Today I will show you what is in the famous Starter Kit and how we use it in our daily life. Yes, the one me and all the other people who are dedicated to helping others integrate Young Living essential oils into their daily lives are always talking about.
I can smell it before opening the package!
It’s so beautiful!
Oh! There is yet another level! This is so cool!
These are some of the pearls of the people who receive their Starter Kit for the first time. These are phrases of excitement, joy and hope that I have been collecting since I began this journey of helping others.
The Starter Kit includes an ultrasonic surgical plastic diffuser (a must when using 100% pure essential oils), two samples of the super antioxidant and delicious juice Ningxia Red, a roll-on accessory and 10 2ml bottles where you can start making your own blends, and as a climax the 12 essential oils of therapeutic grade:
Copaiba, DiGize, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Orange, Peppermint, Panaway,
Purification, R.C., Stress Away, Thieves
I wake up and put Peppermint and Lemon in the diffuser, so the whole family wakes up with energy and vitality.
Then comes my most important moment of self-care of the day: first a few drops of Lemon with half a teaspoon of MSM powder (for muscle and joint health) and the juice of half a lemon. This alkalizes my body for a better overall health and the juice gives me a shot of vitamins and helps to cover the taste of MSM, because it isn’t very pleasant to be honest … After having a quiet breakfast comes the time to wake up the wildlings.
While Daddy takes the little one to the nursery, I take the opportunity to do some yoga (the day I don’t make it is because I’ve overslept …). I put Frankincense in the diffuser to help me meditate and connect with this sacred ME moment. You can imagine how much I enjoy it!
On the bathtub bottom (away from where the water runs) I put two drops of Peppermint and RC, especially this time of year when it gets colder it is great. Vapors help diffuse it into the air in the bathroom, so we all benefit from having a stronger respiratory system and as an extra dose of energy.
When I get out of the shower I put on my homemade deodorant with coconut oil and Purification, one of the most powerful antibacterial blends of Young Living. Did you know that the smell from sweaty armpits comes from bacteria? Sweat alone doesn’t have any smell.
After washing my face comes my natural facial care ritual: Lavender and Frankincense are wonderful for the skin, moisturizing and helping eliminate wrinkles and skin imperfections, helping minimize marks or scars and loads of other benefits in addition to how great they smell. That’s why they are included in my daily use serum!
And if I find any spots or pimples, with a swab I apply a little Purification to help disinfect and dry.
I have a roll-on prepared with Thieves, and before I dress I put it on my feet to protect my immune system and strengthen it. This is how I stay in good health and don’t get sick often. In case I feel that I already have something, I also apply it along the spine. And if I feel a tickling in the throat, hint of a cold, cough, or the like, Purification straight on my neck to put an end to any bugs!
When I brush my teeth, I add a drop of Orange to help whiten naturally. And it doesn’t damage enamel!
When I get back from shopping, I put all the vegetables and fruit to wash. First I clean the sink with Thieves to disinfect, and then add baking soda and a few drops of Lemon and let it soak for about 5 minutes. Then I let them air dry, and goodbye pesticides! Did you know that pesticides are one of the most common endocrine disruptors? The fruit and vegetables stay fresh much longer after this spa-worthy treatment.
And while I wait for it to dry in order to store everything, I quick-clean the bathroom with the Thieves multipurpose cleaner, which cleans and disinfects without toxic ingredients that can be breathed, and it’s not aggressive on the skin. I also use it on kitchen surfaces. Then I use Purification to eliminate odors and air-borne bacteria, spick and span.
I put a load in the washing, with the Thieves detergent, and apple cider vinegar instead of commercial fabric softener which is filled with poison for our body and for the environment. I add a vegetable capsule with 3 drops of Purification to disinfect. If there is any garment with a stubborn stain, I make a paste with baking soda and Lemon, and apply before throwing it into the washing machine.
In Germany we eat early! Together with my meal I drink a glass of water to which I have previously added a tiny pinch of salt and two drops of Orange. It gives a very rich flavor and I am helping my body get rid of unnecessary toxins by activating glutathione. It also helps eliminate free radicals and delay the aging of my gorgeous body’s cells. So I don’t drink juice loaded with unnecessary and unhealthy sugars!
If I eat too much, or I have a heartburn that day, Digize saves me from any digestive discomfort. Massage the belly for a full stomach, indigestion, diarrhoea, gas or even vomiting, and ciao cacao! For heartburn, I apply it on the diaphragm. Not even Rennie takes it away faster!
The joy of the house arrives, I take him in my arms and … the horror! Lash on the back! I apply local Panaway instead of taking an ibuprofen or putting on a Voltaren-type cream, and in a little while I feel much better. If the pain is really bad, I combine it with Copaiba, which is a wonderful anti-inflammatory.
In the diffuser of the little one I have Orange and Thieves, to create a happy emotional anchor around coming back from school, and to strengthen his immune system after spending all day playing with his friends. If he comes with a stuffed nose and / or cough, RC on the chest and Purification on the throat.
Hanging the clothes that I put in the washing machine this morning I bumped my leg, so I apply Lavender (the Swiss army knife of essential oils) directly on the area to avoid getting a bruise.
And since the little one is a bit hyperactive, we all put Stress Away on wrists and neck. So he can calm down, anus as well… And it smells so good!
It’s dinnertime! I have added a few drops of Lemon to the hummus, which, as all citric oils, activates glutathione to help the liver eliminate toxins, and is highly antioxidant, which delays aging. Can you imagine getting a beauty treatment while eating? We also add 1-2 drops to the dessert yogurt to flavor it, without having to resort to those synthetic flavors that are sold. Same with Orange.
It’s the little one’s bedtime. In the diffuser we put Lavender, which helps him sleep, and Orange, which activates the limbic brain where happy memories and positive thoughts are. And don’t even dare forgetting his oily routine every night, he will reminds us if need be! Thieves on the feet and spine, essential to strengthen your defences, RC on the chest if he needs to expectorate, Purification on the neck if he has a cough, Digize on the belly if he has discomfort. And if that night is a bit rough and he doesn’t want to go to sleep, Stress Away for anxiety.
Our time of night has arrived. Now we put Stress Away and Orange in the diffuser, and it’s quality time for my man and me. Sometimes I give him a massage with Frankincense and Copaiba on his shoulders, as he works all day on the computer and he gets sore. This combo is highly anti-inflammatory and I also use it in the abdomen area if I am pre or menstrual, and it calms me so much.
Goodnight! I wash impurities and makeup off my face and apply homemade toner made with rose water, Copaiba and Frankincense. Lemon diluted in carrier oil is my natural anti-dark circles, and my facial moisturizer carries the same vegetable oil with Lavender, Incense and Copaiba. This protects my skin deeply, moisturizes, unifies the skintone and prevents nocturnal inflammation.
Before sleeping, Thieves on feet and spine (by now you will know why), Panaway and / or Copaiba in any part of the body that is hurting (including a headache) and a few drops of Lavender on the pillow to get a totally restful sleep.
