So you got a kit! Now what? First things first..
We’re excited for you to learn about your oils and get started using them!
And now to the best part.. how do I use them?!
There are 3 ways in which oils can be use.. aromatically, topically or internally.
DISCLAIMER!: Please follow the instructions on each individual product label. To ensure safety, only use pure essential oils, labeled as supplements and proven safe for dietary usage. Contact a medical professional with any questions regarding ingestion of essential oils.
When can I use the oils with plastics?
We know that essential oils interact with many forms of chemistry, including some plastics. Many varieties of plastics exist, some of which are more impervious to essential oils than others. While this is a concern, not all plastics are as delicate as others and not all essential oils affect plastics in the same way. Citrus oils, in particular, have a chemical composition that is known to interfere with the chemistry of plastics. We should only use plastics that will not breakdown when exposed to essential oils. For instance, Young Living uses plastic parts (lids, orifices, diffusers, etc.) that are made of HDPE plastic and will not be broken down by essential oils. Typically, HDPE plastic as well as plastics number 1 (PETE) and 2 are safe for use with essential oils. Another alternative is using vessels made of other materials such as glass or certain metals.
