For those who haven’t used them, essential oils might seem strange, new or both. The word “oil” has plenty of meanings, depending on the context. It might be used in cooking, as with vegetable oil, or in driving, as with motor oil.
I started using essential oils for my family after a friend shared with me just over a year ago and WOW, we have seen such amazing changes in our health and wellness. I never expected to share about them, teach about them or use my business, mentoring and training background to help others do the same. I just can’t keep it to myself! I want to tell everyone about what they are and how they can be used to help balance the health and wellness of YOUR busy family!
What makes essential oils “essential”?
The answer begins in the field. In part, Young Living labels the oils “essential” because they come a variety of seeds and plants around the world – in other words, they are an essential component of things found in nature. The seeds and plants from which Young Living essential oils are derived come from farms that are overseen by experts who ensure the highest standards are achieved.
Their presence in nature isn’t the only thing that makes essential oils “essential.” Essential oils also have been used for thousands of years to encourage well-being among people. They can be used in conjunction with aromatherapy, as part of a fitness regimen, to support pet wellness and much more. Each generation has found new ways to celebrate the lifestyle that comes with essential oils, making them an essential part of daily life.
Finally, essential oils are “essential” because of the way in which they are gathered for use by your family. Young Living is recognized as an innovator in essential oil distillation including their gentle and proprietary technique for steam extracting. Young Living also uses cold pressing and resin tapping for select oils.
Further, products are tested to verify they meet stringent specifications and sealed in protective amber glass bottles. High quality is at the heart of what Young Living does and is thus essential to Young Living.
