Your Answers


01.   Who should host a party?
Everyone! It's a great way to connect with your friends for fun and rewards. Our typical hostess can earn free products and more at 50% off. We pride ourselves on having something for almost everyone- men, women, kids and travel goods.

02.   How do I get connected to a Consultant?
Our inquiry form will quickly help to connect you to your closest Essential Additions Consultant. Fill it out and we will forward your info to the appropriate Consultant who will contact you directly.

03.   How often do you offer new products?
All the time! We introduce new products every four to five weeks to add to our core collection. You can always discover something new at an Essential Additions Party.

04.   What should I expect at my Party?
You and your friends will have a great time! Parties typically last about 2 hours and are always casual and fun. There's no pressure. Your trained Consultant will help your friends to select the perfect pieces to complement their wardrobe and lifestyle.

05.   Can I have a Party somewhere other than my home?
Yes. While the home environment is best, Consultants can also hold Parties in an office conference room, or another location.

06.   What forms of payment are accepted at Parties?
Visa, Master Card and cash. Consultants may choose to accept personal cheques.

07.   Will my friends and I get to see all the products at my Party?
Your Consultant will bring a variety of sample selections for everyone to try as well as brochures that show the entire range. Guests can also view all of our products online.

08.   When will guests receive their orders?
Our products typically arrive within three weeks. Consultants bring samples for guests to try, but do not carry inventory. Guests give the Consultant an order to process directly with Essential Additions. Consultants may have discontinued styles for sale to take home.

09.   How many guests do I need to have?
We love parties to be big and small. Our Consultants conduct parties for 8-10, as often as they style gatherings of 15-20.

10.   What should I do about invitations?
Your Consultant will help you with every detail of your party. We recommend that you email a save the date, and your Consultant will provide you with branded paper invitations to send out to your guest list.

11.   Do you hold fundraising Parties?
Yes we love to give back. Our Consultants often hold fun Parties for different charities and Essential Additions donate 10% of Party sales to the registered charity.

12.   What if my friends can't make it?
You'll never find the perfect date where everyone can attend. No worries! If friends can't make it, they'll still be able to shop your event by looking online or in the brochure and giving you an outside order!

13.   Can I have food and drink at my party? What should I serve?
Of course! We suggest light appetizers and drinks. We encourage you not to go overboard with food, keep refreshments super simple. We encourage the Hostess to serve refreshments after the completion of the presentation.
