how to become a young living distributor

What if you could build an actual income by doing something you love?

What if you were excited to wake up and get to work each day?

Wouldn’t it be great if work was as natural as talking to friends, family and neighbors about how your family is doing and what products are helping you and your family feel happier and healthier?

If you love essential oils and love helping people, becoming a Young Living distributor could be the perfect opportunity to build a business doing something you enjoy, doing something that helps others, and doing something that is as flexible as you want it to be.

What Is A Young Living Distributor?

A Young Living Distributor does just that – distributes Young Living essential oils and other products 🙂

Anybody who loves essential oils and Young Living products can become an independent distributor and build a business selling essential oils.

You get to educate people on the benefits and uses of essential oils, and encourage them to sign up as a member to purchase Young Living products with the goal of creating a happier and healthier home.

But selling essential oils isn’t the only thing that you do. You get to build a team. A community. A tribe. You get to encourage and invest in other people who also hope to build this business with you.

And you get to do all of this your way, on your schedule, wherever you want. You can go as fast as you want, or as slow as you want. You can choose to make enough to cover your personal essential oil cost every month, or work to replace yours and even your spouse’s income.

But before you get to far into this, I just want to point out that selling essential oils and building a team IS NOT EASY. It takes work and it takes dedication. It’s absolutely worth it if you are able to stick it out, but just know you gotta put the effort in first 😉

Here is an overview of how to become an independent Young Living distributor and why it might be a good idea for you!

How To Become A Young Living Distributor

Becoming a Young Living essential oils distributor is an incredible way of taking your passion for using essential oils and your joy of helping and serving others and combining them in a way that can make a living for you and your family.

It’s a win-win-win. How do you know if it’s right for you? If you love the product, you love helping people and would like to make an income doing it, than it’s right for you 🙂

To become a Young Living distributor, all you really need to do is join as a member by purchasing a starter kit and spend a minimum of $100 per month using the Essential Rewards program. Yes, it’s really that easy!

Click here to learn all about the Starter Kit.

Ps, I will send you a $25 Amazon gift card if you purchase a Premium Starter Kit and jump on my team, whether you want to start the business or not. Read below for details 😉

1. Become A Member By Getting Your Starter Kit

4. Choose your kit

The kits with the Desert Mist Diffuser and the Dewdrop Diffuser are both $165.

We love the Desert Mist! It changes colors and my 3 year old loves it!

But if you are ever hoping to get the Aria diffuser (the really cool one), the best deal is when you purchase the Aria starter kit.

5. Essential Rewards

I recommend using your Premium Starter Kit as your first month’s Essential Rewards order! (Young Living’s loyalty program where you receive points on all purchases and earn freebies!) It’s basically a completely customizable monthly wellness box that earns free products and points – yes please!

This is one of the requirements for becoming a distributor and earning commissions, so now is the best time to sign up for it.

Add any other items to your order that you want to try by clicking “Add More Products”. Otherwise, finish up the Starter Kit purchase by selecting “Next!”

7. Create your login

Create your login information for the use on the website. You are choosing how you want to receive your commissions. Most people start off as an “Individual without social security number.” You can change this later if you would like.

9. Claim your gift

Yay!! Now send me a message on Instagram or email me at hello.mama.jaeger [at] yahoo.com to let me know you bought a kit. This way, I can send you some awesome bonuses!

2. Setting Up Essential Rewards

Your next step to becoming a distributor is to set up your Essential Rewards order, or monthly purchase.

If you love the products (which we know you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this ;), then you’ll be happy enough to spend the minimum of $100/month to qualify for commissions. To do this, you’ll set up Essential Rewards, which is the monthly loyalty program for Young Living Members.

You can do this while signing up as a member and getting your Starter Kit. But if you are already a member, you can simply login to your virtual office and click the “Essential Rewards” option from the menu on the left of the dashboard.

To use Essential Rewards, you only need to spend a minimum of $50/month. However, to become an independent distributor and to “do the business,” you’ll need to spend $100/month to qualify for commissions.

But what’s great about this is that you are literally just buying products that you are going to use! (and share with others) You aren’t paying for the right to start this business. There are no membership fees or any of that. All that is required is for you to buy and use the products you are sharing about.

Click here to learn all about Essential Rewards and the amazing perks that come with it. You can also read about how to change your monthly orders.

3. Setup Your Payment Options

Once you have your account set up, you can click My Account in the menu on the left. Then click My Profile, and Edit Profile.

Here, you’ll have the option to setup direct deposit by inputting your bank account and routing number. Otherwise, if you do nothing, you’ll get a paper check sent in the mail once you have made commissions.

Young Living pays out once per month.

Now you are all set up! That was pretty easy, right? Now let’s take a look into what the business can be for you.

Why Should I Distribute Young Living Essential Oils?

If you are interested in essential oils distributorship, I just want to remind you that it’s work. It’s hard work. But it’s extremely rewarding. And just remember, nothing that is worthwhile in life comes easy.

It gives you the opportunity to build an incredible source of income. It’s an income source that can grow as much as you want it to. There are no caps or ceilings, except those you put above yourself.

It’s an income stream that grows and builds upon all of your previous work. It’s not a typically job, where you get paid only for the work you do. The income that you earn compounds, builds on top of itself.

It’s an income stream that you can run from home, or anywhere else. It’s totally flexible. You can be in California, New Zealand, Greece, and so long as you can connect with people on either your phone or computer, you can keep working it.

It’s an income stream that fits around your life. Work at it in the morning, or late at night, or when your kids are napping, or while you are on your lunch break at work.

And it’s not just an income stream. It’s an amazing community of people that you are surrounding yourself with. It’s an opportunity to grow, to challenge yourself, to become the person you know you can be. And to help others do the same, to step into their true, bold, confident selves.

And you get to do it all by talking about a product you love so much, that has helped you so much and that you know has the ability to help others.

But what will people think of me?

The answer to that question holds a lot of people back. But from my experience [so far], people either think it’s awesome and cool and they listen, or they just don’t care and ignore me and everyone goes on their merry way.

Nobody is mad, nobody is casting judgments, nobody is forever walking out on you.

And while you have the potential of annoying people, you don’t have to be that person. 

Network marketing can have a bad connotation attached to it. However, you and I have the potential to give it the better name that it deserves, because this business model is actually quite beautiful.

How To Sell Young Living

Selling Young Living products sounds kinda fun. But how the heck do I even do it?

There are a number of things you can do when selling essential oils from home. You can host ‘make and take’ parties, where you invite friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, over to your house for a fun, lighthearted time where you can show people how to make essential oil products, such as roller bottles, lotions and other products.

You get to share your joy, love, and passion for the products, share why the products are amazing, share stories of how they have helped you, and simply inform people how they can do it too.

Tell them how to get a kit, or even walk them through the sign-in process then and there. Hosting these types of parties is one of the best ways to jumpstart your career as an essential oil distributor.

You can also just listen. Listen to people on Facebook, Instagram, at work, at your kids school. What are they struggling with? What are their kids struggling with? What are there frustrations?

Is it stress, worry, lack of sleep? Do you know of an essential oil that can help with that? (yes, yes you do)

By listening to what people are saying (people you already know), you can simply recommend products that have helped you with the same issue and even offer them a sample. If they love it, share with them how they can get started, and what other things oils can help with as well.

There are plenty of things you can do to build this business and help people. And it’s not all scary. Most of it, is actually quite natural.

How To Sell Essential Oils Online

To sell online, you don’t necessarily need a blog, you don’t need to be an influencer, and you don’t have to spend money on ads or anything weird. All you need is a Facebook account (and hopefully a few friends ;).

Hosting Facebook live classes is another great way of connecting with people, showing them how to use oils, explaining the benefits of different types of oils, sharing your wellness journey, and explaining how people can start buying and using oils for themselves.

If you are on the shy side, maybe start with this before jumping into an in-person event.

How To Make Money Selling Young Living Essential Oils

So how do you actually make money? When it comes down to it, you make money be referring new members to buy products. You make a commission on any purchase that people make, if they sign up with you. Not just the first purchase, but every purchase they ever make.

There are various bonuses and incentives that Young Living offers for those who hustle as well.

What’s great about the business model as well is that if you sign somebody up, and that person signs another person up, you will earn commissions from them as well. They aren’t directly under you, but they are a part of your team, your organization (the underlying principle of network marketing, which isn’t a bad word).

So if you are wondering how to make money with Young Living, and you hope to build a business that can replace your income (and even your spouse’s income), building a team of people who are also going to build the business with you is the foundation.

So it’s not only about selling essential oils, but about investing in people and building a tribe.
