What Are Essential Oils and What Is All The Fuss About?
Welcome to the first of a 28-post series I’ll be sharing about essential oils, why I use them every day, and why I’ve chosen Young Living Essential Oils as my source for the best EO products.
I bet the first question you have right now is, “What exactly are essential oils?” In a nutshell, pure and authentic essential oils are unique, concentrated aromatic liquids.
They are extracted through very careful and controlled steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing. Because they are so concentrated, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they are derived!
They are distilled from flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and the seeds of plants, and are rich in compounds beneficial to supporting your health and vitality.
The distillation process concentrates these beneficial properties. The purity and the value of the oil comes from this process.
So what exactly is meant by “therapeutic-grade”? Please click HERE to see a short excerpt explaining what it takes to create this type of oil.
Next time you hear from me, I will be telling you about the history of essential oils. But in the meantime, if you want to explore more about oils, please visit my website.
