Like most things in life, all essential oils are not created equal. Many are watered down, cut, or even artificial imitations. They may smell nice, but they cannot deliver the healing possibilities that come from true, authentic essential oils; with pure oils, the healing abilities are simply amazing.
The only essential oils I use on myself and my clients are from Young Living. Their "Seed to Seal" process ensures that only the highest-quality essential oils from around the world are used in the final product. Briefly, this means the company authenticates quality at each stage of the production process by verifying plant species, growing and cultivating plants carefully, properly distilling the pure plant essence, testing to verify the optimal level of constituents, and expertly bottling the final product. No other company in the world invests as much research, innovation, quality, and personnel in their products.
To be sure you are using the best oils available, ask a few questions of the manufacturer: How do they verify source, authenticity, and proper preparation? Who oversees the manufacturing process, and what is their expertise? Does the company have firsthand knowledge of each part of the supply chain? How long have they been in business? Have they invested in their own facilities, farms, distillation, manufacturing, and laboratories? If the answer to any of your questions only leaves you with more questions, maybe it’s time to investigate another supplier.
