Marie Gunther, Guest and Program director for the radio broadcast, The Power Hour, is a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor. Marie signs up Power Hour website visitors and others to sell under her in Gary's Young's multi-level marketing company that uses occult healing jargon to describe their products and teaches witchcraft doctrine in conjunction with the use of their products.
Gary Young's Young Living Essential Oils company attributes spiritual properties to many of their products. Below are a few examples of spiritual claims they make for their products. The descriptions seem to indicate that their essential oils have power to do things of a spiritual nature:
Aroma Life ". . . Pulsing with life, this vibrant blend energizes your life force. It is best applied over heart energy - front and/or back."(1) (Note: "heart energy" is a witchcraft term.)
Dream Catcher "may be useful during meditation" and "enhance dreams and visualization;"(2)
Humility offers "forgiveness and obtaining a deeper spiritual awareness" and "brings balance to your heart and mind. (3) (Note the way the words "balance" and "balancing" are used. This is how the term is used in witchcraft.)
Jasmine "has been used throughout history for romance and attraction and for balancing the feminine energy of the body." (4)
Juniper "has a cleansing effect on the mind, spirit, and body." (5)
Highest Potential "is an exotic blend designed to increase your capacity to achieve your highest potential." (6)
Valor ". . . It has also been found to help energy alignment in the body." (7)
White Angelica ". . . combines oils used during ancient times to enhance the body's aura, which brings about a sense of strength and endurance . . . Many people use it as protection against negative energy." (8) (Note: An aura is a subtle energy field.)
Awaken ". . . helps bring about inner awareness and awakening. . . This blend may help you progress toward your highest potential. (9) (Note: "highest potential" is a New Age catchphrase that means to reach your highest level of consciousness or awareness. In plain English it means being "enlightened" by Lucifer.)

From the Christian Research Institute:
Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and thank you for contacting the Christian Research Institute!
Young Living Essential Oils (YLEO) is a company founded by Dr. Gary Young in 1993. Young purports in 1973 suffering a “crippling injury,” which led him to study of alternative medicine, particularly essential oils. He considers the essential oils were a “critical piece” in recovering from his injuries, which ultimately inspired him to research and acquire a significant knowledge base on how they have been used worldwide. Young produces his own essential oils and distributes them via his company.The use of essential oils is essentially a modality of alternative medicine. For instance, not only can Young’s essential oils can be useful in aromatherapy, but YLEO purports “Only by diffusing pure Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ (YLTG) essential oils can you create a proper mood, state of mind, or improve your physical well-being.” YLEO also purports its oils “can create an environment that supports deeper yoga practice,” albeit yoga at its core is a spiritual technique developed by ancient Gurus for indoctrination into Hinduism. Young’s “Raindrop Technique” incorporates among other things “reflexology,” which is a modality of alternative medicine based on the idea of balancing of energy forces common in Eastern religions.There is nothing wrong with using oils for fragrance, enhancing food, or medicinally per se; however, YLEO goes beyond the production, sales, and distribution of essential oils, but also serves also as an entryway for indoctrination into a New Age worldview.For further related study, please access the following equip.org resources:DN055 - A New Age of Science: An Inquiry into the Influence of Mysticism on Science New Age series Part TwoJAY001-1 - The Yoga Boom: A Call for Christian Discernment (Part One: Yoga in Its Original Eastern Context)JAY001-2 - The Yoga Boom: A Call for Christian Discernment (Part Two: Yoga in Its Contemporary Western Context)JAY001-3 - The Yoga Boom: A Call for Christian Discernment (Part Three: Toward a Comprehensive Christian Response)
There is no such thing as "Therapeutic Grade" Essential Oil!
WATCH HERE a demonstration and description of the ritualistic and paganistic (witchcraft) Raindrop Technique advised and promoted by Young Living, it's associates, and it's MLM salespeople.
The Raindrop Technique is highly promoted and worshiped in many Wiccan and Pagan circles.
The origin of this technique is even pagan in nature, and from a technique based in witchcraft and pantheistic worship:
"Raindrop was developed by D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils, based on techniques taught to him by a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. In Lakota Native American healing practices, healers sweep a feather upwards along the spine in imitation of the Northern Lights, which are revered for their healing energy." ~ Reference
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
