Investing in an essential oil kit is one of the best ways to get everything you need while saving some extra cash. But with so many options to choose femur how do you know what you really need and what is not really necessary. In this episode, I share the top 5 must-have items for the perfect essential oils starter kit. 

5 Must-Have Items for Your Perfect Essential Oil Kit 

Essential Oils 

This might sound like a no brainer, but the last thing you want to do is purchase junky essential oils adulterated with fragrances, synthetics, and other cheap fillers. Always look for high quality oils and companies. Check out our buying guide, here. 

Watch out for:

  • Oils that don’t dissolve entirely on a piece of white paper 
  • Oils that are super cheap and labeled without the Latin Name 
  • Oils stored in plastic 
  • Oils that come in scents like watermelon (there is no such thing) 
  • Oils from incredibly new companies with small selections or make claims like “oil can cure cancer” 
5 Essential Oils You Need in Your Starter Kit 
  1. Lavender 
  2. Lemon
  3. Peppermint
  4. Wild Orange 
  5. Frankincense 


On your hunt you must look for an essential oils starter kit with a diffuser! Diffusers allow you to passively experience the benefits of essential oils- without even thinking about it. 

Having an essentials oil starter kit with a diffuser is one of the best ways to take advantage of the power of essential oils. 

A Reference Book 

A reference book is great for looking up essential oils and specific issues. It will also have a ton of DIY recipes—everything from weeknight dinners to anti-aging serum to wood cleaner. A reference book will help you get the most out of your starter kit. I love the Essential Life book

Carrier Oil 

Carrier oils carry essential oils into the body and they are necessary to reap the therapeutic benefits when using oils topically. There are a few different kinds including coconut oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, and jojoba oil. My favorite is fractionated coconut oil. 

Roller Bottles 

A roller bottle is a small dark bottle with a stainless steel ball top filled with essential oils and a carrier oil. Roller bottles are convenient and great for using on the go because they already contain prediluted oil. 

Create any kind of blend you want for your specific goal and roll on wrists, back of the neck and spine to access the nervous system.
