Essential How?!



HOW DO YOU USE AN ESSENTIAL OIL? 
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHICH OIL CAN BE USED WHICH WAY?

We know you’re already wondering those things in your head. Never fear, my friends, Young Living did something really brilliant when they put their amazing oil into little bottles – they PUT LABELS ON THEM. Can you imagine? All you have to do is read the label on the bottle. The label will tell you which of the three ways the oil can be used.








AROMATIC
This can either be through a diffuser (every home NEEDS at least one diffuser) or by just straight up opening the bottle and smelling it. Pretty easy, right? You’re skeptical that it will work? TRY IT. I dare you. Aromatic = breathe it in. A diffuser is a little gadget that you put water and essential oils in to make your house smell amazing without toxic chemicals and scary things like formaldehyde. Once you diffuse, you never quit and that's a fact.

Simply put, you smell them. The smell of coffee brewing in the morning has this weird ability to entice us out of bed. Do you wonder why? The human nose has roughly 450 different types of olfactory receptors and those receptors trigger a reaction in your brain.





INTERNAL
Did you know you can take essential oils in a capsule? Young Living's Vitality line of essential oils can be ingested and when used properly, are EXTREMELY powerful. Some oils can be ingested and when used properly are extremely powerful. Internal = in your mouth or in a capsule.



TOPICAL
Did you know your skin is your largest organ in your body? Amazing, right? Topical application is the equivalent of putting a drop of oil in your hand, diluting it and putting it on your skin. Using oils topically is the equivalent of putting a drop of oil in your hand, mixing it with a carrier oil (fancy word for coconut oil or olive oil or any fatty substance oil in your pantry… if you can cook with it, you can use it to dilute essential oils) and putting it on your skin. Topical = on your skin. They are absorbed rapidly by the skin because of their molecular structure and they take mere seconds to hit the bloodstream when applied topically.
