This Month We Pay Tribute to D. Gary and Mary Young, Pioneers of the Modern Essential Oil Movement

0 September 4, 2014 - Archive

Gary and Mary Young - Young Living FoundersRecords dating back to 4,500 BC describe the use of aromatic substances to promote physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Despite this long history of use, the modern use and research of essential oils didn’t begin until the late 19th and early 20th centuries.


The modern resurgence of essential oil use is due to the dedicated work of many important trailblazers. By creating Young Living Essential Oils in 1994, D. Gary and Mary Young became pioneers in bringing the power of essential oils to the forefront of the wellness movement and have given hundreds of thousands of individuals the opportunity to find wellness, purpose, and abundance.
