Young Living Essential Oils
As a Registered Dietitian and integrative practitioner, I am always seeking to address the root cause and utilize natural solutions that support health and well-being. Essential oils are highly concentrated, aromatic plant-based extracts that have been used for thousands of years in various cultures to support mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.
When it comes to our health, it is extremely important to reduce exposure to chemicals and toxins as much as possible, and one of the first places we can start is in our home. Fragrances and chemicals found in candles, conventional household cleaners and personal care products , which negatively impact health and can contribute to chronic disease, inflammation, hormone and mood imbalances, anxiety and weight loss resistance.
Essential oils and nontoxic products that contain them are natural alternatives that can replace conventional products while also supporting the health of our mind, body and energy.
Essential oils are extremely supportive of mental and emotional health because the olfactory senses are connected to the limbic brain, which is responsible for emotions and memories. This is why memories and scents are tied together and inhaling or diffusing essential oils is one of the quickest ways to induce both physiological and psychological benefits.
In addition, chronic stress is inflammatory and continually puts us into survival mode, also known as “fight or flight” or sympathetic mode. Essential oils are extremely powerful stress reducers and are a simple yet effective way to downregulate the stress response and get back into parasympathetic mode, or “rest and digest”, which is where healing takes place.
I choose Young Living because they offer the best and purest essential oils in the industry, and is the only company that both owns and operates all of the farms at which their products are grown. From Seed to Seal, they control every aspect of the essential oil process. Their oils are therapeutic grade, meaning that every essential oil that they distill or source has the highest naturally occurring blend of constituents to maximize the desired effect, and is the Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ promise (YLTG).
