Giving Back Through the Young Living Foundation

Giving  Back Through the Young Living Foundation
As I reflect, I have sooo very many blessings I'm grateful for: clean water, electricity, clothing, a roof over my head, the list could go on, including, as well, all the wonderful relationships I enjoy. It's also a privilege to  share Young Living Oils & products with so many, then to hear from them how it's enriching & improving their lives.

Did you know Young Living covers ALL the administrative costs of our Foundation, so 100% of donations go directly to their six charities? (In addition to as needed projects like Hurricane & Earthquake disaster support)
There's 4 easy ways one can give:  1. Click on the website link     2. Round up your Young Living Product order. (if everyone did this, it adds up to $4 million annually)  3. Add a donation to your order at the check-out page  
4. When ordering on Amazon at .  (find Young Living Foundation to select as your beneficiary , It might be under D. Gary Young Foundation, the previous name) 

These are the ongoing projects & a brief description of each one. (For more in depth information see link above)
1. Hope for Justice: Freeing & Restorative Care for those stuck in the horrible slave trade.
2. Rebuild Nepal: Post 2015 Earthquake rebuilding. Some homes & 1 school are rebuilt with more to come.  Incomes are  restored by offering training & local trades.  The new school is our 2d Young Living Academy, with child sponsorships available.
3.  African Hearts: Rescuing orphaned kids from the slums into transitional homes providing food, health care, clothing & schooling. Each home has resident caring  adults to help the children grow & flourish with love.
4.  Young Living Academy Ecuador:  Education & trade school learning, for kids K-12, serving now 340 students. 2 classes have already graduated.  Each child is sponsored to provide meals, uniforms & health care. 
5.  Soul Hope: Freedom from foot-related diseases, isolation & possible gangrene. Providing medical care & shoes to help remove & remain Jigger free. (A disease carrying, pain causing parasitic sand flea that imbeds into bare feet in certain African Areas. ) 
6.  Healing Faith Uganda: Malaria eradication & treatment. Many with malaria have received treatment & thousands of mosquito nets have been distributed.

This photo is of our founder D. Gary Young & his son arriving in Yarsa, Nepal bringing warm blankets & equipment needed to start the initial rebuilding. He, his teenage son & other volunteers started debris clearing to the surprise of the villagers, who had never seen any important "dignitaries" actually lift a hand to help. They were most shocked an American Teenager would put so much sweat effort into all he did, sleeping in a tent with no available showers, as well as playing soccer with the village kids.  In winter of '16, Gary mushed through 2 freezing dog sled races in Alaska, all with the purpose of raising funds to build more houses. 


I am thrilled to introduce Young Living's  new "Gentle Mist"  Portable Hand Held Diffuser (item #5341) !!! This is perfect for facial care, travel, college students, at the office & more!

About Essential Oils

About Essential Oils
Essential Oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits.  Young Living, as the World Leader, has been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions worldwide to physical, emotional &/or spiritual wellness that can be truly life changing!  I have found this to be true in both my life, my friends, family and clients.
Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping and cold pressing, pure essential oils are powerful. Anytime you hold Young Living's Essential Oils, you hold Nature's Pure essence! 

How to Use Essential Oils
You can access their power through diffusion, topical application and/or dietary consumption. Most people order our Premium Starter Kit, as it contains the best of everything, all the information you'll need to start using the most popular 11 different bottles of oil, along with our beautiful, yet convenient diffuser, as well as other goodies.
Young Living is the only company to introduce a "Vitality" Line of approved ingestible Essential Oils. These maybe added to liquids or drinks.  (Every day I add Lemon or Peppermint to my water glass. I also enhance the taste & amp up  my health by adding a drop of either Orange or Thieves to my tea. In the summer, I've added Lime to Seltzer water with a dash of Stevia)
The other uses for our Vitality Line is to enhance favorite recipes, our Citrus Fresh Vitality adds a unique zing to roasted chicken. Our Young Living  Pinterest page (click on at bottom) is full of recipe ideas. Many of us have added certain Vitality Oils to vegie capsules as well.

It's time for you to enhance every aspect of your health, be it physically, emotionally and/or spiritually. 
Our Essential oils support every body  system! They are perfect for you,  your family, including children or your furry friends.
 I also recommend you embrace the Young Living Lifestyle by adding our Essential Oil Infused products for all your daily needs such as personal, skin & oral care. You will want to order our flagship Thieves Products, like our Concentrated Cleaner, Hand Purifier and Spray. Our Thieves Cough Drops will get rid of that telltale tickle in the throat no one wants to experience.  Our Supplement line is enhanced with essential oils to make them the most bio-available to your body & boost their effect. 

You'll receive more than a product, you'll receive a personal wellness advisor!

Pets, Part 2

Pets, Part 2
Young Living has an entire line of pure plant based products specifically formulated to take  care of your furry family member.
 We have three Essential Oils that are often used together for supporting great skin health for your pet.
1. Puriclean (#5268) for a quick skin cleansing spritz.  2. Infect Away (#5271)  & 3. Mendwell (#5269) can be used topically. 

RepelAroma (#5272) is formulated to give your pet freedom while outside.  Spritz thoroughly on fur, then rub in.                                          
ParaGize  (#5270)  1 or 2 drops is very supportive, especially after outdoor exploration or swimming.  
Animal Scents Shampoo (#5167) effectively cleans, conditions & protects your pets coat.     
 Animal Scents Ointment (#5165) is a soothing salve with Myrrh & other protective essential oils.                                           
Animal Scents Dental Pet Chew (#5761) is a unique tasty treat to support oral care & remove plaque.

Dogs and horses resonate very well with essential oils, we recommend you dilute accordingly to the size of your pet. 
Seek the advice of a competent trained veterinarian with knowledge of essential oil use for specific type of disease treatment. There are also Essential Oil Animal Reference Guides written with wonderful tried and true usages for training, grooming, travelling and more. 
Be aware, Cats metabolize oils very differently, due to their liver, it's critical to use only therapeutic oils.  You may find this blog helpful to understand more

The  best gift you can give your pet, besides feeding them a nutritional diet, is a non-toxic environment!
 It's important to especially avoid fabric softeners, aerosol sprays, plug-ins & many chemical based cleaners. Our plant based Concentrated Thieves Cleaner has over 25 usages for your home.

(B.T.W. if any of the above mentioned oils are temporarily out of season, please know we have many other essential oil substitutions, contact me for additional ideas)


Communication with ones furry friends about what they need to stay healthy or calm may at times  be  challenging.  There is however, hundreds of testimonies about how true therapeutic essential oils can help! Some of the most commonly used oils are:
