So, what ARE essential oils? Essential oils are the living fluid inside the plant that acts as their immune system. These plant fluids are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune-strengthening properties of plants. They are necessary for the plant to live and contain vibrational energy that helps to give them therapeutic properties. When these fluids are distilled and extracted using a highly regulated, low-heat, slow-steam process and then used topically, aromatically or internally, they can help bring that vibrational energetic level that is lacking in our bodies back into balance. Essential oils are composed of microscopic molecules that are able to penetrate into the DNA/cellular level of every cell in our body (even crossing the blood-brain barrier) and can help to support our body’s natural healing systems.
Pretty cool, right?
BUT – unfortunately, not all essential oils are created equal. Oils found at the health food store or on amazon are usually aromatic-grade oils meant for smelling, not for topical use and definitely not for internal use. Many store bought oils contain additives or synthetics or may have been distilled in a way that doesn’t guarantee a high quality of therapeutic constituents. That’s why it is so important to know where your oils come from, how they are distilled and how they are processed. You definitely get what you pay for. Truly pure & natural quality essential oils do cost more. Cheaper essential oil products that are legally labeled as “100% Pure” are actually only required to have 5% of the essential oil present in their product. When you consider that it takes 22 pounds of rose petals to make a 5mL bottle of Rose oil from France, you can start to understand why the real thing costs more.
This is why I chose Young Living Essential Oils. They have a Seed to Seal guarantee that ensures that from the dirt (no pesticide residue) to the seed (no GMOs), to using essential oils back on the plant as natural pesticide (no other company does this), to the harvest time and procedure (sometimes in the daytime, sometimes at night, sometimes by hand/tool/machine) to the distillation process (slow steam, low heat, first distillation, medical grade stainless steel machinery) to the multitude of testing from in house and 3rd party, to ensure only the highest quality and purity to the bottling of the product – everything is overseen and quality is ensured. NO other essential oil company owns their own farms, they all buy from 3rd party companies. Young Living does not sell their essential oils to any other company. Owning their own farms allows complete quality control over every aspect of the procedure. Their farms are located in their natural environment all over the world. The are completely open with their entire process, which you can visit or watch at www.SeedtoSeal.com. The Seed to Seal promise allows Young Living the ability to truly know what the product is that they’re selling. They will even go out of stock of a POPULAR oil, willing to lose millions in sales, if an oil is not up to standard. They truly care about quality products, the earth, and their customers.

Why Would I ever buy from a distributor??
Why purchase through a distributor? Doesn't it up the price to pay for the distributor? Think of any referral program you have seen from a company. Almost every successful company has one. Amazon has a large referral program that many people make a full time income on. The difference with Young Living, is, that they receive ALL of their business entirely from referrals. They do not pay for advertisements on tv, billboards, magazines, or the internet. The money is spent back to the people who use the product instead of advertising companies. To me, it's a great system! Who wouldn't want to be rewarded just for sharing their favorite products with their friends? So for those who think essential oils are too expensive, this referral program allows EVERY customer to be able to get their oils paid for. Which helped our low income family be able to afford essential oils everyday.
Essential oils are new to most people and it's a product that requires some training before using. When you purchase your essential oils through a distributor, you not only get oils, but you get a real person to answer any of your questions. All my members get access to my private educational Facebook group, e-courses and one-on-one support.
