WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL?
Plants contain complex and powerful substances known as assential oils. These are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. These oils protect the plants from disease, insects and enviromental toxins. They are also vital for plant growth and adaptation to the enviroment.
Essential oils have been used throughout time dating as far back as 4500 BC. From perfumes to embalming and medicinal purposes, essential oils were used in every day life for centuries. In modern days, research shows that pure esential oils have a healing effect on humans very similar to the way they protect plants.
IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY
Many oils claiming to be pure are made with harsh chemicals or produced in labs. Cheap copies often can be toxic if used for healing purposes. It is imperative to use good quality essential olis that are Therapeutic grade for healing work.
In 1989, from the humblest of beginnings, Gary Young started what would become the world's leading essential oil company on a one-quarter acre farm in Spokane, Washington.
On this small plot of ground, Gary carefully cultivated lavender and other various herbs; with his background in agriculture, the growing season soon produced a robust, healthy crop. Toward the end of the season, Gary Young built his first distiller by welding two pressure cookers together with a swan neck copper pipe. It was placed on the kitchen countertop, and the water for the cooler came from the kitchen sink. This yielded Young Living Essential Oils' first tiny batch of therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Gary and Mary Young wanted to share their love of essential oils and their potential with everyone they met. In fact, it has been Gary's mission from the start to share essential oils with the entire world. To that end, Young Living Essential Oils was born. The first office in Riverton, Utah, was a dingy, flat-roofed building built in the 1970s. It had been most recently occupied by a small church congregation and was a quarter inch short of being condemned. Repairs and refinishing were undertaken simultaneously with the demanding activity of running a business. While Gary and Mary traveled and spread the word of natural health, a few employees did their best to support the growing demand for their excellent products.
Gary Young and his company, Young Living Essential Oils, purchased land in the pristine forests of St. Maries, Idaho, to expand the acreage available for growing aromatic plants, particularly lavender. The first stationary distiller was built at St. Maries and incorporated Gary Young's pioneering research in low-pressure, low-temperature distillation. The yield of therapeutic-grade essential oils was substantially increased each successive year. The first distiller at St. Maries had a boiler capacity of just over 3,000 liters. Within four years and the addition of six more boilers, the capacity totaled over 34,000 liters!
Additional land was purchased in Mona, Utah, and Simiane-La-Rotonde, France, totaling over 2,000 acres devoted solely to the production of lavender and other aromatic herbs, thus making Young Living's farms the largest devoted to that purpose in North America and possibly the world. Fourteen boilers were built at the Mona site, which quickly became the main center of farming operations. Combined with St. Maries, the Young Living Lavender Farms own a total of over twelve distillers with boiler capacity over 115,400 liters.
The office in Riverton was quickly outgrown, affecting the move to Payson, Utah, into an old renovated schoolhouse. This drafty, brick building housed the company during several of its early growth years.
In 2003, the Lehi corporate office was opened and is the current world headquarters. Young Living Essential Oils' quest for high-quality, effective products, our generous compensation plan, and the unfailing emphasis on education has led us to be one of the fastest-growing companies in the nutraceutical industry and by far the largest supplier of therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Currently, there are offices in Europe, Japan, and Australia, with burgeoning distributor communities in Canada and South America. Young Living recently opened an office and warehouse in Great Britain to supply the needs of our European community.
Join us as Young Living pursues new vistas and scientific discoveries from around the globe. The future promises to be even more exciting than our amazing past.
