WHY YOUNG LIVING
Quality, friend. It is of the utmost importance. I am SO passionate about this!
Here is the short version: Young Living is the ONLY company that has complete control over their essential oils from preparing the ground for planting seeds to putting the seal on your bottle and shipping it off. YL owns their own distilleries and has perfected the art of distillation. They do seriously rigorous testing of their oils to be sure they are up to their standards. They are beyond organic and the purest of the pure. There is no better peace of mind than that. These are the only oils I will ever use on my family.
Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs whatever we put on it, whether it is beneficial or toxic. Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sourced. Young Living has made it a top priority to make sustainability and quality top priorities. This is part of what makes them SO different from any other essential oil company. I have visited their Mona, Utah farm and it was incredible to see their beginning-to-end process firsthand. They are completely transparent with the entire process and ANYONE can visit a farm and absolutely should. You will be blown away! I am all set to visit their farms in Idaho and Ecuador this year and can't wait!
During the process, if anything happens that causes the oil to not meet their standards, they simply do not use that oil. They will start over. This can mean that at times oils will go out of stock, but that is a GOOD thing! I would rather patiently wait for the life-changing therapeutic grade oils we've come to love than accept a low-quality oil cranked out in a lab. This company is about quality and wellness, first and foremost.
Here are some of the main reasons I will ONLY use Young Living essential oils for my family:
- YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS USES HEIRLOOM QUALITY PLANTS THAT ARE BEYOND ORGANIC, NON-GMO, NON-HYBRID, NON-TREATED AND NON-PATENTED.
- THEY USE ESSENTIAL OILS FOR PEST CONTROL AND WEED BY HAND.
- THEY OWN THEIR OWN FARMS AND DISTILLERIES AND HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER THE ENTIRE PROCESS. THIS IS CALLED THEIR SEED TO SEAL GUARANTEE.
- THEY TAKE GREAT CARE TO HARVEST AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME AND HAVE PERFECTED THE ART OF DISTILLATION.
- QUALITY IS THEIR GOAL AND EACH BATCH OF OILS MUST GO THROUGH SEVERAL IN HOUSE AND THIRD-PARTY TESTS.
- THEIR OILS EXCEED INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS.
If you've ever bought your oils at the market and found you were completely underwhelmed by them, you are not alone. With the essential oil industry being mostly unregulated, the vast majority of oils, even those labeled as "pure" or "organic" are only required to be 5% essential oils and the rest can be synthetic filler (toxins). That is why they are so inexpensive - they are only suitable to use for perfume or cosmetics. That is also why we get our oils from Young Living!
It brings much peace of mind to know that I do not ever have to worry about using their oils on my family. They are the purest of the pure and can even be safely ingested! Check the label on the essential oils at your local market and you will find they are not even safe for topical application, let alone internal use.
