WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?
My love affair for the oils began almost 3 years ago. While I have been acquainted with oils for years (they are big in the world of yoga), I thought they were just for the calming aroma to help relax the mind for meditation.
Three years ago, a friend invited me to learn more. I realized that essential oils effect us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. They also powerfully effect our vibration and can help us transform our lives, transitioning through a change, even faster.
While I use the oils in my coaching practice to clients step into their Extraordinary Life, the oils are so much more versatile.
I have used them to:
- get chemicals out of our home (check out the Chemical Free Home series!)
- help us sleep better
- create a rockin’ immune system
- give us more energy and focus
- support our digestive system
- and so much more!
I can honestly say I will never not use essential oils again!
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are oils from the plant, distilled using steam or a cold-press process, allowing the therapeutic benefit of each essential oil to be maintained in every batch.
Since ancient times, essential oils have been used to support and aid the health and well being of humans.
Molecules in the essential oils mimic the molecules that our body uses to repair itself.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS
Specific instructions are located on the label of each bottle but here are some general uses.
Inhale: Inhale directly from an open bottle or rub a drop of essential oil between your palms and inhale.
Diffuse: Diffuse your favorite essential oils in one of Young Living’s exclusive diffusers—allowing everyone in the room to reap the therapeutic benefits of the oils! (I have been known to diffuse what I know my family needs!)
Always follow the label’s instructions.
Neat: Some essential oils are safe and beneficial to use directly on the skin. Simply place 2-3 drops directly on the desired area and massage in. Rub 1-2 drops on the bottoms of your feet. Over 2000 pores on the soles of your feet allow the essential oil to reach every cell of your body in 20 minutes. (Always test an oil on a small patch of skin to see how it feels for you. Everyone reacts differently to the oils.)
Dilute: Some essential oils need to be diluted with a carrier oil (any pure vegetable oil). I like to make my own body creams, roll-on applicators and perfume atomizers by adding our favorite essential oils and storing them in glass containers for future use. (I actually choose to dilute all of my oils.)
Bath water: Add a few drops to a bowl of Epsom salts, then dissolve into your bath water or foot soak.
Always consult bottle labels for usage directions.
In capsule: Place several drops of oil into a gelatin capsule and swallow with water
In liquid: Add your favorite essential oil to a glass of water, juice or plant-based milk and swallow.
In food: Add 1-2 drops of oil (to taste) to meals when cooking. No need to buy fresh oregano for your spaghetti sauce anymore when you can use Oregano Vitality essential oil! Add your favorite citrus essential oil to yogurt, hummus or salsa for instant flavor.
Directly in mouth: Put a drop of Peppermint Vitality on your tongue for instant breath freshening. A drop of Thieves® Vitality on your tongue to support your immune system.
WHY DO I CHOOSE YOUNG LIVING?
Because it is the best! 🙂 Okay, while that just might be my opinion, the truth is, the facts are with me.
It is the only essential oil company that controls every step of the production of their oils, we call it the Seed to Seal® process and it truly sets Young Living apart from their competitors. Each batch of essential oil undergoes internal and third party quality testing.
Many of Young Living’s essential oils and oil-infused products are safe to take internally. Most other brands on the market have warning labels instructing “Do not take internally”.
Young Living is a US-based business and has been in business for over 20 years.
It is the only brand I trust to use on my own children!
