Introducing Young Living's Vitality Dietary Essential Oils

Have you heard about this new line that was introduced on January 18th? While these oils are the same time-tested and beloved oils most of us are using, they are now considered "vitality" oils.


Perfect for adding flavor to your favorite foods or using as dietary supplements, the Vitality dietary essential oil line gives you the freedom to share and explore some of our best-loved essential oils in a variety of nutritious and delicious ways.

With four distinct categories—Herb, Spice, Citrus, and Supplement—we invite you to explore Vitality dietary essential oils

Carrier Oil 101

Getting to Know Your Carrier Oils

Carrier oils are usually overlooked because they don’t contain the therapeutic constituents of other essential oils, but they can play an indispensable companion of topically applied oils. Let’s take a closer look at these carriers and why they deserve a place on the shelf of anyone who uses and loves essential oils.

What are carrier oils?

Carrier oils are naturally derived from vegetarian sources and have a neutral smell. They aren’t volatile like essential oils, which makes them an excellent medium for dilution and application.

What aren’t carrier oils?

Vegetable shortening, butter, and margarine are best left in the kitchen—they’re not intended for topical use. Mineral oil and other petroleum derivatives like petroleum jelly should also not be used as carrier oils.

How are carrier oils used?

Essential oils are volatile, which means they evaporate rapidly and contain the natural smell and characteristics of the plant. This can make them too strong to apply undiluted. Carrier oils do not evaporate or have a strong aroma, making them the perfect pair for diluting especially strong essential oils—reducing the concentration of the essential oil without altering its therapeutic qualities. When you dilute an essential oil with a carrier oil, you can also control its concentration before applying.

Like other substances that are high in fat, carrier oils have a limited shelf life, meaning that eventually they can go bad. Depending on the type, oils with a short shelf life should typically be used within six months, while oils with a longer shelf life may stay good for up to a year. It’s important to store oils in their original air-tight containers in a cool, dark place, such as the pantry, to maximize shelf life.

Carrier oils can vary widely in their consistency, absorption, aroma, shelf life, and other characteristics. Carrier oils can be blended to change or combine their properties, so you can mix and match until you find the blend that’s just right for you!

Lori Davis, Member #2289245

Hello! I am a wife and mother of two very busy little girls, 25 months apart. I teach third grade in Waynesboro, Virginia. I began my journey with essential oils in order to help support my youngest daughter's digestive system. Sitting down with a dear friend to learn about the oils in the starter kit is in my top five best life decisions EVER. Our family is blessed beyond belief to have access to these 100% pure, therapeutic grade oils. Their benefits far exceed just the realm of ailments. Since purchasing my first start kit, Young Living essential oils are a vital part of my mommy "toolkit" and I couldn't be happier. I know exactly what is inside the oils I am using to help my family. I love this company, I love this team and I absolutely adore these oils.
