How to Use Essential Oils

There are multiple ways how to use essential oils, and the approach you choose will depend on which oil you are using and your intended goal. Some of the most popular approaches involve diluting and diffusing oils. One of the easiest uses for essential oils involves simply breathing them in so their beneficial properties go straight for your nasal olfactory passages.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are fragrant oils derived from plants. They can come from the bark, roots, stems, flowers or seeds of a plant. They are most often obtained from the plant through a process of distillation. They are highly concentrated compounds that come directly from plants and can bear the healing or therapeutic benefits of that plant.

What Is a Carrier Oil?

A carrier oil is an oil in which the essential oil can be diluted. By diluting your essential oil in a carrier oil, it may then easily be applied to the skin. Carrier oils will reduce skin sensitivity and also increase absorption through skin tissue.
