Young Living is growing RAPIDLY…at a rate of 45,000 new members/month and $40 MILLION dollars in sales per month.

One of the major debuts happening at convention this year is a re-branding effort headed up by Jared Turner, Chief Sales and Marketing Director, who was generous enough to join us tonight and share TONS of exciting news!  The new brand will take  our  current brand that reflects our rich traditional heritage and expand it to be more modern and appealing to younger demographics while still representing our history and roots.

A repackaging effort will make the oil visible inside of our bottles, something that has needed to be addressed for a long time!  Packaging will be created using wood chips from the Highland Flats Tree Farm (don’t ask me how this works because I don’t know yet!).

The next Global Leadership Cruise will be announced at Convention, and “may or may not involve Scandanavia”.

ON VALOR:  (God I love this company)  We did find a Black Spruce supplier that was very reputable, but unfortunately that batch still did not meet our high standards.  We have another supplier in Canada who is able to meet our standards, but has not been able to get in to harvest the trees due to weather conditions.  Young Living paid this supplier extra to give them the means to go in and pull some branches to distill a small batch of Black Spruce oil, and this is how they are able to make a limited quantity of Valor available to us on Tuesday, April 15, on a first come, first served basis!

A few highlights regarding this year’s International Grand Convention:

Instead of a “Product Expo”, convention will feature a “Lifestyle Expo” with little “storefronts”.  Each will have a different theme (examples given were pets, athletics, Dr Mom, business tools) where demonstrations will take place throughout convention teaching us how to use Young Living products in these different lifestyle categories.

An “Intro” video is being created which will debut at Convention and will be included in the Starter Kits going forward from there.  It will be a story of a family that starts using the products and will show how the family incorporates every aspect of the Young Living Lifestyle (Wellness, Purpose and Abundance).  It will be an amazing tool for presentations, and for new members to learn more about Young Living once they get started!

Keynote Speakers:

D Gary Young

John Maxwell

Darren Hardy

William Davis, author of “Wheat Belly”

For the first year ever, Convention may SELL OUT!  Over 8,000 have already registered!  Record breaking year!

Stay tuned for more amazing info from tomorrow’s FULL DAY of learning with Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils!

Chemical Free Living is Serious Business

4829391616_81689e4ce4_b

I had a big A-Ha moment yesterday.  It wasn’t a realization of anything I didn’t already know, but kind of a “Duh, you big Dummy, I told you so” kind of message from myself.  I am a huge proponent of chemical free living.  We use essential oils for just about everything, I make homemade laundry detergent and soaps, and I drive my husband crazy.  But yesterday, I had a few fly-aways.  I had a bad hair day.  And I thought, you know what, a little hairspray won’t be terrible, and then I won’t look like I just rolled out of bed!  So I did it.  And even I, Captain-Clean-Personal-Care-Products, was shocked at just how terrible that little bit of hairspray was.  I was having a perfectly fine morning, just getting ready to head out for a couple of meetings and a lunch date with a buddy.  The dog was being a good boy, and I was on time.  Then the spray.  At first, the scent just stung my nose a little, but I haven’t used hairspray in so long that didn’t surprise me.  But then I started to get grumpy.  REALLY grumpy.  And my heart was fluttering a little…kind of that uneasy, irritated, anxious, “I’m running way late” feeling, even though I wasn’t late.  I got out the door and into my car, thinking that being in the fresh air would dissipate things, but it didn’t.  I could still smell the hairspray and I was getting grumpier!  Even though I actually knew what was happening, I couldn’t control it.  And I started remembering reading all these articles about petrochemicals and endocrine disruptors and how they can cause anxiety and depression…I used to suffer from anxiety (before Valor essential oil blend came along) and my anxiety symptom has ALWAYS been irritability (my family and husband can attest to that!).  I knew it was whatever was in the hairspray.  And then I remembered the last time I had used the hairspray…the day of our engagement photo shoot.  My husband was not happy that I had used it because of the strong scent, and I can remember saying that the smell was making him angry!  I thought he was nuts of course, but now it makes sense.  I ran a couple of errands and began thanking my lucky stars that my next stop was my mother’s house.  I was still miserable when I got there.  And I washed my hair immediately with some nice paraben and sulfate free shampoo.  And I immediately felt better.  Even though I know all about how these chemicals can effect us, I still almost can’t believe how overwhelming this was.  But that hairspray went right in the garbage, along with a few straggling products we still had in our bathroom that don’t quite make the cut.

So for those of you reading this who are dealing with anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders…I implore you to take a look at your personal care products, and do some research on the ingredients.  The simple act of cleaning up a few products could really save you a whole lot of misery!!

What is The Raindrop Technique?

 

3471496093_3caa87378c_b

The Raindrop Technique is a beautifully simple yet deeply rejuvenating treatment involving the application of genuine essential oils to the feet, spine and back with massage techniques to promote deep relaxation and restoration. The effects of the treatment can be profound, and can include deep relaxation, pain relief, release of pent up emotions, and immune system strengthening.

After spending some time with Lakota Indians, Gary Young (founder of Young Living Essential Oils) became fascinated by the history of one of their traditional ceremonies. Long ago, before the establishment of the current border system, these American Indians would travel north into Canada at the time when the Aurora Borealis was most active. They would stand with their arms outstretched, inhaling deeply and “breathing in” the electricity and energy of the Aurora Borealis, and then “breathing” it back out through their spine. Many illnesses and injuries were healed during these trips, all attributed to the healing energy of the Aurora Borealis. Once the borders were established, and the people could no longer travel to the site, they attempted to re-create the experience in ceremony. As one person stood with arms outstretched, another would stand behind them and perform feather strokes up the spine, energizing and awakening the healing energy within the receiver. Gary Young realized that this technique, combined with the healing energy and frequency of genuine essential oils, would be able to achieve amazing results.

Essential oils are the “lifeblood” of plants, and can have great benefits when applied topically, inhaled or even ingested in some cases. The high concentration of essential oils makes them highly effective in fighting bacteria and viruses, stimulating the nerves, tissue regrowth, and enhancing and improving mood. The Raindrop treatment utilizes 9 very powerful oils: Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Peppermint, Aroma Siez (muscle relaxing blend), and Valor (energy balancing blend). These oils together create a highly detoxifying, immune boosting, and deeply balancing and relaxing experience.

The treatment begins with application of the oils to foot “vitaflex” points, similar to a reflexology treatment. Vitaflex means “vitality through the reflexes. Oils are applied to these points and then the points are stimulated to send an electrical charge down the nerve pathways until a break in the path (caused by damage or toxins) is met and addressed by the chemistry of the oils. The oils are then dropped directly onto the spine from the bottle. This is done this way so that there is no interference by the therapist in the initial reaction between the energy of the oils and the energy of the client. Gentle stroking of the spine and gentle massage to the muscles surrounding the spine help to facilitate relaxation and absorption of the oils for maximum results. A hot compress is applied at the end of the application to further “drive in” the oils.

There are very few contraindications for Raindrop Technique, just about anyone can receive this powerful treatment.  So whether you’re just looking to relax, or are interested in a serious immune system boost or pain relief, Raindrop Technique just may be right for you!

Why Abundance Essential Oil Blend Works

I love Abundance Oil.  It is a blend of Orange, Frankincense, Patchouli, Clove, Ginger, Myrrh, Cinnamon, and Spruce essential oils that smells like a little bit of heaven.   It was created to enhance the frequency of the harmonic magnetic energy field that surrounds us. This higher frequency creates what is called “the law of attraction,” which refers to the things we attract to ourselves. Abundance opens us to a wealth of possibilities. Not to mention that the combination of oils in this blend are amazing for the immune system and for fighting bacteria and viruses!

4312022279_428eab239b_b

Being a fan of the “Law of Attraction” and “Power of Positive Thinking” concept, I wanted to know more about how this oil ties into those ideas.  Of course, as soon as I decided I wanted to know more, an email showed up in my inbox with an explanation written by Hiroko Hibbard, a fellow Young Living member located in Vancouver, WA:

Why Abundance Works – authored by Hiroko Hibbard

This is my answer to the “Abundance” questions.

I call Abundance oil the “Feng Shui in a bottle”. I do Feng Shui consultation and I highly recommend this oil to help us bring Abundance and Prosperity into our life.

Some of my clients have interesting experiences with Abundance and they all ask “How does it work”? I even questioned myself and here is the answer I came up with.

Abundance oil contains 7 oils; Myrrh, Cinnamon Bark, Frankincense, Patchouly, Orange, Clove, Ginger, and Spruce.

As you can tell from the descriptions of each oil in EODR under Abundance;

Myrrh possesses the frequency of wealth.

Cinnamon Bark was thought to have a frequency that attracted wealth and abundance.

Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it.

Patchouli represented money and those who possessed it were considered to be wealthy.

Clove was associated with great abundance and those who possessed it were considered wealthy.

Spruce was believed to possess the frequency of prosperity.

Physical level:
Some of these oils are highly antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-infectious, anti-viral….

Frankincense builds immune function and antitumoral. It is being studied for its ability to help improve human growth hormone receptivity.

Spruce helps the respiratory and nervous systems.

Orange helps prevent the growth of bacteria, stops free radicals, and enhances the absorption of vitamin C in the body.

Emotional and Spiritual levels:
Then, some oils are great to release some emotions and enhance spirituality.

Myrrh is one of the highest levels of sesquiterpense, a class of compounds that has direct effects on the hypothalamus, pituitary, and amygdala, the emotional center of the brain. It has been used to enhance the feeling of spirituality.

Frankincense is excellent anti-depressant. It helps oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands, which stimulate and elevate the mind, for overcoming stress and despair.
It is known for its anointing and healing powers and was reportedly used to treat every conceivable ill known to man…

Aromatic influence of Spruce helps to open and release emotional blocks, bringing about a feeling of balance and grounding.

Orange was believed to bring joy, peace, and happiness to those who possessed it. It is elevating to the mind and body and bring joy and peace.

I recently facilitated Feng Shui workshop and shared that in order for us to bring Abundance in our life, we need to cleanse our body, clear mind and go deep within to become conscious of what is going on around us. If our body is toxic, our mind is filled with negative emotions and it is challenging to connect to our own spirit. That means our body is filled with junks and we don’t have enough room to accept Abundance.

Abundance oil is so powerful and applying this oil can help us on the multi-levels; physically, emotionally and spiritually and we become like a magnet to attract Abundance (Abundance oil has a frequency of “Law of Attraction”).

This is the best explanation I came up with.

I normally suggest people to wear as perfume, apply a couple of drops on their checkbook, wallets. And, add a bottle of Abundance to the paint before painting on the wall. It’s Amazing oil.

I have a lot of experiences with this oil. I feel so blessed to have one.

Enjoy Oiling!!!

Pharmacological, Physiological and Psychological Benefits of Young Living Essential Oils*

8672560918_24258c07ec_b

  • Supports and builds the immune system – increases natural T-cells and lymphocytes allowing us to better compete against pathogens.

  • Disrupts specific pathogens (bacterial, viral, mold) but does NOT disrupt our good bacterial flora.

  • Sesquiterpenes, a compound higher in some essential oils (ex Frankincense), increases levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28%. This has implications for learning, hormones, etc.

  • Reduces stress through normalization of blood serum cortisol levels and heart rate.

  • Stimulates olfactory cells to increase their production of olfactory receptor proteins enhancing memory and our ability to learn through association.

  • Reduces inflammation of the body, absorption of citric oxide free radicals. Essential oil blends work together synergistically to decrease inflammation.

  • Increases our “feel good” neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.

  • Assists the body in the release of toxins, cleansing the body, leading to rejuvenation of tissues.

  • Amplifies the efficiency of neural circuitry transmission.

  • Certain oils assist in normalizing blood sugar levels.

  • Improves circulation- dilates blood vessels (assists in moving toxins to liver)

  • Relaxes muscles through anti-spasmodic action.

  • Increases athletic performance according to the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology.

  • Increases stamina and energy.

  • Relieves discomfort (nausea, pain, etc)
