EUROPE

Young Living Europe is extremely excited to announce the official countdown to the Germany Founders Meeting on September 22 in Nürnberg, Germany. John Doughty, managing director for Young Living Europe, will host this event, which will mark the official commencement of Young Living in Germany. All attendees will receive a special Founders pin and certificate, as well as recognition at future events.

April was quite a month for Young Living Singapore! Not only was it the biggest sales month, but it was also a month of new leaders, with Richard Ho advancing to Gold and Shamala Tan and Sum Tong Ng becoming Silvers. The Essential Rewards Enhancement Program was also rolled out this month, which offers members increased benefits and additional rewards for staying on Essential Rewards. Phase 1 of the Circle of Abundance incentive program also came to a close this month. The top three members who achieved the highest accumulated PV from January to April and who will be sent to the 2012 International Grand Convention in Salt Lake are first-place winner, Wan Huey San Christina; second-place winner, Foo Siow Huei; and third-place winner, Pang Kim Choo.

The power and influence of Young Living is quickly reaching all corners of the world. From the dedication of passionate distributors to health-care professionals who understand the benefits of our products, Young Living’s global awareness is ever increasing. Never was this awareness more apparent than during the Young Living Japan Tour, where medical professional Ed Daily, RN, took the Young Living message to more than 1,500 people in Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Osaka, and Tokyo. Held in late April, the tour was the perfect stage for Ed to teach distributors and non-distributors alike about the potency and effectiveness of Young Living essential oils in their

ability to alleviate the symptoms of PANIC—pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation, and exhaustion—when combined with specific yoga practices and meditation. The classes proved to be extremely beneficial to both the engaged learners and Young Living Japan, as the region exceeded its goal by achieving more than $135,000 in product sales. In addition to the financial goal, the region added 68 new distributors. The Japan Tour will continue in July with Dan Purser, MD.

What an amazing experience Young Living Australia had with Dr. Dan Purser on his recent visit to the land down under. After traveling to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney to discuss the many benefits of essential oils, Dr. Purser was able to enjoy a couple of days of relaxation, including a scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef. From there the Young Living tour continued on to the Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay, and Brisbane. Young Living Australia is looking forward to Dr. Purser returning in the near future.

Young Living News From Around The World JAPAN

Young Living Japan released Trauma Life™ and Highest Potential™ essential oil blends in April, and both are highly appreciated by distributors. Before launching the oil blends separately, the Japan office sold them as part of the Young Living Release™ and Performance™ kits. The distributors in Japan have anxiously awaited these oils since 2011, when their usage and benefits were presented during the Japan Tour.

EUROPE

Young Living Europe is extremely excited to announce the official countdown to the Germany Founders Meeting on September 22 in Nürnberg, Germany. John Doughty, managing director for Young Living Europe, will host this event, which will mark the official commencement of Young Living in Germany. All attendees will receive a special Founders pin and certificate, as well as recognition at future events.

April was quite a month for Young Living Singapore! Not only was it the biggest sales month, but it was also a month of new leaders, with Richard Ho advancing to Gold and Shamala Tan and Sum Tong Ng becoming Silvers. The Essential Rewards Enhancement Program was also rolled out this month, which offers members increased benefits and additional rewards for staying on Essential Rewards. Phase 1 of the Circle of Abundance incentive program also came to a close this month. The top three members who achieved the highest accumulated PV from January to April and who will be sent to the 2012 International Grand Convention in Salt Lake are first-place winner, Wan Huey San Christina; second-place winner, Foo Siow Huei; and third-place winner, Pang Kim Choo.

The power and influence of Young Living is quickly reaching all corners of the world. From the dedication of passionate distributors to health-care professionals who understand the benefits of our products, Young Living’s global awareness is ever increasing. Never was this awareness more apparent than during the Young Living Japan Tour, where medical professional Ed Daily, RN, took the Young Living message to more than 1,500 people in Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Osaka, and Tokyo. Held in late April, the tour was the perfect stage for Ed to teach distributors and non-distributors alike about the potency and effectiveness of Young Living essential oils in their

ability to alleviate the symptoms of PANIC—pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation, and exhaustion—when combined with specific yoga practices and meditation. The classes proved to be extremely beneficial to both the engaged learners and Young Living Japan, as the region exceeded its goal by achieving more than $135,000 in product sales. In addition to the financial goal, the region added 68 new distributors. The Japan Tour will continue in July with Dan Purser, MD. More than 1,100 tickets have already been sold for this exciting leg of the tour.

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 industry-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.”

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-laEssential Edge News

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-la-Rotonde 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.

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.
