Opening your Premium Starter Kit is so exciting! It can also be overwhelming. So many new things to try, and you want to dive into all of it – but sometimes you just need to know where to start. Here is where to start – follow this 12-day challenge to experience all the oils in your kit and start learning how to use them to support your wellness!
Day 1 – You just got your Premium Starter Kit – open it!! It is packed full of essential oils, your diffuser, samples and reference materials. First things first – take those two packets of NingXia Red in the bottom of your kit and throw those in the fridge, you’re going to try them when they are chilled! Now, let’s start out with using one of the most versatile essential oils – Lavender! Unbox your diffuser and fill it with water up to the fill line. Add 3-4 drops of Lavender essential oil and turn on your diffuser. Enjoy the relaxation!
Day 2 – Lemon essential oil! Lemon tastes awesome in water, and that is the easiest way to start using it. Just put a drop or two in your water (make sure it is in a glass container) and enjoy how refreshing it is! It’s also great in smoothies or other recipes, like salad dressings and Lemon Blueberry muffins. Lemon is also good for supporting overall wellness, immune system, and flushing toxins out of the body.
Day 3 – RC essential oil blend is an amazing blend to put on before bed, it has 3 types of Eucalyptus in it. It feels great rubbed on your throat and chest, even a touch right under your nose. Tonight, apply one drop to your throat/chest, back of neck, upper back, or even feet. Do you like that spa aroma? How does it make you feel before you sleep?
Day 4 – Peppermint essential oil – Enjoy your peppermint today, put some in water or tea or hot chocolate! Peppermint goes so well with chocolate – try these double chocolate peppermint brownie bites!
Day 5 – Copaiba – notice that it has a very faint scent and doesn’t really have a have distinct taste or smell, it is distilled from a resin. Copaiba is great to add to your Ningxia Red, tea or a veggie capsule. Studies show that Copaiba supports the body’s natural response to any type of injury or irritation. I encourage you to look at your reference materials to learn some of the amazing things about Copaiba. Try it today – a drop on your tongue, or in your tea. Copaiba is also considered a magnifier, when added to other oils it can boost the effects of those oils – I like to add it to PanAway and rub over muscles after a workout.
Day 6 – Frankincense – Frankincense is an oil you’ve most likely heard of in the Bible. It is a very versatile and safe oil. Open it and smell it, how does it smell to you, how does it make you feel? Frankincense is grounding and great for meditation, it is also perfect for the skin. I love using it in my facial moisturizing serum recipe. Today make a simple facial moisturizer – in a small glass bottle with a dropper add 2 drops of Frankincense and 2 drops of Lavender, top it with your favorite carrier oil (I use Argan oil, other popular oils are avocado or jojoba). Smooth a few drops of this mixture over your face to moisturize and support smooth skin. Frankincense is another oil that deserves some attention in your reference materials, review your reference materials to get the most out of your Frankincense.
Day 7 – Thieves – Get a cup of warm water, put a little raw honey in it, add 1-2 drops of Thieves essential oil blend – stir it around and drink it up! This will help your immune system SO MUCH! It is also really soothing for the throat, enjoy!
Day 8 – PanAway – Such a valuable oil! Today mix a drop of carrier oil (olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, etc) with a drop of PanAway and rub into whatever part of your body is a little sore. This could be your shoulders after a long day at work, the back of your neck, your wrists, knees or back – whatever area needs a little extra support and attention. PanAway is a blend that is very supportive of the musculoskeletal system and great to apply whenever it needs a little extra help.
Day 9 – DiGize – This is a go-to oil for digestive system support. It is a blend of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Anise, Patchouli, and Lemongrass. My preferred way to take this oil is a few drops in an empty veggie capsule after a meal. Today, try it straight – take one or two drops under your tongue after your next meal. How does it taste to you? How did it make you feel?
Day 10 – Purification – Today put a few drops of Purification in your diffuser. You’ll notice how it gets rid of any odors and makes the air feel crisp and clean. Purification is also an excellent oil to support your emotional state – if you have occasional anger or are dealing with a child throwing a tantrum, put some Purification on their liver point and you’ll see that anger melt away.
Day 11 – StressAway – our bonus oil! Open the bottle and take a good whiff, it has a little lime and vanilla to it. There is a lot of science behind this blend. It includes lime, copaiba, vanilla, lavender, cedarwood and ocotea. This is the oil you take with you to the grocery store with kids – or on the expressway at rush hour. Today try rubbing a drop or two of StressAway on your wrists, neck, and behind your ears. Another way that is great to enjoy StressAway is in your water or NingXia Red!
Day 12 – NingXia Red – Your packets should be in the fridge, go grab one and drink it! NingXia Red was developed after Gary Young began studying longevity in other cultures and found the NingXia wolfberry from the NingXia province of China. The wolfberry is similar to the goji berry. NingXia Red supports the immune system, digestive system and gives an energy boost. It is delicious! You only need 1-2 oz per day to realize the benefits of NingXia Red.
