So you are interested in Essential Oils- but you are not sure if they are for you. Or perhaps you are unsure about spending what seems like a lot all at once. Maybe you just want to try a few oils and see how it goes, but you keep hearing about how the Premium Starter Kit is the way to go. Why should you invest in the whole kit?
The Young Living Premium Starter Kit really is the best way to get started- first of all, it is an amazing value. Everything in the kit would retail starting at around $300.00 with the cheapest diffuser option. Starting at $160.00, the deal is undeniable.
The kit includes the Everyday Oil Collection, which is 10 of the most commonly used and most useful oils- plus a bonus oil and samples, and of course the diffuser of your choice. These oils are chosen to help new users get started with at least one thing to reach for in almost any situation. Sometimes, there are more than one option just from those 11 oils!
We're talking something for immune support, respiratory support, sleep, relieving stress, skin support, soothing muscles, supporting digestion, mood support, freshening air and neutralizing odors, laundry aid, and more. There are over 150 uses for the oils that come in the kit! How is that for value?
The idea with getting started with therapeutic grade oils is not to take on a new expense. None of us are looking for that in today's economic climate. The idea is transfer spending and reducing costs in other places- investing in products that support true health, and not into products that are artificial and potentially harmful that only mask symptoms and perhaps create more. As you use your oils and support your family in health- true health- the need for more intervention will reduce. You are likely to see less missed work and school days too. Notice the wording I used- investing. This really is an investment in your health.
Purchasing a Premium Starter Kit takes back control as you become CEO of your own health- and your family's. Other side effects may be but limited to : improved mood, confidence and "Living above the line" a concept that really resonates with us here at Peaceful Health and Young Living overall- shifting the focus away from illness and over management and putting it on true health and supporting healthy systems. Even just a simple shift in how we see things can start make an impact.
So yes, you may just want to try a few oils. That is exactly what the PSK is. If you breakdown the cost of the least expensive kit option, it brings each oil to about $13.00 each. WOW. This is really impressive when you look at the individual oils that come with the kit, especially Frankincense and PanAway, which are expensive oils. The retail cost of the 5ml bottle of PanAway is $46.38. A small bottle of Frankincense is worth around $40.00. The cheapest diffuser option retails at $83.88. Two of three single oils at retail cost could easily add up to more than half the cost of the kit, and without a diffuser, you are missing out on one of the major ways to experience oils.
If the cost of the kit is really going to hurt you financially- there are ways to make it work. Make your lunch for a month instead of eating out, Skip the coffee shop for a few weeks and make that at home, Cook more dinners at home. I know of someone in my group who had a garage sale to raise the money. There are ways to make it happen, and long term, the benefits your family will receive will be more than worth it.
Another way to help the cost of your kit is to have a home event. Ask the person who introduced you to the oils to lead a class in your home and invite your friends. Young Living rewards members for referring and bringing on new members. We get a initial bonus as well as the ability to earn commission on our members' orders. Imagine the possibilities? You help your friends find improved health and you can earn money to pay for your products. There is always a way to make it work. Talk to the person who introduced you to Young Living to figure out a plan for you. When people really want oils they find a way, and no one should be without them.
1. Before you begin the sign up process- read this from beginning to end. Decide what you want to order before you begin.
2. Go to https://www.youngliving.com/vo/#/signup/start
3. Choose member. Members have access to the Starter Kits and get 24% off retail prices! Retail customers do not have access to the specially priced kits and pay full price for their products. Being a retail customer isn’t nearly as much fun and has no benefits of membership. Not sure what to get? Here is Why you should buy the Premium Starter Kit.
4. Membership Details- enter the member number of the person who introduced you to Young Living. Make sure you get that number from them before you start the sign up process. It helps if you have already decided on what you are going to order as well before you start.
Entering their number ensures the person who introduced you to YL gets credit for your order, and you become part of their network. Hopefully this person helps you get oriented and teaches you how to use the oils.
If you do not have a person in your life who introduced you to Young Living- e-mail me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. I will help you get a sponsor. Sponsors are so important to help you learn and provide you with community that is a vital part of the experience.
Choose your country and language, click next
5. Fill out all your info, choose a username and password. You will also be asked to choose a 4 digit code. This you will need to give to customer service whenever you call. You will also need to feel comfortable sharing this pin number with your sponsor if she/he ever calls CS on your behalf. That signals to CS that the person calling has your permission to speak to them on your behalf.
At sign up we have the option to give our social security number or tax ID. What's the deal with that?
Because Young Living is a company that does not spend money on public advertising, they use that money to go to members for referring new members. Word of mouth is how people usually find out about Young Living. it is a Federal policy that if someone makes over $600.00 a year in thank you referral bonuses, we must claim them on our taxes. Young Living sends a 1099 form. To do so they must have our tax ID info. This used to be mandatory to become a member, but now is optional. If you intend to share these amazing products with others and perhaps pay for your products or build a thriving business, t makes the most sense to give this info at sign up.
If you are not sure if this will apply to you, you can hold off. Most people who end up earning money with Young Living do not plan to at sign up, it happens naturally and almost accidentally. If you do hit that $600.00 mark in thank you checks from Young Living, you will need to submit that number. The choice is now freely yours, and everyone loves choice, right?
The good news is YL is a long standing, trustworthy company with no history of security breach, and all that shows in our files are the last 4 digits.
Agree to terms and conditions, etc.
6. Choose your Kit
This may seem really confusing- but there are actually less options than it seems. Basically it comes down to 3 kits to get started- the PSK which gives you the oils and diffuser, a Thieves Starter kit, or a NIngXia Red kit. I don’t know the actual stats, but I would say probably 90% of people join with the Premium Starter Oil Kit.
Each oil kit below comes with 11 oils, diffuser of your choice, and free membership! The only difference in the first 4 kits below are the diffusers. See Graphic below for details in diffuser differences.
As you place your order for your kit, you can add extra products you may want at this time as well. Wholesale prices are effective immediately, which is pretty sweet!
Not looking for the oil kit at this time but wanting to get started as a member? There are 2 other kits available as well! There is a Thieves Starter Kit and a NingXia Red. Both are excellent options. Below are some snazzy pics of what those kits look like. You can see all the starter kits here and if you click on the individual kit it will list everything that is included if you want to get a closer look.
7. Essential Rewards!
At this point they will give you the option to sign up for Essential Rewards. I cannot recommend Essential rewards enough. This amazing buying program gives members two ways to earn free products every month! Signing up on ER and getting additional products will get you earning points right away towards free products. Minimum commitment is only 50PV per month, and we earn percentages of our orders towards free products.
Curious what Essential Reward means exactly- watch this video.
I will go into more detail about Essential rewards in another post, in the meantime ask your sponsor if you want more information now. It is well worth giving it a try and I know you will love it. if you are looking to start swapping over your current products to cleaner ones or have some health goals, this is the best way for you to be spending your money with Young Living.
If you wish to sign up right away, go ahead and choose yes and choose your products. If you choose your first order to arrive in the same month you join, you will earn 10% of your total order in points. Your kit is 100PV alone. If you order the kit plus 50PV in extra products you will earn 15 points right away towards future free products, and earn you some free stuff based on the monthly promotions.
Please see your sponsor for more info on Essential Rewards and monthly promotions if you need more information before signing up.
If you do not want to sign up now, you can say “no thanks” and move on. But believe me, you will want to be on ER eventually, unless you have an aversion to free stuff!
If you do choose to join Essential Rewards you will add products to your order. You can choose an Essential Rewards kit, or you can create your own order by selecting individual products. If you get your first order with your Premium Starter Kit, you will earn points on your kit as well! I usually recommend people try it for 3 months and see what they think. You can stop the program whenever you want, but after 3 months you are almost to earning back 20% on your orders! This adds up to some nice free products.
8. Adding More Products
After choosing your kit, if you wish to add additional products but are not selecting the Essential Rewards program, this is where you would add them. Select "add more products" and go from there. You can type in a search for the name of the product, or if you know the product number, you can search for that. Product numbers can be found on Youngliving.com/en_US/products.
When getting started with oils, I HIGHLY suggest you add this product to your kit order. V-6 massage oil is an excellent product to use as a carrier oil- a carrier oil acts as a dilution solution for topical application. I love to use this because it is not greasy, and won't stain clothes or sheets. If you have kids especially you will want this, but also this is handy for applying "hotter" oils topically like Thieves, Oregano etc.
If you or someone in your family is allergic to almonds, sesame, coconut or has severe celiac you may want to avoid this product. It contains: coconut, sesame, grapeseed, wheat germ, sunflower and olive oils. Product Info on V-6 Massage oil.
At this point you can complete your order.
If you find you are having website issues or just not sure about something, it is best to contact member services right away. They can help you complete the order quickly and easily. You can call 1-800-371-3515.
Then sit back, pat yourself on the back for making such a great choice for your health, and start looking out the window for the Fedex man to arrive! You are now a Young Living member!
