BioCode Academy Global Online Essential Oils Symposium
SEED TO SEAL SPOTLIGHT
Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah
If you want to truly immerse yourself in all that is Young Living at the convention this year, you must visit the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah. Nestled against the rugged mountains of central Utah, the Mona farm features nearly 1,600 acres of fragrant herbs, a cool reservoir, pristine natural beauty, fresh mountain air, award-winning Percheron and Friesian horses, a jousting arena, a Western village, and loads of fun.
Although the farm is best known for its blossoming fields of brilliant purple lavender, it's also the source of many other key Young Living botanicals such as clary sage, goldenrod, and peppermint. These plants are steam distilled directly at the farm in the world's largest privately owned essential oil distillery. After distillation, the oils go through a rigorous testing process before they make their way into the homes of our members.
Our Lavender Farm has been serving the local and Young Living communities since 1995. Open year-round, the farm hosts a variety of family friendly activities, including the Easter Eggstravaganza, Run Through the Lavender 5K and 1K races, distillery tours, wagon rides, pony rides, petting zoo, essential oil classes, Essential Oils & Animal Coference, Lavender Day festival, Fall Festival Draft Horse Show and Rodeo, and--of cours--the International Grand Convetion Farm Day. This annual tradition for the convention draws people from all across the globe who want to experience Young Living's proprietary Seed to Seal proces firsthand and have fun in the great outdoors!
Young Living farms are where the stories of our pure essential oils begin and are the roots of our authenticity. A trip to the lavender farm is a step toward reaffirming your passion, strengthening your business, and fulfilling your destiny.
Registration for the 2017 Convention Farm Day is expected to open in March. Look for a communication around that time and be sure to sign up!
With the fruity, uplifting aroma of a freshly peeled orange, Orange essential oils is just the thing to start your morning on the right foot or to create an environment of joy, creativity, and fun throughout the day. Just remember: Like other citrus essential oils, Orange can cause photo sensitivity when applied to the skin before spending time in the sun.
Some ways to use Orange essential oil:
Iodine is a necessary mineral that your body can't produce itself. It must be consumed from an outside source through food or an iodine supplement. The USDA recommends that most adults consume 150 micrograms of iodine per day, and pregnant and nursing women should consume about twice that much.
An iodine deficiency is not something to take lightly. If you're not getting enough, it can pose a risk to your health. Pregnant women need to be especially proactive about meeting their daily requirement. Just a few decades ago, so many Americans were iodine deficient that as part of a public health initiative, many U.S. salt companies began adding iodine to their salt. When you go to the supermarket today, most salt packaging says: "This salt contains iodine, a necessary nutrient." With the new trend of low-sodium diets, however, many people are saying no to salt and are looking for other options to meet their daily iodine quota.
The best food source for iodine is seaweed, with over 100 percent of your daily need in just 1/8 of an ounce. Runners-up are animal based foods like codfish and yogurt. But you'd have to consume much larger quantities of these to get enough each day, nearly 45 times more codfish (3 ounces) and 51 times more yogurt (8 ounces) than seaweed.
Obviously, seaweed, yogurt, and codfish aren't for everybody. But we've formulated NingXia Nitro with 75 mug of our iodine, or 50 percent of the recommended daily value for and adult. Just enjoy two tubes of Nitro per day, and you're good to go! Plus, you'll also enjoy the benefits of pure essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract---not to mention a great wolfberry taste!
