Win prizes all week from Thirty-One, Origami Owl and more in the Southern Savers Work From Home giveaway bash.

This week I’m sharing 5 different companies that you can start to make side income with in 2014.  Since most folks are realizing just how tight things are many times extra income is needed along with saving on groceries.  We’ve already discussed Thirty-One bags and Younique Make Up, today we are going to talk about Young Living.  This is my story…

Young Living is an older network marketing company that has been around for 20 years, but the exciting part for new distributors is that just in the last year they have 62.5% growth.  People are really starting to wake up to natural remedies and with that the essential oil industry is booming.  Young Living is the only essential oil company who own their own farms, meaning they have control over the process from the very beginning.  Their Essential Oils are 100% Therapeutic Grade which means they are safe to be used topically, internally and aromatically.  The products really are amazing.

Young Living Oil Uses

I know you’ve probably seen folks in your Facebook feed or at church that rave about natural remedies for health care.  If you’ve dismissed it as them being crazy then I was with you for a long time.  If you take a few minutes to actually talk to folks though, you’ll see that it really does work!

Young Living Essential Oils sell themselves. As you use them and see how well they work, you will want to share them with your family and friends.  This company is different from any direct sales company I’ve worked with.  You are signing folks up to be wholesale customers to get a 24% discount on products.  In turn they end up getting a few more friends to be wholesale buyers under them.  You earn a flat rate bonus for each new person that signs up plus commission off future purchases that they make.

There are no parties to host, though you may find that folks ask you to come over and share your story about how this is helping your family.  As you walk the walk, using the oils and getting healthier people want to see what you are doing and want to try it for themselves.  It is an awesome job to help people get healthier!

Our Story:
What got me interested was a person we go to church with.  She was on 4 daily medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and anxiety.  After 4 weeks of essential oils she had weaned her self off all her meds (with her doctors permission) and now takes no medications just uses oils!  My family doesn’t have pharmacy coverage on our insurance plan so this perked my ears right away and got us to try it.  I quickly found that she was right.  We aren’t on many medications normally, but we are much healthier.

Young living Starter Kit

Getting Started:
To get started on your business and trying out essentials oils head over and sign up for a starter kit.  I recommend the premium kit for $150 only because of how many oils that come in.  Just the Everyday Oils set is more than the cost of the kit regularly!

You will get to start with:

(1) Everyday Oils collection that includes (10) different bottles of oil (see the picture above with how to use them)
(1) Home Diffuser,
(1) Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide,
(1) Stress Away Oil 5-ml,
(1) AromaGlide Roller Fitment,
(10) Sample Packets (2 each) of: Lavender, Peppermint, Peace & Calming, Lemon, and Thieves
(2) NingXia Red 2-oz. samples

It also includes everything you need to start your business.

If you sign up two people in your first month and they also get the premium kit, you will have earned over $100 and almost paid all of your start up costs!  You can get started with smaller kits that go down to $40, but they don’t include all the oils and you’ll end up wanting them…

As soon as you are signed up, you can start to build your business.  You don’t need a website, but if you choose to get one that is an additional $9.95 a month.  There are no other fees or annual renewals.

Don’t worry about getting started on your own.  As soon as you sign up I’ll get you plugged into our private Oily Family Room Facebook group that is a wealth of information. You can search the archives, ask questions, get tips on how to use your oils etc. The Oily Families Facebook page is another amazing place to find inspiration!

Want to just shop and not sell?
You can get the same 24% discount when you sign up and get a starter kit.  Then any future purchase you make you get the wholesale price!  If you don’t want to save the 24% then you can shop directly here and order a few oils to try out at the full price.

If you don’t know where to start I recommend Theives, which is a great immune booster and will keep your kids healthy!  Rub a little on their feet every night and enjoy a sniffle free house!
