ABOUT YOUNG LIVING

I like this company because they’re one of the first pure essential oil companies on the market. They’re one of the purest you can find and they’re organic. You can visit their farm anytime and take a look at exactly what they do — I dig the transparency!

Young Living isn’t cheap. But if you’re making your own products, they’re 100% worth it and the amount you spend is most likely less than you would on typical store-bought brands. Not to mention, YL’s rewards program is pretty awesome. If you spend monthly you get free oils. And you get points every time you spend and can eventually get free oils and products. Check them out for yourself!

*AN IMPORTANT NOTE*

Acquiring essential oils is resource-intensive. Some sustainability gurus aren’t a fan of essential oils for that reason — i.e., it takes pounds of lemons to create lemon essential oil, etc. I’m a big fan of essential oils, when used appropriately. 

Essential oils are super concentrated plant goodness. Because they’re so concentrated, a little goes a long way! I believe essential oils should be use sparingly and with a posture of gratitude for the planet. Where two or three drops of essential oil will do, don’t use 10. (It’s also better for your wallet, too!)

I support Young Living because I believe they are a good company that is continuing to strive to make better choices for the planet and for the creatures and folks on it. It’s important to ask questions and keep companies accountable. Young Living is in the process of becoming a zero-waste company! How exciting! Let’s hold them to that.

Young Living is not a perfect company. But I support a lot of what they’re doing! 🙂

Our commitment to transforming lives guides everything we do; it is the reason that we are the recognized leader in essential oils. Whether our members join our global community to find pure products they can trust, a greater sense of purpose, an opportunity to empower others, or whole-life wellness, Young Living offers proven solutions.
Our innovative Seed to Seal quality program is our commitment ensuring that with every Young Living product you use, you’re enjoying the benefits of our rigorous approach to Sourcing, Science, and Standards:

SOURCING

Our Sourcing protocols guide where we get our essential oils and how we ensure that those sources uphold our quality specifications—from our corporate-owned farms to our partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. Third-party validation verifies that these and other specifications are being followed.

SCIENCE

Our carefully sourced essential oils go through stringent testing in our state-of-the-art lab to help ensure that they meet our rigorous quality standards. Additionally, two independent and accredited labs test our essential oil samples. Not only are these essential oils pure, but our other innovative wellness products are formulated to exclude harmful ingredients that will never be found in our formulas, while undergoing extensive testing of their own.

STANDARDS

We strive to sustainably source rare botanicals, uplift communities, and more, all in an effort to offer pure products that you know are part of a greater good. This means partnering with sources who strive to operate ethically and comply with the law, protecting nature by exhaustively complying with all environmental laws, and becoming greener every day through reforestation; recycling; and building a brand-new, LEED-certified global headquarters.

DELIVERING WHOLE-LIFE WELLNESS

While our expanding line of 600 products offers limitless ways to gain greater physical wellness, the Young Living community offers members a way to discover wellness in every facet of life. Young Living’s global community of passionate, like-minded people embrace naturally derived solutions as a way to uplift their families and support their communities, building social and mental wellness, while our pure products support emotional, spiritual, and physical wellness.

POWERED BY PURPOSE

We are passionate about making an enduring impact in the world. Young Living makes a difference by:
1). Transforming lives through the work of The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation.
Since its inception in 2009, the Foundation has worked tirelessly to impact disadvantaged children around the world through its programs and partnerships that prevent malaria, provide shelter and quality education, rescue children from human trafficking, and much more. The Foundation’s operations are fully funded by Young Living, so 100 percent of donations go toward these impactful projects.
2). Providing transformative, purpose-filled work opportunities to thousands of people globally.
These jobs—found in offices, farms, warehouses, and distilleries—create positive change within local economies by providing competitive wages and benefits to individuals.
