oil basics

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. The compounds that make up an essential oil defend plants against bugs, environmental conditions and disease. Young Living offers hundreds of single oils, blends, and oil-infused products- each containing the optimal levels of specific, naturally occurring constituents to maximize their benefits. They help support the different systems of the body: muscular, nervous, digestive, as they do not contain chemicals or artificial fragrances.

How to use Essential Oils?

Always consult individual product labels for usage

Aromatically - Use essential oils aromatically to uplift the spirit. Inhale directly from the bottle or diffuse.
Topically - Many essential oils are safe and beneficial to use directly on the skin. Apply directly to the skin, often diluted with Young Living's V6 Vegetable oil Complex.
Internally - enjoy NingXia Red, the new to Canada + Line of flavouring essential oils and all the amazing oil-infused wellness products!

Oily Tips:

+ Dilute with a carrier oil. Use of a carrier oil will not dilute the effect of the essential oil but will ensure that the oils applied topically are not irritating or overpowering.
+ Never use water if you experience irritation. If essential oils get in your eyes or cause irritation to skin, flush and dilute the area with a safe carrier oil to alleviate discomfort.
+ Don't apply essential oils to sensitive areas. We recommend that you avoid applying essential oils to sensitive areas such as eyes, ears, and mucous membranes.
