Essential Oils FAQs

I’m so thankful for Young Living Essential Oils. They have blessed my family’s wellness immensely. I joined Young Living Essential Oils as a distributor in January of 2014, when I ordered a Premium Starter Kit. I felt like a little girl opening that box! I had NO idea what I was doing, but I busted my box open and started studying. I do not go anywhere without these golden gems today.


are incredible for…

*supporting a normal immune system

*promoting restful sleep

*balancing the emotions

*easing occasional stress and minor anxiousness



My FAVE 10 Essential Oils!

Thieves, DiGize, PanAway, R.C., Purification, Lavender, Copaiba, Peppermint, Lemon and Frankincense. These oils are one of my family’s daily blessings. We literally do use them every single day.


Arm Your Home With Thieves!

Thieves was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. I cannot tell you enough good stuff about this oil blend.

The Thieves Household Cleaner is also an effective, economical and the ONLY cleaner that I have in my home. I use it as a veggie wash, toilet cleaner, sink and counter spray, mirror and window cleaner and more! Oh, and can you say “so long” to harmful cleaning toxins? It is awesome!

We also enjoy using Young Living’s Thieves spray, wipes, mouthwash, foaming hand soap, hand purifier and toothpaste.

Thieves hand purifier and spray go with us everywhere for potty seats, restaurant tables and for cleaning our hands whenever we get back in the car after being out and about.

Why Did I Choose Young Living Over All Other Companies?

LOT’s of research! I believe in Young Living, their incredible therapeutic-grade essential oils and their purpose to bring wellness and abundance to the world. I believe in their integrity and desire to provide the best possible 100% therapeutic grade essential oils for their members. I am so thankful to have chosen this essential oil company for our family.

I love to share and talk about anything related to faith, fun and fitness, so chatting about essential oils comes naturally. I want to share them with the world!

It is so easy to join Young Living and receive wholesale prices. There are no monthly order requirements or annual fees. Here are some frequently asked questions that may help clarify some things for you.


Why Should I Become A Wholesale Member?

Great question! This is a fabulous option that provides you 24% off retail price! As you use the oils and you share them with friends and family, you have the option {zero pressure!} of earning commissions when others join and purchase Young Living oils. Win-win!  Check out more information on this topic here.

Is there a monthly order minimum?

NO. You can just order what you need when you need it.

What kit do you recommend that I get started with?

I highly recommend one of the amazing Premium Starter Kits because it gets you the most bang for your buck! You receive the 10 Everyday Oils {that I shared below}, PLUS a 5ml Stress Away, PLUS a Roller Fitment which allows you to make any essential oil bottle a roll-on, PLUS 10 popular essential oils samples, PLUS 2 packs of NingXia Red, PLUS a Home Diffuser!! That’s over $300 value for $160! Amazing! It’s the best deal of its kind.

Sonia Mendez Premium Starter Kits

I just really want to use oils myself. Do I have to sell Young Living products to be a wholesale member?

NO. There are ZERO obligation to sell oils when you join as an wholesale member. However, if you ever change your mind, you can jump right in. 🙂 I provide business support and education to help you get your business off the ground should you decide to go that direction.

Are you POSITIVE there are no monthly order requirements?  YES!

Now, to retain an active account, you have to place one 50PV (personal volume) minimum order per year. If you miss that deadline, you can reactivate your account by calling Young Living Customer Care with a 100PV order. Sweet and easy!

If someone wants to join Young Living through me, what do I give them?

When you join, you will be assigned your own member number to give to your friends and family who are interested in joining as well.  Click here for more information on the opportunity and rewards.

Is there a way to save even more money?

Yes! The Essential Rewards program offers reduced shipping, credit for free oils and more! Plus each month there are great promotions for free oils when you place an Essential Rewards order. I love free stuff!

Young Living also has monthly promotions and sales which enable you to build up your “oily arsenal” on a budget.

What kind of support do I get after joining Young Living through you?

Well, this is definitely an EXCITING and additional incentive! When you join Young Living through me, I don’t leave you hanging or wondering what to do next.

Step by step instructions on how to join

Young Living Essential Oils:

Click here to begin the enrollment process. It’s super easy!


1. I highly recommend the Wholesale Membership. There are NO strings attached for being a wholesale member. You are NOT required to order monthly or anything. It is AMAZING! If you select “Retail Customer” you will not receive wholesale pricing, you will not have access to starter kits and you will pay retail cost which is 24% more than wholesale.

2. My member number is {1609214} to be place in both the Sponsor ID and Enroller ID spots. {This should already be filled in for you. ;)} Also, select your country and your language preference.

3. Fill out your name, billing address, shipping address and contact info. (The reason you are asked to list your social security number is for tax purposes. If you make over $600/year selling/sharing Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail, as is required by law. Young Living will never share this info with anyone.) Be sure to include your email address. If you do not, I have no way to invite you to the Facebook support group and I cannot support you as you begin your journey with essential oils. This support is vital for empowering you to use the oils to the fullest. 🙂

4. Create your password and pin which you will use to log in to your account and order your oils.

5. Select your enrollment kit order. This is where you can specify which starter kit you would like {I highly recommend one of the Premium Kits!}. You must sign up with one of these kits to become a Wholesale Member. To maintain your 24% discount going forward, you only need to spend $50 each subsequent year with Young Living on any product in their store. That’s it! You can also purchase other items at this time, if you wish.

6. Set up your *optional* Essential Rewards Program. Now don’t be confused by this next step. Buying one of the ER kits is not a requirement to sign up as a Wholesale Member! This is a rewards program you can opt into to start earning money back to help pay for your oils. At this point, you can skip this step by selecting “No, thank you. I plan on enrolling in the Essential Rewards Program later.” If one of the ER kits looks valuable to you, then by all means get one in addition to your starter kit.

7. Agree to the Terms & Conditions.

8. CONFIRM YOUR ORDER. I have had many folks miss this step and end up not fully checking out. To confirm, the tool will log you in and it will show you your order again and it will ask you to enter in your payment information again, then you will click the “submit” button. We wouldn’t want you to wait longer than you must for your oils to arrive!

9. Email me at with your name, member number and coupon code (WEBEOOIL) to receive your FREE 400+ page reference guide mentioned above!

That is it! Congratulations! Your oils will be on their way to your doorstep! Welcome to the amazing world of essential oils! You will receive a welcome email from me with a ton of resources and information to get you started.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me and we will have an AMAZING time of fellowship loaded with lot’s of laughter!  Promise!  I am just an email message away at and/or the ole fashion telephone at 803.556.5483 works great as well! 🙂
