The Best Smelling Day Of The Year Hands Down – 11 July Is International Essential Oils Day

Essential oil lovers around the world unite, the 11 July is International Essential Oils day – a day to recognise the powerful impact essential oils has on our well being.

Essential oils are quickly gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility, from naturally-derived products that we use in our homes to food supplements we use to support our health, but their use is not new. The use of botanicals is a long-standing practice throughout human history. In fact, essential oils, and other botanicals, have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties dating back to more than 5,000 years ago.

Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature’s pure essence.

Young Living, the world leader in essential oils,  has rounded up its favourite picks of its products for you to celebrate this special day.
