Why I Started Selling Essential Oils
The reason why I started selling essential oils wasn’t simply just to add another income to our home (I’ll tell you later why this is nice, though). It mostly was the desire to share with my family and friends the world that was opened up to me in essential oils. My family has had our ups and downs in working toward a more chemical free life, but essential oils have always played a crucial part in it.
It began with the cleaning essentials in our home. I have slowly removed chemical cleaners and things like dryer sheets from our home. I have replaced them with Thieves cleaners and wool dryer balls infused with essential oils. When I stopped for a few months with this routine, I noticed a huge difference. Money was tight. I thought a few chemical cleaners here and there would save some money and not be a big deal. I was wrong. I and my family had the worst few months of allergies, sickness and just plain ‘yuck’. We’ve been back to investing in our health ever since.

Essential oil use is really a lifestyle change. Better health, better mind wellness and overall an empowerment for doing what is best for your family. I love the saying “from farm to table”. Young Living essential oils work right alongside that mission statement. From “seed to seal” and into the home of our family. I’ve noticed a whole positive outlook in knowing I’m giving the best I can to my kids and husband. All while creating a business for myself that brings income to my home.
What I Sell
I specifically sell Young Living essential oils. My reasoning for this is because I feel this company has an awesome reputation. After trying other oils they are what works best for my family. I began selling Young Living because I want to stand behind a company and lifestyle that I advocate for. As I also mentioned, I am able to add another source of income to our home. Why wouldn’t I purchase and sell something I enjoy?
What Are the Benefits?
There are also great perks to selling Young Living essential oils. The Essential Rewards program offers the chance to purchase my oils every month and earn free product and points toward more product. Can’t beat that. Plus getting the wholesale discount, I would be nuts to not become a distributor. I love the starter kits because starting at $160, I received so much. The diffuser alone was worth it. Plus, there are an assortment of oils included. Frankincense being one of the oils. Essential oil users know that isn’t a cheap oil. At least it shouldn’t be. (Tip: Don’t ever buy Frankincense that is inexpensive. Frankincense should be at least around $50+ for true quality.) Plus, the kits are gorgeous. I might sound crazy, but I love when packaging is pleasing to the eye.
The extra income has been great to be a travel funds account. I admit that I end up turning around a lot of the profit into purchasing more oils for our home (not to mention homesteading), but I’ve sat aside a good amount for spending money while we are on trips. I am planning to work harder this year to bring in a larger income from Young Living to cover entire trips. From booking to food costs.
Are You Ready to Sell Too?
If you’ve been considering selling essential oils (sign up) or even simply using oils in your home, be sure to check out my website. I can tell you that essential oils has been a life changer in our family. There is something to trusting something that has been around for centuries.
Will essential oils cure everything? No. However, a chemical free and green lifestyle is a better choice for my family. We trust these oils in our daily routine. Our spirits have been lifted as well as our overall health. For me especially. I have a hard time focusing and often have a temper. My temper is much shorter when my energy is weak. A reason I use Ningxia Red for an energy boost every morning.
This is just a small tidbit of our journey with Young Living essential oils. The benefits of using essential oils is endless. I leave you with these thoughts.
