Here are just a few ways of how Young Living goes above and beyond anyone else.

* The farm manager, Nicholas Landel of the Young Living farm in France, has been working hard to find ways to ensure the fields don’t need any pesticides and that our farms maintain better than organic practices. He tried goats but they ate the lavender plants. He tried a few different breeds of sheep and they ate the lavender plants too. He finally found a specific breed of sheep that eat everything EXCEPT the lavender plants! And they provide really natural organic fertilizer.

* Young Living ensures that our farms never have children working on them. They found that on our Bulgaria partner farm, gypsies were often coming into the area and working on the farm with their children. Young Living gave the farm a grant to build a school and to hire a teacher so that when the gypsies come into town, the children can get a free education and are not providing child labor.

* Young Living AIR-ships their essential oils from the farms all over the world. It costs more vs shipping it via freighter or ship. The reason why is so that there are less touch points for the oils so that Young Living maintains control of their essential oils at all times.

* Young Living is a debt-free company. Our headquarters in Utah is the greenest building in the entire state of Utah. There is a water filtration system for all of the employees that cost over $1 million dollars. No plastic water bottles are allowed in the building. They use gray water for the landscaping outside and inside the building.

* Our warehouse got rid of their dumpster. Everything in the warehouse is now recycled or reused! Nothing goes to the landfill. No other essential oil company goes to these lengths to ensure their oils are the cleanest and most pure on the market AND the most sustainable supply with fair trade practices.

If you’re using essential oils, make sure you know the heart of the company you’re buying from. Once you do the research you will want to choose Young Living!

Young Living owns and operates large farms all over the world all of which were clean and free of chemicals for at least 50 years before Young Living agreed to buy the land. 

Young Living also has small labs on their farms to test the plants right from the field as they mature to determine the exact season and time of day to harvest the crop for the best oil. 

When they purchase from other growers and suppliers, they not only make initial site visits to verify that the oils are being produced and packaged properly, but they have a program of making repeated visits from time to time to make sure the standards are being upheld.

Young Living distills oils at minimum pressures and temperatures to gently coax the oil and all of its compounds into the finished product. High pressure/high temperature distillation may produce an oil with the fragrance compounds of an oil, but not with the therapeutic compounds. Young Living never uses solvents to finish off the distilling process as many companies do. Many of the techniques and skills applied in growing and distilling Young Living oils are trade secrets.

Young Living oils are bottled as they emerge from the still in their complete natural state without adulteration (adding compounds) or refinement (removing compounds).

If you ever get the opportunity, visit a Young Living farm and distillery and you will begin to see for yourself the care and dedication it takes to produce the finest essential oils in the world. You won't find another company that maintains such meticulous standards from "seed to seal" as does Young Living.  

In the U.S. only 5% real oil needs to be present to be labeled "100% Pure". Just another reason why you want to be using only Young Living. You won't get the same results with any other brand of essential oils. Many people who have tried other brands and did not see results thought that essential oils were a waste of money until they tried Young Living essential oils.

Every essential oil is made up of compounds that are unique to that oil which make the oil therapeutic. For example, cypress oil has 280 known compounds. If the oil is distilled for 20 hours, only 20 of the properties are present in the oil. If the oil is distilled for 26 hours, zero properties appear. Correctly distilling cypress for 24 hours allows all of the 280 compounds to be present. Young Living is the largest essential oil grower and distiller in the world.

Young Living tests every batch of essential oils in triplicate two times during the production process. There are up to twenty different tests that are done. After passing the tests the oil goes to bottling and is tested again, all tests in triplicate. It takes 20 people just over a week to test each batch.

Young Living’s operations currently have a daily capacity of producing more than 500,000 bottles of oil.

Why choose Young Living for forever money?
One of the most well known and successful people in network marketing has chosen Young Living. He has been in network marketing for decades as a distributor and owner of his own network marketing company. He is on the ethics committee of the Direct Selling Association. In 2017 he decided to sell his network marketing company and become a distributor again. He could have chosen any company to join. Which one did he join? Young Living! So why did he choose Young Living? The network marketing company he owned was doing fine and growing. He was even about to buy another network marketing company but decided "no" to that and instead became a distributor with Young Living. So here are the reasons why out of all the network marketing companies he chose Young Living.

The first reason has to do with the number one. Young Living has one owner, one family who owns it, which is very important to the long term viability of a company. Gary and Mary Young started Young Living. Gary passed away in 2018 and Mary Young is the owner. One of the exciting things about network marketing is building it once and getting paid over and over again on that one time effort, month after month, year after year, forever. Asset income that you can pass on for generations to come. That won't happen if the company goes out of business. The more owners a company has the more problems, the more arguments, the more challenges with making decisions, the more egos involved, and owners can end up suing each other which can involve a lengthy legal battle. Things may not get done because people don't agree. The agenda of Young Living is the same today as it was when the company was started in 1994, getting the very best products into every home in the world thus making the world a better place. The heart of Gary and Mary Young has always been doing what is the best for the members. Over and over their commitment has been proven. Mary Young is committed to the members and for each person who chooses to build a business, for them to get paid forever!

The second reason has to do with the number 27. Young Living has 27 years of experience and growth. They have a 27 year track record. Most companies make lots of promises, however, you can't bank on promises. What means something is proof. Young Living has 27 years of proof, 27 years of "no matter what" Young Living will do what it takes and will never compromise when it comes to doing the best for people and the planet. Everyone gets to build a team and in turn a business from the moment they get started. Everyone! What a blessing, what a gift.

The third reason has to do with the number 30. Young Living has had amazing growth. The last couple of years Young Living has had about a 30% annual growth rate. No other company in network marketing has ever had this kind of growth rate at this stage of maturity. Companies that have been around as long as Young Living have either plateaued or had small growth but not the 30% that Young Living has. Revenue has grown over 800% over the past five years.

The fourth reason has to do with the number 90. 90% of the sales of Young Living are still in North America. If you look at any other network marketing company that has been around for awhile 50%-90% of their sales are outside of North America. Can you see the huge potential worldwide for Young Living and for you!? This very successful network marketer sold his company because he saw Young Living as the future, as what will be the number one network marketing company in the world.

The fifth reason has to do with the number 40. This very successful network marketer saw something that he had never seen before. He had not even seen it in his own company. The reorder rate month after month of products with Young Living's members averages around 40%. Meaning 40% of the members order month after month. That is how you get forever money. People love the products, they love the results, and order month after month, year after year. You can have lots of people join your team but if they don't reorder again you are simply spinning your wheels and you will never have forever money. The company he owned and ended up selling had an 8% reorder rate. The other billion dollar companies in network marketing have maybe a reorder rate of 1%-5% while Young Living is at around 40%! They all should be as smart as this successful network marketer and close their doors and join Young Living!

The sixth reason has to do with family. Young Living has a totally different culture than any other network marketing company. Young Living is not your typical network marketing company. Young Living has a culture of family. It feels like you are part of a large worldwide family. People who have been involved with other companies see and feel the difference. It's like a breath of fresh air and how network marketing is meant to be done.

Anyone can build a business with Young Living. It doesn't mean you will, it means you can. Anyone can learn the simple steps for success. Anyone can believe they can succeed. You get to choose what you want to believe. Amazing abundance is available to you in all areas with Young Living. I hope you choose it because you deserve it.

In 1990 the very successful network marketer met with Gary Young. This person had been successful in network marketing for a number of years as a distributor and now had his own network marketing company. Gary was asking for his advice as Gary wanted to start his own network marketing company. The successful network marketer could see that Gary was starting from nothing and did not have all the trappings of wealth that are used to impress others to get them to join a venture. That successful network marketer told Gary that he didn't think that Gary could make it and advised against him starting a network marketing company. Gary Young did it anyway and 27 years later that very successful network marketer joined Young Living! Don't let it take you 27 years. Join us today!
