Essential oils and botanical uses date back to as far as over 5,000 years ago!!! From the Egyptians, Romans, Persians to Germans, these oils have been used for wellness, beauty, food, religion and spiritual purposes! So although these oils are becoming more and more popular in the modern world as technology and research continues to advance….. many of their benefits were discovered dating as far back as 1500 B.C!!!
Just a few examples…
- used for embalming in mummification process in Egypt
- bathing and cleansing properties used in Rome
- in the Israelite culture there are stories of essential oils being the gifts given during the birth of Jesus Christ
- they were often used to elevate spiritual practices
- herbs and essentials oils were used for medicinal purposes
Fast forward centuries later to founder of Young Living- D. Gary Young. He spent 34 years researching the distillation process of essential oils. He made it his goal to offer only pure and potent essential oils that were tested thoroughly by experts. This is why he established the Seed to Seal commitment; that Young Living will sell only 100% pure, natural, uncut oils!
There is so much comfort and pride in knowing the remedies I’m using on myself, on my loved ones and sharing with others- not only have natural uses and benefits dating back 5,000 years but that even in the modern world, they have been tested and developed to only be offered in their purest form.
These oils have replaced our over the counter drugs (ibuprofen, prilosec, tums, icy hot, abreva, vicks vapor rub) replaced harsh cleaning chemicals in my home with all natural ones, given me DIY all natural alternatives to common, everyday products (bug spray, sunscreen, tick repellent, candles, weed killer, air fresheners, etc.) improved my skin and hair in multiple aspects, helped with relaxation and anxiety, and that’s just to name a few!
