Therapeutic-grade: the Young Living StandardThere is a significant difference between essential oils that simply smell good and those that are therapeutic-grade.
Independent laboratory testing proves that Young Living essential oils meet and often exceed industry requirements, and as stewards of nature’s plant remedies, Young Living maintains higher internal standards, built upon the magnitude of our own rigorous Quality Assurance
requirements. This standard is known as “therapeutic-grade.” In order to achieve therapeutic-grade classification, each essential oil must achieve the designation naturally, without excess manipulation and refinement, and meet specific criteria in four key areas: Plants, Preparation, Purity, and Potency.
- PLANTS Young Living products are produced from the right plants, grown in exceptional soil, and harvested at exactly the right time.
- PREPARATION Honoring a strict commitment to respect and protect the time-honored methods of distillation, Young Living makes every effort to preserve “nature’s living energy” in a manner as close to its natural state as possible. Using pure mountain water free of additives, Young Living has a proprietary, stainless steel distillation process that uses low temperature and low pressure to better preserve plant properties, capture the pure essence of the plant, and preserve the quality of the oils.
- PURITY Achieved through the use of quality plants and meticulous preparation, and not through ultra-refinement, our finished product is 100% pure. Young Living essential oils are unadulterated, uncut, and free of chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals.
- POTENCY To guarantee our products exceed existing world standards and meet our own higher internal standards for potency, we analyze the finished oil’s phytochemical profile to ensure it delivers optimal amounts of every key plant compound.

Why do we need Essential Oils?Because our chemically enhanced lives are making us weak, compromising our immunity, and our ability to live a healthy, energetic, long life.
Because our drugs, cleaning products, soaps and shampoos, air fresheners, deodorants, fast food, designer nutrients and recreational drugs are full of chemicals that are foreign to us, and they are making us sick!
Because our air, water and soil have been filled with the chemical by-products of industry, which were never meant for human consumption.
Because nature has solutions for these problems!
Essential oils are nature's perfect solutions for body, mind, and spirit.
Essential oils are nature's perfect solutions for the problems that chemicals, poor nutrition and stress have added to our lives.
Just a few drops at a time can calm us down, help us to focus, relieve the tensions we all inevitably face. They can relax our muscles, improve our digestion, help us get a fantastic night's sleep, or remember what we need to remember. They can make us strong in the face of challenges, whether mental, emotional, psychological, or physical. They can help us build up our immune systems, loosen our joints, and enhance our ability to heal on all fronts. They can help to purify our bodies of chemical toxins as well as the air we breathe. They connect us with nature.
D. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living Essential Oils, suggests that essential oils may even be "the missing link" to having optimal health…the link we left behind when pharmaceuticals and synthetics came into the market place and replaced our "quaint" country ways.
The fragrant molecules of pure essential plant oils have been with us since our beginning. They "speak" to us of the essence of life and the way to be in harmony with it. They re-connect us with nature's holistic design for wellness, in body, mind, and spirit. They put the power of wellness in our own hands, lift our spirits and help to open our hearts. They teach us to breathe, relax, and reach out to other people. That's why we need them now...possibly more than ever.
History of Essential OilsYoung Living’s Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the historical account of four thieves in France who protected themselves from the black plague with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing victims of the killer disease. When captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret recipe. Young Living’s proprietary Thieves oil blend includes clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata and has been specially blended to offer the same kind of defense. Thieves has been university tested and found to be highly effective against airborne bacteria.1
Utilizing the power and protection of Thieves essential oil blend, Young Living created an extensive line of natural household products. From toothpaste and mouthwash to cleaning products, hand soaps, and even throat lozenges, the Thieves product line provides safe, natural alternatives for use in the home.

Over the last ten years, because of my training and experience as an environmental consultant, I’ve had the unique opportunity to gather some very interesting data on black toxic mold. The analysis of the data collected has led me to conclude that certain therapeutic-grade essential oils and blends are more effective, and far less dangerous than conventional toxic mold remedies. -– Edward R Close, PhDA Mold
