Tour France With Gary & Mary Young

See where it all began by joining Gary and Mary Young this July on an unforgettable tour of southern France in celebration of the Simiane-la-Rotonde lavender farm’s 20th anniversary. Southern France, the Provence region in particular, is the birthplace of Gary’s fascination with essential oils. We will visit different working distilleries that will be harvesting and distilling and will see where Gary “cut his teeth” in the lavender fields in the mountains of Sederon with Marcel Espieu and Henri Viaud, his teachers and mentors who taught him the art and science of growing, harvesting, and distilling. We will visit Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, and old museums, where we will see some of the first distillers built 100 years ago. While in Grasse, we will experience Fragonard, the renowned perfume and collectible museum and then will stroll the colorful streets through Old Town Nice and visit its dazzling markets of flowers, seafood, and local crafts. Gary and Jean Noel, our farm manager, will take us on a journey from Grasse that follows the historical route of Napoleon, where he marched his army when they were returning Essential Edge News

from Egypt to Paris. We will travel through endless lavender fields; take in beautiful cities and villages including Nice, Marseille, and Monte Carlo; and visit the lavender plateau to see the large lavandin farm and to see and learn the difference between various hybrids and cloned lavenders grown in Provence. We will travel through the high mountain plateaus where the last farms are growing original lavender and will visit the ancient capital of Simiane, dating back 900 years. Then we’ll spend a day at our gorgeous and newly renovated Simiane-la-Rotonde lavender farm, learning and participating in unique trainings and special presentations by Gary and Jean Noel and experience the crafting of wild lavender in the beautiful foothills. As we journey from the farm, we’ll stop for lunch in beautiful Aix-enProvence and then enjoy the rest of a short drive to the famous port of Marseilles on the enticing Mediterranean Coast. Our final day will be spent with Gary, Jean Noel, and Dr. Herve Casabianca in a casual learning atmosphere of questions and answers. Take advantage of this once-in-alifetime opportunity to live Young Living history and explore one of the world’s most beautiful regions. This will be an unforgettable experience, so mark your calendars and visit www.youngliving.com frequently for more information and updates.

This year—2012—is a hallmark year for Young Living, not only for transformation but also for accomplishment. Like the Simiane-la-Rotonde lavender farm, St. Maries farm in Idaho is celebrating 20 grand years, with festivities from July 11 to August 11. The St. Maries farm is where the farming and production of Young Living oils really began and is where Gary Young built the first distillery from logs that he cut and put in place. He was the first in all of North and South America to develop a farm in Northern Idaho for the production of lavender, clary sage, melissa, thyme, and wild tansy. The farm has grown from 160 acres of land and 30 acres in crop production to 410 acres of land with 360 acres in production. Gary built the first vertical, stainless

steel, low-pressure distiller in the world at a time when mild carbon steel was all that was used in distilleries throughout the world. No one before or since has built farms and distilleries around the world to ensure or preserve quality and integrity of pure oils. Anyone can claim quality, but unless they produce it, they do not know the integrity and honesty of the distillation or the purity of the oils. During the celebration, melissa, and lavender will be harvested, and all those who are there will be able to participate in the Seed to Seal™ process. There will be classes in the evening, white-water rafting, crafts and games, camping under the pine trees, visiting the giant cedar forest, and best of all, sitting around the campfire eating great food and harmonizing in song. Stories of long ago come to life with the powerful energy and spirit of the immense pine trees and the oil they produce. Be part of this wonderful time of great reflection, gratitude, and camaraderie that can only be realized at this Young Living event. Mark your calendars and visit www.youngliving.com frequently for more information and updates.

DGYF Fundraising Event A Grand Success More than $16,000 raised from the auction The D. Gary Young Foundation recently hosted the very successful Awaken to Healthy Living event in March, the first fundraising event held by the foundation not in conjunction with the Young Living convention. The event began on Friday, March 30, when more than 130 people experienced a wonderful dinner with Gary and Mary that included a live auction of items from all over the world. “I would like to thank everyone who attended the auction or bid on the auction items. Without your willingness to participate, we would not have been able to raise over $16,000,” said Don Clair, director of the foundation. On Saturday, March 31, the event continued with an educational extravaganza of exceptional speakers including D. Gary Young, Marcella Vonn Harting, Dr. HK Lin, and Dr. Christi Bonds-Garrett. With nearly 300 people in attendance, the day was filled with new informa-

tion about the Young Living Academy in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and the Slique™ program. In addition, 21 new supporters signed up to participate in the Sponsor a Child program, donating their resources to benefit 71 children who are attending the Young Living Academy. Marcella Vonn Harting shared updated and pertinent information on the world of social media and how to use it to build a Young Living business; Dr. Lin provided information on his frankincense and cancer research; and Dr. Christi Bonds-Garrett shared information on the healing properties of vibrational frequencies. We invite everyone to attend the June 29 D. Gary Young Foundation event that will be held in conjunction with the Young Living International Grand Convention and help support the very worthwhile projects sponsored by the foundation.

Helpful Hints To Reduce Product Returns In nearly every case, returned product cannot be resold and must be disposed of by Young Living. This is both costly and wasteful and can lead to higher prices to our customers. Please abide by the following recommendations to minimize the necessity of returning products: • Be aware of your autoship date and make sure any changes to your monthly order are made prior to that date. • Before you place an order for a product, read that product’s description, usage guidelines, and ingredient list (if applicable) thoroughly. • Before ordering an unfamiliar product, talk to a member of your organization who may have experience with that product.

Narrated by Young Living’s director of training and education, Doug Corrigan, and senior research writer, Karen Boren, the presentation addresses misconceptions that have been raised recently about the purity, potency, and composition of Young Living’s frankincense essential oils. Based on the latest findings on the therapeutic activity, phytochemical profile, and historic reputation of

Young Living’s frankincense oils, the presentation refutes claims brought against Young Living by a company that markets aromatherapy products.

THE

See where it all began by joining Gary and Mary Young this July on an unforgettable tour of southern France in celebration of the Simiane-la-Rotonde lavender farm’s 20th anniversary. Southern France, the Provence region in particular, is the birthplace of Gary’s fascination with essential oils. We will visit different working distilleries that will be harvesting and distilling and will see where Gary “cut his teeth” in the lavender fields in the mountains of Sederon with Marcel Espieu and Henri Viaud, his teachers and mentors who taught him the art and science of growing, harvesting, and distilling. We will visit Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, and old museums, where we will see some of the first distillers built 100 years ago. While in Grasse, we will experience Fragonard, the renowned perfume and collectible museum and then will stroll the colorful streets through Old Town Nice and visit its dazzling markets of flowers, seafood, and local crafts. Gary and Jean Noel, our farm manager, will take us on a journey from Grasse that follows the historical route of Napoleon, where he marched his army when they were returning Essential Edge News

from Egypt to Paris. We will travel through endless lavender fields; take in beautiful cities and villages including Nice, Marseille, and Monte Carlo; and visit the lavender plateau to see the large lavandin farm and to see and learn the difference between various hybrids and cloned lavenders grown in Provence. We will travel through the high mountain plateaus where the last farms are growing original lavender and will visit the ancient capital of Simiane, dating back 900 years. Then we’ll spend a day at our gorgeous and newly renovated Simiane-la-Rotonde lavender farm, learning and participating in unique trainings and special presentations by Gary and Jean Noel and experience the crafting of wild lavender in the beautiful foothills. As we journey from the farm, we’ll stop for lunch in beautiful Aix-enProvence and then enjoy the rest of a short drive to the famous port of Marseilles on the enticing Mediterranean Coast. Our final day will be spent with Gary, Jean Noel, and Dr. Herve Casabianca in a casual learning atmosphere of questions and answers. Take advantage of this once-in-alifetime opportunity to live Young Living history and explore one of the world’s most beautiful regions. This will be an unforgettable experience, so mark your calendars and visit www.youngliving.com frequently for more information and updates.

This year—2012—is a hallmark year for Young Living, not only for transformation but also for accomplishment. Like the Simiane-la-Rotonde lavender farm, St. Maries farm in Idaho is celebrating 20 grand years, with festivities from July 11 to August 11. The St. Maries farm is where the farming and production of Young Living oils really began and is where Gary Young built the first distillery from logs that he cut and put in place. He was the first in all of North and South America to develop a farm in Northern Idaho for the production of lavender, clary sage, melissa, thyme, and wild tansy. The farm has grown from 160 acres of land and 30 acres in crop production to 410 acres of land with 360 acres in production. Gary built the first vertical, stainless

steel, low-pressure distiller in the world at a time when mild carbon steel was all that was used in distilleries throughout the world. No one before or since has built farms and distilleries around the world to ensure or preserve quality and integrity of pure oils. Anyone can claim quality, but unless they produce it, they do not know the integrity and honesty of the distillation or the purity of the oils. During the celebration, melissa, and lavender will be harvested, and all those who are there will be able to participate in the Seed to Seal™ process. There will be classes in the evening, white-water rafting, crafts and games, camping under the pine trees, visiting the giant cedar forest, and best of all, sitting around the campfire eating great food and harmonizing in song. Stories of long ago come to life with the powerful energy and spirit of the immense pine trees and the oil they produce. Be part of this wonderful time of great reflection, gratitude, and camaraderie that can only be realized at this Young Living event. Mark your calendars and visit www.youngliving.com frequently for more information and updates.

DGYF Fundraising Event A Grand Success More than $16,000 raised from the auction The D. Gary Young Foundation recently hosted the very successful Awaken to Healthy Living event in March, the first fundraising event held by the foundation not in conjunction with the Young Living convention. The event began on Friday, March 30, when more than 130 people experienced a wonderful dinner with Gary and Mary that included a live auction of items from all over the world. “I would like to thank everyone who attended the auction or bid on the auction items. Without your willingness to participate, we would not have been able to raise over $16,000,” said Don Clair, director of the foundation. On Saturday, March 31, the event continued with an educational extravaganza of exceptional speakers including D. Gary Young, Marcella Vonn Harting, Dr. HK Lin, and Dr. Christi Bonds-Garrett. With nearly 300 people in attendance, the day was filled with new informa-

tion about the Young Living Academy in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and the Slique™ program. In addition, 21 new supporters signed up to participate in the Sponsor a Child program, donating their resources to benefit 71 children who are attending the Young Living Academy. Marcella Vonn Harting shared updated and pertinent information on the world of social media and how to use it to build a Young Living business; Dr. Lin provided information on his frankincense and cancer research; and Dr. Christi Bonds-Garrett shared information on the healing properties of vibrational frequencies. We invite everyone to attend the June 29 D. Gary Young Foundation event that will be held in conjunction with the Young Living International Grand Convention and help support the very worthwhile projects sponsored by the foundation.

What’s New Farms

Renewal In Abundance At This Year’s Spring Planting In Idaho

Simiane-la-Rotonde, France

The new lavender seeds that were transferred from Mona to Simianela-Rotonde are now growing in the farm’s greenhouse. The lavender seeds will be ready to plant during the first part of May. Preparations for the farm’s 20-year anniversary continue; the event is scheduled for July 4–7.

Guayaquil, Ecuador

Mona, Utah

Field preparations for peppermint are underway at the Whispering Springs farm, and more than 60 acres will be planted there in April and May. In addition to peppermint, 30 acres of German chamomile are ready for planting. The lavender fields are ready for the season, including the new 40-acre expansion. Also at the farm, 150 acres have been fenced off for elk and buffalo to graze and roam. Both the elk and buffalo herds have doubled in size.

St. Maries, Idaho

During the 2012 reforestation project, 7,500 Western red cedar trees were planted at the St. Maries farm.

Naples, Idaho

More than 50,000 blue spruce, balsam fir, and Douglas fir seedlings were planted in April at the Highland Flats tree farm during the 2012 spring planting. Included in the planting were the newly purchased 74 acres directly east of the existing tree farm.

Peru

With Peru’s grand opening quickly approaching in June, we are focused on completing the new distillery by September.

Many people have asked that we bring back the children’s bubblegum toothpaste. However, it has not gone away. Because it tasted more like strawberries than bubblegum, we deleted the word “bubblegum” and named it KidScents® Toothpaste. To order, see Item No. 3687. Essential Edge News

From front: Australian distributor Jennifer Cox, farm employee Emma Brewer, and U.S. distributor Susan Papinchak enthusiastically plant blue spruce at the Highland Flats tree farm during the first week of the 2012 spring planting.

Enthusiasm reigned supreme during Young Living’s 2012 spring planting, as optimism spread like wildflowers on the beautiful northern Idaho hillside. Held throughout April, the spring planting brought together distributors from far and wide to renew the soul and to plant more than 60,000 trees at the Highland Flats and St. Maries farms. “Being here for the spring planting has made me really appreciate the whole Seed to Seal® process,” said Australian distributor Jennifer Cox, who spent three weeks at this year’s planting. “It most definitely has been worth it to come over from Australia. I feel extremely grateful to be here.” Much of the excitement that swelled throughout the experience came from the 74 new acres that Young Living recently purchased directly east of the existing Highland Flats tree farm. Having acquired the land just days before the spring planting, Young Living was able to provide its distributors with a true beginning point, an experience of clearing the fields, laying out grid systems, and digging holes—all before a single tree could be planted. “It is a lot of work,” said Susan Papinchack, a distributor from New Jersey, “but it is a great feeling to know I am part of it all. My appreciation for being here, for Young Living, for the

oils, and for the people involved has really been enhanced. Seeing the energy of the company is a really great feeling.” During the first and second weeks of April, more than 20,000 blue spruce seedlings were planted on the new land. In addition to those seedlings, more than 27,000 balsam fir and 7,600 Douglas fir were planted at Highland Flats. An estimated 7,500 Western red cedar seedlings were also planted at the St. Maries farm. Cindy Gahl, a distributor from New Mexico, had been waiting for the spring planting since last year’s event, when she was encouraged by Gary Young to write her name on a wood stake and place it into the ground at the end of the row of trees she had planted. She was thrilled to see the stake still in the ground one year later. “It means so much to me to be able to plant these trees,” said Cindy. “I so hope to be around in 10 years to appreciate the oils that will be distilled from the trees. “I appreciate Young Living so much because the employees actually take the time to let you see the process of how they get the tree into the little bottle,”

The monsoon season is finally over in Ecuador, and the reservoirs on the Young Living farm are filled, providing the farm with all the water it will need through the summer. As a result, dorado azul, red geranium, and lemongrass are all coming back quickly. The ylang ylang crop has doubled in size, and the rice bed is approaching full growth and is ready to harvest. The NovaVita Clinic & Spa is complete and in operation, and 11 Ecuadorian oils are now being bottled on site.

Cindy added. “I think it’s just wonderful that Young Living’s willing to do that for us.”
