Essential Oils 101 in less Than 3 Minutes

I fell in love with the powerful benefits of Young Living pure essential oils over 3 years ago. First-hand experience has taught me the difference between Young Living’s pure eo’s and watered down “store-bought” brands.

When I received my premium starter kit, I was excited to learn that this kit would provide support for nearly every wellness challenge I would face. It’s now my passion to share these benefits with those of you who want to move from synthetic, quick-fix solutions to using powerful tools that support your body.

Plants are unique.  On the exterior, you can see the difference between a rose and a lemon.   Inside each plant is its lifeblood, which is as unique to each e.o. as their exterior is.  These internal differences are what allow each e.o. it’s unique and powerful wellness benefits.

Essential oils can be diffused or applied to the body.  In addition, our pure Vitality (white label) oils can be consumed.  

Let’s start with Lavender, the most well-known essential oil.  Therapeutic effects: Calming, soothing, muscle calming, emotional support, cleansing, regenerative.  Common uses: sleep, stress, and dry skin, acne, etc.

Above, we covered some single essential oils but in addition, Young Living has some amazing proprietary blends. Their benefits are noted below.
