Young Living’s Seed to Seal Guarantee

Young Living’s Seed to Seal Guarantee

With a vision “to bring Young Living Essential Oils to every home in the world”, no other essential oil company has been around longer than Young Living.  Nor does any other company enforce the same strict principles on their corporate farms, partner farms or Seal-certified suppliers. I love that the company I represent carries a SEED TO SEAL GUARANTEE with every product they produce and package.  Young Living introduced the Seed to Seal promise as a symbol of the commitment they have to provide your family with the best essential oil and oil-infused products in the world.  The Seed to Seal promise ensures that with every targeted supplement, every skin care solution, and every pure essential oil you use, you are enjoying the benefits of their global resources, industry leadership, and decades of innovation. This results in a pristine final product that you know is created with conscientious sourcing, science and standards.

Young Living sources from corporate-owned farms, as well as partner farms and Seed to Seal certified suppliers that adhere to their partnership principles.  This empowers them to source conscientiously with priority on quality, sensitivity to community impact, and mindfulness toward the local ecosystems.  Ultimately, this empowers you to feel fully confident using Young Living Products.

When Young Living says a farm adheres to our Seed to Seal Partnership Principles they mean it! To be a partner farm you must meet the following 5 requirements:


The sourcing and Executive teams hand select renowned suppliers of premium botanicals and building relationships with them for decades. They continue to foster and expand those relationships daily.


ALL FARMS whether a partner farm or corporate owned farm, or Seed to Seal certified supplier must sign declarations that they will follow our strict Seed to Seal specifications.


Young Living backs up signed Seed to Seal declarations with legally binding contracts that require the partners to deliver on those declarations.


Young Living has spent MILLIONS of dollars on a state-of-the-art lab with cutting-edge testing instruments, as well as a world class team of researchers. If the team finds that a supplier’s product doesn’t meet the demanding standards, it never reaches the warehouse.  Trust me this happens.  Product has been refused, thus causing a shortage or out of stock situation until product can be sourced that does meet the strict testing.


In addition to it’s testing, Young Living verifies the quality of the oils via a third-party audit of the supply chain.  The intricate global sourcing network is designed to bring members superior products, and they are proud to have implemented and objective audit process.

While the quality of the products begin in the fields, it’s proven in the lab with research from the R&D team’s 180 years of combined experience.  They also test product samples as needed with two independent, respected, and accredited labs.  They create pure, effective formulas to provide your family with products that contain the cleanest and most innovative ingredients available.

Young living is the leader of the modern day essential oils movement and a close partner with the earth, it’s part of thier stewardship to do business responsibly from sustainably sourcing rare botanicals, to uplifting local communities, to going above and beyond to comply with local environmental rules. Young Living chooses to partner with sources they know produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally, setting a top-tier standard for sustainability that you can trust.

Young living farms stand apart in the essential oil industry.  That’s why their essential oil farms play such and integral role in the Seed to Seal promise.  They have invested unprecedented time and resources to ensure that these standards are prioritized at each of the corporate-owned farms, partner farm, and Seed to Seal certified supplier.  This ensures your home and family get the very best nature has to offer.


This farm is extra special because I have been here and planted product, as well as checked out the distillation facility.  This farm grows Lavender, hyssop, Clary Sage, Peppermint, Goldenrod, Balsam Fir, Melissa, Roman Chamomile, Juniper, Blue Yarrow, Spearmint and German Chamomile. A little side note is that if you attend convention in Utah then you will be able to go and visit this farm, see the distillation and possible plant or pull some weeds.  None the less, you can say you have had a firsthand look and been able to see the production of the purest essential oils on the plant!

The Whispering Springs Farm is an iconic farm, not only to Young Living but also to the essential oil movement and the wellness community. This lavender farm is just a short drove from the Young Living Global Headquarters and is home to events such as and Annual Easter Egg Hunt, the Lavender Day Festival, the Essential Oils and Animals Conference, and the Fall Festival Draft Horse Show and Rodeo.

Here there is a product store, a small lake to enjoy or paddle boat, an arena for jousting events, a horse barn where they store the beautiful draft horses, a distillery, picnic area, small play town and playground for the kids.

Remember, the farms are open for visitation, just call ahead to check on the hours or to set an appointment before you visit a farm.  Here is the number and address for the farm if you are ever nearby.

Gentle Baby

One of my favorites!  I don’t have a baby, but I do have grand children.  But you know what?  I don’t use this oil just when babies are around, I use it for myself!!  I find it is emotionally calming for me and gives me a peaceful feeling inside.  Occasionally feeling a bit anxious?  We all have those times, well, this is a great oil for just that time.

It’s great for babies as well, in the evening when they tend to be at their most cranky state. Try to diffuse a bit in the evening, or rub a 50:50 dilution on the tummy in a clockwise motion to calm the digestive system when needed.

Remember this oil is not just for babies, it’s for everyone!

FRIDAY FREEDAY – Do you get free stuff in your monthly box order?

FRIDAY FREEDAY – Do you get free stuff in your monthly box order?


I love getting my monthly Essential Rewards order from Young Living.  What is so great about the program is that I only need to place a $50 order to be active.  What I Love the most is replacing in my monthly box the items I used to get at the grocery store, like shampoo, body wash, snacks, laundry soap and other things.  It makes it such an easy swap and doesn’t change my monthly budget at all.  When I came to that realization it wasn’t hard for me to reach goals that got me ALL KINDS OF FREE STUFF with my order!!

First of all they give you rewards points each month beginning with 15% back for months 1-3, then months 4-5 earns 20% back and after 24 months you earn 25% FOREVA!  Yep, you read that right, and months 3 and 6 get you an extra thank you gift as well.  After 24 consecutive months you get a special bottle of Loyalty essential oil.  Is that not cool or what.  Your points work dollar for dollar to order product, you can use them anytime.  I can also change my monthly order date if I need things sooner or maybe I want it later. There’s always that chance my money situation might dictate that I skip a month and that’s okay as well, I can just do that on line myself one time per a 12 month period.  I have 134 point right now which is equal to $134 to spend, that is a lot of product!

Do you get a monthly box of any kind?  Do they give you free stuff just for ordering? Not only do I get free product every month, but they always make sure it is something that pertains to the times and seasons.  For example this month is back to school time for most and they have included 3 bottles of Thieves hand purifier, who couldn’t use that!  Also, with back to school come the change of the Summer Season to Fall and we all know that seasonal changes may often bother our respiratory systems, so they have included a roll on bottle of Breath Again!!  Another win for everyone.

Of course you DON’T NEED to be on essential reward to get some free product, but you won’t get the rewards points, the free thank you gifts on month 3 and 6 and not to mention there are certain items in the free monthly promos that are strictly for Essential Rewards members.

It’s not too late to get a wholesale membership through Young Living which saves you 24% ALL THE TIME.  An added benefit is you will be part of my team and I will send you a nice welcome gift as well.  It’s not too late to sign up and get the free items for August, hurry while there is still time. Click here to go to my website to sign up if you’re ready.  If you need assistance or have any questions about oils you can always email me at: [email protected]

Monday Make It – Why I always hated school lunches!

DIY Shampoo

DIY Shampoo


This non toxic all natural 4 ingredients shampoo is great!  My hair is so soft and shiny after using it for over 3 months.


4 oz. distilled Water

4 oz. Aloe Vera Gel (I get mine here without Vitamin E) or this one, which is a bit cheaper but, contains Vitamin E.

2 oz.   Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Unscented Castille Soap (I get mine here)

5 drops each of Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils(I get mine here)  if you have flaky dry scalp, add 5 drops Tea Tree oil, for a moisturizing fuller body shampoo add a tablespoon of avocado oil to the aloe gel and shake to mix BEFORE ADDING REMAINING ingredients.  You may need to shake gently before each use if oil separates.

Watch this video for instructions on how to mix.

DIY Hair Serum with essential oils



Here is an instructional video making the hair serum


15 drops Rosemary essential oil(I get mine here)

Humming Bird Feeder using recycled Ningxia Red bottles

Humming Bird Feeder using recycled Ningxia Red bottles


I tried using Periscope and for the last half the sound did not work so I had to resort to doing the ending again and editing/joining the two with YouTube so here is the instructional video for those who are interested.

You can make a single bottle feeder by just using one bottle.

you will need:

Empty Glass Bottle

Wire cutters

Needle nose pliers

Bling or as I call it a little sum-umm, sum-umm(optional)

12 Gauge aluminum(copper colored wire)I get mine here. Use a bit more than 5 ft. per bottle

Feeder tubes, I get mine here

Natural Hummingbird Nectar I get mine here. Please don’t use the red type, it has dye in it and I wouldn’t want the hummingbirds ingesting it.  Thank you and the birds thank you, too!


Watch this video by clicking here and it will make more sense.  But, take your 5+ foot of wire and begin at the neck of the bottle and wrap around taking the end and wrapping a few times to hold, continue wrapping the wire up the bottle, go from the neck to the bottom and make sure that the wires cross in a few places.  Bring the wire loose end back up and under some of the points where the wires cross and wrap a couple times through to make it hold a bit better.  Do this in 2-3 crossing areas, finally ending at the top(actually the bottle base, but it is the top when upside down).  Take the loose end and com up and over to make a hanger and find a place on the other side to loop it around the last circle of wire around the bottle.

**NOTE: I like to bling up my feeders so I use recycled broken jewelry, buttons, etc, and as you wrap the wire find opportunity to wrap on a little bling!

Mix your nectar and fill the bottle.

Insert the feeder tube VERY securely or all the nectar will be lost.

If you want to make a trio of feeders make three of these and then take about a foot of wire and run it under and around three of the bottle together.  Make sure the Red Wolfberry side of the bottle is facing out and the ingredient side faces towards the inside.  After securing the 3 bottle together, take the 3 loop hangers at the top and just twist them all together! Voila!  Now go quickly and put them up and watch nature do it’s work.


It’s a super ANTIOXIDANT fruit filled supplemental drink for the whole family!  Energize and fortify while supporting the immune system.  For a detailed ingredient list click here.
