Meet Gary and Mary

Meet Gary and Mary Young


Over the course of more than two decades, Young Living has become a remarkable success story. Built from the ground up by husband and wife team D. Gary and Mary Young, Young Living has grown into a global phenomenon — largely a result of their tireless work ethic, uniquely complementary chemistry, and shared passion for their life’s work of sharing pure essential oils with the world. Read more about Gary and Mary’s story here.

In June of 2015, Gary voluntarily stepped down as CEO of the company to have more time to focus on writing books, philanthropic efforts, sharing his knowledge of essential oils and his many varied interests. Mary was promoted as Young Living’s new Chief Executive Officer where she has helped oversee the launch of many new initiatives and products, including the Savvy Minerals and Seedlings product lines.

Gary Young: A Modern-Day Pioneer

It’s no secret that D. Gary Young is the modern-day father of essential oils, but few people know the details of his life and what led him to unlocking the pure power of plants. Gary Young has dedicated his life to researching the traditional methods of distilling botanicals and pioneering Young Living’s proprietary Seed to Seal process.
