From farms in the United States and France, Young Living sources our most popular product: Lavender essential oil. The plant is part of the mint family, and the best-selling essential oil is extracted by steam distilling the flowering tops. Perhaps part of the reason for Lavender’s popularity comes from its extensive history. Looking back all the way to ancient Greece, a physician and botanist named Pedanius Dioscorides praised its many qualities and uses. Today Lavender is a key ingredient in Young Living products such as SleepEssence™, Estro™, and our Seedlings® product line.
