To my readers: I have been with this company since 1997 and have been a major advocate of Gary Young and the products of this company. I am not an active business builder. I share some personal experiences as well as the reports from others. There is a lot of information to share but because of time I have not posted anything since August of 2013. My posts on this site started in 2006. For some unknown reason all of a sudden my material is in violation of some FDA rules and regulations. I suggested to Young Living to stand up against this governmental dictating bureaucracy. They will not as the income is too important than the principle. I had not intention of leaving. I love the products. The good news is I have become aware of some credible competitors where I can buy what I like at lower prices.
I am sorry Young Living is so weak and I am thinking Gary Young who is a fighter is not aware of this.
