The Therapeutic Difference
|Young Living Lavender Harvest in St. Maries Idaho|
There is a significant difference between essential oils that simply smell good and those that are therapeutic-grade.
Independent laboratory testing proves that Young Living essential oils meet and often exceed industry requirements, and as stewards of nature’s plant remedies, Young Living maintains higher internal standards, built upon the magnitude of our own rigorous quality assurance requirements. The standard is known as “therapeutic-grade.”
In order to achieve therapeutic-grade classification, each essential oil must achieve the designation naturally, with¬out excess manipulation and refinement, and meet specific criteria in four key areas: Plants, Preparation, Purity, and Potency.
PLANTS: Young Living products are produced from the right plants, grown in exceptional soil, and harvested at exactly the right time.
PREPARATION: Honoring a strict commitment to respect and protect the time-honored methods of distillation, Young Living makes every effort to preserve “nature’s living energy” in a manner as close to its natural state as possible. Using pure mountain water free of additives, Young Living has a proprietary, stainless steel distillation process.
PURITY: Achieved through the use of quality plants and meticulous preparation (and not through ultra-refinement) our finished product is 100% pure. Young Living essential oils are unadulterated, uncut, and free of chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals.
POTENCY: To guarantee that our products exceed world standards and meet our own higher internal standards for potency, we analyze the finished oil’s phytochemical profile to ensure it delivers optimal amounts of every key plant compound.
