Boost Your Immunity with the Raindrop Technique
Raindrop therapy, also called Raindrop Technique, is an aromatherapy massage technique created by Gary Young, the founder of Young Living Essential Oils. It is performed on clients by applying a undiluted essential oils to the skin.
In Young Living’s words,
“The Raindrop Technique® is a unique practice based on methods that have been used for centuries to rejuvenate the body and mind. The Raindrop Technique helps bring balance and harmony to the body by combining targeted massage and distinctive energy approaches. It also includes pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils to create an atmosphere of spirituality and serenity.”
The Raindrop technique involves the application of ten specific essential oils. These essential oils have been clinically tested to have immunity boosting, antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The oils are worked into the spine using light finger strokes, stimulating energy impulses and dispersing the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body. This helps bring the body into balance and the energy centers can be cleared and re-aligned.
Aromatherapy massage will also help to reduce spinal inflammations and kill viruses that hibernate along the spinal column. By stimulating the central nervous system, you affect every system in the body including emotional release and support.
The following essential oils are commonly used for this technique:
Valor: helps Balance and Re-align the Energy Centers of the Body. It is made up of a blend of four oils: rosewood, blue tansy, frankincense, and spruce.

Blue Tansy is used for its antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties. Frankincense is used for its ability to lift the negative effects of despair and stress by stimulating parts of the brain.
