Signing up as a customer is free and you have no obligation to order. The minimum cost to sign up as a distributor is $40. The kit comes with a 5ml lavender and a 5ml peppermint, along with samples of NingXia Red and a $40 coupon for a diffuser! As a distributor you get 24% off of retail price! There are also several different "Start Living" kits that are wonderful to start in your new journey. The one I recommend the most is the Everyday Oil Starter Kit, which comes with 9 great oils that are wonderful for just getting started (in addition to the basic kit above!). You'll get 5ml bottles of Peppermint, Lavender, PanAway, Purification, Valor, Peace & Calming, Frankincense, Lemon, and Thieves! That kit is $150 (total, not in addition to the $40). If you sign up with this kit, or one of the other larger kits, I'll send you the Pocket Reference Guide so you can know more and start using your oils with confidence!
After that the only requirement is that you place a $50 order a year to remain an active distributor. There are other things you can do to earn free product (an autoship program) and even a commission, but these are the basics for now :-)
