ONE - Oils in the Raindrop Kit: Tips & Secrets…
How do you remember the order of RD?
What are the steps & do you have to do them that way?
Do you have to be a Massage Therapist to apply oils on others?
How often should you use the Raindrop oils?
RCD Frances Fuller came up with an acronym for the Raindrop oil sequence. Valor first then >>> Over The Bay Come With Me And Play!! Valor, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Aroma Siez & Peppermint >>> It has helped me keep the order straight for a long time.
🧐😍 Here is a secret that Gary shared in Ecuador at a hands-on training, “The oils are going to do what the oils are supposed to do no matter what!” That means the oils know exactly what to do when they are applied. They will do their job. It does not matter if I take the time to do all the amazing steps every time. I do not have to be a massage therapist. All I must do is OPEN the bottle & apply the oils!!! 💪🤩 That brought a lot of freedom for me. 🙌🙌🙌
Knowing that I could quickly layer the oils on with zero other steps gave me the freedom to begin doing raindrops more often.
🥰 Don't get me wrong, there is power in having a FULL Raindrop Treatment. Every step adds a powerful addition. A licensed Massage Therapist has a gift of touch & there is power in that too!!! BUT the touch of a momma's hands on their littles, POWERFUL! The touch from a spouse or a friend POWERFUL!!!
Raindrops can be quick & easy >>> I could do a Raindrops on all 4 of my kids every week!!! On Mondays I would layer the Raindrop oils on my son’s feet & back, tuck him in for bed and done in 10 minutes. Tuesdays I would do my oldest daughter. Wednesday I would do the same thing to my middle daughter. Thursday was my youngest. Friday, I did Brian. Saturday, he did me & Sunday we rested. That is freedom!!!
There was no way I could have done all the steps with one family member every night, it just would not happen. Once a week, ONE of the children would get a full RDT. #Facts
The first week of the month their RDT included the Feelings Kit. We wanted to make sure that none of the normal childhood traumas would set, the Feelings oils release the frequency of that trauma. I would also sneak in and pray for them while dropping the oils in the Feelings kit on them if they had a fight with a friend or any other emotional trauma that day. Hurts happen, we do not have to let them stay & take control. 😡😱😭😢
We need the Raindrop oils weekly. We just do!!! Those oils are layered together because each oil adds to the oil layered before it!! Together, each oil is more powerful than any of them alone. So powerful!!!
You can use Raindrops ANYWHERE 🦵💪👏👣👂🧠
You could layer those beautiful oils on your knees, hips or shoulder when they need a little TLC! If you have a spot that is bothering you, layer each oil on every time you feel it. If you are alone, you know you can apply those oils on your feet or even on your back with a Selfie Oil Stick.
🥰 You need the Raindrop Oils at least once a week. How are you going to make that happen?? What are the oils in the Raindrops that you use almost every day & WHY??

THREE - Oils in the Raindrop Kit: Oregano Essential Oil 5ml
I must be honest… oregano is not my favorite oil. It WAS the first oil I ever smelled & it reminded me of dirty feet!!! 🤢
We now have a love hate relationship… I love what it does, but I still hate the smell!!! This is where a truth bomb comes in, READY, “It is not about the smell, it is about what it does to the CELL!” 👈👈Yep. The fact that we LOVE most of the aromas is a bonus. We use oils because they affect every cell in our body!!! 🥰
So here are the facts about my "frenemy" ;)
It is a single essential oil
60 – 75% Carvacrol
ORAC 15,307 (TE/L) = Micromole Trolox Equivalent per Liter
Oregano essential oil is a member of the mint family and is native to areas of western Asia and the Mediterranean.
When applied topically, you will feel it warm & relax your muscles. Applied to your feet, oregano cleans up all the pathways & creates a comforting warm sensation.

FOUR - Oils in the Raindrop Kit: Thyme Essential Oil 5ml
🌱 Thyme essential oil reminds me of fall cooking. Every soup & rub has a little bit of thyme. Think of thyme essential oil as a palate cleanser. It prepares the way for whatever comes next!!!!
🌱 This is one of those oils that has been used for hundreds of years, but gets very little recognition!! The Romans believed that it helped relive stress and reduce restlessness before a big fight.
🌱 Applied topically & diffused, it helps to relax the body and allow the lungs and mind to open. As the body opens, it functions optimally, allowing you to release tension, relive occasional anxiety, and find a peaceful state of relaxation.
🌱 Thyme essential oil also acts as a natural memory booster. Using the oil as part of aromatherapy can help an individual increase concentration and brain power, thus improving work efficiency and creativity. The oil’s stimulation properties not only make it great for improving blood circulation and increasing metabolism, but it can also help promote focus and reenergize the mind.
Thyme is a powerful single essential oil
37 – 55 % Thymol (TE/L)
A solution of thymol (active ingredient) is used in many over the counter mouth wash & vapor rubs due to its purifying agents.
Thyme Oil is a hot oil & may need to be diluted if is becomes to hot on your skin.
It may be beneficial in helping overcome fatigue & exhaustion
It is mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus –16th century BC
When breathed in, it is believed to bring a sense of purpose.
Applied to the feet it clears & stimulates communication pathways
🌱🌱🌱 Did you learn something NEW about thyme essential oil?? Are you going to start applying it to your feet everyday??

EIGHT - Oils in the Raindrop Kit: Marjoram Essential Oil 5ml

Marjoram is very very relaxing to your muscles. It helps your body just take a heavy sigh & relax. 🧘♀️ Think hippy calm! 😂🤣

NINE - Oils in the Raindrop Kit: Aroma Siez™ Essential Oil Blend 5ml
🧬 Aroma Siez™ is a relaxing soothing blend of basil, cypress, marjoram, lavender, peppermint.
🧬 This essential oil blend is invigorating yet calming and can assist with releasing tension in the mind and body. It can also help us let go of negative experiences, and it encourages consistency. Who could use some consistency?? 🙋♀️
🧬 Pop a roller filament in this beautiful bottle & you have a synergistically blended MINI Raindrop in a bottle!!! I see so many recipes for making a Raindrops Roll on, but Gary already made us not one, but TWO options!!!! You will see the second one soon >>>
🧬 Did you know that blending is an art? It matters what oils goes in first. YEP. It matters. I mean anytime you use an oil, it will do great things, but layering each oil and giving it a few seconds to absorb in the skin before you apply the next oil will accomplish something 100% different than using all those same oils added to a bottle. It changes the “calling & frequency” of the oils. When we use a bled that was created for us, it is going to have the RIGHT calling. It will do what it was called to do in our cells.
🧬 I am not against making your own roll ons. I make a lot of personal blends. I like to experiment with the different aromas… but if I need something specifically to TAKE CARE of a situation; I will either layer oils or reach for a blend that was created by a master. Aroma Seize was created for the Raindrop to help the muscles relax & to release built up tension.
🧬 Beautiful synergistic blend of basil, cypress, marjoram, lavender, peppermint
🧬 The oils in the blend work as a powerful TEAM in Aroma Siez!
🧬 Helpful in relief of occasional brain fog
🧬 Amazing for the skin
🧬 Release built up pressure & tension
🧬Soothing for a shoulder, neck, head, back or full body rub
🧬 Mini Raindrop in bottle – Made by the master blender!
▶️▶️▶️ Who needs a Mini Raindrops Roll On!!! Did you know that blend oils changed their frequency??? What are some of your favorite blends??

ELEVEN - Oils in the Raindrop Kit: V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex
Young Living’s V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex can be used to create custom massage oil, roll ons or to dilute essential oils for sensitive skin. This beautiful blend of 7 different vegetable oils works synergistical to sooth tired dry skin.
🧚♀️ It is already used in many of our blends & roll ons. It is so gentle; you can use a few drops to dilute hot essential oils even if those oils get in your eyes. Never use water to dilute hot essential oils. 💦 Water pushes the essential oils in deeper & can cause more pain. V-6 will dilute the essential oils & cool the area. 😍
🧚♂️ This is a great massage oil to use right after a shower for silky sexy skin!!! Since each of these gentle oils work individually to give TLC to the skin you will see lovely results with your skin and its own natural restorative properties!
🧚 All the oils in this blend are high in fat soluble antioxidants. Which means your skin will love them bonus, they do not clog pores!! They just feed those hungry dry cells.
1️⃣ Coconut Oil is predominantly composed of saturated fats, which work to repair your skin’s natural barrier and soak in moisture. By keeping your skin cells hydrated, your skin retains a nice smooth surface. The lauric, capric and caprylic acids that are also in coconut oil’s composition help to fight off any gunk from the day.
2️⃣ Sesame Seed Oil contains fatty acids that help heal the skin and regenerate new cells, which can assist in fading scars. Works as a great addition to any skin care regimen.
3️⃣ Wheat Germ Oil is a natural oil which helps in cleansing the face efficiently. It helps seal moisture back and gets rid of excess sebum, which could lead to other skin problems like acne, pimples, etc.
4️⃣ Grape Seed Oil is rich in linoleic acid, a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cells. They hydrate, moisturize, and soften skin. Linoleic acid protects, strengthens, and gives TLC to cell membranes. It restores tired and aging skin to a natural glow. Linoleic acid also assists in the delivery of vitamins and antioxidants.
5️⃣ Sweet Almond Oil is full of monosaturated fatty acids which help your skin retain moisture and block chapped and irritated skin. This is greatly appreciated by those with oily, dry, and sensitive skin.
6️⃣ Olive Oil was once referred to as “liquid gold” by the Greek poet Homer, it is known to be closer in chemical structure to the skin’s natural oil than any other naturally occurring oil!!! It penetrates and hydrates the skin efficiently and naturally. Olive oil can help balance your skin’s moisture. It has a unique ability to mix well with water helping moisturize the skin without clogging the pores, leaving it smooth and silky.
7️⃣ Sunflower Seed Oil is an abundant source of vitamins E, A, D and C, which are essential components for protecting skin against sun damage, free radicals and locking in hydration to defend us against other daily environmental assaults. Sunflower seed oil contains an impressive family of essential fatty acids— (Omega 6) linoleic, oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids—which science tells us boosts healthy skin activity.
🧚♀️🧚♂️🧚 Hopefully you can see WHY we use V-6 exclusively for all recipes & personal blends. What excited you about our V-6???
