The Oils

By definition, essential oils are the vital (and aromatic) fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. You can think of the oil as a plant’s “immune system” — it is essential to the lifer and health of the plant. Oils are typically extracted through careful steam distillation that ensures all the important, therapeutic, and health-giving constituents of the oil remain intact.

You may not be aware, but most of the human population uses essential oils in their every day lives. They are used to flavor sodas and are found in things like mouthwash & toothpaste to give it that refreshingly minty kick. Oils are also often found in popular perfumes, hair care and skin care products. But there’s a big difference between these oils that we’re exposed to everyday and the oils I’m sharing about here. Oils found in everyday food, hair products and cosmetics are typically synthetic which means that your body will process it as a toxin. Synthetic oils are not your friend and in fact they may work against your body. Not to mention many of the mainstream products that use synthetic oils contain cancer causing agents, toxic fragrances, and more harmful products. It’s my motto to “Just Say No!” to as many of these products as I can. 

Young Living produces therapeutic grade essential oils. This means they are naturally extracted and pure and that your body will not process them as toxins. These pure essential oils are distilled from the “life blood” of plants and contain the plant’s own immunity, hormones, and scents. 

The process of distilling oils from plants is highly temperamental and takes time. Young Living prides itself on it’s “Seed to Seal” guarantee which means they guarantee the purity and quality of the oils. They make sure that the soil the crops are planted in have never been touched with pesticides or herbicides so that toxins are never present in the plants or in the oils. They go above and beyond to guarantee that every drop of oil in their products is what we call “beyond organic.” 

It has been such a joy to see so many of my friends & family taking charge of their health & wellness with these products. As you’ll soon learn, Young Living goes beyond just essential oils and produces other amazing must haves like cleaning supplies, energy drinks, lotions, shampoos, supplements, makeup, and more! If you’re ready to ditch the chemicals and toxins and take your wellness into your own hands, this is a great place to start!
