learn about oils

First thing’s first…if you haven’t already, OPEN THE BOTTLES!

The fastest way to LEARN about oils is to USE them! The top 10 oils (that are found in both the Family and Home Essentials kits) are a great place to start.

Using your oils is SUPER EASY! You can use them aromatically by dropping them into the diffuser or smelling them right out of the bottle, or put a drop into your hand with some carrier oil and rub it right on!

Be safe and smart with these potent oils! When in doubt, always dilute with a carrier oil! The easy way to do this is to just drop some in the palm of your hand and then add a drop of EO before applying topically!

Dilution helps keep your skin from sensitization and allows the oil to penetrate effectively and safely. If you decide to pre-mix oils into a carrier (like in spray or roller bottles), check out the quick dilution guide. Some oils are HOT which means they will burn or irritate the skin if applied NEAT (undiluted). View the common carrier oils file below for a list of the oils that could cause skin sensitivity.

Check out our facebook community page for more info on carrier oils and suggested dilution ratios.

Some people also prefer the Modern Essentials book from www.aromatools.com. This is another EXCELLENT resource and is designed a little more like a medical reference book, but loaded with great information as to how to use your oils.
