One of the topics I'm e-mailed about most frequently is how to save money on healthcare and to be honest for a while there I really didn't have a good answer. I was personally feeling the effects of rising healthcare costs and frequent trips to the doctor's office. Expensive insurance premiums, deductibles, lab bills etc. - they were all eating away at my budget.
How I Use Essential Oils
It wasn't until experiencing a health issue while at a conference earlier this year that I was introduced to something that is now part of my everyday life - Young Living essential oils. Looking back, I don't know how I survived without them as they are now my go-to for cold and flu symptoms, more restful sleep, headaches, reliving stress, balancing my wacky hormone levels and a host of more minor issues like cuts, burns, bumps, scrapes etc. Just during the past couple of months alone I've saved goodness knows how much money by learning to care for my body using essential oils. They have hands-down been the best investment that I've ever made in my life and are now a part of my everyday life for far more than just healthcare - even cleaning my house!
Young Living Essential Oils is the only brand of oils that I use and recommend. They are 100% therapeutic grade and far higher quality than anything you'll find on the grocery store shelves. Make sure to check out my post on why I chose Young Living essential oils.
Skeptical about Oils? I was too!
Ask anyone that knows me well and they will tell you that I'm probably the biggest skeptic that has ever lived, so as you can imagine, it was not easy for me to accept that these little bottles of oils could make such a tremendous difference in my health. It wasn't until after I received my starter kit and began personally experiencing and witnessing the health sustaining powers of essential oils.
Pretty much overnight I was transformed into a oils believer after being able to use them to resolve health concern after health concern! Now, I feel like I'm doing a disservice by not telling everyone I know about Young Living. In fact, within just a few weeks of sharing about Young Living for the first time here on Bargain Blessings, the positive stories started to pour into my inbox and they have not stopped since!
Become a Member and Save 24%!
Ready to get started with essential oils? The best way to purchase oils and to get the support that you need to be successful while using them is to become a wholesale member of Young Living. A wholesale membership is the only option that will give you 24% off retail price and it doesn't even obligate you to make future purchases if you don't want to!
In addition to these awesome savings, you will have the option of sharing the oils with your friends and family, which means you can earn monthly commissions that could pay for your own oil use! You will also receive promotions for free oils. In no way are you required to run a Young Living business as a wholesale member – but it is an option, if you like.
Selecting Your Starter Kit
There are several starter kits available through your Young Living wholesale membership, but the best value bar far is the Premium Starter Kit. It comes with $329 worth of products for just $150! That's over 50% off! The premium kit comes with everything you'll need to get started with essential oils: 11 of Young Living's most popular oils, a Home Diffuser, 10 popular oil samples, 2 NingXia Red samples and 1 Roller Fitment. Watch my video above for all the details of what you'll receive in this kit.
Young Living also has starter kits for $40 and $75, but in my opinion, it is very worth it to get the Premium Starter kit. I've heard from several readers who went for the smaller starter kits and are now regretting not getting the premium one right away.
Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your mailing information and request a password.
*Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices. This will allow you to save 24% off all your oils!
*Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 1795378 (so that I can send you your freebies)!
*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). The reason you are asked to list your social security number is for tax purposes. If you make over $600 per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail, as is required by law. Young Living will never share this info with anyone.
Select your starter kit. My recommendation would be one of the Premium Starter Kit ($150 or $160). Those both come with the oils that I use every single day and of course will qualify you for all of the freebies that I mention above!
Step 3 in the sign-up process is totally optional. If you would like to select an Essential Rewards kit, my favorite is the Thieves Essential Rewards kit...these are products that I use all day long every day.
*I’ll send over an email with more details on Essential Rewards after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order, plus save you on shipping costs).
Monthly bonus oils (optional). If you would like to earn 2 bonus oils this month, then you'll need to get your order total up to 190 PV (different products have different point values).
*When you order the Premium Starter Kit (recommended in stem 2 above), you will automatically have 100 points and will just need 90 more points to get this month's bonus oils. Here is an example of how you can reach those 90 extra points with a few of my favorite products:
-(1) Thieves Oil 15ml: 33.75 points
-(1) Lavender Oil 15ml: 23.5 points
-(1) Lime Oil 15ml: 11 points
-(1) Thieves Household Cleaner 14.4oz: 22 points (this stuff is awesome and lasts forever)
Ordering the above additional items will bring your points up to 190.25 and will qualify you to receive two BONUS oils! Again, this step is totally optional.
The bonus oils for the month of may are Lemon and Citrus Fresh...both perfect for summer! Lemon has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant. It is delightfully refreshing in water and may be beneficial for the skin. Lemon may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons. Jean Valnet MD estimated that it takes 3,000 lemons to produce one kilo of oil...wow!
Citrus Fresh™ is a relaxing, calming blend loved by children and adults alike. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it supports the immune system and overall health while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy. It also works as an air purifier.
Finally, don't forget to confirm your order! The tool will log you in (or you can go directly to YoungLiving.org), allow you to confirm your order again and you'll need to enter your payment information again. Don't miss this step or your order will not be confirmed!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to sell Young Living Products to be a Wholesale member? I really just want to use the oils for myself.
Nope. There is zero obligation to sell anything even with a Wholesale membership. However, if you do change your mind, or if you end up with a friend or family member that wants to get started (this happens a lot) make sure to let me know so that I can help you get your referral link so you'll get credit for them signing up.
Is their a monthly purchase requirement to have a Wholesale Account?
No, not at all. You can simply order what you need when you need it.
In order to keep your account active you just need to place one 50PV (Point Value) minimum order per year. If you happen to miss that deadline you can easily reactivate your account by calling Young Living Customer Care and placing a 100PV order. Easy as that!
Are there any other ways to save money on the oils?
Yes! Young Living has an incredible program called Essential Rewards that I used to earn FREE oils every month! The program also gives you reduced shipping and more.
Young Living also has monthly promotions and sales which enable you to build up your oil stockpile on a budget - woohoo!
Ok, that sounds neat? How do I join Essential Rewards?
Once you've signed up for your Wholesale Young Living Account using the steps above, let me know and I'd be happy to help you get started with Essential Rewards.
What kind of support do I get after joining Young Living through you?
Don't worry - I will not leave you hanging or wondering how to get started! When you join as a Wholesale Member through me you'll get access to the private Oily Family Facebook room.
