OUT OF STOCK OPTIONS
Comments from Jared Turner concerning YL’s out-of-stock situation:
“As Travis has mentioned, we continue to aggressively acquire additional farmland and partner farms to alleviate the out-of-stock situation. In fact, Gary will be traveling this week to Morocco, France and other places to identify and acquire new YL-owned farmland, and partner farm relationships. One of the awesome competitive advantages YL has is its wide range of product offerings. When the supply of one oil is slow due to seasonality or other factors, we have others we can recommend as substitutes until that particular oils comes back in stock. We’ll be leveraging this unique YL strength more and more.
We sat down with Gary to ask him what were some good substitutes for some of the current out-of-stock oils. Here are his recommendations (please feel free to share with your teams):”
DEALING WITH OUT-OF-STOCKS
Dealing with out-of-stock oils and other Young Living products can be frustrating especially when it is a product that you depend on daily. Please be assured that Young Living is keenly aware of your frustration and is taking proactive steps and aggressive action to help remedy this situation. The image below shows you some options for substitutions for out-of-stock products.
Valor, one of our most prized oil blends, is one oil that Young Living struggles to keep in stock. For a long time it was because of the lack of availability of black spruce essential oil but now it appears that the lack of blue tansy is responsible shortage. You can find substitute recipes for it here!
In fact, around the world the natural resources needed to produce our essential oils are disappearing, which is why Gary Young is constantly on the search and procuring more land in order to help meet current and future demands. Whenever possible we prefer to own our farms in order to grow and distill from our own aromatic plants. Young Living recently acquired land in British Columbia, Canada for our new “Northern Lights” Young Living farm in order to help meet the growing demand for black spruce (used in our Valor blend) and ledum (a seasonal oil)… adding yet another farm and distillery to our arsenal!
Northern Lights Farm, British Columbia, Canada– In 2014, ground was broke on the next Young Living farm which will help us be able to have ample supply of the highly valued Black spruce, needed for our exclusive and very popular blend called VALOR.
OTHER REASONS FOR OUT-OF-STOCKS
Sometimes the lack of ability to procure oils from our partner farms comes not from diminishing supplies but because they are in regions of the world torn apart by violence and are currently considered restricted war-zones. Vetiver and Clove are two such oils as they come from Somalia and Madagascar.
Young Living continues to search the world over for suitable land to acquire for our own additional farms and also continues to search for suitable partner farms to do business with.
