1. We Don't Sell by

WE DONT SELL ANYTHING
The way we build our Young Living business is the same way Jesus and his disciples built the early Christian Church. They didnt go out to sell the Gospel. They just went out and made it known. People could then take it, or leave it. When people were not receptive, Jesus and his disciples simply moved on to where people were ready for his teachings. In Mark 6:11 Jesus advises his disciples, If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet . . . In other words, dont be attached to whether people want to try and learn about the many benefits of essential oils or not. If not, leave them alone and go where people are interested and willing to try them. Dont continue to try to persuade them or sell them. Dont waste your time. There are many out there who will be excited and grateful for you to introduce them to the oils. Find those people.
That is what Jesus and his disciples did. Jesus was a good publicist. He made himself and his message of salvation known, but he never tried to sell what he had to offer. He and his disciples left it up to the individual to receive or reject their good offer. When he did not find many receptive people in his home town, he did not stay there to persuade them. Instead, he left town and went to the neighboring villages where people did receive him.(Mark 6:5-6)
The word, Gospel, simply means Good News. Knowing yourself what benefits can be obtained by learning how to use essential oils and incorporating them into your life, isnt that Good News. Shouldnt that Good News be publicized and shared, not for your benefit, but for the benefit of everyone you know and meet.
Not everyone will be interested and ready to incorporate essential oils into their lives. You are actually suggesting a change in life style by mentioning essential oils and what they can do for one. A person may not be interested now, but if you are nice, friendly, respectful, and dont try to sell them, they may come to you at some future time when they are ready and ask you about the oils. Then, again, maybe they never will. That is okay. Focus on doing the right things, not on the responses you may get.
Not everyone who heard Jesus, or who encountered his disciples, was persuaded to accept the Good News. Jesus blessed them, let them be, and moved on. By maintaining an attitude of willingness to share these wonderful oils, but devoid of any attachment or expectation that people will understand and appreciate them, you will have no fear or anxiety in approaching people and they wont be offended or feel pressured by your approach.
Some people say they dont want to become a Young Living distributor commenting, I cant sell or "I don't want to sell." You can assure them by words, but mostly by your example, that there is no selling necessary. You never try to persuade anyone, because it is everyones right to make their own choices, and you respect that. But because Young Living essential oils have brought you so many blessings to you and your family and you have seen them work wonders for so many, you would be remiss if you didnt mention them and offer the opportunity for individuals to know of their availability and decide for themselves.
It was the same in spreading the Christian Gospel in the first decades after Jesus lived. The disciples would be remiss if they did not publicize the good news and let people know that salvation was available, but beyond spreading the word, they had no further duty to pursue or attempt to sell what they had. In spreading the Gospel, all the disciples had to do was share what the teachings of Jesus had done for them, personally.
You can publicize the oils the same way. Give your personal testimonies and share the benefits you know about from others. Take that attitude with the oils and you wont have any fears about approaching people because if they are not interested, you will respect that. And if they are, then you can do them a favor and offer to be their sponsor and coach to help them experience the blessings and benefits you know are possible from the oils.
RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) made the headlines in today's Kansas City "Star." This illness, which can be very serious for babies and children, is said to be on the rise. Medical doctors treat it with antibiotics (Don't ask me why, because antibiotics don't do diddly-squat to get rid of a virus!) They also treat it with oxygen, which makes sense, because the little ones have a very hard time breathing once the inflammation gets going.
Those of you who have been in Young Living for even a short while know that we have many oils that are proven to be ANTI-VIRAL. But medical doctors don't "hold" with that kind of wisdom. They are disturbed because there is no inoculation against RSV at this time.
Even if there was, viruses by their very nature are extremely elusive. This is because viruses mutate so quickly. Something created by man in a laboratory might have dispelled a particular virus last week or last year, but may not have any effect on it today.
NEVERTHELESS.....God has already solved that problem! HOW? With plants that contain essential oils with naturally-occurring chemical constituents that are inherently anti-viral. Also, because the amount of precipitation, the temperature range, the soil, wind, and other environmental factors vary from year to year, each harvest of those plants differs. The difference is in the levels of those natural chemical constituents. In other words viruses cannot "out-mutate" a pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil with anti-viral capacity!
We can take advantage of that heavenly gift by diffusing essential oils in our homes, workplaces, churches, schools, etc. It's intelligent "health insurance" to do this! Plus, it's perfectly safe, smells great, and you can't inhale too much of them.
Young Living offers quite a variety of oils and proprietary Oil Blends that are anti-viral: Melissa (has shown the strongest anti-viral activity); Abundance; bergamot; Christmas Spirit; all the citrus oils (which are among the least expensive); clary sage; Egyptian Gold; Eucalyptus blue; Eucalyptus globulus; Eucalyptus polybractea (also a mucolytic); Eucalyptus radiata; Exodus II; frankincense; galbanum; helichrysum; hyssop; Idaho tansy; ImmuPower; juniper; Melaleuca alternifolia; Melaleuca quinquinervia; myrrh; palmarosa; palo santo; peppermint; pine; Raven; ravintsara; R.C. (Respiratory Care); Thieves; and Three Wise Men -- all great to diffuse! (Note: oregano, thyme, and clove are also highly anti-viral, but are better used applied to the body after being diluted with V-6 massage oil or extra virgin olive oil.)
Young Living has an array of diffusers from which to choose. If you have small children, the best one to get is the TheraPro model, Code number 4495. It has no fragile glass chimney, you can set its timers to turn on and off, and adjust the outflow. It has a very stable base, and enough weight to keep it from being knocked over. Consider it as an investment in your family's health -- something that will last for years.
I have had some of
the "original" diffusers, Code number 3660, (with the glass
chimney) for over 10 years, and they are still operating. These are quality
Remember: as with so many other products, you get what you pay for. Other brands will likely have been cut, adulterated, or distilled at high temperatures, destroying the healing power. They will NOT be 100% pure, therapeutic grade! They will still smell good, and you are probably going to enjoy that, but the virus won't be affected.
As the Winter season continues (for us folks in the Nothern Hemisphere), other preventive measures you can take are to avoid all refined foods and carbonated beverages, plus go very light on meat and dairy. (I know -- this isn't easy, especially if you have kids, but it's crucial to keeping everyone well.) Drink plenty of pure water -- the juice of half a fresh lemon in a tall glass of water every morning is a good idea, for several reasons. Get plenty of rest, and -- for goodness sake -- bundle up if it's cold and/or windy! Even if you are only stepping out for a minute, it's especially important to keep your head and neck protected from the wind (Traditional Chinese Medicine recommends this!)
And run your diffusers ALL the time, with your choice of oils or blends! Your surroundings will smell wonderful, and you'll be boosting your immune system while you destroy airborne microbes!

This program may change
your life if you are willing to try something new and be open. I love
how gentle and graceful my healing was and how wonderful to have hope
This class was very
enlightening. I would recommend it to everyone. It is nice to know that
there is an alternative to medicine.
As a Medical Doctor,
I would suggest very highly that all medical practitioners, medical students,
and residents should be exposed to programs like this.
I can say from experience
that the complete version of Raindrop, as taught in CARE Seminars, is
the very best. CARE training allows a person to completely grasp the meaning
of every technique and lesson taught so a person can carry out, with true
value and with deep spirituality, their own facilitations using CARE methods.
I am confident that I have learned the most effective way to assist others
on their journey to optimum health."
Since I can remember
I could not seem to hear what others could hear. As a result I was labeled
as a slow learner. At the CARE Seminar, the Instructor asked if he could
demonstrate the Vitaflex Ear Technique on me using helichrysum oil. So
I took out my hearing aid and he gave his demonstration to the class.
That night when I turned on my computer I had to decrease the volume by
three-quarters of the setting I normally use as it was too loud for me.
The next day I did not wear my hearing aid to class and for the first
time I did not strain to hear.
My experience in this
class was very precious and a blessing! The instructor poured out her
love all day long amongst us. She touched my heart. I would love to have
more of my dear friends in Europe receive this wonderful experience.
This program has changed
my life. I feel as if I have been waiting all of my life for this door
to open so I could walk through into my destiny. Usually I would go to
a seminar and in a few days, I would go back to my old habit patterns,
but not this time. The next day after the emotional release class I woke
up totally free from a fear I had for years. God is such a wonderful Father
to prepare these healings for us in such a simple way as offered through
CARE's ministry. I will forever be thankful. And one more thing. My block
towards chemistry is gone. Really gone!I did not look forwardto the class.
I actually dreaded it. Now, I am looking forwardto taking it again and
becoming a teacher! Miracles happen all the time! Shalom.
A fabulous reintroduction
to the oils, the chemistry, and life in general. The instructor was amazing.
The CARE Intensive
exceeded my high expectations. All of the instructors were great. Their
tremendous caring and willingness to give of self was always evident.
This program provides an opportunity to build on previous knowledge or
start new if unfamiliar with essential oils. It also enables you to participate
in personal growth and meet wonderful people.
Thank you so much
for bringing the raindrop training to Australia. I absolutely loved the
course. It was a turning point for me. I hope that you can come back to
I am so grateful for
CARE. This workshop really truly builds confidence and teaches the techniques
in a way that could be learned by anyone. Thank you! It has been so fulfilling!
This seminar will
change your life! I have no suggestions for this seminar. It was fantastic.
This is a program
for everyone. It will change their lives for a much better future. Makes
you a new person who belongs to God. Thank you.
It was great! I loved
it! Until I took this seminar I didn't have a clue that oils could do
so much! Thank you!
We traveled a long
way for the CARE Seminar (from England to California). The whole workshop
was interesting, enlightening, excellent, and very enjoyable. It was well
worth every mile traveled!
As a massage therapist
I was able to take the work that I do to the next level! The understanding
of the chemistry of essential is helping me explain the scientific way
they work. Thank you. It was a pleasure being in this class.
This training is an
absolute must for all those involved in oils. Truly awe inspiring!! We
received knowledge and healing from above.
This workshop has
been the most rewarding learning experience since my introduction to essential
oils. The wealth of material and wonderful personal experiences and knowledge
shared was beyond my expectations.
Three days after receiving
raindrop in the CARE class I received a healing from a painful shoulder
and left arm. I am very excited what the oils do for people.
Millions of thanks
to you. I am already lining up students to come to your next classes.
Everything was taught in such a simple manner that even a child could
follow and do raindrop technique. May God bless you richly in your work.
Words are not adequate
to express how great this class is. Everyone was inspired and blessed
by every section of the class. We didn't want it to end.
The CARE Intensive
was so great! It was amazing. During the three days we all bonded together
and it seemed like we were all a big family. I found the chemistry class
to be very interesting, which shocked me as I never really enjoyed science
before. You explained everything so well that now I will feel more confident
in using my oils and sharing them. Thank you for the experience and the
I am overwhelmed with
gratitude for such a wonderful program. Not only have I learned a great
deal of new skills, I have grown as a spiritual being. All this in just
three days! Thank you.
I have taken the CARE
Classes twice now and it continues to get better. The magnitude of information
is incredible. I feel like I could repeat and repeat.
I wouldn't change
anything about the CARE class. It is perfect. This little group is really
special. We were supported by so many angels and the presence of the highest
spirit. I love this training!
