Why Essential Oils

young Living Everyday Oils Starter PackEssential oils, known as nature’s living energy, are the natural, aromatic, volatile liquids found in leaves, stems, bark, flowers, seeds, and roots. The active components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions, and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Essential oils are extracted from aromatic plant sources via several extraction methods, with the most common method being steam distillation. The resultant essential oil is highly concentrated and far more potent than the plant part from which it was extracted. While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex, and their benefits are vast—which makes them much more than something that simply smells good.
Historically, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. With more than 200 references to aromatics, incense, and ointments throughout the Bible, essential oils are said to be used for anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherapy, massage therapy, emotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions, and much more.

Fitness – Yoga & Essential Oils

Yoga is an ancient discipline that originated in India. It focuses on joining the physical and spiritual bodies through poses (asanas) and meditation. Archaeological discoveries suggest that yoga originated sometime between 3300 and 1700 BC. Today, yoga is experiencing increased popularity worldwide as a form of relaxation, a way of deepening the mind/body connection, and as a method of total-body exercise.

Essential oils naturally complement yoga by supporting physical and mental strength and focus through the science of aromatherapy. Essential oils are extremely versatile and have many practical applications in yoga, including techniques for complementing pranayama, meditation, relaxation, post-practice. Essential oils are also used to activate and balance the energy centers of the body.
