commitment to purity in distillation

commitment to purity in distillation

This is a little ‘lengthy’ but please **listen carefully** to the details he spells out–the care and commitment to a perfectly pure product is astounding. –and this is just the distilling process! {I am not trying to bash any other brand or company of oils… but there is not another essential oil brand on the market that can boast of this level of purity-commitment. and I want to use only the best! I try to take care to use pure, whole foods and get tired of reading labels that list sugar as the 1st or 2nd ingredient… why would I pick up “just any” essential oil when I know the harmful effects chemicals in the water of the steaming/distilling process can do to those oils!!?? –and not everything that is in the essential oil as a result of those chemicals is required by law to be on a label, just letting you know!–} ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I would love to help you get started learning more about Young Living Essential Oils… Comment here or visit me on FACEBOOK! ** I am not a doctor .

what is an essential oil BLEND?

what is an essential oil BLEND?

Mr. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living, has spend years studying and researching essential oils and their different properties and how they effect our bodies. Because of this, there are many blends of oils available through Young Living that are targeted for specific needs, be it emotional or physical. Every oil has its own rate of evaporation, or volatility. Essential oils usually fit into one of these categories depending on their volatility. “top notes” – these are lighter fragrances and are quickest to evaporate. They are often the most stimulating and uplifting to the mind and body. They tend to be the first impression of a blend and often have antiseptic properties. “middle notes” – these oils have warm, soft fragrances which linger after a brief sniff of the oil. They have medium volatility and tend to general functions and metabolism of the body. They are often good for balancing the body. “base notes” – these oils are the slowest to evaporate, and are usually the most relaxing and sedating oils. They tend to be the last impression of a blend’s fragrance. Of course, there are some oils that do cross over between the notes and can be described, for example as ‘top middle’. When essential oils are blended, their combined effect can be multiplied more than the effects of the individual oils. Some blends come together more pleasingly than others and have enhancing effects. This is called synergy. If you were to combine Lavender eo with Chamomile eo it would enhance the anti-inflammatory properties of each.    So…….the very best essential oil blends are those that enhance the...
so, what ARE essential oils anyway?

so, what ARE essential oils anyway?

WELCOME to my series on ESSENTIAL OILS and what they are, how they are extracted and why Young Living is the leader in this industry, including their process that guarantees the oils are the highest, purest quality on the market. Have you just simply wondered what in the world “ESSENTIAL OILS” are? well… Essential Oils are “volatile liquids created by aromatic plants that help the plants sustain it’s life.” {??}   Essential oils are literally the “life blood” of a plant. They are an ‘oil-soluble substance’ that can be extracted from a plant that helps that plant defend itself from insects and environmental conditions as well as fight against disease. The oils of a plant are over 50 times more powerful than the herb, and their molecules are small enough to enter the blood stream through the skin. Inhaling oils can cause them to penetrate the blood/brain barrier, which is causing some revolutionary research into autism and developmental delays, as well as helping many families naturally control a child with attention issues. Use of essential oils for healing dates back to Biblical times. There have been essential oils found in Egyptian tombs that still posses the same compounds as oils distilled properly today–meaning a PURE Essential Oil will not have an expiration date… but diluted or adulterated ones will. I wrote about why I prefer to learn about natural methods of healing to try before heading to a medical practitioner… but I must caution anyone who also wishes to do so to consult their doctor before trying alternatives to Rx, especially if you are currently taking an Rx for a specific...
Why do I choose “natural remedies” before a doctor visit?

Why do I choose “natural remedies” before a doctor visit?

At the end, I’ll link to an interesting article about essential oils vs Rx drugs–which my reading of prompted this post. But before you read it, I would like to preface it by saying that I do believe vaccines and drugs and prescriptions {Rx}, etc. have a place in our physical well-being. Some people are all or nothing either way. I prefer to try to find balance. My main problem with Rx & OTCs is that they have become “god” to so many–a first response to any ailment. I personally know people who have very minor problems {a sneeze!?} and run to the doctor for a “cure-all prescription” which will likely cause more problems than their original ailment… I prefer to research alternatives as a first defense instead of a last resort.    {{But that doesn’t mean you have to. }} I also will be speaking mostly of Essential Oils because that is what I am learning the most about right now… herbal remedies and proper nutrition will get their own post one day. I understand that vaccines have done a miraculous work at nearly eliminating certain childhood illnesses. When your body is in intense pain for some reason or another, there ARE prescriptions that can aid in relieving those symptoms. But it is true that, as far as I have ever read/heard, all Rx have some negative side effect as stated in this article. I do not know that the modern medical field is indoctrinated as he states, because there ARE competent doctors and nurses who also advocate “natural remedies” -and there are a few comments from them in this...
