Celebrating 20 Years, 1994–2014

In 2014 Young Living marks two decades of helping individuals discover profound, lasting transformations, and we are excited to celebrate our inspiring history. Company Founder and CEO D. Gary Young has made it his life’s work to pioneer Young Living’s unique approach to wellness by combining traditional wisdom and cutting-edge research. It is this approach that makes us the world leader in essential oils, and we plan to celebrate the Young Living difference every month with a different theme during 2014!

Thanks to our members’ dedication and Gary’s passion, we have been able to share our priceless message with the world for 20 years and counting. We invite you to celebrate our history with us and become a part of our future.
