Have you ever wondered why store bought essential oils are so much cheaper? Think QUALITY! Like with anything else, you get what you pay for. If I was to purchase oils from Walmart, Target, Hobby Lobby or even Amazon sure I would save money, but I would be compromising quality so I would not benefit from the magical powers of the oils.
There are few regulations when it comes to essential oils. Manufacturing regulations requires a minimum of 5% pure oil inside a bottle to earn a “100% pure therapeutic grade oil” label. This means that up to 95% of the bottle could be synthetic or altered oils. This is why it makes it so difficult to determine which brands are actually pure essential oils.
If you ever get the chance to smell a Young Living (YL) lavender and a store-bough lavender oil you’ll notice that the YL brand is a lot more potent. This is because YL brand is pure and does not contain synthetic or altered oils.
Young Living owns their own farms, harvest their own plants and own several distilleries around the world. I love that their farms are open to the public so you can visit their farms and see that they weed by hand and use essential oils as all-natural pesticide. You can also see their entire seed to seal process which starts from the point they distill the plant to when they bottle it up.
Because they have complete quality control, they can guarantee 100% purity of their oils.
This is the reason why I love and have chosen the Young Living brand…their transparency.
