5 Essential Oils Items You Never Thought You Wanted – Until Now!

5 Essential Oils Items You Never Thought You Wanted - Until Now

I came across some pretty neat oiling items yesterday morning (while sipping on my coffee) and I just had to share them with my readers and fellow essential oil users. If you love essential oils, you’ll likely get a kick out of these five items. I don’t have any of the below items, but I think that I’ll definitely have to order at least one of them for myself (or to give as a gift). :)

1. Essential oils diffuser case ($34.80 – $44.80):

No need to travel without your essential oil diffuser anymore! Safely take your diffuser with you in this protected case. The best part is that there are pockets around the inside of the case to hold your 5-ml and 15-ml bottles of essential oil. There are a variety of colors and patterns available. See it HERE!

2. Young Living cinch sack ($12.00):

I’ve seen Young Living tote bags before, but never a cinch sack. These 100% cotton canvas bags are perfect for advertising your business while carrying your necessities with you (think meetings, trips to the zoo, strolls to the park, summer festivals, etc). These bags have cotton webbing straps and a zippered front pocket for easy storage. Available in dark brown or tan. I just love these types of bags! See it HERE!

3. Aromatherapy stuffed animal ($12.99 – $25.99):

These super cute stuffed animals contain a hidden, grain-filled (and Lavender infused) insert. After heating the insert in the microwave for 30 seconds, your little one can cuddle up next to it and will be asleep in no time! When the original Lavender scent fades, simply freshen it up with a drop of your own Lavender essential oil. Various sizes and animals available. See it HERE!

4. Young Living essential oils key fob ($4.27):

Easily find your keys in your purse with the help of a key fob. This Young Living key fob doubles as a conversation starter for your growing Young Living business. Buy one for yourself or give one as a gift when a member in your downline moves up rank. :) See it HERE!

5. Essential oils car diffuser ($7.90):

Keep your car smelling fresh, fight fatigue, promote focus, and remedy the occasional motion sickness with this essential oil car diffuser. Place 4-6 drops of essential oil onto the diffuser pad (I suggest Peppermint essential oil), slide the pad into the diffuser, and plug it into the lighter outlet. This diffuser comes with 5 refill pads. See it HERE!

For additional oiling items, check out two of my past blog posts showcasing 12 unique gifts and 10 must have accessories.

Essential Oils and Pets: 10 Safety and Usage Tips

Essential Oils and Pets- 10 Safety and Usage Tips

I’ve had a lot of people in our Oil Moxie group contact me with questions regarding essential oils and pets. Although I’m not an expert, I do have two dogs that we diffuse around daily and apply essential oils to throughout the week. I have also spent a significant amount of time reading about the safe use of essential oils on animals. I summarized what I think are 10 of the most important essential oils pet safety and usage tips (for dogs and cats). As with everything on this blog, please use the below information to spark further research. :)

Here we go! 10 super important essential oil tips for pets!

Tip # 1. Because animals cannot tell us if they are experiencing discomfort, never do anything to your pet that you have not done to yourself or that you wouldn’t do to a baby. For example, essential oils are not meant for use in the eye or ear canal of a human – this same rule holds true for animals.

Tip # 2. Our furry friends often weigh a fraction of what we weigh. If one drop of Lavender can soothe the skin of a 160 pound person, it will take MUCH less Lavender to ease the skin of a small 10 pound cat or dog – 6/100th of a drop to be exact! Therefore, use the least amount of essential oil possible on your pet and dilute, dilute, dilute! If your pet is the size of a baby or a small child, dilute the essential oil just as you would if you were going to use it on a baby or a small child. For babies, dilute 1-3 drops of essential oil in 1 Tablespoon of a carrier oil (some dilute much further). Then apply a small amount of that mixture to your baby (or in this case, your pet). For children (between the ages of about 2-5 years), dilute 1-3 drops of essential oil in 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil (some dilute much further). Then apply a small amount of that mixture to your child (or in this case, your pet). Even larger dogs only need 1-2 drops of essential oil (use carrier oil to spread the essential oil over their fur). Be conservative when applying essential oils to an animal and don’t be afraid to use carrier oil. You can always use more essential oil, but you can never take it away.

Tip # 3. Despite what you may have seen elsewhere, do not apply essential oils to your pets’ paws. Human feet and animal paws are not the same. Although some pets tolerate essential oils on their paws quite well, others do not and they can become VERY uncomfortable. The risk of discomfort to your pet does not outweigh the potential benefit. Instead, apply essential oils to your pet by petting them. Petting is highly effective, better tolerated, and a much easier application method. Read below for more detail on the “why” when it comes to steering clear of your pets’ paw.

  • Our furry companions are constantly absorbing toxic chemicals through their paws – think floor cleaners, carpet deodorizers, kitty litter scents, hair product residue, fabric softeners on blankets, fertilizers, weed killers, snow and ice melt, air fresheners, pollution, and other environmental toxins. Purging these toxins from your pet’s body can be highly beneficial and essential oils can initiate a cleansing event. However, when essential oils are applied to the paws of an animal, we can create a highly concentrated and very rapid detoxification. This can be very uncomfortable to your pet and can cause itching, inflammation, redness, and pain. These adverse reactions may be difficult to recognize because the paws are covered in fur.
  • Unlike humans, animals (specifically, cats and dogs) mainly only have sweat glands on their feet. Just as a human wouldn’t apply an essential oil (especially a hot oil) to their armpit, do not apply an essential oil to an animal’s paw. Although the paw of an animal feels tougher than the skin of a human armpit, the paw can still be highly sensitive.

Tip # 4. If your pet is extra furry, don’t worry! It is not necessary to get the oil directly onto your pet’s skin for it to be effective. Hair follicles actually aid in the absorption of essential oils. Therefore, petting the essential oil onto your pet will still allow for the oil to be absorbed into the animal.

Tip # 5. Keep an eye on your pet after applying oils to their fur and while diffusing essential oils in your home. If your pet negatively changes its’ behavior or begins to acts strange, do not reapply or expose your pet to more or another essential oil at that time. Never correct an “oil problem” with another essential oil as it may create additional discomfort.  If you ever suspect discomfort at the location of oil application, do not rinse with water (as this will drive the oil deeper into the tissue). Instead, dilute the area with a carrier oil (Young Living’s V-6 oil, coconut oil, or olive oil).

Tip # 6. Tea Tree oil (or Melaleuca Alternifolia) may be toxic and deadly to cats. Therefore, do not use or diffuse Tea Tree, or blends containing Tea Tree oil (such as, Purification and Melrose) on or around cats. The risk far exceeds any potential benefit. Reserve these oils for use on yourself and your family and use other oils on and around your cats.

Tip # 7. Do not lock your pet in a room while the diffuser is running. Instead, allow your pet to roam freely throughout the house while diffusing essential oils. Your pet will likely move to another room if they are not enjoying the scent or are having a difficult time tolerating the essential oil.

Tip # 8. As beneficial as essential oils can be to an animal, be sure to allow your pet periods of time during the day that are free from essential oils (cats can actually develop liver toxicity from overuse of essential oils). As with anything, balance and moderation is key. You don’t have to be fearful. Simply be cautious and use your oils conservatively (especially when you first start).

Tip # 9. NEVER use low quality or adulterated essential oils on or around animals (as it can be dangerous and toxic). When used correctly, Young Living essential oils are safe to use on pets and can offer amazing health enhancing benefits.

Tip # 10. Do what professionals have already proven to be effective and safe and ALWAYS refer to a reference guide! “The Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils,” the “Reference Guide for Essential Oils” (the book or mobile application), and the “Essential Oils Desk Reference” each have a section dedicated to animals. In my opinion, the BEST essential oil animal resource that is currently available is “The Animal Desk Reference” by Melissa Shelton, DMV. In August 2015, Life Science Publishing will be releasing the first edition of the “Essential Oil Animal Desk Reference.” Each of the resources mentioned are specific to Young Living essential oils and pertain to the French model of essential oil use (click HERE for more info on these resources). Lastly, seek out a veterinarian for serious issues or when in doubt over pet oiling safety.

Master Sergeant Jess Johnson’s Post War Essential Oils Protocol

Master Sergeant Jess Johnson Post War Essential Oils Protocol

One of the best things about the “Lighten Your Load” seminar that I went to on April 18, 2015 was getting to hear decorated war veteran, Master Sergeant Jess Johnson speak. Like many veterans, Johnson suffered from the stress of war. For 45 years, he suffered from sleeplessness, nightmares, and anger (among other symptoms). After meeting Gary Young, Johnson began using Young Living essential oils and reports that he has finally been able to find relief from his post war symptoms! Johnson graciously shared his post war essential oil protocol with us (which I summarized below):

*Remember, everyone’s body chemistry, needs, and tolerance are a little different. Use the below essential oil protocol to spark further research so that you can use essential oils in a way that 1) you are comfortable and feel safe with and 2) works for you.

Post war nighttime essential oils protocol (to promote a good nights rest):

  • Rub 2-3 drops of Frankincense between the toes.
  • Apply 1 drop of Lavender to the back of the neck.
  • Rub 1-3 drops of Forgiveness, Inner Child, Harmony, or Joy essential oil blend onto the spine until dry. Rotate between these essential oil blends, using Forgiveness one night, Inner Child the next night, etc.

*Dilute your essential oils as needed. Click here for dilution instructions. 

Post war daytime essential oils protocol (for balance, stability, and focus):

  • Apply 1 drop of Believe essential oil blend behind each ear.
  • Rub 2 drops of Highest Potential essential oil blend onto the back of the neck.
  • Rub 2 drops of Valor essential oil blend onto the back of the neck. Valor is currently out of stock – great substitutes are Magnify Your Purpose or Inspiration essential oil blends.
  • Drop 5 drops of Frankincense under the tongue. Wait 30 seconds and then swallow with water.
  • This step is optional. Massage 4 drops of Joy or Harmony essential oil blend (alternate the essential oil used each day) onto the spine.

*Dilute your essential oils as needed. Click here for dilution instructions.

Weekly auricular emotional therapy (to release negative emotions):

  • Johnson receives Neuro Auricular Therapy treatment (NAT) once weekly (for at least 11-12 consecutive weeks). NAT was developed by Gary Young and combines the use of essential oils with acupressure meridians (aka: the emotional Vita Flex points) on the ears. A trained health practitioner uses a small pen-shaped instrument with a rounded end to apply emotionally supportive essential oils to the Vita Flex points on the ear. The emotional Vita Flex ear chart is below.

You can find the Young Living essential oils that correspond to the emotional Vita Flex ear points on:

  • Page 36 in the “Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils.”
  • Page 41 in the “Reference Guide for Essential Oils.”
  • Page 390 and 421-424 in the “Essential Oils Desk Reference Sixth Edition.”
  • Under the “Application” section of the “Reference Guide for Essential Oils” mobile application.
Emotions and Ear Chart

  •  Johnson also uses magnetic ear and body pellets throughout the week. Each pellet has an adhesive backing. Johnson adheres a magnetic pellet to a corresponding emotional Vita Flex ear point and leaves it on his ear until it falls off on its own (it usually stays on for several days).

Sergeant Johnson didn’t give us the exact place he purchases his magnetic ear and body pellets, but I was able to find this website that sells them (click here).

Essential Oils for Trauma

Essential Oils for Trauma

I’ve been busy trying to summarize all of the awesome oiling info that I learned at the emotional health seminar that I attended last weekend. The speakers at the seminar discussed trauma at length, including the cause of trauma, the problems that can arise from traumatic events, and some ways to release emotional trauma. Because smell is so closely linked to emotion (the amygdala and the hippocampus are located within less than an inch from the olfactory nerve), we learned ways in which essential oils can assist us in bringing up our blocked emotions so that we can finally let go of the trauma that limits us. Below is what I learned about essential oils for trauma. :)

What causes trauma?

We experience trauma throughout our life. Trauma can occur during childhood and adulthood and can result from a seemingly benign experience or from a larger catastrophic event. According to Dr. Corinne Allen (who was summarized during the conference), traumatic events may include (but are not limited to): abandonment, birth trauma, bonding break with a parent, constant criticism and judgment, anger and violence, rape, incest, sexual molestation, car crash, medical or dental surgery, divorce, death of a loved one, suicide of a loved one, forced emigration or loss of homeland, homeless, illness, torture, accident and/or fall, any experience that causes a threat to your life, being physically attacked, or the experience of war.

What does unresolved trauma cause?

Time alone does not heal trauma and if trauma is not properly dealt with, it can unknowingly cause a whole slew of problems. According to Dr. Corinne Allen (who was summarized during the conference), lingering trauma can cause us to feel disconnected and detached, isolated and alone, sad, overwhelmed, fearful, helpless, worried, hyper-vigilant, hyper-active, and many other negative feelings. Trauma can also cause a lack of focus, mood swings, anger outbursts, sensitivity to light and/or sound, nightmares, loss of memory, physical pain or problems, fatigue, relationship turmoil, addictions, weight gain, yo-yo dieting, work stress, personality conflicts, and much more.

How to use Young Living essential oils to let go of trauma:

One way to release the emotional trauma that limits us is to 1) identify and feel the emotion, 2) identify and feel the other side of the emotion, and 3) identify the lesson or way out of an uncomfortable state. The book, “Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils” by Dr. Carolyn Mein, D.C. provides a wealth of information and was referenced throughout the seminar that I was at.

We were provided with and practiced an “Emotional Pattern and Block Clearing Quick Program,” which is described below. You will need to purchase the “Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils” book to do this program (as you will be referencing the charts in the book). The book is affordable and jam-packed with tons of helpful info (way more than I’ll cover below) – I highly suggest purchasing it!

It isn’t required, but you may want to consider combining the below protocol with psychotherapy (especially if your trauma is quite severe). 

How to practice the “Emotional Pattern and Block Clearing Quick Program” (do twice to several times each day for at least seven weeks):

Step 1

In the book, “Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils,” go to the chapter titled “Emotional Reference.” This chapter includes a chart which lists several different emotions. Identify an emotion that is keeping you stuck and find it on the chart.

Step 2

Use the same chart to find the corresponding essential oil that can assist in releasing that emotional block.

If you do not have the suggested essential oil, you may want to consider trying Idaho Blue Spruce. According to the Essential Oils Desk Reference, Idaho Blue Spruce helps release emotional blocks and traumas.

Example: Young Living’s Purification essential oil corresponds to anger.

Step 3

Apply a small amount of your essential oil to the palm of your hand (dilute if needed). Apply some of it to your forehead near your hairline and some on your belly button (or on the right foot, on the spot between the large and the second toe). Rub any remaining essential oil into your palms. Cup your hands over your nose and mouth and breath deeply (inhale and exhale three times).

Step 4

Place the right hand over the forehead near the hair line. Then place the left hand over the belly so the little finger is just over the naval (or cross the right leg and place a finger from the left hand on the right foot where you applied the essential oil in step 3). These points are referred to as the “alarm points.”

While keeping your right hand and left finger on the alarm points, say three times (while allowing yourself to feel the negative emotion):

  • “I choose to release the trauma behind the trapped emotion of state your emotion that no longer serves me in a positive and productive way.”

Example: “I choose to release the trauma behind the trapped emotion of anger that no longer serves me in a positive and productive way.”

Step 5

Using the same chart, find the “other side” of your negative emotion and use it to fill in the blank. While keeping your right hand and left finger on the alarm points, say three times (while allowing yourself to feel the “other side” of your negative emotion):

  • “I choose ______________ .”

Example: “I choose laughter.”

Step 6

Using the same chart, find the “way out” and use it to fill in each of the blanks. While keeping your right hand and left finger on the alarm points, say three times, with conviction:

  • “I choose ______________ .”
  • “I manifest ______________ .”
  • “I believe ______________ .”
  • “I declare ______________ .”

Example: “I choose my direction is clear.” “I manifest my direction is clear.” “I believe my direction is clear.” “I declare my direction is clear.”

Repeat

Repeat steps 1-6 twice to several times each day for at least seven weeks (or until the negative emotion is cleared).

Essential Oils for Forgiveness

How to Use Essential Oils for Forgiveness

I attended a Young Living essential oils seminar last weekend titled “Lighten Your Load.” The seminar focused on using Young Living essential oils to support emotional health. Forgiveness was one of the topics that was covered at the seminar. Because grudges and resentment can become such limiting factors in our lives, I wanted to share some of the things that I learned about the importance of forgiveness and how you can use your Young Living essential oils to assist with the process.

Why you might want to consider forgiving those that you resent:

When you resent someone, you become emotionally bound to that person. The emotional link that resentment causes can keep you stuck in a rut and can block any good from entering into your life. Forgiving and letting go of the resentment that you hold towards someone is the only way to break free from that person and the darkness that has crept into your life.

Forgiveness is NOT

Forgiveness does not mean that you are excusing someone’s actions. Forgiveness does not mean that you should forget the event ever happened or no longer have any more feelings about it. Forgiveness is not something you do for the person who wronged you.

Forgiveness IS

When you forgive someone, you will still remember what happened. However, you will no longer be bound by it and it will no longer keep you stuck. Forgiveness is something that you do for yourself (NOT for the person that wronged you). Forgiving someone allows you to find a way to live in a state of resolution, heal, move forward, and bring prosperity back into your life. When you forgive someone, you take your power back.

Pray the “Forgiveness Prayer” twice daily:

One step that you can take in the process of forgiving someone is to pray the “Forgiveness Prayer” at least twice a day (upon waking in the morning and before going to bed at night). The prayer is below (as found here):

“I now let go of worn out things, worn out conditions, and worn out relationships.  Divine order is now established and maintained in me and in my world.”

“The inflow and outflow of everything in my life is established in divine order.  I am peaceful and poised.”

“All that has offended me, I forgive. Within and without, I forgive.  Things past, things present, things future I forgive.  I forgive everything and everybody who can possibly need forgiveness in my past and present. I forgive positively everyone.  I am free and all others are free, too. All things are cleared up between us, now and forever.”

“I now release and am released from everything and everybody that are no longer part of the divine plan for my life.  Everything and everybody that are no longer part of the divine plan for my life now release me.”

“I am in right relationship with all people and all situations now.”

How to use essential oils to assist with the forgiveness process:

Essential oils can help center you so that you can be focused and purposeful when you pray. You may want to consider using one of the following Young Living essential oils when you pray the “Forgiveness Prayer:” Frankincense, Inspiration, Sacred Mountain, Acceptance, Forgiveness, 3 Wise Men, Transformation, Valor, or White Angelica. Use your chosen essential oil in one or more of the following ways:

  • Apply a drop of essential oil (dilute if needed) to the crown chakra (located on the top of the head) and over your heart before praying.
  • Diffuse an essential oil while you pray the “Forgiveness Prayer.”
  • Apply a drop of essential oil to the palms of your hands (dilute if needed), cup over your nose and mouth and take 3 deep breaths before and after you say the “Forgiveness Prayer.”

What to Buy After the Young Living Premium Starter Kit – 25 Other Essential Oil Favorites

What to Buy After the Young Living Premium Starter Kit - 25 Other Essential Oil Favorites From Young Living

It’s no secret that the Young Living Premium Starter Kit is the best way to begin using essential oils. Every Young Living essential oil user loves that kit! However, after one of my members told me that she didn’t know what to buy after the Premium Starter Kit, I realized that it was time to start talking more about some of the other essential oils and oil infused products that Young Living has to offer. So, here it is…I finally put together a list of what to buy after the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. I had a VERY difficult time narrowing it down, but I was able to get it down to 25 other essential oil favorites (with some uses for each – although these uses are just the tip of the iceberg). :)

Prices shown are wholesale prices (because you get wholesale pricing on everything once you purchase the Premium Starter Kit).

Refer to the label on each bottle of Young Living essential oil for specific dosage and usage instructions (including dilution directions). Learn more about essential oils safety and usage guidelines HERE. If you came across this post and are new to essential oils, watching my Online Essential Oils 101 Class may be a more helpful place to start. Click HERE to watch my class. 

Beyond the Premium Starter Kit – favorite single essential oils:

1. Orange ($10.75 for 15-ml): Diffuse to encourage positive emotions, uplift the mood, promote proper immune function, and support the body’s cellular processes. Orange is super inexpensive and is one of my favorite aromas!

2. Grapefruit ($16.75 for 15-ml): Diffuse for an uplifting and revitalizing scent – this stuff smells amazing! Diffusing Grapefruit can support the immune system, promote feelings of happiness, and may help decrease food cravings. Apply Grapefruit to the mid section to decrease occasional bloating.

3. Cedarwood ($11.25 for 15-ml): Apply to the bottoms of the feet to ease mild anxiety and promote a restful nights sleep.

4. Copaiba ($43.00 for 15-ml): Use with another essential oil to magnify the effects of that oil.

5. Eucalyptus Globulus ($14.50 for 15-ml): Diffuse or apply to the chest to support proper respiratory function. Apply topically to soothe overworked and sore muscles.

6. Tangerine ($16.00 for 15-ml): Apply topically to decrease occasional stomach bloating, as well as mild swelling in the legs, ankles, and feet. When applied topically, Tangerine does a great job of supporting the lymphatic system.

7. Oregano ($27.75 for 15-ml): Put in a capsule and take orally, or apply to the bottoms of the feet for heavy hitter immune support.

8. Thyme ($33.75 for 15-ml): Diffuse or apply topically on the chest and/or on the bottoms of the feet to support the respiratory and immune system. Thyme may be a better choice than Oregano for kiddos.

9. Lemongrass ($11.25 for 15-ml): Diffuse or apply to the bottoms of the feet to aid normal immune function. Apply to the legs (and the veins there) to support the circulatory system. Use as a spot treatment for mild acne (do this at night as it does temporarily tint the skin a yellowish orange).

Beyond the Premium Starter Kit – favorite essential oil blends:

10. Abundance ($37.00 for 15-ml): Diffuse or apply topically to create a law of attraction with prosperity and plenitude. 

11. Valor ($14.75 for 5-ml): Diffuse or apply topically to promote feelings of courage, confidence, and self-esteem. Use topically to support the body’s balance and alignment. This stuff does an awesome job of easing the occasional stiff neck!

12. Peace & Calming ($14.25 for 5-ml): Diffuse or apply topically to promote relaxation and bring about a sense of calm. Works great on people and dogs (think doggy car rides, thunderstorms, and fireworks)!

13. White Angelica ($28.00 for 5-ml): Diffuse or apply topically to guard against negative energy and promote feelings of protection and security.

14. RC ($10.25 for 5-ml): Diffuse or apply over the lungs to comfort the chest and throat, and support the respiratory system.

15. Gentle Baby  ($21.25 for 5-ml): Diffuse or apply topically to relax mom and baby. Use topically on stretch marks, wrinkles, diaper irritation (be sure to heavily dilute on kiddos), and other minor skin irritations.

16. DiGize ($32.75 for 15-ml): Apply topically or put in a capsule and take orally to promote healthy digestion and soothe occasional stomach discomforts.

17. Breathe Again roll-on ($25.75 for 10-ml): Roll across the sinuses, under the nose, and on the chest to support normal nasal, sinus, and lung function.

18. Deep Relief roll-on ($26.75 for 10-ml): Roll on the temples, back of neck, or any other targeted area where you are experiencing occasional tension and discomfort – provides almost immediate relief!

Beyond the Premium Starter Kit – favorite essential oil infused products:

19. Thieves household cleaner ($22.00 for 14.4-ounces): Add a small amount (directions on the bottle) of this concentrated cleaner to a spray bottle filled with water (makes 432-720 ounces of cleaner). Safer, cheaper, and more effective than store-bought cleaners. Smells awesome too!

20. V-6 ($21.75 for 8-ounces): Use to dilute essential oils for topical application. V-6 is a favorite among oilers because it nourishes the skin, has a long shelf life, doesn’t clog pores, and doesn’t stain clothes. It also comes in a pump bottle, which makes it easy and convenient to use.

21. NingXia Red ($71.00 for two 750-ml bottles; other sizes available): Drink 2 ounces daily to revitalize the body and mind, support the cardiovascular system, promote normal cellular function, aid normal immune response, and support healthy weight management.

22. Thieves bar soap ($10.25 for 3.45-ounce bar): You’ll never think bar soap is lame again. Use Thieves bar soap instead of your regular body wash to feel cleaner and fresher than ever before!

23. Ortho Sport massage oil ($34.75 for 8-ounces): Apply liberally to soothe and warm areas of the body which are tired, stressed, and overworked (such as the legs, neck, shoulders, and back).

24. Thieves Aromabright toothpaste ($9.75 for 0.25-ounce): My teeth feel so much cleaner and my breath is so much fresher with this toothpaste!

25. Young Living lip balms ($4.00 for 0.16-ounce tube): Use to moisturize and protect the lips. Available in Lavender, Cinnamint, and Grapefruit.
