I am so excited you’re interested in essential oils!

if you want to learn more about them and how to start using them, you’ve come to the right place. i’m not being dramatic when i say that these little plants have truly changed my life in more ways than one.

Oils are the lifeblood of a plant. The vital juices that are extracted from the flowers, seed, root, stem, leaf, rind, or other part of the organism. They contain the aromatic essence of the plant and have been used for thousands of years for different purposes in traditional beauty and health practices. 


Essential oils are all around us and are commonly used as fragrances or flavourings in everyday household products. But NOT all essential oils are created equal. Many are laden with synthetics, fillers, and other chemical compounds which compromise the purity of the essential oil.  


Pure essential oils are carefully extracted by cold press or slow distillation processes to ensure that all wellness giving constitutes of the oil remain in place. The extraction process is highly sensitive and cannot be rushed, and therefore it is imperative that you know the source of your essential oil as no two brands are created equal. 

Why am I obsessed with Young Living?
