Neal's Yard Remedies Organic Review – Thinking of Joining? Don’t Until You’ve Read This

So, you want to build a flexible business skincare and considering joining Neals Yard Remedies Organic (NYRO)? Perhaps, you're a stay at home mum with small people to care for and need flexibility in your work. Are you a therapist looking for clean ethical, premium products to promote in your existing business? Would you love to supplement your existing income by adding an additional income stream? Whatever your "why" for wanting to join Neal’s Yard Remedies is, I bet the biggest questions on your lips are: will joining NYRO actually be profitable to me? Is it really a viable business, even to a total newbie?  You want to hear from a someone in the know, a juicy Neal's Yard Remedies Organic review. I know, I've been in your shoes and spend many an hour scouring the Internet for answers. After much research, I took the plunge and joined NYRO and now possess insider information.  In this post, I'm going to impart my experience to help you decide of NYRO is right or you. Keep reading to discover everything you ought to know before joining Neals Yard Remedies yourself.


Ethical, Organic and Natural: A Business with Heart


Chances are you've already browsed the Neals Yard Remedies Organic website and familiar with their philosophy, so I'll keep it brief. Like myself, NYR are passionate about transforming peoples lives by empowering them to live healthier lives through harnessing the power of nature. Oh yes, these folks are on a mission to change the world one blue bottle at a time. Whats more, is their products are free from the nasties which saturate most other products out there. Yay! You'll fine NO petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances or parabens or GMO shite in NYR goodies just good organic natural ingredients.

Approximately, 95% of NYR products are created by hand down in beautiful Dorset, UK using Soil Association Certified Organic ingredients that have been ethically and sustainable sourced. Awesome! NYR have never tested on animals, only willing human beings, that, for me, gains them extra brownie points. To save me jabbering on about just how impressive this company seem and I've included a short video instead. This mini motion picture provides a succinct insight into what NYR are all about. Even if you are already familiar, it's still worth a watch if you are considering joining. I must say, I like the subtle dig at the large corps and paying tax - watch carefully for that part!


  • Natural, Ethical, Sustainable
  • Soil Association Certified Organic Ingredients
  • NO Petrochemicals, Parabens, Synthetic Fragrances or GMO ingredients
  • Eco - Friendly and Never Tests on Animals

But is This an Auto Ship Program?

Automatic shipping programs can be leave folks out of pocket and lumped with stock they can't shift. This has held me back from joining companies in the past. Well, thank Gaia, Neals Yard Remedies Organic is NOT like that! With NYR you will NEVER be subjected to automatic shipment of products, you buy what you want, when you want. The only stipulation is that consultants place an order worth 50pp (approx £85) over each 3 month period in order to retain their consultant status. If you already have a blue bottle habit, like me, you'll do this with ease.  Of course, if your goal is to earn some decent cash you'll have to grow your business to reap the rewards and your upline can help you with that.

The only inventory you'll have is that which comes in your starter kit and whatever you choose to buy thereafter. Here's little secret though, although there's no requirement to keep an inventory, clever consultants will keep a small stock of catalogues, samples and host gifts to ensure they never miss a chance to share the blue bottle love! Chances to grow and share your NYR business pop up in all kinds of unexpected territories, it's just smart to be prepared.


  • No auto shipping
  • No inventory required
  • No minimum monthly orders

Is NYRO legit? How Much Can I Make?


NYR are totally legit, they've doing business 35 years, a strong confirmation of a legitimate organisation. The genuine inquiry is: what amount of cash would you be able to make? Give me a chance to begin by saying: no pay is ensured, there is a possibility you'll make nothing at all but that is true for any business venture. You gotta sow the seeds and grow them before you reap the harvest, you get me?? I know my joining charge has paid for itself a few times over since I began only 12 short months back.

NYR pay on a commission premise offering 25% of all your sales paid monthly by direct bank deposit. The amount you'll be paid depends altogether on the amount of sales made in a given month - the earning potential is limitless. To get a clearer picture of what this means, here's an example:

Let's say you want to earn £500 a month with NYR. On average consultants make £50 - £75 profit per party/event. So to hit that £500 goal you'll be looking at 8-10 parties/events a month. Of course, you can adjust these figures to make goals to suit your desires and set yourself new challenges.  Consultants also enjoy a 25% discount on products, can earn free products and take part in team competitions and giveaways. Pretty awesome huh?


  • NYR has a solid company track record of 35 years in business!
  • Earn 25% on all your sales
  • 25% consultant discount
  • Get paid directly into your bank account
  • No cap on earning potential

What about Training and Support?

NYR support their Consultants to be successful with with their business and the NYRO community is vibrant and helpful.  The best part about this is all training is FREE to access and regularly available at venues throughout the country.

I particularly appreciate the webinars and live training that regularly occurs in our Facebook amass by means of YouTube including Q&As with replays accessible to watch whenever.  As a home educating mother with a toddling boob monster and often working away husband, this "distance training" has been priceless because as you can imagine I haven't yet had the opportunity to attend in house training. Our NYRO team Facebook group is super friendly, full of fantastic information and I feel grateful to be a piece of such a knowledgeable and eclectic mix of individuals.

One thing is for sure when you join NYRO, you'll have as much support as you desire and access to everything you need to be successful in your business and you don't need to have any previous experience to get started.

  • Marie says:

    Hello, Is it possible to build a team internationally?

  • Cat says:

    Hi Lace, I’ve actually just joined but unclear about something. If a customer buys through your personalalised website, is that bought and delivered from NYR direct and you receive a commission or do you have to buy the stock and then they can only order what you have in?

    • Lace says:

      Hi Cat,

      Thanks for your question. When a customer orders via your replicated website you will get your commission paid directly into your bank account on a monthly basis.

      I hope that helps,


      • Cat says:

        Thank you… So, if I only sold through promoting my website initially, I wouldn’t have to buy any stock other than the original start up pack?

        • Lace says:

          That’s right.

          If you do parties or events you just take orders and place those orders through your consultant login area. These can then be delivered to you to distribute or the individual customer(s).

          Hope that clarifies things for you.


          • Cat says:

            Oh great, thanks, I was worried I’d have to buy lots of stock x

          • Lace says:

            Nope but it certainly comes in handy to have a few products, especially a diffuser, to showcase to your customers at parties and events.

            Remember, you can contact your up line for help and support too.

            All the best on your new venture,


  • Mandy says:

    That was the first clear review that I have found that answered my questions! Thank you for that!

  • can you call me please

  • Mamta says:

    Hi Lace
    I’m interested in joining as I love the products. What happens if you don’t manage the £85 every 3 months? The lady on the stall told me it was per year!
    Many thanks

    • Lace says:

      Hi Mamta,
      The products are awesome, it’d be great to have you on board. In answer to your question, if after 3 months of no orders you’ll be considered inactive (no real effects unless you have a team).

      If no orders are placed for 12 months straight, consultancy status lapses and consultant discount is significantly reduced. There are simple steps to reinstate consultancy which I’m happy to discuss if needed.

      I hope that clarifies things for you. Any more questions just give me a shout, Mamta.


      Ps. The £45 mini kit joining offer ends tomorrow!

  • Hayley says:

    Hello Lace

    I have been reading your thread and really appreciate the information you have provided. It has made me seriously want to become a consultant.

    I see it says the starter kit offer has been extended and I would like to take this up but I clicked on the link provided which took me to the website and it is shown as £95 with no mention of the special offer?

    Many thanks

    • Lace says:

      Hi Hayley,

      Awesome to hear from you and that you are interested in becoming an NYR Organic Consultant! I am really sorry this joining offer finished at 9am this morning, I am just about to update my post to reflect this. Sorry, you missed it this time, £95 is still a great price for what you’ll get though. If you would like to keep up to date on NYR offers and be first to know about the next joining offer jump on my mailing list and I shall keep you posted.

      Warm wishes and look forward to having you onboard in the near future,


  • Rebecca says:

    Hi, I’ve been considering this for a while but because of my confidence when it comes to sales I’m hesitant. Is the main source of income as a consultant in hosting parties or are there other options e.g. selling to businesses (salons, independent shops ….), or online maybe? Thanks, Rebecca

    • Lace says:

      Hi Rebecca, thanks for stopping by and great question. Direct sales can seem daunting, I know I ummed and ahhed about joining too because of this.

      People say the best way to sell NYR products is face to face, this isn’t just via parties though. You can sell via promoting online via blogs (like me), social media (also like me) and to business eg salons, therapists etc (I these too!). I know it’s possible to leverage all these platforms and earn. Over time you’re confident will grow and your love for the products will shine and when that happens, anything is possible.

      We have a great team and I’d happily give you one to one support in your venture if you decide to go for it.

      Do give me a shout if you need any further, Rebecca.

      PS you can join for just £50 until August 31st.

      Warm wishes,


  • Anna says:

    I am in love with this brand. I have been using their essential oils and masks for ages! I love the smell, the texture, my skin always feel hydrated and soft. They are quite expensive but this is the price to pay to have shining skin.
    I also love that they use organic ingredients. With our pollution our skins already observe a lot of toxins, so the last thing you want is to put more toxins and stress on your skin!
    I very recommend this company!

    • Lace says:

      Hey Anna! It’s great to hear you’re a Neals Yard Remedies fan. I’d agree that paying a premium for great quality products is much preferable to putting additional toxins on our skin. I find these products last a long time so they’re actually not that expensive in the long run. As you mention, the feeling they leave on the skin is just lovely. Certainly makes me skin smile too!

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

  • sarah says:

    Great advises and guide about neal yards and starting our own business, It is best for mums or a person who wants a second income. Great review and explanation. As I read, I came to know it doesnt even cost alot of money to start with, so, what a great opportunity for people who are interested in starting their own business.

    • Lace says:

      Thank you for your comments Sarah. Neals Yard can be a great solution for busy mums or those wanting extra cash for sure. The low start up and ongoing costs are definitely appealing.

  • stefanie says:

    Hi Lace, I absolutely love Neals Yard products. We sell them in the herbal apothecary where I work and we have loads of testers so I get to sample all their goods. I especially love the frankincense night cream. Heaven! Since switching to organic make up and facial creams I have noticed such a massive difference in my skin it really is unbelievable. That and lots of healthy food of course! I would never go back to using harsh chemicals on my skin anymore as even the most expensive brands (I won’t name any names) are laden with chemicals that will only age you further in the long run. At least by joining Neals Yard you are doing something good for people and the planet.

    • Lace says:

      Ah your work place sounds awesome Stefanie! It’s great to hear you’re a Neals Yard fan too. The frankincense creams are just beautiful aren’t they. My skin loves it too. Once you go natural you don’t go back that’s for sure. The benefits are just too good! Thank you for your comments.

  • Penelope says:

    Very cool that you can review this from your own experience in selling and marketing these products. I love the idea of businesses like “Avon” and “Mary Kay” – which have given so many women financial independence. Cool to see the same concept has extended to high-end skincare and relaxation products.

    • Lace says:

      Absolutely Penelope! I was drawn to Neals Yard because of their health friendly products and its a good honest way to make an income being part of that.

  • Melissa says:

    Hi and thanks for your honest review of Neal’s Yard. I can always appreciate a review that talks about some cons as well, so thank you for that. It is refreshing.

    I like that the products come in recyclable containers. The free training is a bonus too because it means it is accessible to new people starting out. And the replicated websites mean managing the back end is always streamlined.

    Can you please give me a bit more information about the joining fee? It says between 50 and 90. Is it 50 until 12 February then reverts to back to 90 after that?

    Thanks in advance

    • Lace says:

      Hi Melissa, with regards to the joining fee it’s £50 until the 12th of February 2018 and reverts back to £95 thereafter. The kit however, is more even comprehensive for £95 so it balances out. My £50 starter kit was impressive and gave me plenty to get going.

      Hope that helps.
