If you attended the 2014 International Grand Convention, chances are you got to sample our popular, limited-edition Exotic Oils Collection.
The Exotic Oils Collection is a culmination of Gary Young’s efforts to scour the planet for unique and cutting-edge essential oil discoveries. The collection offers a window to locations all over the globe and includes an exotic passport with photos, scientific information, and everyday uses for each oil.

Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young has always had a passion for discovery, and for the past 20 years, he has used that passion to make Young Living the world’s leading authority on essential oils. This month we celebrate being the last word on essential oils, from our proprietary Seed to Seal process, creating a body of groundbreaking research and scholarship, and hand-selecting respected professionals for the Scientific Advisory Council. Keep reading to learn more!
No other company works as hard as we do to produce the purest, most authentic essential oils in the world.

Besides ongoing discovery efforts, we continuously research the wellness potential of essential oils. We offer many resources for learning about this research, including our annual conventions, Young Living Introductory Meetings, and other Young Living events where we invite you to get all the most current essential oil information!
The Young Living Scientific Advisory Council offers valuable insight into the development of our products. This professional organization comprises prominent scientific professionals from around the globe, uniting years of experience in natural products.

A perennial favorite essential oil, Peppermint’s invigorating, minty aroma can refresh the mind. Its high menthol content creates a powerful cooling effect when applied topically, and it can be used to comfort tired muscles after physical activity.

LBrianté™ is one of my favorite new Young Living products! Just yesterday I was frantically searching the far corners of my purse for that velvety red bag so I could apply the Pink Lip Gloss to my lips and Amoressence™ essential oil scent to my wrists before a meeting. Every time I use LBrianté, I feel ready for anything.
Here are my top five reasons for taking LBrianté everywhere I go:
- I love having two products in one package. With a lip gloss on one side and a fragrant essential oil blend on the other, I can freshen my look in a matter of seconds.
- LBrianté has interchangeable containers. Normally, Amoressence comes with the red gloss, but since I was wearing pastel yesterday, I changed the red gloss for pink. Mixing and matching glosses and fragrances gives me nine different options!
- The lip gloss contains a hint of spearmint essential oil for a sweet, minty scent and refreshing sensation on the lips.
- The fabulous velvet bag LBrianté comes in not only protects the glass bottle of essential oil from breaking, but it also makes it easier to find at the bottom of my purse.
- LBrianté is all natural. Unlike other lip products, L’Briante’s safe and natural formula means that I don’t have to worry about my daughter using it. I love the peace of mind that gives me!
Please feel free to share your top reasons for using Young Living beauty products, especially LBrianté!

One of the easiest and most popular ways to reap the benefits found in our pure, effective essential oils is through diffusing. The refreshing aromas of essential oils create a positive, uplifting atmosphere in any home or office, and our line of diffusers is designed to make it easy to fill any space with the scents of your favorite essential oils and blends.
If you want to reap the most intensive benefits from essential oils, check out our newest diffuser, the AromaLux™ Atomizing Diffuser. This Young Living exclusive turns undiluted essential oil into microsized particles that fill a space quickly, no water required! The AromaLux was designed by D. Gary Young and took two years to perfect. It’s only available through Young Living and includes the widest array of controls and adjustability offered in any of our diffusers.
The vapor volume control lets you decide how much essential oil vapor output you want: a low volume to scent a room and conserve oil, a high volume to deliver a powerful stream of pure essential oil vapor for maximum benefits, or anywhere in between!
The master timer allows you to choose how long your AromaLux will run before it automatically shuts off, from 1 to 10 hours.
The diffusion run and diffusion pause timers allow you to customize intervals of diffusion up to 20 minutes. For example, you can set your AromaLux to diffuse for 15 minutes, then pause for 7, then begin the interval again for as long as you have set the master timer to run.
Finally, the light control allows you to choose between six light display options: white, red, green, blue, a cycle of all the colors, or off. These color settings can be used to complement the positive energy-enhancing properties of the AromaLux’s pyramid design.
What’s your favorite diffusion method? Have you tried the AromaLux? Tell us what oils or blends you use and how you diffuse them in the comments below!
Fascination with beauty and the search for the Fountain of Youth is as old as time. Women everywhere, of all ages, seek solutions to complexion discoloration, whether it’s brought on by the natural process of aging, sun exposure, or other causes. Research suggests that uneven and dull skin tone contribute even more to the appearance of aging than wrinkles!
At Young Living’s 2014 International Grand Convention, we introduced the latest addition to our A·R·T®—Age Refining Technology—line: Sheerlumé™ Brightening Cream!
Sheerlumé contains a proprietary blend of Sacred Frankincense™, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Clove, and other powerful essential oils, as well as third-party tested alpine plant extracts that protect the skin from external stressors that advance the appearance of aging. Use Sheerlumé daily to unveil a more radiant, flawless-looking complexion.
