What the heck are essential oils?

So you may have heard about essential oils from a friend or on the internet. You may be wondering what the heck are essential oils? Why do I need essential oils? What do you use them for?  I use to be in that same place! I had heard about essential oils from different friends over the years but never really gave it a second thought. Earlier this year I started seeing more about essential oils online and got curious. So I started getting more info about them from some friends. Then in October I decided to dive in even though I didn’t know (still don’t know about every single oil out there) about how to use my oils!! But I have wonderful friends who helped me learn about my oils. So here I am using essential oils every day and loving every single one!! I can’t wait to buy different ones to try! Young Living has such a huge selection.


Okay. To start off, Young Living Essential Oils are therapeutic grade which means they are 100% pure and derived straight from the plant. They contain the plant’s own immunity, hormones, and scents. When oils are pure, they have the ability to work with your body, not against it, to bring about change in your health. Within 20 minutes of applying oils, they can be found in every cell of your body.

So, you might be wondering how they extract these oils. To put it simply, oils are distilled from the “life blood” of plants. With most oils, the plant is harvested, then ground in order to be distilled over low heat and long periods of time. After the oil has separated from the water, it is then bottled, tested for purity and shipped straight to your door! These God-given tools were intelligently created to benefit our entire body. What a gift!

So now we know what essential oils are but how can I use them? There are three ways that you can use them!

Receiving the benefits of the oils via smell. Opening the bottle, cupping your hand over, and taking a deep breath. Also, DIFFUSING!
Applying oils on the skin, either diluted or undiluted! Our skin is our biggest absorbent organ, and an amazing way to get the benefits of oils into our body. Within 20 minutes of applying, the oil can be found in EVERY cell of your body– powerful stuff!
Via capsule, dropping in water + drinking, or putting under the tongue. Great for immune + digestion supporting oils!!

We use our oils in each of these ways every day!! I’d say our top 2 favorite oils that come in the premium starter kit is:
+Thieves ( Amazing for boosting your immune system )
+Lavender (Helps support your sleep )

There is SO much more info about Young Living essential oils!! But I don’t want to overwhelm you! These oils are my best friends! I couldn’t imagine life without them!
