Welcome to the world of discovering the complexity and beauty of these amazing gifts from nature!
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their health, cosmetic, and emotionally uplifting properties. Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found in trees, flowers, bushes, branches, stems, fruits, needles, roots & seeds. They are referred to as the “life-force of a plant” or the “immune system” of the plant.
Essential oils are composed of hundreds of chemical constituents and are extracted through steam distillation. When plants are dried 95-97% of the essential oil of the plant is lost. So, by using essential oils we are getting a complete chemical profile in every drop. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible. Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation, but also through cold pressing and resin tapping, the purest essential oils are far more powerful and effective than the herbs or plants from which they come, delivering quick and effective results. Just to give you an idea, 5,000 lbs. of rose petals=1lb. rose essential oil and 1 drop Peppermint=26 cups peppermint tea.
The power of essential oils lies in their chemical compounds and their synergy (the benefit that results when two or more agents work together to achieve something either one couldn’t have achieved on its own). Because essential oils are composites of hundreds of different chemicals, they can exert many different effects on the body. Essential oils are “lipid soluble” which means they have the unique ability to penetrate cell membranes & diffuse throughout the blood and tissues. Because the molecules of essential oils are so small, this enhances their ability to penetrate into cells is enhanced.
Essential oils are multi-faceted and as beautiful and complex as their chemical profile. It is our hope that you too can discover the wonderful world of essential oils and how using this life force can change your life.

Gary Young founded the company in the 90’s. At the time, Gary had already discovered the incredible power of essential oils, but because the quality of available oils varied so greatly, he’d been unable to fully harness their potential. Plus, he found that the chemically altered or adulterated oils on the market were often ineffective and sometimes even harmful.
