The health of your physical body is a reflection of what’s happening physiological inside your body and your mental and emotional states. A lifestyle of poor diet, lack of exercise, and environmental toxins contribute to your body’s toxic load and reduced energy levels. Therapeutic-grade essential oils can help you restore balance in your body as well as improve your emotional well being.
Essential oils come from plants. They are considered the “blood” of the plant and act as the plant’s immune system. They protect the plant from mold, fungi, viruses, bacteria and anything else that appears to be a threat. Essential oils work naturally without producing toxicity as a side effect. In fact, they help your body detoxify.
Essential oils protect you in the same way, by providing these natural healing components to you:
- analgesic (pain reliever)
Essential oils have a tiny molecular structure that allows you to absorb them quickly, usually with 15 minutes. Because of their healing qualities and their absorptive capacity, they are highly effective in protecting you from the effects of your diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors and supporting all of your body systems.
The bad news is unless you are using essential oils that are pure and have their therapeutic-grade qualities intact, you probably will not receive the healing benefits of the essential oil(s) you are using.
Not all essential oils are the same! About 90% of the essential oils on the market today have been grown in poor soil conditions; harvested at the wrong time; and distilled using high heat, pressure and chemical solvents. Some are chemically altered by adding synthetic chemicals to increase their scent. This produces a low-quality end product that does not preserve its therapeutic qualities; therefore, you will not receive the health benefits you are looking for.
Therapeutic-grade essential oils are grown, harvested and distilled differently.
At Essential Wellness, we exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils (YLEO’s) because of the high standards they uphold in their “Seed to Seal” process. In fact, they are above the bar in setting the standard for pure, therapeutic-grade quality essential oils. Young Living never accepts diluted, cut, or adulterated oils. They use extensive internal laboratory testing and independent third-party audits which show how they routinely exceed their own industry-leading quality standards and those set by international standards. The bottom line is they contain optimal levels of natural bioactive compounds – the therapeutic-grade qualities you are looking for.
Some Common Questions We Are Asked
Why do essential oils absorb so quickly?
The molecules of essential oils are much smaller than those of common fatty oils (like olive and peanut oil). Substances with smaller molecules are more easily absorbed into your body because small molecules permeate and absorb better than large molecules.
How do the essential oils affect all the parts of my body?
Essential oils instantly penetrate your skin and reach all areas of your body quickly, including your organs, within minutes. Their tiny molecules enable them to quickly cross through your tissues, cell walls, and the blood-brain barrier. This is how they reach your limbic brain and positively affect your thoughts, emotions and mood.
Clinical studies show that your body’s frequency can be affected both positively and negatively by the food you eat, by prayer, your sleep habits, your mood or emotional state, your thoughts/affirmations, any medication you take, by your exercise habits, and, yes, by essential oils.
When you apply, inhale or ingest an essential oil your body yields a higher frequency. Science has proven a parallel between high frequency levels and increased health. Lower frequency levels are associated with decreased health (such as cold, allergies, insomnia, etc.). By adding high frequency essential oils into your lifestyle, you can reduce your stress and amplify your well-being.
How can essential oils balance my emotions?
Each essential oil’s complex, pleasant, and unique scent activates your limbic system (your brain’s memory and emotional center); thereby, having the ability to uplift your spirits, empower your release of negative thought/emotional patterns, and balance your mood and state of mind. They do this through your body’s endocrine (hormones) and nervous systems.
Are the Young Living oils safe for my child?
The oils are safe for your child, even your baby. Because your baby/child’s skin is more sensitive, always dilute the essential oil you are using (1 drop) in a base of carrier oil (such as olive oil or almond oil), then apply it to the bottoms of their feet. (See resources mentioned in next question.)
Can I use Young Living oils during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
Despite being 100% natural and safe to use, we recommend that you consult your healthcare professional prior to using any supplemental products during pregnancy or while nursing. Essential oils that are contraindicated during pregnancy are: wild tansy, clary sage, sage, fennel, wintergreen, or hyssop.
That said, two great resources that will guide you in making decisions about what to eat, what to feed your baby, and how to use essential oils safely during pregnancy and after birth are:
- Gentle Babies: Essential Oils and Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Childbirth and Infant Care by Debra Raybern
- Beautiful Babies: Nutrition for Fertility, Pregnancy, Breast-Feeding, and Baby’s First Foods by Kristen Michaelis.
