What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the volatile, fragrant molecules in a plant that actively work to help promote systematic regulation and healthful modification of plant cells. They are either steam distilled, cold pressed or resin-tapped from the botanical. They are more potent than the botanicals from which they’re extracted and contain powerful, concentrated health and wellness benefits. 

“Drugs and oils work in opposite ways. Drugs toxify. Oils detoxify. Drugs clog and confuse receptor sites. Oils clean receptor sites. Drugs depress the immune system. Oils strengthen the immune system. Antibiotics attack bacteria indiscriminately, killing both the good and the bad. Oils attack only the harmful bacteria, allowing our body’s friendly flora to flourish.”

David Steward, Ph.D., R.A. The Chemistry of Essential Oils, 2005

Enhance Your Wellness

Everyone should use essential oils, they are not just a fad. They help support the health and wellness of our body, mind and spirit. Sadly, modern lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and diminish energy levels. Essential oils are not a single-use fix, but should be viewed as part of a wellness regime.

How to use Essential Oils

AROMATICALLY. Breath them in! This is likely the most common way people are familiar with using essential oils. A high quality diffuser is a must! SHOP DIFFUSERS

TOPICALLY. Soak them in!  Place (or roll) premium quality essential oils on your skin for amazing health benefits.  Follow the produts recommeneded dilutation rate for topical use. Learn more about essential oil safety.

DIETARY. Ingest them in! Likely the least known way to benefit from essential oils, but one of my favorite ways to use them! Oil-infused supplements and the oils themselves are amazing way to maximize health benefits. **I ONLY INGEST YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OIL/PRODUCTS labeled for dietary use.

Jen O' Sullivan, The Essential Oil Truth: The Facts Without the Hype (2d ed. 2019).

When I first began using Young Living products in 2016, I knew nothing about essential oils or the industry. I trusted my best friend’s referral, plain and simple. Now, years later, I’ve done my own research and have had my own success stories. Having used other store-brought brands, for me, Young Living far exceeds the quality and effectiveness of any other brand I have used. It is now the only brand I trust for my family.

But do not take my word for it.
