I created this space as a place for me to share these loves and passions of mine; what makes my heart beat and colors my days alive. My hope is that this blog is filled with the realness, the rawness, the beautiful, the heart stirring, gut aching, shakey nervousness, slow and pensive, wild and thriving thoughts and moments of LIFE.
The most common thing I hear from friends who really want to buy the Premium Starter Kit and get started with oils is “it’s just too expensive”.
I get it friend. I was there 4.5 years ago. We didn’t have a lot of money laying around, but after I learned about how amazing oils were, I decided I couldn’t afford NOT to buy them.
After using our oils & getting acquainted with other Young Living products, I found that I actually wasn’t spending as much as I thought I would be. There were many items from YL that had replaced conventional products and saved us money. Plus on top of saving money, we were saving our bodies too! Win win, right!?
Here are 5 ways to save money with Young Living:
1. Get a Wholesale Membership!
This is the route that 99% of people go when they want to start using Young Living products. With this route, you get wholesale pricing on everything they have instead of retail pricing, which saves you 24% on every single item they’ve got! All you need to do is order a starter kit of your choice, or customize your own starter kit, and you’ll automatically get access to wholesale pricing on anything you want to try!
2. Get on Essential Rewards!
Another cool thing about Young Living, is they give cash back to frequent buyers. There is a super cool (and totally optional) program called Essential Rewards, which acts as a “monthly box” that you can customize and get shipped to you every month, filled with products you are needing for your family or in your home. Over time, you can earn up to 25% back in points for your orders, and those points you can use towards getting products for FREE. With Essential Rewards, you can also take advantage of the FREE monthly promotions that Young Living has, cheaper shipping options, and the option to cancel at any time. So, basically, Young Living pays you to order their products through this program. I’ve literally saved thousands and thousands of dollars because of this program. It’s the freaking best!
3. Get FREE products with Young Living’s monthly promotions!
I briefly mentioned this above when talking about Essential Rewards, but let’s go into it in a little more depth. Young Living has this cool tradition, where they give away an assortment of products to members every month for FREE. For anyone who orders over a certain amount in a single order, Young Living will include some free products in the box for you. Normally, there are 4 different ordering tiers – 100, 190, 250, or 300. If you order over any of those amounts in one single order, they will automatically include the FREE monthly products, which could add up to hundreds of dollars in stuff you didn’t have to pay for on top of the points you get back!
4. Create DIY products yourself!
Some people find even more ways to pinch pennies and replace store bought items in their home by creating DIY products with Young Living’s essential oils and products. I wrote a blog post a couple years ago that highlights 4 EASY recipes you can use with your YL oils. There are literally thousands upon thousands of recipes out there to create toxin-free options for yourself and your family. When you add Young Living’s essential oils to your DIY products, the powerful plant properties will add natural fragrance, be soothing to the skin, act as a natural purifying agent, and will support your overall health at the same time, all depending on what you’re making. Basically, adding oils to your DIY recipes will make them even better for you than if you didn’t add them at all!
5. Share Young Living with friends, get paid for their referral!
When I say Young Living literally pays you back, they not only do that when you order, they also do that whenever you refer friends. For every friend you refer, if that friend creates a wholesale account and orders a Premium Starter Kit like you did, you can make $50. So, if you refer 3 friends to Young Living, it could basically pay you back for the Premium Starter Kit you initially purchased for yourself! Also, if you keep referring friends, it could get your monthly Essential Rewards orders paid for, too, that way you will NEVER pay for your products! Talk about a money saver! What other big box companies deposit cash in your bank account for referring friends?!
I’m so glad I said yes to Young Living 4.5 years ago even though I wasn’t sure how to make it work financially. I hope these tips help you make the decision to join me on this journey. It will be one of the best decisions you make, promise.
