  • Heal skin conditions.
  • Alleviate pain.

Each oil is listed below with a brief blub on what they are used for. 

How do you use them?

Essential oils have been used for hundreds of year.  Each oil from a part of the plant.  This can be leaves, stems, bark, buds even the resin is used.

They can be used in your daily beauty regime, for cleaning your home and for your health and wellbeing. It all depends on what you need them for and how to use them.

They can be inhailed, diffused, mixed in carrier oils and added to your bath water.  FDA does not recommend consuming them because there have been no testing proving they survive your stomach acids.  Anyone who says it’s acceptable to consume needs to read the FDA letter to Young Living about their “healing practices” and how there is no documentation.

These are the organic essential and oils we use in our products available to you!
I have been asked repeatedly about the quality and dilution of our essential oils.  ALL of our oils are 100% Essential Oil, nothing diluted.  When I discovered how much doTerra and Young Living was charging for oils I started researching.  I purchase from wholesalers who in turn purchase from ORGANIC farms where applicable. 

There is no such thing as “organic” or “therapeutic grade” essential oils.  The FDA and USDA has no such listing.  It is a marketing ploy to corner the market in order to charge potential customers outrageous prices.  In addition doTerra and Young Living are pyramid schemes like Amway.
If you have any questions about Young Live or doTerra here are the latests letters from the FDA for Inspections, Compliance, Enforcement, and Criminal Investigations
