Going Out of Business
YOUng Living Essential Oils
I tried to communicate with Young Living in many ways- unsuccessfully
I waited on the phone for customer service for hours
I tried Live Help Chat window and got no response
I sent CERTIFIED MAIL, it was not signed for, I received no return receipt
I decided I was wasting my time.
That is why I am leaving
I am going out of business as a Young Living distributor
In addition, many oils are out of stock
Why is there not more customer service staff?
You can find me here now.
You can find a lot of webpages from YL distributors telling you its good news that there are shortages. I don't see it that way.
Common Myths About the Essential Oils
1) The essential oils are the "Lifeblood of the Plant" - the oils are not a circulating fluid, that would be xylem and phloem. Oils are not found in every part of the plants they exist in otherwise we would distill the whole plant. Most plants don't even produce essentail oils.
2) It is safe to consume or apply neat any pure essential oil. Here again, some oils will burn and people and animals vary in their sensitivity. It doesn't help their condition to tell them they are toxic either.
3) Essential Oils last forever. Many essential oils degrade over time especially citrus due to limonene oxidation and "blue" oils that contain chamazulene. Keep these oils refrigerated and minimize air space in the container. Many heavier oils like sandalwood do in fact last a very long time.
4) The essential oils were used in the Bible times. There was no evidence of steam distallation so they were using some other form of extraction like solvents. Those products would not have been the same as what we understand as essential oils.
Rules for Using Essential Oils:
Respect the power of the oils as you would medicine
Raindrop Therapy is Aromatherapy malpractice according to many professional aromatherapists
Respect for the power of the oils prevents you from burning your clients
Avoid sensitive areas of the body like mucous membranes, eyes
Only use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
Methods for Using the Essential Oils
Diffusion - produces a mist of finely atomized essential oil vapor that is effective in purifying air and administering oils to breathing beings in the vicinity.
Best accomplished with an electric diffuser that does not heat the oils.
Topical aplication - apply therapeutic grade oils directly to the skin, using care not to apply to sensitive areas or to touch sensitive areas inadverently following application. A parent should apply them one the bottoms of the feet of small children to avoid them rubbing their eyes etc. Massage techniques have been developed around applications of essential oils including Foot Reflexology. Application of warm essential oils like Oregano and Thyme should be used diluted and with care. Some people are even sensitive to lavender and melaleuca oils.
Ingestion - taking essential oils internally should only be attempted with therapeutic grade oils. Situations where you might use essential oils internally include:
Lemon oil or another oil to purify your glass of water.
A digestive effective oil like Digestive Blend, Fennel or Peppermint for stomach upsets or imbalnce.
Gargling with immune blend for throat support
Rubbing Clove oil onto gums for dental support
Oils from herbs like Oregano, Basil, Peppermint may be added to recipes for authentic flavor in cooking. Remember to add them at the end to keep as much oil in the pie as possible.
