The Essential Oils of the Premium Starter Kit

This Premium Starter Kit is the perfect to get started on your oily journey because it has 12 of the most popular essential oils. These oils give you exactly what you need in your wellness arsenal, at well below half the price of buying them individually!

The kit also contains a diffuser, which works as a natural air freshener and home purifier. When diffusing oils, the diffuser helps support overall wellness and calm emotions. But the kit does not come with a one-size-fits-all diffuser. You get to choose from 4 beautiful different styles!

Dew Drop Diffuser has a blue light and runs 4-6 hours.
Dew Drop
Desert Mist Diffuser can run up to 8 hours and has 11 different light settings
Raindrop Diffuser is a beautiful black cermaic diffuser with a remote control.
Aria Diffuser has a round wooden base with a glass dome.  It comes with a matching remote control.


There are hundreds of uses for each essential oil in this starter kit. The kit’s oils have either colored labels or white labels. The colored labels are to be using topically (on the skin) or aromatically (smelled). The white labels come from Young Living’s Vitality line and are meant to be put into food or drink. Or put a drop directly under your tongue.

12 oils, 12 ways to use them. Prices of kit with diffusers: Desert MIst is $165, Dewdrop is $165, Rainsote is $210, Aria is $265.

What’s the difference between the regular oil and the vitality? Absolutely nothing. Because essential oils were originally used as perfumes in America, they are still classified as perfume by the U.S. government. But no matter how a bottle is labeled, every product Young Living makes is 100% pure and unadulterated. To learn more about the exacting standards Young Living uses, please check out Seed To Seal.

To give you an idea of some of their most popular uses, here’s a brief overview of each oil.


Lemon Vitality oil

Lemon essential oils is cold pressed from the rinds of lemons.

It contains powerful antioxidant d-Limonene. (Please research this compound!)

Diffuse for an invigorating atmosphere may promote mental clarity.

Fun fact: It takes 25 lemons to make one 5ml bottle of Lemon essential oil!

Suggested Uses for Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon is a great natural cleaner. I’m sure you’ve heard products advertise they have the “cleaning power of lemon.” Lemon essential oil is a very highly concentrated form of lemon.

  • Gets permanent marker or crayon off almost anything.
  • Great for cleansing the skin.
  • Use to remove sticky residue.
  • Give your laundry a boost of freshness.

Lemon Vitality is labeled to be ingested:

Always use citrus precautions:

  • If you’re going to be outside and want to use any citrus oil, apply to an area that will be well-covered as the sunlight can cause a skin reaction similar to sun burn.
  • When ingesting citrus oils never use a plastic container. Citrus oils dissolve plastic and can release plastic molecules into your food or beverage. Always use glass or stainless steel.



Peppermint Vitality oil

Peppermint is distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the plants.

It takes 1 pound of plant material to make one 15 ml bottle of Peppermint essential oil.

Fun Fact: 75% of the world’s supply of Peppermint is grown in the U.S.

Peppermint has a bright, invigorating scent. Many people love to diffuse it when they need to concentrate, such as at homework time, or during their mid-afternoon energy slump.

  • Diffuse for an invigorating scent or for mental alertness.
  • Dilute in vegetable oil and use as a muscle rub after workouts.
  • Rub on before workouts to support performance during exercise.

  • 10 drops Peppermint
  • 10 drops Lavender
  • 10 drops Lemon
  • 1 1/2 ml organic jojoba oil
    • (or fill to the top)

Laender Essential oil

Lavender is steam distilled from the flowering  tops of plants.

Lavender is called the Swiss Army Knife of oils because it has so many uses. Its great for all things skin.

Young Living’s Lavender tests higher in constituents than most French Lavender oils!

Fun Fact: it takes 9 square feet to make one 5 ml bottle oil.

Many people are surprised how powerful Lavender smells when the bottle is opened. Remember there are a lot of flowers in that bottle! Here are some great uses for Lavender:

Suggested Uses for Lavender Oil:

  • Diffuse for a relaxing aroma to help promotes feelings of calm.
  • Lavender is great to diffuse before bedtime.
  • Add a drop to lotion to smooth the appearance of healthy skin.
  • Add a drop to your favorite conditioner to support healthy hair.

DIY Bath Salt

One of my favorite ways to use Lavender is to add 4 drops essential oil to 1 cup epsom salt. Mix well, then pour into hot bath water. (Always dissolve essential oils in espom salt before adding to bath water or the oil will float on top of the bath water.)


Frankincense essential oil

Young Living Frankicense is distilled from resin of Boswellia carterii trees in northern Africa.

Frankinense is Holy annointing oil of the Middle East and was used in religious ceremonies for millennia.

The Wise Men brought Frankincense to the baby Jesus.

Frankincense is called the King of Oils because it supports every system of the body. It was mentioned in an Egyptian scroll from 1500 BCE and used by the ancient Chinese to support overall health.

Suggested Uses for Frankincense:

  • Frankincense has a woodsy, warm balsamic aroma. Diffuse it during times of meditation or for emotional grounding.
  • Excellent for massage after activity.
  • Add to your favorite lotion to smooth the appearance of healthy skin.
  • When in doubt, grab Frankincense or Lavender!

The Frankincense bottle in the Premium Starter Kit is not labeled for ingesting. However here are some ways you could use the Vitality Version:

  • Add 1-3 drops vitality version to a gel capsule and fill with carrier oil (such as organic, cold pressed olive oil) to promote healthy cellular function.
  • Place 1 drop Frankincense Vitality under the tongue for a calming effect.

My favorite use is to make a rollerball of equal parts Frankincense and jojoba oil. I roll it on the backs of my hands every day for smooth healthy skin.

My favorite blend that contains Frankincense is Longevity, which is a combination of Thyme, Orange, Frankincense, and Clove.


Digize vitality

The Digize combines these five potent oils into a blend that gives wonderful digestive support.

  • Tarragon—promotes healthy digestion
  • Ginger—soothes & comforts irritated digestion
  • Peppermint—promotes healthy bowel function
  • Juniper—Helps cleanse skin and support urinary system
  • Fennel—supports circulatory, glandular, respiratory, digestive systems

Digize Vitality is labeled to be ingested. Add to a gel capsule healthy digestion after a large meal.

Digize is not among my favorite smelling oils, but it works! It can be used to promotes feelings of well-being during menstrual cycle. If you like the scent, diffuse it for a rich, calming scent.


Thieves Vitality oil

Thieves was created after the founder of Young Living researched how essential oils were used throughout history. Over and over he kept coming across the story of four 15th century thieves. They were robbing graves, yet never got sick. When they were eventually caught they were offered clemency if they told their secret. They were soaking handkerchiefs in a combination of herbs. Young Living added Eucalyptus Radiata and named the blend Thieves.

Thieves is the most well-loved (and most copied) Young Living blend.
