Young Living essential oils appeared in my life by chance. Except I don’t believe in chance.
So let’s call it serendipity or good luck, or a blessing. You can find out more about my story here…
Why Young Living? You might well ask.
Why don’t I just buy oils from the grocery store shelf or from one of those other internet companies?
The answer to those questions and many more lies in Young Living’s commitment to quality and purity. And to the wellness of body, mind, and spirit.
And that’s proved to be true for me and my family.
And the Seed to Seal practices (which I’ll explain a little later) means that each oil has to pass stringent testing to ensure that bioactive, natural compounds are available in each bottle and each product.
Young Living has its own internal labs as well as third-party audits to verify international standards of purity. I love that.
Here’s my top 4 reasons for using Young Living essential oils and products.
1. Greater than organic. 100% pure. 100% genuine.
I know that sounds a little strange, organic is pretty good, right? But did you know that the standard for labelling something organic, according to the USDA simply means it has to have been grown in soil without prohibited substances for 3 years prior to harvest?
And that it only needs to contain 95% of an organic product. What does that say about the other 5%?
Well they could have synthetics added, molecules which detract from the purity of the oil.
Which to me makes them pretty useless.
Pretty aroma maybe, but not as nature intended.
Young Living doesn’t farm on land that hasn’t been organic for not just 3 years, try 50!
And they created Seed to Seal practices, which means they have a higher standard than FDA .
Believe it or not some of the FDA approved pesticides for organic farming means chemicals are still being used. Not good enough for YL.
Simply put Seed to Seal is a guarantee that YL essential oils are carefully supervised from the time the seed is planted to when the oil is sealed in a bottle. Ensuring the quality and purity of each drop of these therapeutic grade essential oils.
If you think seeing a ‘certified organic’ label on an essential oil is all you need to know about quality and purity, you’d be so wrong. There are no government regulations on oils in the U.S.A.
And sadly the FDA actually don’t differentiate between plant derived ingredients, synthetic or not and pure, healthy essential oils.
Basically then it matters not a jot that an essential oil is labeled ‘organic’ because it doesn’t make it pure and natural as nature intended. Whereas seed to seal practices ensure unmatched quality, purity and integrity of the product.
2. Farming and distillation
Farming and distillation are really important stuff to ensure purity and quality of products.
Young Living are one of the few companies that own their own farms and distill their oils onsite.
Which means they have 100% control over their product. And you can even visit the farms and distillery if you’re interested. I know I have. And it was soooo impressive.
They also purchase from farms directly whose practices meet Young Living’s high Seed to Seal quality restrictions. They form co-operatives, and have close knit partnerships with farmers so they can maintain the integrity, potency and unmatched quality of their products.
3. Potency Take a whiff of Young Living Lavender and you’ll be amazed. It’s not like most other Lavender oils that you’ve used before. And that my lovelies is because these oils are the real deal. I even know some people who keep a bottle of Lavender on their desk so they can inhale it throughout their day because it makes them feel happy.
I love to diffuse Lavender in my home…and everyone who comes through the front door always has something to say, not only about the fragrance in our house, but also that the energy ‘feels’ good.
I will add that not every oil smells this sweet. But that’s because of the plants used, and at the end of the day not every plant smells like flowers!
But the benefits of using these potent, powerful therapeutic grade essential oils far outweigh the fact that they don’t all smell like roses.
I don’t like the smell of Digize very much, but the other day when I was feeling a bit nauseous…maybe something disagreed with me…I can’t say…what I can say is that a couple of drops of Digize and a drop of Ginger oil rubbed on my stomach and I felt fine in no time.
I love it, not because it smells that great, but because it works! And bonus… it’s all natural.
4. Abundance of products
Along with their 80+ single oils and even more blends, YL has a dietary product called “Vitality” that contain an incredible number of health and wellness goodies. Check out the current product guide here.
And as if that wasn’t enough, they have an abundance of products infused with essential oils.
Products that support you to get healthy and fit.
Products for personal and beauty care…all infused with the purest essential oils.
An entire line of the powerful super-fruit wolf berries…also known as Gogi berries. We love the NingXia Red nutritional drinks.
Products to support your healthy weight management efforts.
Products for babies. I’ll let you into a little secret I use the YL Seedling line wipes to remove my makeup…it’s super gentle and kind to my face. Not to mention it’s quick and easy!
And then there are products for your pets.
When I say it’s an abundance of oil infused products, I think you see what I mean.
And the final thing I want to add about Why Young Living are my personal go-to Company for a health home and life for me and my family is the contribution they’ve made and continue to make to our personal overall wellbeing.

Hubby keeps a stash of his much used and much loved products and we have products in just about every room of the house…be they diffusers, products for the bathroom, the kitchen or the bedroom.
We are so thrilled with what this company has done for us and want to share it with everyone we know and love…and also to be there to support and encourage those on their own journey to health, balance, abundance and wellness in every area of their life.
