Your Young Living Starter Kit! Congratulations on beginning your essential oil journey. Our mission is to help make the journey fun, informative, and empowering!
I remember when I first received my kit and a sense of bewilderment came over me. All these beautiful oils… they say they are great for me and my health…. but how do I use them? How do I incorporate them into my life.
Well there is SO much information out there, this blog site is dedicated to helping you learning about the oils and how to apply them in real life!
The Hippie Kits are designed for you to have the tools to integrate them and begin making DIY recipes to support the areas in your life you need supported.
These two kits together provide the groundwork and framework on assisting your in your journey! We will make it easy peasy 🙂
First, dive into each of the oils and their uses/benefits. We limited the list of properties as not to overwhelm you but to give you an idea of how and where to use them.
Young Living recently launched their Vitality* line of essential oils. (Read about them here). You can still diffuse and use them topically, they are now FDA approved for ingesting.
So explore and don’t worry. We will expand into the single oils more as we go! Take it slow and begin your journey!
