I’m so excited to share with you this week! I get tons and tons of questions about getting started with essential oils and what to do after you’ve gotten your kit. So I decided to cover a few basics this week but never fear…..I will be sure you have fun while you’re here! After all, Joy is a fruit of the Spirit AND one of the best oils! 😉
So, I’ll bet if you don’t already have some essential oils you have heard a lot about them. They are getting so popular that they’re popping up everywhere…in the grocery store, in your sidebar ads, it’s getting to where you can’t throw a rock without hitting someone starting to sell oils.
But it’s not a trend to me, it’s a lifestyle. Our family has been using high quality essential oils for over 10 years and we will still be using them when these other companies have long since moved on to the next big thing.
I URGE you NOT to use those brands you can buy at the store! They are not the quality that you should be using for your health. If you get some of those you’ll be all like, “These don’t do anything and I can’t see what Lisa sees in these oils!” You will be disappointed by using the cheap, or just-getting-started brands.
So, HOW do you get Young Living oils then, if you can’t buy them in a store? Well you have to become a member and order for yourself. It’s easy really….just go to their website, click “become a member” at the top and fill in the form (be sure to use the member number of the person you want to work with as your sponsor, for example mine is #1386112) and then get yourself the Premium Starter Kit.
I remember when I got my first kit. I was worried about how much it cost (it’s $160 for 11 oils and a great diffuser) and if it would become another one of those things my husband could point to when I mention wanting to do something and say, “Uh, is this going to be another one of your crazy ideas like when you spent all that money on those OILS that we never used?!” But I actually found that they easily adapted into our home and, while at first I only used a few of the oils in the kit, I slowly started using the rest of them too and within a few months I was completely hooked! Now he’s almost as crazy about the oils as I am!
Getting started can feel overwhelming, so take it one bottle at a time. This week I am going to share with you the How, What, When, Where and Why of getting started. Hang with me and by Friday you will be better informed and ready to go!
Today’s topic is How:
- How do I join?
Oops! I already answered that above. Just go HERE and sign up and order your Premium Starter Kit.
- How do I know who to join through?
You may have other friends doing Young Living too and aren’t sure who to join with. I always tell people to be sure they sign up through someone who will offer them support and will keep them updated about product changes and monthly sales and someone who is ready to help. If your friend who does YL is really keeping up with new products and educating herself then you should consider signing through her. But if she doesn’t seem to know anything about the company or how the business end works (or she doesn’t have a great support system in place) then you should consider joining with someone who can give you the support you need. Of course I would LOVE to have you join through me and add you to my team. I send out books and other gifts to my new members that get the Premium Starter Kit and we have a great Facebook group where you can ask questions, but I want you to know that who you sign with is an important part of getting a great start with essential oils.
- How do I make sure I am ready for my kit to arrive?!
If you just ordered your kit and you’re waiting for it to arrive, I’d suggest jumping on Google and reading about how to use those oils. There are lots of great oily blogs and Young Living has wonderful info on their site to help you get started. Then be sure to come back and read through this series and I’ll give you some tips. I was so excited for my first kit to arrive I practically tackled the mailman when he walked up to the house with a big package that said “Young Living” on the side.
You have got this! Getting started with oils is not hard, in fact it’s fun!
Essential oil fun fact: Did you know that it takes massive amounts of plant matter to produce a small amount of essential oil?
In fact, depending on which plant is processed will depend on how much essential oil it makes. For example, 100 pounds of Lavender produces 1 pound of essential oil, while it takes over 4000 pounds of Rose petals to produce the same amount of essential oil. Because of this, essential oils come in different prices.
