AN INTRODUCTION TO ESSENTIAL OILS - FAQ

Essential Oils in the beginning 

WELCOME, we are so glad you are here!!!!
I have prayed over anyone being here to read through this class, I am so excited to share with you all today!
Before I started using essential oils, I was a huge skeptic with a lot of questions. I had no idea what an oil was or why in the world I needed them. Now years later I can’t imagine our lives without them. I am not just saying that, they have poured into every part of our days and have truly become a lifestyle for us. The drastic testimonials in my little family are truly amazing. We have everything we need when our bodies are fighting for immunity plus so much more. I also love that the oils can help YOU or your little one or your man- there are so many options to meet each need.
Here is the trick with oils though, they work differently than what we are all used to. They need to be used daily so that are bodies can work along side them- it’s not a quick fix or a “masking” of symptoms.
But I TOTALLY get it! I know the questions you have. I have had them myself. And I want to point you to some facts, truths, and resources for you to learn more on your own!

Community and team

Many people don’t understand that when you signup and buy oils for the first time you are joining a team! Even if you do not put a number in the sponsor/ enroller spots, Young Living will assign you to a team. Make sure you are joining a team that is ready to walk along side you, I can’t emphasize this enough!!!
Our team has webinars, online classes, facebook groups, huddles, google chats, guides and bootcamp and training for those interested. The community is one of the most beautiful and unexpected parts for me. My team is truly like family, I mean that with all of my heart.

Are essential oils safe

This method of assisting your body is new to our western culture. But Essential Oils have been used as a powerful tool in health for thousands of years across the globe. In turn, there have been years of research and wisdom that have come before us. Here are a few things to know and think about…
As you’re doing your own research on safety, be sure to find CREDIBLE sources of information that are trustworthy. Opinions are not always reliable sources especially when they’re from people you don’t know. So to get you started, here are some places to look.
There are some great books written by Doctors and Scientists at Life Science Publishing . They talk about the science, chemistry, safety and usage of essential oils. 
Also, Young Living has some clear information on their website.
This just scratched the surface. I’m sure you want more info than that so keep reading! This is also the importance of joining a community! Basically we will walk with you hand in hand!

Are all oils created equal?

The short answer is NO. Essential oils are not regulated therefore companies can put any filler or additive into what they call an “essential oil”. Most of what you will find at the grocery store is either another ingredient altogether or has toxic fillers in it.
When you are using essential oils on your body for any reason related to health or skincare, it is very dangerous to use these types of oils and can actually bring you more harm. You can have reactions to these types of oils and they can make conditions worse.
Young Living owns there own farm and has rigorous testing and standards for their oils.
No fillers are ever added to Young Living’s oils and no toxins are present. In fact, they don’t even use pesticides or herbicides on their crops or soil so that toxins won’t be present ever. Anything that comes from a farm outside of Young Living’s farms must meet these strict standards as well.
You can visit the Young Living farms anytime you want and see their methods of growth and testing. That’s how open they are about their purity.
You can see YL’s seed to seal promise on their website. “Seed to Seal” is not a slogan, it’s who Young Living is! I personally wouldn’t trust anyone else when it comes to my family!

Seed to Seal

the fear of the unknown...

We have an entire team of leaders and a beautiful community of oilers who are here to walk you through the learning process of using essential oils. We have online classes, live workshops, EO guide, facebook groups and more.

BUT even if you didn’t have us, you have your bottles! Each bottle has little tabs that you can peel back and read about how to use each oil. It really is that simple!

After you sign up for a YL membership, they also have the New Young Living University that goes through the basics of “what are oils”, “how to use oils”, “everyday oils” and more.

You don’t have to know EVERYTHING from the beginning. The more you use your starter kit oils, the more you will see what your favorites are and which ones you use the most! I promise the more you use them the more you will become comfortable and before you know it you are an oiling machine!

mlm companies a the real deal

A scam is “a dishonest scheme or fraud”. There is nothing fraudulent about a MLM. Everything about the business structure is forthcoming and honest. When you take a look at their compensation plan, you can see where each of your dollars go.

When you are purchasing anything from any MLM, what you are doing is not only supporting the company that made a product, but you’re also supporting your friend.

You’re buying local.

You’re helping pay for a little girl’s ballet classes, and supper for a family. You’re investing in that little boy’s college fund and school supplies for him. You’re supporting families that you know and so many that you don’t!

An MLM uses the costs that a company would normally use for marketing and gives it to families so they can build their own dreams and create a business for themselves. It is so far beyond paying big bucks to top level execs, but gives everyone an opportunity to create an income for themselves!

I don't want to do the BUSINESS

You 100% don’t have to! In fact, 95% of Young Living members don’t build a business. You never have any obligation to build, but the opportunity is always there. 

Do I have to order every month?

You 100% don’t have to! You can order whenever you want! To keep your membership “current” you need to order once in a 12 month period, that’s all!
If you DO find yourself ordering often or ordering large amounts, I do always suggest enrolling in the monthly ordering system only because you save SO much more money that way and earn free points on each order!

oils are too expensive

One 15ML bottle of Lavender has approximately 250-300 drops of oil in it. This bottle costs $23.50. So each drop of Lavender costs between .07 – .09 cents. Once you start using oils, you will see how far one drop goes! You don’t need much because these drops are very concentrated and potent!
A bottle of Lemon is $11.25 so each drop is between .0014 and .0017 cents.
So if you do the math on each bottle, you’ll see that a few cents is hardly anything compared to how much we can end up spending on some over the counter medicines, skin care products, cleaning agents etc.
Plus if I look at how much I have SAVED from this lifestyle change, its truly remarkable.

The starter kit is expensive

Lets also break down the cost of the Starter Kit because in the long run, this will save you the MOST money. As distributors this is why we talk about it the most.
The YL starter kit is $160 currently. The diffuser alone is between $63 and $85 (depending on which one you choose). If you add up the kit’s oil costs, it comes to $253. ( so that is $336 total at retail price) – So you’re getting a HUGE discount and almost getting the diffuser for free. PLUS you’re not paying the extra $45 for a membership. So overall, you’re getting almost $100 in products/membership for free.
