There are two ways you can buy Young Living essentials:
- You can pay retail (full price) and buy directly from the web site by creating nothing more than a login (as you would an Amazon account, etc.)
- You can get a membership and get everything 24% off plus have access to additional member discounts and the company’s rewards program. I like to compare this to something like a Costco membership except you don’t pay annually (you only pay once) and you actually GET something for the cost of your membership!
The member account is what 90% of the company chooses. Conveniently, it gives you the option to join as either a Preferred Customer or a Business Builder! This means if you wish to provide your SSN upon signup and refer other members to Young Living to pay for your own products or as a part- to full-time income, you can do that right off the bat! If you prefer not to provide your SSN and refer other members, you are a Preferred Customer and get all the same rewards, benefits and discounts that Business Builders get! If you love the products and choose to refer people to Young Living, you can always add your SSN to the account later. 🙂
The best way to get started is to choose a Premium Starter Kit. Young Living has starter kits with all Thieves products, all NingXia Red products, Savvy Minerals makeup, or 11 oils and a diffuser. Most people are interested in the oils and diffuser, and you have a choice of diffusers.
The most popular diffuser is the new Desert Mist Diffuser.
Young Living’s Desert Mist Ultrasonic Diffuser functions as a humidifier, atomizer, and aroma diffuser in one simple-to-use product. Inspired by the design of a stylish Moroccan trellis, the Desert Mist Diffuser brings an exotic and modern look to any space. It also helps support a natural environment by replacing harmful household fragrance chemicals with naturally derived essential oils. Using ultrasonic frequency technology, the Desert Mist Diffuser generates waves at 1.7 million per second, breaking down essential oils and water into millions of microparticles, dispersing them into the air, and releasing the oils’ unique constituents. This diffuser is custom designed to diffuse continuously for 5–6 hours on High mode, 8 hours on Low mode, and 10 hours on Intermittent mode. It also offers 11 individual light settings, including a candle-like flicker mode.
There are other diffuser options available, as well: the DewDrop diffuser, for no upgrade cost; the Rainstone Diffuser, which is a $45 upgrade cost; and the Aria diffuser, which is a $100 upgrade. If you’re interested in any of those diffusers, please let me know. Otherwise, the one I use and recommend most is the Desert Mist, pictured above.
Here are the oils that come in the kit, regardless of which diffuser you choose:
- VALOR – Young Living’s #1 selling blend
- Peace & Calming
- Citrus Fresh
- Stress Away
- Bonuses: Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier & Thieves Spray!
- Aromaglide roller & promotional items
These 12 oils are designed to assist the most common health needs and every body system. They are the most popular oils and blends for a reason and are a great way to START your health journey.
In addition to getting a whole kit with 12 oils and a diffuser plus the membership for $165, members have the opportunity to take advantage of Essential Rewards, a lifestyle subscription program designed to give members who wish to order monthly an additional 10%-25% back in credit for everything they purchase! I have been on Essential Rewards for five years now and have gotten hundreds of dollars worth of free product. I like to tell new members that if you are interested in the lifestyle that is chemical-free products — oils, home cleaning, supplements, beauty, children’s, and personal care — then choosing the Rewards program right off the bat is wise. You can either choose an additional Rewards kit at checkout with your Premium Starter Kit, or you can complete your initial order, remain logged into your account, and click the Essential Rewards tab on the left-hand side of the screen to personalize your Rewards order. The best thing about Rewards is that you can change both the contents and the date of the month that your order ships, at will, online. It’s the easiest savings program I have ever used, hands down. Minimum per month to stay active in the program is 50 PV.
If you choose Essential Rewards and wish to subscribe to the “Amazon Prime” of shipping options for your monthly subscription program, YL GO or GO+ are worth looking into. They cost an small fee upfront but save you hundreds of dollars in shipping throughout the year.
If you’re not interested in starting with the essential oils kit, Young Living offers a kit with a complete line of home and personal care products infused with the pleasant, spicy aroma of our proprietary Thieves® essential oil blend! This Starter Kit is ideal for those wishing to replace harmful chemicals in the home with powerful, natural alternatives.
If you don’t want a premium starter kit, Young Living now has a “basic” membership option for $35. It includes a 5 ml bottle of Stress Away, Thieves hand sanitizer, Thieves mints, samples of NingXia Red, and 2 roller fitments for essential oils. This is a great option if you want to purchase things à la carte (like hormone support products, supplements, CBD etc). When you click Become a Member, just choose the Basic Starter Kit and then add whatever product(s) you wish to your cart.
Young Living also has NingXia Red and CBD starter kits! It’s too much to go into here; but ask me about it anytime or choose those options when you click Become a Member and check out.
