Young Living Essential Oils Unboxing – Premium Starter Kit

Young Living Essential Oils Unboxing - Premium Starter Kit
I’ve been using essential oils for a few years now. I love them for many reasons, but I want to learn more. So I’m going deeper – and I plan to share my experiences along the way. :)

I chose Young Living essential oils

After much research, I’ve decided to go with Young Living Oils. I’m not here to start or engage in any debate on which EO provider is best. Suffice it to say, there are many quality oils out there, and everyone chooses the ones that work best for them.

I like Young Living because they carefully monitor every step of the production from beginning to end through a unique “seed to seal” process, ensuring purity, safety and effectiveness.

I just got my Premium Starter Kit

This was is an investment of around $150, but definitely the best value when starting out, as it’s a great base of oils to begin with, plus a diffuser, all valued around $300.

Here’s what’s in the kit

    Hi Mama Natural! I have been dabbling with EOs for a while, but am wanting to get serious for me and my family. I’ve been comparing companies, and like the YL packages best. However, I am wondering about the SSN requirement. If I am only obtaining oils for personal use, is there a way around using my SSN? I recently have been told that doTERRA has stopped requiring them, so I am curious if YL will consider offering membership without SSNs, too. Thank you very so much. God bless!

    I am at the beginning of using & learning about essential oils as well as many of you. My Premier Starter Kit is on its way. I have to say that navigating the sign up procedure was horribly confusing and time consuming. I know quite a few YL distributors who all agree and all they could do was to ask me to be patient with the process. Time to be online AND on the phone to call YL was a challenge and then the person I spoke with seemed a bit irritated with me. I decided to continue ‘smiling as I spoke’ but was persistent and asked my questions without waivering and also was determined to get that kit ordered! Honestly I planned on ordering it almost 3 wks ago but finding the time to call while online during their business hours ….. Well anyway, I was hoping that the Reference spiral bound full-size book would be included in a distributors kit – at least as an option to buy at t deep discount – but it was not. I hope to buy one in the future but the cost is $$$$$. Anyone know of a source for purchasing one (Essential Oils Reference 5th Edition 2013 or newer – spiral bound full size) used?

    Just tried to sign up as a wholesale member but had to call the number since I was a previous retail customer. When I called I was told that I was somehow already assigned a sponsor? So I had to email the resolutions department to get the sponsor changed. Trying to wait to purchase the kit till the sponsor is straightened out. Uggh! We will see what happens.

    I love you to death, Genevieve, and have been following you since waaaay back. I’m a little sad that you have chosen to get into the whole oils MLM business and fallen prey to the YL deceptive marketing. I have quite a bit of respect for you, and love your unending pursuit of all things natural and good.

    I understand that you’re not interested in the “oil wars” between companies – neither am I frankly – but PLEASE do research outside the company you have chosen.
    EO’s are powerful, a form of medicine in fact, as I’m sure you’re well aware. But no MLM rep or company I have seen provides the whole truth. That there is no such thing as a “therapeutic grade” (marketing term). That the same EO that diffuses well is not suitable for topical use, or that a heavy dilution is necessary for some oils while others may be used in greater concentration. That using EO’s neat can be very harmful. That repeated exposure can “sensitize” you after a while and render the EO of choice essentially useless. That ingestion of EO’s is not recommended by any aromatherapy course, school, or organization (US and international).

    I love essential oils. I have about 5 different companies’ oils in my medicine cabinet, so this is not about the brand at all. I am concerned about the amount of deceptive marketing that has and will harm just as many people as the big MLM companies claim to help. :/ Please be careful!

    • Simone May 4 at 10:26 pm

      What essential oil companies do you recommend? There are so many out there and I’ve read many other blogs who say they would never buy from a MLM. I have a few in mind but I honestly have found one that really stands out. I just want the best and most effective product. Thanks! :)

    • Joy August 18 at 1:35 pm

      I am also curious what oils you use : )

    • Sarah October 1 at 11:33 am

      Hi Amanda – I’m also curious as to what brands you prefer. You mention safety concerns with using certain oils – could you give more information? I’ve been considering EOs for awhile but I’m concern about the safety warnings I see and I don’t want to jump in until I have more information. Thank you!

    I’ve been using YL oils for about 5 months now, and I’m amazed how many things they’re good for. While we were out of the country my kids started to come down with a cough and cold of some sort. I started putting Thieves all over them. Plus I dropped some, diluted, down their throats. It was stopped dead in its tracks and my kids were up and running in less than 48 hours. I’m still amazed how well this stuff works. I also started taking grapefruit and peppermint oil. My husband is too. He’s started losing weight without even trying, and I can feel my body slowly starting to as well. Deep Relief is a total God send for me, as my joints get inflamed very badly (I chase 3 Littles all day and night). There’s so many things they’re all good for! Love them!

    I am new to the whole essential oils and didn’t realize the many uses and ailments they could be used for. But the problem is I’m not sure what all the types of essential oils are used for or can be used for. In your video you mentioned books you have read and I was wondering if you could recommend any books for a beginner on essential oils? Thanks in advance and I’m a huge fan of your blog! Thanks for continuing to fill your blog with amazing info and your beautiful family!

    I love my YL oils. I have many various successes with them and am so happy but the biggest success i have had is that we have just gotten over our first ear infection in 4 months (I am a working mother of 20 month old b/g twins). My son was on antibiotic way too much for my liking and probably the doctors but he wasn’t ready for the tubes talk yet. We made it from December to March without an ear infection and those were the prime nose stuffy, teeth popping months! I also love the smell of thieves! i wear it daily and so do my kids but i really like it!!!! Enjoy!!

    I’ve been interested in using essential oils for quite a while now, but I haven’t had too much experience yet. However, I will say that for readers who have children with developmental or autoimmune disorders, be aware that herbalists and naturopaths use a completely opposite approach to olfactory medicine than therapists who study the brain. For example; my almost-five-year-old son has experienced all kinds of trouble sleeping since he “jumped” on the autism spectrum at two years old. Since we started practicing a more natural health and wellness lifestyle and I started researching herbs, I have been using lots of lavender, chamomile, lemon balm, catnip, etcetera… trying to help my son achieve healthy sleep. In December 2013 we enrolled my son in the Brain Balance Achievement Center of Atlanta (you can read more about Brain Balance in Robert Melillo’s book “Disconnected Kids”). Since then I have learned that my child, who’s left hemisphere is in overdrive and right hemisphere is suppressed, does not benefit from the herbs we are traditionally told are calming and relaxing. The left hemisphere of the brain, which can be thought of as our “gas pedal,” is stimulated by the smells of fruits and flowers–scents our bodies are programmed to automatically be drawn toward. The right hemisphere of the brain, which can be thought of as our “brake pedal,” is stimulated by more bitter scents that our bodies are programmed to initially draw away from (examples are peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, coffee, and chocolate). Because my child’s right brain is delayed/suppressed, and his left brain is in overdrive, using traditional calming scents like lavender actually hyper-activate him even further. Ever since I started using scents that activate his right brain (i.e., spearmint at bedtime), which tells his body to slow down, he has achieved much better sleep habits. I hope this information is helpful to others with children who have special needs.

    I started using essential oils years ago and have a medium size stash. I use them for too many things to list. They truly are amazing. I have never bought any from a independent seller, but am curious to learn about Young Living.

  11. Melissa March 29 at 4:04 pm

    I just became a wholesale member :) Thank you so much for the recommendation. The kit you showed really does have everything I was looking for. Can not wait for it to arrive!

  12. Monica March 27 at 12:27 pm

    I love essential oils and use doterra. Welcome to the eo world!

  13. Sam March 27 at 10:10 am

    i use Doterra oils and absolutely love them.

  14. Gael March 27 at 9:41 am

    Great video! I LOVE YL oils, problem is I use them too fast. :) My kids love putting the water and the drops in the diffuser too.

  15. Kate March 26 at 11:26 am

    Awesome I didn’t even realize they had diffusers like that. My husband has been pretty sad that I put a ban on glade plug ins and such from the house a couple years ago. I’m still learning about essential oils love pepper for headaches and fevers but also it’s got a nice clean smell and is powerful enough to cover up the smell of toddler poops in diapers so it’s my favorite right now. lol

  16. Daniell Powell March 26 at 7:51 am

    I have been using frankenscense in coconut oil to keep fine lines and wrinkles away. I rub it on every night before bed. I also use the peppermint to stop headaches. I rub it on my temples and breathe it in. Loving essential oils!

  17. Debbie March 25 at 5:03 pm

    This is an awesome website! Did you build it yourself?

  18. Tracy March 25 at 3:52 pm

    I’ve always been against “scenting” my house or body because of all the chemicals etc that are in them. So I am curious (having young daughters who want to wear perfume)…..theraputic grade is safe enough to eat…right? And do you find they cause headaches etc?

    Other than smelling nice what are the real benefits? I am a little skeptic that something you are just “smelling” can actually heal you…please help me out here :)

    • Belinda April 22 at 3:49 pm

      Essential Oils provide so much healing for ALL sorts of health ailments, diseases and issues with your body. They are so much more than a “nice smell”. I use essential oils for all sorts of things and have for years….headaches, sinus problems, allergies, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, etc. I could go on and on with the list. Please look into essential oils for all that they provide. And you don’t just smell them – you rub them on your body.

  19. Amanda DeWald March 25 at 1:07 pm

    So excited to see that you joined YL Essential Oils :) I recently joined as well and am LOVING my Everyday Oils Starter Kit. I use them all day long! I wrote to you a couple weeks ago about how you helped inspire me to start my own wellness page; well, its up and running now so check it out if you want (baby steps and just starting out on FB) :-) Have fun with your oils!!

Speak your mind
