Foot Bath – Methods of Use

Place one pound of salt in a tub of warm water and add approximately 10 drops of essential oil. This is very soothing to the feet and can be very energetically cleansing. The most energetically dirty part of the body is from the knee down and cleansing this area can impact the whole body (and the emotions).

Foot Bath is one of the many methods of using essential oils.

Liniment – Methods of Use

In a bottle, mix 10 to 20 drops of essential oil per ounce of alcohol and apply to the affected area. Do not use oils that are caustic or sensitizing. The use of rubbing alcohol is fine, but vodka is a much better carrier for this application. If sensitivities occur reduce the amount of essential oil or discontinue use. Shake well before every application.

Liniment is one of the many methods of using essential oils.

Ointment – Methods of Use

To make an ointment, add 20-25 drops of essential oil per ounce to a carrier oil (massage oil) and apply to a specific area. This should not be used as a massage oil due to its potency. Do not use caustic or sensitizing oils for this method.

Ointment is one of the many methods of using essential oils.

Sustained Inhalation – Methods of Use

Sustained Inhalation is done by inhaling essential oils directly from the bottle with long, slow, deep breaths. Inhale thru the nose and exhale thru the mouth for several breathing cycles. Sustained inhalation is a very effective method for applying essential oils and the most common method used during classes.

You may inhale directly from a bottle of oil, or from a rollerball, or you may place a drop of oil on a cotton swab or cotton ball and inhale from there. The use of a nasal inhaler is even more effective, if you have access to one. Or you can roll up small pieces of a paper towel, apply a few drops of oil to the piece of paper towel, and insert it partially to the nostril.

Sustained Inhalation is one of the many methods of using essential oils.
