One drop of peppermint oil is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea and 5,000 pounds of rose petals are required to make 1 pound of pure rose oil, so you can see that the price is well within reason of what it takes to produce it. It is a superior oil with excellent qualities and benefits.
The Premium Starter Kit is made up with every day oils for things we encounter every day, like a sore muscle, or the occasional blemish, or itchy eyes, or in my case a dog that gets sprayed by a skunk. It is exciting to learn how plants have been used to make oils that will help us maintain our health.
When you buy something like a linen spray at the store and spend a minimum of $10.00, that bottle is mostly WATER and possibly a little bit of fragrance like Lavender or such (not pure essential oils). And remember we are talking about therapeutic grade essential oils that have a health benefit and is not toxic.
Example: When I make my "Air Spray", I use 10 drops in a 4 oz spray bottle of distilled water. I also use my Air Spray to enjoy the outdoors sort of as a camping spray that I can spray on my ankles or clothes. At 6 cents a drop, of Purification (at wholesale), and a spray bottle that costs a dollar. I have spent less than $2.00. I have used both Thieves and Purification (as separate sprays) and when our dog got sprayed by a skunk, we used the Air Spray on him a few times and on the front porch a few times to clear the air and get rid of the smell, pronto. The oils are non toxic, and they smell good too.
Buying a Premium Starter Kit is great place to get started and experience the oils. If you need my assistance, I will be happy to help you. Young Living Member #1176855
