What Are Essential Oils?

Lorie GarciaUncategorized

I bet the first question you have right now is, “What exactly are essential oils?”  In a nutshell, pure and authentic essential oils are unique, concentrated aromatic liquids.

They are extracted through very careful and controlled steam distillation, resin tapping and cold pressing. Because they are so concentrated, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come!

They are distilled from flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and the seeds of plants, and are rich in compounds beneficial to supporting your health and vitality.

The distillation process concentrates these beneficial properties. The purity and the value of the oil comes from this process.

On the bottle label you will see “YLTG,” this stands for “Young Living Therapeutic Grade.” So what exactly is meant by “therapeutic-grade”?  Please click HERE to see a short excerpt explaining what it takes to create such an oil.

Next time you hear from me, I will be telling you about the biblical history of essential oils! But in the meantime, if you want to explore more about oils, please visit my website.

As usual, I would love to hear from you.
