Essential Oil Make & Takes
Over 60 DIY Projects and Recipes for the Perfect Class
DIY Make & Take projects for both beginner and intermediate classes. The recipes use the most beloved Young Living essential oils, plus options using only oils in the Premium Starter Kit.
Hosting a Make & Take Essential Oil party can be exciting and fun, yet completely overwhelming and very hard on your pocketbook. It is easy to go crazy making what we think will "wow" our guests by Martha-ing the party to death! You know the drill-clean the house top to bottom, create the most delicious oil-infused food, goodies, and treats, have Lavender Spa Lemonade.... And forget about dull make and take items-you go all out by coming up with 6 amazing DIY Make & Take stations all throughout your kitchen, dining room, and living room. You even have a great decorating station, complete with the cutest DIY labels, pens, and washi tape. You make plans to have your husband and kids all go to a movie to have the whole house to yourself. The guests arrive to the most fun they have had at an in-home party that they can remember. You socialize and laugh hysterically, make great oily projects, decorate them all to the nines, and everyone leaves with amazing products to try...and NO ONE buys a kit!
The sad reality is that this happens more often than not. Make & Takes, while very fun, are not IPAs (Income Producing Activities). There are two types of people who come to a Make & Take: current customers and potential customers. Strategically invite so you know which type of Make & Take party to throw. For ease of describing the parties, the Make & Take parties for newbies who are not yet customers will be referred to as "Make & Take 101." For current customers, these parties will be referred to as "Make & Take 102." The concept is to create a fun class for new people as an Oil 101 combined with an easy introduction Make & Take that only uses oils in the Premium Starter Kit (PSK). Make it super simple and easy. Do not overdo it. Resist the urge! For your current customers, you would also make it simple, but create a customer appreciation class where you teach a more advanced project and you introduce oils outside the PSK.
This book contains some of the most loved Make & Take projects and will help you determine which type of party they are best suited for. You will also notice the projects are made with oils from the PSK, or there will be a line item that suggests which PSK oil to use as an alternative. All item sizes are based on personal use. It is suggested you use the smallest size available. For instance, instead of using a 15mL dropper bottle, cut the recipe in thirds and use a 5mL dropper, or even smaller by using a 2mL dropper bottle. Make sure the cost for all items totals less than $3 each with all supplies. For the Make & Take 102, your customers would bring their own oils and you would introduce new oils for them to smell (but not use). Teach them how to add the new oils after class. If you would rather allow them to use your oils, it is very important that you make smaller sample-size batches and charge accordingly. Making full-size eye serums for everyone will get very expensive, and the goal is to have them purchase their own oils to make the project again after class.
