Founder’s Message YOUNG LIVING IS the world leader in essential oils, and now there is a company-wide movement to create a culture to match our products: a world-class culture focused on changing lives and making a difference throughout the world. There is a spirit of unity that crosses lines and teams and brings every Young Living member together for a cause greater than money, status, or rank advancement. In short, we are one big Young Living team of oilers and caretakers, of dream chasers and achievers. We are a unique, worldwide community of individuals who come together to give back not only to make the people of the earth better but to also make the earth better. From remote areas in northern Idaho to bustling hubs in Hong Kong, the Young Living lifestyle rolls on. That lifestyle is built upon principles of abundance for everyone. It’s about furthering a cause so much bigger than ourselves and our bank accounts. It’s about making real changes in our lives so that we can promote real changes in the lives of everyone who happens to cross our path. My dream is to have a unified Young Living team where we learn from each other, share with each other, and build each other. This is our inspired movement, and we are in it together.

Renew, Reunite at the Spring Reforestation THE ANNUAL YOUNG Living Spring Reforestation at our Highland Flats Tree Farm is here! Each year at the advent of spring, we reconnect in northern Idaho to give back to nature and to ourselves through a time of renewal based around the Seed to Seal® process. This year, April 6–May 2 is your opportunity to participate firsthand in the planting methods used to help ensure that Young Living oils are the purest available. During the Spring Reforestation, you will work shoulder to shoulder with other members to replace the blue spruce, Western red cedar, and other trees that were removed during the Winter Harvest and to promote sustainability at our beautiful Highland Flats Tree Farm. “We are proud to allow our members to see sustainability in action,” said Jay Anderton, Young Living VP of global farms and projects. “Until you experience one of these events for yourself, it is difficult to understand the effort, care, and passion that goes into the Seed to Seal process. We hope you will join us this spring for the reforestation tree planting project at the Highland Flats Tree Farm.” At the reforestation, you can look forward to: • Playing a vital role in the creation of our Idaho Blue Spruce and Balsam Fir essential oils • Participating in Young Living’s sustainability efforts by replacing previously harvested trees • Learning time-tested planting methods and reconnecting with a simpler, more natural way of life • Discovering a new appreciation for Young Living’s commitment to quality and authenticity • Making new friends and lasting memories Please visit YoungLiving.com/SpringReforestation to learn more about this event and to register.

Gary Young: A Somalian Adventure This is the third of an expected five-part series highlighting real events from Gary’s frankincense exploration in Somalia, written by Gary himself.
THE NEXT DAY, under military escort, Gary in the village market with guards and we ventured outside the compound to Boswellia frereana vendors. The president Somalia dispatched special forces as visit a local warehouse that brokered of bodyguards for Gary. and shipped frankincense and myrrh resin out of Somalia. When we arrived, they were cleaning the resin and preparing it for export. I noticed that almost everyone was chewing the resin as they worked. It was interesting to see that here in another country, the home of Boswellia frereana, what I have been telling everyone since my time in Oman about the resin and why I created Slique Gum, my frankincense chewing gum. We went to visit two private schools that were supposed to be better than the public schools in the city of Bosaso with a population of 500,000 people, and they did not even have electricity. So naturally, there were no computers, no biology labs, no sports, no music, and no chemistry. However, all the children were learning English with the hope of one day leaving this school for a better education, a job, and a better life. I asked to visit a community school and was told, “NO, we are ashamed to have you see our public schools.” The next day I went to the shipping port where Queen Hatshepsut’s royal navy landed when she was looking for an inland passage to the headwaters of the Nile River. Then 500 years later, King Abdulla continued to export frankincense to Egypt. His oldest daughter, Queen Arawelo, then became heir to the throne and continued to export frankincense and myrrh in trade with the Queen of Sheba in Cana, Yemen. Today, 3,000 years later, the No. 1 commodity for export still remains the legendary frankincense. Goats, sheep, and camels make up the second export market share. Tuesday morning Yusuf informed me, “The President has dispatched more solders for our protection, but it will still be safer if we go out under the cover of dark in the early morning around 1 or 2 a.m., so be ready.”
Young Living: The World Leader in Essential Oils and Distillation During its 20-year history, Young Living Essential Oils has proven again and again to be the world leader in essential oils. With the installation in 2014 of a state-of-the-art distillery at its Highland Flats Tree Farm in Naples, Idaho, D. Gary Young ushered in a new era in distillation for the production of essential oils and proved that obstacles are no match for his illuminated vision. THE NEW DISTILLERY is the latest innovation in distillery technology, including an advanced computer program that monitors the distillation chamber and condenser and separator temperatures and pressures, starting with the steam injection flow into the extraction chamber to the steam exit and flow temperature levels through the condenser to the separator. The first critical factor is the steam flow volume, which determines the temperature and ability to ramp the steam flow at the precise time to maintain sufficient temperature increase as the oil molecules travel up through the chamber for proper extraction without creating homogenization or reflux that will result in loss of oil, which will compromise the quality. The steam-injection rate and volume are very critical during the entire process. The second critical factor is to make sure that the condenser temperature is not too hot or too cold as it descends through 200 12-foot-long tubes to prevent fracturing of the molecules, which could change the chemistry and aroma. Third, the temperature of the separator is critical because many plants require a different separation temperature. If the temperature is wrong, many of the fine molecules are lost that are important for therapeutic application, which is unimportant to the fragrance and food flavouring industry. With Gary’s new, innovative changes, we are now capturing up to 80 percent more of the fine molecules that are lost in normal distilling practices. The computer monitors all systems and makes changes instantly when needed. Manually, the operator may be monitoring, loading, or unloading a chamber and may not be able to make adjustments immediately, which could take several minutes to correct.
The fourth step will be to install cameras inside the swan neck to be able to watch the steam as it leaves the plant material carrying the oil into the condenser. An app on Gary’s phone will allow him to monitor and control the distillation from any place in the world and will also enable him to teach new operators around the world. This new, automated, state-of-the-art oil-extracting facility is the most advanced distilling system in the world today. • For the first time, semitrucks can drive inside a heated building where the chips are unloaded and then packed into the two 21,000-litre extraction chambers. • In 2014, two more extraction chambers will be installed for the 2015 harvest. One will be another 21,000-litre chamber for conifer distillation. The fourth will be an 8,500-litre chamber for the distillation of Idaho Tansy. • The range of litres extracted from a single distillation is between 21 and 42 litres. The volume of oil is dependent on the age of the tree and the branch growth. Older trees with less branch growth and more hard wood naturally produce less oil, and different conifer trees have a difference in their production.
• The new extraction chambers use 30 percent less fuel that the older extraction chambers. The new condenser system reduces the water consumption by 20 percent, and all water in the distillation process is recycled and never leaves the holding reservoir again, thus preserving our eco system. • The truck bay is 85 feet long and 52 feet wide. It is fully insulated, with heated floors to melt snow and ice and remove the water in the chips for a better and greater distillation. • The new distillery completely eliminates Gary’s nightly drive of 125 miles in the semitruck over the treacherous, winding roads covered with snow and ice to the distillery in St. Maries. Gary is safer, the distillation process is infinitely faster, and the oil production is spectacular. A dream come true. The Highland Flats farm is an amazing place to visit. From distilling, to separating, to decanting/filtering, to bottling, the oils are transferred from stainless steel to glass containers and never touch hands before they are sealed and packaged for shipping. Distillery operators say that distilling is both an art and a science. D. Gary Young combines research and science with 25 years of experience in engineering, designing, building, and operating 9 existing distilleries and 5 partner distilleries in different countries. In 2014 he is building 1 new distillery in Egypt and 1 in Somalia. All of these distilleries that Gary Young has built throughout the world on five continents are bringing forth great discoveries in modern-day distillation, making him the only person in history to distil on such a worldwide scale. Consistency and increased control allow Young Living to further ensure the purity and quality of its world-class products. The Seed to Seal process is Young Living’s trademark. This was first developed at the farm in Ecuador. Gary then took it to a higher level with the new distillery at Highland Flats. Gradually, all of the Young Living distilleries will be modified to match the new operation. The Utah farm is now under way for the same upgrades. With the new automation and the most advanced technology available, modernising the production process will be more efficient and effective than ever. Gary’s vision is to be able to remotely monitor and control the distillation process in Young Living’s worldwide farms from his phone and global headquarters in Lehi, Utah. Young Living has again raised the bar of excellence in the essential oil industry; and with its Seed to Seal process, it is without question the world leader in essential oils.
Winter Harvest: The Numbers • 1,200 gallons of oil. Before the new distillery, this would have taken five years to produce. • 21 to 42 litres of oil per cook. • 300 people, mostly from the community, attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new distillery. • 3 special guests from France: Jean-Marie Blanc, Benoit Cassan, and Nicalos Noel joined in the fun at the harvest and the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
