Sheerlumé™—Our Living “Young” Elixir

Posted on July 21st, 2014 | 2 comments

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.

Help Us Celebrate Young Living’s Biggest Anniversary

Posted on February 13th, 2014 | 3 comments

This year is Young Living’s 20-year anniversary, and we plan to spend all year celebrating! From the biggest convention we have ever held to a full year of giveaways and promotions, plus a new company highlight every month, 2014 is going to be a Young Living celebration like you’ve never experienced!

Thanks to both our members’ dedication and Founder and CEO D. Gary Young’s tireless passion for creating pure essential oils, we have been able to share our priceless message with the world for 20 years and counting. We invite you celebrate our history with us and become a part of our future. Be sure to visit YoungLiving.com/20Years to learn more—and leave your thoughts in the comments!

To kick off this exciting anniversary year, here are some fun facts about Young Living that you may not have known:

  • Our new essential oil distillery at the Highland Flats Tree Farm is the world’s first fully automated distillery, as well as one of its largest. This cutting-edge facility will help make the process of producing essential oils such as Idaho Blue Spruce significantly faster and more efficient.
  • 2013 was Young Living’s biggest year in two decades of business. We saw the launch of three international markets and shattered even our most optimistic sales and membership projections for the year!
  • In 1997 Gary developed Thieves®, an essential oil blend that has been studied for its potential activity against airborne microbes.

Relax Body and Mind with Our February Promotions

Posted on February 1st, 2014 | one comment

If you’re still going strong with your New Year’s resolutions to get fit or are ready to hit the gym before summer rolls around, take advantage of a new promotion guaranteed to help you stick with your goals! This February, earn a great essential oil two pack that is ideal for comforting muscles after a workout or to use as you need it throughout your busy day!

Reach 300 PV with your February order and receive a reward pack worth at least $134.15 that includes a 5-ml Idaho Blue Spruce and a 15-ml Copaiba essential oil! You will also receive a free $15 product credit and 10 percent back in Essential Rewards points on your order!

Here are the details:

Idaho Blue Spruce: Produced exclusively on our own St. Maries farm, Idaho Blue Spruce is one of our most popular essential oils and is a symbol of our 20-year commitment to pure, authentic essential oils. Diffuse this powerful oil to create a sense of well-being and balance, wear it as an empowering fragrance, or dilute and apply it where needed post-workout.

Copaiba: Unlike other essential oils, Copaiba is tapped directly from the tree rather than distilled. Used widely in Amazonian folk medicine, Copaiba offers a wealth of benefits—from supporting a healthy digestive and respiratory system to encouraging a glowing complexion. Apply to muscles after a workout or take it internally to support overall wellness.*

$15 Product Credit: Use this $15 just like cash toward any order of any Young Living product! Anticipate that this special credit will appear on your account in mid-March, which you may then apply to your order for a $15 discount.

10 Percent Back: For every order over 300 PV in February, you will receive 10 percent of your order back in Essential Rewards points! This offer applies to both Essential Rewards and standard orders and is on top of any points you may earn from your regular monthly Essential Rewards order, up to 50 points per order. To receive these points, which can be used toward free products, you must be enrolled in our Essential Rewards program. It’s our way of thanking you for your loyalty. These points will be available to use on or before March 15.

Coping With Flu Season Using Young Living Products

Posted on November 4th, 2013 | 3 comments

With all of the uncertainty in the world today, one thing you can always count on is flu season. Every year, as the days become shorter and colder, more and more individuals come down with flu-like symptoms. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, flu season can start as early as October, with its peak coming in January and February.

The CDC recommends the following six steps for preventing the flu:

  1. Avoid close contact with others.
  2. Stay home when you are sick.
  3. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
  4. Clean your hands.
  5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  6. Practice other good health habits.

Notice how the first five recommendations are straight forward, while the last is a little vague. I would like to recommend a few ways to “practice other good health habits” using Young Living products.

  1. Keep germs out—I keep a bottle of Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier by the front door. Anyone who enters my home quickly learns that they need to sanitize upon entering.
  2. Protect from the inside out—Although not common knowledge, the digestive system is one of the body’s first lines of defense against disease. Using Young Living’s Life 5probiotic supports a healthy immune system by delivering billions of beneficial bacteria strains. Inner Defense and NingXia Red® are also great options for those looking to support the immune system with pure essential oils.
  3. Overcoming sickness—If you are unable to avoid getting sick, may I suggest ImmuPro and Thieves essential oil blend. I like to apply Thieves to the soles of my feet and add ImmuPro to my nightly regimen to provide my body the support it needs.

Although not rocket science, I’ve found that these natural suggestions help protect my home during the dreaded flu season. Please share your secrets to staying healthy during this time of year!

Build Your Business with the Young Living Facebook Service

Posted on August 8th, 2013 | 6 comments

More and more Young Living distributors are discovering how social media can help build and strengthen their businesses and how easy establishing an informative, relevant, and supportive online presence can be with our new Facebook service! This service, launched at the 2013 International Grand Convention, offers:

  • Engaging, Young Living-related content posted automatically to your Facebook business page three times per week
  • Three content-rich tabs, each of which provides a link that enables your Facebook fans to sign up as a distributor or customer in your organization
  • A choice of many professionally created, Young Living-branded cover photos

The service can add these exciting features to an existing Facebook page or implement them on a new Facebook page for only $59.95 annually. To sign up, visit youngliving.com/facebookservice. There, you will find a brief video that will explain the service in detail.

Here is an example of what your Facebook page will look like with the new service:

 

 

What our Members are Saying
Over 1,000 people have signed up for the service so far, and it has received rave reviews. Here are a few comments we have received by e-mail and on Facebook:

“The service has been phenomenal!  It has grown my fan base and has created more free time for me to focus on team coaching rather than finding, reading, and posting content!” – Melissa Poepping, Young Living Gold

“I love it! You have taken a load off of me! Thanks!  Now I have time to tweet! LOL thanks for showing me that, too!” – Helen Shaw, Young Living Distributor

“[It is the] easiest way to boost your business efficiency! And the price is right, too! Thank you, Young Living!” – Devin Cote Bourland, Young Living Star

“I LOVE IT! I have been sharing my page and posting everywhere for others to see and sign up! Got a few into it already!” – Kateeri O’Brien, Young Living Distributor

Facebook Service Tips
If you have already signed up for the Facebook Service, here are a few tips to attract more fans and engagement on your page:

  • For your profile picture, use a photo of yourself or your business logo. This will make your page more professional-looking to current and prospective fans.
  • Make the name of your page unique, so it will stand out. Be sure to use the name of your business or a name that will identify you as a Young Living distributor. For example, you could use something like, “John Smith, Young Living Distributor.” Please do not name your page simply “Young Living” or “Young Living Essential Oils.”  This can make it harder for people to find your page, and they could get it confused with Young Living’s corporate Facebook page.
  • You will have complete administrative rights over your Facebook page after completing the Facebook Service sign-up process. If you see a post from the Facebook Service that does not go along with your social media strategy, feel free to delete the post.  Feel free to also write your own posts to notify your fans of events, announcements, and more.
  • A good rule of thumb is to never post more than 1-2 posts per day on your Facebook page. Any more posts than this may annoy your fans.
  • If you have a personal Facebook profile, invite your friends to “like” your Facebook business page. Send out a post on your personal profile containing the link to your new page.
  • Try using Facebook Ads or Promoted Posts to attract more Facebook fans. You can also set your own budget for how much you want to spend on these ads. For more information, click here.
