WELCOME TO THE OILY LIFE!
REAL QUICK: bookmark this page because it isn't linked anywhere else on my site #wink That way you can easily find it!
One important thing when working with essential oils is to remember the oils must always be used and stored in glass containers because the oils (specifically citrus oils) will leach toxins and chemicals out of plastic and then those chemicals will be in your recipes. This is also super important to remember when putting lemon/peppermint/grapefruit in your water. TJ Maxx and Target have some really cute glass water bottles right now!
Once you're in The Essential Tribe - facebook group - check out this unboxing the kit video, so you don't miss the secret compartment with your 2 extra oils and samples!
I want to quickly touch base on the difference between the Vitality line (white labels) and the regular Essential Oil line. Basically, if there is a vitality oil it is safe for consumption. Like the Thieves in the starter kit, BUT the 15ml Thieves regular oil is THE SAME OIL. The FDA just required Young Living to create a separate label for anything consumable. Is that clear as mud?
Basically, I'm saying when you run out of a vitality oil and go to re-order go ahead and get the less expensive big one. Just make sure you know which ones are and are not for ingestion. #gotthat? #mmkayletsmoveon
All of my favorite resources can be found on Amazon right HERE (click this), or you can click the individual links below, whatever is easier for you!
For Essential Oil use during pregnancy, childbirth, with babies and young children, I recommend the Gentle Babies book: link here
Several of the recipes I use are just easier if you make a 'roller' out of them so you can just have it on hand instead of mixing it up every time. For that, I ordered these roller bottles from Amazon: [link here]For the pollen buster capsules, I use these [link here] 3 drops each: lemon, lavender, and peppermint.

Let's talk carrier oils, carrier oils are what we use to introduce oils to our skin. The molecules are larger than the essential oil molecules, so it creates a bit of a "time-release" effect. Always use with kiddos and pets.
For a starter oil, to use with roller bottles FCO is my jam #easypeasy

An amazing tool is the Pocket Reference Guide.
This book is your guide to all things oils. This will help you self-diagnose and treat with oils. If you grab one thing, let it be this.
You'll be getting a few more emails to help you fall totally in love with this oil life. Tomorrow we'll break down all of the blends in the kit, some ideas of how you can use them.
