How to Get Started With Oils

So excited that you're ready to start using essential oils! You SERIOUSLY will not regret it.

Not only are essential oils amazing for wellness..once you start using them you will quickly realize just how many toxic, chemical filled products are likely in your home... and that you have the option to switch to safe, natural products instead. At least that was the realization I had (and oh how grateful I am!). In this post, I will cover step-by-step how to get started, and cover some questions you might have about about joining this community!


There are SO many essential oil companies out there, but I personally choose & use Young Living’s oils and products. You can read why here.


So how do you get started? With a starter kit, of course. This will give you everything you need to get setup and begin experiencing the oils.


The best (and most economical) thing to do is to purchase a premium starter kit. This is a great way to ease into the essential oils world - you receive 12 of YL’s most loved oils, a diffuser, and lots of samples & info to get your started on this journey!




How to get your premium starter kit:


Sign up to become a YL member. There are NO monthly fees, NO monthly minimums and NO strings attached when you become a member. It’s basically like creating a login for any other site..except becoming a member gets you access to the starter kit (which is discounted by about 50%, (giving you $300+ worth of products for $160) and it also gives you 24% off all YL products!


Let's get you signed up! You can sign up by clicking here and choosing Member. There is also an option to sign up as a retail customer – retail unfortunately does not give you access to the starter kit, and you do not get the 24% discount. Since there are no strings attached with signing up to become a member, most people go the member route.



After signing up, go ahead and get that premium starter kit! There are a few different options – most people go with the kit that includes the Dewdrop diffuser, which is $160. You can also upgrade to a kit with a more advanced diffuser, these are a little more expensive but SO pretty and can really glam up your diffusing. I personally went for the Aria Home diffuser kit and so happy with my choice! Rainstone is also another fav for a sleeker room decor.


Then... wait patiently for your magical oils to come in the mail. But don’t worry, in the meantime I’ll be shooting you an email with info + tips to get you started. AND I will make sure to get you on the Facebook groups I am personally in that teaches you ALL about how to actually use the oils. It’s basically like having your own little network of awesome, badass women who are SUPER knowledgeable when it comes to using these oils on yourself, on your kids, and in your home. Owning the oils is one thing…but being apart of the community & gaining knowledge about clean living is seriously PRICELESS!


Okay, I’m obsessed..how do I restock my oils & try new products?


Great question. The answer for that is all the glory that is the Essential Rewards program. AKA your monthly wellness box. While being a YL member does not require any kind of monthly minimum (it's not a subscription service), you do have the option to join ER, which is. And if you’re going to continue to purchase Young Living oils & products, this seriously is the way to go!!

Here’s why I signed up:


For each ER order you place you rack up loyalty points (anywhere from 10-25%), which can be later used as cash for more YL products.

*There are promos each month, so when you place your monthly order to restock your favorites, you’ll get free oils and/or products in the mail as well!

*Everything comes straight to your door (with discounted shipping) no running here, there & everywhere to stock up on the products you need.

*You get loyalty gifts along with your order at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.

*You get the peace of mind knowing everything is safe, clean, and free of toxins for you & your family.

*All you have to do to remain enrolled is place a 50PV order (PV=purchase volume, for most items 1 PV = $1) each month. So that could be a few oils, a few products from the Thieves line, home cleaning products, supplements, some all natural non-toxic makeup, another diffuser, etc.
