We've made it to Silver Retreat

We've made it to Silver Retreat
When I first become a Young Living Member, I was so excited by all the oils, the scents, benefits and properties, little did I knew that one day, I would be invited to one of their retreats. 

A few years later, there I was, with a friend from my team,  and as well as 2200 members from other parts of the world joining the same event in Salt Lake City, Utah. 
So grateful to be part of this celebration and meet so many amazing people. Attending panels with incredible speakers, seeing the beautiful Young Living farm, and making friends with crossline members. We learnt so much in just a few days.

Sharing some moments of our experience.  
Macau --> Hong Kong --> San Francisco --> Utah --> San Francisco --> Hong Kong --> Macau

First stop - San Francisco


We missed the connecting flight from San Francisco to Utah, so it was a good opportunity to visit a new city!

8 Hours under this beautiful blue sky and hot weather!

Behind us, sea lions chilling.
Day 1 - Welcome dinner - Utah
Day 2 - Registration & Product Expo


In love with the Nature's Ultra CBD line, so powerful, no wonder everyone is talking about it. I will write a post about my experience with some of these products soon. They totally blew my mind!

Gala Dinner

The Young Living Foundation -  D. Gary Young started the Foundation in 2009. The main focus is to carry out social solidarity projects in countries such as Uganda, Nepal, Cambodia, Equador, where people receive far too little attention and empower individuals to positively affect their families and communities for years to come. Everyone can get involved in many ways, those who are Young Living members can round up their orders.
Day 3 - Farm Day
Whispering Springs Farm—Mona, Utah, USA

I honestly feel privileged to have had the opportunity to visit the farm. The Mona lavender fields and farm span nearly 1,600 acres, and the location is home to one of the largest privately-owned essential oil distilleries in the world. Isn't that beautiful?

We were able to have a first-hand experience of Seed to Seal, excellence is the heart of Young Living’s industry. Young Living farms stand apart in the essential oil industry and set the standard for Seed to Seal (planting, growing, harvesting, distilling) to ensure we receive the best quality essential oils in our home.
Farm Fairies paid a visit to our rooms. Everyone got a bottle of Juniper Essential oil
Day 4 - Training Sessions
Education is the key to success!
We learnt so much in just a few days. 
A Healthy Farewell Party
Instead of alcohol, drink Ningxia!

THIS MONTH'S YL PRODUCTS MUST-HAVES - August 2019

SUMMER VACATIONS 2019

June, July and August mean summer travelling and vacations. Whether you planned a long vacation with the family by the sea or a weekend city break just for the two of you, special moments should make lasting memories, and you want to be prepared for any new environment you are going to be in.

With a lot to pack and to think about, I prepared 8 must-haves Young Living products for each of the 3 most common types of Summer vacations for this time of the year. Young Living makes wonderful plant-based and toxin-free products, so if you haven’t tried out yet, now is a great time! Most of these products have essential oils in them and I use them all year round, but I selected a few must-haves for the summertime. If you are not familiar with essential oils, I suggest you start with a Premium Starter Kit (you can learn more about it here: 
Live healthier with natural, safe alternatives).
