Essential Oil Basics

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, root, bushes, resins, and seeds. They contain unique consituents that provide a host of benefits for the body and mind. Young Living's essential oils are extracted through steam distillation or cold pressing and are highly concentrated. Essential oils are volatile, which means that the scent of the oil rises quickly into the air. They are also versatile, with a wide variey of uses, including enlivening their environments, supporting different body systems, flavoring foods and drinks, or simply enjoying the great scents. If you are unsure where to start, check the label of your Young Living essential oils, where you will find instructions for use.
