Are you at the point where you are ready to buy a kit? I remember being confused about member vs wholesale and which kit. This is directly from the doc that helped me when I got started (only I replaced my mentors number with mine):
How to Get Started
If you want oils you can always purchase from a distributor but you also have the option to become a Wholesale Member.
To keep your Wholesale Member status, you aren’t required to sell. You simply are now able to purchase your oils at a discounted price. And you get a kit of oils and a diffuser.
Sometimes you may hear the “Wholesale Membership” referred to as a “Distributor” – that never means that you HAVE to build a business. (Of course, if you want to, you can. In fact, to Distribute YL you don’t have to buy some fancy additional kit, you don’t have to purchase $1000 of product and we will NEVER suggest you carry a stockpile of Oils to sell to friends. Distributors get the same starter kits regular Wholesale Members do, they’ve just made some money by telling friends/family about the amazing Oils.)
Okay, back to the Kit. The kit I recommend EVERYONE get is the Premium Starter Kit for $160. It is truly the best kit you can imagine. There are other options, but I PROMISE this $160 kit is THE MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK. It comes with the Everyday Oils ($163 retail)… 5ml bottles of Lavender, Peppermint, Thieves, Purification, Copaiba, RC, Frankincense, Lemon, Panaway and Digize. And Stress Away.
You also get some samples of oils and another awesome YL product, Ningxia Red. And a free diffuser. These diffusers retail for $98.
11 oils, 10 sample packets, AND the diffuser for $160.
The other two kits they offer at $40 and $75 don’t make sense to me at all.
The $40 kit comes with the samples but NO diffuser and NO oil bottles.
The $75 kit comes with the diffuser and samples and Stress-Away, but NO kit of 10 oils. My issue with the $75 kit is that you have a diffuser, but practically nothing to diffuse and you’ll have to buy more oils right away just to get started… so why not get the 10 oils for $75 more? The only time I recommend the $40 kit is if someone is anxious to get started and budget just doesn’t allow for the $160 kit. I will tell you, EVERY SINGLE person who has ordered the $40 kit ends up getting the $160 kit that month or the following, without fail. So again, if budget allows, the larger kit is THE best value.
There is also a Thieves Products/Thieves Cleaner Kit and Ningxia Red Kit if either of those products are what drew you to Young Living.
The other advantage you have is that the JoyDroppers have a crazy amount of resources for you to benefit from! One of the best resources is our Members-Only Facebook page called Essential Exchange. This is NOT put out by Young Living, this is simply a place where our readers who have become members can communicate with one another, share what is working for them, ask questions, and build relationships with others who are on this journey to a more healthy and natural lifestyle. This group will help cut your searching time down and get your questions answered quickly. I would love for you to be part of our group.
So… how do you sign up for your own Wholesale Membership?! Just follow the directions below.
Step 1: Click https://www.youngliving.com/vo/#/signup/start to Get Started.
Step 2: Keep “Member” checked (you can’t order the starter kit as a customer). This signs you as a “member” to Young Living and it’s the only way to get access to the kit and the 24% discount you get afterwards. It’s really important!
Step 3: Make sure to enter the member number of whoever introduced you to YL in both the sponsor & enroller blanks. My member number is 2183425.
Step 4: Complete the Info Requested. Your social will be filed away, and never used unless you get a paycheck.
Step 5: On the next page, choose premium starter kit, then compete payment info. Let me know if you have any trouble!
YAY!! You are a member!! Wooooohoooo!!! I remember how excited I was to receive my starter kit. Your membership will stay active as long as you spend at least $50 in a calendar year. You do not have to continue to renew your membership each year… that kit was a one-time thing and you will remain a member as long as you spend that $50 a year. Which, trust me… that won’t be a problem.
