What are essential oils?

Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts from plants, and are 50-70 times more potent than herbs. Crazy fact: just 1 drop of peppermint oil is the equivalent of 28 cups of peppermint tea!. Essential oils are defence mechanism for plants and cells and can be used for a myriad of wellness benefits, from emotional and hormonal wellness, to immunity, digestive, and respiratory support. From beauty and skin, to detoxifying your home. Essential oils really can do it all. There is something that us oilers will often say in response to just about any ailment or complaint and that is- there is an oil for that! There really is!

When it comes to purchasing essentials oils that you are going to use in your home, in your health and on your family, it is so important to remember that not all essential oils are created equally. Certified Pure Tested Grade essential oils are the only way to go. This is why I am so passionate about Young Living. Their oils are the highest possible quality, and there are no synthetics, no fillers, no pesticides, no alcohol, no fragrances. They are just 100% pure essential oil with their seed to seal guarantee.

There is a major difference in the oils you might bight from a supermarket which are cheap (for a reason! They are diluted and not from quality sourced ingredients). Young Living guarantees every step of the process in making these essential oils that you use, and promise only the highest quality and authenticity of their product. This begins with verifying the identity of the botanical. Next, the plants are harvested at the optimal time. Young Living uses a process called Gas Chromatography to verify the quality of each product. Finally, tests are performed to verify purity, potency, and safety.

It is important to note that many of these tests are done twice: once upon the warehouse receiving the oil, and again after production. Additionally, while tests are done by Young Living, they are also performed by third party facilities. Each individual bottle is carefully labelled with tracking information so that it can be traced back to its source.

Young Living, is the only essential oils company to have its own farms, has set the industry standard by sourcing 100 percent of its oils from its corporate farms, partner farms and Seed to Seal®-certified suppliers. You can trust that the oils you use are the best out there!
