Best Way to Start Using Essential Oils
You can start incorporating oils into your daily life in a number of ways. Here is my recommendation for you to get started with essential oils.
Start with the Basics
With so many oils available, it would be easy to get overwhelmed. You can start with a small kit that includes the most used oils. Then you can really dig in to learn about the oils and start making them part of your lifestyle.
For a new consumer of essential oils, I highly recommend the doTERRA Home Essentials kit. It includes these 10 oils for everyday use with hundreds of uses: Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Melaleuca, Oregano, Peppermint,doTERRA Breathe®, DigestZen®, doTERRA On Guard®, Deep Blue® and a Petal Diffuser.
As you learn to use the essential oils for many applications, you can add to your collection as you explore new ways to use them.
Be sure to check out my monthly specials via the menu at the top! And remember, I’m just an email or phone call away if you have questions. I can also help you choose the kit that is the best fit for you!
Personally I started with a larger kit that include more oils and some other products that include oils in the ingredients like hand soap, toothpaste and supplements. I am super happy that I got started with essential oils this way since it gave me a chance to learn about and incorporate so many natural products.
I stopped use toxic cleaning products in my home a long time ago and am always on the lookout for new ways to clean. I was happy to learn that you can with clean with essential oils!
I also make my own skincare body butter using essential oils and my skin has been happy ever since!
Essential Oils and How to Use Them
Essential oils have been used for centuries in health-care practices, beauty treatments, food preparation and emotional well-being. Here is some important information about essential oils and how to use them with these three methods. And it’s simple!
Essential oils are very simple to use aromatically. Our sense of smell can The sense of smell is a tool that can prompt powerful physiologic, mental, and emotional responses.
Quickly absorbed by smell receptors, essential oils have a powerful effect! My first experience using essential oils was aromatic via a diffuser to help me sleep at night. It worked!
Here are some ways to use essential oils aromatically:
- Use in a diffuser
- Apply oil to a cotton ball and place in the air vents of your vehicle
- Mix oils in a spray bottle with water and mist over furniture, carpet, or linens
- Add oil to a batch of laundry or to dryer sheets
- Use in household surface cleaners
This is another one of my favorite ways to use the oils. They easily penetrate the skin.
You can start with one to two drops combined with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut or sweet almond oil. The essential oils are very concentrated and the carrier oils help dilute before applying to your skin.
Areas You Can Apply Essential Oils
- Forehead and temples
- Chest and abdomen
- Arms, legs, bottom of feet
Other Ways you can use Topical Application
- Add a few drops of oil to a warm bath
- Make a hot or cold compress by soaking a towel or cloth in water, adding essential oils, and then applying to the desired area
- Add oil to a lotion or moisturizer and then apply to skin
Certain essential oils can be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions. For example, if you put cinnamon on your breakfast oatmeal or drink peppermint tea (my favorite), you are really consuming volatile aromatic essential oil compounds! I was surprised to learn this too but it makes sense.
Effective Methods of Internal Application
You can use the oils in recipes for cooking or baking to replace fresh or dried herbs and spices. Remember that essential oils are much more potent than dried or fresh herbs and spices, so start with a very small amount.
For more potent oils, it may be better to administer them by toothpicks (dip the end of a clean toothpick into the oil and then add to the food) instead of drops. You can also add essential oils to water, smoothies, milk, tea, or other drinks.
Purchase Essential Oils Wholesale
The most cost effective way to get started with essential oils is with a wholesale membership. You like to save money, don’t you? Me too!
That’s why I went for the doTERRA yearly wholesale membership. This means you can purchase the products at wholesale prices 25 percent below retail.
You also have the options to share with others and earn commissions but it’s certainly not a requirement. You can just purchase for yourself with no monthly minimums or auto-ship requirements.
