Topically

  • Apply on the “problem area” (Bug bites, etc. Some applications might require dilution).
  • Apply on temples, behind ears, back of neck, or chest for anything
 systemic (cold, flu, depression, fever, etc.)
  • Rub oils on the feet, hands, spine, neck, temples – you will find favorite spots for each oil!
  • Make an ointment out of your favorite oils and coconut oil.  Use just like a lotion or salve.  (pain cream, sleeping ointment, antibiotic ointment, allergy cream)

Aromatically

  • Diffuse oils into the room with your Young Living
 diffuser, this is especially effective for emotional issues.
  • Smell oil straight from the bottle.
  • Cup hands over nose and inhale after a topical application.
  • Put a drop of oil into your hands, rub them together, cup over nose/mouth and breathe deeply for 2 minutes.

Internally

  • Drop a few drops of oil into a capsule and take it by mouth.
  • Always drink with a full cup of water!
  • Drop a few drops of oil into water, a smoothie, tea, juice, or
 other fluid in a glass or metal container.
  • Use various oils in cooking recipes like cinnamon, clove, lime, lemon,
 peppermint, oregano, and thyme.
