Young Living

There’s a lot of “stuff” out there: false advertising, people trying to make a quick buck, empty promises. It gets frustrating if one is exposed to this time and time again.

That’s why it’s important to relish the good ones.

One up and coming area of medicine is technically not medicine at all. At least not in the Western sense. It’s oils. Essential oils are definitely something that seem a bit eyebrow raising. Healing? From an oil? Highly unlikely. But there has to be some documented proof, right?

Young Living boasts “therapeutic grade” oils, meaning they are pure enough to combat disease and ailments of almost any kind. They take great care to harvest the plants that produce the oils at peak season, as well as provide for the environment that houses the plants. It isn’t a “harvest and see ya” operation. For more information about this, there is a snapshot of information here:

There are many stories of the flu and colds being cured in a matter of hours instead of days using oil blends such as “RC” and “Thieves”. RC combines eucalyptus, myrtle, pine, marjoram, lavender, cypress, tsuga, and peppermint, and is recommended for respiratory illnesses. Thieves contains clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary cincol, and will help with anything related to the immune system.

A recent example is one of a young boy who got his hand pinched in a closet door. Swelling and a large pinch mark were forming on his palm and he was obviously in a great deal of pain. His mother tried a wet washcloth, ice, and finally kisses, but the pain was still intense. The mother then put lavender oil directly onto the hand and within three minutes, the little boy had fallen asleep on his mother’s lap, peacefully.

Another example is of a man who was suffering from a high fever and chills. He rubbed Thieves oil on his feet (one of the most porous places on the body) and within two hours, his fever had broken.

These are just a couple of stories in a long line of happy endings.

Young Living oils are of high quality, so the cost is substantially higher than the oils at a supermarket. But they last. A bottle of lavender through Young Living is approximately $25, but it will last through many months as only a drop or two is needed for each application.
