When I got my kit, I had already spent
hours weeks prepping and planning on how to use my new oils! My phone literally ran out of storage space from all the screenshots I had taken of ways to use them. (I also take a billion pictures of my kids…).
One of the major trends I noticed from seasoned oil users, was the advice to “take it slow.”
At first, I thought “No way! I am ready to diffuse, dilute, apply neat, and all those other new words I have learned!” Then, after reading posts complaining of headaches, small rashes, etc. from other newbies, I came up with a new plan.
I started by following the instructions in the kit that say to pop in the roller ball and put Stress Away on your wrists while reading the materials. I may have gotten a little overzealous with the Stress Away, and WHEW! That stuff is STRONG SMELLING! Definitely go light!
Our kiddos have been sick on and off for two weeks, so I diffused a few drops of Purification in both of their rooms. The smell was definitely different, but I liked it. It smelled clean.
At bedtime I diffused a few drops of Lavender and Thieves. Ry, who sometimes fights bedtime, was actually excited to go to bed with his new “light” in his room 🙂
That is all I did on my first day of using oils. Now my second day…that’s another story (and another post!)
Here is the kit that I ordered. It came with 11 oils, a diffuser, and more samples!! If you are interested in YL oils, I definitely recommend the Premium Kit. It costs more initially, but it comes with SO MUCH and helps you see what you can do!
