When you first crack the seal of that bottle of Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil, you’re instantly transported to the crisp evergreen forests of Canada’s wilderness. What you hold in your hands is not only a bottle of oil from Young Living Canada’s own farm, but also a piece of love from Canada’s newest Royal Crown Diamonds (RCD), Carol and Ben Howden.
Just in time for the country to celebrate Canada’s 150th, the YL family could not be more proud to celebrate the timely achievement of the Howdens! Becoming the second only RCD in Canada, this incredible achievement has been a long time coming for the Howdens who joined Young Living back in 2000. Since then, they’ve grown teams in both Canada and the United States, with significant influence across North America. Their drive to keep sharing their story and the opportunity of a better quality of life complements their ever-shining happiness and it’s no wonder how they’ve come to be where they are today.
Carol and Ben have been married for 42 years, and together along with their son Cory, are proud stewards of Young Living’s Northern Lights Farm in Fort Nelson, B.C. Since the farm’s launch in September 2015, the Howdens’ relentless dedication to the construction of a world-class distillery in the remote Canadian wilderness, and their responsibilities of managing the day-to-day farm operations with their family, has made it possible to distill upwards of 6,000 L of black spruce oil annually; ensuring that members all around the world get to enjoy the purity and authenticity of the powerful black spruce oil.
In February 2017, members got to experience the Howdens’ commitment to Seed to Seal firsthand at the first member-involved winter harvest of Northern Lights Black Spruce oil. Despite the chilly temperatures, the event was overflowing with the Howdens’ warmth and passion for the Northern Lights Farm and the special oil that is produced there.
Carol and Ben are no stranger to hard work, steadfast perseverance and lifting people up to make a difference in the world. Their tenacity and leadership gives others hope and they truly embody what Young Living is all about.
