What is an essential oil?

Essential Oils are made from plants for physical and emotional benefits. They are distilled from leaves, flowers, tree bark, seeds, or rind of fruit in concentrated amounts. Typically one drop of a dTERRA® essential oil has a powerful effect making them affordable at just pennies per use! View a short video clip introducing essential oils.

How do I use essential oils?

You will soon learn that there are hundreds of ways to use dTERRA® essential oils, including relaxation, personal hygiene, household cleaning, cooking, and supporting a healthy body. Every oil has at least one of three application methods: Aromatic, Topical, or Internal.

For Aromatic Use ~ Breathe in or use a diffuser to open up airways, improve mood, or freshen the air.

For Topical Use ~ Use a carrier oil when applying to bottoms of feet or affected areas to target specific needs.

For Internal Use ~ Drop in water, under the tongue, or in the veggie capsule to support mouth, throat, digestive system, or overall health.

What are some basic safety tips?

1) Photosensitivity - No sunbathing after applying citrus essential oils. Citrus oils are sensitive to the sun since they are made from the rind of the fruit. Avoid direct sunlight to the exposed area for at least 12 hours of that location may have a skin irritation or burn. Oils applied underneath clothing should be fine.

2) Hot Oils - If it starts to burn, skip the water. Use a carrier oil or whole fat milk. Because essential oils don't mix with water, applying water to the area can actually drive the burn in deeper. Ouch!

3) Avoid These Areas - Never put essential oils in your eyes, inside the ear canal, or up nose. However, you may apply oils around the eye bone in a C shape, on-ear cartilage and behind ear bone, or diffuse essential oils.

4) Dilution - Use a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil when applying essential oils topically to avoid skin sensitization.

5) Safe Storage - The majority of all adverse reactions to essential oils by children have been as a direct result of accidental overdose and ingestion in large amounts. Keep out of reach of children. Use childproof safety caps.
