Was Dr. Pappas ever an employee of Young Living Essential Oils?
The answer to this question is ABSOLUTELY NOT! Unfortunately there has been an attempt by some YL reps over the years to use his good name to promote their products. But the facts are that Dr. P did some consulting work for Young Living back in the late 90’s. He was hired by Young Living to help them get a handle on their quality control and improve their analytical techniques. But ever since then his words have been twisted and manipulated by certain people in order to promote their products, most everything that has been reported claiming to be a direct quote from Dr. P concerning these products is complete fabrication.
