Why did you choose Young Living?
I’ll admit, when my friends started talking about Young Living and essential oils I was tempted to just go to the health food store and buy a few bottles. I’m so glad they talked me out of that!
As I said, Young Living oils are of a Therapeutic Grade, which means they’re safe for internal use. Most of the oils you buy elsewhere cannot be used internally, and there’s no guarantee that they’re safe to use on your skin either.
From doing lots of reading I discovered that many oil companies source their oils from oil brokers who in turn source those oils from various farms around the world. And the methods of collecting those oils varies greatly. I just didn’t like the idea of buying an oil and not knowing where it had come from and whether in the collection process it had been tainted in some way. I’m trying to build a healthier life for my family, not swap one chemical concoction for another!
Young Living is the only company that has their own farms. They literally own every step of the process. From planting the seed, to growing the plants, to collecting and distilling the oil to finally putting it in the bottle and shipping it to the customer! They call it the Seed to Seal process and it’s something they’re (quite rightly) very proud of.
My friends have put their trust in this company (and some of them have even been and visited those farms) and I felt comfortable putting my trust in Young Living too.
Of course I also loved that I could sign up and get a wholesale membership discount (24%) without being obliged to go out and sell to anyone!
Do I have to become a wholesale member?
Nope. You can be a retail customer, but you’ll have to pay 24% more for your oils and other products. The wholesale membership is sort of like a Costo membership, so you get to buy the products at wholesale prices (24% off retail). PLUS if you share your oil stories with your friends and families and they want to join Young Living you’ll earn some commission as a thank you.
I really just want to use the oils myself. Are you saying I have to sell products to become a wholesale member?
Nope. You just have the option to. There is ZERO obligation to sell products and many wholesale members don’t. They just use the oils themselves but take advantage of the discount and the rewards programme.
Of course if you ever change your mind about wanting to make some money let me know and I’ll happily help you get started 😉
Is there a monthly order minimum?
Nope. You can just order what you like when you like. You need to make a minimum order of $50 a year to remain a wholesale member, but if your membership lapses you can just make a $50 order to restart it.
