Roll a drop of oil onto your hand and smell it. Those tiny molecules are entering your nose and being absorbed by your blood stream! This method of inhaling is a great one you can use quickly and easily with any aromatic oil. You can also place drops of oil in your diffuser and the cool vapors with move into the air so that you breathe them in as you move about your home or office.
Oils are great to rub directly onto your skin. A good place to start is the bottom of your feet. This is a non-sensitive area and it should be your go-to place for applying oils to babies! Depending on the need, you can apply oils neat (undiluted) or diluted with coconut, olive, or Young Living’s V-6 oil straight to the location that you’re needing it for. When you are applying to babies or children, always dilute with a carrier oil.
By ingesting oils, you are getting the most benefit of every drop! You can place drops under the tongue, swab the oil on the inside of your cheek, or place drops into a vegetable capsule to swallow. Under the tongue is our go to method for adults because of how quickly the oils can be absorbed into your body through your mouth. We also like to add oils into our glass water bottle to encourage water consumption throughout the day. Be sure to check the specific oil is for internal use first! Young Living makes is super easy to know if it’s safe to ingest by simply checking if the oil is wearing the “vitality” label.
