Essential Oils

Essential oils are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs and trees through distillation. Essential oils can be used three ways, applied, through aroma therapy and consumed.

Young Living therapeutic grade oils promote healing, fight infection, and enhance the body physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

While no one is certain when essential oils were first used, records dating back to 4500 B.C. describe the use of substances with aromatic properties for religious rituals and medical applications. For many centuries, essential oils and other aromatics were used for religious rituals, the treatment of illness and other physical and spiritual needs.

Its use is well documented in the Bible. Would you like to get a whiff of a Holy Anointing Oil?
Have you ever wondered why the Three Wise Men brought gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh to the Christ child?
What about the Gold; was it perhaps ‘Liquid Gold’?
Would you like to gain insight on why these essential oils were such highly prized commodities during Biblical times?
Jesus received these oils on numerous occasions; Moses stopped the plague with the Holy anointing oils; Roman soldiers applied these oils for courage as they prepared for battle.

Currently it’s estimated that nearly 80 percent of the world’s population use herbs for some aspect of primary health care. In the United States, more than 1,500 botanicals are sold as dietary supplements. Essential oils can be put in capsules and taken orally.

How And Why Essential Oils Work So Well

Aroma therapy. Who doesn’t have reactions to scents? Does the smell of sugar cookies or bread baking make you think of your Grandma or Mother? Well, different scents have different healing properties.

Applied. Essential oils mixed in a carrier oil have been used to fight fungal infections, burns, scrapes and illness.

Consumed. Many of the products can be placed in a capsule and taken orally, and some come ready to drink.

Their unique features are that they:

Pass easily through our skin and cells membranes.
Diffuse through the entire body within half an hour.
Go directly to the brain through the olfactory bulb.
Affect our feelings and thoughts because smell is our most emotional sense.
Perform multiple functions because of their structural complexity

This is why one essential oil can do so many different things for you all at once–physically, emotionally, and mentally–with just a few drops in the air or on your skin.


Safety Tips for Using Essential Oils

1. If you ever feel heat or discomfort from using an essential oil, putting a pure vegetable oil on it will “cool” it off within seconds.
2. Do not use the “spicy” oils (such as Peppermint,Cinnamon,Thyme,etc.) on the throat or other delicate areas. Use them on the feet or other areas where the skin is less sensitive.
3. Pay attention to specific notices on your oil bottle labels. Sometimes you’ll see a recommendation not to go out in the sun after using certain oils.
4. Don’t put essential oils in your eyes or directly into your ears.
5. If pregnant, consult your “how-to” book for oils that are appropriate and inappropriate.
6. Consult with your “how-to” book for how to use essential oils with your children.
7. It’s a good idea to first mix oils intended for a bath with a dispersing agent, such as Bath Gel Base or a mixture of bath salts.
So, Why Choose Young Living Essential Oils?
In a word: Quality. A poor quality oil can actually be harmful, especially if used repeatedly on the skin. Oils that have been distilled too quickly or with too much heat and pressure will not have the balanced proportion of components that give an essential oil such safety and effectiveness. The components making up an essential oil cooperate to produce their healing effect and, if these are altered in any way, the natural synergy is upset. Oils from plants that have been grown improperly, picked at the wrong time of day, left lying in fields too long, or otherwise degraded by improper distillation or additives are not high quality. For this reason, Young Living not only has its own organic farms, but also contracts with farmers in other countries to grow plants to Young Livings standards as well. Quality control testing of every batch of oil by 2-4 independent laboratories further guarantees that not only our own oils, but those acquired from wholesalers around the world meet the highest standards under the most rigorous testing conditions.

Your Helpful Essential Oil Tips


For Scent-Sational smelling towels, sheets, clothes, etc. place a few drops of your favorite essential oil onto a small piece of terry cloth and toss into the clothes dryer while drying. Add 5 drops essential oil to 1/4 cup fabric softener or water and place in the center cut of the wash.


Drop about 4 drops of peppermint oil along dog’s spine, and sit back to watch. The fleas come tumbling out of the coat, either anesthetized or dead. Just combed them off. This is for Dalmatian size dog. Use less peppermint oil for smaller dogs, and dilute for cats. Bugs despise peppermint oil!

Orange oil is also wonderful. Orange oil is sometimes called “Orangacide” by fleas. I found this quote on the Internet: “Orange oil breaks down the wax in their exoskeletons almost right away and they die FAST. I noticed that within 5 minutes of using it most of them were dead, within 45 minutes I had a one hundred percent kill rate.”

If your pet is infested, grab a couple fleas and put them in a jar and then drop in one drop of orange oil and let us know how it goes!


To make a natural flea collar, saturate a short piece of cord or soft rope with Pennyroyal or Tea Tree oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia), roll up in a handkerchief and tie loosely around the animal’s neck.
I don’t suppose anyone has ever tried using essential oils on animals have they?
Why, yes indeed they have. To learn more about essential oils and animals, click here.
