How To Use Essential Oils

What is are essential oils? Essential oils are highly concentrated natural extracts from the leaves, flowers, and stems of plants. The most common way to use essential oils is to inhale them, both for their amazing scent and their therapeutic properties. But they can also be used in diffusers and humidifiers, as well as diluted with a carrier oil and applied to the skin. (via HealthLine) Some research shows that they can be helpful, if you know how to use them the right way. Always check the label and ask your doctor if you’re not sure if they’re safe for you to use.

The best part about owning essential oils is that they benefit you no matter how they're applied. Now that our Essential Oils Collection have launched, let's take a look at the best uses, scroll down for popular and easy DIY tips.

Invigorating or relaxing fragrance at home or work

Essential oils are most commonly used in oil diffusers or oil warmers so that the benefits are absorbed through inhalation. To get started, make sure you have an oil diffuser that uses water. Now, place the desired amount of water along with a few drops of essential oil. Power your diffuser on and enjoy the wonderful aroma. If you do not have an oil diffuser that uses water, then apply the essential oil directly to our Wax Melter / Candle Warmer bowl using little to no water as desired.

Note: The Travel, Home, and Smart Professional Scent Machines are intended for use with our Fragrance Oils and not our Essential Oils because they are too thick and will clog the tubing.

Essential oils on-the-go

Taking a small, pocket-sized atomizer/sprayer with you filled with your favorite aroma can turn your day around in an instant. Remember that fragrance from pure and natural sources (like all our products, Fragrance Oil and Essential Oil alike) will provide aromachological benefits at the very least, either calming or stimulating your mood.

To make your own, you only need three things: a refillable miniature atomizer (6ml to 10ml will be most compact), a bottle of Aroma Retail Essential Oil, and water. Put 1 to 3 drops of essential oil in the atomizer, then add water to the top. It's as easy as that. Less oil means less scent while more oil means a slicker texture. Keep this in mind based on what you're spraying onto and around, this personal aroma is meant to be an ambient scent. Should you wish for your clothing and beddings to smell wonderful, see our Linen Spray air freshener.

Similar to hanging eucalyptus in the shower and the hot steam activating the oils for a more relaxing wash, you can add essential oils to your daily hygiene. Put a few drops in with your container of shampoo, conditioner, or body wash for an enhanced cleaning and fresh feel for the rest of the day. When running a bath, add several drops to the water and immerse yourself in tranquility.
