2019 Northern Lights Winter Experience

Experience our Seed to Seal® quality commitment firsthand at our 2019 Northern Lights Winter Experience at the Young Living Northern Lights Farm in Ft. Nelson, British Columbia! This immersive event gives you the unique opportunity to see firsthand what it takes to ensure our oils are the purest and most potent available—and when we say firsthand, we mean it! Participants will play a vital role in the creation of our essential oils and learn our 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 way again.
Young Living Northern Lights Farm
Located in northern British Columbia, the Northern Lights Farm’s harsh climate is ideal for cultivating hardy, essential oil-rich trees—a key factor in Gary’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 like Valor II™, Shutran™, and Harmony™. The nutrient-rich soil is also ideal for cultivating ledum and yarrow, which grow naturally throughout the area.
