Here is some news from Young Living that they sent on August 16, 2016:
“We’re excited to announce that new formulations for six of our popular oil blends will be available this week: Gentle Baby™, White Angelica™, Valor II™, Humility™, Inspiration™, and Egyptian Gold™. We recognize that product changes can raise questions for both members and employees, but we want to assure you that each of these reformulations was carefully overseen by D. Gary Young himself to ensure that the same intent and purpose of the original formulation is not compromised in any fashion.
Because of Young Living’s dedication to providing the purest essential oils possible, we are in a living relationship with our planet that must be carefully monitored to continue on the most sustainable path for our world and our members. Similarly, Young Living has a committed Research and Development team headed by Gary Young that is constantly evaluating new farming and distillation methods to increase crop yield, botanical health, and environmental sustainability. Our goal is that every one of these new formulations maintains or improves the original purpose of the formula, provides a more sustainable outlook for our products, protects our Seed to Seal standards and attention to quality, and preserves our commitment to environmental stewardship.
You may see pricing adjustments on some reformulated products to reflect the cost of the new components. Pricing adjustments can either increase or decrease depending on the formulation, but we make every effort to keep any increases minimal through the transition process.
