Seed to Seal. You will probably hear that phrase mentioned a lot in the future. It is the foundation; the very base Young Living was built on. What Seed to Seal means is that Young Living controls the entire process of producing these pure, therapeutic grade oils; from carefully selecting the seeds they plant, to ensuring the highest standards through the cultivation and growing process, to using innovative distilling of the oils to preserve their precious constituents, then testing each oil they’ve distilled to make sure they meet stringent standards, all the way to bottling and sealing each oil to make sure you receive the very best essential oil available for you and your family. Young Living owns its own farms, its own distilleries, and its own laboratories to achieve the highest quality control standards. Because of all of this, we can rest assured that Young Living won't allow a substandard product to leave its facilities.
Young Living owns fields all over the world: Utah, Idaho, Canada, France, and Ecuador, just to name a few. They've made the decision to grow plants in their indigenous region. So, for example, Frankincense is harvested from the resin growing on trees in Oman. Why would we want or expect anything less from a wellness company than the very best product possible? Additionally, Young Living’s oils are highly concentrated with no fillers added to the bottle. They use the first distillation while other companies use the fifth or sixth press. Look at it this way - if you were making a pot of coffee, the first pot you brew will be very strong. The perfect cup of coffee, really. If you use the same filter, filled with the same (now used) grounds, the next pot won't be as strong. Good, maybe...but not great. It's the same with essential oils. So, in essence, when other companies are using the sixth press, there won't be much left to squeeze out of the plant. They have to use fillers and add other preservatives and chemicals to fill the bottle. Young Living isn't like that - they use the first press, and they fill your bottle with only essential oils. For most of us, Seed to Seal is the reason we chose Young Living. As Young Living says, “It's more than a slogan, it's a promise!” For more information on Seed to Seal, go to: seedtoseal.com
