Gary’s Light is the first blend formulated by Mary Young. She created this blend during the tumultuous times of 2020, when everyone can use a bit more balance and emotional support. The aroma is a lovely balance of sweetness and earthiness, with a touch of bright menthol. The harmonious combination of the essential oils in this blend make it great for grounding as well as getting in touch with your spiritual side.
Gary’s Light essential oil blend includes the following essential oils:
This blend was carefully formulated to balance and support our emotional, physical, and spiritual well being. Myrrh provides an earthy, base note and supports the root chakra, while cinnamon bark supports the middle chakras (sacral, solar plexus, and heart). Eucalyptus also supports the heart chakra, and sacred frankincense brings balance to the throat, third eye, and crown. Finishing off the blend is petitgrain. This essential oil comes from the leaves of the orange blossom tree. Some cultures believe petitgrain descended directly from the heavens, and it is a powerful crown chakra enhancer.
This makes the blend very unique in that it has the ability to support complete unity and balance among all of the chakras. Usually, you would need to apply multiple layers of essential oils to achieve this type of harmonious balance.
Chemical Profile Of Gary’s Light
Gary’s Light also contains some impressive players when it comes to chemical constituents.
Eucalyptus and Dorado Azul impart 1,8-cineole, or eucalyptol. This oxide is beneficial for respiratory support, and is also used as a flavoring agent in toothpastes, gum, mints and other products. Additionally, eucalyptol is a potent anti-inflammatory, making it beneficial to sore, inflamed muscles and joints after strenuous exercise.
Cinnamaldehyde, eugenol, and geraniol are powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, and cinnamaldehyde may also help to balance blood sugar. The combination of these in this blend also make it very purifying and potentially detoxifying as well.
In addition to geraniol, lemongrass essential oil contains geranial. Geraniol is an alcohol, while geranial is an aldehyde, as is cinnamaldehyde. Aldehydes are very soothing to the body and the nervous system. They support relaxation and even have mild sedative properties.
Alpha-pinene, found in sacred frankincense and cistus, focuses and concentrates the mind. It also has antioxidant properties and supports the immune system.
Myrrh contains up to 75% sesquiterpenes, which can be very calming. Myrrh is a great addition to this blend because it brings a grounding aspect. It also helps to extend the aroma of the blend so you can enjoy it longer.
Hyssop contains up to 65% of the ketones known as pinocamphones. These constituents are not only physically cleansing, but many people also believe they are spiritually cleansing as well. Historically, hyssop has been regarded as a protective oil used for consecrating holy places. It clears negativity and promotes spiritual well-being.
