Why I Choose Young Living Essential Oils & 10 Reasons Why You Should Too

If you have stumbled upon this post, it might be because you’ve been hearing the buzz about this company around town. Or, you are thinking about getting into essential oils, but don’t know what the best company to trust. For whatever reason brought you here, know that you are at the right place!I probably have so many oils, I could be set for years.-and I have to tell you, I’ve probably tried most companies out there as well. I really wasn’t “educated” on essential oils, so I basically chose oils by price.I found out the hard (and expensive) way that when it comes to “cheap oils” you get what you pay for! Meaning, most cheap oils are mainly diluted as much as possible, thus, making them not work like they should be.Once I started learning more about how oils work and how you need to pay for quality-don’t worry, you don’t need a lot, so they save you money in the long run-I finally got on board.

What I learned was, the vast majority of essential oils on the market today are only suitable for cosmetics and perfumes.  The reason Young Living’s oils are so different is that they produce therapeutic grade oils, meaning they can have real health benefits. The whole reason why you should use them, right?

Because of Young Living’s strict method for producing the oils to obtain the purest, ‘un-messed-with’ plant essences, you can feel safe that you are using the best.  Young Living calls this their Seed to Seal process, where every step from planting to bottling is detailed and controlled.

The vast majority of other essential oils are extracted using high heat, high pressure, and chemical solvents.  Although the final product may still contain the aroma of the plant, these harsh processing methods destroy the therapeutic qualities of the oils.  Using lesser-quality oils for therapeutic purposes is never recommended and can be extremely toxic.

Quite simply…they work.

In so many different situations, Young Living essential oils have worked for my family and for many others I know.  We are less sick, our cleaning products are not toxic, and my skin has never felt better.


  1. Young Living is is the only essential oil company that owns their own farms or partners with farms that are willing to live up to their standards for growing, harvesting and distilling.
  2. Essential oils sold in most health food stores are aroma-grade or fragrance-grade oils and while they do smell good, they don’t offer the same therapeutic and medicinal benefits. These oils may contain additives, fillers, and synthetics to increase volume or fragrance. Pure essential oils contain all desired therapeutic compounds – nothing more, nothing less.
  3. Most essential oils have expiration dates, Young Living oils do not. 100% pure essential oils  will last indefinitely if properly stored away from heat and sunlight.
  4. Young Living has been producing the finest quality oils for over 20 years and they have the greatest selection of singles & blends of any essential oil company.
  5. Young Living uses the finest production practices in the industry. They distill oils once at low temperatures and pressures, using chemical-free water and medical-grade stainless steel distillers.
  6. Young Living is the only essential oil company in the world with a Seed to Seal process since they control every single aspect of production.
  7. Anyone can visit the Young Living farms around the globe and participate in the harvest and distillation process.
  8. Young Living oils meet all industry AFNOR and ISO standards and are subjected to isotopic ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) analysis which determines whether a particular essential oil is naturally sourced or synthetic (created in a lab).
  9. There are no minimum sales or purchase requirements for Young Living members. Ever. The only thing you have to do to keep your membership active is to place $50 in orders per year (but, you can also get them for free by sharing their products!)
  10. I saved the best for last: The Young Living community are a great bunch of people to be around. Once you try their products, you’ll fall in love with them! Then, you will want to share it with everyone you know and get products free, or even make a living sharing what you love!
