HOW TO APPLY ESSENTIAL OILS
There are several ways to use essential oils:
· topical application via massage or compress
· aromatic bath
· inhalation (including diffusion)
· You must dilute essential oils with a carrier oil to use them topically or in a bath.
Essential oils are very beneficial, pleasurable and safe to use as long as a few common-sense precautions are followed:
Avoid contact with the eyes or mucus membranes
Essential oils can sting when they get in the eyes or on mucus membranes. Rinse the affected area with a plain vegetable oil.
Taking essential oils internally
The International Federation of Aromatherapists strongly discourages the internal use of essential oils. They are highly concentrated substances that can damage the delicate lining of the digestive tract. Some essential oils are toxic when taken internally. Essential oils should only be ingested under the direct supervision of a professional aromatherapist.
Essential oil contraindications
People who have epilepsy or high blood pressure, pregnant women, infants and children all have special considerations in the use of essential oils. Please check the safety precautions for each oil before using it.
Diluting essential oils
Essential oils are very concentrated. They should always be diluted for use on the skin. With the exception of only a few oils, they should only be used directly on the skin under the supervision of a trained aromatherapist.
Using essential oils on sensitive skin
Some oils can be skin irritants. To check for sensitivity to an oil, put a few undiluted drops on the inside of the wrist. Cover with a bandage and check the skin in two hours.
Essential oil phototoxicity
Some oils, particularly citrus oils, accelerate skin pigmentation when used on the skin before exposure to sunlight. When using Bergamot, Orange, Lemon and Angelica Root on the skin, wait at least six hours before exposure to sunlight.
Essential oil storage
Essential oils are volatile. They can be damaged by exposure to heat, oxygen and sunlight. A good quality oil comes in a dark bottle, either brown or cobalt blue. After use, the cap should be securely fastened and the bottle stored in a cool, dry place out of the reach of children. Many essential oils come with a plastic dropper insert in the bottle, allowing you to dispense one drop at a time. This makes blending more accurate and prevents spills. When properly cared for, most essential oils have a shelf life of two to five years. Citrus oils oxidize easily so they have a much shorter shelf life - about six months. The test of freshness in an essential oil is its fragrance.

Lavender (lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of essential oils. Most commonly known for its relaxing effects, therapeutic-grade lavender has been highly regarded for the skin. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing – physically and emotionally. Carrying a bottle of lavender around with you is like having your own personal first aid kit, perfume and rejuvenator.
Native to Europe, peppermint is one of the oldest herbs used for medicinal purposes historically. Hailing from the lavender and rosemary family, peppermint is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and the oil is extracted through the process of steam distillation from the leaves and topmost flowers of the plant. Peppermint essential oil is a natural antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and analgesic (pain reliever) and is an excellent anti-parasitic. Used by cultures all over the world for its powerful medicinal properties, today attributes these qualities to menthone, menthyl esters, and most importantly to the active compound, menthol, which is found in high concentrations in peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is used widely in the manufacturing of products we use daily such as shampoo and toothpaste. Other benefits include:
Diffuse in the classroom, at work, or at home when stress levels or tension are high. Apply to the skin while showering and inhale deeply to experience its calming aroma while enjoying its purifying skin benefits.
You can also apply the oil to your hair and scalp. Distribute it evenly throughout from the hair roots to the ends. It also acts as a natural serum to tame frizzy and stray hair strands. To get rid of scalp build up: Each time you use a purifying shampoo, add a few drops of bergamot essential oil to it and apply on hair and scalp.
