Like something we shouldn’t even have access to…
Actually it IS one of the oils from the exotic collection introduced a couple years ago! It is available as a single now, which is great!
I finally got a bottle of Hong Kuai this week and wasn’t sure what to do with it. I remember that I attended a lecture at convention and the scientific team talked about it. I wish I could find my notes, because that was before the whole F D A crackdown on what we can talk about…
The one thing I did remember was that Hong Kuai was an oil that contains the highest sesquiterpene levels of any that we currently have. Pretty awesome! I do love some good sesquiterpene action.
I looked it up in some of my reference books and knew it would be a good oil to try…
*sesquiterpene – a chemical constituent who’s job is to delete bad information in cellular memory and is present in almost all essential oils. Grab any basic essential oil chemistry book to learn more about this.
I was having a stressful day…just the normal not-enough-hours-in-the-day kind…when I decided to open my new oils and give em a go.
Well. I have to say I was not impressed with the smell of Hong Kuai upon openeing the bottle! Ha!
But I put a drop in my palm and cupped it over my nose to inhale. And whoa. The world stopped spinning and my body started to relax. Hmmmm, my brain must have needed some sesquitepenes.
After a few minutes I decided it was like Stress Away essential oil x 1000. The smell starting smelling…nice. (that happens with alot of pure essential oils – you may hate it at first and then really grow to love and almost crave it)
Then I put some in my diffuser and slept a really really good sleep!
My favorite diffuser – the Rainstone!
This oil made my Must Pack For Convention list for next week! I am only taking a few favorites on the plane, so yeah it’s THAT good.
Now I can’t say for sure that anyone else would have the same reaction that I did. We are all different and that’s just the truth about using oils. What works for me may not work for you.
Let me know if you have questions about account creation, or essential oils in general.
Here is the history and some of the very generic uses for this oil:
Hong Kuai (Chamaecyparis formosensis) is a treasured tree found high atop the steep mountain rainforests of Taiwan. Hong Kuai trees typically live 1,000–2,000 years, with every tree ring having its own deposit of that year’s essential oil. Hong Kuai’s lasting, sesquiterpene-rich, woody aroma makes it a sacred lumber for building temples and shrines; its name in Chinese means “the respected trees for the temple-building society.”
- Diffuse to create confidence and a positive emotional outlook.
- Put a drop in your sacred books, writings, or journal to promote inspiration.
- To boost confidence, inhale or apply topically to temples or heart before you meet with clients or host a sharing party.
- Add a drop to a handkerchief and inhale the scent during a stressful meeting.
- Add a drop to your wallet or purse to help boost confidence everywhere you go.
- Men: Mix 2 drops of Hong Kuai, 1 drop of Ylang Ylang, and 2 drops of Idaho Blue Spruce; use as a gentle, yet empowering, cologne for greater confidence and perseverance.
