Those people overstep scope of practice in diagnosing and treating way too much for my comfort.
This is my biggest problem with YL and why I never went with them. I felt they were using it too much to diagnose and treat. Almost saying it was a "cure." That's at least how I've always read it. DoTerra I haven't seen it so much like that but with it still being young it may go that way. I have had people come up to me saying "such and such from doTerra works for such and such disease." I use the oils only for the massage aspect and tell them other benefits ONLY if I have experienced it. For example I love the Breathe and it has done wonders for my allergies and asthma. That's for me and if they want they can try it and see if it works for them.
I have found doTerra to be my favorite EO brand so far. I've worked with Aveda, Lotus touch, YL while in school, and some other kind that's local to me that I heard was good but wasn't really impressed with. I'm not saying I'm an expert. By all means, I'm still learning. This is just what I've found since I've started working with essential oils.
I do like some of the links that have been shared. I went ahead and saved some to look at further at a later time.
