How To Use The Oils
Topically – On Your Skin Simply add a drop to your wrist, back of your neck, or the bottoms of your feet. You can also drop essential oils directly to the area of concern for specific ailments such as muscle aches, head tension, or tummy aches. Dilute essential oils with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil to minimize skin sensitivity. It’s always best to sample a small drop on your wrist before applying all over! Test it out for your own skin sensitivity before heavy use.
Aromatically – In The Air Aromatherapy has been around forever, and diffusing essential oils is one of the simplest ways to enjoy the healing benefits. You can add some drops of essential oil to your shower and inhale, take a whiff directly from the bottle, or add a few drops to a diffuser or to your diffuser jewelry. They even have cute car diffusers to help keep your car feeling like a mini spa while you’re commuting to work!
Internally – Eat Them You can cook with the oils, add them to your favorite drink, or even drop them in a veggie capsule to swallow. Internal use of essential oils can support your immune system and function, aid in the digestive process, and obtain antioxidants to prevent cell damage. There are endless benefits by adding these drops to your daily life!
