Whether you got started with our favorite essential oils or my energy in a glass – NingXia Red or our all-in-one cleaner – Thieves Household cleaner, something that makes Young Living products unique is that they're infused with essential oils.
Do you know what essential oils are?
Do you know how to use them?
Or better yet, why to use them?
Essential oils are just that - oils. Except... they're not actually "oily" like you might expect (hey, I thought they would be!). Have you ever cut some fresh flowers or veggies and noticed the water-like liquid dripping out of the cut? That's the essential oil from that plant. It's chemically considered an oil, but in most cases it's as thin and viscous as water.
Essential oils are the life blood of a plant. They support plant growth, metabolism and much more. And when these plants are grown in the right conditions, harvested at the correct time, and distilled with the utmost care (you can read more about Young Living's Seed to Seal process here) they can aid in keeping our bodies healthy, well, and happy - which is how our bodies were intended to be. Essential oils are composed of teeny molecules. These molecules so small that they can pass through our tissues and directly into our cells. Our systems are super effective and can transport these molecules all over our bodies within a matter of minutes, offering maximum support!
Think about how important blood is in our bodies. This is how important essential oils are to the plants they move freely through. The beautiful thing about them is that they carry their benefits to our bodies as well!
Not all essential oils are created equal!
Not all oils are safe to use in the ways Young Living essential oils are. Those oils you saw at the health store or co-op cannot be ingested the way Young Living oils can. One thing that is mind blowing is how easy it is for other essential oil brands to have misleading “100% pure” labels - yet contain synthetic oils and additives. Pretty crazy! Young Living is the ONLY company that grows it’s own plants from start to finish, and owns their own farms, with the strictest standards around.
