Essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant and without them, the plant wouldn’t exist (hence the term ‘essential’, therefore they are essential to the plant. The term ‘oil’ is a bit of a misnomer - they are not really oils in the sense of fats/lipids, more like the extract of a plant.
Essential oils are extremely small particles and they are volatile - they evaporate easily (unlike lipids) - allowing us to smell their aroma as the air borne particles disperse through the air.
Essential oils are made from all or any part of a plant: bark, wood, roots, leaves, flowers, fruit peel.
Essential oils are extracted through steam distillation, resin tapping and/or cold pressing.
Essential oils are nutrient dense - their very function is to carry nutrients into the cells of plants. Essential oils have the same role in plants as blood does in the human body - to carry nutrients into cells. So how nutrient dense are essential oils? According to the Dr Mat Lalonde scale of nutrient density, unirradiated herbs and spices are the second most nutrient dense foods on the plant. A pure unadulterated Young Living essential oil is said to be 100 to 10,000 times more potent than herbs and spices! That is very nutrient dense all packed into a little bottle!!
Essential oils are detoxifying. Pure essential oils are highly oxygenating - the oxygen molecules they contain push chemicals out of our cells. Therefore, in today’s modern day environment, it is more important than ever to use pure therapeutic grade essential oils to assist the body in its near constant detoxification task. A pure therapeutic grade essential oil is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-vital, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial.
Young Living are the world leaders in essential oils because of their unparalleled quality and no other company comes remotely close.
Young Living was established over 25 years ago by Gary Young, who was a farmer and researcher in the USA who was driven to reverse his own crippling health. Gary Young devoted his life to understanding the potency and benefits of plants. He passed away last year and he was regarded as the world’s leading authority on essential oils.
Below are the reasons why Young Living are the world leaders and what makes them unique.
Our health is in fact largely dependent on a number of different environmental or lifestyle factors. One of our lifestyle choices is what we choose to eat (our diet). That food can either be well sourced, properly prepared and nutrient dense (nourishing) or processed (toxic) and thus has a profound effect on our health (which is why I'm so passionate about it). But food is only one component of health.
Most of the ingredients contained in conventional personal care products and household cleaning products (and even dare I say some of the organic ones) are questionable at best or toxic at worse. We know that toxins cause inflammation and are the root cause of all modern disease. And here we are slathering and spraying them onto our and our kids' skin, hair and nails, and inhaling them in.
Young Living is more than just the world’s largest producer of the highest quality essential oils. They make an entire range of oil infused personal care products and household cleaning products from shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, mouth wash, hand soap, body soap, make up, laundry liquid, dishwashing liquid, household cleaner, and of course, the oils themselves are the original air fresheners and perfumes.
