Young Living: Premium Starter Kit

Young Living: Premium Starter Kit

Alright y’all…I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen an increasing number of articles and news stories centered on clean, healthy living. It is freaking me put to see just how many chemicals and toxins are in products that I use on a daily basis. I purchased a Premium Starter Kit from Young Living a little over a year ago and it has changed my life! Young Living has been a great gateway into all things clean living for me and I’m never turning back! I’ve even gotten my whole family hooked on essential oils. The Premium Starter Kit is the best place to start if you’re an oil newbie like I was when I first started. You get over $300 of goodness and a whole community of knowledgable people for only $165. So stick with me as I go through the amazingness that is the PSK and how you can use its’ contents in your everyday lives.

Diffuser of your choice

The type of diffuser you choose will determine the price of your premium starter kit. The standard diffusers that come with the lowest priced kits have three mist settings and an eleven different color settings to choose from. I have the Desert Mist Diffuser and I absolutely love it—perfect for people that are new to oils. The Aria Diffuser is definitely one of the most coveted diffusers because of how sleek and gorgeous it is.

Lavender 5-ml

In my opinion, this is the holy grail of oils! I cannot sleep at night without some of this goodness in the diffuser and a drop rubbed on my wrists as well. Lavender is most well known for promoting sleep, but it has a bunch of other amazing uses. A few drops of lavender combined with some coconut oil makes for the perfect solution for a nasty sunburn. Helps reduce peeling and soothes your skin!

Peppermint Vitality 5ml

Some oils can also come in two different forms: regular and vitality. The vitality label lets you know that the oil is safe to ingest. If I am out of the vitality form of an oil, but have the regular on hand I personally think they are safe to ingest and I have had many other people from the Young Living community say the same. Add a drop of peppermint to your hot chocolate for a yummy winter treat or diffuse when you are feeling congested.

Lemon Vitality 5ml

A few drops of lemon with lavender in the diffuser and I am pretty much fast asleep for the night. Lemon is one of my favorite scents and I love to combine it with other citrus oils for the perfect summer blend. One drop of lemon vitality in your ice water makes for a great, refreshing drink. Lemon oil also works wonders at removing sticky residue from things.

Valor 5ml

A blend of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Camphor Wood, Geranium, and Frankincense—this is hands down one of the most popular oils! Add a few drops of this oil to a warm bath or shower for a spa-like experience.

Peace & Calming 5ml

This is another one of my favorite oils, especially for emotional support. Peace & calming is perfect for winding down at the end of a stressful day. Add a few drops to your diffuser or make a roller ball to rub it on your wrists and spine when you’re on the go.

Frankincense 5ml

Frankincense is the perfect oil to diffuse for spiritual connectedness, especially during prayer or meditation. Totally makes sense as it was one of the three gifts brought to Jesus (if it’s good enough for Him it’s a winner in my book). Frankincense is great for keeping skin healthy and smoothing aging skin.

Thieves Vitality 5ml

Y’ALL!! This is my favorite remedy in the medicine cabinet during cold and flu season. So much better for you than pumping your body full of toxins and chemicals. As soon as I feel sickness coming on I pop some of this in my water, the diffuser, on the bottoms of my feet, etc.

Citrus Fresh Vitality 5ml

The absolute best spring and summer scent that makes your enter house smell fresh. It seriously makes me so happy whenever it is in the diffuser. A few drops of citrus fresh in your moisturizer or lotion can do wonders for your skin!

Raven 5ml

Raven is a very soothing oil that can be diffused or applied topically on the chest. Perfect for winding down in the evening or energizing you before a workout.

DiGize Vitality 5ml

If you have a stomach ache this oil will be your BFF. Rub a few drops of this on your stomach after a large meal or during stomach flu season and you will definitely feel better. I have made this into a roller with a carrier oil and about 10-15 drops of DiGize mixed in for easier application. More on making your own rollers will be coming in a later blog post!

PanAway 5ml

So so good for soreness and muscle aches. My dad is a huge runner and has definitely seen results when he applies this after a long run. Less cramping and aches in the days after your marathon, tryout, tournament, etc.

Stress Away 5ml

Another great oil for emotional support! Stress away has a slight vanilla scent that immediately calms me down whenever I smell it. I bought a stress away roller in one of my monthly orders and I almost always have it with me.

2 AromaGlide Roller Fitments

These two little attachments are great if you want to turn one of your oils into a roller. All you have to do is switch out the regular fitment that comes with each oil for one of these roller fitments. They can be cleaned and reused with other oils as well.

Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier, 1 oz.

You need one of these for every room of your home, especially during sick seasons. All the goodness of your regular hand sanitizers without all of the usual toxins and chemicals.

Thieves® Spray, 1 oz.

Again, this product is AMAZING! I carry it with me everywhere to disinfect any germ-ridden surfaces that I come into contact with throughout the day. Perfect for disinfecting shopping carts, airplane tray-tables, and so much more!

2 NingXia Red® 2-oz. samples

This was definitely the product I was most skeptical about after looking through everything in my premium starter kit. I left these little red packets sitting in the box for almost a year before trying them and I cannot believe I waited so long. NingXia is an all natural supplement filled with so many amazing antioxidants. Like an energy drink, but way better—no crash and no chemicals! I have been drinking 2 ounces every morning when I wake up for almost a month now and I can honestly say I have seen a huge change in my productiveness and energy levels.
