5 years ago when 19-year-old-me decided that I had to get Oils into our home, I weighed my options. I looked at all the kits available, I looked at retail vs. wholesale, & I compared prices.
(This was months after I went from being very skeptical that oils worked even in the slightest, to a very intrigued beginner & you can read about that here.)
The premium starter kit (now called the premium starter bundle) caught my eye, & the price breakdown of what it would cost me to buy everything included in the kit individually was over $300! The Kit though, was only $160. so I was like okay I for sure NEED my own kit & Young Living Account.
I signed up in December 2014 & our kit arrived the beginning of January! It was worth the long wait for shipping back then, the process is much quicker now. 😘 Here’s a throwback to that 2015 kit below ☺️
Back then the kit included 11 oils, now you get 12 bottles of Oil in the kit!
The Premium starter kit is STILL the best value & way to get started with Oils.
If you don’t already know what all comes in the kit, let me help you out
What’s included in your Premium Starter Kit for $165:
•The Desert Mist Diffuser
•12 Essential Oils (4 singles & 8 blends)
•2 Ningxia Red pouches
•2 roller fitments (to pop on your favorite oil bottles!)
•An info booklet
•24% off all future orders
Plus a ton of online educational resources provided by our team of Oilers, access to all of our groups & a ton of new friends (I’ve met so many awesome people on our team!). You won’t just buy your kit then not know what to do with it all. The plethora of resources available & our community will help you every step of the way!
If you’re like I was in the beginning, you might be wondering if you’ll actually use every oil that comes in the kit?
I wasn’t sure that I would, but I most definitely ended up using every single one of the kit oils, & I still use them daily (in so many ways).
A few of my favorite ways to use each kit oil:
(these are ways I have personally seen success using oils & I am only sharing my testimonies, not giving medical advice)
