Starting Out With Essential Oils: Young Living Starter Kit

October 15, 2015

 On here + on my Instagram, I share openly about my lifestyle. Along with that, I have often shared about my use of essential oils! (You can find my other posts on oils here) Many times, when I post about essential oils someone will reach out asking about the benefits of them, how I use them, if I distribute them + the most cost-effective way to purchase them.

This got me thinking. . . I wanted to write a post about how I recommend entering into the world of essential oils.
For those of you wanting to make a lifestyle change & really integrate these oils into your life, or those of you who are just becoming curious about them, this one’s for you: 

If you are interested in joining my team & having me help you with your oily life–that makes me ecstatic!
Here is the breakdown of why I love Young Living essential oils & how to purchase. . .

Did you read the post where I shared how I chose Young Living (here)?  The gist was that YL truly impressed me by their product quality, the fact that they own their own farms + their seed to seal process. They also hold their plants and oils to a very high standard and test their oils both within the company and through a third party to make sure everything is 100% therapeutic grade and safe for use.

Young Living has the best and most affordable starter kits on the market, making it easy for you to dive right in to oily life! We use oils in our household every single day and I will happily help you to learn how to use them in yours!

To enroll with my team, click this link and make sure the number 2479948 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields.

Signing up for wholesale, you will get 24% off retail prices which is incentive alone!

If you are joining my team, two things that I recommend:

One is purchasing the $160 Premium Starter Kit and picking an Essential Rewards Kit.

(I recommend the Premium Starter Kit ($160), Premium Starter Kit w| Aria ($260) or Premium Starter w| Thieves)

With the premium starter kit, you are getting $400-$500 worth of product for $160-$260. It is the best bang for your buck! It comes with 11 oils, a diffuser ($100-$200 value alone),  ningxia red packets, sample oils + sample cards, roller lid, information on all of the oils + the YL product guide.

Make sure you choose the wholesale option for those lower ordering prices!

OPTION ONE | Wholesale Customer ( click here) – recommended

  • 24% off retail pricing
  • No renewal fee – simply purchase a minimum of $50 of product per year and your account stays active
  • No order minimum – order whenever you like, as often as you like at 24% off retail prices
  • Although Young Living refers to their wholesale customers as “Distributors” this does NOT mean that you are signing up to sell oils & there is absolutely no pressure to do so – ever.
  • You receive a member number to share with friends; if they order using your member number, you’ll receive compensation (but, again, enrolling as a “Distributor” does NOT mean that you have to share oils with anyone)

OPTION TWO | Retail Customer (click here)

  • No starter kit required.
  • Order products whenever you would like (but pay 24% more than a wholesale customer).

It’s so nice that both options are available because it makes it all about the products without any pressure whatsoever to share your oil journey. However, I doubt you would regret enrolling as a wholesale customer because of the 24% savings. The Starter Kit investment is very quickly recovered with the savings off of retail pricing.

By purchasing a Rewards Kit you are signing up for a Essential Rewards (YL’s monthly ordering program) which gives you the ability to earn points for free products, enjoy reduced shipping costs + plan out your oily budget. Plus if you are a part of Essential Rewards you are able to receive commissions off of sharing about the oils. THIS IS NOT REQUIRED–just something I personally suggest if you are going to integrate the oils into your life!

When checking out with your starter kit, feel free to select “no thank you” for the ER or choose a package and ship them together for extra savings. If you don’t see a package that catches your eye, you can customize your own (see below for instructions)!

I strongly recommend this! You get 10-20% back in points each month, you can purchase products that you would be buying anyways (shampoo, vitamins, toothpaste) while hitting that 100 PV (pv=product value which is typically one point per one dollar) to get commissions, get discounted shipping and more! You do NOT have to sign up with a package, you can tailor it to meet your needs. This is the only way to make commissions if you are interested in building a business. & the beautiful thing is that you can cancel at any time!

To customize,
Go into Essential Rewards.

– Click EDIT

They are an AMAZING alternative to the nasty, chemical-ridden products you are probably using (maybe unknowingly) in your routine. We use them for our household (cleaning, laundry, diffuser instead of candles), health routine (oral care, sleep aid, stress relief, emotional balance) + my beauty routine (blemishes, skin care, hair care).

Essential oils are defined as the vital and aromatic fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. Think of these oils as a plants’ “immune systems” – it is essential to the life and health of the plant. Oils are extracted through careful steam distillation that ensures all the important therapeutic and health-giving constituents of the oil remain intact. You can read more about Young Living’s Seed to Seal process here.

There you have it! These are my recommendations on how to purchase the Young Living Oils & how to integrate them into your budget + life. Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you may have about this post or the oils in general!

Also, here are all of the blogposts I have written about my use of essential oils if you find them helpful!
