Being a somewhat 'natural' kinda gal and a health conscious individual I have always been interested in using Essential Oils for their health benefits. However, doing reading on the subject has led me to believe that the quality of the oils you find in your health food store are not the kind you want to be ingesting or perhaps using for therapeutic purposes. Sister-in-law has been involved in and using Young Living Oils for several years now and has nothing but good things and many positive testimonials to share. Young Living oils are one of the very few that you will find that you are able to ingest. They have a seed to seal motto which means that they are involved and are invested in their products from the point of it being a seed, to sealing it into it's packaging. They hold high standards for the quality of their products and do not settle for a lesser quality product for their customers. Young Living even owns many of the farms that produce the plants that they then distill into their essential oils.
So, not so long ago, I signed up for a Young Living membership and started using their oils on our family. I saw immediate results and huge benefits. I am now totally invested and trusting of their products.
I am so pleased with the results we have seen that I want to shout it out from the roof tops and share the love of Young Living oils. Have I got your attention? Are you interested? Go ahead, visit the Young Living website here to take a peak at their products.
Now, don't get scared off by the prices, because I'm going to share with you how you can get them for less than retail. And besides this, you are buying quality products that I feel you can trust for the wellbeing of yourself and your families. For me, it's worth it.
Go ahead and read below on how to sign up for a Young Living membership and received 24% off your purchases.
2. Decide if you want a Retail Membership (pay full price for everything), or get a Wholesale Membership (get a 24% discount, promotions, and the opportunity for less expensive shipping). There is no minimum monthly purchase requirement for either membership if you live in Canada. (Outside of Canada, you are required to purchase a starter kit when you sign up as a Wholesale Member). In my opinion, choosing a Wholesale Membership is the best, most cost effective way to go.
3. Begin filling in the remainder of the Membership Details. Where it asks “Who introduced you to Young Living?” select “I was referred by a Young Living member, and I have his or her member number”.Please enter my number in both the Sponsor and Enroller spaces:2243283.
4. Fill out your name and address. Create a Password and PIN code. (I recommend taking note of both of these).
5. Select your enrollment order. This is where you can specify which starter kit you would like. Personally, I think the Premium Kit is the way to go but there are other starter kits available. The Premium Kit offers the best value ($300 value for $173 [-24% with a Wholesale Membership]).
6. To maintain your 24% discount going forward, you only need to spend $50 worth each subsequent year with Young Living on any product in their store. That’s it!
7. Young Living has a program called Essential Rewards which allows you to collect points on your purchases and apply them to future orders. This is a rewards program you can opt into to start earning money back to help pay for your oils. If you sign up for Essential Rewards you are required to make a minimum 50 PV (point) purchase per month. You can opt out of this program at any time if you choose to. Being an Essential Rewards Member also allows you to receive discounts on shipping and special promotions. There are no other fees.
7. Agree to the Terms & Conditions
That’s it! Congratulations!
You will receive a confirmation email– you can log into your virtual office right away to place and manage orders, check your team, and send messages. If you have any questions you can contact Young Living’s Customer Service Team at:
Canadian Customer Service: 1-855-429-2616 (toll-free)
USA Customer Service: 1-800-371-3515 (toll-free) ..or of course you can contact me and I would be pleased to help as well.
In my opinion, the way to buy the products is to sign up as a Wholesale Customer. You can order as much as you like, anytime. When you choose to be a Wholesale Customer, you can just “distribute” to yourself and you are not required to sell to others. You are NOT AGREEING TO SELL or distribute anything. You get 24% off all essential oils and products containing essential oils. You are charged a little less for shipping. And you’ll have access to sale prices and promotions. It’s the most economical choice. And there is NO sign-up fee in Canada. (Outside of Canada you are required to purchase a starter kit when you sign up).
While you are not required to sell to anyone as a Wholesale Member, being a Wholesale Member includes the option of starting a home business with Young Living. The company founder, D. Gary Young, wanted to give people a way of getting the oils for free. By sharing the oils, and referring friends to the company, you can be paid commission for your word-of-mouth advertising. This is optional; there is no requirement or expectation. To get paid commission, you must be placing an Essential Rewards order each month of at least 100 PV. (1 PV = approx. 1 US Dollar)
Essential Rewards Further Explained:
Just like some stores let you collect points, Young Living also has a points system that rewards you with free products. It’s called Essential Rewards. It is optional. There are some guidelines: You agree to purchase 50PV or more each month. That’s easy to do if you start encorporating Young Living products into your everyday life. Simply re-direct your drug store budget and get higher quality products from Young Living.
Your rewards are as follows:
Months 1 to 6, 10% of the PV you spend goes into your Essential Rewards account.
Months 7 – 12, 15% of the PV you spend goes into your Essential Rewards account.
Months 13 and on, 20% of the PV you spend goes into your Essential Rewards account.
These Essential Rewards points can be put towards future purchases from Young Living.
3 Month Essential Rewards Gift :
Enroll in Essential Rewards and maintain a minimum 100 PV order for three consecutive months and you will receive a FREE Home Diffuser*, valued at $86.50 wholesale! That’s just one more way Essential Rewards is rewarding you!
After 3 months, mail or e-mail the voucher found at this link to receive your FREE Home Diffuser.
9 Month Essential Rewards Gift :
The rewards keep on coming! Continue on Essential Rewards, maintaining a minimum 100 PV order for nine consecutive months and receive a free AromaLux Atomizing Diffuser, valued at $149.50 wholesale!
After nine months, mail or email the voucher found at this link to receive your FREE AromaLux.
Is there a monthly order minimum?
Unless you have signed up for Essential Rewards (which is a great way to save money) there is no monthly minimum. There is a yearly minimum of 50PV to maintain your distributorship (which means continuing to get the wholesale pricing). That’s it! Otherwise, if you don’t order at least 50PV per year, your account will simply go dormant.
I don’t want to sell anything. Do I have to sell Young Living products to be a Distributor?
NO! You never have to sell a thing. You are not required to have a business, and can simply distribute to yourself.
I’m considering having a Young Living home business. What would my start-up investment be? Also, do I need to carry an inventory?
The recommended investment is $173 (Canadian) for thePremium Starter Kit as it is the best value for your money. You are not required to carry an inventory. Everyone orders either online or by telephone, and has products shipped directly to their home.
How do I use these oils!
Oils are so simple to use. Once you have a little education, you’ll find your own creative ways to use them throughout the day for physical and emotional support and you will receive information with your starter kit to help get you going. Also, as a Young Living Member you will be able to sign-up to a members only website called Oil Testimonials (www.oil-testimonials.com) which I find helpful to learn about how to use the different oils.
I know it might seem like a lot of information, but once you get going it will get easier and you and your family can benefit from the natural goodness of Young Living products.
When the new school year started and Son didn't seem to have any problems going to school I was ecstatic. Last year was a different story. Almost every morning we had to convince him that school was good and he would have fun...no tears necessary. His comfort with going to school this year was short lived unfortunately. He soon began clinging to us, crying, and begging us not to go. Inevitably a teacher would come help by pealing him off of us, taking his hand and finding a distraction. It wasn't a pretty picture and definitely not comfortable for any of us. Several weeks into this heartbreaking routine, I said to myself, there must be away to make this a better experience for Son. At that time I had one bottle of Young Living essential oils that I had bought months before for myself - Peace & Calming.
The scent of this oil is gorgeous and I tend to use it before bed when I'm having troubles sleeping. Well, I thought that if it helps me, it might just help son to "peace out" about going to school. So I applied a bit (diluted in olive oil for his sensitive skin) to the back of his neck and had him take a big whiff of it. He LOVES the smell of it and lucky for me, this works to my advantage since he normally won't let me put anything on him that resembles a lotion. I didn't tell him why I was putting it on him just in case it didn't work and so that we didn't have a placebo effect. I wanted to know if it would really help. I crossed my fingers and off we went to school. That day, more than 4 weeks ago, was the last day he struggled with separation anxiety at school drop off. We walked into the yard and instead of clinging to my leg and looking up with sad desperate eyes, a big lip, and tears running down his cheeks, he gave me a quick hug and then said "bye mama" and ran off to play. I was amazed, but not sold that the oils had worked. A part of me thought that it was a fluke and that the next day would be a return of his separation anxiety. We have been applying the oils every morning, and every morning it's the same "bye mama". I'm now convinced that this oil is our saviour. I only wish that I had figured this out last year. I have since invested in several other Young Living essential oils to help with other various health concerns and I am so very pleased with the results. Before jumping in with both feet, I did my research on the company and the testimonials of others. This, combined with our experience is what sold me on the quality of Young Living products.
