How to Use Your Essential Oils

Essential oils are very powerful and absorb effectively into the body through the skin or through inhalation.  The effect can be increased by the use of a good carrier oil such as grapeseed, almond or olive oil.  The carrier oil allows you to use less of the essential oil with the same or even increased therapeutic effects.

Methods of Use:

Direct Application: mix approximately 1 tsp of carrier oil into palm of hand with 1-5 drops of essential oil and apply directly to the skin. Feet: placing oils on feet is a fast and safe way to absorb them into the body. Diffuser: diffusing oils into the air or in our stylish aromatherapy jewelry is another beneficial way to use your essential oils.
