Young Living Testing Facts
What is adulteration of essential oils?
Many oils sold on the market are adulterated or extended with the use of synthetic chemicals. Scent can be engineered and imitated but the entire constituent of true essential oils cannot be duplicated. Only nature can create therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Adulteration is intended for the fragrance and not for the beneficial health of the body.
An example is adding dipropylene glycol to Lavender to hulk up the oil. DPG is colorless and odorless.
Young Living's testing is able to find 1 molecule out of a billion that is bad. That's equivalent to a filling up your home with rice and finding one bad rice grain or finding a bad drop of water in an Olympic sized swimming pool.
Young Living regularly sends samples to test alongside their in-house testing to third-party labs. About a half dozen of them request to remain anonymous because they work for the FBI.

About 90% of every single oil readily available in the United States is unsafe for infants because they use synthetics or contain harmful-to-babies fillers.
Did you know that Young Living goes far above any industry standard by doing 20 tests in triplicate, two separate times in the process? This is a direct statement from Dr. Buch, Young Living’s Chief Science Officer.
The extensive testing is the main reason to never use any brand that does not verify the ENTIRE oil production process from seed selection, to cultivation process, to distillation, to testing, and to bottle sealing.
