Does earning free Young Living products sound too good to be true? Well it’s not. I receive free products from Young Living every month delivered directly to my doorstep thanks to Essential Rewards. Let me explain!
When you become a Young Living member (learn why I joined Young Living and how to get started here) you are then eligible to enroll in the Young Living Essential Rewards program. Essential Rewards is a completely optional auto-ship program similar to a monthly subscription box service (think Ipsy, Stitchfix, FabFitFun), only better.

With Essential Rewards you get to pick the products that will be added to your wellness box each month and you can earn free products as well! It is absolutely free to join. The only requirements to join are you must be a Young Living member and you must place a minimum 50PV order each month.
What is pv?
PV stands for personal volume. Each product available on the Young Living website has a PV amount as well as a price. The PV is usually the same as the price. For example, a 15ml bottle of Lavender is $24.25 (wholesale) and the PV for the same bottle is 24.25. But other items, mainly non-oil products like diffusers and accessories, have a PV lower than their price. For example, the Dew Drop diffuser costs $63.75 (wholesale) but the PV is only 38.25. So in order to stay enrolled in the Essential Rewards program and receive the benefits your total order must accumulate to 50PV each month. I hope all that makes sense. I’ve added a screenshot below from the Young Living website to help you better understand.
Below is a screenshot of my current Essential Rewards order. As you can see my PV total is different than my purchase total. The PV total has to be at least 50 in order to place an Essential Rewards order.
Essential Rewards Benefits
Okay, back to the good stuff. Below are some of the benefits of being enrolled in Essential Rewards.
- Free products (which I’ll get into in just a bit)
- Discounted shipping
- Access to exclusive promos and products
- Ability to earn commission (must place minimum 100PV order)
You can cancel your enrollment in Essential Rewards at any time without any penalties and you’ll still be able to place regular orders as a wholesale member without any problem. Plus, don’t forget, you get to choose the items that will come in your box each month (unlike most monthly subscription boxes). You can even change the date your order processes each month.
Below is a video from Young Living explaining how to edit your Essential Rewards order.
Earning Free Products
Finally! What you’ve been waiting for, how to earn free products. There are two ways to get your free goodies. The first is by earning points which can be redeemed for Young Living products. For the first 1-3 months that you are enrolled in Essential Rewards (ER) you’ll earn 10% back on your purchase. For example, a 100PV order will earn you 10 points which is equivalent to $10. For the next 4-24 months that you’re continually enrolled in ER you will earn 20% back on ER orders. For example, a 100PV order will earn you 20 points which is equivalent to $20. And for the next 25 months and beyond that you’re continually enrolled in ER you will earn 25% back on ER orders. For example, a 100PV order will earn you 25 points which is equivalent to $25.
You can use your points to purchase Young Living products anytime by placing a quick order. I like to let my points accumulate over a few months so I can redeem my points for a lot of products. That way it feels like Christmas several times a year 🙂 Watch the video below to see how to redeem your Essential Rewards points.
What is a Quick Order?
A quick order is an order you can place at anytime. Unlike Essential rewards, you do not earn points on quick orders and you do not receive discounted shipping. Also, there are many products that are exclusively for Essential Rewards customers that you are unable to purchase on a quick order.
And that’s not all. Young Living rewards its loyal Essential Rewards customers with gifts. When you’ve been enrolled for 3 consecutive months you’ll receive a 5ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality essential oil. When you’ve been enrolled for 6 consecutive months you’ll receive a 5ml bottle of Thieves Vitality essential oil blend. At 9 consecutive months you’ll receive a 15ml bottle Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea tree) essential oil. And at 12 consecutive months you’ll receive Loyalty, a brand-new blend formulated by Young Living Founder D. Gary Young specifically for Essential Rewards members! Isn’t that so cool? Watch the video below for more info!
And yes, there’s even more! Every month Young Living has special promotions available to ER customers. For example, you can earn free products when you place a 100PV order. You can earn even more free products if you spend 190PV. Basically, the more you spend the more free products you’ll receive. This months promotion is shown below to give you a better understanding. Below each PV total are all the freebies you will receive.
The graphic below shows how much you can earn and save when you combine the monthly promos with the essential rewards points. It can really add up!
More than just oils
If you’re concerned the minimum 50PV order might be more than you can afford each month remember oils are not the only things you can buy on Essential Rewards. You can also buy toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, vitamins, household cleaner, laundry soap and sooooo much more! If you’re already buying these types of products from Walmart or Target, stop and purchase them through ER instead. Not only will they be toxin and carcinogen free (unlike the products at your local drugstore) but you’ll also be able to earn FREE stuff! And it will be delivered directly to your doorstep. It’s a win win 😉
Getting started with essential oils can be overwhelming. Especially, if you’re on a mission to ditch the toxins in your home. But the best advice I can give you is to start slow. Start with one thing or one room. Start with your cleaning supplies and after you’ve ditched and switched those start in the medicine cabinet. And you just keep going through your home little by little. This is why I love Essential Rewards so much. It’s a simple and affordable way to transition slowly into a healthy lifestyle and create a toxin free home.
Whenever someone purchases a premium starter kit I always encourage them to enroll in Essential Rewards. It can really help you stay committed to using your oils and creating a better life for you and your family.
UPDATE 4/14/2019: I’M NO LONGER A DISTRIBUTOR FOR YOUNG LIVING. AFTER RESEARCHING OTHER ESSENTIAL OIL COMPANIES I DISCOVERED FLORIHANA, PLANT THERAPY AND EDEN’S GARDEN. THEY HAVE AMAZING OILS AND THEY’RE A LITTLE MORE AFFORDABLE THAN YOUNG LIVING. SO I’VE BEEN PURCHASING MY OILS PRIMARILY FROM THESE THREE COMPANIES. BUT I STILL USE YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS AND STILL BELIEVE ESSENTIAL REWARDS IS A GREAT WAY TO STAY COMMITTED TO USING ESSENTIAL OILS AND TRYING NEW PRODUCTS.
Although I’m no longer a distributor for Young Living I would be more than happy to answer any questions about essential rewards or about essential oils in general. Please leave your question or comment below!
