What is Seed to Seal?

It’s preserving an ancient variety of lavender that has grown in France for centuries.

It’s caring for the soil of a goldenrod farm without relying on chemical herbicides and fertilisers.

It’s the ingenuity of combining the latest distillation technologies with the wisdom of time-tested techniques.

It’s the unwavering resolve to accept only the absolute purest of essential oils. 

Seed to Seal – three simple words that define everything Young Living believes in. The phrase may be simple, but it takes incredible attention to detail and a painstaking commitment from every individual in Young Living to make this exacting standard a reality. From the work of founder D. Gary Young to each farmworker who carefully cultivates and harvests our botanicals, Seed to Seal guides our efforts and shapes our character.


Powerful, effective essential oils come from seeds and plants that are verified for their essential oil potential by Young Living experts.
