Cynthia Kasper – Essential Oils Educator
I stopped by the new Mills Pharmacy + Apothecary for what turned out to be a very insightful hands-on class called Thieves 101 about the properties of essential oils. Leading the session was Cynthia Kasper, Cynthia is an essential oils expert who gave me a very up close and personal display and tutorial of the fascinating world of these oils and what they can do. We have all heard of oils of course, but it was intriguing to learn about the many benefits these particular oils hold, everything from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use, essential oils contain many compelling properties. Thieves; a leading brand under the Young Living scion is one of many products to choose from.
I took the opportunity to ask Cynthia some burning questions regarding essential oils.
Q. What is the difference between the Young Living essential oils and other store bought products.
A. Purity! In a word, when you purchase essential oils from the Young Living brand you can be assured that the products are pure, other products can contain solvents such as acetone or synthetically altered cheap fillers such as Jojoba oil which is used to add bulk to the oil.
Q. What are the main ways we can use essential oils.
A. The three most popular ways are by inhaling the oil nasally or with a diffuser, topically by rubbing it on the skin or internally taken orally.
Q. What are the most toxic household products used today.
A. The most toxic are dryer sheets, fabric softeners, plug in air fresheners and scented candles. These products tend to contain carcinogens that are endocrine disruptors (the endocrine is your glandular, hormonal system) which can cause hormone malfunctions in the body leading to all sorts of ailments.
Q. What are the must have essential oils everyone should own.
A. Thieves, Peppermint and Lavender, are my choices.

The parent company Young Living is one of the leading producers and innovators of essential oils distillation, predicated on the Seed + Cultivate + Distill + Test + Seal methodology. This five-step process begins with actual seeds from various plant life, then nurturing those seeds on their own farms around the world then utilizing the cold press and resin tapping methods for select oils. Steaming is the gentle way of extracting the essential oils while preserving their precious constituents. Stringent testing specifications are used to exceed international standards to keep the desired levels of natural bio-active compounds. The final step in the process is in the sealing of each product to ensure that only the absolute freshest oils are delivered. Below are a few of the Young Living farm locations.
