Young Living Raindrop Technique® Part I

Guest blogger Debbie Twomey of http://www.debbietwomey.com/


Young Living founder Dr Gary Young created a technique known as Raindrop that combines essential oils with holistic massaging such as Aromatherapy, Vita flex, and Feather stroking. Massaging these therapeutic grade essential oils into the spine neck and feet has benefits for your overall health. This collection provides a revolutionary means of bringing balance and harmony to the body – physically, mentally, and emotionally (Young Living).

 The Raindrop Kit contains: Seven Single Oils (5ml bottles): Thyme, Basil, Peppermint, Oregano, Wintergreen, Cypress and Marjoram. Two Oil Blends (5ml bottles): Valor® & Aroma Siez™. Also contains one 8-oz. bottle of Ortho Ease® Aromatherapy Massage Oil and one 8-oz. V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex. The Raindrop collection also includes an instructional DVD that will teach you how to perform the Raindrop Technique® on others.

Vita-Flex: Vita-Flex is a safe, non-invasive, pressure-point reflexive massage technique using rolling and releasing motions to activate reflex points on the feet, hands, and various areas throughout the entire body. It is particularity effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body.

Aromatherapy: the 7 single, 2 blends and massage oil all blend together undiluted and the aroma effects remain long after massage itself

Feather stroking: a Native American term for the light stroke massage

I found it interesting that the term Raindrop came from how the oils are applied—dropped approximately 6 inches from spine (and other locations) simulating rainfall. That gentle rainfall feeling is quite comforting and brings about a true sense of relaxation.

There are at least 13 phases used to create this Raindrop Technique®:

1. Energy Balancing- Valor® 

2. Vita Flex-Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram and Peppermint

3. Feather Stroke-Oregano and Thyme

4. Circular Massage-Basil

5. Saw Massage-Cypress

6, Thumb Roll Massage-Cypress

7. Flare Feather Stroke-Wintergreen

8. Relaxing Massage  A) Aroma Siez™  B) V-6 blend

9. Energy Balancing- Valor® 

10. Compress

11. Compress Stretch

12. A Neck Stretch

12. B Cranial Hold

13. Neck Flex

I researched many websites for the benefits of Raindrop and none explained it better than Nan Martin’s http://www.experience-essential-oils.com/raindrop-technique.html.

There are numerous benefits of the Raindrop Technique. Here are just a few:

  • Balance and Re-align the Energy Centers of the Body – The combination of techniques brings electrical and structural alignment to the body. The essential oil blend of Valor helps the body align and is often referred to as "chiropractor in the bottle".
  • Non-Manipulative Technique – No manipulation as in chiropractic is performed. The oils help support the body to come back into balance by opening energy flow throughout the body.
  • Reduce Stress and Minor Anxiety – Not only can the oils enhance positive emotions such as joy and happiness, but they can also help us release negative emotions that are subconsciously stored on a cellular level.
  • Aid the Body's Natural Response to Irritation and Injury – Thyme and Oregano support the immune, respiratory, nervous, and other body systems. They are strong antioxidants.
  • Ease Muscle, Bone, and Joint Discomfort – Muscles that are sore, spastic or stressed will also benefit. Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Cypress and Peppermint essential oils reduce tension in muscles. Wintergreen supports healthy bone structure
  • Improve Immune System Functions – Thyme and Oregano essential oils support the immune system; and aid in the release of toxins in the body. This will contribute positively to your overall health and well being.
  • Emotional Well Being and Release – Essential oils cross the blood-brain barrier and effect the limbic system where emotions are stored in the "brain's emotional computer".
  • Help Detox the Body Systems – The oils being high in phenols cleanse cellular receptor sites and enhance the lymphatic system detox of the body.
  • Increase in Height – Yes, most people experience a slight increase in their height! I have seen changes from ½ to 1 inch! This is due to the realignment of the spine and detoxification along the spinal column.
  • And many more!


To understand how this technique works it might help to know what each essential oil if for—either by application, diffusing or ingesting. Remember these are therapeutic grade essential oils produced by Young Living. In my next blog I will share the properties of these amazing oils as well as the recipe for Raindrop Technique® in a roll-on. Though the effects of the Raindrop Technique® are best experienced when given the massage, we can also have the benefit of these blessed oils in a roll-on that we can apply ourselves.
