Young Living’s Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest oils embody their full concept of Seed to Seal®. There, at Young Living’s nearly 2,000 acres Finca Botanica Aromatica farm, new essential oils are grown, harvested and distilled.
New Essential Oil Discoveries
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 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.
Young Living’s plants are organically produced in the highest quality soil without a trace of chemicals. The land didn’t necessarily start out with the best soil. It was through Young Living’s sustainable farming methods and organic practices that it became that way.
The farm’s thriving worm house is a very important part of producing Therapeutic Grade essential oils. The worms produce organic liquid fertilizer to enrich the soil and fertilize the plants.
Ecuador’s tropical climate and fertile land allows year-round growing season. Typically, one square kilometre of rainforest in Ecuador supports over 1100 tree species.
The Finca Botanica Aromatica farm sits on the outskirts of the rainforest, not directly in it. Some of the more popular crops the farm grows are lang ylang, peppermint, oregano, lemongrass, palo santo, dorado azul, copaiba, helichrysm and more.
