WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are a highly concentrated version of the natural oils in plants.
I like to describe essential oils as powerhouse liquids of awe and wonder.
Essential Oils are the life juice of the plant. It is what circulates through the plant in order to ward off infection/heal/ combat pests, fungi, and bacteria in nature. They are obtained through various distilling processes that use every part of the plant. The extraction methods Young Living uses are: careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing to ensure the purest essential oils.
Essential Oils can provide support to every system of our bodies, including hormones, nervous system, and metabolism. It only takes 2 minutes for oil molecules to hit the bloodstream, and only 20 minutes to affect every cell in your body!
WHY YOUNG LIVING OILS?
Young Living has exceptional quality standards, controlling the process from "seed to seal" to ensure every step is all-natural.
95% of oils out on the market are not therapeutic grade, but rather produced for the food and fragrance industry (i.e many cosmetics, household products, etc.). Companies are cutting corners on production to try to produce more oils, and thus releasing toxins into the oil or destroying some of the important compounds necessary in therapeutic grade oils.
Young Living's oils are therapeutic-grade because there is nothing but pure essential oils in their bottle. Young Living is involved in the entire process from choosing the little tiny seed to distilling and bottling the oils hence their 'Seed to Seal' guarantee.
