Welcome – Starter Kit

I know, it’s super exciting when that box comes in! So much to look at and so much you want to do. But before you jump into that box, let’s go over a few things to get you started on the right foot.

First of all, let’s go through the contents of your box…

NOTE: If you purchased your kit in a different country, the contents may be different. Please mention this in a post in our Droplets group and we can list what should be in yours.

**Basic Starter Kit**

If you purchased the Basic Starter Kit ($45), you will have the following:

“From Our Fields to Your Family” box (white. You will slide the cover off and then lift from the side using the gold ribbon. When you open it up you will see a pocket on the left with literature.

The literature in this pocket are:

  • Member Welcome Letter
  • Oil Usage Guide
  • Essential Edge
  • Distributor Agreement

On the right, you will see the pockets that hold ten essential oils. They will be empty. Now lift that box of pockets and you will see another gold ribbon. Lift that and you will find:

*NingXia Red Packets: Put them in the refrigerator, they are best when served cold. You may also mix it into orange juice, sparkling water or make a smoothie with it if you are not a fan of the taste of it alone.

Outside of the two boxes you should find:

  • Product Guide
  • Product Price List
  • Essential Oil Magazine

**Premium Starter Kit**

You should have TWO individual boxes within your order.

The bigger box (purple) will be the diffuser. Because you now have the ability to choose your diffuser, you have one of these four:

  • Home Diffuser (white flower with purple top)
  • Dewdrop (cone shape)
  • Bamboo Diffuser (tall & white)
  • Aria (circular)

The other box is white with “From Our Fields to Your Family” written on it. You will slide the cover off and then lift from the side using the gold ribbon. When you open it up you will see a pocket on the left with literature.

The literature in this pocket are:

  • Member Welcome Letter
  • Oil Usage Guide
  • Essential Edge
  • Distributor Agreement

On the right, you will see ten essential oils. These are 5ml bottles of the following oils:

 Now lift the box the oils are set in and you will see another gold ribbon. Lift that and you will find:

*NingXia Red Packets: Put them in the refrigerator, they are best when served cold. You may also mix it into orange juice, sparkling water or make a smoothie with it if you are not a fan of the taste of it alone.

Outside of the two boxes you should find:

  • Product Guide
  • Product Price List
  • Essential Oil Magazine

Now that we know what’s in the box, what should I do next? 

START SLOW! Did you hear me? START SLOW!

Diffusing: We suggest you start with diffusing first. Look at the directions for the diffuser you own. Fill to the water line or red dot with tap or distilled water. If your tap water is hard water, you will not want to use that, be sure to buy purified of distilled water.

Add 1-2 drops of the oil of your choice. Run the diffuser for about 30 minutes. Take a 2 hour break and then start again for another 30 minutes. As you and your family get used the oils, you may extend the time and increase the drops.

  • Small rooms (bedrooms): You only need 1-3 drops.
  • Large open rooms/areas: You will need 5-8 drops.

Applying Topically: Dilute! Dilute! DILUTE! If you do not have a carrier oil, such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil or sunflower oil, go get some. You will want to have these on hand.

These are pure oils and a little bit goes a long way. Start with 1 tsp of carrier oil to one drop of essential oil. For children 6 and under, double to the carrier oil. For children 2 and younger, triple the carrier. This is for safety and longevity of the oils. You only need a little bit. The carrier oil does not affect potency, it just slows down absorption, giving your body time to adjust.

If you have sensitive skin, you will want to do a patch test (with the dilution) on the most sensitive areas of your skin. If your skin reacts, add more carrier oil. Do not flush or wash with water. That will push the oil in further.

You are welcome to mix the oils in a small glass bowl and then apply. Be sure to keep them in glass since some oils go after toxins in plastic and will break it down. You don’t want that ickiness mixed with your oils.

Ingesting: Whether in a capsule or drinking in water, start with just one drop. Eat food and drink water along with it.

When mixing oils with water or juice (to drink), use a glass/ceramic cup or mug. Again, we use glass because some oils go after toxins in plastic and will break it down. Remember, you don’t want that ickiness mixed with your oils.

IMPORTANT: If you and your family are not water drinkers, you will want to start NOW! As your body begins to react to the oils, you will need the water to do it’s natural job of flushing out toxins. If you or anyone in your family begins to experience headaches, dizziness, etc, turn OFF your diffuser for a while. If it’s after applying topically, add more carrier oil.

If still feeling out of sorts, get some water and fresh air immediately. Open windows & step outside. This may mean that your senses may be overwhelmed and it may take a little extra time for you/them to adjust. It’s ok and it’s completely normal, but this is WHY you must start slowly. Drink more water and take note of which oil you diffused, applied, how long, etc.

Once your family (and your pets) slowly get used to the oils in the air and/or on your body, you will be able to increase essential oil drops as needed. Just increase one drop at a time and diffuse a little longer, or apply a little more. Take your time and watch & listen to your body.
