The newest publication of The Essential Edge is now available. Inside this issue:
The world of essential oils is multifaceted and very complex, beginning with the location and including the soil, seeds, cultivation, harvest, and distillation. After actual production we have to look at many factors: the purpose of smelling nice, invigorating wellness, sharing with a social network, and for many producers, the ultimate goal of making money.
In a three-day effort to benefit Uganda-based nonprofit Sole Hope, Young Living members and employees came together during an international service project from November 9–11. The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation partners with Sole Hope to, in part, protect children in Uganda against a parasitic foot infection called jiggers by providing them durable footwear made from upcycled jeans. To help with their efforts, over 20,000 members from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia gathered for “shoe cutting” parties to cut out several thousand pairs of shoes from old jeans.
Oil of the Month
Myrrh has long been seen as a symbol of sharing during the holiday season. Since biblical times, this precious botanical has been sought after for its rich, earthy aroma and skin benefiting properties and at one point may have been even more valuable than gold. Myrrh essential oil comes from the resin of the Commiphora tree, common in the Middle East, and is often used during meditation to promote feelings of spirituality.
