How to use essential oils?

Because of the potency and purity of dōTERRA Essential Oils , you will only need few drops at the time. Some Essential Oils are considered HOT so they are best applied on the skin diluted with any carrier oil. dōTERRA prefer to use Fractionated Coconut Oil because is not greasy ,odorless and it will allow the EO to stay longer and penetrate deeper.

These are the main ways to use Essential Oils :

AROMATICALLY :

Aromatic use has long been used for its ability to allow experience the powerful, uplifting, relaxing, or purifying nature of essential oils.

But how does it work?
The journey of essential oils to your brain starts as essential oil molecules (yes, tiny bits of the oil itself) travel through your nose to your olfactory epithelium where some of them are absorbed.
Next the olfactory receptors get triggered by the aroma.So once the receptors are activated they send a signal to the olfactory bulb that contains special cells. Once these cells  receive the signal ,they will transmit it to the brain.
The information get communicated to the  the Amygdala, hypothalamus, hippocampus which are part of  the limbic system.

What does the limbic system control?
The limbic system is responsible for emotion, behavior, motivation, memory, and learning.Therefore every time you smell an essential oil you will communicate directly to your feeling area of the brain.

SO HOW DO I USE THEM AROMATICALLY?

  1. Put 3-4 drops of your favorite oils in the diffuser, and starts your day with some wild orange to uplift your whole house.Use balance in the afternoon to allow everyone to feel grounded after a day at school or in the office and Lavender peace at night to promote restful sleep.
  2. Get your oils , open the lid and inhale directly from the bottle. You can do this every time you need it, everywhere you are.I always have a little pouch in my bag with different oils that I sniff trough the day.My favorite is Easy Air as it allows me to breathe better and expand especially during training.
  3. Apply 1-2 drops on hands,rub together and inhale deeply at least 5 times from cupped hands ( these will be your portable diffuser when you don’t have one handy).
  4. Apply 3-4 drops of essential oils on a diffuser jewelry like neck less or lava bracelets and sniff it up through the day.
  5. Apply a drop on the pillow or on a collar shirt to smell your favorite oil always with you night and day

TOPICALLY:

Topical application of essential oils is one of the fastest, simplest ways to experience the benefits of essential oils for the body.
When it comes to sensitive skin or to young kids you really want to dilute the essential oil before applying it topically.
The best oil to dilute is the Fractionated Coconut Oil because it has not fat, is not greasy and doesn’t smell as coconut so it makes the perfect combination when mixed with essential oils. But you can use any other carrier oil you prefer…
HOW DO I APPLY THEM ON MY BODY?
  1. Put 1-2 drops diluted with coconut oil on the bottom of the feet and massage. I like to start the day with some balance under my feet to feel more grounded.When winter is approaching one of the best oil to apply is On Guard to protect you from what’s going around outside. At night time you can use a more relaxing oil like Lavender or Vetiver to support your sleep.
  2. Apply the oils on wrist points, behind the ears, back of the neck or in the elbow grease. They will work amazingly on the emotional level as well.
  3. Aromatic Dressing is a way of applying the oils on your entire body, putting 2-3 drops of essential oils in a small bowl with about 10ml of coconut oil and start applying from the bottom of the feet working your way up in a circular motion and setting up intention for the day. You will smell divine for the rest of the day and the oils will  allow you to feel better.

I have tried and failed many many times, most of it because of poor time and sometimes because there are no lemons in the house.When I first got my kit I was extremely happy there was a bottle of Lemon essential oil in it.  I started putting a drop of Lemon in my glass of water every morning, before any food, while preparing the breakfast for the kids…the taste is juts so good and is a very fast and quick solution compare to cutting the lemon and squeeze it.
The water instantly taste better and I know that the drop of Lemon i poured into my glass is safe to ingest and it comes from a very controlled quality standard that only doTERRA has. Lemon EO comes from Italy and every Italians know that the Lemons in Sicily are the best in the whole country. Here you can watch a video where Lemon EO has been sourced.
