Review: Young Living Essential Oils - High Quality Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils


Aromatherapy is something which I have always wanted to further my education in. With their beautiful scents and tremendous health benefits, these oils can actually help to treat various illnesses and evoke strong emotional reactions.

“Smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic lobe—the emotional control center—of the brain. From anxiety to depression, fatigue to stress, essential oils have long been appreciated for their uplifting, calming, and clarifying effects on emotional wellness.”

Dating back to 4500 BC, Ancient Egyptians used essential oils to treat illnesses and help to perform rituals and religious ceremonies in temples and pyramids. The three oils which are still commonly used today - cedarwood, myrrh and frankincense - were used in the embalming process. There are also more than 188 references in the Bible to oils that were used as protection against disease and for anointing and healing the sick.

A couple of months ago, I jumped on the opportunity to review Young Living’s essential oils. I had heard many positive things about Young Living and was excited to test out their products.

Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oils are pure, natural and unadulterated. They are not to be confused with synthetic, perfume-grade oils that smell pretty, these are the real thing!

Along with their large array of oils such as Lavender, Chamomile, Peppermint and other single scents, Young Living also sells blends which can be a life-saver (and a money saver) for those who don’t wish to spend a lot of money all at once on single bottles.

I tested both the Peace and Calming as well as the “Magnify Your Purpose’ oil blends and was extremely happy with both.

The Peace & Calming contains Tangerine, Ylang Ylang, Blue Tansy, Orange and Patchouli oils which encourage calmness and relaxation. Rubbing 1-2 drops on my wrists or behind my ears helped me to relax at the end of a long day. This oil was especially beneficial when giving my daughters a bath in the evening as it relaxed and wound them both down after a day of fun and excitement.

Magnifiy Your Purpose contains Sandalwood, Rosewood, Sage, Nutmeg, Patchouli, Cinnamon bark and Ginger. It “helps foster a positive attitude, encouraging you to rise above adversity, seize the initiative, overcome procrastination and self-pity, and magnify your life's purpose”.

Compared to the many other essential oil brands I have tried in the past (5-6 at least), Young Living has exceeded them all in quality and performance.
