Why Young Living

I thought I would take a moment and share why I decided to use Young Living as my primary and really only brand when it comes to essential oils.

I used to buy other brands but I never would buy blends because I knew that a lot of unscrupulous companies would has a lot of filler oils and not a lot of the essential oil but charge as if it was a lot of the good stuff.


Fast forward to now. I love the Young Living blends just as much as the single oils. The quality can’t be beat! If you are thinking about what brand to use, Young Living is the ONE!

What makes Young living so special?

By having their own farms and employing Seed to Seal standards, Young Living ensures that NO ONE has more potent or more pure oils.


Young Living does this by regularly sampling and measuring the BRIX values of the plants.
(BRIX is a measure of the sugar level in the plants, which is indicative of plant metabolism (when plants photosynthesize, they store the energy from the sun as sugar).

Young Living then harvests the plants at the peak of their metabolic processes, which ensures that they are producing the most and best oil of their lifecycles.


You CAN NOT do this if you don’t have access to the plants on your own farms.

There is no question in my mind which brand to use to help support the wellness on my family and friends.
