Does Essential Oil Brand Really Matter?

Standard

Does Essential Oil brand really matter? Since oils are from plants, the care begins with the first seed in the ground… and as we have studied essential oils, we have discovered that only one company really does this process properly. Young Living has EARNED our loyalty because of their SEED TO SEAL process, which no other oil company in the world does! Friends, meet Young Living Essential Oils!
SEED:
a. They hand select their heirloom seeds and plant them on rested fields (so the soil isn’t stripped of all its nutrients)
b. They grow them in as much of their natural environment as possible and with companion plants so they can produce the highest quality plants possible.
CULTIVATION:
a. They cultivate them “organically” and use no sprays, chemicals, fertilizers, etc. on the plants.
b. They spray with their own oils only.
HARVEST:
a. The plants are harvested at the right time of year and even the right time of day. Some plants do better if harvested in the cool morning hours and so Young Living will stretch out their harvest over several weeks instead of just doing it in a few days because they care so much about the quality of each plant.
DISTILLATION:
a. When you cut flowers, if you don’t immediately put them in water, they dry out, correct?
b. If you harvest plants and ship them hours or days away to be distilled into essential oils, they will dry out and in the process lose much of their viability and life.
c.Young Living built their own distilleries right on their farms so there is no drying out time.
d. They distill each plant at the proper temperature and pressure.
e. What results is the highest quality oil from the highest quality plants.
TESTING:
a. After the oil is distilled, Young Living tests each and every batch.
b. It must meet certain chemical constituents in order for them to keep it and sell it as “therapeutic grade” oil.
c. Their standards are significantly higher than the world standards for essential oils.
d. They also 3rd party test (from an outside source).
e. If it doesn’t have certain percentages of each chemical constituent, they don’t keep it and they sell it off to other companies to use to fragrance their “lavender shampoos and lotions” etc.
f. YL ends up keeping about the top 30% of their oils.
g. This shows their character, integrity, and commitment to having the highest quality oils in the entire world.
