Growing from "seed to seal" around the world

The outstanding quality of Young Living's essential oils begins with its farms and deep knowledge of steam distillation. While the first farms were planted and developed decades ago in Idaho and Utah, they have expanded over the years under the direction of Young Living's "farmer founder", D. Gary Young, to Ecuador, France, Canada, and Oman.

Young Living is one of only a select few companies in the world that is growing from seed, harvesting, distilling, producing, formulating, packaging, and marketing pure A-grade essential oils.

Whispering Springs Farm - Utah, U.S.
The largest herb farm and distillery in the world, our lavender farm in Mona, Utah, features nearly 1,400 acres of fragrant herbs and is open to visitors year round.

No matter what time of year you visit this Young Living farm, you will get an inside look at some phase of our planting and distilling operations. In the spring you will see the starts being planted and the fields being cultivated. In the summer and fall you will not only view vast organic fields of lavender, peppermint, clary sage, and other herbs, but you will also witness acres and acres of herbs being harvested by Young Living's custom-engineered cultivation equipment and distilled in Young Living's specially-designed stainless steel distilling chambers.

In the winter you watch the starts being planted and tended in the greenhouses. Young Living's specially designed and built distillers are the only stainless steel, vertical steam distillers in North America. Their design is based on the ancient tradition of distillation used in Europe, India, Egypt and other areas of the world. During the fall and summer months when distillation is in full production, the exotic herbal aromas that waft from the "cooker" will provide a treat for senses and a thrill for the imagination.

St. Maries Farm - Idaho, U.S.
Previous to Young Living’s 1992 purchase of the land for the St. Maries farm, this area had never been exposed to chemicals, pesticides, and man-made fertilizers. This pristine condition makes the 200 acres of soil perfect for the cultivation of botanicals such as melissa, lavender, and tansy. If you would like to visit the beautiful St. Maries farm, please call (208) 245-2745 to arrange a tour.

Highland Flats Tree Farm - Idaho, U.S.
The Highland Flats tree farm is located near the small Idaho town of Naples, less than 50 miles from the U.S./Canada border. Since 2000, the 250-acre farm has hosted the annual Winter Harvest, where members join in harvesting blue spruce, balsam fir, red cedar, and pine trees. Each spring, members also participate in the Spring Planting, an important reforestation project that replaces the harvested trees. If you would like to contact Highland Flats Farm, please call: (208) 267-0800. Office hours: Monday - Thursday 8AM PST to 4PM PST.
