Essential Oils 101


Essential oils are volatile fluid of a plant that contain aromatic compounds used by the plant to bring oxygen and nutrients, while removing harmful toxins.  They also act as plant hormones to restore and maintain the plant’s normal function, helping the plant to fight off unwanted and harmful pests and toxins.  The good new is—they do the same for humans.  They are adaptogenic molecules, meaning that they adapt to bring balance and restoration to the body by acting as messengers to help coordinate and maintain vital body function.

Essential Oils have protective properties which are the plants natural defense mechanism that work the same in us and therefore have medicinal properties. They penetrate cell membranes and can diffuse throughout our blood and tissues.  These particles are one of the few things small enough to cross the blood brain barrier.

Essential oils are multi-dimensional, filled with homeostatic intelligence to restore the body to a state of healthy balance. When body conditions change, oils adapt,  stimulating or repressing enzyme activity as needed, energizing or relaxing as needed, and giving our bodies the compounds it needs to stay well.  Essential oils have the intelligence of a Creator who loves us and who created the plants and trees and shrubs we need, not only for food but also for cleansing and protection.


Essential oil molecules send information to cells and cleanse receptor sites so that they bring your body back to natural function. Oils are balancing to the body. Oils address the causes of disease at a cellular level by deleting misinformation and reprogramming correct information so that cells function properly and in harmony with one another.  Because essential oils properly applied always work toward the restoration of proper bodily function, they do not cause undesirable side effects. They are feeding the body with what it needs to heal itself.

One of the most powerful properties of essential oils is that they are small enough to  cross the blood brain barrier and are able to have a wonderful, balancing effect on our emotions.  Our sense of smell in inextricably intertwined with our memory and emotions and essential oils can play an integral part in healing painful emotional experiences, which makes these oils uniquely able to heal us from the inside out because of the key role emotions can often play in illness.

The molecules that make up essential oils are so tiny that one drop can contain up to 40 million-trillion molecules.  That’s enough to cover every cell in our bodies with 400,000 tiny molecules. Because of their size they are easily absorbed through the skin and are able to communicate directly with our DNA to affect the function of our cells from its control center.  Many modern medications are based on plant-based compounds that are then synthesized in a lab and mass produced.  Essential oils are so complex that they cannot be reproduced in the finest lab in the world.  In other words, God has gifted us with plants to help heal us and we have never been able to replicate His care and design.

Modern medicine has its place and is especially good at emergent and intensive care but modern medicine is mostly about sick care.  Essential oils bridge the gap to provide incredible and life-giving wellness, keeping us happier and healthier than any synthetic alternative.

How They Are Extracted

Therapeutic grade essential oils must be careful extracted from plants grown in organic soil under the right environment so that all the right constituents are present.  They must be distilled at low pressure and low temperature using steam distillation to keep their healing properties intact.

Young Living is the world leader in essential oil distillation.

They have a revolutionary process called Seed to Seal which guarantees the purest, most potent oils possible.

Meet Corey Gates


Hello! I am so glad you are here! My name is Corey Gates and I am a pediatric nurse in Houston, Texas. I love my job! But, in typical nurse fashion, I am often taking care of everyone except myself. I have lived with an autoimmune disease since my late twenties. My health hit a low point in the spring/summer of 2014. In an effort to feel better I made some fairly radical diet changes. In the fall of that year, I came across a blog post from Dr. Edie Wadsworth. She announced that she had secretly been using Young Living products for a year! I still don’t know how she kept these products a secret for so long, but I am so thankful that she finally shared it with her blog readers! These products have completely changed my life.

Reading Edie’s blog post that day struck a chord with me. Was there really a way for me to heal my body naturally? I had nothing to lose and was certain that I did not want another prescription medication added to what I was already taking. I took the plunge and signed up for the Premium Starter Kit hoping for the best. I can honestly say that to this day I continue to be amazed at the power of these products.

We live in a society that is constantly bombarded by the media about why we need to take the next new miracle drug. But, those medications often come with serious and harmful side effects! It is so disheartening that so many people live conditioned to prefer adding more prescriptions and masking symptoms instead of addressing the root cause of the problem or finding ways to heal their bodies naturally.

My passion for using Young Living products – whether it is the oils, supplements or other products available to us – helps me take better care of myself. That passion enables me to also take better care of the people around me! I used to carry a portable version of an over the counter pharmacy in my purse. You name it, I was carrying it! A fact well known by my friends and family. I have gotten rid of that portable pharmacy and completely replaced it with oils. What I love almost as much as these oils is that the transition for my friends and family has been equally rewarding. Nothing makes me happier than being given a challenge and watching another skeptic to turn into an oily believer right before my eyes!

It’s the most powerful antioxidant drink in the world and its anti-inflammatory effects have helped me get out my OTC addiction to Motrin!)
  • 6. That’s it! Your oils will be on their way to your doorstep!




Why Should I Become A Wholesale Member?

This is the way to get your oils at 24% off retail price! Always awesome to get this discount. As you use the oils and you share your testimonials with friends and family, you have the OPTION {100% OPTIONAL!} of earning commissions when others join and purchase Young Living oils. There is NEVER any obligation to buy a certain amount or ever share YL with others. Never!! Win-win!

Is there a monthly order minimum?

No. You can just order what you need when you need it! LOVE THIS!

I just really want to use oils myself. Do I ever have to sell Young Living products?

This is fine! There is NO obligation at all to sell oils when you join as a wholesale member. However, if you ever change your mind, you can jump right in and the sky is the limit. I personally choose to just share it online or with friends who ask me about it first. It is a no-pressure kind of thing, and I will not lie… the monthly check is love.lyyyyy!

Are you sure there are no monthly order requirements?

There is NO, zilch, zero, REQUIREMENT.  To retain an active ‘wholesale member’ account, you have to place one 50PV {approx. $50} minimum order per year. If you miss that deadline, you can reactivate your account by calling Young Living Customer Care with a 100PV (point volume) order. Sometimes, as a promotion, they even waive this minimum order requirement to reactivate. But again, this is just to keep, what YL calls, “active status.”

If someone wants to join Young Living through me, what do I give them?

Just give them your member number and tell them to go to and  put your number in as “sponsor” and “enroller” and then they get also get a wholesale membership with a premium starter kit.  They will have access to the support of my Facebook groups just like you do! It’s a wonderful way to get started with Young Living!

Is there a way to save even more money? 

Yes! The Essential Rewards program offers reduced shipping, generous credit for free oils & more!  Plus each month there are great promotions for free oils when you place an Essential Rewards order. I did not do this when I started, but now I do because it works for me! Plus, I love free stuff, and I am getting plenty of it.

What is the catch?

There is none. Period. To be clear, again, I do make a commission from the company when you make your purchase. That motivates me to share, of course, but the main reason I share Young Living oils is because I love them, they work and they have blessed our family. Thank you for enrolling as a ‘wholesale member’ via my links!
