Yes, We Source Some Oils! Take a Deep Breath, It’s Okay, and Here’s Why

Y

oung Living is the world leader in essential oils. No other essential oil company in the world can lay claim to owning six farms on four continents, each farm harvesting its own crops and distilling its own oils. Knowing the origin of each bottle of Young Living essential oil is one of the key differentiators between Young Living and other essential oil marketers. Because we produce many oils firsthand, every detail is known about each plant involved in the Seed to Seal® process. From the water source and soil used at planting to ensuring the purity of the oil at sealing, Young Living guarantees its product at each step. Because of global demand for Young Living oils and because of logistics, we must procure many of our oils from trusted, renowned essential oil vendors throughout the world. Turning to vendors to fulfill the Young Living vision is necessary and critical—and this relationship is carried out

with much thought and care. We conduct thorough research, visit farms and distilleries of our vendors, and test every batch of oil before any contracts are signed and before any bottle is released to distributors. “Partnerships with our distillers are as important to Young Living as the partnership we share with our distributors,” explained MaryLou Jacobson, director of purchasing at Young Living. “We buy essential oils only from the most qualified vendors. We receive many inquiries from distilleries wanting Young Living to buy their oils, and if we are looking for a new partner for a specific oil, we will test their samples. However, for us to even consider new vendors, they must meet our indus-

try-leading quality specifications.” The testing specifications set by Young Living are part of a robust system used to guarantee that each batch of oil meets our stringent standards. This testing includes gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), specific gravity, organoleptic, and optical rotation, each giving a molecular insight into the component properties of each oil. From this testing, Young Living has built personal, trusted, long-lasting relationships with vendors in Madagascar, Kenya, Egypt, Spain, Canada, Peru, Turkey, Corsica, Brazil, Bosnia, Morocco, and France, to name just a few. In every case, MaryLou, Gary Young, and Marc Schreuder have toured the distilleries and seen their harvesting and distilling practices, personally witnessing that their processes qualify for partnership with Young Living. Occasionally competing companies accuse Young Living of providing adulterated oils. Most recently another aromatherapy marketer singled out Young Living’s wintergreen oil as being a “chemical soup.” In an open rebuttal, and proving that every Young Living oil is always thoroughly tested, Young Living sent the wintergreen oil to the University of Utah for testing, where each sample was comprehensively scrutinized to make certain all components were natural. Young Living’s wintergreen oil was, in fact, pure and unadulterated. “We are the watchmen of the highest standard of quality in the world,” said MaryLou. “Young Living’s standards and tests are gauged to produce the purest, most therapeutic oils known to man.”

Celebrate the France Farm’s 20th Anniversary With the Youngs

It is time to celebrate! We are commemorating the 20th anniversary of Young Living’s lavender farm in Simiane-la-Rotonde, France, and you are invited! Join Gary and Mary Young July 4–7 as they retrace Gary’s initial discoveries into the world of essential oils and celebrate this enormous milestone in Young Living history. This one-of-a-kind event will take you to the stunning region of Provence, making

stops in Marseilles, Nice, Aix en Provence, and Simiane-la-Rotonde. This region, known for its fragrant, high-quality lavender, is where Gary learned the art of distillation and where his passion for building Young Living began. You will see, feel, and experience firsthand what Gary did as he worked, researched, and learned from local experts. You will participate in special trainings with Gary and France farm manager Jean-Noel Landel, who has partnered with Young Living since its inception, at the gorgeous and newly renovated lavender farm. Young Living’s history will become a vital part of your own life’s story as Gary instructs you in the harvest and distillation processes at the company’s birthplace! You will visit Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, and old museums, where you will see some of the first distillers built 100 years ago. While in Grasse, you will experience Fragonard, the renowned perfume and collectible museum. From Grasse,

you will follow the historical route of Napoleon, where he marched his army when they were returning from Egypt to Paris, to the quaint villages of Nice. Once in Nice, you will stroll the colorful streets through Old Town Nice and visit its dazzling markets of flowers, seafood, and local crafts. After spending a wonderful day in Nice, you will head to Marseille, France’s oldest city. Here you will stay in the heart of Marseille’s breathtaking Vieux Port at the chic and luxurious Radisson Blu Hotel and enjoy a closing reception with Gary and Mary in celebration of the Simiane-laRotonde anniversary. The 20-year celebration is an occasion for all of us to mark this monumental achievement and to celebrate Young Living’s transformation into the world leader in essential oils. Learn more about this special event at youngliving.com/en_US/news/farmAnniversary/index.html.

What’s New Farms Simiane-la-Rotonde, France

Preparations continue for the France farm’s 20th anniversary celebration. Part of the necessary work that needed to be completed was planting 10 new acres of lavender, which workers accomplished in mid-May. The lavender starts were exported from the Whispering Springs farm in Mona, Utah.

Guayaquil, Ecuador

The Young Living farm in Ecuador has come out of the monsoon season and has entered the dry season. As a result, the crops are all flourishing and the dorado azul harvest is underway.

Mona, Utah

Projects are ongoing at the Whispering Springs farm. Most recently, farm workers planted 60 acres of peppermint and completed the 40-acre lavender expansion. The 40 new acres of lavender increases the crop’s total to 220 acres. While planting projects continue throughout the summer, workers are also focusing on getting the farm ready for the exciting and unforgettable Family Farm Day Celebration at this year’s convention.

St. Maries, Idaho

Workers at the St. Maries farm recently planted 7,200 Western red cedar and Douglas fir trees. In addition to these plantings, the melissa crop has been expanded by 40 acres, and lavender has increased by 10 acres, which brings each crop to 80 acres.

Naples, Idaho

During the spring planting and through continued efforts since the event, a total of 51,250 blue spruce and balsam fir trees were planted at the Highland Flats tree farm.

Event Notice In addition to the 20th anniversary of

the Young Living farm in France, the St. Maries farm in Idaho is also celebrating its 20th year, with festivities beginning July 11 and culminating with the Silver Retreat, August 1–4. The St. Maries farm is where the farming and production of Young Living oils really began. Come and be part of Young Living history while personally harvesting melissa and lavender and experiencing the wonderful Seed to Seal® process. Join us for this enlightening time of reflection and gratitude that can only be realized at this Young Living event. Mark your calendars and visit youngliving.com for updates.

Message from the General Manager As I have indicated in previous articles, I love the outdoors. I love the smell of trees, the feel of rain, and the sound of wind. Whenever I have an opportunity to travel back to the United States, I still like to go fly fishing in some of my favourite rivers. When I first moved to Australia in 2006 a couple of gentlemen in my neighbourhood invited me to hike to the top of Mount Barney with them. The hike was a beautiful, all-day climb up the fifth highest mountain in Queensland. However, not being used to the climate, I did not bring enough water with me and soon became very dehydrated. Despite the fact that I have hiked up many difficult terrains in the past, by the time I was three quarters of the way to the summit, I was spent. Being fairly new to Young Living at the time, I was unaware of the amazing benefits of NingXia Red and had not been drinking it every day. However, I was fortunate enough to have several sachets in my pack. After drinking the first sachet, I felt an immediate surge of energy. A couple more sachets and I was able to complete the climb with no difficulties whatsoever. In fact, I still had so much energy after completing the climb that the most difficult part of the whole trip was sitting in the car on the ride home! Curious to know why it was so effective, I did a little personal research on NingXia Red. It turns out that NingXia Red is high in potassium and other mineral electrolytes. It is actually better than sports drinks for rehydration as it contains much less sugar or sodium chloride! It also has an extremely low glycaemic index, which is why I did not feel the sugar “crash” while on the mountain, and had plenty of energy throughout the day. We have had the good fortune of hearing from Dr. Sigrid Grobys recently regarding NingXia Red and other Young Living products. I just wanted to add my own testimonial to the information that she provided. I strongly recommend NingXia Red for athletes and others who need to keep hydrated, and keep their energy up. However, I also recommend it for those of us who aren’t athletes, but who want to improve our health and live life with energy and vigour. Personally, I don’t care if I live to be one hundred, as long as I live the years I have been given with wellness and enthusiasm! I hope each and every one of you take the opportunity to use NingXia Red. Use it, enjoy the benefits, and share the product with others. What a great way to help those who can use some wellness and energy in their lives! I look forward to seeing many of you at convention this month!!

Will Halterman General Manager Young Living South East Asia

Members arrive at Suntec as early as 8am

Sigrid Grobys, N.D. talking about Young Living supplements

A Recap of the Healthy Living Workshop It was a Saturday morning well-spent as Young Living members flocked to the Suntec Convention Centre on the 26th of May for the first run of the Healthy Living Workshop. Guest resource speaker, Dr. Sigrid Grobys shared a lot of useful information on diet and lifestyle, which are the basic building blocks of good health. One of the important takeaways from the workshop is the 10 Commandments of Healthy Eating. Allow us to share with you... Away with white, embrace brown. Most of the starches we eat are “white” because they are processed. Unprocessed grains are actually brown and contain many more trace minerals, vitamins and fiber than their white counterparts so get rid of white rice, white noodles and white bread. Go with their brown counterparts! Kick the addictions. Get rid of addiction to refined sugar and caffeine. Replace the former with forms of sugar which are less processed like honey, agave or stevia. Discover natural sugars. Replace white sugar with brown sugar or even with other forms of less processed sugars like honey, agave syrup and yacon syrup. You can also explore apple sauce or dried fruits. Healthy Omegas. Fats coming from either coldwater fish, flaxseeds, chia seeds, or various types of nuts are healthy and are needed by your body. Young Living’s Omega Blue is a fish oil supplement that helps you get all of your omega-goodness in just three capsules a day. Antioxidants galore. Antioxidants are key to good cardiovascular health, brain function and graceful aging. There is no doubt that antioxidant compounds are most concentrated in fruits and vegetables. Young Living’s Longevity softgels concentrate some of the most potent antioxidant essential oils in a capsule to keep old

age at bay. NingXia Red brings berries & pomegranates – some of the fruits with the highest antioxidant content – together in one tasty liquid to drink every day. Protein up! Snacks usually consist of sugary or starchy foods that give us “sugar highs” and “sugar crashes” throughout the day. Add a protein to your main meals and snacks and you will discover increased energy, less cravings and a stable mood. Wolfberry Crisp Bars contains 16 grams of high-quality protein and is low in sugar – a perfect healthy snack indeed! Listen to your appetite. When trying to lose weight, many will choose a very low-calorie diet. When you are starving a few hours later, though, you reach for unhealthy snacks like cookies or chips, cancelling out any good effects of your discipline at lunch. Choose the right foods to eat, but let your body decide the quantity. Choose white meats. Red meat has some benefits like iron, vitamin B12 and zinc but it is also rich in saturated fats. Choose white meats instead such as chicken, duck, turkey, fish and other seafoods. Rotate your grains. Don’t eat the same old wheatbased products every day. Gluten, a substance found in wheat, barley, oats and spelt, disagrees with most people without them even noticing. Shake up your eating habits by trying new types of gluten-free grains such as quinoa, millet, brown rice or buckwheat. Make each meal healthy. Make sure all your main meals have equal amounts of carbohydrates, protein and fruits/vegetables – and a small quantity of healthy fat as well. To learn a whole lot more about healthy living, be sure to join us in the next Healthy Living Workshop in September.

Longevity Softgels A potent, proprietary blend of fatsoluble antioxidants, Young Living’ LongevityTM softgels contains thyme, orange, clove, and frankincense essential oils. Studies show that as we age, particular enzymes decrease and free radicals become abundant. Toxic, polluted environments can also take their toll on the body by increasing free radical production. Smoke, radiation, car fumes, poor diets, polluted water and even sunlight speed the ageing process. Free radicals damage the body cells and cause cellular malfunctions and mutations. Programming the body to produce higher quantities of antioxidants helps combat free radical damage and slows the negative effects associated with growing older.

Young Living’s Longevity softgels is as essential as a multi-vitamin and should be taken daily to prevent the damaging effects of ageing, diet, and the environment.

Jet lag is another problem Young Living can help you with. The key to overcoming jet lag is to adjust to your destination’s time zone the soonest you can. Stay awake when it’s day time and sleep only when it’s time to. To perk you up and rid yourself of fatigue, put 2 drops of Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata in your bath. To help you sleep, bathe with 2 drops of Lavender and Geranium before you go to bed. For emergencies and other travel discomforts such as unwanted headaches, cramps and muscle pains, Deep Relief Roll-On, Basil and Marjoram will come in handy. Just apply 2-4 drops on the problem area. Eating out is one of the major highlights of any vacation so make sure to have a bottle of DiGize with you to relieve you of any digestive problem and provide you with calming effect for stomach discomforts. You see, Young Living has a wide array of natural alternatives that you can bring with you in your travels to help with discomforts, emergencies and other travelrelated concerns.
