Creating use of Essential Oils does not need to be made complex! Yet you do desire to comply with a couple of great techniques to enjoy the real advantages!
Check this out …
We can use Young Living Essential Oils in 3 means:
TOPICALLY AROMATICALLY INSIDE DIETARY SUPPLEMENT
The FDA has labeling regulations for dietary supplements and also cosmetics. They prefer to see these as different labels. The FDA asked Young Living to pick the PRIMARY use that lots of people utilize an essential oil for as well as that is just what YL has consisted on the label.
Since our essential oils have actually been typically utilized in all 3 methods and also as a result of the first class quality of our essential oils, to keep it simple, start with the key use YL needed to choose what gets on the tag and after that go from there as you please for your household.
Aromatically Fragrant uses of Essential Oils can heighten the senses and also have positive effects for the mind and body. Inhale the oil directly from the bottle: Yes, just smell it! You could rub a drop or two on your hands and mug your nose or just inhale directly from the bottle. Diffuse the oils with a diffuser which distributes the oils in a micro-fine vapor throughout the air. A diffuser does not warm the oils which can damage their therapeutic apartments. Inhale steamy vapors deeply by carefully putting warm water into a glass dish, including in a couple drops of essential oils, as well as covering the bowl in a camping tent like fashion with a cloth or towel.

Due to their molecular structure, Essential Oils are quickly absorbed by the skin. It takes seconds to get them right into our blood stream.

Many Young Living essential oils are safe to ingest as a dietary supplement or food flavoring. It’s always important to follow the recommended dosage on individual product labels before taking oils internally.
You can put essential oils in empty veggie capsules, in your water, put a drop in raw honey, or on bread. Citrus oils eat petrochemicals so use glass or stainless steel oinly to drink oils from.
Adults can make rectal or vaginal suppositories with oils diluted with a carrier oil in a capsule before bed or lying down for a few hours. This can give 100% absorption as opposed to orally which is 70-80% absorption. Please dilute your suppositories with a carrier oil like olive oil because some essential oils are hot.
Of course, using essential oils in DIY cleaning products, beauty recipes, or personal care items is another simple way to utilize the power of essential oils.
But wait! Safety is Important!
Before you start there are a few things I’d like to recommend. Because I want you to love your essential oil experience the way I do. So, do this mama proud and take care to do the following before jumping in:
There are 2 places we NEVER put essential oils
- In the eyes
- Deep in ear canal
If this happens, it shouldn’t damage your eye but it will sting and you can put in a couple drops of V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex , it takes the sting out in seconds!
Do NOT use water! Oil and water don’t mix and sting will be worse. If you don’t have access to a carrier oil (in the car, at a restaurant, etc) find something fatty like milk or butter.
Start Slowly with the Diffuser
Start with just 2-3 drops of oil in your diffuser for a 15 minute time period. If all is well then increase the time intervals. The
Young Living’s Dewdrop™ Diffuser will run for about 3-4 hours and after this
initial test period, feel free to run it as long as you are able and with up to 8-10 drops of essential oils. We tend to use fewer of strong oils like Joy for example and more of fresh, citrus oils like Lemon!
It’s a good idea to skin test an essential oil before using it. Because every body is different and just one oil did incredible things for one person. Could it automatically mean it will be a perfect fit for you? Some rare instances an oil may irritate your skin:
- Start with just one oil or blend at a time.
- Apply the oil (neat or diluted, as indicated on your bottle) to a small area first.
- Allow enough time (3 – 5) minutes for the body to respond before applying a second oil.
- Placing oils on the bottom of your feet is most often a safe place to use essential oils topically if you experience irritation elsewhere.
Be careful when using with other chemicals
Most people don’t think of their skin as full of chemicals, but certain things like cosmetics, personal-care products, soaps, and cleansers can contain synthetic chemicals. Your skin may have residual chemicals hanging out that could come in contact with your essential oils. Some of these chemicals, especially petroleum-based chemicals, can penetrate and remain in the skin and fatty tissues for days or even weeks after use. Essentials oils may work against such toxins that are stored in your body, whether from personal care products, food, or the environment. This is another reason why you’ll want to do a skin test. If any redness or irritation occurs, dilute the area with a carrier oil and then cleanse with soap and water.
The oils aren’t bad for you and are gently detoxing your body of these chemicals, but you may find it beneficial to reduce use or stop using the oils for a few days and then try again slowly. Here are some natural detox efforts can help cleanse your body safely. If you are ready to try again, do a skin test (diluted for all oils, this time) and wait 30 minutes to see if there is any reaction.
Keep “Hot” Oils Away from Children
Oils such as oregano, cinnamon, thyme, eucalyptus, mountain savory, lemon, and orange… or blends like Thieves, PanAway, Releive It, and Exodus II should be stored away from children (although, really, I keep all my oils away from my children!). These are also the types of oils that should always be diluted for both children and adults. If a child swallows an essential oil:
Seek immediately emergency medical attention, if necessary
Give the child milk, cream, yogurt, or another safe, oil-soluble liquid to drink
Start with Some Basic Oils
Because the world of essential oils is so vast, it’s easy to get overwhelmed when you are first starting out. I highly recommend choosing some basic oils and begin using them. This is truly the best way to learn about their potential and how they can fit into your life. I personally recommend the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living as it includes 10 everyday oils that are the most popular oils with 100 uses. It also comes with a diffuser and information on how to jump right in with the oils in a safe and effective way. (Not to mention that the initial investment in the package will save your money and the oils will last a long time!)
You can learn more about the kit and get one here.
Okay, now that we got the technical safety stuff out of the way, don’t stress too much about using the “wrong” oil. Reactions or burning sensations to the oils are most often an indication of fast blood flow to that area. Oils don’t burn the skin the way a chemical can. If an oil doesn’t work for you, there are always other oils to try until you find what’s the best fit for your body. Essential oils metabolize in the body quickly. They do their goodness and then move on. You want to be safe, sure, but unless you’re doing something ridiculous you should be just fine.
