WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
They are the most powerful part of the plant! They are carefully distilled (usually by steam) from shrubs, flowers, trees, and more. They provide all kinds of support for the different systems of the human body – skeletal, endocrine, immune, etc. Essential oils are incredibly powerful.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM OILS? WHY?
Absolutely everyone! Not only can they support our various systems, but they can also benefit our emotional well being, too. One of the great benefits is the fact that they can be used to swap out all kinds of yucky chemicals from your home! Did you know what the average person applies 300 different chemicals to their body every single day? That’s A LOT!
Think about your shampoo, dryer sheets, bright blue dish soap, and air freshener plug-ins. Many of these products are filled with things that we can’t even pronounce, and are often harmful to our bodies. Oils are a much safer choice and you can use them to replace potentially harmful products in your home!
YEp, THEY’RE SAFE
Young Living’s oils are pure, powerful, and potent. It’s important to respect them and to use them as directed ! You want to be sure to dilute them as needed – especially for kids. There are all kinds of reference materials (not to mention our awesome oily tribe) that are available to ensure that you’re using your oils to the max, all the while using them safely, too.
We can’t stress enough how crucial it is that oil be of the highest quality! If you think about it, our skin is our largest organ and absorbs everything we apply to it. Because the essential oil industry is mostly unregulated, the vast majority of oils, even those labeled as “pure” or “organic” are only required to be 5% essential oils and the rest can be synthetic filler (toxins). This is often why some oils cost far less and also why we’ve chosen to use Young Living’s oils.
Young Living has a Seed to Seal guarantee, which I’m so grateful! This means that their plants are hand-weeded. They don’t use pesticides, chemicals, or weed killers. All of the plants are harvested at their peak, carefully distilled, thoroughly tested, and then they come to our homes! These superb standards are what gives us complete peace of mind when using Young Living’s oils. We know that what we’re getting is pure and of the utmost quality!

Essential oils are truly amazing. They actually work at a cellular level. The tiny molecules are so small that they’re able to enter our cells! The molecules reach the brain in 22 seconds. They can be found in the bloodstream in 2 minutes. And they will affect every cell in the body in 20 minutes!
