So How Exactly Do I Use Essential Oils?

I thought the same thing when my gorgeous Premium Starter Kit arrived at my door!  Have no fear, understanding these basics about essential oils will make you the ‘go to’ expert for all your friends. Typically, oils are used in one of three ways.

How to use essential oils:

1. Aromatically
2. Topically
3. Internally

How to use essential oils aromatically

The aromatic (or aromatherapy) use of essential oils may be the most familiar. Have you smelled Eucalyptus in the spa or suana of a gym? Lavender in the massage room? You can get the incredible benefits of essential oils by using a diffuser to disperse the oils into the air.  Not sure which diffuser to buy? Check out this diffuser comparison chart. But, you can also place 1-2 drops of oil in your hand, rub your palms together and inhale for an aromatic experience.

How to use essential oils topically

Wait! I can use essential oils on my skin?  Yes you can IF you use a superior quality like Young Living. Let’s be real, I’d much rather place Lavender on my skin to improve the look of my skin, instead of just walking by my diffuser and smelling it. Right?! Of course, you must be cautious of sensitive skin and citrus oils that can cause photosensitivity. Depending on how you need to support your body system, you may place a few drops of oil on your head, neck, wrists, feet, abdomen and so on!

How to use essential oils internally

And probably the least known but most amazing thing about Young Living is their Young Living’s Vitality™ line–a wonderful selection of oils that you can ingest for amazing health benefits! Young Living’s Vitality™ line was developed to provide a clear distinction between oils for internal use and those for topical and aromatic use. All are the same pure, authentic essential oils, that Young Living has labeled differently so there’s no confusion!

What Diffuser Should I Buy?
Why diffuse? I never really thought about the connection our minds make with scents. But think about a memory you have that is associated with a certain smell. Does the smell of lemon remind you of fresh laundry? Or perhaps ginger of your grandmother’s famous cookies? When we diffuse certain essential oils into the air it can bring back positive associations (which lifts your mood) AND because diffusion distributes essential oil molecules into the air so effectively, you are simultaneously breathing in and maximizing the beneficial properties of essential oils. All this said, choosing the right diffuser is important!

Ultrasonic Diffusers

“Ultrasonic diffusion combines the advantages of a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy diffuser into one by breaking a mixture of essential oils and water into millions of microparticles and dispersing them into the air.”  Young Living has many ultrasonic diffusers to choose from that vary in their design, timer settings (inc. continuous and intermittent), light settings, sound machine options, and more!  PICK YOUR FAVORITE!

Atomizing Diffuser

Young Living has one atomizing diffuser that “transforms essential oils into a vapor of millions of microparticles, dispersing the powerful, undiluted plant constituents found in Young Living essential oils into the air with no water added.” The AromaLux Atomizing Diffuser “includes an array of features and settings, including our highest vapor output, our most customizable volume and run time settings (with automatic shutoff), and a quiet motor.”  LEARN MORE

Cleaning Your Diffuser

And it is important to clean your diffuser regularly–show it some love!  Whether you have one of Young Living’s ultrasonic diffusers ((for use with the Aria™, Rainstone™, Dewdrop™, Desert Mist™, Lantern, and other diffusers with an ultrasonic plate)) or an automizing diffuser (AromaLux™ and other diffusers with an atomizer), there are simple steps to cleaning this beloved addition to your home!  READ MORE
Why Shouldn't I Buy Drug Store Essential Oils?

Not all essential oils are created equal

“Always opt for pure essential oils instead of essential oils diluted with carrier oils and other hard-to-pronounce ingredients.”
