Seed to Seal Partnership Principle

Young Living believes that authenticity matters.

Essential oils are more than just what’s in the bottle. Quality starts at the source. Discover Young Living’s two-decade story of partnership with nature and industry leadership and see why our products set the standard for purity that you can smell and feel.

As part of your wellness journey, we invite you to discover how pure, authentic essential oils and essential oil-infused products are the core of who we are.

We dedicate significant resources to providing the purest oils possible. Purity starts on the farm, and we proudly source our essential oils from corporate farms, partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. These locations embrace our Partnership Principles program to help ensure the purity of our oils at every point in the supply chain. Young Living believes that authenticity matters. As part of your wellness journey, we invite you to discover how pure, authentic essential oils are the core of who we are.

Step 1

ESTABLISHED RELATIONSHIPS

Our Sourcing and Executive teams have been hand-selecting renowned suppliers of premium botanicals and building relationships with them for decades. We continue to foster and expand these relationships.

Step 2

SEED TO SEAL SPECIFICATIONS

All farms—whether a partner farm, Seed to Seal-certified supplier, or our very own corporate farms—sign declarations that they will seed, cultivate, and distill to our strict Seed to Seal specifications.

Step 3

BINDING AGREEMENTS

We back up these signed Seed to Seal declarations with legally binding contracts that require our partners to deliver on those declarations.

Step 4

STRINGENT TESTING

We have spent millions of dollars on a state-of-the-art lab with cutting-edge testing instruments, as well as a team of researchers with a combined 180 years of experience led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch, a widely respected analytical scientist. If this team finds that a supplier’s oil doesn’t meet our demanding standards, it never reaches our warehouse. Each test is carefully recorded in our library of historical testing data, the largest of its kind in the world.

Step 5

ONGOING AUDITS

In addition to its testing, Young Living verifies the quality of our oils via audits of our supply chain members. Our intricate global sourcing network is designed to bring our members superior products, and we are proud to have implemented an objective audit process.

Why insist on these demanding, expensive practices? Because for Young Living, the big picture doesn’t have much to do with the bottom line. We’re driven to make the world a better place by sharing the benefits of pure essential oils. If we’re not bringing families authentic quality, we’re not bringing them authentic benefits.

We’re proud of our legacy and remain as motivated as ever to continue expanding our message. Want to join the modern essential oils movement? Share this story on social media and help us get the word out about why and how Young Living insists on authenticity!
