What Can Aromatherapy do for you? 
Discover how THE American Aromatherapist, D. Gary Young,
healed himself, and what ignited his passion for Essential Oils.

D. Gary Young started his life on a ranch in central Idaho with no indoor
plumbing nor electricity.

Crippling Injury

   On February 8, 1973, Gary Young suffered a crippling injury from a logging accident that changed his life forever. This accident -- which nearly cost him his life -- transformed him both physically and emotionally and would eventually impact the lives of countless people in ways he could have never imagined.

   Gary was raised in the central mountains of Idaho on a ranch with no indoor plumbing nor electricity. Learning at an early age to survive off the land, he left home at age 17 to seek his fortune in the wilderness of Canada. He homesteaded 320 acres and began building a sizable ranching and logging operation. It was here that he suffered a near-fatal logging accident.

   After three weeks in a coma and four months in intensive care, Gary found himself paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair for life, according to the doctors' prognoses. Following two years of intense pain and depression and three suicide attempts, he resolved to regain control of his life. He fasted on juice and water for almost a year and finally regained sensation in his toes, marking the beginning of his long and painful road toward recovery. Later he embarked on a worldwide investigation of natural medicine, from herbology and acupuncture to nutrition and naturopathy. This relentless research coupled with an iron determination enabled him to eventually regain his mobility and ability to walk, although not without pain.

Dramatic Improvement

   It was this pain that eventually led him to discover the potential of a powerful but little-known form of natural medicine -- essential oils. Within a very short time, Gary cast off the persistent pain that he had borne for almost 13 years as he began tapping the power of essential oils. by 1986 he was able to run a half-marathon, finishing 60th out of 970 participants.

Worldwide Search for Truth

   After receiving a master's degree in nutrition Gary opened a family practice in Chula Vista, California, and a research clinic in La Mesa, Mexico, where he conducted cutting-edge research in many areas of natural healing. He began investigating the effects that essential oils have on the blood as well as their ability to magnify the effects of other healing modalities, such as herbal medicine and acupuncture. His work was of such magnitude that in 1985 he received the Humanitarian Award from the State Medical Examiner's Office of Baja, California (one of only six ever awarded), for his research and successful treatment of degenerative disease. This research eventually led him to combine essential oils with herbal formulas.

   Building on his clinical research in the mid-1980s, Gary traveled across three continents and a half-dozen countries to investigate both traditional and modern uses of essential oils, gaining insights on every facet of essential oil production, from distillation and harvesting to seed selection and crop management.

   Despite the enormous power of essential oils, Gary was unable to fully harness their potential due to the highly varying quality of oils available at the time. While pure essential oils had the ability to produce spectacular results, Gary found that chemically altered or adulterated oils were often ineffective and even harmful.

New Avenues Open Up

   This motivated Gary to develop his own organic herb farming and distillation operation in 1993 under the name Young Living Essential Oils. Purchasing land in Utah and Idaho, he began cultivating lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), peppermint, melissa (lemon balm), clary sage, and many other herbs. He designed and built the largest, most technologically advanced distillery for the production of essential oils in North America, developing a proprietary distillation process that preserves the integrity of essential oils.

    In 1995, Gary was invited to Anadolu University in Eskisehir, Turkey, by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization to present his research on plant germination and organic farming, as well as his research to Weber State University on the properties of essential oils.

    Gary has continued to probe the fundamental basis of human health on his recent journey to Hunzaland in the Himalayan mountains of northern Pakistan -- home to some of the longest-living people known in the world. By investigating the Hunza people's dietary and lifestyle practices, Gary obtained important new insights on not only extending life but also avoiding disease.

    Over the years, Gary's knowledge of natural medicine and essential oils has become enormously valuable to countless people throughout the world. The company that Gary founded almost a decade ago to disseminate both traditional and modern knowledge of different healing modalities has grown to encompass more than 250,000 distributors in 20 foreign countries. "Essential oils have already transformed the way we deal with illness and aging, and they are continuing to revolutionize natural medicine," states Gary.

"I am grateful to my Creator for giving me a second chance at life and for the blessing of being able to walk again. I desire to share with others all over the world what I have discovered through my own healing."

What Is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is a broad and expanding field that scientist are just beginning to explore. Aroma reaches and influences the deepest human instincts. Aromatherapy means to treat with aroma through inhalation. Research has shown that we respond to aroma within one to three seconds. Aromatherapy also encompasses the topical application of essential oils. Because essential oils have a unique lipid-solution structure, they are able to easily pass through cell membranes, particularly of the skin, and diffuse into the bloodstream. They penetrate the skin the same way that the active ingredients in transdermal hormone or nicotine patches do.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from various parts of plants, including seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, and fruit. Essential oils are different from vegetable oils such as corn oil, peanut oil, and olive oil. They are not greasy and do not clog the pores like vegetable oils can.

Essential oils are chemically very complex, consisting of hundreds of different chemical compounds. They are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs. The distillation of an entire plant may produce only a single drop of essential oil.

Essential oils are subtle, volatile liquids. They are oxygenating and help transport nutrients to the cells of our bodies. Without oxygen, nutrients cannot be assimilated; so the oxygenating essential oils can help us maintain our health.

The essential oils of the plant and the human blood share common properties: they work as the chemical defense mechanism of the plant.

This similarity goes deeper. Essential oils have a unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the blood and tissues. The lipid-soluble structure of essential oils is very similar to the makeup of our cell membranes. The molecules of essential oils are also relatively small, giving them the ability to easily penetrate the cells. When topically applied to the feet or elsewhere, essential oils can travel throughout the body in a matter of minutes.

The concept of toxins in our toothpaste, soaps, and shampoos may be an easier introduction to Young Living Essential Oils.

Recent Background: On March 21, 2001, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a government agency, announced that they have completed a study of the levels of toxins found in human blood and urine. The toxins measured were chemicals contained in the ingredients of common household products, including soaps and shampoos. The major ingredient found in the studies was from the chemical compounds phthalates. They produce problems by causing cancer and because of their similarity to the female hormone, estrogen, which may affect our circulating estrogen levels. 

This sort of information is not new to Young Living distributors; however, it is to many people who are not. This study, and others to follow, will simply give us credibility when we talk to people about the chemical-free products we carry.

  • read your toothpaste label: the FDA now requires all fluoride toothpastes to carry this: "POISON WARNING: keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. if you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional assistance, or contact a POISON CONTROL CENTER IMMEDIATELY"
