How to Use Essential Oils

Animals using oils

People often ask me how I use a certain essential oil. I like to quote Gary Young when I answer them. “Open the bottle!”

There are so many ways to use essential oils. My favorite method to recommend to new “oilers” is to rub them on the feet. The pours of the feet are large and the skin on the feet is tough. So it is rare for anyone to have a sensitivity to oils applied to the feet. And since all nerves in the body are connected to the feet, the benefits of the oils will be picked up and carried to the entire body within minutes. I have actually put peppermint on my feet and tasted it in my mouth within 20 seconds!

Our bodies know what to do with authentic essential oils that have not been contaminated or adulterated with man-made chemicals. They will help the body maintain homeostasis or balance. It is amazing how intelligent our bodies are in making use of therapeutic grade essential oils!

When we smell essential oils, the molecules pass directly from the sinus passages into the area of the brain called the limbic system. A chemical reaction happens there faster than we can think about it, and instantly messaged are sent throughout the glands and organs of the body to begin using these molecules to benefit the body.

Essential oils can benefit and support us physically, spiritually and emotionally. I am constantly amazed at the stories people tell me about some improvement they have experienced because of Young Living Essential Oils products. It gives me so much joy to help people and know that their lives are better because of it.

So if you have a bottle of essential oil and are not sure what to do with it, OPEN THE BOTTLE! Rub it on, smell it, ingest it if it is one that is safe to use internally. Start slowly. Always remember you can add more, but it is harder to take it away! Less is more. These oils are powerful. Often a drop or two will be all you need. Study a good reference guide. You do have one, right? If not get one.

Happy oiling! And tell me how you used your Young Living oils today!
