Why You Should NEVER Buy Young Living Oils From Amazon, eBay, or Other Third-Party Sites

Never Buy Young Living from Amazon or eBay

I am a price-checker by nature.  I am ALWAYS comparing prices before actually buying something.  In fact, I go to 2 grocery stores every week and know where I need to buy what items in order to get the lowest price.  I do NOT like overpaying, as I’m sure you don’t either!

So I KNOW it’s tempting (and normal), once you’ve decided you want to buy Young Living essential oils, to want to do a little price shopping!

Here is my Public Service Announcement…

If you purchase Young Living Essential Oils, PLEASE purchase them directly from Young Living.  More and more, people are getting ripped off by buying their Young Living oils from Amazon, eBay, and other third-party sites!

Just recently, someone posted in one of the private groups on Facebook that the latest bottle of Young Living Lemon oil she ordered looked and smelled like WATER, with just a hint of lemon.  She was going to call Young Living Customer Service and complain, until it came out she had purchased the oil off AMAZON.

She said the bottle was completely sealed – What she didn’t know was that people can buy lids that look completely sealed and push this new lid on a bottle of oil that has been TAMPERED WITH.

The group promptly gave her an education about what scammers are doing, because unfortunately it is happening more and more.

The Problem

On sites like Amazon and eBay, some sellers are either cutting the oils with a carrier or dumping them entirely and filling them with water, then putting a ‘new’ cap on before selling them.  And then, of course, they can sell the oils for a lower price.

Young Living stands behind all of their products, but they cannot stand behind product that someone has purchased, potentially tampered with, and then resold.  So if you did not purchase your products directly from Young Living, there is nothing they can do if for some reason you are unhappy.

This scam is particularly disturbing since many of Young Living’s oils have a ‘Supplement’ label and can be taken internally… I cringe at thinking of someone ingesting one of these oils that has been tampered with, purchased off Amazon, eBay, or the like!!

The Solution

The ONLY way to ensure you are actually getting genuine Young Living oils is to purchase from Young Living!!  How do you do that??  Get your own account, and begin purchasing directly from them!  You will also have the GREAT benefit of a support system should you need it!  And remember if you join my group and purchase the Premium Starter Kit, I will send you a free gift to you as well!  You will be getting 100% pure oils.  :)

If another Young Living member shared this post with you, you can create your account through them, just ask them how to do it.

Please trust me when I say this… if you are finding Young Living oils cheaper somewhere else, there is a REASON… and it’s probably not a good one!

YL Users – pass this along to your teams, as this is unfortunately still happening out there. So sad. Buyers beware!!

Update:  Members are no longer permitted to sell Young Living oils on 3rd party sites like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and the like.  So if you see someone selling oils there, know that they are violating their agreement with Young Living!  Just one more reason to buy straight from the source!

    So you are stating: “that Amazon is ripping people off” with watered down Young Living, Essential oils?

    • Angie says:

      There are some people selling oils on Amazon that are indeed ripping people off. Additionally, it is now against Young Living’s Policies and Procedures for members to sell the oils on Amazon and the like, I’d guess partly because this was getting to be such a problem.

      • Christine says:

        Yes cjm ~ it DOES happen and …. it is not exactly Amazon itself, of course, it is the people using Amazon to sell the oils.

    I saw someone selling 3 empty bottles of the rose oil for 25 to help people scam people…and it was shady that a 200 dollar oil was selling for as low as 85! (only 5 drops used they say)..its just disgusting.

    I wish I would done my research and found this post before buying peppermint essential oil through Amazon.
    The product I received was obviously watered down. Very disappointing, but now I know.

    Just the oils? Or the diffusers too? I’m looking into buying a YL diffuser…but I was leaning towards buying it on amazon. Thoughts?
