The term ‘essential oil’ refers to a highly concentrated oil that is extracted from a variety of very special plants. These oils are essential in the sense that once they are distilled, they carry the very ‘essence’ of the plant. Essential oils have been used medicinally for hundreds of years as treatments for a wide range of conditions. From skin treatments, to muscle and joint pain, to sleep remedies, to increased libido…there are literally hundreds of essential oil treatments improving the lives of people around the world! However, until fairly recently, essential oils had not been widely used in many western parts of the world like the United States. General attitudes toward treatments were very focused almost completely on ‘Western’ medical treatments, synthetic prescription drugs, and the like. But in recent years, as our knowledge and maturity of effective treatments has grown, a mass of people are turning out in droves to experience the benefits of essential oils. And unlike the character of synthetic prescription drugs, essential oils are 100% natural!
Oils can be inhaled by diffusing in a room, massaged into your skin, and with some oils…even taken orally. Inhaling essential oils can reduce stress, lift a depression, hasten a good night’s sleep, soothe your soul, or give you more energy. Currently, Young Living is being used in over 50 hospitals. Hospitals are already using essential oils to help patients relax so that other healing modalities can do their job better. Massaging essential oils into your skin can ease aches and pains, soothe a sore throat, improve your complexion, or thicken your hair. Essential oils are very versatile and can be used in many different ways to treat a wide range of physical and emotional problems. And they are so easy to use! Who wouldn’t welcome a prescription to bathe with scented oils or to receive an aromatic massage?
Take a look at our essential oils guide or one of our popular starter kits! And remember…as you get educated on the benefits of essential oils, don’t be fooled by low quality knockoffs. At Young Living Essential Oils we proudly stand by our claim of providing only 100% PURE therapeutic-grade essential oils. Young Living’s “Seed to Seal” and first time distillation process ensure the highest quality oil. Other companies distill use second, third and even complete distillation producing a less pure and potent oil while YL distill oils one time. This sets Young Living apart from all other therapeutic-grade companies. This unsurpassed commitment to quality began with our founder over 20 years ago…and we still stand by it! Come join us!
