Essential Oils

Essential Oils have been used for centuries as natural remedies, for personal care and in the home.  The earliest know use of essential (or aromatic) oils dates back to cave painting from France in 18,000 BCE and the Egyptians were well known for their use of oils as early as 4500 BCE in both religious practices and for personal use.  Use of oils has also been common throughout history in India, China, Greece, Rome, Persia, and throughout Europe (and widely used during the Plague).  It wasn’t until 1928 that René-Maurice Gattefossé, a French chemist, used the term “aromatherapie” while he was researching the medicinal applications for essential oils.  They represent nature made and chemical free at its finest!

Now, chemicals invade pharmaceuticals, beauty products, home cleaning agents and even baby items making it difficult, and oftentimes dangerous, to have and use said products.  Recently, there has been a push towards getting back to healthy living and that must include the products we bring into our homes. For myself, that includes replacing many of the chemical laden items with natural remedies that work.  If you’re not a DIY-er, there’s good news…..You have options!

Young Living began over 20 years ago with a home-build distillery in Utah and has since expanded to farm all around the world.  The five step Seed to Seal process begins with superior seeds to cultivate plants that flourish and create some of the world’s most notable essential oils.  You can learn more about the proprietary Seed to Seal process here.

I get my essential oils wholesale from Young Living and am amazed at the amount of other types of products they offer.  From Thieves Hand Soap to aromatherapy Lip Gloss, blends for babies and pets, plus bars, treats and vitamins, you are bound to find products you can use and enjoy.

Essential Oils can be used in three basic ways: Topically, Internally, Aromatically with the latter being the one most people are familiar with.

Topically
I mix Lavender and Frankincense into my DIY body butter.

You can also dilute your choice of oils to wear as a perfume and/or wearable aromatherapy.

Internally
I enjoy Young Living’s Vitality Essential Oils daily, whether its a drop of Lime in my water or Thieves in my oatmeal!

You can also drop Vitality oils directly under the tongue for immediate absorption or add a few drops to your favorite dish for added flavor.

Aromatically
I wear a lava stone bracelet that acts as a personal diffuser so I can keep my oils with me all day.  As a mom, my current favorite is Stress Away which is a blend of Copaiba (Copaifera reticulata), Lime (Citrus aurantifolia), Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica), Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia), Ocotea (Ocotea quixos), and Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) oils.

If you purchase the Young Living Premium Starter Kit, it includes a room diffuser which is very simple to use.  The essential oils are broken down into microscopic particles that are carried by the “cool steam” water vapor and suspended in the air up to several hours.
