CARE FOR YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS
Caring for your Essential Oils
Like anything, we all need to learn how to store and care for our precious essential oils! To help you get started, we have put the below together for you!
Probably the most basic fact to consider when storing your essential oils is to keep them in dark coloured bottles.
Dark coloured glass bottles protect the oils from the sun's ultra-violet light. Emphasis on GLASS because essential oils can melt plastic bottles.
Having them in dark colored glass containers does not mean that you can leave them under direct sunlight, like beside your windows. This can speed up the process of oxidation. Have your essential oils stored in a cool dark place and away from children.
During the summer, to avoid oxidation, you might want to get a storage box to for your essential oils to have them all in one place and to keep them protected from any sudden change of temperature. For the winter season, if for some reason your oils solidify, just warm them up using your hands, give a little shake and you can use them right away.
We all want to bring our oils wherever we go, so when travelling, since essential oils are in glass bottles, you have to invest in a carrier case to avoid breaking them and spillage. You can also bring them during flights and use a smaller carrier with inserts to keep your bottles in place.

And last but not the least, one thing that you should never forget, essential oils are flammable, therefore you should never leave them near sources of ignition such as cookers, fires, candles or any naked flame.

Why Young Living Oil
Essential Rewards FAQ
What products do I need to Get Started?
To start with we suggest a starter kit for a wholesale member. A Premium Starter Kit (PSK) is a good option as it is the most cost effective way to get a variety of different oils so you can begin to explore the essential oils world. A diffuser is also included which adds extra value.
What to do once sign up?
Ensure you regularly check your emails for confirmation that your order has been processed and shipped. Once your order has arrived please take the time to review all items are there as per your order. If there are any resource materials such as Product Guides and Price Lists read through for information and useful tips on how to use each of the oils.
Most, importantly HAVE FUN in the Young Living community!!!
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
To remain a wholesale member, you are required to do a 50 PV (Personal Volume) per year. If you are putting regular monthly orders through, the Essential Rewards (ER) program is an excellent option that can earn you gifts and discounts on ER kits.
Retail members have no minimum purchases and can order whenever it is convenient for them.
How to use Essential Oils (EO)?
Each essential oil bottle is labelled with directions on how that oil can be used. Please consult with the directions on the label before using. The Product Guide also has helpful information on EO uses. Please note that directions can vary depending on the oil and how applied e.g. topically.
What does “Carrier Oil” mean?
A carrier oil is a vegetable oil such as coconut oil, grapeseed oil or olive oil that can be used to dilute essential oils. Young Living has the V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex which is a great carrier oil to ensure that applying EOs is comfortable.
What if I experience skin irritation?
Before applying any EOs to the skin we suggest a patch test prior to use. This means that you apply 1-2 drops of oil to a patch of skin such as the forearm. Observe the skin for 1-2 hours for any reaction. If you experience a hot or burning sensation apply a carrier oil such as the V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex to the affected area.
Do not use water to remove the oil from skin as can cause more irritation, a carrier oil is best to alleviate the discomfort. Before using the EO again, dilute the oil with a carrier oil and try a patch test again.

Young Living offers shipment of products on a Not For Resale (NFR) basis. This occurs mainly in countries where Young Living is not officially registered e.g. where there is no Head Office, and where legally allowed to operate and ship to.
