LAST DAY: Amazing Essential Oil FREEbies Promotion!!

Aug
31
2014
Sunday

Young Living Starter Kit Promotion!!  Only available in August!

**Today (8/31) is the last day to take advantage of this amazing freebies offer!**

As many of you now know, Ryan and I have jumped on board the essential oils bandwagon (yes, Ryan too!) We use them for our family for a natural way to fight allergies*, get rid of the discomfort of burns*, fight colds & the flu*, get rid of tummy aches, weight loss*, and even bug repellent! (And lots lots more! Have you heard the saying “there’s an oil for that”? There really seems to be!!)

The “medicine”* that God created is definitely powerful and created to work perfectly with our bodies. It’s funny that the media talks about essential oils like they’re a “new trend” when people have been using essential oils for thousands of years! :)

With company after company popping up (goodness, it sometimes seems like a new one pops up every week) to try to take advantage of the “new trend” of essential oils, I’m thrilled to have found a company that I trust and that was the pioneer in bringing the use of therapeutic essential oils here to the states.

Several of you have asked me when I’m bringing this special back, so if you’re interested in getting a starter kit of some of the most useful essential oils and essential oil blends, then I’m bringing back the special sale just for Surviving The Stores readers this month!

If you get a premium Young Living starter kit (which is, on its own, a really great deal at $150)…

Want to get started with essential oils?  Check out this awesome promotion for May!!

…then I will ALSO mail you a super helpful Essential Oils Reference Guide (you can look up almost anything in it and see which oils have been used to help with that problem), a set of essential oil labels to keep your oils organized, AND I will give you either a $20 Paypal deposit or $20 Amazon Gift Card!

Want to get started with essential oils?  Check out this awesome promotion for May!!

I’m using all of my commission that I would make off of your purchase to give you these freebies because I truly believe that you will absolutely fall in love with these essential oils as much as we have!

If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below by August 31st to take advantage of these freebies!

1.  Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.

2.  Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices.

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 1423474 (so that I can send you your free book!)

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get. My recommendation would be the Premium Starter Kit (and that’s the one where you get all of the freebies!) Those are the oils that I use almost every single day! You can get the kit that’s $150, or you can get a kit for $160 with an even nicer essential oil diffuser!

6. I’d recommend skipping the Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. I’ll send over an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs).

7. Go through the checkout process.

8.  After you sign up, send me a message through my contact form letting me know that you signed up through this promotion so that I will know to send you your freebies. :)

BONUS Step 9 (COMPLETELY Optional!)  If you would like to earn 2 bonus oils this month,  then get your order total up to 190 PV (different products have different point values).  You could get the Start Living With Everyday Oils kit and automatically have 100 point value… then you’ll just need 90 more points to get the bonus oils.  For example, you could grab an extra bottle of Thieves Oil at 33.75 points, 15 ml bottle of Lavender at 23.5 points, 15 ml bottle of Lime at 11 points, and the 14.4 ounces of Thieves Household Cleaner at 22 points (just pour one capful of the concentrated Thieves cleaning solution into a spray bottle and it lasts for a really long time!) All of those items will bring your total points up to $190.25 which will qualify you to get the two BONUS oils!  (This step is completely optional!)

IMPORTANT:  This promotion is only available when you sign up with the sponsor ID and enroller ID as #1423474.  Also, if you recommend this promotion to a friend (or group of friends) and they sign up too through this promotion then please let me know so that you can get credit for referring them. :)

Never disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking medical treatment because of something you have read on this website.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Does signing up make me a “distributor”?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?

There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?

It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it?

I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.

Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.

Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.

With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.

I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.

How will I know which oils to use for what?

One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils!

The reference guide that I’m giving away as part of this promotion is also a HUGE resource. You can look up almost anything in it and see which essential oils and supplements can be helpful.

Does Young Living only sell essential oils?

The answer to this one was suprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.

Please let me know if you have any other questions at all and I will do my best to answer them!
