What Are Essential Oils
Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from plants. The chemistry consists of hundreds of unique chemical compounds and they can be obtained from the roots, seeds, shrub, flowers, leaves and trees.
Essential oils are considered the life blood of the plant that initiates regeneration into the cells. Anything that our blood does for us is what the essential oils do for the plant. They carry nutrients & oxygen through our body and can effectively combat the damaging effects of toxins, impurities and harmful substances in and around our bodies. The fragrance of the oils work on the limbic system in the brain where emotions are stored and can help relax and clear the mind.

They have been around for over 20 years and they have an exclusive Seed to Seal process which is a promise of purity in five careful steps. Their Seed to Seal process ensures us that they cultivate their seeds, plant them on their own farms, weed by hand, harvest, distill on site and package in house. They are a company who is driven by their product, not profit. If one of their crops has a bad season, then they don't distribute that oil. They do NOT believe in using fillers or synthetics just to sell a product.
Seed: The best essential oils come from specific plant species that have been specifically studied for their therapeutic value and carefully selected.

Distill: Low pressure steam distillation ensures that the beneficial plant compounds in each batch are not compromised.
Test: Young Living never accepts diluted, cut or adulterated essential oils and all oils are tested in internal labs as well as in third-party facilities to ensure they meet demanding specification and exceed international standards.
