WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile liquids distilled from plants-their most pure essence. The oil can be obtained from roots, seeds, shrubs, flowers, leaves and trees- bringing healing to the body. The chemistry is extremely complex and may consist of hundreds of different and unique compounds making the distillation of pure essential oils a very delicate process.
HOW DO ESSENTIAL OILS WORK?
Oils were mankind's first means of wellness and a powerful tool we still use today. They are able to reach every single cell of our body on a cellular level. Within minutes of using or breathing in an essential oil it can be found in every organ and cell of the body.
The fragrance of essential oils triggers our limbic system -the emotional center of our brain. Scents passing through this system can trigger memories, emotions, and feelings, which is why essential oils are amazing for relaxing, working through trauma, and supporting your emotions. Essential oils can have a profound physiological & psychological effects on us as well.
Essential oils can reach every single cell within your body within 20 minutes when applied topically to the skin. Essential oils work hard to eliminate toxins, regenerate dna, pass through the blood-brain barrier, help you work through emotions & trauma via the limbic system, transport nutrients to dying cells, act as powerful antioxidants, increase atmospheric oxygen, remove toxins in the air, and increase negative ions in the area which can inhibit bacterial growth.
mankind's first medicine.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS.
DIRECT APPLICATION ONTO THE SKIN IS ONE OF THE EASIEST WAYS TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS. IT IS ALSO A HIGHLY EFFECTIVE METHOD SINCE ESSENTIAL OILS CAN EASILY PASS THROUGH THE LIPID MEMBRANES OF CELL WALLS. THEY ARE ABLE TO PENETRATE CELLS AND DISPERSE THROUGHOUT THE BODY WITHIN MINUTES. THE BOTTOM OF THE FEET IS A GOOD PLACE TO APPLY OILS DIRECTLY BECAUSE MANY NERVE ENDINGS ARE FOUND THERE AND THE PORES OF THE SKIN ARE LARGE IN THAT AREA.
BEFORE YOU START, REMEMBER TO TEST A SMALL AREA OF THE SKIN FIRST. APPLY ONE OIL OR BLEND AT A TIME. THE LONGER ESSENTIAL OILS STAY IN CONTACT WITH THE SKIN, THE MORE LIKELY THEY ARE TO BE ABSORBED. TO REDUCE EVAPORATION AND ENHANCE PENETRATION, PUTTING SOCKS ON AFTER APPLYING CAN HELP!
CARRIER OILS EXTEND ESSENTIAL OILS WHEN THEY ARE APPLIED TO A LARGE AREA, AND CAN DECREASE SKIN IRRITATION AS WELL. WHEN APPLYING ESSENTIAL OILS TO CHILDREN OR YOURSELF, ALWAYS USE A CARRIER OIL. EXAMPLES OF COMMON CARRIER OILS INCLUDE COCONUT OIL, GRAPESEED OIL, VITAMIN E OIL, SWEET ALMOND OIL, & OLIVE OIL.
DIFFUSING ESSENTIAL OILS IS A PERFECT WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR HOME, WORK, OR LIVING ENVIRONMENT. DIFFUSING CAN PURIFY THE AIR AND NEUTRALIZE MILDEW, CIGARETTE SMOKE OR OTHER ODORS AS WELL AS PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FROM HARMFUL THINGS WE BREATHE IN THE AIR. AROMATIC USE CAN ALSO HELP WITH MOOD REGULATION.
TO ENJOY ESSENTIAL OILS AROMATICALLY, TRY THE FOLLOWING:
PLACE 2 DROPS INTO THE PALM OF YOUR HAND; RUB CLOCKWISE WITH THE OTHER HAND. CUP HANDS TOGETHER OVER THE NOSE AND MOUTH AND INHALE DEEPLY.
ADD SEVERAL DROPS OF AN ESSENTIAL OIL TO A BOWL OF HOT (NOT BOILING) WATER. INHALE THE VAPORS THAT RISE FROM THE BOWL. A TOWEL CAN BE PLACED OVER THE HEAD AND BOWL TO INCREASE THE INTENSITY OF THE VAPORS.
APPLY A FEW DROPS OF ESSENTIAL OIL TO A COTTON BALL, TISSUE, NATURAL-FIBER HANDKERCHIEF, OR CLAY NECKLACE AND INHALE PERIODICALLY.
DIFFUSE IN A YOUNG LIVING DIFFUSER.
YOUNG LIVING’S VITALITY LINE IS A LINE OF DIETARY OILS, ALL SAFE AND INTENDED FOR INTERNAL USE. TO INGEST ESSENTIAL OILS, TRY THE FOLLOWING:
MAKE A CAPSULE USING EMPTY VEGETABLE CAPSULES. FILL IT WITH CARRIER OIL AND SWALLOW!
TRY A DROP OR TWO (START SLOW!) IN YOUR WATER, NINGXIA RED, SMOOTHIES, COCKTAILS, & OTHER DRINKS.
USE IN YOUR COOKING IN PLACEMENT OF OR ADDITION TO HERBS, SPICES, OR CITRUS ZEST.
YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING WHY WOULD WE USE OILS FOR COOKING INSTEAD OF THE HERBS IN OUR GARDEN OR GROCERY STORE? IT ALL COMES DOWN TO FREQUENCY. A HEALTHY PERSON HAS A FREQUENCY AROUND 62-68 MHZ. AS OUR FREQUENCY DIPS DOWN, THAT IS WHEN OUR BODY STARTS TO SHOW SYMPTOMS AND ILLNESSES. DRY HERBS HAVE A FREQUENCY OF 12-23 MHZ. FRESH HERBS GO UP TO 20-27 MHZ, WHICH IS AWESOME, BUT ESSENTIAL OILS HAVE FREQUENCIES BETWEEN 52-428 MHZ!! THIS MEANS THAT EVEN THE LOWEST FREQUENCY OIL IS STILL HIGHER AND MORE BENEFICIAL TO OUR BODIES, AS FAR AS FREQUENCY GOES
