Essential oils comes up A LOT in our online sensory groups and discussion boards.
I am the biggest skeptic around, meaning I seriously take my time before deciding something is actually helpful. I don’t want just one or two anecdotes. I want to hear from the whole community. And it’s just tough to argue with how well essential oils helps many of our sensory kids!
Personally, I’ve used peppermint hand lotion to give me that afternoon kick to keep going. And I bet you use scents in your house to inspire, sooth and jazz up without really thinking about it. Essential oils is just a more targeted way of doing that.
Why Do I Choose Young Living Essential Oils?
It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it? I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.
1. Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.
2. Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing. With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several. I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.
3. Other people I know and trust and whose opinions and insights I value, did the same research and came to the same conclusion. I have joined a team of fabulous women with sensory kiddos who use oils everyday in their homes. Their insights have been extremely helpful. And for those that purchase through me, we have a secret FB board for parents to share their insights and use of essential oils in their own homes.
