Essential Oils

All You Need To Know About Essential Oils

What is an essential oil?

Essential Oils are the aromatic liquids found in trees, flowers, bushes, branches, stems, fruits, needles, roots and seeds. They are referred to as the “life force” of a plant or its immune system. They are composed of hundreds of chemical constituents which are extracted through steam distillation. In the human body, essential oils stimulate the secretion of antibodies, neurotransmitters, endorphins, hormones, and enzymes. Because of their complexity, essential oils do not disturb the body’s natural balance, but instead the molecules in the oils mimic the molecules your body uses for repair and regeneration.  Discover more here!


Why is this something that you should care about?

Most of the conventional products we use daily contain synthetic chemicals. (parabens, phthalates, triclosan, formaldehyde, sodium lauryl sulfate, toluene….) Synthetic chemicals are known endocrine disruptors – which interfere with the body’s endocrine (system of hormone producing glands) system. Your endocrine system  produces hormones (chemical messengers that communicate between organs and tissue and control most major body functions – such as digestion, respiration, sleep, growth, reproduction, metabolism, stress, movement, mood… )

When synthetic chemicals enter the bloodstream through skin absorption, consumption or inhalation, they interfere with this delicate process. The Endocrine Society recently released a statement on Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals specifically listing obesity, diabetes, female and male reproduction, hormone- sensitive cancers, thyroid and neurodevelopment systems as being affected biological aspects of exposure to endocrine disruption chemicals. Since the primary function of the liver is to remove toxins from the body, the use of products containing synthetic chemicals can be exponentially detrimental for those with impaired liver function – which is becoming more common due to the over use of pain killers and alcohol abuse.

Replacing products with natural products can greatly reduce exposure to endocrine disruptors and reduce the impact on the liver and improve overall heath.

Why Young Living Essential Oils?

I kept hearing about other friends testimonials and experiences with Young Living products. When it seemed too good to be true, I started researching it for myself. {And those of you who know me well know that involves a process similar to studying for a college final exam.}

I found Young Living to be deeply committed to the purity and quality of their oils, from “Seed to Seal“. Their oils go through a strenuous testing and distilling process in order for them to be most effective and safe. Their oils go through a strenuous testing and distilling process in order for them to be most effective and safe.Oils you can purchase at stores or elsewhere online, while they may be cheaper, have no regulations, meaning they can be adulterated with chemicals, solvents, other oils and water to make them go further.


Young Living does not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides on any of their our farms. In fact, Gary Young has never bought a farm that has EVER had a history of pesticides or herbicides on it. (In order for a field to be “usda organic” it has to have been pesticide/herbicide free for 7 years. YL Farms have NEVER had those chemicals, EVER!

  • Young Living Farms have full time weed pickers.
  • To ensure organic soil on their farms, Young Living raises organic worm farms on each property.
  • Every farm is far away from major cities, so Young Living even tests for environmental pollutants before purchasing land.
  • Young Living uses their own organic seeds from past crops.
  • Young Living will not accept oils, plants or seeds that do not meet their strict standard. GMO is NOT acceptable and never has been bought or used.
  • Young Living triple checks every single batch of essential oil to ensure quality and safety. If an oil has certain constituents that do not reach their proper levels, that batch is re-used as the natural pesticide on their farms. They refuse to sell a product that doesn’t meet their rigorous standards, and they accept the monetary costs of this sacrifice happily each year.
  • You can go to the farms yourself and see for yourself the Seed to Seal process.

You can go to the farms whenever and see the whole process from the farm, to distillation, to packaging. I’ll be visiting next month!

YL Essential Oils are the only oils I trust enough to use for myself.

This along with the opportunities and incentives to use and share their fabulous products sold me hard on Young Living.

How Do I Use the Oils? 

  • Inhale – deep breaths of the bottle or by diffusing 
  • Topically – apply directly to the skin or diluted with a carrier oil {my favorite method}
  • Ingest – through drops placed in water or foods or by capsule

The uses are endless!

Did You Say BONUS?!!!

You heard me right!  One of my absolute favorite parts of sharing Young Living is the COMMUNITY, EDUCATION, and SUPPORT.  I had no idea when I signed up what a fantastic team I signed up with through Oil Sistas.  In addition, I LOVE putting the power of education in your hands so you are comfortable and equipped for knowing how to use your oils best!  {I cannot emphasize how important this is to your journey.} Because I believe in this so much that I’m using a portion of my commissions to send you a reference material, and in addition I will get you plugged into our awesome online community. On top of that, I will offer ongoing support and education!

How Can I Share Young Living with Others and Reap the Benefits? 

When you sign up, you’ll receive a member # to give to family and friends who are interested in joining, which earns commissions (cash) for you to use to purchase oils or to help your earn some extra spending money!  Not a requirement for membership – just a perk! If you want to see the potential of this company, see the annual Income Disclosure, here. I can honestly say, that this disclosure is accurate!
