We were introduced to Essential Oils by my amazing friend Tara, founder of No 41. She had recently started using Young Living oils and shared some with me while Maya and I were visiting her. Before I even came home, I bought a Starter Kit of Young Living essential oils. I was so excited to get my kit and have LOVED learning more and using these oils on our little family. If you want to get started with essential oils, I highly recommend the Premium kit. Here is what you will get: Everyday Oils collection (10 of the most loved essential oils), Home Diffuser, Stress Away oil, samples of some of the most popular oils to share with friends. The kit is $150 and is without a doubt the best deal (The Everyday Oils collection alone is $124 and the diffuser is $100.) It is a great way to get started because you have enough oils to choose from and play with, but not too many to be overwhelmed. For information on how to order your our oil starter kit, CLICK HERE. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
Below is a video to show you exactly what comes in the Premium Starter kit and how we use them. It is a bit long, but has a lot of information.
NOTE: Since I made this video, the kit has been modified a bit. Same great value, but a couple of the oils have been switched out. Instead of Peace & Calming and Valor, the kit now has Melaleuca Alternifolia and Citrus Fresh.
HOW WE USE THE OILS IN THE PREMIUM STARTER KIT:
Lavender: I literally have 4 bottles of this in my house and another one on the way. We have one in the kitchen, in our oil drawer for general use. We’ve used it on burns from cooking, bug bites and my favorite lately, a swipe inside my cheeks and nose to stop my allergies. One bottle in Maya’s room to help heal any scratches and for calm and relaxation before nap/bedtime. One bottle for Alain for healthy skin and one in my bathroom. I use it so often. It is my go-to oil to diffuser at night for Maya to relax and calm.
Thieves: I pull this out every morning that Maya goes to Mother’s Day Out. It is great for an immune boost. Just a couple of days ago, she started to cough. It sounded bad. I diffused Thieves overnight and she woke up better. A couple more applications and the cough is gone.
Lemon: I put a drop or two in my water when I actually drink water. It tastes great. I’m hoping to do this more and more to encourage myself to drink water. I also diffuse Lemon with Peppermint and Lavender for allergies. I also add it to Peppermint and coconut oil to rub on Maya’s chest for congestion.
Peppermint: LOVE! We use Peppermint for headaches. Apply to temples, neck (careful not to get to close to our eyes). It feels a bit like Icy Hot. I also dilute it with coconut oil and apply to to Maya’s chest for congestion.
PanAway: I think this was one of the first oils that we ran out of and it is one of the reasons that I bought another kit. It is great for muscle aches and pains. I dilute it in coconut oil and massage it directly to the sore area.
Joy: My favorite oil to diffuse. The scent is happy and JOYful. It is great to lift your mood. I can’t say that I’ve found a miracle mood lifting oil, but anything to help keep my up on a stressful day even a bit is worth it for me. My days are better when I add Joy.
Purification: At first, I used this mainly to purify the air by diffusing. It smells sweet and citrusy. Recently I used it on my ear for an ear ache and it worked so well. I could almost feel the fluid in my ear draining. Sorry if that is TMI :) One reason I am enjoying oils so much is that they are so versatile. You can use one oil for many issues and many different oils for the same issue.
Frankincense: This is another reason for ordering the kit. Frankincense has so many uses, but is pretty pricey. Getting in the kit is a good deal. I used it for immune boost when Maya was sick and gave it to my mother-in-law to help with vertigo.
Stress Away: I use it every day. I am still working out which oils will help best for anxiety, but I do believe that this is helping to calm and refocus me. I have a roller ball on my bottle to apply quickly to my wrist.
