3 Ways To Use Young Living Essential Oils
There are Three main ways to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine
When inhaling, it takes 22 seconds for an oil to reach the brain. The only way to reach limbic system is through smell, which is why oils are such a great option for those for those needing emotional support and support for their nervous system.
Diffusing is another way we inhale oils (point out diffuser in room), it purifies the air, makes your home smell good without chemicals, great for respiratory support, stubborn spouses and crazy kids. Having more than one diffuser is a plus too.
Because of their molecular structure, essential oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. Sometimes when you apply an oil to the skin, it almost seems to disappear into the body. When applied topically, it takes 2-3 minutes for an oil to reach the bloodstream, 20 minutes to affect every cell in the body, then metabolized within 2 ½ hours.
You can create homemade beauty and bath products such as sugar scrub, creams and bath salts using essential oils.
It’s not rocket science - you can just apply oils to the area where you want to provide support. Some favorite places are wrists, behind the ears, neck, temples, stomach or especially feet.
Using Carrier Oils
You can use a carrier oils with essential oils – it is just a ‘fatty’ oil that can be used for dilution. It makes spreading the essential oil over a larger area of the body much easier. Dilution is a great method for use with those who have sensitive skin, children and infants.
You can add essential oils to water/drinks, include them in cooking/baking, and also take them in capsules.
Be sure to use glass or stainless steel when drinking essential oils in water. Citrus oils especially can digest petrochemicals, so it’s important not to use plastic.
