  • Understanding Essential Oils


Something that was not clear to me at first is that there is a BIG difference between the types of Essential Oils. For all I knew, oils were oils, and even though I knew about Lavender scented products in my grocery store, health food stores I had no idea about the possibilities of supporting my well being naturally, with Essential Oils. Let me explain, all Young Living Essential Oils are pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. That means care has been given to every single drop, to ensure that the medicinal properties have been retained.

There are 4 Grade of Essential Oils:

GRADE A oils are pure therapeutic quality and are usually made from organically grown plants distilled at the proper temperatures using steam distillation.

GRADE B oils are food grade, they may contain synthetics, pesticides, fertilizers, extenders, or carrier oils.

GRADE C oils are perfume grade and may contain the same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils. They usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil per harvest.

FLORAL WATER is a byproduct of the distillation process, a very high quality if it comes from a GRADE A distillation process. Accordingly, it is of low quality if it comes from poor quality raw materials or poor distillation processes. It is usually found in skin and hair products.
