My Young Living

Hello! Thanks for showing up!

Today, December 30, 2018, I am celebrating 22 years with Young Living! That speaks volumes as to how great of a company Young Living is. They are not a fly-by-night company. The oils deliver great results. I am in it for the long haul because Young Living makes my life better.

There have been a lot of changes throughout the years. A couple of things have remained consistent:

  • The oils.
  • Young Living’s commitment to quality.

Both of those things are pretty much summed up in Young Living’s Seed to Seal process.

Here are a few noteworthy facts about Young Living:

  • 2019 marks Young Living’s 25th year in business
  • They have the largest selection of oil singles and blends
  • They own their farms and distilleries in several countries
  • Young Living uses first distillation oils ONLY
  • Each batch is tested for quality both in house and using 3rd party testing
  • No chemicals, herbicides or pesticides are used
  • Weed control is done by hoeing and by hand

Why waste time on the rest when you can have the best?

YL Partner Farm: Gihndagun

Tea Tree cultivation at Gihndagun Farm

Young Living has a new partner farm: the Gihndagun (Ghin-dah-gun) Farm in Tatham, Australia!

Young Living has joined forces with this family company, which has more than 20 years of farming experience and puts skill and thought into every step of the Tea Tree essential oil production process. As YL’s newest producer of Tea Tree essential oil, Gihndagun boasts 100 acres of rich soil that is cultivated with all-natural tree biomass, wood chips, and naturally derived fertilizer. Crops are nourished with irrigation water, which is captured and reused, as well as with licensed water accessed from a natural creek and river.

Gihndagun Farm is committed to environmental sustainability, and Young Living supports their contribution to upholding the gold standard in non-animal-tested consumer products, participating in the Australian Tea Tree Association Code of Practice, and maintaining Halal certification.

Along with regular soil testing and strict practices to ensure non-GMO standards, oils are tested at the Southern Cross University Plant Science Lab, which is globally recognized for its expertise in essential oils, before being sent to Young Living’s labs for additional testing. This is just one more way Young Living ensures that the essential oils produced meet their strict Seed to Seal® quality commitment.

The addition of partner farms, like Gihndagun, ensure that Young Living will continue to provide high-quality essential oils to families across the globe!

Fun fact about Deep Relief:
Menthol is responsible for the cooling sensation Peppermint causes when it’s applied to the skin. Menthol is a naturally occurring constituent found in Peppermint essential oil, and methyl salicylate is a naturally occurring constituent found in Wintergreen essential oil. Many commercial sports creams use a synthetic version of these constituents for their benefits and cooling effects.
