How to use Essential Oils

I'm often asked, "how can I use my essential oils?"  So, I thought I'd come up with a short list to help you realize how you can do this more often.  

Aromatherapy-

Direct inhalation: directly inhale the oil from the bottle

Diffusion:  use diffuser to disperse oil in a micro-fine vapor into the air.

Humidifier:  fill a humidifier with water then place a tissue or cloth, sprinkled with a few drops of oil, in front of the escaping vapor.

Steam:  place a few drops of oil in hot water, cover your head and the container with a towel, and breathe deeply and slowly.

Purchase: only products you KNOW are made with 100% pure essential oils, such as our Mists & Jars (soy candles) & Bars (soaps).

 

Topical application-

Direct:  essential oils can be applied directly to the crown of the head, to the temples, behind the ears, over vital organs, to the feet (No Fungus or Imminuty Boost Foot Mists are good examples), and many other locations.  Dilution may be required.

Massage:  essential oils can be used before, during or after therapeutic massage.

Perfume:  with natural, earthy, and exotic aromas, essential oils can be worn as perfume.  Many people wear our mists as perfumes or colognes as well.

 

I hope this was helpful to you.
