How to Make Money and stay Healthy with Young Living Essential Oils
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?
We know exactly what that’s like. We were in your shoes. My husband and I work full-time jobs and busy lifestyles. We were getting by, but it wasn’t the life we wanted for us.
What if we 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 we told you there was a way to make a great income and work on YOUR schedule?
That’s Exactly What Essential Oils Can Do!
We were introduced to essential oils through a friend, and we absolutely fell in love with them. We used them to make our own household cleaners, DIY beauty products, and so much more. We found that we saved so much money by making our own products AND cut out toxic chemicals lurking in our home. Win-win! And since we loved them so much, we started sharing them with our friends and family.
Then it happened. we got my first thank you check from Young Living. It felt so natural to share our love for essential oils with others, and we were getting paid to do it. That’s when we started looking into the business opportunity with Young Living.
Ready to learn how you can do this too and what it takes to get started? Keep on reading…

How to Start a Young Living Business
1. Become a Member
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 £139.80 for a starter kit, which includes 11 oils, a diffuser, and other goodies. This kit is worth about £250 – 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.
Sign up with us, and we’ll provide you with all the support, training, and education you need to start your own Young Living essential oils business. In fact, you can subscribe to our free 15-day email course to learn all about the oils in the Premium Starter Kit right now.
2. Use Your Oils
Once 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 us, we will gift you reference materials to get you started so you can build up a knowledge-base. We're 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 we are still learning, and we’ve been using the oils for over two years. But you do want to take every chance to use the oils so you can talk about them with others.
And we 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.
We make it a point to use our essential oils in public. We’ll apply our Stress-Away roll-on while waiting in line at the grocery store. We use Thieves hand spray to clean our hands and trolleys. We diffuse oils when we have guests over at our house. And we even post pictures of us using essential oils on Facebook. This is not selling. This is just us using our oils.
And believe us, 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, we also have a script you can follow) 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. We personally love just sitting around in our sitting room 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.
Nervous about teaching classes? Don’t worry! When you join with our team, we’ll show you EVERYTHING you need to start your business and teach others. I provide you with education, training, support and community with other members and leaders to help you every step of the way.
And best of all? This training and resources are available to friends and family you sign up too (if you’re a member of our team). Young Living does have some great business building materials in the Virtual Office too.
Plus, teaching classes and sharing the oils is all about education. There’s NO SELLING at all. 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, then use your sign-up link (we’ll show you how to get yours once you sign up with us) to get others to sign up. Easy right?
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 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.
4. 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?
Here it is in a nutshell: When you sign up a new wholesale member who also gets a Premium Starter Kit, you earn $50 (equivalent in GBP).
$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 £139.80, 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.
We 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 higher in PV value but there are some exceptions with tools and diffuser) 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:
Is That All? No Way!
There’s so much more, but we are keeping this simple for you. Bu
