How to Purchase Young Living Essential Oils {31 Days of Young Living Essential Oils}

Good evening! It is Day 7 of my series, 31 Days of Young Living Essential Oils, and we are rolling right along. If this is your first time visiting, you can catch up on the series here.

I have created a static page that discusses how to join Young Living, but I wanted to explain it in a bit more detail. There are two ways to purchase essential oils from Young Living.

You can sign up to be a Retail Customer.

What is a customer? As a customer, you are simply signing up to purchase oils at your convenience. There is no obligation to ever buy more or to sell anything. When purchasing oils, you will be paying retail price, and will receive no discounts or rewards, just lots of oily goodness. However, if you are currently a customer, and would like to begin receiving the 24% discount a wholesale member account offers you, you have the option to upgrade your account.

Wholesale Members receive wholesale pricing, options for essential rewards, and the opportunity to build a business.

If you want to receive the wholesale pricing, but have no desire to sell anything, that’s great! There is never any obligation to sell these oils – EVER. Remember, I am still no saleswoman, and was a wholesale member {formerly called “Independent Distributor} for over a year before I promoted the oils at all. If you do change your mind (like I did) and want to sell the oils, already having a wholesale account makes that easy peasy – just do it! :D

To retain your wholesale account, all you have to do is make ONE 50 PV (product value) purchase PER YEAR. That’s right. Only one 50 PV (and on most oils, the product value is dollar for dollar on the cash price, so $50 in oils would usually equal 50 PV).

If you want to join Young Living as a Member or Customer:

1. Click here to begin the enrollment process.

2. Select Wholesale Member so you can get the wholesale discount, or Retail Customer to pay retail.

3. My member number is: 1323221, but it should already be filled in.

4. Purchase the Starter Kit of your choice to activate your membership.

5. After you set up your account and place your initial order, send an email to me. I will send you some reading materials and a user guide, plus get you added to the private Facebook group. Your oils should arrive on your doorstep in one week!

What is this Starter Kit that I have to purchase to be a Wholesale Member?

I have specifically outlined the different starter kits on my Young Living page, but basically, there are three starter kits of differing price and value offered to new sign-ups. Each kit includes your lifetime membership fee, which is why the purchase of a kit is required. $40 will get you the Basic Starter Kit, $75 for the Basic Plus Starter Kit, and $150 nets you the Premium Starter Kit. And while I know it’s a lot to shell out at one time, truly and honestly, the Premium Kit gets you the most bang for your buck. You have tons of new oils and a free diffuser at your disposal right off the bat.

Wholesale Members can earn Essential Rewards. What are those?

I plan to discuss Essential Rewards (ER) more in-depth in a later post, but having an ER order every month earns you credit for YL products, a reduced shipping fee, and the opportunity to earn FREE oils in the monthly promotion. Plus, you will have oils shipped to your door around the same day every month. Woohoo! If you are going to be ordering a lot of oils, or oils a lot, I highly recommend signing up for the ER program. It will save you money in the long run.

There has to be a catch.

I really meant it when I said there is no obligation to sell these oils if you sign up to be a member. Really. I’m not a pushy person, and if it isn’t for you, that’s fine. My main goal is to introduce you to these oils so you can hopefully fall in love with them the way I have. That’s it. Whether you sign up as a customer, a member simply to get the discount, or as a member ready to take it to the next level, I’m here for you. And if you are on the fence, a new but fantastic resource for information and inspiration is the Oily Families Facebook page. There is nothing to join, but you can just “like” it can keep up with the wonderful oils, testimonies, and information they have to share.

For more information on joining Young Living as a distributor, you can see my Young Living Distributor page.

Before using Young Living Essential Oils, I highly recommend you find someone local (or you are welcome to contact me!) for more education on using these wonderful, powerful oils. I have a monthly class (sometimes, bi-monthly), where we go over the proper usage of these amazing products. Knowledge is power, right?

      Hi Sue!

      If you already have a wholesale or customer account, you can reorder with ease. Go to and sign in with your member number or the username you chose when you created your account. Once you are logged in, on the left side of the page, you will see a list of options, including a tab labeled, “Order.” From there, you can add any Young Living product to your cart and check out!

      Hope that helps! :)
