Essential-Oils-Starter-KitAre you curious about essential oils, but don’t know where to start?

Essential oils have amazing benefits and there are endless possibilities to choose from. That’s great, but if you’re new to using them it can be very overwhelming!

Even the starter kits with smaller bottles get pricey, so I suggest picking a few basics to get going and get used to using. After all, you’re not going to be creating a bunch of intricate concoctions as a beginner!

I started with lemon, peppermint, and lavender essential oils. I like those because they are well known and have lots of uses. If you’re not sure what to do with them yet, but you know you want to change your lifestyle and improve your health then use them for aromas in the beginning.

I got an inexpensive aroma diffuser and I love it! It came with lavender oil, but it wasn’t a very good quality so the aroma was weak. All you have to do is put water in it and a few drops of essential oil!

Aroma diffusers are a great alternative to air freshners and other unnatural household products!
