Hello! My name is Nicole, an independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. My goal is to help educate you on the proper use of various oils so you and your families live a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Essential oils are extremely concentrated substances. One drop is often powerful enough for almost every situation. Many people assume that since essential oils originate from plant sources they are without risk, but that is not always the case. Essential oils have the potential to cause minor reactions, such as skin irritation, or more serious consequences like respiratory failure and cancer, when not used appropriately. Some of the major areas of concern include, “overdose, neurotoxins, inhaled allergens, adverse skin reactions, and carcinogens.” (Challenges Facing Essential Oil Therapy: Proof of Saftey, Tisserand, Robert, Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA) Conference, 10-2007)

I am glad essential oils are easily accessible to anyone who wishes to purchase them- I only wish they each came with adequate educational material so consumers could learn about the oil and how it is best used. That's what I'm here for! There is no regulated standard, and because of this, it is up to us as distributors to help educate you and provide you with the proper materials for use of each essential oil before we use them.

Since everything we apply to our skin has the potential to be absorbed, I want to be sure you have a quality essential oil free of pesticides, contaminants, synthetic constituents, or other unnatural substances. As an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oils, I have made it a top priority of mine to provide the best educational information “oilers” need in order to effectively and safely use YL Essential Oils. 

“Pure essential oils and absolutes are very concentrated. Many pounds of herbs, flowers, resins, or fruits are used to produce small amounts of oils…Only small amounts of oils are needed to gain results…Using too much essential oil can sometimes have a boomerang effect and aggravate, rather than soothe, symptoms” –Coleen K. Dodt, the essential oils book
