ONE OF OUR favorite times of the year is speeding toward us—the 2013 International Grand Convention! The week bursts with a tingling energy of optimism and joy as we converge on Salt Lake City to be part of a mission that we can only fulfill together: Young Living oils in every home. I chose this year’s theme—Believe—because it is at the heart of everything Young Living stands for. I have lived my life and built this company with a belief that there is a better way to live—a life of success and fulfillment. I did not want to be somebody who just worked hard, paid taxes, and then died. Being driven by my belief that I could make a difference, I went forth with determination and a vision that has encompassed the globe. You are the messengers who have carried that vision since we started more than 20 years ago and have watched Young Living blossom as the World Leader in Essential Oils®. Now is the time to celebrate our belief in ourselves, our gratitude for God’s healing gift of essential oils, and our excitement of Young Living. Let’s celebrate like never before at this year’s convention on June 18–22. I can promise you that this will be a time of learning and discovery that you will never forget. This is a year for all of us to Believe in our Transformation, a year to renew, and perhaps even a year to change our life’s mission. Don’t wait! Act now and let that transformation envelope you as you soar to new heights, believing in yourself with the anticipation of what is coming and what just might be around the corner. Register now and join us for the 2013 International Grand Convention. See you there!

WOULD YOU LIKE to recapture the supple, firm skin of your youth? My best advice to achieve this effect is to protect your skin from sun, eat right, drink plenty of water, and consistently use products that will provide the finishing touches to a more youthful appearance. For a fresh, youthful glow, less is usually more when it comes to skin care. However, one of the most important steps in your skin-care regimen should be to exfoliate. The skin is constantly generating new cells at the lower layers and sending them up to the surface. On their way up, these cells gradually die and become filled with keratin that protects the skin. As the cells age and slough off, they make room for younger cells—a process that slows as we age, making the skin rough, dull, and dry. Consequently, proper exfoliation is critical to healthy skin as we get older. Exfoliating may be done a few times a week, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, exfoliate 2–3 days a week. For drier, delicate skin, you should be exfoliating 1–2 times a week.

Young Living News from Around the World EUROPE

The first quarter of 2013 was so exciting for Young Living in Europe, producing record sales and successfully introducing several new products into the market. The European distributors love the additions to the existing product family, including Lavender Foaming Hand Soap and Idaho blue spruce. Young Living Europe is also looking forward to some exciting events taking place this year, including Germany’s grand opening in Nuremberg and the European Convention in Vienna.


Young Living Australia is excited to announce the introduction of two new products to the essential oil family: Idaho blue spruce and hinoki! Idaho blue spruce is a Young Living exclusive from the distilled spruce branches and needles on site at the St. Maries farm in Idaho. This amazing oil contains high percentages of alpha-pinene and limonene and has a pleasing evergreen aroma that may promote relaxation of both mind and body. Hinoki essential oil comes from the Japanese cypress and is native to central Japan. Hinoki wood has a spicy, lemon scent and is light pinkish-brown in color. It may uplift the mind and increase spiritual awareness.


Young Living Singapore enjoyed a very successful Raindrop Technique® training, which brought facilitator Tamara Packer to Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines in April. Tamara did a wonderful job, and members and guests learned about the amazing health benefits of the Raindrop Technique. Prior to the tour, the Singapore market held a private Raindrop Technique media event, where a workshop and Raindrop Technique sessions were given to members of various publications, including Wellness Way, Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Square Room, and SME. This was done with the help of Cierra Yet, training supervisor; Shuli Law, YL Platinum; and Claudia Hofmaier, YL Silver. In May, Singapore will hold its first Next Generation Leaders Meeting, a fullday event for select Executives focused on goal setting, leadership, and business building. Our guest speakers will be Frances Fuller, YL Diamond; Hong Chua and Patricia Gwee, YL Platinums; and Yonie Bonawi, YL Silver. It is quite evident that Singapore’s distributors are geared up toward leadership and fulfilling Gary’s vision of bringing Young Living into every home in the world!





With new products and great teamwork, Young Living Mexico is growing quickly. Our field and corporate leadership continue to team up and educate on the amazing products recently introduced, including Progessence Plus™ and Slique Essence™. These products are creating a great buzz in the market as we continue to offer the best products in Mexico for wellness and abundance.

Crown Diamond Teri Secrest visited Japan and held a six-city tour throughout the country in April. Nearly 1,500 people enjoyed her wonderful sessions, Vibrant Living with Pure Foods and Essential Oils and Celebrating Women’s Health. Prior to Teri’s tour, Young Living was introduced to Japan in two popular women’s magazines, which is helping to create a positive image of Young Living in the country.


Newly minted Young Living Canada celebrated its enormous milestone in March with a festive grand opening in Calgary. Joined by Gary and Mary Young and Young Living executive leadership, more than 1,000 people met for a weekend of opening ceremonies, presentations, and product trainings. This exciting weekend set the tone perfectly for Young Living Canada’s optimistic future.

Ecuador and the surrounding regions have been greatly blessed by the knowledge shared by Dr. Leida Arguello. Through her travels and webinars, thousands of people are being educated on essential oils around Latin America, and we are grateful for her commitment to sharing Young Living.

WITH THE LAUNCH of our new compensation plan, Young Living successfully improved the ability of distributors to teach and build their businesses faster. Gary, Mary, and many others worked long and hard on these improvements to give distributors a competitive edge and to solidify Young Living as the World Leader in Essential Oils®. The same can be said of the new NingXia Red® product line. Many individuals worked countless hours to improve an already exceptional product. The new, improved benefits include seven times more essential oil, grape seed extract, and Kosher and Halal approval. As with the compensation plan, NingXia Red’s increased benefits have truly simplified business building, giving distributors yet another competitive edge. By focusing on its superior health benefits and the use of yuzu, lemon, orange, and tangerine essential oils, Young Living distributors can use

NingXia Red as a gateway product to introducing individuals to the world of essential oils, preparing them for the next step of incorporating more oils into their daily lives. Together, the new compensation plan and NingXia Red have simplified the process for attracting and retaining new distributors, advancing through the ranks at a faster pace, and more quickly qualifying for bonuses. Utilizing NingXia Red in your business can be as simple as adding a 4 pack (Item No. 3044) or 2-oz. singles (now full PV) to your Essential Rewards order or through sponsoring with the Start Living with NingXia Red kit (Item No. 4892). Regardless of the path you take, as Platinum distributor Karen Malone explains, “NingXia Red gives us the foundation to repair and restore our health, and that’s why I love making Start Living with NingXia Red my sign-up kit of choice.”

Singapore May 2013 Issue

A Weekend Well Spent with Raindrop Technique Expert, Tamara Packer Last April 27, Tamara Packer- Raindrop Technique Expert and former Therapy Director at Gary Young’s Nova Vita Clinic in Equador- graced us with her presence and facilitated a very enriching and fun Raindrop Workshop at the Singapore Expo Max Atria.

Message from the General Manager I hope everyone is having a wonderful month of May! I want to extend a very special acknowledgment to all mothers this month. My own mother has been a special inspiration in my life, and I would hope, where possible, that we can all express our gratitude to our mothers this special month for their sacrifices on our behalf. It was great seeing so many of you at the Raindrop Technique™ training with Tamara Packer at the end of April. What a remarkable event! For those of you who were able to attend, I hope you were able to take home some valuable information on this amazing application of essential oils. I went through a very similar training several years ago while visiting the farm in Ecuador. At the time I was fortunate enough during the training to give several Raindrop Techniques to different volunteers. It is truly amazing the effect that a Raindrop can have. Some of the receivers felt completely relaxed afterward, while others felt truly energized and ready to take on the world! It has been my experience that the Raindrop Technique brings balance to our lives. For those in need of relaxing, it relaxes, for those in need of a little extra energy, it energizes. One of the key points that I took away from my training was that the Raindrop Technique is for everybody. Nobody should feel they cannot experience or share Raindrop Technique because of a lack of training or experience. I encourage each of you to purchase a Raindrop Technique Kit, and simply follow the steps outlined in the enclosed DVD. As each of you enjoy new experiences with Raindrop Technique, with the essential oils individually, or with any other Young Living product, please feel free to share those experiences with us here in the Singapore office. I love to hear of the positive results people have with Young Living products and, with your permission, would like to share those experiences with others. It is these occurrences that build confidence, strengthen resolve and inspire others to extend themselves in order to share in the experiences themselves. For further training on essential oils and other Young Living products, I strongly encourage each of you to make plans to attend the Young Living Grand Convention this June. This amazing event provides first-hand training from Gary Young on many Young Living products, as well as training from other keynote speakers, the opportunity to network with distributors from around the world, and information on new and upcoming products. Each convention is a special event to me and I look forward to receiving the information each and every year.

The lively energy and the eagerness to learn and share filled the hall as members helped each other do the hands-on massage while Tamara ran through the steps on stage. It was a truly amazing atmosphere. We are also very thankful to have leaders such as Elsie Pang (Silver), Kai Tan (Gold), Patricia Gwee (Platinum), Joycelyn Chua (Silver) and Fee Boey (Gold) to act as facilitators during the event. We also had the opportunity to recognize our new leaders, Chua Hong Leong and Law ShuLi (Platinum), Patricia Gwee (Platinum), Yonie Bonawi (Gold), Fee Boey and Nigel Pendrigh (Gold), John Wong (Gold), Donna Lim (Silver), Noorsaadah Binte Noordin (Silver) and Chong Qiulong (Silver). The energy of the event was simply incredible, making this one of our favorite events so far! YL Singapore crowd getting ready for the event to start.
