Essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant - they are the "life force" or "life blood" of a plant and help the plant to survive and thrive in varying environmental conditions. Essential oils are distilled from shrubs, flowers, tree roots, bushes, fruit, rinds, resins, and herbs. In humans, essential oils provide support to the different body systems. To provide you with a few examples of the benefits of essential oils (Young Living Canada's Natural Health Products) can provide natural remedies for headaches, acne, cough and cold symptoms, eczema and dermatitis, digestive discomfort, burns, cuts, bruises, and can assist with the relief of joint or muscle pain associated with strains, sprains, and rheumatoid arthritis. Essential oils also provide powerful emotional support, helping us on our journeys of releasing negative emotions, forgiving, and helping us to feel grounded, balanced, joyful, and uplifted! This is just a small snapshot of what essential oils can do for us!
Within seconds of being inhaled or applied topically, essential oils can be found in the bloodstream! Because of this, it is SO important to be aware of the quality of the oils you are using. Unfortunately, not all essential oils are created equally - many have fillers, perfumes, synthetics, chemicals, and toxins in them, which can be harmful to our bodies and our health. This is why it's very important to do your research before buying oils and also if you already have essential oils you may have purchased.
Young Living has a "Seed to Seal" process, which ensures quality every step of the way - from the land where the seed is planted, to the rigorous testing of the oils, to the sealing of the bottle. Young Living is the world leader in essential oils and works to provide the purest, most authentic products for every person and every lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of essential oils. What I love so much about Young Living is their transparency. I don't know any other essential oil company that is so open about their entire process from the seeds that are chosen to be planted to the oils that arrive at our doorsteps. Young Living also welcomes members to visit their farms and distilleries so that members can see the "Seed to Seal" process for themselves.
