Essential Oil Starter Kit #2 is the second half of the top 10 essential oils that are great to start with. They come in a handy, closable tin and a user card.
This kit contains 10ml bottles of the second 5 out of the top 10 essential oils that you can start with. Start with just this kit or get both, there are no duplicates. You do need to get a carrier oil and my suggestion would be fractionated coconut oil. It's light, absorbs easily and doesn't stain clothing or fabric. Once you have used these oils, got a feel of your likes and dislikes, understand what your purpose for using the oils, you then will start chosing other essential oils and carriers oils to suit your needs.
