This is a simple application method that can help anyone experience the potent,
uplifting, relaxing or purifying aroma of essential oils.

Not only is using them aromatically extremely convenient and simple, it also offers
immediate benefits. Using essential oils aromatically is an easy way to experience their power with little skill or knowledge, which is why aromatic continues to be a popular application method in the essential oil world today.

Our homes are more polluted than the air outside. One way to reduce the pollution
inside your home is to scent your home naturally while simultaneously cleansing the air.

One of my favorite ways to do this is with a diffuser.
I highly recommend diffusing essential oils on a daily basis in order to cleanse the air,
combat toxins, and eliminate odors in your home as well as providing support for your
body’s systems. An essential oils diffuser is a device created especially to disperse fine oil particles into the air.
Diffusers disperse essential oils as a fine vapor throughout the air so they can be
absorbed gently into the body through the respiratory system. The aroma can prompt
the nervous system to transmit signals to the limbic system in the brain – the same part of the brain that houses emotion and memory. The brain may respond by initiating
various physiological functions, such as a release of hormones or a positive boost in

This is a popular and time tested myself. It is also the fastest and simplest way to
experience the benefits of essential oils.

Topical application is unique because it allows you to target specific areas of the body to achieve a desired effect. In addition to targeted benefits, many forms of topical application can provide overall support to the entire body.

Topical application is my very favorite way to use, love and apply essential oils.
Topical application allows you to apply to an area that is giving you difficulty.
Because essential oils hold powerful cleansing and purifying properties, they have long
been used to soothe, maintain, and improve the skin.

Many essential oils contain chemical components that are useful for naturally cleansing and purifying—making them useful for maintaining healthy looking skin.
Essential oils are useful for reducing the appearance of skin imperfections, soothing
irritated skin, cleansing oily skin, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, promoting a healthy
complexion, reducing the appearance of blemishes, and more.
Unlike many skincare products, essential oils provide a pure, natural, and safe way to
care for the skin. While the natural chemical components found in essential oils are
helpful for the skin, essential oils don’t include the toxins or fillers that are often found in commercial cleansers, toners, and lotions.


Along with major benefits for the skin, the chemical components in essential oils make
them useful for the entire body. Some essential oils hold soothing or calming properties that make them useful for relaxing the body. Other essential oils are known for their warming or cooling properties that can be helpful for calming the body or relieving tension.

Some essential oils can even promote healthy breathing when applied to the chest and neck area, while other essential oils are recognized for their ability to soothe tired muscles and joints.

As mentioned, one of the advantages of using essential oils topically is the ability to
target a specific area on the body. Topical application allows for specific, targeted use,
which allows the user to select a specific oil based on its known benefits, and apply it to a precise area in order to achieve a desired effect.


• Face (useful for helping with complexion and beautifying the skin)

• Forehead, neck, and temples (a target area for dealing with feelings of tension)

• Base of the skull (an external option for emotional and mood support)

• Abdomen (to apply over major digestive organs)

• Chest (a good area to apply for feelings of clear breathing)

• The soles of the feet (to limit sensitivity, soothe the feet, or for massage.
  Massaging the feet can stimulate nerve endings and generate whole-body benefits.

• Injured, broken, or damaged skin

Some essential oils can be used internally to promote healthy cell function, support
gastrointestinal health or maintain healthy immune function. While other essential oils
may offer cleansing benefits.

When used properly, essential oils can hold a wide array of wellness benefits that can
come from internal use.

Using essential oils internally is a very personal decision and you must do your
own research and decide whether this is an application that is right for you.

In addition to substantial health benefits, internal use also provides a way to add safe,
natural, potent flavors to food and beverages. Not only will the addition of essential oils to entrées, drinks, snacks, and baked goods provide a simple way to experience the health benefits of essential oils, it will also add a potent, unique flavor to anything edible.
Is it safe to use essential oils internally?
If you have never used essential oils internally before, it might seem strange to
consume something so powerful and potent. However, essential oils come from plants,
fruits, and compounds found in nature, and therefore present a safe way to receive
internal benefits. You are most likely already incorporating essential oils into your daily diet, as many of the foods we eat contain a small amount of essential oil.

Because our bodies are designed to metabolize and process natural compounds like plants and fruit, we are already equipped to metabolize essential oils. Essential oils are merely high concentrations of natural compounds—the part that gives plants their taste and smell.

While some essential oils are never appropriate for internal consumption, there are
plenty of oils that can be safely taken internally and processed by the body—much like
other substances found in nature. So yes, when used correctly, doTERRA essential oils
are safe for internal use.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I only recommend that you take doTERRA Essential Oils
internally as they are the only essential oil company to date (January 2021) that
shows their testing reports to confirm their oils are 100% pure. You never ever
want to ingest an oil that isn’t pure.
