A tiny traveler wandering the PNW and sharing my love for oils.

You’ve got your starter kit, now what?

You’ve got your starter kit, now what?

Young Living was brought to my attention through social media. A friend that I trusted and liked had been posting on instagram about how amazing oils had been for her family. Over the course of a couple of months, I took in the information, did my own research and asked her the occasional question before I decided that Young Living was right for me.

I bought my premium starter kit in November of 2017 and was SO excited for it to arrive. However, it came and I was a bit overwhelmed when I opened it. As I mentioned in this post, I had previously been using oils from the store. For the most part I used peppermint, cedarwood, eucalyptus, lavender, and cinnamon. I only had experience with single oils. My kit came and it had oils I didn’t recognize – Thieves, Stress Away, PanAway – ‘what the heck are these?!’ crossed my mind more than once. It also had these weird packets filled with a liquid labeled NingXia. What in the world was NingXia?! I put everything back in the box and left it on my kitchen counter for a good 2 weeks. 



During these two weeks my enroller plugged me into some facebook groups. These groups are now my life line and such an amazing community but they overwhelmed me at first. I don’t know if you’ve picked up on a theme here but I’m easily overwhelmed. I also like to have ALL the information before I start something new. The facebook groups have insane amounts of information. They are an incredible resource. We like to think of it as our own personal google. Instead of looking something up on google, I go straight to the facebook groups. 

I had no idea that the things in the starter kit that I found scary would be some of the things I’m most obsessed with. That weird packet of liquid is now my favorite afternoon pick me up. When I start to feel like an afternoon nap is the only thing that will get me through the day, I mix a NingXia packet with plain sparkling water and just like magic, I’m ready to get through a pile of emails. If I’m at home I use a stemless wine glass and add a fun straw just to really spice things up. Stress away smells amazing. I love diffusing it when I get home from work and I add it to many of the roller blends that I make. PanAway is great for those days when I decide to hike Mount Rose and the next morning go to a yoga and beer class – my leg muscles were less than thrilled that weekend but PanAway to the rescue. Thieves is the best. It smells like Christmas – what’s not to love about that? It is also great for helping keep germs at bay. I keep a roller in my bathroom with Thieves and fractioned coconut oil and roll it on my chest and spine after every shower. I’m a public transit commuter so I also keep the same roller in my backpack for extra support when people are sneezing and coughing around me.



What happens when you get your kit? I will reach out to you after your kit arrives to see if I can answer any questions you have or give you suggestions on how to use your oils. I will also add you to our facebook groups and I promise you will love them. The men and women in these groups are amazing and I am grateful for them everyday. I will be with you every step of the way. You can connect with me whenever you have questions in whichever way works best for you – text, email, phone call, facebook or instagram. We can even FaceTime if thats your jam. I just ask that you provide me with a warning before FaceTiming me. So what are you waiting for?! Grab your kit and get ready for your life to change!
