Admission costs , and with it, you gain access to many of the perks you’d normally enjoy when attending the convention. These LEADERSHIP CORNER Stay aware and sensitive to the people around you and then get out of your own way Diamond leader Lauren Crews Dow never set out to start her own business with Young Living. Only seven years ago, she was a stay-at-home mom and a U.S. Army wife. “A GED is the highest certificate of education I have,” she says. “I mention this because I have met many who feel like they’re not smart enough or equipped enough to be successful at this. A piece of paper is not a measure of your worth. You can do this if you just get out of your own way and allow God to use the gifts He has given you.” A friend introduced Young Living to Lauren, who recognized that something in her life had to change. “My home was one of those toxic homes with harsh, chemical-filled cleaners all over the place. I was completely clueless about all the natural ways to live life better.” As an Army wife, Lauren has moved four times since joining Young Living. “That’s four new cities where I didn’t know anyone, but I woke up every day intent on helping someone,” she says. To make her goals happen, Lauren says she stays aware of her surroundings and actively seeks out opportunities to share her passion. “Wherever I go, whether it’s to the grocery store or the gym or a restaurant, I don’t just walk past people. I’m always on the lookout for those who my life and story can touch. Young Living isn’t something we should keep to ourselves. Even if you don’t actively work the business side of Young Living, you can still share your favorite products with your best friend.” Lauren warns that there will always be hard days when you have to perks include the ability to purchase all of the exclusive convention offers, first pick of the newly launched products,* and the opportunity to hear from our phenomenal speakers. Plus, your first convention order will qualify you for a special gift, compliments of Young Living.** The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation’s annual Run for a Cause 5K is also virtual this year, taking place on Saturday, June 19. You can rest easy knowing that, like all donations to the Foundation, 100 percent of your registration fee for our superhero-themed virtual 5K will go directly to protecting the world’s youth and empowering people around the globe. Anyone who’s been to our previous conventions knows that this event is always full of celebrations, exciting announcements, training, inspiration, and more! Make sure you’re registered and ready to capture every exciting moment, because you won’t want to miss what we’ve planned to make 2021 a year to remember. Register today at: YoungLiving.com/2021convention *Certain products may not be available in all markets **All registration fees include a gift that will be included in your first convention order. You must place an order to receive the registration gift. Not all markets can receive the registration gift. Diamond Leader Lauren Crews Dow reconnect with your two whys: why you joined Young Living and why you’re building your business. “I take ownership of my whys,” she explains. “I walk over to my vision board and start praying over my heart and mind. I look at all my visions, my husband’s visions, and my children’s visions, and I imagine them all coming true. It’s during those times I’m reminded that the only limit is me.” FINCA BOTANICA DISTILLED Creating liquid gold in Ecuador In the heat of Ecuador, Nicolas Chong and his team of 50 harvesters walk among the 320 acres of ylang ylang trees at the Young Living Finca Botanica Farm and Distillery. We spoke with Nicolas about what an average day at Finca Botanica is really like. Here’s what he had to say: “The days are hot, as high as 87 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius), the air is thick with humidity, and for part of the year, powerful rainstorms roll in and out while the team handpicks ylang ylang flowers. Typically, we harvest year-round, but our high volume harvest months are from June to January." With baskets strapped onto their backs, the team harvests only the flowers with all six petals in bloom and a red tint around their green center, leaving the younger flowers time to grow for later batches of essential oil. Only properly matured flowers produce a high-quality yield during distillation. “Primo Chavez, who has over 10 years of experience with Young Living, then weighs the baskets and records the results as the flowers are dropped off in the distillery. The flowers are then loaded into one of the 14 cookers in the distillery. Each cooker holds 50 kilos of flowers, and they will steam, on average, for six hours. “The steam captures the essence of the PAGE 2 petals as it rises from the bottom of the cooker to a tube on the top. As the ylang ylang steam cools in the tube, it condenses and exits the cooker into a beaker. Here, the oil and water separate. The water sinks to the bottom, and the pure Ylang Ylang essential oil rises to the surface in wobbly, golden-tinged bubbles. “A sample from each batch of Ylang Ylang oil is collected and taken to a lab technician, where the specs are compared against Young Living’s established, stringent Seed to Seal® quality commitment for our Ylang Ylang essential oil. After the exacting demands of organic cultivation practices, protecting soil health, and carefully hand-harvesting, these specifications are the final proof that the farm team has met Young Living’s Seed to Seal quality commitment. “Once testing is complete, the Ylang Ylang essential oil is stored in foodgrade stainless steel canisters and shipped to the United States for bottling and distribution.” It is the team’s dedication at every stage of cultivating, harvesting, distilling, and testing that provides Young Living members the only Seed to Seal premium Ylang Ylang in the world, a rich, golden oil to enrich your space and infuse it with a touch of sun.
