I have been using essential oils for about 3 years now. I love my oils and have been an integral part of my healthy lifestyle. What I set out to do on my blog initially was to share my healthy recipes. Then it turned into sharing recipes and resources, health tips to live a healthy lifestyle. And over the last couple of months I wanted to give you more resources to allow you to live your best life possible. And with those resources one of them is Essential Oils. I will forever use essential oils and I want you to use them, love them and reap the benefits of essential oils just like our family has. I use them for cleaning, for perfume, and for cooking. One thing I didn’t think I would be doing was starting up an Essential Oil business. But I’m so glad I did!
I decided to pursue the business side of essential oils is because I fell in love with using them. I had been signed up as a distributor with Young Living for almost 2 years and getting the 24% off of my oils, but it wasn’t until my friend Kate from Real Food RN approached me about the business side of essential oils. She had started her business about 6 months earlier and was loving it. Not only was she able to make some money, she was loving sharing the knowledge of essential oils. When you find a product you love and want to use over and over again, you don’t have to sell. It’s just sharing knowledge about something that I am already passionate about!
I do not like to call it selling oils or memberships, but rather, introducing people to their amazing benefits and letting the oils sell themselves. This is not a door-to-door, cold-calling, or a flyer-passing business. Not at all. I do most of my work completely online. From home. During nap time (and in other bits of time I have available to me).
First, you need to sign up for a Young Living account. You will need to start a wholesale account and become a Distributor in order to gain commissions on those who sign up under you. You can learn how to do that HERE. Plus, you get the wholesale discount (24%) on your own oils so it’s really a win-win situation!
Next, find your outlet to spread your message. Mine is my blog and the social media sites that I run. But, you do not have to have a blog. All you need to have is passion, knowledge and an desire to get the word out. I have some business builders who engage their local community, do online an in-person classes and do amazing with the business.
If you are not currently a blogger you can do any of the following:
Make Graphics and Memes: Post them on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook. You can follow me on Instagram to see some examples. Take the facts and tips that you know and present them with a nice visual. Include photos and always include your Young Living member number if you are not linking your image directly to a website or Facebook page. You want to get credit for your creation right? My favorite tools for making memes is PicMonkey and Canva. The best camera for taking pictures for Facebook and Instagram? The phone you have!! Whatever is close by and easy. If you’re uploading a photo, always edit the photo. I use Pic, Tap, Go and tend to use Light’s On, Crispity, and Warm it up or cool it down. Everything looks better with a quick edit!
This business is all yours! You can make this business succeed in many ways. Classes, videos, blog or even handing out samples of oils to people in your everyday life. Like I said before, these oils seriously sell themselves. All you need to have is a passion and a way to get the word out. Something to help you out in learning more about oil is the Essential Oils Desk Reference. Mine is out all the time. Nobody is an essential oil expert but this tool will be invaluable in your business and in your personal life!
First educate, then help people to sign up (You will need a sign up page)
1) You can purchase a personal website from Young Living for less that $10/month and direct people to that page. You will find those through the Young Living website. I don’t have a Young Living website because of my blog platform and social media sites associated with this blog. Then you can make business cards through Vista Print and get your website and member number printed on them to handout to people who want to learn more about essential oils. You have an internet presence along with something they can see and have a place to sign up.
2) You can also just use THIS LINK, and swap out my member numbers for your own. This option is completely free, all you need is a member number and you are set. If you’re feeling overwhelmed on where to start, this is your best option.
3) You can start a blog and make a landing page that explains why you love oils and how they can join you in spreading the word. Here is my landing page. You can even start up a FREE WordPress.com site.
Want some help getting this all set up?
1) Sign up with Young Living through the person who introduced you to the oils. Hopefully, that is ME! HERE is where you can do this. It will have to be either through me or someone on my team to get access to our business group. You will need to sign up as a distributor (remember, you get 24% off you oils for life when you do this!), and you will need to purchase your starter kit. In order to have access to our team, we require that you sign up with the Premium Starter Kit. Don’t worry, we are not requiring this because it is the most expensive — it’s the best value and the easiest way to get started with essential oils because it comes with 10 Everyday Essential oils and a free bottle of stress away and a home diffuser. Below is an image that shows what is included in that kit…
Once People Have Signed Up, How Do I Earn Money?
When a person signs up under you, you will earn a commission on the oils that they purchase. There is also a lot more to the program…
Are you ready? The time is now, start today! Young Living is a fast growing business and have experienced the greatest amount of growth over the last couple years. Essential oils are growing in their popularity and becoming more accepted in their use. That makes me excited! Start your essential oil business today!!
