Young Living:World Leader in Essential Oils

 

It was Gary’s passion and vision that first brought therapeutic-grade essential oils to America and his experience, dedication, and hard work are the foundation of Young Living’s position as the world leader.

We are proud of the increased global demand and dynamic marketplace we have created for therapeutic-grade essential oils. Such demand inevitably attracts other sellers of essential oils, but they quickly come and go, unwilling to invest the decades of dedication, unrelenting effort and work, and immense resources it takes to understand even a small fraction of what we do.

The bottom line is this: when it comes to essential oils, Young Living reigns supreme. We want to take this opportunity to tell the world why our future has never been brighter.

Young Living Lavender Farms
From the original quarter acre in Gary’s backyard in 1989 to today’s rapidly expanding 4,500 acres on three continents, our farms have provided some of our most valuable knowledge and trade secrets that contribute to our unsurpassed quality.

  • Early Beginnings
    Gary Young was raised ranching and farming, and his love for growing and developing crops has never ceased. He knows instinctively that the finest oil begins with rich soil, where carefully identified seeds are planted and nurtured until harvested and distilled at peak potency.
  • First-Hand Knowledge
    A wise man once said, “It’s easier to go somewhere you haven’t gone than teach something you haven’t done.” For more than twenty years, Gary has worked to develop our world-leading expertise in essential oils. His knowledge was developed first-hand on the farms of world-renowned distillators, which then led to the establishment of our own farms. It is on these farms where Young Living continues to experiment and research the growth, harvesting, and distillation of essential oils.
  • Distillation
    We welcome distributors and visitors alike to visit the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah, and see our entire operation, including Gary’s original proprietary design for low-temperature and low-pressure spiral vortex steam distillation. This exacting method maximizes the extraction of the delicate compounds that often have the most therapeutic effect.. Our facility in Mona, Utah, is the largest privately owned distillery operation for aromatic plants in the world. Our distillery in Ecuador houses the largest single 14,500-liter cooker in North, Central, and South America.
  • Partnerships
    Carefully sharing what we’ve learned with our trusted co-operative growers ensures supply and promotes a free-flow of knowledge and continuous improvement.
  • Sustainable Supply
    As more and more distillators sell their oils to the perfume and food flavoring industry, Young Living Lavender Farms are working to ensure the continued supply of well-known therapeutic-grade oils such as lavender, peppermint, clary sage, and melissa,as well as rare oils like helichrysum, goldenrod, and cistus. With our new farm in Ecuador, we have added new and exclusive oils like Palo Santo, dorado azul, blue eucalyptus, cedaron and ruta. The year-round growing climate of this farm gives us the opportunity to produce many more oils that are in short supply throughout the world. Because of the vast diversity of the ecosystems in Ecuador, we will continue to acquire other farms in different regions, allowing us to grow and produce oils of different climates. The next farm will be in the tops of the Andes mountains where plants such as lavender grow well.

Therapeutic-Grade Quality
Eighteen years ago Gary Young created the term therapeutic-grade. There was not then, and there is not now, an organization other than Young Living Essential Oils qualified to certify an essential oil as therapeutic-grade.

 

  • Focus

No one has more experience than Gary Young growing, harvesting, and distilling essential oils, and certainly no one has more experience using essential oils from household cleaning to everyday health and wellness as well as vast medical applications in a clinical setting. He has led chemists, scientists, botanists, agronomists, and essential oil experts with the single purpose of ensuring that the Young Living standard represents the oils’ optimal natural constituent profile.

 

  • Diligence and Experience
    Anyone can claim their oils are pure and potent, but until they have spent years and years studying the vast library of essential oil science and know how to properly calibrate and operate Gas Chromatograph and Mass Spectrometers specifically for essential oil analysis and how to interpret that analysis, they would likely not even know the difference between a natural or synthetic compound.

    We continually combine our expanding world knowledge with years of experience analyzing thousands of oil batches and the accompanying GC and MS analyses. To further ensure quality, we constantly check our results against trusted third-party laboratories. Especially helpful for us are long-time relationships with prestigious organizations like AFNOR and ISO and the benchmarks they have established. However, we cannot solely rely on them for our internal standard. The fact that we have distilled, analyzed, and conducted research on such a large variety of plants from around the world places our knowledge and standard at an even higher level.

  • Integrity
    We consider the trust our customers place in us an honor and want to educate and protect them from the disappointment of lesser quality oils. Every Young Living essential oil is of the highest quality and therapeutic-grade. We do not sell essential oils that fall short of our standard. Most recently, we rejected half a million dollars of rare helichrysum when it failed to meet optimal potency. Sadly, the oils we reject will often find their way into the marketplace through lesser brands.
  • Research, Development, and Innovation
    Gary continues to expand the vision to include many dedicated product development and scientific professionals and an unmatched global network of essential oil expertise. Young Living invests immense resources and much of its profits back into research and development.
  • Wisdom
    • 1990 Gary lived in southern France where he studied the art of distillation with Henry Viaud, the world’s foremost distillator of essential oils. He also studied with Marcel Espieu who was a fourth-generation lavender distillator and the president of the Lavender Growers Association of France for twenty-two years.
    • 1985 to present Gary established his own laboratory and studied at the world’s foremost essential oil universities and other areas of historical oil significance, including two universities in Turkey, two in France, one in Switzerland, Cairo University in Egypt, and Warick University in England; he also has personally explored the rich oil history in Israel, Jordan, and Oman.
  • Publications
    • 1994 Aromatherapy: the Essential Beginning
    • 1999 Essential Oils Desk Reference was published based largely on Gary Young’s clinical research. The book is now in its fourth edition.
    • 1999 Longevity Secrets
    • 1999 The Truth Behind Growth Hormone
    • 2000 Pregnenolone

    • Young Living has introduced over eighty different single oils to the marketplace and over seventy-five blends. We currently offer the largest essential oil collection in the world.
    • Young Living is the first company to offer nutritional supplements enhanced with essential oils. Gary first began experimenting with oil infusion into supplementation in 1985 in his clinic apothecary. From that came the first oil enhanced supplements of VitaGreen (now MultiGreens™) and Comfortone®. The immense success with these products has brought about the formulation of hundreds of other revolutionary supplements and functional foods and beverages like NingXia Red®, Omega Blue™, MegaCal™, and many more.
    • With products such as Longevity™, Inner Defense™, Digest + Cleanse™, and Para-Free™, Young Living offers the broadest line of nutritional supplements using the purest essential oils available on the market.
    • Young Living offers a complete line of personal care products enhanced with therapeutic-grade essential oils. Available are shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, massage oils, and since 2003, our advanced line of cellular regenerating skin care, A·R·T (Age Refining Technology), has surpassed everything in the natural skincare industry.

Sourcing
Our commitment to unmatched sourcing began in the early days when Gary Young traveled the world and personally inspected the crops, harvesting, and distilling operations of the suppliers of oils he did not grow himself. He would personally smell, touch, and sometimes taste the oils before purchasing. He formed partnerships with trusted suppliers with whom we continue to work today. While Gary can no longer personally test every batch, he has established rigorous requirements and protocols and has personally mentored and trained many of the scientists and professionals who watch over every step of our oil production.

Gary and Mary Young remain intensely passionate and totally immersed in the mission of the company, ensuring and expanding the future supply of therapeutic-grade essential oils. In 2004, at great personal sacrifice, Gary and Mary moved their family to Ecuador to found Young Living’s newest and largest farm. They have made rapid progress and have every intention of supplying a large percentage of key oils through operations there. The first distillation of Palo Santo began in 2005 in a small 150-liter chamber. On April 12, 2008, the first distillation of ruta successfully christened the new 14,500-liter chamber. With this new farm, Young Living will begin to produce many different oils in large quantities.

Education
A naturally gifted and enthusiastic teacher, Gary realized early on that a large part of his stewardship was to share his discoveries and knowledge with the world. He was the first to take the science of essential oils along with their usage and application and put it into an educational format that could be taught, understood, and easily applied by virtually anyone. A large part of why Young Living Essential Oils exists is the vision of taking therapeutic-grade essential oils to every home. We are accomplishing this by empowering and inspiring a volunteer army of caring, committed, and bold distributors. More than 250,000 strong, they are largely responsible for the current re-emergence of therapeutic-grade essential oils in the marketplace. However, we are not simply in the business of selling oils. We are in the business of teaching and mentoring people to a better, healthier, and more abundant lifestyle.

Humanitarian Efforts
Gary and Mary Young firmly believe that a vital key to Young Living’s continued success is our willingness to give back. They believe the more we give, the more we grow, which constantly inspires us to share the gifts and abundance we receive by serving and helping others.

  • In 2004, Gary and several Young Living employees traveled to Copper Canyon in Durango, Mexico, to build two schools and put in a water system for a remote Tarahumara Indian village.
  • Young Living founded the D. Gary Young Foundation: Young Living Outreach, which supports philanthropic causes worldwide. Here are just a few:
    • Cinterandes Foundation: Gary donates time and resources to travel with a volunteer team of six or seven medical doctors and staff into the jungle with the mobile surgical truck bringing health care to those who can’t afford it and where help is not available. Young Living funded a complete medical project for six villages in the Andes to establish six rural clinics.
    • Chongon School Project: Because of the deplorable condition of the small community school near the Young Living farm, we bought a small parcel of land on which we could build a new school funded by donations from Young Living distributors. It is expected to be finished in May this year.
    • Young Living Essential Oils donates precious oils to bring relief to various groups in need, including fire fighters who worked in the 9/11 disaster, and Rising Star Outreach, a mobile leprosy clinic in India.
    • You Can “Thrive” Foundation: A free clinic for breast cancer patients who cannot afford treatment. The medical staff donates their time and Young Living donates oils and nutritional products for the patients.
    • Urban Zen Foundation: Young Living donates oils and expertise as together we seek to integrate holistic health care into mainstream medicine with this not-for-profit philanthropic organization founded by fashion designer Donna Karan.
  • Honoring the Past, Embracing the Future
    It is not easy for a company to grow, expand, and reach out as Young Living has and not lose the heart, soul, and personality that gave it life—but Young Living is achieving this. With estimated worldwide revenues exceeding $120 million in 2008, Young Living is a financially stable company with ever increasing momentum. We now have offices in Kimbolton, England; Brisbane, Australia; Tokyo, Japan, and Guayaquil, Ecuador; and ship to over thirty-eight countries worldwide. Young Living offers a bright future to our current and prospective Independent Distributors and our team of more than 330 corporate employees. Young Living has the resources, expertise, and leadership needed to move forward. We are excited about the large number of employees and distributors who are joining us. We believe there has never been a better time to find long-term wellness, fulfillment, and opportunity at Young Living. We have a deep and a sincere respect for our simple beginning from where we have come, a strong appreciation and sense of stewardship for what we have, and a vision of what we will surely become.

Boot Camp

The challenges we face in life bring with them badges of honor that we earn through our response to them.  An unchallenged life is one lived on the sidelines of experience where little growth takes place. While it may seem on the surface that “God is picking on me” it is in fact just the opposite. For those that have chosen the higher route, it is an accelerated course of soul development that the experiencer has chosen to bring them in closer alignment with their soul purpose. It is an elite core of service that has been chosen that test the limits of strength and endurance to create a body of Light energy that is capable of withstanding whatever may come his/her way. It is boot camp on a higher dimension.

 

Now there is a certain sense of accomplishment when one has moved through the valley of darkness and emerged stronger and wiser. These are the comrades you wish to have beside you in the Light of experience.  More and more are being called into association who have been tempered by life’s lessons and have emerged stronger but also more resilient and flexible as different muscles and abilities are called for by the situation at hand. Is your ability to adapt and move forward unflinchingly into the challenges of life that signals your mastery of the earth school.

 

Uncertain times call for the leaders of tomorrow that exhibit this new kind of responses. It is not enough to merely survive the lessons of life. It is necessary to be both aware but also tuned in to the evolving process of growth and understanding that is taking place. It is operating in an atmosphere of limitless possibilities that allow you to move outside the box of the status quo and find new avenues for exploration and understanding. Who do you wish to be your guidance in uncharted waters? We might suggest that those who can filter out the chatter and focus in on the higher agenda that is playing out will have a leg up when the chaos increases.

 

Now your comrades in arms that you have chosen to be part of this army of Light will also have made their own journey. Imagine moving in tandem with others who you know to be operating on this higher level of understanding and awareness and who have mastered the lessons of the personality in the earth school. Talk about powerful!

 

This is what is required if you are to transcend the dimensional shift. Few have made the leap of understanding and commitment to be part of this elite squad. This is OCS for the Light Brigade. Only those who have graduated from the “school of hard knocks” will be able to appreciate what is happening and be tuned in and ready to summon forth this knowledge at a moments notice to address the rapidly evolving world around them. 

 

While this is all interesting as far as background information, we know that you are asking how does this concern me in this time and this place. We might suggest that this transformation has already begun.  Many of you are beginning to emerge from the firestorm of earthly challenges.  You are looking about to see who is still standing  and where to go next. You might be well advised to seek your answers not from the mental but from the emotional body. The ego is master in the mental realms. What is needed now is to strengthen your ability to tune into your gut feelings and to feel where your soul is leading you. 

 

There is no right or wrong decision. The byword is Joy. What route gives you the most Joy?  This is the well that you will come back to time and time again to fill your container to overflowing. You can never experience too much Joy. What areas of your life have had all they Joy sucked out of them?  How can you transform them into the higher paradigm or is it time to abandon that phase of your journey and move on?  When the final train has left the station where will you go that will lead you to a Joyous future?  You have been through the fires of temperament. Now is time to break ground in the new garden of experience.  It is time…

What You Should Know About Common Table Salt

Salt is essential for life — you cannot live without it. However, most people simply don’t realize that there are enormous differences between the standard, refined table and cooking salt most of you are accustomed to using and natural health-promoting salt.

These differences can have a major impact on your staying healthy.

If you want your body to function properly, you need holistic salt complete with all-natural elements. Today’s common table salt has nothing in common with natural salt.

Your table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine. Dried at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, the excessive heat alters the natural chemical structure of the salt.

The Typical Table And Cooking Salt In Your Grocery Store Has Been “Chemically Cleaned”

What remains after typical salt is “chemically cleaned” is sodium chloride — an unnatural chemical form of salt that your body recognizes as something completely foreign. This form of salt is in almost every preserved product that you eat. Therefore, when you add more salt to your already salted food, your body receives more salt than it can dispose of.

This is important as over 90% of the money that people spend on food is for processed food.

Typical table salt crystals are totally isolated from each other. In order for your body to try to metabolize table salt crystals, it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy.

Inorganic sodium chloride can keep you from an ideal fluid balance and can overburden your elimination systems.

When your body tries to isolate the excess salt you typically expose it to, water molecules must surround the sodium chloride to break them up into sodium and chloride ions in order to help your body neutralize them. To accomplish this, water is taken from your cells in order to neutralize the unnatural sodium chloride.

This results in a less-than-ideal fluid balance in the cells.

You Are Losing Precious Intracellular Water When You Eat Normal Table Salt

For every gram of sodium chloride that your body cannot get rid of, your body uses 23 times the amount of cell water to neutralize the salt. Eating common table salt causes excess fluid in your body tissue, which can contribute to:

  • Unsightly cellulite
  • Rheumatism, arthritis and gout
  • Kidney and gall bladder stones

When you consider that the average person consumes 4,000 to 6,000 mg of sodium chloride each day, and heavy users can ingest as much as 10,000 mg in a day, it is clear that this is a serious and pervasive issue.

So Why Are Many People Still Using Table Salt?

Because well over 90% of the world’s salt is being used directly for industrial purposes that require pure sodium chloride. The remaining percentage is used for preserving processes and ends up on your kitchen table.

With the use of rigorous advertising, the salt industry is successful in convincing you there are actually health advantages to adding potentially toxic iodine and fluoride to salt. In addition, your table salt very often contains potentially dangerous preservatives. Calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, and aluminum hydroxide are often added to improve the ability of table salt to pour. Aluminum is a light alloy that deposits into your brain — a potential cause of Alzheimer’s disease.

Get Salt as Nature Intended It — Pure Himalayan Crystal Salt

With chemical dumping and toxic oil spills polluting the oceans at an alarming rate, most of today’s sea salt is not nearly as pure as it used to be. Himalayan Crystal Salt is pure salt that is mined and washed by hand — with zero environmental pollutants.ORDER NOW

Today’s table and cooking salt is void of the vital trace minerals that make this Himalayan crystal salt so precious. Crystal salt has spent over 250 million years maturing under extreme tectonic pressure, far away from exposure to impurities.

The salt’s unique structure also stores vibrational energy. All of the crystal salt’s inherent minerals and trace elements are available in colloidal form — meaning they are so small your cells can readily absorb them.

The Crystal Salt from the Himalayas does not burden your body as other salts do. It is very difficult for your body to absorb too much crystal salt since there are powerful and effective feedback loops that regulate this process. Natural crystal salt always promotes a healthy balance and does not contribute to high blood pressure like typical table salt.

Crystal Salt’s array of elements forms a compound in which each molecule is inter-connected. The connectedness allows the vibrational component of the 84 trace elements present in the salt to be in harmony with each other and adds to the ability to promote a healthy balance. When it comes to the power of natural salt, nothing compares to Himalayan Crystal Salt. Here’s why:

  • It is the highest grade of natural salt.
  • Under an electron microscope, crystal salt has a perfect crystalline structure.
  • It is mined by hand and hand-washed.
  • Crystal salt is immune to electromagnetic fields
  • Crystal Salt contains no environmental pollutants.
  • There is no limited shelf life and no need for silica packets to prevent clumping.

Key Minerals in Himalayan Crystal Salt Promote a Healthy Balance in Your Body

Himalayan Crystal Salt is salt in its native form, with all its vibrational energy intact and it helps promote a healthy balance in your body. Promoting balanced electrolytes helps to keep your body in homeostasis — the balance of chemicals that is conducive to the body’s function.

The renowned Frezenius Institute in Europe analyzed the Himalayan Crystal Salt and proved that it has an amazing array of important trace minerals and elements including potassium, calcium and magnesium that help promote a healthy balance by maintaining fluids and replenishing your supply of electrolytes whenever you sweat heavily. (This salt does not supply iodide, a necessary nutrient.)

Himalayan Salt vs. Sea Salt and Rock Salt: A Crystal Comparison

Many people believe sea salt is a healthy alternative to table salt, but this is no longer the case. The oceans are being used as dumping grounds for harmful toxic poisons like mercury, PCBs and dioxin. Reports of oil spills polluting the sea are becoming more frequent. With some 89% of all the sea salt producers now refining their salt, today’s sea salt simply isn’t as healthy as it used to be.

How’s Your Thyroid Today?

This is quite long, but not long enough if you are dealing with an imperfect thyroid

… read on, excerpted from the Essential Oils Desk Reference.

Bolded names of essential oils and other supplements are all products of

Young Living Essential Oils, organic and therapeutic grade.

 

THYROID

(See Also: Hyperthyroid (Graves Disease), Hypothyroid)

How to Measure Thyroid Function

Located at the base of the neck just below the Adam´s apple, the thyroid is
the energy gland of the human body.  It produces T3 and T4 thyroid hormones that control the body´s metabolism. The thyroid also controls other vital functions such as digestion, circulation, immune function, hormone balance and emotions.

The thyroid gland is actually controlled by the pituitary gland which
signals the thyroid when to produce thyroid hormone. The pituitary gland, in turn,
is directed by chemical signals sent by the hypothalamus gland which monitors
hormone levels in the blood stream.

A lack of thyroid hormone does not necessarily mean that the thyroid is not
functioning properly (although in many cases, this may be the case).  In some
instances, the pituitary may be malfunctioning because of its failure to
release sufficient TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) to spur the thyroid to make
thyroid hormone.

Other cases of thyroid hormone deficiency may be due to the hypothalamus
failing to release sufficient TRH (thyrotropin releasing hormone).

In cases where thyroid hormone deficiency is caused by a malfunctioning
pituitary or hypothalamus, better results may be achieved by using supplements or
essential oils that stimulate the pituitary or hypothalamus, such as Ultra
Young or Cedarwood.

Thyroid Function, How to Measure

To check your thyroid function, use the Barnes Basal Temperature Test:

o Shake a thermometer and leave on the bedside table just prior to going to
sleep.

o Immediately upon awakening in the morning, insert the thermometer snugly
in the armpit and lie quietly for ten minutes.

o Repeat test for two consecutive days and once more after a week.

o The temperature should range between 97.8º to 98.2° F (36.5 to 36.7° C).
Temperatures below 97.8º indicate hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) and
temperatures above 98.2 indicate hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid function)
which is far rarer.

NOTE: Women will obtain the most accurate readings when not menstruating or
on the second and third day of menstruation.

People with type A blood have more of a tendency to have weak thyroid
function.

Watch Out for Chlorine

Since chlorine shuts down thyroid function by preventing absorption of
iodine and the amino acid tyrosine, drink chlorine-free water. To remove chlorine
from water, it should either be distilled or passed through activated carbon
filters. As an alternative, you can let tap water stand unsealed and add a
drop of

lemon, peppermint, or spearmint.

 

Thyroid Imbalance

 

 

HYPOTHYROID

(See Also: Hypoglycemia).

Those who do not produce enough thyroid hormone have a condition known as
hypo-thyroidism. Approximately 40 percent of the U.S. population suffers from
this disorder, and these people tend to also suffer hypoglycemia (low blood
sugar).

The following symptoms occur:

o Fatigue
o Yeast infections (Candida)
o Lack of energy
o Reduced immune function
o Poor resistance to disease
o Recurring infections

Single Oils:

 

Lemongrass with myrtle, peppermint, spearmint, myrrh, or clove. 

o Lemongrass with EndoFlex.

Place 1 drop of EndoFlex on back (top) of large toes.
Supplements: Thyromin and MultiGreen.

 

How to Use Thyromin

Thyromin is a supplement designed to feed and help rebuild the thyroid.
Thyromin is best taken at bedtime. Start with 1 capsule immediately before
going to sleep. Check your temperature in the morning. If the Basal
Temperature indicates no improvement, add 1 capsule in the morning.
If still no significant change, go to 2 capsules at night and 1 in the
morning. Use this stepped approach until temperature is in correct range.
VitaGreen enhances the effect of the Thyromin and may be helpful to take along with it.

NOTE: Take half of the total amount of Thyromin at night and half in the
morning.

Hypoglycemia

Hypoglycemia may also be caused by low thyroid function (See Thyroid).
Excessive consumption of sugar or honey will also cause reactive
hypoglycemia, in which a rapid rise in blood sugar is followed by abnormally low levels.
In some cases, hypoglycemia may be a precursor to candida, allergies,
chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, and chemical sensitivities.
Signs of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) include:

o Fatigue, drowsiness, and sleepiness after meals.
o Headache or dizziness if periods between meals are too long.
o Craving for sweets.
o Allergic reaction to foods.
o Palpitations, tremors, sweats, rapid heart beat.

o Inattentiveness, mood swings, irritability, anxiety, nervousness,
inability to cope with stress, and feelings of emotional depression,

o Lack of motivation, discipline, and creativity.

o Hunger that cannot be satisfied.

Often people with some of these symptoms are misdiagnosed as suffering
either chronic fatigue or neurosis. Instead, they may be hypoglycemic. To treat
