How to Use Essential Oil

There are 3 methods of using essen­tial oil. Remember, when I talk about essential oil and their application techniques, I’m ALWAYS talking about therapeutic-grade essential oil like Young Living.

1. Topically

Using essential oil topically means applying it to the skin, hair, nails or teeth and gums. Applying it WITH­OUT dilution is referred to “neat”. Es­sential oils are very potent and some may irritate the skin, so it’s often suggested to dilute them with “carrier oil” such as fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, almond oil, apricot kernal oil, etc..

2. Aromatic

Aromatic use of essential oil involves inhaling the oil directly from the bottle or diffusing it into the air. Inhalation can be a powerful way to affect memory, hormones, and emotions through the olfactory system. It can also be a quick and effective way to impact the respiratory system.

3. Dietary

Dietary use is the process of consuming the essential oil. ONLY pure, therapeutic grade essential oil should be used for internal consumption. Other essential oils may be diluted or processed using harmful chemicals. With Young Living oils, you can be confident that you’re using the purest essential oil.
