SEED TO SEAL - but aren't all oils the same?
No! I used to think that too!
🌱 Many are adulterated with synthetic ingredients, not distilled correctly, or completely synthetic. This means you won’t receive the true benefits of a therapeutic grade essential oil.
🙀 Some companies even using clever marketing terms to make you think that theirs are specially certified. However as the industry is relatively unregulated, this is no-one that certifies them.
🙄 Synthetic oils or oils that are not distilled correctly can actually cause issues, so it is incredibly important to know that the company you are trusting is transparent and can show you the whole process.
👉 Any company can say their oils are ‘pure’. However it is completely different for a company to ‘show’ you they are pure.
🙀 You can have an oil that smells beautiful, however it main be ‘empty’ of all of the important constituents, and therefore have no beneficial effects.
🌱 As Young Living is the original, and have over 30 years worth of research - this means they are the holders of the largest library of Essential Oil Samples and data for testing in the world.
🌱 Being the pioneers in the essential oil industry means that they have been producing essential oils longer than anyone in the industry. This means they have an incredible amount of historical data. Because of their experience, they know when their botanicals are most potent and ready to harvest. For example they can be in the fields testing lavender every 15 minutes to know the exact time for the best and most potent oil. They know of a tree that needs to be dead for a certain number of years, and to harvest at moonlight for the best yield and quality of oil. The exact time to distill Cypress to ensure the most benefits come through - whilst many competitors are simply distilling at high temperatures for short amounts of time - Young Living are distilling at low temperature sometimes for days….
🌼Ultimately the reason I completely trust Young Living is because of their Seed to Seal quality assurance promise. This ensures that every single process from choosing the seeds, to enriching the soil, to harvesting the plants, to distilling the oils - are all done to the highest of standards.
