Aromatic Use: Add water and a few drops of oil to a diffuser, put a drop in your hand and inhale. Or, spritz a little into the air. Simple and very effective for emotional purposes.
Topical Application: Apply directly to area affected or to locations such as inside of wrists, inside of elbows or bottoms of the feet. Blends may be applied one to five times a day. Remember, a little goes a long way. Always perform a skin patch test to make sure you have no allergies.
Even though our Farm dilutes the essential oils, it is recommended that you consult your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding when using an EO directly.
Children 2-6 years. Check with healthcare provider or research essential oils that can be used when diluted.
WHY DO YOU NEED ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils can aid in encouraging healing. They are effective on all of the body's systems: skeletal system, muscular system, circulatory system, endocrine system (hormones), respiratory system and immune system. They are used for emotional support, as well.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are aromatic liquids distilled from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, seeds and other parts of plants. It takes many plants to distill even one drop of essential oil, making them very potent and precious. Evidence of essential oil usage has been found dating back to the Babylonians and Egyptians. The chemistry of each essential oil is complex consisting of hundreds of unique chemical compounds. Pure essential oils have a chemical structure that allows them to pass through cell membranes.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ESSENTIAL OILS MARKET
There is no governing body in the U.S. that regulates the effectiveness, quality or purity of essential oils. Any oil can be labeled therapeutic grade, or pure, but there is no actual regulation on these claims. In fact, if there is at least 5% essential oil used, it can be marketed as pure. Our Farm uses oils that are CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade). What this means is that the company we purchase the oils from has put great effort into carefully planning each step of the essential oil production process - from the planting of seeds to the oils delivered to us (responsibly sourced, high quality essential oils).
