What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the volatile, fragrant molecules in a plant that actively work to help promote systematic regulation and healthful modification of cells. There are three ways to use essential oils: aromatically, topically, and internally. It takes 20 minutes for an essential oil to reach every cell in your body from the time you apply them. There are around 40-100 trillion cells in our bodies, and one drop of essential oil contains over 40 million trillion molecules! This means every single cell in our body, in 20 minutes, is covered by 400,000 to 1 million essential oil molecules.

AROMATIC
Smell the essential oil directly from the bottle, drip a drop into your hand and rub hands together then cup over nose to breathe in, or use a cold water diffuser by dripping 4-6 drops into the water to diffuse for 1-4 hours. Place a drop into your palm and cup over nose to breathe in the aroma.

TOPICAL
Place a drop into your palm and rub the essential oil on the back of the neck, bottom of the feet, wrists, spine, or anywhere there is a need. Add carrier oil when needed.

INTERNAL
Only use essential oils that are labeled specifically for consumption from the Vitality™ line. You may add a drop or two into an empty capsule and top off with a carrier oil, use a drop under your tongue, add a drop to a glass or stainless steel water bottle, or combine a drop with an edible item. You may also cook with the Vitality™ essential oils.
