Have you ever wondered how Young Living Essential Oils began? Where it all started? Back in July of 2015, Gary Young, founder of Young Living, published a series of posts on his blog, detailing the highlights of what led him down the path towards essential oils. It’s a fascinating read and reveals his PASSION for essential oils and the reason why he has made his life’s goal to take Young Living essential oils to every home in the world.
Actually Gary Young’s whole life, before discovering essential oils, prepared him for the path that God had chosen for his life. Life was not easy for the Young family by any means, and in many ways mirrors that of our forefathers who founded this country. You see Gary grew up in a 16×20-foot cabin with a dirt floor until the age of 4. Then his father, Donald N. Young, built a 30×30-foot, four-room cabin, where he lived with his family and five siblings until he was 17 years old. This cabin was located 12 miles from town- it had no electricity or running water.
I’m sure for most of us its hard to imagine that anyone in modern times would choose this type of life for themselves and their children. However, facing hardships, learning discipline and self-reliance, developing a love for nature, learning how to walk through difficulty, survive and come out successful on the other side was exactly what would be needed in the years that lay ahead for Gary Young. The character building qualities that his early years developed in him are still visable in his life today.
“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.”- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Gary’s great love is being with God in the mountains on his horse with his family beside him. Were it not for such a terrible, debilitating accident, he would still be in the mountains, the path that destiny has taken him would never have come to be, and the gifts that he has given to the world would never have been given. His instinctive knowing about the essences hidden within the vast web of the life-giving flora that Mother Nature offers to the world and the quest to discover their secrets would never have entered his mind.”- Mary Young
