WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL???
The volatile oil of a plant, meaning they will evaporate, unlike a fatty oil. Essential oils are extracted from trees, shrubs, flowers and stems and seeds. Sometimes they are called the “life force” of the plant. Essential oils don’t have a shelf life. They last a long, long time.
-The purest, most potent form of an herb.
-EO’s are nothing new. Historically, essential oils are the oldest known form of medicine, dating back to 4500BC.
Properties of Essential Oils –
Helpful for supporting ALL body systems like – skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, nervous, respiratory, lymphatic, urinary, reproductive and integumentary body systems – as well as the structures and functions of the body.
3 WAYS TO USE YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS
YL follows the French model of essential oil usage because of the high quality of our essential oils. If in doubt about how to use an oil it’s always great to start with the primary usage on the label and then go from there as you see fit for your family.**
- AROMATICALLY: When inhaling, it takes 22 seconds for an oil to reach the brain. The only way to reach limbic system is through smell, which is why oils are such a great option for those for those needing emotional support and support for their nervous system. Diffusing is another way we inhale oils – it purifies the air, makes your home smell good without chemicals, great for respiratory support, stubborn spouses and crazy kids.
- TOPICALLY: Because of their molecular structure, essential oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. Sometimes when you apply an oil to the skin, it almost seems to disappear into the body. When applied topically, it takes 2-3 minutes for an oil to reach the bloodstream, 20 minutes to affect every cell in the body, then metabolized within 2 ½ hours. It’s not rocket science - apply oils to the area where you want to provide support. Some favorite places are wrists, behind the ears, neck, temples, stomach or especially feet.
- INTERNALLY: In water/drinks, cooking/baking, in capsules etc. Be sure to use glass or stainless steel when drinking essential oils in water. Citrus oils especially can digest petrochemicals, so it’s important not to use plastic.
ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY
Essential oils are potent gifts from nature that can often be more powerful than expected. Always read the essential oil labels for further information and usage. A few important tips:

Our family has been using essential oils for almost TWO YEARS! I am so grateful that we found a way to naturally support our health and wellness. It has started a new found passion for me to help others understand that there are thousands of toxins hiding in products deemed socially acceptable for everyday use. You don’t have to fall victim to the effects of these toxins on your health. You have a choice, there are alternatives! I would love to chat with you more about essential oils and toxic free living!
