What are essential oils?
Essential oils (EO) are the highly concentrated version of the natural oils in plants. Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. You can access the power of essential oils many ways, but the most common practices include aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption. These methods bring the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals to your home, family, and life.
What is Young Living?
Young Living (YL) is a Lehi, Utah based company who is a world leader and producer of the best, most authentic essential oils in the world. The company was founded in 1993 by Donald Gary Young. YL is also a multi-level marketing company (MLM) for those who are interested to do the business, which is optional. They have a wide range of essential oils and products made from these oils that is available for purchase for members and non-members.

Why choose Young Living essential oils?

Young Living embraces a rigorous quality control standard to help ensure their products meet strict specifications. Seed to Seal is their set of standards that helps ensure that with every pure essential oil and Young Living product your family uses, you’re enjoying the benefits of our global resources, industry leadership, and over two decades of innovation. The result? A pristine final product that you know has been created with conscientious Sourcing, Science, and Standards—the three pillars of Seed to Seal.
Young Living also designed and built the largest, most technologically advanced essential oil distillery in North America. Young Living is also the only essential oil company that owns their own farms and have partnered with farms that are willing to live up to their standards for growing, harvesting and distilling.
Did you know that you can actually visit a Young Living farm (the YL lavender farm in Mona, Utah is amazing!) and get to see how the essential oils are made? Members also get a chance to visit other farms, plant a seed at the farm, etc.! No other essential oil company does this!
What is a Young Living Membership?
Young Living have these main types of membership:
Retail Customer – retail pricing, no requirements, no other benefits/perks, not eligible for rewards program
Member (Preferred Customer) – uses products for personal use, wholesale pricing (24% off retail), exclusive members-only benefits and rewards program, does not participate in business opportunity, uses products for personal use
Member (Business Builder) – uses products for personal use and profit, wholesale pricing, exclusive members-only benefits and rewards program, earns generous compensation plan benefits and rank-specific perks
Retail Customer membership is basically like having a personal account you would create for any online store to be able to make a purchase, like Ebay, Amazon, etc. This membership does not require you to purchase anything during registration. You can sign up to create your account and just order any product later. However, you get the products at the full retail prices and cannot participate in any compensation plan or rewards program or avail members-only specials.
Member is the best membership to have! You get products for wholesale prices and the only requirement is you purchase a Premium Starter Kit during registration (which is a great start to use the essential oils). This membership also allows you to subscribe to the Essential Rewards program (during registration or later on) to earn free products, avail members-only specials/benefits, and participate in members-only sales and promotions. Everyone starts as a Preferred Customer. But when a member enrolls someone and starts doing the business, they become a Business Builder and is eligible for the compensation plan and rank-specific perks.
Since YL is also an MLM company, am I required to do the business/sell/recruit?
Absolutely not! Though many members have done the business to earn extra income and rewards, most YL members actually stay as a Preferred Customer member only and only takes advantage of the wholesale pricing and members-only perks. You can simply stay as a member. There is no pressure to do the business at all, it is totally optional. The only requirement you ever have to do is to buy a minimum of 50PV worth of products per year to keep your account active.
However, if you are interested to do the business and transition from being a Preferred Customer to be a Business Builder, just let us know and we can help you learn more about it and get started.
What is the Essential Rewards program?
