International Essential Oils Day

Spread the wellness with a worldwide celebration!

Every year on July 11, essential oil enthusiasts from the U.S. to Uzbekistan come together to celebrate International Essential Oils Day. Young Living established International Essential Oils Day (IEOD) on the birthday of its founder, the late D. Gary Young, to pay tribute to the pioneer of the modern-day essential oils movement and honour Gary’s passion for philanthropy and his purpose-driven spirit.
International Essential Oils Day also commemorates Young Living’s position as the global leader of the essential oil industry—a position we’ve held for 25 years—and raises awareness about sustainability processes like those found in our Seed to Seal® quality commitment.
With our annual celebration comes the opportunity to support The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation, a philanthropic organisation started by Gary in 2009.

About the D. Gary Young Leadership Endowment

When the Young Living Academy opened in 2009, Gary envisioned a school that would provide top-notch education and give each student an opportunity to become a future leader in Ecuador. After celebrating the Academy’s first graduating class in 2016, it became apparent that while many of our graduates were academically equipped for college, their family’s socioeconomic status forced them to give up their studies and work to help their families meet day-to-day needs.
This year Young Living will donate 5 percent of its global sales for the day—up to $250,000—to The D. Gary Young Leadership Endowment. This endowment will provide scholarships for higher education to Young Living Academy students, giving them the opportunity to attend a university and pursue career dreams.
Join our efforts to bring whole-life wellness to homes across the globe and a world of opportunities to academy students. Here are some ways you can make an impact on International Essential Oils Day:
Stock up on your favourite Young Living oils and we'll donate 5 percent to the Young Living Endowment
Share essential oils with friends and family so they can begin their wellness journey
