Why I Am No Longer A Young Living Customer….

Wait – what? You may be thinking – “Isn’t this the oil crazed lady who is always talking about applying oils to her feet, spine and everywhere else? Sniffing and snorting and diffusing them? Cleaning with them? Even (GASP!) drinking them in her water, cooking with them and taking them by capsule?” Yes, yes – no worries! I am still the oil crazed lady who loves all of that! Okay, I may have been exaggerating a tiny bit about snorting them – please don’t snort them…  But, I do LOVE Young Living and they have completely transformed the way I do everything now! From the toxic candles I no longer burn, to the way I clean my house, what I put on my skin, what deodorant I use, and much, much more!

So, let’s back up… If you’ve followed my story, you may recall that back in 2009, I initially signed up as a retail customer with Young Living. I bought a bottle of lavender and peppermint essential oil – at FULL RETAIL PRICE – and they sat on my dresser. For 3 1/2 years! YIKES! Fast forward to spring of 2013, I was reintroduced to Young Living by a nice stranger on Facebook, and I enrolled with her as a wholesale member with a Premium Starter Kit.  Fortunately, the oils keep when stored properly, so when my wonderful sponsor helped me learn how to use my oils, I was able to use (and fully appreciate) the lavender and peppermint!

In Young Living you can create a retail customer account where all of Young Living’s products are available to purchase at full retail price. OR, you can create a wholesale account that offers many more benefits! There really isn’t much more to add about a retail account, so let’s jump into the benefits of a wholesale account. With a wholesale account, anything you purchase will be at the wholesale price, which is 24% off of retail!  To get started, you will need to purchase a starter kit, which can be as low as $45. However, most people begin with a Premium Starter Kit, starting at $160 (depending on the kit you choose). I recommend starting with the Premium Starter Kit. It is a great beginner kit that sets you up with 11 oils, a diffuser, NingXia Red samples, and much more! It’s a great value, and really gives you the tools to learn how to use the oils and really experience them. So what’s the catch you may wonder? There isn’t one! Nope! No monthly purchase required, no selling required, just one purchase per year (of about $50) to keep your account active! Think of it like a Costco membership… However, with Young Living, you have the option to earn income (which is why they are required to collect a tax ID or your social security number), and you have the option to participate in Essential Rewards, which is Young Living’s monthly customer rewards program, but you are not required to do either of those. That’s it! Easy peasy!

So, in short – I am no longer a retail customer because I didn’t see any benefit to it! And trust me, when I did finally join as a wholesale member, building a business was the FURTHEST thing from my mind! I wasn’t going to participate in Essential Rewards either! However, in time, because I was taught and not pressured – I saw the benefits of both of those things for myself and both have been a huge blessing!  More about that later…

When you enroll with me with a Premium Starter Kit, I will send you a thank you gift that includes resource materials to help you get started on your chemical free, oily journey! You will also have access to our private Drop Dynasty Team Facebook group and our team and I will help you learn how to integrate them into your daily life, and keep you posted about upcoming classes where you can learn more!  I don’t want to see oils sitting on your dresser for 3 1/2 years – I want you to feel comfortable USING them! I encourage you to take the plunge as I did, and get started with a Premium Starter Kit TODAY!  Contact me with any questions!


If you aren’t quite ready to take the plunge, but would like to know more, contact me and I will add you to my oily newsletter list! No pressure! Check out my video below for a sneak peek and brief description of everything in the kit!
