What are Essential Oils?

I’ve always been an herbal remedy, all natural, hippie type gal. But about 2 years ago I began learning about Essential Oils and they have taken our health and wellness journey up a notch! I wish I had known about Essential oils when I was raising my little ones. The thing I love about them is that they are so user friendly, just open the bottle and they’re ready to go! You have probably heard people talking about Essential oils and you may be wondering whats all the hype? I’ll briefly describe them so you know where they come from and I’m also going to feature a different oil every few weeks so you too can learn about how they can benefit your health. I personally use Young Living Oils. I believe they are the highest quality oils you can buy, they own their own farms which means the sourcing and purity is meticulous. Just to clarify, I am not talking about oils you buy in the grocery store, health food store, pharmacy, or at Target. Because Essential oils are not regulated, there is no guarantee that there aren’t fillers, rancid oils, etc in those oils, I wouldn’t waste your money on those.

So what are Essential Oils? Essential oils are harvested from farm-grown and wildcrafted plants, herbs, and trees. They are concentrated plant extracts obtained by careful steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping. These pure essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they are extracted. They can be used aromatically, topically, or internally.
