Why essential oils?

By definition, essential oils are the vital (and aromatic) fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. You can think of the oil as a plant's "immune system"--it is essential to the life and health of the plant. Oils are typically extracted through careful steam distillation that ensures all the important therapeutic and health-giving constituents of the oil remain intact. 

You may ask yourself, "Why can't I just go get essential oils for less money at the grocery store?" To that I would say, just like anything else that you put into or on your body, the more you know about it, the more you want to make the best choice. Not all oils are created equal. Just as a grass fed cow is going to be a much purer meat, so Young Living essential oils are going to be the purest you can get. They are therapeutic grade, which gives them the ability to work with your body. Within 20 minutes of applying oils they can be found in every cell.

It is a highly temperamental process to distill oils from plants and it can not be rushed. Young Living is a part of the entire process from "Seed to Seal". They make sure that the soil the crops are planted in have never been touched with pesticides or herbicides so that toxins are never present in the plants or in the oils. Young Living oversees each step ensuring that the correct temperature is used for the correct amount of time so that every constituent is intact. They go above and beyond to guarantee that every drop of oil is what we call "beyond organic." 

It is amazing to think of all that God put into creation for our benefit when he made plants. Putting these perennial and enduring oils to use has begun a transformation for our family, and I hope you choose to use them as a tool in your box for yours as well.
