How Do You Use Essential Oils?

You don’t need extensive training to know how to use essential oils effectively. With a basic understanding of safety precautions and application methods, it is easy to start using essential oils.

Get Started With Essential Oils

As you get started with essential oils keep these things in mind:

  • Determine the uses and benefits of the oil you intend to apply.
  • Follow any label and packaging instructions.
  • If you have specific concerns, consult with a healthcare professional first.

How to Apply Essential Oils

There are three ways to use essential oils:

1. Through smell. We call this “aromatic” use of essential oils. This includes any application method that helps you experience the aroma of the oil. You can use essential oils aromatically by:

  •  Diffusing in an essential oil diffuser
  • Applying a drop to your hands and inhaling
  • Wearing as a personal fragrance

2. On your skin. “Topical” application of essential oils allows the oil to absorb into the skin. Some ways to use essential oils on your skin are:

  • Massage
  • Apply to targeted areas and rub in
  • Add to lotions or moisturizers

3. Ingesting, or “internal” use of essential oils allows the oil to be transported throughout your body. Make sure the essential oil is safe for internal use first, and then try one of these methods:

  • Add to a glass of water

Essential Oil Safety

Here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when you are learning how to use essential oils:

Essential Oil Safety Guidelines

  1. Avoid applying oils to sensitive areas like the nose, ears, eyes, or broken skin. 
  2. Always read labels and package instructions before using an essential oil for the first time.
  3. Use dilution to minimize skin sensitivity.
  4. Be aware of oils with sun sensitivity warnings.
  5. Practice safe storage—keep oils out of reach of children.
  6. Always supervise young children when applying essential oils.
  7. If you have specific health concerns, talk to a healthcare professional before trying essential oils.

How to Use Essential Oils Internally

When ingested, essential oils directly enter the blood stream via the gastrointestinal tract, where they are transported throughout the rest of the body. Essential oils are readily transported to all organs of the body, including the brain.

Follow label recommendations and other professional guidelines for dosage when using essential oils internally.

Effective Methods of Internal Application

  • Add essential oils to water, smoothies, milk, tea, or other drinks
  • Use oils in recipes for cooking or baking to replace fresh or dried herbs and spices (Remember, essential oils are much more potent than dried or fresh herbs and spices, so start with a very small amount. Use a toothpick for particularly potent oils.)
