100% pure essential oils
Why I choose Young Living Essential Oils
Young Living controls its product from Seed to Seal. They cultivate, harvest and distill many of their oils on their very own farms across the world. This gives YL the unique ability to control their quality and standards at each step of the process.
In Biblical times, once considered more valuable than gold and silver, essential oils have been used for over 5,000 years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes. They have recently gained popularity as a natural, safe and cost-effective plant therapy for a number of health benefits. But not all oils are created the same. These are some of the reasons why I choose Young Living Essential Oils.
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.
You get what you pay for
YL guarantees 100% pure, genuine, THERAPEUTIC-grade essential oils steam-distilled at low pressure and low temperature. Young Living cultivates, harvests, and distills on their land and have 100% control of the entire process.
Own their farms
Young Living is the only essential oil company that owns their farms or partners with farms that are willing to live up to their standards for growing, harvesting and distilling. Young Living distills products from their independently-owned farms for maximum quality control.
Oils do not expire
Young Living oils do not expire. 100% pure essential oils (excluding citrus) will last indefinitely if properly stored away from heat and sunlight.
Finest production practices in the industry
They distill oils once at low temperatures and pressures, using chemical-free water and medical-grade stainless steel distillers.
Seed to Seal
Young Living is the only essential oil company in the world with a Seed to Seal process since they control every single aspect of production. Seed, Cultivate, Distill, Test, and Seal. Seed to Seal is a higher standard than FDA-Certified Organic.
Young Living's farms are open to the public. Anyone can visit the Young Living farms around the globe and participate in the harvest and distillation process. Their open-door practices allow any of us to visit the farm or distillery and validate their practices of operation.
Thousands of acres of sustainable, organic farmland. Farms are throughout the world so that plants can grow in the climate they thrive in.
No pesticides or chemicals
There are no pesticides or chemicals used on YL plants. Weeds are removed by hand, hoe or steam.
Young Living offers a selection of 88 single oils, 80 blended oils and most importantly, they produce the Thieves Oil Blend.
Rigorous testing on every oil
Every oil goes through extremely rigorous and strict stringent testing, using 6 independent external labs, through unbiased third-party validation, with up to 20 tests per oil measuring the pH of the oil to its thickness, consistency, combustibility, metal content, and purity.
Every oil has been tested free of pesticides and synthetics of any kind. Young Living won't farm on any land that hasn't been organic for at least 50 years.
I use the oils every day, and every night. My inspiration to create this website came from my personal experiences and benefits I experienced and/or witnessed when sharing with friends.
26 years of research and experience
It all started in 1993 when D. Gary Young and his wife Mary started their first organic herb farming and distillery operation.
These are just some of the reasons why I choose Young Living Essential Oils and what sets them apart from the other companies in the market.
As with any essential oil, perform a small test patch to the skin first before using it all over. Always mix essential oils with a carrier oil or lotion first to dilute them before applying it to the skin. Women who pregnant or nursing are discouraged from using any essential oils.

As long as I can remember I've always had an inherent belief everything we need to heal comes from nature and from God. My intention with this website and blog is to merge that which I feel with what I've learned and with what I've experienced. If you would like to embark on this journey with me, I would love to have you.
