Essential Oils – Starter Kit

There are literally hundreds of oils out there. So it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That’s why I like a starter kit. You get your basics – like your salt and pepper for your kitchen – and really get to know how to use them. Then, you can add other oils to your collection as you need to.

I really love this Premium Starter Kit. It’s got 12 oils, plus some other goodies to get you started. And there are so many ways to use these oils – easily there’s 101 ways to use just these 12 oils alone. But I know you’re short on time, so I’m going to share some of my top favorites.

Don’t worry, if you want to learn all 101 ways you’ll get that and so much more when you get your starter kit.
