OUR UNIQUE SEED TO SEAL PROCESS INCLUDES FIVE PAINSTAKING STEPS
Young Living is proud to set the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity by carefully monitoring the production of our oils through our unique Seed to Seal process. From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, we apply rigorous quality controls to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended.
Step 1: Seed
Powerful essential oils come from seeds and plants that are verified for their potential to produce high-quality essential oils.
Our own experts partner with university researchers to evaluate the essential oil potential of our seeds.
The seeds we use are selected for their ability to become plants with the highest possible levels of bioactive compounds.
Step 2: Cultivate
Young Living farms, located around the globe, are dedicated to perfecting our responsible and sustainable growing and harvesting methods.
Our experts travel the world visiting our co-op farms to verify that their growing and cultivating processes match our high standards.
These operations provide an ongoing source for essential oils that meet Young Living’s demanding quality standards.
Step 3: Distill
Combining ancient and modern techniques, Young Living is recognized as an innovator in essential oil distillation.
We use a gentle, proprietary technique for steam extracting essential oils and preserving their precious constituents.
We use cold pressing and resin tapping methods for select oils.
Step 4: Test
Young Living never accepts diluted, cut, or adulterated oils.
To guarantee consistent, verifiable quality, our oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs, as well as in third-party facilities.
Our testing methods ensure that our oils meet stringent specifications, exceed international standards, and contain the desired levels of natural bioactive compounds.
Step 5: Seal
Young Living completes the Seed to Seal process in our 107,000-square-foot facility in Spanish Fork, Utah.
Handling with Care
Using state-of-the-art equipment, each essential oil is carefully bottled and labeled.
