Getting Started with Young Living Essential Oils

Happy Friday, friends!

I know it’s been a while since I posted something, but I’ve been working on a few things that have required some extra attention, and I’ve been focusing a little more on family- so please forgive me.

I didn’t plan to post anything today, but I decided to pop in and do a quick little post on how to get started using Young Living Essential Oils.

I know most of you are familiar with them, and at this point either already use them or have no interest- but I have had enough people asking me about them to take the time to do this.

So here we go! 🙂

First of all, it’s super simple getting started- so if you’re interested in getting started, you can hop on over to Young Living and follow the simple steps & use Member# 1932473! But if you need a refresher on how it works, and the benefits- read on! I will also include step-by-step instructions on how to fill everything out!

Is Young Living Right For You?

Customer or Independent Distributor?

  • Customer(buy at retail pricing – no requirements, no fees)
  • Independent Distributor asCustomer (buy at wholesale pricing – no fees, but there is a $50/year purchase requirement)
  • Independent Distributor asBusiness (buy at wholesale pricing – no fees, but there is a purchase requirement – read more bellow)

Customer

This type of membership is completely FREE to join.

  • No membership fees.
  • No yearly dues.
  • No obligation.
  • No selling.

This type of membership allows you to easily order the oils and products that you need at retail pricing, plus tax & shipping. This membership does not get you wholesale pricing.

Independent Distributor as Customer (Save 24% with Wholesale Pricing)

This type of membership is signed up as “Independent Distributor” and requires the purchase of a starter kit, which you can choose for yourself. They are great kits that range in price from $45 to $260. You only have to purchase a starter kit once, at sign up – and they are useful. The Premium Starter Kit ($160) is a great value, not just because it’s at the top price tier but because you get roughly $300 worth of product! This kit comes with a diffuser (I love mine!) and includes eleven different bottles of oil to get you started, a roll-on attachment, 10 samples packets, 10 sample bottles, and materials to help you become familiar with oils and how to use them. If a diffuser isn’t something you’re interested in, or you already know what things you’d like to order, the Basic Starter Kit ($45) is a great way to get in and then you can begin ordering the products you want at wholesale right away.

  • Save 24% off of retail pricing.
  • No membership fees.
  • No yearly dues.
  • No obligation.
  • No selling required.

Independent Distributor as Business (Save 24% with Wholesale Pricing)

This type of membership is with the intent of making an income! It is similar to the information above, with a few changes. If you love essential oils, chances are that you already share what you know with friends and family. By being a distributor, you can earn a commission when those people (and more!) buy oils from you, or sign up under you. Just like being a wholesale customer, you are required to purchase a starter kit, which range in price from $45 to $260 (depending on diffuser choice). You only have to purchase a starter kit once (same as above). If you wish to earn a commission check, you must also be enrolled in the “Essential Rewards” program. In addition to making a commission and being eligible for payment, you also earn Essential Rewards points that can be redeemed for free products. These points are great for buying gifts, having stock on hand, or treating yourself to something special.

Want to get Oily?

The first thing to remember is that signing up does not obligate you to anything. You will never pay membership fees and you will never be obligated to make a purchase that you don’t want. When you sign up with Young Living essential oils, it is an opportunity for you to explore without worry.

Choose a Starter Kit

You’ve decided that membership is the way for you. That’s great! That means that you will instantly start saving 24% on the products you love to use.

Because signing up as a member opens you up to earning opportunities, Young Living wants to help set you up for success. To do this, you choose a starter kit when signing up as a member.

Kits range in price from $45, all the way up to $260. You can choose any kit. If you already own a lot of oils and a great YL diffuser, you may only need the $40 kit to get you in the door. If you think you’d like to replenish, or take advantage of the deals, a premium starter kit is the way to go.

The Premium Starter Kit

The Premium Starter Kit is an exceptional value. It includes all you need to get started with Young Living:

A diffuser of your choice, this will determine the price of your kit. There are three great diffusers to choose from to fit your needs and preferences.

-Dew Drop Diffuser ($160 – 34% savings)

-Bamboo Diffuser ($170 – 35% savings)

-Aria Diffuser ($260 – 36% savings & 1 per member limit)
The new Premium Essential Oils Collection kit includes 10 bottles of oil! Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Copaiba, Frankincense, Thieves®, Purification®, R.C.™, DiGize™, & PanAway® ! Plus a BONUS Stress Away™ and an AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment, two Lavender Sample Packets, two Peppermint Sample Packets, two Peace & Calming Sample Packets, two Lemon Sample Packets, two Thieves Sample Packets, 10 sample bottles (these are great for sharing!), and two NingXia Red 2-oz. samples.

In addition to products, your kit contains a host of materials to make your business opportunity a success: Sample Packet Business Cards, the Welcome to Young Living booklet, Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide, Distributor Resource Guide, S.E.E.D. Sharing for Success booklet, and more.

PLUS! Young Living recently announced that all Premium Kits would also come with an additional FREE 5ml bottle of oil. Each kit will include (at random) Lemongrass, Orange, or Tangerine essential oil! That’s 12 oils you’ll be receiving!

There are other kits to choose from, and any one of them will help you gain member (distributor) status, but this kit is by far the best value – even if you just want to stock up on some great oils!

Visit YoungLiving.com to get started!

Step 1 – Once on the page:

  • Be sure that “member” is selected. (Unless you do not want the 24% discount and would prefer to sign up as a customer.)
  • Check off: “A member referred me, and I have his or her information.” The member number should read: 1932473
  • Fill out your personal information and check that you understand the Terms & Conditions. (This page does ask for your social. The reason it needs this is for legal tax purposes, because you have the ability to earn an income.)
  • Choose a username, password and PIN. Be sure to write these down somewhere safe! You will need them to log in and/or call Young Living’s member services.


Step 2
 – Select Your Kit!

  • If you’d like to maximize your savings, select any “Premium Starter Kit”. These kits are the ones with the Premium Essential Oils Collection, diffuser, extras, and business starter kit. The other kits do not include the Premium Essential Oils Collection (10 oils).
  • If you’re not worried about the additional savings, select any kit that speaks to you.


Step 3
 – Essential Rewards (Optional)

Essential Rewards (ER) is an optional discount program within Young Living. You can choose to sign up now, later, or not at all. By enrolling in ER, you will earn up to 20% back on purchases (starting at 10% and increasing as you stay in the program) as points, which can be redeemed for free oils.

  • If you would like to enroll in ER, you may choose a kit at this time.
  • If you would rather not enroll at this time (or you would, but would prefer to choose specific products, as opposed to a kit) you can simply select “No, thank you” and you may enroll at any time by logging into your Virtual Office.

Step 4 – Shipping and Billing

  • Enter your payment information and continue to complete your signup and purchase.
  • You will have an opportunity to double check all of your information and this will be used when you make purchases moving forward. (You can change it at any time by logging into your Virtual Office.)
  • Click “Activate and Place Order” button, and you are done!

Your membership is all set to go and will remain active so long as you spend at least $50 in a calendar year (on anything you choose.) There are no membership fees or additional requirements.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask! I would love for you to join my team and we can support each other on a healthier journey! We will always stay connected through a special Facebook group full of wonderful, supporting oil lovers!

Happy Oiling!

June Yoga Challenge Week Four

Happy Monday, beautiful ones!

Today I bring you Week Four of this little yoga series and we are nearing the end! Today we are going to be doing another simple pose but an important one- so let’s jump right into it!!

Week Four: June 22, 2015

The Angel Card pulled for this week is: Listen

week4

Listen
“Quiet your mind, Beloved One, and listen to our gentle reassurance that everything has been taken care of. Stay in a quiet and receptive state, without worrying about the exact nature of your desire’s manifestation. A quiet mind and body hears us quickly and clearly. This is our request to you: Listen.”

So it’s interesting that this is the card I pulled for today because I have a lot of special people in my life really going through some heavy stuff right now, and I know that it is really difficult not worry when things go terribly wrong- but no matter if we think they are wrong or not, they all serve a purpose much greater than we could ever understand. During these difficult times it’s important to remain faithful and LISTEN. You’ll never know what God is trying to teach you, or show you, or help you to understand if you’re not open to listening.

The pose I’d like to focus on this week is:  Shavasana or Corpse Pose 

week4 Corpse Pose

I had planned on using this pose for next week as we finish out our series, but I felt like this was the most appropriate pose to focus on for the card pulled. I know that this is another simple one, but its an important one. This pose is so wonderful for your body. The stillness of the pose allows you to release, let go, give gratitude, be in the moment and listen.

Make time for your body. Give your body time to heal, and nurturer it. It is yours, and it’s the only one you’ll ever be given so be kind to it. Love yourself.

Namaste

June Yoga Challenge Week Three

Happy Monday little beauties!

If you are returning for Week Three, I welcome you back and thank you for continuing to read and if you’re just now checking this out, you can always look back to see weeks One and Two– but whatever the case, I am glad you’re taking time out of your day to read my words. (:

So as we dive into Week Three (can’t believe June is going by so quickly) I am already seeing more and more ways I can improve this little series, but I will just continue to follow the same set up as I have, and tweak it for next time.

Week Three: June 15, 2015

The Angel Card pulled for this week is: Let Your Past Go 

week3
Let Your Past Go
“The burden of carting your past around has made you weary, Dear One. It’s time to set this burden down. Keep only the lessons and the love, and leave everything else behind. You don’t want it or need it, and it’s now gone.”

I think everyone can benefit from this card. We all face struggles of our past everyday because our past gains a new chapter with every morning that we wake up to- so it’s only natural for us to be in constant battles with our past. (Humans are notorious for second guessing themselves.)

For me, having my daughter really gave me strength on being able to let go and move on. When I first found out I was pregnant, I lost a lot of people in my life, and that lead to feelings of bitterness and anger during one of the most magical times of life. I quickly realized that it was no way to live and by focusing on what had happened, I was missing out on so much that was happening. Sometimes I still have to remind myself that whatever has happened is done. That moment has passed, I can’t go back to it, change it, or remove it- so except that what will be, will be and have peace that it will all work out.

The pose I’d like to focus on this week is: Balasana or Childs Pose

week3pose

I chose to focus on this pose because everyone can do it, just like everyone can benefit from our card this week. I wanted to choose a pose that was simple, but restorative and beneficial. I love child’s pose because I feel it’s a little reward during a class generally following a more intense flow. To me it’s a small symbolic gesture of life. When you finish up with a difficult flow, and you know a moment of rest is coming…and in that moment to find your breath, you become grounded at the knees, and you can feel the rise and fall of your chest pressing into your thighs, head rested, simple and joyful- you know you’ve made it through, much like life. It’s a simple pose I am probably putting to much thought into, but it’s one I love.

As usual, I have included a video to help guide you through it. If you haven’t noticed, I have chosen a different instructor each week. This is purposely done so you can have an opportunity to find an online instructor for when you want to practice with the convenience of YouTube!

If you’re keeping up with this, take a picture of your Child’s Pose and share it with me on Instagram or leave it in the comment section!

Let me know what poses help you let go of the past!

Namaste
