Essential Oils Make-N-Take Classes
If you are not sure how to promote the Essential Oils at a home party, here are some ideas that will help you.
An Essential Oils “Make-N-Take” class is the reunion of guest and friends who want to make cool D.I.Y. products using Essential Oils. These gatherings or parties include a lot of fun.[column col=”1/2″] There are two schools of how to present essential oils to new people. The first one is a by-the-book religious presentation of essential oils. What they are, where are they coming from and what can they do for you. Usually, the only products that are presented are the essential oils and water mixed with a few drops of peppermint.
This approach was the one that has worked for the past 20 years and still work today, but it’s much a copycat of other “home party” like Avon, Tupperware or Herbalife. And you are NOT a Herbalife distributor!!
The other way is to do a real party, where there is a real exchange, not just someone teaching a group of people a boring lecture about essential oils.[/column] [column col=”1/2″] [/column] If your upline does not have these new parties, you will need to start your own from scratch because they are definitively a lot of fun. We are talking about 2-3 hours non-stop talking about the essential oils, it’s a good time. During that party, your team can share stories, favorites, and reviews of the favorite Essential Oils and products. Of course, you will need the help of your upline, but if you decide to host your own Make-N-Take, I highly suggest getting your team together for inviting prospects, so more people can come.
First, what about Food:
It’s not really recommended to propose food during those parties, because you are not having a party to eat, but to make products with Essential Oils. However, it’s always a good idea to do a list with your friends or another person from your team and let everybody know what food and wine to bring. Don’t buy all the ingredients yourself for the make n take food and supplies because this can add up. Additionally, if this is your first Make-N-Take it could be time-consuming. But keep in mind the number of hours spent planning decreases the more you do these.
Here are a few ideas about what kind of food to bring:
- Southwest Pinwheels
- Cheese, Pepperoni, and Crackers
- Vegetable Tray
- Mini Sandwiches
- Peppermint Brownies
Make N Take Recipes. You are not sure what can people make at your party? Here are some easy examples.
- Cleaning Spray with Thieves
- Hand/Body Lotion
- Lavender Scrub
- Vapor Rub
- Scented Candles
- Coconut Shampoo
- Charcoal Mascara
- Hand Sanitizer
- Throat Spray
Of course, for each of these DIY recipes you will need to buy in advance the container, the ingredients and the essential oils that you will blend.
Here are tips for purchasing these products:
TheEssentialTools.Com definitively has all the vials, pipettes, beakers, containers and accessories that you will ever need. Of course, you will need to place an order at least several days in advance (10 is a good number).
Ordering the Essential Oils:
Order your Essential Oils for the Make-And-Take with your Essential Rewards order and change the order date to at least three weeks before your Make-N-Take party! I recommend you place your order three weeks before just in case the essential oils are not available (it’s often the case), or the shipping is slow. You want to make sure your oils get there in time. Of course, there is alway the possibility to do an overnight shipping but you will be paying an extra $30.00 to $60.00 more, so plan in advance and you’ll save a lot of money!
Buying all the Ingredients:
You can purchase your ingredients from everywhere! TheEssentialTools.Com, Amazon, Whole Foods, even massage stores. You might end up going to multiple places to find the ingredients at the best deals, especially since some ingredients are very specific.
Now that you have the items, the wine, and the food, it’s time to invite and follow up with guests!
Here’s how you can invite people:
- Call/text friends and family to come
- Invite Facebook friends to the event
- Network outside of your immediate circle and invite new people (very important)
- Use meet-up, on the internet
- Invite your current downlines, customers and distributors
It is important to follow up with all the guests a couple of days before the Make-N-Take party. You can reach them by text or email and ask them RSVP. By doing this, you have somehow an idea or an approximate head count on how many people are going to be at your essential oils party. You need to do this to double-checking if you will have enough inventory, supplies, and essential oils. It also serves as a good reminder to your guest in case they forgot.
Pricing for Items at Make N Take:
People need to pay for what they will take away. The idea is not to make money out of the party, but to have a balanced budget. At a Make-N-Take, each product should be at least $5.00 to cover the costs of your supplies plus 15 cents per drop of oil someone used. You will need to count and calculate and add it to their pricing.
Accepting Payment at a Make-N-Take:
Cash is always the easiest but for the people who did not bring cash you can accept payment via PayPal. You just give them your email address, and they send you money in 10 seconds. There is also the Square option.
Doing Make-N-Takes around the holiday period allows you to get a bit creative and have fun. Christmas is always about health and wellness. Products like cough drops and vapor run and Valentines is more geared toward foot scrubs and love potions.
