How to Use Essential Oils Aromatically!
Diffusing: A good diffuser should use cool or room temperature air. This helps the oil remain air-bound for several more hours and does not affect the structure of the oil through heat, which can diminish the quality of the oil.
Nebulizer: A system that uses air pressure generated by compressing & vaporizing essential oils. A nebulizer allows finest particles to essential oil dispersed into the air.
Direct Inhalation: Directly inhaling the oil can be done by holding the bottle of essential oil a few inches from the nose and breathing in the aroma, or by adding a drop to the hands and cupping them over the mouth.
Indirect Inhalation: Adding a drop to a handkerchief, cotton ball, small square of fabric, shirt collar, hair, pillowcase, etc.,can all be beneficial.
Hot Water Vapour/Steam Tent: Heat a pot of water (not boiling), add 1-3 drops of essential oil, place a towel over your head while leaning over the water, and inhale the steam.
Fan, Vent, etc: Just like with the indirect inhalation, you can add the oil to a cloth and place it in a vent or even in front of a fan.
Personal Fragrance: Oils smell amazing and are safer and healthier for your body then commercial scents.
