The One Gift

Young Living’s International Grand Convention is fast approaching! I have been on a grand and exciting adventure for the last 15 years doing research and the last two years filming to bring to you the most spectacular and most advanced science on essential oils the world has or will ever witness. Over the past year, the completion of the filming and my studies has taken me into seven different countries. I have traveled through the most wicked, unforgiving, and terrifying wilderness in the world: the Rub al Khali, which stretches over 250,000 square miles with temperatures reaching 131 degrees. The land is infested with deadly black Arabian scorpions, cobras, and flesh-eating camel spiders the size of a Frisbee. These enormous spiders can run up to 26 miles per hour! The wind blows up to 90 miles per hour, creating sandstorms that can bury an oasis or a caravan in less than an hour.

I have walked ancient paths where caravans carried resin from the precious frankincense tree that grows from the limestone rocks, cliffs, and mountain slopes. A scrubby, twisted, deformed tree that lives 10 months of the year without water, yet yields this rich life-giving resin that for 3,000 years commanded a price 5 to 10 times higher than gold. I traveled throughout Africa collecting resins from the many varieties of frankincense, including Kenya, and visited the neglected land of Somalia collecting the carteri and the frereana varieties. This is the only place frankincense grows, unlike stories of it growing in Oman that are not true.

You cannot miss this convention to see the documentary on the truth about frankincense! You’ll learn why it was such an expensive commodity that Nero, the emperor of Roman Empire, wanted to pave the streets with it. This is your opportunity to learn about the different species of frankincense and hear from Arabian experts, PhDs, medical doctors, etc., talk about the latest discoveries for the treatment of disease and how it can build your immune system and protect you. I will be sharing with you all of my experiences and discoveries.

This convention will be unlike any that have come before! For the first time, I will reveal the ancient secrets of the people and how they protected themselves from diseases. I will reveal the actual Frankincense Trail that was traversed by merchants and the caravaners centuries ago. From this information, I bring a gift that will change how we view the healing properties of frankincense and why it was cherished more than gold.

From my heart, I invite you personally to join me this June in Salt Lake City. Take those five days and immerse yourself with memories, friendship, and knowledge that will last a lifetime.

Essentially yours,

D. Gary Young
