A Visit to the Farm!

I had the privilege of going on an all expense paid trip to Young Living's beautiful farm in Provo Utah last month.

While I have heard about their incredible Seed to Seal guarantee, seeing every step of the growing, distillation, filtering, testing and bottling process up close was amazing!!!

I walked through Lavender, Oregano and hyssop fields in the most beautiful valley by gorgeous mountains!

I spoke with a Young Living worker in a greenhouse while he hand sifted seeds from the plants for next year's crop.

Gary Young gave us a tour of the distillery, explaining how he designed and welded the huge distillers himself! He shared about all the intricacies of the process and how they've continued to improve upon the process, until the essential oils contain the purest and highest levels of constituents and beneficial properties.

I got to see the entire process with Juniper. I touched and smelled the Juniper plant material.
The Juniper plant material is placed in these steam distillers.
After the steam distiller, the Juniper oil goes continues in the distilling and filtering process.
 I walked into a room with overwhelming powerful aroma of large drums of Peppermint, Juniper and Clary Sage oil. We could have reached in and touched it! Of course, we didn't!

 The oil from the large drums was poured into this filtration device and tested, 
before being sent to bottling process. 
 "Quality is not negotiable" was a theme throughout the entire farm! Everything is done with the higher level of care and excellence so that we get the absolute best and most beneficial oils! 
Young Living essential oils are definitely set apart!

The highlight of this amazing retreat was getting to know amazing oily natural health like-minded friends! I learned so much from my time with them and am thankful for my new friends!!
