It is a HOT topic right now. Naturally, that means writing a blog about it. Around the internet and all of the different social media outlets, you will hear ‘Do NOT ingest essential oils!’.
They are right, to a POINT.
Have you ever thought about that peppermint flavored gum you like so much, or the spearmint gum? What makes that flavor? Plant oils of course. They use the distillation process to obtain their essential oil to make their flavor of gum! Interesting right?
Why if we ingest essential oils every single day in so many of our food products are people screaming at the top of their lungs to not ingest essential oils?
I will tell you why.
If you buy a bottle filled with essential oils and ingest it, you are running a high risk of ingesting concentrated pesticides, synthetics, fragrances, and other potent chemicals.
Another thing necessary to mention is the essential oil industry is NOT FDA regulated so they are not able to monitor what is being put into these little bottles filled with ‘100% therapeutic essential oils’.
Why then will so many, myself included, ingest Young Living essential oils?
What makes them so different?
Seed to Seal is a HUGE reason that Young Living is set apart. You can learn all about their Seed to Seal process HERE. They monitor their plants from the purest seed throughout the entire process till it comes to your home in a sealed bottle.
They have their own farms, as well as partnered farms all throughout the country.
What makes their partnered farms different from others ‘partnered farms’? These partnered farms have to be extensively trained in their Seed to Seal process before becoming a partner farm. They are held to the HIGHEST industry standards found in the essential oil world.
Aside from this Seed to Seal process, there is one thing that stood out to myself and so many others.
You can go visit their farms all over the world. I know people who have been a part of the planting process. You are able to tour their facilities. The transparency with Young Living is like glass. They will answer an amazing amount of questions with their awesome customer service and they take their standards very seriously.
I always encourage people to do their research on any company. Call different companies and have a list of questions for them.
So why do so many ingest Young Living essential oils?
The reason behind this is simple. Those who use Young Living essential oils KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS IN THEIR BOTTLES.
There are NO pesticides or synthetics. No chemicals or solvents added to their oils. Those who choose Young Living as their essential oil brand know that the only thing in their 15ml bottle of Lemon essential oil, is the essential oil from 75 lemons.
The 15ml lavender oil they receive only contains the 27 square feet of lavender that have been hand weeded and cared for with the utmost care.
The 15ml bottle of peppermint oil only has 1 pound of pure peppermint oil in their bottles.
Ingesting something that you KNOW what it is, is not frightening.
There is no difference between squeezing your lemon in your water from dropping one drop of Young Living essential oil into your stainless steel water bottle filled with water.
The Young Living Vitality line are all essential oils that are listed by the FDA as generally regarded as safe! Want to check out the list yourself? HERE it is!
The crucial factor when it comes to ingesting essential oils is knowing and trusting the company. If you KNEW that there were only lemons in your bottle of lemon oil, why would you not ingest it? Unless you just don’t like lemon of course!
