What Are Essential Oils
Are they magical potions or are they scientifically helpful?
Essential oils are the lifeblood of a plant. They help plants to fight off attackers of any kind – be it an animal, seasonal changes, climate conditions – you name it.
Plants don’t have sharp teeth or fists to defend themselves, so this part of the plant gives it its edge, if you will.
When these plants are grown in the right conditions, harvested at the correct time, and distilled with the utmost care (you can read more about Young Living's Seed to Seal process here) they can aid in keeping our bodies healthy, well, and happy - which is how our bodies were intended to be.
Essential oils are composed of teeny molecules. These molecules so small that they can pass through our tissues and directly into our cells. Our systems are super effective and can transport these molecules all over our bodies within a matter of minutes.
Not All Oils Are Created Equal
A lot of people ask me why Young Living oils are more expensive than the essential oils they could buy at the health store or mall. There is a huge difference in quality of the oil inside of those little bottles. One thing that is mind blowing is how easy it is for other essential oil brands to have misleading “100% pure” labels - yet contain synthetic fillers and additives. Pretty crazy! Young Living is the ONLY company that grows its own plants from start to finish, and owns their own farms, with the strictest standards around.
