Be careful with this MLM. The reason that you are paying a fortune is not for the quality necessarily but rather for the all the people involved within the commission structure. They also seem to have started a cult following and what I found strange is that they do not have any actual data to back their claims. When you expect people to pay 10x normal grocery prices, I would think the least a company can do is to provide some factual information that serves as a further step to assure the buyer that they are making the right decision. What I found strange is that they are not even organic certified which given their claims, I had no doubt that their products were at least that. And being USDA approved in my point of view is not even a high accomplishment given the relaxed measures that are used to determine that status. What I found particular disturbing, is that there is a mountain of controversy surrounding their founder D Gary Young. D stands for Donald by the way and not Doctor. Gary does not have anything further a high-school diploma although at least 4 times he has claimed to be a doctor and had his own practice. The last controversy that I could find was a video I have referenced below, watch it and keep in mind that Gary asked YouTube to take it off and they did for some time.

Lastly, their founder has been involved in a controversy in 1982 when he insisted that he deliver his daughter in a water birth and somehow led to the death of an otherwise healthy baby by keeping her 1 hour under water. Have included the article below, just search for "Water Birth Tragedy"

To conclude:
Mr. Young's colorful 30 year history as the founder and CEO of Young Living included such memorable moments as: (a) being prosecuted for practicing medicine without a license on multiple occasions; (b) running a now shuttered "Young Living Research Clinic" in Springville, Utah, (subsequently replaced by a Young Living clinic in Ecuador) where he employed a quack physician convicted of manslaughter; and (c) allegations he nearly killed a patient through vitamin C infusions which caused renal failure.

Everything that I have written is backed up by proof and I hope you guys can see that it is not worth it. When you see the ethics of the person who invented the product, do you honestly trust the standard they proclaim to follow? I did find another brand that might seem more promising as at least they are USDA approved and vegan and seems like in every country they do business with, they seem to have the proper regulating agency for that nation certify them, which is better than none. The prices seem to be similar to Young Living and doTerra which is worth checking out https://www.newdirectionsaromatics.com/products/essential-oils/?gclid=CjwKCAiAwZTuBRAYEiwAcr67OUUTBlLFAiGxUlvyB5muOBvZBL27AuyjSxOhxLTDhlkAx2skz-wP0xoCKloQAvD_BwE
