Ahh, RutaVaLa Think Sleep…Relaxation… the Easing of Tension…
RutaVaLa promotes relaxation of the body and mind. It helps ease tension and relieve stress. The blend helps overcome negative feelings while encouraging a positive attitude and comfort.
Unique to Young Living, RutaVaLa is a proprietary blend of Ruta graveolens (rue), lavender, and valerian essential oils. Although lavender and valerian are well known for their sedative properties, this blend introduces the less recognized, yet efficacious, ruta oil. The Ruta graveolens herb is farmed, harvested, and distilled at Gary Young’s farm in Ecuador.
Use of the rue herb dates back many centuries and is referenced in the Bible as an herb to be tithed. When combined with lavender and valerian, this trio of essential oils is formulated to relax the body and mind, counter stressed nerves, and revitalize passion.
- Acts as a relaxant for the body and mind and counters stressed nerves*
- Rebalances energy to improve vigor during daily activities*
- Reduces inhibitions and minimizes stressful situations*
- Induces quality sleep*
History and Lore:
Rue is one of the ingredients used in the Vinegar of the Four Thieves. The Four Thieves were a family of perfumers who robbed the dead during the Black Plague and were protected by this antiseptic concoction that included rue.
Complementary Essential Oils: Peace and Calming®, White Angelica ™, and clary sage. Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is Ruta graveolens oil safe?
A. Yes; Ruta (rue) oil is a very different chemical composition than the Ruta graveolens herb itself. The herb or water extracts from the herb can have negative effects at very high dosages. Ruta oil is composed primarily of ingredients that are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) according to the FDA.
Q. Should RutaVaLa be used as a dietary supplement?
A. No; RutaVaLa should only be used aromatically as indicated in the How to Use section.
Q. Should RutaVaLa be used topically?
A. No; Ruta oil contains a photosensitizing compound. Caution should be used when applying topically to skin that will be exposed to sunlight within 12-24 hours.
I’ve been battling insomnia for years I’ve been battling insomnia for years. I’ve tried almost every sleeping/anti-anxiety drug known to man, and they either don’t work, or I’d wake up feeling drowsy or find myself with other side effects. My problem is both falling to sleep and staying asleep. Honestly I didn’t expect anything from RutaVaLa, considering I had developed a dependency on Ambien which caused it to stop working. But my massage therapist highly recommended at least trying it. It took a few days of my sticking with the Rutavala, but on night three I got into bed, felt myself sink into the mattress, and the next thing i knew my alarm was going off. i couldn’t have been more shocked — I think i actually got out of bed and said “no way”.

I slept without waking once! I ordered this oil, specific for use with RSD as it is an overfiring of the sympathetic nerves. I was horrified by the smell of it! But applied to my brain stem, down the back of my neck, on my temples, wrists and feet! Then I proceeded to deep inhale the remaining on my hand. For the first time in years, I slept without waking once! I’ve been using it nightly since and sleeping great. Thank-you, Thank you! Blessings, Cheryl
Don’t give up on Ruta if you don’t like the smell, it is a fabulous oil. The first time I smelled Ruta, it smelled like a dumpster to me. I was in some severe stress. I immediately knew it was vital to start using it. I put two drops on my brain stem (medulla oblongata) at the back of my head consistently 3x a day for a week. On the second day of smelling it, it smelled like a dumpster with rotten meat in it and I knew the toxins were trying to divert me from using it. On the third day, I started to smell flowers and now RutaVaLa smells SOOOOO lovely to me. When the scent shifts from a distasteful one to one that you like, your body has utilized the oils and may be in the healing state. Don’t give up on Ruta if you don’t like the smell, it is a fabulous oil. You can put it on your feet if you don’t wish to smell it all day. When an essential oil has an unpleasant smell, whether that is a musty or dank smell or sickly sweet, that is an indication that our body may require that oil. The response our body displays, disliking the smell, is a defensive mechanism from the toxins in our body. The oils vibrate at a much higher frequency than the toxins and as soon as we smell the oils, they are already acting upon the toxins. In response, the toxins send the message to the brain “Stop smelling that, we don’t want to be displaced.” Sheila H., LMT, CR, RM, BCRS
