A busy and educational week in Salt Lake City, Utah was the fare for the 20th year Young Living Essential Oils has been in business. Growth of both the farms and the popularity of essential oils and essential oil products has been phenomenal over recent years. It’s amazing to see how many people are into empowering themselves and making a difference in their lives and the environment. But those are topics for another blog post, today I want to share some of the beautiful farm photo’s I took while at the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah.

I just love that Young Living owns so much land around the world where they can produce the highest quality essential oils, you know because they can easily oversee every step of the process which makes assurance that we’re getting the best quality essential oils possible.

Spearmint is my all-time favorite of the mints, the scent is divine!

The Clary Sage was at peak bloom last week, I am lovin’ all of those pink and purple shades of the blossoms!

Quality control begins with the tiny seeds.

I’ve forgotten how many hundreds of thousands of lavender seedlings Young Living has grown in the greenhouse this year alone but it’s a lot! I’m so in my element in a greenhouse 😉

Notice the weeds in this next picture, yup the Young Living Farms are organic and the weeds are pulled by hand, we’re talking thousands of acres of YL herb farms here folks… makes ya want to re-think weeding in the home garden, huh!? Thank you farm staff!

I realize a 43 acre field of grain might not be your idea of a big deal but I can assure you that this is no ordinary grain. It’s called Einkorn grain and it’s something special that you will want to know about. I will write about it in future posts, I think you will agree that it is information worth knowing!
