FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We remember having a lot of questions before we got started, and we are guessing you might, too?! Below are some of the most common questions we had and we just want to make sure you have the answers you need to get started confidently. If you happen to have a question that is not found below, you can always reach out to us directly, anytime, HERE.
HOW DO I GET YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS?
Anyone can get Young Living Essential Oils! Everyone has the option of being a Wholesale Member or a Retail Member. The difference between these two options is simple: If you sign up as a wholesale member you are eligible for ANY of the Premium Starter Kits and you receive a 24 percent discount on all products, as well as access to Essential Rewards. Retail customers do not receive any of these benefits.
ARE THERE MONTHLY FEES?
NOPE! There are zero monthly requirements or fees involved! As a Young Living Wholesale Member you are able to purchase products anytime you want and receive that awesome 24% discount. There is no catch or hidden costs involved with the Retail Membership either, so if for whatever reason you prefer to pay 24% more on products, that's a safe option, too.
DO I HAVE TO SELL ANYTHING?
NOPE! Never. Ever. While Young Living is set up as a MLM, only about 1% of members actually do the business. The opportunity is there for you if you want it; however, it is never required and will only be brought up if it's something you're interested in. Most of us are really turned off by typical MLM's so it's important to know that being a Wholesale Member is like having a membership at Costco, Sam's Club etc.
WHY IS OUR SSN REQUIRED?
This is actually a FTC requirement since all Wholesale Members are set up to have earning potential. This information is collected for tax purposes; however, is only accessed if you earn $600+ in that tax year. This is a non-issue if you choose not to do the business and just want to be a Wholesale Member/Customer. "We" never see it and it's encrypted for our protection even within the company.
WHY YOUNG LIVING? THERE'S SO MANY OPTIONS...
Why Young Living? Because of the Seed to Seal Guarantee. You can learn more about Seed to Seal HERE. It's important to understand that all other essential oil companies have to get their oils from a 3rd party. Some companies might claim to have relationship(s) with farmer(s); however, they still need to outsource the distillation process, which is yet another crucial step in the process. Just like in any industry there is a dark side and the fact is all the other oils available on the market are heavily diluted with dangerous synthetics and chemicals to stretch their dollar. If you have ever heard of the saying if you want something done right, do it yourself ...you'll understand why Young Living has worked as hard as they have over the last 22 years to become and remain the Pioneer of Essential Oils, providing the highest quality available. You can read more about WHY we only trust Young Living HERE. We encourage you to do your homework so you can feel confident with whoever you decide to trust. HERE are some questions you should consider asking in your due diligence.
WHY SHOULD WE NEVER PURCHASE YOUNG LIVING OILS ON AMAZON, EBAY, AND OTHER WEBSITES THAT AREN'T YOUNG LIVING?
Young Living ONLY sells their products on YoungLiving.com and does NOT authorize their products to be sold on any other website. Therefore, if purchasing from alternative websites, such as Amazon, eBay, etc. -- even if it says Young Living -- it's NOT Young Living and those products are more than likely adulterated. It is actually very easy to purchase unopened, tamperproof tops and put them on already open bottles of essential oils, which allows the unscrupulous seller to stretch their dollar.
I'M CURRENTLY A RETAIL MEMBER BUT WANT TO BE A WHOLESALE MEMBER...
Easy fix! First, connect with the person you are enrolled under so they can help. They will most likely suggest trying to re-register as a Wholesale Member and if that doesn't work to either jump on Live Chat or call Customer Support to have Member Services take care of it. All you have to request is to have your Retail Member swapped over to a Wholesale Membership and they'll get you dialed in!
