this post is about using your young living wholesale membership to replace toxic household products, earn points back and freebies when you shop essential rewards, and participate in the compensation plan to support your healthy habit.
Was I skeptical of the whole essential oil, plant based thing when I got my Young Living membership? Not too much! This girl is a natural health junking through and through. In fact, I have far more faith in God-given solutions like plants than I do in man-made ones. So I didn’t need too much convincing, I actually went looking for how to buy a starter kit and detox my home with essential rewards.
But what I wasn’t sure of was if I would need to place an order every month.
However, once I got my hands on Young Living’s catalog, I realized that despite all of my efforts, we still had so many toxins in our home! From cleaning supplies, to makeup, toiletries, candles, and the list goes on.

Naturally, like any crunchy momma would do, I started taking in everything I could about ditching toxins in our home and switching to 100% clean products now that I knew I could trust Young Living’s Seed to Seal promise to never add harmful chemicals rot any products.
I even asked my enroller to come teach a class at my house for my family and friends. And here’s what I learned.
You don’t have to order monthly to keep your membership active
I write this in bold because it’s important to me to know that members can choose when and how to shop. After you order a starter kit and are officially a wholesale member, spending 50PV (about $50) a year is all it takes to keep your membership active. I love that – low pressure and easy to maintain!

How to shop smarter with essential rewards
Along with your wholesale membership you get access to a few benefits that are totally free. The first is the Essential Rewards monthly ordering program. If you watched the video above, you’ll know all about the amazing perks of being in ER and how there are truly no catches. But to sum it up:
- You can join ER at any time for free if you’re a wholesale member
- You have to spend a minimum of 50PV (about $50) a month to stay in the program
- Your order is customizable each month
- You can drop out at any time with no penalty
- But, the longer your stay in – the better the perks.
- You get free gifts the longer you participate.
- And access to monthly promotions…
- Discounted shipping
- And more! Check it out here
Why this is important
I believe that before we can really feel great about making a change or an investment, even in ourselves, we have to know why its important! And when it comes to using clean, plant based products in my home and life – here are a couple resources that have greatly impacted my understanding of what happens to the human body when it’s exposed to chemicals over time. I truly hope that if you take one thing away from this post, its looking into one of these resources and weighing what the information means for yourself, your family, and your life!
- Stink – a documentary on Netflix
- Sicker Fatter Poorer – a book from Amazon written by Leonardo Trasande, MD of NYU
- EWG app – find out what’s really in those “natural” products around your home!
Make the most of your membership part 2: participate in the compensation plan
Just like essential rewards, the compensation plan is a free member benefit. So at any time if you find yourself sharing or wanting to share YL with friends, you can create an affiliate link on your VO (virtual office) and share it with anyone you’d like. Then, when they enroll using your link – you’ll get a bonus and commission as a thank you. Kind of like Amazon affiliates or something like that but way better. Trust me, I’ve done a variety of affiliate programs. This one is the most user friendly I’ve come across. And I just like it better than anything else I’ve seen. Because (just a few):
- it can function just like an affiliate link so it’s great for bloggers or busy people
- low pressure (no mandatory monthly order)
- Elite Express – fast track program with bonuses for go-getters
- user-friendly VO
- member independence, autonomy, & privacy (each member is responsible for his/her own orders) No one likes being sold to or having someone else have access to their payment info or account.
- all online
How to use the comp plan
So is it that simple? Just share your link and be done? Well, it can be. But that’s not the smartest way to use the comp plan. You’ll want to learn about how to structure your business and make sure you understand essential rewards which can be done on the VO or by viewing private trainings in our facebook group and goal mapping with your enroller.
But – like any partnership or recommendation you would make, its really important that you respect the trust of your audience whether that may be friends, family, or online. Never recommend or share an affiliate link with something you don’t actually believe in and use! Trust me, it will just come off as forced and awkward. For example – if you’re really into weightlifting, everyone knows that about you, and then you start recommending/representing a 5 minute cardio program, it may not seem genuine since its not something you use. Make sense?
Thats another thing I love, you can’t receive any commission unless you’re actively ordering monthly on essential rewards – just a way to make sure its genuine 🙂
I’d say, start looking around! Around your house, med cabinet, car, purse, office…and just take inventory of chemicals you’re encountering every day that are affecting you whether you know it or not. Type them into the EWG app for bonus points!
And once again, maybe you’re like I was and already buying stuff that is labeled “natural.” But don’t be fooled! (and watch that documentary!). There are so many loopholes that companies slip through and even some of the biggest “natural” brands don’t check out on the EWG app.
Knowing that everything you’ll ever get shipped to your door from Young Living is clean and chemical free is truly priceless, and you just may find yourself ready to dip your toes in! You can do so by getting a starter kit which will come with a gift from me, access to our private facebook community, and most importantly your wholesale membership with access to essential rewards!
