On May 12, 2018, D. Gary Young passed away due to complications caused by a series of strokes. Gary Young was truly an inspirational man as he sought to provide healing and happiness to others throughout his life. His wealth of knowledge and dedication to homeopathic healing led to the founding of Young Living in 1993. Gary was known for his love of knowledge, but also for his constant desire to share that knowledge with those around him.
“Led on a journey of discovery by a lifetime of turning trials into triumphs, Gary became the World Leader in Essential Oils, touching the lives of millions of people around the globe. His was an epic, true-life adventure of perseverance, against all odds, achieving the impossible, and seeing his vision of taking essential oils into every home in the world. Today, millions of people carry his message of achieving emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being to those who are looking for a better way.”
Gary Young stopped at no length to improve and expand the essential oil industry. Much of his life was spent traveling around the world to find new plants and herbs to improve the lives of millions. On one such trip, Gary was shocked at the conditions of a small school that 40 young children studied in. This moment sparked Gary’s desire to not only help people with their health, but to also improve the lives of all he could. After that experience, Gary pushed to open the Young Living Academy, which has now provided a good education to many underprivileged children. The Young Living Foundation was established in 2009 and continues to improve the lives of children throughout the world, helping them to provide for their families and progress to a brighter future.

Throughout his life of hard work, Gary took the industry of essential oils and natural medicine to a new high. We will forever be grateful to the strides he made to improve our lives, as well as the natural health industry. Today, Mary Young—Gary’s wife—will continue his legacy and vision to change the world. We will greatly miss this inspirational leader!
