Ayurveda and TCM principles all go along with Young Living essential oils. Dr HK Lin told us in September that “Essential oils are an extension of TCM. An advantage to the oils is that the product is actually tested for every component that is present.” Every single batch of essential oils from Young Living have been laboratory tested for the actual components.
With herbs, there is no testing done on what you are using. With many TCM herbs, the patient must cook the recipe for a period of time. The result can vary greatly depending upon the heat, time, even the pan used in cooking – and no one tests the result before it is consumed.
