Oils Application Instructions
Essential oils are the life-giving resin found in all
plant life that delivers the nutrients that produce
strong and healthy plants very similar to the
function of our blood. Essential oils may enhance
oxygen uptake, absorption and utilization. Essential
oils possess valuable substances which produced many
benefits for the body, mind and spirit. Pure oils are
very concentrated, and a few drops can product

properly determine your body's response.
natural products, only your body knows how it
is going to respond. Essential oils are soluble with
the lipids in the skin and in most cases easily
penetrate it and are absorbed into the bloodstream.
They may be worn like perfume or cologne and can be
applied full-strength or diluted using the Mixing Oil. As a rule,
since essential oils are one of nature's most
concentrated potent extracts, dilution is strongly
recommended for those who are first time users,
have sensitive or fair skin, are applying them to
sensitive areas of the body, are trying a new
essential oil product or applying on children. When
using multiple oils, allow enough time between
applications to gauge the body's reaction before
applying another oil.

or less dilution might be desirable, depending on
skin sensitivity, type of oil used, and the degree of
effect desired. Take a careful, measured approach
when using any essential oil and adjust both the
quantity of oil used and the amount of dilution in
accordance with the body's response. CAUTION: If the
skin becomes irritated of if oil gets into the eyes,
immediately flush with Mixing Oil or water.
have reported that when applying too many different
oils or too much of one oil, the body may be
subjected to a cleansing response which can cause
headaches, rashes, nausea, burning, diarrhea, etc.
Should this occur, simply reduce the amount of oil
used and the number of times applied and drink plenty
of purified water. Ask your health practitioner to
monitor any detoxification. You may even want to
consider an internal cleansing
continuing to use the oils.
If you have used liberal amounts of cosmetics,
shampoos, perms, hair coloring, hair sprays,
deodorants; or products containing chemicals,
petrochemicals and many synthetic ingredients (watch
out for sodium lauryl sulfate), you may have an
unpleasant cleansing experience. When using pure
essential oils, some people experience the release of
stored toxins through the skin, especially on the
face and neck area. For this reason, you should
always start with 1-2 drops of oil diluted with 1/2
teaspoon Mixing Oil. Rarely is
there a problem, but it is best to be cautious until
you see how your body responds.
Applying 4-6 drops of oil to the bottom of each foot
is a popular way to begin. Oils may be rubbed on the
VitaFlex points of the foot - a technique explained
in Aromatherapy, the Essential Beginning by D.
Gary Young. All oils can be applied to the feet.
However, because so many people have chemical
sensitivity, it is always best to dilute the first
Location: After applying the oils to the bottoms
of the feet, you may want to go to a specific
location. Just add a few drops (1-5) of oil diluted
with 1/2 - 1 tsp. Mixing Oil and rub over the area.
If you are using the oils for the first time, wait at
least 15-30 minutes before using a second oil,
allowing the body time to respond. If you are
accustomed to the oils, use them (undiluted) at your
If using more than one oil, simply apply each oil
separately, allowing enough time between each
application to gauge the body's response.
Rub 1-3 drops over location (diluted or undiluted
depending on the oil) and cover with a hot, wet
towel. Place a dry towel over the wet towel and leave
for 10-60 minutes. As the oil penetrates, you may
have a warm or slightly burning sensation,. If any
skin irritation becomes evident, rub Mixing Oil over the
area. The burning should subside in several minutes.
Discoloration of the cloth might appear due to the
body's excretion of toxins.
A few drops (5-10) of an essential oil may also be
added to any massage oil base as well as to the Young
Living massage oils.
Essential oils in a warm bath are a delightful treat.
When adding essential oils to bath water, use the Bath Gel
Base as a
diffuser is one of the simplest and most effective
methods of dispersing essential oils into the air for
inhalation. The Young Living diffuser consists of an
oil well, nebulizer (glass tube) and air pump,
designed to disperse the oils in a micro-fine mist
into the air. Research shows that diffusing may help
reduce bacteria, fungus, mold, and unpleasant odors.
It not only freshens the air with natural fragrance
but also helps you relax and relieve tension creating
an atmosphere of peace and harmony. Put enough drops
(30-40) into the diffuser well to send the mist up
the nebulizer and into the air.
Put several drops of an essential oil into the palms
of the hands and with hands cupped, breathe deeply
for greater inhalation.
Many of the oils are excellent as food flavoring and
as a dietary supplement. Because they are so
concentrated, usually 1-2 drops of oil will be
sufficient. Oils should be added after cooking to
conserve all their benefits. Oils that are certified
as safe and edible in the 1996 edition of the Foods
Chemical Codes (FCC) (National Academy of Sciences)
should be used.
A few drops of oil may be added to the dishwater or
washing machine to help promote greater hygiene. Some
favorite oils are Melrose, lemon, peppermint,
Essential Oils With Water. Essential oils are not
water soluble. If they burn a little or you get them
in your eyes by accident, always dilute with Mixing Oil or any pure
vegetable oil. Do not add water as water
drives the oils in deeper, creating more skin
irritation. Call your health care practitioner
immediately. Those who wear contacts should take
extra precaution as oils with high phenol content,
such as cinnamon, oregano, thyme, Thieves, clove,
Immupower, lemongrass, bergamot, etc., may cause
sticking problems with contacts against the eye
tissue or damage the surface of the contacts,
rendering them useless.

approved essential oils for internal use. Topical
application has equal or greater benefit as the oils
are soluble with the lipids in the skin and are

Babies And Children, always dilute 1-2 drops with
1/2 - 1 tsp. Mixing Oil or any

or any other oil soluble liquid to dilute the oil and
call your local poison control center or seek
immediate emergency medical attention. A few drops of
a pure essential oil are not likely to be

to follow this procedure.

Esspro 7, consult with your health practitioner.
