Essential Rewards

Essential Rewards

Young Living’s Essential Rewards Program.
It’s not mandatory.
But it’s fun.
Here are the basics of the ER program:
Available to wholesale members (a Premium Starter Kit qualifies you)
You place a monthly minimum PV order (50pv or 100pv)
Every month that you place an order, you earn a percentage back in points:
Months 1-6: 10%
Months 7-12: 15%
Months 13+: 20%
Ex.) if you place a 100pv order in your first month on ER, you will earn 10 points.
These points can then be redeemed for more oils!
So, let’s say in your very first month on ER, you place a 120pv order. You will receive 12 points. You can then redeem those points for an oil (such as lemon oil which is $11.25 or 11.25pv wholesale), or you can use the points towards an oil (for example, peppermint oil is $21.50 or 21.50pv wholesale. You can use the 12 points, and then pay the difference of $9.50).
You can also let your points accrue (points are good for one year on a rolling basis).
And remember, as a wholesale member, you are always getting the 24% product discount.

Plus you will get reduced shipping charges on your monthly order.
Then, whenever a friend (or stranger!) buys Young Living oils using your enroller ID, you get the bonus/commissions on that order.
Now, the commission structure is fairly simple, but it’s lengthy to explain in a blog post.
Young Living does have documents about this available in the virtual office (you have access once you register/place an order).
And you can always contact me  to further explain it.

Other than maintaining the monthly pv requirement, there are no “selling” requirements at all. That is up to you.

So, basically, you can have your own business, and work as little or as much as you want. You can make a little extra money every month, or you can build a generous income to live on every month.
And you’re earning points towards free oils in the process.

Interested? Contact me  and I’ll help you get started!

Smells Like Fall!

autumn

Fall is here. Even for those of us in Florida.
It’s true. It has dipped into the 60’s the past couple of mornings.
Don’t hate.
In any case, even if the weather doesn’t make you feel like the seasons have changed and the holidays are coming, the retail stores sure will.
I think they start putting out Christmas items around, what, April I think it is?
So, we put summer behind, and start preparing for the colder seasons. Which, again, in Florida means we may have to reach for the sweater buried in the back of the closet. And possibly wear closed-toe shoes.
But if you are like me, one of your favorite things about this time of year is the smells. The smell of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, the smell of warm chocolate chip cookies at Christmas. The pine scent of the Christmas tree. Peppermint candy canes.
And the candles – the holiday candle scents are the best, aren’t they?
Well, Young Living has a lot of essential oils that smell pretty awesome too. And when you diffuse them, the whole room will smell great.
I found a couple of “recipes” for fall diffusing blends, and they smell WONDERFUL.

Here they are:

Young Living’s Harvest Blend
5 drops orange essential oil
3 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
1 drop clove essential oil
1 drop nutmeg essential oil

Fall Scents Blend 1
2 drops lemon essential oil
4 drops orange essential oil
3 drops clove essential oil
3 drops cinnamon bark essential oil

Fall Scents Blend 2
2 drops clove essential oil
2 drops orange essential oil
1 drop patchouli essential oil
1 drop Idaho Blue Spruce essential oil

Woodsy Blend
4 drops Frankincense essential oil
3 drops Cypress essential oil
2 drops Vetiver essential oil

Those are just a few examples of the combinations of oils you can diffuse for great fall scents. And remember, many of these oils promote calm and relaxation too, so the benefits of diffusing them will be twofold: great smells and relaxation.
And here’s a great perk.

Through October 31st, if you order 190PV or more, you will receive 3 free oils – Cinnamon bark, orange, and nutmeg! Those oils are in most of recipes listed above, so if you don’t have them, here’s a great way to get them.

So here’s a scenario for those of you who haven’t yet started using Young Living essential oils:
Order the Premium Starter Kit = 100PV
Add clove essential oil = 15.25PV
Add patchouli essential oil = 33.75PV
Add Idaho Blue Spruce essential oil = 24.75PV
Add Cypress essential oil = 19.25PV
Add Vetiver essential oil = 20.75PV
Your total would be 213.75PV (cost would be $263.75), and you would have EVERY oil listed in the all of the diffuser blends above (and the diffuser)!
You will automatically qualify for the 3 FREE oils (you don’t have to add them to the order – they are added on automatically when you hit 190PV or higher).

What a deal! 16 oils + a diffuser + 3 FREE oils!!!

Plus you receive other perks, such as samples, a product guide, 24% discount for all orders (not including the Premium Starter Kit), and the opportunity to receive credits towards FREE oils if you join the Essential Rewards program! (ask me for details about the ER program)
Sound good?
Ready to order?
Any Questions?

And for the Young Living “veterans” – what oils do you diffuse in the fall? I’d love to hear your recipes!

Myth Busting Monday – “MLM’s are not trustworthy”

Myth

I once read an article that stated that MLM’s (multi-level marketing companies, also called direct selling companies) were not trustworthy. (Now, again, I can only speak for Young Living essential oils, the company of which I am an independent distributor).
But the article, which was about essential oils, went on to criticize Young Living among other direct selling essential oil brands. The author stated that the only trustworthy essential oil companies were “small, not corporate size”, and ones which are owned by an aromatherapy practitioner.
Who was the author of the article? An aromatherapy practitioner. Hmmmm, what’s wrong with this picture??
The author then went on to make false claims about the bigger companies. Thankfully the article had many commenters who pointed out the truth about Young Living oils, and backed those truths up with FACTS.
So, many times there will be direct selling dissenters because, well, they want people to buy from them, not you. And hey, competition is fine, as long as you’re doing it honestly and with integrity. And as long as you have products that deliver.
I’m not saying that all MLM’s are trustworthy. In fact, I am sure there are many that are not. I am strictly talking about Young Living essential oils here.
Another thing people assume about MLM’s is that they are pyramid schemes. Well, last I heard, pyramid schemes are illegal. And they are very different than MLM’s like Young Living. For example, pyramid schemes sell the business, not the product. The sole means of income in pyramid schemes is selling a “share” of the company’s “pie”. That doesn’t work, especially if you are at the bottom of the pyramid. Because most people realize that it doesn’t work, so they bail. That doesn’t sound like a good business model to me.
Young Living independent distributors can recruit others to join the company as distributors. But that’s not the emphasis of the company, the oils are. The PRODUCT. Most distributors like myself, believe in and use the oils regularly. We LOVE our oils!! And we get excited about sharing how great they are. Plus, there are many benefits to having your own business as a YL distributor. I will get back to that in a minute.
First, I want to talk a little more about other successful MLM’s.
Have you heard of Avon? Tupperware? Mary Kay? Amway?
All MLM’s.
All successful.
They have been around for years, and most people don’t realize they are MLM’s. They are generally regarded as trustworthy. Because people love their products. And guess what? They invite new distributors in to the fold the same way Young Living does.

Young Living has been around for 20 years. You can read all about the start of Young Living and its founder, D. Gary Young here.

Ok, so here are some of the benefits of becoming a Young Living independent distributor.
First, an income. It’s a flexible, part-time or full-time job, that you can work from your very own home. This is perfect for stay at home moms (or stay at home dads!) who want to add a little extra money to the household income. You can work it as little or as much as you want.

I made the decision to blog about oils, but it’s not required. Some people are better at selling on a more personal, face-to-face level. I prefer to ramble on about oils in blog posts and hope people don’t want to throw things at me.
It’s all up to you.
And you get some perks as an independent distributor. Like reduced shipping on orders. All items at a 24% discount. And you earn credits on every order – which add up to free oils!!

And here’s the best part.

Even if all those benefits are still not enough to make you want to sell Young Living essential oils…..it’s okay. You don’t have to. You will never be forced to sell. You can simply be a consumer, either as a wholesale member (discounted prices, Premium Starter Kit makes you eligible), or as a retail member.
Not bad for an MLM, huh?

Ok, have I rambled too long again?
Are you picking up things to throw at me? (aahhh, the safety of being a blogger)
