To mark its 25th anniversary, Young Living Essential Oils (USA) has achieved the most contributions to a lip print mural in one week with 10,862 people leaving their mark on the company's history.
The record-breaking feat took place at the brand's annual International Grand Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah from 16-20 July which is attended annually by more than 35,000 Young Living members from around the world.
With 2019 being a milestone year, the company wanted to do something special to highlight Young Living’s ever-growing success and commemorate its dedicated community of members and decided that an official Guinness World Records title attempt would be the perfect way to do so.
The attempt began at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday 16 July.
Throughout the conference, attendees lined up outside the attempt arena where they checked in with the stewards assisting with the record count and proceeded into the designated attempt area to make their contribution.
Using various lipstick shades from Young Living’s makeup brand, Savvy Minerals, such as Mic Drop, Sweet Life, and Miss Congeniality, men, women, and children in attendance, enthusiastically applied their lipstick, kissed a sticker, and placed it carefully onto the mural.
Many participants were eager to capture their attempt experience, taking photos and videos of their contribution.
Contributions stopped being taken when the attempt concluded at 5:00pm on Friday, 19 July.
The achievement was then verified by official Guinness World Records adjudicator, Brittany Dunn, and later announced at the closing event on Saturday 20 July in the University of Utah’s Rice-Eccles Stadium.
The resulting mural beautifully depicted the Young Living logo and was made up entirely of the lip prints of 10,862 Young Living members, which was unveiled and flown above the stands via a blimp as the crowd cheered in celebration of their record-breaking success.
