Essential Oil Essentials

Diffusion A great way to impact an entire room or a group of people, diffusing makes use of a device called a diffuser to spread the aromatic molecules of essential oils throughout the air. There are two main types of diffusers: • Atomizing Admits essential oils into the air in very tiny particles, small enough for the lungs and body to absorb them rapidly and experience the maximum health benefits. • Ultra-Sonic / Vapor Less concentrated than atomized oils, the mist of water and essential oil mixed in an ultra-sonic diffuser and is a great choice for children under the age of 2. It’s also great for spreading an inexpensive aroma throughout your home.

Topical Topical use of essential oils is effective and popular. Applying essential oils where you need them for localized effect is a time-tested treatment used for thousands of years to promote health and vitality anywhere on the body. Example: • Apply directly to a sore muscle after a hard workout. • Apply to the face for complexion and beauty regimens. • Apply o the forehead, neck, and temples for headache or tension. • Apply to the base of skull for mood and emotional support. • Apply to the abdomen for digestive support and comfort. • Apply to the chest to help with breathing. • Apply to the bottoms of the feet for whole body benefits.* *The entire body and its organs have correlations to the feet.

Internal Essential oils are safe and effective when used properly as a dietary supplement or a food additive. Because essential oils are so potent, only very small amounts over short durations of time are recommended when using as a supplement. Example: • 1 drop of marjoram essential oil will flavor an entire pot of spaghetti sauce. • A tea made with Spice of Life soothes sore throats and relieves cold symptoms. • A drop of citrus oil can help curb cravings for sugar.
