An Important Message from Young Living

Our amazing success is attributable to you, our dedicated leaders, who work tirelessly building your Young Living teams and spreading the message of essential oils to the world.

You have a front-row seat to the unprecedented growth we are experiencing (more than 60,000 new enrollments last month alone!), but you have also felt some of the frustrations we all share. We care deeply about your success and realize that product availability and customer service concerns still exist. We understand that you, your family, and your customers rely on our products and that your livelihood can depend on our ability to keep up with product and customer service demands.

We are addressing these challenges head-on and investing in solutions that will not only resolve these issues in the short term, but will also ensure our long-term success and stability. Below are details about these actionable, proactive steps we are taking to support the future of Young Living and our members. We encourage you to share this information with your teams:

  • We absolutely stand by our Seed to Seal® quality promise, which is the foundation of everything we do. Young Living will only sell products we can stand behind 100 percent, even if that means higher costs for us and occasional unavailability of certain items. With the Seed to Seal commitment as our guidepost, we are quickly expanding our manufacturing and growing capacities. We have doubled the square footage of our production facilities and are purchasing additional land on which to grow our botanicals. Additionally, we are rapidly acquiring more partner farms, all of which are subject to the same rigorous quality standards that we apply to our own farms.
  • We have the broadest product offering in the essential oil industry, and many of our new members may not realize all of the effective alternatives available to them when an item goes out of stock. To help educate everyone, we are planning regular communications that will include suggested replacement products. We will also continue to give the most accurate updates possible on when items will be available again. We are pleased to offer more products than all our competitors combined. In fact, more than 90 percent of those products are available right now! Please remind your teams of this fact and encourage them to take advantage of the forthcoming education on alternate products.
  • We are launching our new Virtual Office (private beta for Platinum members and above August 1 and public beta on September 1), which means members will be able to redeem Essential Rewards points directly through the new VO. This will significantly reduce call wait times and provide a better user experience. The new system will handle much more traffic, making online ordering a smoother experience. Additionally, the new VO will notify Essential Rewards members if products in an upcoming order are out of stock.
  • We have doubled the size of our sourcing and operations teams in the last 10 months, and they are out searching the globe for new sources of hard-to-find botanicals.
  • For the short term, we are prioritizing our inventory of hard-to-source oils by ensuring that they are used in our highest demand products first.
  • We are investing all revenue generated from operations back into inventory and sourcing support.
  • Finally, we have taken some major steps to increase the capacity of our Member Services department and decrease call wait times, as call volume has increased nearly 80 percent since the convention last month. These initiatives include:
    • Recruiting and hiring more than 80 new agents and fast-tracking their training to get them on the phones as quickly as possible. We renovated a large portion of the second floor of our global headquarters to accommodate these new hires.
    • Scheduling all of our existing staff more efficiently and offering incentives for improved individual performance. It is important to us to provide a high-quality call experience for our members alongside short wait times.
We will continue to keep you informed on our progress as we address these crucial issues. At the end of the day, we know how lucky we are to have the most amazing products and leaders in the direct-selling space! Thank you for your patience, your prayers, and your tireless dedication to our shared mission.

Please continue to give us your input and feedback. Your insights and candor are truly valued by all of us.

All the best,

The Young Living Executive Team

Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe with Essential Oils

Hello Fellow Oilers!
One of my biggest pet peeves is that of discolored or stained looking teeth. And for some reason I have never found a toothpaste that makes my teeth nice and white and I have tried a lot.:) I have used Tom of Maine, a Trader Joes brand, then I even switched over to Colgate from Costco, and that still didn't whiten them. I even would swish coconut oil in my mouth for a couple minutes after brushing my teeth and that didn't even work.):
Then one of our friends sent me this recipe and after seeing their teeth after a week of using it I immediately made some and now I am needing to make a second batch.:) I love this toothpaste. It is really easy to make and so good!

There is a lot of emerging information about tooth remineralization, a process that many dentists previously thought was impossible. This article goes into detail about the science behind tooth reminerlization and the dietary steps necessary also. (It also explains why ingredients in most toothpastes, even natural ones, can demineralize teeth and cause tooth decay!)
The information I found in researching this was mirrored by my own experience over the last few months with natural toothpastes.
I’ve noticed definite changes in my teeth over the last few weeks. My teeth are whiter than they’ve ever been and everyone who I’ve have talked to about there use of this toothpaste has remarked that it makes their teeth feel very clean.
This recipe is kid-approved, and since it has no fluoride, its safe on babies, toddlers, and those with thyroid problems.
If you want to whiten teeth, improve an oral health problem or just try a natural alternative to commercial toothpastes that contain harmful ingredients, definitely try making this toothpaste!
natural homemade remineralizing toothpaste ingredients Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe

Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste Ingredients:

  • 5 Tablespoon: Calcium powder
  • 1 Tablespoon: Diatomaceous Earth (optional- contains trace minerals and silica. UPDATE: A was reading another article about this and it noted that DE can be abrasive and is not needed with the baking soda, so if you don’t have DE… no worries!)
  • 2 Tablespoon: Baking Soda
  • 3 Tablespoon: Xylitol Powder- This ingredient is not completely necessary, but just keeps it from tasting bitter.
  • 3-5 Tablespoon or 1/4 cup : coconut oil to get desired texture
  • Your Favorite Essential Oil(s): Best for flavor: Peppermint, cinnamon, purification, clove and orange are all good. My favorite is Thieves! We all loved the Thieves Toothpaste that Young Living offered, but it was just to expensive for our family to keep on ordering.): So I was overjoyed when I saw that I could make my own for a fraction of the cost. I did 6-9 drops of Thieves. It was so good!!
How To Make Natural Remineralizing Toothpaste
1. Mix all powdered ingredients (calcium, Baking Soda, Xylitol) well in a bowl. If you are starting with calcium tablets, powder them in a food processor. If you are starting with capsules, dump them out into the bowl.
2.. Add Coconut Oil one tablespoon at a time until you get desired consistency.
3. Add Essential Oils for flavor! Make sure they are only Young Living's see why here.
4. Store in small container like 1/2 pint glass jar. To use, either dip clean toothbrush into it, or use Popsicle stick or spoon to put on toothbrush. I’ve also thought of storing in a plastic bag with a corner cut off to be able to squeeze like toothpaste, but haven’t tried it yet.

I hope you will love the toothpaste as much as our family is. Let me know if you try it and your experience with it.

Until Friday!

Happy oiling,

Step by step instructions on how to join Young Living Essential Oils:

1.Click on the picture to begin the enrollment process. It’s super easy!
2. I highly recommend the Independent Distributor. There are NO strings attached for being a wholesale member. You aren't required to order monthly or anything. It is AMAZING! If you select “Retail Customer” you will not receive wholesale pricing, you won’t have access to starter kits and you will pay retail cost which is 24% more than wholesale.
3. Make sure my member number {1293314} is in both the Sponsor ID and Enroller ID spots.
4. Be sure to include your email address. That way  I will know when you have signed up and I can make contact with you.
5. Choose the kit you want. {I highly recommend the Premium Kit.} Now check out.

6. Next make sure to go to the Essential Rewards tab and place your first order of 50 PV or more. That way you can get started with the ER program right away so you won't forget about it.:) Also make sure to set-up and axiomatic date for your monthly shipment! Then proceed to check out. 
7. That’s it! Your oils will be on their way to your doorstep!

The Essential Reward Program

So you’re ready to order more oils?  Here is my recommendation for purposefully building a cabinet that will provide you with what you need, when you need it, while planning for your spending. (First, make sure you’re a wholesale distributor instead of a retail customer so you’re getting that 24% discount!)

Ensure that you always have the benefits of your favorite Young Living products with the convenience of Essential Rewards, where products are shipped hassle free to your door! Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about Young Living’s Essential Rewards Program!

Creative Ways To Participate

Young Living Members TIP: Log into your virtual office and click the essential rewards tab to set up the program. All Essential Rewards Orders will be modified and placed by clicking this tab. The tab is located on the left side of your back office. First time you set up the credit card, shipping date, add your products and CLICK SAVE. Once it is set up all you have to do is modify your products or shipping date.

Young Living Business Leaders: If you are sharing the products or opportunity of Young Living remember your only investment / overhead is your minimum order of $100 / 100 PV Essential Rewards Order. So below you will see in your first 1-6 months 10% of 100 is $10.00 credit. Then in when you are in the program for 7-12 months you get 15% of 100 and that is $15.00 credit. Then after 13 months of being in the program you get 20% of 100 and that is $20.00.  So as you can see this is very exciting. Every three months I call Young Living and cash in my points for free products. We are in love with the products that I actually spend at least 100- 200 per month. Usually I spend 50-100 for our family and then I order the rest for gifts for christmas, birthdays, mother’s day, hostess’s gifts etc. So I am getting $40-$60 dollars every month of free products! If you see someone making orders of $50.00 or more give them a call and share this program with them so they don’t miss out! Also if someone places a huge order ever few months of $200 then you can also suggest this program and help spread out their order so they can get some free products!

Happy Oiling,
