Retail Account vs. Wholesale Account

When setting up a Young Living Account you have two choices- retail or wholesale.

Retail accounts are good for those who already have a line of oils that they purchase from on a regular basis. You pay full price for oils, no reduced shipping and no chance to earn free oils with the retail account.

If you are new to essential oils, you may be tempted to just set up a retail account. But there are many benefits to a wholesale account.
  1. 24% discount on all oils
  2. Reduced shipping
  3. Chance to earn free oils

Why Young Living is My Favorite Esssential Oil Company

How Essential Oils Work

This is a very general explanation of how essential oils work. I wont be going into the chemistry that heavily. Maybe that will be a future post.

According to Essential Oils Pocket Reference Guide-
"Essential oils have the unique ability to penetrate the cell membranes and travel throughout the blood and tissues."

The smell of essential oils seems to have a powerful effect on ourlimbicsystem. Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound effects on our well-being.

How Essential Oils Are Made

Here is a generalvideoon the process to make Lavender Oil.

It is important to note that for every kilogram of pure lavender essential oil that is produced, an estimated 10-100 kilograms of synthetic lavender oil is made. Adulterated oils that are mixed with synthetic extenders can be very detrimental, causing rashes, burns and skin reactions, besides being devoid of any therapeutic effects.  
This is why it is so important to purchase oils from a reputable company such as Young Living.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are the  aromatic, volatile liquid that is within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. Essential oils are usually extracted through stream distillation. This life giving fluid carries nutrients and oxygen to the different parts of the plant. Plants use these fluids to heal, nourish, communicate and protect themselves.

What Plants Talk Aboutis a great documentary if you would like to learn more about plant interactions.
