Three Ways to Enjoy Essential Oils Internally – in a liquid or a vegetable capsule Rub topically on location, with or without a carrier oil Breathe through the nose and through diffusing into the air
Neat vs. Diluted Diluted means that the essential oil is mixed with a carrier oil – a fatty vegetable oil such as Almond Oil, coconut oil, olive oil, or V-6. • Nearly every Young Living oil can be used neat because it is 100% pure. This means you can apply oil to your skin straight out of the bottle.
Why Dilute? • With therapeutic essential oils less is more. • Cheaper • Works like a time release capsule • Greater surface area is affected
Diluting Cools Some essential oils are “hot.” To cool an essential oil add a fatty vegetable oil. Never water, because oil and water don’t mix.
