"Did you know that the essential oil industry is expected to double in the next 5 years. That it is expected to reach a $50 billion industry by 2020. What does this mean? It means that if you aren't currently using oils, it is likely that you will be in the next 5 years.
Consumers are demanding healthier products (and rightly so!), and they are seeing the benefits of essential oils! So why *wouldn't* companies give them what they want? I get it! I truly do! But what companies like the one below *don't* understand is that putting a $9.99 bottle of essential oil in someone's hand is NOT fulfilling the need they are asking to be met. It's doing more harm than good.
How do you get a $9.99 bottle of essential oil? One of two ways:
1. Buy plants from farmers on the cheap. Which begs the question: how do you get cheap plants? Just ask your local farmer: Spray them with chemicals to keep bugs off and weeds away so you don't have to pay people to tend the fields (exactly why I love our local organic farmers! It is a labor of love!) 2. Dump chemicals into the still during distillation (the process where you get the oils out of the plants) to speed up the time it takes to get the oils out of the plants. Time = money. Unfortunately for the companies that do this, they don't realize that essential oil distillation is a science, and without the science, you can actually harm the heck out of people's bodies.
This is your Public Service Announcement for the day. Don't waste your money or risk your health. Young Living is the *only* essential oil company that owns its own farms and partners with trusted growers. They are the only ones that control the process from the seed to the bottle. They are the only company with over 20 years of experience with essential oils. They don't really have competitors because literally no one else comes *close* to this sort of knowledge when producing oils.
So this is your PSA--when you are ready for oils, save yourself the time, frustration, and energy. Young living goes beyond standards to be exceptional. Truly, friends don't let friends do ridiculous things, like pay $9.99 for a bottle of essential oil (regardless of the scent!). "
