Dear Future Member:

We’re so excited that you’ve decided to join us! We know that this will be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made. Why? Because Young Living essential oils have the power to elevate, motivate, and inspire. In this letter, we’ve put together a list of five ways they can transform your life.

You’ll smell amazing

“You have to tell me what perfume you’re wearing!” You’re going to hear this a lot.

You’ll chuckle to yourself because it’s not really perfume at all. It’s the pure scent of Mother Nature herself—Young Living essential oils.

People are going to want to know how you smell just like a blossoming orange grove or field of brilliant purple lavender, and you’ll tell them that it’s because that’s exactly where the aroma came from! It’s the smell of 100 percent pure essential oils, derived directly from fresh oranges or lavender.

You’ll inspire greater physical wellness

Peppermint Essential OilYou’re home after a long day at work, and your gym bag is casting an accusing look your way. At the same time, that carton of triple-chocolate-chunk ice cream is serenading you from the freezer. You feel yourself take a step toward creamy indulgence when you see a bottle of Peppermint staring serenely back at you from the corner of the kitchen. You walk over, remove the cap, and inhale deeply—your nose tingles, your senses awaken. You apply a few drops to your neck and temples and immediately feel a cool, tingling sensation on your skin. You feel awake, alive, and suddenly ready to tackle what you know you need to do.

You change directions, walking right past the freezer, grabbing that gym bag, and heading confidently out the door. Young Living essential oils strike again!

A gym bag just isn’t complete without your army of oils. A few drops of invigorating Peppermint can be just the thing you need to do that extra pull-up or run that extra mile. A few drops of Grapefruit Vitality™ can be the difference between drinking a couple sips of water or the entire bottle. Keep them handy for those moments when a little motivation could mean the difference between going the distance or giving up.

They’ll help make your house a home 

Tangerine Essential OilEssential oils have a way of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. With just a few drops of Cinnamon Bark, Orange, and Clove, a dark, cold winter night can turn into a festive, cozy evening. With natural-home fragrances like this, you’ll find it easier to enjoy each day for the gift it is and spend more time cuddling and conversing than daydreaming of tropical beaches.

Essential oils can enhance even the most basic of daily rituals. Your little ones will love falling asleep to dreamy aromas like gentle Tangerine and enchanting Lavender. So when they bring home that crazy boyfriend or crash the car as teens, you can smell these oils and remember simpler days of story time, jammies, and butterfly kisses.

Make sure Young Living essential oils are a part of your family milestones and everyday activities, so with just a quick whiff, you can transport yourself back to your happiest, most magical memories.

They will spark your creativity

With essential oils, the usage possibilities are virtually endless. There are always more applications to try out! You might start by adding a couple drops to your moisturizer, laundry, or household cleaner. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself in a sort of essential oil Nirvana, covered in coconut oil and beeswax, vigorously shaking bottles of Peppermint and Lavender over a mixing bowl—and you won’t be able to stop there! You’ll start making DIY essential oil body butters, makeup setting spray, dry shampoo, even Christmas ornaments! Not to mention all the ways you’ll use YL Vitality oils in the kitchen.

You’ll need to embrace the fact that essential oils will become a key part of your everyday life, and the more you use them, the more you’ll wonder how you ever got by without them.

You’ll find a greater connection with nature 

Geranium Essential OilYoung Living essential oils are samples of the best that Mother Nature has to offer. In an increasingly fake and artificial world, they serve as a reminder of the pure and simple. As you use them in your life, your bond with nature will grow, along with your appreciation for the bounteous gifts it offers you.

Every time you reach for a bottle of Geranium over a synthetic perfume or use Orange Vitality instead of artificial orange flavoring, you’re supporting a world where man and nature live together in harmony, the way it was meant to be.

An old proverb says: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” You’ve just taken the first step toward a life filled with greater wellness, purpose, and abundance. Every person’s Young Living journey will look a little different, but there’s no doubt it will enhance your life. We are excited to see where this journey will take you!

Warmest regards,

Your friends at Young Living

    I’m frustrated!!!!!! I signed up. I’m an American living in Mexico. The Mexican site is all in Spanish, which I can read, and not all of the oils seem to be available. Needless to say, I haven’t ordered anything yet. Can someone please give me some help?

  • Cindy Brunetti

    I just joined your amazing team and I am so excited!! Just when I am burned out with my job as a Teacher Assistant after twenty four years, Young Living has given me a breath of fresh air. I can’t wait to learn more and attend seminars.

  • Oh, YL. I just wanted to use the oils for my family. When I bought my kit I had NO idea what amazing things were about to happen to alter my life forever. Within a few weeks I knew they worked, and I had to tell EVERYONE to go get some. And so while I was getting all of the goodness they offered to support wellness, I was inadvertently growing a business. So much so that I achieved the Silver in 6 goal and received an entire Aroma Complete for FREE!!!! And it kept going from there and I hit Gold and was able to quit my teaching job and focus on teaching natural health full time – being able to be at home for my family. And if the health and abundance weren’t enough – I have made the absolutely most amazing friendships through YL. I think that’s the best part – being in a group of like-minded people who share the same goals and values.
    So newbies to oils – get ready. When they say these little bottles are about to rock your world, they aren’t exaggerating!! THANK YOU YL and Gary and Mary for all you do for us!

      I copy and paste a lot of things to make them easier to read. Just highlight copy and then paste to an fresh page. Sometimes it will take a few clicks to get but when you do you can delete what you don’t need. I do this sometimes to copy something without all the extras on the page. Hope this helps!

  • Arlene Lawrence

    I wasn’t expecting to love Young Living essential oils, but I do! No matter what your journey is, Young Living is a great improvement in your life. No matter if it’s to take a few chemicals or as many as possible, Young Living can help! I’m just starting out, but Young Living is a huge step in the right direction. I am hook on these wonderful oils, and now working on making my cleaning supplies chemical free too. Also starting to make everything I put on my face, is chemical free. Young Living isn’t only for the young, its for anyone that wants to make good changes in their life.

    • The Young Living Essential Oils have changed my life!
      The seed to seal purity is totally real, I have the assurance that the oil is the finest quality, and the earth is respected in the harvest of Mother Earth’s gifts.
      I am so grateful for the hard work and vested passion all the Young Living family put into providing us these amazing oils and products!

  • Linnea LeBoeuf

    I’ve been involved with many nutritional companies in the last 40 years, but never have I experienced such excitement in sharing products like I’ve had with this one. I’ve always loved good nutrition, but with Young Living it’s more than great nutrition, it’s other wonderful health benefits as well. My outlook on life has had a positive change, as well. I want to share these amazing oils and fabulous household products with EVERYONE!!! Other than my relationship with God, helping people has become my focus….helping them feel better, look better and be better!!! If people will give these products a chance, their lives will be enhanced beyond measure! Thank you Young Living for changing my life and the lives of so many others!!

  • I believe, WordPress is to blogging is like Google is to web search… Your list of top wordpress powered websites is surely a motivation for more bloggers to switch to it!

  • Kay

    What is the difference between Grapefruit EO and the Vitality version of Grapefruit EO?

    • Young Living

      Hi Kay, The Vitality line of oils is the same 100% therapeutic-grade essential oils for which Young Living has become known. The Vitality line has been created so that members can now draw clear distinction between topical/aromatic use and dietary use. This should drastically widen the communication opportunities for Young Living essential oils moving forward.

  • Chris Deming

    I love Young Living because it is a company that is on the cutting edge of how businesses should be run. They care about the quality of their products and they care about people. Not only their customers, but also about pouring into amazing organizations and helping the less fortunate around the world. I know that every time I purchase one of their oils or products, it is safe for me and my family, and it is benefiting the world to be a better place!

  • Donna

    • Crystal Altic

      Are you with anyone Donna? Id love to help you; if not.

    • Hi Donna,

    • Hi Donna!
      Do you currently use Essential Oils or are you brand new to this health sensation? Would love to hear from you!

  • Essential oils open up a whole new world of health and wellness. Just under 2 years ago, I joined. I went to my first International Convention in 2016. Wow is all I can say!

    The more I learn, the more empowered I am to change my life and lifestyle for the better. Once you begin using essential oils, the more excited you become at all the possibilities. There really is no end to the application and uses you will find.

  • Lori

    I first came on board with Young Living because I fell in love with the beautiful aromas and pure therapeutic grade quality of the essential oils. Over the past 3 years, I’ve grown to enjoy all of the above, along with the effective and healthy way these oils replace harmful chemical products I used to use for both personal care and home cleaning, laundry etc. Young Living provides us with the tools to live our lives with wellness, purpose and abundance.

  • Carla Chaney

    YL essential oils also give your power back. Find yourself again. A little Believe and your world is right again.

  • hennie

    Never heard of geranium oil. Might give it a try since I can’t wear perfume because it can give me a rash.

    • I get totally relaxed with Geranium oil. Have you ever tried the combo of Lemongrass with Myrtle? They smell awesome together. And if a rash is of concern we use the aroma charms so you can smell them around your neck, and others can smell their sweet scent, and not worry about the rash. Also, put a dot of lotion on before the oil or perfume and that helps. I’m with you on this one.

  • Since using Young Living Essential Oils, I have seen a drastic change in my family’s overall health. We are in better moods and we have a healthier lifestyle. We incorporate the oils into our daily routine when we wake up and when we go to sleep and in between too. I have seen (and experienced myself) an increase in confidence in my family. Essential oils are exactly what we never knew we needed to positively enhance our lives.

  • You’ll be joining a community of like-minded people, a family! Families take care of each other and we help each other through difficult times. The oils offer amazing support as you opt for a healthier lifestyle!

  • Anne Hilbrich

    Pure happiness, and experimenting! I love to come up with new diffuser blends, and to find new non toxic ways to use my oils around the house.
