Why Essential Oils?
So what are essential oils?
Essential oil is the aromatic liquid extracted from plants through steam distillation. Essential oils can be used therapeutically for inspiring a positive emotional state, enhancing physical wellness, purify your home, refine your skin, and create a deep spiritual awareness.
“Because of the tiny molecular structure of the components of an essential oil they are extremely concentrated. One drop contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. Numerically that is a 4 with 19 zeros after it. (40,000,000,000,000,000,000) We have one hundred trillion cells in our bodies, that’s a lot. But one drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in our body with 40,000 molecules. Considering that it only takes one molecule of the right kind to open the receptor site and communicate with the DNA to alter cellular function, you can see why even one drop or inhaling a small amount of oil vapor can have profound effects on the body, brain, and emotions.”– Healing Oils of the Bible David Stewart Ph.D
Essential Oil companies are popping up left and right! Purity, safety, and efficacy are drastically different in the essential oil world. Most essential oils on the market are highly adulterated and can actually be dangerous to use in a therapeutic way. Inferior companies use synthetics to create essential oil, agrochemicals on their crops, harsh chemicals to extract the oil more quickly, and/or they add fillers to their bottles of oil and sadly do not have to disclose that information. Young Living is superior because of their Seed to Seal guarantee. They have control of the process from the seeds that are planted, the harvesting techniques used, and the rigorous testing process of ALL of the oils, all the way to placing the seal on the bottle.
Young Living has the largest variety of single oils, oil blends, and oil-infused products of any company out there. I have personally researched numerous companies, and Young Living was the BEST! Hands down, they are the leader in the industry. No other company even came close. For this reason, I trust their oils and products for my family.
Now I, personally, am a Jesus lovin’ girl! I believe when God created the earth He gave us everthing we needed to live happy, healthy and abundant lives. He created plants on the third day. He knew we wouldn't take care of our bodies as He intended. So He loved us so much that before we were even created He created what our bodies would need to live healthy lives!
Ezekiel 47:12 says, “Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear because the water from the sanctuary flow to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for HEALING.”
Essential oils or their aromatic plants are mentioned over 600 times in the Bible. SIX HUNDRED! If they’re good enough for Jesus, they are most certainly good enough for me.

Essential Oils Safety Tips:
- DO NOT put pure essential oils directly in eyes or ear canal.
- If an essential oil gets in your eye, use a carrier oil around the eye for relief. DO NOT use water! Oil and water DON'T mix!
- If an essential oil feels hot to the skin, immediately apply a carrier oil, not water, on the area for relief. Water and oil do not mix and will spread the oil. The carrier oil will dillute the essential oil and relief will be almost immediate.
- If a rash occurs at anytime after application of an oil, refrain from applying topically for a few days, and start back slowly with dilution of a carrier oil.
- Pregnant women, epileptics, and those with high blood pressure should consult their doctors as there are a few oils that should be avoided.
- Citrus oils are photosensitive, so if applied topically, avoid being in the sun for a long period of time.
- Always read the label and use the oil as instructed.
- If taking medication on a regular basis, always consult your doctor.
