I now use some Doterra oils! Gasp!
I researched both and found that I prefer Young Living for medicinal purposes but that Doterra is totally safe when trying to replace toxic fragrance in my home. Not all essential oils are safe. MANY are filled with toxic junk and called “essential oils” which is so sad. I feel like we can’t wins sometimes! But we do the best we can to keep everything we can nontoxic.
#1 YOUNG LIVING FARMS
Young Living owns their own farms to ensure better than organic standards for their crops, starting with the soil & the optimal environment for each crop. Why does this matter? One drop of essential oils is as potent as 20-40 cups of tea, depending on the plant, so it is imperative that the oils be pure in every way and not include any synthetics or harmful chemicals. Because there is no regulation or industry standard on language, the only way to ensure the highest quality of essential oils is to trust the company you choose to use.
#2. YOUNG LIVING IS TRANSPARENT
Anyone can visit the Young Living farms & participate in the harvest and distillation process. Young Living is completely transparent with the entire process.
#3. SEED TO SEAL
The Seed to Seal promise ensures that the entire process is quality controlled, from the soil the plant was grown in to the day the bottle was filled and shipped, including particular details such as not allowing plants to touch the ground after harvest.
#4. FIRST DISTILLATION ONLY
Young Living essential oils are first distillation oils ONLY. They are distilled in stainless steel. Young Living sets the global standard for essential oil quality.
#5. RIGOROUS TESTING
Each batch of essential oils is rigorously tested, in-house, and through third-party testing. There has never been a Young Living essential oil recalled.
#6. BETTER THAN ORGANIC STANDARDS
Better than organic standards means that all pest control at the farms is done with essential oils and all weed control is done by hand. Young Living doesn’t allow bad attitudes, foul language or discord near the plants or on the farms. Harmony is essential for the integrity of the plant.
#7. OPTIMUM HARVEST TIME
The size of Young Living also ensures they have the staffing to check crops every 20 minutes, around the clock, for the optimum time to harvest the plants.
#8. EXPERIENCE AND RESEARCH
Young Living has 25 years of experience and research.
#9. SELECTION OF OILS
Young Living has the greatest selection of singles and blends available. Their research is unmatched. Young Living has a bio-identical progesterone serum that you cannot get anywhere else. Young Living even has a safe, non-stick titanium pan that is ah-may-zing.
#10. SUPPORT, EDUCATION & COMMUNITY
The support, education, and community that we provide makes joining Young Living an incredible, empowering experience. I will personally walk you through your toxin-free, essential oil journey with you. Our group is uplifting and encouraging and full of people that I love to learn from every day. You will learn and grow in ways you didn’t think imaginable.
WHAT ABOUT DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS?
I do not believe in feuds or bad feelings of any type between anyone…..I love and respect you for the choices you make for your family. Stay-at-home mom vs work-at-home mom. Doterra vs Young Living. Christian or Catholic. I love you all.
I have some REALLY close friends who chose DoTerra. I have researched them also and I can tell you that Doterra is totally safe! I love and cherish my oily friends no matter what essential oil company they chose. They are SO knowledgeable and I love to collaborate on all things natural wellness, regardless of the oil company.
I actually started using Doterra because I loved whisper! It became my personal fragrance when I was writing this post and searching for a personal fragrance to replace my perfumes! There just weren’t any Young Living oils that really felt like a perfume to me. And my DIY recipes are pretty simple. I am not a perfume mixer who understand high and low notes, etc.
