Essential oils can be used with a variety of techniques.
1. A diffuser- Oils are placed in a device with water that blows the oils directly into the air. I recommend this method.
2. You can use the oils ‘dry’ on a cotton ball and smell it when needed or keep it close by.
3. Steam- You can put the oils into a basin or bowl of steaming water. The oils attach to the steam molecules and rise. Place your head over the bowl with a towel over you and breath deeply. This method is very potent.
4. You can use the oils in a spray bottle with water.
5. You can apply the oils ‘neat’ which basically just means to apply to the skin. I always suggest using oils with a carrier oil so you avoid irritating your skin, Coconut oil is my favorite carrier but there are several others you can use. I use one to three drops of essential oil per teaspoon of carrier oil. 3 drops of essential oil is a 3% solution, 1 drop is a 1 % solution etc.. For very sensitive skin or for children I would cut it back to a .5% solution to start until you see how it works with your body. I typically tell people to start off by applying to the bottom of the feet. Here’s a helpful chart.
6. You can use essential oils in the bath. Put them in a carrier oil first.
7. You can apply the oils to the affected area with a carrier oil then apply a warm compress.
8. Or you can use them in a roller bottle or something similar.
Different oils work better with different methods so I suggest googling the ones you are interested in. I recommend using each oil with caution and I ask that you educate yourself of the possible risks of each oil. ALWAYS keep essential oils away from heat sources and out of reach from children and pets.
