Wondering why you would need to use Essential Oils?
Essential oils provide natural remedies and solutions that help your family reduce toxic exposures that cause health issues.

Essential oils can support your body through all health challenges as well as helping you reach your wellness goals!

3 ways to use essential oils:
Topically: Apply a few drops directly on your skin and rub it in. Some oils work best when combined with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, almond oil, or jojoba oil. This method helps promote quick absorption, immune support, and immediate comfort.
Aromatically: Use a diffuser to spread the essential oil into the air. You may also rub a few drops of oil in the palm of your hands and inhale. This method helps with mood, opens airways, and protects against environmental threats.
Internally: Place 1 to 2 drops under the tongue or mix in water and drink. You can also place the drops in an empty capsule (available at most health foods stores) and swallow. Always read oil bottle label to ensure the oil can be used this way. This method helps support digestive issues, comforts the mouth and throat, and supports the immune system.
How To Dilute Essential Oils for Topical Use:
Diluting essential oils helps to ensure you don't experience any skin irritation and helps to drive the essential oil into the skin versus evaporating into the air. Dilution doesn't weaken the effectiveness of essential oil. To dilute, choose a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil for example) then add drops of essential oil to it according to the age of the user. My favorite carrier oil is here: http://bit.ly/2HTiWeH. I recommend putting the carrier and essential oils in a rollerball for clean and easy usage. My favorite ones are here: https://amzn.to/2KBPYBN
3-12 months old: 1-3 drops in a 10ml roller bottle (0.5-1% dilution)
1-7 years old: 3-9 drops in a 10ml roller bottle (1-3% dilution)
8-15 years old: 9-15 drops in a 10ml roller bottle (3-5% dilution)
16+ years old: 15-30+ drops in a 10ml roller bottle (5-10+% dilution)
