Welcome Book HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR STARTER KIT!


WE ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU HERE! The Oily Studio community and all the other amazing ones you get to be apart of, strives to be a place of education, resources, videos, oily talk, encouragement, motivation, and friendships. Whether you are doing the business side or just enjoying oils in your everyday life, YOU ARE WELCOME. I wanted to put together this little welcome packet to help guide you in this new venture into the oily life! When you get your kit, it may seem overwhelming. I totally get it! When I got mine, I was so excited to just dive in so I opened every bottle and started inhaling… slow your roll here though because you will get a headache if you sniff too much, friend! Once I got everything out of the package, I sat and said, “Okay, now what? I understand that all these oils have helped other people, but how can they help ME?”. Don’t fret! The amazing communities you are a part of are YOUR PEOPLE! My goal and the goal of everyone in each of the communities for when your kit arrives is to make it a fun, non-intimidating experience. Let’s break it down, shall we?


all about oils There are dozens of ways to use each oil. Here are some of the most common ones.

COPAIBA Supports the body’s natural response to injury or irritation. Aids in easing common digestion discomforts when taken internally. Helps the body regulate its natural immune responses. This is also a driving oil, meaning it enhances any oil it is paired with! (got kids? get Copaiba.)

THIEVES Supports healthy immune function. Complements daily wellness regimes. Helps maintain a healthy respiratory system. Key component for the entire Thieves line of products by Young Living. Helps freshen stale air when diffused. Use a drop or two in a spray bottle with water for cleaning. (STOP right here, remove all of your cleaning supplies and make your next order all of the Thieves products, they smell like a crisp fall day and they are so much better than the Target cleaning stuff. 


Blends we love! CHILL OUT - Add water to the fill line in your diffuser and add 3-4 drops of lavender and 3-4 drops of stress away. DETOX - Add 1-2 drops of lemon to your glass of water. Lemon helps your body detox and flush out toxins. Make sure you are adding essential oils to a GLASS of water, not a plastic bottle. PEP UP - Add a drop of peppermint to your wrist for a quick pick me up! Or add 4 drops peppermint and 4 drops lemon to your diffuser for the same effect.


Blends we love! STAY HEALTHY- Boost your family’s immune systems by making a roller bottle bend of 10 drops thieves, 10 drops purification and filling the rest with a carrier oil. Apply daily to your feet at bedtime or before you head out for the day. Respiratory system weakened? Apply RC to your chest! Digestive system out of wack? Try Digize and peppermint diluted around your navel. RELIEVE IT- If you have sore or strained muscles, mix a few drops of carrier oil in your palm with a drop of Panway. Rub it on your sore spots. Copaiba is a driving oil meaning it enhances any oil that it is added to, so add a drop of it to your Panway for an additional boost!  NIGHT-NIGHT- Try a few drops of lavender on your feet at bedtime to promote restful sleep.  AFTERNOON DRAGS- Add a few drops of peppermint to your hands and rub them together and inhale.  FACIAL- In a small glass bowl mix 2 drops each of Lemon, Lavender, Frankincense and Purification with 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Apply to your damp face. Let it soak in for a minute or two and then wipe off with a cotton pad. Frankincense is great for fine lines and wrinkle and Lemon helps with sun spots!  BYE STANK- Add 3 drops of Purification to a cotton ball and place in your vacuum bag to purify the air as you clean. Or you can add 3 drops to your steam mop and make your house smell amazing and the stank be gone. 


How to use EO's I know this is a lot so just go grab a cup of coffee and come back and dive back in, we will be here waiting for you.

USING YOUR OILS TOPICALLY Supports healthy immune function. Complements daily wellness regimes. Helps maintain a healthy respiratory system. Key component for the entire Thieves line of products by Young Living. Helps freshen stale air when diffused. Use a drop or two in a spray bottle with water for cleaning.

USING YOUR OILS AROMATICALLY Diffusing essential oils is a perfect way to improve your home, work, or living environment. Diffusing can purify the air and neutralize mildew, cigarette smoke or other odors as well as protect you and your family from harmful things we breathe in the air. Diffusing can also help with mood regulation. To inhale essential oils

USING YOUR OILS INTERNALLY Some people are very comfortable with ingesting and others aren’t. It took me a little bit to be okay with ingesting them. This is a very personal choice and we won’t judge based on your decision either way. Not all oils are made to be ingested, so please refer to the label of each oil for proper usage instructions. NOTE: All “Vitality” oils are part of Young Living’s dietary oils line and are GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) and can be ingested if you choose to do so.

ALMOST DONE! Getting around in the Virtual Office and understanding the lingo can be a bit overwhelming. So, here is a cheat sheet that will help explain it all! OOS – Out of stock PV- Personal Volume OGV- Organizational Group Volume VIRTUAL OFFICE- This is your Young Living account home base. It's where you can view your orders, track shipping, order new products, check out essential rewards, and MORE! At first, the site can be a little intimidating, but take your time looking around and getting used to each tab on the left. They will soon become your best friend!  HERE IS A BREAK DOWN OF EACH TAB. DASHBOARD- Summary of your OGV, PV and rank. MEMBER NEWS- Deals/Promos/Alerts from Young Living MESSAGE CENTER- Messages sent to you from Young Living MY ORGANIZATION- Displays your PV and OGV along with each member of your downlines PV and OGV. QUICK ORDER- Place an order that is not through Essential Rewards ESSENTIAL REWARDS- We will go over this in a minute! MEMBER RESOURCES- Link builder to create your personal sign-up link.  MY ACCOUNT- Track orders, show profile, view commissions, and all kinds of good stuff!


Essential Rewards I know this is a lot so just go grab a cup of coffee, then come back and dive back in, we will be here waiting for you.

WHAT IS ESSENTIAL REWARDS? Essential rewards is a monthly subscription (similar to birchbox or stitch fix) in which you earn rewards points to redeem free products. It is completely flexible, meaning you are able to change the dates of your order every month, and change the products in your order every month. It is really a no brainer for everyone who orders regularly. A minimum of 50PV is required every month to stay eligible on ER, and 100 PV is required to receive full commissions (we will talk about that in a bit).

HOW DO I HIT 50PV OR 100PV? Have friends and family add to your order, this will boost your PV. “Transfer buy” YL has toothpaste, deodorant, cleaners, laundry soaps, vitamins and supplements, oils, granola, pancake mix, etc. Transfer buying is simply purchasing these products through YL instead of Target, Walmart or whatever your go to store is. You’re not spending more money, just spending in a different place, AND on things that are so much healthier for your families.

HOW DO I GET FREE PRODCUT? Each month you will earn points back that can then be redeemed for FREE product. The percentage you earn back will depend on how many consecutive months you have been enrolled in Essential Rewards. Months 1-3 on ER : 10% back in points Months 4-24 on ER: 20% back in points Months 25+ : 25% back in points You will also receive thank you gifts (as if they don’t spoil us enough!) at 3, 6, and 9 months and a special “Loyalty” blend at 1 year.


ARE YOU READY TO SIGN UP FOR ER? If you said yes to the above statement, let's get you all set up! 1. Login to your account with your member ID and password 2. Click on Essential Rewards on the left hand side of the screen 3. Then click on “edit monthly order” 4. This is where you are going to add all the items you want! You can do this by searching the product by name, or by going to the “select category” to the right of your screen. 5. Once you have hit the 50 PV/ 100 PV mark (it will show at the bottom of your order, make sure you are looking at the PV, not the dollar amount because some products don’t add up to the full PV per dollar amount) click continue. 6. Review your order and if everything looks correct, click “next step” 7. You can change the processing date that you want your monthly order to come out. This is helpful because you can either choose it to come out with all your other bills at the beginning of the month, or scheduled it to come out at the end of the month. Once you select the date, press “next step”. 8. Add your payment option and click “confirm my payment options” 9. TA-DA! You did it! Welcome to Essential Rewards!!  Can we talk about something? I really want to point out that Essential Rewards is NOT for jus those who want to join the business side of YL. Essential rewards can be for those who faithfully use their oils and want to receive #allthefreeoils through the promotions that YL offers. It simply makes sense if you are using your oils, wanting more oils etc! Please don’t feel pressured to jump into the business side right away. Also, if you are wanting to jump in on the business side later on, you can do so at any point in time! 


I WANT TO DO THE BUSINESS, HOW DO I START? We are SO glad you asked! In order to do this, you will need to follow the steps mentioned above. Once you do that, you will want to create your personal sign up link! To do this, follow these steps: 1. Click on member resources 2. Then click on link builder 3. Grab your link that they create for you and save it! You will send this to those who are wanting to grab a kit under you!! Once you grabbed your link, and signed up for ER, now comes the learning part! Let me tell you something though, the best part of this job is that you are your own boss! You can go at your own pace, sell as many (or as little kits) as you want with no pressure or quotas to meet. So relieving! All of the training information you will ever need is on Facebook in the different business groups I will add you to. It can be overwhelming at first, but the more knowledge you have about the business, the more you will succeed! Knowledge is power ladies! All of the groups that we have added you to are AMAZING! They are there to encourage and make sure you succeed. We are a family, all working towards the same goal! Please remember that it is important to reach 100PV on your essential reward order in order to make full commissions. Your ER order comes automatically out of your account each month and you can change your order whenever you want! So say one month you want to try this oil, but next month that oil. It is so easy to change! When I first started selling essential oils, I was very intimidated by the amount I needed to reach each month but the more I used the oils and products, the more I realized that I would be spending $100 each month anyways on these items, so the thought of turning this into a business just made sense to me! It really is a win, win all around.
