There is virtually no limit to how essential oils can be used. We often use them topically or aromatically, in cooking, and cleaning, as a fragrance, in massage, or even on animals! They are useful, powerful allies in our quest for wellness.
The Basics Each essential oil can contain hundreds of different chemical compounds. Essential oils are highly concentrated and are more powerful than dried herbs. An essential oil is a volatile substance derived from a plant that contains the natural smell and characteristics of that plant.
The Origins Essential oils are distilled from botanicals such as flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. Distillation requires carefully maintain low pressure and low temperature to preserve the fragile constituents of essential oils. There are for main distillation methods: steam distillation, absolute oil extraction, resin tapping, and cold pressing. The most common method, steam distillation, permeates the botanical with steam, drawing essential oils out of the raw plant matter.
The three main uses of essential oils are Aromatic, Dietary, & Topical.

There are several great things about rollerball bottles. They are premade mixtures – which saves time when something hurts; they are easy to apply – roll it on your feet, your neck, your wrists and you are ready to go. They also stretch out oils, making them last longer by using a carrier oil. By using a carrier oil, you are not diluting the effectiveness of the oil, you are just giving your oil more coverage with help of something to carry it where you want it to go. All of the following can be made with oils from a Premium Starter Kit. See my Google Doc for more suggestions with other Young Living Oils. Here are a few things you need to know and have before you can make your roller bottles: 5 or 10 mL glass roller bottles (can be found on Amazon) Carrier Oil (see Carrier Oil section) Essential Oils

Carrier oils are usually overlooked because they don’t contain the therapeutic constituents of other essential oils, but they can play an indispensable companion of topically applied oils. Let’s take a closer look at these carriers and why they deserve a place on the shelf of anyone who uses and loves essential oils!
What Are Carrier Oils? Carrier oils are naturally derived from vegetarian sources and have a neutral smell. They aren’t volatile like essential oils, which makes them an excellent medium for dilution and application. Below are some of the more popular carrier oils: Young Living V-6 Oil Jojoba Oil Olive Oil Fractionated Coconut Oil (What I use) Grapeseed Oil Shea Butter You can buy these from Young Living, Amazon, and several are available in local stores. The one I use has a pump, but several people use an amber glass bottle with dropper to store their carrier oil. This allows for ease of dropping into mixes.
How Are Carrier Oils Used? Essential oils are volatile, which means they evaporate rapidly and contain the natural smell and characteristics of the plant. This can make them too strong to apply undiluted. Carrier oils do not evaporate or have a strong aroma, making them the perfect pair for diluting especially strong essential oils—reducing the concentration of the essential oil without altering its therapeutic qualities. When you dilute an essential oil with a carrier oil, you can also control its concentration before applying. Carrier oils can vary widely in their consistency, absorption, aroma, shelf life, and other characteristics. Carrier oils can be blended to change or combine their properties, so you can mix and match until you find the blend that’s just right for you!
Vita Flex is said to have had a long past, but perfected in the 1960’s by a man named Stanley Burroughs. The Vita Flex technique means “vitality through the reflexes”. Many people are familiar with reflexology and this is similar to that. We have a complete network of reflex points on our bodies that stimulate all of our internal body systems. This technique is often times done on the feet (see chart below) and focused in on the body system you’d like to support. Using the pads and nails of your fingers (it’s good to have short nails), you use a rolling motion going from pads and all the way over to the topside of your nail(s). This produces an electrical stimulation into the body through the reflex points. The pressure used should be light to medium. Repeat this rolling and releasing technique until the entire vita flex point or area is covered. Place a drop or two in your left hand and take the pads of your fingers on your right hand and rub in the oils (usually in a clockwise motion). Finally, apply it to the foot on the lower half, above the heel as shown on the chart. Make sure and do the rolling and releasing motion all across the foot to make sure and get all those digestive organs. Repeat it for the other foot.
New to essential oils ... how to use them. Each bottle of Young Living essential oil is labeled with directions for how that oil can be used, and these directions vary based on location. Please consult with the product label for appropriate use directions.
Essential oils are NOT water-soluble, they are oilsoluble. If an oil were to get in your eyes or begins to burn your skin a little, DO NOT try to remove the oil with water – it will only drive it in deeper. Use a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or Young Living’s V-6, to dilute an oil if you have used too much.
Some oils are photosensitive, meaning they should not be used on your skin before exposure to direct sunlight or UV rays. Using a photosensitive oil prior to sunlight or UV exposure could lead to pigmentation changes or rashes or cause your skin to burn. Photosensitive oils include lemon, orange, grapefruit, mandarin, bergamot, angelica, etc. A oil reference book can provide in-depth guidance on which oils are photosensitive.
Caution should be used in pregnancy… when using oils containing constituents with hormone-like activity such as clary sage, sage, and fennel. Please reference the Gentle Babies guide book for any pregnancy/childbirth questions.
Dilute oils for infants and small children… 1-2 drops of pure essential oil to 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of pure vegetable oil (coconut, V-6, etc.). Many essential oils are appropriate for use with children and they should be diluted prior to use. Some YL products are pre-diluted with carrier oil as indicated on product label and are intended for direct application on children. Check a reference guide for more specific information.
Do not drop oils directly in the ear canal, though they can be used diluted on the outer back area of the ear, under the ear lobe, and down the throat. Oils can also be placed on a cotton ball, which can then be placed in the ear.
Keep oils away from light and heat (over 90 degrees). They can maintain their maximum potency for many years if stored properly.
Dilute or stop applying an oil if it causes discomfort. Either stop applying the oils to make sure the body isn’t detoxifying too quickly, or dilute the oils until the body catches up with the releasing of toxins.

One of my favorite things about this company is their generous referral incentives. While "selling" Young Living products isn't for everyone, you can easily make a few extra bucks and help pay for your new oils addiction by just telling a friend or two about how much you are loving your oils! I mean, I tell people all the time about how much I love my FitBit, but FitBit doesnâ€™t send me a referral check! Every time a new member signs up with your Membership Number, Young Living gives you a $50 bonus check! Checks are mailed out or auto deposited on the 20th of every month. It's SO FUN to get $50 for just telling someone you love a product! And, just think about it, if you tell 3 people, you've just gotten your Premium Starter Kit paid for! The only requirement is that you have to spend at least 50 PV (Product Value) in that month. So, for example, your Mom signs up with a Premium Starter Kit and enters your membership number on the 1st of the month. You have until the end of the month to make a 50 PV order to be eligible to receive the Bonus. That's why I always say "Let's get those oils paid for!"
