"I'll just get essential oils off of Amazon. It's cheaper."
"They have essential oils at the grocery store. I'll pick some up there."
"How is Young Living different?"
I used to think the same way too! With our culture becoming more health conscious, essential oils are everywhere. But just like any other product, you get what you pay for! The FDA does not require testing on essential oils. That means the brands you see at Natural Grocers, Whole Foods, or on Amazon - despite being sold in reputable stores - likely have little actual essential oil in them or worse, are toxic. Young Living is one of the only essential oil companies (if not the only) that has strict purity testing for all of their products, even though the government doesn't require them to do so. If you're striving to detox your home, it's important to be confident you really are doing just that. This is why Young Living was such an easy choice for me. Plus, let's be real - I'm also lazy and love that anything I want just shows up at my door. Below are some more reasons on why Young Living is so unique!
Young Living has over 20 years of experience and is the world leader in essential oil research and distillation.
Young Living essential oils do not expire and are safe for ingestion.
Young Living essential oils are 100 percent organic. Read about their seed to seal process here.
Each batch of oils is thoroughly tested by Young Living for viability. Read about their testing process here.
Young Living owns their own farms all around the world. You can even visit the farms and participate in the harvest/distillation process! Read about them here.
Young Living is the only company to submit their oils to AIRASE for purity testing. Find out more about AIRASE here.
I highly recommend checking out Laura's Natural Life for more information not just on essential oils, but going organic in general. Her website and YouTube channel have been so helpful to me for the past year.
