Young Living has the best essential oils on the market, hands down. They source from their own farms using organic, sustainable practices and extract the essential oils safely from the plant. Essential oils come from the plant’s leaves, seeds, nuts, and fruit. By using steam distillation or cold-pressed technology the oils are then extracted. Here are the basics, or Essential Oils 101, to help you learn more about them.
