How to purchase Young Living essential oils
Essential oils play an important part in my personal life and my work as a health coach.
I use essential oils to make super simple home – cleaning products, perfumes, moisturisers, to diffuse toxins out of my home environment, (and make it smells sooo good!), in cooking and so much more. I just love them!
WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL?
An essential oil is a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic odour of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. They are found in leaves, barks, stems and leaves and other parts of plants and which possess the properties of each particular plant. Young Living essential oils are extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come.
WHY I LOVE YOUNG LIVING OILS OVER OTHERS ON THE MARKET.
Why I chose Young Living (YL) over other oils, and what I love about them is their ‘Seed to Seal’ quality assurance and the passion and purpose with which Gary Young founded the company – One little plot of land and a big dream over 20 years ago and now many farms around the world. YL follow a five-step process which selects and plants seeds, farms, distills and bottles with vigorous independent and internal testing to produce the purest, most authentic essential oils. YL own many of their own farms and have their own exclusive partner farms (ie farms that produce only for Young Living to adhere to the seed to seal process, they test and bottle on site, no pesticides are used on their farms and my favourite transparency fact? A Young Living member can visit any of the farms at any time. When it comes time to harvest, they will be testing a plant every two hours with micro samples, to assess the level of plant actives, so that they harvest at the absolute most active time of the plant, resulting in the highest ORAC scores possible, with that testing commitment. You can smell the difference on the nose with a simple side by side sniff test.
HOW TO BECOME A WHOLESALE MEMBER (THIS IS THE BEST OPTION FOR YOU!)
Buying wholesale is how you will access the best price possible for the highest quality pure essential oils, saving 24% on the retail price. The wholesale account options are:
1. Essential Rewards (aka ER)
2. Basic Wholesale
I recommend Essential Rewards to start with. You can always drop down to Basic Wholesale later. By joining Essential Rewards it means you waive the $48 membership fee for the Basic Starter Kit, and you get a little kit free with your Premium Starter Kit.
WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL REWARDS (ER) ACCOUNT?
ER is a program where you spend a minimum of 50 PV (stands for ‘Personal Volume’ but it’s easier to think of it as ‘Points Value’) per month (think of it as one PV is equal to one US dollar). With the Essential Rewards program, you will earn points toward future product redemptions which you get for free, so it’s how you quickly accrue rewards points to redeem FREE essential oils any time you like. Think of it like Frequent Flyers.
What do you get for 50PV per month?
Anything you want. You change it every month in a simple online virtual office, private to you. Your order could include a beautiful oil or two and an all – natural foaming hand soap OR a Thieves home cleaner refill (LOVE that stuff, works out to be 0.90c per spray bottle diluted as an all purpose cleaner and completely natural) or a bath gel OR couple of oils, a Thieves Bar Soap and an aluminium – free deodorant for example. The options are endless!
Bonus Essential Rewards – spending 100PV or more per month
If you decide you’re a serious fan and increase your monthly order to 100PV or greater, you have bonus essential rewards kits with amazing bundle offers, loyalty oils – a random freebie in your order every 3 months – which are delivered to you at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months as surprise freebies! This is also the order level required for you to earn commissions when your circle signs up with you – but rest assured you’ll never be pressured by me to ‘start a business’.
WHAT IS A BASIC WHOLESALE ACCOUNT?
Basic wholesale account means you spend 50PV in a whole year in order to keep your wholesale pricing. This means you literally only need to purchase 1-3 oils in total for the whole year to access that 24% discount! If you decide you want to drop down from the ER account to a Basic Wholesale Account once you’ve got your oil collection happening, and have managed to avoid the joining fee/paying for the starter kit, then it’s a simple phone call to head office and they’ll happily change this for you.
WHICH PREMIUM STARTER KIT SHOULD I BUY?
One of my favourites is the kit with the Dewdrop Diffuser (pictured above) which is a great low cost option. The diffuser is lovely and quiet, gives you the option of having the light on or off, it diffuses for 4 hours and automatically switches off. It’s perfect if you have a medium sized room and if you like popping off to sleep with something diffusing but don’t want it on all night (Hello Camomile, Valerian and Lavender!)
The code for the Dewdrop Starter Kit is 546502 and it’s $259 (valued at $380 +)
Or if you really want to treat yourself, you can’t go past the Aria, made of solid American oak and a beautiful glass dome. Also great for a medium sized room.
The code for the Aria Premium starter kit is 546502 and it’s $419 (valued at $550+)
There are other premium starter kits which you can look at once you’re signing yourself up and choosing, but the ones mentioned above are my favourite options.
