After learning about Young Living Essential Oils, you may still have some questions. Please read these frequently asked questions and answers to see if they can help you better understand the products and program.
Does signing up make me a “distributor”?
No, not at all! You are never required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you’ll receive 24% off all of your purchases. You will get a special member number that you can share with friends to earn credit from their purchases if choose, but there are no expectations for selling a thing. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t pursue the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
No. There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, there is no penalty. You can restart your wholesale membership discount if it has lapsed by just placing a $50 order.
How can I save money on essential oils?
If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month and would like to earn credit to spend on free products, Young Living has a rewards program called Essential Rewards. You’ll earn a percentage back (it increases from 10-15-20% during your first year and then remains at 20%). On a $50 order, you’ll earn $5-10 back in credit! It’s a great program to join if you find that you want to purchase regularly (and I use it myself to stretch my essential oils budget further), but it is optional.
Young Living also offers sale items and promotions each month, such as free products when you spend a certain amount. Every little bit helps to get the oils you need on a budget!
Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?
It does seem like a new essential oil company pops up every day, doesn’t it? I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.
Young Living was the only company that:
- owns farms across the world (in the regions where the plants should be grown)
- could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and pull all weeds by hand, which exceeds USDA organic standards)
- tests each batch of oils using both in-house and third party testing using many different testing methods (not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not)
- only uses the first distillation of oils without adding chemicals to get more out of the plant
Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.

How will I know which essential oils to use?
One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through my promotion is that you will also be invited to join a private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils! I learn more there every day, just from reading what has worked for others.
The quick reference guide for essential oils (an additional bonus with this promotion) is also an incredible resource. You can look up almost any issue in the book and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.
Does Young Living only sell essential oils?
Along with essential oils, Young Living actually offers an entire line of personal care products and supplements along with household cleaner and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but you’ll find a wide variety of products available.
