doTERRA Oil of the month

Feb 17, 2020 | Essential Oils

Our resident doTERRA specialist Julie Barfoot suggests…


doTERRA’s Ylang Ylang

If you want an essential oil that will make you giddy with LOVE it is Ylang Ylang! It is deliciously sweet, rich and spicy and has a truly seductive aroma. Ylang ylang essential oil is considered an aphrodisiac and for this reason has been used for centuries in religious and wedding ceremonies.

Ylang Ylang essential oil is steam distilled from the star shaped flowers of the tropical ylang ylang tree. doTERRA ethically sources ylang ylang oil from growers and distillers on the island of Nosy Be, off the northwest coast of Madagascar where some of the highest quality ylang ylang is grown in the world.

Ylang ylang has many wonderful benefits. It can be used for relaxation, to lessen tension and promote a positive outlook. Due to its powerful scent only a small amount is needed for application and diffusion. Emotionally, ylang ylang is a powerful ‘heart’ oil. Modern day society often reveres the workings of the mind over the heart yet ‘heart knowing’ and accessing our intuition is also an essential part of the soul. Ylang ylang helps support that connection with ourselves.


Suggested Uses:

Aromatic: Inhale directly from the bottle or place 1-2 drops in an ultra sonic diffuser.

Topical Use:  Place a drop in the palm of the hands, rub directly over the heart area.

Tip: Place 2-3 drops of ylang ylang into a tepid epsom salt bath before bedtime for some relaxation and summer lovin!. 

If you are looking for more natural solutions and would like to order Ylang Ylang essential oil  we would be delighted to do that for you at the front desk counter at The Living Well Studio.

As per the government health guidelines on the 22nd of March 2020 non essential services will be closed. This does not include us. While we are still open for our usual services we will be practicing strict and heightened hygiene measures during this time to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

From the PM’s address today, we want to be clear we are not a gym. We are a health care practice, that provides services to optimise health and reduce pain from musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Our studio team are ensuring complete high grade sanitisation of props and equipment that will only be single person use for each session, and ensuring social distancing. The staff and studio have had no connection to the COVID-19 at this time.

As per the government health guidelines we will not allow access to our services if you answer “yes” to any of the below:

Have you been overseas in the last 14 days?
Have you been in contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
Do you have a dry cough, shortness of breath, fever or sore throat?
If answered yes to any of the above, please call the COVID-19 hotline on 1800 020 080.

We ask patients who are at risk to please let us know before your appointment so we can discuss your position. This includes immune-suppressed, the elderly and those who have been in high-risk areas. We also ask that you call the clinic if you do develop COVID-19 or have come in contact with someone who has so we can act according to the government recommendations.

For all treatments, our linen is being changed for every client and a wipe down of all equipment used. We ask that you remain in your car until your treatment time to minimise patient to patient contact in the waiting area. We also ask that you use ‘tap and go’ for your payment method rather than cash. Also we will not require you to sign your health fund slip to minimise cross use of pens between staff and patients. All our door handles and surfaces are regularly being cleaned during the day.

We ask everyone who comes in for group therapy sessions.

Bring a large towel and socks.
Keep 1.5m distance between yourself and others.
Wash your hands before and after the class.
If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your face and wash or sanitise hands immediately.
If you wish to wear gloves we have them available for you.
Online and Telehealth will be an option in the very near future….watch this space.

We are understanding of each and everyone’s individual position and we deeply care for your health and encourage everyone to take steps to keep strong and healthy at this time. Please feel free to call or email our staff to voice your concern and receive guidance. We are dedicated to informing you of our position and future movements in relation to Covid-19.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
