Essential Oils are the most powerful part of the plant. They are highly concentrated and more powerful than dried herbs. Harvested from farm-grown and wildcrafted plants, herbs and trees, essential oils are concentrated plant extracts obtained by careful steam distillation, cold pressing and resin tapping.
Essential Oils are more than nice scents; these powerful plant extracts provide support for every system in the body: skeletal, muscular, circulatory, endocrine, hormones, respiratory and immune systems. There is virtually no limit to how essential oils can be used. They are used extensively for our emotions and brain support. An oil in a diffuser can soothe a child’s tough day at school and provide a calming effect when you’ve had a stressful day at work. Essential oils are useful, powerful allies in our quest for wellness.
I started using essential oils exactly one year ago and they have changed my life and my family’s wellness journey! So much so that I am currently working on my Aromatherapy Diploma from the Centre of Excellence in Manchester, England.
Our home is a sanctuary, and it is where total wellness begins. We use a line of non-toxic household products called Thieves, which combines the strength of Thieves essential oil blend with naturally derived, plant-based ingredients that is effective and safe around every member of my family, including children and pets.
Young Living also has a list of products and essential oils certified by Health Canada as Natural Health Products (NHPs) to aid in everyday conditions such as acne, coughs and colds, digestive health, eczema and dermatitis, headaches, joint and muscle pain, and stress. We all want natural remedies to help us with our health.
I believe that you and your family deserve products that are genuine, free of synthetic chemicals, and of unmatched purity. Young Living’s Seed to Seal® promise is both a promise to you, and a reflection of the company’s sense of global stewardship.
