Hello, Beautiful and Loyal Readers!

Hi! If you’re reading this, then you are probably interested in getting into essential oils, are interested in seeing what a toxin-free lifestyle looks like, want to treat yourself and your body to healthier, safer products, or are interested in changing your financial standing and becoming an oily boss yourself. If any of these apply to you, then please keep reading and I will walk you through the steps you need to take to sign up and get the ball rolling.
I wanted to create this blog just for you to give you some more info on how to sign up and what all of it means! I know this stuff can be confusing, so I’m going to give this my best shot and try to make it as user friendly and easy to understand as I can! Here goes!
In a Nutshell
- To get your products: either become a member and save 24% off your products(wholesale), or pay full price and order like you would from a traditional online store (retail)
- To do the business: purchase a premium starter kit and sign up for Essential Rewards
So what does this all mean? Let’s break it down.
It’s easier to understand if you follow along on your screen as we go through this blog. Start out by opening up the website and seeing for yourself! I think it would be highly beneficial to have two screens open so you can read this and follow through all the steps yourself. Do whatever works for you! To start off and get you enrolled to join my team, click this link and make sure the number 17932429 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields. Quintessa DuBois (that would be me) should appear. 🙂 I will earn a small commission off this, so I would greatly appreciate your help!
Member or Retail?
Entering the link, you will see these two options right away. I definitely advise ANYONE signing up to sign up as a MEMBER, regardless of your intentions. All this means is that you will receive the 24% off discount! It does not mean that you will ever have to sell anything or commit to a subscription of any kind-I’ll explain more on this below. Also, if you decide to get a starter kit, you will always be a member and will have the 24% off discount for life!
After choosing MEMBER as your option, you will be prompted to choose your starter kit. If you choose to shop retail, you are simply paying more money on your products and aren’t helping out your good friend (me) to earn a small paycheck. I’m an open book. This is income for me and is largely how I put food on the table for my family. What feels better than buying stuff you already want/need and supporting a friend while doing it? After learning all of this, paying full price with no additional benefits really didn’t make any sense to me.
Becoming a member means you have to choose a starter kit when you are initially signing up. Since this is only a one-time chance, I definitely recommend the premium starter kits to anyone looking to try the products out because this is the best way to dive into the world of essential oils and is the best way that you really get the most bang for your buck. You will only be able to purchase one starter kit while signing up as a member. After your account is created, you will no longer be able to purchase the starter kits (unless you enroll a spouse, etc.).
When I signed up, I chose the most pricey starter kit, The Aria, because I knew that was the diffuser I really wanted to get eventually, so why not get what I wanted if I’m really committing myself to this lifestyle and business? It is truly such a beautiful diffuser and I decided that splurging and getting that one right away was the best and cheapest way to do it. I have no regrets. Here’s why.
As an added bonus, when you sign up as a MEMBER, I will be personally inviting you into all of my team’s private facebook groups where you will have access to learning everything you need to know about the products: how to use them, tips, tricks, fun DIY’s, and tools for business success (should you decide to pursue it)! Nothing sucks more than getting your stuff in the mail and not knowing what to do with it all and feeling like you just wasted your money. There is a whole community of amazing people and you will get to become a part of that!
ADDITIONAL BONUS for my teammates: If you are at all considering joining me on this business adventure – we have an amazing team passionate about rising one another up. We grow together and you are never going to be in it alone or doing anything by yourself. I talk to my team members almost daily and they have always been there to answer any questions and give me any guidance and direction I needed. Another huge plus is, though it isn’t required, our team often stacks into each other to help us all build rank. It is a strategic way for us to support each other and grow our teams faster and really benefits the whole team. I know that I’ve said this many times before in other blogs and YouTube videos, but all new business members that sign up with me will also receive a welcome packet containing tools to aide you in your success as well as an oily roller blend or massage oil blend courtesy of yours truly. (I make these for my new members because I just love freebies and giving gifts all while supporting you on your new business!) Once I see that you have signed up, I will be in contact with you right away to work out the details!
As if there weren’t already enough perks to becoming a member, Young Living has also decided that they will reward the person under their compensation plan for taking the time to share the oils with others and investing in their oils journey. Basically, you can get paid from signing up other members.
After learning what we have covered so far, if you are planning on getting your oils (etc.), there were two different options you could have chosen from and here is the breakdown:
OPTION ONE// MEMBER//Wholesale Customer// (click here) – highly recommended
- No renewal fees; simply purchase a minimum of $50pv (about $50) worth of product per year and your account will stay active
- No order minimums – you are free to order whatever you like, whenever you like at that special discount of 24% off retail prices
- “Distributor” status; meaning that you are an active member and are never under any expectation or obligation to sell-ever. All Young Living Members are referred to as Distributors and are never pressured to sell.
- Your own Member number; If your family or friends decide to become a member and order through this number, Young Living will send you compensation in the form of $$$. (again, even though you have “Distributor” as a title, this does NOT mean that you EVER have to share oils with anyone or get anyone to sign up. You can keep it all to yourself if you wish! However, a lot of people have a hard time NOT sharing after trying out their products and this has resulted in ‘accidental’ paychecks!)
OPTION TWO//Retail Customer// (click here)
- No starter kit required.
- Order products whenever you would like (but pay 24% more than a wholesale customer).
I think it’s great that Young Living gives you both of these options right away because it takes out the pressure of selling and sharing about the oils: it makes it all about the products themselves, which is how it should be. The member/wholesale option really is the best option in my opinion because you are automatically getting the lowest prices and there aren’t any additional mark-ups! I doubt most people end up regretting that they enrolled as a member/wholesale customer even though they are called “Distributors” after the fact because the Starter Kit investment is recovered very quickly just from the money you save off of retail pricing.
Last Membership Benefit! Essential Rewards!
After you choose your kit, you also have an option to sign yourself up for an amazing rewards program! This scared me at first, I’ll be honest, because I didn’t want to commit to a monthly order subscription. I hate getting randomly charged for things and getting caught off guard since I normally have a tight budget as is. BUT! After doing a little bit of investigating, I’m so happy I chose to sign up for Essential Rewards!
What is Essential Rewards?
It is a monthly ordering program where you automatically earn 10-20% back on your purchases each month as points for free products (basically store credit)! You can also get lower shipping costs and are able to grow your own business off of this and receive commissions from members you sign up!
If you choose to sign up with Essential Rewards, please know that you do NOT have to sign up with any certain kit or pre-determined package! You can customize it completely with whatever Young Living products you want every month! In order to qualify, there is a minimum order of 50 PV (product value: usually about one point per dollar, or about $50) however you can cancel this anytime you like and there are never any penalties for doing so!
For me, every month, I simply update my order with whatever products I’m low on or need around the house (dish soap, shampoo, detergent, etc.) and add them to my monthly order. That’s it!
- Just open up the Young Living website and sign into your account.
- Click on the “Essential Rewards” tab
- Click “My Monthly Order”
- Click “Change Order” and add/remove/customize the order with whatever you want
- Be sure to “save” it and your done!
- You can also choose what day of the month you want your order to process on! And change it whenever you like! No more surprise auto-payments!
Purchasing your starter kit when initially becoming a member and signing up for Essential Rewards are the only things that need to happen to be do the business and be eligible for commissions! Instead of the 50 PV requirement, business members only need to commit to an order of 100 PV (roughly $100) on their monthly orders. This may sound like a lot at first, but all depends on what you order and how you plan on using ER.
You don’t notice it as much if you simply ‘ditch and switch.’ For example, instead of buying my household goods at Target or Walmart, I now simply get them mailed to me on Essential Rewards! Cleaner/safer products with cash back and a business potential!? It really was a no brainer for me, but everyone is different and needs to do what they feel is best for them and their families!
As a member with Essential Rewards, you also get additional promotions & freebies every month-the higher the order the more freebies. The promotions vary each month. By ordering a Premium starter kit, aside from the pure value and savings on the kit itself, you can also use it as your first Essential Rewards order and get whatever promotion/freebie is going on that month. *Make sure you check the box that says you want to use your starter kit as your first essential rewards order. This way, your kit covers the requirements (50 pv/ 100 pv) until the next month. Say yes for both!* You can always get the freebie with your starter kit and then cancel your Essential Rewards right away. You never have to get charged again and leave with a free product. Another no-brainer.
Well, friends. That about sums it up! I really tried to hit all the hot topics and really break them down for you! I know it was a lot of information and I hope it wasn’t too much all at once!
Obviously, I am truly moved by this company and their products. I haven’t tried everything-yet-but have loved everything I have tried so far! I wouldn’t recommend something I didn’t truly believe in and I really do believe in this company and am so thrilled to be a part of it.
If you decide to join, I can’t express how excited I am for you! I’ll be in contact with you either way you choose to go with Young Living.
If you have additional questions on anything I’ve covered (or didn’t cover) please don’t hesitate to contact me or comment on this blog.
I’d be happy to help in any way I can!
