Standards far beyond the standard.


Young Living believes that authenticity matters.

Essential oils are more than just what’s in the bottle. Quality starts at the source. Discover Young Living’s multi-decade story of partnership with nature and industry leadership and see why our products set the standard for purity that you can smell and feel.
As part of your wellness journey, we invite you to discover how pure, authentic essential oils and essential oil-infused products are the core of who we are.

We dedicate significant resources to providing the purest oils possible. Purity starts on the farm, and we proudly source our essential oils from corporate farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. These Partnership Principles of our Seed to Seal® program help ensure the purity of our oils at every point in the supply chain.

Step 1

Our Sourcing and Executive teams have been hand-selecting renowned suppliers of premium botanicals and building relationships with them for decades. We continue to foster and expand these relationships.

Step 2

Our essential oil farms play an integral role in the Seed to Seal promise. We’ve invested unprecedented time and resources to ensure that these standards are prioritized at each of our corporate-owned farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers.

Step 3
We back up signed Seed to Seal declarations with legally binding contracts that require our partners to deliver on those declarations.

Step 4 
We have spent millions of dollars on state-of-the-art labs with cutting-edge testing instruments. These labs, as well as a team of more than 50 scientists led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch make up our D. Gary Young Research Institute. If this team finds that a supplier’s oil doesn’t meet our demanding standards, they are sent to our warehouse for testing. Each test is carefully recorded in our library of historical testing data, the largest of its kind in the world.

Step 5
In addition to testing, Young Living verifies the quality of our oils via audits of our supply chain members. Our intricate global sourcing network is designed to bring our members superior products, and we are proud to have implemented an objective audit process.
Why insist on these demanding, expensive practices? Because for Young Living, the big picture doesn’t have much to do with the bottom line. We’re driven to make the world a better place by sharing the benefits of pure essential oils. If we’re not bringing families authentic quality, we’re not bringing them authentic benefits.
