INHALATION

Inhalation of essential oils is rapid and deeply affects the physical and emotional bodies. The most effective methods of inhalation are:


SIMPLE INHALATION

The easiest method of inhalation is to open a bottle, keeping it about 6-8 inches under your nose and wafting the aroma up towards your nose with your other hand. Be sure not to touch or breath on the oriface or inside of cap as this will contaminate the contents and greatly reduce the life-force of the oil(s).

Another easy method is to simply place a drop of undiluted oil into your hand (use only therapeutic-grade oils and only oils that are mild: see Cautions). Place a drop into your non-dominant hand, stir the oil clockwise with the fore and middle fingers of your dominant hand to potentize the oil with your body’s frequencies. Then lightly rub hands together to disperse oil evenly, and finally, cup your hands over your nose taking a small breath of the oil and wait a minute to see how you respond. If you feel as if you can take in more, take three deep breaths of the oil into your body. And remember, when you apply oils to yourself or others with your hands, you can take in the oils too by cupping your hands over your nose and inhaling. Try Sage or Bergamot for depression, Orange or Peace and Calming for stress relief and relaxation, Eucalyptus, Peppermint or My-Grain for migraine headaches.


DIFFUSION

Diffusion introduces essential oils into the air for inhalation. There a variety of diffusors ranging from simple evaporation devices, vaporizers, humidifiers to glass nebulizers which atomize oil into microscopic particles. The evaporation method is best when no heat is applied to the oil. Lamp rings, aroma lamps heated with tea lights and other devices that rely upon heat for diffusion are the simplest way to diffuse essential oils, but heat alters the chemical make-up of the oil, destroying the life-force of the plant's essential constituents and thereby it's therapeutic effect. They are fine for the simple enjoyment of the fragrance, but are not the best method for therapeutic applications. The best way to diffuse essential oils is with a professional glass nebulizer.

Glass Nebulizers properly ionize and microscopically size the essential oil molecules to ensure suspension of the droplets in the air for long periods of time producing maximum therapeutic benefit. A cold air diffuser uses room-temperature air to blow the oil up against a glass nebulizer. This breaks the oils up into a micro-fine mist that is then dispersed into the air covering hundreds of square feet in seconds. The oils, with their negative ions and oxygenating molecules, will reamin suspended for several hours. Diffuse oils for only 15-20 minutes at a time, wait awhile and diffuse again for 15-20 minutes.

Diffusion with a glass nebulizer is especially recommended for any situation where the lungs are involved, such as colds, flu, and respiratory conditions, as well as to affect bacteria, viruses, pollution, orders, etc. Several excellent models are available from Aroma Therapeutix, ranging from room size to professional size. There are many types of diffusers, but AromaTherapeutix models are the best I've found as they are easy to clean and require only about 10-12 drops of essential oils. Aroma Therpeautix has a timer that turns the diffuser off and on for properly timed treatments. They also have the Deluxe Model which allows continuous or intermittent operation as well as a variable speed pump allowing you to control how much oil is dispersed depending on the size of the room. Call Aroma Therapeutix at 1-800-308-6284 for a catalog.

Diffuse or put in a humidifier or vaporizer Eucalyptus, Raven or RC for respiratory conditions. For colds and flu, diffuse Immupower or Thieves. Use Purification for killing orders and their bacteria, molds and fungus. Purification also neutralizes mildew, cigarette smoke and other noxious odors, and it repels bugs, insects and mice. Essential oils like peppermint, lemon and frankincense are wonderful to add to humidifier or vaporizers to oxygenate the air. ( For HUMIDIFIERS or VAPORIZERS, please follow appliance instructions for adding essential oils.)


MISTS

Another fun and inexpensive way to diffuse the oils into the air is by filling a 1 oz. spray bottle with purified or distilled water, in which you have added 10-15 drops of essential oil. Since oil does not mix with water, shake the bottle vigorously before misting the contents. Or first mix essential oils in a bit of vodka before adding water to spray bottle then shake well. Spray up over the body and let the mist fall all around you. Spray bottles of water with a drop or two of Peppermint, Lemon, Orange or Spearmint are refreshing sprayed in the mouth. Mister waters last from 1-2 weeks, so make small batches at a time. I prefer glass mister bottles over plastic as there is no reaction with glass. I also prefer clear glass misters rather than colored bottles so that the color energy does not distort the life-force of the oils. Clear glass does not protect the oils from sunlight, so once again, make small batches and keep the misters in a cool, dark location. For longer storage, use amber glass bottles and keep refrigerated. Though the blue and green bottles are lovely, they do not protect the oils from light. I also recommend using distilled water that has been energized with crystal energy as the base for your mister waters.

Specifically, I recommend using Golden 'C' water for mister waters. This is water in which the crystal energy of the Golden “C” crystal has been transmitted. This crystal has the special elemental structure of 35% lithium, 61% beryllium and 4% gallium. There are no more of the original 14,000 crystals from the mine near San Diego, CA available for sale, so we now make this water in concentrate form for others. Just add 1-3 drops per 8 oz. of distilled or other purified water and the water will be charged with the crystalline structure of the Golden “C” crystal. There are many uses for this water aside from the addition of essential oils.


OTHER METHODS OF INHALATION

Another wonderful way to disperse essential oils is to put 1-2 drops on a handkerchief, tissue or cotton ball. Most oil’s aromas evaporate from fabric or a cotton ball in a day or two.

Place tissue or cotton ball inside your pillowcase at night. As you sleep the delicate aromas will drift in the air around your head. I find this particularly lovely as while you are in the beta and theta states of sleep, the oils can more easily make contact with your system. While sleeping, you are more receptive to the frequencies of the oils. I even have a special little pillow just for applying essential oils. What a beautiful way to experience the rich aromas of essential oils! Note: most oils stain, particularly those such as blue tansy and blue chamomile, so expect your little pillow to wear these stains with pride! When changing to another oil, simply apply to a different spot on the pillow.

You can also put essential oils on tissue, cotton balls or dampened cloth, and place it in front of your home's heating/cooling vents.

Diffuse oils in your car for a lovely change of pace while driving. Rosemary and Peppermint will refresh and focus the mind. Use Orange, Tangerine, Mandarin or Grapefruit to cleanse the air. A simple method to diffuse essential oils in your car is to take a piece of heavy paper (preferably unbleached natural paper) and poke a hole through it near the top. Tie a piece of cotton string through it and attach to your rear-view window. Place a drop or two on the paper and enjoy! Unglazed ceramics also absorb and diffuse essential oils very well. Many are now available for car use. You can also put a couple of drops on a cotton ball or tissue and stuff into your vents of the car.


DIRECT APPLICATION

Just as inhalation through the olfactory system creates a variety of specialized responses in the body, direct application introduces essential oils to the body by absorbtion through the skin.

Methods of direct application include:


Pulse Points and Perfumes

Pulse points
can be found where a major artery runs close to the surface of the skin. Customarily, perfume is dabbed on the wrist and neck pulse points for quick dispersion of the aroma. Many therapeutic-grade essential oils applied “neat” (undiluted) to pulse points, create a lovely perfume. You may use either a single oil, a masterfully created Young Living Essential Oil blend, or a unique blend of your own. Suggestions of single oils are Lavender for a light floral scent, Sandalwood, a known aphrodisiac, or Patchouly as a musk. Many Young Living Essential Oil blends make extraordinary perfumes. Sensation, a blend of primarily Ylang-Ylang and Rose, arouses and uplifts. Wear Citrus Fresh as a light daytime perfume. Sacred Mountain, an earthy blend of Spruce, Pine, Fir and Cedarwood, conjures up a high mountain forest after a cool rain. A complex blend of rare essential oils, White Angelica lifts one to a higher spiritual plane.

Reflex Zones, Auricular Therapy and Vita Flex Therapy

Reflex Zones
are areas on the skin that map to particular parts of the physical body and emotions. Detailed zones of emotions and the physical body are mapped on the hands, feet, ears and head. Reflexology and Vita Flex Therapy address the feet and Auricular Therapy concentrates on the ears. For example, the middle of the bottom of the big toe connects to the pituitary gland. Sandalwood and Frankincense and Myrrh have been shown to increase oxygenation to not only the pituitary and pineal glands, but to other areas of the body. Valor is recommended on the feet to balance the electrical systems of the body and is always applied before any emotional blends. There are several zones on the body relating to emotions. The zone of fear responds favorably to the single oils of Bergamot and Ylang Ylang and the Young Living Essential Oil blends of Hope and White Angelica. Hope, Joy or Bergamot soothe when applied to the grief zone. Reflex zones offer wonderful possibilities for non-invasive contact with the emotional and physical systems of the body.

Acupuncture Points and Meridians

Acupuncture points and merdians respond beautifully to therapeutic-grade. Use Rosemary, Peppermint or Young Living's Clarity on Spleen 2 or 3 on the big toe to clear the mind and prepare for mental activities. Release on any meridian will help clear its corresponding organ. To nourish the heart, use Joy on Heart 7 or the entire heart meridian. Fir and the blends of Raven and RC are beneficial for respiratory conditions when applied to the Lung meridian. On the bladder meridian Release is useful for the final clearing of both the physical and emotional bodies.

Chakras

Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy which both take in and emit life-force energy. There are 8 main chakras down the centerline of the body from the top of the head to the bottom of the torso. When all chakras are spinning evenly and in concert with one another, the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual systems of the body are in balance. Therapeutic-grade emotional blends are excellent for balancing and blending the chakras. Harmony and Sandalwood open the chakras. The solar plexus responds beautifully to Juniper, the heart to Rose or the blend of Joy, the brow or 3rd eye chakra to Awaken and Dream Catcher and the crown to Sacred Mountain and 3 Wise Men. Young Living emotional blends on the chakras offer infinite possibilities for deep and lasting shifts.

Compresses

Compresses are the only time water is recommended for applying essential oils. Water drives the oils into the skin, so care must be taken in choosing essential oils using this method. See CAUTIONS.

Hot chest compresses using RC, Raven or Fir are useful for congestion. A warm compress of Di-Tone on the stomach and colon can help to relieve digestive disturbances. A cool compress of Peppermint or Eucalyptus on the forehead may help to relieve a headache and migraine.

To prepare a compress, fill a bowl with hot, warm or cold water and add 3-6 drops an essential oil. Stir with your hand to disperse the oil over the top of the water. Lay a clean, cotton wash cloth or toweling on top of the water letting the water saturate the cloth. Wring out most of the water and lay over the appropriate area of the body. If using a hot or warm compress, lay dry towels over the wet compress and then cover with as many layers of heavy blankets as you can to contain the heat. For a longer hot compress, lay a hot water bottle or heating pad between the dry towels and blanket layers. A quick compress consists of applying the appropriate oils on the body with your hands and then cover with a hot or cold wet towel as appropriate. For hot compresses continue as described above.

Please read Usage and CAUTIONS thoroughly before using any essential oils.
