How to Apply Essential Oils For Adults




Topical Applications

  1. Direct Application. Apply the oils directly on the area of concern using one to six drops of oil. More oil is not necessarily better since a large amount of oil can trigger a detoxification of the surrounding tissue and blood. Such a quick detoxification can be somewhat uncomfortable. To achieve the desired results, one to three drops of oil is usually adequate. A few guidelines for direct application of the oils are as follows:
    • The feet are the second fastest area of the body to absorb oils because of the large pores. Other quick absorbing areas include behind the ears and on the wrists. (YOU WILL APPLY YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS TO THE BOTTOMS OF YOUR FEET UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED BY CHALYCE)
    • To experience a feeling of peace, relaxation, or energy, three to six drops per foot are adequate.
    • When massaging a large area of the body, always dilute the oils by 15 to 30% with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, PUT NEVER CANOLA OIL OR VEGETABLE SHORTENING.
    • When applying oils to infants and small children, dilute with  CARRIER OIL . You may try one to three drops of an essential oil to one tablespoon (Tbs.) of V-6 Mixing Oil for infants you may try one drop of an essential oil to one teaspoon (tsp.) of a CARRIER OIL for children from two to five years old.
    • Do not mix oil blends. Commercially available blends have been specially formulated by someone who understands the chemical constituents of each oil and which oils blend well. The chemical properties of the oils can be altered when mixed improperly, resulting in some undesirable reactions. (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GASTRO BLEND, KATE'S HAPPY TUMMY, NAUSEA BLEND AND THE DIGESTIVE BLENDS THESE CAN BE LAYERED)
    • Layering individual oils is preferred over mixing your own blends. Layering refers to the process of applying one oil, rubbing it in, and then applying another oil. there is no need to wait more than a couple of seconds between each oil as absorption occurs quite rapidly. If you desire you may dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil on top of the essential oil.  The layering technique is not only useful in physical healing, but also when doing emotional clearing. (THIS IS REFERRING TO THE FEET ONLY)
    • The FDA has approved some essential oils for internal use and given them the designation of GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe for internal consumption). Oils without this designation should never be used internally.
