WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties.
Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Young Living uses the Seed to Seal process to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals that can be diffused, inhaled, applied topically, incorporated into massage or taken internally to:
Inspire a positive emotional state
Enhance your physical wellness
Purify your home
Refine your skin
Create deep spiritual awareness
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS
Use essential oils aromatically to uplift the spirit.
Rub 2–3 drops of essential oil between your palms and inhale deeply.
Add a few drops of essential oil to a bowl of hot water. Cover your head and bowl with a towel. Breathe deeply and slowly.
Use your favorite essential oils in your diffuser.
Many essential oils are safe and beneficial to use directly on the skin.
Place 2–3 drops of essential oil directly on the desired area and massage in. Repeat as desired. Always follow the label’s dilution instructions. Caution: Essential oils are very potent and may be irritating to the skin. If irritation occurs, apply Young Living’s V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex or any pure vegetable oil to the area to dilute.
When taking essential oils internally, try these tips:
Place several drops of oil into a vegetarian gel capsule and swallow with water.
Add 1–2 drops of essential oil to a glass of water, NingXia Red®, juice, yogurt, your sweetener of choice, or plant-based milk and swallow.
Add 1–2 drops of oil (to taste) to meals when cooking.
Some essential oils require dilution. See label for use.
