Who is Gary Young?

Gary&MaryIn 1993 Gary Young, Farmer and health Expert changed the world of essential oils forever.
In this historical yeas, Gary Young developed his first organic herb farming and distillation operation.
At the time, Gary had already discovered the incredible power of essential oils, but because the quality of available oils varied so greatly, he’d been unable to fully harness their potential.
While he knew that pure essential oils had the ability to produce spectacular results, he found that the chemically altered or adulterated oils on the market were often ineffective and even harmful.

Gary Young grew up in Idaho, and at the age of 17, moved to Canada to pursue a career in logging and ranching. At the age of 24, Young suffered a near–fatal logging accident that left him in a coma for three weeks.
The accident left Young paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

Gary and his horseDepression set in and deepened until he decided it was time to make a change; Young wanted a better life than the one he was living.

From this day on, Gary Young dedicated his life to researching essential oils and natural ways to combat disease, preserve health, and promote natural and healthy lifestyles.

Gary has since earned a degree in nutrition, a doctorate in naturopathy, and has gone on to become one of the foremost authorities on essential oils and their therapeutic value in the world.

Today, as founder and president of Young Living Essential Oils and The D. Gary Young Foundation, Gary Young travels throughout the world furthering his research, sharing his passion with others, and bringing therapeutic essential oils and humanitarian aid to those in need.
