Where To Apply Topical Essential Oils
Very helpful tips.
Verrry. Helpful. But where can I get these oils? Look into Walmart. They had oils but they were not labeled essential oils
You are get these Essential Oils, at the best price around, direct from our website.
If you have a health food store lokie Akins or natural grocier like Sprouts they will carry them.
I buy all my oils from Bulk Apothecary and based on use I buy different grades…. those I put on skin with or without a base oil I use the better therapeutic and ingested I use the very best but for my diffuser I get the less expensive …. all their oils are great and reasonably priced.
Yes, but more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better. I’ve been using BulkApothecary oils for about four years now. The price of the oil doesn’t mean your getting a better quality. They come from different countries, that’s how I choose and lots of research including their agricultural treatments etc…
I am very interested in learning more. Thank you for this chart.
I’ve been wondering about where and how to use essential oils. Thank you for the chart.
Glad we could help! Essential Oils are awesome once used correctly.
Do these have to mixed with a carrier oil?
Yes, it is recommended that you dilute Essential Oils with a carrier oil. A suggested range for our oils is 0.5 oz to 1 oz of Essential Oil to a gallon of carrier oil base.
If I wanted to use it in a smaller, more individual application, what would the ratio be? Thanks!
I apologize, we don’t have an exact ratio for smaller applications; however, if we calculate it per ounce of carry oil it would be approximately 0.04 oz of Essential Oil to 1 oz of carrier oil.
Are the essential oils supposed to be mixed together for each area of the body, or do you use one or the other? For example, for shoulders, does the clove, wintergreen and ylang ylang have to be mixed together, or do you just use one of the three? If you are supposed to mix them, is it a 1:1 ratio? Thank you!
You can use one, or mix them using a 1:1 ratio. A little goes a long way!
how about hands – arthritis?
I have heard of frankincense being used orally and I am wondering if the theraputic grade is the type that would be used that way. Also would that be used full strength? I seen a video of a young woman with a tumor on her brain stem use it orally and it helped her
I apologize, we do not have food grade certification on our Essential Oils, and cannot recommend that they be used orally or ingested.
What is the base of a toe compared to the bottom of a toe
Do you use all three oils or any of three listed for the symptom being treated?
You can use one or create your own Essential Oil. blend.
What can be used in place of Lavender? It gives me migraine headaches.
Essential Oils are NOT TOPICAL. You can’t apply them to your skin unless they have been mixed with a carrier oil. As a company I use, you should know this about what you are selling. Don’t go ruining this market for us. You and others who profess you can use these topically, are so wrong. They are too concentrated. The could burn you, create a bad rash, make you so sick you have to go to the hospital and if you are using alot you could die.
Throughout the comments we recommended that they be mixed with a carrier oil.
In many cases you can definitly use them directly…for example toohache ..lavanda directly on tooth…
What is the difference between “base” and “bottom” of toe?
The base of the toe refers to the base of the toe bone; so when you bend your toe, the part from the bend to the starting point that bone is the base of the toe bone. The bottom of the toe is the underside of the toe in question.
Thanks so much!! 🙂
What oils is for back pain and legs and knees they want to replaced them I say hell no .
