How to Order Essential Oils

Have you ever smelled fresh lavender and felt relaxed? Or tasted fresh-cut mint on a salad or smoothie and felt refreshed? Well then, you’ve experienced the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.

Want to learn more about essential oils? You’re in the right place. In fact, you can get started right now if you’re ready to order.

Essential oils have changed my life – and believe me, I was a skeptic when I was first introduced to them. How on earth could a sniff of this or a rub of that help to improve my family’s health or wellbeing? Let me explain…

Essential oils are the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. They’re basically concentrated herbs! They contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodies’ health and wellness.

There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Lavender and Lemon to exotic ones like Frankincense and Ylang Ylang, there’s an unfathomably huge range to choose from – and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses.


Why I Got Started with Essential Oils

My family and I came down with a nasty bug while traveling a few years back. Since we were not able to get in with our regular doctor, I went into the local health food store for some natural options to get us on the mend. Our experience was so wonderful! Not only did I discover natural options for wellness, but it genuinely seemed like everyone there wanted to help and make us feel better (which was so much different than the majority of my past experiences with allopathic physicians).

When we returned from our vacation, I started immersing myself in homeopathy and oils. While I had heard of Young Living’s brand, I wasn’t ready to buy an entire collection because it was a lot of money and to be honest, I wasn’t even entirely sure that they worked!  So, I started as many of you probably have, by purchasing just the basics (peppermint, lemon, tea tree, lavender) from my local co-op.  This worked okay for things like making the house smell nice, making bath salts, and body scrubs, etc. but the more I read, the more learned that I was missing out on many of the benefits of these oils. Despite the co-op oils being labeled as ‘pure therapeutic grade,’ I never felt comfortable ingesting them… and the  more I researched about the different kinds of oils, the more I was led right back to Young Living and their Seed to Seal promise. So, finally, after being on the fence for a YEAR, I decided to invest in our health and purchase my kit.

Since then, I’ve learned so much about how to use essential oils as part of my daily routine! I use them to keep my entire family above the wellness line, to keep my house clean, and for making my own beauty products (like deodorant and body lotion). Yes, really. And the best part? They save me a lot of money and are 100% non-toxic!

Why Should You Choose Young Living?

One of the most important things I’ve learned in my personal journey to healthy living is that it’s not just what something is it’s where it comes from, how it’s grown, and how it’s processed.

I did many hours of research to find an essential oil company that I felt I could trust with my family’s health. Young Living is that company. They have been around for more than 20 years and the only essential oil company that owns farms all over the world (including France, Oman, Ecuador, and here in the U.S.) and oil distilleries. In fact, Gary Young, the founder of Young Living, built the first essential oil distillery in the U.S.

Their commitment to quality is called Seed to Seal and they have set the highest standards for planting, harvesting, and distilling on the farms they own and co-op. And best of all, you can see it first hand. Young Living members are encouraged to visit the farms to experience Seed to Seal.

Why Can’t I Just Buy Oils on Amazon or the Health Food Store?

The essential oils at the health food store are simply not the same quality as Young Living (as I personally found out first hand). Due to lax labeling laws, many have been adulterated with synthetic chemicals or contain cheap essential oils produced from crops with pesticides. If you check the labels, they typically say not for “internal use” or “do not put directly on the skin”. Not good. Even a novice oiler can usually smell the difference. Peppermint, for instance, shouldn’t smell sweet or like candy. It should smell like a fresh-cut herb. When you compare Young Living’s Peppermint with another company – there’s simply no comparison.


And Amazon is no better, unfortunately. There are some imposter oils that are labeled Young Living, when actually they are diluted or replaced with fake oils. Yes, really. Young Living does NOT sell oils on Amazon. You can only get them direct from the company itself or through an independent distributor (like me).

The Premium Starter Kit – Most Affordable Option

Quality is important – that’s why I chose Young Living. But you know what? Price is too. And of all the essential oil companies out there, I found that Young Living is HANDS-DOWN the best and more affordable starter kit.

This starter kit is packed full of all the essential oils you need to get started with in your home. Filled with essential oils plus a diffuser to smell them all, you’ll also get the ability to learn from me how to:

  • Save money with all natural and non-toxic remedies and 24% off retail prices

How Do I Get Them?

You can purchase Young Living therapeutic-grade essential oils in one of two ways: as a Wholesale Member or Retail Customer. I recommend buying Young Living essential oils by joining as a wholesale member. Why?

It’s the best deal and has the most versatility.

You’ll get to choose a starter kit at nearly half off retail prices AND you’ll get wholesale membership. Think of it like Costco, but way better. You’ll get 24% off retail prices for all future purchases. There are NO monthly minimums or fees.

Member Testimonials

Here are just a few testimonials from my members:

I wanted to share with you what using Young Living essential oils has done for me, after only using them for 1 month. I had major neck surgery in November; 2 vertebrae removed and replaced with donor bone, plates and screws. This was an anterior approach, which means they incised the front of my neck (about 3 inches), moved my larynx to the side and operated on my spine. Needless to say I have had constant pain since the surgery; nerve pain, muscle pain and incision pain. I have been on hydrocodone, Valium and neurontine since that time. I had no energy ,felt sluggish and depressed. This is what brought me to Young Living. I was desperate.

Here I am 1 month later off of ALL of those pills and managing my symptoms with EO’s. And the pain isn’t what it was before either. But best of all I have my energy back, no longer drugged to the point of depression. I am so thankful for these oils, I feel they have given me my life back. I can’t wait to see what else I can use them for, my journey is just beginning! – Kim C.

Erika, I fought back Mom tears last night. The oil sample you gave me, I believe it was the GeneYus oil, to try on Josh… This is the results he came home with and showed us last night. The smile he wore was priceless! Thank you so very much! This is one Happy Momma right here!!!! -Jodi A.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Why should I become an Young Living Wholesale Member?

In addition to the wholesale pricing (24% off retail price), you also have the option of sharing the oils with your friends and family in order to earn commissions and participate in promotions for free oils. If this is something you are considering, please email me at I will be more than happy to help you get started!

2. Is there a monthly order minimum?

No. You do not have to order monthly in order to benefit from being a Wholesale Member.

3. I don’t really want to sell essential oils. Do I have to sell Young Living products to be a Wholesale Member?

Of course not. Since there is no monthly order requirement you can simply just order whenever you and your family need it. There is no requirement to have a business. Promise 🙂

4. What do I need to do to get started?

To begin as a Wholesale Member, you start with buying an enrollment kit. Just choose a diffuser option, and then you’re set. This is the same kit I purchased to get started on my essential oil journey.

5. Why do I need to give my SSN? 

You’ll be asked for your social security number in case you want to become a distributor of Young Living products in future. This information will never be shared with anyone. You can also opt to provide an EIN number instead.

6. What is Essential Rewards?

Essential Rewards (ER) is an optional loyalty program. When you join, you’ll start accumulating rewards points (10-25% on your qualifying order) for everything you buy, which can be used to get free products on future orders. You can join the ER program later – but believe me, this is great to join from the get-go. Young Living has oils for hormone support like Progessence Plus for women and Shutran for men, supplements like NingXia Red and Master Formula (multivitamins), beauty products (I love the ART skin care line), and even toothpaste (trust me, Thieves toothpaste will change your life). It makes MUCH more sense to purchase these items from yourself and qualify for rewards than it does to give it to Wal-mart or Target.

7. Are there other purchase options available? 

Yes. Although 90% of our members do enroll with the Premium Starter kit for the value and versatility, it may not be a fit for everyone (or every budget). Here are some additional options:

Option 1: You can enroll as a retail customer and purchase oils individually. Retail customers pay 24% more, but sometimes that works better for people. I personally don’t see a lot of value here, but if you only want to purchase one or two oils, then it might be a better short term option. Be aware though, purchasing at retail does not include any supporting literature. That’s of course not a deal breaker because I am always here for support, but I just wanted to give you a heads up because most people expect more with the order. It literally will be the oil in a paper tube and maybe a product guide (which is the same one you can find online) and that’s it.
Option 2: There is a basic wholesale account membership ($45.00) and includes a Stress Away, some samples, and the wholesale membership itself.( FYI, It doesn’t save you on the starter kit because the starter kit is already discounted).
basic kit.jpg
Option 3: This option doesn’t avoid the initial cost of the premium starter kit, but if you do purchase the kit, there is no additional membership needed to start sharing your oils. (Some companies require their members to purchase 2k+ of product before they can “sell” it and YL is not that way. In fact, the kits are already designed with a great display and samples that help you to showcase and start sharing your oils right away.) There are no sales quotas, but just a few people would help offset the cost of the kit.
