All essential oils from Young Living are of therapeutic-grade quality.  These oils have life-enhancing properties, are highly concentrated, volatile, and bring aromatic pure essences of plants from all over the world.  Essential oils have been revered for centuries for their restorative properties to body, mind, and spirit.  Each drop of a therapeutic essential oil contains hundreds of organic constituents and other natural elements that work on many levels with all living beings.  They are 75 to 100 times more concentrated than dried herbs.



  1. Grade A ~ pure therapeutic quality and made from organically grown plants, distilled at correct temperature, time, pressure and harvested at proper season.
  2. Grade B ~ food grade, probably contain synthetics, pesticide, fertilizers, extenders, or carrier oils.
  3. Grade C ~ perfume grade, probably contain same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils.  Usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil per harvest.
  4. Floral Water ~ a byproduct of the distillation process and is very high quality IF it comes from Grade A distillation process.

Synthetic fragrance oils may duplicate the “signature” aroma of a pure botanical, but the complex chemical components of each therapeutic-grade essential oil are missing.  Synthetic fragrance oils will not have medicinal or therapeutic properties and are NOT suitable for healing (aromatherapy).  Quality Grade A therapeutic essential oils are inhaled, ingested, and topically applied for deep cleansing, nourishing, rejuvenating and balancing.

Blood-Brain Barrier

Dr. David Stewart shares the following:

{Thank you David for being a great teacher}

A question has come up regarding the so called Blood-Brain Barrier and the
use of essential oils.  It would be more accurate to consider it a sieve or
filter through which only molecules of a certain size or smaller can
penetrate.  Most of the molecules of the substances used in chemotherapy are
too large to pass through the Blood-Brain Filter which is why doctors say
that chemo doesn't work on brain cancer.  Some of the molecules get
through, but not the whole suite of drugs intended.
When it comes to essential oils, small molecules are what they are made of.
That is why they are aromatic.  The only way something can be aromatic is
 for the molecules to be so small that they readily leap from the surface of
the substance and circulate in the air so they can enter our noses and be
detected as odor and smell.  That is why massage oils (fatty oils) such as
corn, peanut, safflower, walnut, almond, olive, and other oils pressed from
seeds are not aromatic.  Sure, they have a smell, but you can't smell them
across the room in minutes (or seconds) as you can when one opens a bottle
of peppermint or other essential oil.
Back to the so called Blood Brain Barrier:  Essential oils are mixtures of
dozens, even hundreds, of constituents all of which are primarily composed
of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen.  The molecules of Essential oils are all
 very tiny and most of which can pass through the Blood Brain Barrier. All
essential oils are principally composed of a class of organic compounds
built of "isoprene units," where each unit is a set of five connected carbon
atoms with some hydrogens attached.  Molecules built of isoprene units are
all classified as "terpenes."  Terpenes are what make essential oils unique
 in the world of oily substances.
Terpenes with molecules containing only one isoprene unit are called
Phenylpropanoids and are found in Clove (90%), Basil (75%), Cinnamon (73%)
and to a lesser extent in most other essential oils. Among other functions,
Phenylpropanoids cleanse receptor sites.
Monoterpenes (substances containing two isoprene units or ten carbons atoms
per molecule).  Monoterpens are found in most essential oils, but especially
in Spruce (38%), Valerian (34%), and Juniper (14%) as well as Cistus, Fir and
Pine.  Among other functions, Monoterpenes reprogram the DNA at a cellular
level which is why healings via essential oils are often permanent, i.e. the

miswritten codes in the cells has been corrected.

Sesquiterpenes (substances containing three isoprene units or fifteen
 carbon atoms per molecule) are principally found in Cedarwood (98%), Vetiver
(97%),Sandalwood (90%), Black Pepper (74%), Patchouli (71%), Myrrh (62%),
Ginger(59%), as well as Vitex, German Chamomile, Spikenard, Galbanum,
andFrankincense (8%). Sesquiterpenes deprogram miswritten codes in the DNA.
There are also Diterpens (substances containing four isoprene units or
twenty carbon atoms per molecule), as well as Triterpens and Tetraterpens
containing thirty and forty carbons per molecule each respectively.
All of the Terpen family of molecules are small enough to penetrate the
blood brain barrier.  Sesquiterpene molecules have the capability of
 carrying oxygen, like hemoglobin does in the blood.  Hence they are
oxygenating to human tissue and are especially effective in fighting cancer
cells which cannot tolerate oxygen.
However, the combination (triple punch) of Phenylpropanoids, Sesqueterpenes,
and Monoterpens is especially healing with cancers and every other type of
illness.  That's because with this combination you:  (1) first, you clean the
receptor sites allowing proper transfer of hormones and proper information
between cells; (2) second, you deprogram or erase the wrong information from
cells stored in the MRNA and DNA; and (3) third, you reprogram the cells with
the correct information so they can function properly and effect a permanent
healing.  To one extent or another, most essential oils contain some of all
three of these three types of terpens which is the secret to their healing
power.  So there you have it in a nutshell: The Blood-Brain Barrier and the
chemistry of how Essential Oils Work to bring about healing.

The information expressed above is from what I have learned from Dr. Gary
Young in his Level I and Level II seminars as well as the EDR, Gary's other
writings and tapes as well as other Organic Chemistry texts I have studied.


  A missing link in modern health philosophies!

Essential Oils are aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds.  The chemistry of essential oils is very complex: each one may consist of hundreds of different and unique chemical compounds. Moreover, essential oils are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs.  The distillation process is what makes essential oils so concentrated. It often requires many pounds of plant material to produce a single drop of distilled essential oil. It takes 5000lbs. of rose petals to distill one pound of rose essential oil!

 Essential oils contain oxygenating molecules which transport the nutrients to the cells of the body.  Without oxygen, nutrients cannot be assimilated, leaving us nutritionally depleted. Clinical research shows that therapeutic essential oils may help create an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc. cannot live.

Science is only now rediscovering these healing substances that were used in ancient and biblical times.  Young Living's mission is to bring back the ancient knowledge of the elements that were given to us at the time of creation for the healing, sustaining, and protection of mankind.

Their magnificent fragrances balance moods, alleviate depression, and liberate negative emotions.  Essential oils are used to stimulate the regeneration of tissue and, nerves, as well as increasing cellular oxygen and giving support to the immune system.

Essential oils and human blood share several common properties: They fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds, and initiate regeneration.  Working as the chemical defense mechanism of the plant, essential oils possess potent antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.  They have a chemical structure that is similar to that found in human cells and tissues.  This makes essential oils compatible with human protein and enables them to be readily identified and accepted by the body.

Because of their small molecular size, essential oils have a unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the body and tissues very quickly,  whether inhaled, applied topically or ingested.  

Essential Oils can impact our health on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.

What Benefits Do PURE, THERAPEUTIC-GRADE Essential Oils Provide?


  1. Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants.
  2. Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin.
  3. Essential oils are lipid soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they have hardened because of an oxygen deficiency.  In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and are then metabolized like other nutrients.
  4. Essential oils contain oxygen molecules which help to transport nutrients to the starving human cells.  Because a nutritional deficiency is an oxygen deficiency, disease begins when the cells lack the oxygen for proper nutrient assimilation.  By providing the needed oxygen, essential oils also work to stimulate the immune system.
  5. Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants.  Antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals.  They prevent all mutations, work as free radical scavengers, prevent fungus, and prevent oxidation in the cells.
  6. Essential oils are anti-bacterial, anti-cancerous, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-microbial, anti-tumoral, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, and antiseptic.  Essential oils have been shown to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring balance to the body.
  7. Essential oils may detoxify the cells and blood in the body.
  8. Essential oils containing sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood brain barrier, enabling them to be effective in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis.
  9. Essential oils are aromatic.  When diffused, they provide air purification by:

A.  Removing metallic particles and toxins from the air;

B.  Increasing atmospheric oxygen;

C.  Increasing ozone and negative ions in the area, which inhibits bacterial growth;

D.  Destroying odors from mold, cigarettes, and animals; and

E.  Filling the air with a fresh, aromatic scent

  1. Essential oils help promote emotional, physical, and spiritual healing.
  2. Essential oils have a bio-electrical frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs, food, and even the human body.  Clinical research has shown that essential oils can quickly raise the frequency of the human body, restoring it to its normal, healthy level.

How Do Essential Oils Work?


”Aromatherapy is a phrase coined by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, Ph.D., in 1920, who was a French

cosmetic chemist. While working in his laboratory, he had an accident that resulted in a third degree

thermal burn of his hand and forearm. He plunged his arm into a vat of lavender oil, thinking that

it was water. To his surprise, the burning slowly decreased and then stopped within a few moments.

Over a period of time, with the continual application of lavender oil, the burn healed completely

without a trace of a scar. As a chemist, he analyzed the essential oil of lavender and discovered

that it contained many substances referred to as chemical constituents or chemical properties.

As a result of this, Dr. Gattefosse determined that essential oils contained tremendous healing properties.


Dr. Gattefosse shared his experience with his colleague and friend, Dr. Jean Valnet, a medical doctor

in Paris, France. During World War II, while serving as a medical physician in the French Army at the

China Wall, treating war victims, Dr. Valnet ran out of antibiotics, so he decided to try using essential

oils. To his amazement, they had a powerful effect in reducing and even stopping the infection, and he

was able to save many of the soldiers who otherwise might have died even with antibiotics.


Dr. Valnet had two students who did their internship with him who were responsible for expanding his

work, Dr. Paul Belaiche and Dr. Jean Claude Lapraz. They discovered that essential oils contain antiviral,                  antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties as well as being powerful oxygenators with the

ability to act as carrying agents in the delivery of nutrients into the cells.


For example, if you take a geranium plant and tear the leaf or the stem, a clear liquid will appear.

This liquid is a very subtle and volatile essence that exudes from the damaged tissues of the leaf.

So it is with the human body. With a cut or scrape, we see the flow of blood from that opening in the skin.

One significant difference between the blood and the plant liquid is the color. In the resin or oil being

released from the plant, we find trace elements of nutrients, hormones, enzymes, vitamins, minerals,

antibodies, and antifungal, antibacterial, anti-infectious, antiseptic, and immune-stimulating properties.

Another key agent found present in that resin is OXYGEN. Oxygen molecules are part of the chemical

elements of the resin, such as alcohols, phenols, esters, sesquiterpenes, terpinols, etc., which together

create an essential oil.

The plant releases the oil in order to clean the break, kill bacteria and start the regeneration process.

When blood is released because of broken skin, it is for the same purpose: to clean the wound, kill

the bacteria, prevent infection, and begin the healing and regeneration process. A simple comparison

of the plant and the human body shows us a precise similarity, as both the oil and the blood are the

transporters of the fundamental nutrients necessary to feed and nurture the cells.


Furthermore, the essential oil has the ability in its chemical structure to penetrate the cell wall

and transport oxygen and nutrients inside the cell, thus increasing cellular oxygen and giving more

support to the immune system. Research has shown that with their immune-stimulating properties,

essential oils enhance and support the building of the immune system, whether they are inhaled or

rubbed on the body topically. Even those who contract a cold or the flu recover 70 percent faster using

essential oils.


It has been said that when essential oils are diffused in the home, they have the ability to increase the

atmospheric oxygen, as they release oxygenating molecules into the atmosphere. Oils increase ozone

and negative ions in the home, which inhibit bacteria growth. This prevents and destroys existing odors

from mold, cigarettes, animals, etc. Essential oils have the electrical magnetic attraction to fracture the

molecular chain of chemicals and take them out of the air, rendering them non-toxic to the body.

Scientists in European countries have found that essential oils will bond to metallics and chemicals and

carry them out of the body, working as natural chelators, inhibiting these toxic substances from staying

in the tissues. Essential oils remove dust particles out of the air and, when diffused in the home, can

be the greatest air filtration system. These are all wonderful attributes of essential oils.


Essential oils can be extracted from plants, trees, seeds, flowers, petals, stems, roots, bark, or even the

whole plant. Today, about 200 different types of oils are being distilled with several thousand chemical

constituents and aromatic molecules that have been identified and registered. These aromatic Substances

and compounds within the oils will alter and change based on weather conditions, climate, temperatures,

and distillation factors. Today, 98 percent of essential oils are used in the perfume and cosmetic industry.

In 1991, only ½ percent was used for Aromatherapy. In 1993, 2 ½ percent were produced for Aromatherapy or for therapeutic and medicinal application. Essential oils are recognized as being the greatest substances for increasing cellular oxygen through their normal function. When applied to the body by rubbing on the feet, essential oils will travel throughout the body and affect every cell, including the hair, within 20 minutes. They may have a lasting effect for as long as five months from only one application. The oils do not build up and store in the body because they are very subtle and volatile and have a high evaporation rate. Because of their chemical structure, they are metabolized like other nutrients in the cells. One of the causes of disease in both the plant and the human body is the inability of nutrients to penetrate the cell wall, causing cell deterioration, leading to cell mutation, creating a host for bacteria and disease.


The integral part of the nose responsible for odor detection is the olfactory, consisting of two membranes,

one on each side of the mucous membrane covering the bony extension of the nose. The olfactory membranes are very tiny and are well protected by the casing of the nose. They contain about 800 million nerve endings for processing and detecting odors. These nerve endings are triggered from a signal from the genes along the inside passage of the nose. The olfactory hair-like nerves receive the micro-fine, vaporized oil particles, carrying them along the axon of the nerve fibers, connecting them with the synapse of the secondary neurons in the olfactory bulb. The impulses carried to the limbic system and the olfactory sensory center at the base of the brain, pass between the pituitary and pineal gland and then to the amygdala, which is the memory center for fear and trauma. The impulses then travel to the gustatory center where the sensation of taste is perceived.


Only in 1989 was it discovered that the amygdala plays a major role in storing and releasing emotional trauma, and only odor or fragrance stimulation has a profound effect in triggering a response with this gland. Dr. Joseph Ledoux, of the New York Medical University, feels that this could be major break-through in releasing emotional trauma.


People who have turbinate problems, such as a deviated septum, polyps, or who have had nose surgery, may have a very difficult or impossible time detecting the complete odor. The same holds true for people who have worn a lot of make-up, perfume and cologne or used hair sprays, hair colorings, perms and other products with synthetic odors. Many olfactory hairs respond to only one kind of odor molecule, and simultaneously others will respond to several different kinds of odors. This tells us that not all of the receptors are stimulated at the same time in the presence of odorous vapors.


The olfactory nerves are very much like other nerves and organs in the body. They also respond to electrical signals and impulses that form coded messages that are dispatched to various areas of the body. This may be why some oil inhalation will increase endorphin, neurotransmitter and antibody production.

Fragrance is one of man’s greatest enjoyments, bringing back memories of past experience and creating a

feeling of security, grounding and well-being.”
