Celebrate the Melissa Harvest!

It’s almost time for the annual Melissa Harvest at our farm in St. Maries, Idaho! Each year we gather to harvest this sweet-smelling herb and see Young Living’s commitment to quality in action. Grab your work gloves and join us! This is your opportunity to interact with our oils in a whole new way and see firsthand how we ensure that our oils remain pure and potent throughout our entire process.

At the harvest, you can look forward to:

Playing a vital role in our Melissa Harvest
Reconnecting with nature and a simpler way of life
Enjoying a one-day river rafting adventure
Discovering a new appreciation of Young Living’s commitment to quality and authenticity
Participating in a Raindrop Technique® training
Making new friends and lasting memories
