Young Living Essential Oils FAQs
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are natural, aromatic, and highly concentrated liquids distilled from plants. Because of their concentrated nature, they are extremely potent; in fact, one drop of peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 26 cups of peppermint tea! This potency means that they are more effective than fresh or dried herbs, and you only need to use a tiny amount of oil.
Aren’t essential oils a little bit ‘new age’?
The very opposite, actually! Essential oils date back 6,000 years and have been used in cultures all across the world! Their use is mentioned in the Bible 180 times, and there are thousands of references to essential oils in PubMed from the US National Library of Medicine (National Institutes of Health). Essential oils have a literally ancient track record for helping improve people’s health and have been around longer than Western medicine.
Why would you want to use essential oils?
Essential oils are a natural way to support a healthy lifestyle, help maintain physical and emotional wellness, clean and purify your home, care for your hair and skin, and promote spirituality. Many essential oils are immune-enhancing, mood-elevating, aromatic, regenerating, and oxygenating. Essential oils support the body’s natural defences and normally functioning body systems. Essential oils aid in maintaining normal cellular regeneration. They boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration, help reduce the appearance of ageing, improve mental clarity, and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.
How do you use essential oils?
You will constantly find new ways! Essential oils are used for aromatherapy, personal care, emotional well-being, nutritional supplements, massage therapy, household cleaners, and much, much more. You will find hundreds of ways to use them around your home, and they are great for making homemade gifts, too!

Why did you get into this?
Years ago now, my sister began to use essential oils. I thought it was a little weird, but happily accepted her gifts of stress-relieving roller balls, homemade scented body wash, and baby-friendly lotions. The more I used the products she made with essential oils, the more I realised there might be something to it. Soon we were using oils around the house to help us sleep, alleviate sickness, and even deal with one nasty bout of nail infection! (TMI?) I finally figured it was time to stop mooching oils of my sister and buy my own set. The rest was, as they say, history.
Why choose Young Living Essential Oils?
I took my sister’s advice, but also did my research. Young Living essential oils stood out because they are committed to purity and authenticity. When it comes to essential oils – farming, distilling, and sourcing is everything! They are the only essential oil company who own and run all of their own farms, so they can guarantee that the entire process, from planting the seed to sealing the bottle of oil, is done without pesticides or unsafe practices. It’s called the Seed to Seal Process and it produces the most authentic essential oils available today.
Anyone can visit the farms and learn about (or even participate in!) the harvest and distillation process. Weed control is done by hand, pest control is done with essential oils, and each batch of oil is rigorously tested. Unlike other essential oils on the market that rely on chemicals and processing, Young Living oils are never diluted, cut, or adulterated in any way. Using a proprietary, low-temperature distillation process that’s entirely chemical-free, these oils set the standard for purity, potency, and authenticity.
With the greatest selection of single oils and blends available and a commitment to providing the best possible 100% therapeutic grade essential oils, Young Living is unmatched and was an easy choice.
