"Essential oils have been called 'the life blood of a plant.' They circulate through plant tissues and pass through cell walls, carrying nutrition into cells and carrying waste products out. When essential oils are applied to people, they do the same thing, carrying oxygen into cells and carrying waste products out. In fact, essential oils are one of nature's best body cleansers. They can cleanse our cellular receptor sites of pharmaceutical drugs, petrochemicals, and other disruptors of intercellular communication. They can also chelate heavy metals and other toxins, helping to remove and flush them through the liver, colon, sweat, lungs, and kidneys. They can also increase our ability to absorb vitamins and other nutrients." p:59 'The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple' by David Stewart.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE THERAPEUTIC-GRADE?
There is a significant difference between essential oils that simply smell good & those that are therapeutic-grade. Independent laboratory tests prove that Young Living essential oils meet & often exceed industry requirements to obtain the rank of therapeutic-grade. Young Living Essential Oils are organically grown & gently steam distilled based on ancient techniques using low pressure, low temperature, long time, retaining the full, highly complex spectrum of therapeutic constituents. These methods are rarely practiced today. While there is an abundance of essential oils available on the market, most are produced using high temperature, high pressure, short time resulting in a product which perhaps smells similar, but is usually depleted of any true therapeutic benefit.
HOW DO I USE THE OILS?
Therapeutic grade essential oils may be used a number of ways which include;
Therapeutic-grade essential oils can help rid the air of unpleasant odours & unwanted bacteria & even mould with the use of a special diffuser.
Inhalation of therapeutic-grade essential oils is wonderful for energy, mood, relaxation & many other benefits.
Add therapeutic-grade essential oils to your dishwater, washing machine or spray bottle for cleaning & sanitising your home & personal effects. COOKING Pure essential oils like basil, rosemary, oregano, cinnamon, mint and many others can be used in place of dried herbs and spices in everyday cooking (added after the heating process)
Many therapeutic-grade oils are especially effective when applied topically to the skin in the area of concern. Dilution with a high quality carrier oil may be recommended depending on skin sensitivity and the particular oil used. A comprehensive User Guide is available.
There is also available a range of therapeutic-grade essential oils in soft-gel capsule form which are approved for internal use - this is only possible because of the therapeutic-grade purity of these oils & should not be attempted with inferior grade oils.
