A NEW YOU: SLIQUE IN 60 CHALLENGE Starting the year with a healthier, happier you!

FOUNDER’S MESSAGE Hello, my friends. This is a special time, as we

anticipate the excitement of what is to come in the new year. Young Living is growing so fast that I find myself engulfed in thoughts of the need for more farms to grow the plants to produce the oils that you are needing. It is rewarding to know that so many people are catching the vision, not only in the discovery of their own wellness and success but also in bringing our message to so many people who are looking for answers and waiting to cross the path of someone who can enlighten them with something new that will help them with their needs. The technical world has become very sophisticated in the enhancement of oils with synthetic compounds that increase the volume and sweeten the natural aroma, enabling them to be sold for a much lower price. For those of us who understand this, we must educate others about the purity of oils and why that is so important. We are in the process of closing on several thousand acres of land, where we will grow crops to produce oils that are in higher demand and increase our einkorn acreage. We have already moved onto the land and are preparing it for seeding and are going to build our own flour mill, where only einkorn will be de-husked and milled. We will not import

including the region’s amazing leaders. To celebrate and encourage members in the area, the market hosted a business-building promotion with an incentive trip to Hawaii. In September, 44 qualifying members visited Kona Sandalwood Reforestation Project in Big Island, Hawaii, where they relaxed and learned about the farm’s dedication to reforestation initiatives and its passion for Young Living. With so many developments for the market, including the region’s third Diamond qualifying in September and the second Crown Diamond in November, this region continues to help Young Living in its efforts to take essential oils to every home in the world. We can’t wait to see where the new year takes Young Living Australia!

BEYOND THE STANDARD With General Counsel and CCO Matt French When Young Living updated the Seed to Seal program to highlight the three pillars of Sourcing, Science, and Standards, we did so to share the demanding standards that go into providing you every pristine drop of essential oil you enjoy. On our recent episode of the Drop of Inspiration podcast, we spoke with General Counsel and Chief Legal and Compliance Officer Matt French about Young Living’s standards that go far beyond the standard. Under the Standards pillar, you’ll find an exhaustive compliance program. Matt explains more on the podcast, “The Standards pillar encapsulates the desire to and commitment to follow through on legal sourcing and compliant sourcing all throughout the world in everything we do.” The standards that guide our Seed to Seal program lead the industry, and we intend to keep it that way. Setting the pace for ethical and green practices has an impact that extends far beyond bringing your family the highest quality essential oils. As Matt offered, “We want to do it right because we abide by the laws and we care about what governments think. I think being that first company out there that’s doing it the right way, we set the trend. And that means in the future, the whole world will be better for it.” Our Standards pillar, like the Sourcing and Science pillars that bolster our Seed to Seal program, is a commitment to anyone who encounters our products that we’ve gone above and beyond. “Our real heartbeat is to protect the earth and to protect products that we want to get into people’s homes,” said Matt. “We know that by sourcing compliantly, a lot of the laws are set up to make sure the plants are still there in the future and that it’s done right.” Learn more about Young Living’s Standards and the rest of our Seed to Seal program by listening to the “Standards that Set Us Apart” episode at
