I heard about essential oils for almost 2 years before I bought them. Being in the online world, you can’t avoid hearing about them! Pinterest, blog posts, and instagram accounts are flooded with the latest *hip* uses of them. When I visited Candace in LA, I remember her pulling out a few bottles and putting them on. It was the first time I used them. A little skeptical, I was still intrigued. So when my friend and photographer, Christina, approached me about them in September 2014, it wasn’t a hard sell. I was ready.
What are essential oils?
Great question! Here is an excerpt from “The Happy Oils” handbook (a 30 page ebook you get for free if you order a premium starter kit!)
“Essential oil is the “lifeblood” of a plant because the oil protects the plant from disease, provides nutrients and helps to repel insects.
Essential Oils were mankind’s first medicine! Because really, since God created plants in the beginning of time, oils have been used for healing and anointing all throughout Scripture. Today, they are still used to bring health and healing to the body (physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.) Essential oils can be found in the plant’s flower, stem, leaves, bark or fruit.
Essential oils are very complex containing hundreds or thousands of different chemical compounds; this is what gives each plant its unique healing attributes and characteristics. They are quickly absorbed by the body when applied topically. The oils work on every system in the body on a cellular level to assist in the elimination of toxins. The fragrance of the oils works on the limbic system in the brain where emotions are stored. Essential oils can help release emotional trauma, relax and clear the mind.
(Here is an awesome youtube “Why Essential Oils?” from my friend, Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton! So helpful!)
Therapeutic grade YLEOs do the following:
- reach every cell in your body within 20 minutes when applied topically to the body
- eliminate toxins in your body
- regenerate DNA
- have the capability of passing the “blood-brain” barrier
- work on emotions via the limbic system of your brain when inhaled
- release emotional trauma, relax and clear the mind
- transport nutrients to starving human cells
- powerful antioxidants
- increase atmospheric oxygen
- remove toxins in the air
- increase ozone and negative ions in the area which inhibit bacterial growth
Why Young Living?
Why choose Young Living when there are so many other companies out there to choose from? And let’s be honest, some of those companies are cheaper. This is one of those cases where you get what you pay for. You absolutely can get a $5 bottle of oil but beware, you’re getting an inferior product.
When it comes to oils that I would be using daily around my children and pets I wanted to know EXACTLY what I was getting. We care about what we’re putting IN our bodies so shouldn’t we care just as much about what we’re putting ON our bodies?
Young Living is the only company out there that has the Seed to Seal promise. What does that mean? Simply put, Young Living controls every single aspect of the production line. They own their own farms. They plant their own seeds. They cultivate their own crops. They oversee everything from planting to bottling. They can say with a 100% guarantee that they know what is in those precious little bottles and that they are 100% pure. Seeing as that I’m putting these products on the ones that I love dearly, that guarantee is worth way more than $5 to me!
