Essential Oil Starter Kit

Essential oils hold so many amazing benefits for just about anything and everything you can think of. If I could recommend one thing in this entire world to everyone, it would be essential oils. I got started with essential oils around two years ago, and it has changed my life in so many ways. Not to mention essential oils are a great hobby as there are so many things you can do with them!
Essential Oil Prices
Like many great things in life, essential oils can be expensive depending on the quality and amount of each kind you are looking to buy. This is something that turned me away from essential oils at first, but couldn’t keep me away for long. Because essential oils can be used for endless things, including health benefits, I knew it was worth my money to invest in buying some.
If you are looking to put your money into essential oils (which again is a great investment) I have some advice. Essential oils can be very expensive and add up quickly when you are buying them. For example, a bottle of lavender essential oil can cost as little as $4 and as much as $40. There are different qualities of essential oil, and you always want to make sure you are aware of the quality that you are about to purchase. With that being said, lavender is of the most common and of the cheapest kind of essential oil. So just to put it in perspective, if you are looking to buy 10 bottles of different essential oils that are good quality, prepare to spend anywhere from $50 – $100. Again, it can get expensive.
I hope I’m not scaring you away, because the benefits of essential oils surpass the price by far. Instead, I hope you are getting excited about all of this (it’s a lot to take in, I know). When I first started my journey with essential oils, I knew they were out of my price range as I wanted each and every kind there was. There are essential oils for cooking, for cleaning, for health, for relaxation and so much more. With that being said, where do you start? Which oils do you buy first? Do I have to have the best quality? I know these questions are circling your mind, as they did for me as well when I first got started.
Buying In Bulk
My answer is simple. Start with it all! It’s hard to know which essential oils you will like the most and that will benefit you the most if you don’t actually own them. With this mindset, I made an amazing choice and bought 64 essential oils all at one time! This was an impulse choice made from a new love and obsession with essential oils. I went from owning 2 essential oils to owning 66 essential oils within two weeks and wow was I a happy girl! The best part is that I saved so much money by buying 64 at one time. I ended up spending $200 for 64 essential oils, which may seem like a lot of money, but is actually an amazingly good deal. Again, for only 10 essential oils bought from a store, I could be paying close to $100. So if I bought these 64 essential oils in stores, I could have easily spent well over $600. $200 is nothing compared to the actual cost of each of these oils, and I don’t regret this purchase at all.
Interested in these 64 essential oils? You can find them here, along with everything you need to know about what you will be buying in this set. This set comes with an amazing essential oil case as well, which I will use for years (more about the case below).
About the Oils
The essential oils included in this set are all “premium” quality, meaning they are superior to other brands and are, in other words, the best. Something I found great was that the company, Healing Solutions, states and promises, “If you are not ABSOLUTELY amazed, receive a full refund from the manufacturer, Healing Solutions, no questions asked!” I knew I would enjoy the oils, but it was nice to know that if I didn’t, I could return it and get my money back without being questioned by the company. Trust is a huge part of my life, and this made me trust the company and what they are about. I made the purchase and didn’t think twice!
The essential oils that come with this set include the following:
- Anise Star
- Chamomile (Roman)
- Chili Seed
- Cinnamon bark
- Cinnamon Leaf
- Fir needle
- French Lavender
- Geranium Egypt
- Ho Wood
- Juniper Berry
- Key Lime
- Lemon Eucalyptus
- Peppermint Pharma Grade
- Sweet Orange
- Tea Tree
- Ylang Ylang
The essential oils highlighted teal above are some of my favorite ones in the set, although I have used each and every one at least once! Even if you don’t get this case, I recommend these essential oils to everyone who asks! As you can see in the image above, there is one without a label. This is because I used this essential oil completely and am now using it for a mixture I made! This is another reason this is such a great purchase; not only are you buying 64 essential oils, but you are also buying 64 reusable bottles that you can use in the future.
Many of the oils listed above are great to use in an essential oil diffuser, too! I use lavender, tea tree, juniper berry, grapefruit, and sweet orange the most. Check out the diffuser I use, and the one I recommend to everyone I know!
Each bottle holds 10 ml of essential oils, and each bottle comes with a dropper cap inside (as shown below). You simply tip the bottle as if you were pouring something out, and the oils come out of the small hole in the center in one-drop form.
One negative about these dropper caps is that some essential oils come out fast and some come out slow. Please be aware of this when you are pouring your oils with specific amounts in mind. To avoid using too much, I simply use a glass dropper stick for the oils I know I can’t go over with. This ensures I get the exact amount of drops I need. I recommend doing this, although it is not necessary at all.
Another reason this is such an amazing purchase is because of the case it comes with. I was expecting the oils to come in a cheap black case that would break easily, but I was wrong. The 64 oils came in a thick, black leather case with many amazing features to it. These features include:
- A thick, durable handle for carrying (feels like carrying a briefcase)
- A divider that includes two pockets for paper on one side, and a small spot for an ownership card/business card on the other side
- Individual essential oil straps to hold each essential oil in place
- Soft and cushioned inside to prevent breakage
I will be using this case long after my essential oils are gone, and I’ve even gotten compliments on it from family members who are also into essential oils! The only negative about this case is the smell; there are so many oils in here that the case itself has a strong scent. I can smell it within a foot away from it, but not when it is put away from me. I’ve narrowed the cause of the smell to be from the garlic and onion essential oils (they are soooo strong-smelling). I have these two oils in a plastic bag inside the case, and the smell is gone now, so I recommend doing the same!
As you can see, this purchase is well worth the price if you are serious about getting starting with essential oils. There are endless things essential oils can do for us, and I wish more people looked to essential oils for health benefits, stress benefits, and more. If you are serious about essential oils, having a little bit of everything at your finger tips to experiment with is a great way to go about it.
