I am a Young Living Independent Distributor.  However, this is an honest review of my personal experience with Young Living.  If you <3 a brand other than Young Living—cool!  This is just my personal experience with Young Living.  


Are you new here? I also have the following posts to help you live gluten-free without the stress!

How to Get Started with Young Living

If you are just getting started with Young Living, and really want to try their pure essential oils, I recommend that you go with membership and start with the Premium Starter Kit.

This kit has everything you need to start using oils at home at almost 50% off retail price!    The starter kit includes the following:

  • Your choice of a diffuser,
  • 11 essential oils (5-ml each of Lavender, Copaiba Vitality™, Peppermint Vitality™, Lemon Vitality™, Frankincense, Thieves® Vitality™, Raven™, DiGize™ Vitality™, PanAway®, Citrus Fresh™, and Stress Away™
  • AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment (to roll oils directly onto your skin)
  • and samples of Young Living’s Thieves household cleaner and NingXia Red

(note: at the time of this post’s publishing, and according to customer service, neither the Thieves household cleaner or NingXia Red’s contain gluten. Learn more about Young Living and their gluten-free products here.)

Once you purchase the premium starter kit you will receive benefits such as 24% off of retail price of future Young Living purchases, you can earn commission if your friends decide to buy their own oils instead of borrowing yours, and you can also sign up for the optional Essential Rewards program to save even more money if you decide to order regularly.

In addition, you can choose to be added into a private Facebook group.  This Facebook group was (and still is) so helpful for learning all about my oils and other Young Living products!  I ask questions in it all the time.

How to Order

The only way to order Young Living products is through an independent distributor (like me) on the Young Living website.  It only takes 10 easy steps!

Step 1: Click here to get started.

Step 2: To purchase the Premium Starter Kit you need to sign up as a member.

Step 3: Make sure that the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 1951069 (or you won’t have access to our awesome Facebook group and the other resources we provide to help you learn more about how to use essential oils) and click continue.

Step 4: Confirm that it lists me as your sponsor/enroller and click continue.

Step 5: Choose your diffuser.  Currently, you can choose between either the DewDrop or Desert Mist diffuser.  Both are included in the Premium Starter Kit base price.  But, if you wanted, you could upgrade to the super pretty Aria Ultrasonic diffuser.

Step 6: If you already know you will LOVE your oils, you can set up an order for an Essential Rewards Kit.  This is totally optional!  You can order these at any time once you are a member.

Step 7:  If there are any other Young Living products you wanted to try out now, add them here.  Just click “Add More Products.”  Otherwise, you can hit “Next”

Step 8:  If you didn’t add an Essential Rewards Kit or other additional items, you’ll see this pop up.  Click “Continue Enrollment.”

Step 9: Fill out the rest of your personal ordering information and your oils will be on their way!

Step 10: Email me at sharon {at} thehelpfulgf {dot} com letting me know you ordered! Then I can email you some resources and add you to our awesome Facebook group!

What’s the catch?

There isn’t one! 😉

Signing up for membership does not mean that you have to sell anything.  While you can share the product with your friends to earn commissions, there is absolutely no requirement, or pressure, to do so!  The majority of Young Living members do not sell anything at all.

Furthermore, you are absolutely not required to buy anything after this first purchase!  In order to remain a wholesale member (keep your 24% off discount) you must make one qualifying purchase within a year.  But again, that’s just to keep your discount (and if you don’t order, there’s no point in having a discount anyways, so it’s honestly not a big deal if you do lose your discount)!  However, if you do want to make monthly purchases, you can sign up for a totally optional program called Essential Rewards and save even more money.  I was a member for over a year before I decided to join Essential Rewards.

I’m so excited that you are starting your essential oils journey!  If you have any lingering questions about ordering, please contact me directly at sharon {at} thehelpfulgf {dot} com.
