Young Living Essential Oils
Why do I choose to use to Young Living’s essential oils? That’s a very simple, yet complicated question. I will give you a short answer and a long answer.
The Short Answer
After a lot of research about various quality essential oil suppliers, I decided that Young Living’s high quality oils, values, and practices lined up with my goals. I don’t have to worry about the quality of oils that they provide. I know that no matter the way I choose to partake of an oil, I’ll be safe when used appropriately and actually receive the purest benefits the essential oil has to offer.
The Long Answer
Young living has been a pioneer and industry leader when it comes to essential oils. Young Living is known for their high quality oils and what they call their “Seed to Seal” commitment. This commitment provides me peace of mind that I am getting quality and purity that I seek. I receive high quality oils that are unadulterated.
- Here is what Young Living has to say* about their “Seed to Seal” commitment:
Sourcing guides the process by which we obtain essential oils from our corporate farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers by ensuring that the production of these products is of the highest quality.
Science guides the formulation and stringent testing of our essential oils, products, and ingredients to deliver pure, effective essential oils and innovative wellness products that meet our rigorous quality standards.
Standards guides the compliance measures taken throughout our sourcing process to ensure all domestic and international legal guidelines are adhered to as part of our effort to protect plant species throughout the world.
How Young Living Ensures Quality
Young Living owns and manages farms all around the world to grow the best quality plants. They also only work with other farms that have been vetted and maintain the high standards that Young Living hold. Reading in depth more about the Seed to Seal commitment in Young Living’s own words HERE can provide you security in knowing they only accept the best.
For the plants well being, the history of the land is researched before any plants are sown to ensure that the land is free of chemicals and pesticides. Essential oils are also used to help maintain the health of the plants. (Did you know that some essential oils are excellent for repelling pests?) This entire process is done with the highest quality standards in mind to ensure the product you and I receive in the end are of the highest quality.
Remember the bit about how essential oils are extracted on my general oil informational page? Young Living’s process of extraction is through gentle steam distillation or expression. This ensures that the oils you receive contain no fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants. They also do not adulterate and dilute their oils by adding filler carrier oils to lower their production expenses. What you receive from Young Living is 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils.
Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
Young Living tests all of their distilled or sourced oils to be sure it has the highest naturally-occurring blend of constituents to maximize the desired effect. If an oil does not test to their standards, that oil is rejected. You can read a little bit more about their process and comments HERE.
Their oils are also not redistilled. Redistilled essential oils are of lower quality.
Young Living Foundation
Founded in 2009, the Young Living Foundation was created to help educate and improve the lives of people that are typically overlooked. I don’t think I could do justice to what this foundation does. To get a full idea of what the Young Living Foundation does for the ignored in the world, please visit their website HERE.
What makes me love this foundation even more is the simple fact that every single penny donated to this foundation goes towards helping. Not a single penny is used for “administrative” costs. The Young Living business covers all administrative costs that the Young Living Foundation has.
