Young Living’s community of wellness started in 1991 when D. Gary Young and Mary Young developed their first organic herb farm 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.
Fuelled 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 making Young Living oils meet all industry AFNOR and ISO standards.
“Through the painstaking steps of our proprietary Seed to Seal process, Young Living produces the best, most authentic essential oils in the world. We are committed to providing pure, powerful products for every family and lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of our essential oils.” ~ D. Gary Young
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, as well as farms around the world, Young Living stays true to the Young’s original vision.
