WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO OFFER THERAPEUTIC GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS?
The following is an important definition of what it means to be Young Living® Therapeutic Grade:
* It means there has been verification of the correct species when the seed was planted
* verification of the purity and manner of cultivation (no chemicals or nearby pollution, etc.)
* proper time of harvest to optimize the properties in the oils
* proper manner of distillation to capture all of the therapeutic compounds, the right chemical composition as determined by sophisticated laboratory tests
* purity of packaging–i.e. nothing added, nothing taken away, stored in light-protected containers (amber or blue bottles) of glass, ceramic, Teflon, or stainless steel, and kept in a suitable environment of appropriate temperatures
All of this is taken into account with Young Living®’s definition of “Therapeutic Grade.”
The term, “Therapeutic Grade,” applied to essential oils was originally coined and defined by Gary Young and Young Living®. Years ago some aromatherapists and competing companies criticized Young Living® for using this term saying, “there is no such term.” They were right in that no government or regulatory agency had defined the term, but Gary and Young Living® did define it.
Since Young Living® adopted the term and defined it, after first criticizing Young Living® for using it, many companies are now using this term for their own oils without defining what they mean by the word, thus implying that their oils are “just as good as Young Living®’s oils.”
That is why Young Living® has modified and Trade Marked the statement that YL oils are Young Living® Therapeutic Grade Oils™. No one but Young Living® can use that phrase to describe their essential oils.
YOUNG LIVING FARMS
By cultivating, harvesting, and distilling many of our essential oils on our very own farms, Young Living have the unique ability to verify perfection at every step of our process. Combine this with our extensive laboratory testing and independent audits, and it's no wonder that we routinely exceed our own industry-leading quality standards.
Young Living's commitment to quality doesn't stop there, however. Inspired by the fields, forests, and jungles that surround our pristine farms, Gary Young is constantly discovering new botanicals and essential oils, helping us bring more of nature's greatest gifts to people everywhere.
