Live Your Passion - April 2019
Welcome to our second Live Your Passion Rally of 2019—our actual 25-year anniversary week! As we continue Gary’s vision of providing every home in the world with pure essential oils, it’s important to remember why he and Mary planted the Young Living seed over two decades ago.
Young Living has put together one of the most exciting promotions we’ve seen recently. It’s called Dream 1000, and it runs from April through July in the US and Canada. It’s based on earning points for focusing on the core personal business behaviors: things like purchasing a Premium Starter Kit, enrolling in Essential Rewards for the first time, or your personal enrollee ranking up. These are many of the same things we’ve been focused on for Help 5, which should help your team hit the ground running for Dream 1000.
There are 3 ways to earn points during the Dream 1000 promotion:
Earn 1 point when your personal enrollee purchases a Premium Starter Kit, or when you personally reactivate an inactive member with at least 100 PV.
Earn 3 points when your personal enrollee places their first Essential Rewards order of at least 100 PV, or when you re-enroll a personal enrollee who hasn’t placed an Essential Rewards order in 6 or more months (100 PV).
Earn 5 points each time your personal enrollee achieves a new first-time paid as rank during Dream 1000.
Get started with Dream 1000 by earning points toward the Dream Oils. Beginning at 20 points, Young Living will send you each Dream Oils tier soon after you reach the qualifying point amount. Once you reach 40 points you’ll complete the collection, which contains nearly $1,000 worth of essential oils! And for the first time ever Young Living is including a brand new, unreleased essential oil single! We don’t know what it is yet, but we know you won’t be able to buy it anywhere else. What’s really amazing about the Dream Oils collection is that any Young Living member can earn it! So even if you don’t qualify for a grand prize, if you earn enough points you will still get all or part of this beautiful collection. Better yet, all the points you earn toward the Dream Oils will get you that much closer to a Dream 1000 grand prize! Each member can qualify for one Dream Oils collection during the Dream 1000 promotion.
Once you’ve starting earning points toward your Dream Oils you won’t want to stop because there are even bigger dream rewards to earn! At the end of the promotion the top 1000 point earners will also qualify for a grand prize. We’re talking free product training from Dr. Lindsey Elmore, a Select 30 kit, a year’s supply of NingXia Red, or an incredible adventure in Hawaii if you place in the top 250! You’ll want to push hard for you and your team to qualify for the trip that will includes 4 nights in Kona for you and a guest, in-person training with Eric Worre, a Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood experience, and much more! Oh, did we mention that the #1 overall also earns an Ultimate Grand Prize for them and 9 of their team members? That’s right – Young Living will cover all their travel, transportation, lodging, and meals to the 2020 Convention! There’s so much to love here, be sure to read the full details in Virtual Office and start preparing your team for an incredible 4 months!
Part of our commitment to Gary’s vision is to open five new markets each year over the next five years. Macau is currently YL’s largest NFR market, and at the end of April, it will become our second fully open market of 2019. Macau is consistently a top-growth market; its proximity to Hong Kong and mainland China has greatly accelerated its development. We’re excited to reward the hard work of our dedicated members in Macau with all the benefits of being a Young Living open market!
Young Living Foundation
This year The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation is celebrating 10 years of providing wellness and education opportunities to underserved individuals and communities around the world. The Foundation started empowering lives when the passion, vision, and heart of Young Living Founder D. Gary Young led him to build the Young Living Academy. Stay tuned for a special announcement!
The Young Living Foundation is thrilled to announce a university scholarship endowment fund called the “D. Gary Young Leadership Endowment.” Gary Young had a passion for education; he believed in learning about the world and how it works. Unfortunately, some of our Young Living Academy graduates are struggling to continue their education. Due to their socioeconomic status, many are forced to give up their studies and work to help their families meet day-to-day needs.
This endowment will support Young Living Academy graduates who want to pursue their dreams of attending university. We invite you to join us in securing the endowment’s first million dollars to support these graduates. Learn more about this new program by visiting YoungLivingFoundation.org/YLAuniversityfund.
These images are heartbreaking and happening more frequently than ever. Plastic, though it has transformed our quality of life, is having a powerfully negative impact on our world. Young Living recognizes the need to rethink our use of plastic. I’m so proud to be part of an organization striving to reduce its waste and encouraging others to do the same.
Achieving zero waste is no small feat. Earth-friendly changes are well underway at YL, and we’re excited to share what we’ve been working on!
We’re currently working to reduce waste in our farming, distillation, manufacturing, and shipping operations, as well as in our employee facilities by practicing the five Rs of zero waste: refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot. We’re looking at all material inputs and waste outputs to identify and implement improvements that will not only reduce our waste but also keep more waste from landfills.
Here are a few of our immediate goals:
• Use completely recyclable boxes and packaging material; ship items in optimal box sizes.
• Use less packaging and more post-consumer recycled and recyclable materials.
• Reduce our use of paper by providing employees and members with more digital options for sharing YL content and collaborating with their teams.
• Start a robust recycling and composting program at our employee facilities and farms to help reduce our waste by over 60 percent this year!
• Implement a water-recycling system at our distilleries, along with additional water conservation efforts at our farms.
• Educate members and employees about how to further reduce our waste and send monthly emails with zero-waste tips and ideas.
We’re excited to share one last 5×5 update today!
Gary loved to connect people with the earth. We want to encourage this connection, and Earth Day is the perfect opportunity. As part of our commitment to making a difference in the world, we’ve designated April 22 a paid holiday for employees, inviting them to spend the day giving back to Mother Earth.
We’ve partnered with organizations like the Nature Conservancy, the Arbor Day Foundation, and several cities’ parks departments to organize service opportunities for our nearly 2,500 employees. We’ll be removing litter from local waterways, parks, and trails; clearing invasive plant species; and replanting native, drought-resistant trees. It will be a day spent caring for the land that provides us with our pure essential oils.
We encourage you to find ways to serve in your communities—organizations like the Nature Conservancy and World Wildlife Fund could use your help!
Support a cause, connect with the earth, and make a difference on April 22!
Are you reducing, reusing, and recycling? Show us your zero-waste efforts on Instagram using one of these hashtags for the opportunity to be featured in next month’s blog post sharing the top 25 ways to accomplish the three Rs.

Australian Ericifolia essential oil!
Australian Ericifolia (Melaleuca ericifolia) is native to Tasmania and has a pleasantly woodsy scent with sweet floral, herbaceous back notes. This oil combines the crisp scent of Tea Tree with the calming and soothing aroma of Lavender. Like its Tea Tree cousin, Australian Ericifolia carries a mild eucalyptus-like aroma, but its linalool content gives it a touch of sweet lavender with a hint of citrus.
Australian Ericifolia is harvested from wildcrafted populations grown on Flinders Island, part of the Tasmanian archipelago of islands. This adaptive native grows 10-26 feet tall around the coastal areas and hilly slopes of this pristine island. Select populations and regrowth areas are harvested to ensure oil consistency and sustainability.
Young Living acquired an exclusive agreement from our Tasmanian supplier to be the only U.S. direct marketing company to offer this oil. Australian Ericifolia has a wide array of health benefits, and we’re excited to include it in YL’s collection of essential oils!
Australian Ericifolia is a permanent addition to our oils, and we’re launching it globally today! Grab a bottle and bring the wonderful benefits of Australian Ericifolia into your home.
