The Misconception


You are probably wondering about what essential oils are, or perhaps you’ve heard of them but never thought about the legitimacy of it or the differences between the various brands of essential oils and fragrances available in the market.

Firstly, essential oils are concentrated liquids containing the essence or the unique aromatic compound of plants that are unique to each species of medicinal plant. Unlike perfumes or fragrance oils, they are 100% natural and have therapeutic benefits that and can be harnessed to help maintain your health and well-being.

However, mass produced lower grade oils from various aromatherapy brands in the market have no therapeutic properties and have no health benefits. Those oils contain additives, artificial fragrances and even chemicals. Only therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living contain these therapeutic properties and are the best possible range of essential oils that are 100% natural and beneficial.

There's a Difference

Essential oils can vary greatly in quality and price. Factors that can affect the quality and price of individual oils include the rarity of the botanicals and whether or not their climatic requirements for healthy growth are met. Likewise, the quality of farms, farming and distillation process translate into the quality of the end product.

Therapeutic grade essential oils are produced under strict regulations that ensure highest quality products. Unlike those oils that are common in the market with dubious sources of raw materials, Young Living carefully monitors the production of oils from beginning to end. For more than two decades, Young Living have diligently overseen every step of this process, both on their own global farms and with carefully vetted partner farms.
