How To Get Started With Essential Oils

One of the questions I get asked all of the time is how to get started with essential oils.

What’s crazy to me is that the media always talks about essential oils as some new trend when people have been using essential oils for thousands of years! There are lots of places you can buy essential oils, but I really love how Young Living is a trusted source and a pioneer in bringing the use of therapeutic oils to the United States. And {of course}, we are running a better-than-amazing special that includes everything you need to get started using essential oils.

I use essential oils ever single day. Here are some of my favorite uses for essential oils:

  • I use Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint in my essential oil diffuser to get through allergy season. In fact, my daughter stopped needing prescription allergy medication once we started diffusing it in her room.
  • I use Peace & Calming whenever my legs feel all jumpy at night. I just put a couple of drops on the back of my knees to calm my legs when the are being a little restless and I always fall right to sleep.
  • I use Thieves in my diffuser any time someone in the family has something contagious. We use all the Thieves cleaning products in our household. (The Thieves all-purpose cleaner can really be used for anything in the whole world, I once used it to save a laptop from spilled lemonade and it got rid of all the sticky feeling without ruining the computer!)
  • I used Rosemary and Lavender when we had a lice breakout at school and my daughter came home bug free!
  • When I was suffering from pneumonia, I tried all sorts of ways to catch my breath, but it was a mix of Thieves Cough Drops and RC that finally did the trick.

I was really overwhelmed with all the options as I started with essential oils a while back. That is one of the reasons why I really wanted to pull together all the BEST resources. But this is an awesome starter kit with everything you need to actually USE your essential oils.

When you order, you get a premium Young Living starter kit (which is, on its own, a really great deal for a limited time at this price).

What is included in the Young Living Starter Kit?

  • 11 essential oils in 5 ml bottles. Lavender, Copaiba, Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, Thieves, Purification, RC, DiGize, PanAway and Stress Away.
  • A Roller Fitment (You use this to roll your oils right onto your body.)
  • 10 cards that help you share oils with your friends.
  • 10 cute little bottles to share with your friends.

  • A product guide. (So you can actually know HOW to use all the stuff you’re getting.)
  • Essential Oil Magazine with cool tips, tricks and recipes for your oils

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does signing up obligate me to sell Young Living?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?

There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order. If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?

It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it? I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me. Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant. Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing. With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several. I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.

How will I know which oils to use for what?

One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils! The reference guide that I’m giving away as part of this promotion is also a HUGE resource. You can look up almost anything in it and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.

Does Young Living only sell essential oils?

The answer to this one was surprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.
