[Under Construction]

Essential oils are generally defined as the volatile liquids obtained by steam distillation, hydro distillation, or hydro diffusion of aromatic plants.  Simply put, essential oils are the highly concentrated essences of aromatic plants.  Aromatherapy is the art of using these oils to promote healing of the body and mind.

Different oils have different functions, and can be used either singly or in combinations.  It is important that your therapist be educated in the proper use of these oils.  It is helpful that the client also be familiar with the particular oils being used, and their functions.

When using essential oils, it is important to understand the differences between true therapeutic-grade essential oils and synthetic essential oils.  Therapeutic-grade oils conform to standards adopted by the International Standards Organization.   While therapeutic-grade oils are expensive to produce, they are highly effective.  True therapeutic-grade essential oils are immune-system stimulating, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, antiseptic, and anti-tumoral.  Synthetic oils are available at a lesser price, but they simply do not have the healing power of the natural oils.  It is estimated that only 2% of the essential oils in use in the United States are true therapeutic-grade oils.  Essential oils from Young Living are rated as therapeutic-grade oils.

Body & Soul uses only pure therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living.  If you would like information on the essential oils that are used, please fill out a response request below.
