Young Living has partnered with Dr. Joseph Wilson, author of “The Bees in Your Backyard: A Guide to North America’s Bees,” on a crucial research initiative to learn more about native bee populations?

The research project, starting on farms in Mona, Utah, and Simiane-la-Rotonde, France, will study native bee species in both locations and provide much-needed insights to help these bee populations thrive. With the lessons learned from this research, Young Living will be able to make changes to the landscaping of the farms to better accommodate these native bee species.drawn and what nesting habitats are needed.

“This groundbreaking research goes beyond Young Living and its farms. For years, research has been conducted on honey bees, but little is known about the more than 1,000 species of native bees. Before we can begin saving the bees, we will need to know which bees are on each lavender farm,” said Dr. Wilson. “The data we collect will be incredibly important to the bee and scientific community as a whole. We are thrilled that Young Living has chosen to put their efforts into this research, and that they have chosen us to partner with.”

You have less and less enzymes as you get older?

Because modern man (Homo Sapien) is actually “designed” to live up to 50 years, and your diet changes several times during your life, you can probably imagine that the inside of your body also changes over the years.
So does the inside of your digestive system!

Where once your digestive system was used to only breast milk, within a couple of years it had to get used to semi-solid food and in later years even to solid food only. Back in the day, people were much more used to foods that were already fermented, so there was much less demand on the enzymes, unlike modern foods that often should hardly pass for food due to the production process…. So the enzymes in the digestive system changed along with it.

And then we come back to the longevity of our bodies, where the later years of our current way of life can actually no longer take into account the way our food should be digested… In other words, we have to change our diet (which is actually always good – lactose and gluten free, kefir or kombucha), or we are going to give the enzymes a helping hand by adding supplements to our diet.

If you want to know more about the supplements, ask us!

That 1 cap can make an “all-purpose” cleaner of 500 to 750 ml (water)?

So from 1 bottle of Thieves® Household Cleaner, you get about 32 bottles of detergent for about €0.83 each….

If you want to make a stronger cleaning product, you can always add more Thieves® Household Cleaner to the water.

So: Clean and cheap!

Geranium is quite disrespectfully seen as the cheap substitute for ROSE oil???

And that’s while Young Living only uses the Pelargonium graveolens. This Geranium species is known to produce one of the best quality oils and grows in the Reunion Islands (between Madagascar and Mauritius). There are well over 200 species of Geranium.

Pelargonium is the Greek word derived from Palargos meaning “stork.” And that’s because the fruit of the Geranium looks like the beak of a stork.

Some companies try to substitute a species and try to sell it for other purposes than fragrance.

Geraniums were used as early as ancient Egypt as skin and hair care products, and in the 17th century these plants were in the gardens of Europe to provide protection against evil spirits…. In the early 19th century, it was the French chemist Recluz who first distilled the leaves of the geranium.

And why is geranium used by scientists and in our case the developers of Young Living products?
Because the ORAC value of Pelargonium graveolens is 1,010,011 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.

What does this number mean? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food. For example: Oranges = 750; Cloves = 1,078,700. And no, the number for cloves is not a typo!

But most of all, it’s just a wonderful smelling oil that helps balance and calm you. Excellent to use in your beauty regime and your meditation or yoga rituals.

Ningxia Red, especially the NingXia (Goji) berries in the juice and fruit puree, is a tremendously powerful antioxidant?

Antioxidants are molecules that slow down the oxidation process of the cells; they neutralize the excess of free radicals that damage the cells and thus cause aging in the body.

Free radicals are byproducts in our body; they very quickly combine with “bad” substances , causing your cells to oxidise (so to speak, rust from within) and thus age extremely fast. And antioxidants prevent or slow down this “rusting” process in advance, so that you keep healthy cells longer.

In Japan, many studies have been done to determine why people in certain places with a lot of fruits and vegetables with a high antioxidant level live so long. We are talking about people 100 years and over!

And that’s just 1 reason why we take at least 60 ml of this delicious drink every day, as a shot, mix or tea….

This Saturday, January 22, there will be another Young Living Day?

On this Saturday, we were finally going to open our home and office again and introduce everyone interested in Young Living and 100% natural living to Young Living’s amazing products….

Unfortunately, with the current measures, it is still not “allowed” to organize this, but that does not mean that we will not do it next time!

We assume that the Young Living Day in April ( when is the next one) can just be celebrated with all our acquaintances and friends. So this time we will do it one more time only online.

Young Living Day is the day that new products are introduced; there are entire groups that organize workshops or even entire conventions around this day. You can take a rain check from us for a convention like that next time.

We don’t know yet what exactly will come from Young Living, because that will only be announced a few days before January 22nd, with the solemn vow that we will not tell you until that day…

Curious about what’s to come? Keep an eye out on our Social Media and we’ll start showing you teasers!!!
