Wait, what? Are there really best practices for ordering Young Living? Yes, there are! When you rely on plants to produce your products, you’re at the mercy of Mother Nature’s natural processes. With over millions of customers around the world all loving on the same products, things can occasionally go out of stock. And let’s not forget Young Living is known for running some pretty fantastic promotions throughout the year. Here are some tips to help you order Young Living like a pro.
Order Seasonal Products in the Off-Season | Every fall and winter it seems the member favorites Thieves Hard Lozenges and Thieves Cough Drops go in and out of stock. To make sure you have these amazing products on hand when you need them, order like a pro and get them in the off-season like late summer. Then you’ll be prepared when you do need them. The Mineral Sunscreen, Insect Repellent, and LavaDerm spray can also be difficult to come by in the summer months, so look at purchasing those items in winter and spring.
Always have a Backup of Your Favorites | A few years ago, there was a sourcing issue which led to Valor and Peace & Calming being out of stock for a whole year! While Young Living works very hard to ensure something like this doesn’t happen again, this pro tip strongly recommends you have backups of your favorite oils you use on a regular basis. We definitely survived the Peace & Calming absence as I did have backups and we found several beautiful oils to substitute, but even to this day Peace & Calming is in my order at least every other month.
Essential Rewards | One of the beautiful things about Young Living is you do not have to order every month. However, their Essential Rewards program is so good, you might want to consider it. You earn points toward free product, you get flat rate shipping, you can change your order as much as you’d like, you choose which day of the month you’d like your order to ship, and your only commitment is 50PV (personal volume) a month. They have over 600 products from essential oils to household products to supplements to beauty to self-care. Each month you can gradually switch stores for those products over to Young Living and earn points back to be used toward free product. You start off with 10% back and after 2 years on Essential Rewards, you get a whopping 25% back in points. This is professional shopping at its finest!
NingXia Regimen | If you’re on a daily NingXia regimen, certainly you’re on Essential Rewards which qualifies you to enroll in YL Go. YL Go is a discounted shipping program where you pay an upfront fee and then when you check out, guess what? No shipping or shipping tax charges! It doesn’t matter what your package weighs. A 2-pack of NingXia bottles or a 30-pack of NingXia pouches can get quite heavy, but you don’t have to worry about paying higher shipping with YL Go. You’re definitely ordering like a pro with YL Go.
Free Promos | Each month Young Living offers free products for various PV (personal volume) levels, typically 100PV, 190PV, 250PV, 300PV, and sometimes 400PV. I just saw a graphic showing that if you had taken advantage of all the monthly promos throughout the year, you had earned $2,724.53 retail value in free product. Like, wow!! Pros like getting the biggest bang for their buck! Maximize your monthly order by reaching promo levels. Bonus Pro Tip: While I advocate for people having their own Young Living accounts, if you are having difficulty reaching the PV levels for the free monthly promos, you can check with people to see if they would like to add anything to your order to help you get there. Remember when I said Young Living has over 600 products? There is definitely something for EVERYONE.
November – Plan Accordingly | I’ve been with Young Living for 5 years, and every year their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals get better and better. Plan your budget accordingly so you can get your favorites and products you’ve been eyeing at deeply discounted prices. Now you’re thinking like a pro!
New Year’s Resolutions | Have you heard about Young Living’s Slique weight management product line? They even have a Slique in 60 program backed by a no-risk guarantee when you purchase qualifying Slique products for two consecutive months (you know, 60 days). As you can imagine, people have great success with these products so sometimes when you decide to hop on board, your selection might be limited. Plan ahead like a pro and get your Slique in December so you’re ready to rock the new year come January 1st.
