My oil purchases were always haphazard in the past. I bought them from GNC or the health food stores. I always knew that some brands were better than others but I for a long time I never really seriously dug into the whats and whys of it all. But when I finally did take the time to do it, one name came up over and over again -- Young Living Oils. It didn't take long to convince me that they were my oils of choice. They have a fabulous *seed to seal process*.

Seed to Seal1. Seed -Potent essential oils come from plant species that have been authenticated by Young Living experts. Species certification involves scientific research, field study, university partnerships, and on-site planting certification.
2. Cultivate – Through cultivation on the four Young Living farms, Young Living Essential Oils has mastered the creation of pure, potent essential oils. The company takes this knowledge around the world to co-op farms to certify that these farms’ growing processes meet Young Living’s strict quality standards.
3. Distill – Young Living’s proprietary low-temperature, low-pressure steam distillation process ensures that the beneficial plant compounds in every batch of essential oil remain uncompromised during the extraction process.
4. Test – Each essential oil must pass Young Living’s stringent testing to ensure the optimal bioactive natural compounds are present. Young Living uses its own internal labs, in addition to third-party audits, to verify that international purity and potency standards are met and surpassed.
5. Seal – Young Living completes the Seed to Seal process by carefully sealing each bottle of essential oil before shipping them to members worldwide.I'll be writing more on these fabulous oils and all the things you can do with them.
Bright blessings to all and
May those you pray to watch over you
