Why use essential oils?

No matter what is happening in your life, essential oils have the power to evoke positive change.


    They fortify the body in the same way they fortify the plant, helping to keep us healthy during winter and when we are travelling and around lots of people. Certain essential oils are also very stimulating to the physical body, so use them during any physical activity, to maintain peak energy levels. Click here to read more.

    Their fragrance uplifts and transforms our moods and can be either calming or invigorating depending on the particular plant oil chosen. Click here to read more

    Many Essential oils support concentration and mental clarity, so are the ideal tool for an office or study environment.Click here to read more.

    They activate the limbic region of the brain, which is our centre of spiritual insight and higher communication. When this part of our brain is activated, we can more easily see auras, white light, Angels and Spirit Guides. Click here to read more.

    Essential oils can be diffused to kill airborne bacteria, fungus and mold and can be used in natural personal care and cleaning products to create a healthy home environment. Click here to read more.

    Certain essential oils through their aroma have the power of "attraction" and can assist with manifesting abundance in all forms. Click here to read more.

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are nature’s magic in a bottle. Often described as the “life blood of the plant”, they have evolved over millions of years to protect and support the plant, so that it lives a long and healthy life. They do this by:

  • Strengthening the plant’s natural defense mechanisms, so that it is better protected from bacteria, fungi and viruses.
  • In some plants, the essential oil smells so beautiful that it is used to attract insects, who then play their role in pollination.
  • Helping to carry oxygen and nutrients around the plant, to ensure ultimate health for the plant.
  • In other plants like Eucalyptus, the essential oil is so concentrated that it deters animals from eating it.

How to use essential oils

Essential oils are incredibly versatile. Not only can they be used to amplify our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and financial well-being, they can also be used in many different ways in our life.

Always use top quality essential oils, as the synthetic constituents and adulterants in cheaper brands of essential oil are harmful to the body.

The importance of quality

Yes, essential oils are nature’s magic in a bottle…but only when produced correctly.
And this is as “rare as hen’s teeth” in today’s world.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could capture the living essence of a plant into a bottle? This is what naturopath Gary Young, N.D., the founder of Young Living Essential Oils, has been able to achieve. This is why Young Living oils often “feel” different to other brands, and why we often refer to them as Vibrational Essential Oils.

They have retained their life force because of the way that they have been produced. Gary sources many of his oils from his 16 organic herb farms and partner farms worldwide, and he has studied with masters around the world to learn the fine art of distillation and analysis of essential oils.

His quality control is un-matched, no chemicals are used anywhere on the farms or in the production process, and he uses low temperature, low pressure steam distillation to ensure that the complete, complex “fingerprint” of the oil is retained.

It’s no wonder that the Young Living oils are the # 1 choice for parents, animal lovers, therapists and scientists around the world.

Important Safety Tips when
using essential oils

1. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines
2. If you get essential oils into your eyes or onto sensitive skin
  • If you get essential oil in your eyes or onto sensitive skin and it starts to burn, liberally apply vegetable oil like olive or coconut oil over the top. Essential oils don’t mix with water, so washing with water only drives them in deeper, and makes them burn more – much like trying to drink water when you’ve had too much chilli!

Tip: Young Living have a great organic vegetable oil blend called V6 – I keep this in my fridge so it’s always easy to find in the case of an emergency!

3. Be attentive to where you place photosensitive oils
  • These are oils that make your skin more sensitive to UV light, and it applies to all citrus oils, such as Orange, Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Tangerine and Bergamot, and also to blends containing citrus oils. It also applies to a couple of additional oils, like Angelica and Ginger.
  • These oils need to be applied to skin that won’t be exposed to direct sunlight or UV light for at least 24 hours (eg. on parts of the body that will be covered with clothing. Otherwise you can end up with a dark mark on your skin that looks like a birth mark….and it has to grow out (which can take months)!!! It can even damage your skin permanently….so be careful!

Tip: The Young Living catalogue will show you which oils are photosensitive
