Cistus Essential Oil -
In Touch with the Senses

Cistus Essential Oil has soft, fruity smell with honey overtones. I like the smell of the oil, but many don’t! Whether you like the smell or not, it is calming and uplifting oil that stimulates the five senses.

Experience Cistus Essential Oil

What is the Genus Species? Cistus ladanifer. It is commonly referred to as Labdanum, Rose of Sharon or Rock Rose.

Why is this Information Important? There are over 20 species of Cistus. Some of the species are not suitable for therapeutic use, and often times the species are substituted or intertwined.

This is particularly true when a plant such is this is referred to by so many common names. So, it is always best to order essential oil by the common name and the genus species, so you know what you are getting!

What is the Origin of the Plant Name? Cistus comes from a Greek word “kistos” meaning “evergreen shrub” The word ladanifer is derived from “ledon” meaning “dark resin”. Dark resins are where chewing gum came from in ancient times!

Why is this Information so Important? Its not, it’s just a fun fact!

What Part of the Plant is Used? Leaves and branches.

What is the ORAC Value? 3,860 µTE/100g

What Does this Number Mean? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item.  This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Oranges = 750; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!

Most Interesting Historical Reference?

Did you know that the uses of Cistus, or Rock Rose were first noticed by shepherds thousands of years ago? Yes, sheep and goats grazing in the fields would pick up the gum of the shrub in their coats.

What are the Plant Properties? Relaxing and releasing.

What are the Documented Uses and Benefits of Cistus Essential Oil? Supports one in being in touch with their senses.

What is the Aromatic Affect on the Mind? Its soft and fruity aroma is calming and releasing.

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?

Cistus essential oil is spiritual oil and has been used for centuries for meditation. It opens the third eye and promotes inner vision.

It helps quiet the mind and may calm nervous flow. It also stimulates the five senses: touch, feeling, hearing, sight and taste.

It will assist those who need to be constant rescuers to the point where they exhaust and drain there own chi (energy source). And don't understand that by draining their own life blood, they can't give to others, and can't.

What Chakra is Affected? Promotes opening of the solar plexus chakra. Opens the third eye when placed on the forehead and used during meditation.

What is the Corresponding Chakra Color? Gold-brown.

How Do I Use It?

Use NEAT (undiluted). Then,

  • Apply several drops (2-4) on location
  • Apply to chakras
  • Directly inhale
  • Diffuse

Can this Oil be Used for Animals? Yes, but usually use it in one of my favorite professionally blended oils ImmuPower. I have used this blend at the barn for the horses and for my dog.

Note About Animal Use: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Pine and citrus oils in particular that are not of therapeutic grade! Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils when wanting best results!

Cistus Essential Oil is approved by the FDA as a Food Additive (FA) and Flavoring Agent (FL). Possible skin sensitivity.

Although it may be used as a dietary supplement, it is advised not to use it in this manner for children under 6 years of age.

If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.
