YL in Japan, GLC recap

Expanding the essential oil market in Japan

Expanding the essential oil market in Japan

As the interest in essential oils grows worldwide, Young Living Japan has grabbed hold of that momentum. The market is helping members unlock their potential by using YL products made just for them as part of a new, everyday routine in their lives.

One way Japan has built on this momentum is the recent Aroma Routine Seminar. Held in March, it was met with enormous enthusiasm. The easy-to-share My Aroma Routine workshop was particularly successful, along with the My Aroma Routine sheet—a great tool for product enthusiasts and business builders alike! It’s a fun way to share and use essential oils and use them, giving members a place to start customizing their essential oil routine. Members can fill it in with the products they use throughout the day, during different seasons, on different occasions, and more. At the same time, they’re creating their own YL profile to share with friends and family.

The Japan market has also created a brand-new Premium Starter Kit box specifically for members in the region. It is beautifully designed and is a joy to use.

It’s clear that members in Japan are hard at work addressing the specific needs of their country, customizing their efforts to help bring essential oils into every home in the world.
