Many companies claim to be committed to various degrees of standards for their products.
It’s easy to make such statements. It’s an entirely different ballgame to actually do it.
Young Living doesn’t just claim high standards, they deliver. The Young Living Seed to Seal® guarantee is unmatched in the essential oil business. So what does this mean for you? It means the therapeutic benefits that you seek from essential oils and blends will be there. This can’t be said for oils sourced from compromised farms, or oils with added synthetics and fillers.

Not all essential oils are created equally. Young Living does not add synthetics or cheap fillers to their oils. They also refuse to use unethical production practices. Young Living sources products from carefully vetted corporate-owned farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. It is not uncommon for an entire batch of oil to be rejected when it doesn't meet Young Living's industry leading standards.
Young Living has incredible, privately owned farms that many Oily Gurus have personally been to! Young Living also works with Seed to Seal certified providers. This not only helps meet demand, but allows Young Living to respect and utilize local communities.
