Editor's Notes

  1. Young Living is known throughout the world not only for superior essential oils and essential oil-infused products but also for setting the industry standard for quality. This is what we call our Seed to Seal program.
  2. The Seed to Seal program helps ensure that with every supplement, every skin care solution, and every pure essential oil your family uses, you’re enjoying the benefits of our global resources, industry leadership, and over two decades of innovation. The result is a pristine final product that you can use with peace of mind and without a second thought.
  3. Our Seed to Seal program is supported by three pillars: Sourcing, Science, and Standards. Each contains our approaches for delivering transformative, innovative, and pure products to you. The standards within each pillar are demanding, but we’re proud to lead the way for our industry with these extensive, continuously expanding benchmarks.
  4. Overseen by Lauren Walker, Young Living’s Chief Supply Chain Officer, our Sourcing pillar guides how we obtain pure, authentic products and ingredients—from our own corporate-owned farms, Seed to Seal-certified suppliers, partner farms, and qualified manufacturers.
  5. Our sourcing practices guide where we get our essential oils—whether from our corporate-owned farms, partner farms, or Seed to Seal-certified suppliers—and how we help ensure that our sources are reputable and uphold our demanding specifications. Additionally, the standards within this pillar help ensure that these premium essential oils and ingredients are produced and manufactured without cutting corners.
  6. We are committed to providing families with pure products that are genuine and free from harsh chemicals. This is why we and our partners are guided by our commitment to lead the way with the highest standards in essential oil authentication, testing, and more.   To validate the quality of the products we source and to help ensure that these standards have been upheld, each batch of Young Living essential oil goes through rigorous testing in our state-of-the-art laboratories. Our other products go through specific testing protocols as well. If there are indications that a product was improperly sourced or manufactured, we reject the batch.
  7. We source from our corporate-owned farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. This global network empowers us to source conscientiously and with sensitivity to local communities and ecosystems. Young Living’s corporate farms are where we showcase our Seed to Seal program in action. At each of these scenic locations, Young Living members and the public are invited to see not only where we grow powerful botanicals but also how we distill essential oils and perform industry-changing essential oil research. These farms are where our Seed to Seal program was born. Our partner farms are where we have joined forces with like-minded suppliers to produce the pure products our members love. While these locations are independently owned, we have spent many years building trusted relationships with them, offering extensive resources to help ensure that their practices align with our Seed to Seal standards. Our Seed to Seal-certified suppliers are carefully vetted; and like our partner farms, these suppliers embrace the philosophy of respectfully partnering with the earth.
  8. We’re proud to own and partner with top-tier farms and distilleries all around the world. Here’s a look at our global presence. 
  9. Our corporate farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers each embrace our Partnership Principles program to help ensure that our Seed to Seal standards are followed at every point in the supply chain. These principles include: Established Relationships, Seed to Seal Specifications, Binding Agreements, Stringent Testing, and Ongoing Audits.   It all starts with strong relationships. Our Sourcing and Executive teams have hand-selected renowned suppliers of premium botanicals and have been building relationships with them for decades.   To maintain these relationships, all farms sign declarations that they will seed, cultivate, and distill to our specifications.   We back up these signed Seed to Seal declarations with legally binding agreements that require our partners to deliver on those declarations.   When we receive products from these suppliers, we verify their quality with an extensive battery of tests. If our research team, with its 180 combined years of experience, finds that a supplier’s product doesn’t meet our demanding standards, it is not sold.   In addition to its testing, Young Living verifies the quality of our oils via third-party audits of our supply chain. Our intricate global sourcing network is designed to bring our members superior products, and we are proud to have implemented an objective audit process.
  10. As a result of these careful sourcing protocols and our long-term relationships with renowned suppliers, superior essential oils are available to Young Living. While lower quality essential oils are abundant, easy to find, and inexpensive, we choose to source these superior oils, so we can choose—formula after formula, batch after batch—to produce the highest quality products possible, without compromise.
  11. Because Young Living goes to such great lengths to source superior ingredients, we also believe it’s important to formulate, package, and ship products in a superior facility to match. Newly expanded in July of 2016, our Spanish Fork, Utah, Distribution Center is a state-of-the-art facility where we test essential oils, ingredients, and products, as well as formulate and manufacture signature products in our clean facility.
  12. Through internal and third-party supply chain audits, Young Living ensures that inferior or unethically sourced ingredients don’t become part of our products. Our intricate global sourcing network is designed to bring our members superior products, and we are proud to take part in an objective, thorough audit of our sourcing to make sure that’s exactly what’s happening.
  13. Seed to Seal all starts—where else?—at the source. We insist that the essential oils we receive from our corporate farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers are of the highest quality because inferior, synthetic essential oils make for inferior products. And because our mission is to transform lives with premium essential oils and essential oil-infused products, purity and authenticity are non-negotiable. Sourcing impacts your family with every Young Living product you use because when you clean your home with Thieves, comfort your family with the scent of Lavender, or support your wellness with our Vitality line, you do so with complete confidence that your favorite Young Living products came from sources you can trust.
  14. Seed to Seal’s second pillar is Science. This is the pillar that verifies the quality of the products and ingredients we’ve carefully sourced.
  15. Once we have carefully sourced our superior essential oils, we put them through a stringent testing process to help ensure that every batch meets our rigorous quality standards. We also use respected, third-party labs to provide objective quality verification.   With superior essential oils and premium ingredients from our partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers, we craft effective, naturally derived formulas, avoiding potentially harmful ingredients found in many mainstream products.
  16. While our essential oil quality starts in the field, it’s proven in the lab. The quality for which we are known is defined by the work of our industry-leading Research team. Led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch, the research team has a combined 180 years of experience, which they put to work using advanced testing processes in our state-of-the-art labs to help ensure that our products meet our stringent purity and safety specifications.   Each batch of essential oil undergoes a range of tests in our multimillion-dollar lab; these tests determine whether we use or reject a given batch of essential oils.
  17. If a sample passes testing with our Research team, it is tested again by our Quality Control team, which will pass or fail the batch, clearing it for either production or rejection. Young Living frequently rejects batches of essential oil when they are not up to our specifications.
  18. Our extensive testing includes GCMS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry). This elementary test gives us a detailed profile of the oils to ensure they are up to our standards on a molecular level. In addition to the standard GCMS, our lab is also home to two in-house IRMS (Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer) testing instruments to determine whether an oil is from an organic or synthetic source. GCMS and IRMS are just two basic tests in a battery of organoleptic, chemical, physical, and microbiological tests we use in our own labs. Other, more advanced tests not often used throughout the industry include FTIR and ICP-MS.
  19. Not only are essential oils tested in our labs, but our other offerings also undergo specific tests that determine purity and shelf life. All tests are recorded in our database, one of the largest of its kind in the world. We have been collecting testing data for 23 years and continue to meticulously record the results of our testing.
  20. Product testing doesn’t take place exclusively in-house. We also test product samples as needed with independent, respected, and accredited labs that employ certified chemical analysts with over 300 years of combined laboratory experience. This provides reliable, objective testing data that supports our commitment to purity.
  21. We create our pure, effective formulas with the cleanest and most innovative ingredients available. We also focus on what’s not in the formulas. We’ve developed—and continuously update—an expanding list of potentially harmful or harsh additives that may appear in mainstream products but will never be found in ours. Rest assured, our products offer all the ingredients you want while avoiding the ones you don’t want.   Young Living watches scientific trends and monitors new research to learn about other potentially harmful ingredients to add to our list and to formulate and reformulate our products accordingly.   This level of conscientiousness with our ingredients allows us to craft life-enhancing products that families can use with full peace of mind. Our emphasis on exhaustively testing and obsessively formulating our products gives members one less thing to worry about.
  22. While our conscientious sourcing practices help ensure that the Young Living products you love come from suppliers that you can trust, we’re not satisfied to leave it at that. Our Science pillar helps verify, batch by batch, that no inferior product makes its way to your door. Not only does this pillar help ensure purity and authenticity, but it also helps ensure efficacy and freedom from harsh, toxic ingredients.
  23. Seed to Seal’s final pillar is Standards. This pillar encompasses the ethics of our production practices, from laws to green standards.
  24. As the leader of the modern essential oil movement and a close partner with the earth, part of Young Living’s stewardship is to do business responsibly, including sustainably sourcing rare botanicals, uplifting local communities, and always going above and beyond to comply with local environmental rules. The goal? To offer a pure product that you know is part of a greater good.
  25. Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sourced, which is why we choose to partner with sources we know produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally.
  26. Not only is our Sustainable Compliance Program exhaustive, but it’s also the first of its kind in the industry. It is the gold standard for compliance programs, and we are proud to have gone above and beyond to establish it.   We have engaged top legal experts around the world to keep us advised of the most current laws, as well as to inform us how to appropriately apply them to our most important business needs. The program identifies several specific legal factors related to harvesting in order to protect delicate landscapes, plants, and wildlife. We are then better informed to know where, how, and how much to plant and harvest.   These steps set Young Living ahead of the curve in compliance.
  27. Our efforts go beyond a conscientious supply chain. Young Living’s commitment to sustainable business includes reforestation of harvested trees; recycling at some Young Living offices; and the construction of our brand-new, LEED-certified global headquarters in Lehi, Utah.   These efforts collectively add up to an industry-leading effort to respectfully partner with the earth.
  28. As a Young Living member, you value the opportunity to be a force for good. Our Standards pillar creates a system of legal, ethical, and green benchmarks that help you do just that, empowering you to love and share the benefits of Young Living with confidence and a clear conscience. From our commitment to source our products legally and from ethical suppliers, to our reforestation efforts, to our efforts to continuously make our day-to-day business more green, Young Living products are a choice you can feel great about.
  29. Seed to Seal and its three pillars—Sourcing, Science, and Standards—are at the core of everything we do, designed to provide a full line of pristine, effective products that you can rely on with confidence. And although we lead the industry with our unique, unyielding commitment to quality, we’re not done yet, because ours is a total commitment to continuous improvement. We have spent two decades innovating, and we plan to continue tirelessly pursuing an ever-higher standard that we set for ourselves. A product is only as good as the program that created it, and our program just keeps getting better.
