Essential Oils Starter Kit

essential oils starter kit

I have a large essential oils arsenal now, but I don’t know that it’s a good thing. When I first started buying I wanted everything and I had a wholesale account, so I proceeded to collect. I don’t use everything I collected, in fact my essential oils could use some Marie Kondoing. I have been asked a few times what are my go to, use all the time oils, so I put together a list to share.

Essential Oil Starter Kit

  1. Lavender – most versatile of essential oils
  2. Tea Tree – antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial
  3. Peppermint – digestion, respiratory and anti inflammatory
  4. Chamomile – calms nerves, good for skin and also anti inflammatory
  5. Eucalyptus – good for every season antiinflammatory, antibiotic
  6. Geranium – good for skin, menstrual cycles, helps people feel secure
  7. Rosemary – headaches, colds, muscles, concentration
  8. Thyme – should be used in moderation, but is antiviral and helps with fatigue
  9. Lemon – smells so good and blends well with others, but it’s also good for digestion, skin, and your lymphatic system
  10. Clove – antibacterial, antiseptic and numbs. plus it’s warming

Bonus Oils

if you’re feeling super prosperous these are my top 5 $$$ oils.

  1. Helichrysum (aka Everlasting) – promotes healing and recovery
  2. Sandalwood – good for stomach cramping, reduces anger, relaxes, and fights infection
  3. Neroli – smells like heaven, antibacterial, grounding, reassuring, and calming
  4. Rose – calms, elevates mood, great for dry skin
  5. Frankincense – helps with skin, anxiety and depression

I buy organic when it is possible. When it’s not possible due to price I buy essential oils that don’t require pesticides and save my money for things that would be heavily sprayed, such as rose.

      Clove makes the best soy/palm candles for the winter. Helichrysum is heavenly it helps with scaring and I sometimes use it as a perfume.
