Three Ways to Use Essential Oils
- Use a diffuser to dispense a few drops of your chosen essential oil throughout the day or night. This is probably the most common method of using the oils because everyone in the room benefits. Whether you diffuse the oils in your home, office, classroom or workout space — the air is permeated with these precious oils.
- Place a single drop in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. Cup your hands over your nose and deeply inhale.
- Add a few drops to your household cleaners, or simply create your own cleaners and sprays with combinations of oils, water and other natural solutions such as vinegar or witch hazel.
- Add a few drops to a cloth thrown in your dryer with your clothes for a truly fresh load of laundry. No more fabric softeners.
- Add a couple of drops to your pillows (Lavender is a lovely choice) for a restful sleep. Or add some oils to a spritzer bottle with water to chase away “monsters” for the little ones before bed.
*Caution: All essential oils are not created equal. Not all essential oils can be ingested. Make sure that the oils you are using are certified pure therapeutic grade and the label indicates that it/they are safe to take internally.
- Add a drop or two of your chosen oil to your water bottle (*glass or stainless steel bottles only) for an infusion of taste and an immunity boost throughout your day. The citrus oils such as lemon, grapefruit (my fave) and wild orange are always a refreshing taste sensation.
- Some oils are rather harsh to ingest, or you may simply not be crazy about the taste of a certain oil, but the benefits are still wanted or needed. So a drop or two of an oil (or combination of oils) can be added to a veggie gel cap and swallowed. Problem solved.
- Replace dried herbs with the same essential oil in your recipes — such as basil, rosemary or thyme.
- One drop of oil goes a long way … (approximately 1 drop equals 2 teaspoons of most dried herbs)
- For hot recipes such as soups or sauces, just be sure to add the oils once the recipe has cooled a little. The essential oils can be destroyed if added to boiled or extremely hot foods/beverages.
Apply directly to the skin or dilute with a carrier oil (such as Fractionated Coconut Oil, olive oil or jojoba oil) for systemic or localized effect
- for massage, immune support, topical therapy
- to head, neck, temples, ears (outside of ears only), chest and throat
- to bottom of the feet for quickest absorption into the body
And finally … Why I chose the company I work with … and you can too!
- The essential oils are sourced from all over the world
- Lavender from the fields of France
- Frankincense from Oman
- Peppermint from Washington state
to name just a few …
- Wherever the best growing conditions are — be it soil quality, temperature or rainfall — those are the locations where this company goes in order to bring these exceptional products to you.
- The company involves the local communities in growing and using ethical harvesting practices to attain the highest quality essential oils. Each individual batch of oil undergoes seven different testing procedures, from three outside sources, and surpasses all USDA organic standards, or that batch is not good enough for them to use and are sold to other companies. These oils are often imitated, but never duplicated. If you would like to use oils that are certified pure therapeutic grade then Contact Me for details.
