Essential oils are the life blood of the plant. They have so many naturally occurring compounds and constituent that change with the conditions of how the plant grows. If there are drought conditions then the plant makes different amounts of the constituents to keep it alive through that process. If there is flooding then there will be a further change in the constituents. You will never know what constituents are in the plant before you distil the plant.
The parts of the plant that we distil are: Leaves, flowers, bark, wood, roots, needles, fruit, berries, rinds, resin, balsam, gum, grass and seeds.
Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness that can be truly life-changing.
Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come. Any time you hold a bottle of Young Living’s powerful essential oils, you hold nature’s pure essence.
How To Use Essential Oils
The ways we use the power of essential oils are through diffusing, topical application adding to our food and water. (there are 31 oils that Young Living have met the Food and Beverage Code for Australian and New Zealand) Utilising the oils in this method support you and your family to say above the wellness line.
Inspire a positive emotional state
We are consistently and pleasantly pleased with how Young Living essential oils support our emotions. Learning to read your own emotions is so very beneficial to your overall well-being. When we can be honest with ourselves and really see the emotions that are present to us we get to shift what is going on and emotionally rebalance.
If you are feeling distress then grapefruit would be the oil to choose to diffuse, apply topically or add to your food and water. Remembering it is a photosensitive oil and place in a spot that if you are out in the sun it does not see the light of the day.
If you are feeling like you can’t get on with things then you might say you have the feeling of procrastination. Then diffusing, topically applying or adding to your food and water Lemon Myrtle would be a great go to for you that day.
Enhance Spiritual Awareness
Incense and essential oils from plants have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. The pure constituents in these oils stimulate olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. To enhance your spiritual practice, dilute and apply empowering essential oils directly to wrists, feet, and behind the ears or diffuse the oils in a quiet space. Popular essential oils and blends for spiritual focus include:
