I had heard various people talk about essential oils, but with no knowledge about the subject, I didn’t think I had much use for oils. However, the more I thought about it, my interest peaked. After reading some information about candles, plug-ins, and air fresheners that highlighted some of the health risks with using these items, I decided to look into using a diffuser with oils. Now, instead of using products filled with artificial fragrances and toxins, I use a diffuser to freshen and purify the air in my home.

For about two years, I have learned about many of the harmful chemicals in personal care products. It is almost impossible to totally avoid chemicals, but if I can avoid some of them, that’s better than just blindly using whatever!  So once again, my research directed me to a company that has pure therapeutic oils and quality diffusers as well as a huge line of personal care products, including products for children and pets. And I would be leaving out one of the best products if I failed to mention the all-purpose Thieves Household Cleaner. This cleaner is derived with natural ingredients, and it works! That’s a big plus! Not to mention that it makes your house smell like Christmas! I could go on and on about the entire Thieves line of products, but I will save that for future posts!

Even if a bottle is labeled 100% Pure Essential Oil, it is no guarantee. This label means the bottle contains some pure oil. Many bottles of essential oil contain fillers that are synthetic and created in a lab instead of nature. And synthetic oils are pretty much worthless when it comes to trying to reduce chemicals and use more natural products!

Thankfully, I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils, a company with a Seed to Seal Guarantee. This company was established in 1994, long before essential oils became a buzz word! The oil process is transparent with Young Living, and people are welcome to visit the farms and see Seed to Seal in action!
