"Plants have always provided for human life. They have nourished us with food, provided shelter, and supplied medicine - time tested medicine from the wisdom of the earth combined with the wisdom of the universe."
- Dr. Malte Hozzel

Methods for Using Essential Oils

Before using any oil on the skin you should always test a small spot on the back of your hand for sensitivity. If a stinging or burning effect is felt use carrier oil or unscented lotion to dilute the essential oil. Do not use water. Water will increase the burning effect. It is a good idea to purchase a Therapeutic Essential Oil Guide and follow the guidance in it.

Direct Application

Always test a small area before applying oil directly to the skin. Some oils have a burning effect on the skin and can actually cause a mild burn. If you feel a burning sensation use massage oil or lotion to relieve the burning sensation. Do not use water as water can actually increase the burning effect.

Place two or three drops in one palm and rub palms together then inhale and rub lightly over the skin. Essential oils can be diluted in a carrier oil, lotion or aloe vera gel. Experiment with the strength and adjust to a higher dilution if there is skin irritation.

To start: 5 drops of essential oil in 1/2 teaspoon of unscented product.

Body Oil & Lotion

20 drops of essential oil to 2 ounces of carrier oil or fragrance-free lotion is standard. Sensitive skin may require a lower amount, such as 10 drops in 2 ounces.


Essential oils in a Bath combines the restorative effects of both water and essential oils. They are perfect to relieve muscle strain, soothe skin conditions, and promote emotional balance. Use 8-10 drops to a full tub of water.

It is best to add the essential oil after you have immersed yourself, so you receive the full benefits of the oils as they begin to diffuse in the warm water. Some oils that cause a burning effect should not be used in the bath. Check the Essential oil guide.


Inhale the fragrance, three or four times, through the nose directly from the bottle or from a tissue sprinkled with 4 drops of essential oil. You can also place two drops in one palm, rub palms together and inhale deeply three or four times.

Chest Rub

To assist respiration and relieve congestion, dilute 5 – 10 drops of essential oil such as eucalyptus, fir, rosemary, or spike lavender in 1/2 ounce of carrier oil and apply to chest and upper back.


After your shower, put 3-5 drops of essential oil in your hands and rub them together. While your skin is till damp from the shower, quickly and evenly spread the oil over your arms, legs, and torso and allow to dry.


Diffusers disperse essential oils into the air with a cool air stream or gentle warmth. They are ideal for cleansing and purifying the air and for creating a mood-setting, fragrant atmosphere.

Foot Bath

Use 2-4 drops in a tub of water. Adjust the temperature of the water to suit your needs: cool water invigorates and energizes, warm water sedates and relaxes.


A compress is a clean, damp, folded cloth that has been infused with essential oils and applied to the skin. You can use either warm or cool water to wet the cloth then add 5 drops of essential oil.


Put one drop of essential oil on the hot rocks or mix 5 drops of essential oil in one cup of water and pour over rocks.


Using aromatics for meditation and spiritual focus has been used for thousands of years. Diffuse in the area or put a drop in your hands, rub them together and inhale the aroma.


Misting is a convenient way to impart the enticing aroma of essential oils in the room or on your skin. Fill an 8 ounce mister bottle with pure water and 20-30 drops of essential oils. Shake vigorously each time before misting.


Anointing is an ancient, spiritual practice used to bless, show recognition, offer protection, and to heal. Anointing literally means "to touch with oil." Use 4 drops of essential oil mixed in 1 teaspoon of jojoba or olive oil.
