For many of us, wading into the waters of essential oils is a bit mysterious and a teeny bit overwhelming. Not to fear. Even the most experienced essential oil enthusiast was once in that exact same position. We are here to help.
Why We Choose Young Living
Let’s face it, there are oodles of essential oil companies out there and deciphering the difference between “organic”, “100% pure”, “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade”, and all the other labels can make your head spin (there’s an oil for that). Truth be told, there is very little regulation when it comes to essential oils. The only requirement by the government is that each bottle contain 5% actual essential oil. If it meets this requirement then any of those labels are permissible even if mostly what you are purchasing is filler. There is limited regulation when it comes to distillation (extraction of the oils) as well, meaning some companies opt for a higher yield, more cost effective route by using chemical solvents which is then present in the final product. This can lead to skin reactions and render the oil useless. Proper heat and pressure are needed to protect the properties that make oils so effective and Young Living has mastered this process which guarantees you’ll be able to use less oil with consistent results.
