Tell Me More About Oils
Young Living is not a third party broker of oils, but is a company which embraces each and every step of the essential oil process – regardless of financial viability – in order to provide the highest quality oils possible. They have been around for over 20 years – this isn’t a fad or something new for them – and they have an exclusive Seed to Seal process which is a promise of purity in five careful steps.
- Seed: The best essential oils come from specific plant species that have been specifically studied for their therapeutic value and carefully selected.
- Soil: The second step involves an understanding of farming: soil preparation, balance of sun and water, responsible weed and pest control and wild craft harvesting.
- Distillation: Low pressure steam distillation ensures that the beneficial plant compounds in each batch remain uncompromised.
- Testing – Young Living never accepts diluted, cut or adulterated essential oils and all oils are tested in internal labs as well as in third-party facilities to ensure they meet demanding specification and exceed international standards.
- Seal – Young Living completes the seed to seal process by carefully sealing and inspecting each bottle.
Did you know that as a Young Living member you can visit the farms and help harvest and distill the essential oils you use and love?!? Isn’t that amazing?
Ningxia Red has become part of our daily routine. After trying the two sample packets in our starter kit, my husband and I decided to add this red deliciousness to our day. We have found it helps to keep our energy levels up and maintain healthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels. I like to drink a two ounce shot in the morning along with a drop of grapefruit oil. Sometimes I will have another shot in the afternoon or evening to help alleviate unhealthy snack cravings. Because my husband has long days as a high school athletic coach, he prefers the individual packets so he can drink it on the go throughout the day as needed. Ningxia Red is definitely a favorite product of ours and is now on our Essential Rewards order every month!
