Dear Readers,

Be sure to scroll down for some upcoming speaking events.

Unforgiveness is a new emotion (not in the 2018 Edition of Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils ). This month I discuss unforgiveness and Forgiveness essential oil.

This month I present Pure-Light light bulbs, which have impressed me with their positive environmental and emotional effects.

Liver body types have a stocky, strong body with slender legs, and are known for being helpful and dependable. This month we look at what's unique about the Liver body type.

As always, I hope and trust that these newsletters help you enjoy a happier, healthier life.

Health and Happiness,
Dr. Carolyn Mein

Easy Environmental Detox with Pure-Light
Super Oxygen Light Bulbs

Rarely do I find an everyday item that has as many health benefits as these light bulbs do. Besides being energy-efficient due to their LED technology, they clean and de-odorize your home or office in ways traditionally possible only with harmful UV (ultraviolet) lights. They also:
  • Break down 99.9% of bacteria, virus, and mold
  • Break down indoor air pollutants
  • Dissolve pollen and other allergens
  • Destroy odors without masking them with fragrances
  • Use 70% - 90% less energy than traditional bulbs
  • Emit “happy light” – full spectrum white light
  • LED’s last at least 10 years – don’t require replacement like traditional bulbs
  • Fit standard light bulb sockets

What It Does

These are LED light bulbs that fit standard (A19) light bulb sockets, recessed “can” lights (BR30 4-inch), and fluorescent tube lights (T8 48-inch). They provide a full-spectrum white light without flicker. In addition to replacing standing light bulbs, the Pure-Light Technology will purify and sanitize air that passes within 8-12 feet of the bulb, as well as nearby surfaces.

Saves Money – these are LED bulbs that can replace the output of a 60 Watt incandescent bulb while only using 9.5 Watts of energy, an 84% energy savings. Plus, unlike incandescent bulbs, they are rated to last at least 13 years. In most cases, these light bulbs pay for themselves.

Sanitizes – the bulbs create a hypo-allergenic space by breaking down pollen and other allergens, as well as indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, methane, and benzine. They also break down 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and mold. They produce the benefits of UV lighting without the UV rays which are harmful to humans

De-odorizes – the bulbs destroy odors in the air, instead of masking them with fragrances

Uplifts – many suffer from SAD (Seasonally Affected Depression) during winter months in particular, when less sunlight is available. Unlike conventional indoor lighting, these bulbs deliver a full-spectrum white light that helps overcome SAD.

How It Works

The technology enabling Pure Light to deliver so many benefits originated with NASA. A special coating of titanium dioxide reacts with light to produce two super oxygen molecules called superoxides and hydroxyl ions.

Superoxides are produced by white blood cells and are used by the immune system to kill invading microorganisms. Superoxides are also used in diver and fireman breathing systems.

The hydroxyl ion exists in the atmosphere and acts as a more efficient “air detergent” than ozone. Specifically, it reacts with many pollutants called VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). It also attacks the porous cell walls of bacteria and viruses, destroying them using a process called cell lysing. This does not harm human, animal and plant cells, which have less porous walls.

The light bulbs will purify the air as it passes within 8-12 feet of the bulb itself. It will also affect nearby surfaces and fixtures.

3rd Rock Sunblock
All-Natural Protection Against UV-A and UV-B

On the topic of UV rays, and with summer still in full swing, I'd like to remind you about 3rd Rock Sunblock.

UV-A rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin's thickest layer. Unprotected exposure can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging), and suppression of the immune system. UV-B rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer.

Most sunscreens protect against UV-B but not UV-A. 3rd Rock Sunblock, invented by an Australian surfer (with a PhD in Chemical Engineering), protects against both UV-A and UV-B. It's made from all-natural ingredients and is non-toxic. Its formulation includes essential oils which nourish the skin.

3rd Rock Sunblock is available on my website.

Are You a LIver Body Type?

Do you place a high priority on family, loyalty and stability? Are you known as the one your friends and family can always rely on? Do you have great physical endurance and the resilience to see projects through to completion? Then you may be a Liver body type.


Celebrities with Liver body type include Princess Diana, John Bradshaw, Bette Midler, Alec Baldwin, and Dave Grohl.

Are you a Liver body type? You might be, if:
  • You need to be needed and enjoy being there for others
  • You are considered to be consistent, reliable, dependable, supportive, patient and considerate
  • You are the one your friends and family can always count on
  • You have great physical endurance and are resilient in seeing projects through to completion
  • You place high priority on family, loyalty and stability
  • You have an emotional nature, and being supportive of or supported by others provides the motivation to learn what life presents

If this describes you, you could be a Liver body type.


Women having the Liver body type have a strong, solid body with a sturdy appearance and dense, solid musculature. They have a broad, thick torso with narrow hips and slender legs. Weight gain can occur in the upper body (abdomen, waist, back and hips), as well as upper thighs.

Liver body type men have a solid, thick, stocky appearance with thick, heavy musculature. They have a thick, straight torso with slender legs. The neck is short and thick, with a tendency to have a double chin. They can attain muscular definition in the torso with a basic workout program. Weight gain begins as solid musculature in the abdomen and around the waist.


Just as the liver is in charge of converting nutritional substances into usable forms and filtering out what can't be used, Liver body types are noted for putting pieces together and fitting them into the flow of the day or project. Placing a high priority on family, loyalty, and stability, they excel at helping with whatever needs to be done. They create the desire that, when coupled with their tremendous physical strength, results in accomplishment. Teaching, often through leadership, is their way of ensuring that the knowledge gained by one generation can flow to the next.

Personality, Relationships & Career

Liver body types are kind, patient, considerate, and people-oriented. They are known for being dependable and consistent.

They are physically strong and resilient, and able to see things through to completion. They enjoy seeing the physical results of their efforts.

Liver body types have excellent organizational skills and are attentive to detail. They like to put things together so that they flow. Teaching provides them with a sense of fulfillment, because it gives to others, while providing the experience of feeling valuable and important.

The primary nature of Liver body types is Emotional / Physical. (Read more about these Points of Connection here.)


The primary benefit of exercise for Liver body type is that it burns calories. Exercise helps their emotional state besides cleansing the body. Abdominal muscular definition is achievable with basic exercise programs. Best when there is a fluidity of movement, such as in dance, jazzercise, callanetics, walking, and downhill skiing. Exercise machines, weights, and bicycling are moderately effective.

For more on exercising specifically for your body type, see the August 2017 Newsletter.

Health Concerns

Liver body types have strong, sturdy, healthy bodies with good stamina and endurance. Problems generally involve musculoskeletal system with injuries involving joints and sore or sensitive muscles.

Nutrition, Diet & Weight

Liver body types are best with lunch as the largest meal. Foods are best assimilated when eaten in combinations. Emphasize rotation & variety. May include gravies & sauces. Include more raw than cooked vegetables. Garlic supports immune system. Emotional support from others is important to overall well-being.

The Liver body type is one of the body types that cannot successfully follow a vegetarian diet. For more about body type and vegetarianism, see the February 2018 Newsletter.

To lose weight: eliminate salt; avoid chocolate, sodas and alcohol. Exercise daily. Have emotional support.

Complete nutritional information including food lists for the Liver body type can be found on the Liver Quick Reference Card.

Core Emotional Issues

Each of the 25 body types encounters certain core emotional issues or lessons to overcome in life. For Liver, these are:
  • Anger - released with Purification essential oil, "My direction is clear", transmutes to Laughter
  • Rejection - also released with Purification essential oil, "I accept all that I am", transmutes to Acceptance
  • Failure - released with Peppermint essential oil, "I accept growth", transmutes to Unfoldment

New Emotion: Unforgiveness
Releasing Unforgiveness with Forgiveness Essential Oil

D. Gary Young created an oil blend he called Forgiveness for the purpose of forgiving. Forgiveness is the first oil and the first step in the Feelings Collection. More information on using Forgiveness in the Feelings Collection can be found in the October 2017 newsletter.

The emotions associated with the oil Forgiveness are: Betrayal, Bitterness, Distrust, Past-fear of repeating, Revenge, and Self-Denial. The obvious emotion that is missing is Unforgiveness.

Forgiveness is a fundamental step in civilized life in society. All the religious and spiritual teachings talk about it, psychology emphasizes it, and unforgiveness can take a toll on your health. The question is, how do you move from unforgiveness to forgiveness?

The responses I received when I posed this question to people included gratitude, admiration, understanding, acceptance, dropping judgements, compassion, respect, trust to forgive. Letting go of hurt, anger, resentment and/or a desire for revenge. Taking personal responsibility for one’s part in the situation, setting boundaries, feeling the internal resistance melt, yield, an inner knowing of who we truly are and who the others are. Surrendering fear to Love, Love is for giving and giving and giving, forgiving through love.

Edgar Cayce has a prayer for dealing with difficult people, “Dear God, he/she is thine as I am thine, do that which will bring peace and harmony between us. I bless you and release you. Amen.” The active element here is “I Bless you.” When we think of Unforgiveness, we usually think of other people, the reality is the most significant person in the equation is generally not forgiving ourselves. Unforgiveness can also extend into a situation or experience. The way to move from Unforgiveness to Forgiveness is “I bless _______.” The essential part is “I bless”, filling in the blank allows you to be more specific and amplify the affirmation.

The essence of everyone’s responses is to bless.

The alarm point for Unforgiveness is the Blood Pressure point on the center of the anterior biceps muscle of the arms. For further description, see Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils.

Body types where Forgiveness is an essential oil for a core emotional issue are Hypothalamus and Pancreas for Betrayal and Gallbladder for fear of repeating the Past.

Forgiveness is an essential oil blend, which was formulated to help one release negative memories, negative emotional barriers, hurt feelings, insults, betrayal, distrust, repeating the past, revenge and self-denial. It allows attainment of higher awareness by assisting to forgive and let go. The fear of repeating the past is stored in the gallbladder, making it a useful oil for anyone with gallbladder issues.

Forgiveness is a blend containing Rose, Melissa, Helichrysum, Angelica, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Lavender, Bergamot, Geranium, Jasmine, Lemon, Palmarosa, Roman Chamomile, Rosewood and Ylang Ylang.

How to Use:
  • Diffuse, directly inhale, or add 2-4 drops to bath water
  • Apply 1 to 2 drops behind ears, on wrists, neck, temples, navel, solar plexus, or heart
  • Dilute 1 part oil to 15 parts vegetable oil for a full body massage
  • Put 4-8 drops on cotton ball and locate on vents

NOTE: Possible skin sensitivity. Avoid contact with eyes.
