Golden Drop Society

If you've been reading my blog for a while then you will know that I have been on a health journey for the past four years. My family and I have slowly adopted a clean eating lifestyle that is plant-based and full of good things like coconut oil (which is stable at high heats and perfect to cook with), green smoothies, and is mostly paleo (you can see lots of amazing and healthy recipes here). With keeping everything in balance we do like the occasional treat and adult beverage (don't worry!). For the past few months we've been trying a more holistic approach to our health. I am amazed by what I'm learning and experiencing with essential oils!!

Definition: what are essential oils? The oils come from the glorious, aromatic life force of most shrubs, plants, herbs, flowers, trees, roots and seeds. They are typically extracted using a steam distillation process that keeps their properties intact.

Once I had babies, I felt at a total loss of how to take care of them while they were sick and I also noticed that I was way quicker to reach for OTC meds than to try a holistic alternative. After a revolving door of office visits and viruses, I started searching for something else. Why Young Living? I have had a few wonderful friends share essential oils with me and felt confident that Young Living and their extremely pure oils were an amazing fit for our family. They are the missing piece to this whole mindset of good nutrition and overall wellness. I love that their products and oils are beyond organic, gentle and effective. They have no expiration date. They are safe for ingestion. You can read more about Young Living's Seed to Seal process here.

I am passionate about helping other mamas like me (and anyone else!!) create well being and health in their homes and for their families in a modern way using ancient techniques. I would love for anyone who is interested in learning about how to use oils to join me and help spread the word! It would be my honor to mentor you and support you through this journey. I will provide you with amazing resources and a community of like minded people. If you are interested in simply checking out this holistic lifestyle then you can request to become a part of my private facebook group here.

If you are interested in signing up with me as your mentor and go-to you can click this link to sign up as a wholesale member (does not mean you have to sell a thing!) or a retail customer. Members get 24% off retail prices which is incentive alone! You will also have access to the exclusive Golden Drop Society which offers daily support, inspiration, private classes, a monthly online magazine and a free bootcamp!

For wholesale (click here):

-  Think of this as a one-time Costco membership fee, only you get tons of amazing oils, a diffuser and so much more. Costco only gives you coupons. ;)
- No renewal fee; simply purchase a minimum of $50 of product (PV) per year and your account stays active.
- No order minimum! You can order whenever you like, as often as you like at 24% off retail prices.
- Although wholesale customers are called “Distributors” you are not signing up to sell oils and there is absolutely no pressure to do so! If you do want to make this a business I am happy to help you!
- You will receive a member number to share with friends and if they order using your member number, you’ll receive compensation. This is just a great perk because it's hard not to share the oils with your loved ones.

When choosing a starter kit I recommend the Premium Starter Kit (NOT International unless you are!). This is hands down the best bang for your buck and includes:

-  Everyday Oils collection (1 - 5 ml Copaiba, 1 - 5 ml Frankincense, 1 - 5 ml Lemon, 1 - 5 ml Lavender, 1 - 5 ml Peppermint, 1 - 5 ml Purification, 1 - 5 ml Panaway, 1 - 5 ml DiGize, 1 - 5 ml Thieves®, 1 - 5 ml R.C. $163 value) + BONUS Stress Away 5-ml (see how I use the oils here :))
- Home Diffuser ($88 value) - I had NO idea how awesome this thing was. It works as a humidifier, atomizer, air purifier and also has an optional glow setting. Perfect for little ones!! I have mine going in the kitchen all day.
- Welcome to Young Living booklet, Essential Oils at a Glance user’s guide, Distributor Resource Guide, S.E.E.D. Sharing for Success booklet
- AromaGlide Roller Fitment
- Two Lavender Sample Packets, two Peppermint Sample Packets, two Peace & Calming Sample Packets, two Lemon Sample Packets, two Thieves Sample Packets, Sample Packet Business Cards
- Two NingXia Red 2-oz. samples
-Distributor Agreement, Product Guide and Product Price List.

For retail (click here) :

- No starter kit required.
- Order products whenever you would like (but pay 24% more than a wholesale customer).

Both options are an amazing way to experience and “share” oils, but I doubt you will  regret enrolling as a wholesale customer (“Distributor”) because the starter kit investment is very quickly recovered with the savings off of the retail price.

Consider Essential Rewards: When checking out with your starter kit, feel free to select "no thank you" for the ER package because you can order whatever you want each month (does NOT have to be a package ever!). You get 10-20% back in points each month, you can purchase products that you would be buying anyways (shampoo, vitamins, toothpaste, oils) while hitting that 100 PV (Product value - typically one point per one dollar) to get commissions, get discounted shipping and more! This is the only way to make commissions if you are interested in building a business. Cancel anytime!!

Just go into your virtual office:

- Click on Essential Rewards
- Add products (does not have to be a package, order anything you like each month)
- Pick ship date (you can change every month)
- Click save until it says "Congratulations you have completed your Essential Rewards order."
