If you are familiar with the latest trends, you know people are interested in natural products. Consumers are looking for healthy, natural products for their homes, bodies, and even their pets. Essential oils are high on the list. In this article, we will show you how to start an affiliate marketing business selling essential oils online.
What’s The Best Way To Create An Affiliate Marketing Business?
The answer is simple; go online. The Internet is the best platform to find people who are passionate about the same things you are. Let’s face it. Constantly asking friends and family to purchase your products can grow old very quickly. If essential oils are your passion, then you need to find others who are like minded.
- Choose a niche within the essential oil industry
- Build a website-We can teach you how to build a website for free
- Choose essential oil products to feature on your site (Young Living Essential Oils, doTERRA Essential Oils, etc). There are many different companies, brands, and qualities of essential oils. Do your research before you settle on the brand you want to promote. Make sure the oils you choose to sell are 100% pure and of therapeutic grade.
- Research your content and make a list of content topics
- Publish your website
Why Sell Essential Oils Online?
- When thinking about beginning an affiliate marketing business, it is important to do a little research. A 2015 Zion Research report predicts the Global Essential Oil Market is set for rapid growth–to reach USD 9.8 billion by 2020
- We conducted a simple key word search to find out how many Internet searches were being made per month for essential oils.
Any number above 5,000 searches per month is a profitable niche. As you can see from the results of our search, there are over 160, 000 searches per month for essential oils!

How Can You Make Money With Essential Oils?
Perhaps you have heard of companies such as Young Living and doTERRA. These are two of the biggest companies in the essential oil industry. Personally, we prefer Young Living; however, doTERRA is also a good choice.
How To Make Money With Direct Sales:
- Join the company and become an independent business owner
- Sales and earnings are shared with the person who recruited you into the business–we never had much success with this business model; however, we know many people who have had great success

What Is An Affiliate Marketer?
In a nutshell, an affiliate marketer is a freelance advertiser. Companies like Amazon, VitaMix, and Payless offer free programs for people like you to advertise their products online. The beauty of these programs is you get paid a commission on every sale you make.
We did a Google search for “essential oils+affiliate programs.” Here are 4 samples of programs we found.
Please Note: We have not personally used any of these affiliate programs; images are intended as examples only.
Your commission depends on the products you promote. However, most companies offer between 4%-50% of the sale.
Features of an Affiliate Marketing Program:
- No product inventory to keep track of
- Credit card sales or secure purchases are nonexistant
- You won’t have to be a people person
- The company whose products you promote is responsible for returns, refunds, and unhappy customers
Your only responsibility is to promote the product and direct people to the vender’s website.
