CARE Summit 2023 at Highland Flats Tree Farm

Anthony Stewart, FCCI, Executive Director

By Anthony Stewart, FCCI, Executive Director

Every year CARE Instructors come together for our Annual CCI Summit so that we can refresh, learn, and grow. What better way to further our love and knowledge of essential oils than to experience firsthand how essential oils are grown, harvested, distilled, tested, and bottled! In early August we gathered at the Young Living Highland Flats Tree Farm and Distillery in Naples, Idaho. CARE Instructors traveled from as far as Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia to attend.

As you drive down the gravel road leading to the distillery you will see young evergreens to the right, many of which were planted by CARE Instructors years ago. Just beyond the entrance you can see a building to the left where Idaho Blue Spruce and Grand Fir are distilled, with a gorgeous mountain view in the background.

CARE Instructors and Interns enjoyed the full experience of harvesting Idaho Grand Fir and then followed the load of evergreen material to the distillery where it was steam distilled into essential oil. Each of us filled and capped our own bottle of Grand Fir during the tour.


CARE SUMMIT 2023 AT HIGHLAND FLATS TREE FARM

Did you know… Both Idaho Grand Fir (Abies grandis)  and Blue Spruce (Picea pungens) were traditionally used by Native Americans? The fragrance of Grand Fir is emotionally grounding and spiritually uplifting. Idaho Blue Spruce was used by Native Americans for smudging and purifying, and is a very diverse oil emotionally, effective in assisting us to release emotional blocks.


In the hours and days that followed, CARE Instructors heard from speakers such as Christina Hagan, LCCI on ethics and “All Things Raindrop”; from Dr. Tamer Zakor from Malaysia, who is an expert on resonance and its healing power in the body. Dr. Zakor did a brief yet profound demonstration of how our intentions can affect the power of essential oils.

Marie Keopke, LCCI lead a discussion of the book The Body Electric by Robert O. Becker, MD and Gary Selden, followed by an explanation of the physics relating to this book by Rihab Sawah, FCCI. Other presenters included Amy Pittman, CCI, Ismenia Azcanio, CCI and Kristina Zittle, FCCI.

CARE Instructors also spent time together demonstrating and testing our Raindrop and Vitaflex skills. This helps us all as CARE Instructors to maintain consistency in teaching and preserves the integrity of the techniques as originally taught by D. Gary Young and passed on by CARE’s founders David and Lee Stewart.

Summit is always a rejuvenating and renewing experience. But this year, in addition to learning together, we had the opportunity each day to sit in the three hot tubs on the farm, all of which were filled with floral waters from the distillery. This three-day retreat was an experience like no other.

CARE’s Annual Summit is open to all Certified CARE Instructors and CARE Interns. If you would like to become an instructor for CARE, contact your local CARE Instructor, or click here to learn more about becoming a CCI.

Advanced Bible Oils and Emotional Release

The day preceding the CARE Summit, Anthony Stewart, FCCI taught Advanced Bible Oils, which is an 8-hour in-depth training on how to teach CARE’s History of Anointing and Laying on of Hands class to diverse groups of people, and how to field questions that may come from students. It also explores much of the Bible’s rich history.

In the three days following Summit Anthony also taught Advanced Emotional Release, where students learned extensively how emotions are linked with our bodies, how unresolved trauma can negatively affect our lives, and how we can find personal freedom through emotional release. During the training, we had the wonderful experience of practicing facilitated emotional releases on one another.

CARE’s advanced classes are open to anyone who has previously attended CARE classes. Advanced Bible Oils will be set for the day before CARE’s Annual CCI Summit in 2024 (dates to be announced). Advanced Emotional Release dates have not yet been set for 2024, so keep your eyes on the CARE Calendar and future issues of the Raindrop Messenger!

Health Tip:

from Lora Lee Stewart, FCCI

Apple Cider Vinegar and Essential Oils…

Perhaps many of you are already familiar with the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar… This short article will briefly outline some of those benefits as well as specific essential oils that can enhance those benefits. Apple Cider Vinegar (with the “mother” present, made from fermented organic apples) is a rich source of minerals (particularly potassium), vitamins, enzymes and amino acids. Taken internally, Apple Cider Vinegar can help with a wide range of internal conditions, according to a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Berkowsky (Natural Health Science). Here are some conditions that can be modified with the use of Apple Cider Vinegar: obesity, diabetes, cataracts, heart weakness, blood pressure abnormality, high cholesterol levels, asthma, common cold, nasal/sinus congestion, digestive weakness, indigestion, hiccups, constipation, diarrhea, gall stones, bladder infections, kidney stones, prostate enlargement and vaginal yeast infection, just to name a few… there are several other conditions that it can help.

Apple Cider Vinegar can also be used externally along with Rosemary essential oil, Lavender essential oil, Cedarwood essential oil, or Tea Tree (Melaleuca) essential oil to help with hair, scalp and skin conditions. 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water along with 5-6 drops of any of the above essential oils can help with hair strength and vitality, dandruff, scalp conditions, skin conditions and many other things. It can be used in a bath for relaxation or as a “shampoo” of sorts.

Hello!  I’m Christina, an LCCI from North Carolina.  I’m honored to have been asked to help kick off the Raindrop Messenger.  I’ve missed reading the oily advice from Dr. Stewart, Anthony and fellow CARE Instructors.  I’m so happy to have it back and look forward to receiving them in my email inbox.

I’ve been teaching with CARE since 2006, so I’ve seen many changes both in Young Living and CARE.  One thing that hasn’t changed is the passion each CARE Instructor puts into their classes. This became evident to me during our most recent Summit in Idaho.  I could hear the enthusiasm of our instructors as we discussed our experiences teaching about essential oils, Vitaflex, Raindrop and Emotional Release.  I count myself very blessed to be teaching with such a spiritual and caring group. 

Since I’ve been teaching for a while I’ve wanted to offer additional support to my fellow Raindroppers.  That desire led me to writing the Raindrop Resource Guides for Oily Families and Practitioners.  I also create the All Things Raindrop Community, which you are welcome to join!

When I’m not talking oils or seeing clients at our therapeutic bodywork office, I like to work in the garden, go hiking, swim or paddle board at the lake and cook with my family.  We’ve been living in the Raleigh area for 15 years now.  Talk about seeing some changes!  Our little town is simply exploding.

My interest in gardening and our southern location has led me to grow quite a few cucumbers!  If you have an abundance of cucumbers this summer, one of my most recent favorite recipes is from a southern grandma.  It is for refrigerator pickles.  They are easy to make and just as easy to eat!

I hope you are excited to receive the Raindrop Messenger in your inbox again.  Don’t forget to tell whatever email server you use that you trust emails from RaindropTraining.com – These emails are way too good to end up in your Junk File!

I hope you are enjoying the end of summer, and as we slide into the fall – don’t forget to use Raindrop as a tool to support you and your family’s health!

Many Thanks,
Christina
