LEHI, Utah, July 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Young Living, the world's leading provider of essential oils, today announced its third annual Essential Oils Day will take place on July 11th. The day commemorates essential oils as a vital component in wellness practices and is an important reminder of the importance of caring for the earth. International Essential Oils Day is a recognized national holiday that honors the birthday and influence of the pioneer of the modern essential oils movement, D. Gary Young.
To celebrate this year's International Essential Oils Day, Young Living is donating 5% of global sales on July 11 to the D. Gary Young Global Leadership Fund for Higher Education. The donation will help deserving students from the Young Living Academy in Chongon, Ecuador—as well as rising leaders and deserving students in other developing nations—pursue higher education opportunities at a university or trade school. This fund helps bridge a difficult gap for these students who have big dreams but who often can't afford higher education.
"The Young Living Foundation is supporting some very inspiring young leaders around the world who have potential to make a big impact throughout their lives," said Jackie Skinner, executive director of the Young Living Foundation. "We are honored to have the opportunity to help this next generation of leaders further their education and follow their dreams."
To help spread the awareness of essential oils, Young Living is encouraging others to share their experiences with essential oils on social media using #ieod and #internationalessentialoilsday. Young Living is encouraging donations to the D. Gary Young Global Leadership Fund for Higher Education through product purchases or direct donations.
