More than anything else, I want you to feel comfortable with the brand of essential oils you choose to use, whether you buy from the same company I do, or not. However, I also know that choosing a brand can be incredibly overwhelming. How do you know whether you are getting truly pure essential oils, or just diluted fragrance oils (with little, if any, therapeutic benefit)? I hear ya. I was so overwhelmed when it came to choosing a brand, that I put it off for an entire year.
So Which Brand Do I Use?
I exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils.
Why Young Living?
Young Living has been in the industry longer than many essential oil companies, and they continue to grow. I appreciate their desire to provide safe products for me and my family, whether it be essential oils, cleaning products, personal hygiene products, weight management and nutritional supplements, baby products, or make-up. They are a company striving to provide families with safe, high-quality products. While they admit to not always getting it right, each time they are faced with challenge, they implement change and policy to improve every aspect of their business and practice, and I admire that.
Young Living is the only company I have found that owns its own farms, from which they harvest their essential oils. All other companies buy their essential oils in bulk, and then bottle the oil for resale.
While Young Living is a large company, I love knowing that I am supporting those that choose to make Young Living an individual/family business. I have friends that are making full-time incomes through Young Living, and I love knowing that my purchase is helping to support their families.
Young Living also has a rewards program, offering up to 25% credit back to your account on purchases made, which means, I get free products! And, if you spend certain amounts in any given month, you also get free oils.
How Do I Buy Oils from Young Living?
Young Living provides everyone with two options for purchase:
Option 1: Buy Retail
Simply pop over to Young Living, and search for a specific product under the “Products” tab, or select a category from the drop-down menu. Add desired items to your cart, and select “Checkout” when you’re ready. You will be given the option to sign up as a member (see below) or as a retail customer. Select “Retail Customer”. Under the “Retail Customer Graphic” you are asked whether someone referred you. I would love if you would enter my member number into the two boxes: 3422543. Then simply fill out your information to process your order.
Option 2: Become A Member
Becoming a member means that you get all your products at a 24% discount. To become a member, you simply start by purchasing a starter kit; and there are a bunch of kits to choose from. Looking to get started with essential oils? The Premium Starter Kit is perfect. Skeptical about essential oils, but want to start creating a non-toxic home? Try the Thieves Starter Kit. (Information on each starter kit is found below.) Becoming a member does not mean you have to sell oils. It does not mean you need to make monthly purchases. And it does not mean you need to join the rewards program.
I want to let you know, that if you sign up with Young Living, as a member, using the links in this post, you will become part of my “team”; and I would love to have you! When you join, I am here to support you; to help you as you begin this journey. I will get you plugged into a wonderful Facebook Group, where you’ll be able to ask questions and learn about the amazing benefits of essential oils and non-toxic products. I will also send you out some wonderful resources that will help you understand, and use, your essential oils to get maximum benefit. If you decide to purchase any of the starter kits below, you will be asked for a sponsor and enroller number, please make sure 3422543 is entered for both, as this assures you are added to my team 🙂
Premium Starter Kit
I decided to become a member two years ago by purchasing the Premium Starter Kit. This kit is ah-mazing for those that are just getting started with essential oils, because you get 11 bottles of essential oil and a diffuser (plus a bunch of other goodies). This starter kit is truly the best deal of all the starter kits offered.
Changes are coming! And they are awesome! Young Living is changing up the Premium Starter Kit at the beginning of 2018, and I am oh so excited. Here’s what you can expect: Instead of receiving R.C., you will receive Raven (which is one of my favorites!). Instead of Purification, you will receive Citrus Fresh (perfect for spring). And, best of all, Young Living is replacing the sample packets of oils with a sample of the Thieves Household Cleaner! An updated graphic will be coming soon.
Thieves Starter Kit
If you’re like me, and want to clean your home without the use of harsh, toxic chemicals, there is the Thieves Starter Kit. You receive products from the Thieves line, including cleaners, soaps, and toothpaste.
Ningxia Starter Kit
Looking to support your health this year? The Ningxia Starter Kit contains Young Living’s amazing juice blend called Ningxia Red®. If you are interested in learning why this product is so beneficial to your health, you can check out this video.
From what I have read, you need to use caution with Ningxia Red if you are on blood thinners or are at risk for bleeding. Please consult with your medical professional.
The All New Savvy Minerals Starter Kit
Wear make-up? Try the Savvy Minerals Starter Kit which gives you lots of natural make-up options (and you can choose from a variety of colors ranging from cool to warm to dark. (Two shades of dark available Dark 1 and Dark 4).
If you are interested in joining Young Living, I would love nothing more than to have you on my team.
