The Essentials of Supporting our Body Systems – Part 1
Did you know that Young Living has carefully selected each of the oils in the Premium Starter Kit to ensure that there is support for each of the systems in our bodies? Just another reason why the starter kit is such a great place to begin for any newbies to the oily world and such a great value for anyone interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle in a more natural way.
If you are like me it has probably been awhile since you have taken any biology courses. So I thought it might be helpful to review the systems of our body, their functions, which oils in the premium starter kit can support that system and give a couple of examples of additional Young Living products you might want to try in the future.
What is a Human Body System?
A body system is a group of organs that have similar structure or work together to perform some function in the body. Our bodies are made up of 11 systems, 12 if you count the emotions. This article will cover six of the body systems and a future entry will cover the last six.
What are the Systems of the Body?
Integumentary System: This system protects the body and is the first line of defense against the environment and germs. It includes the skin (the body’s largest organ), hair, nails and sweat glands.
Starter Kit Oils- Lavender, Lemon, Purification and Frankincense
Future Must Haves-Tea Tree, Melrose, personal care products and massage oils
Muscular System: This system produces movement. It includes all of the muscles.
Starter Kit Oils-Copaiba, Pan Away, Peppermint
Future Must Haves-Amora Siez, Deep Relief Roll-on, Ortho Ease Massage Oil, and MineralEssence
Skeletal System: This system supports and shapes the body and protects the internal organs. It includes the bones and connective tissues such as liganments and tendons.
Starter Kit Oils- Pan Away, Copaiba, Lavender and Thieves
Future Must Haves- Wintergreen, Oregano, BLM and Super Cal
Circulatory System: This system supplies oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells and removes waste products. It includes the heart and network of vessles that carry blood.
Starter Kit Oils-Stress Away, Lavender, Thieves and RC
Future Must Haves-Marjoram, Cypress, Grapefruit, Helichrysum, Longevity and NingXia Red
Nervous System: This is the body’s main control system. It receives, transmits and integrates information from inside and outside the body. It includes the rain, spinal cord, nerves and sense organs (eyes and ears.)
Starter Kit Oils- Copaiba, Frankincense, Pan Away, Thieves, Stress Away
Future Must Haves- Cedarwood, Nutmeg, Tranquil Roll-on Mindwise, MegaCal and NingXia Nitro
Immune System: This system protects the body against infection and collects fluid from the tissues and returns it to the blood. It includes the lymph glands and vessels, spleen, thymus and tonsils.
Starter Kit Oils- Lemon, Copaiba, Purification, Frankicense and Thieves
Future Must Haves-NingXia Red, Citrus Fresh, Lime, Inner Defense and Sulfurzymes
That concludes the review on six of the body systems. The lists of oils and products I provided are in no way exhaustive. That is one of the great beauties of Young Living essential oils. The Seed to Seal commitment guarantees us every drop of oil has a complete set of molecules. For you, that means that one oil can have many different uses. Each of our bodies is unique so what works beautifully for one person may not be as effective for the next person. Have fun and experiment with the oils to learn what works best for you and your family.
