I also knew this could bring in a little money to help offset the cost of running the blog. I just never could have imagined just how much in such a short amount of time!
I have learned to never try and predict where my blogging journey may lead. From the beginning it has been full of unexpected twists in the direction of success because I am not one to turn down anything that points toward true opportunity.
This is one of those things I could have never predicted! Me “selling” stuff.
Thank goodness I don’t have to do any sales-y selling with this opportunity. As a blogger, I never have to host home parties or go out and pitch my products anywhere. I can simply weave essential oils into blog post topics I’d want to be blogging about anyway, and let the oils sell themselves! I simply have it available to those who are interested in them (and many people are), and then people can sign up under my number. It then becomes essentially a “lifetime cookie” for orders. Any time there is a a new order, I will get a percentage of the sale as the referring person. Over time, I continue to build members and it continues to grow. The only catch is that in order to get all of the commissions, I have to maintain a certain amount in my personal orders per month. I put this off until I had enough people ordering under me that it offset my personal order amount – this took about one month.
Another awesome thing is that it becomes a team approach. I added the sign-up to my site, and a few people signed up under me. The person that I had signed up under was at a stage where she had so many sign-ups that she was ready to spread them around a little so she moved some of them under me. She continues to benefit, and now I benefit as well. This “stacking” is a practice in our Young Living blogging team because it truly benefits us all!
I love the community I have found in my Young Living Facebook groups I was added to when I joined – we all help each other in so many ways. There is so much support and education, especially for bloggers! Since I joined an established team, anyone who joins me becomes part of that established team too.

It is not my goal to talk anyone into this. Please check out Young Living as a company and its reputation. Think about how essential oil content would fit into your blog organically. It really is just an extension of what we are already writing. Of course, now I have endless ideas!
