Life Steps Basics


Life Steps is a mobile app designed to help members of Young Living learn about the incredible products and build a thriving YL business.

It was conceived and developed by Courtney and John Critz. After many years of building their RCD business and helping others achieve success they set out to turn their resources and processes into an app that any YL member can download, use, and benefit from.




Below you’ll find an overview of the features Life Steps provides. While you can get a pretty good idea of what Life Steps can do for you by reviewing these features, the best way is to explore for yourself!


Wellness Assessment

The Wellness Assessment is a series of questions that can help you identify areas of your own wellness that could benefit from attention and recommend ways the YL oils can help.

You can access your past results and track your progress over time.

Tap here to open the Wellness Assessment directly in the app, or open the app, expand the menu by tapping the menu button in the top left corner, and then tap "Wellness Assessment". Simply follow the prompts and answer the questions to get your results! You can repeat the Wellness Assessment anytime.



Our Resource library is unlike any other you’ll find. All of our content is created by a team of experts with a deep understanding of oils, YL, wellness, and building a YL business. You will find lots of amazing articles about oils, guides and tips from YL leaders, downloadable tools for your own use and for your social media accounts, and more.
