In conjunction with its recent Canadian convention, Young Living Essential Oils celebrated the grand opening of Northern Lights Farm, its new farm and distillery in British Columbia.
The Utah company operates seven farms around the world, where it sources plants for its essential oil products. At these locations and at partner farms, Young Living oversees its signature Seed to Seal process, a series of quality control measures to ensure the purity of the oils.
Northern Lights Farm near Canada’s Rocky Mountains is rich in black spruce trees, which supply Young Living’s Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil. The oil is a standalone product, as well as an ingredient in some of the company’s top-selling blends. Last year, the farm produced 6,300 liters of Northern Lights Black Spruce.
Young Living hosted its first Farm Day at Northern Lights on Aug. 24, ahead of the company’s Canadian national convention. Founder and Chairman Gary Young, who has led the global farm initiative, was on hand to welcome visitors. “As one of my greatest passions and achievements, I’m honored to share Northern Lights with our members and the local community, who have supported this endeavor from day one,” said Young.
The grand opening event included tours of the farm and distillery, as well as an on-site conference and education center. The company, which often brings members to its farms to take part in the harvest, also plans to install a visitor center, spa and lodge at Northern Lights.
