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...

some SUMMER oil thoughts

In case you can’t tell from this little graphic, LAVENDER is an AWESOME EO to start with! It is the oil I jumped into learning about way back when I used whatever oil I could afford…. not really realizing the different qualities. We use it all the time for scrapes and bug bites and unknown-origin itches. {And I do realize that there MAY be other oils with quality equal to Young Living… but I trust Young Living’s SEED to SEAL promise, and the one-stop-shopping for EOs is just what this busy momma needs! } We love [heavily diluted, a little goes a LONG way] PEPPERMINT for upset tummies. I use it for headaches, but small children should not use this potent oil around their face or neck as it can hinder their respiration. I like to add THIEVES to my {natural} all-purpose cleaner… [it’s just vinegar & water] for some extra germ-killing “umph.” Have you ever used any of these oils for these purposes? {{Feel free to ask me how you can get wholesale prices from me… locals get free shipping. Sales tax still applies. If you fall in love with your oil, the PREMIUM STARTER KIT is the way to go for learning about MORE!}} ** I am not a doctor .
