In the essential oil industry, there is no higher standard of quality than E.O.B.B.D. (Essential Oil Botanically and Biochemically Defined).
The E.O.B.B.D. standard ensures quality though every step of the process, from plant to finished essential oil. E.O.B.B.D. certification ensures that the correct plant species, plant organ and extraction method were used to make the oil. The certification also ensures that biochemical analysis of the essential oil match with the highest quality reference standards.

Nothing Added – Nothing Taken Away
It’s common to see highly adulterated essential oils, replete with “100% pure” on the label, competing with each other on the health store shelves (and internet), all at a very low price.
Essential oils generally used in aromatherapy in North America for “commercial fragrancing” and bath, culinary, and beauty products are not suitable for therapeutic use. In contrast, Be Young essential oils are specially grown and extracted to perform deep therapeutic action in the body and the mind. Oils extracted using harsh or chemical-based distillation methods are very common throughout the world and are universally dangerous and ineffective for therapeutic uses.
The vast majority of essential oils are mass produced for use in the flavor and fragrance industries. Even when oils are produced for aromatherapy and therapeutic uses, product quality is all too often sacrificed to meet inventory requirements or to improve the bottom line. Essential oil quality varies widely and oil labels, claims and marketing materials are often very misleading. Growers, distillers, sellers, importers, distributors, suppliers, fillers and resellers with differing agendas and quality standards all have a hand in the process of making an essential oil. The end result is that finding safe and effective therapeutic grade essential oils can be challenging, confusing and down-right disappointing.
Be Young essential oils is dedicated to providing uncompromised quality essential oils. That means that product quality is not adjusted or compromised for any reason. Below are common industry practices that Be Young rejects:
- Alternative suppliers of lesser or unknown quality are never used to meet inventory requirements. This means that some oils may temporarily go out of stock from time to time.
- Oils are never diluted with lower grade oils or cut with carriers or fillers to lower the price of the oil. This means that the price of a particular essential oil may vary from season to season depending on crop yields and other seasonal variables.
Rather than relying on a large bulk importer, Be Young selects its growers, distillers and importers on an oil by oil basis to ensure maximum quality and therapeutic strength for each individual essential oil. Be Young also formulates and mixes their own blends and fills their oils in-house, ensuring total control and adherence to their quality standards.
Most essential oils are diluted “in a base of” another oil, even if the label claims “100% pure”. This widespread industry practice may be done for a number of reasons:
- Extending (diluting) an essential oil saves money by allowing more bottles of the oil to be filled.
- Many methods for using essential oils require dilution of the oil to achieve optimal results. Therefore, most essential oil formulators choose to pre-dilute the oil for you in the bottle.
- Essential oils are also diluted to reduce the potency and strength of the oil. This is standard practice with very “hot” oils, such as oregano.
Be Young does not dilute any of its essential oils. Because essential oils can be used in many different ways, dilution is presumptive and limits the customer’s choices and options for using the oil. Be Young respects the competence of its customers and preserves their choice to dilute each essential oil for its intended use.
Meticulous Selection Process
Dana Young, Ph.D and founder of Be Young essential oils, carefully selects the source for each essential oil to produce the most therapeutically active and complete array of constituents. Each oil source is chosen based on plant species and organ, growing practices, soil health and composition, harvesting method, distillation process, and gas chromatographic (GC) analysis to maximize the therapeutic and medicinal qualities of the oil. Rather than relying on large bulk suppliers, Be Young seeks out smaller organic and/or wild crafted sources that produce essential oils with unique chemotype and medicinal properties.
When it comes to essential oils, you get what you pay for. Essential oils from small growers producing superior quality products will always cost more than cheap, low-quality, mass-produced oils. If you want essential oils for therapeutic uses, you want the best quality and the most potent oils you can get your hands on.
“I would rather have a drop of oil from properly grown and carefully distilled plants than a truckload of cheap oil”
– Dana Clay Young
Because high quality essential oils are more potent than lower quality oils, it takes much less to get the same job done. Even though high quality oils may cost a little more, drop-per-drop they are a much better value than cheap, low-quality oils.
