What Are Essential Oils & Why I Choose Young Living

Essential oils have dramatically changed my whole family’s lives for the better. They support every system in our body and have helped us with sleep, emotional health, immune support, fitness, spiritual, overall wellness, and the quality of life in our home. I wasn’t always into essential oils, read my story here how I got into using them to help lead a more natural healthier lifestyle.

Every plant has essential oils and are the life blood of the plant. They are distilled from: shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, fruit, rinds, resins, herbs. Their essential oils are tiny molecules smaller than cells & viruses and fit into our cells like tiny puzzle pieces. They can penetrate faster than any modern medicine and consist of hundreds of natural organic compounds.

Imagine modern medications are big molecules that bump around in the body and must perfectly wiggle their way into a receptor cell like wired headphones going into a headphone jack. Essential oils carry a frequency. They are much like your Bluetooth headphones. If you have the Bluetooth setting on your phone and you are in range, they automatically connect. When essential oils come close to a cell and are attracted to it. This makes it so easy for your body to use essential oils in a therapeutic way.

Essential oils are all around us in trees and flowers. If you go outside, you will literally be surrounded by essential oils! They aren’t as weird as some people think. The average American spends 93% of their time indoors. By bringing in the powerful properties of plants inside our homes with oils and a diffuser you can start eliminating the toxins inside and no green thumb is needed.

By eliminating unsafe products like shampoos, conditioners, lotions, face care products, air fresheners, candles, and cleaners, we can decrease a major load on our body. Let’s pay a little more attention to not only what goes in our body but also to what we use on it. Essential oils are a wonderful God given option to help with having a more natural lifestyle.

Young Living is hands down the world’s leader in essential oils and stand out above the rest. Their Seed to Seal guarantee and promise is why I choose them over any other company.

  • They own their own farms, which no other major company does. They have sister and partner farms that must abide by the same standards.
  • They won’t plant on soil that has had been in contact with ANY chemicals within 50 years. (Organic standards are only five years)
  • They pick the absolute best seeds from strong thriving plants.
  • They hand weed and use their own oils on plants for pest control to avoid toxic chemicals.
  • They harvest at peak times.
  • They distill on site without chemicals.
  • YL tests every batch multiple times. If a batch doesn’t meet their standards for any reason, they do not bottle the oil up to distribute. They would rather have something go out of stock than let an inferior product slip through to us. It’s rare to find a company with such high standards.

All these factors make a huge difference in quality and effectiveness of essential oils. Most essential oils are sold more cheaply because companies cut corners, so they get more profit and you get less essential oils!These oils are VERY different than oils you get in the store. These are 100% pure therapeutic grade. There are no regulations on oils so the ones in stores could have as low as 5% pure oil, so you are buying a bottle of fillers. They will be cheaper but also way less effective. There is a night-and-day difference that you will be able to tell instantly. Trust me, I’ve tried the grocery store oils and I’m so thankful I found Young Living, there’s no comparison!
