Why Young Living?
25 years ago when Young Living was founded, the essential oil industry was a fledgling, consisting of a handful of scientists doing independent research across there globe and very minimal understanding of the potential to the essences within plants — the living liquid, versus dried herbs. The founder of Young Living was tenacious to learn and test and pioneer the creation of research, collaboration, and uncovering so many breakthroughs in the science and potential of essential oils for living beings on this earth.
Gary Young not only set his intentions on healing and purpose and humanity over profit, success and margins, he was tireless in innovating and looking for the best quality, best standards and best conditions. He made the choice to keep control of the entire supply chain to ensure the utmost purity. No other company is so involved in the production process and no other company has the experience, testing and research experience that Young Living has in the industry.
The standards Young Living adheres to are called Seed To Seal, and Young Living is the only company that plants, grows, distills and distributes essential oils from beginning to end. For those of you who like to know those details, I’ve listed them below.
But the story is so much more powerful than a list of standards (which are impressive and first-class, btw).
I had the opportunity to go to the Lavender Farm in Mona, UT and their transparency is second to none. We walked through the distillery, saw the plants, got our hands in the nutrient-rich, living soil. And leaned about their sustainable farming practices. A member at the farm said the most touching thing to me:
“We put so much care into giving the plants life so they can give us life in return”
In my time with this company I have seen the deep roots, the passion for loving others, bringing healing, grace and purpose to others and I align so much with that mindset.
Ok, maybe they’re just oils, but there is something really special here and you might not fully understand until you experience it for yourself. 💗
Young Living Standards
When you use Young Living products, you are guaranteed the most pure, therapeutic grade products on the market. Young Living has their Seed to Seal guarantee to ensure us that they cultivate their seeds, plant them on their own farms (which are open to visitors anytime), weed by hand, harvest, distill on site and package in house. All distilleries are stainless steel and glass parts, so your oil never touches plastics that can leech into the final product. If a crop has a bad year, that oil will not be produced. Young Living does not believe in using fillers or synthetic products to just sell an item. They are a product driven company over profit driven and want only the best to arrive to you. That is their guarantee!
The reason Young Living’s oils are so different is they produce a therapeutic grade oil. These oils are a result of Young Living’s strict, meticulous method for producing the oils to obtain the purest plant essences.
Seed – Potent essential oils come from plant species that have been authenticated by Young Living experts. Species certification involves scientific research, field study, university partnerships, and on‐site planting certification.
Cultivate – Through cultivation on Young Living farms located around the globe, Young Living has mastered the creation of pure, potent essential oils. The company takes this knowledge around the world to co‐op farms to certify that these farms’ growing processes meet Young Living’s strict quality standards.
Distill – Young Living’s proprietary low‐temperature, low‐pressure steam distillation process ensures that the beneficial plant compounds in every batch of essential oil remain uncompromised during the extraction process. Cold pressing and resin tapping methods are also used for select oils.
Test – Each essential oil must pass Young Living’s stringent testing to ensure the optimal bioactive natural compounds are present. Young Living uses its own internal labs, in addition to third‐party audits, to verify that international purity and potency standards are met and surpassed.
Seal – Young Living completes the Seed to Seal® process by carefully sealing each bottle of essential oil before shipping them to members worldwide.
Seed to Seal is why YL is the best of the best and we trust them over any other company or brand. We are so thankful for how we are able to care for our families through their care and commitment to the quality of their products.
What sets us apart:
Since I discovered Young Living, I get all of my household cleaning, body care, skin care, dental care, hair care, makeup, supplements, laundry soap, and essential oils from Young Living because they ensure that EVERY product fulfills our Seed to Seal Guarantee--that from the dirt, seed, water, processing, bottling, etc, there are NO toxic chemicals, no GMOs, no nanoparticles, no preservatives, or by-products that are harmful to me, my family, my dog and my house. With all of Young Living’s products, their ingredients have levels that rank nothing higher than a 1 or a 2 in the EWG rating scale.
While they are an essential oil company, they are also a fully-equipped natural products company. They have supplements, beauty products, household cleaning products, stuff for kids and babies, home purifiers, bath and shower products, oral care, and yes - even makeup! They make this whole switching out products, what we like to call “Switch & Ditch” super convenient. You can simply use your current products and replace them with something Young Living has. And these aren't sub-par products, people. They are top notch.
I am SO grateful that we have high quality safe and non toxic options that support our bodies vs leave a toxic chemical footprint that can wreak havoc in our bodies. 🌱 🌱 🌱
