There are many network marketing/MLM distributors entering the social media or online world to promote their products. As you probably know the health and wellness movement is booming and one of the most popular companies is Young Living. You can see their name on Facebook, YouTube videos and also blogs. So the Young Living brand is really leveraging the internet for more exposure and expanding far beyond the traditional face-to-face approaches.

In a way, yes and this is made possible with smart usage of your referral links online.

The essential oils industry is booming and growing rapidly worldwide. 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.

Young Living is the world’s “leading essential oil company” and probably the most well-known essential oils company with over $1.5 Billion in annual sales. According to Young Living they are the world leader in essential oils, with their strict Seed to Seal® process that produces pure essential oil products for every individual.

Let’s look at some more consumer trends…

Based on the trends for the past 5 years, the “aromatherapy” search term is quite popular year-round and also tends to peak in December.

Highest Quality Pure Essential Oils with Good Quality Assurance

Young Living distillation process

Young Living is well-known as the world’s global leader in producing the best, purest and most authentic Essential Oils. So if you’re going to leverage this booming industry, you may as well partner with the best quality if integrity and purity are important to you and your customers.

I cover the Young Living product quality extensively in my Young Living Review. This includes comprehensive research and analysis of the product quality and particularly the Young Living difference.

Please read this analysis, but if you want to do your own research on any other company’s essential oils you can. Perhaps the most important question to ask is whether the essential oils sold are 100% pure, without chemical fillers, additives or synthetics?

Young Living essential oils are simply a class above, the purest most authentic essential oils.

Professional eCommerce Site that’s Easy for You to Share Referral Links

Unlike other Network Marketing companies, they have a very professional online store setup that is country-specific and you can create country-specific enrollment links or product links. These links are accessible by anyone within the country you choose and easy to add to any social media content or your website.

People and your potential customers have a simple choice in pricing. They can either choose full retail pricing or take advantage of 24% off for wholesale pricing by setting up their own Young Living

How to Make Money with Young Living Young Living Essential Oils Professional eCommerce Site

These links are easy to share, however they are direct to the company. For your direct referral link, you can go to Oily Tools (free version) and then get your free enrollment link from “YL Link Generator” on the left-hand menu. Individual product links for countries are a bit fiddly initially but I’ve worked out how to set them up. Please email me at for any advice or tips you want on setting up your product links. Any of your referral links can be easily shortened for free by using free tools such as

Affordable Starter Kits

Every MLM company will have a starter kit or cost to get started. Young Living starter kits help new members use their products the right way and get the best experience over a range of sample products. They are great kits that range in price from US$45 if you just want to try a few products to the typically $150-$170 with a more complete range of products with bonus diffuser. The most popular Premium Starter Kit includes a home diffuser of your choice, 12 premium essential oils collection, NingXia Red, Thieves Hand Purifier and some resources. That’s a great selection for $165.

Wholesale Membership Advantages

As a Young Living Wholesale Member, you can save 24% with wholesale pricing, qualify for further discounts and rewards program. If you’re interested in further savings, you can also sign up with Essential Rewards (regular orders) to save up to 44% off of retail. These are very attractive for members as customers. Even better you can:

You get a US$25 initial cash bonus for each direct referral that orders a Premium Member Starter Kit, which is a very generous bonus commission for physical products. Also, if they order any more products within their first 3 calendar months, you’ll earn an additional 25% from the value of those purchases. Then there are lucrative monthly commissions for true residual income and tons of other ways to make money with Young Living which I cover fully in this post.

Young Living’s wholesale membership is also flexible in a way that you don’t need to worry about meeting a minimum sales quota, it’s simple referral marketing much like you get other referral credits. For example, I’ve shared my Airbnb link so my friend gets $25 off their first stay (and I get that too). Also, when you refer your friends to take Uber, Uber will reward you with a coupon code.

Low-Cost Business

To qualify for both the $25 initial cash “Start Living Bonus” and 25% commissions for 3 months “Fast Start Bonus” you just need to make personal monthly order of about $50 worth of products (Personal Volume (PV) of 50). This is super easy to do, which may be only 2-3 bottles of essential oil, so people won’t feel the pressure to buy stuff all the time. It’s only 100 PV to get all types of income from Young Living.

My friend shared recently how he affords his Young Living monthly purchases. He stepped outside the square and looked at what he was spending on non Young Living orders. He was spending $50 a week on lotteries and now that money he saves well and truly pays for his month’s supply of Ningxia Red for great overall health. He doesn’t buy takeout coffee or tea and makes his own if he wants one. These two things well and truly give him his PV for the month and it hasn’t cost me anything extra

I also prefer to not spend more, just spend better. I love the concept of exchanging and ditching. From Young Living’s diverse product range the products can be used all throughout a health conscious person’s home, body, and life. So one month the dish washing soap, toothpaste, next month the house cleaner or perfumes, then another month make-up, again another month body soaps, shower gel, shampoo, etc and so on. Reducing all these chemicals and toxins in our homes has an amazing impact on hormones and also simply substitutes your spends. On top of having a better lifestyle, developing friendships and getting wonderful and potentially free products.

You Don’t Have to Recruit Your Family and Friends

How to Make Money With Young Living You Don’t Have to Recruit Your Family and Friends

Does this surprise you?

Did you wonder, can you make money with Young Living without the need to recruit people?

Sure, the more customers and members you have, you can make more money. However, our team doesn’t teach you to recruit your friends and family to make money.

Rather, in our Young Living community, people organize free workshops on topics like happy healthy kids and mums, living a toxic free lifestyle, make your own natural cleaning products etc and showcase the benefits of the essential oils.

Here are some other ideas that work for some in our community:

  • Children’s health
  • Men’s health
  • Hormones talks are popular
  • Emotional healing
  • Questions and answers all about Young Living
  • All about NingXia Red – what is it? Why should I drink it?
  • “Make and Takes” are really fun

Particularly for our community, we don’t try to “close” people or pressure anyone to buy or anything like that.

When you sign up as a “Member” in our community, you will get invited to our private Facebook group, led by our highly qualified Naturopath willing to help you and anyone you know with better health. This is a place to learn everything you need to know about helping people lead a more natural, healthy lifestyle with Young Living’s amazing products. You can be part of this inspired community of like-minded people.

Our Naturopath also runs regular online monthly health challenges. These are a great and easy way to grow your business without “recruiting”, you simply help people who want better health. Recent Detox Challenge and Exercise Challenges have been fun and really popular.

Also, we combine internet marketing with network marketing. Have you ever seen this in the network marketing industry?

In addition to our community, we also build websites, YouTube Channel, Facebook Page, and a funnel to drive traffic and sales. Everything is optional, whatever best suits your needs.

We also provide our customers with more offers along the way. They only buy because they are well-informed, with our Naturopath answering any questions, and then they choose to do so.

Let me know if you are aware of any other MLM teams doing their business like this.

If you’re interested in Young Living Products or Business, I recommend you to get connected with our community because you’ll have a much better head-start than other people and ongoing support in whatever direction you choose and whatever help you need.

The Challenges Ahead

Even though Young Living is very popular and well-known as the world’s global leader in producing the best, purest and most authentic Essential Oils, successfully running a Young Living business is not as easy as a piece of Lavender cake. There are a few factors to be aware of in the industry and marketing strategies to consider first.

Competition in the Essential Oils Industry

Evеrу соmраnу аnd іndіvіduаl ѕеllіng еѕѕеntіаl оіlѕ in thе marketplace tоdау claim tо hаvе thе vеrу “best” аnd mоѕt “рurе” oils аvаіlаblе. How dоеѕ ѕоmеоnе wіthоut any background or knоwlеdgе оf essential oils know which oils are really the best?

Consumers can get confused, so I did an extensive analysis of these issues in my comprehensive review:

What I’ve found from my own research and personal experience is that Young Living is the world leader in essential oils, with their unique and strict Seed to Seal® process that produces pure essential oil products. This means the best, purest and most authentic Essential Oils. They believe in keeping the entire process as “untainted” as possible to ensure their essential oils are as pure and as potent as possible. That’s for you and your health.

If consumers want to do their own research, then perhaps the most important question to ask is whether the essential oils sold from any other company are 100% pure, without chemical fillers, additives or synthetics?

So Young Living are the purest and most authentic oils and this is very important to health conscious people. Given authentic essential oils act the best, they will have a positive effect on your body and mind. If you or your customers don’t experience that with Young Living then feel free to try another brand.

Perceptions of Price and Quality

Compared to other brands there is some confusion of pricing, quality, and value for money.

So when people compare to other brands, Young Living’s products are relatively more expensive when you look only at the price per bottle. But there are a few important perception issues around price and quality to understand here. Let’s look at a sample of Lavender Essential Oils 15ml you can buy online.

Young Living Lavender Essential Oil 15ml

Lavender Essential Oil Price at Young Living

Plant Therapy Lavender Essential Oil 10ml 30ml

Lavender Essential Oil Prices at Plant Therapy (different sizes)

Doterra Lavender Essential Oil 15ml

Lavender Essential Oil Prices at doTERRA

The most important thing to be aware of is that solvent extraction is so common in the industry. Solvents including hexane extraction, hydrocarbon solvents, etc are widely used throughout the industry to extract 2 to 3 times the amount of oil from the plants. But this comes at a cost of these solvents, synthetics, fillers, and impurities remaining in the final product. Really, do you want an essential oil with these chemicals in it? What could those chemicals cocktails be doing to your body?

See my links above for more concerns raised and issues to consider with both DoTERRA and Plant Therapy essential oils.

Standing out from the essential oils industry, Young Living has the strictest the “Seed to Seal” process. Young Living uses a low-pressure and low-temperature steam distillation process as thе оnlу way tо preserve thе bеnеfісіаl properties of thе oils. This рrосеѕѕ іѕ fаr ѕuреrіоr tо thе іnеxреnѕіvе, hіgh-рrеѕѕurе, high-temperature рrасtісе соmmоnlу uѕеd tо distill еѕѕеntіаl оіlѕ іn оthеr соmраnіеѕ AND without the concerning solvents, etc mentioned earlier.

Now that we’ve covered the quality differences, let’s look at the whole picture of pricing, quality and value for money.

How To Make Money With Young Living Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

Looking further at Young Living’s Lavender Essential Oil for example, at a wholesale price of US$24.25 per 15ml bottle (this gets even cheaper with their customer loyalty program). The ONLY ingredient is lavender plants, nothing else. Thаt’ѕ whу Young Living Essential Oils don’t have any expiry date. Pure and natural essential oils do not expire. Lavender is great for relaxation and promoting a restful nights sleep. But even at that price, the Price per Drop is a mere $0.10 and we love to diffuse this oil which lasts around 4-7 hours intermittently with a Young Living diffuser, normally 3-5 drops. So lavender works out at about $0.09 per hour. 

So comparing the price of 15ml bottles alone is incomplete. Given 1 drop of Young Living oils works deeper and lasts longer. If you try this you’ll learn this is really pure lavender. Plus, take into account that not only are you saving money but you are also reaping health benefits! You don’t get that with the cheap stuff. In fact, you may be doing more harm than you think with the cheap stuff!

So yes there are cheaper oils from other retails (with their own affiliate referral programs) and these have good perceptions of quality and brand. Other brands are more price-friendly for the general consumers who are more “price-shoppers” and don’t take the time or interest to understand the quality differences and solvents, synthetics, fillers and impurities remaining in the final product.

So many people are becoming more and more health conscious these days and are concerned about chemicals and want a toxin-free lifestyle. These people are more your target market for Young Living rather than “no-frills” bargain shoppers who buy based on price alone.

Mastering Your Referral Links

The referral link that comes standard with the membership directs people to the Premium Starter Kit sign-up. New members have loads of choices to purchase a starter kit, which range in price from $45 to typically $150-$170 (depending on the products your referrals prefer).

You can create Individual product links but these are a bit fiddly to set up and are country-specific. So this is a bit limiting given they ship to 130+ countries and you can only promote one link at a time for each country. This is a bit of a nuisance. If you’d like to seamlessly promote your referral links in ANY market they operate in for the health and nutrition niche, you can do so with another recommended and top-rated cellular nutrition company.

Feel free to contact me at and I’d be happy to assist you with setting up your country specific product links or a better more global referral link/affiliate marketing approach.

Getting Your Taxes Right

The great thing about home-based businesses is you can get substantial tax write-offs. Sandy Botkin, CPA, Tax Attorney has given some great advice to the direct selling industry and has an awesome book to help you maximize your tax benefits.

For your income, tax identification numbers are optional, but if you receive commissions of more than $600 it is better to submit your Social Security Number (SSN). Without it, a members subsequent commissions will be subject to a 28% tax withholding. Tax requirements vary depending on your country.

Competition From Other Direct Sellers

Like any industry or home-based business, there’s competition. So sure, you’ll see many people doing this Young Living and also DoTERRA essential oils online. There are people in different Facebook groups and plenty on YouTube. The great thing though is there is so much growth in this industry as I covered earlier. So how can you make yourself stand out from the others by doing things differently?

The most important factor is that this market is like a huge and growing pie. Let me show you how you can carve out your niche in this and enjoy a healthy slice of this pie.

How To Make Money Selling Young Living Essential Oils

Connect With a Great Young Living Community

For starter’s you need to get connected with a great community to help you with your health referrals, mentoring and building your business online. I cover how to do this step by step here, so please go ahead and complete that and let me know if you need any help.

If you are already a Young Living member then the following tips can help you as well.

Use Your Essential Oils

You really need to be a product of the product to make genuine and authentic referrals to help others with their health and home needs. You’ll learn about the oils, health products, the house and body products. Most importantly you get your own experiences of how these benefit you all throughout your body, home, and life.

Do you need to know everything? Definitely not!

No one expects you to be an expert. I’m still learning!

Start by learning just a few products and sharing your own product experiences or even testimonials of others with people that you know. As you take every chance to use the Young Living essential oils, you can talk about them with others and be genuine about it.

 Approach it with a giving mindset. Like sharing your experiences rather than “selling” and if they too want to experience the same benefits, sure they can too. You can be happy to help people make informed buying choices.

Why do we start here? You see over 80% of consumers trust recommendations from friends and family more than any other form of advertising. With branded websites being the second-highest form of advertising.

Be sure when sharing your experiences above the wellness line. It’s better not to focus and definitely not make claims on curing sickness or disease prevention. You can find so much to talk about with wellness, beauty, cleaning, cooking and much more.

Sharing your experiences is not selling, rather it is just sharing the experiences having essential oils and other Young Living products in your life. Believe me, people will start asking you about them.

Have gatherings where you talk about Essentials Oils, catch up with people one on one also

This is all about looking for opportunities to share the oils with others.

I discussed many ideas that work really well in our community, with “Make and Takes” being really fun.

Sharing genuine experiences and trying products without obligation is not selling at all.

What to do when you get your first few customers and members?

Just get people to try and smell the oils. Once they are using them they can try all the other ideas here and the online ideas below.

How To Make Money Selling Young Living Online

There are two main ways to promote Young Living Essential Oils and products online – Social Media and your own Website. Let’s discuss both!

Firstly let’s get your main referral link. You can log into your Young Living wholesale member account with your member ID number. This is known as your own Virtual Office. Under the Member Resources tab, you can create the referral link which will be tagged with your unique ID.

Here’s what mine looks like for the USA market, noting that I can change this easily for another target country.

How To Make Money Selling Young Living Online Link Builder

So please go ahead and create your own link.

Young Living allows you to use this link on your website, social media, email, and even advertising. Of all these methods, I highly recommend that you start with a blog early in your Young Living journey because it will give a good foundation for your online presence, more credibility than all the competition and “noise” on social media, and also attract free traffic from the search engines.

You may also want to think about your Niche or ‘Avatar’. Choose a niche within the essential oils and wellness industry – what type of people are you trying to help?

To get you thinking of the possibilities. Just think about how Ideal for single moms and stay at home parents that Young Living can be. Obvіоuѕlу its аlѕо Idеаl fоr hеаlth and wellness рrоfеѕѕіоnаlѕ who want tо еxраnd their сuѕtоmеr bаѕе (уоgа instructors, сhіrорrасtоrѕ, fіtnеѕѕ trаіnеrѕ, gуm оwnеrѕ, nаturораthіс — holistic nutrіtіоnіѕtѕ, hеаlth coaches, еtс.)

These are just some examples of possible Young Living niches for you. Please let me plant the seed for you to think about, how can you help people here in your niche?

But Let’s Cover Social Media First

Networking on social media using Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Snapchat, etc are common. Social media are popular platforms to reach out to people simply because so many people are on them. So it’s what most network marketers use for starters, it’s the common and easiest way to promote Young Living online because it’s duplicatable and simple however it has its limitations. Notably, so many network marketers make the mistake of being “salesy”. Please do not appear like a “human sales billboard” with Young Living all over your profiles, instead I help people to employ Attraction Marketing methods.

Let me touch on a few.

How To Make Money With Young Living Using Social Media

Facebook: Facebook has more than 2.4 Billion users! It is easy to use and you can create a Page linked to your account just for your home-based business. I favor using your Personal Profile rather than Pages initially. Your friends are probably already there so you can start sharing wisely. Facebook Groups are great too.

Instagram: Many users prefer Instagram over Facebook and other social media. Personally, Instagram is not as convenient as Blogging and Facebook because you can’t post from a laptop or desktop. However, Instagram has great engagement and over 1 Billion monthly users. So if you are creative with eye-catching pictures and clever use of #hashtags then Instagram is a great addition.

LinkedIn: Is more professional in nature and allows geo-targeting. It all depends on where your niche or avatar spends time.

Mastering how to build a network marketing business online has its challenges. Know you will not learn everything you need in one sitting, one blog post or one shortcut, it’s a process. So I can help you with this for both “Getting Started” and “Going Professional”. I can also provide separate resources and coaching on these focusing on Facebook and Instagram to show you how to give value, apply Attraction Marketing and increase chances of having people come to you.

To Go Professional My First Choice is to Create a WordPress Blog

Step 1: Setup Your Website

Your blog is the vehicle you use for your content, your hub of operations. It’s an asset that you own, it’s the place where people can always find you and how to contact you. You have more control over your visitors actions – compared to all the distractions to them when they see you on social media. Social media complements blogs so well, think of them as like separate spokes on a wheel and the blog as your hub.

The real beauty of your own blog is you can attract free traffic from search engines. Note that most MLM companies have pre-made websites. Young Living has paid plans for these. You could select a plan and they will take care of the web technicalities, template and hosting for you:

  • MyYL Website is a paid plan “making you the face of Young Living”. It’s like your own little pocket within the Young Living website, but at US$9.95 Monthly and A$6.82 Monthly, etc,
  • YLDist websites cost between US$10 to $15 per month. These are like your own Young Living Rep websites.

I don’t see many people using either of these ready-made options. They are ready-made, so they aren’t bad for those that want to budget for this and want to get a good-looking website up and running quickly.

For individual products and the starter kits, you can use these personal distributor websites created by Young Living. The main drawback is that they can’t be optimized for SEO so how do you get traffic to them? After all, a website without traffic is like a signpost in the desert.

So if you want a solid platform that you can scale, I highly recommend creating a personal WordPress blog. They are great for design/function customization and rank better on the search engines. If you want to see a back end tour of what WordPress looks like, go ahead and create one simply for free using the tool below.

Step 2: Get Traffic to Your Website

How to build your all-important traffic comes from a combination of creating relevant content for your site, what the readers want, and making the reader experience a good one.

Remember your niche, what type of people are you trying to help?

How you help people is through your content. So the next thing to do after setting up a blog is to create content. Some examples include content that is targeted to help people who are interested in aromatherapy but have not tried the Young Living oils yet. This context is relevant because your referral link is best used to get new members to purchase a starter kit.

Your content can be anything that is helpful within the essential oils niche and broader wellness niche, except that;

  1. Don’t just focus only on promoting Young Living products. You’d appear “salesy”, biased and pushy to your online readers.
  2. Don’t splash third-party advertisements all over your blog. They can be distracting and also tend to drive your audience away from your main offers.
  3. Don’t just copy-and-paste the link as is – use it with an anchor text within your content, like the following example:
How to Sign up for a premium starter kit from Young Living link
Young Living enrolment link

Here are just a few content ideas to help engage more with your audience.

Teach people how to use and apply essential oils in their daily lives (some examples depending on your niche):

  • Spicing up your cooking with essential oils
  • Wool dryer balls with a few drops of essential oils to replace the chemical-laden fabric softeners.
  • Turn lemonade from a summer basic to a gourmet beverage by adding Lavender Vitality™ to your ice-cold jug.
  • DIY dish soap and hand soap recipes
  • Making gifts like DIY salt scrubs with energizing peppermint essential oils
  • Making Whipped Body Butter with orange essential oil
  • Making natural remedies like antiseptics, bug repellents, etc
  • Manly uses of essential oils (there are so many for the guys too!)

Show them the benefits of using high-grade vs low-grade essential oil products.

  • More potent, pure, work deeper, last longer, etc
  • Without all the chemicals and nasties

Share your positive experiences frequently.

  • Delicious aromas!
  • Better moods, relaxing moments, focus and concentration, etc
  • Your experiences with energy and stamina
  • Your experiences with daily natural remedies like nasal sprays, antiseptics and getting rid of pet or other odors.
  • Relaxing DIY bath bombs or bath jellies

Show them where they can buy oils online – with the discounted packages or individually.

Create unboxing videos to show people what’s inside a Young Living Premium Starter Kit (you can also place your referral link below in the video description area to help people purchase the same).

Write in-depth product reviews, outlining the pros and cons of specific wellness products, oil types or oil brands.

Share your posts on Pinterest (great for targeting the female audience) and Facebook regularly.

  • Pinterest is a huge opportunity to drive traffic to your blog. Depending on your avatar, you can pin yummy pins to your boards like homemade lavender-blueberry-honey ice cream (bliss!) or homemade toothpaste. Even more powerful is when you blog about your topics and pin them to your and other Pinterest Group Boards. That way you have Google, other search engines and Pinterest all working for you.

Note that most successful business builders with Young Living do a combination of several of these ways to make money with Young Living together – traditional sharing in person, social media and their own website as a hub.

They do what matches their personality, their strong points, their interest, and their niche market.

Another Advantage of Having Your Own Website

Let’s dive in further and say you’re promoting Young Living essential oils for example. By simply typing in other keyword phrases in this simple to use and effective highly recommended keyword research tool 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.

When you compare to traditional face to face sharing and even social media, can you reach out to 80 people every day, 365 days a year? No way! So when choosing whether to focus on old school network marketing, social media promotion or your own WordPress blog, 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 24/7/365.

When doing my quick searching above, I came across some really great article ideas and niche site ideas here too. There are tons of people searching for “Young Living essential oils for acne”, “autism”, “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 2,000 visits per month.

That’s 2,000 potential clients every month and growing for my business.

So, Can You Make Money Selling Young Living Essential Oils?

Conclusion – Is Young Living a Good Online Business Opportunity?

If you are into aromatherapy, wellness and like their products, using the referral link is a great opportunity to make money selling Young Living oils online WITHOUT having to do home parties, recruitment, or physical product demonstrations. You don’t need to build a network if you don’t want to and since it’s your blog, you can monetize your blog using multiple methods.

To be successful with anything in life you really have to apply yourself. So this method won’t work if you aren’t keen to research more about the niche, explore new content ideas and genuinely want to help people with your content. You see you can’t just try to spam everyone with your referral link like so many rookies in MLM have done, particularly on social media.

It doesn’t work that way – especially in the online space. Buyers are now very savvy – they will read reviews and make comparisons before deciding on a purchase. If you don’t understand the behavior of your audience, making money with Young Living, or any other brands for that matter, is going to be a laborious struggle.

With the essential oils industry booming and growing and Young Living having the purest and most authentic essential oils, sure there is a great opportunity. If you choose to go professional with your own blog as your hub of operations, and social media enhancing your blog and traffic even further, I’m here to help if you choose.

I hope this review has shed some light in your mission to start an online business and other ways to make money with Young Living.

  1. That was an amazing read! I have been thinking about starting my own website around essential oils and everything I could possibly need to know how to do that exists within this article.

    I was kinda confused when you started talking about keywords and competition but I guess that I have to take some training to learn how to do all those things.

    Anyway, I’ll check out this Wealthy Affiliate you mentioned to see what it’s about.

    Thank you!

  2. I have tried a lot of Young Living Essential oils mainly for family use. I believe that even though it’s pricey, you know you’ll get the best quality. In fact, my mom uses a drop of  lemon oil to her water because it is safe to drink unlike other essential oils that are only good for topical use. My sister would even dab lavender to pulse areas as her  perfume.

    I haven’t always looked for comparison and review of essential oils. I thought since they are globally known, buyers are getting the best quality compared to oil suppliers that are making their personal brands. I haven’t thought that even expensive and popular oil companies would include solvent extractions into their process leaving impurities in the final product. I was shocked to learn this!

    Not all affordable products are can be considered as high quality, same with expensive ones. That’s why reviews like this are important to be fully aware of what you are buying. Great to know that Young Living follows the Seed to Seal process to ensure that the oils are 100% pure and safe.

    Thank you for giving a lot of suggestions on how to promote Young Living. It’s one of the few companies who are flexible when it comes to marketing and it wouldn’t hard for sellers to choose which option will suit them best.

    • Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with Young Living essential oils.
      i’m glad you got a lot out of my article and really appreciate you sharing some more ideas of how your family is happy using Young Living essential oils.
      I agree fully about the risks of the cheaper alternatives that use solvent extractions and leave impurities in the final products.  Quite shocking when you first learn that!
      And its so reassuring that with the purest most authentic essential oils from Young Living, you are getting exactly that!

  3. Essential oils are fantastic so I’m glad to have come across your post here on Young Living. Honestly I haven’t heard a lot about this product so a post like this is really helpful. What I like about Young Living is that not only does it have a high quality product, it has a high quality website as well. Appealing websites are more attractive to buyers, no matter how redundant that sounds. This is a great product that I will bookmark and share with friends, well done!

    • Thanks so much for your positive comments.
      That’s a good point your raise, the Young Living website for you to use as a member and more importantly for your potential customers to buy from IS very high quality and attractive to buyers.  So if at the front end you also have an attractive blog that helps you audience.  That is a great combination and way for how to make money with Young Living.
      Thanks also for sharing to your friends. Feel free to contact me at and I’d be happy to assist you or your friends in any way further
      Regards John

  4. Hi John,

    Thank you for such an informative article! Your links all worked and it was well written, and the pictures were great. I participated with MLM not too long ago, but I had to take a different direction. For you see, they would become a leader if someone spent more than the leader that month. Does Young Living do that?

    I will say this, that starter kit looks very impressive! I haven’t used my diffuser in six months, and you have me thinking I need to dust it off and get it fired up. Can someone be a customer without being a member?

    Thanks again and take care of yourself!


    • Thanks John,
      It’s great to hear your perspectives and questions, given you’ve done another MLM before.
      With your previous MLM, you comment that people “would become a leader if someone spent more than the leader that month”.  I don’t fully understand why anyone would do that, it doesn’t sound right.  Most MLM companies reward you based on your efforts and the total sales volume of your organisation (customers and business builders).  So no, I don’t believe Young Living does that – it really doesn’t make common sense to me.

      Yes the Young Living Premium Starter Kit is amazing!  12 essential oils, 15 products in total and a bonus diffuser for the popular premium starter kit that would be over $300 if bought individually.

      You ask can someone be a customer without being a member?
      This post explains fully how to best get the Young Living products How Can I Be a Part of Young Living or just buy Young Living products?  In summary, yes someone can be a retail customer without being a member but they are paying 24% more by retail.  It is super easy to setup your own wholesale member account.  Please let me know if you need any help with this.  Regards John 

  5. Hi! Thank you for sharing the fact concerning the growth expected for the essential oils industry by 2022. That’s really impressive.

    It’s a huge relief not having to recruit family and friends. That’s so annoying and I would say no immediately if I discovered that Young Living pushes us to do that. After reading your advice on how to market their products, it does seem like a good business opportunity.

    • Thanks for chiming in Henry,
      Hi Dave Thank you for taking the time to review the Young Living affiliate program in great detail.
      Recruiting?  Who do you know who like it?  
      Not many people want to do this, to bug family and friends etc.
      Yes the Young Living Business Opportunity is quite different from other direct selling/MLM companies.  It has a unique combination of factors:
      + unilevel compensation plan (not binary compensation) so its more like affiliate income
      + booming industry and growing (pretty impressive you agree!!)
      + people love the oils!  So many people, once they try the Young Living essential oils and other products, are happy to keep buying them.  That can mean repeat commissions for you.
      + popularity of buying things online – the whole success of online retailers
      These combine positively to result in there being no need to recruit family and friends (so instead this is an optional thing).  This is really different from other MLM opportunities out there.  

  6. I was asked to research whether the Young Living affiliate program was a good opportunity and whether I thought you could make money promoting the line of products that they offer. These are the kinds of questions that require some research, of course, so here I am.

    You have explained very well and in detail just what the Young Living business opportunity is all about, and it seems like one of the best MLM businesses that I have run into. There is a minimum spend monthly to remain qualified to receive commissions, but it is not that high.

    The pressure is also not there to recruit former friends (after you bug them too much about selling whatever it is you are promoting), or family (who may want to disown you). Because the products themselves are useful and there is a demand for them, you can focus on that to get more “associates” or make sales, as the case may be.

    Thanks for this review, you have certainly cleared up any questions I had about the Young Living affiliate program. I can happily report back to my friends that this is a legitimate business they can try. It does require work on a consistent basis, as any business does, but that is not a show-stopper.   

    • Hi Dave Thank you for taking the time to review the Young Living affiliate program in great detail.
      I’m glad you stopped by my site and appreciate your positive feedback.
      Yes the Young Living Business Opportunity is a bit different from other direct selling/MLM companies.  It has a unique combination of factors:
      + unilevel compensation plan (not binary compensation) so its more like affiliate income
      + booming industry and growing
      + people love the oils!  So many people, once they try the Young Living essential oils and other products, are happy to keep buying them.  That can mean repeat commissions for you.
      + popularity of buying things online – the whole success of online retailers
      These combine positively to result in there being no need to recruit family and friends (so instead this is an optional thing).  This is really different from other MLM opportunities in the market.  

      It can be run more like an affiliate marketing/referral program where you are simply helping people.
      So blogging is a great way to make money with Young Living essential oils, wellness and household products.  Bloggers who have this passion for essential oils and helping others make informed buying choices can make money with Young Living this way.  Of course, if you love sharing the oils in person then that is great too, most people love the oils and they have a loyal and growing customer base.
      Please let me know if I can help you or your friends in anyway further, John

  7. Thanks for the informative article on the Young Living business opportunity.  Our family enjoys the many benefits of what oils have to offer.  The wholesale purchase is an appealing aspect for the amount of oils we use.  However, as you mentioned in your article, the competition from other aromatherapy products  can seem to be a bit intimidating.  Not being familiar with websites, is it difficult to have a unique enough website to draw visitors?  Thanks for any suggestions.

    • Hi Mike, Thank you for your comments!
      I agree why pay retail when you can pay wholesale right?  So buying direct from Young Living with your own wholesale member account gives you the purest most authentic essential oils.  That’s what our family does and we’ve been really happy with every product so far.

      Competition is everywhere in every industry.  Think of Taxis and Uber, Hotels and AIrBnB etc
      The companies that are leveraging online distribution and other efficiencies are staying ahead of the field.
      Its helpful to know of Young Living’s unique advantages, basically that they are the best essential oils through their unique Seed to Seal processes.  So that helps anyone wanting to make money selling Young Living have confidence.

      The other aspect is competition with other Young Living distributors, other essential oil company distributors and retail shops.  This is where you ask about “is it difficult to setup a unique enough website to draw visitors?

      A couple of considerations here:
      1. There are hundreds of uses for essential oils and they are growing in popularity
      2. 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?
      3. 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.
      4. Who it your avatar (your ideal customer)?  I suggest visualizing them, their issues in their daily lives and how can you through your content, blogs, video’s and sharing of Young Living’s products help them in their daily lives?

      Does that give you some ideas?
      I’d be happy to help you if you want any further advice on choosing the best niche for you.  This will then ensure you have a unique enough website.. Feel free to contact me at and I’d be happy to assist you in any way further
      Regards John

  8. I have never heard of Young Living before. Essential oils are so popular right now.  I love the idea that you can sell them yourself and don’t need to hassle your friends and family. With such a booming industry it seems like a great way to make some money.  I really enjoyed your post, so great job.

    • Hi Coralie, Thank you for your positive feedback, I’m really pleased you enjoyed the article.
