First things first, you need to know your market. Is there a demand for essential oils online? do people buy essential oils online? can you make money selling essential oils online? Then how to start selling essential oils online Etc.

I am a consumer of essential oils and do research into many markets to see where I can possibly make money online and also help others to do this. So if you’re looking to explore the “essential oils” niche, you can enter that into the Google Trends search bar and hey presto! Very rarely do I find one that is such a great opportunity as with essential oils. Take a look at this proof:

How To Make Money With Essential oils Google Trends

Those two lines represent Google searches since 2004. The red line is the general trend of “natural remedies”. You can see that it stagnated for a while, it has plateaued and even declined recently.

The blue line shows searches associated with “essential oils”. Interest quickly ramped since 2013, and there was an explosion of interest around 2015 onward, reaching peak interest in January 2018. There have been slight dips in between but it looks like a seasonal riser, regularly peaking around December/January each year. Even if the trend doesn’t continue to increase over the next few years, that still represents an enormous interest globally.

The essential oils industry/niche is pretty well evergreen because there are just so many uses for them and so many people love them.

And using a keyword research tool I use, I can get an approximate number of how many people search for essential oils on Google every month:

How To Make Money With Essential oils Keyword Research Essential Oils

There’s over 50,000 searches every month!. A lot of people are searching each and every month, so this is further proof that this is a great business to get into.

As well as that gigantic number, there are virtually thousands of related searches that you can readily take advantage of to grow your business (shown further below).

This data shows you that the market is good and there is money to be made. Apart from the data, think for a moment – how many uses are there for essential oils? Hundreds? Thousands! They can be used to relieve pain, reduce stress, a range of health benefits, improve your happiness and mood, and even be used as a bug repellent and cleaner.

In my case, i’m just a average guy that believed that if the house was clean enough, that’s probably enough. Recently my wife loves using essential oils at home and so I have begun to appreciate the aroma from the diffuser around our home, so the house smells fresh when people visit. I’m also very health conscious and i’ve been introduced to the range of health benefits from my naturopath to improve my own health and other family members. I’ve always loved lavender and now my personal choices are peppermint for fragrance and lemon oil for health.

My example of my own experience goes to show you that everyone is a potential market and a possible customer – not just ladies!. Men, moms, parents, sick, healthy, happy, depressed, young people, older people…everyone. It just depends on the customer you intend to market and who you want to reach out to and help with essential oils.

Having the passion for the products such as essential oils is a positive element to any business venture and even better if you genuinely want to help people. Now let’s take a look at a few business models of how you can make money selling or promoting products in the essential oils industry.

How To Make Money Selling Essential Oils

There are many ways that you can earn money from an essential oils business. I am going to explain how we can do it online.

I’ll cover briefly various options for you to consider and get into detail about the one I’m most confident with (and thrilled about) later in this post:

  1. Network Marketing or Direct Selling
  2. Open Your Own Online Store
  3. White Labelling and Reselling on Marketplaces Like Amazon, eBay and Etsy
  4. Affiliate Marketing – Build a Niche Website (Blog)

How to sell essential oils with Network Marketing or Direct Selling

You may have arrived on this page because you were researching either doTERRA or Young Living. These are the two biggest players in the network marketing industry for essential oils. They don’t offer an affiliate program, instead they offer what’s called a Multi-Level Marketing system that’s based more on “one-on-one” sharing with others.

I value the highest quality essential oils so am a customer member of Young Living, you can check out my review here.

In multi-level or network marketing, How people try to make money is by joining a team of “independent associates”, become a distributor and sell products to the public. Sales are often by word of mouth and direct sales. Usually distributors earn commissions for their own sales and also for sales made by the people they recruit.

how to make money with essential oils network marketing

For example, if your friend Maria brings you into the company, your startup package and also a percentage of your sales create income for her. Then if you recruit people into the company, their startup packages and a percentage of their sales will create income for you.

This is why it’s called “multi level” marketing (MLM), because you get paid on different levels.

Most MLM companies pay total commissions of around 30 to 45 percent of the price sold to distributors for resale, or prices for which consumers buy directly from the company. Many MLM companies that market their products through distributors sell quality items at competitive prices. But some offer goods that are overpriced. I have noticed that the products are usually more expensive than what you find in stores and on Amazon. So if you’re interested in a product from an MLM company, go check Amazon first.

Another thing i’m wary of is that your earnings really rely on how many people you recruit for the company. It also means that you are bolted onto promoting only one company, rather than being objective and choosing the best option for your customers.

So unless you’re actively building your MLM business and team and in the typically top 1% of associates and receiving your chunk of that 30-45% assigned to commissions, then when you buy the higher priced products you are effectively paying for the commissions of others.

However, some people really enjoy being in the network marketing industry, and they like the people and team aspect of growing a business with other people and building those relationships. Is this the right essential oils business opportunity for you?

But if you LOVE the oils from Young Living or DoTERRA you can still build a blog and promote their products using their product links to complement your MLM business.  You’ll need a website for this. Running a blog around essential oils can be a vehicle to drive massive sales online for this business model for sure.

Open an Online Store

This is another approach where you get to sell your own oils online. The easiest way is to buy the essential oils by white-labeling (refer below) at wholesale from an oil producer then sell online. Or if you’re really keen you could even make the oils at home.

Building an online store is simple enough and exciting to do. You can use platforms like Shopify or WordPress to help you build an eCommerce site.

how to make money with essential oils online store ecommerce

If you want to learn how to start selling essential oils from your own online store, read on. Anyone with a computer can start in a matter of hours without special skills.

The three main things you need to start is:

  1. A domain name (this will be the name of your online store/business name I.e
  2. A web hosting account (this is like the home where your website lives on the internet)
  3. Your undivided attention for 60 minutes.

Yes, it is that simple to set up an online shop.

You can set up your own online store with WordPress in around 30 minutes and the tutorial below will walk you through each step of the process.

In the tutorial, it covers how to:

  • Choose and Customize Your Theme

Video Tutorial

This video covers all the steps I’ve listed so you can start building your website and get it up and running. However, it does not cover how to get traffic to your website or customers to your products. If you prefer the affiliate marketing option, no worries! you can still use the same steps to startup a blog ready to earn money with affiliate marketing.

Remember a website without traffic is like a signpost in the desert! So if you would like to learn how to do all of this easily AND get traffic to your website and sales of your products, I recommend going to the Wealthy Affiliate training and mentoring community. They have all the tools, training, resources for beginners and people who are just getting started with online selling and also teach you exactly how to get traffic to your website.

White Labelling and reselling on marketplaces like Amazon, eBay and Etsy

White-label products and services are re-brandable, re-sellable items that are produced by one company to be rebranded and resold by someone else e.g. you. “Private label” and “white-label” means the same thing. So in the case of essential oils you would contact a wholesaler of essential oils, then create your own “brand” by labelling them as your own. So the wholesaler creates the oils and provide the bottles, but you can send them your own labelling and bottles if you wish, and market them as your own.

how to make money with essential oils white labelling

Then how you market them is up to you

A big advantage over network marketing is you’re not paying for grossly overpriced oils so not padding someone else’s upline. Instead you’re buying them at wholesale but you do have the risk of carrying inventory. Also you need to consider are they the best essential oils on the market and what about product liability issues?

You may not be aware, but loads of brands for commonly known products are already do this. Did you know you can white label software, coffee, clothing, even whiskey? Yup. Starbucks is an example of a company that white-labels their coffee products for Costco to relabel under the Kirkland brand to then sell to end consumers (or businesses, whatever you use your Costco membership for, no judgments here).

The key point here is that you too can do the same thing with essential oils. Buy at low-cost from the wholesaler, then package as your own, finally resell them under your own brand. You could sell them from your home, at a mall or market stand, or even on your own website.

You can also sell them on online marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay and Etsy. Note that depending on the company you wholesale from, some allow and will ship directly to Amazon etc and some won’t. For example Plant Therapy is quite a reputable essential oils company and it does not allow resellers to sell on marketplaces including (but not limited to) Amazon, EBay, Etsy, etc.

If you do choose an essential oil white-labeller that allows reselling on Amazon etc, then you should note that this is EXTREMELY difficult to do UNLESS, you are already selling other products on Amazon. If your goal is to sell essential oils on Amazon, it’s recommended to contact the folks at Amazon FIRST and make sure that you can sell your product on Amazon and also find out all the details that you need to pass on to the wholesaler, like special label requirements, bar codes, special packing requirements, etc.

But selling by AMAZON FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) is possible if you are prepared to jump through those hoops.

With Amazon FBA, you may not know it, but a lot of what you buy on Amazon is not actually sold by “Amazon” the company. Some products are sold by individual people who ship their products to Amazon, then Amazon distributes the products for them.

Amazon is playing the go-between role. Sellers provide their warehouses with products. Amazon offers the storage space, the transaction systems, the website maintenance and security, and an enormous network of shipping channels to get products to customers as quickly as possible.

how to make money with essential oils Amazon FBA or Etsy

For you being a seller and a business, your goal is to ensure that you purchase your product at a low enough price that you can resell it on Amazon and still make a profit after fees, taxes, and other related costs.

Competition is a big issue, since there’s already a lot of products listed there, but competition just means that people are making money, so it could be a healthy market to be in!

Similar to Amazon, you could use eBay or Etsy to sell your product. Both are well-known sites, with regular shoppers. Again, you have to take into account shipping costs and listing fees and, but working through those details will be part of a more specific and detailed business plan.

In considering how to make money with essential oils, some key factors to be aware of with white-labelling and Amazon FBA are:

  • That you’d need to stay on top of the product
  • Know what all the features and benefits are etc.
  • Because of the nature of essential oils, you’d need product liability insurance.
    • For example, if one of your customers use a citrus oil they purchased from you and they go outside and get a severe sunburn because of the oil, they may go after you as the seller.
  • Competition!
    • White label supplier could even be your competition, especially if they sell to the same type of customer.
    • Amazon could even compete against you on your own listing with the same product, but unbranded from Amazon. Does Amazon really care about you?
  • How long will the Amazon wave last for?
    • Amazon is sort of like a drug, a drug that can get you quick sales in a short period but making you addicted and dependent on their marketplace.
    • Proceed with caution, think long term, and direct some of your time and focus into your own branded website.
    • EBay is already pretty saturated with cheap products. Is Amazon headed the same way?

For these risks, it’s not my cup of tea, too many risks and headaches for my liking. Let’s look at my favorite option.

Affiliate Marketing – Build a Niche Website (Blog)

Did you know Affiliate Marketing is the world’s most untapped source for generating passive income? Affiliate Marketing is a huge and growing industry. It’s what I do professionally, and part of the reason I’m so thrilled about affiliate marketing opportunities in the essential oils industry is that I can actually show you how to make money doing this. Also there’s a training platform I’m part of that is the best training and mentoring community you’ll find online for building your successful affiliate marketing business. It includes training courses available that can show you step by step how to build a business about any passion you choose.

Do you want to learn about how YOU can make money? I’ll show you the specific details of how to build your business below in this article, but first let me explain the basics in case you’ve never heard of affiliate marketing.

In simple terms, affiliate marketing is just recommending someone else’s product or service in a way that earns you a commission. In other words, when you help another company generate sales, you get a slice!

So being an affiliate marketer essentially means that you’re a freelance advertiser. Many of your favorite essential oil companies have free programs you can sign up for to help them advertise online, and the best part is you get paid for every sale you make.

Look below for just 2 examples of the many more that you can find online and join for FREE. That’s right – there’s no membership fees or required purchases to be an affiliate!

How To Make Money With Essential oils Affiliate Marketing

example 1

example 2

How much you will get paid depends on what you promote, but most companies pay between 9-30% and some even 40% of the sale price. Other popular affiliate programs include Plant Therapy, Jade Bloom (15%), Dharmaceuticals (15-40%) and Essential Oils Academy (25%) just to name a few.

The MLM model requires you to have minimum monthly spend and also to have products that you sell to others as stock in your home. With affiliate marketing you don’t have any of that hassle!

The cool thing about this type of business is that you don’t have to do a lot of stuff that traditional business owners and eCommerce sites have to deal with. You don’t have to:

  • keep any inventory
  • purchase wholesale products
  • worry about credit cards or secure purchases
  • do customer service at all
  • deal with return, refunds, or unhappy customers

All of that stuff goes through the seller. You are only responsible for advertising. You should only work with brands you know have a good reputation. Then all you need to do is provide a link to a product on your website and the sellers brand does the hard work for you. Then you simply need to do is focus on getting people to the seller’s website.

There are various ways to do this, but the easiest, cheapest, and the most enjoyable way to do it is by creating a website. Website creation is easy these days, and there are many easy to use website builders out there that you can use to create an attractive looking website to promote products for the companies you work with. Creating an affiliate website has a much smaller cost than you would have with setting up an eCommerce store (and without all those headaches!).

When people click the tracking affiliate links on your website and purchase products from the seller, you get commission! There are more ways to make money from your website (shown below), but this is the basics of how make money through affiliate marketing by partnering with essential oils companies.

Using a website to earn income is just so exciting because your website is online 24/7/365 and accessible to the entire world! People could be reading your posts and buying online through your affiliate links at any time of the day, all over the world. When was the last time you saw a local shop that was open all day and all night and could sell to customers in London, Singapore and Boston all at the same time?

Reaching Out To Essential Oil Buyers With A Website

As I mentioned earlier, the BEST way to reach your customers is by having a website. Whatever business model you choose, no matter how you look at it, there are more people on the internet than people you know personally. Yes over 4 billion people online out there.

So if you want more buyers, then you need to reach out to people online and get them interested in whatever it is you are promoting or selling. I’ll discuss the details of how to reach those people in the next section.

To reach the entire world (or at least the entire English-speaking world), then its best to pick a regular .com domain name. Dot coms are perfect for affiliate marketing (what I do) and rank best on search engines. There are more than 4 billion people online and each one is a potential customer for you. Better still, with the growing population of the world, more and more people are getting internet access every day.

If you are promoting a product that only delivers within the borders of your own country – that’s OK. You can buy a domain name with the specific extension matching your country. For example, instead of, you can select,,, or This could work for you if you want to create a blog promoting the product links for your MLM company doTERRA or Young Living which often have country specific product affiliate links rather than global affiliate links. But can you see how limiting that is compared to a global market?

If creating a website sounds a bit daunting to you, don’t worry. The technology has advanced so much in recent years that it is a simple process now. There are tons of different website builders out there. These can give you a ready-made website in minutes, and allow you to easily customize the website to how you want it to look. You can add templates, videos, images, landing pages, and apps with a few clicks to give you a very professional and attractive website.

How To Make Money With Essential oils

Most people surfing the internet don’t really care how good-looking your website is, they surf the web to read and gather information from them!

The most important thing on your website will definitely be the articles you publish on it. This is what ‘blogging’ is all about.

Years ago, blogging was like a personal online diary, but now blogs are businesses.

Running a blog around essential oils can be a vehicle to drive sales online for any of the business models we discussed above. So whether you choose network marketing selling/recruiting, driving sales to your online store, white label reselling, or affiliate marketing – your website is your gateway to the world.

How To Get People To Your Website

Getting your website up and looking nice is the easy bit, the hard bit is to get visitors (traffic) to your website and buy your oils.

The key is to get on the first page and preferably in the top three in Google, and as a .com business owner you are competing with the big players of the global market.

The great news is that most online business owners have no idea how to actually rank on page one, but I do. I’ve got years of experience, and I can show you how I do it. I’ll simplify the process a bit so you can easily follow along, but if you want to learn more details on how to rank on page one and get free traffic to your website go ahead and contact me.

The secret to selling essential oils online is keyword research

Using a few online tools that you can access and learn also, you can actually take advantage of Google’s data and find out what people search for every day. I can see if there are a lot of people searching for something, or just a few people. I can also see how many competing websites there are, and whether the competition is easy or hard.

For example, I know that there are 615 people searching for the term “essential oils for wrinkles” every month, and that there are around 100 websites competing for this phrase. That’s a quite a few, considering there are only 10 spots on Google page one!

Let’s dive in further and say you’re promoting Young Living essential oils for example. By simply typing in other keyword phrases like “Young Living essential oils for headaches”, shows there are only 8 competing websites for that search term. Awesome…only 8 websites in the entire world! I could definitely outrank them. If I can get my website to page one for that phrase, then a total of 80 people will reach my website every day and consider purchasing something.

Can you reach out to 80 people every day, 365 days a year? No way! So whether you choose old school network marketing, your own online store or affiliate marketing, think of how many people you can reach passively. The power of having a website and being able to rank it in search engines can give you access to the world 24/7.

When doing my quick searching above, I came across really great article ideas and niche site ideas here too. There are tons of people searching for “Young Living essential oils for autism”, “acne”, “psoriasis” and even “for dogs”, 96 people looking “for dogs”. Does that give you some ideas?

However, not every page on our website will rank initially, but over time, if you consistently post articles on low competition topics, then you increase your website authority on the topic and start generating more traffic. The traffic is cumulative and as you publish more content, your traffic and website authority grows. I have some websites that get over 1,000 visits per month.

That’s 1,000 potential clients every month and growing for my business.

How To Make Money With Essential oils Keyword Research Essential Oils For Wrinkles

The topics you can write about on your website about essential oils are limitless, for example “essential oils for cats” or even “how to make your own cleaning products with essential oils”. You could also write about “how to make essential oils at home” or “natural remedies for anxiety”. and the list goes on.

Here’s more search results from typing in search “which essential oils do what”:

How To Make Money With Essential oils Keyword Research Which Essential Oils Do What

This means that you have real chances to have you articles on the first page of Google and gain the free traffic and the earnings from this simple research of keywords.

So if essential oils are a true passion of yours, or you enjoy researching this topic and writing about what you learn, then there are literally thousands of things to write about.

For even more traffic, you can create video’s for your YouTube channel and load them on your website. People love show and tells. Take an idea like showing people how to make homemade cleaning products from essential oils, make a video and add it to your blog for example.

4 Simple Ways To Make Money From Your Website

There are so many ways to make money online, it’s insane. But I don’t want to overwhelm you with information, so I’ll just cover 4 basic ways here. If you decide to create your essential oils business from a website, you’ll learn even more ways as you get ideas from other websites, social media or talk to people in the training and mentoring community i’m part of.

Affiliate Marketing

This is the most lucrative way to me because you can make regular commissions depending on what you promote and once setup those commissions become passive income. How this works is that you promote a product on your website, people click your link then these buyers purchase it from a different website. You simply say, “I recommend ______ product” and link to the seller’s website (through your affiliate link).

With essential oils there are hundreds of different types you could easily recommend with all their benefits. But not only that, you could recommend things like essential oil blends, different oil brands, diffusers, related essential oil products, books on how to use oils effectively, online meditation videos, and even courses on how to use the oils effectively Thinking broader you could also recommend related items like massage tools, hot and cold packs, other things you use in tandem with oils, even other natural remedies that you find online. The opportunities have no limits!

Affiliate marketing is the channel through which bloggers get connected to a brand and, simply promotes its products or services to earn commissions. Once you have your website going, You can use affiliate links in many ways – on social media, on your blog, YouTube, emails etc.

How To Make Money With Essential oils Affiliate Marketing and Display Ads

Display Ads

When you’re getting regular traffic to your website, you have this second main way to make money. Bloggers sign up to Ad networks and earn a share of what advertisers pay as revenue by displaying targeted Ads on their blogs. This is where Google, Mediavine, or similar companies will give you some code to place on your website. Then, ads are displayed automatically when a visitor lands on your site.

You don’t have to do any advertising content at all. All you do is get traffic to your website and you get paid!

You are paid per click or per impression for your ads. Payments mailed to you as a check, or done through direct bank deposit.

Sponsored Content

Sponsored content is any type of content that you create that someone else pays you to post to benefit them. This can be a sponsored blog post, a YouTube video, a Facebook post and even something as simple as a tweet – or series of tweets. Payment of this type of content varies – by assignment, by the size of the influencers following, and length of the content.

As your traffic and website authority grows, you may find that some companies are willing to pay you to write an article about their product on your website. Usually you need proof of traffic and a large amount of followers on social media, so this can be an option for later in your business. It’s also important to be aware that all paid content is marked as ‘sponsored’ so your readers know that you’ve been paid to write about a product.

Start Making Money Online!

Selling Your Website

An extra option, after your website is getting traffic and earning money, you can actually sell it on a website marketplace! Do you know how much money you can get for selling a website these days?

When your website is generating income, as a rule of thumb you multiply your website’s monthly revenue by 30. Meaning if your site is making $1,000 a month 1,000 x 30 = $30,000!

How long does it take to earn money?

This is a hаrd quеѕtіоn to аnѕwеr bесаuѕе іt’ѕ dіffеrеnt for everyone . There isn’t a simple and definite timeline to earning money with any business, traditional or online. With an online business, the key to truly understanding where revenue comes from is to know it comes from TRAFFIC. So the better question one should be asking is “How long before I start getting consistent traffic?”.

Some people see earnings in just a few months. Others take more than a year. This really depends on how much time you spend daily on the activities to grow your business. Creating content, building traffic and with consistent traffic comes real revenue. Give yourself time to succeed, you deserve it.

How much money can I earn?

Consider this question – Do people buy stuff online? If there are people buying stuff online, then there is an opportunity for you to promote those very same products and services to them.

So you can earn money. How much? It depends. It all depends on how hard you are prepared to work at it, but the coolest part is the sky’s the limit! There аrе bіllіоnѕ of dоllаrѕ bеіng spent оnlіnе every dау. All you need to do is find a small slice of that huge pie and you can be making really good money.

The truth is, YOU write your own paycheck with your online business. So the answer is, as much as you are willing to work for. Some people have businesses that earn a nice $30,000-$70,000 per year. Others grow to six figures and beyond. People that work really hard have multi-million dollar internet businesses.

Steady on. Wait a minute. Before you make a million dollars, let’s begin with the first step – creating your free Wealthy Affiliate account and starting your free website! Then work hard and keep learning! If уоu want tо make іt online, then you have thе bеѕt possible chance right hеrе!


So do you now understand how to make money with essential oils? From the many ways that you can earn money from an essential oils business, which particular essential oils business opportunity interests you most?

Do you have any questions do you have for me? Feel free to leave a comment or question in the comments section at the end of this article. I love hearing your stories and insights and look forward to hearing from you. I’m happy to help!

32 thoughts on “How To Make Money With Essential Oils”

  1. Another great article that is really focused on my needs! I Own an Etsy store and can vouch for how great it is to start selling products or hand made items online. Also, Etsy do a hell of a lot to help you with your success. I too recommend it.  

    I am incredibly impressed by the level of detail and research you have put into this insightful article, on making money online by selling essential oils. Another thing I am really enjoying about your site, is that you make things seem so achievable for the average person to try. 

    Essential oils is a big industry, I would agree. In this day and age you would be surprised at how many people are turning to natural and alternate methods of healing or self help. One thing I have learned here is the details on Amazon, you know I never actually thought about using this as a platform to make money online. I often do buy oils from there though! The penny has dropped. 

    Thank you for giving very diverse articles that can appeal to a number of people, also those who can enter a non-typical niche. Good job.

  2. These are two of my favorite topics online, making money and essential oils, so this post is right up my alley, thank you. An anticipated 10 billion dollar growth in the industry over 5 years is eye opening. Finding a niche within the essential oils industry really has me thinking. Some, myself even, might consider essential oils a niche of its own, so the thought of breaking it down even further is intriguing. I like the growth chart for essential oils vs. natural remedies, and that traffic at over 9,000 is simply amazing! MLM honestly aren’t for me so I might be considering the affiliate marketing and online stores outlets. I have bookmarked your page and I will following your links. Thank you again!

  3. Hi John,

    What an amazingly detailed site about how to make money with essential oils, I didn’t realize how healthy they are. You go into great detail on the options available on how best to go about setting up a business selling essential oils. I notice that you wrote about using the MLM option, personally I believe that few people that do MLM make any significant money from their efforts. I like your idea of selling your own label essential oils, buying from a reputable wholesaler and getting your own labels on sounds like a good way to sell the product. However the question is where is the best place to sell your own label products,? Amazon maybe, they have some very strict rules around selling product on their platform, having said that I read somewhere that 50% of all online sales are done through Amazon, worth thinking about. Building your own website sounds like the best idea to me, especially if you can write enough keyword rich content, thats where a good Keyword tool like Jaxxy comes in. Finding keywords that will rank on the first page of Google is everybody’s  dream. 

    Which way to market has worked best for you?

    all the best


  4. I think that when people really buckle down and research the essential oils industry, they’re in for a pleasant surprise here. The fact you have visual evidence on the number of essential oil searches, plus its recent trend, shows that people are interested in this niche and are looking to purchase the products.

    For those looking to get into the essential oils industry, down-niching to something that is within the industry will breakdown the competition, always a good move. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested and it’s becoming a gold mine.

  5. This is really a fabulous post. I was really focused on everything you were saying. I was interested in the whole essential oils topic, as I am always looking for ways to help alleviate pain. 

    The breakdown of your article showing your pictures and how wealthy affiliate helps anyone do this, is something I haven’t seen before. It sounds really exciting to be a part of starting your own business. Building your own website is really something I find extra exciting, so I will be checking this out.

  6. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Fintan.
    Yes I have learned how healthy they are too – just scratching the surface, but I’ve been a happy consumer for almost 1 year.  So far I realise how potent, pure essential oils have so many healthy benefits.  How about you have you tried essential oils?

    You ask a great question, which market worked best for me?
    I don’t sell oils myself but I’m a very happy consumer – I mainly know how to build websites and market products and help others to do the same.  I love researching keywords and niche’s/passions to help other people and rarely do I find a topic, the essential oils business opportunity, as exciting and full of potential as this one.

    So any of the four main models could work for you or anyone.  The key is having a website, whether you choose to promote on Amazon (which has a few headaches and risks), its best to direct some of your time and focus into your own branded website.  I’m glad you agree that building your own branded website is the way to go.  It supports all main models, even MLM.  If you love Young Living or DoTERRA or any of the CBD oils out there, you can promote their products there, just like any affiliate links (you just need to check they work in the countries you’re trying to target and for compliance with those MLM companies).  But if you’re moving product, that’s got to be good.

    Personally, I like affiliate marketing because it allows you to sell the oils without buying inventory, no hassles, stress of recruiting or “selling” to people.  Building a website is relatively simple these days. The challenging part is writing consistent content to reach out to an audience and get traffic.  But if its your passion, then its fun!

  7. Thanks for your positive comments.
    We have a lot in common with our favourite topics.  I agree, you’ve quickly picked up how lucrative the essential oils business opportunity is.  There are tons of niche’s to get stuck into here.  Just think of how types of people and how many uses there are for essential oils.  The key is what type of people are you trying to help?
    I have a whole section on this and loads of niche ideas throughout the article.

    I’m glad you’re excited by the opportunity and feel free to let me know what option you select to help others and make money selling essential oils.  Also please reach out if you need any help!

  8. Hey Kae, Thanks so much for your kind words!
    I’m glad you liked the article and its positive comments like your’s that make it a pleasure for me to research and write articles to help people with the many options in the essential oils industry.

    Thanks also for sharing your experience on Etsy.  My friend recently opened one of these, similar to you to sell products and hand made items for this husband and wife team.  They seem like a friendly platform and great to learn from you that they are very helpful too.  My friend really struggled with getting customers, he was messaging a lot of family and friends (me too!). That’s why having your own website is so important, it compliments your Etsy store, gives you traffic.  That’s got to be better than just asking people individually.

    Yes Amazon is the big platform, sounds like some exciting ideas and opportunity for you Kae.  I’m glad to have helped.  Wishing you success online.

  9. Thanks for giving me the idea. I am already in this platform for quite a few days. And besides my training, I am also doing research on how to find the perfect niche for my website. So I got the idea from your article. It’s helpful for me. I am still learning. Thanks again for providing detailed information on how online marketing actually works. 

  10. Thanks for chiming in Coralie,
    I’m glad you enjoyed my article, it was long so you have a long attention span.
    So your issue of how to alleviate pain and ways to do this is actually a really good niche.  Do you realise there are so many people that are in the same boat?  So many have body aches and pains, went better health, so just think of how many people you could help.  The essential oils business opportunity and helping others is exciting, I wish you every success and feel free to reach out if you need help.

  11. Hi Fahim,  I’m so glad to have helped.
    It sounds like the perfect timing for you as you’re doing research on how to find the perfect niche. 
    Well if you’re interested in how to make money selling essential oils and love helping people, then there are loads of niche ideas here.  But the key here (and beauty really) is you get to start an online business about YOU.  Whatever passion, niche, topic that you choose and gets you excited.

    I wish you success online and glad to have helped.

  12. Thanks Todd for your insights.
    Yes the industry is huge, the opportunities are endless.  Your advice is potent – to “down-niche” or choose a specific niche or type of people that you are trying to help.  That’s the key, for anyones focus, in setting up their website and following this exciting journey towards the gold mine.

  13. Hi John,

    I am a stay at home mum and I have been looking on the net to find ways to market essential oil online, and I am glad I stumbled upon your article.

    I really love the way you broke down everything on how to get started building a business around essential oil.

    I don’t think the idea of networking/MLM will not work for me at all, as I have tried it in the past on a different product though, and it didn’t really yield any positive result for me.

    So I am so thrilled to learn of affiliate marketing, I love everything you explained about how it works, especially how to be able to build my own website and write content with the low competition keywords to get traffic.

    Everything sounds really doable, and I believe it’s something I can invest my time and effort doing.

    I can’t believe there so many people out there really are searching for different things about the essential oils, it’s really amazing, and it’s given me the confidence that this will work out for me.

    I will definitely check out your online platform and connect with you and your friends, cause I would need all the help I can get, as I get started.

    Thanks so much for this article.

  14. Hey Queen, Thanks so much for your kind words!
    I’m glad you liked the article and its positive comments like your’s that make it a pleasure for me to research and write articles to help people with the many options in the essential oils industry.
    As a stay at home mum, its so exciting for you and sure the affiliate marketing is an exciting way to make money selling essential oils while helping so many people.

    Sure, I’m happy to help you, feel free to reach out once you get started on your exciting venture.

  15. Hi John,

    You have included an amazing amount of information on starting a business.  I’m going to have to read through your article a couple of times to absorb everything.  

    I have a friend who has asked me to help him sell carved fishing lures that he makes.  It sounded like a fun challenge, but l had no idea where to begin.  

    Not any more!  You’ve given me some great ideas on how to put together an online shop for him, and how to manage everything.  I especially appreciate the video you included on how to start an online store.  Since you explained white label products, I’m also wondering if we could find other types of lures and other related items to include in my friends store?  I’m glad I found you…thanks!

  16. Hey Nancy, I’m so glad to have helped!

    Better still it has given you ideas to help your friend with his fishing lures, what a great niche for him.

    Yes the video on setting up your own online store is super helpful, go ahead and share the article to help him.

    White-labelling lures and other related items, sure it can be done.  It just takes some time to do some research to find those wholesalers, crunch your numbers, then promote on your fiends store/website.  Exciting time!

  17. Hi John, thank you for an amazing article on how to make money with essential oils. I honestly, had no idea how large this market was until I read this article! Your article has given me much to think about.

    I am sending your article link to a friend on mine as she dabbles in essential oils and I know would love to grow that into a business from home. Your various option for selling essential oils will be very helpful to her.

    Personally, having spent many years in MLM these days I am not a big fan of MLM. However, your option of affiliate marketing, in my opinion, is the best option for anyone looking to start an online business as this truly is a win-win situation for all from the vendor to the affiliate marketer to the consumer. I love win-win situations!

    Thank you again for sharing a great article… keep up the good work!

  18. Hi Moni, Thank you so much for your kind words.
    I’m glad you liked the article and its positive comments like your’s that make it a pleasure for me to research and write articles to help people with the many options in the essential oils industry.
    Yes feel free to share the article as a way to help your friend, if she’s interested in how to make money with essential oils, there are many ways to do this. I’m excited for her and happy to help in any way further.
    Wishing you both online success, John

  19. What an awesome job you have done at breaking down how we can make money online with essential oils. I really can say that you’ve missed anything, I wish I could ask a question but you have covered so much I don’t have any! These are my favourite types of articles to read because there is so much information available on any given topic that when articles are well researched and well written like this one, you don’t feel the need to go anywhere else. 

    I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future, great work 🙂

  20. John,

    Interesting that essential oils are moving up the ladder that fast with sales.  I do believe that all affiliate marketing niches are going to increase over time due to the number of people using the internet.  More and more people daily are enjoying the use of the internet for shopping and finding remedies to their problems.  It can be in any area that you can think of that is for sure.

    Affiliate Marketing has always been of interest to me the only problem was finding a place to learn exactly what and how to do to open my own online business.  The place you recommend is the best that I have ever found and I will continue to grow my business thanks to the great community of experts.

    Thank you for all the information,


  21. Thanks Jade,
    Its compliments like yours that make a bog writers research, writing and striving for perfection = just all worth it.  Thanks for your kind words and I look forward to providing more quality content like this one.  Here’s my most recent review that you might find interesting too.  I value the highest quality essential oils so am a customer member of Young Living, you can check out my review here.
    Wishing you online success, john

  22. Thanks Susan, I’m glad you learned a few things about the sales, growing industry and many ways of how to make money with essential oils.  I think you summarise it nicely by also recommending the community that we are both learning and growing in.  
    As you say, More and more people daily are enjoying the use of the internet for shopping and finding remedies to their problems.  But we must remember that a website without traffic is like a signpost in the desert! So if you would like to learn how to do all of this easily AND get traffic to your website and sales of your products, I recommend along with Susan to check out the Wealthy Affiliate training and mentoring community. They have all the tools, training, resources for beginners and people who are just getting started with online selling and also teach you exactly how to get traffic to your website.
    Wishing you success online also, John

  23. Hi John! 

    Great post. I have been reading a lot lately about how the essential oils market is growing and that it is a great opportunity to earn money from, but I didn’t know it was that big, those numbers at the beginning really surprised me. Sadly, I cannot see the statistic from the third paragraph 🙁

    But you provided a lot of information besides that one. All the data and facts you provided assured me that it is actually a good idea to start working in the essential oils business. 

    From all the different ways you suggested to earn money from essential oils, I think I would go with building my own niche website, as I have been already working with other blogs and I have been learning a lot about affiliate marketing. But all these different methods seem to be very effective, when you work hard and are persistent, and people would choose what fits better for them. And you also explained every single one of them with all the information needed to begin. 



  24. This was a very informative post on breaking into the essential oil market! 

    I have recently joined the Wealthy Affiliate community and have become a premium member about almost a month ago, and I have been trying to decide on a niche. 

    The health and wellness niche is one that I am highly considering, but it is also a very large and much acquired niche as well. I feel as if this post was extremely helpful in aiding me to make a decision on entering this particular niche, and it also broke down the much needed steps to break into this niche to, so thank you for that!

    I will be doing some more searching on what niche to choose because I truly want to work from home and become financially free.
    God Bless!

  25. John, your article was a good read and provided a wealth of useful information. I first thought that the field of essential oils would also include CBD Oils. It was a surprise to find that the market for essential oils was huge and that didn’t have anything to do with CBD. 

    You very clearly fulfilled the objective of your article teaching people how they can make money in the Essential Oil business in multiple of ways. I also have experience in MLM and can agree with you that the Affiliate Marketing model is the better one for me.

    Your tutorial on how to go about setting up an Affiliate Marketing business was something that really interested me. The steps you provided were logical and proven. Wealthy Affiliate is definitely something I should look into. From the links and information you shared it appeared like a great platform to build an Affiliate Marketing business.

    Thanks for writing this article John.


  26. I buy essential oils for simple home remedy. I also make balms and salves, use it for aromatherapy and diffuse it to set a mood. I buy it from online shopping apps ranging from different brands. My favorite brands are Plant Therapy, Young Living and NOW.

    Introducing EOs for online business is doable here especially when it goes down to your  suggestion of white labeling. There are only limited brands of EOs in our country and setting up your own brand will be easy. What’s hard on the process is to find trustworthy manufacturers. I had an experience before of buying a different brand and I’m pretty sure it was white labeled, the packaging says it all. It has a synthetic smell which you cannot find from leading Essential Oil companies.

    It is still possible to do Affiliate Marketing with Essential Oils especially if you’re already a member of an affiliate company.  Time management is the key and of course, hard work. It’s my personal choice not to try MLM because of the small network I have amd limited acquaintances who are interested with the product. This has been an interesting article of incorporating different online marketing with essential oils. thanks a lot, I learned so much

  27. Hello John, This note is a reply for feedback.
    I like your website. You write with emotion and the feeling transfers well through your words. To me you connect well with the reader. Your website is chockful of interesting information, but I am not sure what it is you are promoting.

    Personally that did not matter as I was just enjoying the discussion. I became personally interested when your skill set and achievements were discussed. You sound to me like you are, or certainly should be a business coach. If you are not promoting yourself, maybe you should. Maybe I could work with you and get some help. If you keep writing like this and focus on what you do, you could build a solid following.
    Good luck. Cheers.

  28. Hi MissusB,
    Thanks for your comments and sharing your experiences.  That really helps our readers, so thanks for sharing your experiences on white-labelling. You’ve tried some quality oils so when you try a lower quality one, you’ve noticed a plastic synthetic smell.  That’s quite scary with while labelling, you really need to know where the oils come from. I cover the different grades of essential oils in this post.

    You’re quite right that doing affiliate marketing with Essential Oils is potentially a great opportunity.   I have the most experience with affiliate sales and learned everything from the best training platform and mentoring community online, Here you too can learn how to do what I do inside this training community and I’ll help you do it.
    I’d be happy to help you as you look seriously into this program. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] and I’d be happy to assist you in any way further
    Regards John 

  29. Hey John,
    Thank for your kind words! I really appreciate your feedback.

    Regards John

  30. Hi Mariana!
    Thanks so much for your kind words.
    Yes the essential oils market is huge, the third paragraph was quoting from Statistica: The total market value of essential oils sales worldwide is anticipated to grow from around 17 billion U.S. dollars in 2017 to about 27 billion dollars by 2022.  The link works for me on Chrome and Safari, perhaps you can try googling those stats is link still doesn’t work.  I setup free account with Statistica for their very interesting statistics on any number of industries and stats.

    I’m glad you analysed all the different ways on how to make money with essential oils, and that building your own niche website is the best fit for you.  That’s great you’re learning about affiliate marketing and the Essential Oils niche is potentially a great oppotunity.   I have the most experience with affiliate sales and learned everything from the best training platform and mentoring community online, Here you too can learn how to do what I do inside this training community.  Feel free to check it out and I’ll be happy to help you do it.
    Wishing you online success,  John

  31. Thanks so much Randi,

    When I read comments like yours it really inspires me.  You’re at the very exciting stage of choosing a niche.  The essential oils niche is an amazing opportunity, providing you have passion for it.  That’s one of the most important factors, you may like to consider this post for more guidance on choosing the right niche for you.

  32. Thanks Edwin,
    That’s so interesting that you seem to know so much more about CBD oils that essential oils.  I think that’s because there are so many MLM’s promoting CBD oil.  Perhaps I should do a review there also.
    I’m really glad you like the review and wish you success on your affiliate marketing journey.
    Wishing you online success, John
