It is not definitely known when Young Living will have Valor back in stock and there is no guarantee they will not run out of their supply at some future time. Some have been using White Angelica and other substitutes in place of Valor, but you may want to consider making your own approximation of Valor.
Valor is a blend of approximately 15 parts Spruce, 7 parts Frankincense, 6 parts Blue Tansy, and 2 parts Balsam Fir, in an Almond (or Coconut) Oil base, with the carrier making up about 20% (7 drops) of the blend. Proportions for Valor are given in the "Essential Oil Integrative Medical Guide," by D. Gary Young, as the "Energy Balance Blend," but that source does not mention a carrier oil, which is a key ingredient to bring the frequency into resonance with the spine, joints, and bones as does Valor. The "Integrative Medical Guide" also mentions Rosewood as an ingredient, but that is not available from Young Living, at this time, and won't be again until their supply in South America has been re-established, which may or may not be soon.
All of the oil constituents of Valor, except for Rosewood and the correct species of Spruce, are available from Young Living at this time. Spruce (Picea mariana) is not currently available, which is why YL is temporarily out of Valor until the 2014 crop is harvested and distilled. Young Living does have Idaho Blue Spruce (Picea pungens) which is a different, but similar, species. A substitute for Valor (sans Rosewood) may be formed by the above formula and substituting the Idaho Blue Spruce.
This will work until Young Living has real Valor back in stock. No one should live without Valor. Hopefully, Young Living will have Valor back in stock soon.
