Young Living’s essential oils have transformed my thinking about my and my family’s overall health and well-being. They work. They’re safe. They help you become your own health advocate! (Read my journey to essential oils here!)

Ready to get started on your oily journey towards better wellness and want the easiest way to get a jump on it?!
Young Living’s Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit is the easiest and most affordable way! This essential oil kit is the only thing that is fully 50% off the retail price, is over $400 in product for $165, so it really is an affordable way to get started. The closest thing you can order from YL and not get the kit is the Everyday Oils Collection that includes 10 oils. The total is $164 if you buy as a retail customer. This is not cost effective compared to getting the whole Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit with MORE products, a diffuser, and bonus samples, all for $1 more!!!
The Essential Oils starter kit comes with 12 oils and a diffuser plus bonus goodies including a sample of Thieves Cleaner, Thieves hand purifier, two roller top fitments, and two packets of NingXia Red. A big plus is that you are automatically a member with discount pricing and have access to the Essential Rewards program for reordering which is what I do every month.
So let’s dive into all these amazing oils from the Premium Starter Kit! There are literally thousands of uses for your oils, but I’ll only cover a handful of the common ones. The reference materials I can recommend, this site and my Dynamically Essential Instagram and Facebook pages will be great guides to help you discover more ways to use them once you get started.
Lemon Vitality supports your liver and your lymphatic and immune systems to provide a gentle detox. Put a drop of Lemon Vitality in your water for a gentle detox. Great for healthy skin, mental clarity, tummy support, enhances food & water, supports immune system, degreaser, key ingredient in Thieves & NingXia Red.
Lavender is very calming. It might remind you of a spa. Great in the diffuser or on your feet before bed for a restful night’s sleep. healthy skin, emotional support, stress relief, seasonal comfort/allergies, swiss army knife of EOs.
Peppermint Vitality is great to help curb your appetite and gives you an afternoon pick-me-up. Also great for an upset tummy. Add a drop to a capsule or water and drink after a big meal to promote healthy bowel & gut function, maintains efficiency of the digestive track. Alertness/concentration, healthy breathing, opens blood vessel. I love combining Lemon, Lavender, & Peppermint in the diffuser or roll-on for seasonal support in the spring.
DiGize Vitality contains Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli. It’s the blend of best “digestive oils”. While not great smelling, it is everyone’s favorite because it works so well. Add a drop or two to a veggie capsule or to your NingXia Red after a meal. Combining Peppermint vitality and DiGize vitality daily to provide amazing digestive support.
Frankincense, like Lavender, is very calming. It is grounding: great for meditation/spiritual health. It is also amazing for your skin to help create a youthful appearance so add a drop to your daily moisturizer. Apply a drop to your forehead or diffuse for a peaceful atmosphere. Great skin oil that helps smooth the appearance of skin, blood coagulant/ wounds, healthy cellular function. Combine a drop of Frankincense and Lavender in your moisturizer daily and you will be amazed at the appearance of your skin.
PanAway is great for soothing your muscles and joints before or after exercise. If you slept funny and woke up with a stiff neck or if you have growing kids, this is a great one to combine with Peppermint to use on your muscles and joints. Use before a workout as a preventive help rather than reactive.
Raven is a powerful blend of Ravintsara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus radiata. It is perfect to diffuse or apply topically pre- or post- exercise and before bed. Apply topically to lungs and throat. Diffuse or put on pillow at night. (Put a few drops in your palm, rub your hands together, and rub pillow.) Pairs well with Thieves. Use cation when using on small children, the KidScents Snifflease oil blend Young Living created especially for kids is an excellent alternative.
Citrus Fresh Vitality is a blend of Orange, Tangerine, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Lemon, and Spearmint. It may help to enhance the feeling of well-being. It is relaxing and calming, and it smells SO good. Think citrus with a hint of mint. May be applied on the ears, heart, and wrists or worn as a perfume or cologne. It may also be added to water for a relaxing bath. This is my fav for adding to water! Dryer sheets/fabric softener are other popular products that are filled with toxins. Add drops of Citrus Fresh to wool dryer balls. You don’t need to spend money on fabric softener or dryer sheets and you just eliminated a TON of chemicals. Win, Win!
Thieves Vitality is another GREAT one to use regularly for immune support. It smells amazing and works wonders. It is a blend of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary cineol. I use it regularly with my oils and products but if I start feeling a little drained, I double up on my it and I back above the wellness line in no time! Wellness “tea” is great to drink daily. Hot water with a little raw honey, a drop of Thieves vitality, Lemon vitality, and Peppermint vitality. If you don’t have time for being under the weather, then Thieves will be your jam! Young Living carries an entire Thieves line. The Thieves line includes cleaner, toothpaste, hand soap, hand purifier, and more. It’s the easiest way to start making the switch to toxin-free living.
Stress Away, which does exactly what you think it does. This does have lime oil in it, so if you apply it topically, just be aware that it can make your skin sensitive to the sun. Top emotional oil, blends of lime, vanilla pure, & other EOs for a tropically/citrus aroma, diffuse for a relaxing environment, for everyday stressors, emotional support, restful sleep, concentration, when having a hard day apply to palms & inhale to feel comfort. It’s like a vacation in a bottle!
Peace & Calming is a gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue tansy essential oils and is one of Young Living’s most popular essential oil blends. Apply to wrists and inhale or diffuse it when you are feeling on edge. Perfect to use during your children’s bedtime and for yourself after the house has settled down.
Valor is a deep blue blend of Black spruce, Camphor, Blue tansy, Frankincense, and Geranium that smells amazing. It’s not too sweet or overpowering. Many people inhale or wear it to boost their courage, confidence, and self-esteem. Combine a drop with Peace and Calming to your wrists to provide the perfect combo to calm your nerves and feel confident to take on any task. Many people use Valor before a presentation, going to an event, or engaging in nerve-racking activities like flying, or use everyday to feel confident in your own skin. This is also great for kids who are worried about attending school, playdates, or being around others. Make them a roll-on they can use as their superhero or brave oil.
You’ll also get two samples of NingXia Red. This is a juice puree and I’m going to tell you about it because it’s one of our most beloved products. NingXia Red is 25% NingXia Wolfberry puree, which is a wellness-supporting superfruit with an incredibly high antioxidant rating. This is much higher than other fruits, like blueberries. Antioxidants make for an unfriendly environment for free radicals. If you don’t know the effects free radicals have on your body, you should google it.
This dietary supplement helps support normal blood sugar levels, provides support for normal eye health, cellular function, and energy levels. If you were to take only one supplement rom YL this is the one you’ll want! We call it our vitamin juice because it’s like eating a ton of fruits and veggies in just 2oz!
You’ll also receive a sample of the Thieves Household Cleaner. The absolute easiest step to take to start eliminating toxic chemicals from your home is to use the Thieves cleaner. It’s plant-based and completely safe and effective. It is highly concentrated, so you’ll only need the sample in a big spray bottle topped with water.
It gives you a cleaner that costs less than $1.50 a bottle! I threw out every single cleaner I had and now just use this. We use it to clean floors, counters, mirrors, windows, bathrooms, kids’ toys, even on clothes and carpets. IT SERIOUSLY CLEANS EVERYTHING!
There are so many wonderful uses for these oils and products and this is just the tip of the iceberg! Find more ideas and inspiration on this site and my Dynamically Essential Instagram and Facebook pages.
