Choosing the Best Carrier Oils for Your Skin Type

  When mixing a carrier oil with essential oils meant for topical use, depending on what you’re using it for, you’ll want to give some thought into choosing the best carrier oils for your skin type for best results and absorption. It’s fun to create our own creams and lotions, and doing so is a wonderful way to individualize them for our own skin type and personal use, or to make gifts for others, while avoiding all the harmful chemicals found in manufactured items. Your skin is like a great big sponge and absorbs EVERYTHING that you put on it, or emmerse yourself in. I love making my own products as it allows me to know exactly what’s going onto, and into my body. During the winter, when skin can get dry, making my own body butter makes a huge diffence in my skin and allows me to customize it … 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

SAFETY ISSUES FAQ’s- Topical & Oral Applications of Essential Oils?

There are many reasons why I believe that Young Living’s essential oils are THE BEST oils on the market and try to document and explain these reasons whenever possible. I’ve added a must read article for those wanting to educate themselves and expand their knowledge base on the safe use of our oils and just updated my page ADULTERATED OILS & THEIR DANGERS with an article that was published in the July 2013 edition of Aromatopia (A Japanese journal) about the safety of neat, topical, and oral administration of essential oils entitled TOPICAL AND ORAL ADMINISTRATION OF ESSENTIAL OILS—SAFETY ISSUES by Johnson S, Boren K. Abstract. Multiple aromatherapy models exist, both advocating and discouraging neat topical and oral administration of essential oils. Recently, attention to these safety issues has expanded as a growing number of health care professionals and individuals adopt aromatherapy as an adjunct therapeutic practice.

Young Living vs Other Brands of Oils

Prior to Young Living I used to think that essential oils were really nothing more than nice smelling scents. My initial experience with Young Living’s essential oils started back in 2007 and it didn’t take long to change that line of thinking. Gary Young’s initial experience with essential oils was very similar. He had used essential oils before but pushed them aside rather quickly as they never produced consistent, reliable results. Then someone introduced him to what Gary came to term as “therapeutic-grade” essential oils… and it was a game changer. I stumbled across an article in which the author was talking about trying other oils, saying that they would work just as well but save money. I had to laugh when reading it as it mirrors my initial experience with essential oils. I too thought I could purchase other oils that would be just as effective but at lower … Continue reading
