The most popular way to use essential oils is aromatically, which includes using a diffuser, inhaling oils from your hands, or using diffuser jewelry.
Diffusing is one of the best ways to experience oils. Certain essential oils, when diffused in the air, can be stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing can have amazing emotional benefits, and can purify air of some airborne pathogens and unwanted odors. No-heat diffusers are recommended because they do not change the chemical structure of the oil that is being diffused.
INHALING USING YOUR HANDS:
Add 1-2 drops of essential oil onto your hands and then rub your hands together. Cup your hands over your nose- breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Other ways of diffusing oils includes wearing diffuser necklaces or bracelets. These are typically made of clay, lava beads, suede, or some other material that will capture and slowly release the aroma, and require just a drop of oil.
Aromatic use is a particularly effective way to use oils for emotional support and stress or anxiety reduction.
