8 of the Best Essential Oils Affiliate Programs 2019

Hello there my oily sea changers. Today I am going to take us on a journey through 8 of the best essential oils affiliate programs in 2019. Those of you familiar with the essential oils industry will know that the sales of these products is usually the domain of Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) programs – namely Young Living and doTerra. I will quickly explain the difference between MLM and affiliate programs below but for this post, we are going to focus on essential oils sales via affiliate programs only.

Now, there are actually a few out there – many that I had not heard of – so there is definitely an opportunity to sell them in this fashion. For this post, I have had a look through and chosen my list simply by looking at:

  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

So, let’s clarify the different between MLM and affiliate marketing then check out the 8 that I came up with…

MLM vs Affiliate Marketing

Although the difference is not huge, they can effect the way how you earn your commissions and have different membership requirements. In short, they both work as follows:

MLM

MLM programs are the mainstay of the ‘party plan’ world of products such as Tupperware, Mary Kay and Amway etc. and are also popular within the big essential oils companies. The process works as follows:

  1. You attract a visitor to your site and convert them to the sales page.
  2. They are offered an incentive to sign up as a member of the program (there are different names for this but they all mean the same thing).
  3. That new member is then placed ‘underneath’ you in a hierarchical arrangement
  4. You then gain extra commissions for everything they sell as well.

Affiliate programs

Affiliate programs are setup directly by companies that allow you to join and then refer traffic to them via customised affiliate links. You generally do not make any commissions for anybody you refer to the company and there are no minimal purchase requirements or up line pressure.

At the end of the day, affiliate marketers can be successful utilising either or both sales platforms. The main point of difference apart from making commissions from the sales of those you refer however is that most MLM arrangements require a minimum spend per month in order to qualify for those payments – for example, Young Living expect you to spend roughly $100 per month in order to earn commissions for other sales that you, or your down line refer. This can make things a little tight if your site is new and not making any money as yet.

Ok, so let’s leave the MLM world alone and check out the best affiliate programs for selling essential oils.

Big brand affiliates

Should you wish to stick to the bigger, more well-known brands but not be keen to join their MLM programs, then you can sign up through a different affiliate avenue. Amazon provides access to these products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the relevant oils within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

Amazon’s commission rates are nowhere near as high as some of the programs listed above (4 – 7%) however some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

How to find your own affiliate programs

Although I have listed 8 sites that I have investigated and found to be pretty good, that does not mean however that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online. All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine. (obviously substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

We can also start to narrow our searches if we wish:

Essential Oils Affiliate Programs - organic

Or even a particular compatible product:

Essential Oils Affiliate Programs - difuser

There are affiliate programs for everything else such as natural remedies, chemical free products and so on – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality product.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your oils is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.
