What are these essential oils you keep hearing about? Is there truth to the hype? You bet. As long as you source your oils from the right place…but we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
What’s an essential oil? It is the volatile substance of a plant. It’s the pure essence or life blood of the plant. It’s what you smell. Essentials oils are typically steam-distilled. Their created function is to support the life systems of the plant and they support our body systems the same way.
Essential oils are lipid and can be absorbed through the skin. They are able to easily penetrate cells in the human body including the blood-brain barrier, because of their small atomic mass.
By going “back” to essential oils, we’re returning to a pure, undiluted, chemical-free body system support that God intended. Essential oils cannot be mimicked precisely, each oil in each batch is slightly unique making them the perfect support tool.
Essential oils support body systems and processes. They also support positive, healthy feelings. Products made with essential oils can be used for personal hygiene and home cleaning, which offers a healthier solution to brands that contain harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Do you want to give essential oils a try? Everything in life comes down to quality. Take two carrots for example: One carrot is grown on an organic farm while another is sourced from a large field with depleted soils where toxic pesticides are used. Even though the carrots are both orange with green tops, their benefit to the body is drastically different.
The processes used to grow, harvest and distill plants and trees for the purpose of extracting essential oils is critical to the end product. Like the carrot example, even 100% pure essential oil from a non-controlled farm will not have the quality of 100% pure oil from a farm dedicated to quality from the original seed all the way to the final product.
In some regions, regulations are not strict, so it’s very important to know the source of your oils. Many essential oil users who began with lesser quality oils noticed a huge difference when they switched to the good stuff. So where does the “good stuff” come from? We’re glad you asked.

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.
