Do you feel like you’re working so hard at living, but don’t really have a life?

Do you want to find a way to make an income without sacrificing family time?

Could use use an extra $300-500+ a month or more?

What if I told you there was a way you could start a home-based business with your family without a huge investment and crazy hours?

What if I told you there was a way to make a great income and work on YOUR schedule?

That’s Exactly What an Essential Oil Business Can Do!


I was introduced to essential oils at a young age, and I absolutely fell in love with them. I used them to make my own household cleaners, DIY beauty products, and so much more (check out my tutorials and recipes on how to use essential oils here). I found that I saved so much money by making my own products AND cut out toxic chemicals lurking in my home. Win-win! Most of all, I was able to get rid of lots of toxic chemicals that I was having allergic reactions to.  And since I loved the oils so much, I started sharing them with my friends and family. People would ask me about my recipes and DIYs and then it dawned on me – I should start an essential oil business.

Let’s backtrack just a little bit though.  A few years ago just weeks after graduating with my master’s degree I got sick. I mean REALLY sick.  104 degree fever, dangerously low blood pressure, rapid heart rate…  I went to the doctor and almost overnight had developed pneumonia.  Not only that, the antibiotics they were treating me with I wasn’t responding to.  I dropped a significant amount of weight, could barely keep my eyes open and was in bad shape.  Once I finally recovered (talking months here) I did some serious reflecting on my life and current situation.  I quit my corporate job when my son was born for a number of reasons but primarily so I could be more involved with he and my daughter.  I wanted to work, but still be a stay at home mom.  I had worked on the side as a photographer so I decided to take that full time.  It was great!  I was able to do something I loved, made my own hours and was my own boss.  The problem?  I only got paid when I was PHYSICALLY working and it was a seasonal career.  So when I had pneumonia it basically wiped out my income for the year because it was during my busy time.  I couldn’t bare the thought of my kids and I struggling because I couldn’t pay our bills.
I decided I need to find a business I believed in that had residual income so that I could still be my own boss, make my own hours, spend time with my kids and not have to worry that if I couldn’t work for some reason we wouldn’t have food on the table.

I know so many people who have had their lives completely changed with Young Living’s amazing products and the ability to help others just by sharing what you already use and love.

How does that sound? Amazing, right? Who wouldn’t want to do all of that?


How to Start a Young Living Business

1. Become an Independent Distributor

Sign up with a wholesale membership to become an independent distributor. The great thing about becoming an independent distributor is that it’s a low investment to start up. It’s just $160 for a starter kit, which includes 11 oils, a diffuser, and other goodies. This kit is worth about $300 – so it’s nearly half off. There’s no additional start-up fees. Plus, you’ll need that kit to share the oils with others.  It comes with the most popular oils that can be used for countless things.  Each of the oils are amazing.


Sign up with me, and I’ll provide you with all the support, training, and education you need to start your own Young Living essential oils business.  Our team has created a community of like-minded entrepreneurs to help one another grow.  I provide class scripts, graphics, newsletters and 1×1 coaching to each of my business builders.  We also have a private Facebook group, video conferences and TONS of support to all our members near and far.  Our team is rapidly growing and not a day goes by that I don’t work on new ways to support and help everyone.  Let’s get you started on the path to success.  As soon as you sign up, you’ll start to hear from me!

2. Use Your Oils

One you get your starter kit, start using the oils. Learn more about each one and take the time to build your own testimonial for each oil in the kit.

When you sign up with me, I will gift you reference materials to get you started so you can build up a knowledge-base. I’m here to help and support you too. But do you need to know everything? Absolutely not! No one expects you to be an expert. Even I’m still learning, and I’ve been using the oils for nearly two years. But you do want to take every chance to use the oils so you can talk about them with others.

And I recommend you take every opportunity to share your testimonials. Be sure to keep it above the wellness line. We don’t need to focus on sickness or disease. We have so much to talk about with wellness, cleaning, beauty, cooking and so much more.

I make it a point to use my essential oils in public. I’ll apply my Stress-Away roll-on while waiting in line at the grocery store. I use Thieves hand spray to clean my kids’ hands at birthday parties. I diffuse oils when I have guests over at my house. And I even post pictures of myself using essential oils on Facebook. This is not selling. This is just me using my oils.

And believe me, people will start asking about them. So what do you do then?

3. Teach Classes or Have 1:1 Meetings

Look for opportunities to share the oils with others. Teach classes in your home (just use your starter kit and talk about how you use the oils) to family and friends. This could be as simple as three friends around a kitchen table, or a packed room of 20 or more. Do what feels natural for you. I personally love just sitting around my kitchen table and passing the oils around for people to try out. You can even just schedule a 1:1 with a friend who can’t make it to a class. Make it fun. Meet at a coffee shop and bring your starter kit.You can also do classes in more public places like your local library, ask friends and family to host classes for you.  The options are endless here.


Nervous about teaching classes? Don’t worry! When you join with my team, I’ll show you EVERYTHING you need to start your business and teach others. I provide you with education, training, support and an amazing community with other members and leaders to help you every step of the way. We will help you with lots of resources for your classes and even provide different ways to teach classes including pre-recorded classes you can just pop in DVD player for everyone to watch.  It doesn’t get much easier than that my friends.

And best of all? This training and resources are available to friends and family you sign up too (if you’re a member of my team). This is all in addition to what materials Young Living has provided for business building in the Virtual Office too.

Plus, teaching classes and sharing the oils is all about education. I don’t think of it as selling.  You aren’t pushing anyone to do something they don’t want to. Just teach classes and then help people sign up with their own account through you. That’s how you earn bonuses and commissions from Young Living. You don’t have to actually stock the oils yourself, or set up a payment system to take orders. Just teach and share!  It’s easy to sign people up and before you know it, you’ll have a team of your own.

You can also get creative in how you share the oils with others. Teach community classes at the local library or recreation center. Host a vendor booth at a school bazaar or local craft fair. Offer educational seminars at church. Make DIY gifts for teachers and friends for the holidays. There are so many options available – it’s totally up to you.  We send out weekly e-mails to our team that provide recipes, DIYs, business tips, the monthly specials and so much more.

4. Now it’s time to Earn Money

You’ve got classes or 1:1 meetings scheduled. You have people signing up. So what’s next? You earn money!

Young Living’s compensation plan is very generous, and the best part about it is that you have the ability to earn residual income. So how does that work? Let’s go over the basics. After joining our team, I will explain it in more detail.

Here it is in a nutshell: When you sign up a new wholesale member who also gets a Premium Starter Kit, you earn $50.

  • $25 for the Starter Kit Bonus
  • 25% commissions for the first 3 months for the Fast Start Bonus – that 25% commission is based on 100 PV (personal volume), which is $25 (the Premium Starter Kit is 100 PV even though the actual cost is $160, that’s the PV value)

So sign up a friend with a Premium Starter Kit and earn $50. If that friend orders again in month 2 or 3, then you earn 25% commissions on that order. Plus, you earn 10% commissions on anyone your new person signs up too.

I mentioned earlier there’s no monthly minimum. That’s true. However, you’ll be leaving money on the table if you don’t spend 50 PV (every product is assigned PV value – consumables are usually 1:1 so if an oil costs $25, then it will have 25 PV but there are some exceptions with tools and diffusers) to earn the Starter Kit and Fast Start Bonuses. So technically you don’t have to spend that 50 PV, but you’d be missing out on free oils with that order. Just one sign-up will pay for those oils (i.e. you spend 50 PV in products and earn $50 in a thank you check from Young Living).

But imagine when you get 3 sign-ups? You’ll earn almost enough to cover your Premium Starter Kit. Enroll more people in a month, and you’re making even more money.


After a member is with you for 3 months, you can qualify for unilevel commissions (8% of their total PV for the month) when you spend 100 PV. At this point, you’ll see that those you’ve signed up will start sharing too. And with unilevel commissions, you earn on members on your level 2, 3, and so on.

You also earn 24% commissions when you sign up retail members, but you don’t earn residual income. For that reason, I always recommend wholesale membership – which is just an awesome deal any way you look at it and builds you up for financial freedom.

Here’s a super simple explantation of the compensation plan:

But that’s not all!

There’s so much more, but I’m keeping this simple for you. But do know that you can also advance in rank with the company and qualify for profit sharing, all-expense paid company retreats, generational commissions and so much more!

One of my favorite things to show people who are interested in starting a Young Living business is the average monthly income by rank (based on Young Living members in 2013 who ranked at Star or above):

Rank Average Monthly Income Average Annual Income
Star $73 $876
Senior Star $261 $3,132
Executive $617 $7,404
Silver $2,335 $28,020
Gold $6,527 $78,324
Platinum $15,721 $188,652
Diamond $32,003 $384,036
Crown Diamond $57,300 $687,600
Royal Crown Diamond $106,432 $1,277,184

Isn’t it amazing to see what’s possible? What could you do with an extra $261 a month? Or how about an extra $2,335 a month? It can be done.  Click here to see the full income disclosure.
