Common Questions

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are concentrated liquids from aromatic trees, flowers, bark, seeds and other plants. When grown, harvested and distilled properly, essential oils benefit our body’s systems in a variety of ways. Young Living essential oils are 100% pure, Grade A (therapeutic) oils that do not expire and can be used topically, aromatically and internally.

Why use essential oils?

We use essential oils to support our wellness journey, and well, because they are amazing. Here are  what they can do:

  • Because these oils are Grade A {Therapeutic} they can be diffused, applied topically and ingested to support our wellness

  • Reach every cell in our body within 20 when applied topically

  • When inhaled they can be detected in our blood stream within 26 seconds and are able to pass through the blood / brain barrier

  • Help eliminate toxins in our body

  • Help support each of our body systems (nervous, muscular, digestive, immune, reproductive, lymphatic and more)

  • Provide physical and emotional support

  • When diffused purify and oxygenate the air

What makes the Young Living oils unique?

Young Living has been around for 25 years and has set the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity through their “Seed to Seal” process.

  • Seed: every seed is verified for their potential

  • Cultivate: Young Living farms are dedicated to perfecting responsible and sustainable growing and harvesting methods

  • Distill: the cold, single distillation technique extracts the essential oils and preserves their natural constituents

  • Test: the distilleries never accept diluted, cut or adulterated oils; and guarantees consistent, verifiable quality oils.

  • Seal: the state of the art equipment ensures each bottle is carefully bottled, labeled, packaged and shipped worldwide.

Why choose these oils and not cheap ones from the grocery store (or anywhere else, they are everywhere these days!)? 

Quality regulation does not exist regarding essential oils yet. Companies can put any filler or additive into what they call an “essential oil.” Most of what you find at the grocery store contains additional ingredients or has fillers in it. Young Living is the leader in the essential oils movement - with Young Living’s “Seed to Seal” standards you KNOW that you and your little ones are using the highest quality product without ANY dilution or chemical additives- yes please! I trust this company!
