The timing of the harvest is one of the most important factors in producing therapeutic-grade oils. Great care is taken to harvest the plants at the right time of the season, and correct time of day to obtain the highest standards; changing time of the harvest can change the quality of the oil; for example, German Chamomile harvested in the morning will produce more anti-inflammatory compounds needed than if it is harvested in the afternoon. Other factors such as dew, blooms, weather conditions during the two weeks prior to harvest have an impact on the quality of the plants.

Young Living also uses cold pressing and resin tapping for select oils.


After distillation the oils undergo both internal and third party labs. They exceed international standards, and contain optimal levels of natural bio-active compounds. Highest specifications are met and if they don't, they are not sold. Young Living never accepts diluted, cut, or adulterated oils.
