Starter Kit Oils

The Premium Starter Kit includes some of Young Living’s most popular essential oils, accessories and samples. It’s offered at such an amazing price, and they are only available to new members.

They are hands down the best way to get started in your oil journey. You can read all about the Starter Kit here.

The Premium Starter Kit currently comes with 12 oils.


One of the most calming scents, Lavender is most commonly known as the “sleepy time” oil. It’s also one of the most recognizable oils, as it’s a very popular scent for soaps, perfume, beauty products and more.

This oil is a must have for those who are just starting to use oils as well as those who have been using oils for years.


It’s incredibly versatile. It can be used to support healthy skin and help with damaged skin. It can help to support respiratory functions through the cold season. And of course, it can help you sleep well.

Peppermint Vitality

Another scent that is loved all year round. From cold winter nights to hot summer days, the brisk scent of peppermint is always refreshing.

Peppermint Vitality is well loved for its ability to support digestion and gastrointestinal comfort. It’s also said to support healthy weight management.

Because it’s part of Young Living’s Vitality line, this oil is perfectly safe to ingest, whether you add it to a beverage, baked goods, or take it as a daily capsule for maximum digestive support.

Lemon Vitality

Lemon Vitality is one of the easiest oils to use throughout the day. Add a drop to your water in the morning, use it in cooking or baking, and add it to DIY cleaning recipes for fresh, clean scents.

Lemon Vitality contains antioxidants and can help to support a healthy immune system. Not only can it help to cleanse the body, but it can help remove stains from clothes as well as sticky residue left on windows or other surfaces.

Anyone have kids?


Valor is exactly what it sounds like. It’s the bravery oil.

Need a bit of courage? Then you just need a bit of valor.

This essential oil blend is a favorite due to it’s woodsy, earthy aroma made up of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Camphor Wood, Geranium and Frankincense. Think fresh pine needles and hearty soil.

Use this oil to help feel grounded, to remind yourself that you can do it and that the circumstances around you aren’t going to bring you down.

Peace & Calming

What more should we say? This blend is filled with amazing oils: Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. This is easily one of Young Living’s most popular blends.

It’s sweet, it’s calming and it’s perfect for getting your kids(or yourself) ready for a great night’s sleep.

Use Peace & Calming to quiet your mind, uplift your mood, and find comfort and rest wherever you are.


By default, we all know and love this oil, as it is famous for being given to Jesus when he was born. Coincidentally, it’s known as the “holy anointing” oil. It’s used widely for spiritual and meditative practices.

It’s earthy, uplifting aroma can be used to create a comforting and safe environment to help you focus or process emotions.

It’s full of supporting properties, but is held in high regard for helping maintain radiant and healthy skin. Use it in a roller or add it to facial moisturizers.

Thieves Vitality

This spicy blend is another one of Young Living’s most popular oils. So much, in fact, that they have developed an entire product line using this oil blend that can replace so many harmful products from your everyday life.

Everyone I show Thieves to instantly loves the unique, spicy aroma. With the Thieves household cleaner, I clean as often as I can now!

This is definitely one to include in your daily routine.

Filled with antioxidants and cleansing products, Citrus Fresh is great for supporting your overall wellness. Use it to purify the air or boost mental clarity and energy!

Add this oil to savory food such as chicken or fish, salads or pasta. You can also add it to your water to help encourage you to drink more throughout the day 😉


Raven is a powerful and robust oil made up of Ravintsara, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, and Wintergreen essential oils. With a cool, minty and sweet aroma, you’ll depend on this guy when the weather starts to get the best of you.

PanAway is a powerful, yet gentle oil that combines Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint essential oils. Refreshing, sweet and minty, this blend is meant to invigorate and refresh.

Perfect for your post workout routine, PanAway cools and soothes the skin after physical activity. Help to relieve tension by rubbing this oil on your neck and shoulders.

PanAway also makes an excellent addition to a foot massage after a long day on your feet, or add a few drops to a warm bath along with some epsom salt.

Stress Away

It’s pretty clear right away that this oil is going to be one of your favorites. We all wish stress would leave us alone. This amazing and unique blend will definitely help 🙂

Stress Away combines  the exotic and tropical scent of Ocotea, from Ecuador, with the pleasant aroma of lime and vanilla, along with Copaiba, Lavender and Cedarwood. This well rounded blend will create a calm and relaxing environment.
