Why I chose Young Living?

My education and real-world experience is in environmental science and sustainability, so it's no surprise that YL's sustainability practices immediately struck me as unique and a movement that I wanted to support, wholeheartedly. YL operates their farms around the world to bring us essential oils that are from their native environment. In Oman, Sacred Frankincense is being distilled for the first time.  Gary Young and the team at YL have worked so closely with the people of Oman to create a strong, trusting relationship that YL is the first and only company to have permission to export Sacred Frankincense to the west. Wow! Check out more about their farms HERE.

Seed to Seal guarantee...what does that mean?

Young Living Essential Oils has been around for over 21 years. There are many other essential oil companies to choose from these days (and we do mean many); we see essential oils at almost every store we walk into.

So what makes us so different?

  • We are the ONLY essential oil company that owns its own farms or partners with farms that work up to our standards.
  • We test the dirt for pesticides.
  • We test the water for additives and toxins.
  • We harvest our own seeds to ensure there are no genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
  • We use essential oils as natural pesticides on our crops.
  • We harvest our plants according to the highest yield of potent oil­--sometimes during the day, during the night, by hand, by tool, by machinery.
  • We distill on-­site in our own distilleries, which are made of medical grade stainless steel, use low heat, slow steam processing to retain therapeutic properties of the oil, and we distill only one time. We test our own oils several times throughout the distillation process and after. We also bottle our own oils. All other essential oil companies buy their oils already distilled and have no quality or purity controls.
