My family, friends, and readers will tell you that I am already busy enough with my blog, Etsy shop, eBay store, homeschooling, auction resale, raising 8 kids (well, 3 are adults) and being a homemaker. Do I really have time for ONE MORE BUSINESS? This article will explain why I decided to become an essential oils seller.
Note: Some links in this post are affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you make a purchase. Affiliate relationships include, but are not limited to, Amazon Associates, Walmart.com, and Etsy.
Multiple Income Streams Are The Key To Making Money
I love to read motivational business related books to keep me pumped up so I can do my part to provide for our large family's needs. Within the month before I signed up to sell essential oils, we needed more money to buy a second vehicle as we did not all fit in ours. We were determined to pay cash for our next vehicle, I had been reading the following books…
Work From Home by Caroline Vencil
Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine
In reading them, they both mentioned how important it is to have more than one income stream. Many, if possible! I agree. Any one stream of money may not do well in certain seasons. Blogging slows down in the summer, for example, as people are busy on vacation, etc. and not online.
I like to keep my multiple income streams related as well. For example, my blogs are both related to home, homemade, etc. My eBay store and Etsy shops sell home items, some homemade. Auction resale is a business our family does together at home and we resell many home items. These businesses are all related to home.
Timing Is Everything When Selling Essential Oils
So, when my 60th (maybe not 60 exactly, but around there) friend called to ask me about being an essential oils seller, my ears perked up THIS TIME. It could be another income stream. And, I already make and sell reusable cotton rounds and tell people how to make them. I myself use a homemade recipe with essential oils as facial cleanser. Essential oils are definitely needed in the home! My business name that covers all of my businesses is NeededInTheHome. It is really a perfect fit!
My friends have been asking me about selling essential oils for four years! Most of them know I use oils and have a college degree in Marketing. They knew I would be successful before I did. It took me longer to realize it! If you are talking to someone about becoming an essential oils representative because you just know it would be a good fit for them – KEEP AT IT! Don't give up or be discouraged. Invite them again a few months down the road. Something may have changed in their life where they are now ready to listen.
Already Using Essential Oils In The Home
I use essential oils because I am all about saving money and staying out of the hospital! I like to use essential oils to make my own whenever possible.
Just a few ways we save money with essential oils:
- on dryer balls instead of fabric softener or dryer sheets
- in sprayer bottles as room air fresheners, bug sprays, breath sprays, household cleaners, baby wash along with reusable cloth wipes
- in cleaning, toner and moisturizing recipes for facial cleaning with reusable cotton rounds
- many more!
So basically, I won't be doing anything new under the sun! I can buy the product at a discount now AND continue to talk to my friends and readers about how I use them. I am now meeting NEW essential oils friends and assisting them when I can through email. I can still do this business from my home with my blog. I could even create products using essential oils, such as bars of handmade soap and sell them on Etsy. If you already use essential oils, you can sign up as a seller right away because you have something to talk about. Plus you can get a 24% discount on product purchases as a Brand Partner.
Brand Partners don't HAVE TO sell
You can be a Brand Partner, get the discount and never sell a thing! You will probably accidentally sell it if you love it and tell someone how it has helped you though! It's also okay if you don't want to make a purchase every month. If you have a smaller family than my family of ten, you may only need to order every other month. You do need to make a purchase in a month you would like to be paid commissions for so watch for that.

How to become a Brand Partner & order your YL Oils
- Click HERE to get to the YL site and scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on the words that say ”Become a Brand Partner” then make sure the number 19539051 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields so they know you were referred by me and I can send you essential oils recipes once a week to the email address you use.
- Scroll down to the “Add to Cart and get started” button and click it. Remember, you do not HAVE TO sell it.
- Click the “Add to Cart” button on that page.
- Click the “SHOP” in the upper left corner if you would like to order any oils to come with your booklet. I personally always order Thieves to use in my Foaming Hand Soap recipe and Lemon to add a drop to my 32 oz stainless steel container of water as I have had kidney stones in the past and I personally feel this has kept them away.
If desired, you can set up your Essential Rewards monthly auto-ship program, we highly recommend this as a way to order those things you want to have in addition to the kit. Essential Rewards orders qualify for discounted shipping rates. Reduced shipping options start at $5.99 and vary in price based on weight and shipping method. You can earn gifts available only to members the Essential Rewards program when you place consecutive Essential Rewards orders. You’ll get an exclusive blend after your 12th consecutive month!
When you sign up as a member, you have the option of joining our private group(s) on Facebook. In one group you learn how to use oils. In the other group, you learn about selling oils. Each group is very educational and inspiring. You do not HAVE TO sell in person or to anyone you know. Many sellers, like me, do everything from their home – through blogs, social media or email. When you sign up with my code, just email me at email@example.com (with NEW YL ORDER in the subject line). In your note to me, tell me your order number (which you will find in your email receipt after purchase) and let me know if you want to be in the Informational or Business Facebook group or BOTH.
No pressure here! No matter what, I want to offer you the chance to receive emailed recipes once a week from me. If you are interested, just fill out the email address form below.
What if I just want an oil or two and not the entire kit?
That is not a problem! You can look at the website, add whatever you want to your cart and just check out as retail. When you add an item to your cart and go to checkout, you will be brought to the screen asking you if you would like to start as a Wholesale Member or as Retail. Below that will be a place to enter a sponsor and en-roller ID. I would love to be your sponsor. My member ID is 19539051. You simply enter that in both boxes. For even more details, read my article…
How do I find my seller ID number?
It will be on your emailed receipt next to the words “Member Number”. Also, when you go to the YL website, it will be under My Organization. This is the number you will share with others when they want to sign up to get the discounts or become a seller.
Why Young Living?
It is true that when I signed up, I had more friends selling a competitor brand than Young Living. So if I was “going with the crowd” or “trying to keep more friends” I probably should have signed up with that one right? Well, because of my past trouble with kidney stones, I wanted an option that I know I can safely ingest. You may want to talk to your doctor before trying anything. YL has an unmatched Seed to Seal process that guarantees the purity & potency of every oil. Each batch of oils is rigorously tested in house for therapeutic viability & they are so confident in their products that you can actually visit the farms & participate in the harvest/distillation process. They have nothing to hide! And I have nothing to worry about!
How do I learn how to use my kit?
Your kit will come with lots of reading material! But, as mentioned above, you’ll get access to our exclusive facebook community full of amazing resources and if you don't see your question listed there, you can ask it!
ORDER HERE and select the button that says ”I was referred by a member…” then make sure the number 19539051 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields.
