The reason Young Living’s oils are so different is a result of their strict, detailed method for producing the oils to obtain the purest, ‘un-messed-with’ plant essences. Young Living calls this their Seed to Seal process, where every step from planting to bottling is detailed and controlled. You know where your product is coming from.
Young Living’s proprietary Seed to Seal process is the heart of their commitment to purity and authenticity. Young Living Essential Oils are genuine, free of synthetic chemicals, and of unmatched purity. Seed to Seal® is both a promise to you and a reflection of our sense of global stewardship. Through each step of our production process on both our own farms and partner farms, we use the highest standards possible to make our products, your life, and the earth better.
From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, we apply the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended. Only one company can make the Seed to Seal promise, and that is Young Living. To learn more, we would encourage you to visit seedtoseal.com.
I know that with Young Living, I can pick any of the 500+ oils or other products, and I don’t have to worry about what else was added. They are clean, pure, chemical-free options that save me time and worry.

This was one of my favorite moments from the Young Living farm- this farmer gave us sprigs of Peppermint and we tasted it straight out of the ground. YL uses no pesticides or chemicals and they do all their weeding by hand or hoe. I remember my Memaw kept a peppermint plant in her yard and whenever she wanted to freshen her breath she would eat a leaf. It was so fun to do the same thing and I felt like I was back in my Memaw's home garden again. Boy, do I miss her! It makes me so happy to know YL has such strict quality standards enough that I could grab a leaf off of a plant and put it in my mouth, just like Memaw's garden.

A common practice is to take a decent grade of essential oil and dilute it 90% to 95% with an odorless, colorless solvent (usually an inexpensive petrochemical) so that what was a pound of good oil becomes ten or twenty pounds of diluted oils to be sold as if it were the original substance, thus multiplying the profit. Such diluted oils often carry labels saying "Genuine" or "100% pure," which is allowed by the U.S.FDA... Mysteriously, for every pound of frankincense distilled in the world, more than a dozen pounds are eventually sold.
