Believe. Few words and concepts are more foundationally necessary or more powerful than this. Belief in something is the key motivator to acting on, pursuing, and achieving the thing that you most desire or wish to become. without believing that we can first become something more or achieve something higher, we linger on a directionless path to nowhere in particular, constantly fatigued by unfulfilled potential. Yet, with belief—in ourselves, in God, in others—we steer our own course with purpose, abundance, and a dream for greatness. The dreams each of us carry are vitally important to our happiness. we hope for them and focus our attention on them. At times they become so vivid that we can taste them. But dreams do not become reality through magic. realizing them takes inspiration, determination, and hard work. This June at our international Grand Convention, we will learn how to use our time wisely in building a business and will discover the inspiration that it takes to understand not only what it means to believe but also how to have the determination to actually believe. i am sure that you, at the conclusion of that remarkable week, will have an unrelenting belief in yourself and a pristine, clear vision of your future. if you have those things, you can realize your dreams and achieve greatness. This year’s theme of “Believe” builds on last year’s theme of “Transformation.” Believe in your new, transformed self. Please join us for this exciting week to learn how you can prosper and enjoy that success as you help take our mission to the world. The things that you learn at this year’s convention will be a guide to you for the rest of your life. do not wait; register today and prove to you that you believe in yourself.

Young Living Teaches, Helps Fund Ballet Scholarship in Italy YouNG liviNG FouNder and Ceo d. Gary Young, Nd, and sabina devita, edd, were recently invited to the prestigious vancliffen Arts Foundation’s international Ballet Competition in italy to educate an audience of more than 300 dancers and guests on the many therapeutic benefits of

in order to create a visual masterpiece for the audience. it is common for dancers to be reluctant to seek medical attention for injuries in fear of losing roles. in some cases, taking prescribed medication becomes a career-ending addiction for the dancer.

The director and co-founder of the vancliffen Arts Foundation, dr. Fernando milelli, hopes that the dancers, after hearing about the uses for essential oils, will seek more natural and healthy alternatives to help avert long-term harm to the body. one dancer participating in the competition injured his shoulder while practicing for his routine. The performance scheduled that evening required several lifts of female dancers, and not performing would mean losing an opportunity for him to earn a scholarship. “he came running to our table seeking relief; he couldn’t lift his arm without it hurting,” said dr. devita. “i rubbed several Young living essential oils into his muscles, including idaho balsam fir, marjoram, wintergreen, and PanAway®. he later reported that he was able to successfully continue his performance.” it is a privilege for Young living to be associated with such a wonderful foundation that supports talented performers like these dancers.

FollowiNG our reCeNT Young living Beauty school event, i received questions about the research behind our A∙r∙T® orchid line, which includes two wonderful products: A∙r∙T Beauty masque and A∙r∙T renewal serum. The benefits of both of these products, and specifically the use of the orchid flower, are based on thousands of years of Chinese herbal medicine. it is believed that orchids have the ability to absorb and retain moisture and adapt well to many extreme environments. The longevity of the flowers is the key benefit that is utilized for skin care. orchid extracts are used for their intense moisturizing effect and for their ability to help delay senescence— or natural aging—by supporting the strength of the skin’s main proteins. Another valuable ingredient found in our A∙r∙T orchid line is Japanese knotweed—a polygonum that has been traditionally used for its wound healing properties and for its ability to support healthy skin and provide

protection against the effects of free radicals. The Japanese use this plant in order to prepare a tea called Itadori, a word that means well-being. This and many other properties that may help generate youthful-feeling and -looking skin are found in the A∙r∙T orchid line. The effect of essential oils in both orchid products is very beneficial. Both blends—stress Away™ in the Beauty masque and sensation™ in the renewal serum—provide calming and soothing not only to the skin but also to the psyche and our emotions. use A∙r∙T renewal serum after cleansing your face morning and night. Be sure to follow up with your favorite Young living moisturizer. incorporate the Beauty masque a couple of times a week to help promote a younger, healthier-looking you.

Lavender Essential Oil: An "Adaptogen"? The Term AdAPToGeN has many meanings: to have a “normalizing effect,” to adapt or adjust ( from the Greek adapto). An adaptogen that has different results depending upon the need seems to be an unusual meaning of the term. lavender essential oil is the perfect example for the two opposing adaptations we discuss below. lavender is known worldwide to calm and relax. Babies crying with colic were soothed by abdominal massage and lavender oil in a study conducted at the department of Pediatric Nursing at Pemukkale university in Turkey1. dental patients in london who nervously awaited appointments were found to be calmer and less apprehensive after lavender was diffused in the office waiting room in a randomized-controlled trial2. Additionally, in a Thai study to assess the effects of lavender oil on emotional states and other bodily systems in healthy adults, the group that inhaled lavender oil categorized themselves as “more active, fresher, relaxed than subjects just inhaling base oil.” But what happens to lavender’s famous calming and relaxing abilities when given to people who are experiencing a bone-weary fatigue? This is where the “swiss Army Knife” of essential oils earns its nickname. researchers at sanyo hospital in Japan gave fatigued subjects aromatherapy, a footsoak in warm water containing lavender for 10 minutes, and reflexology with jojoba oil containing lavender for 10 minutes. Fatigue scores improved significantly. No matter how you define “adaptogen,” lavender seems to be able to adapt to the needs of the person who uses it.

sTeviA (reB A) is AN all-natural, zero-calorie sweetener extracted from the Stevia rebaudiana plant, a member of the chrysanthemum family. Native to Brazil and Paraguay, stevia leaves have been historically dried and used as tea sweeteners by native inhabitants. stevia extract’s water solubility, metabolic, and intense sweetening properties fit perfectly with NingXia red’s new formula. stevia is 200–300 times sweeter than sugar, and through its use, Young living’s researchers were able to lower the overall Brix (sugar content in an aqueous solution) score from 17 to 11 without sacrificing NingXia red’s naturally delicious flavor. The key to stevia’s non-caloric claim is found in the way it is metabolized by the body. reb A isn’t metabolized until it reaches the colon. once there, it is broken down into stevioside and releases a glucose molecule. This molecule is not absorbed by the body; instead, it feeds colon bacteria. The remaining stevioside is eliminated from the body by the liver and kidneys, thus yielding no calories to the body. unlike many sugar alcohols, stevia causes no gastrointestinal or stomach discomfort. sweetened with stevia extract, NingXia red is a delicious superfruit beverage that delivers wholesome goodness the entire family will enjoy.
