Simply put, we only source from the best! Whether it is our corporate owned farms or our Seed to Seal certified partners, we know Young Living starts at the beginning from the very best.

My favorite part is the sourcing standard details: 

Young Living and all of our partners must meet the highest standards in:

  • Authentication
  • Agricultural Practices
  • Harvesting & Collection
  • Extraction & Distillation Practices
  • Testing
  • Traceability
  • Storage & Bottling

The science allows for us to be 100% sure about what we are getting. 

Young Living employs our own scientists to do over a dozen tests (listed through the link below) and routinely works with independent and accredited labs to also test the products. The Research and Development team also works to perform testing to support product claims on all the products we love! 

Quality starts on the farms and is proven in the lab using Industry Leading Science, Third Party Testing, and Innovative Product Testing to ensure the quality of their product.



On top of ensuring the very best quality, Young Living also wants to do business responsibly and sustainably. We choose partners who produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally.

Reforestation of harvested trees on the corporate farms is one of my favorite ways that Young Living chooses to keep their standards above the line.

In addition, Young Living is the first in the essential oils industry to create a Lacey Act Compliance Program that is comprehensive and the first company to be reviewed and accepted by the government in the industry. It is the gold standard for compliance programs.
