We are in a wonderful time of year for giving, when we can share the many blessings we enjoy with those less fortunate. Gary Young often says he has been richly blessed in recovering his health and in building a worldwide essential oil company with his wife, Mary.

Gary established the D. Gary Young Foundation to share the gift of health and wellness he has received for so many years. A perfect way we all can spread joy is by joining Gary in supporting the work of the D. Gary Young Foundation.

This Foundation provides educational, financial, and health and wellness support in the U.S. and abroad. For example, the Sponsor a Child Program provides children in Chongon, Ecuador, with an opportunity to attend the Young Living Academy, where they receive a fantastic education and learn the principles and practical application of self-reliance and good health.

Gary’s Foundation supports at-risk children, builds schools and water systems in needy communities, and provides disaster relief, to mention just some of its projects.

To be continued next week.

Giving Thanks for What God Gave Me

From the fateful day of Gary Young's accident in Canada to 20 years of growing, harvesting, and distilling pure essential oils, this is the miracle of Young Living! Thank you one and all for joining Gary and Mary on this quest!

From the fateful day of Gary Young’s accident in Canada to 20 years of growing, harvesting, and distilling pure essential oils, this is the miracle of Young Living! Thank you one and all for joining Gary and Mary on this quest!

I could share with you for days. As you probably have figured out, this is my passion and my life.

I thank my sweetheart Mary for putting up with me, allowing me to do my work, and giving me the support that it takes to be able to do what I do. I’m grateful to have the two boys we have who love the oils, love the work that we do, and participate in it.

It’s a wonderful journey, and when you start using essential oils, your life will change in dimensions that you can’t imagine. You’ll sit back one day and think, golly, that was missing; and you didn’t even know it.

This is the part you will discover that will be empowering. I’ve never seen it fail yet. You see, I believe that God anointed the plants for these oils. If you read in the Bible, He talks about the holy anointing oils. No question about it. I believe that the essential oils are a conduit between us and God, and I truly believe without question that they increase our ability to communicate on a higher level than ever before.

As you start using the oils, one of the first things you will notice, if you don’t have a specific ache or pain, is that your spiritual relationship with Father in Heaven will magnify over and over and over. If you use the oils for no other reason than that alone, they will change your life.

A Blessed Thanksgiving to Everyone

Thanksgiving best wishes with love from Gary and Mary Young.

Thanksgiving best wishes to the Young Living Family with love from Gary and Mary Young.

We all have so much to be thankful for! Mary and I are thankful for the hard work of so many Young Living members who have spread the news of the blessings of our powerful oils throughout the world. We are also very thankful for our wonderful employees, who are working hard to make the Young Living member experience be world-class.

This year has been groundbreaking for Young Living in many ways! We are scrambling to meet the needs of the exploding number of new members because our goal is to ensure a plentiful supply of powerful oils and oil-infused products for all who are discovering their great value.

In addition, our phenomenal growth is not the only groundbreaking development. As the Northern Lights distillery in British Columbia is being built, the first loads of black spruce trees have been cut and chipped and are ready for distillation. We’re looking forward to soon having our much-needed Black Spruce essential oil!

May we be grateful for all we have and find ways to share our blessings with others!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Getting the Word Out

Education is very important to D. Gary Young. That's why he travels to meet with YL members to teach why he insists on essential oil purity through the Seed to Seal process. In this photo he explains how he brought lavender seeds from Provence,  France, to start the St. Maries lavender farm.

And yes, I put YL into a network marketing vehicle. Why? Because network marketing is the greatest free enterprise system that exists in our world today. A lot of people have a bad taste in their mouth about network marketing. So did I, once. I tried it when I was younger and lost a lot of money because it wasn’t the right thing.

Unfortunately, a lot of companies put together junk products and peddle them for that purpose. That was never my purpose. My purpose was to take something to the world that would change and heal not only mankind but the planet. That’s what it’s all about. Education is the next most important thing to me, and then the opportunity for people to have the free agency to share it with the world and enjoy the benefits of prosperity that comes into their lives, and that’s what I enjoy.

You know, if we didn’t have money, if we didn’t make money, we couldn’t help people. Not only do we build farms and create a living for a lot of people, but Mary and I give back. We’ve built two schools in Durango, Mexico, and we’ve built two schools in Ecuador and fund them. Those children have 100 percent scholarships. We have helped many people who have experienced a disaster, and we have other projects ongoing or projected

That’s what we’re about, and that’s why this is very special. Every drop of oil that we produce around the world is changing people’s lives.
