Young Living and Do Terra Essential Oils — New Age and Occult Multi-level Marteting in the Church

“You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices.”

Leviticus 18:22

Since the beginning of time people have been using oils for medicinal and spiritual purposes. In fact, Ancient Egypt is known for its mystical wisdom in oils. This is nothing new. There is nothing good or evil about oil. It is an object. It is natural, just like cannabis or crystals. The problem is always in HOW men try to use it.

I have noticed a sudden and alarming trend of Christian women promoting essential oils for medicinal purposes. I am all for natural remedies. If chicken soup can make you better, cook it, eat it, enjoy it! But some of these companies have very serious new age and occult connections.

Before I go on, I want to just state that before I became a believer I dabbled in the occult. So I am aware that Wiccans and Pagans have been using oils all along. I am very sensitive when I see promotional descriptions and practices that incorporate pagan beliefs, listed in the oil catalogs being passed around my Facebook newsfeed.

In fact, you can’t even sneeze at my church without some woman pulling out her portable oil kit for a quick blend that she wants to rub on you to ward off your sneezes. Some of these precious women are quite obsessed. I have never seen this level of enthusiasm with Pampered Chef!

Before I go on, I will say that there are oils that I have used. I have used Tea Tree oil for fungal infections and Pepermint oil on my chest during bronchitis. These oils have been used by our grandmas the same way. It isn’t anything new.

BUT, the way Young Living and some of these other companies market their oils is plain old witchcraft.

It is deceiving too, because Young Living has a DVD that they sell called, “Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture” that you can buy along with a kit of those twelve oils (for three hundred dollars). They are acting like the fact that Jesus was given Frankinsense and Myrhh means that all of their practices are fully Biblical.

But they aren’t.

I will prove it.

Gary Young is the founder of Young Living oils and he is a “professing” Christian. You can find him discussing the twelve oils of Scripture at a website called In this article, Young talks about the Third Eye being opened by the use of essential oils. This is also referred to by the Pineal Gland. This is not a Christian belief. It isn’t even a scientific belief. It is only a pagan belief.

 “Many people have said that we communicate to our Father through the pineal gland. I have not found documentation on that, so I don’t know that it is a correct statement, but I do believe when you have a spiritual experience you get this warm, burning, fuzzy feeling in your bosom. The chemical that creates that warm fuzzy feeling in your bosom is secreted from the pineal gland, and that may be the reason we are told by some scientists that the pineal gland is responsible for that communication. Very special” (Young).

This is so totally New Age and demonic. He says this in the section called “Increasing Spiritual Communication.” Well, if he was actually communicating with the God of the Bible, because this oil opened his third eye, then why is he spouting demonic lies and not Biblical truth?

He goes on to advise,

“Let me share this with you–if you want to have a beautiful experience, take three drops of Cedarwood and mix it with six drops of Sandalwood and one drop of Cassia–then go into that sacred, quiet space and put this on and do your prayers and your meditations, and when you regain consciousness, write down what you remember. It will be a beautiful experience for you.” (Young)

Regain consciousness? What kind of experience is this? Usually when I pray, and have a good time with the Lord I am not in an altered state of consciousness. This is so occult.

If you go to Young Living’s website you can easily find the page dedicated to their oil blends. This is where we can easily see the truth behind this company.

To really understand where I am going, you need to understand what this type of witchcraft is. I am sure you have all heard the word potion before. And maybe in a Bible Study you have heard the word for sorcery in Greek is Pharmakeia (Strongs Greek 5331). These words refer to medicines or drugs that are combined together to accomplish a physical or spiritual intention. It is a potion.

This is exactly how witches have been using oils, way before Christians got involved. And this is exactly how Young Living is openly marketing their oils.

Young Livings “oil blends” are blatant potions.

3300Look at the one they call “Abundance”–here is the description:

“Abundance™ is created to enhance the frequency of the harmonic magnetic energy field that surrounds us. This higher frequency creates what is called “the law of attraction,” which refers to the things we attract to ourselves. Abundance opens us to a wealth of possibilities.”

download (2)This is so satanic. In fact, they even use the phrase “law of attraction” which is the whole basis for the occult book The Secret. The Berean Call ministry says,  “The Secret is not a secret at all, but recycled Hinduism, shamanism, and New Age folly. One of many huge lies is its claim: “You create your own reality with your mind.” This was the serpent’s false promise to Eve–the promise of godhood”  (The Secret Seduction)

3330Another occult oil blend offered by Young Living is “Dream Catcher”– here is the description:

“Dream Catcher™ is an exotic formula designed to enhance the process of dreaming and visualization. The ability to hold onto your dreams – positive dreams that move you forward emotionally and spiritually – can lead to a greater ability to realize your desires and stay on the path of fulfillment. Dream Catcher also protects against negative dreams that may cloud your vision.”

An OIL can enhance visualization, and spiritual dreams? This is not a medicine. This is a potion. This is occult.

“Trauma Live” says it is:

“a calming, grounding blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils formulated to help release buried emotional trauma resulting from accidents, neglect, the death of a loved one, assault, or abuse. Left unchecked, emotionally draining episodes may be at the root of fatigue, anger, and restlessness.”

“Inspiriation” helps you connect spiritualy, just like pagans did!—

“Inspiration™ includes oils traditionally used by the native peoples of Arabia, India, and North America for enhancing spirituality, prayer, meditation, and inner awareness. It creates an aromatic sanctuary for those seeking quiet meditation and spirituality.”

Another oil that combines paganism with pseudo science —

“Australian Blue™ is a powerful, aromatic essence that unites ancient aboriginal wisdom with today’s scientific knowledge about essential oils to uplift and inspire the mind and heart. This exotic essential oil blend has sweet, earthy undertones responsible for its calming and stabilizing effects.”

And “Aroma Life” helps your life force, or vital energy (chakra) —

“Aroma Life™ combines the harmonizing effects of ylang ylang with known powerhouses cypress, helichrysum, and marjoram. Pulsing with life, this vibrant blend energizes your life force. It is best applied over heart energy – front and/or back.”

Uhm, yeah. Your life force is a New Age occult word for psychic energy. Another word for this is Chi or Prana. Hindus believe in this. It is totally new age. I don’t want to rub oil on me that will affect any creepy energy in me! No thank you!

If you click on the “Balance” page you will see them discuss this life force a little more:

“The world moves at a blistering pace. Rediscover tranquility when you slow down and seek out the small moments of bliss that keep spiritual and emotional wellness in balance.

Tap into your own vital life energy with pure essential oils and blends formulated for their ability to promote inner peace and emotional well-being. Our Balance products can guide you to your spiritual and emotional center, helping you live fully in the present moment.”

Here is the description for the oil called “Friends”—

“A social circle, comprised of both friends and acquaintances, is vital to our well-being. It is valuable to expand and improve your friend base as you pursue a life in Oola.

The INFUSED Friends™ Inspired by Oola essential oil blend has been specially formulated to bring harmonic balance to the energy centers of the body, which encourages feelings of self-worth, empowerment, confidence, and awareness.

Friends affirmation: I am blessed with empowering, healthy relationships.

Part of the INFUSED 7 kit which includes the Inspired by Oola® essential oil blends: Faith™, Fitness™, Finance™, Friends™, Family™, Field™, and Fun™

“Sensation” is for sex, “Slique” is for thinness, “Abundance” is for money, “Release” helps you deal with repressed anger, “Present Time” helps you move on from the past, “Calming” helps your kids behave, “Motivation” helps you get things accomplished, “Longevity” helps you look younger, “Common Sense” helps you make good decisions, and “Valor” helps support your energy alignment in your body, or your Chi.

This is insane.

And I have Christian friends that want me to come to their house on a Saturday for an oil party. Where they will try to persuade me to spend HUNDREDS of dollars on these oils! But who doesn’t want happiness, money, beauty, and health? Who doesn’t want to deal with anger, with just a simple dab of oil? It is so seductive! And it smells good!

And then I am told that if I want to get the oils even cheaper, I can become a representative too! And I can give my own parties, and tell other people that these oils have miraculous powers!

DoTerra is another popular company. I think it is actually more popular with the people I know. It seems to have a less New Agey feel to it. But it still offers oil blends that promise health, peace, beauty, thinness, balance, and mental clarity. It just does it in a trendier and more “mainstream” way. It is popular in upper middle class young families. That is who they primarily market to.


A picture of a concerned mother rubbing DoTerra on a sick child.

Most of the young moms at our church get sucked into these oils as a way to safely treat their sick children. Instead of going to the doctors, just rub an oil blend on a sick child and they will be better in hours. I can’t tell you how many times I have read this online. Who doesn’t want to make their sick children feel better?

A few months back I was invited to a DoTerra oil party. The invitation listed some special services that would be available at the party. Reflexology–which is a great foot massage, combined with psychic energy healing. As well as “Zyto Scans” which proport to diagnose/not diagnose you with a biochemical report on what oils you need to buy. You just put your hand on a planchette (cough cough)– I mean sensor and it reads your energy. Then it tells you how much stuff you need to buy! At the very least it is a scam, at the worst it is occult.

These zyto scans and essential oil companies want you to believe what they are saying, but they conveniently put this disclaimer at the bottom of all thier materials:

“*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease.”

But buy our stuff anyway!

Now here is some information “From the Witches Cupboard” on how oils can be used as potions.

Spiritual Oils can be used in a vast number of ways. Your oils can be one of the most important tools in your ritual space. Candles, crystals, amulets, talismans and other charms may be anointed with Spiritual Oils and this is really a great way to turn simple mundane items into items of magickal power and energy as well as charge already magickally empowered ritual tools.

Ritual Witchcraft Oils can also be used to anoint the body. If you are using an Oil to use for this purpose, be sure that the oil is skin safe. Some essential oils, such as cinnamon and clove, can cause a severe reaction to the skin and should really be used quite sparingly. Spiritual Oils that are applied to the body bring the wearer the energies of the oil, so a Power Oil will give you give you a boost up, a Courage Oil will give you strength and bravery in the face of your fears and adversaries, and a Blessing Oil will convey the grace of the Goddess upon yourself and your ventures. (

So it seems pretty similar to what we have just been reading.

In fact, if you go to a pagan oil dealer you will find oil blends for sale that have the same claims that Young Living and DoTerra have. Check out the Organic Witch.

“Nothin’ Says Lovin’ Like Somethin’ from the Coven!

Greetings! This lens is a part of my Witchcrafts, Magic & Spells series. I have covered the basics of what magic is (and isn’t), as well as how it works. I have also, in this series, given a guide to common tools associated with modern Witchcraft. Now, we move on to some of my favorite spell components…oils and herbs.

All things in nature are imbued with specific magical properties and associations. By choosing the right ingredients, you will lend the appropriate energies to your spells and recipes that will align with your intent.

Witchcraft is both an art and a science, that requires study and knowledge, and lots of practice to become adept. As you begin to create your own spells, recipes for oils, potions and brews, you will find this guide very handy for your research.” (Witch Crafts: Guide to Oils and Herbs).

Now if you think that these oil companies are not using psychic energy to charge their oils go ahead and read what Gary Young from Young Living oils has to say about it:

Sharing Oil Energy Connections

Let me share a concept that we are going to get into later this week. You hold the oil in your hand and project your thoughts–whether you actually hold that oil and give it a blessing. To me, it isn’t the focalness of what you are saying that determines whether that oil has been blessed for that purpose, but the fact that you have directed your energy into that substance. That is what enhances the substance to do more and go further than it would ordinarily.

That is an area where people say, “ooh–now we are getting out in left field here. This is starting to sound like voodoo medicine.” Believe me, if anyone has that feeling, write it down! Before class is over, I am going to show you scientifically how that works. It’s very frustrating for me at times when I talk to people about prayer or meditation or focusing thought without words and making things happen. We are so programmed to think..”Oh, you can’t possibly do that..that’s the workings of the devil.”

All That is Good Comes of God

Somewhere in Galatians it says, “All things that are good are of me.” Write that down and keep that in mind.. “All things that are good are of me.” Go look it up. That will do you more good than me doing it for you. It’s there. “All things that are worthy or of good report..” It’s a beautiful scripture. When somebody starts to criticize you about what you are sharing with them and saying these are the workings of the devil, just pull out that scripture and read it to them. If they are an atheist, it won’t do you much good–and that is when you just stomp on their toe! Tell them if they had more faith, their toe would heal quicker! (12 Oils of the Bible, Gary Young)

Gary Young is practicing witchcraft.

Young Living oils are part of a demonic invasion in the church. Christian women are selling this stuff, believing this stuff, and rubbing it all over their precious babies at bedtime.

Like I said, these practices are not at all Biblical.

I have proved it.

Not only is Gary Young practicing witchcraft, but he has a really shady personal history. According to Dr. Eva Briggs,

“By the early 1980’s Young had moved to Spokane, Washington. Although he lacked any training in medicine, obstetrics, or midwifery, he insisted on delivering his first wife’s baby underwater in a whirlpool bath. He left the healthy baby under water for an hour. The otherwise normal healthy infant drowned. Young claims that he subsequently operated a clinic in Mexico that treated cancer patients with laetrile. Laetrile is a useless and dangerous drug that can harm or kill people because it forms cyanide in the body. It is illegal, and it is something of which Young should be ashamed, rather than proud. From Mexico, Young moved to California and opened a clinic offering supposed treatments for cancer and other illnesses. He claimed falsely at that time to be an M.D. He was arrested in California in 1988 for a variety of charges related to the sale of ineffective and worthless medical treatments. Young then returned to the Spokane area. He was arrested on January 10, 1994 for assaulting several family members with an axe. This behavior is from a man who claims to be deeply religious and spiritual. And what about Young’s claims to be an N.D., or naturopathic doctor? They are false. His “degree” is a worthless piece of paper purchased from a notorious diploma mill called Bernadean University. With this worthless credential, Young has NEVER been licensed to practice naturopathy in Utah or any place else.” (The Real Story of Gary Young and Young Living Essential Oils)

That is scary. And yet people will pay three hundred dollars for the 12 oils of the Bible and a DVD telling you that this stuff is legit, all while telling you to use your psychic energy to enhance the oils.

This is insanity.

But it has conned a bunch of godly that women I love.

I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t see one of my friends promoting another oil party, or raindrop technique, or miracle oil occurrence.

Before you think I am saying that it is wrong to put Mentholatum on your chest when you have the flu. I am not. But I would ask you to consider, if you are involved with these companies, if you think it is good or evil to promote a company that is involved in New Age and occult practices.

I would ask you to consider if you think it is okay to have in your home an oil blend that is supposed to affect you spiritually.

I personally, would choose to throw away all oil blends that promise me money, visualization, life energy, etc. The list goes on. That is witchcraft and I will have nothing to do with witchcraft under my roof. The same way I would not have a satanic album in my CD collection (a compact disc is not evil, but the music is). The same way I won’t have a Ouija board in my house (a cardboard game is not evil, but divination is).

Does that make sense?

I would have nothing to do with parties where reflexology and zyto scans are being used to condition people to accept energy healing, and spend copious amounts of money on false promises.


God bless you!!!

  1. Myra says:

    Thanks so much for the article which is really helpful. I didn’t realize it until I went to their class and saw your article. Meanwhile, Jesus and disciples never and ever taught us to use essential oils to Worship God or to get closer to God but use His words, prayers and hymn thru Holy Spirit.

    Btw, it should be Leviticus 18:3. Please edit it.

  2. P.N. says:

    I like essential oils, but cannot stand the amount of money they charge, so I found other brands to use, brands that actually call the oils by the plants they use, rather than weird names like “Abundance” or whatever. I rather use something that implies what it is or what is for, than some weird name that makes no sense to me. Also, I rather purchase oils from a “clean” source, without having to pay extra for the “brand”. I sold DoTerra for like 2 months, then couldn’t afford it anymore. God’s plan for me doesn’t involve “selling” anything. I don’t know about others, but it is doubtful. I love the way oils work, but I believe they only go so far, prayers, healthy foods, and lots of rest do the rest. Thank you. (BTW, Bible mentions annointing with oil as well, just something to consider). Thanks.

  3. Anonymous says:

    I agree this is witch craft. I encountered a witch back in 2001 before I came to Christ who gave me a potion. I looked at the essential oil book and the instructions sounded like Wicca potions. There are women in my church who sell essential oils who are very sick I wonder if these oils have something to do with it.

    • Anonymous says:

      My mom was introduced to oils through women in her church, she is now suffering from a terrible skin condition. I’m not sure if there is a connection, but that is what prompted me to research the connection between witchcraft and essential oils. She has givens me a whole lot of oils and now I am not sure I really want to keep them.

      • Nora says:

        Hi Anonymous,
        This happened to me too. I thought it was eczema and saw two dermatologists which did not help either.
        Things got so bad that my face started peeling off and pus was oozing in the the night while I sleep. Combined with the antihistamine drugs given by the doctors made my whole face and eyes to swell causing gross deformation.
        With prayers and stillness, I heard a voice to stop everything. I did so and my swelling started to go down. Later on, recommend by a friend, I consulted an Immunologist who conducted many tests on me. Diagnosis was Type 3 Hypersensitivity – the delayed sort of allergy that could affect your whole body, not just the area exposed to the oils. And spot on – the allergens were all the essential oils and caused my body to also succumb to other natural stuff like Lemongrass, Cilantro, Black Pepper, Roses.
        I was heartbroken but submitted that God wants me to live simply and rely on His healing alone. I have since recovered and live normally although I am more cautious about the claims of these “healing” merchants! Yes, I was also duped by Young Living. My upline on learning of my condition never bothered to find out or even extend any concern.

  4. Kimyasha says:

    Are prescription drugs witchcraft? Bc the definition you used should in fact include any man made artificial or natural concoction that says it can change you life, or has the ability to alter your mindstate… Don’t you agree? So BigPharma as well as little pharma ie small companies or mommies in their kitchens are practicing witchcraft. When Jesus took mud and placed it on a blind man’s eyes was that witchcraft? When he used his very own spit on someone’s eyes was that witchcraft? I need clarification please. Thanks

    • jsaylor7 says:

      I have used essential oils for about 18 years. When I first started i was involved with a couple who were very involved with Young living, Ithanks be to the Father God He gives Hihs children discernment. Gary young is not a true believer and is in fact misguiding thousands into new age practices. After praying about it I know for me it is ok to use essential oils for therapuetic pupose and that they are far better for one than most pharma. God the Father created every plant of the field for our use and I see nothing wrong with using essential oils for ones health. we truly must be careful abuot the companies we buy them from and must NEVER use them for any spiritual reason at all. As far as having things in your home that are tied to new age and witchcraft ant satan well…there again we must use the brains God gave us plus His discernment the money we carry in our wallets every day of our lives is plastered with occult symbolism and illuminati wording. yet we have to use it if we are to eat. many companies support ungodly things and we can do research and not buy from them ..this is how I see it. TRUST in the Lord with all your heart and He will lead you in the right path…Maranatha

  5. Mandy says:

    This article was great! I have been using young living, thinking it was Christian based but I was very wrong. Do you know of any legit Christian based oil companies? I hate medicine and love oils but do not want to support something that clearly is against God.

    • Jayna Stein says:

      Hi, Mandy! There are many good quality essential oils available. I would encourage you to look for wild-crafted or organic and look at their growing and harvesting practices.Also look for oils that have the GS/MS testing available to view. It is important also to know the latin name of the oil you are looking for. Also, cost is a factor. If they are very inexpensive you can be pretty certain that the have been cut with other oils, etc. Unfortunately, the term “pure” means nothing as it only has to be 5% of the oil to be called pure. There are many excellent books available to help you learn this information. “Essential Oils Ancient Medicine” by Dr. Josh Axe is an excellent place to start – or you can find him on the internet to read for no cost! One company that I feel good about recommending is Plant Therapy. They meet all the above criteria that I have mentioned without the cost or obligation of the MLM companies. Hope this helps! Jayna Stein Certified Essential Oil Coach

    • I buy mine from PipingRock and New Directions Aromatics both are online and the prices are very reasonable. I just use oils for medicinal purposes or cleaning agents in my home.

    • Anonymous says:

      The NOW brand is a great company without all the weird stuff from what I can see. They also offer some organic oils 😊

  6. Sky says:

    Hi. Thank you for posting this information. I noticed you focused on their oil “blends” that promise to bring certain results. It seems to me that you’re not against using single ingredient pure plant oils that have nothing blended with them. I’ve never been in business with any oil companies and I’ve only bought single ingredient, pure plant oils. Frankincense, peppermint, lavender, teatree, lemon and rosemary. Some are great for making a natural deodorant, etc. My point/question is, do know of an oil source that has the same quality of pure oils that are pure enough to be taken internally and aren’t subject to the same spiritual garbage as Doterra and Young living?

    • jason monaco says:

      Actually, yes. Plant therapy is a brand that is purer than young living and doterra. Now about ingesting the oils is a tricky deal. Because it is natural doesn’t mean it is safe. Cocaine is natural, sulfur is natural, and plenty of berries are natural but not all aready safe. Plant therapy does not push any religious juju with their product. Only health benefits.

    • Personally, I don’t use oils orally. There is no way to know dosage and reactions.

  7. RC says:

    So I’m good to go if I grow my own lavender and peppermint and muddle it in olive oil in my own kitchen when I have an allergic reaction (plants are the best medicine) but if I buy an oil I’m partaking in witchcraft, this is a very very very very “blanket statement article using an old testament scripture but I don’t know about you there’s the whole new testament about being covered in the blood of Christ and I walk with Him daily and my Bible says If I’m born again I am a new creation and the things of old are gone. Let’s live in the freedom He has for us, Not the chains of the old testament. Our God looks at the heart of man, You can be putting your coffee before Christ just as much as an Oil or an Asprin. I love that on days where I forgot to pray for my sinus pain to leave before I apply something NOTHING changes about the way the Lord looks at me with love and favor. I am His and He is mine. Cary on ladies – in all our ways however silly or different.

  8. Tina Meredith says:

    God put all that we needed here on earth for our benefit. Of course Satan will come in and twist anything good from God to suit his purposes. I hope you don’t celebrate Christmas or Easter because those are pagan holidays or let your children go trick or treating on Halloween because that is truly a night of worshipping Satan. God gave us oils from the beginning of time and how you use them – in a manner that is for evil or good – that is based on individuals belief. I love my YL essential oils and I praise God every day for them. I have seen countless people including myself get well from prayer and using oils. Call it what you want – that’s not my belief.

  9. The use of the oils is not spiritually contaminating as I see it, it is when the user pushes some spiritual aspect into the use of the oil….like aromatherapy and clearing their mind for more “centered” praying. I dribble some peppermint in my bath because it soothes the skin, it does not fuel my spirit.

  10. Before I gave my life to Jesus I, too, considered New Age. When I was invited to a YL oil party a few years ago by a dear Christian woman I knew immediately that something was wrong in Denmark. There is no doubt that however YL packages itself to attract Christians it is, at it’s core, NA & occult. It is frightening to me to see how so many in the church are being so easily deceived and I sincerely hope that everyone will WAKE UP!

    So thank you for sounding the alarm. I hope many others will hear it.

  11. A. Houk says:

    Specifically on the marketing aspect of YL and what you’ve called “new age” branding…Do you think that perhaps they’ve made the choice to market this way to appeal to their target market? In my opinion, many of the people who are interested in using essential oils are a little “new agey” and any smart business person would appeal to those senses, when possible.

  12. Janet says:

    Loved your article! When I read claims and names such as you mentioned my woo woo radar goes up. My good friend, a Christian Evangelical is trying very hard to get me to buy the Young Living oils. She applies them straight, without dilution, which I understand is NOT to be done. She has sold her whole family on them, including her Catholic mother. My friend does yoga, also, so it doesn’t surprise me that she wouldn’t see the pagan and new age references. Or if she does, she dismisses them. I discovered a non-profit Christian essential oils company in TX called By Faith. They also warn of the dangers of occult and pagan and new age companies. I have yet to try EO’s and am very wary, though God created plants and oils for our benefit. So, what I am gathering from your post is that mixtures are where the dangers lie? Buy the singles and make your own combinations? I try to avoid any and all new age, anti-Christian related products. I once bought a cream from a local company that claimed it stopped pain. I put it on my very hurting knee and instantly felt relief. I bought it and used it. It worked. Then I discovered the company does Raiki.New age. I threw it out. My soul is not worth the risk, IMO.

  13. So where do you purchase your Tea Tree oil and your Peppermint oils from ?

  14. Patti Z says:

    I’snt it based on your intent of using and/or selling the oils? I use some single blends for a variety of issues, none of which are spiritual. If I buy Young Living or Doterra, does it matter how others use them? Or what their intention was when they manufactured them? How is my eternity affected because their intention wasn’t Christian when they put together the blends and named them as they have?

    • Hi Patty, I use some oils too. I wasn’t trying to say that your eternity is affected! Please forgive me if it sounded like that! I was just trying to inform of the New Age stuff the companies are promoting. It is purely up to you to decide what you want to do with that information. God bless you ❤

      • Nora says:

        I have commented before of my disastrous outcome with essential oils and Young Living. I thank this blog for giving clarity to something that has troubled me 2 months with YL. I could not put articulate the upset until I read this last year.
        Alas, I still had to suffer the physical consequences of the unsafe practices that we were taught and encouraged to do several months later from a widespread immunity reaction. After a prolonged and costly process, I am on the mend and occasionally use only 2 single essential oils carefully.

        Thank God for using this site to shine the light and remind me to be alert to the deception of the enemy and to trust in Him alone.

        • Coppermom says:

          Hello all
          I have been a YL distributor for 4 years and it was not something I was looking for. I shared singles,blend oils which I do believe are a gift from God. But I have struggled wiith discernment when my friend warned me this could be NA. I want to get out but have a following. Could the oils I have be harming my family and what about the people I shared and opened an account because of on my personal testimonials. I have to pick up some orders this week! We diffuse lemon and pine and other single blends. Is this ok? I welcome any advice. It is our Lord and Saviour that I want to serve fully and with all,my heart and soul. I feel foolish and dont know how to confront the people i sold to.

    Do you know that God told his people to use essential oils in the bible and told them the oils to use. Using essential oils is not only a witchcraft thing.

    When I read your article, it seemed you were coming across as labeling or putting oil users in a box. Not all oil users are occult like. It is important to use discernment, like anything in life as well as use wisdom. And it’s okay to state your opinion but what was the point of your message? To label people that use oils, to criticize? To tell people it’s pagan or witch craft? I think things can be used in moderation. I understand you feel biased against certain companies for various reasons, and that’s okay too. Your entitled to your own opinion but I think there is a need for humility and kindness with your message.

    Are there any trustable Christian essential oil companies?

    I never realized how widespread the new age christianity is until reading yours and other people’s websites. I am so happy I found your blog. God delivered me from the New Age, which I have been in since I was young, and recently delivered me from New Age Christianity which I never realized I was in for past 8 or so years. God never gave up on me, even though it led me down so many dark roads that it left me at one point insane, hospitalized and physically ill. I am SO THRILLED God continues to teach me Biblical Christianity and that He allows me to be called his child. I love the God of the Bible, he is unlike any god of this world.

    Thank you so much for being bold for our Father and writing this article!! I see it is from a few years ago, but I needed to read it very much today. I have been involved with Young Living for 4 years now both using for my family and trying to build a business. I found it rather odd when I thought about it that I was SO devoted to the company, but never really took it seriously. Here recently Yahweh has really been opening my eyes to just how many New Age practices I have been apart of not even realizing it. I have been in prayer about what to do and this article really helped show me what decision needs to be made!
