I want to share this video as to why you will want to choose Young Living Oils over other brands. No other company has a Seed to Seal Guarantee like Young Living. This is a short video about their Seed to Seal Guarantee.
Knowing what you are purchasing in an oils is EXTREMELY important. Did you know if you purchase an oil and it says 100% pure lavender (using lavender just as the example) that the bottle only needs to contain about 5 drops of the pure lavender oil and the rest can be synthetics and fillers? Those synthetics and fillers can be toxic, therefore you NEED to know where your oils are coming from. Young Living Never uses any fillers or synthetics in any of their oils. They have no hidden secrets, you can actually work on their farms and in their distilleries or just go watch the process. It is AMAZING!!
So when comparing Young Living oils to another brand from somewhere like whole foods, (for less money) know that you are not TRULY comparing apples to apples. I will use Frankincense oil for example, a bottle of Frankincense may only be $8-10 somewhere else and Young Living Frankincense is $45 for a 5 ml bottle, so it appears to be more expensive, but when you actually do the math, it is not. So with the less expensive oil, you only are getting around 5 drops of the actual Frankincense oil and the rest is a cheaper carrier oil. Where as, with Young Living, you are getting 80-90 drops of true Frankincense. It is not any more expensive than the other brand, yet it isn’t toxic to your system and you know that you are getting the quality you desire.
Another thing to consider is from which part of the plant an oil is being extracted. So you can get way more clove oil from the leaves, steam and roots than you can from the bud of the plants, but the bud of the clove plant is where all of the healing, therapeutic properties are contained. So to the average person purchasing clove oil we would not be able to tell the difference or know from which part of the plant the oil has been obtained. Young Living will only harvest and extract oils during the proper season, from parts of the plants with the most therapeutic properties, and at the optimal age of maturity to guarantee the highest quality of oils in the industry.
