Slide1There 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.
