WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
They are the most powerful part of the plant. They are distilled from all types of plants including shrubs, flowers, herbs, bushes, fruit, rind, roots etc. They consist of over 100 organic compounds. When you go outside and smell the scent of flowers outside, you are smelling the oils. It is the cut grass after somebody has mowed!
WHO CAN USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Adults, children, babies and even animals can use Young Living essential oils. With children and babies, it is always good to dilute with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or olive oil. Young Living has a whole line for children that are already prepared for babies and children. They, also, have a line for pets. Essential oils have been used since Bible times. This is the only medicine that the people had in that time period. Essential oils are mentioned 1100 times in the Bible!
HOW ARE THEY USED?
Oils can be used aromatically. Place oils in a diffuser and take in the smells. Topically, you can apply the oils to special points on the body. Some can be applied "neat" or straight from the bottle or can be diluted with a carrier oil. It all depends on the type of oil. Young Living oils can also be a dietary consumption too! I would not suggest this with any other oils!!! Only Young Living due to their seed to seal quality!
WHY YOUNG LIVING AS OPPOSED TO ANY OTHER BRAND?
Young Living is the best in my opinion. After having health issues related to everyday toxins, I went on a mad research binge and after much reading and processing, I came to the conclusion that I would not trust putting any other oil on my body. I suggest that you do your own research and come to your own conclusions but most come back to Young Living. Some of reasons are due to the below:
