I’m so happy you have your starter kit and are ready to jump into the oily world! One of the first things to decide on is where to keep your diffuser. Are you wanting to freshen up your kitchen? Relax in your living room with your family after a long day? Maybe need some sleep support for you or your kiddos in the bedroom at night? Wherever you decide to keep it, I almost guarantee that after you use it for a bit, you’ll be buying more diffusers for your other rooms.
Okay, we have the diffuser set up. What should we diffuse first? Here are some combos from your PSK that will get you started…
Sweet Dreams: 3 drops Lavender + 2 drops Frankincense
Immune Support: 2 drops Thieves + 3 drops Lemon + 1 drop Raven
Wake Up: 4 drops Lemon + 2 drops Peppermint
Unwind: 4 drops Stress Away + 4 drops Lavender
Clean Home: 3 drops Citrus Fresh + 2 drops Lemon
Bravery, Courage and Calm: 4 drops Valor + 2 drops Peace and Calming
The most important thing to remember when trying out essential oils is……play around!! Try different blends. Mix different oils together. Diffuse what smells good to you! Some of the best blends are made by being spontaneous and trying different things! Don’t be afraid to mess it up, you won’t, I promise.
The two oils left in your starter kit will be Panaway and DiGize Vitality. Panaway is great for tired muscles or a quick pick me up. Mix one drop of Panaway (remember, a little goes a long way when it comes to essential oils) with 4 drops of a carrier oil (Young Living V-6, Fractionated Coconut Oil, or whatever oil your family likes best) and rub where needed. Or, make a warm bath with Epsom salts and 8-10 drops of Panaway and soak your troubles away!
DiGize Vitality gives your digestive system support and is really one that turns people on to essential oils because it works so well. You can use it lots of way…in a capsule with a little oil, mixed with water and Peppermint or Lemon Vitality for a zingy little drink, mixed with hot water and honey for a soothing tummy tea, or rub right onto your stomach! Trust me, try it when you or a loved one needs some tummy support…you will be amazed!
And don’t worry! More oily education is coming your way when you get a starter kit with me. I want to empower you to use your oils with confidence and help make your home as cozy and healthy as it can be.
Happy experimenting friends!
