Essential Oil Basics
Essential oils are the vital fluids of plants, or one may call it their “life blood”. The reason the word “essential” is used is because this is what is necessary for this plant to have life.
Oils have been essential to the human life as well for thousands of years. Their fragrance is used to brighten our surroundings and our moods. Their properties provide non-chemical alternatives to cleaning supplies and beauty aids. They have also been used to help create a deeper spiritual awareness.
So how does it work? Essential oils are made up of tiny molecules. These molecules are so small that just a single drop contains 40 million-trillion molecules. That is 40,000 times the amount of molecules we have in our entire bodies! The small size of these molecules makes it easy for them to make their way into our bodies.
Convinced? The very best way to find out if they will work is for you to try them yourself! Young Living has created a kit just for you. It’s called the Premium Starter Kit. I will tell you more about the kit next.
