There are three basic methods for using essential oils so that you can make the most of their healing powers for your mind, body and soul. The oils can be used alone so that you get the healing powers of the single essential oil you want to use or you can make a synergistic blend of oils. By mixing two or more essential oils together, you are creating a chemical blend that is different from any of its parts. Blends are powerful and with them you can have increased potency without increasing the dosage.

The first method of use is the body method which includes using the oils as perfume, sniffed on a tissue, inhaled as a vapor, or massaged onto the body in a carrier oil. Next  are the water methods including baths, bidets, douches, jacuzzis, saunas, showers, sitz baths, hand baths, or foot baths. Lastly, we have the room methods which include candles, diffusers, light bulbs, humdifiers, radiators and heaters, room sprays, water bowls, and wood fires. We will explore these methods further this week.
