With 24 global farms, it's easy to see how Young Living® has earned its quality reputation.
For me, the bottom line is their strict standards for planting, growing, harvesting, distilling, and producing essential oils. Young Living® is able to bring us the Seed to Seal® quality promise because they can control all these factors via their farms.
There has been unprecedented time and resources invested in ensuring that those quality standards are prioritized at each of the farms, allowing Young Living® to bring this unmatched quality of products to our homes.
Pioneering the essential oils industry, Young Living’s farms started over two decades ago with one small crop of lavender grown in St. Maries, Idaho. Since then, they have expanded to many corporate-owned farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal®-certified suppliers.
This is why Young Living’s essential oil products are the purest and most authentic in the world!
