I first heard about Young Living in September 1998. I had attended a women’s networking meeting. We were all business owners, taking turns presenting our business to the other women present. I was there for my natural therapies business…and one of the other women stood up and said “I have a cassette about essential oils to give to anyone who is interested”.
I loved natural therapies and essential oils, and had a modest collection of my favourite oils from various brands. So I took a copy of her cassette. It was Gary Young talking on “The Missing Link”, and that one recording changed my life!
That was 24 years ago, and I had that “Ah ha” moment when I listened to Gary. What he said about essential oils made sooooooo much sense! At that time I was dealing with a benign tumour, and I knew the deeper lesson for me was that I was giving so much to others, but not balancing the scales by giving to myself.
So I decided that Young Living was the perfect way for me to give back to me. I went onto Essential Rewards (in those days it was called “autoship”) and I’ve never looked back. I’ve been ordering every single month without fail, for 24 and a half years. And it’s never been the same order twice. Each month, I order whatever I’m running out of…and whatever I want to spoil myself with!
I still remember my first 3 orders, way back in 1998. How weird is that? It’s because they were soooooo impactful on my life. My first order was Clove and Immupower. My second order was Awaken and Abundance. And my third order was the Essential 7 Kit (we didn’t have the Starter Bundles in those days, so this was the next best thing).
I’m so grateful that Young Living came into my life. It’s given me so much more than I ever expected. I wouldn’t ever want to be without them.
Yet I also joke and say that Young Living is the “Best decision I NEVER made”…and here I’m talking about the opportunity to share Young Living with others, and in return create some income on the side.
I was absolutely clear that I was only going to use these magical substances for myself….well, maybe I’d also use them to help some clients (just the special ones, right?).
I’m laughing as I write this, because one of my clients (Margot) had such an amazing experience with Joy oil in a session with me that she wanted more information, and wanted to purchase some oils. And a week or two later I was telling one of my best friends that I’d just purchased a kit of oils and how much I was enjoying them, and she pricked up her ears and said, “Can I buy a kit too?” And then another friend wanted a kit….and so it went for me.
And once I saw that I was earning enough income in commissions from Young Living to pay my mortgage each month….well, wasn’t that an exciting moment! That’s when I started paying a lot more attention to Young Living’s business opportunity, and began even more actively supporting the customers and members who were following in my footsteps on this oily adventure, and paying attention to the people around me who would benefit from these beautiful products.

My Skincare Journey
Shen P. writes:
I’m very fortunate to call this beautiful human, Nicole (pictured here on the left), one of my oldest friends. She is the one who introduced me to Young Living and I’m so glad she did. I had some skin issues I couldn’t resolve and this one day when I caught up with Nicole I noticed how flawless her skin was. She said she had been using this new skincare system called ‘Bloom’ by Young Living. And I was all in.
I became a Young Living member and bought my first Bloom set. It’s the best decision I ever made! It opened my eyes to a whole other world, a low tox lifestyle which I had never even thought about. After a while I also started using the oils, and have never looked back
From Skeptic To Believer

It was my beautiful Mum (Maria) who was insisting that I try the oils after being so skeptical!!!
Mum was so excited to share with me after she attended a home gathering at another friend’s house.
Using the oils has changed my life in every way possible!! I love the photo on the left (that’s me in the middle)…through this journey I’ve been privileged to make friendships with and be taught by the beautiful Hazel (far left), Elizabeth (standing) and Jen (far right).
Pssst… Pass It On!

Surprisingly, I first heard about Young Living from my husband and daughter who had just come home from a market. Hubby treated himself to a 20 minute reflexology session while he was at the market and during the session a conversation was had about these amazing natural products and how you can make your own bath bombs, body spritzers etc.
My family know how much I love to make things but more importantly, NATURAL products, so they excitedly told me about a monthly meeting that occurred in our community where I could go and learn about these oils and how to use them.
The rest is history and it goes to show, you just don’t know who is listening or who will get the message. For me, my 10 year old daughter encouraged me to go do something I love and she was right… the Universe can work in the most amazing ways.
It’s a Family Affair

My beautiful daughter, Angelique, introduced me to Young Living at a time when I was really struggling with health issues.
I felt like my health was spiralling out of control. I’d just recover from one illness and I’d come down with another. It was exhausting and I felt tired and depressed a lot of the time.
It seemed to be getting worse not better, and I knew that antibiotics were taking a toll on my health. The toxic load in turn caused autoimmune and leaky gut issues, but I realised that if I was ever going to turn this around, I needed to reduce the toxic load on my body.
So with Angelique’s help, these beautiful, magical essential oils became an integral part of my life.
I also started switching out the toxic products at home for Young Living’s natural plant-based ones, taking some of their supplements and making sure I took my NingXia Red every day.
There’s still a way to go, but I definitely feel like I’m on the right track now. I’m feeling so much healthier and happier than I was eight years ago. This has been a game-changer for me. I’m forever grateful to my lovely daughter for introducing me to Young Living all those years ago.
New Oils & New Friendships

One and a half years ago I went to a dog event. Me and Fee, that’s my dog, subscribed to a dog massage session. The man who guided us through the wonderful experience also let us use Young Living oils. There was also a stand where the Young Living oils were displayed. There I met Mieke, such a calm, nice and warm person! She introduced me to the oils.
Mieke recommended a handful of oils to support me on my journey of health and wellbeing. Little did I know what Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint could do for me, but the rest of the day I felt great! Ever since then, I’ve been a fan of Young Living, and of Mieke. Thanks Mieke!!
More Than A Company, It’s A Lifestyle

Amanda first introduced me to Young Living several years ago, and I can never thank her enough! Not just having the oils and the products, but the entire Young Living company has transformed my family for the rest of our lives. Plus, we also gained an amazing family friend!
We truly are grateful and blessed. She first introduced us by trading a Premium Starter Kit (as it was called then – now it’s called a Starter Bundle) for classes that I was teaching at the time. It didn’t take us long to see the difference in the Young Living oils versus the ones we had previously been using. Since then, we haven’t looked back.
Essential oils empowered my life
Beady K. writes:
Back in 2011 I was suffering with a range of health issues. After trial and error with so many practitioners, I finally found one who was able to help me. He told me that my physical issues were purely the result of suppressed emotions, which he proceeded to work on. I was amazed at the difference it made physically, just by working on emotions. I wish more people knew this!
One day he had a row of tiny bottles lined up on a shelf and he was so excited. He told me that these would help me even more on my emotional journey.
I was intrigued. He wrote down his member number and suggested that I order the Feelings Kit, which I did. I started applying the oils daily, based on some research I’d done online.
The oils in the Feelings Kit helped to shift and release so much emotional junk I had been hanging on to for decades. It was truly miraculous! They have intelligence and know exactly where to go to release trauma, anger, resentment, etc. Of course I set up a wholesale account to take advantage of the 24% discount, and never looked back. Thank you so much to Young Living!
