Home Essentials – Kit or Split?

The big conflict I see new enrollees often having is whether to sign up with the Home Essentials enrolment kit (15ml bottles), the Essentials Collection kit (5ml bottles) or with a custom enrolment that allows them to get the same oils as the Home Essentials kit, but over a 3 month period where they can earn free oils as they go. Personally, I couldn’t wait to get started, but I wasn’t sure where/how, so I started with the Home Essentials Kit. I often wonder, if I had my time over, would I do the same thing again. And to be honest, I don’t know! I do know that it was a larger up-front cost than my partner was prepared for, and perhaps I should have split it up over a few months of 125PV+ so that I could still get the same products, but with free product along the way. I have outlined each option below, so that you can compare and decide for yourself.
