What’s the most common question I get asked about oils? No, it’s not “what oil should I use for xxx?” It’s this:
“Why should I buy Young Living oils when I can buy oils at my health food store or on Amazon?”
Yes, Young Living has the largest selection of single essential oils and essential oil blends. And variety sure is nice! But that’s not why I chose Young Living.
This is why I chose Young Living:
I buy Young Living oils for the same reason I drive 45 minutes north once a month to buy raw milk directly from a dairy. The same reason I drive 45 minutes south 3-4 times a year to buy a freezer full of grass-fed meat directly from the farm. It’s the same reason I am a member & volunteer at a local vegetable farm & their CSA program.
Young Living is the ONLY essential oil company that owns their farms. They are the only company that plants the seeds for the plants. They grow the plants, harvest the plants, distill the oils, test the oils for quality, package the oils, and mail the oils to me. They are the ONLY essential oil company that does that.
I buy over half of the food that comes into my house directly from the farmer (dairy, animal, & vegetable) that grows it. I buy my oils the same way, directly from the farmer.
