Getting Paid to Live a Wellness Lifestyle: My Young Living Business


Hey friends! This post is unlike any others, but it is already one of my favorites!! I’ve contemplated writing this out for a few days, but have decided I seriously would be doing you an injustice if I didn’t share all of this amazing goodness about my Young Living business. So, let’s get into things!!

If you follow along on Instagram, you have no doubt that I have become obsessed with essential oils. If you aren’t following along (what are you waiting for?! Follow along here) go ahead and read this post first. I share my oily journey as well as a few reasons why I chose Young Living there, it’s super important!

Okay, now the fun stuff, let’s talk business. Young Living has changed my life in so many ways. First of all, they’ve put a fire under my butt to dive deeper into the world of wellness and learn all of the things. From being more aware of the ingredients in the products we use every day to having a better understanding of the healing power of plants & food… it has all inspired me so much to lead a healthier life and has shown me how important (and easy) it is to take care of my body!! But also, they have literally paid me to do it. Yep! You heard me right. Are you wondering, “Wait, what?! How?!” Let me explain…

Once you grab your Premium Starter Kit, you are automatically enrolled as a member and therefor a distributor. Basically, you have the option to go business if you want to, but you never have to. It really isn’t too complicated. When your oils come in the mail, you will instantly fall in love, I promise. That obsession easily turns you into a never ending oily blabber and all of your friends and family will be intrigued. So intrigued that they want their own kit. Give them your sign up link and there you have it, your first kit sale! Yay! That’s an extra $50 in your pocket. See, easy right? Have 3 best friends? A best friend, a sister, and a mom? That’s $150 worth of commission and your kit is paid for. Some girls do this even before their kit is delivered to them!!

So, I want to go more into depth about my experience with the business side of Young Living and then we’ll get into some FAQs. This business wasn’t really a plan of mine and it sort of just happened. A friend I made through blogging (hey April!) always raved about her oils, I remember always being in awe of all of the things she did with them and I loved that she shared it all on her Instagram. Then one day, she spoke about the business side of Young Living and how she was getting so many oils and other goodies for free AND being payed, like hundreds… all I thought was, “uh, sign me up!” And that’s exactly what I did. Ever since that day, I have been immersed in learning everything about essential oils and all of the other wellness products Young Living has to offer. And let me tell you, it has been one of the most fun things I have ever done! Being surrounded by women with the same interests as you and understanding more about the ingredients in the products you use every single day is so liberating. I love being able to make a more conscious effort when deciding what products I want to use on my body, in my body, and in our home. Plus, within the first month of having my essential oils, I made an extra $160 (which paid for my kit) and I thought, “hey, this is real… this is pretty awesome”.


Young Living Business FAQs

But isn’t this just a pyramid scheme? 

No! Absolutely not. Actually, pyramid schemes are 100% illegal so you can rest easy knowing this is most definitely not one. Yes, some business models with similar set ups can be sketchy, but those are the companies that ask you to buy product to resell or have huge buy ins. Trust me, I have looked into those types of companies to work for and they weren’t for me either. Young Living is completely different!

There has to be a huge buy in, right? How else can I become a distributor?

Nope! Like I mentioned before, absolutely no big buy ins. Literally all you need to get started is your own starter kit… that’s it. You don’t need to stock oils in your home to ship out, you don’t need to buy and resell product… Young Living takes care of it all! All you need is your kit (everyone who buys a kit/ becomes a member is a “distributor” but is never, ever obligated to sell… it’s all up to you!), you can chose exactly which kit you want (although I recommend the Premium Starter Kit) and then you just educate and share. It’s that easy. It’s actually extremely easy, especially once you fall head over heels in love with the product.

What is the payment plan like? How can I get my kit paid for before it even gets shipped to me?

Okay, so there are a few ways to make commission. When you sell a kit to someone, you make $50. Then, for the first 3 months you make 25% of any purchase they make from the Young Living website. Then, you make a certain percentage off of every single person you have in your “downline”, forever. This is called residual income and is amazing. It’s super easy to create long lasting customers because 1) they’re going to become absolutely obsessed with their oils and need more 2) they want to try more of what Young Living has to offer (cleaning supplies, supplements, beauty products/ make up, oral hygiene products, bath products, food, etc) 3) they’re going to want to be on Essential Rewards (more about this on my Instagram highlights @wellnessavenue) asap because who doesn’t love free oils and money back on every purchase with discounted shipping?! No brainer.

So many girls get their kit paid for before it even gets to them. Do you have a sister, a best friend, and a mom? Boom. Three kits sold and that’s your kit paid for. Amazing right?

How much can you really be making working for Young Living?

I was skeptical about this too and I honestly didn’t think I would be paid until I was in this thing for months… but here I am, making even more my second month than I did my first. When April first shared about the business side with me, she was at the rank of executive. Now two months later, she’s at the rank of silver. She has been doing this business for less than a year. She’s a rockstar.

Remember that thing I mentioned, residual income? Yeah, it just keeps growing with time. Let me break down the average monthly income for each rank:

  • Star – $77 (this was the rank I hit the first month when I made $160)
  • Senior Star – $240
  • Executive – $514
  • Silver – $2,227
  • Gold – $6,067
  • Platinum – $15,324
  • Diamond – $39,566
  • Crown Diamond – $74,188
  • Royal Crown Diamond – $152,377

Guys!! These are MONTHLY incomes. Like, what?! There are women of every single rank in our Facebook groups and hearing their stories are absolutely inspiring and motivating, not to mention absolutely amazing!! Seriously, what boss babes. (source)

Just imagine what these numbers could do for you and your family. I day dream about it all the time.


Young Living Business // Side Hustle

April, from @DarlingApril, is who I signed up under. She has been using oils for less than a year but is easily in love with them. She used them through out her pregnancy and now uses them as a new mama. I asked her to answer a few questions for you guys so you can hear more about the business from someone besides me. Sometimes having two opinions makes all of the difference. Here is what she has to say about Young Living:

Q: What is your favorite thing about working for Young Living? 

A: My favorite thing about having my Young Living business is the freedom. With a two month old, every day is different. I love that I can work around her schedule and prioritize my family. It’s so amazing being able to pick up and go to the beach or the park, ad be able to work from there!

Q: How did you get started with the business side of Young Living?

A: I got started because I fell madly in love with my oils. When you are so obsessed with a  product and it changes your life SO much, it’s easy to share about it. When I saw the earning potential, we started dreaming about what that money could do for us, and I jumped right in head first. It started small and now I have a team of 150 ladies and spend my days sharing the wellness and abundance with them.

Q: What is your rank and what does it entail?

A: I’m a silver leader with young living. At this rank, the average paycheck is $2,200, which is insane. At this rank, my days consist of leading my team of awesome business girls in growing their own businesses, sharing about oils to new friends, and following up with current members. It’s lots of education and lots of leading my girls towards success in their own businesses. Now that I’m a silver and a mom, I have my hands full, but I love it so much and wouldn’t trade this job for anything.


Being on an amazing team is so important if you want to go forward with this business. Having a solid group of ladies to support you and motivate you to learn more is key. Our team is everything I could have asked for and more. I love my fellow oily gals!!
