Hi.

Welcome to my site!

I document my adventures in family-rearing, craft-dabbling, essential oil-loving, DIY-trying, recipe-failing, work-from-home-crushing, travel-seeking, surrogacy-gifting & adoption-yearning! 

Young Living's Seed to Seal Promise

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, they 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. The seeds they 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 their responsible and sustainable growing and harvesting methods. Their experts travel the world visiting our co-op farms to verify that their growing and cultivating processes match our high standards.

Step 3 - Distill

Combining ancient and modern techniques, Young Living uses a gentle, proprietary technique for steam extracting essential oils and preserving their precious constituents. They 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, their oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs, as well as in third-party facilities. Their testing methods ensure that their oils meet stringent specifications, exceed international standards, and contain the desired levels of natural bioactive compounds.

Step 5 - Seal

Using state-of-the-art equipment, each essential oil is carefully bottled and labeled. Thier carefully bottled, painstakingly produced essential oils are shipped to members worldwide.
