It's allergy season which can make people miserable! Young Living Essential Oils work so good for allergies that you don't have to take pills! Now, I know there are a lot of opinions out there about using essential oils and which ones are the best. I promise on this blog that I won't recommend anything that I haven't personally tried myself. When I was first looking into essential oils a few years ago, I researched the options out there and decided to go with Young Living. I was impressed by their high quality standards and their Seed to Seal process. They even own a lot of their own farms! Here's a PDF that talks about what makes Young Living different than other essential oil companies.
It's important to know how to use oils properly, especially because the highest quality oils are the most potent. See Young Living's Essential Oil Safety Guide. I personally don't ingest them internally because I have a sensitive system. But I know many people who do. So my word of advice is, if you do decide to ingest them internally, only use the highest quality oils (Young Living has a Vitality Dietary line) and always dilute them (in water or preferably with oil). See my page that includes information and links about safety. On a side note: I highly recommend buying a starter kit (yes, I am biased). You not only get a diffuser, but a special assortment of oils to get you started. Here's a link on how that process works, but contact me with questions and I will walk you through the process. If you do order a starter kit through me, I send you some awesome freebies including a Reference Guide and a laminated “recipe” booklet :).
