Healthy & Natural
Young Living Essential Oils
I am a consultant for Young Living essential oils. I have been since October of 2014. I use the oils every single day for wellness (not to mention they make my house smell fantastic), so it wasn’t too hard for me to decide to jump on board. This company has no sales quotas in place so you’re not required to sell a certain amount each month. In fact, you can be a distributor without ever selling anything and continually get your 20 percent off discount year after year. That works for me because I’ll be buying the products for myself whether I sell any or not. 🙂 Note: During sign-up, you are asked to provide your social security number. This is necessary for tax purposes — you cannot get paid without it. However, the Young Living site is secure, so this is safe to do.
Interested? If you have questions about the registration process, please email me at anna (at) realwaystoearnmoneyonline (dot) com and reference Young Living. I will be happy to help you!
