Calling ALL BROTHAS/SISTAS! Who wants to take part in our 7 week SHARE YOUR STORY challenge? With chances to win some pretty cool prizes!!! THE CHALLENGE BEGINS TODAY!

Everyone has a story to tell.

It’s time to become a storyteller. As we know, Young Living is a company that represents Wellness, Purpose, & Abundance. Three amazing pillars that we get to be a part of. Our lives have all intersected with these three pillars in some way. We have testimonies to share, and stories to tell about how YL has impacted our life. What’s your story? How has YL impacted your life? What is your YL testimony? Each of us have a story of Wellness. We have a story of Purpose. We have a story of Abundance. Your story can be told in many different ways. It can be told in broken up segments. Through individual testimonies about oils and products, or even YL experiences, friendships, events. Each of us remembers the day we were forever impacted by Young Living. And impacted again. And again. Tell those stories. Your story will have many parts to it. Many stories within the story. It’s not a story to be told all at once, but over 7 weeks you will have told a very cool story of Wellness, Purpose, & Abundance. Your story can be told in a few sentences, a paragraph, or even a few paragraphs. Always include a picture.

These ingredients synergistically combine to offer one of the key benefits of Thieves Vitality oil: overall wellness and support of a healthy immune system. Additionally, Eucalyptus Radiata Vitality may also help support a healthy respiratory system when taken internally.

  • Add 1–2 drops to a vegetarian gel capsule and take daily or as needed as a dietary supplement.

This power-packed formula combines naturally-derived immune-supporting Ningxia wolfberry polysaccharides with a unique blend of reishi, maitake, and agaricus blazei mushroom powders to deliver powerful antioxidant activity to help reduce the damaging effects of oxidative stress from free radicals. ImmuPro provides zinc and selenium for proper immune function* along with other chelated minerals which emerging science suggests are more easily absorbed by the body. It also delivers melatonin which encourages restful sleep by promoting the body’s natural sleep rhythm. With non-GMO dextrose instead of fructose and more Orange essential oil than ever, this formula delivers more of what you want and less of what you don’t! This delicious fruit-flavored chewable supplement also has the same great wolfberry flavor but with a new crunchy texture.

+ Thieves® Cough Drops: The power of Thieves®and menthol in a cough drop!

Is Young Living organic?

photo 1-2

Young Living is what we call “beyond organic” because they go beyond the requirements of organic labeling. One of Young Living’s biggest priorities is to provide organic products to their members, and they strive to use organic matter in all the steps from growing & processing, all the way to selling.

Young Living cannot place the word ‘organic’ on their labels because they import certain oils from their farms outside of the U.S., and most of these countries do not have organic standards that match the US standards. Because they meet certified organic for various countries, it actually exceeds the USDA organic certification. For example, the Young Living Farm in Ecuador meets organic certification for American, Ecuadorian, AND European organic standards.This is huge! That one farm alone met Organic Standards in three different countries.

In addition, we caution to you be skeptical of oils labeled“organic” as the FDA does not regulate the supplement industry and they do not approve that organic label on essential oils or supplements. You have to know the source of where they actually come from.

BEYOND ORGANIC:

·     Young Living does not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides on any of their our farms. In fact, Gary Young has never bought a farm that has EVER had a history of pesitcides or herbicides on it. (In order for a field to be truly “organic” it has to have been pesticide/herbicide free for 7 years. YL Farms have NEVER had those chemicals, EVER!).

·     Young Living Farms have full time weed pickers. (I’ve had the opportunity to do this job myself at the 2015 Melissa Harvest in Idaho!) At any given time, 3-10 workers will pick weeks by hand because there are no herbicides or pesticdes. Check out Gary Young’s blog to see his standard: http://www.dgaryyoung.com/blog/2013/developing-organic-weed-and-pest-control/

·     To ensure organic soil on their farms, Young Living raises organic worm farms on each property.

·     Every farm is far away from major cities, so Gary Young even tests for environmental pollutants before purchasing land.

·     Young Living uses their own organic seeds from past crops.

·     Young Living will not accept oils, plants or seeds thatdo not meet their strict standard. GMO is NOT acceptable and never has been bought or used.

·     Young Living triple checks every single batch of essential oil to ensure quality and safety. If an oil has certain constituents that do not reach their proper levels, that batch is re-used as the natural pesticide on their farms. (Hence our OOS list!) They refuse to sell a product that doesn’t meet their rigorous standards, and they accept the monetary costs of this sacrifice happily each year. (Each year, YL will actually share this percentage with the public.)

·     You can go to the farms yourself and see for yourself the Seed to Seal process. They have absolutely nothing to hide and are very proud of their establishment!

·     Young Living’s Promise to Families: “Young Living believes that you and your family deserve products that are genuine, free of harmful synthetics, and of unmatched purity. Seed to Seal® is our promise toyou that we are committed to providing just that to your family. From the seeds we plant to the moment we seal our bottles, we focus on naturally occurring and high-quality components to provide you with a pristine final product without compromise.” (source: http://www.seedtoseal.com).

THERAPEUTIC GRADE:

Young Living® recognizes and supports the standards set by AFNOR and ISO for essential oil commerce and we pride ourselves on meeting all AFNOR and ISO standards. In addition to these external regulations, however, Young Living® also sets and exceeds a higher internal standard, built upon the magnitude of our own rigorous QA requirements. This standard is commonly known as “Therapeutic-Grade.”

In order to achieve “Therapeutic Grade” classification, each essential oil must scientifically prove the designation naturally, without manipulation, refinement and or spiking, and meet specific criteria in each of 4 key areas: Plants, Preparation, Purity and Potency.

1. Plants: Young Living® products are produced from quality plants grown in exceptional soil and harvested at the optimal time.

2. Preparation: Honoring a strict commitment to respecting and protecting the time-honored wisdom, tradition and art of distillation, Young Living® makes every effort to preserve “nature’s living energy” in a manner as close to its natural state as possible.

3. Purity: Achieved through the use of quality plants and meticulous preparation, and not through ultra-refinement and sanitization, our finished product is 100% pure. Young Living® essential oils are unadulterated, uncut and totally free of chemicals, pesticides and metals.

4. Potency: A passion for plants and our quality guarantee results in the production of the world’s finest essential oils, and the right phytochemicals at the right amounts, representing unmatched strength and efficacy.

There are oils provided by others, which do meet AFNOR and ISO standards, they do not match Young Living’s® stringent “Therapeutic-Grade” requirements, and could never be valued as in a similar class. Although we pride ourselves on meeting established industry requirements, Young Living sets the bar for quality standards and stands alone in the production of “Therapeutic Grade” essential oils.”

“Our staff subject every incoming lot of essential oils to a battery of tests including gas chromatography, GC/MS, heavy metals analysis, Microbial, Flash Point, Optical Rotation, Refractive Index, and Specific Gravity. Oils that exhibit even the slightest hint of possible tampering or adulteration-even if provided from a trusted supplier-are sent to outside laboratories for even more in-depth dissection using techniques such as carbon isotope analysis. We will even, if there is a question on the smell of an oil, send it out for third party testing to verify it is clean and pure.”

Interview with Oil Sista’s Crown Diamond Hailey Aliff

At only 26 years old co-founders of Oil Sistas Hailey & Jeremy Aliff have already achieved so much! Not only have they reached Young Living’s second highest rank of Crown Diamond, but they have helped to mold a network of business leaders and they have empowered many people to achieve goals in wellness and financial freedom.

In less than 3 years, what started off as an accidental pursuit of the business by simply sharing what they loved with family and friends has become quite an entrepreneurial achievement. With a growing network of over 16,000 people, Oil Sistas Crown Diamonds Hailey and Jeremy Aliff set new goals for helping others achieve the same kinds of success they’ve seen.

We asked Hailey and Jeremy to share a little bit about their path to Crown Diamond.

-As young adults, how has Young Living shaped the way you sought your career?

For one, we didn’t even understand the network marketing model of business. We were like most people in that we were never taught this model of business in school. Jeremy graduated with a degree in business, and all that either of us knew about the network marketing model for business were the common misconceptions. Young Living has really shaped us and taught us that network marketing is a wonderful way to do business.

One of the greatest things about the network marketing model is that it gives us the freedom to pursue our passions and to choose how we spend our time. We get to do business by building relationships with people that we love, and watching them succeed. It truly is a wonderful model of business.

 We look back on where we were and how we have matured because of this company in the past three years. So much growth has happened its amazing. I know that we’ve grown in character, leadership and business skills, and we’ve learned things that that can take some people up to 20 years to achieve in their career. It’s been a tremendous blessing to pour our entrepreneurial spirits into such a viable business model of network marketing and with a product that we are both passionate about!
Having paid off student loans last year, Hailey & Jeremy enjoy the financial freedom of turning business trips into amazing adventures. Here they are enjoying the Galapagos Islands after going to visit Young Living’s Ecuador farm on an all expense paid trip. 

-What were some of the greatest challenges you faced as you started your business?

Growing the team actually came easy for us. While that seems to be many people’s challenge, it wasn’t for us. We weren’t purposely trying to grow a business, we were pursuing a love of oils and natural living, while pursing meaningful relationships with family and friends.
The biggest challenges that we’ve faced have been learning to manage and ride out company growth and changes. Through it all, we’ve always found that when faced with challenges outside of our control, a good attitude always helps everyone to adapt.

-What are your daily habits that make a difference in your business?

Our relationships are very important to us. We work closely with family and friends, and it’s important to keep those relationships intentional, both within the business and outside of it. We have monthly meetings in our living room. These started out with our closest family and best friends, and it continues to grow. We have kept that going ever since and we wouldn’t change it. It’s personal, intimate, and it keeps us going. Always invest time in your relationships, it’s so important.
Setting daily goals helps to keep us on track and stay motivated.  One of us is a big dreamer, and another more of a realist, so setting goals helps us to plot out the steps needed to achieve our dreams.
It’s also important to have a love of learning. Leaders should always be learning. After last year’s “Light the Fire” YL convention, we wanted to know more about the network marketing, so we dove into learning as much as we could about that. Now we are wanting to get back to learning more about the chemistry of these amazing oils. We are committed to always be learning something new, whether it is about the company, the products, leadership, or life, we never want to stop learning.
Even recently we were asked to speak at an event and we were scared. We knew we wanted to grow, and we knew we wanted to develop, so we committed to it. Our confidence in public speaking has definitely grown.

Creating vision boards with family, friends and YL leaders in our living room
 -With all that you have already accomplished, what keeps you motivated to achieve more?
There is a level of stewardship that we have over our business. Not as a money maker, but as a ministry. There are people under us that we care about and want to see succeed.
It’s important to always be thinking about how we are being a witness to people. The bigger we grow, the more of a spotlight we are in, and the more we need to be a good mentors.
We are not motivated by checks and ranks, but by seeing people we care about grow. You don’t see that in other business models. Never in other business can you influence other people’s paychecks. This is a great business model, it’s a biblical model, and on top of all of that, it’s fun! We don’t get burnt out. We love what we do!
