The Essential Oils First Kit

essential oils 4packThis was my very first Essential Oils (EO) kit. It has all the basic essentials (Melaleuca, Lemon, Peppermint and Lavender. These are all the EOs you need to get started on some really great recipes for health, well being and freshness. They changed, completely, the way I add aroma to my home, along with salves for skin, healing and natural sleep aid. No more plug in oils (which can cause fires), or aerosol sprays, candles which produce soot. No, I’m now using EOs to do the very same thing, yet in a much more cleaner way. I use a diffuser, or pump spray bottle to clean the air in my home and leave an all over fresh, cleaness. I’ve made several more blends which I’ll share in future posts.

I’m new to the Essential Oils world, yet learning quickly, and I’m totally convinced of their benefits to good healing, living and well-being. These oils are really are great. And the Spark Naturals Essential Oils Starter Kit is perfect, especially if you’re new to EOs or just have no idea what they’re about and don’t want to spend a lot of money on something your unsure of, well, give this kit a chance.
