Live Your Passion!
Every year, at convention Young Living will unveil it's latest blend, created for the convention theme. It's a blend Gary Young created to go along with his fiery passion to teach people the correct use of essential oils, harvested and distilled for use in wellness. In us, on us, around us. On our kids and our pets - there is only one oil company than can assure me of the safety because of this:
Since this post is not solely about convention, I won't say too much other than it was our theme, and convention was well done this year!
Then again, it was my first one, so I can't compare, but it was the highlight of my year!!
We got to hear this guy speak:
Yep, there he is. The man. THE man. Seriously THE MAN - ha! Walkin' around on the "Live Your Passion" stage. If you want an eye opener about what he has gone through, both in his life, his business, and how essential oils are what they are today - why everyone is copying this, Read This Book:
Ho - lee cow. I mean really - this is an eye opener, and so interesting, even if you are not a geeky researcher like me! Ya, I live my passion all right. Be careful, or if you are like me, you'll have about a million books on this subject...
...and 3 or 4 more on the way, such as these 2...
You'll learn why distillers at YL farms look like this:
I got to take this picture! Close up! And now I know why part of the distiller is sideways! But I am not telling you today because this is supposed to be about the new oil, Live Your Passion.
So, convention starts, and THE MAN addressed 25,000 of us. Biggest Convention ever! Read the book - the first few conventions may have had 25 people. Anyway, the man spoke. He spoke to us from his heart, and the joy he has is inspiring because there really is no quit in that man (Again, read that book!)
So, Gary gets up and he tells us a bit of his story, starting with how he made his first blend, RC, in 1985. He brought up this lovely woman, Donna Riley, who came to see him in his health clinic back then, before Young Living. She had been given two weeks to live, and he formulated RC along with ComfortTone and JuvaTone, and worked with her, getting her back to wellness. Here is it, 2016, and she looks wonderful!
As Gary went on to tell us how Young Living plants seeds in Human life, that they "Share and Care people" and it's not about the "Sharing and Caring of Money", my heart swelled. I have sensed this from day one. Just last night, we got a message from corporate about certain oils being out of stock because some of the oils have been "temperamental". (Again, read the book to see why they even care!) This means that if the crop and distillation is not perfect, it's not used. Gary will not allow a sub-standard oil for profit. He won't take that risk as it's too risky for us! Good for us that so many oils address the exact same things! We just get lazy and want to keep using the same things :) We don't always want to try a different one.
And then, Gary began talking about our newest blend, Live Your Passion.
What is in Live Your Passion, and why? Here is what Gary told us about the oils he chose for this blend and their purpose in it. Remember, each oil has many uses, but these is why he chose them for LYP:
Orange: I love Orange! It's used all over in my home! For this Gary chose it because it invokes feelings of our childhood.
Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood: Ooh! I don't own this one yet! I hope to budget enough $$ for it soon! It's amazing, and I'm so glad it's in this blend! Gary chose it because among many things RHS is anchoring and grounding.
Nutmeg: Another perennial fave it the Reinsma home, one one of the reasons I love it is because it's well known to assist our endocrine system and our energy. What I did not know is that it enhances passion! (Maybe I should NOT diffuse this every night hee hee!)
Lime: Boy, no wonder I love this stuff. I love Lime! Which was chosen as it complements Orange in those feeling of childhood.
Idaho Blue Spruce: Enhances masculine energy (courage) in both sexes.
Northern Lights Black Spruce: Ah, a second "power hitter" Spruce oil, a very special oil from YL's Northern Lights Farm, used in so much. For this blend, Gary chose it to complement Idaho Blue Spruce, and to balance male/female energy. That's a good idea when living our passion. Sometime we have to really fight for it don't we!
Ylang Ylang: For romance. Not like you might think - but as we court our passion in life, it's like a dance, like a romance. You love it, you hate it, but you have to have very strong feelings for it or it won't work!
Frankincense: Ah, my buddy Frank. Frank is a freaking miracle! Under appreciated, used too little in life in my opinion, Gary used this oil for this blend because of how it enhances our creative, spiritual sides.
Peppermint: Ah Peppermint. One thing I forget to add in my original Peppermint post is that it's a driving oil. I like to add it as the top oil in a layering approach to drive it all in. Gary chose it for this oil to enhance and drive the effects of all the other oils in the set.
Yep - got this baby in my diffuser right now! It's wonderful!
