So… why Young Living essential oils and not other companies’ products? Well, let’s discuss it in depth in this blog post! There are so many reasons why we love using Young Living Essential Oils and their other products in our home. After using dozens of different brands over the years, when I found Young Living and doing a ton of research, I knew I had found “the one.” Come see why!
Why Young Living Essential Oils?
1 Seed-to-Seal guarantee. They oversee the entire process, from seed sowing to harvest to bottling and distribution. Selecting seeds that produce the highest value is a vital first step in the Seed-to-Seal process. Young Living’s standards are high, from seed to soil, water and weed and pest control. They closely oversee every single step of the process.
2 Young Living owns its own farms to be sure that they have the best quality soil and care for their crops. On average, they use only 39% of their harvest because they will only use the best of the best. They do not cut corners. Young Living distills right there, on their farms, using ancient and modern techniques.
3 Young Living’s quality is unmatched. Young Living never dilutes, cuts or adulterates essential oil products. They aim for consistency in quality and they test their oils repeatedly with their own las and 3rd-party groups.
4 Have you heard the word “distill?” It is the process in which essential oils are made.
Take a tea bag, for example. You steep it in hot water and the first steep is the most powerful, the most flavorful, the most precious. Now, steep that same tea bag 4 or 5 times. How will the “tea” be? What will it taste like? It will be weak ans barely taste like tea, right?
Well, Young Living uses first distill ONLY. Other companies use essential oils that the batches have gone through several distills and several even have a “complete distill, which means it has gone through 4 previous distills. The result will be watered down, weaker version of essential oils.
5 Young Living does not use fillers, synthetics or artificial fragrances in their essential oils. Smelling and using Young Living and others side by side will definitely prove to you this fact. It is easy for me to tell now (like when lavender or peppermint smell like candy instead of the actual deep, natural plants they came from). It would defeat the purpose of trying to go “natural” when using products that aren’t, right?
6 Young Living has been around for 20 years and their expertise and quality are truly unmatched. Their customer service is wonderful and quick, their shipping costs and speed are very competitive and their perks are amazing.
Those are just a few of my reasons. There are many more. 🙂 What are YOUR reasons for using Young Living? Please share!

Ways to Use Essential Oils
Dietary: That means ingesting a drop or two at a time in water, tea or other liquids.
Aromatic: You inhale the essential oils when drops are put in a diffuser with water.
Topical: You apple the essential oils on your skin, diluted in cream or oil or neat (undiluted).
Dilute: This means that some oils are too “hot” or strong to be used on their own, so you have to add a carrier oil or fragrance-free lotion like made out of shea butter.
Photosensitivity: Some oils, like citrus ones, can discolor fabric or skin when exposed to the sun. Read the labels and do not use when sunbathing or when you will be out in direct sunlight any given amount of time.
