What are Essential Oils?
They are the volatile liquids that comes from plants (roots, shrubs, seeds, resin, leaves etc) that contain the healing properties of the plant. They are often referred as the “life force of a plant” or “the plant’s immune system”. In essence, they protect the cells of the plants from disease and decay. And that is exactly what they do for our bodies. It is much more potent than the herbs or plants that they come from.
For instance: 1 drop of peppermint essential oil = 26 cups of peppermint tea.
1 drop of lemon essential oil = 40 lemons

Why Young Living?
There are so many brands in the market and why did I chose this one? In doing my research, I found out that not all brands are the same. YL makes a commitment to only producing the purest form of Essential Oils. They are pure, unadulterated and natural.
They not only make their own products, but also have their own fields where these plants are grown. They select the best quality seeds, cultivate them using natural methods and know exactly when to harvest them.
There is a science to preparing the essential oils – what the right temperature needs to be, how long to process it, what kind of equipment to use etc. Each batch is monitored closely.
Each batch is tested using stringent methods to make sure that they are pure therapeutic grade. This is also to ensure that the each batch has the most optimal level of plant product to do what it is supposed to do.
In short it is called Seed to Seal.
