Believe COINCIDING WITH THIS year’s convention theme of Believe, D. Gary Young has reformulated our popular Believe™ essential oil blend. The new blend now includes the plentiful therapeutic benefits of Idaho blue spruce and Amazonian ylang ylang, both of which are harvested and distilled on site at Young Living farms. Young Living distributors will appreciate the addition of these new oils to Believe because of their ability to promote relaxation, emotional stability, and enlightenment. This powerful reformulation also contains frankincense, coriander, bergamot, geranium, and Idaho balsam fir—each included with the sole purpose of elevating life.

Coming soon in Singapore.

Restore Your Smile A BEAUTIFUL SMILE is not only about having straight, bright-white teeth; it’s also about having healthy gums. Gums play an important role in maintaining a youthful appearance, but if not taken care of, your gums can become plagued by disease that can cause bone loss and tooth decay—a situation that would age anyone. One of the most critical steps in preventing gum problems is flossing. When you don’t floss, bacteria build up quickly. To make this crucial activity more convenient and more effective, Young Living created Thieves® Dental Floss, a refreshing floss based on the strength of our therapeutic essential oil blend that includes clove, eucalyptus, and cinnamon, in addition to other valuable essential oils. Use Thieves Dental Floss regularly after brushing your teeth with one of Young Living’s Thieves toothpastes and rinsing your mouth with Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash. Below are some tips that may help promote a healthy mouth and a happy smile: 1. Add 1–2 drops of myrrh oil to your toothpaste to promote healthier gums. 2. Add 1–2 drops of lemon oil to your toothpaste to help promote a brighter smile. 3. To dull tooth pain or sensitivity, add 1 drop of clove oil to a cotton swab and gently massage onto the gum above the tooth.

A Very Grand Convention Indeed! Message from the General Manager

June was a very special month for Young Living members as the 2013 International Grand Convention was held in Salt Lake City, Utah. Attendees were in for a treat with enriching workshops conducted by keynote speakers such as Gary Young, Darren Hardy and Wayne Dyer. Members were able to experience first-hand, Young Living’s newest products, as well as had the opportunity to connect with members from all over the world. It was definitely a thrilling experience for all!

Wow! The recent International Grand Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah was truly a huge success! This was due especially to the excitement and energy of everyone who attended from South East Asia. It was wonderful to see so many of you again, and enjoy your companionship for the few days that we had together. The information that was shared at convention was invaluable and can help all of us lead healthier, more abundant lives. Dimple Malkani (SG) & Dolf Cheng (PH) with Cierra, Karen and Will

Singapore delegates: Emily Ho, Jenny Ho, Richard Ho, Jacq Ong, Kai Tan, Cennet Song, and Sheena Ling

Now it is time to take the things we learned from convention and share them with others. I am reminded of a quote by the famous aviator Norman MacEwan who said: “Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Having received such useful information on the benefits of essential oils, it is

and the oils, with others. Think of your favorite restaurant. How many times have you referred others to the restaurant? How often have you told others about how great it is? Now, how many times have you received a financial benefit for referring others to that

restaurant? You helped the restaurant make money by referring others to it, yet likely received nothing in return. While finances may not be the most important things in the lives of many, helping ourselves and others to wellness, purpose and abundance should be a priority for all of us.

“It all happened so fast that I couldn’t even believe it myself. To have achieved this, I couldn’t have done it without my friend and mentor Kai who encouraged me to believe in myself and never give up. I have learnt that many times, sharing with others on the oils is very much like sowing seeds in the field. While you may not see the immediate results and response that you are so hoping to get, do not be discouraged. Be sincere, be patient and be ready for the time will come when you will reap the harvest just like I did.”

Toh Sue Hwa Route #1 Silver in Six Achiever (SG) Advanced to the rank of Silver within 2 months of becoming Executive

“I embarked on my journey and personal experience with Young Living Essential Oils as a mother looking for an alternative, safe and natural way to help my 3 year old daughter. She had to rely on an inhaler and nebulizer to treat her breathing difficulties as an asthmatic. My husband is an asthmatic too and this condition in both of them made me anxious to find a natural solution which would not cause harm to their bodies. Ever since I used the various oils RC, Thieves and Breathe Again on them, their inhalers became white elephants. I was elated to see that these oils could help them tremendously. Having found these to be useful, I spread the joy to my friends who have kids in the same plight as my little girl. I enjoy helping people and my heart is filled with great satisfaction whenever I receive messages of gratitude from my friends who used the oils. These oils should be shared with everyone we care about indeed.


I am thankful to my family for being supportive and trusting me with using the oils on them. Today, we reap the benefits of being a healthier, happier family. I am also thankful to Gary Young for bringing us Young Living as well as my dear friend Xianhui for introducing me to Young Living. One year on, my little girl is now four and she has taken a special interest in learning the knowledge and smelling the natural oils herself. She amazes us with the mouthful of names of the different oils we have at home. Her personal oils are Lavender and Valor. My 5 month old boy has been benefiting from the oils as well, from Peace and Calming (diffused during bedtime) to DiGize (when he has a hard time with his tummy). I must say Young Living Essential Oils are truly essential to our family. As a mother, it is clearly the best product I have ever used. Share the joy today with all & everyone you love.“
