It’s been a year and a half since this precious little bottle of liquid gold has been available, but the long wait is over! Welcome back, Valor, we’ve missed you!
For those who aren’t familiar with why this is such a huge deal, let me first explain why it’s been our of stock for so long. At first it was out of stock because Blue Tansy is in short supply and is a staple in many of our favorite YL blends. Young Living got a batch of Blue Tansy in about a year ago and it would have been enough to put Valor back into stock for 6 months – until the harvest. When they tested it, however, it tested high for a constituent not ever found in Blue Tansy in nature.
Gary Young said that he could have spun this component out of the Blue Tansy and made Valor anyway, and we would have never known the difference. But being who he is, he refused to compromise his standards, even though Young Living loses over $100 million a year when Valor is out of stock!
Then Young Living realized just how endangered one of the other components, Rosewood, has become, and didn’t want to be responsible for the complete deforestation of the species. (Rosewood has been illegally logged and transported out of its home countries for the past few years to the tune of billions of dollars because it’s prized for its pink color and used in Ming Dynasty furniture replicas).
Because Rosewood is endangered and was no longer a viable option to source responsibly, Gary spent a lot of time reformulating Valor to match it to its original formulation. Rosewood was removed and Camphor Wood (also known as Ho Wood) and Geranium were added, and the rest of the oils in the blend are exactly the same as before. The oils used in it are designed to keep Valor the way it was intended to be.
The essential oils in this blend bring your body and mind into balance, helping to increase your courage, eliminating fears and doubts. Breaking old patterns and behaviors is often the hardest but this blend helps you take the first step. When the body, mind and spirit are aligned, we are able to open and release emotional barriers that are keeping us stuck.
We use Valor for great sleep because of how it helps to calm our minds and for feelings of bravery (hence the name, Valor). We use it in big days, for helping our little ones to do what scares them, for turbulent flights and public speaking and hard but needed conversations, and for all other things that require a bit of courage on our part.
We also use it for maintaining good alignment in our bodies, for keeping our heads feeling as good as they should, for LIFE, really! I like to call it “liquid courage” and it’s also often referred to as “chiropractor in a bottle.” These are just a few of the reasons why we are SOOOOOO excited that it’s BACK!
