I got my Premium Starter Kit from Young Living…now what?

Now what?

I see this all the time on forums: “My premium starter kit just came in the mail!! Now what do I do with them?”

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. 🙂

BATH SALTS using essential oils

BATH SALTS

What kind of salt do I use?

Sea Salt, Epsom salt, Dead Sea Salt, Kosher salt or a combination of salts. Salts can come in several grain sizes and combining them can make a visually appealing mix. Keep in mind larger salts take longer to dissolve and can be painful on sensitive tushies.

What else can I add?

Some people use 1/4 cup baking soda per 1 cup salt to add a bit of fizz to their bath.  Others add carrier oils such as Jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil for added moisturization.  To be super fancy you can add small bits of dried herbs or flowers for accents (lavender, rose petals, rosemary). Also, these salts make great gifts and adding 1-2 drops of food or soap coloring adds a wonderfully flair!  Note: Be VERY careful about adding coloring to your bath salts as using too much food coloring may stain the skin or your tub.  Find soap colorants on amazon HERE

How many drops of essential oil do I add?

Again, this is mostly personal taste. 5-10 drops of essential oil per cup of salt is a good place to start.   Use approximately 1/2 cup of salt per bath.

How do I mix them?

Add your salts into a stainless steel bowl and add your coloring, baking soda, oil or flower bits first.  Mix well.  Then add your essential oils.  Let oils dry for a couple hours before putting in an air tight glass jar.

How do I  use them?

Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bath salt mix in a regular sized tub.  Pour salt in a warm bath and wait for the salt to dissolve.  Did you know you can also use bath salts in the shower?  Just grab a handful and add a little bit of shower gel and gently massage on your skin to exfoliate dead skin cells.

Young Living Combinations to Diffuse

Just received your Premium Starter Kit and aren’t sure what to do with all those great smelling oils?

On the fence about purchasing the kit because you just aren’t sure you’d use them?

Love your candles but worried about the safety of leaving them unattended?

…or worse, discharging potential dangerous chemicals as they burn?

Either way DIFFUSING oils is an easy and aromatic way to introduce yourself to essential oils.  You can diffuse single oils, blends, or make your own combo to suit your mood and your preferences.   It’s really that easy!

Diffusing essential oils is more than just making the room smell nice, however.  When  you diffuse therapeutic grade essential oils, such as Young Living Essential Oils, molecules are broken up into micro-fine mist particles. These mist particles stay suspended in the air for long periods of time. Not only does this help reduce odors in the air, but these micro-mist particles promote a healthy, natural, and pure living environment.

Candles can’t do that!

Diffusing essential oils without heat can also help:

  • Reduce unpleasant odors.
  • Relax the mind and body.
  • May enhance mood and uplift spirits.
  • Promote concentration, alertness, and mental clarity.
  • Promotes general sense of well-being.

Lots of good reasons to start diffusing.  How many drops you use is largely a matter of preference.  Essential Oils are incredibly potent and therefore I would recommend you start small as you can always add more if you feel you need to.  I like to start with 6 drops total and will increase that to no more than 9 if I really feel like I need more of a boost.

Here are a few combinations using the aromatic oils in your Premium Starter Kit!

diffuser blends

Once you start your journey you’ll be acquiring all sorts of new oils along the way.  Here are some more wonderful blends to enjoy with Young Livings aromatic oils:

Thieves® Vitality Essential Oil

 

THIEVES® Vitality 

dietary

OH how I love me some Thieves® oil.  This oil packs quite the punch and it smells like a slice of spiced heaven.   Thieves® is a blend of clove, lemon cinnamon, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary – seriously – purifying the air never smelled quite so good.

There is a sordid back story behind the name of Thieves® essential oil blend.  Legend says that during the 15th century 4 thieves were captured and charged with robbing the dead and the dying during the Bubonic Plague.  When offered leniency in exchange for information about how they were able to rob graves and not contract the plague themselves, they spoke of a blend of aromatic herbs and spices they rubbed on themselves prior to their crimes.   And as such, the legend of Thieves® Essential Oil Blend was born.

9-Thieves

How to use: For internal use. To use as a dietary supplement, add to food, water or other beverages. Can also place a few drops in a vegetable capsule and take internally to support overall wellness.

10 uses for Peace and Calming® Essential Oil Blend

PEACE & CALMING®

topical aromatic

Peace & Calming® is a pretty transparent oil.  Transparent in that it means what it says and says what it does.

Peace and Calming® is a gentle, fragrant blend of Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Tangerine and Blue Tansy essential oils with an aroma that’s comforting and freshens the air. Diffuse to create a calming and peaceful atmosphere throughout the home. Peace & Calming is a must have for every household, especially those with young children.

peace and calming YL micro

I find that it smells mostly of Patchouli and  is a deeply relaxing and serene oil to diffuse.  Have you ever been to a hypnotist show? Or done one of those relaxation/mediation exercises? In both of these situations you mentally imagine each part of your body, relaxing first your head, then your neck, then your shoulders etc, each body part getting heavier and heavier,  you melt into the bed and couldn’t move if you wanted to.  This the reaction I get from Peace & Calming® but with much less effort.

Here are some other uses for  Peace & Calming® essential oil blend.

  1. Calm: Helps create a calming and relaxing environment when diffused or used topically
  2. Children: Diffuse to promote a calming environment for children or in my case, grumpy husbands.
  3. Bath: Add a few drops to Epsom salt before adding to a bath for a relaxing soak. Have someone come check on you after a while – you don’t want to turn into a prune!
  4. Meditation: Offers a peaceful aroma for yoga and meditation when diffused.PC
  5. Massage: Massage Peace & Calming essential oil blend on the reflex points of the feet and back of the neck for a soothing and relaxing effect.
  6. Holidays: Visiting in-laws?  Peace and calming will be your best friend 🙂
  7. Mind: Calm an overactive mind with 2-3 drops rubbed onto legs or arms. Pair with lavender for a great smelling and effective nighttime routine
  8. Perfume: Use as perfume behind ears and on wrists. Alternately, add to a diffuser necklace or a silk scarf to have the scent with you all day long!
  9. Pets: Rub Peace & Calming essential oil blend behind overactive pets’ ears after an afternoon of playing with the kids.
  10. Relaxation and rest: Rub Peace & Calming essential oil blend on feet to release tension and promote a good night’s rest.
  11. Diffuse: Diffuse Peace & Calming to freshen the air.

Cruising the web I found my favorite testimonial EVER at Essential Wellness

Mary E. Hoose submitted the following tip:
“I have a work associate who was getting married and was very nervous. I gave her a bottle of Peace and Calming® and she used it for about three months …. The big day arrived and she even put Peace and Calming® on a cotton ball and placed it in the center of her bouquet. Every time she [wanted a peaceful and relaxing environment] she would smell her bouquet. Thanks to Peace and Calming® the day went very smoothly.”

How great is that?
