About Essential Oils
Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation, but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful and effective than dry herbs, delivering quick and effective results. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals that can be diffused, inhaled, applied topically, incorporated into massage, or taken internally.
Ready to take a peak at different ways to enjoy the quality of Young Living Essential oils? Take a peak here:
Everything in life comes down to quality.
two carrots for example: One is grown 100% organically in a home, toxin-free garden while another lands in the grocery store from a large farm with depleted soils full of toxins from pesticides. Even though the carrots are both orange with green tops, their benefit to the body is drastically different.
The same is true for oils. The processes used to grow, harvest and distill plants and trees for the purpose of extracting essential oils is critical to the end product. They come in three varieties:
Perfume Grade — in soaps, lotions & health food stores
Food Grade — in peppermints, mouthwash, toothpastes
Therapeutic Grade — 100% pure, medicinal, handled with care, nothing added or removed.
Here’s a fact you need to wrap your head around: A bottle of each of the above grades of oils might say 100% pure oil, but this is often not the case. Also, even 100% pure oil from a non-controlled farm will not have the quality of 100% pure oil from a farm free of pesticides, etc.
Remember the carrots: Both are 100% pure carrot. However, the impact in supporting the health of the body is wildly different with each one.
To experience the health benefits we’re talking about on this site, you must use 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Anyone can claim that. Regulations are not strict. It’s very important to know your source.
It’s All About The Quality – Seed To Seal
Young Living is proud to set the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity by carefully monitoring the production of their oils through their unique Seed to Seal process. From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, Yuoung Living apply the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended.
The exclusive Seed to Seal process includes five painstaking steps
Powerful, effective essential oils come from seeds and plants that are verified for their essential oil potential by Young Living experts, partnering with university experts.
Young Living farms, located around the globe, are dedicated to perfecting the best growing and harvesting methods.

These operations provide an ongoing source for essential oils that meet Young Living’s demanding quality standards.
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 the most effective essential oils, as well as using cold pressing and resin tapping methods for select oils.
Young Living never accepts diluted, cut, or adulterated oils. To guarantee consistent quality, our oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs, as well as in third-party facilities, to ensure that they meet stringent specifications, exceed international standards, and contain the optimal levels of natural bioactive compounds.

Love the way the spritz of fragrance from a fresh orange peel can brighten your day?
