HOW DO I USE MY ESSENTIAL OILS?
THERE ARE THREE COMMON WAYS OILS ARE USED: AROMATICALLY (INHALING OR DIFFUSING), TOPICALLY (APPLYING TO THE SKIN) AND INTERNALLY (INGESTING THEM). WE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH GUIDES, RESOURCES AND ALL THE INFORMATION YOU WANT AND NEED FOR HOW TO USE YOUR OILS. PLUS, EACH BOTTLE OF YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OIL IS LABELLED WITH DIRECTIONS FOR HOW THAT OIL CAN BE USED. THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD KNOW IS THAT ESSENTIAL OILS ARE INCREDIBLY MULTIPURPOSE!

SINCE ESSENTIAL OILS ARE ALL CHEMICALLY DIVERSE, EACH ONE IS MULTI-FUNCTIONAL. IF YOU ARE NOT YET FAMILIAR WITH USING ESSENTIAL OILS, ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO EXPERIENCE THEIR POWER IS BY USING THEM TO SUPPORT YOUR BODY’S WELLNESS.

WE USE OUR OILS FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING!! WHETHER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR OILS TO HELP YOU SLEEP, FOR NATURAL IMMUNE SUPPORT, FOR ENERGY, FOR FOCUS, FOR RELAXATION, FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES, FOR NATURAL ALTERNATIVES TO CLEANING PRODUCTS, THE LIST + POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS, THERE IS AN OIL FOR THAT!! AND YOU WILL LEARN ALONG THE WAY, THERE AREN’T HARD SET RULES, BUT PART OF JOINING OUR OILS TEAM IS THAT YOU GET ACCESS TO THE MOST AMAZING RESOURCES & OUR PRIVATE FACEBOOK COMMUNITY.

VITALITY V. REGULAR — WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO?
THE VITALITY LINE IS OUR SUPPLEMENT LINE. THE WHITE LABEL VITALITY LINE CONTAINS THE EXACT SAME OIL AS THEIR COLOR LABEL COUNTERPART. THEY ARE SIMPLY LABELED AS VITALITY SO THAT YOU KNOW IT IS SAFE FOR INGESTION, IF YOU CHOOSE.

ARE OILS SAFE TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS WHILE PREGNANT OR NURSING?
YES, HOWEVER — WE STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT, PRIOR TO USE OF ESSENTIAL OILS, YOU REACH OUT TO YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR OR A TRAINED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER WHO IS EXPERIENCED IN ESSENTIAL OIL USAGE. WE ALSO RECOMMEND INFORMING YOUR MIDWIFE THAT YOU ARE USING ESSENTIAL OILS WHILE PREGNANT, SO THEY ARE AWARE AND CAN HELP YOU IF NEEDED. IT IS GENERALLY RECOMMENDED TO AVOID OVERUSE OF CLARY SAGE, HYSSOP, IDAHO TANSY, SAGE, FENNEL, AND WINTERGREEN AS WELL AS THE BLENDS AND SUPPLEMENTS THAT CONTAIN THESE OILS DURING PREGNANCY. YOU CAN FIND A COMPLETE LIST HERE.

MOST ESSENTIAL OILS CAN BE USED SAFELY DURING PREGNANCY AND NURSING AND ARE A WONDERFUL AND NATURAL WAY TO BALANCE THE MOOD AND SUPPORT THE BODY DURING THIS SPECIAL TIME.

CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS ON MY LITTLE ONES?
YES! ESSENTIAL OILS ARE SUCH A WONDERFUL TOOL FOR LITTLE ONES, THAT’S HOW WE GOT STARTER OURSELVES! MANY ESSENTIAL OILS ARE APPROPRIATE FOR USE ON CHILDREN BUT SHOULD BE DILUTED WITH A CARRIER OIL PRIOR TO USE. YOUNG LIVING EVEN HAS AND ENTIRE LINE OF OILS THAT COME PREDILUTED WITH CARRIER OIL AND ARE INTENDED FOR DIRECT APPLICATION ON CHILDREN (BECAUSE EASIER WINS!). WE TEACH ALL THE MAMAS ON OUR TEAM HOW TO SAFELY AND CONFIDENTLY USE OILS WITH THEIR BABIES & CHILDREN.

there are no minimum sales amounts at all. Most Young Living members don’t sell the oils (95% of them to be exact). instead, They purchase from Young Living because they value quality essential oils for their own personal use. If you ever decide you'd like to make some extra income, we will happily share everything we know about making this business work for YOUR lifestyle so that you can be successful. we also have a monthly bootcamp for those interested in the business!


AM I REQUIRED TO MAKE A MINIMUM PURCHASE EACH MONTH?
Nope! There are no minimum monthly purchase requirements. To keep your membership and retain the wholesale member discount, you just have to spend $50 per calendar year. If you choose to hop on Essential rewards, the minimum purchase amount is 50pv per month - which is nothing once you begin swapping out toxins from your home!


So then, WHAT IS THE ESSENTIAL REWARDS PROGRAM?
First and foremost, signing up for the ER program is not mandatory and You are not required  to automatically sign up for it when you become a wholesale member. If you decide to sign up however, it is the best monthly subscription box ever! It is the best way to ensure your favorite Young Living products arrive, in hand every month! the deets: you place a monthly order that is at least worth 50 PV (each product has a PV value that you'll see listed in the product guide, which is usually equal to dollar value), you will get discounted shipping and accumulate points with every order. your monthly order is completely customizable every month and so is the the day of the month you want the order to process. You can save up to 20% of your monthly order in points and when you're ready, cash them in for free products via quick order! we love to save our points up for a few months so we can stock up on our favorite higher-priced oils for FREE!
