Why I Chose Young Living Essential Oils & How You Can Too

As some of you know, I have struggled in the past with a myriad of health problems. I was desperate to find something that worked to bring relief, but ignored my good friend’s gentle advice and turned instead to pharmaceutical drugs, in hopes they would be what I needed to be myself again.

When prescription medication left me worse off, I turned to researching natural ways to aid in easing the pain and discomfort I felt daily. I still didn’t think of essential oils, but looked in to nutritional supplements and vitamins. It took a sinus and tooth infection, for me to consider oil pulling, and Ray came home with not only Coconut Oil, but also Clove oil for the pain that no OTC meds would curb, I began to seriously think about essential oils.

Why I chose Young Living

I saw a friend’s post about using oils in her son’s room to help him get to sleep at night. I was hooked! There are so many different brands of essential oils, so I began researching my options. I found that Young Living was the company that I wanted to look in to further, based on several friends’ testimonials.

One of the many reasons why I decided on Young Living was because of their commitment to quality. I wanted an oil that I could feel safe ingesting by infusing my water and using the oils as part of my oil pulling routine.

When it comes to our essential oils, Young Living sets the standard for purity and authenticity. We carefully monitor every step of the production of our oils from beginning to end through our unique Seed to Seal process, ensuring the purity of each essential oil and protecting nature’s living energy in every bottle. This unsurpassed commitment to quality means that you can be confident that the Young Living essential oils and oil-infused products you use in your home are safe and effective.

So, I signed up as a distributor with Young Living, simply so I could purchase the oils at a 24% discount. I decided that if the products worked for me and my family I would tell y’all about them, but I really had (and still have) no desire to create a business out of it.

I started with the Basic Starter Kit (but quickly I wished I had purchased the Premium Starter Kit instead). I started out by diffussing the oil samples and using the Stress Away blend daily. The Everyday Oils Kit came next and I promptly began using all of the different oils on myself and my kiddos daily. I was added to a wonderful private Facebook group, got many questions answered, began doing research on books and literature I could purchase, and devoured many Young Living testimonial sites.

Now, the part you’ve been waiting for…

Try Essential Oils

How to order Essential Oils:

1. Head over to the sign up page. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is filled in. This will ensure you get all product at the 24% discount!

2. Select the kit that you want.  Like I said, I got the $40 one just to get my feet wet, and you can too, BUT I would highly reccomend you go for the $150 Premium Kit. You’ll end up wanting all of those oils anyway, and this will save you some money!

3. If you would like to earn bonus oils and other great oily goodies each month, choose an Essential Rewards kit to add to your order. These kits will be placed on a monthly auto-ship, but you may change up the order each month, if you desire. (Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions!)

4. Enter your payment info and check out. (If you decide not to include an ER order, you will need to click “next” to place your order for the Premium Kit.)

5. Look for an email from me with more information about how to join the Oily Families Facebook group I talked about and how to receive your free goodies!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Christine. I would like to order these oils. When I began following the steps you outlined I became nervous when it asked for my social security number/tax I.D. I was wondering if it is required to sign up as a distributor, or if we can sign up as a retailer and get the same options? I understand there is a discount, but I am wondering if that is the only difference.

If you still suggest signing up as a distributor, what happens next after the product is shipped to me?

Thank you of your help. I hope you are all enjoying your new home. I am from Rocklin and met your boys at St. Matthew VBS. I have been enjoying your blog ever since.

Thanks again. Karin

Hi Karin,

It is necessary to give your social security number to sign up as a distributor, unless you have a tax ID #. Becoming a distributor entitles you to the 24% discount and allows you the potential to earn free products and make money when sharing the products with others. (I assure you, Young Living is a company that values the privacy of their distributors and the SSN is only used by them if you begin making money.) As I stated in my post, I didn’t sign on to sell, but as I share my testimony with others the product sells itself and I am benefiting now monetarily, as well.

After you sign up and place your first order, you may then order again at any time. The Essential Rewards allows you to choose items each month that you earn points from. You can then turn those points into dollars and order free items. (The ER program is not mandatory, but highly recommended!)

I’d be happy to chat some more if you’d like to email me at [email protected] :)

Hello! I am wanting to follow your advice and give essential oils a try (for anxiety mostly) but am wondering if I can purchase through you, without having to sign up myself?

I’m interested in some oils to help my 3 year old son with autism. Is there any way I can get a sample of some of these oils before committing to buying a whole bottle of them?

I have just started using YL E O this summer and I love them, but I am not sure how and where to apply for the different ailments or where can I go to find out….I learned that if I put lavender behind my ears and on my pillow it will help me sleep and it does. Is there a book or anything that can help me? I would appreciate any help.
