What’s the Difference Between an Essential Oil and a Vitality Dietary Essential Oil?

There are three ways to use essential oils, and one of the ways is to ingest them into bodies.

One of the most common ways to use essential oils is AROMATICALLY, breathing them in through our nose. The aroma of essential oils can have a positive impact on our mood and overall well-being, and they can help purify the air naturally. There is a great deal of research on the aromatic use of essential oils available. You can diffuse essential oils in your home and your car. And you can place a drop or two on your hands, cup your hands over your nose, and inhale that way. Some people enjoy wearing a drop of their favorite essential oil on a diffuser necklace!

The next way to use therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living is TOPICALLY, right on the skin. Essential oils have a small molecular size and are quickly absorbed. When you apply an essential oil topically, it’s in all the body’s cells within 15–20 minutes, helping the body maintain optimal health at the cellular level! Sometimes essential oils can be used full-strength, or diluted, on the skin. When diluting Essential oils you want to use with an organic vegetable oil such as coconut, almond, or olive oil — called a carrier oil — before topical use. In general, you should dilute most essential oils before using them topically on a baby or small child. And some essential oils such as oregano or cinnamon are “hot” or may irritate the skin when used undiluted, so they should usually be used diluted. Next, it’s best to dilute an essential oil for topical use if it will be used over a large surface area such as in a massage. When in doubt, dilute!

The third way you can use Young Living’s therapeutic-grade essential oils is INTERNALLY. Young Living has a line of essential oils labeled for internal use called the Vitality Essential Oil line. Internal use of Young Living’s Vitality essential oils can help support the systems of the body, and is a great way to help maintain optimal health! To use internally, add a drop or two to your recipes or a glass of water. Be sure to use glass — never plastic or Styrofoam. You can make homemade capsules by adding a few drops of an essential oil to a blank gelatin capsule along with a few drops of olive oil. Add the top of the capsule, shake, and take with water. Please, please, please DO NOT ingest any oils that are not made by Young Living!
