About Young Living
Young Living is committed to uniting ancient traditions and modern science to promote health and longevity. Through extensive research and commitment to quality, they are dedicated to growing, distilling, manufacturing, and marketing the highest-quality organic essential oils and oil-enhanced products in the world

About the Product Line
Essential Oils
Freshly cultivated and steam distilled, the essential oils in Young Living’s collection are life-enhancing gifts from the plant kingdom, revered for centuries for their restorative properties to body, mind, and spirit. Pure essential oils now re-emerge as a key solution to the challenges facing modern lifestyles. Superior to all other supplements, Young Living’s therapeutic-grade essential oils deliver positive benefits to the body through smell, direct absorption into the skin, and by normal digestive processes. Antiseptic, calming, stimulating, soothing, Young Living’s essential oils bring balance to all systems of the body.

Nutritional Supplements
Young Living sells food and dietary supplements of the highest quality that are enriched with therapeutic-grade essential oils. One of the greatest threats to health in our fast-paced society is the highly processed, chemical-, fat-, and sugar-laden foods eaten on a daily basis. A great need of the modern world is convenience foods rich in nutrition. Young Living creates food products similar to those eaten by people who live to an old age, while remaining healthy, alert, and self sufficient. All food products contain nutrient-dense, natural, whole ingredients and are free of sugars and artificial sweeteners. Dr. Gary Young discovered in clinical practice while doing bacteriology studies with the blood that there was a substantial amount of undigested protein in the blood serum that could not penetrate the cell membrane because of low oxygen levels. When he enhanced foods and supplements with essential oils, he did not detect any undigested food in the blood. He also discovered that supplements enhanced with essential oils increase the absorption of food nutrients and aid in the detoxification of the body.

Personal Care
Many personal care products in the world today contain harmful petrochemicals and mineral oils that dehydrate the skin and clog the pores. In contrast, essential oils are easily absorbed into the skin, oxygenating, and rehydrating. Gary Young searches worldwide for the most natural ingredients to combine with Young Living’s therapeutic-grade essential oils. This unique combination improves the overall health and appearance of your hair, skin, and teeth. Luxuriate in an aromatic experience while reaping the benefits of the highest-quality personal care products available.

I took a Sketchbook Journaling class with Susan Cornelis today, to help get me into the free and loose approach to spontaneous art. It was a fun day; I enjoyed the small, quick renderings. I hope to do more of this.


What a September!

Today is the last day of the month, and so much as happened.

This month found me noting birthdays for these people: son-in-law Yancy, ex-sister-in-law Debra, friend Tom, husband Ed and friend Toni. My stepson Derek and his wife Kim celebrated their 2nd anniversary.

Val and Tom…birthday time!

I went to the Young Living Essential Oils convention in Washington, D.C. with Tara and Carolyn. It was a long plane trip.  We stayed at a quaint and historic Henley Park Hotel, right across the street from the convention center. We were saturated with aromatic oils the whole trip and riding very high! Fabulous!

Tara, Kat and Carolyn in DC

The convention was as I expected, brimming with enthusiasm and conviction, gratitude and praise. We learned about new products and heard antidotes from Ecuador.

We stayed on longer to do some sight-seeing and took a twilight tour of the monuments and memorials highlighted by the White House and the Capitol building. I had sprained my knee the week before we left to go to this convention, so walking was not as easy as usual, but we walked to the Smithsonian several times.

Ate at many great restaurants, but the highlight was the art! Carolyn and I made our first stop the National Portrait Gallery. We planned on staying only for a couple of hours, but it was just too good to pull ourselves away from. It was a whole day excursion.

The following day Tara joined us to see the National Gallery of Art. I was totally awestruck at the art, the immense talent! There were a handful of great pieces that brought tears to my eyes, but the one that stood out the most for me was Jon Vermeers’s “Girl in a Red Hat”. Teary eyed, I could not pull myself away from the painting. It was magnetism. I also viewed some Rembrandt’s, Van Gogh’s, Renoir’s, Monet’s and Manet’s. Another great painting I saw was Albert Bierstadt’s “Among the Sierra Nevada”, a massive oil painting.


Once back home I entered the Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County’s Aqua Areas show, and received the Rod Lee Memorial award and a cash prize for “Day Dreamer”, a portrait of my grand daughter, Ashlyn.

“Day Dreamer”

It was announced at the Artist’s Workshop of Sonoma County meeting (AWS) that I would be their next president, my duty starting next January.

Last week I hustled to prepare paintings for entry to the annual Harvest Fair. They have to go in the first of October.

I saw my YLEO business partner Sherri, and had a great lunch at Latitudes with former Barefoot Cellars co-worker Toni, and had a goodbye lunch with fellow artist Phyllis Rapp. Networking, of course.

Preparations were under way for my trip to LA next month to attend a Dani Johnson seminar with Tara and Caroyln. And, beyond all this, I did projects for KatGrafix clients. Jen, a client and winemaker just won a gold medal from the Harvest Fair for her J. Lynn 2005 Chardonnay. 

Whew! Tomorrow starts another great month!

I am very excited to share my art, thoughts, poems and interests in this blog. I call it “Annointed HeArt” after the heart-felt creation of art, and because of my interest in Essential Oils, their frequencies and therapeutic qualities. When Essential Oils are used with the creative process they have the ability to affect our spiritual and emotional bodies, potentially raising the frequency of awareness and experience, thus “anointing” the process.
New art and posts will occur regularly, so please visit often!

Where Am I?
