1. Every essential oil Young Living distills or sources has the optimal naturally-occurring blend of constituents to maximize the desired therapeutic effect.
2. Young Living is able to make this assertion because our strict cultivation process – illustrated by the Four Ps – guarantees the optimal potency of every Young Living essential oil.
The key to producing true Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oils begins with each plant. An oil’s potency can be affected not only by selecting the proper plant to cultivate, but also where the plant is grown, the quality of soil in which the seed is planted, and even the time of day it’s harvested.
Young Living’s therapeutic-grade standards prohibit the acceptance of any diluted, cut, or adulterated oils. Every oil Young Living produces meets strict purity standards.
Every batch of essential oils is subjected to rigorous, state-of-the-art analysis at the Young Living chemistry lab. Using some of the most advanced equipment in the world, our scientists subject every batch of essential oils to gas chromatograph and mass spectrometer testing, and heavy metals analysis. Oils that exhibit even the slightest hint of possible adulteration or tampering are rejected.
In order to continuously assess our oil testing procedures, Young Living regularly sends oil samples to independent labs for analysis. The findings of these trusted laboratories, coupled with years of experience analyzing essential oils, are what enable us to properly calibrate our testing equipment and effectively analyze the results.
Potency means that the naturally occurring compounds contained in each essential oil product are the highest and most consistent bioactive levels.
Ensuring that the various standards encapsulated in the Plants, Preparation, Purity, and Potency approach is the essence of the Young Living therapeutic-grade standard. Without strict adherence to high quality standards in the first three areas, the final product would not have the necessary potency to create the desired therapeutic effect.
In the end, what truly sets Young Living apart is our adherence to our own therapeutic-grade standards. Through every step of the way, the Four P’s ensure that Young Living products are truly therapeutic-grade from start to finish.
