The wholesale member price alone for the diffuser is $75 (retail it's almost $100!). Total no brainer. This is why I recommend the $150 kit. You can’t beat getting 10 oils, 2 samples of the top five oils AND the diffuser for that price. The other two kits they offer are $40 and $75 don't make quite as much sense to me. The $40 kit comes with the samples, but not the diffuser or the set of 9 oils pictured above (not super helpful for starting off using essential oils, right?). The $75 kit comes with the diffuser and samples and stress away, but no kit of 9 oils. My issue with the $75 kit is, so you have the diffuser, but only a 5ml bottle of stress away and some sample packs to diffuse, you will obviously have to be buying more oils to use that diffuser, so why not just get 9 super practical 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 the $150 kit. But! People who ordered the $40 kit usually end up getting the $150 kit that month or the following month. So again, if budget allows, the larger kit is just the best value, hands down.
If you want to get going with Young Living for your essential oils, here's how you do it! First, you are not signing your life away if you become a member. If you would like to purchase Young Living Essential Oils, you can do so by ordering retail from a member (like me!), or you can become a member and get the oils at 24% off. Once you buy your starter kit (I’ll explain those later), you are NEVER required to order a certain amount each month. You are NEVER required to tell others about Young Living. You should NEVER be bothered by people to work it as a business. You simply are now able to purchase at the discounted price. Think of it like a SAMS Club or COSTCO membership. You pay a small fee to become a member to get cheaper prices, the only thing different is SAMS or COSTCO will give you a card, YL gives you a kit of oils and a diffuser.
To be honest, when I heard that Young Living was set up like a Multi Level Marketing company I was less than enthused. I'd had experience with one in the past and it forced me to spend WAY more money every month than I could ever make back by selling and it was so disheartening. I wasn't a fan of the whole MLM thing, but once I realized Young Living doesn't force you to buy hundreds of dollars in product every month just to keep your membership, you don't have to sell anything, and I actually like the product, I was on board. Ugh, so refreshing. All that is required to keep your Wholesale Member status is to spend $50/year on product, which I happily did about a week after my premium kit came because I wanted to try more oils!
Now that you aren't freaked out anymore about becoming a member, this is how you sign up! There is a visual you can follow here and step-by-step directions below.
Step 1: go to https://www.youngliving.com/signup/?site=US&sponsorid=1687100&enrollerid=1627216
Step 2: make sure “Wholesale Member” is marked off instead of “Retail Customer.” Wholesale Member is 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 the blanks (they should be entered in there for you if you entered with that link in step 1) 1627216.
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. I never want to pressure people into the business end…EVER. I want you to use and love your oils 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 “PREMIUM STARTER KIT” (It should be the first option). This is the one with the everyday oils kit and the diffuser. It will be $150. The other kits do not include the oils starter pack.
Step 7: Scroll down through the “Essential Rewards Kits” and click “no thank you, I plan on enrolling in Essential Rewards later” (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 new members to get the kit, try the oils out, and then talk to me before your next purchase. Then we'll see if ER is right for you).
Step 8: Click “I Agree” and “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! I remember how excited I was to receive my starter kit. Much ripping open of boxes occurred. Your membership will stay active as long as you spend at least $50 in a calender year. You do not have to continue to “renew” your membership…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…will never be a problem.
