So what is the Young Living Lifestyle?
The BEST thing about Young Living is that it offers every single one of us help and encouragement on our health journeys. And we are ALL on a health journey, whether we know it or not. Some of us are just getting started and trying to figure out where to go next, and some of us have been working on our wellness for a while.
Wherever you fall on this scale, Young Living can support YOU! Young Living is about wellness, purpose, and abundance in ALL areas of your life! We’re about inspiring as many people as possible to begin THEIR own health journey as well. We can do so many great things with these bodies of ours when they are functioning properly, and YOU were created for FUNCTION! YL gives us the tools we need to help our bodies do just that. It’s just up to us to use them!
For many of you, getting started with the Premium Starter Kit was a HUGE step! An AWESOME and huge step! I know it certainly was for me.
But it is just the beginning! There is so much more to YL than JUST the starter kit.
What is Essential Rewards
Who has a Starbucks ‘Gold Card’? We gotta get those points, ya know?! You get free stuff if you get 125 Stars, y’all. Or maybe a punch card to a juice bar, and if you buy 6 you get the 7th free. You get the point.
Well Essential Rewards, it's Young Living's version of that. ER is our customer loyalty program. It is a totally OPTIONAL program that helps you earn FREE products!
The best part about the program is that there is no commitment or contract.
You can sign up for the program at anytime in your oil journey. If you don't love amazing products getting dropped off by the FedEx man each month, you can cancel anytime! Hahaha.
This program will allow you to build your oil and product collections and start sharing the love of oils with your friends and family. (more on that later.)
With ER you will get a monthly order of your choosing. It’s kind of like having a monthly subscription box except you get to customize the products in your box every month.
You choose what you want, and you can change it a million times before it ships. You choose what date, the payment method, and address you want it to show up to. It’s all up to you! Which is amazing. Most subscription box type of things are like, “You get what you get and you don't throw a fit.” Thumbs down.
Now you might be asking, how is this going to SAVE me money and why the heck would I want to #JoinTheClub?
Let me break it down!
First, you receive free points. When you’re on the ER program, you’ll get points BACK on all of your rewards purchases. After you have been on ER for three months, you can redeem those points for free goodies! Your ER order is a gift in and of itself. Then you get to use your rewards point to give yourself another gift, and another, and another... and aren't the best gifts the ones you pick out yourself?? :-)
Oh, and before we go on to #2, I also want to mention that you get cheaper shipping on ER orders. I know we are all spoiled by Amazon Prime these days (for which you pay an annual fee BTW--I always forget about that and think I just get free shipping) but if you haven't noticed, EVERY OTHER COMPANY charges shipping. I LOVE the fact that YL makes the shipping even cheaper when I order on ER!
Here’s what Essential Rewards offers:
Earn 10% back of your total purchase in store credit for months 1-3
Earn 20% back months 4-24
Earn 25% back months 25+ (this….is…CRAZY!!!)Where else can you go shopping and ALWAYS get a big percentage back??
You only get ONE Essential Rewards order per month. So, make it count! You can make as many ‘quick orders’ as you want, however you will not receive ER points on any quick order purchases. Does that make sense? (please ask if you have any questions at all!)
Here's what makes ER so awesome--you can always change your order to fit your needs for the month. If you need ALL oils, guuuuuuurl, get all oils. If you want to start replacing your chemical cleaning products with family safe, oil infused cleaning products, do that! RIDICULOUSLY amazing skin care? Yep.
You can get anything you'd like in your ER order. You NEED Thieves Household Cleaner in your life. Seriously, its the best!! If you have a hard time maintaining energy throughout the day, Super B is a supplement that gives AMAZING energy!!! MultiGreens….its packed to the brim with superfoods (blue/green algae/bee pollen/barley/wheatgrass etc). Those ingredients are life changing for your body/cells/systems. INCREDIBLE.
Be sure to look up the monthly promotions before you adjust your order for the month to so you don’t miss out on any additional freebies. The monthly promo freebies require that you purchase 100/190/250/300 PV all in ONE order. (more on this later.)
The SECOND reason to join ER is because YL is going to send you loyalty gifts at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months!
At 3 months, you’ll be gifted a 5 ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality oil!
At 6 months, you get a free 5 ml bottle of Thieves Vitality!
At 9 months, you get the amazing 15 ml Tea Tree!!
And at 12 months, you’ll get an exclusive, 5 ml Loyalty Blend specially formulated by Gary Young!
Every year after that, you will receive a new loyalty blend created just for ER members.
Check out this awesome video that Gary Young put together about the care that goes into the first year's special loyalty blend!
TIP: You can gather orders from friends and family to add onto your monthly order. This will help you meet your minimum requirement of 50 PV per month. You can see how this will add up quickly and you will be well on your way to earning free promotional YL products and store credit!
The THIRD reason to be on Essential Rewards is that when you’re on ER, you have access to EXCLUSIVE kits that are only available on ER.
Let’s dive into those kits a bit because they are the BOMB and SO much product for your money.
When you’re on ER, you can get Thieves and NingXia Red at 15% OFF!! We drink NR EVERY. DAY. So this is the best way to order it. We also can't get enough Thieves.
The Thieves ER kit comes with:
-15 ml Thieves essential oil blend
- Thieves aromabright toothpaste (Which we also use as deodorant)
-TWO bottles of Thieves household cleaner
-2 bottles Thieves foaming hand soap
-2 bottles Thieves waterless hand purifier
-2 bottles Thieves spray
You can get that whole kit for $118.50! Steal of a deal!
The NingXia Red ER Kit comes with:
-A 4-pack of 750 ml bottles of NingXia Red
-1 box of 2 oz NingXia Red singles packets (30 count)
All for $187.00!
These kits are 15% off and are ONLY available when purchasing through ER.
There is also a new Everyday Oils Essential Rewards kit for $133.00 133 PV item #4731 (Save $5.75 when you order on ER plus receive points back.)
***Tell us which kit you want to try first.
Now you want to know, what’s the monthly requirement, right?
The monthly minimum requirement is 50 PV, or about $50. The majority of the consumable items are the same number of PV points as the dollar amount, but not all. Some non-consumable items like diffusers have fewer PV points, but you can still buy them on ER. The point is, pay attention to how many PV points are in your cart not the dollar total amount of your order. You need 50 PV.
Now listen, 50 PV is NOTHIN! This is $50 that you would *probably (*by probably I mean most definitely) be spending somewhere else like the grocery store or Target on things like cleaning products, vitamins, shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste, laundry detergent, and more. You have to buy those things anyway! Why not buy them from Young Living where you KNOW the products are safe and non-toxic?
We call this transfer buying. You’re transferring your dollars from the grocery store to Young Living. You're getting up to 25% back while buying from YL and supporting a bunch of families and their small businesses in the process! Target only gives me 5% back when I use their card. So now I use my miles credit card to order from YL. I personally get miles from my cc company AND points back from YL when I order.
How do I order on ER?
All you have to do to enroll in ER is to log into your virtual office and click on “Essential Rewards” on the left-hand side of your screen. From there, the website will walk you through how to enroll. You can also call Customer Service at 1-800-375-3515 and they’ll set it up for you. Your third option is to hop on the live chat through the website and do it that way!
YOU will pick your order date! So maybe you know you don’t get paid until the 15th of every month, so you want to schedule your date for the 16th! You have the option of changing your date each month, if you want. So in the event that you get a bonus or something and you want to order early, you can totally do that with NO penalty at all. It’s flexible!
Then, load up your ER cart with whatever you want that month. Each month, you have until midnight of your order processing date to customize your box of wellness goodies!
Your Monthly Order
You can change the date you want your order to ship on! No problem. Just log into your account, go to Essential Rewards, and then edit the ship date. Easy peasy.
You should totally put it on your calendar to help remind yourself to edit your order before it processes. If you DON’T change your ER order, the exact order will autoship on the date you chose, the following month.
Don’t need anything a particular month? (You won’t have this problem) Ask your friends and family if they need anything and offer them your wholesale discount (24% off). You’ll likely be able to find a few people that want to get an oil or two that will cover your 50 PV minimum.
What is PV assistant?
While you’re logged into your Virtual Office, get your PV assistant set up! PV assistant is basically a backup cart in the event that an item goes out of stock and your monthly ER order drops below 50 PV. If your order processes below 50 PV for the month, you will start back at month 1, earning 10% back.
Every month Young Living provides promotions for members who spend 100 PV, 190 PV, 250 PV or 300 PV. (Remember you can only do ONE Essential Rewards order, not a few orders totaling 100 PV, 190 PV etc.)
Sooooo….not ONLY are you getting 10% back, to start with, but you get a TON of free product if you reach the promos! EVERY single month. Whaaaaattttttt. Young Living is seriously generous. It’s nuts.
If you cannot figure out what oils to buy, start by talking to the person you bought your kit from. That person will be able to help you research and decide what will work for you. Or look in your Product Guide that came with your kit and find a new product that you want to try!!!
You can set your PV assistant up to keep your order above whatever number you choose (at 50 PV or above). For instance, if you know you’re going to spend 300 PV every month on your ER order because you want the points and all of the freebies that come with a 300 PV order, set your PV assistant for 300. If you are receiving a paycheck from YL because you have shared with others, set your PV assistant to 100 PV to be able to get paid.
Also, YL will select the items that appear FIRST on your list. So I recommend choosing less expensive items first to list on the PV Assistant! YL has MANY items under $15!
PV Assistant will SAVE YO BOOTY if something goes out of stock at the last minute. It’s a lifesaver! Use it. Love it!
What products can you NOT live without? Do yourself a favor and figure out what the PV is for each product. We bet that you’ll soon see that your well-loved products will easily fit into the 50 PV per month minimum! (for me: EVERY month, I have a 15ml bottle of Lavender, a 15ml bottle of Peppermint, and Ningxia plus a ton others in my ER cart.)
Let’s talk about how to ‘spend’ your ER points!
Start by checking to see how many points you have accumulated. You will see this in your Virtual Office at www.youngliving.com in the top left under Rewards Point Balance. You can also go to the Essential Rewards section and go to the Rewards Points tab to see your earning rate and rewards balance.
To use your points, place a Quick Order. Log in to your account, add items to the regular Quick Order shopping cart. When you check-out, there is an option to use your Essential Reward Points as a payment option. These Essential Rewards points can be used like cash toward your favorite full-PV products.
Tip #1: Not all products are available when cashing out your ER points. You can only use points on FULL PV items. Diffusers and expensive oils (Rose) are examples of products that are not full-PV. Items eligible will have a blue banner next to them in your cart.
Tip #2: Start replacing all of your supplements, household cleaning products, bath and body products and skin care products with Young Living products and it’ll be a cinch to commit to 50-100 PV on ER. The grocery store doesn't give you 10% back on your shampoo, soaps, cleaners, etc!! Lol. Why not order though Young Living, get it shipped RIGHT to your door, and get points for purchasing!? It’s a win win.
Do I have to sign my life away?
Great question! No! You do NOT have to sign your life away to join the ER program. In fact, you can cancel ANYTIME with NO penalty whatsoever. I don’t know about you, but I was SUPER relieved when I found this out. The last thing I wanted was to feel like I was locked into something.
If you want to (although I can’t think of a single reason you would want to) cancel, all you have to do is give Customer Service a ring or jump on the live chat and you can cancel. You’re NOT STUCK at all.
If you’re going to be ordering ANYTHING at all from YL, I recommend that you do it on ER and at least get the points! Why not? If you decide it’s not for you, feel free to cancel, but I think you’re gonna love it!
*Who is getting excited to try out ER?
If you decide to go the 50 PV route, which is TOTALLY AWESOME, you can definitely build your wellness arsenal 50 PVs and one month at a time! Here are a few examples of what 50 PVs a month look like!
Take small steps, and before you know it you will be making healthier decisions in many areas of your life!
*What category are you most surprised but excited to know Young Living carries?
Thank you for your time today!
If you are already on ER, spending 100+PV and you are sharing with friends? And you are LOVING your oils. guess what? You can totally help others get oils in their homes, and bring them SO. MUCH. HELP. If you share your oils, and a friend wants the kit too, they can sign up under you. You will make $50 for each friend who signs up under you with the Premium Starter Kit! HOLLA!
The way WE do the business, doesn't feel like the normal MLM model. NOT AT ALL!
No cold calls, no irritating sales talk, no ‘who wants to change their life???? Message me for details!!!!” we just DON’T roll that way.
NOBODY likes that. Sorry.
So, if you find yourself saying, “I will NEVER sell oils.” but you're on ER, and you are sharing with friends? You should really consider helping your friend get set up with a kit! It’s not about making a quick buck. It’s about getting oils into people’s hands. It’s about helping your friend sleep, who can’t sleep, or to be able to take a deep breath from some Stress Away when they’re having one of “those” days.
Helping people doesn't feel like a 'business'. But thats all we do! We help people, and yes we get paid for it. And you can too. My life has changed because of helping people use these amazing oils!
