what are essential oils

Essential oils are the vital (and aromatic) fluids of plants, shrubs, roots, herbs, flowers, seeds and trees. Think of the oil as a plant's "immune system" — it’s essential to the life and health of the plant. That’s why essential oils naturally work so well with our bodies!

what do they do

The ways that essential oils can benefit your life are seriously endless. From supporting your emotions, sleep, hormones, immunity, head tension, digestion — to skincare, replacing harmful cleaning chemicals in your home, ease teething discomfort for little ones, making your house smell super dreamy + so much more. This is just the beginning!

how to use young living essential oils

Topically — Apply the oils directly to your body straight from the bottle or by making custom blended rollers! It’s always recommended you dilute your YLEO with a carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil).

Aromatically — To breathe in the oils. You can do this by using the diffuser that comes in your starter kit, or you can put a drop or two in your hands, cup them over your nose, and mouth and breathe deeply.

Internally — To ingest essential oils by swallowing them. Either in drink or food, or by filling a vegetable capsule to take them like a vitamin. Not all oils are made to be ingested so please refer to the label for usage instructions. Young Living has a specific range of oils, the “Vitality” line, which are very clearly branded with a white label and are Non-GMO verified.
