Essential Oils

Essential oils are the cornerstone to how I built my healthy lifestyle. I'm using oils every hour, that's how good this stuff is. Check out some of the links below to learn how you too can use essential oils on the daily!

I only use Young Living Essential Oils because I have complete confidence in their quality, purity and sustainability as one of the most respected and environmentally friendly companies on the planet.

What are they?

Essential oils are like the blood of the plant. They carry nutrients, help to heal injuries the plant sustains, they carry messages from one part of the plant to the next, and help the plant to thrive. Many of the healthy properties found in a plant's oil can benefit the human body. To receive these benefits, we steam distill plant materials like leaves, stems, flowers, and extract a concentrated amount of oil. It takes 27 square feets of lavender plants to make one 15ml bottle of lavender oil. Citrus oils like grapefruit or lemon are made by cold pressing the rinds, and sappy oils like copaiba or frankincense are gathered by resin tapping the tree and steam distilling the sap.

How do you use them?

High quality, therapeutic grade oils like Young Living's can be used in so many ways that go beyond "smelling nice," These top-of-the-line oils can be used topically to support the body, some reaching the bloodstream within 26 seconds after application. They can be used aromatically, creating a calming environment that smells heavenly. The Vitality oils can also be used internally, and are ideal for cooking, adding flavor to water, or spicing up baked goods. It is critical that you do NOT consume essential oils that are not Young Living's. Young Living has worked with the American FDA to ensure these oils are safe and approved for consumption.

why young living?

Young Living is the oldest essential oil company in the world. They are the only company that owns or co-ops their own farms worldwide, allowing them to oversee every aspect of the Seed to Seal process. Young Living never uses pesticides on their plants, preferring to weed by hand to preserve the quality of each plant. Plants are tested each hour to determine the time when their beneficial constituents are strongest. Once distilled, each can of oil runs through over 60 tests (including multiple 3rd party tests) to ensure they are unadulterated, unpolluted, and the highest quality oil on the market. Young Living's integrity and commitment to purity is unmatched by any other oil company on the market, and their commitment to environmentally-friendly, sustainable farming ensures these oils can be enjoyed for decades to come.
