I have often been reminded that you should get your income from several different income streams. Ours flows from a variety of avenues and I recently discovered one more. Young Living Essential Oils. Yep. I had so many friends using them and telling me about how amazing they were that I had to give them a try. Now, my family uses them and I want to tell you about them as well.
People have actually been using essential oils for thousands of years. They are not a new fad or passing trend. Social media has simply helped spread the message and teach others about their use. Therefore we see it more often. Essential oils are created to work with our bodies for healing and purification.
There are plenty of places you can buy essential oils, but we have found Young Living to be a trusted source and a pioneer in bringing the use of therapeutic oils to the United States. Plus, they offer a wide range of products beyond the oils.
Create a Business
Whether you are a mom looking for a way to make a little money while at home, or a blogger wanting to add to your income revenue online, there is an incredible earning potential from Young Living.
How to Sign Up and Join the Team
If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below:
- Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.
- Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices.
- Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2544658 (so that I can send you your package!)
- If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes). They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.
- Select which starter kit you want to get. My recommendation would be the Premium Starter Kit (it’s a great way to try the basic oils yourself). The oils included in the Everyday Oils box (10 – 5 ml bottles) are the oils I use almost every single day! You can even choose your own essential oil diffuser!
- During the sign up process, please note that Step 3 is optional. The Young Living Essential Rewards (ER) program is great. It allows you to save on shipping costs and earn credit for every ER purchase along with monthly bonuses. ER is also mentioned below in relation to earning additional bonus oil on this purchase. You can always sign up for this voluntary program later if you want to think about the idea more.
- Go through the checkout process.
- Congratulations on signing up! Contact me with any questions or let me know how I can help you get started in your new business venture!
BONUS Step 9 (COMPLETELY Optional)
If you would like to earn a BONUS essential oil, then you need to get your order total up to 190 PV (different products have different point values). If you get the $150 Premium Starter Kit then you’ll automatically have 100 point value… then you’ll just need 90 more points to get the bonus oil. For example, you could grab an extra bottle of Thieves Oil at 33.75 points, 15 ml bottle of Lavender at 23.5 points, 15 ml bottle of Lime at 11 points, and the 14.4 ounces of Thieves Household Cleaner at 22 points (just pour one capful of the concentrated Thieves cleaning solution into a spray bottle and it lasts for a really long time!) All of those items will bring your total points up to $190.25 which will qualify you to get the BONUS oil! (This step is completely optional!)
If you would like to earn TWO free BONUS essential oils this month, then you can go ahead and enroll in the Essential Rewards section (the Step 3 on the Young Living signup page). Young Living has put together a great rewards program for those who think they will be ordering regularly. For this first month, you will need to choose one of the Essential Rewards kits that are offered on the sign-up page, but in the future, you can change up your order each month. Most people get the Wellness Essential Rewards Kit when they sign up so that they can try out the Ningxia Red (an AMAZING juice blend filled with antioxidants from the Ningxia Wolfberry), and other great YL products like their exclusive Slique blend to help with weight management!
There’s absolutely no obligation to do the Essential Rewards program, but if you would like to get both of the free oils available this month and you know you’ll be ordering regularly, then it’s a great program to maximize your savings. (This step is completely optional!)
IMPORTANT: Please don’t forget to sign up with the sponsor ID and enroller ID as #2544658

Frequently Asked Questions:
Does signing up obligate me to sell Young Living?
Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.
If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).
Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?
It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it? I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.
Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.
Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.
With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.
I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.
How will I know which oils to use for what?
There are reference guides and even apps available where you can look up almost anything in it and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.
Does Young Living only sell essential oils?
The answer to this one was surprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.
