C’mon, It’s Time to Plant! Do Young Living Like Never Before As we gear up for the 2013 Spring Planting in late April at the Highland Flats and St. Maries farms, let’s look back on what you had to say about Young Living

Founder’s Message

Young Living 2013 Winter Harvest participants Chris and Lisa Taylor, Brenda and Scott Schuler, Lula Schiller, Shelley and Kelly O’Hara, and Robyn and Randy Murrah took advantage of the tremendous opportunities the harvest experience brings to all who attend.

Robyn and Randy Murrah Gold

“I attended the Winter Harvest for the first time this year at the urging of Scott and Brenda Schuler. Frankly, I wasn’t too thrilled with the idea but thought it would be a good experience for my wife. Turns out, it was a very impactful experience for me. “Not only did I make several new friends, but I also learned a tremendous amount about Young Living, its leaders, and myself. I gained a much greater respect for the company and for what goes into these little bottles of oil. “Part of the experience of the harvest is having the opportunity to participate in any aspect of the process that may appeal to you. It enables you to be a part of something bigger; an opportunity to help gain a new perspective and understanding for what is involved in producing our oils. It is something impossible to understand until you’ve experienced it.”

Margaret Van Star

“I really had no idea what the Winter Harvest was all about, but because I was introduced to essential oils a short while ago, I thought it would be a tremendous learning experience. Little did I know what an overwhelming, life-changing experience it would be! To be able to see and participate firsthand in how the oils are produced and to be part of the process from start to finish is something I will never forget. “I truly urge everyone to participate in this wonderful experience.”

Brenda and Scott Schuler Crown Diamond

“The combination of the beautiful mountains, aroma of the blue spruce, quality time to connect and learn from fellow distributors and Gary and Mary Young creates a magical experience that everyone should have. Wow! “Everyone who went with us this year, including three couples, went home with a new respect for Young Living and our oils. Brenda and I always talk about the importance of being a product of the product, and attending the harvest adds a new dimension that allows us to understand the products and processes in another way.”

Chris and Lisa Taylor Silver

“This was the first year we attended the Winter Harvest, and it will not be the last. If I had to describe the harvest, I would call it an educational opportunity every distributor should have. “The harvest also opened my eyes to so much about Young Living. I appreciate Gary on a whole new level; his desire, dedication, drive, and passion are talked about often, but until you work with him for a week, you truly don’t understand what he does for all of us. “It is really hard to put this experience into words, but it is life changing, and I encourage everyone to come to a harvest for this experience.” THE

We are so excited for the future of Young Living and are awed by the way this year is beginning! December was our highest sales month in history, and January was a “blazing” month of success and excitement. I hope you are feeling how much you are a part of this giant rolling tide of growth, as we affirm our place as the World Leader in Essential Oils®. Last year was monumentally successful. Because of your efforts and our unmatched products, we finished 2012 with the highest revenue quarter in our history. It was the most exhilarating and rewarding year of transformation. Never in the history of MLM has a company changed its marketing program and achieved a record year for growth. You are all part of that. You made it happen. We express our thanks and gratitude to all of you for diving into our new compensation plan and making such a smooth transition. Many inactive distributors are coming back into activity, and many who have not previously taught the plan are teaching others in their organizations. It is truly rewarding to see the growth, which we attribute to a positive attitude and commitment. Your potential for personal and business growth has never been higher. Because of our recent success, we are accelerating our global expansion. This year Young Living will officially open in Canada, Hong Kong, and Germany. Plan to attend, if possible. As Young Living grows, I urge you to find ways to grow your business. Maybe one of these new regions will be an exciting new realm for you. Our goals for Young Living are high, and you are the ones to make it happen. BELIEVE in that TRANSFORMATION and help make this the greatest year in our history!

Share the Winter Fun with our Circle of Abundance Phase 2 Winners at the 2013 Balsam Fir Winter Harvest! Earlier this February, our Circle of Abundance Phase 2 Reward Trip Winners - Lim Poh Tin, Deanna Koh, Christina Wan, together with their guests - Loo Lai Ping and Lynn Cham, were given an opportunity to participate in the Balsam Fir Harvest, and get a chance to experience how Young Living’s essential oils come into being, right from scratch! Through their hard work, our members were able to become part of the actual harvesting and distilling of oils like Balsam Fir and Blue Spruce - precious essential oils that they use everyday. Here are some photos and testimonials from the members at their first ever harvest trip!

Gary and members from all over the world, working hard at the harvest.

Loo Lai Ping, Lim Poh Tin, Christina Wan and Deanna Koh all geared up to face the cold weather.

Let’s hear it from Lynn Cham, Star It was a very good experience and I am thankful to Deanna for choosing to share her award with me. I was excited to witness the process of obtaining balsam fir essential oil! Now, whenever I smell Balsam Fir EO, it would bring back memories of the Highlands Flats farm and St Maries distillery. We had the opportunity to enjoy the new jacuzzis filled with Balsam Fir and Blue Spruce water. Gary has decided not to waste the essence filled water used in steam distillation. The water is antibacterial and has healing properties. Perfect reward after working next door at the distillery. The people we met were passionate about EO and very hardworking. None of us from Singapore could manage a full 12 hr shift at the distillery! Cristina Campbell was spontaneous and gave us 2 talks - one on Everyday Oils and another on the Twelve Oils from the Ancient Scripture. Another guy, Steve introduced his cologne. His own blend called, “Jesus’ scent”, was made up of Myrrh, Aloes, Cassia (according to Psalm 45:8), Frankincense and Spikenard. There were others who freely shared how they have benefitted from YLEO. It was heartening and encouraging. This trip was an eye-opener and I would recommend every distributor to experience a harvest at least once!

AS YOUNG LIVING researchers were investigating potential ingredients for the new NingXia Red formula, they came across an exciting ingredient: grape seed extract. Grape seed extract (GSE) is derived from whole grape seeds, is Kosher and Halal approved, and is also one of the largest natural depositories of polyphenols. NingXia Red utilizes a premium GSE that is standardized to a minimum 90 percent total polyphenols and is shown in studies to be superior to other GSE. This structurally unique, water-soluble GSE has been selectively extracted to include a higher percentage of lower molecular weight polyphenols, which improves absorption and bioavailability. Its patented, water-based extraction process also ensures that the final ingredient remains chemical free. This powerhouse ingredient boosts NingXia Red’s ORAC score, adds polyphenols, and allowed for Kosher and Halal certification. When combined with essential oils and the wolfberry superfruit, GSE plays an important roll in NingXia Red’s promise to deliver a delicious, whole-body nutrient infusion for everyone to enjoy.


THE SECRET OF a gorgeous face is clean skin! Young Living’s wonderful cleansing products will thoroughly cleanse and remove residue from the skin’s surface, leaving your face clean, fresh, and soft. Our luxurious formulas, enhanced with the gentle but powerful blend of essential oils, are composed of highly selective natural ingredients that protect the skin and help restore youthful complexion. Our A•R•T® Gentle Foaming Cleanser will help keep your skin’s pH levels in perfect balance, while our Orange Blossom Facial Wash adds the aroma of orange trees encompassed in a lavender field. By removing dust, perspiration, and environmental stresses, you are able to maintain a healthy and attractive complexion. Follow these simple yet important steps to achieve your best look:

Singapore March 2013 Issue

Join us for an Introduction to Raindrop Workshop with Tamara Packer, LMT

Message from the General Manager What a fantastic month February has been! We have seen so many great people become part of the Young Living family here in Singapore that I am truly inspired to do everything I can to share the products myself. I had the humbling opportunity to share a little of my knowledge on Channel News Asia earlier this past month, and hope that there are at least a few who now want to learn more about essential oils as a result. I am often amazed at how the excitement and success each of you bring to Young Living inspires me to share the benefit of Young Living oils as well. Unfortunately there are many people in this world who like to tell you that you can’t do something, that you cannot reach for, and achieve your dreams. It is to these people that I say move over and make way for those of us who are achieving ours! One of my inspirations comes from Nadiah Hanipah, our Customer Care Manager at Young Living Singapore. Late last year Nadiah ran a 10k race, and although there may have been many obstacles or detractors in her way, she set her sights on her goal and finished the race. A 10K race may not seem like much to some, but to me it is a great inspiration when I see others overcome discomfort to strive toward distant goals. While sometimes it may seem that our goals are either too difficult to accomplish, or too far away to reach, if we truly keep our focus on what we want to accomplish, we cannot fail to accomplish them. The famous depression-era entrepreneur E. Joseph Cossman said “Obstacles are what we see when we take our focus off our goals.” Don’t lose your focus! If you made goals or resolutions during the new year, I encourage you to write them down and put them somewhere you can see, and renew your focus on them every day. In every office I have worked in for the past 10 years I have installed a white board to write my goals, benchmarks and important notes. This way I can see them every day and know precisely what I am working toward. Like Nadiah running her races, I do not want to be distracted by the minor obstacles that arise on a daily basis. This month we are introducing the new, reformulated Transformation Essential Oil Blend. I recommend diffusing some every day while building your Young Living business to help transform your vision into an amazing reality. This blend can be a powerful tool to help build inspirational motivation to achieve objectives and build a strong sense of purpose with everything you do. What a great product to have every day! I look forward to another amazing month in March. This is truly a great time to be a part of Young Living! Best of Success!
