Summertime has a way of reinvigorating me
and getting me ready for the rest of the year. The farms are very busy with the crops in the fields, the harvests and distilling, more time with my family, and the opportunities to be outside and reconnect with nature. Lavender Days in Mona brought thousands of people to the farm to experience this beautiful harvest. To be a part of the farm operation and see Mother Nature give up her precious oils, motivates me to share this abundance with the world. The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation is part of who I am, and I care deeply about our many activities worldwide. Nothing is more rewarding than helping others in need. I am thrilled with the work in Uganda by members and staff who spent July there helping Sole Hope, which just opened a new center. Nepal, Ecuador, and other countries have also been so supported by thousands of our members. It’s easy to give to the Foundation by rounding up your orders or hosting a fundraiser using our new fundraiser aids explained on the Foundation website. Take advantage of the tools available through Young Living and many of our outside sources and work with your people to set specific goals to teach, educate, and help create excitement, growth, and even greater success within your organizations.

MEDITERRANEAN ZUCCHINI NOODLES
SEEDMineral TO SEAL SPOTLIGHT Sunscreen Lotion: Synthetic-free sun security
For the dressing
For the noodles
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4–5 medium-sized zucchini
1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
8 oz. jar of quartered canned artichoke hearts, drained
1 garlic clove, finely minced or grated ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste 2 drops Lemon Vitality™ 1 drop Oregano Vitality Pinch of red pepper flakes
¼ cup sundried tomatoes (either oil packed or dried and rehydrated in warm water), chopped ¼ cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped ¼ cup fresh chopped basil 1 tablespoon salt-packed capers, rinsed, patted dry and roughly chopped ¼ cup lightly toasted pine nuts, chopped
INSTRUCTIONS • In a large bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients and set aside. • Cut tips off the zucchini and use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to cut into noodles. • Place noodles in the large bowl with the dressing along with the artichoke hearts, chopped sundried tomatoes, Kalamata olives, basil, and capers.
It’s easier to remember sunscreen in the summer. The glaring heat is a quick reminder that your skin needs a shield, but protection from UVA and UVB rays is important no matter the time of year. With our members in mind, we created an over-the-counter sun solution using naturally derived plant- and mineral-based ingredients. With the physical UV blocker non-nano zinc oxide, alongside skin-loving essential oils, our sunscreen gives you confidence without using harsh chemicals. As we formulated this product, it was important for us to create a sunscreen using non-nano zinc oxide. There’s a growing trend to include nanomaterials in health and beauty products. However, given their high level of reactivity and the fact that nanoparticles are so small that they can get into skin pores, pass through cell membranes, and enter the bloodstream where they might have unknown effects—even when those nanoparticles come from natural materials—we wanted to provide our members with a product they don’t have to worry about. Unlike some zinc oxide formulas, Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion is lightweight and smooth, and it doesn’t leave the familiar white residue. Other hypoallergenic ingredients include buriti fruit oil, ucuuba nut butter, and Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, and Frankincense essential oils—so you know your skin is in for a treat! Our new Mineral Sunscreen Lotion also provides broad-spectrum SPF 10 protection for up to 80 minutes and is sweat- and waterresistant, so you can play plenty before you have to reapply. So whether you’re surfing, hiking, gardening, skiing, or snowshoeing, you can keep your skin protected from the sun’s rays. Find out more about nanoparticles and why we stayed away from them by reading our January 2017 Essential Edge article at bit.ly/2tqkZm8.
