What Essential Oils Should I Buy First?

One question many ask when they begin with essential oils is, “What Essential Oils Should I Buy First?” While there are often some great kits out there and special deals that include some of my personal favorite oils, sometimes an individual budget means you can only buy a few items here and there. To help those who are just beginning their journey, I’ve compiled a list of essential oils that are must-haves right away. These are great investments that are versatile for multiple uses and will be favorites for daily regular use.

What Essential Oils Should I Buy First?

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil is a go-to oil to use for multiple things on a regular basis. Not only is it an excellent choice for diffusing or using in cleaning agents to brighten your home, but it is a great help to keep you more alert and awake. Peppermint has long been a great method of helping your respiratory and digestive systems.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is probably the most widely used oil around and is widely acknowledged to be safe for babies and children.  You can easily add Lavender to your list of oils to diffuse to help relax for a great night sleep, or to use on skin irritations. It is found in many bath products, lotions (like these lotion bars) and even in this Outdoors Spray recipe. Lavender is an excellent choice to use in a diffuser and topically on a regular basis.

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon brings that fresh and clean scent you love in your DIY cleaners, but it can also be great for combining with lavender and peppermint for a perfect relief to nasal congestion. It can be great for helping to boost immunity and works amazingly in cleansers, diffusing for a fresh smell in your home and topically along with other oils.

Homemade Thieves Pump

Thieves Essential Oil

Thieves is one of the most well-known powerhouse oil! It boosts immune systems and is a great choice for cleaning projects, homemade cleansers, and overall immune support. Diffuse on a regular basis, or apply topically for those who are looking to see a healthier immune system.

Wellness Blend

Where To Buy?

Head to this page to learn more about the Young living Essential Oils I recommend. They’re the only ones I use on myself and my children.

All of the oils may by diffused. The diffuser from Young Living Oils is included in your starter kit which freshens the air with natural fragrances. The diffuser disperses the oils without heat, which could render the essential oils less effective.

All of the oils can be applied to the Vita Flex points on the feet, added to bath water , applied topically or used with body and foot massage.


Along with your essential oils purchase, make sure you invest in a few other necessities. We believe these additional items are well worth your money and will help you to utilize your oils the best way possible.

A Quality Oil Diffuser

There are a ton of inexpensive oil diffusers out there, but you really do get what you pay for. When they are inexpensive, they often won’t diffuse well or break easily.  Invest in a quality diffuser that will last you an extended period of time. I like this one.

Coconut Oil

For topical applications, coconut oil is the preferred carrier oil. It is easy to use, affordable and rarely causes a reaction for anyone using it on a regular basis. Plus it is a great choice for softer and smoother skin.

These four essential oils and additional items are a great beginning to your kit. While we share great deals on sets along with upgrades on a regular basis, we do understand that sometimes a budget just won’t allow more than a few dollars each month for building your essential oils kits.
