Young Living Celebrates New Distillery with Ribbon-cutting Ceremony

SALT LAKE CITY—March 3, 2014 Young Living, the World Leader in Essential Oils®, recently installed a state-of-the-art distillery at its Highland Flats Tree Farm and celebrated this technological advancement with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony.

More than 100 Young Living members, employees, and community members gathered on February 15 for the event, as company Founder and CEO D. Gary Young ushered in a new era in essential oil distillation. Young began the ceremony by individually recognizing and praising the employees involved in the project, stating emphatically, “This would not have been possible without their contribution.”

Young also presented an introduction to essential oils for the benefit of the many local community members in attendance who had no previous experience with Young Living.

Young expressed his excitement to see so many new faces in the crowd, saying, “I am happy that so many community members attended. This is what I was really hoping we could do. I wanted people to come and see what we’re all about.”

The new equipment is the result of the latest innovation in distillery technology. An advanced computer program monitors both distillation chamber temperature levels and the steam-injection rate during the entire distillation process. This increased control allows Young Living, long the industry leader in essential oil quality, to further ensure the purity and potency of its products.

Aaron Raymond, Young Living’s director of information technology, remarked on the importance of this new distillery: “This is just the beginning for this type of technology. In fact, it is Gary Young’s vision to be able to remotely monitor and control the distillation process on our worldwide farms from global headquarters. This first machine is the starting point.”
