There are few things better then the refreshing smell of high grade, quality essential oils!  They can help you relax, focus, or just make your day a little brighter!

NEW AGE?:  Unfortunately, the essential oil movement is rather riddled with Eastern Pagan Mysticism.  Scripture talks of those who worship the creature rather than the Creator and this is a great modern example of that.  True Joy and Peace will never be found in a bottle of any size or contents.  Only reconciliation with the Creator can give those things in a permanent way!  (AKA: The Gospel)

Personally, I feel that Essential Oils and Natural Health Support are areas that the church has neglected for too long!  These fields are ripe for great discussions on the original goodness of creation and the devastation wrought by man’s rebellion against God.  A proper view of oils and all other natural preparations is that they are gifts from our Loving Father, to be used in a way that glorifies Him!

QUALITY: While there are various companies that, I believe, sell good quality oils; there is also a dark side:  Super cheap oils that have been “cut” with chemicals and/or filler oils.

Case in point:  I’ve always loved Lavender!  We’ve grown it for the majority of my life and I have no problems with it.  Enter “Lavender Oil” packaged for adding to homemade soap.  Every time I smelled that stuff I’d get a headache.  (And due to a leak, the whole container of soap supplies smelled like it. Ugh.) Over the years I periodically tried other “Lavender Oils”- and every time a splitting headache would result.  Finally, one brand gave me only a slight one if I was around it for a long time;  and I thought I’d found the best solution.  Then I tried Young Living’s Lavender.  No headaches, ever!  I can smell it, wear it, and diffuse it with out the slightest bit of pain!  Young Living has what they call the “Seed to Seal” promise.  They select and grow the seeds, that become the plants, that are then harvested, distilled, bottled, and sealed with Young Living controlling every stage of the process!

VARIETY: If the only thing Young Living (also known as YL) sold was headache-free Lavender, I’d be on board.  However they sell much more then that!  They have an awesome selection of individual oils, (I dare anyone to smell their Lemon oil and not smile!)- and a crazy selection of blends!  The happy mix of Lime and Vanilla found in “StressAway” puts a bounce in one’s step on the rainiest day, and the soothing effects of “DiGize” are greatly appreciated by my sometimes disagreeable tummy!  Besides making the house smell homey, diffusing “Thieves”  makes our home a less-than-cozy abode for any airborne nastiness!   That’s not even touching the uses of “Dragon Time”, “MelRose”, “Purification”, “PanAway” and “RC”!

Want to see all that Young Living sells for yourself?  Here is the latest Product Guide:

 

COST: Being of the “thrifty” sort, I took a close look at the blends of other brands.  The conclusion I came to was that though there were in fact other blends crafted with the same end result in mind, they generally contained fewer oils, making them less versatile, and therefore requiring the purchase of more oils to fill the gap.  Add in the 24% off for Members, the fact that the Premium Starter Kit comes with 11 different oils (plus a $84 value diffuser),. the opportunity to earn money back with Essential Rewards and Sharing YL with others, and the tiny amount of oils needed in most cases; and this tightwad gladly made the $160 investment!

SAFETY:  This is the topic that concerns me the most.  The internet is full of both horror stories and bad, unreliable info.  I want to use my oils to help- not hurt.  My approach was to take it slow-  if smelling laboratory created scents in candles and “Room Fresheners” hadn’t hurt me (minus some headaches) then I was fairly sure that smelling natural extractions from God-Created plants would likely be OK.  What is more, it does actually work for many applications!

After getting comfortable with that, I got access to Robert Tisserand’s “Essential Oil Safety 2nd Edition”.  It is a HUGE book meant for health experts who wish to use Essential Oils in their practice.  It has both dilution guides and notices for interactions between oils and certain medications.  I highly recommend both it and it’s dilution guides for topical and internal use.  *NOTE*: If you are using small amounts of non-skin irritating oils on a non-daily basis but rather as the needs arise, then the dilution rates need to be adjusted.  The topical dilution rates given were written with a full-body massage in mind and there is a formula for figuring out the dilution rate needed for minor applications, in the Notes section preceding the Essential Oil Profiles.  So far, they have worked out to the same recommendation as are found on the YL bottles themselves.

As far as internal use is concerned, for my purposes, a toothpick dipped in an oil from YL’s Vitality line (which are all specially labeled for internal use) and then swirled in a teaspoon of honey has always worked fine.  Oil and Water do not mix, therefore I do not drink oils mixed only with water.  Honey, Maple Syrup, and Agave Nectar actually combine with and dilute the oil! (And make some a little more palatable!!)

Long story short, when used with moderation, common sense, and careful research, Essential Oils can be safe, enjoyable, and effective!!
