Essential oils are precious gifts from Mother Nature that have powerful effects on the human body. There are a number of health benefits provided by essential oils including strengthening the immune system, preventing infections and sickness, refreshing the mind, calming nerves, and much more.
Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways and knowing how to use them is important. Check out the most effective ways of using Purely Crafted essential oils and enjoy their benefits with our simply ‘how-to’ guide below.
One of the most effective ways to experience the benefits of essential oils is to diffuse the oil into the surrounding area. The benefit to this method is that the process of inhalation is highly effective and fast acting as well as refreshing and soothing. Moreover, it is the safest way of utilizing essential oils with both children and adults.
It is commonly recommended that when diffusing use approximately 10-20 drops of essential oil per 100mL of water. There are several different ways available for diffusing essential oils, such as:
Water diffuser ideal for home or office
If you happen to be away from your diffuser, some other simple ways to use Purely Crafted Essential Oils include:
Dilute with water in a spray bottle and spray around your home and office
Add to your laundry
Another preferred method of using essential oils is topical application. In order to prevent skin irritation, it is imperative that you always dilute an essential oil with a carrier oil prior to topical application. Since the oil is applied directly on the skin, it is absorbed and enters the bloodstream right away. Carrier oils can consist of the following:
Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO)
A common and effective way of topical application is through massage, especially foot massage or reflexology. Major pressure points exist in the palm of your foot, which makes absorption of essential oils faster and more efficient. Other beneficial areas of the body include chest, neck, temples, forehead, arms, legs, and abdomen.
In addition to the diffused and topical health benefits of essential oils, many of these oils also possess cleaning properties that can help you cleanse your home naturally. Using five drops of Purely Crafted Immunity Blend, for example, mixed into a few ounces of water to create an all-purpose cleaner for naturally disinfecting surfaces like counter and tabletops.
