Young Living Starter Kit Review

Premium Starter Kit with Rainstone Diffuser

Premium Starter Kit with Rainstone Diffuser

Young Living is a powerhouse when it comes to essential oils. It’s difficult to do any research on the subject without their name popping up, which is a good thing if you are a fan of their oils. I am a fan for several reasons, but we will get to that later. The fact that you found yourself here, reading an article on starter kits, then I think it would be safe for me to assume you are new to the world of essential oils. I remember my first experience with oils and my first round of research on the subject. It was overwhelming to me because I guess I didn’t realize how complicated it all was.

I’m not going to give you a huge lesson on essential oils right now. For today, we are going to take a look at a beginners product by Young Living, a company who has established a great name for themselves in the essential oil world for supplying consumers with pure extracts.

Who Are They?

Knowing a little bit about the source of your essential oils is, well, essential. There is a good deal of distributors with products on the market that claim to be “extracts” but are actually diluted with fillers or carrier substances. This isn’t the case with Young Living according to their biggest fans.

Gary Young, the founder of the company, was a pioneer in the forefront of modern society’s introduction to aromatherapy and the benefits of essential oils can bring to your everyday life. Unfortunately, Mr. Young passed away in May of 2018, and he leaves behind a legacy of family, friends, fans, and coworkers behind.

Most importantly, he leaves behind a company that has grown tremendously since it began in the late twentieth century. The reason it has been so successful is due to the company’s reputation for purity in their products.

Their Process

Seed to Seal® is a series of tests that their company puts every batch of essential oils through from investigating the farms they source their product from to the time the seal clicks on that little brown bottle on its way to being shipped out to customers. They also involve a third-party facility to test their batches, just to be sure. The types of testing these oils go through are quite intricate and extensive.

Distillery. Machines for distillation, few people near the machine

Young Living is based out of Spanish Fork, Utah and houses a facility that is as high tech as it gets in the essential oil business. Science is an important tool in their process and their scientists are some of the best in the industry.

As a person who is interested in essential oils, a starter kit is a way to go. The idea in this product that you get a little bit of everything. There are singles for blending and blends for enjoying, and after looking at the initial description of this product, I am impressed at all the scents they offer in this kit.

Below, I will go into each part of this kit individually, but for now, we want to look at it as a whole since this one-time purchase is chock full of great scents and goodies. Let’s look at them quickly. With this starter kit you get:

  • Lavender 5ml

  • Copaiba Vitality 5ml
  • Frankincense 5ml
  • Thieves Vitality 5ml

It’s Worth Mentioning

This kit, if you haven’t picked it up by now, is intended for people who want to start their own business selling Young Living essential oils. They have a sales model called Network Marketing Home Business, which is kind of like Avon or Tupperware. For those of you who don’t know what those businesses are, it’s a model where you purchase the product and sell it to your friends, families, and coworkers.

Quite a few companies are run with the same type of business model and are highly successful while offering people an opportunity to own their own business. As with anything else, what you get out of it will equal what you put into it.

The Kit

If this kit is starting to sound good to you, then keep reading. We will touch on each part with a little more detail. Each of the following products is in a 5 ml bottle, which equals anywhere from 100-120 drops of oil.

Young Living: Lavender in white background

Lavender (Aromatic | Topical)

This oil is one of my favorites, and I own the Young Living brand. A little goes a long way, and I can personally vouch for its purity. It’s a great scent to diffuse when you are looking to relax or relieve some stress.

Young Living: Peppermint Vitality

Peppermint Vitality (Dietary)

I also own this oil. This is the first one on our list that was created with consumption in mind. That’s why the word “vitality” is added to the scent. This one word should help you distinguish between the oils you can consume and those you can’t. This oil was created to promote a healthy gut. A drop in a pint of water in the morning should start your day with a refreshing flavor.

Young Living: Lemon Vitality

Lemon Vitality (Dietary)

Here, we have another oil I own. With the addition of “vitality” in the name, we know that this oil is also meant for ingestion. This flavor adds freshness to vinaigrettes or can bring out the flavors in fresh vegetables.

Young Living: Copaiba Vitality

Copaiba Vitality (Dietary)

Made from the gum a Brazilian tree with the same name, this oil has a pleasant flavor that is complex. It is recommended to put two drops in a capsule to promote wellness. Pregnant and nursing women should consult their doctor before taking, and it should be kept out of the reach of children.

Young Living: Frankincense

Frankincense (Aromatic |Topical)

This oil is one of my favorites. I couldn’t wait to get it when Better Mind Body Soul sent me some to review. I diffuse it quite often and love the musty scent when I am sitting at my computer writing which I feel helps me focus.

Young Living: Thieves Vitality

Thieves Vitality (Dietary)

Named for a blend of scents first used by robbers in France stealing from plague victims so they wouldn’t contract the disease. It has a spicy and sweet flavor that can be added to a capsule, to your morning oatmeal or cereal, or in a cup of water.

Young Living: Citrus Fresh

Citrus Fresh (Aromatic |Topical)

The name alone catches my eye because I love the aromas of all citrus fruits. This combination is meant to uplift your spirits and give your home a refreshing scent.

Young Living: Raven

Raven (Aromatic |Topical)

Since I am a fan of Edgar Allan Poe, it’s not surprising the name of this blend intrigues me as well. It’s a combination of Peppermint, Ravintsara, and Eucalyptus Radiata, among other extracts. It is meant to give a cooling sensation when applied topically.

Young Living: DIGIZE

DiGize (Aromatic | Topical)

This blend gives off a calming effect once diffused. With the combination of oils in this blend, Young Living feels they can add to your wellness regimen.

Young Living: PanAway

PanAway (Topical)

A friend of mine also owns and swears by it. She says it works wonders on her sore muscles, and when she applies it topically, she can feel it penetrating the deeper tissues

Young Living: Stress Away

Stress Away® (Aromatic| Topical)

I own this blend and love it. My stress levels can spike at times, which is fine because that’s what life is about at times. A few drops in my diffuser, and it all melts away.

Young Living: AromaGlide Roller Fitment

AromaGlide Roller Fitment

This product will allow you to use your favorite oil or blend into a roll-on bottle, which would work great after the gym.

Young Living: Thieves Household Cleaner

Thieves Household Cleaner

I own this product and feel it cleans my counter tops very well. I like the scent and can dilute it in as much water as I want, which is recommended on the bottle.

These are business cards meant for you to run your business.

Young Living Sample Oil Bottles

10 Love It? Share It! Sample Oil Bottles

These will work great with the roll on filaments for sampling when you have customers who want to sample.

2 NingXia Red® 2-oz. Samples

2 NingXia Red® 2-oz. Samples

This drink mix is intended to give you a daily boost of pure essential oils. You just drink one 2-oz sample one to two times daily for best results.

What Are People Saying?

There was very little to go on, but it seems that the majority of consumers that purchased this product were not too happy with how expensive it was. They loved the oils though, and there weren’t any complaints on the quality of the product.

  • Great selection

  • Ample amounts of blends
  • Ample amount of singles
  • Pure oils in every bottle

CONS

  • Expensive
  • Is meant primarily for those looking to start their own business

Who Should Buy This

I think this starter kit is best suited for someone who already knows about essential oils and is considering creating their own business selling Young Living’s product. If you are a person who has no experience with essential oils, I feel this is too much of a commitment for you. You are better off buying a few oils at a time.

But, if you are a fan of essential oils and are interested in the prospect of informing your friends of the many benefits available via aromatherapy, then this kit is perfect for you. The quality is there, but do you want to sell it?

To Conclude

Young Living is a company that is synonymous with essential oils and their use in modern day society. Selling oils is a lucrative living and I know someone that does it. Still, if that’s too much for you to take on, then this isn’t the kit for you. If this opportunity sounds intriguing then, by all means, dive in. It sounds like an adventure to me.
