essential oils

Since getting married and having a baby, I have wanted to live a more healthy life and am much more aware of what we are putting in our bodies and on our skin. My journey with essential oils started when I was looking for natural help with health problems. I have always believed in natural remedies, but never really 'got into them' but my experience with oils has changed my life. I use my diffuser every day and that helps with my mood and the blends I mix have helped with other problems. I seem to be living a more oil based life and aim to soon have a synthetic free home!

We actually use essential oils a lot in every day life. They are used to flavour foods and can be found in things like toothpaste and mouthwash to give it that minty kick. Oils are also in perfumes and skin care products. They are many places that you wouldn’t guess!
But not all oils are created equally. The oils found in food and cosmetics are typically something that is synthetic, which your body processes it as a toxin and therefore it becomes harder to break down or can be stored in fat cells. These types of synthetic oils work against your body.

Young Living Essential Oils are therapeutic grade which gives them the ability to work with your body. Within 20 minutes of applying oils they can be found in every cell. These pure oils are distilled from the ‘life blood’ of plants and contain the plant’s own immunity, hormones, and scents.

When you pick a rose and break off the stem, you’ll always notice there is a bit of watery substance. This is the source that the pure essential oils come from. This God given source was intelligently created to benefit our whole body.

It is a highly temperamental process to distill oils from plants and it can not be rushed. Young Living is a part of the entire process from the ‘Seed to Seal’. They make sure that the soil the crops are planted in have never been touched with pesticides or herbicides so that toxins are never present in the plants or in the oils.

Young Living oversees each step ensuring that the correct temperature is used for the correct amount of time so that every constituent is intact. They go above and beyond to guarantee that every drop of oil is what we call ‘beyond organic.’


Oils are great to rub onto the skin. You can dilute them with a carrier oil. There are a few carrier oils, like coconut oil, sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil. Or you can use Young Living’s V-6 oil. You can massage into the location that you’re needing it, or the soles of your feet. When applying to children or babies, always dilute with a carrier oil.


Take a drop of lavender oil in your hands and smell it. Those tiny molecules are entering your nose and being absorbed by your blood stream. This method of inhaling is a great way to use oils quickly and easily. You can also place a few drops of oils into a diffuser with water and the cool mist will spread them into the air so you breath them in as you move around your home or office.


By ingesting oils, you are getting the most benefit of every drop! You can place drops under the tongue, swab the oil on the inside of your cheek, or place the drops into a vegetable capsule to swallow. Under the tongue is the go-to method for adults because of how quickly the oils can be absorbed into your body through your mouth. Be sure to check that the specific oil is for internal use first! Oils are also great when added to a glass of water!

Young Living is the world leader in essential oils and have been harvesting, distilling and being a pioneer in essential oil research for over 20 years.

Young Living was started by D.Gary Young as a small family business.

They have developed a seed to seal promise for their oils, ensuring the purity from the planting of the seed to the sealing of the bottle. They also submit their oils to AIRAISE, a third party company to test each batch for purity.
Their essential oils do not have any additives and can be taken internally.

They own their own farms and distilleries all across the globe which gives them control over not only the outcome of the oils but also the soil they have been planted in, the way they are distilled, and the team behind the crops.

We call the oils 'beyond organic' because they ensure that no pesticides have ever been used on the crops or on the soil.

Any time you want to visit Young Living's farms, you are welcome. They have an open door policy and you are able to participate in the harvesting and distilling process of the oils throughout each season.

These oils are therapeutic grade and do not have an expiry date!
