What are essential oils?
THREE WAYS TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS:
The solid labels have aromatic and topical directions on them.
1. Topically – Apply on your skin. Dilute with a carrier oil like coconut oil or grapeseed oil. They are quickly absorbed and effective.
2. Aromatically – Use in the diffuser or by inhaling from diffuser jewelry or just put some on your hands.
3. Internally -Young Living oils are safe to ingest. The labels that are white are from their vitality line and have dietary instructions on them.
* NOTE: Oils in the regular bottles are the same as the vitality bottles. For Example: Peppermint oil from the regular line and Peppermint oil from the vitality line have different labels (per FDA rules) but are the SAME OIL.
First things first…DO NOT BE AFRAID OF YOUR OILS! They are amazing and made of plant juice from our earth. Young Living uses nothing but the plant juice. A few safety things to know just so you can keep them in your back pocket…
Dilute your oils. The back of each bottle explains how to use the oil and how to dilute it. Dilute them more for kids (again, don’t worry, we will show you the way and give you all the recipes so you feel comfortable).
Do not put them in your eyes or ears. If you do, use carrier oil, NOT water to relieve it. Water accentuates oils. Carrier oil and wipe, carrier oil and wipe. 🙂
Use glass instead of plastic when DIYing or ingesting oils.
