of Essential Oils
Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for total mind/body wellness, including physical, emotional, spiritual, and cosmetic. You can use the ancient tradition of essential oils in many ways: Inspire a positive emotional state, enhance your physical wellness, purify your home, refine your skin, and create deep spiritual awareness.
On this page you will discover the power of therapeutic essential oils, the importance of considering quality, and also learn the different ways to use essential oils. Scroll down to begin . . .
Essential oils are the lifeblood of the plant. These oils are obtained from properly distilling any part of the plant including the seeds, roots, bark, stems, leaves, fruit, flowers or branches. Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature's pure essence.
This allows their power to be available to YOU in the most concentrated and natural form. When plants are dried for tea or supplements, 95 - 97% of their essential oils are lost! This is one of the reasons that so many people today are falling in LOVE with essential oils.
When choosing the essential oils to use, it is EXTREMELY important to consider quality! Here is why . . .
Unfortunately, most essential oils (even those found in health food stores) may be synthetic, adulterated, or diluted, and can actually be toxic to us. Essential oils can be labeled as “Pure” essential oil, even if they contain as little as 5% essential oil. The remaining 95% can be synthetics or other toxic materials.
This is why you ONLY want to diffuse, apply topically, or ingest essential oils that you KNOW are genuine and pure essential oils. Young Living is a great choice, as they set the standard for purity and authenticity. Young Living is a 20-year old company that is recognized as the world leader in essential oils and wellness solutions. They carefully monitor the production of their oils from beginning to end through their unique Seed to Seal® process, ensuring the purity of each essential oil and protecting nature’s living energy in every bottle.
