NEW S OF T H E WORL D L EA DER IN ESS ENTIAL OI L S @yo u n g l i vi n g

A MESSAGE FROM MARY Hello, Everyone, Are we all keeping up with our 2020 rush? At least it feels like a rush to me. My travel schedule is getting full, so I’m dedicated to our products to help keep me going: Slique® Shake, AminoWise™, Super B™, Essentialzymes-4™, AgilEase™, Mineral Essence™ in cold NingXia Red®, ComforTone®, MultiGreens® (a must), PD 80/20™, NingXia Red® singles, NingXia Nitro®, and Wolfberry Crisp™ Bars. Josef goes into withdrawal if he doesn’t have his favorite bar. Oh, I almost forgot, we’re all in love with KidScents® MightyPro™. I actually think as many adults go for it as the children. Remember AlkaLime™ because of all that airplane and restaurant food. What would we do without our products? I wouldn’t dare leave home without Frankincense, Helichrysum, Peppermint, Lavender, Melrose, DiGize®, Cool Azul®, Brain Power™, Valor® . . . oh, my goodness, I’ll have them all listed before I get through. You all know what you like and what’s important to you. Just don’t forget that “little” case. On a different note, I received an email with what seemed like a strange question to me. This member said that there were some members who were a few levels down in his organization who were not getting any help from their direct upline. He wanted to know if it would be all right to contact them and see how he could help. For me, that is a no-brainer. You have a right to contact and perhaps even a responsibility to help someone in your organization. Maybe this person has never met their upline or doesn’t know who to contact or even what to ask. You’ll never know if you don’t take the first step. However, be careful about sending a text or an email to someone you don’t know. It is so impersonal and most people, like me, won’t respond. Somehow, the human voice lights the fire, or at least should get a response. No one owns anyone, and the sponsor does not have possession of that person to dictate who can and cannot be contacted. If we consider ourselves to be part of the Young Living family, then I would say that family members should be able to contact and help each other. Here is some verbiage: “How can I help? Is there anything I can do for you? We haven’t met before, but I see that you are someone building in our organization. I’d like to get to know you.” As the leader, you should get to know the members “in between” and see what you can do to motivate them. It doesn’t always work, but sometimes people simply want to be recognized and valued. It’s amazing what can happen when you do that. Let’s teach our members to be leaders with how they make others feel. Let’s be who we say we are: the world leader in essential oils, and Gary would say, “That doesn’t mean just being oil users.” Being a good friend or business example is a great way to start. Let’s make this our best year yet! With love and appreciation,

YOUNG LIVING GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS WINS SIX PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS New headquarters claims construction and green awards in 2019

In the past year, Young Living Essential Oils has won six sustainability and construction awards. Wellness and excellence are evident even in our company’s buildings, and our level of dedication encourages others to follow suit. Help us celebrate these accomplishments and get greener yourself by learning from Young Living’s sustainability journey! The complex curvilinear shape, groundbreaking concrete construction, and employee-focused green design of Young Living’s new Global Headquarters in Lehi, Utah, garnered four awards: • The 2019 Excellence in Concrete Construction Award from the Intermountain Chapter of the American Concrete Institute for outstanding concrete site element and pavement design • The 2019 Excellence in Masonry Design Award from the Utah Masonry Council for innovative use of next-generation masonry materials • The Utah chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) 2019 Engineering Excellence Award for the mechanical engineering design of the project • The 2019 Most Outstanding Project of the Year, Commercial/Office over $10 million, by Utah Construction & Design magazine for the most spectacular and distinctive commercial/office building project Our new Global Headquarters also took home: • Utah Business magazine’s Green Business Award • The Recycling Coalition of Utah’s Business Recycler of the Year Award These awards also coincide with major improvements made to the waste stream at our largest distribution center in Spanish Fork, Utah. Deven Patten, Young Living’s senior manager of sustainability, led the waste stream reduction project and noted that there were challenges along the way,

including finding a starting point and making certain cultural shifts. For instance, getting employees to sort their waste into recycling bins meant educating them about the reasons behind the change. Following trainings about how many little actions can add up to one big difference, the Distribution Center team did just that. By managing our waste streams more effectively and thoughtfully, Young Living eliminated 22 tons of waste per month that would have otherwise gone to a landfill. Our Utah Distribution Center is now 99 percent landfill free! Inspired to take a cue from our Distribution Center team and reduce waste at your house? Coming up against apathy or not knowing where to start? Do what Young Living did. Deven started by establishing waste baselines at the beginning of the year and working to continuously reduce that amount. Find out how much trash your household produces each week. How much of that trash could be recycled? How much of your household’s waste is unnecessary? By creating a complete picture, you’ll know what little improvements to make to add up to a big difference! If you want to become greener and adopt more sustainability practices, Deven advises patience and persistence. “One of our biggest takeaways from this year,” he said, “and the thing I’d like everyone to know, is that you do not need to be perfect at things like recycling. You just need to try. As we have been working to reduce our own waste, we’ve come to understand that there is no way we could immediately do everything just right, and we have communicated that to anyone who hears it. The real impact will be seen when we don’t have a small handful of people being perfect stewards but when we have millions doing it imperfectly.” Want to know more about Young Living’s green efforts and our zero-waste 5×5 Pledge?

New meeting space for the Khairenitar Women’s Cooperative Gender equality is a critical component to the way societies and economies function around the world. This is why each year the Global Gender Gap Report examines 149 countries and the way they are progressing toward gender parity in four areas: economic opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival, and political empowerment. Of these countries, in 2018 Nepal ranked 105 overall in economic opportunity and 123 in educational attainment. These numbers reflect the results of deeply engrained patriarchal laws and customs, but one group in rural Nepal is determined to overcome the barriers of patriarchy and close the gender gap. The Khairenitar Women’s Cooperative is a group of 2,300 women from the Tanahun region of Nepal who work together to create economic opportunity through microfinancing loans and vocational training.

Women in rural Nepal now have a safe place to gather and grow. In an area where women have little to no access to financial institutions or loans to scale their businesses and support their families, this cooperative brings dreams to life and empowers women to harness their full potential. The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation has been hard at work for the past year building a center where these women can gather to share their successes and hardships and work together to create long-term change in their communities. On October 24, nine Young Living members attending the 2019 service trip to Nepal had the special opportunity to witness the grand opening of the new Khairenitar

Continued from page 1 Women’s Cooperative Center. The women in attendance shared stories of the successes they’ve achieved by being a part of the cooperative and expressed excitement over giving other women opportunities as well. Eric Eames, director of Marketing and Operations for the Foundation, explained, “During the opening ceremony, I realized that while empowerment means different things to different people, in this instance it means allowing those who are on the outside of the decisionmaking process into it.” One woman has been able to grow her agriculture business from 5 chickens to over 300. Another has been able to send her grandchildren to school. A family was reunited, as the father no longer needs to work full time in Malaysia due to his wife’s financial stability. These success stories are a testament to the fact that when women are involved and empowered, they can and will positively influence their families, communities, and nations. We are so excited to watch the cooperative flourish as more women are empowered by its efforts. To stay up to date on stories of success from the co-op, make sure to follow the Young Living Foundation on social media and check out our blog at YoungLivingFoundation.org/blog.

Meet Jordan and Doug Schrandt

Royal Crown Diamond Jordan Schrandt says Young Living changed her life. Because of that transformation, she says that she and her husband, Doug, will never stop sharing the message of empowering individuals with natural tools to care for health, home, and family. Jordan and Doug power through life, running their YL business while also raising their eight children, publishing a natural living magazine, and homesteading. With all these important and time-consuming passions, this husband-and-wife power duo has found that it’s crucial to rely on Essential Rewards (ER). Jordan says it’s the singular reason she’s gone chemical-free in their home. “It’s imperative for making a real change in the products you use. It forces you to think about what products you can swap out. It gives you freedom by shopping online and having the products delivered to your home. Plus, it rewards you with free products you would have bought anyway.”

For those getting started with Young Living, Jordan points to joining ER as a crucial early step in embracing the YL lifestyle. Jordan says teaching classes has made a big difference in their efforts to share Young Living, as does believing in the power of everyone to reach their full potential. “The true magic is seeing people walk into their own voice,” she says. “It’s so fun to have a front-row seat to cheer them on to greatness.” For Jordan, cheering others to greatness means connecting with a few people on a deeper level versus connecting with many people on a less-personal level. The people she’s connected with most deeply are the ones she feels have become the most passionate business builders. Building greatness also means drilling through challenges to remember who you truly are. It means speaking affirmations and truth. She reads a mini-book called God’s Creative Power or her Bible when she needs to refocus. “The key,” she says, “even if you are not a person of faith, is to find something to help you reconnect with your identity. Knowing your true identity is crucial to building a successful business.” Those looking to emulate Jordan and Doug’s connection-focused businessbuilding approach may find it useful to ask: What’s my true identity? Do I accept all of it? Answering these questions today can help lay the groundwork of a successful business tomorrow.

DIRECTIONS Makes about 8 small crepes Make the sauce: 1. Combine berries and syrup (and optional Lemon Vitality if using) in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until berries start to soften (about 3 minutes). In a small bowl, whisk together arrowroot powder and lemon juice until well combined. Add to saucepan and stir to combine. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool until needed. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. Make the crepes: 1. In a blender, combine eggs, milk, water, pancake mix, salt, oil, and maple syrup; blend on high until smooth. Set aside and let batter rest for at least 20 minutes before using (batter should be loose and have the consistency of heavy cream). Stir batter thoroughly again before cooking. 2. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Brush with a light coating of melted coconut oil.


For the crepes: 4 large eggs ½ cup coconut milk ½ cup filtered water ¼ cup Gary’s True Grit® Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix Pinch of fine sea salt 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted), plus more for pan 1 tablespoon maple syrup 3. Quickly pour about 3-4 tablespoons of batter into the pan while swirling to coat bottom evenly. Cook until the edges are set and begin to lift from pan (about 1-2 minutes). Using a spatula, run around the edges of the crepe to loosen it, then check the underside to see if it looks set and is beginning to color. Use the spatula to lift up the edges, then carefully grab the outer edge with your fingers and quickly flip the crepe in the pan. Continue to cook on the other side for another minute or until set. 4. Slide crepe onto a plate and repeat with remaining batter, brushing the pan with more oil as needed and stacking the crepes as you go. 5. Serve crepes with berry sauce.
