Joining the Essential Rewards (ER) Loyalty Program

Once you’ve placed your enrolment order you’re officially a wholesale member! When you sign up you have the option to join Young Living’s Essential Rewards (ER) program if you choose. By setting up a monthly ER subscription, your favourite products are delivered to your door hassle-free every month, on your chosen date.

If you’d like to try new products each month, making changes to your subscription is easy – either online or by calling Young Living’s helpful Member Services team. From cleaning, wellness, supplements and baby products, you can go toxic chemical free in just one fully customizable monthly subscription!

I always suggest people opt into ER at the very start because right away you earn 10PV point which is 1 point away from a FREE lemon essential oil! Then if your date rolls around the following month and you don’t need anything, I can show you how to skip the month.

Benefits of young livings essential rewards loyalty program

The minimum value of a monthly ER order is 50PV. When you login to your account via the Young Living website, you can customize what you receive each month (Alongside the price of a product you will see a PV number, this is the points value (PV) assigned to that product).

For every order your place you’ll accumulate points that you can then cash in for FREE products! The longer you place orders of at least 50 PV, the larger the percentage you earn back grows. For the first three months you receive 10% back in points, this then becomes 20% until month 25 when you receive an amazing 25% back in loyalty reward points!

Its all so much easier than it sounds, promise! I highly suggest you do this especially if you are working on a non-toxic lifestyle. Those points add up to major freebies!!

You might be comparing essential oils from various companies and wondering why the price of Young Living Essential oils is higher. Let me help explain, because it truely is worth buying the highest quality oils possible when you’re using them in your home and garden.

What’s the Difference Between Essential Oil Brands?

Therapeutic Properties

Firstly, if you think about the therapeutic, healing properties of a plant oil, so many factors can impact the chemical composition of that oil. For example, orange essential oil; the ripeness of the fruit, the time of day it’s picked, the sprays that are used on the farm, how its pressed, the temperature it’s stored at, there are literally HUNDREDS of factors that can impact the chemical makeup of that one oil!

This in turn affects the therapeutic quality of that little bottle and whether it is effective in what you are using it for.

This is why every bottle of Young Living essential oil is tested 90 times before it arrives at your door! No other company takes such an impressive approach to quality control.

Misleading Marketing

So many brands use clever marketing to sell their oils. Saying 100% ‘PURE’ essential oil on the bottle does not mean that it is actually 100% lavender essential oil for example. There are no regulations around this and it has been found that some brands have as little as 5% ACTUAL essential oil in the bottle, the rest? Could be anything whipped up in a factory in China!

There is 80% more ‘pure’ lavender oil on the market than there is lavender plants in the world!

If I’m using essential oils in my garden, spraying the soil and food I then eat, I want to know that the essential oils I’m using are exactly what they say they are. Otherwise I might as well be using chemical sprays after all!

Organic Standards

When it comes to using products in my home and garden, choosing organic over commercial is a no brainer. Interestingly, Young Living found the USDA organic standard too relaxed and therefore created their own organic standard to rate their oils against: their Seed to Seal promise.

As you can see in this table, their level of testing is incredibly strict in order to maintain the quality and efficacy of their essential oils.

Because of this, they are also one of the few brands whose oils are safe to ingest!

Ethically Sourced

All of Young Living oils are sourced from their corporate-owned farms, partner farms, and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. This enables them to source conscientiously and with sensitivity to local communities and ecosystems.

Young Living actually owns the majority of their farms and unlike other brands, they’re open to the public to go and visit. One of the many ways in which they are transparent with their customers.

Why Young Living?

A few stand out points for me about Young Living are that:

  • YL have seed control
  • YL distills on site
  • YL go beyond the regulations required for organic! 
  • YL own the majority of their farms and are open to the public. All of the partner farms are under strict supervision and need to oblige by YL farming standards to maintain their high level of quality. 

After trying different brands, nothing has compared to the purity and potency of a YL essential oil (you just have to smell the oils to instantly notice the difference!) This also means that I don’t have to use as many drops as I would other brands, making it more cost effective. Because yes, YL is that little bit more, but the quality is worth it and in the long run, you’re using less product for better results.

Final Words on Essential Oil Starter Kits

Phew, I think I’ve covered everything! Hopefully by now you’ve realised the importance of choosing high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils when it comes to your home and garden.
