By cultivating, harvesting, and distilling many of our essential oils on our very own farms, we have the unique ability to verify perfection at every step of our process. Combine this with our extensive laboratory testing and independent audits, and it’s no wonder that we routinely exceed our own industry-leading quality standards. Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop there, however. Inspired by the fields, forests, and jungles that surround our pristine farms, Gary Young is constantly discovering new botanicals and essential oils, helping us bring more of nature’s greatest gifts to people everywhere.

Young Living Ecuador Farm
Guayaquil, EcuadorBoasting nearly 2,000 lush acres of farmland, our Ecuador farm’s fertile ground and year-round growing season support an abundance of palo santo trees, several new high-oil-content plants, along with ample cultivation of lemongrass, ruta graveolens, and many more local plants and herbs. This farm is also proving to be the perfect place to harvest oils that are in short supply throughout the world, such as helichrysum, which is renowned for its restorative properties.
Dense jungles surround the farm, creating a natural lab for essential oil research and development. Founder Gary Young ventures into the jungle on a regular basis to obtain plant samples, which are then analyzed for their therapeutic properties. Once a new Young Living® essential oil is discovered, the plant is either cultivated and distilled on the farm, or sustainably harvested from existing supplies.
Some Young Living essential oils developed in this manner include:
- Copaiba essential oil
- Dorado Azul essential oil
- Eucalyptus blue essential oil
- Ocotea essential oil
- Palo santo essential oil
- RutaVaLa essential oil blend
- Annual Amazon Adventure
Every year Gary Young and a group of Young Living Independent Distributors travel to Guayaquil for the Annual Amazon Adventure. This once-in-a-lifetime experience includes guided hikes through the jungle, tours of the Young Living farm’s fields and distillation facilities, essential oil trainings, and much more.
