Another Successful Winter Harvest Concludes

Product Kit

The Young Living Winter Harvest is in its final week and will conclude on February 2. Combining old-fashioned logging and sustainable forestry practices with modern distillation and testing techniques, teams of volunteers and staff are harvesting and distilling the aromatic wood and needles of balsam fir, blue spruce, Western red cedar, and pine trees on our St. Maries and Highland Flats farms to produce the world's highest-quality essential oils.

Led by Young Living founder and CEO D. Gary Young, distributors, staff, and our award-winning draft horse teams have braved the harsh winter conditions to cut, transport, chip, and distill pure essential oils from the harvested trees. Though demanding, participants describe the experience as one of the most rewarding and fulfilling they have ever enjoyed with Young Living.

The farms, located in St. Maries and Highland Flats, Idaho, are an integral part of Young Living's Seed to Seal® process. This unique process ensures that every step of essential oil production is closely controlled, from the seeds sown to harvesting, testing, and bottling. A newly built lab at the St. Marie's farm is equipped with a state-of-the-art, high resolution gas chromatograph, which allows the purity of oil to be tested on the spot quickly and accurately.

In the spring, volunteers will return to the farms to plant seedlings and participate in our annual reforestation effort.

Winter Ordering: What You Need to Know

Product Kit

With the arrival of cold winter weather for many Young Living members, please remember that low temperatures may affect NingXia Red® during shipping. If you live in a cold climate, consider upgrading your shipping method to at least FedEx 3Day shipping to protect your order of NingXia Red from freezing, breaking, or leaking. We also recommend ordering NingXia Red singles, which are back in stock, will not be affected by cold temperatures, and now have full PV!

Low temperatures will not damage or freeze your essential oils, but they may change their appearance. For example, rose oil may thicken or gel when it gets too cold; placing the bottle under warm water or rolling it in your hands will help the oil to liquefy again. Citrus oils may become cloudy when cold, but this occurs naturally and you may continue to use them as usual.

Unfortunately, if your products arrive leaking, broken, or cracked due to weather or temperature, Young Living is not responsible and cannot replace the products. To upgrade your NingXia Red shipping method or to place an order, visit Virtual Office or contact Customer Care at 1.800.371.3515 today!

Building Your Business: A Personal Touch

When you ask distributors who are no longer involved with Young Living why they left, the answer is often that they felt unsupported, so they gradually drifted away. The most successful business organizations are those that have leaders who support and regularly communicate with their team. These are the organizations full of people unwaveringly determined to find wellness, purpose, and abundance through Young Living. You can achieve this kind of collective dedication and success when you share information, tips, updates, and encouragement with your downline.

Are you aware of an exciting Young Living event taking place near someone in your organization? Let them know about it! Have you discovered an effective, new strategy for sharing the Young Living opportunity with others? Share what you have learned! Has someone in your team advanced in rank? Call to congratulate them! Do you know someone who could benefit from one of our exciting enrollment promotions? Show them how to take advantage of limited-time enrollment or reactivation perks! There are hundreds of ways you can share valuable information and show those in your organization that you care. Make a habit of communicating and watch your business—and team spirit—grow!
