How to Use Essential Oils

Experience the Benefits

Essential oils are concentrated extracts harvested from plants, herbs, and trees, which are carefully steam distilled or cold pressed. These pure, precious oils are more potent than the botanicals from which they’re extracted and contain powerful, concentrated health and wellness benefits.

Whether you use oils for aromatherapy, personal care, or as household solutions, all aspects of your life will get a boost with a few drops of essential oils! You can experience the priceless power of essential oils in several ways.

Aromatically: Breathe them in.

The easiest way to enjoy the aromatic benefits of essential oils is by breathing them in! Put a few drops into the palms of your hands, cup your hands around your mouth and nose, and inhale, breathing deeply for as long as you need. You can also use an essential oil diffuser to fill your home or office with your favorite scents or add drops of your favorite essential oils to a cotton ball and place it wherever you want to disperse the scent.

Topically: Soak them in.

Using essential oils topically is very popular. Some people move from casual oil users to devotees after learning how to use oils on the skin. Oils can help improve the appearance of healthy skin, improve a relaxing massage, or add zing to an invigorating one. You can enjoy a range of benefits by applying oils to the crown of your head, behind your ears, to your neck, temples, and bottoms of your feet. Also, if the aroma of an oil is too strong or your skin is sensitive, you can dilute it with a carrier oil such as Young Living’s V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex.

Internally: Take them in.
