Make and takes are a great way to get together with friends and get crafty. They can take a bit of work to put together but in all that I’ve done, I’ve never seen someone who has looked sad to be there. Everyone has a great time and makes what they want. I charge for materials for my make & takes. Feel free to be generous and pay for supplies if you want to have a crafty night with friends and you’re able to financially do so. Per Young Living’s policies, you can’t charge for the essential oils. Because of that, I add up the cost of the bottles, labels, etc plus my time to prepare and that is the cost that I apply to each item or event as a whole if there is a flat fee.
I’ve done make and takes a few different ways: 1) a list of items to choose from, make whatever you want in whatever quantities and each item is priced individually or 2) we have X number of items to make, you make them all for a flat fee. Both work well, it just depends on what you want to do and how much prep you want to have….
