What are oils? By definition, essential oils are the vital (and aromatic) fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. You can think of the oil as the plants “immune system” – it is essential to the lifer and health of the plant. Oils are typically exracted through careful steam distillation that ensures all the important, therapeutic, and health-giving constituents of the oil remain intact.
What are oils used for? Are they all the same? We acually use essential oils a lot in everyday life. They are used to flavor foods and can be found in things like toothpaste and mouthwash to give it that minty kick. Oils are also in perfumes and skin care products. They are many places that you wouldn’t guess but not all oils are created equally. Oils found in food and cosmetics are typically something that is synthetic, your body processes it as a toxin therefore it becomes harder to break down or can be stored in fat cells. These type of synthetic oils work against your body.
Young Living Essential Oils are theraputic grade which gives them the ability to work with your body. Within 20 minutes of applying oils they can be found in every cell. These pure oils are distilled from the “life blood” of plants and contain the plant’s own immunity, horomones and scents. When you pick a rose and break off the stem, youll always notice there is a bit of watery substance. This is the source that the pure essential oils come from. This God given source was intelligently created to benefit our whole body.
Why Young Living? Young Living has an unmatched Seed to Seal process to guarentee the purity and potency of every oil. Each batch of oils is rigorously tested in house for theraputic viability and they are so confident in their products, that you can actually visit the farms and participate in the harvest/distillation process.
What is Seed to Seal? To distill oils is a highly tempermental process and can not be rushed. Young Living is apart of the entire process from “Seed to Seal”. They make sure that the soil the crops are planted in have never been touched with pesticides or herbicides so that toxins are never present in the plants or in the oils. Young Living oversees each step ensuring that the correct temperature is used for the correct amount of time so that every constituent is intact. They go above and beyond to guarentee that every drop of oil is what we call “beyond organic”.
