Lehi, Utah-based Young Living Essential Oils recently announced that the Amanzi Amahle Farm and Distillery in Cape Town, South Africa, will become the newest Young Living partner farm.
The farm will provide Young Living with essential oils, including eucalyptus radiata, tea tree, grapefruit, orange and lemon.
“We’re proud to partner with the Amanzi Amahle Farm and Distillery because of their 35 years of experience in sustainable growing practices, dedication to socially conscious principles and the production of essential oils of the highest quality,” said Lauren Walker, Young Living chief supply chain officer.
Scattered across the vast continent of Africa, the Amanzi Amahle Farm and Distillery boasts more than 29,000 acres of rich soil and land ripe for growing botanicals for some of Young Living’s essential oils. The newest Young Living partner farming cooperative and distillery practices Seed to Seal® sustainability by scattering leftover spent leaf biomass back onto the land, among other sustainability methods. All aspects of the process—from planting to distillation—are monitored and maintained through quality control practices and testing; an independent audit also ensures that all essential oils produced meet Young Living’s strict Seed to Seal standards.
