Why Do Oils Cost What They Cost?

To answer this question, we must first understand that some oils are simply more valuable than others. The reasons for this include:
- What plant the oil comes from
- What part of the plant the oil comes from
- The availability and health of the current supply of the plants
- How much actual plant material is needed
- Location of the farms
- Complexity of the harvesting process
- Complexity of the distillation process
- Labor costs
- Overhead of the company for things like warehouses, packaging, salaries, etc.

Here are a couple of great examples.

Thyme – Think about how little oil is extracted from each of those tiny, tiny leaves on the thyme sprigs. Thyme is about .16 per drop.

Frankincense – This oil is distilled from the resin of the Frankincense tree and it takes 8-10 years of tree growth before they can tap the resin. It is a laborious process. Frank is about .32 per drop.

Rose – It requires a whopping 60,000 rose petals to make one 5ml bottle of rose oil. And consider how hard it is to grow roses as well. They are very finicky. At $2.34 per drop, Rose is our most expensive oil.

With Young Living, QUALITY is first and foremost. Not all oils are created equal.

Oils from other companies, online vendors, the grocery store, Amazon, etc. can be dangerous. And that’s because they have likely been adulterated or changed in some way, added-to, cut with cheap carrier oils, and also contain synthetics. That’s why the prices are low. Don’t be lured.

Our trust in Young Living comes from the company’s promise of ‘Seed to Seal.’ Obsessive about quality and the sustainability of our planet, they are doing it right, through every step of the process. When you invest in the best, you will reap the rewards – living ABOVE the wellness line. Giving your body what it needs and creating a healthier lifestyle!
