Sybil Lumbab, an advocate of Young Living, led the DIY all-around blends to fit our own preferences. In the process, we discovered the pure sensory joy and power of the natural essential oils, many of which are harvested from their own Young Living farms.

Homegrown brand Seda Ayala Center Cebu recently stepped up its sustainability efforts by converting its solid waste into an environmentally-friendly fluff fuel.

Produced through shredding, compressing and packaging plastics, papers and fibers, fluff is one of the highest grades of refuse derived fuels. It serves as a natural alternative to other sources such as coal.
