What are essential oils?
Essential oils are used to flavor foods and can be found in things like toothpaste and mouthwash. Oils are in perfumes, skin care products, candles, and laundry detergents. However, not all oils are high quality. Many oils found in foods, cosmetics, and scented products are synthetic. Synthetic oils are typically made from petrochemicals in a lab and are created to try and duplicate the smell and properties of a plant. When you are ingesting or applying something that is synthetic, it is hard to break down or can be stored in fat cells. These types of synthetic oils work against your body and can be very harmful. A 1986 report by the National Academy of Sciences reports that 95 percent of the chemicals used in synthetic fragrances are derived from petroleum and include benzene derivatives, aldehydes and many other known toxins and synthesizers capable of causing cancer, birth defects, central nervous system disorders and allergic reactions.
Young Living Essential Oils are therapeutic grade which means they are 100% pure and derived straight from the plant. They contain the plant's own immunity, hormones, and scents. When oils are pure, they have the ability to work with your body, not against it, to bring about change in your health. Within 20 minutes of applying oils, they can be found in every cell of your body.
So you might be wondering how they extract these oils. To put it simply, oils are distilled from the “life blood” or "immune system" of plants. With most oils, the plant is harvested, then ground in order to be distilled over low heat and long periods of time. After the oil has separated from the water, it is then bottled, tested for purity and shipped straight to your door! These God-given tools were intelligently created to benefit our entire body.
