Hi friends! I wanted to make a post as a point of reference for anyone interested in getting their Young Living oil kit, or Thieves kit, and joining my team!
If you’re ready to get started you can grab your kit here: https://bit.ly/2Ns9lzu
For those who have questions, this post will quickly cover the basics and assist you in signing up. I tend to get the same questions over and over so I thought I’d answer them for you here.
*Sign up instructions at very bottom of post*
Q: What does it mean to join Young Living and purchase a starter kit?
A: ‘Joining’ YL is simply purchasing your kit, and in turn you receive the wholesale discount on all products you purchase throughout the year and other member perks. So, when you go to restock your thieves cleaner etc. you get to purchase it for a discounted member price (24% off). You are not committing to anything by purchasing a kit.
Q: What is essential rewards? Do I have to say yes?
A: Essential rewards (ER) is YL’s monthly order program. You earn points on all purchases made, that you can redeem for free products. To be on ER you need to spend a minimum of $50/month. You customize what you want to order each month, choose your ship date, and can edit these as much as you want. YOU pick the products you want, it isn’t a random box. You can also cancel this at any time.
If you plan to go all in with the non-toxic lifestyle, I would say yes to ER. It’s easy to spend $50/month because you can order things you’re already buying elsewhere like laundry detergent, toothpaste, hand soap, shampoo, vitamins, lotion, skincare, etc. Not just oils. So, if you’re wanting to commit and slowly switch over all the products in your house to healthy ones, you want to be earning points back!
You also receive free gifts at 3,6,9, 12 consecutive months. I recently received my 6 month gift which was a bottle of Thieves vitality oil!
I would say YES when you purchase your kit, even if you don’t plan on staying on it long-term, so you earn points on the kit purchase which you can redeem on your next order.
*If you have interest in doing the business, you need to be on Essential Rewards
Q: I heard there is a business side to YL/that you can make it your job, how do you do this?
A: Yes! So many people have made YL their full-time job. I love work from home opportunities and this one is really easy. YL will compensate you for referring your friends/family/neighbors/co-workers/whoever! Very simple. Once you fall in love with your products, you can share about it with whoever you want and receive a bonus + commission on your referrals. This is paid out every month. I will mentor you on the business side + add you to my team’s Facebook groups that have tons of info on growing your business.
The coolest part is that all you need to start is a starter kit (Thieves or oil kit) I can’t think of many businesses you can start for under $200. Most businesses require thousands and thousands of dollars to start. And you’re getting product that you keep so you have absolutely nothing to lose.
If you’re a stay at home Mom looking to earn extra money, this is such a unique way because you can literally work as much or as little as you want. During naps, at night when the kids are asleep- whenever! You can go all in and make it a career, or you can use it to earn a little extra cash. There are no selling requirements. You just share as much or as little as you want!
Below is the yearly income disclosure that shows the earning potential at different ranks:
Q: Should I purchase the oil kit or the thieves kit?
A: This is totally up to you! I joined with the Thieves kit because I wanted to replace my household products that I’m using all day everyday first. The kit comes with 2 bottles of thieves cleaner concentrate so it doesn’t look like much in the picture, but since it’s a concentrate and you only use a capful, you are actually getting about 50 bottles of household cleaner! So picture that when you look at the Thieves kit! I also wanted to ditch candles and toxic fragrances, so every month I add a few oils to my Essential Rewards order and grow my oil collection that way!
With that being said, I have now purchased lots of oils and love and use them daily and I think you can’t go wrong starting either way! Just depends on if you’d rather start with a diffuser + a bunch of yummy oils, or lots of household products! Both are amazing
Here are the oils that come in the oil kit in addition to the diffuser:
In my opinion it doesn’t matter too much which kit you start with, because whichever products you don’t get at first, you’ll likely add to your order the following month!
This is the bottle of Thieves concentrate, and the glass bottle I use with it! You add 1 capful and fill the rest with water! Simple and all natural! For members, the price of the Thieves concentrate is $22.50, so each bottle of cleaner ends up costing around $1!
Q: Can I just purchase 1 item instead of a kit?
A: Yes, you can but I don’t recommend it. You are getting a super discounted bundle of products when you buy a kit. If you add up the price of each product in the bundle you’ll see that it’s so worth it to get the kit. You save so much $ this way. If you buy one product at at time, you pay the retail price instead of the member price. You also don’t have the option of doing the business this way. If you really want to purchase just one item, you can still use the same sign up link and select ‘retail’ customer instead of member.
Q: But it’s so expensive!!
A: I know, it seems like a lot to spend at once. But like I mentioned you are getting 50 bottles of household cleaner, replacing so many toxic products in your home, + getting a discount on future purchases. The Thieves starter kit was recently reduced from $165 to $125.
Personally, I just cut out random spending for the month and stopped spending money on Starbucks, dining out, random clothing purchases, etc. and purchased something that is an investment in my health and my business!
You can earn your money back just by signing up 3 people, which you could technically do the same week, or month you get your kit!
People think nothing of spending $25 on toxic candles over and over, and you can literally make hundreds of personalized diffuser blends with your oils using only a few drops, and its healthy! If you’re a candle fan, trust me this is going to save you money.
I have a whole blog post on the Thieves kit, as well as a highlight on my Instagram where I share a haul of everything in the kit, but here is a picture of what you get:
(Again, picture 50 bottles of household cleaner here!)
These are the most common questions I get asked, If you have others feel free to e-mail me: EricaMynattYL@gmail.com
Here is the link to grab your kit and join my team: https://www.youngliving.com/vo/#/signup/new-start?sponsorid=21053695&enrollerid=21053695&isocountrycode=US&culture=en-US&type=member
SIGNING UP INSTRUCTIONS:
Step 1: When you open the link, it will take you to the oil kit, and there will be a tab for ‘other premium kits’ where you can select the Thieves kit depending on which one you want.
Step 2: It will ask if you want to sign up for Essential Rewards and make your kit your first ER order, if you want to earn points back on this purchase- click yes! You can cancel anytime but since you’re spending money on the kit you don’t want to miss out on free points.
Once you click yes it will ask, “Do you want to use your Premium Starter Kit (PSK) as your first Essential Rewards (ER) order?”- say yes.
Step 3: This step asks you to “set up your monthly order”- so it’s asking what you want to receive next month. For quick sign-up you can just click the ‘Thieves Essential Rewards’ for now, and then once you’ve completed signing up and you’re a member you can go in and edit your next order later on. You can log in and edit your order as much as you want before it ships every month so you have plenty of time to change this up.
