Essential Oils

younglivingEssential oils are gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility, but their use is not new.  The use of botanicals as healing agents is a long-standing practice throughout human history.  In fact, essential oils and other botanicals have been used in wellness practices as early as at least 5,000 years ago.

Essential oils carry the essence of the plants in such a potent form that a single drop of essential oil can equal multiple teaspoons of the dried herb (for instance, 1 drop of peppermint oil equals more than 25 cups of peppermint tea and oils can be up to 70x more potent than their dried herbal form). And they can be used or applied in a multitude of ways and combinations to bring powerful results to your tasks, atmosphere, and bodies.

All essential oils are made up of various chemical constituents whose research is continually growing, especially in recent years.  In addition to these impressive qualities, they often also transfer very pleasurable sensory experiences within minutes because of their fragrances and restorative natures, making them impactful on our brain chemistry, emotional well-being, and spiritual wellness.  This makes for a highly vast and diverse list of uses for essential oils.

But the remarkable uses of essential oils can only be maximized when purity is involved.  Since quality regulations are virtually non-existent, knowing where your oils come from and how they are created is crucial to ensuring safety and effectiveness.  Also important is knowing how to use each oil properly.
