While the blends are pretty simple to figure out, you know that there are a nearly infinite number of ways to use your individual oils. Diffuse. Dilute and use on your skin. Add to different culinary dishes. Where do you even start?
Feeling overwhelmed with what to do with your Premium Starter Kit oils?
I remember all too well receiving my first Premium Starter Kit back in 2014. Going through all of the oils was a bit overwhelming, especially after having just returned home from with a new baby, and was finally in a healing season from chronic autoimmune and neurological issues.
I absolutely LOVED the fact that we had every oil we need for a natural wellness toolkit, and finally found a nontoxic cleaning alternative for our home. But having them and actually using them are two very different things! While the oils in your PSK are perfect to set you up with everything you absolutely NEED with essential oils, its fun to use them in fun, diverse ways.

To use these blends, simply add them to your diffuser, then fill up to the stop line with water, and turn on your diffuser. Remember, less is more, especially when just starting out.

10 ideas for DIY Roller Bottle Blends featuring your new PSK oils
To make your roller bottle blend, simply add the amount of essential oils for the blend in the graphic that you want, then fill the rest of your roller bottle with your favorite carrier oil. I personally recommend Sweet Almond, Grapeseed, or Young Living's V6 carrier oils (those are my personal favorites).
Need empty bottles? You can order them from any bottle supply shop that offers essential oil bottles or even off Amazon. Personally, we save our old essential oil bottles, remove the labels, and reuse the bottles with a roller fitment. On occasion, we indulge in a YL branded roller bottle (they're so pretty). To reuse your bottles, ensure they are clean by soaking the empty bottle disassembled in boiling water for at least 15 minutes. Then let dry. Need a fun roller bottle?

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.
