Here’s the truth... you can get oils almost anywhere- the grocery store, health food store, Amazon. So how do you decide where to get your oils? It is actually very important.
In the U.S, there are very little regulations as far as the purity of essential oils is concerned. In fact, an essential oil can be labeled as “pure” as long as it contains only 5% oil. The rest of the bottle can be filled with fillers, such as water and chemical additives. Which means that the oil that you are using is actually doing more harm than good.
This is why I love Young Living essential oils. I have to admit, before I tried Young Living’s oils, I was using cheap oils from the health food store and wasn’t getting the effects that I hoped for. Luckily, I didn’t give up on oils- I did my research and found that Young Living has their own farms, they use steam distillation (no chemicals involved) and they test their oils for purity and they’re also tested by a third party to make sure they are pure and contain all of the constituents that the oils should, so that I can receive ALL of the benefits for that oil. But the biggest testimony of their purity to me was the way that they worked. It blew me away!
So make sure you do your research. Choose an essential oil company that has rigorous standards.
