Young Living Essential Oils

Why Young Living?

We use Young Living Essential Oils in our home in support of our natural, spiritual, and emotional health focused lifestyle. For a long time, we used other brands of oils that could be purchased from major retailers and at the local stores, but more for aromatherapy purposes. Then, a health issue arose in our family in which it became clear that we needed to more seriously delve into the world of essential oils and related supplements for more holistic approach to health and supporting the body's natural desire to heal. I signed up for a distributor account with Young Living first for the variety of supplementation they offer, their quality guarantee, the discount of 24% off retail that comes with membership as a distributor - and, because there was no pressure that to sell anything

I signed up for Young Living because I'd long felt called to incorporate essential oils and related supplements into our body, mind, and spirit approach to health and healing. Herbal healing is big in our home with my husband being an herbalist, and to me, this is just another way to add the benefits of plant medicine into our lives. This journey is a new one to me, and as I'll be sharing about the oils I'm using and how I use them on the blog as I go along. 

If you're searching for a way to start integrating essential oils into your life, I invite you to understand a bit more about how you can join Young Living and start using their products. 

Young Living Membership Options Explained

Membership options

As a retail Customer

At the customer level, you pay retail pricing and there's no selling whatsoever. Just buy what you need an be on your way. No obligation, no yearly fees, no strings attached. 

As an Independent Distributor at the Consumer level

This is the option you'd want to sign up for if you're interested in saving 24% with wholesale pricing, but not in doing Young Living as a business. To sign up, you must purchase a starter kit which ranges from $45-$260, depending on what you choose to be included in the kit. I like to think of the Starter Kit as the membership fee, similar to one that you would pay at a wholesale store like Costco or Sam's club. You only have to purchase this kit once, and then, in order to keep your membership active as a independent distributor, you must make a purchase of about $50 (50PV) once per calendar year. Again, I like to think of this as the membership fee. It's well worth it and you can easily earn it back in the amount you save in even your first order.

For the Starter Kits,  initially, I was going to choose the Basic Starter Kit at $45, but I ended up going with the Premium Starter Kit at $45, because it contained many of the oils I was going to buy anyway, plus a diffuser, at a cheaper price than I already had in my cart. The Premium Starter Kit includes: 

  • Dewdrop Diffuser
  • 10 Premium Essential oils (5ml each), including: Lavender, Copaiba Vitality™, Peppermint Vitality™, Lemon Vitality™, Frankincense, Thieves® Vitality™, Purification®, RC™, DiGize™ Vitality™, PanAway®
  • Stress Away™ Oil (5ml) 
  • Roll on attachment
  • 2 Ningxia Red Samples
  • 10 Essential Oil Sample Packets (to use or give away) 
  • 10 Sample Oil Bottles (to share oils!)
  • 10 Business Cards

To summarize, to sign up at this level:

  • You receive 24% off retail 
  • You must choose a starter kit ($45-$260) as a one time purchase
  • You don't need to sell anything to anyone
  • To keep your wholesale pricing, you must make a $50 (50PV purchase once per year)

as an independent distributor at the business level

If you want to do Young Living as a business, you'd sign up as an independent distributor like above,  but once you're a member, you'd do things a bit differently. You have to purchase that starter kit, and you receive 24% off retail pricing, BUT, in order to receive commission payouts from purchases and signups, you have to join their Essential Rewards program and make a monthly purchase of at or over $100 or 100PV.  But, don't panic. I panicked too, at first, then I realized the reason I signed up was to integrate these products into my life and that requirement will allow me to grow my supplies, try new things, and replenish stock.  And, if you're using the products in your life, this is surprisingly easy to do to restock even your own products.  With Essential Rewards, you earn a percentage of your purchase back in points that are redeemable for products, and with bonuses and sales, you can easily get to a place where these required purchases are free for you. 

To summarize, to sign up at this level:

  • You receive 24% off retail 
  • You must choose a starter kit ($45-$260) as a one time purchase
  • To earn commissions, you must sign up for Essential Rewards and make a monthly purchase of at least $100 or 100PV
