STANDARDS
Millions around the world have discovered that a drop of pure essential oil can transform lives for the better. We’re committed to establishing and maintaining the ultimate, industry-leading standard in essential oil products, so our work can continue to positively impact lives as it has for two decades. For us, the non-negotiable benchmarks for delivering a product that our members can feel great about are multifaceted, exacting, and—above all—concrete. We’re proud to offer an extensive line of authentic, essential oil-infused solutions that represent the best of nature—purity without compromise—through the standards of our groundbreaking Seed to Seal® program.
Our members have always embraced Seed to Seal as a series of rigorous quality control steps. Seed to Seal is our set of standards that ensures you and your family are enjoying the benefits of our global resources, industry leadership and 23 years of innovation with every targeted supplement, skin care solution and pure essential oil you use. With Seed to Seal, you’re guaranteed a pristine final product that you know has been created with conscientious sourcing, science and standards.

These three aspects of production contain our concrete steps for delivering transformative, innovative and pure products to you. A product is only as good as the process that created it, and we’re committed to a quality process far beyond all industry expectations to transform your life for the better.

Because synthetics, contaminants, cheap fillers and unethical production practices are not an option for the products in your home, Young Living Executive Vice President of Operations Lauren Walker guides the process of sourcing products - from carefully vetted suppliers to extensive product testing. If our exhaustive tests show that a product doesn’t meet our standards, we don’t buy it or we reject the batch.
Partnership Principles
We source from our corporate-owned farms, as well as partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. This empowers us to source conscientiously and with sensitivity to local communities and ecosystems. We evaluate and select our like-minded suppliers according to five principles: Established Relationships, Seed to Seal Specifications, Binding Agreements, Stringent Testing, and Ongoing Audits. Learn more about our five partnership principles.
Formulation and Production
Our superior oils and ingredients deserve facilities and formulas to match. Our expanded distribution centre in Spanish Fork, Utah, is a state-of-the-art facility where we use manufacturing best practices to test essential oils, ingredients and products, and to formulate and manufacture the innovative offerings you love.
Third-Party Substantiation
When it comes to our partnerships, we trust but verify. To ensure that inferior or unethically sourced ingredients don’t find their way to your door, we use an extensive, full-access system of internal and third-party audits to monitor our supply chain.
We insist on essential oils, products and ingredients that have passed our stringent, unyielding quality benchmarks. Pure, genuine, effective ingredients that meet our scientific standards are more expensive. Formulating innovative offerings takes time. But we know you’ll appreciate authentic products that you can rely on without a second thought.
Industry-Leading Research
While our product quality starts in the fields, it’s proven in the lab with research led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch. With his team’s extensive experience, they use advanced testing processes in our state-of-the-art labs to ensure that an inferior product never slips by.
Third-Party Testing
Product testing doesn’t take place exclusively in-house. We also test product samples as needed with two independent, respected and accredited labs that employ certified chemical analysts.
Innovative Product Development
We create our pure, effective formulas with the cleanest and most innovative ingredients available. We also focus on what’s not in the formulas. We’ve developed an expanding list of potentially harmful or harsh additives that may appear in mainstream products but will never be found in our line. Get all the ingredients you want and none of the ones you don’t.
As the leader of the modern essential oils movement, it’s part of our stewardship to do business responsibly—from sustainably sourcing rare botanicals, to uplifting local communities, and going above and beyond to comply with local environmental rules. The goal? Offering a pure product that you know is part of a greater good.
Top-Tier Standards
Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated or unethically sourced. This is why we choose to partner with known sources that produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally setting a top-tier standard for sustainability.
Sustainable Compliance Program
Not only is our compliance program exhaustive, but it’s also the first of its kind in the industry. It is the gold standard for compliance programs and we are proud to have gone above and beyond to establish it. We have engaged top legal experts around the world to keep us advised of the most current laws and how they apply to our most important business needs. The program ultimately determines several specific legal factors associated with botanical harvesting in order to protect delicate landscapes, plants and wildlife. This includes knowing where and how much to plant and harvest, and more. These steps provide even more evidence that Young Living is the industry leader in compliance.
Industry Green Leader
Our meticulous efforts go beyond a conscientious supply chain. Young Living’s commitment to sustainable business includes reforestation of harvested trees; recycling at Young Living offices; and the construction of our brand new, LEED-certified headquarters in Lehi, Utah.
