Getting Started With Essential Oils: How To Use Essential Oils & Where To Buy Them

best-way-to-spread-christmas-cheer-oils

Essential Oils have been essential in my life for many many years. Not only do I use them for aromatherapy (ever smelled the scent of eucalyptus or peppermint? that’s aromatherapy!), but I also have been using them topically.

I use to buy any old oil from the store. I’d keep lavender on hand to create a relaxing atmosphere, and tea tree oil because my kids come inside with way too many boo boos.

But it wasn’t until I was introduced to higher Young Living oils by a friend, that our health dramatically benefitted. I learned about the synthetics that are added to other oils, and witnessed the difference myself literally overnight while diffusing a bottle of Valor.

Since beginning to really focus how and when I use essential oils, our immunity has been amazing.

I did a lot of research into the best essential oils to use, tried many different companies, and eventually settled on Young Living after experiencing them myself. They are 100% therapeutic grade, and are by far higher quality than anything you’ll find on grocery store shelves.

How I Use Essential Oils

 

There are three main ways to use essential oils, and I use all of these methods on a daily basis.

1. Diffuse – Diffusing adds the oils to the air through an electronic diffuser, a necklace, or you can smell them straight from the bottle.

2. Topical – Certain oils are perfect for using topically. If you have any generic oils and they warn not to use topically, then that is a sure sign that they are not pure therapeutic oils!

3. Internal – Only certain types of oils should be taken internally. And only therapeutic grade oils are considered safe to consume. Just be sure to read the directions on the bottle, as not all oils should be taken this way.

The biggest point I want to drive home is: Not all oils are made the same. Many have additives, synthetics, and other chemicals. The FDA doesn’t even require it to be a 100% oil for a company to label their oils as “pure.”

It’s important to know where your oils are coming from, as others can be potentially dangerous if used incorrectly or if they have other additives.

One of the reasons I trust Young Living, is because I’ve researched their farming practices. They own all of their own farms, and even use their own oils as natural pest deterrents!

How To Get Started With Essential Oils

Ready to get started with essential oils? The best way to purchase oils and get the support that you need to be successful while using them, is to become a wholesale member of Young Living. A wholesale membership is FREE and the only option that will give you 24% off retail price. And there is absolutely NO obligation to make any future purchases! None. Zero Zip.

The best part of being a wholesale member? Access to the Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit, which is an absolutely incredible deal on everything you need to get started!

In addition to these awesome savings, you will have the option of sharing the oils with your friends and family, which means you can earn monthly commissions that could pay for your own oil use! You will also receive promotions for free oils. In no way are you required to run a Young Living business as a wholesale member – but it is an option, if you like.

**BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND FREEBIES***

You all know that I’m all about helping people live better and saving money. So why not offer you some awesome freebies to go along with your starter kit?

Purchase the starter kit during the Black Friday Weekend by using the steps below, and you will get the following free goodies:

  • $25 Amazon Gift Card
  • Reference Materials

You’ll also get access to our private Facebook groups with over 1,500 members, to help support you on your essential oil journey!

How To Get This Deal

1.  Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information. {Please use your laptop or desktop to sign-up, instead of your smartphone or tablet.}

2.  Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which are 24% more than wholesale).

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2047673 (so that I can send you your freebies!)

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get!  I’d recommend getting the Premium Starter Kit so that you get all of the oils to started above, AND you get FOUR different options for the diffuser!!   Here are the options for the diffuser:

four diffuser choices

You’ll likely end up getting all or most of these diffusers at some point down the road, so don’t stress too much about which one to get now.  If you’re looking for the absolute BEST deal, then I’d recommend spending the extra to get Aria diffuser.  The Aria diffuser is regularly $225 for wholesale members (it’s a super NICE and absolutely beautiful diffuser!), so it’s like you’re just getting all of the oils for $35 more!  That’s INCREDIBLE!!

6. If you already know that you want to be ordering regularly, then you can go ahead and sign up for Essential Rewards right there when you order your starter kit!  It’s an amazing way to earn FREE oils with your order every month!  It’s a completely OPTIONAL program, so if you’re just wanting the starter kit for now then you can just *skip* this part of the sign-up process.  I’ll send over an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up. 🙂

7. Go through the checkout process.

8.  VERY IMPORTANT:  After you sign up, FILL OUT THIS FORM HERE and use the bonus code “BLACK FRIDAY” at the bottom.  If you have any specific questions, feel free to email me at crystal@naturalthrifty dot com and I will also help you find the information that you need. 🙂

BONUS Step 9 (COMPLETELY Optional!)

If you would like to earn a BONUS essential oil, then you need to get your order total up to 190 PV (different products have different point values). If you get the $160 Premium Starter Kit then you’ll automatically have 100 point value… then you’ll just need 90 more points to get the bonus oil. For example, you could grab an extra bottle of Thieves Oil at 33.75 points, 15 ml bottle of Lavender at 23.5 points, 15 ml bottle of Lime at 11 points, and the 14.4 ounces of Thieves Household Cleaner at 22 points (just pour one capful of the concentrated Thieves cleaning solution into a spray bottle and it lasts for a really long time!) All of those items will bring your total points up to $190.25 which will qualify you to get the BONUS oil! (This step is completely optional!)

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Does signing up make me a “distributor”?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?

There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?

It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it?

I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.

Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.

Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.

With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.

I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying), but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.

How will I know how to use my oils?

One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils!

The educational materials that I’m giving away as part of this promotion are also a HUGE resource. You can look up lots of things in it and see which essential oils and supplements may be helpful.

Does Young Living only sell essential oils?

The answer to this one was surprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.

What if I live outside of the United States?

For those who live in Canada, we will mail the book and labels, but will need to either reduce or remove the gift card to cover the extra shipping charge.

International orders of 100 PV or more will receive a $25 Amazon or Paypal gift card.  Many times the only kit that is offered to those that reside outside of the US doesn’t have a PV at all.  To receive the gift card, you will need to have a minimum of 100 PV in your final order.

What about overseas US military?

If you are military with an APO/FPO address, you can still receive the same promotion as those in the United States since the address is here in the US.

Please let me know if you have any other questions at all and I will do my best to answer them!

Limited-time promotion.  Only available until August 31, 2015 or until there are no more freebie packages.  This post will be updated if the promotion changes before August 31, 2015.
