Join Young Living Chief Operating Officer Jared Turner to discover Young Living’s two-decade story of partnership with nature and industry leadership and see why our essential oils set the standard for purity that you can smell and feel.
As part of your wellness journey, we invite you to discover how pure, authentic essential oils are the core of who we are.
We dedicate every necessary resource to providing the purest oils possible. Purity starts on the farm, and we proudly source 100 percent of our essential oils from corporate farms, partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. Each of these locations embraces our Partnership Principles program to help ensure the purity of our oils at every point in the supply chain.Young Living believes that authenticity matters. As part of your wellness journey, we invite you to discover how pure, authentic essential oils are the core of who we are.
Our founder and chairman, D. Gary Young, and our sourcing team have been hand-selecting renowned suppliers of premium botanicals and building relationships with them for decades; we continue to foster and expand these relationships.
All farms—whether a partner farm, certified Seed to Seal supplier, or even our very own corporate farms—sign declarations that they will seed, cultivate, and distill to our strict Seed to Seal specifications. This includes paying diligent attention to soil, water, and atmospheric conditions and harvesting and distilling according to exact specifications to ensure the most potent oil possible.
We back up these signed Seed to Seal declarations with legally binding contracts that require our partners to deliver on those declarations with every crop and every distillation.
We have spent millions of dollars on a state-of-the-art lab with cutting-edge testing instruments, as well as a team of researchers with a combined 180 years of experience led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch, a widely respected analytical scientist. If this team finds that a supplier’s oil doesn’t meet our demanding standards, it never reaches our warehouse. Each test is carefully recorded in our library of historical testing data, the largest of its kind in the world.
Our farm audits not only address quality and legal compliance but also responsible agriculture. We are continuously working to remain on the cutting edge of sustainable soil, weed, and pest management, and of responsible forestry. At Young Living, a respectful partnership with the earth is non-negotiable.
Why insist on these demanding, expensive standards? Because for Gary and Young Living, the big picture doesn’t have much to do with the bottom line. We’re driven to make the world a better place by sharing the benefits of pure essential oils. If we’re not bringing families authentic quality, we’re not bringing them authentic benefits.
We’re proud of our legacy and remain as motivated as ever to continue expanding our message. Want to join the modern essential oil movement? Share this story on social media and help us get the word out about why and how Young Living insists on authenticity!
