Young Living essential oils are very concentrated. Unlike other brands of oils Young Living’s have no solvents, chemicals, or additives and are only distilled one time (think of a tea bag being used more than once, it gets weaker). A drop goes a long way! And your oils can last a long time. A 5ml bottle has approximately 85 drops, while a 15ml has approximately 250 drops. The kit comes with all 5ml bottles. It’s a nice feature because you can quickly see what you are using more of and what you are using less of, and know what to reorder. When you reorder many of the oils come in the 15ml size only, some come in 5ml, and some come in both sizes. An application is about 2 drops, so you have over 40 applications of each oil in the small bottle alone! If you place them in a roller you have even more!
The price of each oil is not based on popularity or what it can do, but on how hard it is to harvest, including how much a crop can yield.
60 thousand rose blossoms can make only one ounce of oil
220 pounds of lavender produces 7 pounds of oil
Jasmine is picked by hand before sun comes out on the very first day they open
Sandalwood cannot be harvested until the tree is 30 years old and 30 feet high
