What is Essential Rewards?

Essential Rewards (ER) is a free program that allows you to earn points on your Young Living purchases. You must be signed up as an Independent Distributor to be eligible for Essential Rewards. Why sign up for Essential Rewards? It’s a great way to not only receive the products you love every month, but to also earn points on your purchases that add up to free products!

I call my ER order my Monthly Wellness Box because of all the healthy goodies I select for it every month. You can change what goes into your ER order every month–I usually have a standing order of Thieves in the 15ml size, R.C. in the 15ml size, and then I add various oils, supplements, cleaning supplies, personal care items and kits (those make lovely gifts) as needed. You can adjust your order anytime before it processes and ships, and you can also adjust the ship date from month to month as needed. Need your ER products before the ship date, but don’t want to change the ship date for the next month? No problem, you can select the “Process Essential Rewards Now” button and your order will process that day!

What You Earn

The points you earn are based on how long you are actively enrolled in the program, and they can be used to purchase Young Living products.


  • 1–3 months: 10 percent of each Essential Rewards order PV
  • 4–24 months: 20 percent of each Essential Rewards order PV
  • 25+ months: 25 percent of each Essential Rewards order PV


What does that mean for my savings?

Since you’re already saving 24% on all of your orders by meeting the purchase requirements of being a distributor, by signing up with Essential Rewards, your savings over retail will be instantly deeper. These savings will grow based on how long you are in the program.

  • 34% Total savings the first six months.
  • 39% Total savings the next six months.
  • 44% Total savings for the remainder of the time you remain in the program.

As you can see, the savings and value really add up!

How to Earn Reward

Earn by signing up for Essential Rewards and buying the products you already do. It’s really that simple. Below are a few notes that might help answer any questions you might have.

  • In order to earn, you must be signed up as an Independent Distributor.
  • You must spend about $50 a month (plus tax & shipping). (50 PV)
  • If you wish to earn a commission check with all applicable bonuses, in addition to earning points, you must spend about $100 a month instead (plus tax & shipping). (100 PV)
  • There are some basic commissions that you are eligible for at the $50 level, but the $100 level opens you up to several bonuses, making it a much faster way to begin covering the cost of your ER orders.
  • Your monthly orders can be any combination of products that you wish—oils, cleaners, toiletries, supplements, etc. —so long as the PV value (it shows you on the order page) reaches the 50 or 100 level you wish to get to.
  • If you decide that you would no longer like to be in the program, simply redeem your points and then cancel by calling customer service. If you cancel before redeeming your points, they will be lost.
  • There is no fee for cancelling.
  • You are never under any obligation to continue in the program.

That’s it! The moment your order is shipped, you have points! Once you have been in the program for two months, you can begin redeeming them and enjoying the fruits of your savings.

Remember, you must be signed up as an Independent Distributor in order to enroll in the Essential Rewards program. You can read more about that here. More questions? Check out Young Living’s FAQ page about ER  here.
