Young Living Lavender Farms 2005. This video includes much of the footage from 2004, but adds new stuff as well.1
0:10 Gary using equipment he personally modified and designed to speed the hand-planting of lavender starts.
1:13 Footage of members from the 2002 trip to the farm in Simiane France.
137 Members hand weeding mature lavender plants.
2:20 This is what real, freshly distilled lavender oil looks like. Other companies can’t show you this because they don’t have their own farms, much less distillers. Instead, they buy through brokers who buy from farms which normally produce non-therapeutic oil for perfume companies.
2:33 Early einkorn harvesting and learning. It wasn’t until 2014 (nine years later) that Young Living had enough einkorn to start selling it in products. Again, see Gary in middle of it all.
7:30 Compare these small, antique distillers to the large, modern, stainless steal ones designed by Gary.
