Essential Oils Are Too Expensive!

“Essential Oils are too expensive!”

This is something I hear often. However, they really aren’t if you get quality essential oils. Let me explain..

Essential oils are potent and very concentrated, therefore you usually only need a drop or two at a time! However, if you are using cheap essential oils from the health food store, you will end up using way more at a time so it will not last you very long. The reason is the cheaper essential oils are diluted, cut, or altered in a way that they are not as potent as pure essential oil. So even though you are only spending $8 for that bottle of lavender, you will go through it much faster and it will be less effective.

Young Living Essential Oils are the only oils I trust to use on, in and around my family because I know there is nothing in my bottle of essential oil but the oil itself! The reason is because of Seed to Seal, a proprietary process to assure quality. You can read more about that at

Young Living Essential oil comes in either a 5ml or 15ml bottles. The 5ml bottle typically has about 80 drops in it; the 15ml about 250! Using only a drop or two at a time, that bottle will last you a while, especially since essential oils do not expire! True, unaltered essential oils do not go rancid (except for the citrus ones) ever! They will still be just as potent in 20 years as they are today. If there is an expiration date on one you find at the health food store or anywhere else, then that is a sure sign it is not pure (no matter what the bottle says since the FDA does not regulate it other than for perfume use meaning it only has to have 5% of the essential oil in that bottle to use that word). The only reason it would go bad is if there is a fatty oil in it that will go rancid.

Still not sure about the cost and afraid to even look at the prices? Let me show you a list of some of the essential oils from Young Living that are under $20! There are many of my favorites on this list!  These are wholesale pricing available to members of Young Living.
