Essential Oils

What is an Essential Oil?

Uplifting, protective, calming, and regenerating, essential oils are a unique gift from the natural world. Often referred to as “nature’s living energy” or the very essence of a plant, essential oils are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds.

Ways to Use Essential Oils

Topically – Essential oils can be applied topically to the skin.  Some oils require dilution with a carrier oil before rubbing them on the skin, such as coconut oil, olive oil, or Young Living’s V-6 blend.  You can apply some oils neat, which means without diluting.  Popular areas include ears, temples, soles and tops of feet, abdomen and upper back.

Aromatically – Essential oils can be inhaled from the bottle or diffused in the air with a diffuser.  They can also be dropped on a cotton ball or wet cloth and inhaled.  Inhaling certain oils heightens the senses and can have MANY positive effects, emotional and physical.

Internally – Because Young Living essential oils are medicinal grade, many of them can be used internally or taken orally as a dietary supplement or can be used for cooking/food flavoring.  ALWAYS read the bottle to see if a specific oil is safe for internal use.  NEVER use a lesser-quality brand of oil internally (the bottle of another brand usually says “Not for internal use!”)
