So you’re thinking about essential oils? 

I am so glad you are here! Did you know a single drop of oil can uplift your mood, support your immune system, enhance the flavor of your favorite recipes or a daily glass of water, and so much more.

I didn’t know those things either and was rather skeptical in the beginning. I had so much to learn with very few responses to learn from.

I have used Young Living Essential Oils for my family and me since 2010. I have always been dazzled by the little bottles of oils in health food stores and flea markets. I would stop and look but keep on walking because I didn’t know how to use them.

I couldn’t wrap my mind around how those little bottles of liquid that they were a big deal. They all seemed the same to me.

I started digging and discovered not all oils are the same. Actually, they are very different. In the food market, there are oodles of rules and in the natural health companies, that’s not the case. They are labeled as “personal care”

Get this: it is totally legal for companies to claim a bottle of oil contains “100% pure essential oil “ (like frankincense or lavender) but it only ACTUALLY has to contain 5% of the said oil. Therefore the other 95% could be chemical extenders, artificial fragrances, fillers, or who knows what else. But the bottle may say 100% pure…but it definitely won’t be. Appalling and infuriating, I know. But also the truth.

I started my oils journey with a company who had all that figured out already. Young Living has a  ‘Seed to Seal’ promise. This means they do it all! From the seed that grows the plant to the harvesting to the distillation to the sealing of the bottle.

I had a lot to learn when I ordered my kit of oils. I had to read on how to apply them, but I didn’t have to worry about the integrity of the company.

I ordered my Young Living Essential Oil kit because I was able to get the basic 12 oils PLUS a super awesome diffuser. I had all I needed to get started. I also wanted to get the 24% discount because … why not!

People ask me about oils all the time but so often are afraid to dive in to use them because of the fear of the unknown on how to use them and for what purpose plus all the information overload that is on the internet.

Who do you believe! Right?!

Like so many things in life, you get what you pay for when it comes to essential oils. Could you go to the health food store or hit Amazon for some cheaper “pure” oils?

Sure you could. But why would you use a product you know nothing about except what the small description says on the bottle. If you are looking to use oils – it is for a healthy option. Your health is worth the better version over the cheap altered oils.

Honestly say save your money since they likely won’t do much for you beyond smelling nice (which is nice, I won’t lie). But if you want to have oils in your life that truly last because they are so concentrated and a little REALLY goes a long way, plus the benefits your mind, body, and soul.

I hope that I can help you with this article to relax and give them a try as I did. Fast forward to today, I never leave home without 5-6 oils in my purse at all times.

When I travel, I have a kit of 25 that go on every single trip in their own little case.

Let’s talk about Young Living Essential Oil Membership Types. Ask Angela Brooks

This type of membership allows you to easily order the oils and products that you need at retail pricing, plus tax & shipping – sort of like purchasing from your own private store. THIS DOES NOT GET YOU THE WHOLESALE PRICES.

Independent Distributor as a Customer: 24% discount buys at wholesale pricing – no fees, but there is a $50/year purchase requirement to keep your account active. You must purchase one of the starter kits to set up your account. You only have to purchase one kit of your choice. From products for cleaning your home, make-up, essential oils, NingXia Red our yummy antioxidant.

Personally, I think the best kit to get started with is the Premium Starter Kit. ($165.00). You can read what is in the kit here.

Benefits: SAVE 24% off of the retail pricing.NO Membership feesNO yearly dues NO ObligationNO Selling Required.

If you wish to keep your wholesale pricing, the only requirement is to make a single purchase of $50 worth of products per year. (50PV). Which is simple to do. If you don’t meet that one requirement you can still place orders on your account but you would lose the discount and no one wants to lose the 24% off.

Young Living Oil Essential Reward – Point System

What is the Essential Rewards Loyalty Program with Angela Brooks

If you want to earn a commission check you will have to set up the ESSENTIAL REWARD program to be eligible for payment. Or if you want to just get the 24% discount you use the ER (essential reward box)

Your essential reward order must be over $100 per month before shipping and handling as a business builder.

As a discount customer, you would have options each month with the promotions to get freebies added to your box when you reach the different level of required PV for that month.

Which is very easy to do as you start swapping out the products in your home from chemicals to clean Young Living products.

There are monthly promotions to help you earn free exclusively for essential reward members. As an essential reward membership, you will also earn reward points that can be redeemed for free products minus the shipping cost. These points are great to grow your own personal stock of products or to send new customers a product for them to try.

Or maybe as you build your own team of members the points are nice to send gifts.

NOTE: You DO NOT have to sign up for Essential Rewards. You can skip this step join later or never at all. {If you know that you’ll be ordering oils on a regular basis, I would encourage this option to save money and earn freebies from Young Living!}
