Okay, so how do we go about this membership thing?
Don’t worry, take a deep breath. [If you had some Peace & Calming, I’d suggest you diffuse it, but you don’t yet, so that’s what we need to change!].
It is NOT a big deal and you’re definitely not signing your life away. :)
If you want oils, you can always purchase from a distributor but you also have the option to become a Wholesale Member. I know, I know…I’ve had experience signing up for other companies and have felt taken advantage of in the end. This is not the same way.
To keep your Wholesale Member status, you are NOT required to make monthly orders or minimums.
You are NEVER required to tell others about Young Living.
You are NEVER bothered by people to work this as a business.
You simply are now able to purchase your oils at a discounted price.
Think of this like a Sam’s or Costco membership. You pay a small fee to become a member and get cheaper prices. BUT… the difference here is that instead of getting a photo ID to prove your membership, instead Young Living send you a kit of oils and a diffuser. WHAT?! Yep. :)
Sometimes you may hear the “Wholesale Membership” referred to as a “Distributor,” and it’s because they mean the same thing.
However, that NEVER means that you HAVE to build a business. Never, ever. You can sign up as a “Distributor” and not distribute one thing for the rest of your life. No one is going to haul you off to the slammer. ;)
Of course, if you want to, you can. In fact, to distribute Young Living:
-you don’t have to buy some fancy additional kit
-you don’t have to purchase $1000 of product
…and we will NEVER suggest you carry a stockpile of oils to sell to friends.
All you really do is share how they’ve helped you and your family, and changed your lives. That’s it.
Distributors get the same starter kits regular Wholesale Members do, they’ve just made some profit by telling friends/family about the oils. It’s really very simple. :)
Alright, back to the kit!
The kit I recommend EVERYONE get is the Premium Starter Kit for $150.
It is truly the best kit they offer.
There are two other options, but I PROMISE this $150 kit is THE MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK. And I’m about to tell ya why!
First off…it comes with the Everyday Oils Kit: 10 5mL bottles of the oils you see below. They are so incredibly versatile you will use them everyday. It’s inevitable.
Retail Price? $163.
Oh wait, it also comes with Stress Away!
A bonus oil, if you will. And don’t even get me started on that oil. It is HEAVENLY. It is by far one of my favorites to wear as a scent, but diffusing it is just wonderful. And it goes in all of my creams! It’s one of those ones I just want to include in everything.
Then, in addition to that…
you also get two sample packs of the top 5 oils (lemon, peppermint, lavender, peace & calming, and thieves). I love handing these out to people when I see a need. Lavender for deep sleeping, Thieves if someone is in anyway sick, Peppermint for nausea or energy, Lemon for sore throats or detoxing, Peace & Calming for restless children or teeth grinding…and the possibilities are endless! This is what a sample looks like..it contains about 5-10 drops of oil.
Which I happen to be using right this very second.
[…I’m diffusing Thieves and Frankincense if you were wondering].
I use it at least twice, if not three times a day. This is by far, in my opinion, the biggest perk to the kit.
It retails for $98. NINETY-EIGHT dollars!!! And it’s coming in the kit!
Please excuse me while I say:
“….What A STEAL!”
You cannot beat getting 11 oils, 10 sample packets, AND the diffuser for $150!
The Everyday oils kit retails at $163. The diffuser retails at $98. And then there’s the Stress Away. And then there are the samples.
And all in all…its a $280 value. That they sell for $150.
The other two kits they offer at $40 and $75 don’t make very much sense to me at all.
The $40 kit comes with the samples and Stress Away, but NO diffuser and NO kit of 10 oils. […trust me, you will want to diffuse. You will].
The $75 kit comes with the diffuser and samples and Stress-Away, but NO kit of 10 oils. My issue with the $75 kit is that you have a diffuser, but practically nothing to diffuse and you’ll have to buy more oils right away just to get started… so why not get the 10 oils for $75 more?
The only time I recommend the $40 kit is if someone is anxious to get started and budget just doesn’t allow for the $150 kit. I will tell you, EVERY SINGLE person who has ordered the $40 kit under me ends up getting the $150 kit that month or the following, without fail. So again, if budget allows, the larger kit is THE best value.
So…the question is: Are you ready to join the rest of us?! :)
Step 2: make sure “Wholesale Member” is marked off instead of “Retail Customer.” This signs you as a “member” to Young Living and it’s the only way to get access to the kit and the 24% discount you get afterwards. It’s really important!
Step 3: make sure my member numbers are in both the sponsor & enroller blanks – 1528476 (they should be entered here for you if you used the link in step 1).
Step 4: Fill out all the information. It will ask you for your ss# but this is only for legal purposes so that you have the ability to bring in a paycheck (YL is a referral based business). If you never sign anyone up, your ss # will never be used. Lemon Droppers do not pressure people into the business end…EVER. We want you to use and love your oils and we love you as a member whether you work the business end or not.
Step 5: Make sure you write down your pin, user name and password when you choose it because you’ll need that in the future to log into your account.
Step 6: Select the first “PREMIUM STARER KIT” This is the one with the everyday oils kit and the diffuser and the start living kit. It will be $150. (There is also now a $160 option with a sleeker diffuser. They’re otherwise the SAME kit.) The cheaper kits do not include oils AND a diffuser, and trust me…that would be very disappointing!
Step 7: Scroll down through the “Essential Rewards Kits” and click “no thank you” (you are not obligated to sign up for Essential Rewards at this time, but it does have some great benefits, but to be honest, I always tell my new members to get the kit, try the oils out, and then talk to me before your NEXT purchase. We then we will see if ER is right for you and your family).
Step 8: At the bottom of the screen hit Next.
Step 9: Confirm your enrollment information (you should see my name as your enroller and sponsor, or the person who referred you).
Step 10: Add any oils, capsules, or products that you would like in addition to your kit if there are any that you would like.
Step 11: Check out and you are DONE! WOOHOO!
YAY!! You are a member!! Wooooohoooo!!! I remember how excited I was to receive my starter kit. Your membership will stay active as long as you spend at least $50 in a calendar year. You do not have to continue to renew your membership each year… that kit was a one-time thing and you will remain a member as long as you spend that $50 a year. Which, trust me… that won’t be a problem.
