3 Methods To Use Essential Oils
Aromatic: The most common way to utilize essential oils is through aromatherapy, simply smelling the aroma and inhaling it in through your nasal passages and into your lungs. This is a highly effective way to reap the benefits of essential oils.
Aromatherapy can be achieved by simply smelling essential oils from the bottle, using a diffuser, making essential oil sprays and spritzing in your environment or through nasal inhaler.
Topically: The second method is by applying to skin. You can do this neat (undiluted) or by diluting your essential oils first before applying. This method is great for local relief of an aliment or for generalized use. Applying to the bottom of the feet will get the oils into your bloodstream.
An easy way to apply topically is with roller bottles. Just add 15-30 drops of your favorite oil or oil blend then fill rest of bottle with carrier oil and roll on where the oil is needed.
Internal: Taking essential oils internally by ingestion can be very effective. Not all essential oils can be ingested though. Make sure your oils are high quality and labeled for internal use.
Essential oils can be consumed in vegetable caps, putting in water or other drinks, dropping under tongue or adding into foods.
