Are you looking for a QUICK, EASY way to improve your health and wellness? You can be on the road to feeling great in just a few minutes a day!!! How? Essential Oils.
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants, including the seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruit, etc. Just as we have oils in our skin that protect us, essential oils are protective to the plant. They’re sort of the immune system of the plant. They have the unique ability to work the same way in us! Essential oils can actually penetrate our cell membranes, and each drop contains 40 million trillion molecules that affect the body at the cellular level.
Essential oils are comprised of a number of chemical constituents such as terpenes, alcohols, esters, aldehydes, ketones and phenols, all of which are easily affected by a number of factors. Some of those factors include what part of the plant the oil came from, soil condition, fertilizer (organic or chemical), geographical region, climate, altitude, harvest methods, and the distillation process. The key to producing 100% pure, unadulterated essential oils is preserving as many of these delicate compounds as possible. They’re easily destroyed by high temperature and pressure, as well as by contact with chemically reactive metals such as copper or aluminum.
How do Essential Oils Help the Body?
I notice a difference in my mood within seconds of inhaling or applying Young Living essential oils. One of my favorite essential oils is JOY because inhaling it and applying it as a perfume keeps me peaceful and calm.
Since essential oils are a very small aromatic compound and they are fat soluble, they penetrate into the body very quickly and leave the body very quickly. According to inhalation studies, the essential oil molecules can exist in the blood within minutes of inhalation and topical use (Dr. Peter Minke, interview in EO Magazine). That is why it is important that you avoid lower grade essential oils that can have solvents and other components.
Not All Oils Are Created Equal
After I did my research on essential oils, I found that not all oils are the same. Many of the oils that you find for “a good deal” online and even health food stores are often less expensive because the quality of the product is compromised. There are fillers, solvents, or other additives that dilute the oil. As a result, you use double or even triple the amount of oil and you are applying/inhaling unknown fillers or solvents into your body. Be cautious when you read “100% Therapeutic Quality.”
I trust the Young Living brand because their Seed to Seal promise. I have had amazing results using this brand of essential oils for my family and friends. A little oil goes a long way. With one application, you will discover the high therapeutic quality of their products.
A Few Minutes a Day?
YES! I am a Homeschooling Mom of 6 and I have experienced the many benefits of using YL Essential oils. In a few minutes I can add a drop of JOY essential oil to my locket diffuser, fill my home diffuser with water and add a few drops of Orange and Cedarwood essential oil and press “on,” and fill a glass with water and a couple drops of Lemon essential oil for my gentle morning cleanse (and I still have a 30 seconds to spare!). In Our Oily Family, Young Living essential oils have helped to:
- Create a relaxing atmosphere
- Promote calmness and focus (especially in our homeschool day!)
- Increase overall health and wellness in our family
- Stimulate energy especially on those busy days
- Promote increased immune support and MUCH MORE!
