My path to natural living
Hi! I’m Katja. I grew up in Finland, have lived in several other countries, and ten years in the USA. I’ve used natural products as long as I can remember and tried keeping our home as toxic-free as possible. It has not always been easy, and in many places the natural products haven’t even been available. In some places – that’s majority what has been available!
When we lived in Germany 14 years ago, our daughter was born there, I even experienced labor and delivery using only essential oils as pain medication – in a normal hospital, administered by a trained midwife. The natural way of doing things has always intrigued me. I have visited many herbal medicine healing spas and farms around the world. For years I was bringing them home from my travels directly from the farms. Sometimes the products were good…. sometimes not.
Now I found a solution you might like too. With Young Living we can get our natural products – and
have make money to travel the world too! I joined Young Living over a year ago, and never looked back.
Seeds to make argan oil in Morocco. Drinking fresh watermelon juices in Bali. Our daughter and I tasting teas and coffees on a plantation in Indonesia. My husband and our children shopping for handmade soaps at farmer’s market in Lucca, Italy.
Start wellness lifestyle, help others and make money to make your dreams come true
I was so excited to join Young Living as a wholesale distributor. We diffuse oils for feeling better each day, and also have used them in cooking and in skin products (among many other uses! I use them several times a day). I love making my own body scrubs, DIY soaps and lotions, and knowing exactly what goes in.
I also don’t have to worry about other chemicals at home: we have been using the Thieves household cleaning products, dish soap and laundry soap and can literally feel the difference in our skin because we are not using any toxic chemicals at home anymore. Kids are healthier and it makes me happy. My husband Matt liked the Young Living products so much, that he even joined me in the business side a few months after I joined! Even our dog uses the essential oils!
There are lots of places you can buy essential oils, but I really love how Young Living is a trusted source and a pioneer in bringing the use of therapeutic oils to the United States. I love their Seed to Seal-promise.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are volatile liquids and aromatic compounds that are distilled or pressed from plants. Like the blood in our bodies, the essential oil of a plant is used to seal the cut, protect the wound, provide nutrients and oxygen for cell regeneration and guard against harmful microorganisms.

Join me in learning more about essential oils and how Young Living can bring wellness and abundance for your family. It came as a shock to me, that many of my friends are not just living better, but also making a living simply by using the essential oils and by sharing their results with friends and creating a business that gives them ultimately more time to do the things they love. Working on my Young Living business has been one of my most rewarding work, because I get to help people to transform their lives.
It is super easy to get started, in fact, our family had just moved from Europe to the USA, and we were living in a hotel when I ordered my Young Living essential oils starter kit! You can also just use the products for yourself – and never start the business if you don’t want to share your results with anyone.

Sign up now
If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below.
1. Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.
2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices.
3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2437916 (so that I can send you your freebies!)
4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes). They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.
5. Select which starter kit you want to get. My recommendation would be the Premium Starter Kit (and that’s the one where you get all of the freebies!)
6. I’d recommend skipping the Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. I’ll send over an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs).
7. Go through the checkout process.
8. Email me to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know you signed up because you saw this deal!
IMPORTANT: This promotion is only available when you sign up with the sponsor ID and enroller ID as #2437916 Also, if you recommend this promotion to a friend (or group of friends) and they sign up too through this promotion then please let me know so that you can get credit for referring them. :)
Does signing up make me a “distributor”? Do I have to sell?
Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.
Why to sign up as a wholesale member then..?
As a retail customer you will always pay the full price for all the oils, but as a wholesale member, you are able to buy Young Living products with a 24% discount. It just makes sense to sign up as a wholesale member from the beginning.
Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month?
Nope! There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.
If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).
Why should I buy from Young Living instead of other essential oils companies?
Good question, and I was thinking the same thing when signing up. As a blogger I am connected to thousands of people, and I have seen a lot of people in my network to have experiences with different essential oil companies over the past couple of years. I have read a lot of information about different companies, and I do recommend you do your own research as well. To me Young Living was a no-brainer just from the caliber of the friends I know recommend it, and how using the oils and selling them have effected positively in my friends and their families.
I can also say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me. Read about their Seed to Seal promise.
Young Living was the only company that has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown), could absolutely guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand), has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not), and only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.
Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations. Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.
With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.
I feel like it’s a trust step either way (anyone could be lying) but I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they are a full-disclosure company. ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company. I really hope to visit some of their farms in the future to see it myself.
How will I know which oils to use for what?
One of the benefits of getting a starter kit through this promotion is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils! A large group of people has already tested the oils for different uses, it really is easy to find different ways to use the oils. I will be sharing all of my favorites here on monthly blog posts.
Does Young Living only sell essential oils?
Nope! Young Living actually has an entire line of personal care products, supplements, meal replacements, energy drinks, and more! Almost every product incorporates essential oils, but there’s a wide variety of products available.
Why should I sign up with Skimbaco?
Yes, I just started on my essential oils journey, and am pretty green on the entire Young Living-thing, but I use the oils to make my entire family feel better. In the past couple of years while living in Sweden I started using more natural products and on my trips I got to see how herbal medicine is used all over the world. I visited a farm where they farm aloe for beauty products in Italy, in Morocco I saw how argan oil is made, and in Sri Lanka I learned more about ancient Asian herbal medicine. I bought natural oils on all of these trips, and loved using them. The oils can get pretty expensive when bought from natural stores, so joining as a wholesale member and saving the 24% of each product made a lot of sense to me.
On the business side if you are interested joining me in, I think I know something about community building and helping others to succeed, and I would love to help you to start your own online business as well. As part of my team, you would get all my online marketing tips I have learned over the past 10 years of working in the social media industry. I will mentor, and personally help you to make this a business for you, if that’s what you are interested in.
I also joined a specific group of YL bloggers, because I already had so many friends who were part of it, and you can join us too. So basically ALL the info needed to live healthier lifestyle with the oils is within an easy reach, and so is all the info to make this a business to get you income. It just was a no-brainer to me, and I hope you will feel the same way.
