Here is a quick and easy essential oils 101 class for you.
Safety & Disclaimer
I’m not a doctor. I have no medical background and essential oil use should NOT replace regular medical attention. The things I’m sharing are from personal experience with Young Living essential oils ONLY. I cannot speak for other brands. Young Living’s sourcing process is unmatched, and that’s why I chose this brand. Young Living essential oils are potent and should be used hand-in-hand with research and education about essential oils. They should also typically be used with a carrier oil when applying directly to the skin (coconut oil, almond oil, etc.) There are certain oils that are regarded as safe for ingestion as per the FDA. Those oils are marked with a white vitality label. Otherwise, oils can be diffused or applied topically. Here’s an intro on the ones that had me at hello when I began my wellness journey.
