Does signing up make me a “distributor”? Do I have to sell?
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.
Why to sign up as a wholesale member then..?
As a retail customer you will always pay the full price for all the oils, but as a wholesale member, you are able to buy Young Living products with a 24% discount. It just makes sense to sign up as a wholesale member from the beginning.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
Nope! 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).
If you want to become a business builder, and sign up others to join in, and make a commission of your team's sales, there is a minimum purchase of about $100 required to receive your commissions. But you don't have to worry about that until your business has grown, if you decide you also want to sell the oils.
Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?
Good question, and I was thinking the same thing when signing up. As a blogger I am connected to thousands of people, and I have seen a lot of people in my network to have experiences with different essential oil companies over the past couple of years. I have read a lot of information about different companies, and I do recommend you do your own research as well. To me Young Living was a no-brainer just from the caliber of the friends I know recommend it, and how using the oils and selling them have effected positively in my friends and their families.
I can also 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. Read about their Seed to Seal promise.
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. I really hope to visit some of their farms in the future to see it myself.
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! A large group of people has already tested the oils for different uses, it really is easy to find different ways to use the oils. I will be sharing all of my favorites here on monthly blog posts.
Does Young Living only sell essential oils?
Nope! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils, but there’s a wide variety of products available.
Why should I sign up with ENJOY LIFE OILS AND SKIMBACO LIFESTYLE TEAM?
Enjoy Life Oils and Skimbaco Lifestyle team are pretty new to Young Living. Many of us are just now discovering the benefits of essential oils, but as many of us have been using natural remedies for years. Our team is already international, so we also have experience even if you live outside the USA, or even if you are nomadic or travel a lot.
From our team leader Katja Presnal:
"I use the oils to make my entire family feel better. In the years while living in Sweden I started using even more natural products, and on my travels I got to see how herbal medicine is used all over the world. I visited a farm where they farm aloe for beauty products in Italy, in Morocco I saw how Argan oil is made, and in Sri Lanka I learned more about ancient Asian herbal medicine. I bought natural oils on all of these trips, and loved using them. I love the quality of Young Living products compared to many of the products I have used in the past.
On the business side: if you are interested joining our team, I think I know something about community building and helping others to succeed, and I would love to help you to start your own online business as well. As part of my team, you would get all my online marketing tips I have learned over the past 10 years of working in the social media industry. I will mentor, and personally help you to make this a business for you, if that’s what you are interested in.
I also joined a specific group of YL bloggers, because I already had so many friends who were part of it, and you can join us too. So basically ALL the info needed to live healthier lifestyle with the oils is within an easy reach, and so is all the info to make this a business to get you income to do the things you really want to do in life. It just was a no-brainer to me, and I hope you will feel the same way."
