Formerly known as Idaho Balsam Fir, this Young Living fan favorite is back with a new name: Idaho Grand Fir! The oil, aroma, and benefits are unchanged, offering a woodsy, refreshing aroma reminiscent of a freshly cut Christmas tree. Grand fir trees are native to the Pacific Northwest of the United States, and for centuries Native Americans have used them to promote well-being and the sensation of deeper breathing. Young Living’s Idaho Grand Fir comes from the Young Living Highland Flats Tree Farm and Distillery in Naples, Idaho, USA. Every year Young Living members participate in the annual Winter Harvest, allowing them to experience our Seed to Seal® quality commitment firsthand and be a part of distilling this oil directly from nature.
Are All Essential Oils Created Equally?
When first starting out on your essential oil journey, it's easy to be swayed by low-cost essential oils available in the drug store. But not all essential oils are created equally.
Essential oils range in price depending on the type of oil. The reason for the varying prices is because essential oils are botanicals, which means they are distilled from plants. Young Living essential oils are guaranteed to be high-quality and pure essential oils because Young Living knows that they need to be the best to get essential oils' true benefits.
That's why Sha-Faun Enterprises trusts Young Living Essential Oils.
Buy Nice, Not Twice
When shopping for essential oils, there are a few things to watch for to make sure you are getting a high-quality product. One thing to keep in mind when you look at the price tag of a bottle of your favorite essential oil is that you only use a few drops of essential oils at a time. Your one or two-ounce bottle will last you a very long time.
Essential oil prices vary because the cost of producing the plants varies.
Some plants such as lavender and peppermint are much easier and less expensive to grow. In contrast, other plants, such as the Boswellia tree where we get Frankincense essential oil, are more difficult and costlier to produce.
When shopping for essential oils, look for:
100% Pure: Some companies cut costs and cut corners by blending cheaper ingredients into their essential oils. If your bottle doesn't say 100% pure, it's filled with things to dilute the oil such as carrier oils and fragrance oils.
Scientific Names of Plants: The Latin or botanical names for the plants should be front and center on your essential oil’s ingredients list. The botanical names can help you confirm you are using the correct essential oil and trust the company you are buying the oils from. While it's standard practice to refer to essential oils by their common name, their scientific or Latin name should appear at least in the ingredients list, if not in a few places on the label.
Here are a few examples of common names and Latin names:
Check the Ingredients for Carrier Oils: Sometimes, companies make essential oils more affordable by blending them with carrier oils. Pre-blended oils come in the same bottles as pure essential oils, so they can be easy to miss. Essential oils pre-mixed with carrier oils are problematic if you're looking to make your own blends or use these oils in your diffuser. They won't be as potent.
Pre-blending essential oils with carrier oils is a popular practice with the more expensive essential oils such as Rose, Melissa, and Neroli essential oils. Floral oils can take anywhere from 20-30 pounds of flower petals to distill just 5ml of essential oil.
Buying Young Living Essential Oils:
One of the many reasons Sha-Faun Enterprises trusts Young Living essential oils is their transparency with their ingredients. With Young Living, you get the Seed to Seal Quality Commitment.
