Why Essential Oils?

Why Some People Are Choosing Holistic Aestheticians

Since the beginning of time plants have been intimately connected to the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of humans. Many of the ancient writings, including the Bible, mention the use of aromatic oils for spiritual ritual, skin adornment, and medicinal benefits.

These aromatic oils, also known as, essential oils, are extracted from flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds through steam distillation. They are truly the life blood of all plants and perfectly designed to support our bodies.

It's important to know that essential oils are highly concentrated liquids and far more potent than dried herbs. Further, essential oils are fast-acting and here is why - essential oils bypass digestion! Essential oils can be applied to your skin and reach the blood stream within two minutes, reaching every cell in twenty minutes.

Essential oils penetrate into your skin very quickly because of their small molecular size and because they're fat soluble, meaning they're transdermal. Essentially, essential oils have the ability to boost your emotions, detoxify and protect your cells, improve cellular communication, stimulate tissue and nerve regeneration, and raise your energetic vibration, which just makes us feel more alive, empowered, and evolved.

Getting started with essential oils, although there's a lot to learn, is easy and fun to do. In addition to topical application, you can inhale and/or diffuse essential oils, or add essential oils to your water and dietary recipes. For internal use, see the Young Living "Vitality" line, which are included in the YL Premium Starter Bundle.
