I am really excited to introduce to you things that I use everyday to you at Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body. One of those things is an array of essential oils that I discovered this past winter and am SO GLAD that I did.
Young Living essential oils are powerful and are created to work perfectly with our bodies. You may have been hearing the buzz about essential oils all over social media recently. It is funny that the media talks about essential oils like it is a new trend – people have been using them for thousands of years! There are COUNTLESS ways to use your oils to improve your health NATURALLY.
I use essential oils more than you could imagine, and I have already blogged about a few ways I use them. Just click on any of the images below for more info on those posts.
I got started with essential oils by purchasing the AWESOME Young Living Premium Starter Kit. The Premium Starter Kit is SUCH a Good Deal on its own at $160 and now it's better than ever! Check out the brand new kit!
Here's how to get started!
1) Head over to the Young Living website. You will see the screen below. Be sure the “wholesale” member option is selected so that you don’t end up paying retail prices!
2) Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2495999 so that I can send you your educational freebies!
3) You will be asked for your social security number. DON'T FREAK OUT! This is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business, so the IRS requires it. If you never sell anything, your social security number will not be used for any reason and rest assured thatYoung Living will never share this info with anyone. If you prefer not to put in your social security number, then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead.
4) Choose your starter kit. Select which starter kit you want to get. My recommendation would be the Premium Starter Kit (and it is one of the kits that will qualify you to receive all the freebies from me).
The Premium Starter Kit & the Premium Starter Kit with Bamboo Diffuser both include 11 bottles of oils. The oils included in the Everyday Oils box (10 – 5 ml bottles) – see picture below – are the oils I use almost every single day!
If you prefer to try a different premium starter kit, you could try the Ningxia or Thieves. Both are filled with products I use every day. Any of the premium starter kits listed qualify you for the freebies if in US, Canada or military.
5) Complete the check out process. That's it!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Does signing up make me a “distributor”?
Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.
If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).
Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?
It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it?
I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.
Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.
Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.
With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.
I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.
How will I know which oils to use for what?
One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils!
The reference guide that I’m giving away as part of this promotion is also a HUGE resource. You can look up almost anything in it and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.
Does Young Living only sell essential oils?
The answer to this one was surprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.
