Essential oils have changed our family’s life.
And no, that’s not just hype. It’s true. Our son sleeps better. My mind feels much more at peace throughout the day.
And we have removed a bunch of harmful chemicals from our everyday household products.
It’s pretty incredible what essential oils can do. We are excited to be on a journey towards health and wellness in our family, and we are excited that you are interested in that as well!
This post outlines everything you need to know about the Young Living Starter Kit, which you can also read more about here. This is how we got started using essential oils, and it’s the best way for others to get started as well.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. Concentrated plant-juice, if you will! These compounds include the scent, or essence of the plant.
Once extracted(through distillation or cold-pressing), these oils provide many natural benefits that promote health and wellness. They can be diffused into the air for pleasant inhaling, or applied topically on your skin.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years and are still very relevant today, if not more relevant than ever before.
They can also be used to create natural cleaning products such as cleaning sprays, soap, laundry detergent, toothpaste and more. This would allow you to remove tons of harmful chemicals found in your everyday life!
WHY ARE ESSENTIALS OILS BECOMING A THING?
Essential oils are definitely hot right now. Everyone is talking about them and trying them out.
But is it just a trend?
Young Living has been producing essential oils for 25 years. The human race has been using them for thousands of years!
It’s not a new thing. But in this day in age, we are starting to raise our standards of health and wellness. We are becoming more and more aware of the products and substances we allow into our homes.
We are demanding better, healthier products in order to live more naturally and be less dependent on harmful chemicals.
I don’t think essential oils are going anywhere. I think using them to create natural products is only just beginning and it’s so exciting!
HOW TO GET STARTED WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
Getting started with essential oils doesn’t have to be intimidating. But I understand that it can be!
That’s why I am here to help!
There are more and more companies selling essential oils these days.
Our family has chosen Young Living because they have been producing oils for 25 years. They own and operate a number of farms around the world, which members are encouraged to visit.
And they focus on producing oils in a responsible manner through their Seed To Seal program.
So if you are interested in getting oils, this guide will show you how to get started with a Young Living Starter Kit, which comes with so much! Woop!

HOW TO USE YOUR NEW YOUNG LIVING STARTER KIT?
Oils can be used 3 different ways:
- Topically, which means directly on your skin.
- Aromatically – either by diffusing or simply inhaling from the bottle.
- Internally – Many people don’t recommend this, some do. Consult a medical professional before doing so.
As you go begin using essential oils, you will find out what works best for your body.
But the important thing is making sure you are signing up with someone who is going to give you every ounce of information you need and is able to answer any questions as you are learning! That’s what I’m here for!
One of my biggest tips for using your starter kit, is OPEN THAT BOX UP and get those oils into your home in places and rooms that you will use them. You want them in reach at all times.
Yes the oils look beautiful and fun set in the starter kit box, but I can’t stress enough how simply placing oils in areas of your house that you will reach for is going to help you when something arises.
For example we keep a big pile of oils in our kitchen, the heart of our home. We also have oils in our bathrooms for baths, showers and nightly routines. I promise this is going to help you use them consistently!
When you join our team, you will be included in countless resources and Facebook groups to get you help and to answer absolutely any questions you have.

Roller blends are perfect for rolling onto your skin. Preparing these ahead of time make it super convenient to use oils throughout the day.
Combine these oils in a glass roller-bottle. Then add enough carrier oil to top off the bottle(such as fractionated coconut oil). Apply to desired area. For the glowing skin roller use jojoba oil as it will not clog pores.:

THIEVES STARTER KIT
Thieves is the all-purpose essential oil blend that will allow you to remove so many harmful chemicals from your home. Holllaaa
The Thieves product line has the ability to replace toothpaste, mouthwash, hand-soap, sanitizer and cleaners.
NINGXIA STARTER KIT
NingXia is the real bee’s knees. It’s a sweet and tangy drink made with amazing ingredients such as:
- Wolfberry, also known as Goji, which is full of health benefits and antioxidants.
- Fruit Juices and extracts including plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate.

SAVVY MINERALS STARTER KIT
Savvy Minerals is an entire makeup brand by Young Living. The goal is to create a versatile, quality line of makeup from all natural(and beneficial) ingredients. No fillers or synthetics.
The starter kit includes foundation, blush, eyeshadow, lipgloss, misting spray and Lavender essential oil.
WHICH STARTER KIT SHOULD I BUY?
For most people, the Premium Starter Kit with a diffuser and line of oils is the way to go. It gives you a diffuser, a range of oils, and a sampling of some of Young Living’s other product lines.
If you are new to using essential oils, then getting the Premium Starter Kit is the foundation for you to build on and I cannot recommend it enough.
However, if you already have a quality diffuser and a handful of oils, then feel free to consider one of the other kits!
I am a big fan of living a life free of harmful substances. So I fully support replacing your makeup collection with the Savvy Minerals kit. Makeup gets so close to so many important areas of your body. Why stuff harmful chemicals in your pores every day?
Or what about your cleaning supplies? Nobody wants to breathe in those harsh chemical smells when they clean their bathroom. We all know they are terrible for us to use. So try out the Thieves Starter Kit and fill your house with the sweet (and pleasantly spicy) smell of natural cleaners.
Basically, you can’t go wrong with any of the starter kits. But I believe the Premium Starter Kit with a diffuser and line of oils is the best way to go for anyone who is new to Essential Oils.
I hope you are as excited as I am about essential oils! They are absolutely worth trying if you don’t already have some. Getting a kit is a great way to start. I hope this post has helped give you some clarity!
