About Young Living

Young Living's community of wellness started small in 1993, when D. Gary Young and Mary Young developed their first organic herb farming and distillation operation. At the time, Gary Young had already discovered the incredible power of essential oils, but because the quality of available oils varied so greatly, he'd been unable to fully harness their potential. Mary's previous experience in the direct-selling industry enabled the Youngs to fulfill their vision and establish a business that would empower its members to share truly pure essential oils with the world.

After establishing Young Living in 1994, the Youngs developed more farmland in Utah and Idaho and began cultivating lavender, peppermint, melissa, clary sage, and many other herbs. Fueled by a growing demand for top-quality essential oils, Young Living designed and built the largest, most technologically advanced essential oil distillery in North America. In harmony with these efforts, Young Living developed its groundbreaking Seed to Seal® process, which preserves the integrity and potency of essential oils through every step of the production process. Through Gary and Mary's combined leadership, Young Living has grown to become the world leader in essential oils and wellness solutions.

Headquartered in Lehi, Utah, with offices in Australia, Europe, Canada, Japan, and Singapore, Young Living stays true to the Youngs' original vision. With Young Living's steadfast commitment to essential oil purity, they have inspired millions of people everywhere to experience nature's gifts of wellness, to create abundance as Young Living members, and to discover new opportunities for lifelong transformations.

Young Living Gives Back!

Young Living isn't just about essential oils, it's committed to making a difference in the world. Young Living is a purpose-driven company. Through the philanthropic efforts of the Young Living Foundation, Young Living is able to give back on a global scale! At our 2014 International Grand Convention, founder D. Gary Young said, “I never create a product for a profit. I do it for a purpose.” At every level of the company, Young Living is committed to making a difference.

How do they give back? They give back through the Young Living Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Young Living covers all administrative costs of the foundation, so 100% of every single tax-deductible donation goes directly to their carefully selected projects and partnerships. Young Living’s vision has long been to bring pure essential oils to every home in the world.

The Young Living Foundation is proud to help fulfill this vision throughout the developing world in several ways, including:

•Donating products to Young Living members holding fundraisers, events to raise awareness, and overseas missions

•Donating to domestic and global organizations

•Partnering with nonprofit organizations from Croatia to Uganda

From local fundraisers and service projects within the United States to supporting schools, orphanages, and organizations around the world, Young Living is dedicated to not only fulfilling but exceeding its corporate social responsibility. “Young Living’s mission has always been tied to making this world a better place and empowering and improving the lives of others,” said Nikki Davis, Senior Director of Global Philanthropy for Young Living and Executive Director of the Young Living Foundation. “We are proud to be able to provide much needed support to our global philanthropic partners as they work tirelessly to improve the lives of those they serve.”

The Young Living Foundation seeks partnerships and projects that align with its mission to empower individuals to defy human limitations by providing education, wellness, and business opportunities.
