What’s my favorite part of the month?
Definitely when my Essential Rewards order arrives at my door!
The Young Living Essential Rewards program is the perfect subscription for any essential oils user. It’s a completely customizable wellness box that allows you to earn so many awesome rewards.
Every month I get a box with some of my must haves, like NingXia Red, as well as new oils and products I have yet to try.
Are you wondering if Essential Rewards is right for you?
Well then let’s dive into what Essential Rewards is, how it works, and how to get started! 🙂
So, What Is The Essential Rewards Program?
Essential Rewards (ER) is Young Living’s loyalty program. It’s basically a completely customizable subscription that allows you to choose any Young Living products to be delivered to your door each month.
In return for participating in the monthly subscription, Young Living sends you exclusive loyalty gifts! You also earn points on every purchase you make, which allows you to snag some free products!
Oh, and you also get access to discounted shipping rates.
“So it’s a monthly wellness box curated by me? That also gets me FREE Young Living products?”
Essential rewards makes it hassle-free to get the products you love each month. Orders will process automatically on the date of your choice. All you have to do is choose what goes into each order.
And if you don’t feel like choosing products yourself each month, you can select discounted Young Living product packages.
By subscribing to ER, you’ll get a chance to try all of the products you have been wanting to try and ensure you are always stocked up on your favorites.
Sound good? We think so too. We always make sure to have our NingXia and a handful of oils that promote great sleep.
But it’s also been fun to try other products that have been supporting our family is amazing ways!
How Much Does Essential Rewards Cost?
Subscribing to Essential Rewards is free, but to qualify for all of the benefits, your monthly order needs to be at least 50 PV(Personal Volume), which is basically $50, though there are exceptions.
Most products on Young Living’s website has a cash value and a PV. Typically, those are the same. However, for some products, like diffusers, the PV will be less.
But remember! You are earning points back on every Essential Rewards order that you make. So while you may be spending $50(or more) each month, you’ll be getting at least 10% back in the form of points.
You can spend much more than $50 if you would like, and you will earn points on alllll of it.
So while it’s not exactly cash back, or a discount, it’s still incredibly valuable to any essential oils user.
If you would like to be eligible for earning commissions, orders will need to be at least 100 PV. And no, you don’t need to commit to “building the business” in order to receive commissions.
If you love essential oils and naturally talk about them with your friends, family, or coworkers, and they want to try them out, you can make a commission off of their order(might as well, if you are going to place the order anyways!)
Imagine if every month, 1 or 2 people that you knew were interested in these incredible oils you are always raving about. You might just earn enough to get your orders for free each month!!
And of course, for those looking to build the business in hopes of earning extra income or replacing their current income totally, the only qualification is to place an ER order of at least 100 PV.
How Does ER Work?
Young Living’s loyalty program is meant to be as hassle free as possible.
There are 2 ways you can order every month. You can either choose each product that will be in your order, totaling a minimum of 50 PV, or you can select a discounted Essential Rewards Kit to make it super easy to try new things.
You’ll need to be a Young Living member in order to utilize Essential Rewards(more on becoming a member down below). As a member, you’ll log into the Young Living Virtual Office dashboard to manage your orders.
You will see a menu on the left of the dashboard with the option, “Essential Rewards,” and you will be able to manage your monthly order here!
It will tell you the date your next order is scheduled, how much you will be charged, what the PV is of the order, etc.
Click “View Order” to see what is currently in the order. It will also show you any promotional items or free rewards that are shipping with your next order(I’m getting some orange oil!).
Click “Change Order” to add or remove items.
Adding products from your order dashboard is super easy. Simply click a category and a list of each product, with an “Add To Order” button is shown on the right.
Essential Rewards Kits
For those looking for the easiest possible orders each month at a great price, ER kits are the way to go. Simply add the kit to your order and you are done for the month! You can save a bunch of money by purchasing these kits as opposed to ordering each item separately.
If you are looking for additional incentives to join the ER program, these discounted kits for ER members are definitely a plus. Discounted products that you are still earning points on?

Earning Rewards And Points
The big benefit of Essential Rewards is, well, earning rewards! On every purchase that you make, you earn points which can be redeemed for Young Living products. You also earn loyalty gifts for consistently placing ER orders every few months. Woop!
Young Living also runs monthly promotions. If you spend a certain amount of PV, you’ll earn free products. You don’t need to be on Essential Rewards to take advantage of these, but you do need to be a Young Living member.
What Are The Free Loyalty Gifts And How Do You Get Them?
The first year of Essential Rewards is the most exciting in regards to free gifts. For every 3 months of consecutive ER orders, Young Living will send you a free bottle of oil!
- For placing an ER order for 3 consecutive months, you’ll earn Peppermint Vitality essential oil, 5 ml.
- For placing an ER order for 6 consecutive months, you’ll earn Thieves Vitality essential oil blend, 5 ml.
- For placing an ER order for 9 consecutive months, you’ll earn Melaleuca Alternifolia essential oil, 15 ml
- For placing an ER order for 12 consecutive months, you’ll earn Loyalty. This exclusive essential oil blend was created Young Living’s founder specifically for ER members who order for 12 months.
After that, you’ll earn an exclusive gift after each year that you continually participate in the program.
Once you earn the reward, you will automatically receive it in the following months shipment. So after 3 months of qualifying orders, you will earn Peppermint, which will be included in your order for month 4.
How To Earn Points
So while the Loyalty Gifts are the most exciting part of Essential Rewards in the beginning, points become the most exciting thing as you stay on longer. The longer you place consistent orders, the more points back you’ll start to earn(essentially, the higher discount you receive).
- The first 3 months of your subscription will each earn you 10% back on your your orders. So if you place a 50 PV order each month, you’ll earn 5 PV back on each of those orders(you get a discount right from the very beginning!)
- For months 4-24 of your ER subscription, you’ll earn 20% back on all of your purchases. So the same 50 PV orders will earn you 10 PV back.
- Once you hit 25 months on ER, you start earning 25% back on all your purchases. That’s a lot! You’ll be able to earn some serious free product with that.
So over the course of your first year, if you spend the minimum 50 PV each month, you will have spent 600 PV($600 or so) and you will have earned 105 PV back(or basically $105 worth in discounts).
That’s not a bad deal when you are buying products that make your home happier and healthier each month!
Just a note, you earn points back on the total PV of each order. PV is assigned to each qualifying product. You won’t earn points back on shipping costs.
How To Use Essential Rewards Points
Now it’s time for the fun part! Using points to get all those free products. Redeeming points is super easy.
When you log into your Virtual Office, it will show you how many points you currently have. By clicking, “Details,” you can see your current earning bracket and when some of your points will expire(points expire 12 months after earning them).
You can redeem up to 375 points per month.
To start redeeming, click, “Shop To Redeem Points Now,” from your points dashboard. You’ll add products to your cart and you will see the Redemption Form on the left side of the checkout screen, after selecting your shipping method.
You will be able to select which items in your cart you would like to use points for. Points can only be used for products and cannot be used to pay for shipping.
Get On Board!
You can probably tell that we are big fans of ER(no shame)! We have started to see the benefits of using oils daily as well as replacing yucky products from our house, and so we believe that the program is worth it.

FAQ – Essential Rewards
Is there a commitment?
Nope! There is no commitment and you can cancel the program at any time.
Can you skip a month?
Yes! However if you stop your subscription for any length of time, everything resets – your earnings rate, your loyalty gift calendar, and you will lose any points that are still in your account.
You can rejoin the program at anytime, but you will start out earning 10% back again and will have to wait the designated time frame to earn your free loyalty gifts(however, you cannot re-earn a gift you earned previously).
How do you cancel?
You can cancel at any time by calling customer service. The phone number is listed in the footer of the Young Living Website.
