfectly to create an oil that
represents leaving the past behind so we can
move forward in a more positive way; and
supports our highest vision of our self!
Remember when we
are in a negative
space then that is
what we will
manifest – more
Oils for Perfumes
Using essential oils for perfume (or cologne) is a
great way to smell fantastic, feel great and improve
your health at the same time!
Is there anything else on the Planet that does that?
Imagine if you could wear (or make) a perfume (or
cologne) that was non-toxic to the body and actually
could help you manage your anxiety level, or any
other emotional or physical situation. Well, you can.
Read on and I will tell you how!
Essential oils are the original, unadulterated
perfume. They have been used for centuries to
arouse our senses, cover body odor and invoke gods
in spiritual rituals! It is believed that the Hungarians
created the first “perfume” from a blend of plant oils
and alcohol. But by the 19th century, we discovered
how to create synthetic versions of plant essences.
Since, the synthetics were less costly to create and
could be easily made in bulk; many of the “original”
versions using pure essential oils were discontinued!
So today our perfumes, like our soaps, hair goods
and household cleaners, are simply synthetically
made products that further pollute our bodies and
Did you know that approximately 98% of the
essential oils produced today are for the perfume
industry? Yes, so by simple math, that leaves 2% for
medicinal or therapeutic use. Perfume grade oils are
cut with solvents or distilled through a solvent
extraction process to save time and money, so all
their therapeutic effects are lost. But, why buy
synthetic perfumes or colognes (or oils), when you
can wear therapeutic grade essential oils for
perfume and have it all! Why not? As a matter of
fact, I have not bought a commercially
manufactured perfume since I began using Young
Living. Every time, I wear Joy, Present Time, Stress
Away, or a custom blend of oils for perfume, people
always ask me what I am wearing. And they are
pleasantly surprised when I say it is a professionally
made essential oil blend! Really?
NasCia Naturals -
Healthy Skin Care News-Because You Matter
But don’t some of the Best Perfumes contain Essential
Oils? Yes, some do. But as I said earlier even when
they are using perfume grade oils, not therapeutic
grade. Most inexpensive perfumes are made strictly
from synthetically manufactured fragrances! Also,
Did you know that Perfumes and Colognes contain up
to 90-95% Alcohol?
Yes! Here are the percentages for you…
Perfume/Cologne contains 90-95% alcohol and 15-
30% essential oils or fragrance. • Eau de
perfume/cologne contains 80-90% alcohol and 8-
15% essential oils or fragrance. • Eau de toilette
contains 80-90% alcohol and 4-8% essential oils or
fragrance. • Eau de cologne contains 70% alcohol
and 3-5% essential oils or fragrance. • Splash
colognes contains 80% alcohol and 1-3% essential
oils or fragrance. And what are they charging for
these synthetically produced perfumes? A lot of
money considering they are perfume grade oils (if
that) and they are mostly made of alcohol! Wow!
What Oils are they using in the Top Perfumes and
Colognes in the World? Here are some examples of
essential oils for perfume:
-Joy Perfume by Jean Patou is considered as one of
the “most expensive perfumes in the world”! It

And you thought the men would be left out of the rose
and lavender essential oil department! Not true! You see
from that list that essential oils are not dominantly male
or female, especially in blends! There is an art to blending
and it is the combination of the essential oils for perfume
that brings out the unique aroma. Giorgio Armani knows!
So, as you can see, you don’t have to purchase expensive
perfumes and colognes when you have essential oils for
So let’s choose one! How do I Choose the Perfect Potion
Choosing an oil or blend depends on several factors: •
Your natural body scent; • The fragrance we want; and/
or • The influence we want for ourselves or others!
What is my Natural Body Scent and what Creates It? Our
specific body scent depends on… • Our sweat glands; •
What we eat or drink; • Our overall condition of our
health; • The time of day; and • Our Emotional State!
There are many ways to determine essential oils for
perfume. For instance: gender (obviously); hair color or
skin color, or time of year. But why get so complicated?
Don’t! I personally would choose a blend or single oil
according to the emotional effect that I want! After all,
that is what scent is really all about. When we smell
something, the scent crosses the brain-blood barrier
of our brain and triggers memories in the amygdale or
the emotional control center in the brain. This is why
smelling cookies can bring back pleasant (or maybe
unpleasant) emotions and memories instantly!
Essential oils do this within seconds!
So What is the Emotional Effect I Want?
You can create any emotional effect you want –
calming, refreshing, romantic, joyful or sexy! There
are a million different emotions or moods you can
I Want to be Calm and Relaxed, what Should I Wear?
Here are some of the calming scents. • Peace &
Calming Essential Oil **• Valor Essential Oil **
• Lavender Essential Oil, • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
I Want to Wear something that is Uplifting and Fresh,
what Should I Use?
Here are some of the uplifting scents. Most of the
essential oils that are citrus or contain citrus fit in this
category. • Citrus Fresh Essential Oil**• Grapefruit
Essential Oil**, • Orange Essential Oil**
I want to wear something for a Romantic Evening,
what should I wear?
Here are some of the essential oils for perfume that
will bring out the romantic in you! • Joy Essential Oil,
• Ginger Essential Oil**, • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, •
Lady Sclareol Essential Oil For Men, Sandalwood or
Cedarwood combined with a small amount of
Patchouli or Orange makes a great romantic scent.
Women love Sandalwood on men.
I want to wear something to feel sexy for my hot date,
what should I choose?
I would choose something that has aphrodisiac
properties! Why not? Here is the list!
• Rose Otto Essential Oil, • Sandalwood Essential
Oil**, • Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil**, • Sensation
How do I choose my Essential Oils for Perfume by
Scent? Here are some examples: Earthy, Woody,
Fruity, Floral, Herbal or Spicy!
What are the Earthy Scents? Here are some of the
essential oils for perfume that have earthy scents:
• Vetiver **, • Patchouli **, • Lemongrass **

Almost all the tree essential oils will work. Here are a few
woody scents that I like: • Sandalwood Essential Oil**,
• Cedarwood Essential Oil**, • Palo Santo Essential Oil**.
• Present Time Essential Oil**, • Release Essential Oil, •
Inner Child Essential Oil
Which ones can I use as Cologne? I mean I really don’t
want to smell like a Rose Garden! The ones marked with
an asterisk ** can be worn by men or women! But as you
see by the ingredients in Aramis Tuscany Cologne ,
essential oils really aren’t purely designated by gender!
It is the blend of oils that brings out a distinctive aroma.
When mixing oils for perfume, there are low notes middle
notes and high notes. One has to experiment to get the
perfect scent for them or use a blend, such as those
prepared by Young Living.

Plastic in Your Scrub??
Is There Plastic in Your Exfoliating
Ron heard on the radio this week that in 2015 Dove is going
to remove plastic from their face scrubs. What?? So I
began to research. I am shocked!!
Many skin care brands, both drug store and high end
brands now use polyethelene microbeads to exfoliate your
skin, rather than other natural sourced ingredients.
Polyethylene is the same substance that single-use
shopping bags are made from. Unfortunately, plastic
microbeads could be at least as hazardous to wildlife as any
plastic bag. These tiny beads don't need to break down in
order to be accidentally eaten by any number of creatures.
Another problem is that microbeads are actually designed
to be washed down the drain - and out into the
environment. Sewage treatment plants are not designed to
remove this kind of debris. So not only will our oceans end
up with this additional plastic pollution, our lakes and
rivers will have these in them too.
Last, but far from least….what is Polyethylene doing to your
skin? Again, I continued to research. I read reports from
the International Journal of Toxicology. I read reports on
Pub Med. I checked out the Environmental Working Group
Website. Nothing I found could justify the safety of using
products with Polyethylene Glycol or PEGs. The Cosmetic
Journal reports that “impurities found in various PEG
compounds include ethylene oxide; 1,4-Dioxane; polycyclic
aromatic compounds; and heavy metals such as Lead, iron,
cobalt, nickel, cadmium, and arsenic. Many of these
impurities are linked to cancer. PEG compounds have been
found to open the pores of the skin, enabling
environmental toxins to more easily enter the body.
NasCia Naturals uses all natural ingredients. Our scrubs
have ingredients such as ground organic rice, ground adzuki
beans, course ground organic oats, ground organic walnut
shells, just to name a few of the exfoliating ingredients we
utilize. You will never find PEGs in our products. We carry
both facial and body scrubs. All of our products contain
Aloe Vera and MSM. If you have any questions, please
don’t hesitate to contact me.

consumers to make sensible
decisions for their wellness.

A recent study conducted in three nursing homes in
Japan concludes that lavender oil may help prevent
falls in the elderly. In the year-long study, residents
were given patches to wear on a daily basis, with a
control group receiving patches infused with lavender
oil and a placebo group receiving identical unscented
patches. Residents who received the continuous
lavender scent reported a significant decrease in falls.
Lavender has balancing properties that calm the mind
and body and has been traditionally used to soothe
anxiety.* According to the study, these properties may
play a role in the reduction of falls in the nursing home
residents. Click here to read the entire article.
