Looking for a new way to stay refreshed and energized? Turn your whole day into an Essential Oil session by using essential oils in your daily routine, whether on their own or in specialized products at your favorite spot The R3 Spa.
Essential oils are aromatic, volatile liquids that are found within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. Sometimes called the “lifeblood” of the plant.
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.
Below we will bring you the benefits and use of essential oils, along with their benefits and tips for using them safely.
1. How to use essential oils: Aromatic
Aromatherapy is essentially inhaling essential oils. The easiest way to do so is by using a diffuser.
Mix 2-8 drops of essential oil with water into a diffuser. The diffuser breaks apart the oil into tiny molecules and disperses them through the air making the air freshen up.
2. How to use essential oils: Topical
Because of their molecular structure, essential oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. When applied topically, it takes about 20 minutes for an oil to affect every cell in the body. The oil is then metabolized within a few hours.
3. How to use essential oils: Ingestion
This is best done in conjunction with a health care professional with experience
4. How to use essential oils in a bath or shower:
To inhale essential oils while you shower, add a few drops to the shower walls and inhale deeply as you shower. Or add a few drops of diluted essential oil to a warm washcloth that can be used for inhalation and to gently exfoliate your body.
5. How to use essential oils in a humidifier:
To use essential oils in a humidifier, add a few drops into the water tank. The oil will naturally vaporize throughout the room. For best results, use a cool-mist and clean your humidifier regularly.
6. How to use Essential oil: MASSAGE
Bring oil to your next massage or give yourself a massage at home to ease tension and get circulation moving (or even help with cellulite!) Make your own massage oil by adding 15-20 drops diluted to 1/2 cup of carrier oil. Start by massaging the feet as it allows oils to quickly enter the bloodstream.
