Before I found Young Living, I’d tried oils before, but they hadn’t worked (more on why that happened HERE). Then a friend gave me a sample of lavender to test out because I suffered from severe seasonal issues. I thanked her, and put it in my cupboard.
In fact, my seasonal discomforts in both fall and spring used to be so bad that I would develop a severe sinus infection every single time something bloomed. I wish I was exaggerating. It was miserable-I had constant headaches, nosebleeds, and I looked like death. Constantly.
During one such struggle, I remembered the sample. In desperation, I texted her to ask how the heck to use this stuff. She told me to apply just a drop of the lavender to the bridge of my nose. I laughed out loud. She had to be nuts.
No chanting, weird rituals…just “swipe it across the nose as needed.”
But I did. I mean, I was seriously miserable, so why not, right?
You know what? It worked. My eyes stopped watering, I stopped sneezing, and I could finally breathe for the first time in months.
I was so excited that when I started to feel gross again, I reapplied.
Then I waited impatiently for my oils to arrive (I seriously stalked the UPS guy for a week straight-poor thing).
And finally, they came. Okay, okay. It took under a week to get to me, even with processing.
I unpacked my box immediately. My brand new diffuser was awesome, and the lavender couldn’t have come fast enough. My sample had lasted because I was rationing it like crazy.
But I had a problem. I had no idea what to do with the rest of the oils, so I put them at the back of a cupboard and forgot about them for a bit.
I think that a lot of us are guilty of that. We get super excited about something, and then once we actually have it in our hands we get a little stuck, and when we can’t figure out what to do, then we give up, put it away, and forget.
For me, I was stuck for about a month. Then I read that diffusing a combination of lemon, lavender, and peppermint essential oils may help support healthy breathing.
So obviously I tried it. I had to know:
What else could these oils do?”
Turns out, they can do a lot. I’ve completely overhauled our go-to remedies, and we use oils all day, every day. Now, these aren’t a magic pill-y’all. Nothing is. But using these oils is a great way to improve our family’s healthy and wellness.
And the supplements! Oh, Mylanta. Y’all. I’m a huge, raving fan of Young Living supplements and have just gotten through my first winter in the history of winters without coming down with a host of sideline inducing yuck.
I finally survived a winter where the weather has been all over the map, and am coming out the other side healthy & strong.
Thanks to oils, I’ve been able to radically boost my immune system function because I’m reducing the amount of toxins in my home. This means that my body can finally heal itself.
I seriously never want to be without oils ever again.
Since switching over to more natural products and high quality supplements, I’ve noticed a dramatic improvement in so many areas: I am sleeping better, seasons changing doesn’t bother me, and I finally have energy again.
Now, I know that I may sound like a crazy fanatic…but I’m not. I believe in a healthy lifestyle.
Change is hard. I get it.
Creating a healthier life isn’t easy-change is difficult and takes time. It takes patience and persistence. That’s why when I took 6 months to try that lavender sample I didn’t beat myself up. I understood that it just wasn’t the right time before.
Oils are part of my family’s healthy balance. We eat well (though sometimes we do order in pizza), go to church, pray, and get regular exercise. In my humble opinion, a whole-life approach to health is one that is far easier to achieve and maintain.
Essential oils are an integral part of that approach for myself and my family. My parents, sister, and brother all use them regularly. We’ve all found oils to be beneficial in so many ways.
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are the natural byproduct of plant metabolism. These tiny molecules are easily absorbed into your skin. The best part is that they know just what to do once they get there. They immediately go to work delivering oxygen and nutrients while removing toxins from your body.
And we don’t just use oils.
Remember the supplements I mentioned? We all take them daily.
One of my all-time favorites is my Ningxia Red, which:
- Balanced ingredients make NingXia Red® a whole-body nutrient infusion for health and wellness support*
- Provides Energy Support*
- Supports normal cellular function*
- Contains powerful ingredients that are involved in many natural antioxidant processes*
- Supports good health and overall wellness*
- Supports whole-body health*
- Supports normal eye health*
- Delivers citrus essential oils containing d-limonene, a powerful component in citrus oils
- Formulated from exotic fruits
- Powerful formula includes wolfberry, which is touted for its health benefits
- Helps prevent against oxidative stress*
Plus, the Ningxia Wolfberry is high in protein (more than whole wheat, which is good news for those of us who avoid gluten!).
And, I discovered my love affair for Ningxia Red because I received a sample of it with my starter kit. I can’t remember the last morning that I didn’t have 2-4 ounces of Ningxia Red to start my day.

Why Should I Become A Wholesale Member?
First and foremost, becoming a wholesale member is the only way to get your oils at 24% off retail price. It’s awesome to get this discount.
Do I Have to “Sell”?
Never. You may find that as you use the oils and you share your testimonials with friends and family, you want to. You always have the option to earn a commission when others join and purchase Young Living oils. There is never any obligation to buy a certain amount or ever share YL with others. Win-win!
I really just want to use oils myself. Do I ever have to sell Young Living products?”
Again, no you don’t. You can use them, love them, and never sell.
There is absolutely no obligation at all to sell oils when you join as a wholesale member.
Now, if you ever change your mind, you can jump in at any time. I personally choose to just share Young Living online or with friends who ask me about it first. It is a no-pressure kind of thing, and I will not lie… the monthly check is pretty awesome.
If someone wants to join Young Living through me, how do we do that?
When you join, you will be assigned your own ‘wholesale member number’ to give to your friends and family who are interested in joining as well. Easy-peasy!
Is there a monthly order minimum?
Nope. You just order what you need when you need it! This is a huge part of the reason that I chose Young Living. I only have to order what I actually need-I don’t have to meet a minimum or order every month (or pay a membership fee).
Are you sure there are no monthly order requirements?
None! There is NO (nada, zip, zilch, zero) REQUIREMENT! Y’all. Young Living is a company that really gets it. There are no hoops.
Now, to retain an active ‘wholesale member’ account, you have to place one 50 PV (approximately $50.00) minimum order per year.
If you miss that deadline, you can reactivate your account by calling Young Living Customer Care with a 100PV (point volume) order.
Sometimes, as a promotion, they even waive this minimum order requirement to reactivate. But again, this is just to keep, what YL calls, “active status.”
Is there a way to save even more money?
Yes! The Essential Rewards program offers reduced shipping, generous credits that I use on a regular for free oils, supplements, and more.
Each month there are seriously awesome promotions for free oils when you place your Essential Rewards order. I did not do this when I started, but now I do because it works for me! Plus, I love free stuff, and I am getting plenty of it.
What is the catch?
There isn’t one. Period. To be clear, I do make a commission from the company when you make your purchase.
That motivates me to share, of course, but the main reason I share Young Living oils is because I love them, they work and they have seriously blessed our family.
Thank you for enrolling as a ‘wholesale member’ through me!
