Which Essential Oils Should I Start With?


There are hundreds of different essential oils, but you don’t need that many essential oils in your medicine cabinet to reap their benefits. One essential oil can be used SEVERAL different ways. Therefore, an essential oil collection of 10-15 oils is really all you need to assist in supporting, affecting, and maintaining overall health and wellness. If you are just getting started on your essential oil journey, I highly suggest the Premium Starter Kit because it includes a diffuser and 11 versatile bottles of essential oil. Plus, when you purchase your kit from me, I’ll send you just over $20.00 worth of gifts and a 14 day Members Only E-Course. You’ll also get access to our Oil Moxie resources for support!

The 11 essential oils from the Premium Starter Kit can help maintain wellness in the body and can be used to support several of your body systems! Below is some information on each of the 11 essential oils from the Premium Starter Kit – and this info only scratches the surface!
