Carrie Raab Interview – Part Two – Cooking with Essential Oils
Did you enjoy learning a little more about Carrie Raab and her experience with essential oils in the last interview? I did.
Today she answers a few more questions for us, including how Young Living essential oils and are different and why she cooks with them!
I notice you cook with essential oils, can you tells us a little about how and why you do that?
Here’s an article I wrote that helps share why essential oils are better than fresh/dried herbs and why you should use them:
Being concentrated, the essential oils contain virtually all of the plants healing nutrients, oxygenating molecules, amino acid precursors, coenzyme A factors, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins, hormones and more. And because they are concentrated, Essential Oils are from 50 to 70 times more therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they are derived from.
Unlike dried herbs, which lose up to 90% of their healing nutrients and oxygen molecules, essential oils do not. Best of all, 100% pure, therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils are freely available and safe for cooking and home use. They are not considered medicine by our governments regulatory agencies, but best fall under the food category.
Essential oils have a chemical structure that is similar to human cells and tissues. This makes essential oils compatible with human protein and enables them to be readily identified and accepted by the body. So let’s start using essential oils in our cooking for you and your family’s vigor and strength!
Again… people must know they can’t get any essential oil and cook with it! Read your labels! Does your lavender, or peppermint or ginger oil say, not for internal use? If so… THROW IT AWAY! It is NOT pure! You have a fragrant oil.
**** The FDA only requires 2-3% of the essential oil to be PURE for the bottle to be labeled “pure 100%” The other 97% is filled with fillers, chemicals, toxins… the buyer does NOT know this! This is what needs to be shared!
PURE essential oils are costly! You can not buy a pure lavender oil for $8-10 dollars! It is not the finest, purest form of lavender. It is more in the lavendin family… do your homework, do your research!
I have several “oil” friends who have been using essential oils for years, they were very hesitant to ‘switch’ to Young Living. They also didn’t like the price. . .they were comfortable with paying for cheaper oils. Not until you try, smell, and use Young Living oils will you truly KNOW the difference!
Your life is worth it! You can not put a price, dollar amount on your health! If people gave up their coffee at Starbucks, or their daily coke habit, or stopped buying zyrtec at $30 a bottle… they could use that money to buy what their bodies really NEED and WANT!
What makes Young Living Essential Oils different to other essential oils?
