About Essential Oils


For thousands of years people have relied on essential oils to infuse their lives with benefits, from enhancing beauty and adding flavor to food to elevating spiritual and religious practices. Young Living has been at the forefront of using industry-leading science to share the legitimacy of age-old practices with modern users—introducing millions to life-changing wellness.

Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more potent than the botanicals from which they’re derived. Any time you hold a bottle of Young Living’s powerful essential oils, you hold nature's pure essence.

How to Use Essential Oils

You can access the power of essential oils in many ways, but the most common practices include aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption. These methods bring the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals to your home, family, and life.

Inspire a positive emotional state

Love the way the fragrance from a fresh orange peel brightens your day? Each essential oil’s complex, unique aroma can trigger emotions and memories, which can help in your search for a more fulfilling and balanced life.

To help you rediscover peace, comfort, and joy, there are a variety of essential oils and blends you can explore—find your favorite scent and enjoy it in your diffuser, in a soothing bath or massage, through direct inhalation, or in topical application.

Enhance Your Physical Wellness

Modern lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and an abundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and with diminished energy levels. Find the solutions you need to help you feel your best—including essential oils and essential oil-infused weight management and supplemental support products.

Enhance Spiritual Awareness

Bold, grounding aromas have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. The pure constituents in essential oils create stimulating scents that help trigger impactful emotions and memories and affect one’s state of mind, enhancing meditation and other spiritual practice. To enhance your spiritual practice, dilute and apply empowering essential oils directly to wrists and feet and behind the ears; or diffuse the oils in a quiet space. Popular essential oils and blends for spiritual focus include:
