Why Young Living
When I first heard about essential oils, I tried more than a dozen brands. I couldn’t figure out why none of them were working. I was making my own “Thieves” blend that I’d read about but we just weren’t seeing results. It wasn’t until a friend sent me a sample of Young Living Lavender and Thieves that I understood what quality meant. For the first time, the bottle of oils smelled like a plant instead of a perfume! That was when our research began and why our family landed with Young Living and hasn’t looked back for over 5 years.
HOW ESSENTIAL OILS WORK
To understand more about why quality is important, you’ll want to know how oils work so we’ll do a quick EO 101 here! Essential oils can help support our physical, mental and emotional well-being by triggering and strengthening our bodies’ own natural processes. They are made up of tiny molecules that can deliver restorative properties to the systems that control our physiological state. The molecules of essential oils are so small, so efficient, they have the ability to affect every cell in your body in 20 minutes, and then be metabolized like other nutrients.
Like I said, the chemistry of essential oils is fascinating and is a class all of its own, but for the science enthusiasts out there, here are some fun facts just to make your brain happy!
*Essential oils contain oxygen molecules that help transport nutrients to the human cells that have been damaged, compromised, and drained of nutrients. Because a nutritional deficiency is essentially an oxygen deficiency, disease begins when the cells lack oxygen for proper nutrient assimilation. By providing the needed oxygen, essential oils also work to stimulate the immune system.
*Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants prevent mutations, work to protect against free radicals, prevent fungus, and prevent oxidation in the cells. Our body does create antioxidants on its own, but not enough to keep up with the damage we do to our cells via toxins and disease, much less the natural aging process. Supplementing with nutritionals high in antioxidants is a very wise health choice, and essential oils are extremely antioxidant!
*There are two main groups of constituents that make up the chemistry of an essential oil. They are hydrocarbons and oxygenated compounds. These are further subdivided into sub-groups: Monoterpenes, Sesqueterpenes, Phenolics, Alcohols, Esters, Aldehydes, Ketones, and Oxides. The unique chemical makeup of each essential oil gives it the ability to work on a cellular level, support our body systems, and encourage healthy function the way that God intended.
THE POWER OF THE WORDS – SEED TO SEAL
I did some research (and by some, I mean A LOT) on essential oils and different companies before getting a wholesale membership with Young Living™. I decided to try just about every brand out there before landing on just any company. I’d like to share with you what stood out the most to me during my time learning about what is important when choosing an essential oil company.
Purity, quality, and integrity.
There seem to be so many essential oil companies these days, but what sets YL apart is the purity and commitment to quality. What makes Young Living™ the world leader? We are the oldest and most trusted company in the world. We have 25 years of research and experience.
YL produces and guarantees 100% pure therapeutic grade oils, which is vastly different from the perfume grade oils that you can buy at the local health food store. Remember how I had thought the “perfume” smell was normal?
YL is the only company that owns its own farms. Because of this they have the Seed to Seal® guarantee. Other companies claim they offer a quality product, but really they are just 3rd party bottlers of oil.
YL process is called Seed to Seal®, which means they have control of the product from the soil and seed to the time it is bottled and sealed. These steps are taken in order to promise 100% pure oils without additives, fillers, synthetics, or oil that is just void of the constituents that benefit our bodies due to overcooking oils in the distillation process. Cheap perfume grade oils (100% synthetic), or even just diluted oils with less therapeutic constituents can all legally be labeled 100% pure and organic because there is basically no regulation in this industry. You truly must know and trust your company.
I trust Young Living™! I am able to spend time on their farms, I have become part of the “family”, and we have had nothing but excellent experiences with their products. Deciding to use Young Living™ products was part of a decision to make better and safer choices for my family. I am very thankful for the impact that YL has made in my life!
