Essential Oils For Sale – Why We Love Essential Oils & How to Save!

Essential Oils for Sale

Have you been hearing more & more about essential oils & wondering what they are all about & the different ways to use them? I had heard about essential oils for awhile and finally had the chance to try them when a blogger friend of mine shared some samples with me about a year and a half ago. I am now totally hooked on using therapeutic-grade Essential Oils with my family for more than a year and a half – and not only am I hooked, but my husband and girls are too, as they have seen the effects first-hand, time and time again with better overall health & wellness in our home.  Sia & her family also started using essential oils about 6 months ago & they are loving all the ways they can use them in their home, too!

We decided to share our love of essential oils with all of you readers as it’s something that has changed our lives so much and you might also be looking for more natural ways of dealing with wellness in your family, natural & effective cleaning methods, chemical free beauty regimes and more. We know that there are different companies & brands that people like, but we just wanted to share the Essential Oils that we use & why we chose them.

What is Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil?

The potential danger of an essential oil is generally relative to its level or grade of purity. Many essential oils are designed exclusively for their aroma-therapeutic quality; these essential oils generally should not be applied directly to the skin in their undiluted or “neat” form. Some can cause severe irritation, provoke an allergic reaction and, over time, prove hepatotoxic. Non-therapeutic grade essential oils are never recommended for topical or internal use. Source

For many of you, you may have already used essential oils for aromatherapy or other ways, as they are found in so many retail & health food stores now.  However, if you read the labels carefully, they will say things like “Do not take internally” or “Do not apply directly to your skin”.  Essential oil companies can claim to be “Pure Essential Oil” but that claim can legally be made if there is as little as just 5% of the actual essential oil from the plant in the bottle. There is also no regulation for how an essential oil is to be extracted from the plant. Companies are free to use high-heat, high-pressure, and chemical-solvents to extract more from the plants, and still use whatever label they want to on the oil. In fact, the majority of essential oil companies buy their oils from an oil broker. The company isn’t actually involved in the process of cultivating the plants or extracting the oils at all.  So, all this to say, that it is really important to do your research & find out exactly what is in the essential oils you are using & find out the process they have used to extract, distill & bottle the oils.

I will tell you that when you look for pure, therapeutic grade oils, they will definitely be more expensive than what you can find in the health food stores or other places, but for us, we know that we are paying for that higher quality in the whole process of creating the oils. We are a frugal family so it was hard at first to think about spending money on the oils until we realized that we had fewer & fewer expenses this last year and a half by investing in better wellness for our family & using oils for so many separate products we would normally buy. And those little bottles of pure essential oils are so powerful so you use very little at a time, which makes them last so much longer than you’d think.

How to Know the Difference Between Essential Oils:

Here are 8 questions to ask whenever you’re considering purchasing from an essential oils company:

1. Can this company guarantee that the land used to grow their plants & herbs is free of residual herbicides, pesticides, & chemicals?

2. Does this company own their own lab to test an oil’s composition?

3. Does this company ever purchase oils from outside suppliers? If so, does the company visit the farms and oil distilleries to observe the process and make sure that there are no added chemicals to the distillation of the oils and that the herbs and plants are grown completely free from contamination with herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers?

4. Does this company only use crops that were harvested at their peak time? And if so, does the grower test to make sure that the crop is at its peak time for harvesting?

5. Does this company continuously monitor the process of distillation to make sure that the oils produced from the distillation contain all of the correct therapeutic components?

6. Can this company guarantee that oils are discarded and not sold if mistakes were made during the distillation process that affect the quality of the oils?

7. Does this company’s oil suppliers use extra solvents during the distillation process to extract extra oil from the plants?

8. Can this company guarantee that nothing is added to the oils during bottling?

Why We Chose Young Living Essential Oils:

10 Reasons to use Young Living Essential Oils

I have actually tried out several essential oil brands, but we decided to stick with Young Living essential oils with our family after extensive research for several reasons (listed above in the graphic & below)

Wide variety – Young Living has the largest variety of pure, therapeutic grade oils and products – after realizing how much I loved oils & all the ways they could be used around our home and to better our overall wellness in our family, I found the best selection of oils & products from Young Living.

Seed to Seal Promise – This is a 5 step process that Young Living goes through for every one of their essential oils & products. From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, they use strict quality controls to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended. They can guarantee that absolutely no pesticides or herbicides were used growing the oils. They even do the weeding by hand on their farms & use essential oils for pest control.

Length of Time that Young Living has been in business – after doing all my research, I really liked the fact that Young Living has been in business developing & selling essential oils for 20+ years. And every year it becomes more and more popular, so that says a lot to me about their reputation & consistency as a company.

How to Buy  & Save When Buying Young Living Essential Oils:

What's the difference between retail and wholesale customers

There are several options you have if you choose to buy Young Living Essential Oils. You can buy them directly through the website as a retail customer. You will need to head to and make an account as a “Customer”, so you can access the website. Then you can purchase specific oils that you are interested in.

If you’d like to save 24% off your essential oils every time you order, you will want to consider the “Wholesale Member” (or Distributor) option. You will get 24% off each time you order and all you have to do to keep this Wholesale Membership is to spend a minimum of 50 point value (this is around $50) every year. There is no obligation to sell anything at all with the Wholesale Membership. If you want to start sharing with your friends & family, you can do that with a Wholesale Membership but there is no obligation whatsoever – you just get to take advantage of this way to save on your oils each time you order by buying a Premium Starter Kit.

How to Sign Up & Purchase a Premium Starter Kit:

What comes in Young LIving Premium Starter Kits


If you’ve read through this long email & decided you are ready to try out Young Living Essential Oils, I’d recommend starting with the Young Living Premium Starter Kit I show above. You will get 11 of the most popular, most frequently used oils, as well as a diffuser and additional samples for $160. If you purchased these items separately, it would cost over $300, so it’s an almost 50% off savings.

In order to get a wholesale membership, you just need to sign up for any starter kit, but the Premium Starter Kit is the best value and if you purchase that, we will send you some freebies to go along with it, so you can make sure you know how to use your oils!

We really do feel that essential oils have changed our life for the better and we want anyone who buys them to understand how to use them, so when you purchase a Premium Starter Kit through  Thrifty Northwest Mom using the instructions below, we will personally send you  reference materials, a full set of bottle labels for the tops of your oils (they are labeled on the sides, but it’s nice to see the labels on the tops quickly, too) and a $20 Amazon Gift Card. This is so that you can purchase some extras such as sample/smaller bottles to keep with you & roller bottles to make your own blends or use your oils with a roller to make it easier to apply (I love to use a roller ball with my oils that I use daily). To get these freebies with your order, follow the steps below when you order.

What’s Included in the Premium Starter Kit + What Extras you’ll get from us::

Premium Starter Kit from Young LIving & Thrifty NW Mom

  • 5 ml bottle of Peppermint

The total retail value of this Premium Starter Kit is $300 but you can pay as low as $160, depending on the diffuser you choose.

Free Items you will also receive from us:

  • Educational Resources
  • Full set of Essential Oil labels for your tops of your bottles

Steps to Sign up for a Wholesale Membership & Premium Starter Kit:

1.  Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information. {Please use your laptop or desktop to sign-up, instead of your smartphone or tablet as it will be much easier.}

2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which are 24% more than wholesale).

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say:  2883211 (This is so that I can send you your bonus freebies!)

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. Again, I highly recommend the Premium Starter Kit with the Home or Dewdrop Diffuser, which is the one that contains the 11 oils and also the one which will get you the additional freebies from us. Those are the oils that I use almost every single day! You can get the kit that’s $160, or you can get a kit for $170 with a different style diffuser. (I have the Dewdrop diffuser just because I liked the look better, but they both work great)

6. If you already know that you want to be ordering regularly, then you can go ahead and sign up for Essential Rewards right there when you order your starter kit! It’s an awesome way to earn FREE oils with your order every month! It’s a completely OPTIONAL program, so if you’re just wanting the starter kit for now then you can just skip this part of the sign-up process. I’ll send over an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up.

7. Go through the checkout process.  Young Living accepts most major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

8.  After you sign up, FILL OUT THIS FORM letting us know that you signed up through this promotion, so that we will know to send you your freebies
