I see this all the time on forums: “My premium starter kit just came in the mail!! Now what do I do with them?”
- First, clink on these links to get more detailed information on each oil: Frankincense, Joy, Purification, Lemon, Stress Away, Peppermint, PanAway, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree), Lavender, and Thieves essential oils.
It’s easy to become overwhelmed with your oils and you’ll find that a lot of it is trial and error as different oils react differently from person to person. I’ve put together some good rules to start you off on the right foot.
1. Dilute with a carrier oil, such as organic cold pressed coconut oil, sweet almond oil, or jojoba oil. Mixing your oil with a carrier oil does NOT dilute the benefits, it just allows you to spread it around more and minimizes potential for a negative reaction. If you can’t find them in town at your local health food store, then Amazon.com has a good selection. For most situations, 2-5% dilution is enough.
2. Do a patch test first. Don’t assume that just because oils are natural they can’t hurt you or your skin. A patch test will ensure that you don’t react negatively before you slather it all over your body!
3. Invest in a book. If you are serious about incorporating oils into your life, then usage books will be your essential oil bible. Seriously. There are many out there but I can’t tell you which ones – sorry!
4. Use your upline. You can find your upline information in the Young Living virtual office. They are there to help you. USE THEM. Otherwise, join some forums. Bookmark this blog. Research, research, research!
5. Most importanly, be safe. 🙂
