Young Living Therapeutic Grade: The Plants

I have been using Young Living's EOs in my home and massage studio for almost a decade. They truly are the "Cadillac" line of therapeutic-grade essential oils. The consistency in quality and benefits is second to none. I decided long ago to pass on the cheaper, inferior, or just "ok" aromatherapy and stay with the best!

The goal of Young Living Essential Oils has always been to share the health benefits of essential oils with the world. This goal involves knowing which essential oils are truly therapeutic-grade and which are inferior.

Every essential oil Young Living distills or sources has the optimal naturally-occurring blend of plant chemicals to maximize the desired therapeutic effect. When Young Living inspects potential oils from partner distilleries, more than 70% fail to meet their stringent standard for potency.

Let's take a look at the the Four P's that guarantee the optimal potency of every Young Living essential oil:

Plants
Preparation
Purity
Potency

PLANTS

The key to producing true Young Living Therapeutic Grade (YLTG) essential oils begins with each plant. An oil's potency can be affected not only by selecting the proper plant to cultivate, but also where the plant is grown, the quality of soil in which the seed is planted, and even the time of day it is harvested.

Young Living has extensive experience selecting the correct species of plant for desired oil potency, planting under the optimal conditions, using ideal soil and natural methods to encourage growth, and knowing the precise time to harvest each crop. They select only those plants that produce the most active and widest array of therapeutic chemical constituents. Only plants that meet that standard are used, otherwise no amount of preparation can extract YLTG oils.

Young Living will continue to perfect growing and harvesting techniques using their network of farms in Idaho, Utah, France, and Ecuador.
