The melissa crop is being harvested in Idaho right now. The seeds that came from France so many years ago now create the amazing Melissa essential oil that people treasure. Organically grown and distilled at our St. Maries, Idaho, farm, this year’s harvest will provide Young Living members with a bumper crop!
Lavender will also be harvested at the St. Maries farm and at the Mona, Utah, farm as well. The distilleries at both farms will be going late into the night.
It thrills us to think that the lavender seeds I carried home so many years ago were the start of Young Living’s lavender production in two states and that now seeds from the St. Maries lavender were taken to France to reseed fields in Provence that were decimated by drought and virus.
