I have recently started researching different oils and finding interesting information and some missing pieces. Due to the missing part I decided to share my own story of using the oils and some very important parts that gone missing on the internet.
I started playing in the oils and ordering them online. I am one for saving money. I didn't know what I was doing I just ordered online and used them trial and error. One of my friends gave me Inner Child which got me through my pregnancy it was my favorite. Another friend always knew I love oils and invited me to an oil class, she said I should go since I used oils and I was there.
This was the first time I learned more about the oils and made a connection of how important oils and oil quality was. It was a class on Young Living, the oils finally had a voice and I could tell a complete difference upon using them. I jumped into researching the oils and finding out how they could benefit my family. I was so impressed, I loved hearing the testimonies of everyone that I shared them with. At that time you could find endless information on the internet of how to use them. Since then the FDA has asked Young Living distributors to not share any information that has to do with healing. You can imagine many people took down their posts to be compliant and will not share with you their testimonies to follow the rules. They love their Young Living oils and are not willing to lose them, however other companies write all about the oils and as an outsider, I know many people wonder why. I believe there are definite reasons Young Living is targeted for compliance. I suggest you try them to find out why.
I have tried many oils as I have said before starting my journey. I believe any oil is better than no oil. I believe that oils having healing benefits and are a gift from God. They are not all the same by any means. We all know the differences when you buy brand name. The funny thing is I hear people say things like, "Young Living those are the expensive oils." The Young Living oils potency and quality is so great that I find one drop goes along way. The other oils seems to be so diluted or overdistiled that it takes so much more. I don't think you can compare the value in oz but in the power of a drop.
After learning and trying I have come to find out my use with the products are very different you see.
100% Pure does not mean the same thing. Several companies can put that on the bottle and the regulation does not stand here are some of the differences.
-Farms and regulations are the farms owned and operated by the company are inspected to maintain an organic environment.
-Distilling there are many ways to distill and some companies do several distillations or harsher ones. Everytime they distill it smells sweeter. Young Living is the only company who guarantees first distillation. Everytime they distill they are making the oil weaker.
-Adulterated oils many companies will add or infuse other oils into their products to make them go further. Everything in Young Living products are fully listed.
Fragrance used oils, oils have become so popular you see oils used as a selling point for example the plug ins that claim they are are using essential oils. When they are labeled fragrance it can mean that can contain many items that are toxic and may induce health issues.
Testing is important. I don't trust a website that says to save me money they do not test? The only thing I can see is the bottle. One has no way of knowing what quality of product they are getting. Seed to Seal, it's a slogan but what it breaks down to is the mission behind that. They guarantee that they monitor their farms, distill properly and test in and out of the company. They even use the extra to put back on the crops. I love that you can actually go to the farms and be part of the the process. Witness the goodness of how you are getting oils. Young Living also greatly cares about the plants and farms and works hard to maintain the best quality that's why at times you have to wait on a oil until they can plant another farm. They do not substitute quality.
Sweetness some companies add to their oils to make them smell more like candy this alters the benefits that one receives from the oils and is not recommended.
Expiration dates you won't find them on Young Living bottles the oils if not adulterated will not expire.
When looking at the bottles and information on other oils, I find comments like do not use on your skin. That is worrisome to me.
Many of the reviews out there are to support sales and they will tell you this. I encourage you to do your own research.
Essential oils are very powerful you want to test and dilute. The oils should not cause an allergic reaction but they are very supportive of wellness and some may experience a detox with the oils.
It's very important to feel comfortable and know what you are putting in your body. There is lot's of research and books that can support you and your family with using the oils.
Internal use I personally use my oils internally and would not do that with other oils, as I only trust the purity of Young Living. This is something that you must feel comfortable with and research. NOT all oils are for internal use. They are very powerful and are best done with a carrier oil or in ningxia red.

After trying many oils and learning the difference I choose Young Living. The products are amazing, I love the quality and know they back their products with I'm getting the best! I have also learned how to get on Essential Rewards and save I have received over $500 dollars in free products in half a year. After you get the premium starter kit which is the best possible value $312. for just $160 and currently on sale for $150 till August 14th you get 24% off future orders and additionally credits for free products when ordering on ER. Now before I thought I was saving money by ordering on Amazon. I love amazon but with oils you will never get the best value or oils. It's worth the time to get started with a company that has amazing quality and experience the best results! I love my Young Living oils.
I know I started out investing a lot of money buying various oils and products and my goal is that after reading this you won't have to do all the trial and error I did. I bought several diffusers off of amazon that broke and I was not able to recoop. I love my Young Living diffusers! They are are of the best quality and when one broke they sent me a new one with their guarantee policy.
I would be happy to share you the oils so that you can experience the difference yourself.
