How To Purchase Young Living Essential Oils

40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils
40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils

Happy Saturday everybody! It is Day 4 of my 40 Days of Young Living Essential Oils series. If you’re just tuning in, you can catch up on the series by CLICKING HERE.

For Day 4 I had planned on writing about Thieves Oil since it is one of Young Living’s signature products. But, in the last 24 hours, two people have inquired how and where to purchase the oils. Then today I received my most recent order of a box of goodies from Young Living… it is my most favorite and super happy mail day!!!

Today’s package includes three purse-sized Thieves spritzers, Thieves toothpaste, Morning Start Shower Gel, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Orange Essential Oils. Ready for Springtime aromatherapy!! Oh but I have digressed.

Back to the subject at hand….. So how do you purchase from Young Living?

You can sign up to be a Retail Customer.

What is a customer? As a customer, you are simply signing up to purchase oils directly from Young Living. There is no obligation to ever buy more or to sell anything. When purchasing oils as a customer, you will be paying retail price, and will receive no discounts or rewards, just lots of wholesome delicious smelling products. However, if you are currently a customer, and would like to begin receiving the 24% discount a wholesale member account offers you, you have the option to upgrade your account.


You can sign up to be Wholesale Member. Wholesale Members receive wholesale pricing (24% discount from retail), options for Essential Rewards, and the opportunity to build a business.

If you want to receive wholesale pricing, but do not want to sell anything, that is absolutely cool.  There is never any obligation to sell these oils – EVER.   If you do change your mind (like I did) and want to sell (be a distributor of) the oils, already having a wholesale account makes it easy to start if you chose to do so.

These are the steps to  join Young Living as a Wholesale Member or Customer:

1. Click here to begin the enrollment process.

2. Select Wholesale Member so you can get the wholesale discount, or Retail Customer to pay retail.

3. My member number is: 1572095. This number should already be filled in the Sponsor ID and Enroller ID boxes. If it is not filled in, please fill in my number so that I can get credit for signing you up. (Many Thanks!!)

4. Fill out your name, billing address, shipping address, and contact info. (The reason you are asked to list your social security number is for tax purposes. If you make over $600/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.)

5. Create your password and pin which you will use to log in to your account and order your oils. If you chose Retail Customer you can skip to step 8.

6. If you chose the Wholesale Member option you must now purchase the Starter Kit of your choice to activate your membership. This is where you can specify which starter kit you would like (see below for an explanation and description of the Starter Kits) – they range in price from $40 on up. You only need to spend $40 to get the 24% discount. Note – you must sign up with one of these kits to become a wholesale member. This is mandatory. To maintain your 24% discount going forward, you only need to spend $50 worth each subsequent year with Young Living on any product in their store. That’s it! You can also purchase other items at this time if you wish.

7. If you chose  the Wholesale Member option, you may also now set up your *optional* Essential Rewards Program (ER).Don’t be confused by this next step (like I was). Buying one of the Essential Rewards kits is not a requirement to sign up as a wholesale member! This is a (COMPLETELY OPTIONAL) rewards program  you can opt into to start earning money back to help pay for your oils. If you do not want to set up an Essential Rewards Program, at this point, you can skip this step by selecting: ‘No, thank you. I plan on enrolling in the Essential Rewards Program later’. If, however, one of the Essential Rewards  kits looks valuable to you then by all means get one in addition to your starter kit but please understand that you cannot buy an Essential Rewards  kit in lieu of a starter kit. The Essential Rewards  program is the most economical way to purchase your oils and other products. I choose to purchase my products through the Essential Rewards Program, but please note that it requires making a monthly minimum purchase. If you’re not interested or ready to join the Essential Rewards program now,  you can always opt-in at a later time.

8. AGREE to Terms & Conditions

9. CONFIRM YOUR ORDER. I have had many folks miss this step and end up not fully checking out. Make sure to confirm.  The tool will log you in and it will show you your order again and you will be prompted to enter in your payment information again. If you don’t confirm, your order won’t process and you will not receive your oils. And that’s no fun!

10. CONGRATULATIONS! That’s it!! After you set up your account and place your initial order, send an email to me. I will send you some additional materials and resources to help you navigate the wonderful world of Young Living. As well as introduce you to the Joyful Healing Oils Team  that introduced me to the oils.  Your oils should arrive on your doorstep in one week!

What is this Starter Kit? And why do I  have to purchase it to be a Wholesale Member?

Basically, there are four starter kits of differing price and value offered to new sign-ups. Each kit includes your lifetime membership fee, which is why the purchase of a kit is required. For $40 you will receive the Basic Starter Kit, $75 for the Basic Plus Starter Kit, and for $150 you may choose either the Premium Starter Kit with an oil diffuser or the Premium Starter Kit featuring NingXiaNitro.  I fully realize it’s a lot to shell out at one time, but  the Premium Starter Kits get you the most bang for your buck because they come with the collection of 10 Everyday Oils in addition to the bonus Stress Away Oil. That’s 11 oils to play with right off the bat.

The four Starter Kit options are:

THE BASIC STARTER KIT  / $40 …….  When you purchase the Basic Starter Kit, you will receive 10 YL oil samples {2 each of Lavender, Lemon, Peace & Calming, Peppermint, and Thieves}, a 5 ml bottle of Stress Away essential oil blend, 2 NingXia Red samples, AromaGlide roller fitment, and information about Young Living’s essential oils. This is all you need to get started as a distributor with Young Living.

THE BASIC PLUS STARTER KIT  / $75 ……. Another option is to purchase the Basic Plus Starter Kit, which saves you 35%, as compared to purchasing the Basic Kit. This kit comes with everything in the Basic Kit, plus a FREE home diffuser!

***THE PREMIUM  STARTER KIT  / $150 …… The third option is the Premium Starter Kit, which gives you a 37% discount, and is the kit with the best value for the oil enthusiast and is the kit I chose to start with. This kit comes with everything in the Basic Kit, the free home diffuser, AND the Everyday Oils Kit. In this kit you will receive 10 of Young Living’s most popular essential oils which have a multitude of uses: Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, Thieves, Valor, PanAway, Purification, Peace & Calming, and Joy. Each bottle contains 85-100 drops of oil so this collection gets you around 900 drops. A typical application is 1-4 drops so they will last you awhile.

THE PREMIUM  STARTER KIT featuring NingXia Nitro  / $150 …… The fourth option is new at Young Living and is perfect for those who are serious about transforming their lives. This kit has everything the Premium Starter Kit has but instead of the free home diffuser, you will receive two 14-packs of NingXia Nitro.

I realize this is a lot of info. Simply put, there is a minimum $40 start-up fee to become a wholesale member, and you only need to spend $50pv per year to keep the 24% wholesale discount. And that’s all folks!

If you have any questions, or need more information on how to purchase, please email me at or call me at 251-508-7099.

In Peace, Health and Scented Bliss,
