I just returned from one week in Salt Lake City at the Young Living convention. Wow!
As much as I want to share every single thing I learned in those 5 days of packed information, it would be nearly impossible. And honestly, I’m still trying to process it all. Here’s what I know: Young Living is hands down the most amazing company I have ever had the privilege of getting to know and working for. This is a God-honoring company, filled with the highest integrity, and the bottom line of this company is to bring health and healing into every single home. The founders, Gary & Mary Young, have a heart, passion, and desire to allow people to have the freedom to make the health choices that they want. The education on health from this company is amazing. Education on food, diet, nutrition, medicines, vaccines…just to name a few. I have learned so much in this past week. This is a company that GETS IT! In every way possible.
I attended many different workshops on topics that range from women’s health to autism. I learned the entire history of Young Living and how the CEO and founder Gary Young started this journey as a farmer and continues to be a hardworking farmer throughout all of his Young Living Farms. This is a hardworking, humble man filled with a God-given desire to bring health and healing and wholeness into the world. Young Living is the only company that can offer the seed to seal process, guaranteeing that every single batch of oils has never been adulterated. From the farms that Young Living grows, to the harvesting, distilling, testing, and bottling. Young Living does not compromise their quality of oils and is dedicated to producing the highest quality of essential oils in the world. These oils are truly the closest thing to God’s medicine, in the most purest form. And the science and chemistry behind essential oils is fascinating to say the least. Not all oils are created equal. Nothing compares to Young Living.
Many, many, many new products were released. I had the privilege of touring all of the new products before they were announced. Everything from new oils for pets to new oils for kids. One of my personal favorite new kits is the Kid Scents kit. The new Kid Scents collection is a kit of mild essential oil blends prepared especially for kids. There are 6 blends in the Kid Scents kit. Those are: GeneYus, Owie, Bite Buster, TummyGize, SniffleEase, & SleepyIze. It is a blend of: Lavender, Geranium, Roman Chamomile, Tangerine, Bergamot, Sacred Frankincense, Valerian, & Rue oil. Last night I tried the SleepyIze blend on my 5 children. Let’s just call it the Amazing – Hallelujah Oil!
The testimonies that were shared over the week were mind blowing and I found myself constantly in tears. Crazy how a life changing, life giving, God honoring company can do that to you. Here are just a few that really impacted me.
Watching this panel speak about how Young Living oils have saved them and their patients from PTSD was simply amazing. Standing up is Sargent Major sharing how after 35 years of insomnia, bad dreams, anger, rage, & depression, he is now sleeping through the night and experiencing peace. For the first time ever.
This panel also consisted of doctors and counselors who are using YL oils in their practices to treat PTSD. We heard amazing testimonies (from children with unthinkable pasts, women ready to end their lives, disabled soldiers coming off 40 medications) that were all healed and made whole again through Young Living. These testimonies make you want to get on your knees thanking God for His medicine.
“And on the banks on the river, there will grow all kinds of trees… Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing” –Ezekiel 47:12
PTSD affects 2 million people. Young Living just released the Freedom Sleep and Freedom Release kits of these amazing oils to help with PTSD and any issues that cause anxiety.
Two of my worlds officially collided at convention. I sat in a room of over 9,000 people watching a film telling the story of a beautiful little girl. Smiling, wide eyed, healthy, and happy. We watch her grow up from birth until 1 year. Then (like the same story thats been told thousands upon thousands of times), the little girl goes in for her one year shots and is never the same again. Gone. No more smiles. No more eye contact. Failure to thrive. Started immediately suffering from seizures and eventually diagnosed with epilepsy & autism, aka mitochondrial disfunction (vaccine injury).
It was heartbreaking to watch. With tears streaming down my face, I could not believe I was sitting in a convention center working for a company that truly GETS IT! Young Living is not afraid to tell the truth about vaccines and autism. Nurses, doctors, & scientists dedicated to helping these children.
While at convention, I attended a meeting where the results from the Young Living/Autism Oil Study was released. I was able to see how the little girl from the film and many other children were helped through biomedical treatments that included Young Living essential oils during this study. I am so honored to be a part of this and cannot wait to share this information with the world! Thank God for a world wide company that gets it!!!!
Here I am with one of the Thinking Mom Revolution authors who is finding amazing success with Young Living oils for her daughter’s autism.
Young Living just released the new Reconnect Kit and I highly recommend it for any child on the spectrum.
Events, Parties, & Recognitions Galore
Young Living Convention is fun. From the different events and parties each night. To the black tie events. And the various forms of recognition. I was humbled and honored to receive recognition this year for my rank and for winning the two convention promotions. The best part about recognition is knowing that it’s not really about me. It’s about my entire amazing team of OIL SISTAS and how we all work together to help people find health and healing! I stood on stage thinking of all the hard working, amazing, passionate sistas in my life who helped me get on that stage. And I felt very thankful to be surrounded by an amazing team. My recognition is for all of them!
This year we brought a team of 23 OIL SISTAS. Next year we hope to bring a team of 223 OIL SISTAS :) Heck, I’d love for my entire team to come. Can you imagine 3,223 OIL SISTAS together? One day! It was impossible to get our entire group for a picture. Here’s the group of us that flew together. When a bunch of OIL SISTAS are on a flight together, it smells real good on the plane.
If you are thinking about attending Young Living convention next year, it will be in Dallas, Texas. Just look at how well they feed you. Healthy food and desserts, made with essential oils. If this can’t get you to come, then I don’t know what will :)
Loved, loved, loved spending the week with my Mom and 3 sisters. How lucky am I that I get to “work” for a company with my mom and all of my sisters and all my OIL SISTAS! Here we are all dressed up at Young Living Leadership Gala. The theme was “Live Your Dream”. We sure are :)
My sister Hailey & I put in many, many, many long hours over the last few months working together to build our business. When we arrived at convention, we almost had to pinch ourself that this is now our “job”. God is good! We absolutely love our job! And I love my “business partner”.
I call these two my “GOLDEN GIRLS”. They have the BIGGEST hearts to help others find health and healing. They are smart, passionate, caring, and super fun! I would NOT be where I am with Young Living without these two.
And I get to work and spend time with and be hotel roomies with some of my closest, best friends. Is this really real life? We even brought an oil baby with us. She will stay home next time ;)
Black Tie Gala. Dressing up with my OIL SISTAS was fun!
OIL SISTAS can sure get dressed up :)
So yes, I got dressed up and received awards and recognition. And yes it is nice to be recognized by a company that you love working for. But what I am most excited about is to take off those fancy outfits and black tie gala dresses and get my feet dirty in the red dirt of Uganda, where our team will be leaving for tomorrow to treat the orphans, street & slum children, and families in villages with these amazing, life giving, healing oils. Young Living, through it’s amazing generosity and heart to truly help others, has donated enough oils to treat 500 children.
I honestly can’t thing of anything better to be doing post convention, than actually using Young Living oils on the people that need them most. Serving the least of these with essential oils in a country I love, donated by a company I adore. Thank-you Jesus!
Young Living goes to Uganda….stay tuned!
