Ways to use essential oils:
This is the easiest way to use doterra essential oils. Here are a few ways to use them aromatically
Diffusing is great for purifying the air, boosting your mood, supporting good sleep and opening up your airways. You can diffuse anywhere-car, home, work! Simply add a 4-5 drops of essential oil to your diffuser.
You can open the bottle and smell right out the bottle
You can inhale the oil by putting 1 drop of oil into your hands and rub together, cup hands over your noose and mouth and inhale through your nose.
There are many benefits to applying oils topically. Because of the molecular composition, they are easily absorbed by the skin and can quickly enter into the bloodstream.
It is recommended to use a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil or almond oil when applying topically. This will help the essential oils to absorb into the skin much better and will help with any possible skin sensitivities. This is especially important with little ones and elderly as their skin tends to be more sensitive.
Where to apply- one of the most common places to apply oils is the bottom of the feet. This skin is not very sensitive there so it’s great for little ones. Just make sure you put socks on after application so they don’t grab their feet and rub their eyes.
You can also apply the oils to a specific body region that needs concentrated support for example, temples and neck for head tension, over the heart and down the spine for emotional support or on joints and muscles for extra support.
Safety: Do not put oils in your eyes, nose, or ear canal. If you ever get an oil accidentally into one of those body parts, use a carrier oil to dilute it out. Just pour the carrier oil on, wipe it off and continue until sensitivity stops. (DO NOT use water).
This is a LARGE reason why i use and trust doterra. Any of our bottles that have a “supplement” label can be taken internally while bottles that say “ingredients” should only be used aromatically or topically. Essential oils can be used as a daily dietary supplement to support healthy body function.
There are several ways to take oils internally.
-place a drop under your tongue for immediate absorption
-add a drop of peppermint or any citrus oil in a glass of water
-fill an empty veggie capsule (you will want to take these soon after making them because the capsule disintegrates with time)
When you are drinking oils in water, be sure to use glass, aluminum or ceramic as certain oils break down plastic.
I only recommend ingesting doterra essential oils as each bottle is 100% pure essential oil. Please do not transfer this information to any other brand as the quality of oil is unknown.
