Three Essential Oil Uses {with my Personal OBSESSION!}

So, here you are 

You've decided to take the time to learn a little more about the wonderful, little vials filled with natural goodness! I can't even begin to explain all of the benefits of using Oils and how addictive it becomes so I took some pictures… This is how much my habit grew over a 2 WEEK period! I love playing "mad scientist" and making blends for my family and friends to make our lives happier and much more balanced! I'm so glad you want to know more about essential oils! I am kind of oily obsessed right now!!

Here's an update of my collection after 4  months:

 Essential Oils have changed my families life and I'm so excited that we were able to make this change while my kids are still young enough to learn about this lifestyle and how to take charge of their own health!

  •  I only use high grade oils for my DIY products. Some essential oils will not be suitable for skin application, applications on children/pets or for therapeutic use. Please read below for more information.

There are 3 ways you can use your essential oils:


Aromatic uses of essential oils can heighten the senses and have positive effects for the mind and body.
  1. Inhale the oil directly from the bottle: simply smell it! You can rub a drop or two on your hands and cup your nose or just inhale directly from the bottle.
  2. Diffuse the oils with a diffuser which disperses the oils in a micro-fine vapor throughout the air. A diffuser does not heat the oils which can damage their therapeutic properties.
  3. Breathe in steamy vapors deeply by carefully pouring hot water into a glass bowl, adding in a couple drops of essential oils, and covering the bowl in a tent like fashion with a cloth or towel.

Topical Application:

Young Living essential oils are safe to use topically on our skin or even our pet’s fur. Because of their molecular structure, Essential Oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. It takes seconds to get them into our blood stream.

Vitaflex points on hands, feet, spine and ears that relate to organ systems and activate their reflex.  It’s the same electrical pathways in the body that accupressure and accupuncture work with.
Sensitive people may taste it in their mouth in a few moments.  Our pores on soles of our feet are very big and have great absorption so be mindful what you’re walking barefoot on and what cleaners you use or yard chemicals that you, your kids or your pets may walk on or if you stand in a bathtub when you clean it.   The pores on our feet absorb alot!

Internal Consumption: 

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.

But wait! Safety is Important!

There are 2 places we NEVER put essential oils
  1. In the eyes
  2. Deep in ear canal
If either of these accidently happens, it shouldn’t damage your eye but it will sting and you can put in a couple drops of a carrier oil and 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.

Skin Test:

It’s a good idea to skin test an essential oil before using it. Every body is different and just because one oil did incredible things for one person doesn’t automatically mean it will be a perfect fit for you, and in 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.
  • When trying oils that are new to you, 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.

And enjoy!

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.

Great information right?
