All about essential oils

Welcome to the world of essential oils! If you have never explored the oils, you are in for a treat. We will be sharing, well, all you ever wanted to know about essential oils but were afraid to ask!

Essential oil use has absolutely exploded over the past few years. And no wonder. We are all looking for ways to reduce the chemical use in our lives and find more natural options for our families.

We are also looking for ways to thrive in our day and time of fast-paced living. We need something to support our bodies and minds to help us have more energy, to be able to relax more, to support our immune systems and so much more.

So, without further ado, let’s step into the world of essential oils!

 

WHY WOULD I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Where do we even begin? These gems from nature have helped us in so many ways, we can’t even begin to share all of them here! Prepare to have your MIND BLOWN! You are going to LOVE learning more!

These gifts from nature are incredibly potent, powerful AND, at the same time, non-toxic and chemical-free.

(Please note: We are speaking ONLY of Young Living Essential Oils and, really, can only speak for YL oils.  Not all oil brands are made alike and you need to be VERY careful to not only get oils that are chemical AND toxic-free but also prepared in such a way to preserve every ounce of therapeutic benefit from them. Sadly, we can’t trust labeling in the US. We will get to that soon.)

So what can we use the oils for? I’m so glad you asked! Here’s a preliminary list — yep, even this list isn’t exhaustive!

• Energy & Focus
• Relaxation & Sleep
• Immune Support
• Everyday Body Tension
• Happy Digestion
• Stay Happy Oils
• Non-Toxic Cleaners
• Skin Care
• Va Va Voom in the Bedroom
• Keeping Acidity at Bay
• Manifesting

Any of those sound good to you?

(Ummmm…ALL of them?)

Getting into the specifics of how to use the oils for ALL of those Common Concerns is beyond the scope of this post. BUT we have you covered!

If you are interested in learning more specifics about all of those, we have an e-course just for you! Click here for more detailed info on the concerns listed above: Simple Solutions for 10 Common Concerns.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Essential oils are the volatile, aromatic liquids that are found within the seeds, roots, flowers, stems, bark and fruits of plants. They are distilled using steam or a cold-press process, allowing the therapeutic benefit of each essential oil to be maintained in every batch.

The essential oil of a plant is what helps protect it against predators, diseases, insects and environmental conditions. If we use essential oils, they can have a therapeutic benefit for us as well.

Since ancient times, essential oils have been used to support and aid the well being of humans.

HOW DO I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

I’m so glad you asked! This part is one of my favorites. Oils are SO VERSATILE and there are a few ways you can use them.

Using Essential oils

CAN I USE THEM ON MY KIDS TOO?

YES, we use them on our kids and you can, too! We love making DIY recipes to use on our kids since we can ensure all the ingredients are safe. Check out this link to a DIY hair detangler spray: Tame Your Mane.

Young Living is the only brand of essential oil we trust to use with our kids because Young Living is different than the brands you find at co-ops, drug stores or even health-food stores. Read the section below for more details.

WHY WOULD I CHOOSE YOUNG LIVING?

Because it is the best! Okay, while that just might be our opinion, the truth is, the facts are with us. Young Living is a US-based business and has been in business for over 20 years. Most other brands on the market have warning labels instructing, “Do not take internally”, which also means you should not put it on your skin since everything we put on our skin gets into every cell in our body within 20 minutes or inhale it which can get the molecules into your system within 20 seconds.

Young Living is the only essential oil company that controls every step of the production of their oils, we call it the Seed to Seal® process and it truly sets Young Living apart from their competitors.

WHAT IS SEED TO SEAL®?

Now we get to the really good stuff. The reason we trust Young Living and only Young Living for our families. Young Living’s exclusive Seed to Seal process is what guarantees the oil’s purity and makes our essential oils different than any other oils in the world.

Yeah, yeah, I know, all these videos. Who has the time! These are total feel good videos, believe me. And they are quick. Sit back and enjoy them.

1. SEEDS:

It all starts with the seeds. At Young Living, we know exactly where our seeds come from – which means no genetically modified seeds. They are even hand picked!

2. CULTIVATION: 

The next step in Seed to Seal is cultivation. Young Living is very particular about how their soil, seeds and plants are treated. They bring in goats to eat the weeds, rather than spray chemicals. They harvest when the plants are ready, not when it’s convenient for the workers, so that the plants will have all the therapeutic components that nature intended for them to have.
3. DISTILLATION:

The third step is distillation where the oils are actually released from the plant materials. Each plant needs a different temperature and distillation process. If you have a Young Living account, you can take a tour of our farms you can see the entire distillation process, from start to finish.

4. TESTING:

Next comes testing. Young Living never distributes diluted, cut, or adulterated essential oils. To guarantee consistent quality, our oils are tested in our own internal labs, as well as third-party facilities, to ensure they meet our own specifications and exceed international standards!

5. SEAL:

And last but not least, the seal shows that nothing has been added to the oil and nothing has been taken away. Each bottle label has tracking information that allows YL to trace each bottle of oil back to its source.

Check out the Seed to Seal® website to learn all about this process and how it truly sets Young Living apart from their competitors.

And that’s our story! So excited you joined us.
