Gary Young's Biography

Gary Young grew up in Idaho, and at the age of 17, moved to Canada to pursue a career in logging and ranching. His great dream was to carve a life of logging and ranching out of the great Canadian wilderness. His love for the outdoors and living close to nature in the rugged, untamed, mountainous environment was an empowering element of Gary’s life.  

After a crippling injury in his early adult years that nearly cost him his life, he dedicated his life to researching essential oils and natural ways to combat disease, preserve health, and promote natural and healthy lifestyles. Gary has since earned a degree in nutrition, a doctorate in naturopathy, and has gone on to become one of the foremost authorities on essential oils and their life-enhancing value in the world.  

Today, as founder of Young Living Essential Oils and The D. Gary Young Foundation, Gary Young travels throughout the world furthering his research, sharing his passion with others, and bringing unique essential oils and humanitarian aid to those in need.

D .Gary Young has led a full, if sometimes difficult life, but sees the value in all of his life experiences: "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 want to share with others all over the world what I have discovered through my own healing."
