What are essential oils?

   What exactly are essential oils?-


We actually “use” essential oils in our everyday lives.  They are used to flavor foods and can be found in things like toothpaste and mouthwash.  Oils are also in perfumes, skin care products, candles, and laundry detergents.  They are many places that you wouldn’t guess but not all oils are created equally.  These oils found in foods, cosmetics, and scented products are typically synthetic.  Synthetic oils are typically made from petrochemicals in a lab and are created to try and duplicate the smell and properties of a plant.  When you are ingesting or applying something that is synthetic, your body processes it as a toxin, therefore it becomes harder to break down or can be stored in fat cells.  These types of synthetic oils work against your body and can be very harmful!
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!


about Young Living-

Young Living has been a pioneer in essential oil research for the last 20 years.  They submit their oils to AIRAISE, a third party company to test each batch for purity.  They own their own farms all across the globe which gives them control over not only the outcome of the oils but also the soil they have been planted on, the way they are distilled, and the team behind the crops.  Every oil that has come from outside of YL’s crops has been rigorously tested for purity.  We call the oils “beyond organic” because they ensure that no pesticides have ever been used on the crops or on the soil.  Any time you want to visit Young Living’s farms, you are welcome.  They have an open door policy.  And you are able to participate in the harvesting and distilling process of the oils throughout each season.  These oils are therapeutic grade and do not have an expiration date!
