Two top Young Living representatives who are estimated to have made millions of dollars sellingessential oils for the multi-level marketing brand have abruptly quit the company - and are now accusing it ofspreading 'demonic' propaganda andpromoting 'spiritual darkness.'
Melissa Truitt, from Oklahoma, and Madison Vining, from Texas, both resigned from the wellness brand last year - despite standing to make an annual $1.4 million and $2.8 million based on their top-seller status, respectively.
At the time, neither of them specified why they were suddenly cutting ties with the MLM, but now they've revealed that they left because of alleged 'demonic' influence, comparing Young Living to Satan.
Melissa - a devout Christian and former Diamond member of Young Living - opened up about the shocking reason she stopped selling their products in a series of videos on Instagram last week, specifically decrying a promotional book she says she got from Young Living in the mail.
'This book is honestly one of the darkest, most demonic books I've ever had in my house,' Melissa said, warning other Christians that the book could 'completely ruin you' if you 'let it into your house.'

Melissa Truitt, from Oklahoma, said this book was sent to all of the Diamond-level sellers at the company
Melissa explained that she and her husband decided to step down near the end of 2021 after seven years with the company, after they 'saw some things that didn't agree with their spirit.'
'We worked with Young Living essential oils for about seven years. We were - we still are huge fans of essential oils,' she explained. 'We know exactly how they work and what they do and what they did to our health.
'We got to basically the second to the top rank with Young Living and after getting to the that top rank of Diamond you get to see a little bit behind the curtain and a little bit more of corporate and the way things are run.
'After a little while, we started to see that this company that we had really worked with and really believed in was not what we had signed up for,' she said.
'It was something different but we couldn't really pinpoint it. We heard some things and saw some things that didn't agree with our spirit but we knew something had changed.
'We prayed really hard about it and we walked away. We resigned our account with Young Living five months ago. We resigned our checks, everything. It was a big decision for our family because it was a huge part of our income but we knew the lord was calling us out of that.'
However, despite no longer working with the brand, Melissa claimed that she received a self-help book from Young Living in the mail from them weeks ago that left her reeling.
She described the book, called My Word Made Flesh, as the 'darkest, most demonic' book she has ever seen.

Melissa - a devout Christian who sold for the brand for seven years - said she decided to step down after she 'saw things that didn't agree with her spirit'
SHe said this book, My Word Made Flesh, recently came in the mail and was the 'darkest, most demonic' book she has ever seen
The book was co-written by one of Young Living's Royal Crown Diamond members, Marcella Vonn Harting, along with motivational speaker Robert Tennyson Stevens - and it also included a forward from the Young Living's CEO and co-founder, Mary Young.
According to Melissa, it was sent to all of the Diamond-level sellers at the company.
Young Living representatives sell their products and earn a commission, and the more they sell, the higher they rank in the company.
There are 10 different ranks, with the highest three being Diamond, Crown Diamond, and Royal Crown Diamond.
According to theirwebsite, Royal Crown Diamond members make between $89,885 to $2,843,275 a year, while Diamond members earnbetween $101,939 to $1,447,262 a year.
Melissa said that My World Made Flesh told its readers to perform a 'séance' with oils, while chanting that they're the 'resurrection and life of their lineage.'
She complained that it was 'one of the darkest, most demonic books I've ever had in my house.'
The book was co-written by one of Young Living's top sellers, Marcella Vonn Harting, and it also included a forward from the Young Living's CEO and co-founder, Mary Young
'I can't wait to get rid of it but I knew that I had to share this. The things that they're saying for the people to do is basically a séance with oils.
'One of the quotes you're supposed to say while you put these oils on you, and I quote, "I am the resurrection and the life of my lineage."
'There is nothing more false than taking Jesus out of it and putting yourself in there. Putting yourself as Jesus, that's just so dark and demonic.'
Melissa warned other Christians that the book could 'completely ruin you' if you 'let it into your house.' She also urged leaders at the company to stop the book from spreading any further.
She continued: 'I don't know what the founder of Target's beliefs are, or Anthropology or any of my favorite stores. But I know if they sent me a book like this, it would be the very last second that I ever spent a dime with them.
'Young Living - none of their products will ever be in our house ever again. Leaders, you know you got this book, and now, this is in your hands.
'If you hide this from your team, you are condoning this behavior. This is going to be at your conventions. This is going to be at everything you do with Young Living. And if you do condone it, you are handing out spiritual warfare to everyone in your team.

'This is so much bigger than money, this is so much bigger than the day-to-day life. This is eternal significance that you have in your hands and you have got to rise up and stand up and run from this,' she continued
'There is no amount of money that should keep you in bondage to this company.'
Melissa then shared some pictures of various pages in the book that she felt were offensive.
One part read, 'The pure intelligence of essential oils may be the only tool that can reach into the deep recesses of our brain, cross over the chemical barriers, and open the hidden channels of our mind, allowing access to greater knowledge and discernment in reaching our highest potential to become more Christ-like, to communicate without speaking, to focus our thinking and to be able to manifest our thoughts into reality.'
Another said, 'The most Sainted of us have hidden prides, pleasures, fears, and thought forms to redeem or trade in on good (God) energy.
'We require the blocks taken out (transformed) and our good energy redeemed, unlocked and freely expressed. We have created these blocks, we can transform them.'
In a statement to Buzzfeed, Young Living said 'it did not publish and does not endorse this book in any way.'
The company said that CEO Mary Young's forward was written before 'much of the book' was finished and co-authorMarcella sent out the book to 'her own list without the company's knowledge or consent'
It said that co-author Marcella sent out the book to 'her own list without the company's knowledge or consent.'
'We support a culture of inclusion that we extend to our employees, customers, and brand partners world-wide,' the statement read.
'We appreciate and celebrate our members and their diversity of background and belief, and are dedicated to ensuring our brand partners follow our policies and procedures and code of ethics.'
Thecompany explained thatthe CEO's forward was writtenbefore 'much of the book' was finished.
'Mary Young’s choice to write a foreword stemmed from her own belief about the use of language to promote positive outcomes and her desire to support a friend,' it said.
'She wrote her foreword prior to much of the book even being written based on the authors’ intent to teach people how to use positive language to help bring about change in their lives.'
Melissa responded to their statement in another post, writing, 'The book was sent out to all Diamonds and it literally says, "Dear Diamonds." They only had my address because they have a list of Diamonds from corporate.
The brand allows influencers to sell their products and earn a commission, and the more they sell, the higher they rank in the company
'This is from corporate - published through a third party as usual, so they can claim to cure cancer (which this book also does).'
However, according to Buzzfeed, the company denied providing the authors with anyone's contact information.
Madison, meanwhile, worked with Young Living for more than eight years and had reached theRoyal Crown Diamond status before she quit in August 2021.
Madison also spoke out about the book in the wake of Melissa's posts, calling it the 'deal breaker' and 'tip of the iceberg' for her on her Instagram story, and adding that she felt it was filled with 'spiritual darkness.'
'Believers be discerning,' she wrote in a now-deleted post. 'The enemy [Satan] prowls like a lion, and he can look (and smell) really good.
'This isn’t about a book. Though that book alone would have been a deal breaker for me. This is the tip of the iceberg on this issue. I feel a lot of clarity breaking my silence for things that matter in eternity.'
DailyMail.com has reached out to Melissa, Madison, and Young Living Essential Oils for comment.
Young Living was founded in 1993 by D. Gary Young. On its website, it claims that its 'complex, pleasant, and unique' scents can trigger 'emotions and memories,which can help in your search for a more fulfilling and balanced life.'
It claims that the oils can enhance physical wellness and spiritual awareness, as well as purify your home and strengthen your skin and hair.
'To help you rediscover peace, balance, and joy, use these essential oils and blends for diffusion, soothing baths, massage, inhalation, or topical application,' its website reads.
'Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted.
'Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature's pure essence.'
