Vitality essential oils are an exclusive line of essential oils, provided by Young Living.
What are Vitality Essential Oils
Vitality Essential Oils are essential oils created by Young Living, and labeled for internal use.
These oils were created to comply with the FDA’s rules and regulations pertaining to supplements that states a supplement cannot be labeled for topical, aromatic, AND internal consumption use on the same label.
Young Living as a company, and all their Brand Partners, share info about using essential oils in a manner that is legal in the eyes of the FDA. This means, when Brand Partners and Young Living talk about food recipes, drink recipes, and DIY supplements, they mention using vitality essential oils instead of regular branded essential oils.
This is a good thing because the Vitality labels help our customers easily understand which oils may be used in their recipes. It reduces the confusion of which ones they can ingest, if they choose to do so.
** PLEASE NOTE ** Don’t be fooled by clever marketing. Not all essential oils are created equally. Make sure you’re not wasting your money on fake essential oils, or oils diluted in questionable solvents. Don’t miss our guide on how to find quality essential oils to make sure you’re not wasting your money on brands that legally carry out questionable or unethical practices and mislead you through deceitful marketing practices.

Frequently Asked questions about Vitality Essential Oils
Why does young Living have Vitality Essential Oils?
In 2015 the FDA placed pressure on the essential oil industry to alter how their marketing is done. Essential oils are considered to be supplements in the eyes of the FDA. The FDA specifically states that a supplement that is labeled for aromatic or topical use may NOT also be labeled or marketed for being used orally too. Meaning – if your oils are labeled for aromatic or topical use, you legally can not market them for ingesting. This includes sharing info about essential oils being used in food or drink recipes.
Because of this legal clarification, Young Living developed the Vitality Essential Oil Brand. Vitality Essential Oils make it easy to understand which oils are safe for consumption, whether you’re making your own supplements with them or adding them in your food or beverage recipes.
What is the difference between Vitality Essential Oils and regular essential oils?
The difference is: The Label. With one exception – cinnamon.
As mentioned above, the Vitality label was created by Young Living to comply with FDA laws pertaining to labeling and marketing of supplements.
ALL of Young Living’s essential oils with the exception of cinnamon are the exact same essential oil, regardless what label is on it. Cinnamon is different, so if you’re going to be using cinnamon essential oils in any of your culinary creations (we have a few ideas here), make sure you absolutely use the Cinnamon Vitality Essential Oil labeled bottle.

Where do you buy Vitality Essential Oils
Vitality Essential Oils are exclusive to Young Living Essential Oils.
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach.
Warning: DO NOT purchase your oils through Amazon or similar websites!
Any website that allows anyone to sell on, such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart… etc… are terrible places to purchase essential oils. While you may get a “good deal,” knowing who you’re purchasing from is difficult. There are many counterfeit essential oils being sold that are causing health ailments, major skin reactions, and a lot of misery. These are NOT high quality essential oils. They are fakes being sold purely for profit.
I also do NOT recommend purchasing from grocery stores, Walmart, Target, department stores, or drug stores. Many of the brands found at those stores have been proven to not actually contain any essential oil (which is perfectly legal to do).
I STRONGLY suggest you know the company that makes your oils, how the plants are cared for, what they do for distilling, how and how many times each batch is tested (and when), and their bottling processes. Many companies throw out fancy language for marketing purposes, but actually have no clue how their oils are made because the oils come from a broker (which are almost always diluted in solvents). Transparency is key.
I highly encourage you to check out our How To Find Quality Essential Oils post for in-depth information about why quality matters, and what to look for.
Where we purchase our essential oils, and why
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach. This company has proven to me time and time again to be the closest thing out there to buying from your local farmer. They are totally transparent in their processes, and even open their farms so you can see for yourself (or involve yourself in the process).
