Corporate Update

From Kristen Tod, our General Manager

From Kristen's Desk

Dear Members,

The past few weeks were nothing short of enthralling! I’d love to share some of this with you, along with some exciting things coming up.

The Dalmatia Aromatic Farm Experience trip with our qualifiers to Dubai, Split and Rome was an exciting journey for everyone. The sights and sounds of Dubai were delightful, a true jewel of the Emirates. It was an absolute honour to connect with our qualifying members and their guests at the Young Living Dalmatia Aromatic Farm where our precious Helichrysum flowering plant is grown and farmed, wild among the rocks.

The opportunity to plant a Helichrysum seedling and hear our farm manager Dominik talk about our farming practices was inspiring. Our YL Dalmatia Aromatic Farm is said to be the largest Helichrysum farm in the world, with over a million Helichrysum plants throughout this farm. We also saw first hand how our Helichrysum Essential Oil is distilled, all of us leaving this fascinating farm so knowledgeable, and so in awe of our pure Helichrysum Essential Oil. The fact that we can see and experience how our pure oils are made is what truly sets our company apart from the rest.

The city of Rome was a feast for our eyes - rich in art, history, culture, cuisine and much more. It was a fitting location to end our trip with La Dolce Vita (life should be lived to its fullest) themed Gala Dinner, celebrating the accomplishments of our members and leaders. These special moments have created lasting memories for all of us on this trip of a lifetime. To all of you aspiring towards our upcoming rewards trips - I wish you every success, and I assure you that the hard work you put in now is definitely going to be worth it!

Last month was magnificent with one of our biggest potential markets opening in China! With Young Living products now available in China, it’s a significant stride toward fulfilling our mission of bringing Young Living essential oils into every home in the world. I’m delighted to note that the Country Manager for China is Vance Yuan, currently the Country Manager for Taiwan. Vance is now Country Manager for both Taiwan and China and I wish Vance every success.

It was a memorable moment attending the the official opening of Young Living Philippines just last week. We had many of our amazing global leaders and YL executive team attend from YL Global Headquarters, and the Manila office put on a fantastic show, complete with a spell-binding performance by the popular Filipina singer and actress Lea Salonga well known for her voice of Disney princesses! She is also an avid YL EO user and member - a fitting choice for this special occasion and I wish GM Tente Alday and Philippines team all the very best.

In this edition of Essential Business news our ‘Member Success Story’ features YL Golds Kim and Paul Ellis. You will enjoy reading this power couple's recount of embracing and sharing the wonderful goodness of our oils.

I’m so pleased that interest in our YL Leadership Academy has been phenomenal! We have 807 registrants who are undertaking the coaching program aiming towards the reward trip to Disneyland California and the YL Whispering Springs Farm in Mona, Utah and/or International Grand Convention 2019 along with their families. Keep kicking those goals – you have our fullest support to make it happen!

I’m delighted to note that we’ve had an overwhelming response to the beautiful gift packs in this year’s Christmas catalogue. If you are planning to order, I would make it sooner rather than later as these packs are selling fast and there are only 5 weeks till Christmas!

In closing I would love for you to consider ‘rounding up’ when you place your order – a small contribution that has great power and means so much more to those who are less fortunate than us. Every cent that is rounded up is utilised for life changing programs carried out by the D. Gary Young Young Living Foundation to those in need. Thank you for giving.

I quote an apt verse by Gary himself: “The greatest happiness we find is when we help others, especially those in such tremendous need.”

Fondest regards,

Kristen Tod

General Manager, Australia and New Zealand

Training & Events

New Philippines office, new partner farm in Mexico and Blog news!

The new Philippines office is officially open!

Young Living’s new office in the Philippines is officially open!

Young Living executives were on site with YL enthusiasts to celebrate the opening of the beautiful new facilities. The office was officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 9, which was followed by a grand opening event on November 10. Because of overwhelming excitement for the new office, both events were filled to capacity!

“With the opening of the new office and Experience Centre in Manila, we are thrilled to finally be able to offer our Filipino members the first-class Young Living experience they so richly deserve,” said Tai Tolman, Regional President of the Asia-Pacific Region. “The new facilities and the beaming faces of our staff at the YL Philippines office reflect Young Living’s deep commitment to this remarkable country and the people who live here.”

Jared Turner, President and COO of Young Living, shared in the excitement. “We are thrilled to open our doors and give our friends living in the Philippines a new way to engage with Young Living. This is another exciting step toward our 5×5 Pledge goal of bringing Young Living products into 5 million new homes over the next five years!”

This office provides an exciting opportunity for people to learn about Young Living and experience our incredible products. Please note that the new office will not change the current enrolment and shopping experience within the Philippines. Members in the Philippines will continue to order exclusively as NFR.

We’re thrilled to officially welcome this amazing new market into the Young Living family!

Meet the New Finca Victoria Farm!

Our new partner farm in Mexico

Our extended family of partner farms continues to grow! We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with the Finca Victoria Farm, located in Ciudad Victoria, Mexico!

The Finca Victoria Farm will provide Young Living with Lime and Grapefruit essential oils, which will come from citrus grown on more than 2,400 acres of farmland. And while operations span thousands of acres of farmland, the Finca Victoria Farm isn’t only a farm—it’s also a cold-press facility! This means that our oils will come from fresh citrus rinds that are cold-pressed on-site. Because the Finca Victoria Farm is a zero-waste facility, the citrus juice, pulp, and rinds will be put to good use after the oils are extracted.

The Finca Victoria Farm’s zero-waste status is one of the reasons why Young Living has chosen to partner with them, as it’s one of our 5×5 Pledge goals to bring all our operations to zero-waste status by 2024. The farm also meets our high Young Living standards and adheres to our Seed to Seal® quality commitment! The seeds are non-GMO, and the farm works to ensure soil health by strategically testing soil nutrition at just the right time.

The Finca Victoria Farm also practices fair-trade principles, which is important to the Standards pillar of the Seed to Seal commitment. The employment opportunities offered by the farm and processing facility provide important support to the rural communities around Ciudad Victoria.

We are thrilled to welcome this beautiful farm into our global family—and we know you’ll love every drop of oil that comes from their farm into your home!
