The reason why Valor has been out of stock for over a year is the same reason why I love Young Living and will always buy their products!
This month, many people are celebrating the return of Valor. Some people are calling it “as special as a unicorn citing”! Others are placing 340PV orders to get a free bottle from Young Living’s May 2017 Promotion! So why is everyone rejoicing over this purple bottle with a royal blue essential oil contained inside?!
It all started in 2014 when Young Living experienced extreme growth within the essential oil industry. With the growth at 150% annually, Gary Young (founder of Young Living) could not source therapeutic grade black spruce essential oil. Black spruce essential oil is one of the most important ingredients in Valor! And because Gary will not compromise quality, he’d rather lose $1million in profits each month from Valor being out of stock. When he couldn’t find black spruce that met his standards for the Young Living Seed To Seal promise, he decided to purchase a HUGE black spruce forest in Northern Canada and build a state-of-the-art distillery. This forest lies under the night light show, aurora borealis, and is why we call Young Living’s black spruce oil: Northern Lights Black Spruce! This essential oil is by far our family’s favorite! My husband wears it as a cologne every day and we diffuse and use its aromatic properties to calm the mind and start the day! If you haven’t tried Northern Lights Black Spruce, make sure it is on your next Essential Rewards order!
After we got enough black spruce essential oil to supply Valor for generations, another Valor ingredient had some challenges. Blue Tansy, which gives Valor its distinct royal blue color, had a bad season. Mother Nature took a tole on Young Living’s Blue Tansy crop and put Valor out of stock. So we had to wait even longer… And Young Living’s integrity was tested again: go out of stock or use an inferior oil? …Young Living chose to stay out of stock of Valor.
Rosewood, another important ingredient in Valor, had the next challenge! Rosewood was close to becoming an endangered species. And Young Living promises to respect the Plant Kingdom in its search for pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils, so the company decided that it could no longer distill Rosewood until it’s supply regenerated – this could take years or decades! So the search started for an essential oil that would be sustainable but also have the same qualities as Rosewood. This essential oil would have to replace Rosewood in Valor and create the same benefits that we all know and love in this blend. Finally, Young Living found a farm to partner with that provides camphor wood oil (not to be confused with camphor) which is an excellent replacement for Rosewood!
In all, Young Living lost ~$100,000,000 in profit since they have been out of stock of Valor all this time! But they don’t regret a single penny because Young Living NEVER compromises the quality, purity, or sustainability of their essential oils. Because of this, you know that your essential oils are dependable and safe. If you ever get a chance to hear Gary Young speak at convention, you will understand how he is completely genuine about producing the best essential oils in the world – by maintaining the Seed to Seal Promise! He would rather be out of stock for as long as needed than to provide an inferior product for you.
Let 2017 be known as the year that Valor finally came back in stock! The wait is over! And you can now purchase (only one per account per month) Valor to provide strength, confidence, courage, and quiet night sleep! For many, the nickname of this oil is “chiropractor in a bottle”!
