WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
What are oils?
By definition, essential oils are the vital (and aromatic) fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. You can think of the oil as a plant’s “immune system” — it is essential to the lifer and health of the plant. Oils are typically extracted through careful steam distillation that ensures all the important, therapeutic, and health-giving constituents of the oil remain intact.
We actually use essential oils a lot in every day life. They are used to flavor foods and can be found in things like toothpaste and mouthwash to give it that minty kick. Oils are also in perfumes and skin care products. They are many places that you wouldn’t guess but not all oils are created equally. Oils found in food and cosmetics are typically something that is synthetic, your body processes it as a toxin therefore it becomes harder to break down or can be stored in fat cells. These types of synthetic oils work against your body.

These pure oils are distilled from the “life blood”of plants and contain the plant’s own immunity, hormones, and scents. When you pick a rose and break off the stem, you’ll always notice there is a bit of watery substance. This is the source that the pure essential oils come from. This God given source was intelligently created to benefit our whole body.
It is a highly temperamental process to distill oils from plants and it can not be rushed. Young Living is a part of the entire process from “Seed to Seal”. They make sure that the soil the crops are planted in have never been touched with pesticides or herbicides so that toxins are never present in the plants or in the oils.
