Most Popular Essential Oil Starter Sets
Essential oils are useful in home remedies, homeopathic treatments, and aromatherapy. Essential oils are usually made by suspending a distillation of the plant’s extracts, including fragrance, into an all-natural oil. Essential oils are a good way to store the benefits of healing extracts such as Peppermint and Lavender. They keep well and are convenient for many home remedy recipes. Just make sure that you carefully read the instructions for the essential oils. Some aren’t meant for consumption and some may irritate your skin. If you are new to using essential oils you might want to try an essential oil starter set. These essential oil starter sets will usually contain small bottles of the most popular oils, such as lavender oil, peppermint oil, lemon or lemongrass oil, eucalyptus oil, and more. If you are new to home remedies and homeopathic treatments, you might want to start with a smaller set of essential oils until you’re more familiar with them. Essential oil goes a LONG way with just a few drops; a small bottle will last you a long time, so you probably will be okay starting with a small bottle. Below are two of the most popular essential oil starter sets on Amazon, and they should be a good place to start.
Here are some popular essential oil starter kits

“I got these as a gift set as anyone who knows me knows that I prefer all-natural to anything else and I also have seen results in natural healing often beating out Western medicine. Essential oils vary greatly both in quality and how they are used. I can only speak a bit on my own uses. I know some use as a natural preservative, some can be taken internally, some make their own perfumes… I don’t do any of that although I do take olive leaf extract which is a close cousin. While some may not know the phrase “essential oil” they probably have heard the term “aromatherapy” and this is where the essential oils come in. It’s been shown that certain aromas can have an effect on both your psychological and physical well-being via stimulating certain parts of the brain to trigger reactions and via the natural molecules entering the lungs can offer therapeutic benefit for many. In additon to that, many just smell soothing so it can create a calmer home without people and animals breathing in fumes and artificial chemicals to do so.”

Review from the Amazon product page
“A very good sample kit for people just wanting to test out the whole “essential oil craze”. I got them for some of the homemade cleaners that I was making, seeing as I didn’t need a whole lot. There are some that will probably never get any use but other than that they are great. Very nice quality and will probably buy individual scents of this brand in the future.”
