    Thank you for this information. I especially like the way you explained all the research Young Living does, to become FDA approved for OTC!

    Thank you Dr. Mike Buch, for this great informative audio session. I love hearing about the science, and I was wondering if it would be possible to physically see what is taking place when testing the oils? I listen to how it is done, and I’m also a visual person too, so to see it taking place might better help me understand the process as it is very fascinating to me. Even if you can not post it publicly so others to not know the secrets, maybe there could be a class at convention or even use a plant that we might not use as an essential oil, just so we can see how the process works ???

    This is really interesting! I’ve wondered why the big pharma companies don’t get on the bandwagon with natural products and essential oils, and now I know: The companies won’t invest in anything that is projected to sell less than a billion dollars the first year. It really is up to us to find healthy alternatives for ourselves!

    I am so glad to hear this, as I am curious to the science of essential oils. I am a science teacher and I really want to understand how they work, literally (scientifically). I look forward to hearing more.

    Thank you! Very interesting and enlightening. So thankful to be a part of Young Living as a user and wholesale member.

    I am so grateful for this podcast. It is so important to continue to share the science behind these amazing oils and what Young Living is doing behind the scenes with research and development. I am searching for the science that Dr. Buch just talked about, so I can clearly understand how these oils work. I love the oils I am using, but I am looking for ways to articulate to friends and family way oils are worth taking a look at other than they smell great and make me happy. Please continue to teach us and you learn through your research.
