With our global growth, our commitment to creating pure, potent essential oils and products through environmentally conscious methods also continues to grow.
This is where everything started! In 1993, Gary Young brought lavender seeds from France and began growing them here.
Located in Monah, Utah, just a few miles outside Young Living Headquarters, the Mona Lavender farm is over 1600 acres and boast one of the largest privately owned, state-of-the-art distilleries in the world.
Although this ranch is one of our newest locations, many Young Living global leaders have attended retreats and events hosted at the beautiful Skyrider Wilderness Ranch. Nestled in the hills of Tabiona, Utah, and home to stunning vistas and wildlife, this farm is close to Gary Young’s heart. It’s a location where our unique einkorn grain can grow, as well as a place where Gary can perform research on distillation methods and new botanicals.
Located in scenic Naples, Idaho, the Highland Flats Tree Farm is home to some of the beautiful evergreen trees that help Young Living produce essential oils inspired by the great outdoors. This location is not only a blue spruce farm but is also home to one of the world’s largest essential oil distilleries. It’s the location of Young Living’s annual Winter Harvest and Spring Planting projects, which allow members to participate in the Seed to Seal process firsthand.
In 2014—after extensive scouting and research to find the best possible location—Young Living purchased land in British Columbia, Canada, for the Northern Lights Farm. The pristine land remains free of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers, thanks to its relatively untouched nature prior to Young Living’s ownership.
Farm Fact: This farm is already a main source of Black Spruce essential oil, an important oil in many popular blends, including Valor II™, Shutran™, Harmony™, Awaken™, and Envision™.
Young Living’s partnership with the Kona Sandalwood Reforestation Project is a great example of how Young Living and our partnerships strive to preserve cultural values. At this location, only dead or dying sandalwood is harvested to maintain the ecological balance on the island and to follow the deeply rooted Hawaiian belief in humans’ respectful relationship with the land.
Building this farm and its state-of-the-art distillery started as one of Gary Young’s passion projects. Today, Guayaquil’s tropical climate helps nurture Young Living’s 2,000 acres of rich soil, year-round harvests, and lush botanical life.
Young Living’s Simiane-la-Rotonde Lavender Farm is located in charming Provence, a region of France renowned for its beauty, fragrant lavender fields, and summer-long festivals. Because of its history and breathtaking views, this farm has become a popular destination for essential oil lovers, artists, and visitors looking to breathe in the captivating spirit of the special location.
Dalmatia’s striking and historic landscape reflects its deep cultural roots and makes an ideal home for the botanical helichrysum. That’s why this farm was founded with the intention of becoming a sustainable source for the popular Helichrysum oil, but the location has since continued to grow and cultivate even more botanicals.
Farm Fact: Rocks were transplanted to the helichrysum plantation to replicate the natural growing conditions of the previously wild-crafted plant.
Located in Bulgaria, one of the most valued rose-growing regions in the world, the Balkan Botanical Farm specializes in roses, and has expanded its essential oil farm offerings to include Roman chamomile and valerian as part of its partnership with Young Living. The Balkan Botanical Farm builds upon the deep history and worldwide recognition of botanical farming in the region.
Farm Fact: The Balkan Botanical farm is also involved in promoting local cultural events, regional festivals, and educational opportunities for workers and their families.
Australia’s Northern Territory outback sets the stunning backdrop for this location’s plantations of Australian cypress pine trees. Drawing on ethnobotanical use in the aboriginal pharmacopeia, the founder of the Outback Botanical Reserve actually stumbled upon a new, now patented method of distillation that resulted in Blue Cypress essential oil. This oil’s many benefits are still being researched to this day
While this farm is headquartered in Perth, the sandalwood plantations extend across Australia’s tropical northern outback. This location utilizes a remarkable approach to protecting precious sandalwood trees from India’s growing black market by bringing seeds from India to be cultivated on this farm. Once safely planted in their new home, these trees are cultivated with the industry’s highest standards of quality, sustainability, and environmental stewardship.
The limestone cliffs of Oman’s Dhofar Mountains provide the perfect environment for the frankincense tree to grow, and Young Living is the first and only company in the world to obtain permission to distill and export Omani Sacred Frankincense oil and bring it into the Western world. The Boswellia sacra trees in this region carry a rich history, having been harvested for the past 5,000 years. Today, their resin is harvested by the same method and on the same schedule as their ancestors, so they continue this centuries-old story.
This region has long revered frankincense for its luxurious fragrance and properties. The esteemed benefits of the frankincense tree are now available to homes around the world, and Young Living’s longstanding partnership has played an integral role in the process of making Frankincense oil more accessible.
This cooperative farm is actually made up of smaller individual farm operations that each focus on different oils. Like each unique operation, each oil has its own story and background that include its preservation, generational history and family significance, and the ingenuity and innovation necessary to create it.
