How Do We Use Essential Oils in our Routines?
3 Ways to Use Your Young Living Essential Oils
When inhaling, it takes 22 seconds for an oil to reach the brain. The only way to reach the limbic system is through smell, which is why oils are such a great option for those needing emotional support and support for their nervous system.
Diffusing is another way we inhale oils, it purifies the air, makes your home smell good without chemicals, great for respiratory support, stubborn spouses and crazy kids! Having more than one diffuser is a plus too!
Because of their molecular structure, essential oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. Sometimes when you apply an oil to the skin, it almost seems to disappear into the body.
When applied topically, it takes 2-3 minutes for an oil to reach the bloodstream, 20 minutes to affect every cell in the body, then metabolized within 2 ½ hours.
It’s not rocket science - apply oils to the area where you want to provide support. Some favorite places are wrists, behind the ears, neck, temples, stomach or especially feet.
Dilute essential oils with Young Living’s V-6 Vegetable Oil complex (or your chosen carrier oil) in your palm. I suggest starting out diluting ALL essential oils especially for those with sensitive skin and children.
Confidently enjoy Young Living Essential oils in a glass of water or favorite drink, cooking or baking your favorite meals, in capsules and/or suppositories.
