Sourcing

Not all essential oils you see in the market contain the same concentration. Many products today use synthetics, contaminants, and other impure minerals in their essential oil, reducing the impact of its benefits. The ill practices lead to the initial foundation of Young Living products, and we incorporate the practice of non-compromising quality on all of our supplements.

Young Living Chief Supply Officer Lauren Walker guides the process of sourcing products from carefully vetted and pesticides free organic farm, our partner farms, and other suppliers before using them in our production process.

Partnership Principals

Our oils largely come from our farms and other partner farms that ensure the quality of their product. This empowers us to consistently keep up with the quality of our essential oil and produce the best products for our users. We work on five rigid principles to power our partner relations. These include Seed to Seal Specifications, Binding Agreements, Stringent Testing, Ongoing Audits, and Established Relationships.

Formulation and Production

Our company constantly test oils and other ingredients to offer the best match for your health. Our expanded distribution centers in Speak Fork, Utah is an ultra-modern facility to practice and test the essential oils, its ingredients, and the final product.

Third- Part Substantiation

We choose to work with companies and individuals which we trust, but even after establishing a successful relationship with them, we routinely engage with their production process to ensure that the quality standards are upheld across their production line.

Our oils are sourced from our corporate-owned farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. This empowers us to source conscientiously and with sensitivity to local communities and ecosystems. We vet and select our like-minded suppliers according to five principles: Established Relationships, Seed to Seal Specifications, Binding Agreements, Stringent Testing, and Ongoing Audits.

Our superior oils and ingredients deserve facilities and formulas to match. Our expanded Distribution Center in Spanish Fork, Utah, is a state-of-the-art facility, where we use best manufacturing practices to test essential oils, ingredients, and products and to formulate and manufacture the innovative offerings you love.
