What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds distilled from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease.

Dating back to 4500 B.C., essential oils have been used in everyday life for centuries, from perfumes and aromas to medicinal purposes. The oils contain oxygenating molecules that transport nutrients to the cells of the body. Without oxygen, nutrients in the bloodstream can't be used by the cells, leaving us nutritionally depleted.

Young Living's therapeutic-grade essential oils deliver positive benefits to the body through smell, direct absorption into the skin, and by normal digestive processes. cleansing, calming, stimulating, soothing, Young Living's essential oils bring balance to all systems of the body.
