WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible.
- A volatile substance derived from plants, containing the natural smell and characteristics of the plant.
- Extracted primarily through steam distillation.
- Potent, volatile and extremely versatile and are often called the “lifeblood” of the plant.
- A way to support our body systems on a natural basis.
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.
THERE ARE 3 WAYS TO USE THEM
The way I got started with oils is probably how most do… I was not happy with putting “drugs” into my or my childrens bodies. I was looking for natural methods and a friend told me about how she was using her oils. This was 3 years ago, I knew very little, but took a huge interest and dove in and started to learn ANYTHING and read EVERYTHING I could my hands on. I recently decided to share more openly because so many people had been asking me. It was coming up in conversation frequently. Do we still go to the doctor, yes. Do we listen to his direction or diagnosis or concern, always. But I now have a “medicine cabinet” of oils to turn to when I would otherwise grab some junk off a CVS shelf. I can do a lot of things for my house and family with a few drops of oil.
On top of that, the other products YL has, household products, has made my life so much easier and our house is safer! They have a Thieves cleaning spray that one capful to a 16oz spray bottle can clean and sanitize for weeks! The hand spray and wipes are so essential for me on the go with kids!
