What are Essential Oils & Why You Need Them
Simply put ...they are the Power of Nature in a bottle!

Essential oils are naturally occurring aromatic compounds found in seeds, bark, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. These oils give plants their fragrance, and protect the plants from insects and other threats. 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. The next time you drive by a field of fresh peppermint or hike through a forest, breathe deeply.  You’re experiencing the power of essential oils. But essential oils are more than nice scents; these powerful plant extracts are an invitation to your wellness journey.
