Frequently Asked Questions about Young Living
I get asked a lot of questions about Young Living and why I joined the company. Today, I thought that I would answer the top five questions that I get asked, so that you do not have to go searching the internet for the answers. Sound good? Great! Let’s get started! 🙂
But first, I would like to share, with you, Young Living’s Mission Statement. It is composed of three parts: Our Vision, Our Mission, and Our Purpose. Click here to learn more about our mission statement.
Now that we’ve gotten that out-of-the-way, onward to the top five questions that I get asked about Young Living:
What is an Essential Oil?
Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. Some people like to call essential oils “nature’s living energy” because they contain unique constituents that provide a host of benefits.
Most essential oils are extracted from plant sources, using steam distillation, and they are highly concentrated, making them far more potent than dried botanicals.
Essential oils are volatile, which means that the scent of the oil rises quickly into the air.
They are also versatile, with a wide variety of uses. Some people use essential oils to enliven an environment, support different body systems, or just for their great scents. However you choose to use essential oils, chances are someone else has tried that same use in the past. If you still don’t know where to start, rest assured that each essential oil is labeled with instructions for use.
How are Essential Oils created?
Young Living uses a gentle technique for steam-extracting essential oils and preserving their precious constituents. Young Living’s proprietary low-temperature, low-pressure steam distillation process assures that the beneficial plant compounds, in every batch of oil, remain uncompromised during the extraction process.
How do you use Essential Oils?
There are several ways to use essential oils: Aromatically, Topically, and Internally.
One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is aromatically. Many of us have had a time where a smell triggers a memory—freshly baked bread, pine needles, or spring flowers can easily take you back to positive times in your life. Essential oils are the same! Essential oils are used, aromatically, by placing a couple of drops in the palm of your hand, rubbing your hands together, and cupping your hands over your nose and mouth and inhaling deeply.
Diffusion is another great way to use essential oils aromatically. By creating a fine, aromatic mist, diffusers allow you to create a spa-like atmosphere and enjoy the benefits of essential oils in any environment. Young Living offers a wide variety of diffusers, and when you enroll as a new member, you will receive a diffuser in your Premium Starter Kit.
Essential oils can also be applied to the skin. This is known as topical application. Topical application is a great way to support your skin because essential oils are easy to use and provide quick benefits. If you have never used essential oils, one great area of the body to apply them topically is the soles of the feet.
Some people choose to use essential oils internally by adding them to water or liquid, placing them in a capsule, or taking one of Young Living’s oil-infused products. Peppermint, for example, can help promote healthy bowel function and support overall digestion when taken internally. It is suggested that you obtain the approval of your physician, or a certified Aromatherapist, before using essential oils internally.
Why did you join Young Living? There are plenty essential oil companies out there.
I, personally, chose Young Living for several reasons. The first reason is because of their Seed-to-Seal Promise. Learn more about Young Living’s Seed-to-Seal Promise here.
I joined Young Living because I have been looking for ways to naturally support the systems of the body, mainly my immune, muscular, and nervous systems. I also wanted to live a more chemical-free life because chemicals are all around us, and they can be extremely harmful to our bodies.
