The Beginning of Young Living

Have you ever wondered how Young Living Essential Oils began? Where it all started? Back in July of 2015, Gary Young, founder of Young Living, published a series of posts on his blog, detailing the highlights of what led him down the path towards essential oils. It’s a fascinating read and reveals his PASSION for essential oils and the reason why he has made his life’s goal to take Young Living essential oils to every home in the world. Actually Gary Young’s whole life, before discovering essential oils, prepared him for the path that God had chosen for his life. Life was not easy for the Young family by any means, and in many ways mirrors that of our forefathers who founded this country. You see Gary grew up in a 16×20-foot cabin with a dirt floor until the age of 4. Then his father, Donald N. Young, built a … Continue reading

Incorporating Essential Oils Into Recipes

I love incorporating essential oils into recipes. It’s a lot easier than some might think and only takes a second. Adding essential oils to a recipe has a two fold purpose… not only does it enhance the taste of the dish but more importantly it provides all the benefits of that particular essential oil and assures me that everyone eating the dish receives those benefits.  A great way to share with your family members, especially children, and you don’t even have to tell them. It really is as simple as adding an oil of the same ingredient. Let me explain… last night I made salsa using fresh produce from my garden, to go with the Taco Salad we were having for dinner. The salsa recipe calls for lime juice, sooooo…. I also add a drop or two of lime essential oil. A couple words of caution here though… I almost never add the … Continue reading

Shelf Life of Essential Oils

by David Stewart, Ph.D., R.A. People who use adulterated or synthetic oils worry about shelf life. Some British references on aromatherapy say one should throw away their oils every six months and purchase a fresh quantity. Such advice may be valid for certain carrier blend oils, but is not valid for pure unadulterated aromatic oils that are the products of distillation. In order to discuss shelf life, you need to distinguish between various classes of scented oils. There are four types of fragrant oils to consider: (1) Essential oils (distilled). (2) Expressed oils (usually citrus); (2) Absolutes (solvent extractions); and (4) Carrier Blend Oils (essential oils in a fatty base). The shelf lives of these four classes of aromatic oils are different. While expressed, absolute, and carrier blend oils contain large molecules along with their small aromatic ones, pure essential oils obtained entirely by distillation contain only small molecules. Large … Continue reading

Benefits of a Health Journal!

The benefits of a health journal to record health related issues over time goes beyond the obvious… tracking what you used on whom, when you used it, including what worked and what didn’t! It’s a wonderful way to clarify your thoughts and experiences, and in the future will provide you with a window to the past and will be a wonderful record of past experiences to refer to. Although I store tons of information and documents on my computer which makes it great for researching however it is NOT always convenient to have to use my computer to look up information, especially in the middle of the night. Having all this information on “my” computer also prevents my family members from finding information I’ve saved. Having a health journal makes it quick and easy for everyone in the family to look up information I’ve saved on various topics or to … Continue reading

Man’s First Use of Essential Oils?

Ancient writings, traditions, and historical records dating back to 4500 B.C. confirm man’s first use of essential oils and aromatics. Early historical records and writings record the use of aromatics as the evidence clearly suggests that the use of aromatic substances made from barks, resins, spices, and aromatic vinegars, wines, and beers were common place. It appears that the people from our ancient past had a greater understanding of the effectiveness and power of essential oils than we have today although the tide is turning as more and more research is being conducted on essential oils. According to my main resource reference book on essential oils… “The Eygptians were masters in using essential oils and other aromatics in the embalming process. Historical records describe how one of the founders of “pharonic” medicine was the architect Imhotep, who was the Grand Vizler of King Djoser (2780 – 2720 BC). Imhotep is … Continue reading
