A lesser man might be afraid to go back to logging after the  devastating accident Gary Young suffered in 1973. But year after year, he is at the Winter Harvest in Idaho felling trees and distilling their oil.

How many of you have ever experienced pain in your life? Have you ever taken painkillers? And then you try to function afterwards. What do they do to your brain? I know about that because after my accident, I was on morphine for three straight years, and then I was on different forms of oxycodone and codeine for seven years. I didn’t know if I was coming or going. It was crazy. I was on antidepressants for seven years because of the terrible depression I was experiencing.

In the accident, I had three open skull fractures, and then I got meningitis lying in the hospital. I had 16 crushed vertebrae, 11 ruptured disks, 19 broken bones, and my spinal cord was herniated in two locations. The surgeon told my parents that if a butcher had taken a meat cleaver and gone down the right side of my body and sheared off every bone, he couldn’t have done a better job than the tree that hit me.

So, I’m back together and I function better than a lot of 40 year olds, and it’s because of the vigor essential oils have brought into my life.
