After being asked a few questions and doing some research, starting a few groups and pages on either social media sites or open forums I have come to the conclusion that I need to let people know why I have decided to use Young Living Essential Oils. I have a few personal reasons why I prefer oils and natural remedies, but I also have logical reasons why I have decided to use specifically Young Living oils instead of any other brand. On the personal level, I have chosen to go a natural route with everything that I can because it’s just plain flat out better for our bodies than to introduce chemicals or synthetic substances. All you have to do to see this is read warning labels on the substances you use from your cleaners to your medications. I have sensitive skin. I have a hard time using anything that dries out your skin because lotions don’t even always work to re-hydrate my skin. I also have problems with my breathing. I also have reactions to certain products like All laundry detergent (I break out in hives). When I use a normal household cleaner, I should really use a mask because of how it affects my breathing and my lungs due to having Bronchitis 12 times in 12 years. When I use essential oils to clean and disinfect I have no adverse breathing reaction to the solution. I have also done my research on what medications, even over the counter (OTC) medications can do to you. In fact I recently read an article on how some medications can actually make your brain lose cognitive function due to how they work (found here)
So, why specifically Young Living? What a great question and I’m glad you asked (well, were thinking it at least). Young Living is the only company that has a “Seed to Seal” promise. They are in control of everything that happens from the cultivating of the ground, to the planting of the seeds, to harvesting and distilling the products. The company does not use chemicals pesticides on the plants and any soil the seeds go into has not had chemicals used on it previously. It’s an all natural process. Young Living also tests every batch for quality and never dilutes or cuts the oils with other substances (http://www.modernalternativehealth.com/2012/10/24/essential-oils-finding-answers-part-2/#.Ufk6TtK1GJp).
All in all, for me the choice is simple. I want the best quality oils so I can maintain and improve my health and life with out polluting my body with synthetic copies of nature or chemicals.
