I’ve verbally used this analogy for years but I love the visual that someone shared and it inspired me to put pen to paper ;)  
I was talking to a friend the other day and out of nowhere, she says, “Okay, I seriously don’t get your obsession with essential oils. We used an entire bottle of Lavender over the course of a month to help our son sleep and it did absolutely nothing.”

When I asked her where she got the Lavender she said, “Target. It was 3 bucks in the dollar spot section.”

So here’s the deal friends. I’m gonna say this really loud for the skeptics in the back. IT MATTERS WHERE YOU BUY YOUR OILS FROM!

I could stand on my soapbox and talk about safety and purity for days, but let’s just take a quick look at quality.

Young Living is the only company that can guarantee you’re getting a first distillation batch of oils.

First distillation? What the heck does that mean?

Let’s talk about it from the perspective of coffee. We all understand coffee right?

The coffee on the left was the first pot of coffee I brewed this morning with fresh ground beans. That’s a first distillation cup of coffee.

I then brewed another cup using the same grounds as before. Second distillation.

Making se

I did this four more times using those same coffee grounds getting me all the way to a 6th distillation cup of coffee.

This is what you’re buying off of the shelf of Target, WalMart, TJMaxx, WholeFoods, or any other big box retailer. 6th distillation (or even higher) bottles of oils. On average, most companies are taking these 6th distillations (and higher), adding in some synthetic materials, putting them on their shelves, and calling this dirty water, essential oils.

That’s why they don’t work for you. If this was how Starbucks was brewing and serving up your coffee, I’m pretty certain you’d frantically search for a better option.

So if essential oils aren’t working for you, if my posts about them make you roll your eyes because you’ve been there, done that with no success, think about the source and consider a better option.

We can have a real coffee or tea if you prefer...same concept ;) and I can help you learn more about pure oils as we have the real stuff that we diffuse throughout our home, put on and in our bodies and we enjoy how they support all the things to be better versions of ourselves.
