Why We Produce Our Own Oils at Young Living Farms
To guarantee a supply of pure genuine authentic grade essential oils, we cultivate our herbs organically on farmland uncontaminated by chemical fertilizers, fungicides or herbicides. We irrigate with clean mountain water and use an advanced mix of enzymes, minerals, and organic biosolids to build and maintain the soil. We steam distill freshly harvested plant material using a costly, slow, low-pressure, low temperature process that preserves the fragile complex
chemistry of the essential oil.
*** Young Living has an animal farm and zoo which produces lots of manure for NATURAL fertilizer for the soil. No chemical fertilizers are ever used.
Uncompromising Quality Control . . .
Every batch of essential oils received at Young Living’s laboratories – whether grown at the Young Living farms or in a foreign country – is quarantined, inspected, and tested for purity and quality with both organoleptic and chemical analysis. Samples are sent to independent laboratories for analysis by
state-of-the-art, high-resolution gas chromatography, mass spectroscopy, and infared spectra analysis. These test unmask the chemical anatomy of each oil, helping to expose oils that may be unpure, adulterated, or even improperly distilled. Some oils are subjected to further levels of testing at labs in England, France and at Weber State University. Altogether, oils can go through five separate levels of quality analysis before they are released.
