Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
|Using the Oils|
- What exactly are essential oils?Essential oils are natural extracts from the seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark and other parts of plants that are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs.
- How are the essential oils used and what for?They have been used for many different reasons historically, in a variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians used essential oils extensively to support their health, beauty treatment and food preparation. The Greeks also used essential oils for therapeutic massage and aromatherapy, while the Romans used them to promote health and personal hygiene. We are currently using them from A-Z in personal choices for enhancing and maintaining health and for supporting a wellness lifestyle, both physically and emotionally.
- How do I know what essential oils I need?There are many resources to learn about the different uses of individual essential oils, including online forums, others’ experiences, and guides. Each oil can support multiple health objectives, so we encourage you to just get them in you, on you or around you!
- What are all the different ways I can apply and use essential oils?Our essential oils can be applied or used in 3 different ways:
1.Topically (on or near the affected location),
2. Aromatically (diffused or by inhaling the scents), and
3. Internally (drops in the mouth, in drinking water or capsules).
- How often should I use essential oils?It varies depending on the situation. Only one or two applications may be sufficient to support you in reaching your goal. If you have bigger goals, you may consider multiple applications each day. There are many people and resources available to help guide you in your use of the oils.
- Should I dilute essential oils? If so, how?Diluting is not usually necessary, except in the case of “hot” oils, such as Oregano, Cinnamon, protective blend, Cassia, etc. In that case, we recommend applying them to the bottom of the feet or diluting them with a carrier oil such as as olive oil or fractionated coconut oil. For children, it may be a good idea to dilute the oils generally.
- How do I care for the oils?Good rules of thumb are to keep them stored in a cool, dark place and to keep the caps on when not in use.
- Can I put several oils on at once?Yes. When applying several oils, it’s best to layer them one at a time rather than combining them.
- What is the best way to take oils internally?With most pure essential oils, you can simply place a drop in your mouth, either directly or with your finger or in a drink. For “hot” oils, or if you don’t like the taste, you can put a few drops in a capsule and take it like a vitamin.
- How do you know what is the best way to apply an oil, or is there one application the works for all oils?There is not one single application that is best for every oil, as each oil and blend has its own recommended uses. Through experience and by tapping into the many educational resources, you can find the best practices for applying each oil in different situations.
- What should I expect when using essential oils?Again, it depends on the situation. Essential oils are an important part of a wellness lifestyle. Sometimes a difference is felt immediately, while other issues take more time for any effects to be felt. At a minimum, you can trust that applying our essential oils and other supplements, you are supporting your overall health and wellness objectives.
- How do I know when an oil is for the emotional side or the physical side?Studies have shown significant connections between our emotional and physical health. Each oil, therefore, can help with both emotional and physical concerns. Consult the wealth of educational resources to discover the many emotional and physical application for essential oils.
- What is the difference between single oils and blends?A single oil is just that: one 100% therapeutic grade essential oil, such as Lavender, Peppermint or Lemon. Oil blends are careful mixtures of multiple 100% pure essential oils, blended to maximize the benefits of the oils. For example, Serenity Blend is a mixture of Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang and Sandalwood.

- Are essential oils safe to use during pregnancy?As stated before, essential oils are desinged to support the body’s overall health, and many pregnant women have successfully used essential oils during pregnancy. Some oils should not be used during pregnancy, or only during certain stages. For example, Clary Sage should not be used until a pregnant woman is ready to deliver. Consult your doctor with any questions.
- If the oils really are so safe then why do some bottles not say ‘for dietary use’ in addition to topical and aromatic uses like some of their other bottles do? If they are perfectly pure and safe why wouldn’t all of their bottles indicate you could take them internally?
- Can anyone do the aroma therapy Technique? And can you mess it up or hurt someone?Yes, you can absolutely learn to do the aroma therapy Technique (ATT) for your family or friends by watching the video that comes with the kit; however, we strongly recommend that you become ATT certified to master the correct application and technique.

The plants are then skilfully distilled into 100% pure essential oils so as to provide the greatest benefit.

One of them will be to inform you of any housekeeping items for the week as well as what you will be learning in the upcoming week. Some leaders may also have an additional weekly call to answer FAQ’s that come up during the week or in your business. They are both a great resource for you to plug into.
