Winter Harvest – Part 2

Posted on October 16th, 2012 | 304 comments

I know you are all excited to read the continuation of Brian White’s experience, but first we wanted to let you know that the winners from the NingXia Red® and balsam fir giveaway have been notified. We will announce their names later this week once we have confirmed shipping addresses. Now on to the main topic of this blog, part two of Brian White’s harvesting experience:

It is now day two and our focus has shifted to harvesting Idaho blue spruce. Each morning started early; we ate breakfast as a group and then met with Gary as he handed out the work assignments. Assignments were given with special consideration to each person’s skills and abilities. After receiving our assignments, some would remain in camp to help with meals, while the others would head out to the tree farm. At the farm, there was always a beehive of activity with individuals assigned to cutting trees, transporting them, removing limbs, and feeding them into the chipper. Gary led the way, directing everyone’s efforts.

I recall that the blue spruce trees were particularly difficult to chip. Normally, as trees are fed through the chipper, it grabs and pulls the trunk, limbs, and needles through the cutting chamber while blowing the chippings into the semitruck trailer. However, the blue spruce limbs were so thick and broad that they jammed the chipper, preventing the tree from passing through. Countless hours were spent cutting the limbs from the trees and feeding them through the chipper one by one.

Each evening a semitruck pulling the two trailers left Highland Flats for the distillery in St. Maries, where the material would soon be distilled into the beautiful, pink-colored Idaho blue spruce oil. Watching the oil gradually rise to the surface, breaking free from the water in the separator, brought us all a deep feeling of accomplishment.

At the recent Young Living Grand Convention, I saw many of the friends I made at the Winter Harvest. Reminiscing about our experiences and understanding the exhausting effort that goes into bringing Young Living’s pure essential oils to market brought excitement with the official launch of Idaho blue spruce.

I hope that everyone who uses Idaho blue spruce will not only benefit from its amazing health-supporting properties* but will feel a small amount of the reverence we shared for the oil as we labored in Idaho.

I encourage everyone to participate in the harvest if you have the opportunity. Your life will be enriched as you reconnect with nature, make new friends, and work with Gary to learn firsthand the incredible production processes and health benefits of Young Living’s essential oils.

Share your comments below for a chance to receive a bottle of newly launched Idaho blue spruce.

    I would LOVE to try Idaho Blue Spruce. My daughters, both YL essential oil users, live in Idaho. It would be like having them nearer me if I had Idaho Blue Spruce (they live approx. 1000 miles from me). They educated me as to the benefits of YL essential oils, and I have been a faithful user since March of 2010.

  • Sara Brazis

    My 6 year old daughters favorite oil is the Blue Spruce and Lemongrass and we cannot be without either oil. The Blue Spruce took my daughters cough away with 2 raindrops sessions. It worked like a miracle! Thankyou Gary and Young Living for bringing us another incrediable oil. We love Blue Spruce so much we went out to buy a few blue spruce trees, so my daughter can watch them grow. She now always points out the blue spruce trees where ever we go.

    After 13 years as a distributor, and using our oils all the time, I am finally on the website, and am learning. I have no doubt that Blue Spruce will be exhilarating to all who use it. I will be ordering it soon. The evergreen oils are invigorating. I live in the “Evergreen State,” and live on “Evergreen Drive.” Gary’s quest to find new possibilities all around him in a great encouragement to me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HealingLotusAromatherapy Dawn Slicker

    I adore Idaho Blue Spruce! I thought it was going to be one of my fav’s because I love all the northern tree aromas. They bring me back to my days in New England growing up. I now live in a hot climate and miss the season change tremendously. Idaho Blue Spruce is by far the winner of them all. It has such a crisp clean scent that is wonderful for meditation. Thanks again Young Living for topping my top oil! :)

    I purchased my first bottle of Idaho Blue Spruce at convention this year and am now on my second bottle. It is one of the first oils I use nearly every day and I use it to “wake me up”. I inhale it for several minutes and for the first few inhales, it always makes me cough a bit; this is how I know it’s good for me and that it’s working. Someday, I will make it to harvest. I’d love to win a free bottle of this wonderful oil!

    Thank you, Young Living, for bringing this amazing oil to us. My family does a lot of hiking in the mountains and we are always amazed when we reach a certain altitude and smell blue spruce – it is so refreshing and energizing and it grows just where you need it most to give you a great boost on the trail! It is simply amazing to be able to reap all the benefits of this amazing plant in one small bottle.

    Blessings, Barb :)

    This one sounds lovely! I recall vivid memories of hiking Coeur d’Alene mountain and Tubbs Hill as a child living in Idaho, and marveled at the tall evergreens on the west Coast. I also lived in Oregon for a few years, and it could have been my size at the time, but I swear those trees were the tallest in the world! Trees that magnificent can’t help but produce great oils and have very special medicinal properties. Put my name in the hat please! :)

  • http://www.youngliving.org/vladislavakropa Vlada

    I love this oil, not just for myself, but we we introducing 9 Everyday oils to new girls, and one had a bunion, that hurts a lots. We use Idaho blue spruce all over her bunion. She left the party and in about 15 minutes send me a text, that her bunion doesn’t hurt anymore. Way to get new members.

  • Babette Johnson

    Thank you for sharing your winter harvest experience with us Brian, I hope to participate in the harvest. When I use the Idaho Blue Spruce oil I will remember your experience and appreciate everyone’s hard work.

    This has become my favorite oil to diffuse. Not only are its medicinal properties amazing, diffusing it puts a beautiful aroma in the air, while enjoying its medicinal properties.

  • Deanna

    I would like to win a bottle of Idaho Blue Spruce. I’m new to Young Living and the reason I’m so interested in the oils is because of Gary Young’s testominal of his injury and why he created YL. My husband was injured 4/12/10 at work and it crushed his back. He has had two back surgeries and awaiting on the third. His pain and stress from his injury and our financial well being has affected his healing. I am praying for help and am led to YL.

    Please consider us!

  • David M

    I’ve only been a distributor for 3 months. Don’t have much time to search website except to place my orders. I had a couple of minutes this morning and found this Product Blog. Started reading the Winter Harvest story and found it interesting, and then read some of the comments. Got to smell/touch the Idaho Blue Spruce at a meeting in Oklahoma City a couple of weeks ago. Plan on retiring next year and will be able to travel – perhaps to a harvest or other events. Hey, Gary – how about putting some farms in the South for us warm weather friends. I’d love to win a bottle of this stuff.
