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


How I Got Started with Essential Oils and Why I Share


About a year and a half ago now my friend Rachel shared Young Living’s Essential Oils with me. I was super hesitant at first…”would this investment be worth it?”, “do they really work?”, “will I have the support I need to learn how to use them?”…all of those are questions that I had before I decided to take the “oily leap”. I’m happy to tell you now that the answer to each of them has been overwhelmingly YES! Our family took that oily leap and have never looked back.



For us, the transition to a toxin and chemical free home has been gradual over the past couple of years and Young Living has been probably the largest part of that. Getting the harmful ingredients out of our home and replacing them with natural products that come straight from the plants that God created for our use has been life changing. It’s a journey that I’m so glad that I decided to venture into and one that I will never turn back on. I’m healthier and more energetic than I’ve ever been before in my life and that is something that I could never put a price tag on.

How I Save Money Using Essential Oils

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 our health – even cleaning my house!

I did a lot of research before choosing to get started and Young Living 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. If you’re going to be putting something on and in your body you want to make sure you are getting the absolute highest quality possible and that is exactly what Young Living gives us through their Seed to Seal Quality Commitment. There are some things that the old “you get what you pay for” saying holds true and I don’t know of any better example than Essential Oils – the quality of your oils is just not something you want to take a risk on, it’s not worth it. Make sure to check out my post on why I chose Young Living essential oils.

***Bonus October Freebies (Only Good through 10/31/15)***

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! This deal is good only through Saturday, October 31st!

Purchase a Premium Starter Kit by using the steps below and I’ll send you all of these goodies:

-Over $25 in Amazing Reference Materials to teach you how to use your oils – I’m promise, they are incredible!
-a set of Essential Oil Labels ($3.95 value) to keep your oils organized!
*Your freebies will be mailed out by me personally 20 days after you order your kit. You must be currently enrolled under me (Bargain Blessings, member ID 1795378) to qualify for the freebies.

And you’ll also get…

-Access to the exclusive The Oil Nation Facebook groups
-Introductory email course to walk you through all Essential Oil basics
-Access to our exclusive Facebook classes and events

If that’s not an amazing deal –  I don’t know what is. :) Happy October from me to you!!

*This promotion is available for US, Canada and military residents only.


step-1Head over to the Young Living page here and fill in your information.

*Be sure the “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 and to get in on this deal!

*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, Young Living is required by law to ask for it) 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 is a 20 year old company and will never share this info with anyone.

*You will create a 4-digit PIN number that customer service will need to access your account should you ever need to call them. Make sure to make this something you will remember or write it down. 

step-2Select your Premium Starter Kit starter kit and diffuser. The Premium Kits with the Home and Dewdrop Diffusers are $160, the Premium Kit with the Bamboo Diffuser is $170 and the kit that comes with the Aria Diffuser is $260. All of the diffuser options are amazing, so in my opinion you cannot go wrong with any of them! Watch my video here for more information on the options:

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! :)



How to Earn More Freebies (OPTIONAL). If you would like to earn a free oil, 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) Orange Oil 15ml for 12.75 points (so good for you, delicious in water and wonderful to diffuse)
-(1) RC Oil 5ml for 10.25 points (my favorite for respiratory support and a must have for fall and winter) 
-(1) Thieves Household Cleaning Concentrate 14.4oz for 22 points (this stuff is awesome and lasts forever – I’ve been using the same bottle for 10 months now and it’s the only cleaner we use in our home…I actually like cleaning now)
-(1) Oregano 15ml for 27.75 points (you will want this one for fall and winter – you can cook with it too!)
-(1) Thieves Spray 3pk for 23.75 points (I will not travel with this stuff!)

Ordering the above additional items will bring your points up to 191.00 and will qualify you to receive one BONUS oil (5ml of Clove)! Clove is a fabulous oil to have on hand for this time of year!!

Again, this step is totally optional. The free oil will automatically be added to your order. You do not need to add them to your cart. Keep in mind that the Thieves oil in the image above is only good for members that are enrolled in the optional Essential Rewards program, but the other promotions are available to everyone! If you have any questions on how this works, please email me at jennie (at)

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 or pressure 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?
