Applying Essential Oils and Where to Apply Essential Oils
Hello, I’m Kenneth Gardner, and I’m here to talk about applying essential oils and where to apply essential oils, and this seems to be a big mystery to a lot of people. We’re only talking about Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils. I couldn’t guarantee the safety and effectiveness of other essential oils unless I were to do a bunch of research. You really can’t tell from the bottle. You can always apply essential oils to the bottoms of your feet. If you don’t know where to apply them or even if you don’t know the benefits you’re looking for, put them on the bottoms of your feet. Get them on your body, and they will help you in more ways than you know. You can always diffuse essential oils using a Young Living diffuser. I like being a human diffuser where I’m breathing it in and it’s also on my skin and getting right into my body that way as well. I also like to inhale from the palms of my hands or from my fingertips. You can always put a few drops of essential oil in your bath water. The Essential Oils Desk Reference (see separate video) describes all of the application methods. I will concentrate on the topical method, applying essential oils to the skin. There is also inhalation (diffusion, direct, and vapor), ingestion (capsule, rice milk, syrup), oral (gargle, tongue), and 2 retention methods. There are different methods of topical application, applying essential oils to the skin. There’s reflexology, stimulating reflex points on your feet, hands, and ears. Other methods are compress, bath salts, massage, and raindrop technique (raindrop therapy). You can apply essential oils anywhere on the skin, but not in the eyes and not dripped into the ear canal, although you can apply them on the ears. Let’s talk about dilution, diluting essential oils with the V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex. You can also use other vegetable oils like olive oil, but V-6 will be more effective because it’s specially formulated to get essential oils into your body. Why would you want to dilute essential oils? (1) To apply them to a larger area (2) If you have sensitive skin (3) For “hot” oils like cinnamon, mountain savory, oregano, thyme, ImmuPower, and Longevity. One of the places for the best absorption is under the tongue, although I wouldn’t usually recommend it. I put several drops of Thieves in my mouth a few times a day as a supplement and for oral health, and I use it after oils that don’t taste so good, like Brain Power, which works well in the mouth. You can drip an essential oil into the palm of your hand and then apply it wherever. You can also drip it onto location and rub it in. I demonstrate another method here. Besides on the bottoms of your feet and perhaps under your tongue, you can apply essential oils under your nose, on your ears, behind your ears, over the thymus gland, on the back of the neck (the base of the neck and at the hairline over the brainstem), over the seven main energy centers of the body, For specific conditions, you can apply essential oils to specific places, such as on the sinuses, nose, throat, thyroid, chest, lungs, liver, stomach, abdomen, kidneys, joints. You may get faster and better results if you apply oils to specific problem areas even though they travel through the body from wherever you apply them. At the end, you could rub your hands together and also inhale from the palms of your hands. That is how to apply essential oils and where to apply them.

    Thanks for the video! I’m new to oils and just purchased stressaway to attempt to help certain family members sleep (can’t stand the scent of lavender). Where’s the best place to apply it on the body for this purpose? It’s not working for the child who needs it most, so I’m wondering if it simply won’t work or I’m not applying it in the best way.

    How often to apply the oils

  4. Alyssa Ceravolo on April 19, 2019 at 5:59 pm

    Thank you for demonstrating the carrier oil method. So many people talk about it, but never teach us how to do it. I would like to point out one comment you made about how if the oils are burning, it’s not doing damage. I had an incident with clove causing a chemical burn to my face because it wasn’t diluted enough. It would be false to say this was exclusively burning because of toxins coming out of my skin. This was indeed a chemical burn and although my case wasn’t serious, it could certainly be for someone who isn’t experienced.

    You mentioned not to drop any into your ears. I assume that I shouldn’t drop any into the nose either? I’m thinking of a way to help with stuffy noses.

    Hello, Denver Poobah. You’re welcome! You asked my opinion of doTERRA. Please email me at kennethgardner at g mail.

  20. Oil Evangelist on April 19, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    @dalekcaanman I would suggest on the neck over the carotid arteries and at the hairline in the back, behind or on the ears, and perhaps on the forehead.
