Hey, hey! If you found yourself on this post and you don’t have a Young Living Premium Starter Kit, no worries! Read through this and maybe it will confirm your decision on purchasing one. Staying true to my blogging roots, I’m not writing about essential oils just to sell you something. I’m simply sharing something that I love. Young Living is all about education and transitioning to a healthier lifestyle with essential oils. Of course, if you’re ready to buy a Premium Starter Kit, you can use my link! If you choose to sign up with my link, send me a quick email after doing so and I’ll give you back $20 into your Young Living account! Because trust me, you’ll want to buy more essential oils. 😉
And if you just got your starter kit in the mail and you’re looking for a little guidance, then you’ve come to the right place!
Essential oils seem to be popping up everywhere lately. It’s one of those things that you don’t miss if you’ve never used them, but once they’re in your life you’ll wonder how you ever survived without them! I know when I was first approached about adding some essential oils to my life through Young Living, I was pushed off thinking it was just another multi-level marketing business. But my oily friend, Tricia, sent me some samples a few months back and it instantly became a no-brainer to order the Young Living Premium Starter Kit.
But then I got the kit and I was like wtf do I do with everything?
I didn’t want to do anything “wrong” so I put it off for weeks! (Yeah, I overthink just about everything). After getting the courage from Tricia to just start small and go from there, it seemed less intimidating. I’m not an essential oil expert, but I love what I’ve learned. So this post is for those of you that are just like me and get overwhelmed with so much information out there. Let’s keep it simple so you can get the most out of your starter kit!

A Few Oil Terms To Know
A few terms you’ll see pop up a lot when researching Young Living essential oils include:
- Vitality: This simply means they are intended for consumption. Think, capsule, cooking, or added directly to tea/water.
- Dilute: You can dilute an oil by combing it with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil, olive oil, or grapeseed oil), which helps slow down the absorption of the oil.
- Topical: Meaning, the oil being applied to the skin. Some oils may need to be diluted before using them topically.
- Aromatic: This refers to inhaling an essential oil. Typically, you would rub the oil on the palm of the hands and then cup them to the nose and mouth.
- Diffuser: The machine used to disperse essential oils into the air.
Educate & Connect
EDUCATION. IS. KEY. Confession: I put off educating myself for the first several weeks and that was probably my only mistake. When I finally set aside some time to start reading and learning, I felt so much more comfortable with my oils. Many members gain access to closed Facebook groups once they invest in the starter kit. One thing I totally love about Young Living is that it’s a true community filled with essential oil lovers. With Facebook groups like Essential Ed, I have a go-to spot to ask questions, connect with others, and get new ideas.
Everything can be at your own pace. Take your time and find what works for you. I, personally, love reading the Young Living Essential Oils Blog!

Get To Know Your Essential Oils
Lemon Vitality became a favorite of mine before I ever even bought the kit. I’m totally addicted to using it every single day. Not only does it enhance the flavor of foods and water, it also supports a healthy immune system.
Copaiba Vitality has a pleasant, honey-like taste and is the perfect addition to an herbal tea. When Copaiba Vitality is taken internally, it can promote overall wellness and may be an important part of a daily health regimen.
DiGize Vitality is a blend of ginger, anise, fennel, peppermint, tarragon, lemongrass, patchouli, and Juniper. Exclusive to Young Living, it was a big influence for me to try out essential oils. It’s a great mealtime companion to complement my health regimen. I keep it on hand for when my digestive system needs a boost!
I was immediately drawn to Thieves’ versatility and wasn’t surprised to find out that it’s Young Living’s most popular product. It’s a powerful blend of lemon, eucalyptus, clove, cinnamon, and rosemary. Thieves Vitality supports a healthy immune system and can contribute to overall wellness when it’s taken as a dietary supplement.
Thieves also has its own line of cleaning supplies through Young Living! I’ve already replaced my hand sanitizer with a Thieves sanitizer and will continue to replace some of my household cleaners with Thieves products.
Peppermint Vitality is one I always have in my home. Not only does it support gastrointestinal system comfort, it also enhances healthy gut function. Use Peppermint Vitality to help maintain the efficiency of the digestive tract and support normal digestion.
PanAway is a stimulating blend of peppermint, wintergreen, clove, and helichrysum. You can only get it as a wholesale member of Young Living and it’s a great addition to the Premium Starter Kit. It can be applied to fatigued muscles after exercise or during a massage. PanAway contains naturally occurring methyl salicylate and menthol, commonly used as the active ingredients in many sports creams. With that said, it can also be applied to the neck and back for a soothing and stimulating aromatic experience!
Raven is another essential oil blend unique to Young Living and consists of ravintsara, lemon, wintergreen, peppermint, and eucalyptus radiata. It can be used to make your own chest rub to apply over the chest and throat. Simply add a warm compress over top to result in a calming aroma. Raven is a must-have for every home during the winter months!
Citrus Fresh is an antioxidant-rich blend and can freshen the air of any environment. With a sweet, refreshing blend of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, mandarin, and a splash of spearmint, Citrus Fresh gives a revitalizing and uplifting aromatic experience. I love diffusing it in the morning for an energizing atmosphere.
Frankincense has a stimulating and focusing aroma. Dubbed as “The King of Oils”, it promotes the appearance of smooth, healthy-looking skin. You can find it featured in Young Living’s line of skincare products, too!
Ahhhh, lavender. 💜 💜 💜 If I had to pick one essential oil for the rest of my life, it would be lavender. The most versatile of all essential oils, it can be used in so many ways. It’s calming aroma is soothing and refreshing, perfect for fighting occasional nervous tension. Lavender can also be used to cleanse and soothe minor skin irritation.
You can find Lavender in almost all of my favorite diffuser blends! (See 5 of my favorites at the bottom of this post!)
Stress Away has been a game-changer for me. The calming blend of lavender, lime, vanilla, copaiba, cedarwood, and ocotea means I keep it with me at all times.
The Premium Starter Kit gives you a roller for Stress Away so you can apply it whenever the daily stress creeps into your life.
Thieves Household Cleaner & Ningxia Red
I think it’s brilliant that Young Living adds the Thieves household cleaner to the starter kit because it’s something you have to use to truly appreciate it’s power. It can be used as an all-purpose cleaner, but don’t forget to add it to 2-3 cups of water. From dish soap to laundry detergent, Thieves can replace many household products.
Ningxia Red seemed strange to me at first, but I stuck it in the fridge and gave it a shot. The unique flavor is a mix of sweet and tangy, and I have to admit, Ningxia Red tastes so much better than I expected! With ingredients that boost energy levels, support cell function, and normal eye health, it’s a must-have for any oily home. I blew through my samples and will be splurging on my next Young Living order so I can add this to my routine every day.
Have Fun With Your Essential Oils
Young Living is all about bettering your life. Something comes up every day that I end up reaching for one of my oils and I know that this is just the beginning! I find it fun to try out new diffuser blends, suggest an oil for a friend in need, or substitute Vitality oils in our recipes. I’m excited to start providing more essential oil posts to give you suggestions, tips, tricks, and more. And I truly believe if you have been wanting to dive into all of the benefits that essential oils provide, there’s no better way to start than with the Young Living Premium Starter Kit.
