Young Living vs Other Brands of Oils

My initial experiences with essential oils started back in 2007, and it didn’t take long for me to learn that compared to Young Living essential oils, other oils were NOT as effective or sometimes not effective AT ALL. I also realized rather quickly that the education and training that Young Living offered a newbie like me was invaluable. Thankfully I came to this conclusion early on and decided to join YL and purchase their products at wholesale prices, and did so for several years prior to actively pursuing as a business earlier this year (2013).

I stumbled across the article below and 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 prices. I’m sure that there may be some oils that are just as effective but I have neither the time, nor the money to try and figure out which ones. I want a reliable source of oils that provide consistent, proven, therapeutic results and the training on how to safely use them along with it.

Did you know that 50+ hospitals across the United States are now using essential oils. Young Living oils are being used in over 50+ hospitals across our nation, to include Beth Israel Medical Center, UCLA Health Systems, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, and more. Beth Israel Medical Center in New York did extensive testing on all the different essential oil companies out there to come to the final conclusion that Young Living Essential Oils is the only one that has consistently showed positive results in their real blood lab tests which is why Young Living oils are used EXCLUSIVELY in their hospital. These facts, in and of themselves should attest to the effectiveness of our oils.


For your convenience, below I’ve embedded a link to my YouTube Channel “ESSENTIAL OIL QUALITY- Buyer Beware!” playlist collection- just one of many playlist collections you will find on my HeavenScentOils4U YouTube Channel. This particular playlist collection will hopefully assist in educating you on the differences in essential oil quality, why it MATTERS, and what’s so special about Young Living’s therapeutic-grade oils.

Should anyone approach you saying that their oils are just as effective but cheaper than Young Living’s oils check out this link first before deciding: Twelve Questions To Ask An Essential Oil Company. I’m confident that you too will come to the same conclusion as I did. I believe that Young Living essential oils are the MISSING LINK in modern medicine… and that they are changing lives one drop at a time!

    I recently went to get a massage and the massage therapist used Young Living Oils however the owner of the spa was a doTerra distributor and was selling doTerra there in her spa. We got to talking and I told her how I had just signed up to be a distributor for Young Living and she wanted to share with me the doTerra because maybe I’d like the doTerra better. However she was very wrong! I love the smell of Young Living! The doTerra smell was weak and not as enjoyable! The main one she had to share that was comparable to what I in my possession was the Peppermint. Young Living’s Peppermint smells more potent and true. doTerra’s Peppermint smelled sweet…more like candy or gum.

    Wow!!! What a great post, Dorothy!!! For me, I don’t know why anyone would consider another company’s essential oil, as I trust and value the science, testing, and quality of ours; however, I know for some it is difficult to believe that Young Living’s oils truly do give the results for so many that they do. I am so glad that I have an arsenal of Young Living’s oils to use for any issue that comes along. And like you, I wanted to know that when push comes to shove in treating an issue, esp. a major one, that I am using oils that consistently provide amazing results!!! God’s intended medicine for us & thanks to Gary Young for traveling the globe to search out oils to bring to the world, so that we can have this choice to use oils for our well-being!!! Great info in this post!

    I am often asked which Young Living essential oils or products to use for various situations. I am not a physician and therefore cannot and will not diagnose, treat or prescribe or tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do – the information I try to provide is based on personal and historical usage, and scientific study and research. The information I provide is for educational purposes only and is NOT a substitute for proper medical care. I can't tell you exactly what to do since it would be "diagnosing or prescribing." It’s against the law & I could get into trouble for that.

    As unbelievable as it sounds, current regulations make it illegal for natural supplement and food producers marketing their products to share accurate, science-based health information with you in support of their products. Unfortunately, due to current regulations I’m EXTREMELY limited in what can be said in the sharing of this information, and testimonials with you. You see, depending what is said, sharing a TESTIMONIAL may be seen as a possible “disease claim” or "prescribing" for those of us marketing Young Living products, despite the TERMS OF USE: NOTICE and DISCLAIMER posted on this website. So keeping this in mind it's more important than ever to purchase your own essential oil reference books.

    Although testimonials are anecdotal, I find them powerful tools and I personally use them when researching various issues and find them very helpful… so I would encourage you to seek them out yourself. I realize that it’s makes it harder for you to do your own research but that's our reality because of current FDA regulations.


    There is a wealth of reference material on essential oils and their properties that would be of real benefit to you. I suggest that you begin by investing in the Essential Oils Desk Reference (EODR) by Life Science Publishing, which you can find Life Science Publishers (owned by Young Living) or at AbundantHealth4U. There are a couple different versions- full, compact, and online versions to meet the needs of anyone's pocketbook. The full version of the EODR provides you with everything you might want to know about the proper use of Young Living essential oils and products, to include the science and history of essential oils, which are not contained in smaller versions. In my opinion, the EODR contains the best information available anywhere regarding the proper use of Young Living essential oils. Due to FDA regulations I consider obtaining the EODR a must have for anyone who's serious about using Young Living products. Consider it an investment in your family's future.

    There are more resource materials that I recommend and they can be found here Recommended Reference Material here.

    When searching for answers for various issues I always keep in mind that what may work for one may not work for another as everyone is unique and different, and sometimes there are more underlying conditions involved. I encourage you to begin to search out answers for yourself; and to suggest that you too may be able to find natural, gentle solutions for many issues, thereby assisting your body's innate ability to bring balance to body, mind and spirit. Please do the related research yourself to find out more, as each situation and person are different, and decide what works for you.

    References to the use of essential oils refers SOLELY to Young Living THERAPEUTIC-GRADE Essential Oils and products.

    The IMPORTANCE of using PURE, unadulterated essential oils cannot be stressed enough. Young Living essential oils are NOT your average, run of the mill "scents" you will find at your local drug or health food store. Most of the essential oils on the market are adulterated and are considered “perfume" or "aromatherapy" quality or “fourth & fifth quality” oils despite their claims of being "100% pure". You CANNOT expect to use those and get the same results!

    Adulterated oils that are cut with synthetic extenders can be VERY detrimental, causing rashes and burning, skin irritations. Petrochemical solvents can all cause allergic reactions, besides being devoid of any therapeutic effects. Please DO NOT attempt with inferior brands as it could be harmful or even toxic!

    The information offered here is not claiming to "diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent " any disease but rather put here for educational purposes only. The information provided is to suggest the "supportive" or "supplemental" nature of our products and to suggest that you may want to consider using them to help manifest optimal health, and enhance the body's God given natural ability to heal itself.

    I share testimonials so that you read for yourself the experience of others, in their own words, how they dealt with various issues and encourage you in your search for bringing balance and harmony to your life.

    I believe that many times we have other options available to us but remain unaware of those options… or are unwilling to embark into an area that is unknown to us. But sometimes taking a turn we might not otherwise have taken, or embarking on a journey outside of our comfort zone can lead us to a life-changing encounter taking us down a path that we might never have thought was even possible.

    So I would encourage you to consider the use of Young Living therapeutic-grade essential oils… in my opinion, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Because we know it may take time to find the right combinations of supplements and essential oils that work best for you we offer you a 30-day money-back guarantee. (See our GUARANTEE and RETURN policy in the HOW TO ORDER tab above.)
