Summer is always an exciting time for us, celebrations and reunions with family and friends. Young Living Grand Convention is something our family and our team, look forward to all year!
This summer threw us a couple of pretty big losses that we have had a hard time coming to terms with, we apologize for our delay on our blog.
The loss of D. Gary Young is huge. He has affected so many lives and influenced so many people, places and ‘plants' across the world, that it’s hard to imagine we can ever fill the void. But, that’s how true "Positive Energy" flows in and around the thing called, “LOVE.” There was so much love in Gary’s heart that he attracted millions of people and left them all feeling better and smelling better!
There is space to fill now, but it is incredibly bright, beautiful and strong. It seems to have Gary’s hand, gently blessing everyone with his Spirit. One of his favorite oils is Highest Potential and you could feel it’s vibration at the Vivint during every general session, The Salt Palace, in every room and workshop, in every attendee, in the restaurants, and even the restrooms as people carried a torch in their hearts for Gary, Mary, Jacob and Joseph and the YL staff! His loss can best be filled by “Our Potential” coming to light.
Since Gary’s memorial service in May, followed by weeks of sorrow, stress and a personal friend also passing, convention actually helped replenish my energy. Knowing I could review any workshop from home in my own time, I was able to shop and support the many creative vendors that offer tools, books and beautiful crafts and jewelry to bring back as gifts for some Rising Stars! I’m excited about some new contests, incentives and action plans I am launching soon.
Stay tuned! Join the Rising Stars Team FaceBook page - if you haven’t already. It is never too early to start planning for Grand Convention 2019, book your tickets and hotel now! May we continue to move forward together- with the vision of stewardship, leadership and success that Gary Young held for everyone involved with Young Living.
Enjoy the summer, keep planting seeds and look forward to an abundant harvest!
Let a picture say a thousand words!
Know that Gary is happiest on a horse, in the mountains, forests, desert or on any farm. This is where his Spirit soared and sought to replenish, if the world got him down. He listened to the wisdom of these places and was able to pass it on to many, many people.
Some people use the saying that when we pass we go "home or to heaven." Gary will be "at the farm!" He will watch over them and the people who work them and visit them. He will continue to connect us to the Spirit of the Earth and Great Spirit, beyond the mountain top. He has had more practice than most people, listening to the wind and carrying the voice of wisdom back to the people.
Let's picture Gary in the saddle, riding across every horizon, seeking answers and bringing more solutions for the healing of the world and the prosperity, all people deserve. His legacy will live on in the words of the Young Living Mission Statement. I have proudly adopted his vision in my role to provide "Wellness, Purpose, Abundance and Education!"
With a piece of my heart.... I will continue to love and honor this man and his vision!

Spring may come early where you are, this is not the case where our corporate office is! We love being in Golden Valley , MN, but let's face it spring comes slow here. We often get teased by an early thaw, only to be plunged into blizzard conditions a few days later.
So, we must find a way to keep our mood sunny!
For many that means a spring break trip somewhere warm- we are blessed to have family in the Bahamas who insist that we visit! We look forward to this so much. There have been years that travel was not an option so we had to create ways to embrace the earliest and often cold days of spring in our northern home.
One we do that is by diffusing essential oils that remind us of springs renewal.
We love these classic Young Living aroma recipes for spring!
My personal favorite is the Hawaiian Sunrise
2 drops Lime
3 drops Sacred Sandelwood
This warm, beachy aroma is certain to brighten your day even if the sun is not shining! Another great way to invite the tropics inside, is to add a few drops of Lime to your Thieves Household cleanser, and to the box of baking soda you keep in the refrigerator.
For more tips on naturally enhancing your LifeStyle & Home order yourself a copy of our latest book" DIY: LifeStyle"
You can order this one and many other books that have been co-authored by Star Moree & Kari Mc Dermott at the following vendors.
The Holiday Season is all about savoring old memories and creating new ones with those we hold most dear. Aromas spark the memories for most of us- the aroma of pine for example immediately brings to mind a Christmas Tree for me.
I used to think of oils like Frankincense and Myrrh in conjunction with the Holiday season too, but they have now become part of my everyday life .
When you really stop to think about how long this Oils of the Ancient Scripture have been around it really is amazing.
Myrrh has long been used for hair and skin and way to hydrate a replenish essential oils. You can create your own simple solution by just adding a few drops to your favorite hair and skin products.
The Holiday Season is also a time of reflection and prayer- we love the aroma of Frankincense to set the mood for quiet times of mindfulness meditation and yoga. Click here to learn more about this highly regarded oi.
Try creating a warm and festive mood by diffusing a combination of Frankincense, Myrrh and Orange oils together!

We love Autumn!! Living in the great state of Minnesota this time of year represents a great abundance of delicious treats! Pretty Pumpkins & Lovely Apples everywhere!
The University of Minnesota Landscape Arborateum is the home of a renowned apple breeding program that has given birth to many new varieties in recent years- a wide variety of colors green, gold and every shade of crimson. The degrees of flavor range from tart to sweet. We love the new SnowSweet! Try them chopped drizzled with warm honey and a couple of drops of Young Livings Cinnamon Bark oil. Add whipped sweet cream and some toasted pecans for a sweet yet healthy desert!
Speaking of Cinnamon Bark oil, it is a fantastic addition to many fall recipes especially those involving apples & pumpkins. Try diffusing it along with a drop or two of Nutmeg Essential oil to give your home the rich aroma of Autumn. Try a drop in your favorite tea or latte soon!
Labor Day was created in the late 19th century as trade and union movements grew. The holiday first honored the American Labor movement with the first parade in New York city in 1887. Oregon was the first state to make it an official holiday. It has been many years since the first Monday in September was set set aside to celebrate Labor Day.
Yes, there are still unions- we are seeing big changes in the way business is conducted, and more entrepreneurs than ever. Young Living has long played a role in helping people choose a healthier way to live and work.
This leads us to another reason we celebrate this holiday- it is the last hurrah before school starts and marks the end of summer for many. So,before we shift seasons-we gather loved ones for an end of summer, picnic, BBQ or weekend at the cabin. We can't think of a better way to savor the last of summer than with some home-made Blueberry - Lavender Ice Cream!
