This is one of my favorite wellness balms made with Young Living essential oils
You will need coconut oil (1/4C), beeswax (1 Tbsp), and 15 drops (each) of lemon, lavender, and peppermint essential oils, plus a glass jar to store the balm. You can also get an empty lip balm container to put this in for on-the-go!
In our area we couldn’t find grated beeswax pastilles (like these), so we had to grate our own. This was no easy task, so if you can find some already in pellets or grated, it will make the process a little easier.
I had purchased two of these smaller 75 ml glass jars from Hobby Lobby in our area for $0.99 each (on sale, reg. $1.99).
Once you have your supplies ready, it’s time to melt the coconut oil and beeswax in a glass container with a pour spout (shown below). Heat it enough until it melts, and then remove from heat and stir in essential oils. Pour into the jar(s) and allow plenty of time for the balm to “set up.”
Remember, for on the go relief, you can also make LLP Balm with chapstick tubes like these! Then just keep it in your pocketbook!
How To Buy Young Living Essential Oils
Since I had used essential oils for years, it didn’t take me long to want to begin sharing these oils with others!
If you get a premium Young Living starter kit (which is, on its own, a really great deal at $150)…
How to Sign-up:
2. Check the “Wholesale Member” option to ensure the lower prices.
3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 1972233 (I have a freebie for you!!)
4. Decide on the starter kit you would like. The best value is the $150 because you get several extra 5ml. oils + a diffuser!
BONUS Step: (COMPLETELY Optional!) If you would like to earn 2 bonus oils this month, then get your order total up to 190 PV (different products have different point values). You could get the Start Living With Everyday Oils kit and automatically have 100 point value… then you’ll just need 90 more points to get the bonus oils. For example, you could grab an extra bottle of Thieves Oil at 33.75 points, 15 ml bottle of Lavender at 23.5 points, 15 ml bottle of Lime at 11 points, and the 14.4 ounces of Thieves Household Cleaner at 22 points (just pour one capful of the concentrated Thieves cleaning solution into a spray bottle and it lasts for a really long time!) All of those items will bring your total points up to $190.25 which will qualify you to get the two BONUS oils! (This step is completely optional!)

Frequently Asked Questions:
Does signing up make me a “distributor”?
Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.
If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).
Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?
It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it?
I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.
Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.
Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.
With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.
I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company.
Does Young Living only sell essential oils?
The answer to this one was suprising to me when I first got my starter kit! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils (for example, frankincense is absolutely wonderful in facial products), but there’s a wide variety of products available.
