It’s by far one of the biggest conventions on essential oils by Young Living in Singapore to date. I was there early in the morning at 10 am and there were people streaming in and filling up the hall at Suntec Convention Centre Expo. Should I say that Singaporeans are very much into essential oils?
I’m glad to know that more people are starting to discover the benefits of aromatherapy and natural essential oils. I do know that there are communities, which are part of the wellness movement, are growing in Singapore.
I was greeted with the pleasant scent of natural essentials as I entered the hall. The scent was uplifting and it is amazing how scents could affect your mood in an instant. I, myself, have a mini collection of essential oils which I used it to make my own skincare products. Thus, I was pretty excited to learn more about Young Living essential oils during this event which was held a couple weeks back.
I love attending workshops but it’s where I get to learn and absorb as much knowledge as I could. During RevOILution, I signed up for their yoga workshop which incorporates the use of Young Living essential oils. They gave us some calming essential oil blends which would help uplift and warm up our bodies up in the morning. It was such a pleasant and enjoyable yoga session which involves all the five senses.
There are other fringe activities like Speed Oiling where you get to be acquainted with the top 10 most versatile essential oils and top favourites in Singapore in 10 minutes. Get a good whiff of the scent and train your nose to distinguish the different essential oils! Through the session, I could tell that the essential oils are of excellent quality because the oils smell pure and it doesn’t leave that bitter artificial scent which some other essential oils of poorer quality would have.
You could also plant some peppermint plants where you’re there! Young Living is also practising sustainability in its business practice. They carry out projects on reforestation of harvested trees and construction of their brand new LEED-certified headquarters in Lehi, Utah. That’s how they show respect to Mother Earth.
The uses of essential oils are countless. Essential oils can not only enhance your spiritual and physical wellness but it can also purify your home and refine your beauty routine. Instead of relying on detergents which are laden with harsh chemicals to remove stains, you could actually use essential oils with antifungal properties to clean your home. You will be surprised that essential oils could help to polish countertops, wash sticky hands and clean your laundry. Young Living’s Thieves has cleverly incorporated the use of their proprietary Thieves® essential oil blend into their cleaning home products.
Thieves® products are toxin-free, plant-based and vegan-friendly. It is a powerful blend of clove, eucalyptus radiata, cinnamon bark, lemon and rosemary. Lemon is used for its natural ability to act as a natural solvent and cleanser. And Cinnamon bark is used for its ability to eliminate odour. Together, they make a powerful blend of essential oil for making home cleaning products.
Besides essential oils, Young Living also offers healthy beverages and snacks like Ningxia Red beverage and this wolfberry crisp whole-food bar. Wolfberry is its main ingredient and it was so addictive! The bars were delicious and I wonder if they had other flavours too.
I also went for their AromaDome therapy where I was brought into another room with the AromaDome tenting system. I was asked to stuck my head in the “tent” and inhale the essential oils for 30 minutes. I get to pick three essential oils which I like and I would inhale each oil for about 10 minutes. It turns out to be a rather relaxing session where I just lie on the bed without doing anything. It’s as good as going for a massage or spa session. Inhaling deeply and slowly is one of the best ways to relax your body too.
RevOILution should be back next year and I look forward to more workshops and other interesting fringe activities. It’s like a mini-retreat for me. See you then!
