Have you noticed that some of Young Living’s essential oils have white Vitality labels and some don’t? Are you wondering what the difference is between the regular and Vitality essential oils? Well, you’re not alone! I’ve gotten this question so many times on my Facebook page that I figured I better finally blog about it.
For 20+ years, most of Young Living’s essential oils included a label with topical, aromatic, and dietary usage directions. However, in 2014 the FDA told Young Living that an oil could only be marketed in one way: topical and aromatic, OR dietary. This put quite the kink in things because for many years, oilers used Young Living’s Lavender, Frankincense, Lemon, Thieves, DiGize, Peppermint, Copaiba, Stress Away, etc essential oil all three ways because the label on the bottle told us we could.
To keep the FDA happy AND to continue to market (and educate on) the versatility of their oils, Young Living launched a line of essential oils called Vitality in 2016. The regular essential oils now have a colored label that only give topical and aromatic usage directions, while the Vitality essential oils now have an easy to identify white label that only give dietary usage directions.
Currently, Young Living sells a total of 43 Vitality essential oils (and are always adding more to the list): Basil, Bergamot, Lemongrass, Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, Lavender, Peppermint, Spearmint, Black Pepper, Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Ginger, Carrot Seed, Celery Seed, Dill, Bergamot, Citrus Fresh, Grapefruit, Jade Lemon, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Tangerine, DiGize, EndoFlex, Frankincense, and Thieves, Cardamom, Coriander, Fennel, German Chamomile, Laurus Nobilis, Marjoram, Mountain Savory, Nutmeg, Sage, Tarragon, GLF, JuvaCleanse, JuvaFlex, Longevity, and SclarEssence.
Each of the 43 Vitality essential oils has a regular counterpart. For example, Young Living sells Lemon essential oil and Lemon Vitality essential oil. Each Vitality essential oil is the exact same oil as its regular counterpart! 😉 For example, Lemon and Lemon Vitality are the exact same essential oil. The only difference is the label! The Lemon essential oil in the regular bottle (that you can use aromatically and topically) is absolutely no different than the Lemon essential oil in the white Vitality bottle (that you can ingest).
