Essential Oils 101

  1. 1. E O 101 Learn the basics of essential oils. by Tammy Neeb Young Living Independent Distributor #13585195
  2. 2. What are essential oils? ● Essential Oils are liquidsthat come from plants. The oils are distilled from the flower, leaves, stems, roots, bark, and resins of plants or they are cold-pressed from the rinds of citrus fruits. ● Think of them as the “immune system”of the plant: everything the plant needed to grow, thrive, and survive is what is extracted. ● They are powerful agents which support every system in your body. ● Essential oils are directly extracted from plants without any chemical manipulation and share very similar structure to human DNA. Because of this our bodies easily recognize the oils and readily absorb them. Your body uses what it needs from the essential oil to supportyou and your health.
  3. 3. How are essential oils beneficial? ● Therapeutic Essential oils are taken by the bloodstream and carried to every cellwithin the entire body, in a matter of minutes. ● Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can easily and quickly penetrateour skin tissue. They are different from fatty oils like coconut and olive oil, which have very large molecules. ● Essential oils detoxifycells and blood in the body. ● They are powerful antioxidantsthat create an unfriendly environment for damaged free radicals.
  4. 4. Are all oils created equal? Not even close! The quality of an essential oil is directly related to the quality of the plant it is extracted from - including how the plant was cared for and harvested. The distillation process is also key. There are four grades of essential oils available: 1. Synthetic = created in a lab 2. Extended or Altered Oils = fragrance grade, for aromatic use only 3. Organic Oils /Certified Oils = contain few, if any, therapeutic compounds 4. Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils = pure, medicinal, most often steam distilled or cold pressed and contains all of the plant’s therapeutic properties
  5. 5. Watch this short video to learn why Young Living is the industry leader in therapeutic grade essential oils: (*If video does not work look for the link uploaded with this SlideShare or search YouTube for “Young Living Seed to Seal.”)
  6. 6. Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils • Most oils found at health food stores and retail stores, including “therapeutic” brands found on Amazon, have been adulterated with synthetic ingredients like propylene glycol (found in anti-freeze) and other fillers. Do not ingest these! • Young Living was started over 25 years ago and is the only company in the world that is not an oil broker. YL owns our own farms and distilleries and uses organic farming practices. YL oils are so pure you can literally ingest them. Every batch is tested to be sure that it meets the highest standards. • Young Living is trusted in hospitals and research centers around the globe. They are also the first company to pioneer combining pure essential oils with top quality supplements. This is powerful because when you take a supplement with an oil, it helps to increase the absorption rate by over 50%.
  7. 7. Three Ways to Use Essential Oils 1. Topically 2. Aromatically / Diffusing 3. Internally
  8. 8. Topically Apply a couple drops directly on area of concern. You can dilute with a carrier like olive oil or coconut oil. You can also put on the bottoms of feet where your largest pores and all nerve endings are.
  9. 9. Aromatically/Diffusing Put a couple drops in hands, cup hands over face, and breathe deeply. When you breathe in the molecules in the oils are so small, they go from the olfactory nerves to the limbic system. This region of the brain only communicates through a sense of smell. This has a profound effect on the body! Diffusing is another great way to get the benefits of essential oils, and helps to get rid of any “travelers” you may have picked up circulating in the air. When diffusing something relaxing like lavender it will have calming and harmonious effects on the body.
  10. 10. Internally Take the oils internally in a capsule, or put a few drops in a glass of water or tea. Taking essential oils internally is a great way to support a healthy immune system and maintain proper ph balance in the body! Just look at the back of the bottle and follow directions.
