D. Gary Young is Young Living’s Founder (Gary’s wife, Nancy Young, is Young Living’s newly appointed CEO). He grew up with humble beginnings in the rural town of Challis, Idaho, where he developed a profound appreciation for the power of nature. Having dedicated decades to traveling the world and researching the remarkable wellness benefits of these precious oils, Gary is one of the world’s foremost authorities on essential oils. Because of his experiences, Gary has never let up on his lifelong mission to share the highest quality essential oils in the world.

Gary Young’s personal experiences have made him who he is today, expanded his empathetic nature, and left him with a true commitment to helping those in need. After helping himself recover from adversity, Gary knew he could help others as well. That has been his life’s mission ever since: sharing his knowledge of and experience with essential oils and healthy living!

Slide05[1]

Young Living has grown from a tiny business into the world leader in essential oils. From Gary’s first introduction to essential oils in 1985, we have now expanded around the world, with farms, markets, shipping facilities, members, and offices across the globe. Here you will see a few examples of important points in Young Living’s history. Slide06[1]

I love this picture because it depicts Young Living’s global impact! Gary Young is passionate about our farms and is instrumental in overseeing our many global farms, where he directs the growth, harvest, and distillation processes of our high-quality essential oils. It is amazing to see that even with so much growth around the world, Young Living remains dedicated to their powerful mission that was mentioned earlier.

Slide10[1]

Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. Some people like to call essential oils “nature’s living energy” because they contain unique constituents that provide a host of benefits. Most essential oils are extracted from plant sources using steam distillation and are highly concentrated, making them far more potent than dried botanicals. Essential oils are volatile, which means that the scent of the oil rises quickly into the air. They are also versatile, with a wide variety of uses. Some people use essential oils to enliven an environment, support different body systems, or just for their great scents. However you choose to use essential oils, chances are someone else has tried that same use in the past. If you still don’t know where to start, rest assured that each essential oil is labeled with primary usage instructions. An essential oil reference guide will also guide you in the right direction.

Slide11[1]

Essential oils are nothing new! They have been used throughout history in many cultures for their health-supporting benefits. The Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Europeans, and Chinese have used them for centuries for health, beauty, fragrance, and spiritual practices. There are also many references to essential oils in historical texts, which signifies their importance in history.

Slide12[1]

There are three ways to use essential oils. You can use some oils aromatically, some topically, and some can even be taken internally.

Slide13[1]

One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is aromatically. Many of us have had a time where a smell triggers a memory—freshly baked bread, pine needles, or spring flowers can easily take you back to positive times in your life. Essential oils are the same! To use them aromatically:

  • Place 1-2 drops in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, cup your hands over your nose and mouth, and inhale deeply.
  • Diffusion is another great way to use essential oils aromatically. By creating a fine aromatic mist, diffusers allow you to create a spa-like atmosphere and enjoy the benefits of essential oils in any environment. Young Living offers a wide variety of diffusers, and when you enroll as a Wholesale Member, you will receive a diffuser in your Premium Starter Kit.

Slide14[1]

Essential oils can also be applied to the skin. This is known as topical application. Topical application is a great way to support your skin because essential oils are easy to use and provide quick benefits. Essential oils can be applied to the area of the body you want to support (never in the eyes or ears). They can also be applied to the bottom of the feet, the wrists, behind the ears, and on the back of the neck.

Slide15[1]

Some people choose to use essential oils internally by adding them to water or liquid, placing them in a capsule, or taking one of Young Living’s oil-infused products. Peppermint, for example, can help promote healthy bowel function and support overall digestion when taken internally.

Slide16[1]

Of all the companies out there, why would you choose Young Living above all the others? Well, Young Living is the world leader in essential oils! We believe that your family deserves to harvest the benefits of nature’s solutions every day, without compromise. Our commitment to purity and stewardship is embodied in a unique, proprietary process we call Seed to Seal. No other company can match what Young Living does to ensure the purity and potency of the highest quality essential oils on the market.

Slide17[1]

Young Living’s commitment to quality starts with seeds. The seeds we use are selected for their ability to become botanicals with high levels of bioactive compounds. We then grow the seeds using cultivation practices that are dedicated to responsible and sustainable growing and harvesting methods. Next, we distill using a gentle, proprietary technique for steam extracting essential oils and preserving their precious constituents. To guarantee consistent, verifiable quality, our oils are tested in Young Living’s own internal labs, as well as in third-party facilities. Finally, each essential oil is carefully bottled and labeled using state-of-the-art equipment.

Slide18[1]

To ensure that Young Living is able to control every step of the Seed to Seal process, we own a number of farms and partner or co-op with many others around the world. Gary Young personally travels the globe to scout farms that offer ideal conditions for growing premium botanicals. This personal, direct involvement in the growing process is what allows us to ensure that each product delivers the purity and efficacy our members around the world expect.

Slide19[1]

Seed to Seal is not only our process of operations, but it is also our promise to your family. Through each step of our production process on both our own and our partner farms, we use the most exacting standards possible to make our products, your life, and the earth better. Only one company can make the Seed to Seal promise. Only Young Living!

Slide20[1]

There’s really no need to go to a live class because I’ll give you all the beginner essential oil info you’ll need while you stay at home and chill on your couch!

This is NOT your typical Facebook Essential Oils 101 Class!

LET ME BE VERY CLEAR! —> This is NOT your typical Facebook Essential Oils 101 Class! A Facebook essential oils class usually consists of MANY pictures and posts (sometimes way too many to keep track of), which tend to require a lot of reading on your part. Personally, I think that gets a little boring so I’ve decided to do my class differently. I’m hoping that you’ll be more attentive and able to retain way more info than you would from a typical Facebook class. :)

Here’s how to join my class:

If you are interested in joining my Facebook Essential Oils 101 Class, simply click here (or on the graphic below). Be sure to come back to that same Facebook event page on Sunday, March 15 from 7-8 pm CST to watch and learn. See you there!

What Are Essential Oils?

Understanding Essential Oils

ESSENTIAL OILS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS!

Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts show that essential oils have been used for thousands of years. There are a total of 188 references to essential oils in the Bible. Frankincense, Myrrh, Rosemary, Hyssop, and Spikenard were used in the Bible for anointing and healing the sick. The Wise Men even presented the Christ child with gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh. As a kid I remember learning that Jesus received gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh, but it wasn’t until I started using essential oils that I finally understood what that meant. Back in the day, these things were regarded as highly as gold was! :)

ESSENTIAL OILS ARE AROMATIC LIQUIDS THAT ARE DISTILLED FROM PLANTS!

A plant contains essential oils as part of its immune system (and it uses its oils to stay healthy). Essential oils are highly concentrated, aromatic liquids that are distilled from plants (common distillation techniques are illustrated below) and can include its seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, fruit, flowers, etc. For example, Frankincense oil comes from the resin, Lemon oil comes from the rind (peel of the fruit), Lavender oil comes from the flowers, Peppermint oil comes from the leaves, stems, and flower buds, Cypress oil comes from the branches, and Cinnamon oil comes from the bark.

Essential Oil Distillation

When plants are carefully grown and harvested, and the oil is carefully distilled from the plant, essential oils can provide powerful therapeutic benefits. The chemistry of an essential oil is very complex. As a result, each essential oil contains SEVERAL health promoting properties (with more uses constantly being discovered). The graphic below illustrates the constituents of Lavender essential oil.

Lavender Chemical Compounds

THE FREQUENCY OF AN ESSENTIAL OIL IS WHAT MAKES IT SO POWERFUL!

Frequency is a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between two points. EVERYTHING has an electrical frequency. The higher the frequency of our body, the better we can promote health and wellness. Essential oils possess a high frequency and can be used to increase the frequency of our body, thereby supporting our health.

YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS CAN BE USED AROMATICALLY, TOPICALLY, AND SOME CAN BE TAKEN INTERNALLY!

Inhaling essential oils affects the limbic system of the brain. Because the limbic system is directly connected to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can support the body and the mind. The graphic below illustrates how to use essential oils aromatically.

How to Use Essential Oils Aromatically

The skin is the largest organ of the body. When applied topically, essential oils are quickly absorbed, enter the blood stream, and can support the body and the mind. The graphic below illustrates how to use essential oils topically.

How to Use Essential Oils Topically

Some essential oils make excellent dietary supplements or food flavorings. When taken internally, essential oils can support the body. The label on each bottle of Young Living essential oil will tell you whether it is intended to be used as a dietary supplement. The graphic below illustrates how to use essential oils internally.

How to Use Essential Oils Internally

WHY YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS?

The therapeutic value of an essential oil is affected by the soil condition, fertilizer used, geographical region, climate, altitude, harvest season and methods, and the techniques used in the distillation process. Young Living carefully controls all of these things so that their essential oils can be used for therapeutic purposes. Young Living owns several of its own farms, has co-ops and partnerships with farms, and works with vendors. Young Living has very strict standards on these farms, with these vendors, and throughout the distillation and bottling stage of their essential oils. Young Living calls this their Seed to Seal process and as a result, refers to their oils as pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. You can learn more about Young Living’s Seed to Seal process by clicking HERE.

Young Living Seed to Seal

There are many essential oils on the market today. However, not all of them are safe or effective for therapeutic purposes. Low quality oils don’t offer any health benefits to us. In fact, using a low quality oil for therapeutic purposes is never recommended and can actually be toxic. There are no standards for essential oils. A label of “100% pure” or “all natural” does not guarantee a high quality essential oil. Even Young Living’s “pure, therapeutic grade” essential oil label is not regulated. Therefore, if you want to use your oils for therapeutic purposes, you need to ask yourself if you trust the company you purchase your essential oils from. Young Living created the label of “pure, therapeutic grade” as their stamp of approval – to tell you that their essential oils can most definitely be used to support, maintain, and affect overall health and wellness. I trust Young Living’s Seed to Seal process, which is why I choose to use Young Living essential oils! :)

WHICH ESSENTIAL OILS SHOULD YOU START WITH?

There are hundreds of different essential oils, but you don’t need that many essential oils to reap their benefits. An essential oil collection of 10-15 oils is really all you need to assist in supporting, affecting, and maintaining overall health and wellness. The Young Living Premium Starter Kit is the best way to get started in the oiling world! The graphic below illustrates all of the oils in that kit.
