After talking to a few friends about how they want the kit but monies, I got to thinking 'I should put together a list of cheaper oils to show how awesome young living is at making sure EVERYONE can afford essential oily goodness'. And now I'm finally getting around to it.
Below, are oils under $15, $20, $25 and my bonus 2 oils under $30 that deserved a special mention. As Christmas rolls around, I wanted to show you in the internet lands, how versatile these oils are and how they work, and not just OOO LOOK cheap stuff!
Whenever people hear the word 'premium' they think of higher fees, more to worry about, and over all more expensive.
What if I told you premium meant cheaper and better?
A premium starter kit has the home diffuser, everyday oils kit with 10- 5 ml bottles of those seen above, a 5 ml stress away that can be converted to roll on and samples of thieves, peppermint, lavender, peace and calming and ningxia red.
And all of that costs $170 CDN. That's it that's all.
If you did the math, the oils ALONE would be $175 for all 5 ml bottles, more if they were 15 ml. The diffuser ALONE is $80 dollars. And you get all of that, and more, for only $170.
Today, I didn't feel like typing too much as I'm pretty busy packing for a wedding in Edmonton so I decided to make a video instead. Enjoy!
And it was terrifying.
My panic attacks came back in full force, my body kept trying to get me to sleep in when I had to get up (especially when the child's routine changed and I had to be there for 830 or worse, 745), and I felt like I was distancing those around me because I was just a ball of emotion.
In comes Young Living. I gravitated to this oil right away when I opened up the starter kit. When you order the premium starter kit you get the diffuser, everyday essential oils (10 5-ml bottles) and the starter kit which comes with samples of ningxia ningxia, thieves, peace and calming, peppermint and lavender, and a 5ml bottle of stress away with convertible roll on lid. I smelled it, I rubbed it all over my body, I wondered where it had been all of my life. You know that saying 'if stress made you lose weight, I'd be a supermodel?' Well, if that were true, I'd probably be in the hospital because I would be paper thin. I don't do stress well.
Stress away is a blend of vanilla, lime, copabia, cedarwood, ocotea, and lavender. It can be diffused to help stress away your room, or it can be applied topically. When I first applied this it went on my wrists. I'd look strange in public smelling my wrists, but if it got to that point, I would not care. I was stressed enough already. Some days I will put it on the back of my neck so that I can smell it a bit easier too. Stress away is also a key part of the 'anxiety trio' which consists of valour on the back of the neck, joy over the heart, and stress away over the wrists. And, as are most of the oils in the starter kit, it is in my diy sleep cream (a lot of oils I know, but it works!)
