There are 3 schools of thought in aromatherapy. The aromatic method is from the German line of training, and is based on diffuser use. The topical method is the British school of thought. And the internal method comes from decades of French training. Young Living uses all three methods. If you hear contradictions in how to use oils online, it’s usually because one school is promoting its method over others. But all three are viable and all three work when done safely.
Aromatic tips + Hand cupping: drop the oil into the palm of your hand and breathe! + Diffuser jewelry: drop oils onto untreated wood, cork, felt, or lava stones and enjoy for 4-8 hours + Spritzers: 10 drops of oil in a small spray bottle with a pinch of salt as an emulsifier (I love the Young Living DIY kit with a spritzer inside! My favorite Young Living item is the Thieves cleaning bucket with an entire recipe book inside!) + Diffusers: Doctor Andrew Sledd, who is a pediatrician who specializes in Environmental Toxicology, says “it takes only 1 hour of burning a candle to produce the same effects as smoking a single cigarette.” One of my first ditches was all my candles and plug ins and car fresheners. They are poison.
How do you use the diffuser? Generally, 6-8 drops of oil. What if that’s too strong for you? The number of drops depends on what your body wants—it may want less or more on a given day. Oils you loved yesterday may repulse you today. So always revisit them. If they don’t smell good to you, grab one that does. If it’s too strong, put in fewer drops. If it’s not strong enough and your body craves it, add more. One day you may want 8 drops of lemon oil—the next, 1 or 2 may be strong.
