Young Living's Premium Starter Kit features 11 of the most used essential oils and oil blends. It is the fastest and most efficient way to dive into the world of essential oils.
- Essential oils include: Lemon, Lavender, Frankincense, and Peppermint
- Essential oil blends include: Raven, Citrus Fresh, Pan Away, Thieves, DiGize, Valor, Peace and Calming, and Stress Away
The oils in the Premium Starter Kit were chosen because they are the most purchased, most popular, and most used by essential oil enthusiasts and Young Living members. They can all easily be used daily in your normal routine. There truly is no better way to get started using essential oils than with these 5 essential oils and 6 essential oil blends and a diffuser in your home. (If you haven't yet taken the plunge to order your kit, buy one here).
A quick note before using your oils: please keep a carrier oil on hand when using your essential oils. They are natural, but very potent and can cause skin irritation. We recommend you dilute a drop of essential oil with 1 ml of carrier oil – or 5 drops essential oil to a teaspoon of carrier oil. Carrier oils can be just about any seed-based oil, such as coconut oil, sweet almond oil, or Young Living's V6 oil (these are a great deal too that gives you a variety to see which you like best).
A carrier oil can be any cold-pressed, seed-based oil (ideally organic and unrefined). This includes most cooking oil, like coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil. Personally, we LOVE using sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, and the V6 Carrier oil (made by Young Living). This is the best way to dilute your essential oils for topical use.

My personal experience using Young Living's Premium Starter Kit
I purchased Young Living's Premium Starter Kit in 2014, almost a year after overcoming some intense debilitating autoimmune and neurological health problems. I was on the search for high quality essential oils, pregnant, and looking for better options for cleaning our home without harmful chemicals or having to DIY every little thing like I had been for a year.
How I found Young Living
I first learned about Young Living through doing Pinterest searches. I came across a natural wellness blogger in 2013 who really resonated with me, and pinned one of her posts to save her information for later, not sure if I was ready to spend the money to dive in with a starter kit.
You see… I was unable to work due to a complex autoimmune and seizure disorder, and already unable to afford much of anything. The only income I made was my $974 monthly veteran's disability stipend. $165 for a box of oils is a lot to spend when you can't even afford to pay rent, and not living on the streets thanks to the grace of a couple friends.
After deciding to see if Young Living's quality would live up to its hype, I decided to give them a try and compare them to the other brands I had already been using. My main oil brand that I loved was very difficult to find, and at the time was not selling their oils online.
I spent 8 months searching for that pin with that blogger's information. Something about her really spoke to me, and if I was going to sign up and spend the money, I knew she had to be the one to help guide me through.
I'm so thankful for intuition. The woman I signed up with, Becky Webb, ended up rising up the ranks from Silver when I joined to Diamond just a year later. Seeing her transformation with oils was incredibly inspiring… then seeing her professional transformation following her passion building her oils business was just jaw dropping (even though I wasn't originally interested in the business). Getting to know her has truly been an honor, as she was one of the few people I've met who is genuinely encouraging… the perfect ambassador to what Young Living is all about.
What changed… what caused me to start Young Living's Business Opportunity
In 2014 I got married, and we welcomed our first baby, after a dramatic full physical healing season in 2013. I was adamant during the summer of 2014 that I didn't want anything to do with Young Living's business opportunity. I had horrible experiences with two different Amway teams, and ended up sucked into Melaleuca's false advertising. After their products all made me horribly sick (sneezing and allergic reactions), and alienating myself from the few friends I had thanks to all three teams' horrible marketing practices, I decided to end my time with them… and any other network marketing company that would potentially come my way.
Young Living was different. There was no pressure to sell. Just acceptance, and genuine caring. The team I had chosen was perfect for me, and totally aligned with my values. There was no spamming… there was no high pressure sales tactics… there was no guilt trips over not doing anything right.. and there was no pressure to purchase more ever.
I started sharing some of my successes with the oils. I talked about how they helped with our quality of sleep… about how they helped me ward off feeling fuzzy like I used to before having a seizure… about how they helped me gain strength with starting to walk again (after 8 years of being in and out of bed rest and wheelchairs)… and about how they helped me regain my focus and start remembering things again.
Next thing I knew… friends and a couple family members were asking me where I was getting my oils from and how they can get the same ones I was using too. Apparently some had tried cheaper essential oils in the past and never had results, so learning that results can happen with using high quality oils turned them into high demand.
I never once tried to close a sale. Just shared my story, and provided links when asked. Next thing I knew, I had a business. And it continued to grow each year.
And blessings flowed…
- Not having an adequate income was no longer an issue for me
- Being unsure about how to earn enough to cover my oil purchases each month was not an issue
- Wondering what I can do when no one would hire me because of my health issues was no longer a problem
- I could finally afford the high quality, nontoxic cleaners I needed and didn't have to DIY
- We could finally have our house smelling lovely without worrying about ingredients or using harmful chemicals in candles and air fresheners.
- My memory improved
As if the healing benefits weren't enough, I actually had a flexible (accidental) business that I could literally take with me anywhere we moved to. Being a military family, we move to different states (and sometimes countries) every couple years.
- My business moves with us without adding too much weight to our moves
- I don't have to worry about transferring jobs or starting new ones
- I'm able to stay home with my son
- I was able to completely take 4 months off for maternity leave when we had our second son (no paperwork, no loss in income, no permission needed)
- We've been able to go with my husband to his training, without needing permission, worrying about losing income, and without having to stop my business.
- I don't have to spam anyone or worry about ruining relationships
- I'm able to build my business anyway I want, with whom I want, how I want, when I want, and where I want… total freedom.
And probably the single most exciting part of working a Young Living business with our team… I have the privilege to provide families with their own abilities to heal themselves, solve their most important life problems, and create their own flexible businesses.
I get to guide them through being their own hero through all that, all while putting my own passions and education in business strategy to use. I literally get paid to help people enhance their quality of life. Its the dream job I didn't know I needed… and now I cannot imagine life without it.
