Essential Oil Uses

Essential oils are commonly used 1 of 3 ways:
  • aromatically
  • topically
  • internally
 
Young Living classifies each essential oil it sells as either a dietary supplement or a topical/aromatic. Dietary supplements should only be ingested according to the directions contained in the Young Living labeling. Likewise, Young Living topical/aromatics should only be diffused or applied externally according to the Young Living labeling instructions.

 
 



 

Aromatically

Use essential oils aromatically to uplift the spirit.


  • Rub 2–3 drops of essential oil between your palms and inhale.
  • 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 our diffusers.
 

Note: Always consult individual product labels for usage directions.

 

 



 

Topically

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. Citrus-based oils and blends may cause temporary photosensitivity.
