First off, you might be wondering what Essential Rewards is. Imagine Amazon and Costco had a baby, with Costco's membership and Amazon's easy ordering online with free and quick shipping! Think monthly subscription box. That baby would be Essential Rewards! Essential Rewards is Young Living's auto-ship program that allows you to earn points for your monthly order.
Tip: To have an essential rewards account, you first need to become a wholesale member and get a starter kit. If you are not a wholesale member yet, you can learn more on how to become one and how to get your kit here.
With Young Living's Essential Rewards program, you have to order 50PV a month to be qualified for the free monthly products. So once a month, your Essential Rewards or "ER" order will be processed. As you place your order for the oils/products that you want to receive, you will order points back to use on future purchases based on how many months you have been on ER.
What is PV?
PV stands for the point value of each product you order. Most of the time, a products PV is equal to the products dollar amount (PV=$). But for some special cases, the PV is lower than the price. Some exceptions are diffusers, Rose essential oil, and many other products including the Animal Scents Line because some of the proceeds go to animal organizations!
How do you earn ER points?
For months 1-3 you will get 10% back in ER points.
For 4-24 months you will get 20% back in ER points.
From month 25 on you will get 25% back in ER points.
Your points are in your account as soon as your ER order ships! To view how many ER points you have, log onto your virtual office and your points will be shown there!
What's the easiest way to earn ER points?
My advice is to take advantage of the monthly Essential Rewards promotions!
Monthly promotions are FREE products that you get for having orders worth 100pv, 190pv, 250pv, 300pv and occasionally 400pv.
The promos change monthly so to check out this months promo, click here!
What else do you get?
You get free milestone gifts from Young Living at months 3, 6, and 9 months. Then, at 12 months you get a special Essential Rewards exclusive Loyalty Essential Oil!
How do you sign up?
Like stated before, you have to be a Young Living wholesale member (if you aren't you can sign up here!)
If you are a member and want to join Essential Rewards, all you have to do is log onto your Virtual Office, Click "Essential Rewards" and follow the instructions! If you are having issues with that, you could call Young Living's customer service at 1-800-371-2928.
Once you are enrolled, it is time to access your ER account!
You have two ways to get to your Essential Rewards:
Once you click on that, it will take you to this page:
Here you can View your monthly order, your shipping address, your payment method, your processing day and your order history!
To change your order: click Change Order, there you can add/remove products as well as view your order! Always remember to save your order.
Your Current Processing Day is a day that you can chose. I like to make mine at the end of the month so I never forget to change my order! If you are ready to process your order before your processing day, you can click Process Today under Manually Process. This will process your order that day and your next processing date will be moved up until the next month.
You can change your processing day at any time
To change your order for next month, make sure you don't change it until after your monthly order for this month ships.
You can cancel your Essential Rewards at any time.
To use your ER points, you will have to go through a Quick Order.
You can only use your ER points on products that the PV=$. To know what you can use it on, you can look for the blue banner.
How to use your ER points
Step 1- Go to your Quick Order tab
Step 2- Add the products you want to your cart.
Tip: To use your ER points, only add the products with the blue banner, the products without the blue banner are not able to be redeemed by your ER points.
Step 3- Check out then chose your shipping address and shipping method.
Step 4- Select the items you want to use your ER points on.
Step 5- Just pay shipping! then you're done!

Occasionally, some Young Living items go out of stock. If you have one of those items in your ER order, it won't ship and the PV won't go through. This can cause your ER order to fall short of qualifying orders, commissions and free monthly promos! Young Living has a convenient feature so this doesn't happen to you. It is called PV Assistant. With PV Assistant you can add alternatives so if something does go out of stock that you had in your order, it will add one of your alternatives instead!
Here's how you set up your PV Assistant:
Step 1- Under Essential Rewards, you can find PV Assistant.
Step 2- Check "Yes, I want to start using PV Assistant."
Step 3- Enter your monthly goal. Your goal will be the amount of PV you want to spend every month in order to get the certain ER promos.
Tip: If you are a distributor, you would want to set your goal to at least 100PV. If you are just a wholesale member, you would want to set your goal to at least 50PV.
Step 4- Add your favorite products!
Bottom line, Is it worth it?
Yes! It's 100% worth it in my opinion! You get free products by getting products for your house! Some people might think "How do I even spend 50PV every month?" Well, 50PV is quite easy to do when it comes to ditching and switching toxic products in your house!
