Brand Matters

Just like with most things, the essential oil brand you use matters. Have you ever heard of the term Seed to Seal? 

The Seed to Seal commitment to purity is what sets Young Living apart from any other companies in the world. Young Living owns 16 farms all over the world, and works with partner farms that are held to extremely high standards. Young Living also distills 100% of their own oils, which means they can stand by their quality from beginning to end. They call it the “Seed to Seal” guarantee!


Inexpensive oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sources, which is why Young Living partners with certified farms and sources, with a focus on sustainability.


They can say with 100% guarantee that they can ensure what are in those little bottles of love + all their products - they are 100% PURE. From the time the seed is sourced, to when the oil is sealed into the bottle, they apply the most rigorous quality control to ensure you are receiving the essential oils exactly how nature intended.

Carrier Oils

Essential oils are extremely small so they can pass through the skin and into the body quickly. But if you want to keep the oils on your skin and dilute them to create more gentleness on the skin you can combine them with carrier oils.⁣

These larger oils that come from the fatty part of the plant can increase the length of time the⁣

essential oils stay on your skin and also prolong the aromatherapy effects.⁣

Some people mistakenly think using carrier oils reduces the effectiveness of the oil but really it can be the opposite. Dilution increases the surface area of absorption and can prevent sensitivities of certain oils.⁣

Common carrier oils include:⁣

• Almond oil⁣

• Avocado oil⁣

• Coconut oil⁣

• Jojoba oil⁣

• Olive oil⁣

• Pomegranate seed oil ⁣

Our favorite is Coconut oil or fractionated coconut oil (FCO). What is fractionated coconut oil? Coconut is a saturated fat and is usually sold at normal room temperature. FCO has some of the longer chain fatty acids removed so it is liquid at room temperature. FCO makes it easy for the times you just need a few drops of carrier oil to mix with your essential oil.⁣

What’s your favorite carrier oil and why? ⁣

Essential Oil Application

The science behind these oils is truly amazing! Here are the 4 most common ways essential oils are used today:⁣

🌱Topically – ⁣

Essential oils are able to penetrate the skin and pass into the blood stream and into different areas of the body for internal therapeutic benefits.⁣

🌱Aromatically – ⁣

There is great evidence that essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream when inhaled. The large amount of blood vessels in the lungs absorb the oils and then circulate them throughout the body.⁣

Using a diffuser can help you experience the benefits of essential oils. You can diffuse lavender to reduce stress, melaleuca to cleanse the air, wild orange to improve mood, frankincense for spiritual enlightenment, and peppermint to improve focus and energy.⁣

🌱Ingestion – ⁣

Essential oils can be taken internally  but it should be remembered that again, essential oils are powerful. Young Living essential oils are safe for internal use but a little bit goes a long way. Usually 1 drop is plenty mixed with water.⁣

Oils like peppermint, lemon, and frankincense have great internal benefits and can be taken with water. Other essential oils like clove and oregano need to be diluted and shouldn’t be taken internally for more than 1 week.⁣

🌱Personal Care – ⁣

Today, the fastest way essential oils are being used is by making homemade DIY personal care products. This is an excellent way to take advantage of essential oils to improve your beauty, home, and long term wellness.⁣

Some of the best DIY recipes to use essential oils with include: shampoo, body butter, toothpaste, bug spray, lip balm, and household cleaner.⁣

What are essential oils?

What are essential oils? ⁣

‘You could say that Essential oils are an extension of the earth’s and sun’s powers. Plants take in the light of the sun and minerals of the earth and transform them into healing medicines – nature’s medicines – Essential Oils’⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

Essential oils are the often referred to as plant blood. They are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed or root of a plant or tree and just one drop can have powerful health benefits.⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

They are typically created through the process of distillation which separates the oil and water based compounds of a plant by steaming.⁣⁣⁣ Essential oils are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma. By concentrating the oils of these plants you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil.⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

Essential oils are composed of very small molecules that can penetrate your cells, and some compounds in essential oils can even cross the blood-brain barrier. They differ from fatty oils (like those in vegetables or nuts) that come from large molecules because they cannot penetrate your cells so they are not therapeutic in the same manner.⁣⁣
