Aromatherapy, which can be intimidating to many people, goes beyond the ease of purchasing pre-packaged bath salt blends and chemically enhanced candles. All the various electronic diffusers, bottles and bottles of oil, and fancy-sounding names. Getting started can open your eyes to an entirely new world of enjoyable, happy, healthy living.
The basics of aromatherapy are pretty simple once the important concepts are understood. Aromatherapy is practiced by using essential oils. Therapeutic or organic grade essential oils act as the chemical messengers and guards of the plant kingdom. Hundreds of different “volatile” (easily evaporated) compounds make up a single essential oil. Most of those compounds are very compatible with the make-up of the human body. The best part is, organic essential oils do for humans as they do for plants- act as chemical messengers by affecting our sense of smell as well as defending the body against foreign invaders by their anti-bacterial and anti-viral actions. 

It is important to understand the difference between organic or therapeutic grade essential oils and proclaimed therapeutic grade essential oils. The Food & Drug administration generally grades according to organic and non-organic. Many oil producers refer to their product as “therapeutic grade”. This can often be mis-interpreted. Young Living essential oils are organic, meaning no chemicals or pesticides are used in the entire Seed to Seal process. That also mean Young Living does not chemically enhance or alter their oils. Chemically enhanced oils, often found at chain stores, drug stores, convenient stores, grocery stores, and many other “over-the-counter” sources, can be extremely dangerous if used incorrectly or in the wrong situations. 

I use Young Living Essential Oils because of their Seed to Seal commitment. Seed to Seal is a unique 5-step process Young Living created and proudly stands by, as it is their only standard for creating pure, organic essential oils with the highest authenticity possible. The production is carefully monitored from the moment the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed into the bottle we purchase as consumers. Young Living applies the most demanding quality control possible to guarantee each and every customer is receiving essential oils precisely the way nature intended.  To learn more about the Seed to Seal process, visit the Seed to Seal tab at the top of the page.

It is also extremely important that each essential oil user knows how to properly use the oils. Please visit the Usage page to learn more about proper usage.
