Why Do Companies Sell Cheap Essential Oils?
Most essential oils are sold more cheaply because companies cut corners. So you risk using essential oils that have chemical solvents or low-grade ingredients. When you buy them cheap – that means you have to use MORE of it, which really doesn’t save you money in the long run.
Pesticides, pollution, previously farmed land – all of it can affect the quality of an oil. Why would you go the extra step of using an essential oil to get away from a toxic chemical-and then use an oil laden with chemicals? It makes no sense, right?
So as you can see quality makes a big difference. I’d rather use just a little of the best quality oil, like Young Living, for my family. And really, you’ll see that with Young Living a little really goes a long way.
One of the things that stands out to me is Young Living’s Seed to Seal process which means each plant is hand-weeded, there are no pesticides used, no chemicals, and no weed killers.
Members can actually visit Young Living farms to be a part of the harvest and replanting each year. That kind of transparency is just unheard of with other companies.
