Young Living's Seed to Seal® Process
Young Living offers the purest therapeutic-grade essential oils by carefully controlling the entire Seed to Seal® process - from the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle. Young Living's dedication to quality ensures that they provide pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils with the complete, optimal blend of plant chemicals to ensure maximum potency and results.
The Seed to Seal® process covers five crucial steps:
Potent essential oils come from plant species that have been authenticated by Young Living and industry experts through scientific research, field study, university partnerships, and on-site planting certification. Selecting seeds that produce the highest therapeutic value is a vital first step in the Seed to Seal® process.
Young Living's knowledge of soil preparation, balance of sun and water, responsible weed and pest control, and wild-craft harvesting ensures that stringent standards are met. Young Living continues to conduct research and remain dedicated to growing the highest quality aromatic plants.
Young Living's proprietary low-temperature, low-pressure steam distillation process ensures that the beneficial plant compounds in every batch of essential oil remain uncompromised during the extraction process. This process is completed at just the right time to ensure all beneficial constituents are present to maximize the quality of the oil.
Each batch of distilled oil passes through stringent testing - at Young Living's own internal labs and in third-party audits - to ensure its purity and potency. Each oil is tested during various stages of distillation to determine the release of different plant constituents.
Young Living completes the Seed to Seal® process by carefully sealing and inspecting each bottle of essential oil at their own clean-room facility and shipping to members worldwide. Individual bottle labels are encoded with detailed tracking information that allows Young Living to trace each bottle of essential oil back to its source.
