Lehi, Utah—December 7, 2018
—Young Living Essential Oils
, the world leader in essential oils, announced today that the Vida de Seville Distillery in Alamaden de la Plata, Seville, Spain will become the company’s newest partner. The Vida de Seville Distillery will provide Young Living with Cistus, Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils, and its zero-waste status aligns with one of Young Living’s 5×5 Pledge
goals of bringing all its operations to zero-waste status by 2024.
Located an hour away from Seville city, the Vida de Seville Distillery sits on the edge of the Sierra Norte Nature Park, where the vicinity’s well-preserved nature offers pure, raw plant materials.
Young Living is the only essential oils company to have its own farms. By sourcing 100 percent of its oils from its corporate farms, partner farms and Seed to Seal®-certified suppliers, Young Living has total visibility of the production into its oils from seeding and cultivating to harvesting and distilling.
“Wherever Young Living puts down roots, it’s important that we’re partnered with companies that share our commitments to community, the environment and the best nature has to offer,” said Lauren Walker
, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Young Living Essential Oils. “Young Living has grown a strong relationship with the Vida de Seville Distillery since the owners first met our late founder D. Gary Young over 20 years ago. Through this decades-long relationship, we’ve seen that they are distillation masters and their passion for nature and giving back to others mirrors Young Living’s.”
The Vida de Seville Distillery workers go above and beyond to use sustainable methods by using traditional methods to handpick wildcrafted cistus in the Sierra Nature Park. This is done in collaboration with the Regional Ministry of the Environment and the Organization of the Andalusian Territory to better manage Cistus growth in the area.
All aspects of the Vida de Seville Distillery’s process are monitored and maintained in partnership through quality control practices and testing. An independent audit also ensures that all essential oils produced meet Young Living’s strict Seed to Seal® quality commitment.
As the world leader in essential oils and a renowned essential oils distiller, Young Living is continually improving its farms and global partnerships while staying committed to the Seed to Seal quality commitment. Young Living is dedicated to creating pure, high-quality essential oils and products through environmentally conscious methods.
