Comparing Dried Herbs to Priceless Oils

OK, let's do some comparisons to give you a better understanding of the value of what you'll be getting…

Lavender flowers vs. Young Living's Lavender therapeutic grade essential oil

According to a quote that we read from The Lavender Garden by Robert Kourik, it takes an average of 10 lbs of lavender flowers to make 1 oz of extracted essential oil. That's $42 (wholesale) for 1 oz of the therapeutic-grade essential oil vs. over $100 for the flowers for you to make an extraction yourself – and you don't even get to test it for quality!

Cinnamon bark vs. Young Living's Cinnamon therapeutic grade essential oil

It takes about 1300 lbs of cinnamon bark to make 5 oz of essential oil. If my calculations are correct, this means that it would take just under 140 oz to equal 1 ml of essential oil, or just under 7 oz for 1 drop. If that is true, then using 2 drops would be equal to almost a pound of herb! A quick internet check gave me $10/lb. Compare that to 20 cents a drop for our essential oil, and the price tag doesn't seem so expensive after all!

Lemon peel vs. Young Living's Lemon therapeutic grade essential oil

According to what we've read on-line, it takes roughly 1500 lemon peels to produce 1 lb of oil (about 500 ml) – that's about $300 (wholesale). If ½ tsp of dried lemon peel equals 1 lemon, then it would take 15 ½ pounds of dried lemon peel to equal 1500 lemons.

Now, that means that Lemon oil shockingly costs about twice as much as dried lemon peel. However, the dried peel contains only about 2% of volatile oil, which is why, when you open a bottle of lemon peel, you are greeted with only a faint lemony scent. But, when you open a bottle of therapeutic grade lemon essential oil… it is like cutting into a fresh, perfectly ripe lemon…. A wonderful aroma. Plus, our lemon essential oil is 68% of naturally occuring d-limonene. It would take a whole lot of dried lemon peel to even come close to that! You can easily see why essential oils were once referred to as precious oils!

Now, you could probably buy over-the-counter drugs for many of the essential oil uses that we've gone over for less, but… do they uplift your spirits? Give you more energy? Clear your head of that “brain cloud”? Make you feel alive? Now that… that is priceless.

Now, let me tell you a little about what each essential oil can do for you before we go on…

LavenderLavender is considered the most versatile of all essential oils. Therapeutic-grade lavender has been highly regarded for the skin. Lavender has been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects. It may be used to cleanse cuts, to ease bruises, blisters, and other skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing – both physically and emotionally.

PeppermintPeppermint is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion and dispelling nausea. Peppermint also improves concentration and mental accuracy – so inhale peppermint before a test, or a long drive. It is a wonderful flavoring in dishes and water. I've also found it useful for reducing tension, sore joints, aching muscles, and tired feet. Oh, there's nothing like a foot rub with Peppermint after a long hike!

Lemon. Ah, Lemon. This is a wonderful treasure! Lemon essential oil contains naturally occuring d-limonene, a constituent that is extremely safe and is often used in institutional and household cleaning supplies in place of more caustic ingredients.

lemonIn the body, d-limonene is found to possess a cleansing property of sorts. Clinical studies show that d-limonene induces the body to increase the production of certain enzymes that help break down specific toxins. This substance also increases the body's ability to break down old and worn out cells, preventing them from lingering in the body and becoming toxic. It also assists the body's ability to keep mutated cells from replicating and spreading throughout the body. You can do an internet search for yourself for more information.

Lemon oil is a wonderful air freshener, and can be used for flavoring in water and food. Many people have found Lemon to be a wonderful cleansing agent too – removing gum, adhesive, super glue, grease, and many stains. Mixing with baking powder makes for a natural scouring powder.

Copaiba is an incredible essential oil that continues the tradition of South American essential oils being supplied by Young Living.

Want to understand the highlights of this powerful essential oil? Submerged in the heart of the Brazilian rain forest, the copaiba tree is harvested by “tapping” the heartwood similar to how rubber and maple are tapped. The resin is gathered and then steam distilled, a technique that gently extracts the pure essential oil.

Copaiba has traditionally been used in native teas to aid in soothing digestive discomforts. It also has assisted regulate people's natural immune response. * It's no wonder why copaiba is so successful. Copaiba essential oil contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene: 55 percent. This is the highest of any known essential oil!

You'll be hard-pressed to find genuine copaiba essential oil anywhere in the United States. It's true, other companies sell copaiba “oil” that contains the complete resin or is a distilled form of the leaf. These products don't contain the high amounts of beta caryophyllene that is in the Young Living Therapeutic Grade copaiba essential oil.

frankincenseFrankincense is considered a holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It is considered useful for visualizing, improving one's spiritual connection and centering. It has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair.

More recently, it has been used therapeutically in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research I personally use it, along with Lavender, when suffering from head discomfort. It doesn't take long before the tension eases, and I'm relaxed enough to sleep.

Thieves is a stimulating blend thieves cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics. This blend was tested at Weber State University and was shown to be over 90% percent effective against airborne bacteria. My husband likes to use it when he feels like he may be getting congested. I place a few drops in a cup of soymilk for him to drink, and a few more drops on his chest. This allows him to breath easier for a while – allowing him to sleep.

R.C. has three varieties of Eucalyptus and is comforting when applied to the chest and throat.

PanAwayPanAway is a special blend created following an injury in the company president's leg. It is wonderful for alleviating random discomfort in joints and muscles.

DiGize is unique blend contains Ginger, Anise, Fennel, Peppermint, Tarragon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, and Juniper essential oils – most of which have traditionally been used to support the digestive system. DiGize contains naturally occurring constituents like menthol, citrol, and zingiberen.

Purification is another wonderful blend, and one that I hope to never be without again! It contains citronella… and Purificationwe all know how effective citronella is as an insect repellant! This blend works well for that, but it is also quite effective at removing the swelling and itch from bug bites. Since we spend a lot of time outdoors, I use a lot of Purification! Diffused, it is a wonderful air freshener that neutralizes foul odors such as stale smoke, pet odors, mildew, bathroom smells, and such. I like to place a few drops on a cotton ball and place it in front of the air vent in motels to freshen the room a bit.
