BEGIN YOUR RAINDROP JOURNEY
Young Living's proprietary Raindrop Technique® combines unique, targeted massage with pure, authentic essential oils for a deeply harmonizing, rejuvenating, and relaxing experience.
The technique, developed by Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young, draws from his experience with Native American wellness traditions and provides a revolutionary means of aligning the body and mind.
Because a license is required to perform massage in many states, please check with your state guidelines before performing the Raindrop Technique® on individuals outside your family.
Step 1 | PREPARE
Provide a Calming Atmosphere
Create a relaxing setting with a comfortable temperature, dimmed lighting, and no noises or distractions. Set up a massage table and cover it with a twin-size sheet. Put on an additional sheet to provide coverage and warmth for the recipient.
Set Up Essential Oils
Place essential oils from the Raindrop Technique collection and a bottle of V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex within easy reach. You’ll need these oils, in order:
Though not found in the kit, White Angelica can also be a helpful, though not necessary, part of the technique.
Give the recipient privacy as you ask him or her to remove shoes and socks and to disrobe to the waist. Provide a gown or drape to the recipient, and have him or her lay face-up on the massage table. Apply White Angelica™ to your shoulders and enter the room with a positive mindset.
White Angelica™ is a calming and soothing blend that encourages feelings of protection and security. Key ingredients are bergamot and geranium. (Not included in Raindrop kit.)
Step 2 | BALANCE BODY ENERGY
Hold the recipient’s ankles, then gently pull, stretch, and shake legs to release tension.
Apply Valor II™
Apply 3–6 drops of Valor II to the recipient’s shoulders, then bare feet. Apply 3–6 drops of Valor II in the palm of your right hand and rub on the bottom of the recipient’s right foot. Next, apply 3–6 drops of Valor II to your left hand and rub on the bottom of the recipient’s left foot.
Hold this position for 3–5 minutes or until you feel a connection of energy.
Step 3 | ROLL & RELEASE
Prepare Oil in Left Palm
Begin with Oregano essential oil. Place 2–3 drops onto your left palm, and then circle the fingertips of your right hand around your left palm three times clockwise.
Employ Roll & Release
Using your right hand, grip the recipient’s right foot so that the fingertips rest on the spinal reflex points at the heel while the palm rests on the top of the foot. Roll fingers slowly until nails are flat against the bottom of the recipient’s foot, then back to their original position. Repeat along the entire length of the foot’s spinal reflex points and off the big toe, moving up about ¼ of an inch each time. End with several of these movements with the index finger on the center pad of the big toe.
Prepare Oil in Right Palm
Place 2–3 drops of Oregano essential oil in your right palm and circle the palm with your left fingertips in a clockwise, circular motion. Apply the essential oil with the Roll and Release technique on the left foot using your left hand to grip the foot. Repeat the Roll and Release technique with Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram, and Peppermint, in that order
Step 4 | SPINAL APPLICATION OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Apply 2–4 drops of Oregano to the spine. Divide the back into three horizontal sections and use your fingernails and fingertips to very gently brush up each section three times, following the length the spine and alternating hands as you move. Next, divide the back into two equal horizontal sections and repeat feathering strokes in each section. Alternate hands to perform full-length feathering strokes along the entire length of the spine.
Fan each horizontal section of the back three times by gently brushing the fingernails from the spine up and off the sides of the back. Conclude the fanning sequence by gently brushing the fingernails up from the base of the back, along the entire length of the spine, and up and off the shoulders.
Spinal Application of Oils
Complete the spinal application of essential oils. Click on each essential oil below for application technique:
Apply 2–4 drops to the spine and complete the feathering and fanning sequences.
Apply 2–4 drops to the spine and complete the feathering and fanning sequences.
Apply 3–4 drops of Basil. Complete the feathering and fanning sequence, followed by the Spinal Tissue Pull technique: Place finger pads side by side along the side of the spine at the sacrum and complete three small clockwise motions and pull the muscle tissue toward you and then return to the original position. Move up the spine to the neck using this motion. Repeat the Spinal Tissue Pull on the other side of the recipient’s back. Complete the step a total of three times on each side, alternating the side each time.
Apply 4–6 drops of Cypress. Complete the feathering and fanning sequence, followed by the Finger Straddle technique: Straddle the spine at the sacrum with the index and middle finger and place the bottom edge of the other hand perpendicular, pinky side down, just below the middle joints of the two straddling fingers. Press down with the straddling fingers and saw back and forth with the top hand while pulling the straddling fingers to the hairline. Once at the base of the skull, use the straddled finger to gently pull toward the head three times. Complete the technique a total of three times.
Apply 6–10 drops of Wintergreen. Complete the feathering and fanning sequence, followed by the Thumb Roll: Place both thumbs, 1 inch apart, on either side of the spine at the sacrum. Roll the thumbs so the nails flatten against the bottom of the recipient’s back and roll back to the original position with the pads of the thumb on the recipient’s back. Continue to roll the thumbs lightly, working up the spine in small increments from the sacrum to the base of the skull. Complete the technique a total of three times.
Apply 3–4 drops of Marjoram on each side of the back and 3–4 drops on the spine. Complete the feathering and fanning sequence, followed by the Circle Massage technique: Place the palms of the hands near the sacrum on the right side of the back. Circle the hands in a firm clockwise motion three times, then move two hand widths up and repeat all the way up to the base of the neck. Complete the technique a total of three times.
Apply 3–4 drops of Aroma Siez on each side of the back and 3–4 drops on the spine. Distribute with the feather stroke, complete the feathering and fanning sequence, followed by the Palm Slide technique: Place both palms on the recipient’s back on each side of the spine. One hand should be higher than the other. Slide palms opposite directions, working up the length of the spine. Complete the technique a total of three times.
Apply 3–5 drops of Peppermint to the spine. Complete the feathering and fanning sequence.
Apply 3–5 drops of Valor II™ to the spine. Complete the feathering and fanning sequence.
Step 5 | COMPLETE THE RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
Check for Skin Discomfort
If the recipient is experiencing skin discomfort, use V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex to complete the Raindrop. Dispense two pumps of either V-6 or Ortho Ease into the palm of your hand and gently massage the oil into the recipient’s shoulders and back.
Preform the Occiput Pull
Ask the recipient to lay face-up while you hold the sheet to cover his or her torso and legs. Sit so your shoulders are parallel to the recipient’s shoulders. Place both hands on the back of the head with the pads of the fingers resting on the base of the skull. The recipient’s head should remain on the table. Gently pull the head toward you in a soft rocking motion, so the recipient’s entire body moves toward you. Sustain this motion for one minute and then rest for one minute. Repeat this process two more times.
Optional: Apply White Angelica
Apply White Angelica to the recipient’s shoulders and then place both hands above the recipient’s nose to allow him or her to smell the oil. Allow the recipient to relax for 5–10 minutes and then instruct him or her to drink plenty of water to encourage the detoxification process.

Instruct the recipient to drink plenty of water.
A FEW IMPORTANT NOTES
Everyone will experience the Raindrop Technique® differently, depending on his or her body. Recipients may experience fatigue, increased energy, emotional release, or other short-term effects. Be sure to always provide a safe and supportive space for every experience.
Remember to keep the recipient modest at all times in order to maintain trust and respect.
Keep fingernails clean and well-trimmed.
If essential oils get in the eyes, use V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex to flush, not water.
Offer the recipient plenty of water at the end to help flush toxins.
