All About the Premium Starter Kit


If you're new to Young Living Essential Oils, the Premium Starter Kit is the very best way to get started. And the very best way to learn about the oils is attending one of our Essential Oils 101 classes. But you’re busy, right? We get it. And while nothing can replace the sights and scents of a class, we’ve put together this page to be the next best thing.

So, when you need an oil that helps support healthy digestion (DiGize!) or a blend to grab for immune support (Thieves!), you’ll have one place to research and refresh. Consider this an Essential Oils 101 class that you can take anytime, anywhere. Scroll to find the top use, a quick, get-started-now tip for each oil, and, if you're ready to learn more, a link to an in-depth post by one of our members about how to use the oil in your day-to-day life.

Sit back, pour your favorite hot beverage and start learning today!
