Anybody ever heard of this company? Or used their products?
Anyone know where I can compare essential oil companies and products?

Yes, I use these products. The ingredients are so 'pure' (for a lack of better words) that they could be consumed. Whereas other brands have additional chemicals and cannot be ingested. The EO's are quite strong and last a long time. Which is good, because their oils are a bit pricey. Aside from aromatherapy with the oils, I put a few drops of 'Abundance' oil in the interior paint before painting bedrooms in my house. (Just a tip that I learned from someone else.) Good luck with your search...

Thanks MelissaW, I have been to their website and find no information without "signing up" and since it is an MLM I am not interested in doing that until I know more.
I have a little pamphlet that has a 2 page list of herbs that are in oil form. There is nothing labeled "Abundance" or for specific maladies.
My son is being sent by the school district to a special alternative school. They wanted me to sign a release giving them permission to treat him with these oils if need be. I find it highly unlikely that a public school district would be using these. (I am very suspicious about possible experimentation being done on vulnerable populations in truth.) When I asked the intake interviewer about these oils and how did they get to use them - he just said that because they are an alternate school they get to choose alternate therapies. If the Youngs Oils are really what they dose the students with that would be great but I have some trust issues with governmental organizations . . . .

I will email you tomorrow. Right now I'm in bed:D I'll see if I can obtain more info from their site since I'm a distributor. The only reason I'm a distrubutor is to save a buck or too since I have quite a bit of their oils.
Its mind blowing to me that a public/alternative school would use the oils on the kids ~in a good way.
You may ask if the oils will be used for aromatherapy by simply inhaling or applied 'neat' (which is directly on the skin and NOT diluted). If applied directly to the skin you may ask if your child has a (skin) reaction to the oils what precautions do they take. They would dilute the area... but as a mother would still need to be informed. And any citrus oils (lemon, grapefruit) applied neatly would give your child a sensativity to the sun. Those are the only two risks that I can think of when using oils. Oh... if your child is alergeric to anything you should make them aware of this. You would be very surprised with how many oils are on the market.

Yes, it is blowing my mind so much that the negative suspicious thinking kicked in. I just told my son to not let them do anything to him without talking to me first end of story. Look forward to reading you!
