Young Living Essential Oils

I have a fantastic resource to share with you, and it is one of my favorite ways to stay healthy and happy: Young Living Essential Oils.

2012_4 My First Young Living KitThe kit plus other oils I purchased in April 2012. Notice there is NO Joy and NO diffuser. I paid the same price for mine as new members do now. You are getting a much better deal!

You’ve heard a lot about my natural living journey. For the last six years, I have been unable to tolerate smells, aromas, and odors. We cannot use most detergents, and fabric softeners, commercial cleaners, and scented products of any kind are out. The lovely side-effects you see on most products? Yeah, I get those. That leaves me with very few options for cleaning, smell-goods, and wellness. I used essential oils in my cleaning products for a few years, but honestly wasn’t happy until my dear friend Alyssa introduced me to Young Living.

First of all, what are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. These oils (also known as nature’s living energy) contain unique constituents that provide therapeutic benefits and results. The essential oils I use and recommend are Young Living, and there are three ways to experience their amazing, health-promoting benefits: inhalation, topical application, and internal consumption as dietary supplements (or even food flavorings).

What is Young Living?

Young Living has been in business for over 20 years. Their mission is to take YL oils to every home in the world and help everyone achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle. Young Living is the only essential oil company that owns their own farms. These farms are in the United States, France, Ecuador, Oman, Israel, and Taiwan. Their farms are open for anyone to visit, participate in the harvesting of the plants, and the distillation of the essential oils {which I find to be pretty darn cool!}.

YL uses a low-temperature, low-pressure steam distillation process that ensures the beneficial plant compounds in every batch remain uncompromised during the extraction process. Young Living uses only first distillation essential oils. Think of it like coffee or tea; the first brew tastes great, right?  What if you kept using those same grounds or tea leaves for your next several brews. Would it taste as strong? Would it be as good as the first batch? That’s how it is with Young Living: they only use the first “brew” (distillation), so their oils are top-notch, top-quality, and not watered down, even a little. {Thanks for this analogy, Myra!} Less expensive brands of oils use 2nd-4th distillation. After the oils are distilled, each batch goes through hard-core testing, by both their internal labs and a third-party.

My favorite kit is the Premium Kit ($160) that contains 10 of Young Living’s most popular oils and oil blends (I seriously use all of these every day!): Lemon, R.C., Thieves, Lavender, Purification, Peppermint, Frankincense, PanAway, DiGize and Copaiba. This kit also contains my FAVORITE oil, Stress Away as a bonus oil. This makes 11 oils to start your oily collection off on the right foot! Plus, you get a diffuser of your choice (pictured below), essential oil sample sachets, essential oil sample bottles (perfect for gifting, sharing, or using for yourself on-the-go!), essential oil sample cards, 2 packets of NingXia Red, and 1 roller fitment.

Each bottle contains 85-100 drops of oil so this collection gets you around 900 drops. A typical application is 1-4 drops so they will last you awhile.

Want to order Young Living Essential Oils? Here is your step-by-step guide:

1. Click here youngliving.com to begin the enrollment process and choose a starter kit.

2. Choose the ‘Wholesale Member’ option so you can get the 24% discount. You should see my member number (1323221) in the Enroller and Sponsor boxes. This ensures that we’re connected so I can support you as you learn about oils and how to use them. Young Living also sends me a small bonus when you enroll through me.

3. Scroll to the bottom and click the turquoise button, “next,” and fill in your information. Be sure to write down your username, password, and PIN number. Also, your PIN should be a 4-digit number that you can remember, because any time you contact Young Living (or need me to contact them on your behalf), they will ask for that number.

4. Choose your starter kit. My favorite is the $160 Premium Starter Kit with all of the oils shown in the graphics above. (PS: The Essential Rewards Kits are optional, and you do not have to enroll at this time.)

5. Add more products if you wish, or simply begin the checkout process.

6. Finish and finalize your order. Your starter kit should make its way to your house within a few weeks.

7. If you need to log into your new account, this is the link to use: https://www.youngliving.com/vo/#/login.

8. BONUS! After you set up your account and place your initial order, send an email (amynortonyl@gmail.com) to me. I will send you some reading materials, a user guide, and a few extra goodies, plus get you added to the private Facebook group. Your oils should arrive on your doorstep in a few weeks!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at amynortonyl@gmail.com.

Don’t feel like joining as a wholesale member? That’s okay! You can still sign up as a Retail Customer and order all the oils you want at retail price. If you select “Retail Customer” you will not receive wholesale pricing, you won’t have access to starter kits and you will pay retail cost which is 24% more than wholesale. If you ever change your mind and want the 24% discount, it’s nothing a quick phone call to customer service won’t fix.

I’m signed up. Now what?

  • It will take a few weeks for your oils to arrive. You can check out this Essential Oil Safety Guide to read up on how to begin using your oils.
  • Online support via email and a private Facebook group. Plus, you will officially be part of the Oily Families community, and can count on great ideas and support via the OF Facebook page!
  • There are no monthly order requirements. As long as you spend $50 (50PV) per calendar year, your account stays active. Really. There aren’t any other requirements!
  • If you want to attend a class and I am not local to you, I’d be happy to Skype or Facetime you into one of my monthly meetings. There are also tons of online Facebook classes going on all the time. I would be happy to add you to one of those as well.
  • If you decide to pursue the business side, I have a plethora of information and support for you. All you have to do is ask! Locals, I would be more than happy to teach a class for you. Those of you on my team who are not local, well, we can do a live class via Skype. Easy-peasy!
  • HOWEVER… if you simply want to use the oils for yourself and your family, I’m a no-pressure kind of gal. There are absolutely NO obligations to “do the business” at all!
