Get Started with Essential Oils: How to Use Them and Where to Buy Them


One of the topics I'm e-mailed about most frequently is how to save money on healthcare and for many years I really didn't really 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 my oil set. It has 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.

Why I'm a believer...

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 began personally experiencing the health the power of these oils that I fell in love with them.

I was transformed into a oils believer pretty quickly 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!


How to Save a Ton of Money On Oils

Ready to get started with essential oils too? 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 any future purchases if you don't want to! I repeat - there is absolutely NO obligation to make any future purchases. Also, the best part of being a wholesale member is that you get access to Young Living's Premium Starter Kit which is an absolutely incredible deal on everything you need to get started!

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: the Everyday Oils Collection with 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.


Bonus Freebies

Now this is Bargain Blessings and you know we are all about freebies around here, so I've decided to add a few to sweeten your starter kit deal even more for the month of August!

Purchase a Premium Starter Kit by using the steps below and I'll send you a spiral bound 448 page Reference Guide for Essential Oils ($15.95 value) AND a set of Essential Oil Labels ($3.95 value) to keep your oils organized, and a set of Quick Reference Guides ($4.95 value)! You'll also get access to our incredible Facebook groups with over 10,000 members to support you as you start and continue on your oily journey!

If that's not an amazing deal -  I don't know what is. :)

*This promotion is available for US residents only.


step-1Head 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.

step-2Select 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-3Step 3 in the sign-up process is totally optional. Young Living offers an awesome program called Essential Rewards that allows us to earn free oils by earning points on products that we want to buy anyway. It also gives us reduced shipping!

*Watch this video which explains Essential Rewards and then either select one of their pre-made kits or choose to skip Essential Rewards for now. You can always sign-up at a later date! :)


Monthly bonus oils (optional). If you would like to earn 2 free oils, 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 (from step 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.

I'm SO excited about this month's promotion! White Fir is not sold individually, so this is an awesome way to pick it up for FREE!

step-5Finally, don't forget to confirm your order! The tool will log you in (or you can go directly to, 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 use 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. This community has thousands of members, is a perfect place to ask questions and is filled with tons of awesome information.

I have another question. What is the best way for me to ask it?

Once we have signed up do we need to give you any information in order to receive the extra freebies?


2 Jennie August 20, 2014 at 5:49 PM

Hi Jessica~ Welcome to the world of essential oils! :) I just sent you your welcome e-mail with all the detains on the bonus freebies.


3 Lorna August 7, 2014 at 8:45 PM

Looking over the info on what is included in the premium starter kit it only mentions 1, 5 ml bottle of oil and the rest are only sample packets….is that really right? Or do they actually come with the full size bottles like you mention in your post?


4 Jennie August 7, 2014 at 9:20 PM

Hi Lorna~ The Premium Starter kit comes with everything that I mention above – full sized bottles. Make sure to watch my video for an item by item visual of what you’ll get. :)


5 becky August 4, 2014 at 6:21 PM

6 Tracy Cachine August 2, 2014 at 12:33 AM

7 Melissa August 1, 2014 at 7:57 AM

I just bought the starter kit and some other things last night to catch the deal in July. I emailed you to make sure I did it right – hope to hear back soon!


8 Kristi July 30, 2014 at 6:14 AM

Just ordered my starter kit! I can’t wait for it to get here, thanks for the great deal! I love EO!


9 Karen July 25, 2014 at 4:32 PM

Hi Jennie.
I just placed my order but I’m short the 190 points to qualify. Can I place a secon order ans still qualify?


10 Jennie July 25, 2014 at 4:35 PM

Hi Karen,

The easiest way to do this is to this is to contact Young Living and ask them over the phone or through live chat to edit your order. Here is their contact us page: Just let me know if you need any help. :)


11 Ashley July 25, 2014 at 11:23 AM

Hi! Just ordered my starter kit and am sooo excited! I’ve been researching young living for about a month and your promotion sealed the deal :) Thanks so much!


12 Jennie July 25, 2014 at 3:47 PM

Yay! You’re going to love it Ashley. I’ll be sending out your welcome e-mail here shortly, so make sure to watch for it. :)


13 Jessica July 24, 2014 at 2:17 AM

Thanks for the great deal! I have been researching EOs for quite some time and this offer finally convinced me to take the plunge! I can’t wait to get my kit and start using my oils! Thanks again! Be blessed :)


14 Jennie July 24, 2014 at 9:51 AM

Oh you’re going to love it Jessica!! I’m so excited for you. :) I’ll be sending off your welcome e-mail here shortly, so make sure to watch for that.


15 Joan Ray July 22, 2014 at 9:42 AM

Hi Jennie. I live in South Africa and we do not have social security numbers. Do you supply overseas customers. What is the cost of shipping to SA?


16 Jennie July 22, 2014 at 9:46 AM

Hi Joan. :) Young Living does ship to South Africa! You can just select “South Africa” as your country on the order screen. I will need to check on the shipping cost for you. I’ll let you know as soon as I find out.


17 Jennie July 22, 2014 at 11:17 PM

Hi Joan~ I just got off of the phone with Young Living. They do ship to South Africa. Unfortunately they do not have a distribution center there, so shipping is quite pricey at $63.10. I also want to mention that I’m only able to ship the guidebooks and labels out to residents of the US, but I still could provide you with the Amazon/Paypal gift card if you do decide to get a kit. :) I hope that helps!


18 Tracy Cachine July 21, 2014 at 9:01 PM

Hi Jennie, This looks like a fantastic offer… and I am having surgery mid-August
I am disabled and get paid by the month (1st or 2nd..) Would you consider giving me until then a day or two past the offer ends to order? like Aug. 2nd? Just wondering.. also does the offer come with the actual bottles of oils? *Guess I’ll go back and view
your video see.. I am seriously thinking about this offer sounds really AWESOME!! Fell free to email me. Thanks Jennie my money is very limited but I really want/need this! Have a blessed day! Tracy~***


19 Jennie July 21, 2014 at 9:25 PM

Hi Tracy~ I just send you an e-mail to answer your questions. :)


20 Tracy Godwin July 21, 2014 at 5:26 AM

Jennie, thanks so much for the awesome bonus offer! I’ve been pondering for awhile now, and your bonus offer was the incentive I needed! Can’t wait to receive the book, so I can do more research and get the most out of the premium kit!!


21 Julia Brown July 19, 2014 at 12:34 PM

I would really like to get in on this deal, I also have been thinking about it for awhile and love the way you have showed the kit and even given bonus incentives, but I notice the deal says from July 3 to July 31 , but the commentstee’s are all much older… is this deal still currently active?


22 Jennie July 19, 2014 at 5:02 PM

Hi Julia. Each month there is a different promotion, so that is why you see the comments from past dates. :) The July promotion is as good as it gets, so I would definitely recommend getting in on it if you’ve been wanting a kit. If you have any other questions just let me know. :)


23 Remey June 21, 2014 at 9:54 PM

I just ordered my kit! Thank you so much for this great deal!


24 Jen June 20, 2014 at 4:21 PM

For getting an EIN to become a wholesale member, what is the answer to this question…
“What type of legal structure is applying for an EIN?”
Sole proprieter, partnerships, corporations, LLC, estate, etc?
Thank you!


25 Jennie June 20, 2014 at 5:19 PM

Hi Jen~ You would want to select “Sole Proprietor” for that item if it’s just you as an individual and you don’t have an established company or anything. Disclosure: I’m not a CPA…but if it were me that is what I would do. :)


26 Anna June 19, 2014 at 4:31 PM

Hey Jennie….I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for introducing my family to Young Living. I’ve been using my kit for a month now and it is now my favorite deal that I have ever gotten from Bargain Blessings. You’ve changed our lives for sure. Thank you so much!!


27 Jennie June 19, 2014 at 4:34 PM

Oh my goodness, you are so welcome Anna! This makes me so happy to read! :)


28 Teresa Ellis June 11, 2014 at 8:58 PM

I have been interested in EO for awhile now
And love your offer,but am concerned about giving out my
Social security no. I understand why, but just want to buy good oils
Two questions….how much is shipping and the discount
Starts after the kit is purchased ? It’s a very good value that you are
Offering.I so love EO,s!!


29 Jennie June 13, 2014 at 9:11 AM

Hi Teresa~ Shipping for the starter kit is $9.99 and yes, once you sign-up as a Wholesale member you will have access to the 24% discount included with wholesale pricing. I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions. :)


30 jacquelyn June 7, 2014 at 3:20 PM

Do you have to purchase the essential rewards kit to get the 2 free oils?


31 Jennie June 8, 2014 at 10:19 AM

Hi Jacquelyn~ Which two free oils are you talking about? Are you maybe referring to the three free oils that you get this month for spending 190PV?


32 Jacquelyn June 8, 2014 at 10:29 AM

Yes ma’am. That is what I was referring to.


33 Jennie June 8, 2014 at 4:19 PM

Gotcha. :) Yes, you would need to be a Wholesale member and get a starter kit in order to be eligible for those freebies at the 190PV level. You could always get one of the smaller starter kits ($40 or $70), but in my opinion they are not nearly as good of a value as the Premium Kit that comes with the freebies I mention in this post (the Essential Oils Guidebook and Oil Labels). I hope that helps! :)


34 Jacquelyn June 8, 2014 at 6:05 PM

Ok. Thank you. Yes I was planning on ordering a premium kit but have not been able to decide between the $150 or the $160. I just wasn’t sure if you had to also buy the essential rewards kit in order to qualify for the bonus oils.


35 Jennie June 19, 2014 at 4:33 PM

Sorry for my slow response to your comment Jacquelyn…I somehow missed it. Nope, you do not have to sign-up for Essential Rewards to qualify for the bonus oils. :) I own both the diffuser that comes with the $150 kit and the diffuser that comes with the $160 kit and they are both awesome…I think you’ll be very happy whichever way you decide to go. :)


36 Lisa May 28, 2014 at 8:49 PM

I cannot wait to get my starter kit! Thanks so much for the awesome deal! I’ve been wanting to get started with essential oils for a very long time…I’ve heard such amazing things!


37 Jennie May 28, 2014 at 11:39 PM

You’re very welcome Lisa! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the kit – it’s awesome!
