Understanding Essential Oils

Essential oils are nature’s volatile aromatic compounds generated within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. They are usually extracted through steam distillation, hydrodistillation, or cold-pressed extraction.

The power of an essential oil lies in its constituents and their synergy. Each essential oil is composed of 200-500 different bioconstituents, which make them very diverse in their effects. No two oils are alike.

Essential oils have a unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and travel throughout the blood and tissues. The unique lipid-soluble structure of essential oils is very similar to the makeup of our cell membranes, and the molecules of essential oils are also relatively small, which enhances their ability to penetrate into the cells. When topically applied to the feet or soft tissue, essential oils can travel through the body in a matter of minutes.

Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible.

Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature’s pure essence. Amazing!
