You've got your starter kit - now what?
Now that you've got your starter kit, what's next? The first time I opened my kit I had no idea what to do. I grabbed purification and thieves and that was it. I didn't use it for anything other than making the living room smell good.
It wasn't until I found my online community, my team, my upline, that I knew what to do. So this page is for you! The links in your email I sent after you got your kit is all for you. So you know what to do and can start using that kit to it's fullest potential! The facebook groups you've been added to, use them. Ask questions, add stuff you've learned. There is so much about oils that this community knows and is learning to do better for their families. Not a single person knows everything, so share what you learn too! Something you've learned can help someone else and me!
Any more questions, message me! I've got you!
First off, take out your diffuser and place it somewhere you'll see it every day and remember to fill it everyday and use it. Start simple. 2 drops Lavender, 2 Drops Lemon. Or 4 drops of Thieves. Or any of the blends from your email or below.
Until you're comfortable using your oils, this might as far as you go. That is totally fine. If you're looking for more ideas to use your oils, check out the facebook groups and take to Pinterest! There are lots on there. Some of my favorite products are DIY ones I've done at home from recipes others have tried and shared in the group!
Okay, so we've walked through diffusing essential oils and other little ideas to do with your starter kit. Now let's talk applying essential oils to your skin.
Some of the greatest benefits from essential oils comes from applying them. Rollers are my favorite way to do so. Teething rollers, bedtime rollers, immune rollers. We have rollers in all corners of our home. So it might be a lot to try but here are some ideas.
Add the drops you need. I don't put more than 20-30 (1/4 of the bottle is a good measure too) drops for adults in a roller. No more than 10 for babies under 1, and then only about 15-20 drops until ages 10+. Once you add those drops, you fill the rest with a carrier oil.
Carrier Oils are used to dilute the essential oils because some oils are strong or "hot oils", like peppermint. Fractionated coconut oil, almond oil, YoungLivings V6 oil, olive oil, and jojoba oil are just some of the many there are. My favorites are fractionated coconut oils (FCO), you can find it in the cooking oil section at Superstore.
If you are looking for rollers, don't look too far. I've got some hand labelled bottles available. They will be online soon, but for now you can find pictures of products available on Instagram or Facebook.
If you ever feel burning or discomfort when wearing your oils, stop and don't panic. DO NOT rinse with water, it just makes the oils get into your system faster. Clean the area with a carrier oil. Olive oil is a good one. If you get it in your eyes, don't put olive oil in your eye, just rub it around your eye and it will draw out the essential oils. Some oils are photosensitive, each bottle has their labels and your product guide that came in your kit has notes about which oils are safe, need diluting or are photosensitive.
We have many facebook groups and a very large community that you can learn from! Some of my favorites are, @theoilscollective and @gritsandgrace for any US members. As for Canadians, my upline is amazing, @ylnation. There are tons of amazing resources online through our Facebook community. If you aren't connected in the groups, send me a message and I'll fix that right away.
With all that said, if you just signed up and haven't heard about the Essential Rewards program or if you're interested the business side of YoungLiving and you are interested check out our ER highlight on Instagram or shoot me a message and we will chat!
If you have stumbled across this page by accident and you don't have your kit but you're interested head over here and we will get you started!
