With so many essential oils on the market today, it can be very confusing for people starting their oily journey. Using essential oils is just that, a journey. It’s a lifestyle of wellness it’s not about buying a few bottles of oils and diffuse them to freshen the aroma of the room.
If you’re like me, that’s exactly what I thought when I first heard about essential oils. I was under the impression they were used as an air freshener and that is the case with the majority of essential oil companies. However, I never purchase without researching the best deal for the best price. As a result of my research, I learned 100% Pure Essential oils provide so much more than pleasant smells.

What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils support wellness and our body systems. They are aromatic, concentrated plant extracts. Oils are harvested from plants, herbs, and trees. The oils inside a plant is extracted into a highly concentrated and beneficial form.
Young Living extracts oils through steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing. I personally have watched the distillation process at the Mona Farm in Utah and it is fascinating!
The essence drawn from the plants is what helps with infection control, humidity control, hormonal effects, repelling various insects and other pests, and the healing of wounds.
Surprisingly, essential oils don’t actually feel oily. They are called oils because they contain the oil-soluble compounds in the plant. Essentials oils evaporate quickly after coming in contact with oxygen.
