As a natural health expert, I have a tremendous amount of tools that I could incorporate into my wellness practice or use in my home and on my farm. When you look into my medicine chest you won’t find bottles of Tylenol or Benadryl. What you will find are homeopathic remedies, herbal tinctures and capsules, and some nutritional supplements. But those aren’t what I turn to first… What I bring with me nearly everywhere I go and what I use every day in my natural health clinic… Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils (YLTGEO).

Over 150 Essential Oils and Blends

Since I have so many tools at my disposal, people often ask me why I choose Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils as my first choice in natural health care and natural first aid; it’s hard for me to give a short answer. So today, I’m going to give you my top ten reasons why I turn to Young Living FIRST.

1) Essential Oils are Turbo-Herbal Medicine! The therapeutic effects of YLTGEOs are derived from the healing powers of the plants they are extracted from – basically, the plants’ immune system. However, since they are so pure and so concentrated, a typical dose is just one to three drops. It has been said that one drop of YL Peppermint Oil has the therapeutic benefits of 40 cups of peppermint tea. Now that’s powerful medicine!

2) Young Living Essential Oils are Therapeutic Grade – Since YLEO’s are of the highest purity, not only can they be diffused into the air and inhaled but they can also be applied topically (to the skin) and taken internally. Many essential oils that you can buy at your local health food store or at a body and bath shops are synthetically derived or diluted with other chemicals and cannot be applied to the skin or taken internally. In my opinion, they are air fresheners. Young Living is the brand I use and trust.

3) Physical Benefits – Essential oils have been used for centuries and are often referenced in the bible. They are known for their healing properties. For example, it is well-documented that Frankincense oil has anti-cancer properties. Grapefruit oil has fat-burning properties. And Lavender oil is tremendous for healing burns and other skin issues. Peppermint oil can eliminate gas and bloating. PanAway soothes painful muscles and joints. And the list goes on and on…

4) Emotional Benefits – Since the sense of smell is directly linked to the limbic (emotional) center of the brain, the aroma-therapeutic effects of inhaling essential oils are tremendous and practically instantaneous. Stress Away blend can stop an anxiety attack. Valor can instill confidence. Release oil can help you to let go of past traumas. Frankincense and Citrus Fresh can help ward off depression. And the list goes on and on…

5) Fast Results – Since the essential oil molecules are so small, they are quickly absorbed through the skin and circulated throughout the body. In addition, as mentioned above, when inhaled essential oils have a nearly instant effect on the brain. Lavender oil, when applied to a burn, takes the sting out and begins to repair the tissue right away. Several of the oils have anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties and they can be used to replace some common medications. When I have a headache, Peppermint oil applied to the temples and base of the skull takes care of it in a matter of minutes. Add a couple of drops to a bottle of water and it does the same for gas or heartburn. Put a drop of Melrose or Purification on a bug bite and the sting disappears. And the list goes on and on…

6) Wide Variety – Young Living has over 150 essential oils and essential oil blends. Since many of the oils work on multiple conditions, or have several uses, their versatility allows for use in countless mental, physical, and emotional health challenges as well as to support holistic health.

7) Household & Farm Use – In addition to their health benefits, YLEOs can be used around the house and farm (kennel, etc.). You can disinfect the air and surfaces with Thieves blend. It also works to kill mold on leather and to disinfect stalls or kennels. You can use Lemon essential oil as part of a cleaner for your kitchen or bathroom. Sprinkle a couple of drops of Lavender oil on a cloth and throw it in the dryer with your clothes or sheets. Use Purification oil blend to eliminate pet and food odors from the air or to take the odor out of a gallon of paint when painting. And the list goes on and on…

Safe for use with Animals

8.) Animal Health – I love to use YLEOs on my animals. Lavender has helped to quiet my dog’s allergies. Clarity helps my 18-year-old senile kitty to remember where to find us in the middle of the night. Peace & Calming quiets my horses during a thunderstorm. I used Frankincense oil to save a dying chicken. And the list goes on and on…


Bio-Identical Progesterone enhanced with Essential Oils

9) Complimentary Products – The founder of Young Living, Dr. Gary Young, has operated a natural health clinic for many years. In addition to using the essential oils therapeutically, he and his team of scientists have formulated a wide variety of nutritional supplements and household products that harness the powers of the essential oils as well. For example, the natural progesterone product “Progessence Plus Serum” has essential oils added that have been shown to increase the potency and the duration of the bio-identical progesterone. The same can be said for the Multi-Greens capsules, the Omega Blue supplement, and the list goes on and on…

10) Discounts & Income – I started recommending essential oils to clients years ago when I opened my wellness business and (years later) I started selling them to make it easier for my clients to get them. I was pleasantly surprised when Young Living started sending me Thank You checks for helping people to naturally improve their life and health. Many Young Living essential oils are less than a penny per dose. There are a handful that cost $1 or more per drop but those are rare and it’s typically due to the rarity of the plant, the difficulty in obtaining the essential oil, or both. Most people start with the “Everyday Oils Kit” which contains 9 of the most popular and versatile oils. It’s a great introduction to using essential oils. Distributors save 24% and many people enroll as distributors simply for the savings.

When I enrolled in Young Living, I wanted to be able to provide a top-quality, natural health resource for my clients. I like that the oils are easy to use, all natural, highly effective, and affordable. In my natural health practice, I have used YLEOs to support clients with everything from neuropathy to constipation with excellent results.
