Volume 2.12 Dec. 2012

The remarkable joy of the Christmas season is upon us! We feel this joy as recipients of goodwill brought by neighbors, friends, and family; we experience this joy as selfless givers desiring to make a difference in a stranger’s life; and we see this joy in the eyes of a child who looks heavenward with unrelenting hope and optimism. This is the joy we can know only through the Giver of it—the Babe in Bethlehem, whom we celebrate this season. His was a life of service and giving, of living with perfect selflessness. Through His example, we dedicate ourselves this month to easing burdens, repairing what is broken, and lifting heavy hearts. We lay claim to the sincere, genuine happiness that is inherently ours. As a Young Living distributor, you have the ability and responsibility to share a similar message, one that can ease physical, mental, and financial burdens while spreading wellness, purpose, and abundance—all crucial components to happiness. Sharing such important gifts has never been easier. With our world-class products and your enthusiastic optimism, happiness can be attained by anyone. During this season of gift giving, Mary and I would like to give you something we have been working on for a very long time. It has the power to transform your life and your business through introducing more people to Young Living. It is our new compensation plan, and it will be ready for you beginning January 1. As you read this issue of the Essential Edge News and become familiar with the plan’s many advantages, you will realize that you now have the opportunity to reach farther and climb higher than ever before. My challenge to you is to share the amazing gifts Young Living has to offer. Share our message of happiness and experience always the joy this wondrous season brings.

Visit youngliving.com for detailed information regarding the new compensation plan.

Current Team Performance Bonus The Team Performance Bonus of our current plan is unsustainable because it does not encourage the building of the proper structure of an organization for long-term growth and sustainability. Therefore, we have eliminated the Team Performance Bonus. For any distributor who has a team bonus structure, Young Living will pay half of the team bonus that would have been earned during the month. However, the team bonus will be reduced by 10% each month until it is gone or by June 30, 2013, at which time this program will expire completely.

This exciting transformation is scheduled to launch on January 1, 2013. This will be a fabulous new addition to the transformation that began when we returned from Ecuador and Gary resumed his position as CEO. We are the world leader in essential oils. With the enhancements in the compensation plan and new training materials, we will see a new surge in motivation and extraordinary growth in our company. Together, we can inspire people worldwide to greater wellness, purpose, abundance, and vitality. Thank you for all you do for Young Living, for your love and support, and for joining us in this newest celebration of our transformation. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Many of Young Living’s Gold and Platinum distributors took a November reprieve and converged in beautiful Guayaquil, Ecuador, for the 2012 Master Leader Retreat to celebrate their dynamic leadership and to change the lives of students at the Young Living Academy. The pinnacle of this remarkable event came midweek, when many of the distributors who have sponsored students at the academy met for the first time the child, and in some cases the children, they have directly benefited. The introductions proved intensely emoEssential Edge News

tional, with both distributors and students sharing joyful embraces, tears, and sincere gratitude. Thanksgiving had come two weeks early a continent away. For Darren and Sera Johnson, Gold distributors from Texas, meeting plant and distill at Young their two sponsored students inspired them to double their efforts and change the lives of two more children—a stunning act of generosity. In all, every one of the 23 students who were not sponsored at daybreak were accounted for and blessed at day’s end with the hope of a bright future. “A highlight of our trip was visiting the two children we have been sponsoring at the Young Living Academy in Chongon for the past 18 months through the D. Gary Young Foundation,” expressed Sera. “Our hearts were overjoyed to be able to hug these precious children,

meet their mothers, and see all that the foundation has done to give a better life through excellent academics, a healthy nutrition program, and life-skill training to entire families of that community who otherwise would have little hope. Seeing the fruit of such an exceptional school and program and seeing a light of hopes and dreams in the children’s eyes moved us to sponsor two more children while we were there.” Throughout the day at the academy, the distributors rolled up their sleeves and worked in the gardens, played baseball with the school’s championship team, and painted the exterior of the academy’s kindergarten in pink, green, yellow, and blue. For these Young Living leaders, it was a day of giving back and leading by example. “A lot of people wonder what Young Living is about,” said Ben Howden, a Platinum distributor from Vancouver, Canada. “They only know about the oils, and they don’t know about the other side of Young Living. We love to travel; we love to share. We’re a big family and we love all the different places in the world we go. If you really want to see Young Living, you have to come out with Young Living. We love Young Living!” Part of experiencing the world as a

Everyone had the pleasure of strolling the local streets, parks, and shops of Guayaquil, dancing in cultural celebrations, and, of course, getting kneedeep in the rich soil at the unique farm. “We are so thankful for the unique opportunity to have hands-on training and experience in the Seed to Seal® process, to work side by side on the farm with Gary Young, and to get to know other Young Living leaders,” said Sera Johnson. “Thank you, Gary and Mary Young and Young Living, for allowing us this life-changing experience at the Master Leader Retreat. We will never be the same!”

My mother was celebrating her 50th birthday with a group of her close friends, and throughout the party they kept calling each other girls. I was confused and kept ask-

so the goal then becomes to make it as healthy and beautiful as possible. If I were to ask you to name seven signs of aging, most of you would first cite wrinkles, followed by large pores, age spots, dryness, dullness, harsh skin texture, and uneven skin tone. But did you know that the aging face is more closely associated with age spots and uneven skin tone than with wrinkles? One of the best ways to improve your image at any age is to recognize the physical and psychological benefits that can be derived from spa products. We all know that today’s hectic lifestyle, including the current holiday season, often prevents us from even a quick trip to the spa. That is why I recommend that you try Young Living’s recently developed spa products, which allow you to enjoy a spa treatment in the comfort of your own home and when you have time.

Visit youngliving.com for detailed information regarding the new compensation plan.

Current Team Performance Bonus The Team Performance Bonus of our current plan is unsustainable because it does not encourage the building of the proper structure of an organization for long-term growth and sustainability. Therefore, we have eliminated the Team Performance Bonus. For any distributor who has a team bonus structure, Young Living will pay half of the team bonus that would have been earned during the month. However, the team bonus will be reduced by 10% each month until it is gone or by June 30, 2013, at which time this program will expire completely.

This exciting transformation is scheduled to launch on January 1, 2013. This will be a fabulous new addition to the transformation that began when we returned from Ecuador and Gary resumed his position as CEO. We are the world leader in essential oils. With the enhancements in the compensation plan and new training materials, we will see a new surge in motivation and extraordinary growth in our company. Together, we can inspire people worldwide to greater wellness, purpose, abundance, and vitality.

Many of Young Living’s Gold and Platinum distributors took a November reprieve and converged in beautiful Guayaquil, Ecuador, for the 2012 Master Leader Retreat to celebrate their dynamic leadership and to change the lives of students at the Young Living Academy. The pinnacle of this remarkable event came midweek, when many of the distributors who have sponsored students at the academy met for the first time the child, and in some cases the children, they have directly benefited.

For Darren and Sera Johnson, Gold distributors from Texas, meeting plant and distill at Young their two sponsored students inspired them to double their efforts and change the lives of two more children—a stunning act of generosity. In all, every one of the 23 students who were not sponsored at daybreak were accounted for and blessed at day’s end with the hope of a bright future. “A highlight of our trip was visiting the two children we have been sponsoring at the Young Living Academy in Chongon for the past 18 months through the D. Gary Young Foundation,” expressed Sera. “Our hearts were overjoyed to be able to hug these precious children,

meet their mothers, and see all that the foundation has done to give a better life through excellent academics, a healthy nutrition program, and life-skill training to entire families of that community who otherwise would have little hope. Seeing the fruit of such an exceptional school and program and seeing a light of hopes and dreams in the children’s eyes moved us to sponsor two more children while we were there.” Throughout the day at the academy, the distributors rolled up their sleeves and worked in the gardens, played baseball with the school’s championship team, and painted the exterior of the academy’s kindergarten in pink, green, yellow, and blue. For these Young Living leaders, it was a day of giving back and leading by example. “A lot of people wonder what Young Living is about,” said Ben Howden, a Platinum distributor from Vancouver, Canada. “They only know about the oils, and they don’t know about the other side of Young Living. We love to travel; we love to share. We’re a big family and we love all the different places in the world we go. If you really want to see Young Living, you have to come out with Young Living. We love Young Living!” Part of experiencing the world as a

Everyone had the pleasure of strolling the local streets, parks, and shops of Guayaquil, dancing in cultural celebrations, and, of course, getting kneedeep in the rich soil at the unique farm. “We are so thankful for the unique opportunity to have hands-on training and experience in the Seed to Seal® process, to work side by side on the farm with Gary Young, and to get to know other Young Living leaders,” said Sera Johnson. “Thank you, Gary and Mary Young and Young Living, for allowing us this life-changing experience at the Master Leader Retreat. We will never be the same!”

AIRASE: Fighting Antibacterial Resistance in Food Packaging Have you joined AIRASE yet? Here’s an example of a Hot News research article you will receive each week as part of your membership.

Food scientists at the University of Zaragoza in Spain understand that essential oils are excellent antimicrobial agents for use in food packaging. Bacterial resistance to antibiotics raises the question, “Do bacteria

develop resistance to essential oils as well?” The scientists’ work tested to see if there is a tendency for clinical isolates to develop resistance to these essential oils, as they often do against antibiotics.

The researchers gathered 48 clinical isolates and 12 reference strains of gram-negative bacilli to test against oregano essential oil, cinnamon essential oil, and combinations of the two oils. In their study, these scientists analyzed the susceptibility of the isolates and bacilli strains to the oils and their combination and also whether the bacteria would develop resistance to these essential oils. Lead author R. Becerril and co-authors C. Nerin and R. Gómez-Lus used minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) and did serial passages, which means they exposed the bacteria to the essential oils over and over again. In fact, after 50 passages, the study showed that all strains (48 clinical isolates and 12 reference strains) were susceptible to both essential oils and their combination. Scientists define susceptibility as whether an organism is vulnerable to the agent in question. In this particular study, all strains were susceptible to oregano and cin-

namon essential oils and a combination of both. It is of interest that just three strains out of the 60 treated with oregano, Serrata marcescens, Morganella morganii, and Proteus mirabilis, changed their antibiotic resistance profile and/or increased their resistance to this essential oil. The August 2012 study in the journal Foodborne Pathogens and Disease provides the food industry with good news of the effective antimicrobial agents oregano and cinnamon essential oils for possible use in food packaging. The abstract of this study can be found at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ pubmed/22827568.

The world leader in essential oils has outdone itself once again. During this year of transformation, Young Living has captured Gary Young’s vision and has experienced the biggest sales month in its history in October. Some of the company’s recordbreaking growth can be attributed to the introduction of a newly reformulated NingXia Red®, Young Living’s wolfberry-based nutrient infusion. People around the world have wholeheartedly embraced this powerful, essential oil-infused new juice, making it the most successful product launch in Young Living’s history. Young Living is also enjoying rapid Essential Edge News

global expansion as it continues to open new markets and expand existing ones. 2013 will see Young Living launch an official presence in at least four new countries, as even more people across the globe experience Young Living’s leadership, expertise, and the healing power of pure essential oils. “Our record-shattering growth can be attributed to the quality of our products, the enthusiasm of our distributors and employees, and the vision of our founder, D. Gary Young,” says Travis Ogden, COO. “As we head into the final months of the year, Young Living’s momentum has never been stronger, and our opportunity has never been greater.”
