The Science of essential oil perfection
For nearly 30 years, we have set the industry standard for delivering the highest quality essential oils on earth. Young Living Founder D. Gary Young developed our five-step Seed to Seal® sourcing standards, insisting on premium quality at every stage. We audit every supplier to make sure they comply with our rigorous criteria and maintain our exacting methods throughout every stage of the process.
We work with botanists, agronomists, and scientists to ensure that the seeds we plant are of the highest quality, safeguarding authenticity and maintaining all possible benefits through each step of the distillation process.
We cultivate healthy plants by enriching the soil through composting, the use of natural fertilizers, crop rotation, watering with rain and/or irrigation, and monitoring the effects of daily weather conditions.
Through unique steam distillation, cold pressing, and hydro distillation methods, we use data points such as plant volume and curing time to bring you the most powerful essential oils possible.
Our highly trained scientists use our own in-house, state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, as well as independent laboratories, to ensure that our oils meet our stringent quality requirements.
We batch every essential oil with a number and then retest to pass quality control before releasing them for production. From there, the oils are used to produce essential oil blends, supplements, home products, and more.
