How to use Young Living Oils

Using your Essential Oils for the first time can be overwhelming and intimidating. Which oils to use for what is usually what comes to mind when we first receive our first orders. It may sound complicated, but it’s really easy and a lot of fun! Below are a few ways in which you can start using essential oils.

Apply to the Skin

Essential oils are fat soluble, which means they are immediately absorbed by the skin.

A popular way to enjoy your essential oils is to mix it with carrier oils and apply them to your skin for absorption.

Essential oils are usually applied on the wrists, temples, feet, or behind the ears.


Diffuse it

Electronic Diffusers are designed to disperse a super fine mist of essential oils. They will gently fill the air with the aroma and healing benefits of the essential oil of your choice within minutes.

Put a few drops of essential oils in your diffuser, turn it on, and circulate the oil into your room.

Depending on your diffuser, you may be required to add water. Please refer to your diffuser instructions.


Inhale it

Rub 3-4 drops into the palms of your hands, or drop them on a tissue, inhale and enjoy.

When using a new essential oil for the first time, only use one drop to make sure you don’t have a reaction or sensitivity to the oil.



Steam Inhalation

For a more relaxing experience, you can boil 2-3 cups of water, pour it into a bowl and add 2-5 drops of oil to the water.

Place your nose about 12” away from the bowl, cover your head and bowl with a towel, and slowly inhale the steam.
