It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of essential oils. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve seen me mention them many times. They’ve made a big difference for my family. We aren’t as fully into them as some families but each month we incorporate them a little more and we get a little closer to having less chemicals in our home. I bet you’ve seen other people talking about essential oils too and you’re curious about what they are all about. If you’re interested in getting started with essential oils or just what’s up with their popularity, this is the post for you!
Bonus: When you order your Premium Starter Kit through me, you get some awesome free stuff to help get you started and the first person to sign up each month gets something extra beyond that, worth up to $20!
Why Essential Oils?
Essential oils have been around for a loooooong time. There’s a reason that the wise men gave Jesus frankincense. It works and is useful for so many different things. They are so great for supporting your immune system or helping encourage proper nasal function or cleaning your home without chemicals you can’t pronounce. I’ve had great success with essential oils helping with hormonal acne, seasonal issues, and minor muscle aches, as well as many other things. Plus, I love that I’m not using man made chemicals as much to help with these things. Even just mixing up baking soda with orange oil then sprinkling over the carpet before vacuuming has become one of my favorite things. The versatility of essential oils is amazing!
Why Young Living?
There are many different essential oil companies out there. There are a few that are pure and many others that claim to be pure. But Young Living is the only one with the Seed to Seal quality commitment. Seed to Seal basically means that Young Living does rigorous quality control right from the seed. Your lavender oil? It has been going through quality control since it was a seed, before it was even planted, well before it became a plant, and well before it was processed into oil. I don’t know about you but if I’m using something natural to be healthy for my family, I want to know that it is of the highest quality possible.
Aren’t Essential Oils Expensive?
No…and yes. A 15mL bottle of lavender is going to cost you $23.50 wholesale but that’s only about $0.09 a drop as there are about 250 drops in a bottle. Since you only need 1-4 drops for most things, that’s honestly quite cost effective. Yes, you are spending more upfront but it is going to last you quite a while. Some oils are more expensive than other but you don’t need to own and use every oil. The Premium Starter Kit comes with 11 of the most commonly used oils. That’s why it is such a great way to get started. (Go here for ways to save money by using essential oils.)
Also, if you sign up for a wholesale account instead of a retail account, you will get a 24% discount off everything! Just because you have a wholesale account does not mean you need to sell. You don’t need to host classes or anything sales-y at all. As long as you order 50PV a year (roughly $50), you keep your wholesale membership.
(I personally suggest you sign up for Essential Rewards. If you order at least 50PV per month, you earn back 10-24% back to spend on a later order. The longer you’re with it, the higher the percentage earned. Plus, every three months for the first year, you get a free gift!)
My personal favorite products are: Thieves, Purification, lavender, peppermint, orange, lemon, Stress Away, Pan Away, the home diffuser, and Thieves cleaner. I like so many other of their products but those are my top ten favorites. I use a mix of at least 5 of those every day. The Thieves cleaner is amazing! I used to use vinegar to clean but not only is the Thieves cleaner disinfecting and cleaning, it also smells so good!Curious about #essentialoils? Find out more! #youngliving Click To Tweet
How to Sign Up?
As I’ve already mentioned, signing up as a wholesale customer is your best choice. It gets you the 24% off discount. Obviously, you don’t have to do this. You can just sign up as a retail customer but since all you have to do to keep your wholesale discount is order roughly $50 a year, it is a much better value.
The the only “catch” which signing up as a wholesale customer is you have to a buy a starter kit. There are a few different starter kits to choose from but the Premium Starter Kit is the best and most popular choice. Yes, you are spending $160 all at once but you are getting so much for that $160!
