What are Essential Oils and How Can They Help Me?

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils (EO) are the essence or life force of the plant; AKA plant medicine. They are the highly concentrated version of the natural oils in plants. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to affect the body, mind and spirit. They were mankind’s first medicine. EO are derived from the seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers and fruit of the plant. The medicinal properties of these oils are remarkable. Did you know that pharmaceuticals are derived from the medicinal properties of plants?

What Do They Offer?

There are many powerful benefits of these amazing oils. Essential oils are not just for fragrance, they can be used to change your life by supporting your health; they are so versatile. Yes, they can provide air purification, but also restore balance to the body. The essential oil information I’m sharing with you is about the Young Living brand of oils as they are for therapeutic use and holistic health care. Other brands of essentials oils are aroma-grade or fragrance-grade and do not offer the medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Most essential oils are antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. Many provide anti-cancerous, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antitumor, antiparasitic, and antiseptic properties. Essential oils can help improve your mood, alleviate allergy symptoms, or alter your milk supply, enhance your spiritual practice, improve hormone function, improve sleep, improve digestion, improve energy level and motivation, provide stress relief, improve weight management, and they promote optimal wellness and health.

How Do I Use Them?

These oils work fast. They reach the molecules in the brain within 22 seconds. Within 2 minutes, they will be found in the bloodstream, and within 20 minutes they will affect every cell in the body. There are three ways you can use the oils: aromatically, topically, and internally. You can diffuse them, apply them directly to your skin, or you can ingest them, if they are deemed ingestible. Not all essential oils are recommended for all three types of use, so education is important.

Do you want to eliminate harmful chemicals and toxins in your life? These oils can replace your household cleaners, laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, deodorant, facial and body care, and replace over-the-counter supplements to name a few. You can literally ditch the drug store. If you are reading this, you may be pregnant, have children, or know someone who has children. These oils allow you to clean your home and not worry about baby ingesting harmful chemicals and toxins. Being a mom, nurse and lactation consultant, it is really important to me to have high quality, potent products in my life and that I can recommend to clients and their families. Breastfeeding is the beginning of a healthy lifestyle for your family and using these essential oils is a natural next step on your wellness journey.

My Personal Experience

I have always been interested in and used essential oils in my life. Thieves was my gateway Young Living brand oil. Thieves spray is what my acupuncturist uses instead of Lysol to disinfect the room after treatment sessions. Then, my colleague introduced me to additional Young Living oils in her family practice community health clinic. Working in healthcare, requires an evidence-based approach to healing. Thankfully, there is research to confirm the benefits of these plants and their healing properties. Personally, I am sensitive to smells, especially perfumes and cleaning chemicals, but I love how these oils smell and how they make me feel. Have you ever used Lysol or bleach and thought about how does it made you feel? I get watery eyes and my throat and head hurts after using these chemicals. Being mindful of my environmental footprint and always looking for ways to improve my health and my family’s health, it was a blessing to discover the Young Living brand of essential oils. I have replaced so many of my home care, personal care, and cleaning products with Young Living essential oils, and you can, too. I appreciate knowing every ingredient in my products and how to pronounce them. I love the Young Living brand of oils so much, that I became a distributor. They have truly changed my life and I am delighted to offer some therapeutic grade products to help you in your daily living.

Why I Use the Young Living Brand of Essential Oils

Not all essential oils are created equally. I learned this after years of using over-the-counter brands of essential oils and not seeing the holistic effect that the Young Living brand offers. I like Young Living for a number of reasons and one is because they offer a seed to seal approach. This means they control every single aspect of production. They own their own farms and partner with farms that work up to their high standards. They test for and ensure their products are pesticide free, toxin free, no GMOs. They have their own distilleries and bottle their own oils. Young Living guarantees there is no purity or quality control issues. They are hands on through every step of the process from start to finish. They offer 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils, which is the highest quality essential oil on the market. The Young Living brand of essential oils have truly changed my life. If you are interested in learning more or trying these oils, I would be honored to welcome you to the Young Living family.
