Northern Lights Winter Experience

Experience the Sourcing pillar of Young Living’s Seed to Seal® quality commitment in action at our 2018 Northern Lights Winter Experience. This immersive event gives you an opportunity unlike any other, where you can see what it takes to ensure that our oils are the purest and most potent available. Participants will play a vital role in the creation of our essential oils and learn harvest and distillation methods. Join us and discover a new appreciation for Young Living’s commitment to quality and authenticity. You’ll never look at a bottle of essential oil the same again!
Young Living Northern Lights Farm
Located in northern British Columbia, the Northern Lights Farm has a harsh climate that is ideal for cultivating hardy, essential oil-rich trees, including Black spruce—a key factor in Young Living Founder Gary Young’s selection of the area. Black Spruce essential oil reflects the character of the trees from which it is distilled, echoing their resilient and deeply rooted strength, and making it a key ingredient in many of our most popular blends such as Valor II™, Shutran™, and Harmony™. The nutrient-rich soil is also ideal for cultivating ledum and yarrow, which grow naturally throughout the area.
