The Good Smelling Home
To Purchase Oils
You could just buy a la carte and choose one or a few things you want to try. However, you could get a kit to start you out (which is what I would recommend) and here’s a quick walk-through of how to do that:
Sign up as a Member – for 24% of retail prices (recommended) this does NOT mean you will ever have to sell anything, it just means you are getting a starter kit and will therefore get 24% off retail prices! No monthly fees or commitments. Here are three kits that I would personally choose from if I was just getting started (Welcome Home Starter Kit, Popular Premium Kit or Thieves Starter Kit:
Begin with the basics! Under “Other Premium Kits”, this Welcome Starter Kit includes the most popular oils as well as a wooden oil rack:
- Frankincense, 5 ml
- Lavender, 5 ml
- Peppermint, 5 ml
- Valor®, 5 ml
- Grapefruit, 15 ml
- Lemon, 15 ml
- Lime, 15 ml
- Tangerine, 15 ml
- Wooden Vitality™ oil rack
- Young Living Lifestyle booklet
Need a diffuser to go with your oils? Choose one of the Popular Premium Kits and it comes with your diffuser of choice (I personally like the Dewdrop Diffuser or the Aria).

What is that last step on the sign-up page? Essential Rewards is the optional members rewards program! This is a FREE loyalty program. You can get started when joining or anytime after, but it basically gives you up to 25% back in product credit and exclusive gifts. You need to meet a monthly order total of $50, however this is basically rewarding yourself for making purchases that you would be making anyhow! Once you get started on oils, you will want to try more scents and more products (like laundry soaps, dish soaps, oils to make bug sprays, etc) so why not set it to a monthly order and earn money back!
How to Manage your Essential Rewards Order
1. Log into your account
2. Select “ER Monthly Order”
Here your can change your order, shipping address, payment method and processing date. You can also select “Manually Process”.
At the start of each month, I do an inventory of what I am almost out of and what I want to make or use this month (laundry soap, dish soap, citrus oils for diffusing, oils to make bug spray, etc).
3. Select “Change Order”
Use the search bar to quickly find items and add them to the essential rewards order. You will see a summary at the bottom of the screen. There you can delete items as well as see the free items you are eligible for as you hit PV (point value) amounts for that month!
**To gain benefits of Essential Rewards your order must total 50 PV or more. You get a percentage of that back to your account (to spend on “shop” aka one time orders/not essential rewards orders). See above graphic for percentages! Starts at 10% back and goes up to 25% the longer you participate! That’s free points to buy anything!
4. Once I’m sure of what I want this month, I save my order and then choose “Manually Process Today.” This will be your ER order for the month. There will not be another order on the “Processing date” for that month.
You will do this EACH month. IF you do nothing, whatever is in your essential rewards cart will automatically ship to you on the processing date.
I can’t wait to hang out once you start your membership and we can be crazy oil people together! If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on my instagram account or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
