Celebrating 20 Years of Young Living Essential Oil Authority

Combining an unyielding commitment to authenticity and a deep passion for discovery, Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young has spent 20 years making us the leading authority on essential oils. From revolutionizing essential oil quality through our proprietary Seed to Seal process, creating a body of groundbreaking research and scholarship, and hand-selecting respected professionals for the Scientific Advisory Council, Young Living has established itself as the last word in essential oils for two decades and counting.

Seed to Seal Process

No other company goes to the painstaking lengths we do to produce consistently pure, authentic essential oils, just the way nature intended. Our production process is known as Seed to Seal, and it involves five crucial steps: Seed, Cultivate, Distill, Test, and Seal. Each step draws on our years of expertise and is designed to ensure superior, authentic essential oils that you and your family can count on. To learn more about this process, visit SeedtoSeal.com.

Research and Discovery

Each year Gary takes undertakes multiple expeditions throughout the world to continue his mission of essential oil discovery. These trips have led to the distillation of exotic, limited-edition essential oils such as Hong Kuai, Yuzu, Mastrante, and Frereana Frankincense and Young Living exclusives such as Idaho Blue Spruce and Eucalyptus Blue. In his travels to Ecuador alone, Gary has discovered and distilled dozens of rare Amazonian plants.

Besides ongoing discovery efforts, we continuously research the wellness potential of both rare and commonly used essential oils. Studies by Gary and our research staff appear in scientific journals, and Gary has written a number of books on his essential oil findings. We offer many resources for learning about this research, including our annual conventions, Young Living Introductory Meetings, and other Young Living events where you can get all the most current essential oil information.
