I hear you! Young Living is not CHEAP! Of course it's not cheap. When you purchase Young Living products you are NOT purchasing inexpensive fillers, toxic chemicals and dangerous ingredients. Those things ARE cheap and Young Living will have nothing to do with them.
Young Living only puts in the purest natural botanical ingredients to make the best product possible - and nothing else. Young Living scientists work for YEARS to formulate products to the utmost standards before they are released to members. Many of the products they make are highly CONCENTRATED and can be diluted to suit your family's needs and your budget. Lets have a look at a few Young Living products we can dilute.
When you are diluting, only dilute the amount you need now and store the remainder of the undiluted product until you need it. Because all Young Living products are natural and do not contain chemical preservatives, microbes in the dilution water may spoil the product if it is left to sit over a long period of time.
