When choosing to use Essential oils, it’s important to understand that not all oils are created equally. I encourage you to do your own research and make your own decision. Here are the BIG questions you should ask when deciding which company you will choose.
Can this company guarantee that the land used to grow their plants and herbs is free of residual herbicides, pesticides & chemicals? YOUNG LIVING CAN.
At Young Living farms, all weed control is done by hand and all pest control is done with essential oils.
Does this company own their own lab to test their oils composition? YOUNG LIVING DOES.
Not only does Young Living test their own oils, but they are also independently tested five times before bottling to make sure they are free of any pollutants, pesticides, and is Non-GMO.
Does the company ever purchase oils from outside suppliers? If so, does the company visit the farms and oil distilleries to observe the process and make sure that there are no added chemicals to the distillation and that the herbs and plants are grow completely free from contamination from herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers? YOUNG LIVING DOES.
Does the company only use crops that were harvested at their peak time? And if so, does the grower still test to make sure that the crop is at it’s peak time for harvesting? YOUNG LIVING DOES.
Does the company continuously monitor the process of distillation to make sure that the oils produced from the distillation contain all of the correct therapeutic components? YOUNG LIVING DOES.
They test their oils three times during the bottling process to make sure the compounds are at levels that make them Therapeutic-grade. Only therapeutic-grade essential oils can be medicinal and effective for healing the human body.
Can this company guarantee that oils are discarded and not sold if the quality isn’t up to grade or if mistakes were made during the distillation process that affect the quality of the oils? YOUNG LIVING DOES.
Does this company’s oil suppliers use extra solvents during the distillation process to extract extra oil from the plants? Young Living DOES NOT.
Can this company guarantee that nothing is added to the oils during the bottling? YOUNG LIVING CAN.
Young Living utilizes third-party audits to verify that purity and potency standards are consistently met and surpassed.
