Modern scientific studies and trends toward more holistic approaches to healing and wellness are driving the revival and rediscovery of essential oil applications. Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, leaves, bark, stems, roots and flowers of plants. They contain no fatty acids nor lipids and are non-greasy to the touch. This absence of lipids allows the oil to be quickly absorbed into the skin. These high quality essential oils are free of pesticides, chemical residues and have no fillers nor artificial colors to dilute their active qualities.
High quality essential oils can improve health and have a healing effect mentally, physically and emotionally. Each essential oil has its own individual therapeutic benefit. Not all essential oils are created equal and many have little to no therapeutic benefit. Over-the-counter varieties are often diluted to reduce cost and simply have added color and fragrance.
Certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living are of the very highest quality. They are harvested around the world in their indigenous countries by farmers who have the expertise on how to plant, grow and harvest the oils from their natural habitat. High quality essential oils can be used 3 ways:
Most essential oils have a shelf live of 5 years, except citrus which lose their potency after 2 years.
