Unpacking your first Premium Starter Kit from Young Living can be really exciting, but also slightly terrifying and overwhelming! We get it. We were there too!
One thing we know for certain is that if you never open your kit, you'll never get to experience all the magic inside. We want you to have the best experience possible and WE ARE HERE TO HELP!
Your very best resource for starting out with essential oils is the Young Living member who helped you get set up with your kit. They are a wealth of knowledge and experience and are here to guide you through your journey! We've also got some pretty great resources below that we put together as a team to make this as easy as possible for you. Check it out!
We know this sounds obvious, but you'd be surprised how many people get side-tracked and forget to open their kit for months!
The best thing to do is to get together in person or on a video call with your friend who hooked you up. They want to help you walk through the kit and show you what's what and give you all their secret tips and tricks.
Next step is to open every bottle and give it a long sniff! Don't be discouraged if you don't like the smell of an oil. It happens and they tend to grow on you. You'll notice that Young Living oils smell like real plants and that's because they are! You aren't getting anything that's been messed with, added to, or created in a lab. Just pure planty goodness.
In order to apply oils topically you're going to need some carrier oils. These base oils "carry" the essential oils onto the skin. To start you can just grab the olive or coconut oil from your pantry. It's that easy!
You will dilute the essential oil with the carrier oil per the instructions on the bottle. For example, when applying peppermint oil to the skin you would use 1 drop with 2 drops of your preferred carrier oil. Mix them together in your hand and apply.
One of the easiest ways to use essential oils is to put them in your diffuser. Aromatherapy has so many benefits and when you diffuse everyone in the room can share in the good stuff! Diffusing is cost-effective, simple, and awesome.
In the morning fill your diffuser with water and add 2 drops each of peppermint and lemon for a boost. If you open your kit at night try 2 drops each of lavender and stress away for a peaceful aroma!
With oils you are going to want to use them early and often. Consistency is key as well as giving them some time to work. One of the main things you can do to create a new routine with your oils is leaving them out to see. This way you will be reminded to grab for them when issues arise!
Ningxia Red is a delicious, powerhouse wolf berry drink! It's infused with nutrients and packs a punch of antioxidants that you can't get anywhere else. We suggest putting your packets in the fridge and letting it chill before drinking it.
