What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the lifeblood of plants. It’s what makes them thrive. They've been used for hundreds of years to support physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.
Young Living takes only the healthiest of their crop extracts the oils through careful steam distillation, resin tapping or cold pressing. They then run a whole hosts of tests to measure the quality of each chemical constituent present in the oil.
This proprietary process is known as their “Seed to Seal” promise and it's what sets them apart from the rest.
How do you use them?
There are three ways of using oils in your daily life.
Simply breathe them in, either by applying to your hands and cupping over your nose, using a diffuser to disperse into the air or by inhaling straight from the bottle.
Our sense of smell is the strongest of the senses. Tests have shown oils can reach the liver, heart and thyroid in 3 seconds once inhaled, entering the olfactory system and directly-impacting our brains. Its our favorite way to use oils to support our emotional wellness!
Your skin is your largest organ and what we put on it enters our bloodstream in less than a minute! This isn't new science - think about topical progesterone creams, birth control or nicotine patches - but this means what we put on our skin MATTERS.
A quality vegetable-based carrier oil will make topical application a breeze (coconut, avocado, grapeseed, etc.). Apply wherever you need support!
Young Living is the only company on the market with a line of oils labeled specifically for ingestion, each of which appear on the FDA's list of Generally Regarded as Safe (for consumption) list. Knowing their purity standards, it's the ONLY reason I would ever suggest ingestion.
Add them to a capsule, your water or apply under your tongue to support everything from a healthy digestion to overall wellness. And of course, look at each bottle's labeling and instructions to ensure safety.
Why Young Living?
This company's oils are like no others because their PEOPLE are like no one else. They hold themselves, their farms and their partners to the highest standard and it shows in everything that they do.
From their commitment to growing plants in their indigenous environments, to their support of communities and people at each of their global farms, to their unprecedented 5x5 pledge (a commitment to take global operations to zero waste status) - Young Living's ethical and social responsibility is unmatched.
We choose Young Living for our family because we trust their quality, we believe in their mission and we support their dedication to leaving the world a better place.
More Than Oils
Essential oils are wonderful tools to support your family's wellness, but for me Young Living has been more than "just oils." Oils were the beginning for me, but this company has been a gateway to a new way of life. A new way of evaluating the products we bring into our home.
With everything from cleaning supplies to makeup to supplements to hair care, skincare, personal care and even CBD products - Young Living truly has something to offer every family. I'm proud of how we love on our babies (fur babies included!) with products we know work and that we know are safe.
