International Essential Oil Day

International Essential Oils Day (IEOD) is a celebration of the power and benefits that essential oils bring to all aspects of our lives, from natural products we use in our homes to supplements we use to support our health. IEOD began in 2018 when Young Living President and COO Jared Turner had the idea to celebrate July 11—YL Founder D. Gary Young’s birthday—in a way that honors Gary’s life work and gives back to The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation. Young Living will donate 5 percent of global sales on July 11 to the D. Gary Young Global Leadership Fund for Higher Education. This fund provides advanced education scholarships to rising leaders and deserving students who are supported by any of the Foundation partners around the world.

Giving back to deserving students

This year we are raising money to fund higher education scholarships for deserving students who, despite growing up in vulnerable conditions, have shown tremendous leadership potential and for whom a scholarship to attend a university or trade school bridges a difficult financial gap for them and their family. These scholarships give dedicated students the opportunity to pursue their dreams and become leaders in their communities.

What can you do personally to celebrate IEOD?

Order Young Living products on July 11 and we will donate 5 percent of global sales to the D. Gary Young Global Leadership Fund for Higher Education.

Another way we’re celebrating this special day is with the launch of a limited-time essential oil kit!
