ESSENTIAL OILS

04/02/2018

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are liquids distilled from bark, roots, flowers, seeds, leaves and other parts of plants. Naturally, oils are meant to support the wellness and health of one’s body. There are three major ways to use essential oils; aromatically, topically, and internally! For a nice smelling home or office, use a diffuser to breathe in the oils. A ‘diffuser’ bracelet or even straight from the bottle are other ways to breathe in the oils and improve your mood. Oils are easily permeable to pass through the skin and disperse throughout the body. For topical use, essential oils can be mixed with carrier oils for safer and extended use of the oil. Lastly, some oils can be used internally, gotta make sure they are safe, intended for internal use, and FDA approved. These oils can be used in cooking and can even be added to your drinks!

Safety of oils

To store the oils, make sure they are in a cool and dark place. Citrus oils should be in glass containers and after applying topically, you should avoid direct sunlight since they are photosensitive. For topical application safety, use a carrier oil to dilute the oils. Some oils are safe for use with kids or during pregnancy, but it is recommended for research, reading studies and consulting with a health professional with any questions one may have.

Oils used in our office

Around Essence Chiropractic & Wellness, there are diffuser blends that change everyday, sometimes we even change the scents from morning to afternoon! Young Living is where our office purchases the oils, lotions, and cleaning supplies. Dr. Ashtiani has been purchasing from Young Living for years now and I recently purchased the Premium starter kit with diffuser. Can’t wait to start experimenting at home with different diffuser blends! Young Living has farms and distills their oils from “seed to seal,” meaning they seed, cultivate, and distill all of their products. It ensures the processing and purification of their oils. Young Living has a lot of different products besides just oils. From Home products, Healthy & Fit, Personal Care, Baby Care and Animal Care products. If you want to get your premium starter kit
